Agreed. Have to look deep into the buds for trichome maturity. When the last of those white pistols recede and die back look for as close to 100% cloudy big head trichomes. The amber and degraded looking ones on the bud leaves don’t matter as they can mature early and they take a beating.
I will try to take better pics, but am I missing something? I don’t even see 10% of the calyx trichs becoming milky.
I just started flush when I watered Monday night. Using florakleen to flush it.
Edit: the fan and sugar leaves definitely look like shit, but I haven’t pushed N in almost a month so I believe that is the primary reason the leaves look like hell. I am trying to make sure the sugar leaves don’t decay while the buds finish maturing.
Agreed. I am a little disappointed with the trichs, I feel the potency/intensity will be lacking due to the clear trichs. I don’t know what I did differently, most of my other grows have developed milky trichs.
