I’d never grow a strain that took that long indoors. Waste of money. 8 weeks is ideal. 7 is primo. 9 weeks is max for me. I had a 10 week strain (wedding crasher) and I don’t have the patience for that.

Why is it a waste of money? If i can grow a strain that gives me more satisfaction at the expense of time,I consider the fast maturing strain that doesn't satisfy a waste of money. To each their own.

I believe the 8 or 9 weeks. But 7 weeks to fully ripen a plant? Im not buying into that one. Ive never heard of it happening or seen it happen.

You could also just have them in the back of your flower room while you cycle out other plants as they finish before them 🤷‍♂️

That brings up a point of curiosity for me. Is it possible to make buds ripen faster through say light deprivation, etc.?

I don't believe so. If you were to try it i dont think the flowering time would be any different. What i do think would change is the bud/plant size due to the less hours of light. Giving a photoperiod 8 hours of light vs 12 i feel would be like growing an auto straight 12/12.

Reducing light only proves to reduce the amount of energy the plant can generate. They do need less and less as they reach the finish line, but I don't think that's a variable that yields much reward to those who play with it.
Use genetics to reduce flowering time for best effect.

I love the Colombian high, but it takes too long. Even the hybrids were 75-80 days.
Do you have the link for the seeds for this Colombian strain? Is the high intense? I'd like to take a look, you have my curiosity piqued.

I'm looking for an absolute MONSTER high that's going to knock me on my ass and keep me there for hours (not literally, but you get the drift). If these kush plants I'm growing right now don't produce the intended effect I'm seeking I need to begin a search elsewhere.

I don’t know if it’s correct, but I start counting as soon as I see the first blonde pubic hair.

If I find a pair of blondies I start the clock.

I don’t have enough experience to tell if that’s accurate or not.

I would throw the breeder timeline in the trash. Its completely useless and doesnt mean anything in my opinion. Not one single plant ive grown has finished in the breeders said timeline. Currently growing a "9 week finisher" and im in the 13th week of flower now with no sign of it finishing within the next 2 weeks.
GS -- can be 'selective if you did everything 100% correct they will turn out to this timeline; probably strain specificity. The flower 'time clock' is right at the 12/12 flip to flower and then wait....and wait....and keep the mold and bugs away...and take out your loupe (for the 12,658th time) and send a post asking if it is 'done'. Also partial harvest if you've got top heavy buds blocking lower sections of the plant...(I resemble that remark). Now I'm waiting and being attentive.

I tried the partial harvest thing once and the second harvest was trash compared the the first. Im an all or nothing kind of guy.

Yeh that song about know when to walk away and know when to run was 100% not written for me, I'm really patient and can wait in the sitting room or sit in the waiting room.

Yeah i can wait for the entire plant to finish. Making one harvest into two just seems like unnecessary work IMO.

Im indica lover and there is few strains/phenos who was ready at 7 weeks but mostly 8-9 weeks they are ready. Depends when you start counting flower days (after few pistils). 🙂

I’ve never had one. But my buddy has a blue berry strain that def finishes in 7 weeks.

I’ve never seen a billion dollars. I know it exists though
