Thumbs up cool!

Hey Unpossible...

How lovely! (Your buds.)

Thanks on the suggestion. My bamboo sticks are ready and waiting.

By the way, the pic's are from a week ago. More bud action now than then, of course.

Can't wait, man...

Exclamation urgent question

Hi,

Well, going by the documented average flowering time, I was to harvest June 30 (this past Monday). Now, if I go by the following (from a site):

Harvest when 70-90% of hairs have darkened for a more calming, anti-anxiety effect as some THC turns to CBN.

This is what I want.

I don't seem to be all that close and my concern is my flush duration may become too long. I am pretty sure I already flushed for 7 days at June 30.

Another uncertainty I have is it appears the % darkened hairs varies with bud. Top buds higher % darkened and lower buds less so.

Well, if anyone can help me out here as to what to do about a long flush duration and when to harvest, that would be great. As of now, it seems to me this coming Monday at the earliest - July 7.

Do you have a scope or loupe? At least 30X. With that you can get a better look at the trichomes, which is a better way to judge ripeness as opposed to the hairs. If you want a more sedating effect you will want more of the trichs to be amber.

Sometimes flowers ripen at different times on the plant, it varies by strain.

Took the words right out of my mouth Betterhaff! The hair color will vary from strain to strain at different levels of maturity. Many have lost all the hairs before any trichomes turn amber. For $12.99, Radioshack carries a hand held scope, 60 - 100% magnification. Handy little bugger! Has built in light, but burns through batteries pretty quick. It will help you tune in the exact effect you want in your bud. Customized for YOUR pleasure (or med)!
