Autos are flowering wonderfully
Photos have had a nice grow! 1 of them , the Critical+, seems to have started to flower! It surprised me as its still late August and they are getting just over 13 hours of daylight.. although it has been coudy/rainy the past week so maybe that had to do with it(?) I guess not much I can do about it huh
I'm still not using the flowering nutes as they seem to be getting all they need atm, i added bat guano towards thew lower half of the soil so I guess that they are happy with it.

Anyways, noob question: How do I know when my plants are ready to harvest? :sweat_smile:

Grow Questions
ghendrix week 3 started grow question 4 years ago
Hi, the bottom leaves have gone yellow on some of them and they have little white spots on the bigger leafs, I have detected whiteflies and assuming that this is caused by them but can anyone confirm this for me or is there another problem I don't know about?? Thanks guys!

Hey, hey if you’ve id’d white flies then I’d start with neem oil as the general “fix-all”. Or if you’ve sourced another foliar spray then perfect - apply and see what happens. Based on your feeding sched. The yellowing prob. Isn’t nute burn. If you’re referring to the cotelydons then they may simply be dying off. I wouldn’t worry too much about this until/if it starts to translate to the actual leaves. I’ve seen it before myself but not until somewhat later. No need to worry just yet though - monitor and see how it goes. :facepunch::+1: good luck dude!

You know when to harvest based on the trichomes. You will need a magnifier 60x will do, 100x is better. This can be anything from a jewelers loop to a digital WiFi microscope. I got the WiFi scope for pictures of the trichomes. You should google this, you will find charts indicating the different effects based on the trichomes appearance. :muscle:

@Tazard, Thankyou! I will keep this in mind, buying a 60-120x microscope thing on amazon today :D

@ghendrix, to avoid paranoia I’d harvest at 0-5% amber with 80-100% cloudy. Based on my experience unless you want a sedative or narcotic pain relief this is the best harvest time for the peak of ripeness and THC.

@Tazard, oh this is very good info! I have a tendency towards anxiaty and get paranoia quite easily! They are already high CBD strains (2:1 ratio CBD to THC)
So do they go more amber over time? if so I would want to be harvesting later rather than sooner right?

Lookn good dude - and yeah, the critical looks to be starting flower but you’ll know for sure in a couple days. Re: when to harvest - get yourself a jewellers loupe (small magnifying glass). Once she starts to develop trichomes (small crystals that look like little transparent mushrooms) you’re gonna wait until they look cloudy/milky as opposed to clear/transparent. Once all of em are milky (I personally wait until some are starting to turn a little Amber in colour), then your good to chop and dry. Hope it helps - you still got another 5 weeks or so. :+1::facepunch::+1:
