No problems at all. Smell is increasing, buds feel very sticky. Our goal with this grow was to get a harvest of 120g. Our daily need of medicine is about 0.3 g, so this would be enough for one whole year.
Judging from the general appearance, are they ready for harvest? Trichomes will not turn amber at all. NL is at day 98 now, the WW at day 100. Or are my eyes really that bad already? On the other hand I'm sure I correctly did spot amber trichomes on already harvested NL#1. Thanks
Hello ! At that point you can cut if you don't really want amber trichomes as they should have produce a lot of them already. But if you'r looking at the trichomes without a magnifier or a loupe then you will never now your true trichomes maturation ratio. Hope it will help you :grin::+1:
Week 16 is beginning and I'm still waiting for more trichomes to turn amber. The top buds of both plants feel hard as rocks meanwhile. But at the same time, they do no longer feel sticky or oily. Is this normal or did I mess up by waiting too long?
Are the trichomes all milky white? Or do you still see clear trichomes? If milky white, you are safe to harvest at will. It will be more of an energetic high, than a couch lock high - but I prefer that personally. You can continue to wait another week or two also if you prefer to wait for amber. Its really up to you. The pics are beautiful by the way, well done! :+1:
Hello Buddha! Your biggest enemies for year preservation is the oxygen, the humidity and the heat. In other words you want to create an anhydrous oxygen free atmosphere for your weed. Here is how i would do it. Place your weed and a silica jel pack in a jar and also put in the jar a chunk of dry ice and close the lid loosely so a little bit of co2 from the dry ice can escape. When a decent amount of dry ice will sublime and you can see a fog in the jar that means that most of the air with oxygen and moister has pushed out of the jar but don't close the jar yet because you may create a bomb of compressed co2 :sunglasses:. Wait until the chunk of dry ice has gotten small and you can still see some fog. Seal the jar and put it in the freezer ( by this way you also creating a little bit higher pressure which lowers the boiling point of terpenes and drops their evaporation rate ) . By this way you can create the best conditions for long preservation. After this point it all depends form how tight seal the jar has! Happy growing ! :facepunch:
