Hellow fellow growers (day 50) took some juicy sticky bud dslr pics outside while i was flushing my plants been flushing for about 1 week not fully today i flushed all plants with about 3 gallons of phed to 6.5 cold water i can see the fade coming. The tips of the leaves on the bud are turning purple sativa hybrid one was smelling musty outdoor i can smell it proabbaly 4 feet away from me. Smells like that iconic cookies smell and skunky while the indica one smell is more on the side of cofee citrus waxy pepper smell. Im thinking of chopping her down around day 56-63 mark ill just watch my plants and let them tell me when there ready . Im seeing mosty cloudy trichomes i dont want alot of amber last time i did that and the bud was frosty but didnt look the best and always made me sleepy. my theory is that cloudy trichomes mean when theyre ready and you cant make a sativa plant have a indica high by waiting till 50 % trichomes are amber i believe there ready when they visually look red golden hairs and all and mainly have a all cloudy trichomes and maybe a few ameber but way to much amber is just sleep medicine. I believe i have the gelato #41 buds are frosty but somewhat remian light green but the leaves turn purple. This is the last stretch and i waited long but its the name of the game should get a decent yeild buds are pretty big already and its the first week of the last push of the plant building more weight and trichome. Even got a branch that has almosted snapped but the branch treated it like a lst and kinda popped up with a hump in the stem. Im also getting worried that the whole thing will topple over before i fully flush it but if thay happens then i guess it mean for me to chop. Happy growing :grin::the_horns::skin-tone-4::v::skin-tone-4: Any hate comments and trolls accepted :joy: just playing any tips on flushing or anything grow related to up my game or tricks will be appreciated !.

Hello fellow growers 1 week back i started seeing yellow on the tips or edges of leaves i thought maybe im not feeding it enough so i fed it 2 ml of sensei grow part a and b which is 1/2 tsp per a and b in a gallon jug now im seeing yellow spots on the leaves thanks for your hel

Looks kind of like a potassium deficiency due to the yellowing along the edges and between veins. What medium are you growing in? What are you phing the water to? It might not be that you aren't feeding enough, it could be that the ph you are watering with is locking out that nutrient. You want your water to be around 6.5 ph if you are in soil and 5.8 if you are in a soilless or hydro medium. You can be a little below or above that number but if you are too high or too low the plant cant uptake what it needs.

Hi @UpncomingGreenthumb! Pistils can be a clue, if you noticed that new pistils have stopped appearing and old pistils have almost all turned red/brown and curly, but the best way to ensure it's the right time is to look at the trichomes with a magnifier/microscope. Clear/Transparent/Thin trichomes mean it's too soon, Milky/Cloudy/Fat trichomes mean the harvest window is open, Amber trichomes mean the harvest window is ending, and THC is degrading (less THC, more CBD/CBN). Looking at your last pictures, I think your buds are ready, or almost ready. As long as most of the trichomes have turned from clear and thin to fat and milky you know the 'harvest window' is open, even if you don't see any amber. Harvesting too soon (too many clear trichs) will result in a uplifting/energetic effect but you will lose some terpenes & oil potential. Waiting longer (too many amber trichs) will result in a heavy stone/couchlocking effect. Hand-held microscopes can be found for a few dollars on the internet or at your local growshop. Hope this will help, keep us up-to-date and happy growing :facepunch:

Looking good! I'd start flush and go and buy 20x-40x loop and start checking trichomes to decide the exact tdate when to harvest. Pistils are good way to somehow know that I'm getting there but the last decission on cut down should be made on trichomes.:wink::+1:
Scuzzlebut answered grow question 1 year ago
I would plan for a Day 60+ harvest and re-evaluate from there. Typically plants run towards the end of the Breeders flowering time. I recommend harvesting when the trichomes are at the stage where you like your high. I recommend 10% amber to give you a good terpene profile too. The buds just get better looking the longer you go. The last 2 weeks are the hardest haha! Good luck and Happy Growing!! :muscle:

@UpncomingGreenthumb, That sounds great! The flush is not as important as keeping your plants healthy all the way through.

@Scuzzlebut, thank you im def not plannin to harvest it still got about a week or 10 days planning for a day 60 chop gunna run 3 gallons of water thru my 3 gallon pot every flush i know your supposed to out 3x the amount of your pot but last time that made me get bud rot they were on one of my llants the buds were drying on the vine and 9 gallons theu a 3 pot sounds insane 3 gallons is enough im guessing.

Pistils turning is not an on / off switch thing, new ones will grow as the older turn. If the thricomes are ready, then harvest.

@Athos, thank you for your feed back:grin::+1::skin-tone-4::pray::skin-tone-4: my leaves are still green defiantley getting the ppm lower as the leaves are visually turning light green to what they were no sign of yellowing or fading just some purple hues on the buds leaves so imma take it another week of flushing (day 56 or somewhere between 60 days) each plant with 3 gallons of phed water dont want any harsh black ash smoke the trichs are in their prime see a few clear ones no amber . Right now the smells in the grow are insane musty purply waxy citrus its a symphony of smells
