Hello @Alquimista ! You definitely have 2 maybe 3 weeks more until its done. For an accurate harvest check the trichomes with a microscope like this ( ). Harvest when trichomes are 80% milky 20% amber for a mind effect and 80% amber 20 % milky for a body effect. Happy growing ! :facepunch:

Outdoor growing usually takes a little more time than indoors, that been said, no strain will finish in 6 weeks of flower, no matter what the breeder says, at the least you are looking at 8 weeks. The buds still have some fattening up to do.

I agree with @Stick and @ExperimentGREEN. It all depends on what effect you are looking for. I learned to use the flowering time from the breeders as a time reference for my planing. But in the end, only the girls will tell you when they are ready. The information in the 2 following links has been very useful for me and I wish I had read that info before my first 2 grows: :facepunch:

Hello Almquista, at first Congrats to you homemeade fertilisers your plant looks great. If I look onto her i would say she can flower 3 more weeks, the Hairs of the Flowers are white, If they getOrange/brown your plant ends herLife cycle. If you see taht and the trichomes age changing you can start her to flush. In the comments i let you a link with pictures of ready to Harvest Plants and a link for flushing... Happy growing. and gotta read your diary complete iam nosey for your fertilisers.Hope you told us how you didi it

hey man, depends a bit if you want to bet on foxtails but based off your pics I would say those trykes are cloudy, end of the day you get to choose, only way to really see though is to get that microscope seems 70x is just a tad too much for our eyes to strain even when you get real close. Take a peak you might be surprised ! I was pretty surprised for my MSC she got all cloudy and curled over night almost, see for yourself ! Gonna follow for that harvest pic and those ferts seem cool ! :rocket:

I personally don't typically go along with the breeders time frame. Too many different circumstances and factors to consider that are surely different from what Dinafem did during their grow. Heat, humidity, nutrients(cool on creating your own nute line up), lights, location. I cant quite tell from trichrome photo but if pistils have swollen and curled inwards and the trichs are basically all milky with some amber then youre good. The plant looks great and healthy already. Way to go!

Hi @Alquimista! Indeed, she needs a few more days. Most of the pistils should turn to brown/red and will curl/dry. Trichomes should evolve from clear/transparent/thin to opaque/milky/fat. Any cheap magnifier/microscope will help you to find the perfect harvest window by taking a daily look at her trichomes. For an uplifting/energetic high, you better cut once most of the trichomes are cloudy (THC will be at its peak). If you rather like a couchlocking/relaxing effect, wait for 20%-30% of the trichomes to turn amber/red/brown (Less THC but more CBD/CBN). Hope this will help, keep us up-to-date and happy growing :facepunch:
