Bronhitis started grow question 3 years ago
What is your opinion so far? Should i change anything?

Based on photos, how far away is harvest for the first plant (bottom left - biggest flowers)?

Will buds fatten more, or will they remain hairy?

Buds. Not fattening

Hello ! Based on your photo , they are coming along nicely , your bud are still in a early stage so I would not be affraid about fattening , they are nice and will get more volume soon. Still based on the photo it's hard to tell you when they will be ready but you can wait for 4 more weeks at least, northern light are good buds producer so I'll wait for big buds to shows up. According to your yellow lower leaves your plants have a slight nitrogene deficiency but at that stage it's not really an issue because at that stage plants mostly needs PK and will use the stocked N by making lower leaves yellowing and fall. If you go 4 more weeks then the next(s) feeding will provide enough nutrient to let her make fat buds. The better way to know if your plants are ready is to get a magnifier and look at the trichomes ratio to make an harvest based on the kind of effect you want ( high = clear and milky trichs , stone = milky and amber trichs). I hope it will help you :grin::+1:

Hi @Bronhitis! Healthy leaves, loads of bud-sites, beautiful foliage coloration, you're doing great! Buds will fatten up during their 2 last weeks, most of the hairs/pistils will turn red/brown and start to curl. I think you still have 2 to 4 weeks to go, so I would recommend to give her at least 1 other meal with P+K, then prepare for the flush (10~12 days). Take a daily closeup look at the trichomes, and start to flush when at least half of the trichomes have turned from transparent/thin to milky/fat. Stop the flush when most of the trichomes are milky, and a few amber ones have appeared. Then enjoy your harvest :sunglasses: Hope this will help, keep us up-to-date and happy growing :facepunch:
