Rwein93 started grow question 2 years ago
Hi guys! I arrived at the harvest according to the specs of the seed, but my plants still have most of the white pistils. Can you tell me when to start the flush?
Thanks for your time! and happy growing !!!

Hey Rwein I harvested one of these a couple months ago and it took 15 weeks. It vegged a little longer than yours so yours wont take that long. This strain seems to average about 12 weeks. As far as when to flush the only reliable way is to monitor your trichomes with a 30x or better 60x magnifying glass. You want to harvest with the highest percentage of cloudy milky trichomes as possible. Clear trichs=not ready. cloudy=reaching maximum thc level. amber= too late your thc is converting to cbd and other less desirable compounds. Since it looks like you are using organic nutrients I wouldnt focus as much on the length of your flush. I start flushing when I get about 10% amber and they are usually good for me in about a week. You will get different effects depending on when you harvest. A early harvest with several clear trichs will give you more of an entergetic high where a late harvest with a lot of amber will give you more of a sedative couchlock effect. It is really something you have to experiment with to see what you like. You can always cut an early bud and let the rest go so you have something to compare to. Hope that answers your question as far as when to flush... Now as far as that browning bud I dont want to scare you but it could possibly be the beginning of bud rot. I would cut the bud off and get it out asap just to be safe. Your humidity is high for this late in flower and buds that fat. I would try to get your humidity down around 30% and more air circulation if possible. Looks like you have done a great job on them and soon will have a nice harvest!
