How close?
    #178649 - 01/10/09 02:42 PM (7 years, 10 months ago)

I posted this in Marijuana Pictures, but it might get more attention/comments in here.
So here are some cool ass pictures I took last night of my nieces.  Uncle moikey love them =)

There are 2 plants, one looks more indica than the other. Whatever, ill let you decide. The smaller one was started a little later than the bigger one, the bigger one is under a 400w HPS and the little guy has 2-150w CFL's.  Organic soil with a hint of bone meal.

This is a nice specimen of the smaller plants cola's..Not sure what strain.


And another!


Heres the fat main cola of the bigger plant

Kiefy goodness down below


Another cola off the big girl.


SOOPER DANK


Heres the whole big girl...lotsa goodness


And the smaller one:


He tried a new technique of trimming called bigbird or something where you trim the leave and leave just one leaflet still. Increased the light on the lower buds a LOT and it just blew up.

STRAIGHT WHITE


Any ideas of when they might be done? I'd say maybe 2-3 more weeks? We started flowering them around Thanksgiving.

The only proper way to harvest is to check the trichome color with a strong magnifying glass, a jewelers loop, or a pocket microscope (10$ at radioshack). Harvest when the trichomes are cloudy for a heady high or amber for a stony, body high.

"Prohibition will work great injury to the cause of temperance. It is a species of intemperance within itself, for it goes beyond the bounds of reason in that it attempts to control a man's appetite by legislation, and makes a crime out of things that are not crimes. A Prohibition law strikes a blow at the very principles upon which our government was founded." - Abraham Lincoln

but i gotta reccomend never letting them go amber.
dont you love it when your herb sparkles as opposed to a white/yellow dust all over it? and a stimulaing buzz rather than eat the house and crash?
looks great! btw.

So, depending on the color of the trichomes, you get sativa/indica effects?

So if I had a 75/25 or whatever indica to sativa plant, and let the trichs get mostly cloudy would it just be a super heavy couchlock?

In simple terms

Transparent trichomes = immature

Cloudy = Max percentage of THC

Amber= More of the THC has oxidized to CBDs = more of a body high.

It's up to you what proportion you choose, but don't trust any other method for determining ripeness. All that, when the hairs turn brown, etc is not reliable.
