hey another ready or not question
    #538628 - 03/21/11 06:53 AM (5 years, 8 months ago)

hey all im really close to harvesting now and since its my first time growing i wanted some experience fellas to take a look at my buds:laugh:

this is my plant, i think its mostly indica- unknown strain.


tomorrow will be the the end of week 8 since i switch to 12/12 flowering mode.


I took it outside to the sun for better pics


it looks quite ready to my inexperienced eyes. i tried to check on trichomes with a little pocket microscope and they all looked quite clear to me, though i didnt get to have a very clear and stable look at it.


so what do you say ? how are my buds looking? should i wait a few more days?

They are getting close, you still have a few white hairs in there so its still got another few weeks to go at the least.

You wouldn't happen to be an Aussie would you?

The Calyx's will be drawn back into the plant and swell up in the last few weeks of flowering, but its generally better to go by the color of the trichromes. Try to harvest when around 50% of the trichromes are amber and the other half are milky, you will need around 40x (I think) magnification to see them up close and personal, something like a jewelers loupe will do the trick.

I asked if you were aussie because our outdoor season is coming to a close as well :lol:

Well it might not be anymore than 2 or so weeks to go, but yea wait till somebody with more experience posts before you do anything. If you're already flushing with straight water then you might as well stay with it, or maybe sneak in a few feedings in the next week but I wouldn't do it for much longer than that.

she really close at being done, i usualy judge by by 60% pistils as well, when i think there ready i always wait another week to harvest from that point..last week or two of harvest is when you really pack on the weight and the kick your ass weed....just let it go another week man...
or do what i usualy do harvest one, so ull have smoke then harvest the others in a week, and save one for 2weeks....have a pepsi challenge when your done figure out what kind of smoke you like better then next year you will know precisly when too harvest too your taste, trial and error best way too learn, gotta figure out how too do it yourself and not what everybody else thinks:rasta:good luck

That last week is the hardest haha. :tongue2:

I've got one looking just like yours. Can't fucking waaaaaaaait for this shit :lol:

But yeah, I'd let it go another week. Trichs will tell you for sure, but if you can stand it, hold out.

Of course it's happening inside your head.
Why should that mean it isn't real?

i flushed it 2 weeks ago and since then each watering was kind a like a flush so i guess there are almost no nutes in the soil. i know that u dont feed in the last week before harvest, but since the growing would be longer than i expected wouldn't the plant suffer from lack of nutes?

:thumbup:

Some use a 5% nutrient mix when flushing instead of just plain water. so that is an option.

ok so im giving it 7-10 more days. the thing is that i need my flowering space for 3 new plants more than a feet tall and ready to flower.
do you think its a good idea to move the plant outside for the last week or so and let her finish her things? i got nice weather now in the higher 70's plenty of sun and daytime and night time are even.
is it ok moving the plant outside at this late stage of her life although she is not use to it?
