Well I fucked up, and it was because I got a little too trigger happy and misunderstood information that was presented to me on the interwebs.

I started flushing my plant (watering with only tap water, no nutrients) a few weeks ago because I believed my plant to be close to harvest (novice mistake of course) and from what I had read at the time, once you begin flushing your plants, the buds where supposed to explode. However, that has turn out to NOT be the case, rather my buds have stopped producing density AND crystals! Very disappointing.

I went to the Hydro shop yesterday to explain my situation to the guy working at the counter and he said it probably wasn't a good to add more nutrients at this point, being this far into flowering (Week 8).

Here are some pictures of the plant:













Here are some pictures of a few branches I harvested and dried for 3 days, definitely not ready, not swollen up enough yet:




As you can see, my girl outgrew her light:


So what should I do?

Keep growing her out without using nuts? Use some nutes and keep growing her out for longer then 2 more weeks? or just cut my loses and harvest now?

What strain is it? It looks like it could go another 3 weeks easy. And on that last pic, I would definitely string that bitch on the left over to right under the light.

Its "Skywalker OG", but I put it in quotes because the genetics are questionable. I got it from a bad of weed I got at the dispensary ( some dank that accidently got pollinated, and probably by a hermie ), but the weed I got it out of was labed Skywalker OG and its pretty similar to other cuts of Skywalker OG that I have gotten from other dispensaries.

The flowering time for Skywalker OG is supposted to be around 8 - 9 week (in week 8 right now). Indica.

Yeah the hairs are still significantly white, I don't think its quite ready yet. Im just not sure if I should feed it more nutrients or not. The leaves are still pretty green so I assume it still has quite a bit of nutrients it hasn't completely metabolized yet.

I would put it back on a feeding schedule, then flush when it's time again.

It looks like it's going to be another Gravity Bong type day...

How many more waterings with nuts do you think I should do?

My lease is coming up in 3 months and I want to do another grow so the more I keep this plant going the more I'm cutting into that grow as well. However, I'm planning on doing clones next time and only vegging them for a week or two.

If im going to feed it more nutrient I think I might want to add another nutrient, Beastie Bloomz. Would this be a good idea?

That depends on when you want to harvest, and when they are ready to harvest. 
The pistils are still quite white by the looks of them and the flowers themselves have a lot of fattening up to do. 
You should be keeping and eye on the color of your trichs.  Most people Wait till there Mostly cloudy - 50% or more amber before they harvest.  I would say give it at least 2 more weeks, and maybe a third.  Just keep an eye on it.

Alright will do. I'll just feed her water because I dont want to drag it out any further then 2 more weeks and she has alot of green still left in her leaves.

My microscope is coming in the mail tomorrow so i'll get on inspecting those trichs.
