Look kinda small to be ready.  How many weeks in are you?  Are the trichomes turning?

And dude, I've already tried the 2 days of no light.  It doesn't do anything, really a waste of time.

It's a very small plant in a 5 inch pot. It's been outdoors on around 12/12 since germination so I can't say, but its been about 5 & 1/2 weeks since I first saw the pistils come out... so 6 & 1/2 weeks in? what do you mean by turning?

Really? I read it on the cervantes guide but it doesn't make sense why it should work anyway, how dafuck do 48 hours of darkness happen in nature. Thanks man!

It's not about it happening in nature.  The theory is you stress it out so it will produce more trichomes.  A lot of literature mentions it.  The overgrow book did, cervantes did as well.  A lot of people believe that it works.  But through all the experiments I've tried it hasnt done shit.


You need to get a magnifying class and look at the trichomes.  The heads of them will turn amber when it's getting close to harvest time.  You want to see 30-40% amber colored.

Dinafem Seeds White Widow  is the most potent cannabis on Earth and is named for the abundance of trichomes, giving the plant a whitish tint. It is also one of the more powerful strains of marijuana (alongside AK-47 and Afghan Kush) with a very high 20%-25% THC content.
White Widow feminized seeds are (60%/40%) indica/sativa cross-strain and is best suited to indoor cannabis cultivation.  Cannabis seeds grow as high as 35-80 cm with the yield up to 450 gr per m2. It's suggested to flower (12 hour light) this marijuana variety for 8 weeks, but 10 weeks will really give you the crystals you are after. Try to turn the lights off altogether the final 2 weeks of the flowering cycle- or at least down to 8 hours. This keeps the flowers from re-growth and stresses the plant into giving up its last drop of goodness as crystal to protect the flower! The buds have so much THC on them that it is hard to see them at all.




from here http://www.cannabis-seeds-bank.co.uk/dinafem-seeds-white-widow/prod_57.html

2 weeks.. :eyeball::eyeball:

Not that I do this nor do I even have an opinion about it, I just remember reading about the dark period at the end of flowering being recommended still. :hippie:

Again, it doesn't do anything.  It's not going to reveg under 12/12, this just sounds like a lot of hyperbole from the seeds company.  I mean for fucks sake they're saying

"The buds have so much THC on them that it is hard to see them at all." 


Come on, they could at least say trichomes.  It's not "covered in THC".

Yeah, I've done the 48 hour darkness thing too. Didn't really see any difference at all.

I mean, if you want to try it, by all means, go for it...but I feel like if you want a final growth stretch or something, letting it go 2 more days under the lights is going to do a hell of a lot more for it than 2 days in the dark!  :2cents:

I have heard that stress before harvest can produce a sudden increase in trichs or something similar, but I haven't ever really seen anything to back it up so its all just hearsay to me until someone provides some solid evidence.


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

My sentiments exactly! thanks guys! What I will do is give it one hour more hour of dark (the sun sets at about 6 and it goes into the darkness box at 7, so just put it in at 6 from now on, no light time lost anyway) or will that increase chances of herminess?

If you're chopping her down soon anyway, theres not much need to worry about it hermieing up. If something you do at this point causes male flowers just cut it down :tongue2:

This has got to be ready now !!!!!!!! [Re: RasJeph]
    #613364 - 03/19/12 05:48 PM (4 years, 8 months ago)

This has got to be ready! I see plenty of amber trichs! no?

If and when I harvest would it be best to harvest the top bit and leave the rest for a few more days? I want absolute peak THC but I don't know if being such a small plant changes anything? Thanks!!!

what do you mean by turning? turning amber? and can't you see the little amber trichs on the pics, or is there a need for more of a close up to determine something? what is one supposed to look at? I might be able to get one by tomorrow, thanks

As I looked at it again I can see that you have about 1 in 40-50 that are amber.  Not time to harvest yet buddy.

The 7th picture down in that post looks pretty good to go to me. But oddly enough, the others don't so much. Maybe its a trick of the lighting?

Agreed, I think it's because that's the top of the plant, maybe the rest is not quite ready... that's why I'm asking about harvest one bit first and then the rest?

Don't worry about that.  I can see the trichs.  Not ready.

i think what the dark time does is allows the trichomes to get longer because of no heat causing them to dry up. im sure everyone has noticed that trichs on lower popcorn buds seem WAY frostier even some breeders take pics of those little buds caue there so much more sugary. i would be just lowering light intensity for a week or so would give a bit of a result.  ??? i dunno just my thought on the subject, but kinda makes sense.

I dunno about that.  My lower buds aren't frostier than the big top buds.

Neither are mine.
This jsut doesn't make much since to me, last I checked planted needed light to do their thing, it's their primary energy source.
