Amber tricomes... puzzled
    #629570 - 06/27/12 02:35 PM (4 years, 5 months ago)

what makes them turn amber? 
like is it the flushing/lack of nutes that cause the change of color or is it a time thing where the flowering time is 8 weeks and the tricomes turn then when its ready or just the lack of nutes cause them to change?  just wondering cus Im 10 days away from the recommended harvest time and my tricomes are all over the place w/some being clear, some milky and very few ambers. :shrug:

just wondering if ANYBODY knows this answer.. :thanx:

It's the plant aging.  Just like our skin looses elasticity, and our muscles grow weaker the older we get.  Trichomes age and start oxidizing.

:thanx:

:bow2:

so if they give a flowering time of 8 weeks the tricomes will change no matter what or is it because we starve them of nutes in the last 2 weeks and in that last push for survival they change. :confused2:

youve given me the best answer all day and I asked on a few sites.

Im not struggling w/anything Im just scientifically curious :drugnerd:

oxidation = bad/good with MJ?

w/shrooms its bad and thats what Im used to. :smirk:

think of it like old leaves getting brown and falling off. it doesnt really mean its deprived, it just means its reaching the end of its life and it no longer needs to produce its protecting chemicals(remember thats what thc is, protection from bugs)  It is however part genetic, you get some pure sativas for whatever reason they really dont like to turn amber. perhaps because of there equatorial origin they stay fresher and stickier longer because there lives tend to be alot longer and need extra protection from bugs and or molds. as we know some cannabanoids and terpenes in the trichs have antmicrobial/bacterial action.

good luck.

fyi 8 weeks is standard but it can take less or more time depending on genetics

on a long enough timeline the survival rate for everyone drops to zero-tyler durden
