What stage are these buds at?
    #827827 - 08/09/17 01:20 PM (11 months, 4 days ago)

First time grower. So not sure what to expect as far as these buds go. But these are about 4.5 months old with about a month of flowering 12/12.

How much longer until these buds are fully mature?
They dont even look like buds right now just white hairs.
Strain is mataro blue.

I'm not a real experienced grower but I've got a few indoor grows under my belt.  Hard to say for sure but id say you have at least another 4 weeks before they're mature enough for harvest.  Could even be another 8 weeks or more if its a sativa dominant strain.

Yep, 8 to 12+ weeks total flower time depending on genetics. You can pick up a cheap Jeweller's loupe or microscope and keep track of the trichomes once you get closer to 8 weeks flower time.

With Indica strains, a combination of 50% clear/milky heads and 50% amber heads is about the optimal time to harvest. With sativas, I've heard that you want something more like 70% clear/cloudy and 30% amber, but I've never grown any long-flowering sativas so I can't really attest to that.

Since mataro blue is an indica with a rated flower period of 8.5 weeks, you should probably wait another 4 weeks, then start checking your trichomes for that 50/50 color ratio.

Hope this helps :pipesmoke:
