how do i tell when my plants are done flowering
ok so i think i read when those little white things are mostly orange mine are about half orange and half white, are they done yet?
and how do i dry the plants..and for how long?
Probably not even close. That method doesn't work at all. You base your flowers maturity/readiness on the white crystals you should be seeing on your buds and upper leaves. It should be quite pronounced.
You need to read about trichs in the faq's.
There are no stupid questions . . . some are just easier to answer.
Thats the best way to research....

It's explained in the grow faq, top left...
Get a microscope or good magnifying glass and look at the trichomes. When your bud has reached it's maximum potency the trichomes will take on a partial amber color. when they are about 50/50 clear/amber they have reached their peak. Any longer and they will start to degrade, any sooner they're not ready. 80 percent of trichome production occurs in the last two weeks of flowering so if you pick early you'll really lose out. When in doubt wait a week.
