yea i read that in FAQ. it's about 5-6 weeks into flowering. aobut 2% of the hairs are red and the trichs are clear. does this plant look like it could take a few extra weeks, like 4 or 5, to reach it's potential? i mean, what's ur prognoses?
found the case and bag my seeds came in w/ the order form. here's the strain

Veg: Well this plant was a big fuzz with a lot of problems. Under the veg. period there were a lot of problems with MG, N etc. deficiency. While vegging this plant I discovered that the pH should be low (for organic soil) by low I mean 5.5 to 6 (more like hydro) - when this pH was hit, the plant grew well and after 35 day it was ready to set to flower.
Flower: Here we have something explosive! After 3 days of 12/12 (YES it's true!) the first sign of resin showed on my plant and I started counting days of flower. The flowering period did go well, and there was no special 'blooming-booms' as the flowers developed nice all the way. After 7.25 week (not 8 as Nirvana recommend) the plant is ripe and ready to harvest, this was done without any trimming - as I believe the best drying results is with a full leaf matter.
Taste, smell and potential, effect: The taste is nothing to write about (the plant it not cured yet!!); there was only a slight taste of something sweet, I think it is good, not bad. For smell, this plant is pretty low odor - sometimes there was a small whiff of plum. When it comes to potential and effect - the plant took me by surprise as I have figured that with no taste and 'thought hurt' the plant must have been weak (I did see all the trichomes, but...) - the surprise was that after 5 minutes I could notice a small visual disorder and a feeling of hot water running trough my body, 5 minutes after that my mind started to shine like a summers day – stress from work left me, and my mouth got active. Overall effect – this plant is a true worry-remover; Or as my wife said “This strain brings out the subconscious hippie…”
Final rating: This plants carries some trouble, but if u have the time, it's worth it
Garden Information for this report
Bloom Wattage Used: 260w to 400wAverage Plant Height: 80Plants per Sq. Foot: 9.00Average Yield per Plant: 6.63Pruning or Plant Style: BushFertilization Method: Organically fed
Stealth cabin 160 Cm tall and a footprint that is 56X56 with 400 Watt Son-T GrowLux for light, due to bad ventilation (One pulling top mounted) the temperature rises to 35C, anyway I grow some good smoke there. I have gone from Chemical fertilizing to pure ecology organic systems (Only using the HPS is non-eco), actually I can see, and taste, it on the plants as they look and smell more healthy. For earth I use a 50/50 mix of worm castings lighten up with Leca (Made about 5 kilometers from where I live)The mix is enriched with a mix of chicken and sea-bird manure (Animix) and blended ascophyllum nodosum seaweed (Kelp) harvested from the local beach. As an addendum I use tea from the same seaweed every 3 day when plants are young, ecology fertilizer (Consist of micro-organisms to break down enrichment and humus to make soil more light) every week. When it’s time to flower, I brew tea from bone-powder (Phosphor enrichment) make from ecology cattle. Besides my cabin I’m growing outside as well (In the summer)

that's awesome LURP, thanks a lot. i'm totally curing these buds, i bought my jars yesterday. i grew this plant organic too, so who the hell knows what that'll mean.

does molasses really work?
I hear it does a tablespoon( the big one) per gallon, mix in a teaspoon of Miracal grow tomato food and you should be set.
Do you have a good magnifier? You will need a hand held 60x-100x Microscope, this will cost you around 10-15 bucks. Then you will really see what is going on. When you start your flush will be dependent on how ripe you want your buds to be. The over all thought is that more amber your tricombs are, the more the body high. So if you want a more "up" high, then start your flush when about 10% of the tricombs are amber and the rest cloudy. If you are looking for more yield, and don't mind the couch lock high, then wait until about 50% are nice and amber..I start the flush with a product called Flora Kleen by GH. I let that run for two days with fresh water and the recomended dose, then I refill the tank with fresh water and go for another 5 days, or until the plants start loosing most of there dark green color..Hope this helps
i'll use nutes for 1 moer week, water for 2 weeks, then maybe water for another week and then it's the chop.
shuold i just hang the whole plant upside down in front of a box fan to dry? it's all in a very dark closet and it's well ventilated. any advice or links would be much appreciated.
