14 weeks since 12/12 and still waiting?
It has been 14 weeks since I switched my girls into flowering. They had preflowers already. They were vegged and flowered under a 430 Son Argo HPS. They have about 25% red hairs. Most of the trichomes are clear and cloudy. Is there any reason why these could be going this long. Also is there any ways in making the bud mature faster. The buds are huge and I still see lots of new growth. Hairs are not receeding. I have no recent pics within the last 3-4 weeks but these pictures are from about a month ago.
Hmmm what is the strain?? this could possibly be your 'problem'... buds do look very nice tho.
Are you disturbing the dark period in any way?

I was told to flush them around 10 weeks and I did. One of them was ready to harvest but I knew that I had flushed too early soo I fed them again with more nutes. When I flushed them it seem growth stopped on a couple of them. Since I fed them nutes again about 3 weeks ago I have seen lots of new growth. I gave them another dose of nutes about a week ago. I using 3 part GH Flora series with floralicious plus and Liquid Koolbloom on the side. I was thinking of giving them some calmag because there is a lot of dead leaves even on some new growth and thought maybe some more magnesium might help. I will maybe get a couple pictures tonight. On two of them they are branching out at the top for some reason forming new colas. This is my first grow and I just want these 3 to be done so I can put some more in there.

yea they are very nice... sativas finish off slow. but hey sativa buds are nearly always worth the wait. When those pistils get all nice n colored i would chop. very good job.
This could be why. My flowering room isnt as closed off as I could have it. There is an opening at the bottom of my plastic wall I put together closed off by velcro. But I never thought it was that big of deal since there is only a couple of t5s on the other side of the plastic and the light is not facing the plastic door.

seal that puppy up ....you need to have your room as dark as possible... dark as a dark night outside with little or no moon light.... if you can see the plants at all its way to much light..
.if you need light to work use a cheap green bulb from home depot in a shop light ...
most strains flower in 8 - 10 weeks ... some a s early as six some as late as twelve weeks but at 14 weeks you should be way finished ....seal up that light leak... give it a week or so and chop em..
OR on the other crop may have already been affected beyond repair maybe you wanna harvest ,cut your loses and move this one out of the way for the next one.. and seal up that light leak..
from the looks of your pics you will have some decent smoke but if you keep light stressing the plants they are bound to freak out and morph on ya...and pollinate the whole house .
