    Hey guys I have a dilema that Is bothering me. I've been growing these ho's for a lil bit 2 months or so. When they were younger few weeks before flowering inwas sexing them and it was for like 2 weeks maybe under 12/12 but then I sexed em and had 24hrs for about 2-3 weeks. So Now these ladies have been flowering for about 4 weeks straight 12/12 no light leaks great temps 400w hps etc. One of them seemed to take off and is plumped up swelling I guess started early pistils starting to amber. Trichomes aleady cloudy maybe I saw very very few amber trichomes like more of the trichomes stem hope i'm giving you a nice visual so far Some leaves yellowed out so I was getting worried now I'm like my flowering time is all F'd up not sure what to do. I was looking to use some overdrive or big up powder(humboldt) but idk if I can if there's not gonna be enough time. Maybe my ph was very low I gave it a few reads with a ph stick (growing in soil) a ph test run off water it seemed super low like 5.0 or lower who knows with these colors. Stick read 7 but I think it's broken. So anway I gave it a good flush And even uses some final flush to make sure i get all the doody buildup out I'm just really kind of dissapoiNted because they def could get fatter and denser then they look. They don't seem heavy either. Am I just freaking out this isn't my first grow maybe like 5 or some Isht but I really never was satisfied with the end product taste etc so I wanna be sure the buds will burn taste well with white ash. Better to have decent size buds that taste great then to have big ginormous buds that taste and smoke horrible should I do? If you want pics I'll post up. Sorry if I was talking all over the place. I'm deseperate for info an I respect all your knowledge that I've read around here thanks so much. Oh and if u didn't know I'm growing some strain of sour diesel my favorite ever so smelly good. Supposly it a long almost 75 days 10 weeker about. So that's why I'm bugging out about it


    ~~~ Edit~~~

    I added pictures.. I dont know if you could really tell in the pictures what i mean.. they always look nicer in pictures i realized. especially with the flash reflecting off.. Anyway lemme know what u think Thanks again for all yor help in advance

    your plants look fine to me...its normal for the leaves to start to yellow as the plant uses less nitrogen...you are only week five the buds will fatten up the most in the last two weeks of flowering,,,be patient :^)

    Ok cool I thought so but I can't sleep at night thinking it was finishing earlier then expected. I'm trying to let it go as long as possible within reason so it doesn't look like anything is finishing to early on that specific. I will post up more pics of other ones to compare and let u decide what u think. Thanks for the fast reply dude much apprciated

    Yeah so from what u can see. U think they are on time i wanted to go like 10 weeks If I can just makkn sure. So j
    I can still feed them accordingly After the mid flowering flush I'm gonna maybe just give em just molasses for a few days to see how they do. Before I start overdrive for a week or 2. What r ur opinions on that. Thanx again

    Yeah, you still have at least a month left before harvest. Post some new pics in about three weeks and we'll be able to give you an idea of when to start flushing.

    Absolutely. Even the fastest strains take 8 week to flower.

    I just finished week five of flowering on my grow (check the link in my signature) and I still have 4-5 weeks left myself.

    You are one lucky man! Sour diesel has always been my favorite strain (and I've only been able to get it three times).

    Your plants are looking perfect to me. If you really haven't been satisfied with the smell and/or taste, you might want to try a different curing method.

    But once again, nice plants man!

    Thank you thank you. Oh I know min 8 weeks and sd like 10 even 12 weeks. But for any reason can they finish early which I don't want at all I wanna go at least 9 weeks or more if I can. I'm just in a panic looking at these trichomes making me super nervous I can't sleep at night for real I have another sour looking on track not even swolen yet so that's why I'm goi g nuts I mean if this one DEF 100 % has more time. Even though trichomes are so
    amber. As u say it doesn't matter. So u think I should still feed them that's also a worry. Cuz if they do finish early and I didn't get a chance to flush. Is also a issue

    So it's been a few days now and i don't really see any progess in growth at all I mean do plants really stop growing more bud or do they just stop completely and just ripen in pistil color etc.. I'll show u some more pics and ull see

    Yeah sick plants bro. The second pick looks similar to mine. They are sd. They stink like it and came from sd. Did ur trichomes turn amber and then regenerated with more clear to cloudy ones. U understand what I mean? That's wut my concerns r. U get what I mean? So urs started ff super quick ad took off fast and then chilled out for a while and started to dense up a lil later on is that what u r saying

    am I just taking this amber trichome crap way to serious? Or is it really just nogood
