    all but the newest richs are cloudy, not clear, but none have gone past solid white yet to amber.

    Is that from seed or clone? If it's a clone do you know which cut it is? If from seed do you know which breeder? That may help with your answer. I think most chems go for around 9-11 weeks so you should be a week or two away. Looking nice , congrats on that!

    What light schedule are you running? if 12/12, you may want to bump it to 11.5/12.5 or 11/13

    I have read several reports on Chem Dog sometimes going past 12 weeks. The last grow I did I grew a monster CD indoors DWC under mixed lighting totaling about 900 watts. She was still making white hairs and I never saw an amber trike.. with this pheno type you need to really look at the trikes with a loupe. The thing you look for is the stem of the trikes start to curl or lean over rather than being firm an erect. I harvested mine close to 13 weeks of flower, she was nearly 7 ft. tall and yard long colas. GOT NEARLY 12 OZ DRY FROM 1 PLANT.
    The weed is incredible, I've had several veteran smokers get sick after a small doobie between 3 or 4. It's gotten me very dizzy more than once and that's not easy to do. The only other weed to hit me nearly that hard would be some very good White Rhino and also some AK47.

    So, don't look for amber trikes and red hairs replacing white hairs on the Chem Dog because you'll likely not find what you're looking for. The secret is in the trike stems starting to get a curve to it rather than sticking straight out. Sounds crazy but I've experienced it of my seeded Chem Dog as well as a few clones from her.

    I took mine to 74 days. It will keep popping white hairs and looks premature. I had the 4 cut.

    I did a couple runs of GreenHouses CD. The first one I only waited 63 days while thew second I went 80 days. The 80 days was for sure the way to go. I can't see how this strain can finish in ~60days.

    Doing a chemdog run now if anyone has any journals up they wanna recommend. Mine are sitting close to two feet and I feel like I should flower soon due to flowering stretch. Anyone used Hulk additive during flowering to cut vertical growth?

    I just ran a chem dominant mixed chem/indica hybrid.

    At 70 days it was definitely NOT mature, so I cut lighting to 11/13.

    At 82 days it still had a lot of young-looking pistils, but there was a touch of amber on the older ones, and I decided it was probably done enough for an "early" harvest. So that was just shy of 12 weeks, and it probably could have gone another 3-7 days, no sweat.

    Here's a look a week before I chopped:

    And here's the "money" shot:

    Pictures aren't appearing Jogro. How much flowering stretch did you have Jogro? No one else wants to answer any of my questions :/

    They take 10-11 weeks. It will never look done and keep shooting white pistils.
