    I clipped a piece of one of the colas to get a better pic with the scope I have.

    I wouldn't go much beyond another week. Trichs are harder to read than we like to admit.

    Those plants are within the acceptable range in my very humble opinion.

    That’s all personal preference, you will be lucky if you get it bang on perfect for what you want yourself. I’m afraid it’s a time consuming process and you have to learn when’s right for you from your own experience I don’t think there’s a quick way to get it perfect first time. Don’t overthink it though it’s no way near as important as your next step drying and curing getting the right temperature and humidity to ensure you don’t get mould, when to box it up when it’s dry but not too dry that’s when I really get on edge! Start your research now and get prepared. All them months of care can be ruined in a couple days of bad drying practise

    For sure read his post carefully,
    Its not just mold, its about temp, humidity and time.
    I know you read it im just restating it to scare ya. Lol

    Honestly dry and cure are simple concepts but controling the environment can be a bitch.

    Study now for sure

    Yes. You’re less worried about keeping the root zone in check at every second in hard medium. I strongly recommend rolling with Roots Organics in soilless. In organics, you’re more buffered and less likely to overfeed. You also don’t have to worry about pH as much, and you feed once a week, water halfway between feedings. That simple.

    In organics, you feed the aerobic beneficial bacteria and microbes in the soil, they eat the organic matter, and then they shit out what the plant can take up without having to worry much about pH.

    Where I am today the temperature outside at 10 am was about 2 degrees. 5 hours later it was about 10 degrees. So if I had my dry area set up perfect at 10 am 5 hours later it would be way out sucking in air 8 degrees warmer crisping up my girls hanging out in there. Fan controllers can help with this but otherwise it’s just keeping an eye on it quite regularly

    Yep, i have to check in a few times a day and night.
    More exhaust, less heat, more humidity etc..

    one more question for you guys. my rh is 25% in my house right now with the furnace. can I put a humidifier in my 4x4 tent? or will that create mold? there is a carbon filter running in there, and two eight inch fans going in there now with the plant.

    As long as you have adequate ventilation you should be fine.
    The one i use don't blow a steam cloud
    Just fan forced wet air

    You don’t need a humidifier.

    ok. I have a six inch vortex fan and filter blowing out and a four inch vortex fan blowing in. should I run the two 8 inch fans in there also during the dry? or just the ventilation fans? also you guys are awesome on this forum helping out new growers such as myself thanks to all again for the great info.
