Definitely close but I see a lot of clear still
Hey fellas would appreciate some knowledge as to how much longer you think my girl might have till shes ready?
3 weeks, a guess, seek other opinions
3 weeks at least wait till all triches are white and bulbous few amber but no glass get me
cool thx for the replies guys
How far out?
THIS IS SO HELPFUL THANKS -SORRY MY CAPS IS STUCK ON
U say u cure until u get the moisture that u desire. I didn't know that moisture levels were a preference. I thought that there's a perfect dryness to shoot for for the best burn, taste, and mold prevention? What would some benefits be for a "gooey" cure as opposed to a crispy one? Thanks.
I hang dry now. I pull all the fan leaves then hang dry it just until the stems snap. Then I trim all the bud leaves and jar it up.
Gooey bud is good for sticking on your nose. We used to judge how good our bud was by seeing if it would stick to the tip of our nose. If it stuck it was the bomb.
this was flipped on 9-6 and I was certain that it was going to take several more weeks but I clipped a sugar leaf and can see some cloudy trichs, no amber, mostly cloudy actually. Most of the pistils seem to be turning brown to me. It seems to have only been a touch over five weeks and I am seeing signs that it is close. It is an ak48 from nirvana seeds. I think today is 37 days technically from day of flip.
I have been trying and trying and practicing and practicing and just can't get good close ups even though I got a badass camera and some macro lens adapters.
I can see a lot of white hairs in this pic I didn't see in person. I was seeing mostly brown.
cloudy is a stage, you want cracked cloudy and evidence of tricomes bursting. it's verry subtle but 5 weeks is too short. eight weeks is a short bloom. as for white hairs, most should be dark but some things can darken hairs arlyand at 5 weeks white hairs show new bud mass forming. some strains stop but ome keep forming new growth which is why they say mostly instead of all dark or all cracked cloudy
your buds are going to get bigger.
I can't remember if this is the main top cola bud or not right now, and I hope it does fill out a lot more.
I will have to go back and re-read the first page or few of this thread but I recall that one of the biggest signs of being finished was mostly cloudy trichs with some amber, as few clear as possible and some amber, giving the bud a tint that can be seen with the naked eye. Maybe it wasn't this thread but another on how to tell when to harvest without a loupe or scoping the trichs but just looking at the general appearance with the naked eye.
In the description for the strain it says it is supposed to be a 48 day finish, hence the name. Which now does seem short when thinking about it. That is why I was thinking it may be getting near. That and the hairs being mostly brown and the trichs being almost all cloudy. I will keep an eye on the white pistils and see if they keep appearing fresh. I was also comparing it to another plant that is much further along (different strain, but) that has very very few brown hairs yet and clear trichs.
The one that is further along I have already harvested one crop of previously and I am sure it was too soon, however, I had fought off root rot and high temps and it was dying whether I harvested it or not. It didn't do well and now seems to be a long finisher, regardless I am cycling it out of rotation.
I was completey surprised to see the younger plant looking so much more closer to finish than the older one as far as hairs and trichs are concerned anyway.
I am going to have to reread this thread again and figure this out I guess, seems this new info conflicts with what I thought I learned from this thread. I also thought that you wanted no burst trichs, that at the first sign of trichs bursting you had already waited too long and would have mostly amber trichs which was also undesirable to most people?
Dude are you ok? Talking about the fire. Haven't seen a post in a couple.
It missed me by 2 blocks. We evacuated at 3:30am Monday morning. I could see flames over the tops of the houses across the street. I thought for sure we lost it. Somehow the fire dept got in and stopped it before it crossed Piner. If it would have jumped Piner I would have been done for.
You all safe where you are?
Yes, super safe i think.
yea man 2 weeks more at least. i would guess more but if it's 49 days that's 7 weeks up in two weeks.
according to the strain description, 11 more days from that pic but that seems unrealistic to me. Or like it won't be very big at all unless it really really packs it on in a few days. I expected it to take a lot longer regardless of what the breeder says.
The confusing part to me is that the hairs are brown and the trichs are cloudy and the buds are so skimpy looking yet. Even if it is a 48 day strain at 38 days currently.
My wife and I stood in the parking lot of Lucky and watched this condo burn. There was fire all the way up the side of the hill. About 100 people in the parking lot chillin' and taking pics.
Crazy, yea thats where the shit went down. Still cant believe it.
