    well i know this is a noobie question but im curious about how long after you begin to flower can i expect to see buds :) i know i should just be patient and wait and see but i thought maybe some of you that know could let a noobie know lol. they are mostly indica strain i think and are 1 week and a day into flowering now... how much longer friends?? bongsmilie

    That is a hard question for anyone to answer. Too many factors involved. You have the strain of the plant. The environment you are providing for the plant..are you having ideal conditions for temperature, humidity, pH, lighting, nutrients, water, ventilation, co2 enrichment, etc. I would suggest to exercise patience and they will show bud points when they are meant to show. Best of luck.

    In a week you should see signs of pre-flower. (depending on strain) By two weeks you should start to see a cola forming from the top, and at every node there should be a lot of pistols, the pistols, will become buds, as they grow closer together, and fatten up. You shouldn't see bud till it's a month in, and they wont be ready for harvest for another 2-4 weeks. (depending on strain)

    After 3 weeks flowering mine SUDDENLY started to look like mini buds after looking like, well...the top of a plant lol:mrgreen:

    Goddamn people, they aren't pistols, pistols are used to shoot bullets, they are called PISTILS. No fuckin O in the word.

    Rant off.

    usually 2 weeks and you start to see flowering take off along with a big growth spurt.

    The pistil is the white hair. The calyx is the pointy lookin thing that the hairs come out of. If you have a cluster of balls with no hairs and they start to hang down you have male.

    White hairs= female, balls = males and if you got both well... then you got a hermi.

    The good news is that males generally show sex first. So in this case no news is good news and there is a good chance you got a girl.

    for someone with a name like nodrama, you such are trying to stir some up. this isnt a thesis.

    pistils and hairs are the same thing. they eventually turn red, brown, etc and recede back in to the green calyx.

    more then likely if there are no balls then its fem.
    and yes all females will eventually have the pistils everywhere... wich are the famous white hairs we all know of :eyesmoke:

    How big is your plant and what light are you using?
