Pistols all turning brown but trichs are not

    How long should it take from the time all pistols turn amber until the trich's start to turn? Is it normal for this to happen? Like all the pistols are amber now with no white hairs left but trich's have not begun to change yet.

    It all depends on the strain. Also, spraying your bus can cause the hairs to turn as will some additives. Also, a pollinated calax will change it's hair.

    Best of luck.

    pistils have a shelf life... they live, die, and are replaced throughout flowering.. one day you can go in and have a flower covered in red/brown hairs, and the day next they could be all white again...

    as was said, misting them can cause them to die and turn brown... rubbing against them or touching them can turn them brown... there are a lot of factors that can make them turn brown.. it holds no bearing over the doneness of the flower itself tho... pistils are only there to catch pollen... and nothing more...

    The only way to know when your plants are ready is by looking at the Try-chromes. Don't worry about pistils, and their color, Old school fable.

    Clear = Not ready
    clear + cloudy = an up active high
    clear + cloudy + amber = best time to harvest ( 10% clear, 80% cloudy, 10% amber)
    cloudy + Amber = Narco stone
    all amber = garbage (my opinion, and all the good stuff is rotting)
