    Okay guys I'm really sorry to ask , and I'm deffantly not asking for a predicted yield , I know to check the trics but my loops have gone missing im about nearly 9 weeks into flower , seeds were sprouted on 19th September , so I have to ask do they look ready ? Last time I orders a loop it took 2 weeks to arrive

    Cheers there's only really the odd hair here or there that's still while mite on the bottom buds , just wasn't %100 still cause all other strains I've dealt with / seen in person the hairs receeded a lot more

    I'd let it ride a bit longer if u can. Those hairs or pistils will recede and cause those calyxes to swell and give you more yield.

    white hairs have nothing to do with maturity man, check it out, its all about trichomes, their degradation, color, to choose harvest time

    Unfortunately this statement is completely false. Checking trichomes when you have lots of white hairs still showing is a waste of time, the plant's just NOT ready yet.

    In your case, the plant looks real close. You have plenty of dark hairs and only a small fraction that are still white. If you're unable to check the trichomes, just harvest the most mature buds and leave the others to grow a little more. If you're still unsure, harvest half now and the other have in 2 - 3 weeks, then label them 'early harvest' and ' late harvest', and make you're own determination which 'level of doneness' you prefer.

    Good job on your plants and happy harvesting!

    thats nuts dude, all kinds of things can darken white hairs, other than maturity. I've had milky trichs turn amber right on time while still seeing white hairs.
    The very best growers on the planet suggest looking at trichome contents beginning when the breeder suggests, or even leading up to that day.

    Found a loop had a nice mix of mainly cloudy few clears and few ambers , think I mite want few more Amber tho as I'm mainly a fan of indica and this strain was Durban poison
