    Started my own thread but no replies yet, guess I titled it kinda dumb. I'm officially at day 46 since first pistils (as a reference) I'm starting to see some ambers, and after seeing so many folks getting shot down for early pulls I'm curious if this strain (sorry unknown to me seed from dispensary bud) is just an early finisher? most pistils are retracting in and changing colors so kinda not sure. I'm scoping the odd amber on the outer leaves. Since I've blasted the heck outta these plants with over 1000W at close range :wall:, could the over exposure to high intensity light have stressed them into finishing early?

    The first step to recovery is admitting fault....so here it goes... I have no idea what I'm doing! Through arrogance and over confidence in my internet "research" I've managed to overwater, overgrow my space and an basically violate every single growing sins. So please help me fellow RIU growers, tell me what you think.

    looks pretty good, especially for someone who doesn't know what they're doing.
    don't worry about amber trichs on the sugar leaves, they always turn before calyx trichs, which are the ones that matter.
    the leaf trichs form earlier, and aren't as densely packed, so they age faster than calyx trichs. but, amber on your leaves is a sign you're getting close, maybe 2 to 3 weeks till you start seeing a fair amount on your calyxes

    Thanks for the reply, what you said is what I've been thinking but due to lack of experience was doubting myself.

    Well I have my first harvest coming down in a couple of weeks, most of the tricombs are cloudy but still have a few clear, just waiting for those amber ones to show their heads. Can't wait lol. I will do as this post directs and see how they turn out.

    You’re plants look good to me. I’m just glad autos are so forgiving. Mine looks like shit but ends up with nice big buds.

    Waiting out the last few days now..

    Planning on hanging in my tent, just leaving the exhaust on low with scrubber filter and passive intake.
    Temps are around 72F & RH between 40-50% for drying, should that be good?
    Suggestions welcome, really want to get the dry & cure right.

    Have jars, rh meters and boveda pack for curing..
    Pics below, starting to see cloudy trichs

    it may be a little too dry, you want the dry to take a minimum of 5 days, 8-10 is better. thats when the plant is breaking down chlorophyll and carbs/sugars, if it dries too quickly, they won't get to finish breaking that stuff down and you'll get harsh smoke

    Thanks, I have had that experience in the past..
    I am going to try some things to try and get the RH up a bit while they dry, they are some sweet smelling buds and I do not want to miss out on any of the flavor/smell...

    I am doing a few clones next so need to figure out how to get RH up anyway

    Thanks for the reply, these plants are now in full cure, dried them over about 10 days, including 4 in and out of jars drying.

    Hello,
    Just needing a second opinion before I chop as I haven't grown haze strains before, pretty sure this is liberty haze but not certain, its between 9 to 10 weeks flowering. Is it worth letting it keep going?
    Cheers :) Screenshot_20180408-085619.png 20180408_085429.jpg 20180408_085417.jpg
