    Well sad news today. Chrystal number 2 and Super Skunk both have pollen sacs. So I removed them today. Happy news is now that I just finished week 3, Chrystal number 1 is starting to get huge. The white Rhino is still tiny. The Roots are also all balled up unlike the rest of my plants. I think that's why it didnt grow as well as the other plants. I only took a few pics of Chrystal number 1. These pics are after a light defol.

    Happy growing.

        Thanks for confirming Buds.

        OJH, I won't be surprised or upset. This Chrystal plant has been real fun. If you blow up the pics, you can see how crystally she is already. Even some of the fan leaves. I didn't notice til I posted the pictures.

          I am 4.5 weeks into flower. Nirvana says 8-10 weeks. What are some advantages to harvesting during the 8th week and advantages of waiting the full 10 weeks. I started flower on 12-17-17.

          I ordered a 420 microscope from Amazon. It's like $13. Supposed to enhance trics and check plants for spider mites. Will report back once I try it. I would get it Friday or Saturday.

            Madman960 - Just a suggestion. If you have a good cell phone, sometimes the built-in camera will take some pretty good pictures. Check to see if your camera has a "macro" mode and snap pics at the highest resolution possible. If you're savvy, you can then transfer those pics to your PC and zoom in at your heart's content.

          hey Madman I just finished a grow that had a male in it all the other plants were pollinated so they grew seeds . My point is that they put alot of energy into seeds and not buds so the yield was down,Its still good pot but I know how good it can be .

          at 8 weeks the buds were not swollen yet so I let them grow at 10 weeks the buds were still small so I started looking and found the seeds so they all came down that day. If they have seeds I wouldn't wait but if they dont then leave them so they can swell you get a ton of weight and bulk in the last 2 weeks hope that helps

            OJH,

            Thanks for the info. I am 4.5 weeks into flower. No real buds yet. Leaves around the bud sites are starting to get really frosty. When should I see actually buds? Nirvana says 8-10 weeks of flower. Realistically, I am halfway through flower. Thanks.

              By now buds should have been forming Madman960

            Thanks Dutch. I guess that means I was likely to late removing the males. I will finish out this grow and see what happens.

              "No real buds yet." Even if they were pollinated, you should see buds developing.

              One other thing: I switched one of my boxes to 12/12 and didn't see pistils till week 3, so I subtracted those first two weeks from the actual flowering time. Don't know if your situation was like that.

              ATU, thanks. I don't recall seeing pistols until week 3. When should I adjust my starting point to? Or would I be at 2.5 weeks?

              Hey Mad,It doesn't matter when you calculate flower started, it's the finish that matters. Get your magnifier so you can see whats what. Myself,when I take a look and see a half dozen amber trichs out of 50 or 60 I start my flush. I've found that regardless of what the seed co. says each one of the little darlins march to the beat of a different bongo. They'll let you know when they're ready.

              Morning Madman, her buds are forming nicely, a week from now they want look the same ,lots more filled in.

            #85
            Thanks D.A.A.S. I was confused cause they don't really look like buds yet. Figured maybe they got pollinated. I will try to get pictures every couple days. The tops are getting very sugary. It's an amazing site.

            My 420 microscope arrived yesterday. It was broken above the pin. It's my 2nd and both were broken at the same spot. I don't recommend buying it.

              Those are buds, they are just not developed yet. They will fatten up for you nicely. They look like thewre coming along nicely.

              Thanks DAAS. To me they look about the same size. I flipped to 12/12 Dec 17. I just defolled a bit and removed some of the lower buds that were receiving minimal light. They also don't have any sugar crystals like the upper buds.

              Happy growing.

              Hey Madman, How do they look the same?, Look at your last week's picture, the buds are twice as big. That's what gets larger is your buds.

              D.A.A.S.69. Most likely anticipation. Waiting for the nugs to form. Just have to wait some more.

            Today's pictures. The white rhino is so tight, I can't figure out how to trim off the leaves that need cut. Chrystal still looks good. Not sure if I should be removing any of the buds or larger leaves. Still waiting for the nugs to form. The anticipation is killing me. Lol.

            Happy growing.
