      baffe, they look so awesome!! You've done an outstanding job!!!

      One advice: Pinch off all the flowers below: they are called SUCKERS, because they suck energy away from top growth and they won't ever amount to jack. Pinch all them suckers!!! ;-)

    Hmm alltatup I cant post more pictures to the thread, do you know what is going on? I deleted some of the oldest pictures in the thread but still gives me error?

    Edit:
    TOKABIGONE gave some tips so i will try and post the pics i wanted from the beginning, thanks man!

    Seems to be working now but i had to cut down pic nr2 in size so maybe there is a cap for pics that are over 8mb as it was first?

      Hahaha yeah i really hope so! She is looking so good and i tried to look at the trichomes with a 30x loupe but it was really hard. The hairs are mostly white with a few orange ones and they are all standing right out so we have atleast a few more weeks. When do you usually harvest, all milky white or mix with milky and amber?

      baffe I have found that a 15x belomo triplet loupe gives me the clearest view of triches: much better than a 10x or a 20x.

      I think i figured it out so if you have problem in the future check if the filesize is over 8mb, it seems to be a hard cap that you cant post pics over 8mb. I just reduced the size of the one pic i couldnt post and the other pic was 7,55mb and that worked.

    baffe It took me a few years to stop harvesting too early. This post may help you with how to get used to trichome viewing: https://forum.growweedeasy.com/forum...chomes-clearly

    It takes practice to see when the trichome heads really swell up and kind of hang over the stalk: practice, practice, practice. I like to see all the brown hairs (pistils or stigmas) nice and dark and curled in, shrivelled, not moist; that's one thing. I like to see very few clear trichomes, not a lot. I like to see a few amber triches, but I don't like a lot of it. You get to this place where you look at the bud and it's not changing anymore; it's done, it's baked!!!!

      alltatup That was a great post you did so thanks again for your knowledge! I have ordered BelOMO 15x Triplet Loupe Magnifier. 9mm (.35"). In the meantime i go by the pistills and right now its a mix with white and brown and they are all standing right out. What i can understand about when you harvest it sounds like you are looking for the "couchlock" effect? I will harvest one bud at milkywhite to try it out and then wait for a mix with milky/amber. Will take some new pics tonight so you can see how she looks now, buds are starting to fatten up hehe love it!

        baffe No, I don't go for couchlock, never. But I want to make sure that the THC is at its peak ripeness; sometimes the weed can be too "racey" if you harvest too soon. So I never wait for lots of amber triches.

        So you are looking for triches to be most milky white?

        You have to distinguish between the trichome head before it gets full and looks like a mushroom head, and after: https://www.growweedeasy.com/harvest

        You start to notice the subtle differences after lots of practice.

      We are in week 8 now and i took some new pics this time in the dark to try to see better. I have the loupe that you recommended now alltatup and it is amazing and i can see very clear now if the heads are clear or cloudy and my estimation from yesterday is that most triches are still very clear. Can you determine from these pics how many weeks approx i have left? I wanted to start with the flush when its like 2 weeks from harvestday and i cant really tell myself. It is a mix with white/brown pistills on each bud but i would say mostly brown hairs.

        Looking good baffe. You are getting close. I would say another week or two. Hard to see the trichs but the hairs haven't curled up yet.

          Thanks alot! Yeah i was thinking myself that its probably two more weeks. I have a great loupe that Alltatup recommended and i can see real good that triches are still pretty much transparent and the hairs are still like 50/50 white and brown and most of them are not curled in. i will look again tonight at the triches and see if something has changed, the process is moving pretty fast now But then i think i will start to flush now or is it to early you think?
