    Trichome check

    On about 1/3 of my lady, about 50-60% of the pistiles are curling and brown. Don't know why it is just part of the plant but, Oh Well. I've taken a picture of the trich's from that area. Being it is my first grow, I was hoping someone could tell me is they are getting cloudy or is it my imagination/lack of patience.

    I did clip a small bud, dried it in the microwave, and smoked it up.

    I started growing to save money and control the inputs. I took the other benefits with a grain of salt (I naturally doubt most of what I read and hear). Even though it was early, dried in a for microwave, no curing etc. it is the smoothest smoke I have had in forever. Thank you, thank you.
    It's not how crazy I am, but how much I enjoy it that makes me dangerous.

    They look cloudy to me. I have a hard time telling the difference between clear and cloudy with my handheld microscope so I wait until just a few turn amber.

          I know that it is sacrilege lol. But it goes along with everything else I have done with this plant. It was a test plant, and I have done things on purpose to see what type of consequences come with mistakes and doing it the right way.

          I wonder what a microwave will do to trichomes... It can't be good for them to get zapped that way: you're sending heat straight through them. But you said it smoked ok? That's amazing...

          It smoked ok. not much flavor but smoother than I thought. Not a great high either but, that may come from early harvest. More updates after I harvest and dry the rest of my lady.

          Think they need a bit longer . Look for cloudy / milky trichomes. Still clear to me ?? They look beautiful though

            Nope only chopped a few buds. got about 5 grams dry. I will be waiting util the trichomes are white for the rest. Had to have something to compare to ripe and properly dried and cured buds lol.

            They do look good, if I may..the test buds look slightly airy, are you having trouble with excess heat?

            Yes they were a bit airy. Had no heat or humidity problems throughout the grew. It may come from how much experimentation I did on her. Although I only took buds from bottom away from maximum light. Don't know.
