    A silicon trichome bruiser. Think rigid wire with a silicon paddle at the end. The silicon paddles are interchangeable depending on the size you want. I also used the mouth pliers. You need three hands to hold the sugar leaf, loupe, and bruiser. The mouth pliers are like an extra hand to hold the leaves.
    If trichomes are taking too long to turn ginger, you can bruise them to hurry things along. Keep the ginger even between the plants.

    Well...
    I wound up getting one of those silicon trichome bruisers y'all have heard about, to get things gingering. I used the .5mm at first and wound up with the 3mm because I am lazy and wanted to get it done. Lots of work. Started on Wednesday and have good ginger trichomes. The Olympian got the most bruising.
    The smell got pretty damn strong. I could smell it in my bedroom, which means nothing to any of you because you have not been to my apartment, that I am aware of. I do not like an overpowering scent of any sort. This got stargazer lily pistil strong.
    Indicator leaves (fans that die in late-stage flowering) discolored and died.
    These are the tallest auto or feminized plants I have grown. Also, the stinky-est. Also, the trichomiest under my light. The light is super bright and white and washes colors.
    I do not know how dense they are as I would rather have the trichomes lost in bud pinching than knowledge of what I might get.
    Kudos to the breeder!
    Feel me?

    Thanks, kiddos. It's done wonders since I realized last grow that I was only giving 1/3 the flowering nutes. We're all on track with this one. Still, Chessgirl and Jr. Varsity are 12 and 9 inches shorter, respectively, than the Olympian and Varsity.
    I'mma gonna havta give my breeder 5 stars on his website.

    The Norwegian death bugs are gone. But a number of my houseplants have mealy bugs.
    The smell fills up the nostrils and sinuses.
    Getting trichomey.

    I've gotten lazy enough about growing that another 10 days won't keep me in suspense, wooly manmoth. Gave water, yesterday. I'll go with nutes on the next one, at least.
    I like the way the buds are looking. Usually, I don't care. These are nice.

    By my math you're at about 65 days. Push them to 75 at least. Maybe 80. They will swell a lot these last days. And don't stop feeding them yet brostacius.

    Big-ol Indica in my experience. I also remember you saying they were S. leaning.
    The hairs are pretty much 98% Opie Taylor ginger on the Olympian and Varsity and hugging the buds. If hairs were the indication, Opie Taylor would be hanging in my tent.
    Alas, I'm not seeing many ginger trichomes.

    Actually she's a indica leaning girl. Her buds were on the thick side. Puts my ass on the couch. Would expect copius ginger at harvest.

    Going2fast My experience growing has been primarily Indica with ginger leaning trichomes.
    Bessie being Sativa leaning, am I looking for the same ginger leaning trichomes?
