    Re: pistels changing amber 4th week flower

    How long is yur flowering time ?

    Some strains can finsh early growing conditions are near perfect ?


    What your plant is saying its just getting ready for the good stuff


    My own plant/cutting started having pistil going amber around week 6 to 7 bearing in mind i've got a max total flowering peroid of 10 weeks as it said on the seed packet, its only really been the last week up to week 8 when the bud started to swell up & gain size... i still have another 2 weeks to go.


    Personally i like my pistils near 100% amber, this is all just individual preference how we or you like our bud i also like to watch trichome colour with a small pocket microscope.
    We are a culture fully immersed in the ideology that truth is what we see and what we hear. Yet we hire lawyers to manipulate truth, we hire PR and marketing firms to create truth, and we hire investigators and private detectives to uncover truth. The problem to which I am affected every day is truth in the cannabis industry.

    are the pistels cahanging colors or are the trichomes changing color. with out pics its hard to say what you are talking about. different types have different colors of buds. so what kind are you growing, how long have they been in veg and flower and what is your lighting? lots of variables. happy 420

    Re: Pistels changing amber 4th week flower

    I wouldn't judge by pistils. Though they might behave consistently for a given strain, the pistils don't necessarily change with the trichomes, and it's the trichome color that matters. Pistil change color when the plant gives up on that flower. Most plants are busy growing new ones elsewhere when this happens, so it's a good sign, but unless you already 'know' a strain you won't get an accurate harvest window that way. Use a scope and look at trichomes. Trichomes change as the cannabinoids inside degrade into other cannabinoids. THC max is in the middle of that chain of changes. They will start crystal clear, then cloud up, then they start to change to amber. Cloudy is good, some amber will be more indica-like. Clear is too early, and all amber may be too late. The strain and personal taste will also influence the decision.

    fields of amber means harvest time, after that you get stupid long high. Before the fields of amber you get energy high. At least that is what my gardens tell me.
    Good luck!!

    I have a couple of fast flowering strains that the hairs turn early. My CSSH and TGA 3D both turn early in flower.

    Delicious Seed's Critical Super Silver Haze at day 29, but she is a special 48 day flowering pheno.

    Every year, more than 15,000 patients die in North America from ordinary aspirin and Ibuprofen. In the 5000+ years of use not one single person has ever died of marijuana toxicity.
