Day 72-40: So I'm getting so scared I'm not going to know when it's time to harvest or when to flush before harvest. I know I'm only 40 days into flower, but I'm worried I'll get caught up in watching them grow and miss the correct timing.
Anyways they are looking good. Another day of usual bloom feed. Temps are high for the tent, but our days and nights have been pretty warm it was over 96 degrees out today.
If anybody has any advise on how much longer you think or any of your past experiences. I have a 30 zoom lens, but i don't think its working very well for me. The pictures aren't clear enough for me to see what clarity the trichomes are.

Day 71-39: Sooo.... Ladies aren't looking to good right now. Anybody have any advice on what you think it is.
They are getting the same nutrients as usual. I kind of think it's light burn. The light was to close, so I just moved it up. Anybody have any other ideas. They are dark green and curling under. They also have a tad bit of tip burn.

Ok. So since I posted I did a 4 gallon fresh water flush (with appropriate ph of course) and it needed it that for sure. When I tested the water after the first gallon it tested over 2100ppm, after the 4th gallon it tested 220 ppm. The salt/nutrient build up was bad.
I'm hoping that was the major issue, because otherwise I'm lost with it. They've had very consistent nutrients from day 1 and this is our first problem besides our splitting (which we all know was 100 my fault).
If anyone else has an input or ideas please feel free to give them. It's always nice to here from an outsiders point of view.

Thanks in advance for all the help guys. Without this site I'd be like a lost puppy!!

2100 ppm is very high. Looks like nitrogen toxicity which it would be with ppm that high. Are you running a reservoir?

Yes, that's what I was thinking. They are currently in 3 gallon soft sided pots. So they drain really well.
Maybe I don't give them enough water at a time? I give 1/2-3/4 a gallon every other day. The water doesn't come out the bottom like when I flushed. This is my first flush. I think they need to be flushed 4 weeks into flower to prevent something like this. I guess love and learn.
I think I'll lower my nutes a little bit. Still keep roughly the same feed, just a little lighter on each nutrient.

Day 74-42: Hey everyone, Today marks 6 weeks of flower and the girls are looking much better after my scare a couple days ago. This is the first feeding since the flush. I pulled back a little bit on my nutrients so my ppm are about 900-1000, where I've been giving 1200 since the flip into flower.
BB1 is looking good, not really growing in height at all but her buds are really fat and her hairs are tarting to turn amber.
BB2's leaves are starting to relax some and not be so curled under and her leaves aren't near as dark as before. Her buds are starting to stretch a bit so there really skinny at the top. She's going to be a beast if those tops fatten up a little. BB2 doesn't have near as many amber hairs as BB1 does.
It's also been rainy the last couple days so the tents been in the high 80s instead of dipping into the 90s sometimes.

Day 77-45: Thanks everyone for the positive words. Sometimes it's nice to know your not completely screwing shit up! So we are 45 days into flower and today was the last water with nutrients. They are pretty close, I'm thinking 1 week for BB1 and 2 weeks for BB2.
I looked at BB1 under the microscope and I possibly could have seen one or 2 amber trichomes. So she's right there.
BB1 is so much fatter in the hud department.
Where BB2 is starting to stretch, so all her buds are long and on the skinny side. Hoping she'll fatten up with time.

Sorry everyone, had a family emergency that was very time consuming. I harvested BB1 and got right over 3 oz. I will hopefully be harvesting BB2 this weekend.
