Question from a noob, my plant has tricomes on it, milky white with the balls on the tips, but the thing that is making me question pulling her, is the buds are really "airy"/sparse. In other words, they aren't dense, like I would expect. Some info on the crop:

-Bag Seed
-grown outdoors
-planted on 4/20
-SW Florida
-gets a solid 6hrs of mid-day light, and shaded by a big tree the rest of the time (in the morn, and in the eve)
- Summer rains have kept her well watered
-planted in organic soil comprised of 1/3 peat moss, 1/3 vermiculite, 1/3 oraganic compost (mixture of mushroom, manure, and planting soil)

To pull or not to pull????

See the photo below for visual reference

I'd ask how you have buds already with milky trichomes unless an auto flower? You didn't mention how long it has been growing or how long in flower but the last few weeks are the hardest part if the wait. The lat 2-3 weeks s where most bud weight and density occur. The experienced grower would say when you think they are ready wait another week,

I honestly don't know what strain/type this is, I found seeds in a bag, and gave them a try. The trichomes I am referring to are on the leaves right near the buds. To answer your question, though, its been growing outdoors for 3 months. It should be noted, that I started three plants, and this one has been growing differently. In other words, it "took off" right away. I transplanted her because she was crowding her sisters. I am suspecting the transplant shocked her into flowering, because the other two just started flowering. I'd say she's been flowering for 2-3 weeks now?

I don't know, the tricomes says she's ready, but the density of the buds says she's not. Could be I am just totally aloof, though.

Sorry, I would like to ask a few questions !!!
1 I started training three weeks ago, why some seedlings will grow slowly?
2 Many seedling foliage yellow, greenish veins, leaves whitish, how could this be?

Time: three to four weeks
Variety: White Widow
Soil PH: 6.8
Watering Water PH: 5.5
Temperature: 27 ° C
The level of brightness: 300
Lighting: LED 200W
Lights Time: 24/0

There are professionals who can help me answer it?
Thank you !!!

It's irrelevant now but from what ive seen in my personal experience, the trichomes on the leaves will develop much faster than the buds. And if your plant didn't get the right nutrients (lots of phosphorus) during flowering, than the buds would be pretty airy. Invest $15 in a luminescent microscope and look at you buds. Then refer to Sonic420's post above for preferred harvest time.
Happy Growing :peace:

Purple kush seed from crop king

from seed

about a month old.... in vegetative stage

3-4 nodes i think, 6-8 inches tall

clay pebbles on a drip system

2 gallon pots

fox farm nutrients

at first watered them 15 minutes on 45 minutes off but they appeared to be over watered, i havnt watered them in 24 hours because i think and hope they are over watered and thats why they began to droop in the first place.

feed them fox farm nutes 4-5 days on then have been running a flush for a day in between before they started drooping

ive seen no bugs

they are in a closet with a door open, with a fan on. They stay in between 70-80 degrees, humidity is very low right now like under 40, was 60 + before i thought i was over watering. my ph is always around 6, i monitor it regularly now. My problem is im not sure if im over watering or under-watering. Even though i havnt watered in 24 hours, the clay pebbles mid way to bottom of pot are still wet. Very frustrating i read so much info online but i seem to get nowhere, any help would be great.

Not an expert but let them dry get a moisture reader. Common mistake for noobs is over watering and over feeding. I'm no pro so always take a second opinion on but I'll answer the best I can. What is Temps in tent?

If your trying to determine what's wrong with your plant you need to pay attention to it in the first place because that is will help too determine weather the problem occurred from the bottom of the plant and gradually moved to the top or vice versa. If that's the case you most likely have a nute problem but if it's starts in a random place it's most likely pests

Your leaves curling like that and sort of yellowing out our signs of the over watering to solve this you can search hydro water schedules for a drop system and follow that and gradually your plant should become healthier
