Hi. I know that there must be a lot of topics like mine and I read almost all of them but I am so excited that I cant decide properly. I have few concerns about the plants which are some kind of sativa I think. Let me give you some info about the process. I germinated them late May.They were grown outdoor in Mediterranean climate. They didnt get enough sun light at the beginning. I burnt them with fertilizers.They werent watered properly , and they have a little ph promlems As a result out of 20 I was able to save four of them.Sativas in the pictures are about 30 cm/11 inches the indicas are more than one meter/40 inches. Those two sativas flowered and the other two indicas which are females havent flowered a bit yet.

My question is the pistols which have started to change their color to brown on the tips is a sign to harvest or some kind of disease. If they can be harvested how long time do I still have?.On my first post trichomes helped me a lot .I want to thank him here. Thank you all in advance.

Those are pistols turning red/brown or some color.
They are starting to ripen. a little.
I've read on here to look at the trichromes' head with a strong magnified and when 1/2 or more have turned amber is when they should get washed and then harvested,dried/cured.

I don't really know the length of time till its 'done', but I would imagine at least a few more weeks..could be a month,or more.

They haven't fattened up yet.

the brown tips on the pistols is not a worry..some strains get brown sooner then others..just keep a eye on those trichomes that will be the best way..before i found out about the trichomes i would test my plants by squeezeing them gently and when they are ready they are rock hard...i know thats not a 100% way like it is now with trichomes but thats what i used a long time ago..the soft spungy ones are the less developed in my exp
