Grow Journal of the Month: May 2017
Yeah man. Don't listen to the seed banks, they always tell you earlier flowering time and higher THC, CBD, so you buy from them. They all lie mate. But I would of kept them going, dont go off grow time go off tric colour so you bud is how you want it. Myself I like to watch the buds double in size in the final 2 week, strain dependant obviously.
Strain dependent is the key phrase there. What I have been doing is going by the percentage of opaque trichomes (I like to aim at the 60% because of the Sativa high, even though to be honest I haven't noticed all that much of a difference in the buzz). I noticed that this is about when the pistils start turning color noticeably on other strains. I didn't even use a magnifier on this grow because I was trying to go by pistil color change. Oh well, another lesson learned; I did this mostly for the seeds anyway. Maybe I'll try plants in various stages of pistil color change (from none brown to all brown) to see if I can tell the difference then.
The seed banks do embellish a bit, huh? I haven't grown anything I can't smoke all day long yet, but according to them I should be experiencing something psychedelic or trippy. Keep workin' on it on that end guys; I'll take my part of the blame as a beginning grower, but I get a decent buzz from them all and that's it.
