I have an urgent question. My plants were put to flower March 18, 2011. One or two plants were showing pistils about a week before that.
In the last 2 weeks the upper leaves have all gotten pretty yellow and crispy, like a Phosphorous deficiency.. I think i might have burned them, although i'm using pretty forgiving organic nutes. In that time the buds have swelled up pretty well though and there are lots of trichs visible.
In the last week the trichs have turned milky and then tonight i noticed lots of amber trichs on the leaves. You can see in the pictures attached.
But two things:
- buds still have new pistils coming out
- Only in week 7 of flower(almost week 8)
Pretty quick flower, and there are still new hairs coming out? Should i harvest the top buds now? I'm growing with CFL's and didnt move them around, hoping to harvest in stages. Is the burning of the leaves causing the trichomes to turn faster or something?
I attached pics, hoping to get feedback on when to harvest. Good thing i flushed the plants heavily about a week ago(when leaves started looking terrible).
Thanks for the advice,
