Hi all.....this is my 2nd grow I’ve got 2 strawberry OG from Cali-connect and 2 Gelato #33the Larry bird from blimburn seeds the flower time on these are 8-9 weeks 53-64 days but it’s exactly 2 weeks before that time and my trichomes look ready now here are some pics from the microscope they aren’t the best because the fans are blowing the buds around but it’s visible I don’t want that narcotic effect nor do I want super speedy high either somewhere in the middle I’m guessing it’s time now or in a week what do you guys think like I said I’m still a rookie so I’d appreciate the input!!

You can still give them a feeding if you want. Should probably cut out any extra mag. that you might be giving them. Don't want it building up in the bud before harvest. I'm also in the wait camp. Would wait till they pretty much all cloud up and a few go amber but that's just me.

Agreed guys and gals .... thx for the help!! Yes I’ll be definitely using the microscope/magnifying glass I’ll be checking them every cpl days I DO HAVE A QUESTION ... I USE BLOOMCITY ORGANICS KIT TO FERTILIZE ITS ALL ORGANIC SEA BASED AS WELL AS KELP, SILICA BOOST AND HYDROGEN PEROXIDE 35% which oxygenates the water which is the only non organic substance so aside from stopping that being I’m all organic DO I STILL NEED TO FLUSH ? Here’s a cpl pics I took yesterday !

No need to flush. In fact, if you are organic, you can't actually flush. I have never been a big believer in flushing. Plants look great! You will be happy you waited.

There is a good read here in the Marijuana News section about flushing, or rather non-flushing.

That totally makes sense.... you’re awesome and I appreciate all the help you’ve given me! I just watered with straight R O water last night and boy my leaves all started turning yellow already is that why you’re saying I can’t flush?

No. When you do a flush, you are attempting to wash away any nutrients/salts that exist within the soil. With organic, the soil itself feeds the plant. You cannot wash the "nutrients" out as they are, essentially, the soil.

LOL--Your leaves are not turning yellow from a single RO only watering last night. Anything you are seeing now probably started 2 weeks ago. While you can kill a plant quickly with way to much food, few things happen overnight, especially with organic. I don't think I would quit feeding them yet--2 weeks is a long time to go with no food.

I hear ya .... agreed it started earlier remember I posted why are my leaves turning this color ? We all thought it was some sort of deficiency but it was just my plant telling me it’s almost time I guess ....but just to clarify I’m not using super soil I’m using a sprinkle in dried up crustaceans etc. That are all organic and I mix in soil once a week it’s a kit from BLOOMCITY so I’m not sure if it’s what you’re thinking.... or is it? Lol

Thanks man I really appreciate the compliment I do put my heart n soul into this thing I’m just glad my girls are right where they are supposed to be.... except I can’t get those pretty purple leaves I’ve seen on other gelato strains in one of my reads I read that you get them by late bloom if you have high temps during the day77-79 degrees and cool nights at around 65-67 and I get those numbers but no cool looking leaves yet any reason u can think of I’d love to hear! Yes I’m def waiting on that day where the trichs are fully matured and no couch lock no anxiety I like it somewhere in the middle n now you got me even more siked !!! thx again
