    so i get the idea of them changing, im having isssues waiting way past the 8 weeks. ive watched some over my last few grows to see the effects, ive pulled them cloudy threw to amber, no i want to go to 50 + % amber but im worried ill go over & let the tricks die off.
    my strains say 8 weeks, but i think thats to 10%amber i want to go to serious couch lock for my patient.
    but they dont seem to be changing this round, next wed is 10 weeks/
    just keep watchin? will they change for sure or will they go to far & reduce the thc count?
    they seem to be cloudy now with alot of black trick heads on the sugar leaves but clear cloudy on the buds.the sugar leaves are only a little part of the plaant near top of bud. this is were i worry if im lookin in the right place.
    what you all do? for alot of amber

    Wish I could help you but I don't let them go very amber. It's not to hard to spot dead trichomes, so as long as you check them daily I don't see how you would ruin your crop waiting. Taking a strain past it's harvest point can result in some nanners being thrown. These are usually sterile. If you are looking for that knock down, d!ck in the dirt type high, you might want to look at a more Indica strain rather then trying to wait out a hybrid....jmo

    What are you growing, Ruffy? If the strains says 8 weeks, there is a good chance that it can and will got 9-10 or more. We know how those breeders like to underestimate their flowering times. If you want 50% amber, let it get 50% amber. I wouldn't be worried about dead trichs at 10 weeks. However, I have heard that some plants do not really go amber. You could always do a small taste test.

    Ruffy, how are the Jordan of the Island looking? I have never tried anything from them and (until you) did not know anyone who had grown their gear. I am looking at their God's OG Kush.

    My Blue City Diesel (BCD) if Jordan of the Islands.
    Love the plant- still in flowering so I don't have much of a smoke report.
    Wide variety in the pheno's though. 3/4 were girls.

    Also have his Blueberry- and have had no luck yet. The two I finally did pop were boys- but that is no reflection on the breeder.

    Beautiful Ruffy! I'll take quality over quantity any day.

    I went ahead and ordered the God's OG Kush. It just sounded so good. In addition, a good friend of mine gave me a couple of cuts of Blue Lights (Blueberry x Northern Lights) that her hubby is growing. They were a bit into flowering, so I hope they root okay.
