My plants are not producing what they could I want to extend flowering period bc im switching to a light that will produce what they require which they are not getting enough now. How long can I extend flowering for?

You can't really either speed up or slow down the flowering process. Unlike vegging which can be extended indefinately, flowering only lasts x number of days--takes as long as it takes. Basically, you flower until they are done. They are done when the trichs, as seen through a microscope are cloudy to amber. The mix of amber to cloudy is personal preference. Trichs have a finite life and will die if left too long.

Be warned that some strains when allowed to flower for too long can also throw nanners....the ones I hve experience with hve been sterile though. Still don't like seeing nanners. Jmo

i actually tried to find a 30x magnifying glass but have been unsuccesfull in getting anywhere close. is there any other way to tell harvest time. iv hear that when the hairs turn orang/brown faster then new ones can replace them that its also a sign. is this true?

You really can't go by the hairs.....eBay has the scopes for like 4 bucks shipped.
