First, I'm so thankful I found this site! I'm semi-retired and trying my hand at growing. My first attempt is coming to an end with not so good results. Not giving up though! I would love to share more but that will come with time. Thanks for having me!

I planted a White Widow Auto flower on 8/7/21 in a kit from "A Pot for Pot" (5 gal). It lives in a closet, doors open most of the time. Lights: 2x2 Spider Farm Grow (SF1000D). 2 weeks later my spouse insisted on adding another plant. Same strain but planted in a plastic pot (not sure where he found that), soil is Miracle Grow Performance Organics. I then added a 75w LED grow light. My first plant kept getting taller but nothing else. The 2nd plant looks to me like it is ready.

Do you have a scope where you can look at the trichomes? If not get one. If you do they should be starting to turn Amber before a plant is done. 30% is when I really start thinking about harvesting. Cal/Mag....meh....I wouldn't. Sometimes Big is our class clown and you just have to roll with the punches.

how does a ganja grower determine the percentage of amber trichomes?

30% eh.......are you sure it’s not 34.823% ?

or 27.365% ?

does one count 10 trichomes or count 100?

3 amber out of 10 equals 30% ..........but there are billions of trichomes on one plant so in the best interests of science , shouldn’t one do a test sample count of at least 2 or 3 million trichomes?.....for better accuracy?

what is the best way to count a test sample in the most accurate way?

is there a better way to determine plant ripeness?

I'll take my chances that I'm close enough just by looking and my experience doing so thru the yrs.
