I have a monster with about 7-8 tops (white widow). It is in about the 7th week of flowering but still looks as it did in week 5. it doesn't look as if the plant is sickly except the branches cant hold there weight and are bending. No spots, some of the tops have some heat damage from being to close to the light, but i fixed the light problem. and there are no leaks in the room. Im using 3 gallon pots. The plants doesnt seem to be producing many trics either. I have younger plants with more trics. Please help?

at seven weeks into flower they should be bending down from the wieght of the buds...If they get too heavy you may want to tie 'em up.

If the trichromes that are already on your plant will are amber then the plant is done, if they are still clear then the plant will definately keep growing more bud. right now you are probably at a time where your buds are really filling up, sometimes this can really be hard to see but your plants are gaining in weight. also try giving her some fresh soil on top and a good flush followed by a good fertalizer

thick sturdy branches and root base will support massive buds if started in a bigger container . it is too late to transplant now unless you want to spend the next 2 weeks pulling off male pollen sacs from stressing your plant out . your buds will mature in your pot just keep them tied up for the rest of your flowering time and try to let go 10weeks instead of 8weeks and 5 days will be worth it trust me .

wait till around 70-80% of the "hairs" has turned amber, then your done if the trichomes are "cloudy" and shrink a little.I have a pic of how the trichs and hairs will look at time of harvest,i`ll try post it but i`m having some problems browsing
