Vaping: Mephisto 24 Carat and Cosmic Queen from last grow
Hello Mephisto fans,

If you grew 24 Carat, I would appreciate hearing how yours ambered up, or not. Mine are now on day 77, still a fair amount of clear on the calyxes, and very little amber on them. How did yours behave, when did you chop?

Some day 77 pics:

There are still a few light colored pistils around, especially lower down on the plant. At the rate it seems to be going, my CQ will be done before the 24C which does not make a lot of sense. Any experience with 24C on this would be gratefully received. :shrug::thanks:

Pistils are not a sign of ripeness, trichs are. If you have Amber, they are done. You will never have perfectly cloudy or Amber trichs, they die off if taken too long. How is the smell? Personally, I woukd chop if you have aome Amber and mosly cloudy. You will always have some clear in the mix. Just my opinionx but Autos dont like to chase Amber. QualitY deminishes faster on Autos than Photos IMO. I actually shoot for minimal Amber. A fast strsin kike 24 Carat will decrease its quality quicker than a longer strain. Dont take too long, you will have less taste and less potentency if you wait too long. It shoukd be done before CQ. Peace, slow

Thanks for the help Slow, I appreciate it. I will chop them pronto. They are more than ten days over the standard max, so they should be done. Mephisto is not bad on their estimates.
