How much longer

  • Good morning everyone! So I spent the day installing and upgrading a new add-on for AFN that effects our vendor and breeder forums. It's the same setup that we are using on High of the Tiger, but we didn't realize it would effect members a bit differently here on how it's been received.

    The major benefit of the add-on is that it allows breeders/vendors a global calendar (that they add their own events to,) a group media gallery, group discussion area, an information/about tab, and a few other goodies that should make the experience overall a better one.

    One major caveat to point out, the new groups (where you see the overlay) unfortuantely *REQUIRE* you to join them in order to post in them. This is done by design of the software (and I understand why,) however it's been requested to see if we can circumvent this somehow. I will inquire to the developer to see if it's an option available or one that can be added to future versions. So to be clear, you MUST JOIN the group to be able to post and reply, even if your existing threads were there before. We apologize for this minor inconvenience but it's a one-time deal and then it's back to business :-)
  • Hey we're testing out our new Raffle/Giveaway software and wanted to invite you all to try it out with us for a chance to win a Smokin' Screws pipe screen!

    This will be for USA-based growers only (to start,) and the only requirements are 25 minimum post count to put in an entry (which you can do once per hour!)

The speed of these autos is head spinning. The trichs are numerous and clear. How much longer would you think? They are at the begginning of the 10th and are near finishing but weather here is so bad. I am thinking about bringing them in and putting in window with bright light. it is so close and the chance of mold is great. Thank You

Welcome to AFN! I hope you like what you've seen of it so far! To answer your question, it's hard to say without pics, and when to harvest is really a personal preference. All clear trichs mean that the buds aren't mature yet. Mostly cloudy or milky with a few amber trichs is the sweet spot for most people. Mostly amber/brown trichs is considered over ripe. But if mold is a high risk, I'd move them inside for the latest few weeks.

Thank You. I brought the ladies in for 2 days. The weather forecast yesterdays was 80% chance of rain and that for the rest of the week with Monday being the best day with partly cloudy with 40%. Today beautiful sunny no rain and weather reports shows no rain and plenty of sunshine and heat for the next 6 days. Tomorrow I expect to read about the blizzard coming up out of the Gulf.
The crystals are plentiful and crystal clear. In these autos is that like a week to finish. On a regular outdoor female I would be looking at 3 to 4 weeks. How do the signs translate to auto flowers? Being a gardener I usually go by look and feel but the process is much more leisurely. When you have 8 to 14 months from seed to harvest. This is my first auto grow and it does seem that the stages of the plants life definitely happen in a shorter time.

I wish I had a decent camera to show you the trichs. I notice yesterday some of the trichs on the lower buds were turning amber. Since it will be raining for three days. I am going to bring them into the bay window. Then I am thinking I will but them into the dark for a couple of days.
I am seeing (less than 1% percent) amber. How much longer do you think? I am thinking a day or two before it is ready. Are they that quick at maturing?

A curious thing I heard about harvest and drying. These dirt growers take the plant with roots and place them in water, in the dark for two days and then hang to dry with the roots. I thought interesting. Could it be a way to flush? Has anyone ever harvest the plant roots and all? Then dry with the roots on?
Don't seen like it would hurt but it may. Y'all have any thoughts?

My Blue Cheese Auto’s Say 65-75 days ... it’s at the point where I don’t even need to look really...
