    Default How long until Harvest?

    Hey guys, first time grower here. My plant is just past it's 8th week of flowering but I've been having problems with leaves dying off and yellowing on a large scale. Trichomes are around 80% cloudy but no visible amber from what I can discern from my loupe. Just looking for some advice on when to chop? Think problems may be down to nute lockout but with the plant being so near the end of it's life cycle I've been desperately trying to flush it before it's too late. Appreciate your feedback, thanks!

    Here is a photo i've just taken of the plant. Apologies for the link, having trouble navigating my new phone properly! Its a Strain Hunters Moneymaker. Medium is just multi compost (I didn't know any better being to begin with...) Nutes were Tomorite with Seaweed extract.

    Hmmmm, mate, that has to come down lol!! My mate grew some of these, they hermied, full of seeds! Like being in the 90s again lol

    It look, well, done.... flush it mate and get it down ASAP I would. You say 80% milky, thall be ten percent amber within 2 weeks, so start flushing now. Of course thats my opinion, its your crop, if you wanna push the trichs a little longer than thats all good. What medium are you in?

    Yeah, heard the horror stories about hermie in this strain. Guess i've been lucky so far! I think i'll give it the chop tomorrow. Still got a few Calyxs swelling a bit up top and I wasn't sure so its good to get your opinion! Thanks pal! Medium was just Multi-purpose compost before I knew any better... drainage is horrible to say the least!

    You should give it a weeks flush mate, just to make sure there is no build up. Give them a good flush tonight and leave them to sit for a couple of days atleast.

    Cool man!! Good luck, the more you can flush it over the next few days the better, try and leech as much out of the plant as possible before chop

    Mon the harvest my friend! Well done on reaching the end

    Just my opinion lad but she looks ready to me, I would start a flush now.

    The new growth looks like foxtailing maybe the lights to close.

    You haven't done a bad job though mate with just Tomorite and seaweed.

    As Macky says give it an initial good flush and then just water. I would normally say lush for a week or 2 but I think time is of the essence in this case.
