    Default Short rider autos on day 51 any ideas on times to harvest

    guys after some advice on these i have, i got 3 nirvana short rider autos on day 51, there under 250W hps on 24/7 i water water feed schedule them and they look very well indeed, i took some pictures of these as i dont think there is that long left now, but i see some people pulling them at 70 days but somehow i dont see these going that long, i have stopped the nutes and just feeding plain water,

    pistils are 40% amber now and i took some pics of the trichs aswell.

    pls let me know your thoughts as i would like to catch them at premium time if i can

    thanks in advance

    Hello johnstone lol.
    The link you've posted needs a password to access as it goes straight to your account log in page.
    I suggest you either get the direct link to the picture, embed it on this page using the photo link at the top of your post or upload it to the thct gallery.

    You don't really wanna be going by the pistils - you should be looking at the amount/percentage of amber trichomes. You should be aiming for around 50/75% amber trichomes for a very 'couchlock', body stone or less amber trichs and more cloudy for a more heady high..it's your choice.

    are you using CFL or HPS? you should notice the buds really fluffing up in the final few weeks so its worth waiting a little longer, and if you are using CFL it normally takes 1-2 weeks longer to finish than it says on the packet/site.

    Just checked this out!

    Nirvana Short Rider Autoflowering Feminised Seeds Specs
    Type: Indoor
    Height: Short - Mainly Indica
    Yield: 400-500 gms per Sq m
    Effect: Stoney
    Flowering: 8-9 weeks

    So theoreticly, the earliest they should be ready is 66 days. I have found that the info you get is pretty reliable, but like Dekay says you really need a microscope. Got mine on Fleabay for 20 quid, usb so goes straight onto pc screen, plus its fun for looking at bugs and things.

    thanks peeps i got a 30x jewlers loupe thats what i used to take the image of the trichs but i am absolutely sure that 51 days under a 250w HPS on 24/7 surely is to early, and they may gain more weight
    can anyone else help, by the trichs you mean the crystals on the bud and small leaf? looks like sugar when they start to go milky and amber its ready
