    Default Unanswered: Trichomes

    Hey up dudes.
    Question is a simple one really. When trichomes go Amber and we want to harvest. Is this the same for purple strains that turn purple instead?
    I've noticed a fair few trichomes with purple head rather than Amber. Also not much cloudy going on and a also a few Amber's on the sugar leaves.
    Breeder says 8-9 weeks flower time. I'm starting week 8 today and I'm not seeing the trichomes doing there normal thing. Still got plenty of white pistils shooting out so a couple of weeks to go at least I think.

    I was told to just ignore the purple ones.
    My last harvest I had 2 purple ish phenos. Lots of purple. But there were still some amber trichomes

    They look like a bunch of grapes! And I can’t fault the picture if that’s a shaking hands picture. Then mine must look like I’m holding onto a jackhammer at the same time .. anyone got the answer yet i would just go with the amber on the others and see if the purple just got either more intense or cloudy looking but that jmo and I’m rather dull

    Beautiful stuff Wags it looks like it’s going to be a very interesting flavour and head full of fun at the end. As for the clip on loop you gotta love how they just come up with things that we can put to such excellent use. I wish you 100% success in getting the best out of the purple princess

    My total pleasure if i had the power everyone that had the spirit to grow the fine lady’s would always have 100% success. Apart from the ones that just do it for nothing more than to profit by turning out shit and then taking the piss by charging the more incapable people of this world crazy prices just too profit from others! A fair price for a quality product that’s fine but them that turn out shit and then take advantage nah they can get fecked but that’s JMO
