    You ever notice how most Ford vehicle names are more fun when you put "anal" in front of them? Probe, Explorer, Excursion, Endeavor, Ranger, Focus...

    just had a bowl of black tuna. After a long strech of using a vape, the feeling of resiny lips is a deja vu.

She' slooking good man, you should get you miroscope so you can see the tric's. They are the best way to tell if she's ready to be deflowered. Harvet for a up high with 10-20% amber or for more coutch lock type stone harvest with 50% or so amber. They mature as such, clear-cloudy-amber.

The second pic that Abby posted is the absolute perfect time for harvest. The trichomes are ALL cloudy, or milky and swollen.
If a heavier body stone is preferred they could go another week, tops.

The first pic is of the trichomes on a sweetleaf, showing a lot of amber, but no cloudy/milky trichomes at all. And much smaller, not swollen at all.
It is possible that these are on a sativa dominant plant and near finished, but more likely a hybrid that is about two weeks from finish, on a flower low down on the plant.
It is not uncommon for people to harvest the plant when it is at this stage, but they are cheating themselves.

Correct me if I am wrong, but I was under the impression that when a bud is fertilized the hairs will turn organge. Is is possible that your girl was pollenated?

As far as being ready, look for all cloudy for a cerebral high, cloudy and a touch of amber for more of a body stone.

Good luck!

No, the hairs (pistils) don't turn orange when a plant is fertilized/pollinated... The hairs turn orange because they are old and dying (maturing). When a plant is pollinated, the pollen will actually land on the 'hair' and then the hair will retract, pulling itself (and the pollen) back inside of the calyx(the pod that the hair protrudes from). That calyx will then begin seed production, and will eventually become a BEANER!

Sorry, but no.
The stigma dies off within hours of pollenation, withers and falls off. You can watch it turn brown if your patient.

In some strains the stigmas turn orange/tan, to brown on a regular basis. Then grow new ones.
With practice you can tell the difference between a stigma that is simply losing it's vigor and shrinking up a little, and one that is dieing off from either pollenation or the plant giving up and finishing.



That last Farqpic is amazing. You can actually differentiate the basal cells and the stipe cells in the stalk, see the basal cells running up the center.



And in the Gland (the mushroom like globe on top of the stalk), you can make out the disc cells on the bottom of gland inside.

See what comes from using a tripod?
