Answered: Pistils but no bud formation Hello, So this is my second plant as my first never grew past an inch tall. It was weird 1in tall for 2 months anyway, I started some seed back in mid October and they were veging great. Came back from Turkey Day and she was still so small and not much new growth except for more beginnings of flowers.
I panicked and went back to a week of veg 24 on and she shot to the stars and is now 4ft tall with lots of sub growth in the leaves and nodes with new branches growing. Stinks a bit in the mornings but otherwise i have pistils and no buds forming. I have 9 18w CFL full spectrum bulbs as well as 4 15" full spectrum tubes. Watering has been regular, same with temps.
The only thing I can think of is when its "night" for her, I am frequently home and doing work late into the night. During this i have 4 strings of Xmas lights that leak in a tad from the bottom of the closet and even less on the sides. I'll get some pictures up soon but any advice is appreciated.
Based On This Photo Of My Trichomes, Is My Plant Ready To Harvest?
Best Answer - Posted by Woody J. Those bulbs do not emit a great deal of light which is why your plant has stretched. To make things worse, as the plant grows, the distance from the bulb to leaf increases. Light deminishes over distance, so 1, lumens 1 foot from the light drops to lumens at 2ft. When flowering, it is recommended that a plant has a minimum of 5, lumens per sq ft of canopy space 3, in veg Your 9 x 18W bulbs will each emit around 60 lumens, giving you around plus whatever you have with the strip lights.
The bottom line is, you dont have anywhere near enough light to flower. Look to upgrade your lighting fella. Investing what you would spend with a dealer on your lighting will get you out of the dealers clutches.
Good luck fella. So forgot to mention that I'm growing in soil, Foxfarm Pacific something. Total Awards : 5. Hillbilly Guest. Do you know what strain it is?? I am thinking it's going to be a strain that takes a long time to finish. Total Awards : 7.For first time growers, the most anticipated point in the process of growing your own marijuana is the begin of flowering. This post is aimed at first-time growers who are eager to see their first results, and nervous as to whether everything is going the way it should!
White pistils turning brown prematurely.
The appearance of the fine, white pistils are the first recognizable sign that a marijuana plant has begun flowering — click on the image above to enlarge it and see the pistils in closer detail. If you are using standard seeds, please see the link below for our eBook on home growing — it is loaded with useful tips on how to maximize your harvest and produce the finest possible quality from your plants, and also goes into depth on identifying male vs.
Autoflowering plants can be expected to show their first pistils after a set period of time generally about 30 dayswhereas standard plants require a change in the light cycle to begin flowering. Once you shift your light cycle to flowering, you can generally expect to see pistils, as pictured above, within a week. At the begin of flowering, the calyxes are underdeveloped and often only visible if present at leaf nodes along the stem of the plant.
Trichomes are the part of the plant that contain THC, CBD, and the other cannabinoid compounds that we growers are aiming to harvest. It is worth noting that sampling immature buds eating, smoking, cooking, etc.
Not only do the immature buds not yet contain a significant quantity of useful compounds, but cutting into the maturing plant is a bad idea — you will cause the plant undue stress, hampering the growth process and potentially opening up the plant to attack from insect pests and molds.
That went fast — now we can get to the buds! This grower had consulted about 10 days before this, saying that the plants leaves appeared discolored and had dried spots on the edges of some leaves. Our guess is that the potting soil that they used — which contained fertilizer — had stressed the plant, and flowering kicked in even sooner than normal.

I am a first time grower and my plant is about 2 feet into growth now. Any luck bro? I have the same idea as you man, and am getting its maleits femaleand its getting me pissed!
Iknow its a female but yet people who grown says it could be male. Generally the only concern with male plants is that the pollen sacks will open and ruin a crop of females pollinate the young buds, and the energy goes into seeds rather than buds.

I started with a donated tent, lights, fans, seeds.
Got pre-flower pistols, but seem stuck there. Could they just be from being an old, not so stable seed yet, seeing as they are at least 6 years old, and that's when they were bought online, who knows how long they were before that. Since 2 budded to full bud, dried, smoke and others haven't, I assume maybe they're just not going to flower.Classifieds New classifieds.

The plant should start to show evidence of a small flower emerging in about 5 days. At 4 weeks it should have good size flowers going. Are you positive their are no light leaks?Why are my marijuana plant flowers turning brown 2 weeks in flowering
Is it totally dark. Anything more then a pinhole leak of light will effect flowering. I know theres no light leak cause all but this girl has budded. I have read today that some strains can go over a month and longer beffore you see a flower and can take up to and over 4 months to flower and finish.
Rudy said:. What is the temperature and rh in your room? Anytime I've seen this one of those things is off. Rudy I've grown equatorial landrace Sativas and yeah they can take up to a month or more to start flowering indoors and may take weeks to fully ripen but your plant does not look like an equatorial Sativa type, so I'm thinking that reloader is right on point If you are referring to masterscrogs 10 week White Widow thread,all I can say is that grow is a total disaster as far as flower production is concerned This is a good lesson to all; when things don't look right, go back through and verify everything.
Nutes, light leaks, bugs, everything Amen to this and a damn new tent on the way tired of the scrimping and guys your right if a person dont wanna do it right why ask dumb ass shit to the pros who have been playin the game for years. I knew something was messed up so finally I got in my damn closet myself and yes its big enough and to my surprise LIGHT LEAK oh well the good part of this I think is gonna be a damn monster plant,not what I had room for but Im gonna make roomand then post some pics of the whore.
Should be one of the first things you do when you flip, close the door behind you and check for leaks Rudy I'm glad you figured out the problem in your tent: Good luck! I am glad I did to I will see if I can geet some close ups ok Rudy I do see a couple of small primordial calyxes with pistils protruding, You should see the initial signs of flower initiation in a couple of weeks since you've fixed your light leak Good luck and keep us posted!

Use a magnifying glass to look at pistils, closely examine the trichomes, follow the seed labeling, look at the visual examples…. That is exactly why I decided to look for weed growing case studies and start-to-finish tutorials and see which harvesting signs expert growers like to use.
Pigeons is one of my favorite cannabis YouTubers, case closed. Just make sure not to harvest while the hairs on your buds are still white.
At this stage, the plant is still flowering and the majority of the pistils will appear straight. Once the hairs get darker and start curling up, you should be good to go. But be sure to check out the other signs as well, just to be safe. Once the plant is ready for harvesting, it will simply not consume as much water like in the stages before. The plant simply did its biological purpose: it produced ripe flowers that are ready for male seeds. Avoid: there are a lot of growers who tell you to go for majority amber, but in my opinion this is too late.
When the plant is ripe, the leaves will turn yellowish and start curling up and becoming dark and brittle. Very helpful, nicely summed up and straight to the point. Thanks for the great information! I have my first plant and I think it is about.In cannabis growingthe harvest is the time when growers are most excited about. This is the time of reaping the fruit of your labor in growing pot.
One of the best indicators that buds are ready to harvest is when they change their color, from white to reddish brown or orange. In growing cannabis, do the harvest earlier to obtain a cerebral high effect while smoking the marijuana buds.
The best thing to do for you to know that it is about time to harvest is to examine closely the marijuana buds. The signs that marijuana plants are ready for harvest to depend on the methods used in identifying the harvest time. When using this method, you can observe closely the pistils or the hairs of the plant.
If most of the pistils are still white while sticking out straight, it means that it is not yet the right time for harvesting, and you still have to wait for several months before the actual harvest time. Your plants are ready for harvesting when more than half of the pistils have already darkened. In some weed strains, you may notice some new pistils appearing at a time when you think that the harvest time is near.
Cannabis Flowering Stage
Keep in mind that this is just normal. However, if it happens over three times, then you have to decide whether to chop it off or not. There are also other strains which are harder to tell if they are already good for harvest. As a reminder, different stains may look differently right before the harvest. In fact, there are strains that still have white pistils even when they are all ready for harvest. Therefore, you can look into the details of your strain, or asking good information for a more experienced grower.
You may also want to check for pictures online in order to know how your plants actually look like when it is ready for harvest. Under the trichome method, what you are looking at is the glandular stalked trichomes that are seen on the buds using a magnifying glass.
These trichomes look like mushrooms growing on the plants. Others call these trichomes as resin glands. They are the crystal looking stuff that accumulates on the leaves and buds, and the ones responsible for making the plant sticky. Since the trichomes are generally what contributes to the potency of the bud, being able to exactly tell when they have already reached the peak levels of THC can help you in selecting the right time for harvest. Make sure that you do not harvest if the trichomes are still clear.
This means that they have not yet achieved enough potency. As such, harvesting at that point may even hurt the outcome of your yields. If you notice that the trichomes are cloudy or half clear, this means that the buds are still working in growing in size, and the odor of the strain has not yet completely developed.
On the other hand, if the trichomes have become cloudy, turning amber, it means that there is now slightly less THC since most of the pistils have converted to more CBN, giving any user the feeling of being relaxed. It also offers a narcotic high which can reduce your anxiety as you have your couchlock session. Regardless of the methods that you decide to use in determining whether or not your marijuana plants are now ready for harvest, there are common signs that you can look out for.
Here are some of them:. By choosing to harvest early at this point, there is a risk that you will only see a low yield, as well as non-potent harvests. This is when several, or most of the trichomes have now turned into a milky white or cloudy color but you have to use a magnifier for this.Forums New posts Search forums.
Can a plant be ripe and still have white pistils????????????? Thread starter rfun Start date May 14, This is my first grow. Both strains said flowering time. My blueberrys have been chopped about a week ago along with the smallest Agent Orange.
But it is now day 74 and the rest of the AO's look like they have another 2 or 3 weeks left. Is this possible? That the same strain can have some Plants ripe before others? And also on some of the plants all the side buds look ripe but the main colas still have white pistils, hence my question???????? I'm not complaining cause I have some massive buds that even I couldnt beleive I was getting on my first grow, but its driving me nuts that they are already 10 days past the suggested flowering time.
