Flowering and flushing.

 

So my two BT's that are flowering I've worked out are almost approaching day 80. Now these were incredibly slow starting because of the cold and they are only on their third week of flower. I was curious as to what you all thought about when I should start looking to flush and gauge a reasonable end date for the flowers. I don't think I should let it go the full 8 weeks or so plus 2 weeks flushing as that's a full 70 days from May 9th just seems a bit mad for an auto.

 

I dunno what do you guys think?

Rain

 

It's done nothing but rain for the past few days. I'm keeping most of my plants bar one as dry as I can but they are still taking in more water than I'd like. 

 

We we are not due some sun for another couple of days, this won't fuck up my crop too hard will it?

Flowering update

 

Smalls (black pot) has been flowering nicely and budding up fairly well. Biggie however is getting darker and Frostier but the buds don't seem to be getting much bigger. All the up close ones are of the more mature looking plant.

these are kicking out a serious pong! I always thought when manufacturers describe the smell to be kind of bollocks but these two smell so sweet and sugary it's unreal. Really sticky too!

Thanks man.

 

They hit day 80 today. Only on their 4th week of flower though. How long until I should chop do you think? I want to say at least another 4 weeks as a minimum then flush for 2.

I would say your spot on 4 weeks and they will be ripe.

I thought so. Do you think that's 4 inc the flush or 4 + 2 weeks for flushing? Just wondering for feeding purposes. Cheers for your help moobs!

Thanks!

 

The one in the brown pot is mostly dark trichs now but the buds are really small. Barely a bud! Lots of frost though. I might leave it a week to see how she develops and if there's no significant growth and she's getting darker, lop the bigger down and use it for some hash. I'd be amazed if I even pulled a Q from it tbh. 

 

The one in the black pot though is budding well with vast majority of trichs still white, they are the same age. 

 

What do you reckon?

if the trichs are dark/brown/amber i'd personally chop now mate..you want nice milky with some amber trichs..google trich chart or something similiar and it will give you a idea on what to look for mate ..i read these bt only take 8-10 weeks to finish so add a week or two on when doing outdoors,i'd say they're ready mate ..its upto you tho you could leave the less mature for bit longer and see how it goes i guess...still time to get some more autos on the go maybe take a look at dinafem,sweet seeds,dutch passion autos ..atb :)

There still a nice healthy green and will run a lot longer if you let them give two weeks more of nutes maybe even 3 then start the flush. If you can flush using molasses as it will keep your plant healthier during this time
