    How many weeks until ready?

    How many weeks until ready?
    I grow 12/12 from seed with 400W HPS.

      What do the trichomes look like under a 60/100 loop?

      From this vantage point, no (leaves have not started to turn). Nice plant though

        Looks like a great first grow. It's hard for anyone to give you this information regarding readiness. Some people prefer to take plant's at the beginning of the harvest window others like to leave it till mostly amber. It's all about what your body chemistry responds to, what you prefer.

        That been said I would say at least 2 weeks, look for the majority of hairs to have changed colour.

          Looks nowhere near done, at least 3 weeks

            Flowering time is 8 - 10 weeks according to their website.

            Sometimes you need an extra week or two though.
            I'm probably up to no good.

              ... but he is starting under 12/12, you have to consider the vegetative phase, no? I found that if one veges for 6-8 weeks (which I do) their numbers are pretty darn close. Buddy never told us how long his girl as been growing, so anything we say is pure speculation, unless he provides us with more data, to make an "educated guess"

                Generally speaking on indicas and hybrids you're look at a minimum of 9 weeks of 12/12 so subtract the number of weeks you've been growing from 9 weeks and you'll have a fair approximation of how much longer they'll need to go. Now mind you, this is just to get you into the ballpark strains vary from one to the next and even the same strain but from different breeders can vary. Once you get to about the last week or so then for a precise point to harvest that's when you want to pull out your magnifying device and start judging by how the trichomes look. Unfortunately what the trichomes should be for a perfect harvest comes down to personal preference and so nobody but you can determine that. Beginners though generally shoot for a 50/50 mix of amber/cloudy trichomes.

                  100% correct. There is a lot of controversy wrt growing at 12/12 from the start. I don't recall the entirety of the discussion but, suffice to say, it wasn't worth it, hence why I dismissed the technique.

                    You'll have to wait 'n see ...... it isn't 'done' until the trichs have turned cloudy with some amber.

                      12/12 method works fine for certain situations, it's the fastest way to get some smoke if no access to cuts, with high plant counts grown SOG can yield fine.

                      I think the controversy comes from the plants still needing to reach sexual maturity, with mature plants you can start the countdown from the flip, 12/12 you have to wait until preflower.

                      These days I prefer to grow trees, but would not hesitate to go this route again if the situation called for it

                        Am I correct to interpret, if he grows them IAW mfr specs, that being under 12/12 results in a reduced flowering period? For those limited to grow only 4 plants, this is simply not suitable for me.

                          I don't remember much details of past discussions of this technique but from what I saw the most viable candidate for that method was somebody working with very limited grow space and the idea being the stretch phase would bring the plant up to a reasonable height. Of course it would also be suitable for anyone who was so desperate to get weed they would be willing to sacrifice yield for speed. I don't recall seeing this discussed but it would also seem to only be practical when working with feminized seed only. I mean you could pull it off with regular seed but there would be a risk of it not meeting your goals if too many of the seedlings ended up being male.

                            ICmag is not my only source for info re: haven't seen a discussion.
