Very hard for us to say how much longer if you're posting pics from the beginning of September. 8-10 weeks / early October is what ACE says so maybe in a couple of weeks will be good.Hi all,
Hope you all are doing well.
This year I took the chance of growing an Orient express. I am not sure if the smell of It but is some kind of earthy smell but nothing I can compare with other strains or smells.
I think It has been in flowering for the last 6 to 7 weeks but I am not sure how long more It might need till being harvested. In my opinion It is about two to three weeks to finish, but not sure on how yo harvest this strains. Not sure if It is more china or Vietnam but would say It is un the middle. Not too wide not too lanki. As said, the smell is not something I am able to describe but probably earth and ferments.
Here some pictures from the begining of september.

I would like to add that this is not the first time I Grow a plant but I have always tought I dont usually wait enough for them and take them too early (un a normal harvest I would wait one to two weeks more) and this year I would like to know when It is ready. Have a microscope but I never got to see any cloudy trich but amber and transparente, so not able to harvest bases on that. Would you say It is more than two weeks to go?
Thanks in advance
Probably I haven't explined myself well. What I meant is that there are pics from begining of september and later un the post I hace added the ones I took 4 days ago. The pics from early september is to show they were about two weeks into flowering by that time.Very hard for us to say how much longer if you're posting pics from the beginning of September. 8-10 weeks / early October is what ACE says so maybe in a couple of weeks will be good.
Never seen cloudy trichs? That's strange. Or maybe not, it is inline with not waiting long enough. Look at the buds don't let amber on some leaves fool you.
Oh sorry missed the 4 days ago text.Probably I haven't explined myself well. What I meant is that there are pics from begining of september and later un the post I hace added the ones I took 4 days ago. The pics from early september is to show they were about two weeks into flowering by that time.
Regarding trichs, I wasnt able to see them in buds in past grows. It might have to do with me not waiting enough to harvest. Always facing the fear of SB jumping on my yard and taking the plants. Never before I got to harvest Nepal Jam but did harvest others and never got to see milky trichs at buds. Some times found some golden ones and rest of them seemed transparent. Probably not waiting enough. This year I wasnt to wait till they are ready.
Well usually not too long after the buds seem to be mature. Filled out bracts, no white pistils...Hi all, spetially @goingrey.
I have been checking the trichs during last week and this weekend and they doesnt seem getting amber. I would say all of them are still clear transparent. On your experience (of you all), how long would you say does it usually take them to get amber after flowers seem to be mature?
Thanks un advance.
