    Now on my buds are all milky trichs... on the leaves some are starting to turn amber... I want a more heady high but I want to make sure I get the most bud possible.... there is no amber trichs on any buds on the cola... the buds are growing like crazy with new pistils every day... should I wait longer to harvest? most of the smaller buds are mostly darkened hairs, the top cola buds are about 50/50... some a little more than other... I want more bud but without sacrificing quality... should I wait until the trichs on the buds start turning amber then give them darkness for 2 days? any and all help appreciated. thanks! (Pictures posted soon)

    I know these pictures are a little deceiving ... my camera sucks... but there is a little more darkened hairs than it appears. This is the 9th week starting tomorrow I think. maybe I should give it to the end of the week? don't want it to start degrading too much. Thinking about chopping it down and starting my next project.... Glueberry OG.. (Blueberry x Gorilla Glue x OG Kush)

    for that kind of high you described I would Wait till they are 25% amber and 75% milky. I'd say by the end of the week or so. Then I'd boil them and leave under light for like 3 more days and you'll be happy

    what do you mean by boil? I will let them go for a bit longer hopefully they get a bit bigger.

    Run boiling water threw the soil... it kills the roots and gets your plant to start the process of curing while it is still on the plant. After 3 days chop and dry. The bud will be like it has already had a good cure in it. If that makes sense... bong hits of Malawi got me zoomed

    I found a couple threads on boiling...and read about 20 pages of it... But I already flushed my plants and then at the end with ph'd water... Will it hurt it to use boiling water too? Water is already coming out pretty clear so I know it's flushed really good
