My last auto grow was frustrating beyond belief….the 3 plants were a month + beyond the breeder estimate, they kept producing white pistils and there were almost no amber trichs.
I believe my actions caused much of it though. I stressed the plants, handled them too much, defoliated too aggressively (and too late) and altered the light cycle several times thinking it might help them finish.
In your case, from the looks of the one cola, you’re pretty close but not quite there. If the plant is happy and getting what it needs, it should finish out in textbook fashion….meaning the pistils will turn and recede, there won’t be another wave of them, and your trichs will gradually change to more ambers and less clears with most being milky
I used to be a firm believer in only harvesting when every single white pistil had turned and receded. I’ve since changed my stance and would consider chopping a plant if it had very few whites, had went through the swelling stage and was clearly ripe otherwise. I think for some reason certain strains will continue to kick off random pistils forever…..
Good luck and the bud looks great by the way.
