Hello! I`m new in this forums and also this is my first harvest ever.

 
The seed bank (https://www.royalque...-flowering.html) says that it lasts 7 weeks, it is already beginning its eight week of flowering. It has exceed nutes but is recently fixed (I think that the pistils got "burned" because of the exceed nutes)
 
600W HPS
Soil Medium with Canna Nutrients
 
 
Trichomes (Taken from the highest bud in altitude)

Hello FirstGrow, All seems well with the plant you photographed.  I don't think you've burnt the pistils, they are just turning brown/orange because they're maturing.  As for the breeders time scale for flowering, they always play down the flowering period,  you can safely expect to be at least two weeks more than their flowering time.   Another couple of weeks looks about right for them judging by the trichomes.

Thats a good result for first grow well done :) Get yourself a magnifier cheap on ebay or local if ye have them,will help with checking the trichs look for all milky,will start out clear and will turn like the have smoke inside the trich head(this is milky) or leave a bit longer for round 10% amber if you want a more sedate result.They do look milky already but that could be the light in the room making it look that way,up close looking is good.

 

Ive only ever had one royal queen strain and really liked it(honey cream) yours sounds nice too, @ZenArcher has given sound advice.

 

all the best with harvest hope it turns out good :)

it's a matter of personal taste, she looks close to ready for my tastes

 

when as much of her as possible has trichomes that look like this, is what I would aim for:

 

Attached File  closeupcircle.png   726.79KB   2 downloads

 

that is from the photo you posted above, so you are close, but obviously it is a constantly shifting scenario with your clear trichomes becoming the cloudy you see here in the close up, and the cloudy turning amber orange like a traffic light. So for my personal tastes the idea is to catch it at the point where most of them are the deep cloudy but not yet amber. This is the height of THC production and amber trichomes is an indicator of degradation of THC into other compounds, primarily CBN, which apparently gives the more sedative effects... That is not to diss anyone who likes their smoke very amber, but is simply how it works in real life and chemistry as far as I understand it

 

I find most weed is stoney enough as to inhibit productivity without trying to make it more so LOL I like to smoke all day, but I also like to get some things done while I do that, and that means physical work usually, gardening and stuff. So functionality is a part of it and THC is what I am after really in terms of a soaring but functional high

 

if it is your first harvest you may find some benefit in taking some when it is cloudy and leaving a couple of buds to go into amber territory and you can see what you like yourself, rather than taking my word for it

 

enjoy the fruits of your labour anyway dude

I completely agree from my own observations that there is definitely some small amount of progress in the trichs during the first few days as they hang dry @Enzyme303

When did you start counting from?

Typically, 'flowering' doesn't really start until ten-days to two-weeks after switching the lights to 12/12.

Thanks to all!

 

I`m gonna keep checking, i already have a magnifier so i might look closely to that part and get a real idea on when.

 

@Anonymiss Light switch was on 3 of December, first flower came literally the day after the switch.

 

 

So i should cut when i see all milky? Right? and i can cut like one part them leave the other plant (Doesnt that stress the fuck of the plant(hermies?)).

 

Shall i check the trics every day? or every 3 days is fine?

 

Sorry just fucking noob about the topic (even when reading on previous posts/forums im not clear).

 

This one is her sister Royal Cookies (Just showing i think i can handle this one, too early atm):

If you wanted you could take the top third of the plant off when your happy that the trichromes are at the stage you want I.e. milky or milky and amber. Then leave the lower 2 thirds of the plant another week to ripen more with no fear of hermie danger because there would no be enough time to do any damage in 7 days ( grow male parts that are mature enough to polinate itself and then grow any seeds )

Every 3days should be fine when your checking the trichrome maturity

That plant pic is gorgeous
