Late stages of auto flower

I’m growing critical x ak-47 auto flower. It’s supposed to be a 6-8 week seed but it’s day 60 and still think they have a few more weeks. I read some of the reviews for the seed and says they had massive buds at day 70. I don’t seem to have any buds just pistils. some of the pistils are turning amber and some of the leaf tips are turning yellow. Is this normal and I’m supposed to be seeing buds come soon?

@They have lots of swelling to do it looks like, they’re very frosty though! Looks like they’re cycling through their excess nutrients in their leaves :smiley:

Anybody know how much longer these girls have till they can harvest? Also the yellow tip leaves are getting worse

It’s funny how we all get right at the end. Each day towards the end, I’m like, “How about now?”

I don’t see any hints of amber yet, do you?

@kmac03 @Corey I see a few starting to turn amber and most are milky white. Still a few clear ones. You’re really close. Just a few more days to a week.

@MDBuds @kmac03 I was just wondering bc there’s a lot of amber pistils now and the trichomes are mainly milky but the buds aren’t really dense at all. I was thinking I was gonna harvest around December 2 but I don’t think the buds will be big enough by then.

Corey,

Please forgive me for this as I just smoked, but a lot of times we as humans think something isn’t going to turn out the way we want it to so WE make a decision. It’s hard to sit and wait a few days, trust me, I know. I’ve pulled the trigger more than once when I shouldn’t have and then watched as others had their plants fatten up when I had already harvested mine and we planted all at the same time.

If others like @MDBuds are telling you to sit tight, it’s probably best to listen. A lot can happen in a couple of days with plants, you already know this or you wouldn’t have gotten this far. It’s more a lesson for us in patience than anything else. We like to think we are God.

Remember this when I’m doing the same thing towards the end of December. Please come back to remind me.

@kmac03 thanks for the advice. This is my first grow and haven’t really seen buds grow before so don’t really know how it happens. I kinda thought the buds grew and then trichomes start to appear and then the buds grew but I was wrong. I’m willing to wait I was even thinking about waiting till most of the trichomes are amber bc I think I like more of a body high or couch lock any way.

Post your pics when you are about to harvest and after. I’m interested to see how it goes. They are beautiful. Looks like you’ve got the touch.
