Didn't see a topic about this, so here goes: Anyone flowered with MH only? On the internet one gets mixed opinions, some use it solely for whole grow time, vegging thru flowering, some say it produces less bud, some say buds are more dense, more trichomes, more trippy high, some say airier buds, but in the end the smoke is no different from HPS grown and so on.. Some saw no difference. Some mix MH and HPS during flowering, some swap to MH during last two weeks to max the trich production, some experiment with alternating the MH and HPS bulb every week or so... Any experience? I would prefer real life knowledge, if possible. Reason for asking is basically this: I have limited space height wise, so no extra stretch desired, also would love to see if MH makes it more firey. (Yeah silly me, it is really firey strain already, do I need more? YES!) I can use MH barebulb. Also as I have 2 Kolossus coming up nicely, they are massive yielders, well not perhaps with just 250W, but still so I though perhaps I lose some grams but get more potent bud, as I prefer to smoke less often stronger bud... Thanks guys.
Hello everyone, I just received a 30x jewlers loupe (not illuminated) I ordered today and It was hard to see anything under the HPS lights so I moved to underneath a soft white light and boy oh boy, I'm glad I ordered the magnifying glass but here is the issue, from what I can see there are alot of cloudy trichomes, here and there a ambertip, and there seems to be at least one FULL amber trichome here and there as well. I'd say it's 50% cloudy, 45% amber tip, and 5% full brown amber. Theres about 1-2 per leaf that are full amber all the way through, the rest on the leaf there are about 5-6 amber tip scattered about on the leaf and rest are cloudy. There could be more 30x is not that good to see as close as the pictures I have seen on here and elsewhere, I have to move the plant certain ways to see if there is a color to it but for the most part it's the percentages I've described. I am aware I want to not have full brown amber trichs (from bottom to tip) as this means the thc levels are past their peak and now degrading. I am also at 65 days of flowering, the lights are currently on, was I suppose to go ahead and chop or do I do that after the lights cut off for today? I'm working with New Blue Diesel and Anesthesia if it helps.
