View Full Version : No amber Trichomes?
02-22-2006, 02:37 PM
One of the strains I grow is Reeferman's Burmaberry (shishkaberry X Burmeese) and I, along with everybody who's smoked some has loved it. Smells great, looks great and has a great effect. I like to have weed around that is heady for the morning and couchy for the afternoon/eavening. One of the things I do to acheive this is to let some of my plants go a few weeks past harvest so I get a lot of amber trichomes.
I just tried my burmaberry that I let grow and additional 2 weeks past harvest. I did this to increase the number of amber trichomes. Funny thing is that even with 2 weeks more growth the ratio of clear:opaque:amber trichomes hasn't significantly changed. Must be a particular trait to my strain or my technique. Either way I'm a little bummed I can't easily manipulate the pharmacological characteristics of this strain like I can others.

I have an Ortega plant that never gets "amber". Trichs get cloudy then white, a few get yellow but not amber...It's the only time I've seen this.

another way to effect maturity and cannabinoid profile is to further reduce the hours of light for those last too weeks down to about 10/14.

I'll have t otry that at the end of next harvest! Thanks for the tip.

I agree with PF. I would also try, next time to cut back on the hours of light, near the end. This should help a lot.

not that i know as much as those that have already responded but thought id throw this on the heap... now i have grown out some sativas and some not overly worked first round crosses of sativas and i notice that some strains phenos(more of these phenos) would keep that sativa character of just growing for months without any hope of a golden trich. tell you i usually just dont care to push these type of plants deep into the color change as i like the sativas on the racy side and that earlier stone tends to make me hungry. anyway my thoughts are maybe some phenos particularly with sativa influence just dont need to turn all that much color to be rip.
as a further side note you maybe able to sway the genetics by giving the plants colder temps towards the end making the plants think they should hurry and mature before the winter frost sets in... haha if that fails maybe it will trun your plants a little purple and who doesnt like that?

I was begining to think I would not get a response, Thanks for responding.
Anyhow I do appriciate it ALOT:) I beleve that tonight is the night.:D .
The tri's are 1/2milky & 1/2 amber. I'll be sure to let you all know how it turns out after I get her cured up.
And thanks again,

i have this blueberry plant that started flowering by itself under a 1000watt MH light.it was a seed i got from a friend 6 or 8 years ago,out of ten she's the only one that made it.
it took like 5 weeks before i started seeing trichomes and yesterday i got myself one of those telescope or whatever to check them out the trichomes and it's weird i have the muchrooms of the trichomes but no hair under them .
the buds are really thick and long but it looks like shity weed.
one of my friends was telling me that the plant mit be very powerful anyways but i to wonder how the hell i can make more or make them develope more.
if am not making any sence it's ok am french and every thing is backwards hihihi.
intresting post therePharma,will help me to .

I've read somewhere that not all trichs appear like a mushroom. Some have very little of "stem". So the gal you have may still be a winner..
