trichomes and how they develop ?

Recommended Posts

hi everyone

sorry if this should have been posted somewhere else but i really could not find another area for this.

i just want to understand how trichomes work and develop.

i am currently on week 7 day 4 of flowering and have some clear trichs, some cloudy and very few amber.

from what i have read is that amber trichs should not appear until all the cloudy ones have?

this is not a problem or issue i would just like to know if im checking them wrong or if my eye sight may not be what i thought it was lol.

not usually amber trichomes will start to appear even with a few trichomes clear left. it means that the plant is starting to mature, so if you want a u^plifting high you want to start thinking about cutting soon, if you want a little more couchlock you can wait until more amber appear, also don't check the old trichomes ons fan leaves that have been here for a long tim, check in the middle of the buds and at many places to have a general idea, we have a thread about trihomes on the forum somewhere on't remember where exactly ^^

Good luck man

the hair like thrichomes are called cystolith thrichomes there job is to protect the plant from insects and animals making it less desirable to eat, wide range of plants have adapted them as defence hops, tomatos, chilis, figs the list is endless the nettle sting is also caused by the cystolith hairs

there are 3 types of glandular thrichomes on cannabis that has all the cannabinoids and terpenes we all like, many plants also have these types, like the hairs
