How long for trichomes to go from milky to amber?
Just so, how long does it take for trichomes to change color?
In my experience trichomes have never changed in the same time period. But generally speaking, indicas tend to go milky and then amber pretty fast, in 5-10 days having a 30/70 milky/amber mix while sativas slowly go to milky and even slower to amber, so that in 10-15 days to have a 70/30 milky/amber mix.
Also, what percentage of trichomes are amber? 70 percent
Also asked, what color should trichomes be before harvest?
TRICHOMES (BEST): The head of a trichome starts filled with clear liquid. Over time it turns milky white and then amber. When most trichomes are milky-white and a few are amber, the plant is ready to harvest.
Will trichomes turn amber after harvest?
The short answer is YES, trichomes ripen further after the chop. The long answer is a bit more complicated. Check this out, it may help. I don't think the process is so fast that you'll have all amber trichs within a month after harvesting at 80/20 or even 50/50 clear to amber trichs.
