Hey marty, you could get an idea by quick drying some buds,now, but i advise you to wait at least a couple more weeks, or until there are between 70and80% brown hairs. More if u wanna get really stoned.

If u are patient enough, they will get fatter and more potent. If u wanna quick dry maybe u won't stop at one single bud, thus stressing the plant and yielding less. I've been through that and i regret it. Patience is virtue %3cink

Peace!

70-80% brown colored hairs from all of them (the entire plant).

%3cmile Well, u have many options. 2 of them: you can hang it at a safe distance from the stove fire ( so it wouldn't burn your hand after keeping it half a min. above) or put it on the radiator. That's only if you're in a hurry. It ruins the taste and the thc but it will have some effect. If you're patient for about 3 or 4 days (maybe less), cut a small bud, keep it in a dark, well ventilated (not straight on it), non humid environment.

You've been growing the exact same plants from 17th sep. 2010?? That's a reallly long time. Post some pics if u can. I'm curious what giants u have.

These plants ive 5 of them were planted in a ready mixed soil on the advice of a friend, because it was my first grow i wanted to make it handy for myself (bad idea) it was a jhon innes no 3 soil and the soil was not suitable it was only when i got some pics up on here you guys put me stright i was slowly chocking the plants so i got my act together regarding soil mixs and replanted on dec 30th 2010 & to my suprize they took of greatly bar one. so i then left them in veg for another month & then put to flower there doing realy well i think.... ill post some pics later i also have 2 babys coming along a white skunk & a ak47 they are now 6 weeks old in veg and not looking to big ill throw some pic of them aswell

quick dry a true taste???sorry wrong. never get a true taste by a quick dry.
read your trichs not the hairs. lots of issues can cause them to turn but the true reading is the trichs as thats where the cannabinoids are, not on the hairs. amber knotting hairs can be a sign but the true way is trichs
growing since sept, must be huge by now with the long veg

none of the plants are ready yet mate, and i wouldn't pick a bud off any of them.
1st pics is a good few weeks off, second looks more ripe, but i think she need a few more weeks as well.

White skunk? 6 weeks of veg.? It looks pretty small for that time and ruderalis-like. No side branches... It doesn't look like worth keeping. Is it a second or third generation seed plant, by any chance? I tried it out once and it grew straight up, no high either.

The one in the 5th pic looks best. If you're that anxious u can try it out, but i agree with mellowchris. It looks like it needs at least 3 more weeks of flowering.
