If you look closely at the image above you’ll see lots of golden colored dots in the middle of the leaf. These are called trichomes, and they’re past their peak. Optimally, you want your trichomes to be clear, or a milky white, but never this color. It’s really too bad, as this plant looked awesome from a distance this morning. The strain is called Sour Grape, and I don’t know if that means there’s a Sour Diesel parent in the mix, but someone dropped the ball on this one. If a little point and shoot camera can pick up details like this, then whoever’s in charge of quality control should have had even better equipment with which to check the trichomes. It’s better to harvest just a little early if you’re not sure the flowering cycle is done. Now, this strain is going to produce a sleepy high with the possibility of a headache to follow. If you look at my post from earlier (not sure when, it’s down there somewhere), you’ll see a plant with optimal trichomes (it’s the one with the closeup inset as a circle in the photo).
