What week of flowering do hairs turn orange?
It isn’t until weeks 7-10 where you will notice a substantial number of orange, red, or yellow hairs. Both female and hermaphroditic plants display pistils and stigmas. ‘Hermies’ also produce pollen and threaten your female plants.

If they still don’t change color, you should harvest before the quality of the bud declines. Once 90%+ of pistils have darkened, and the trichomes are part amber, part cloudy, your plant is past peak potency.
How long do you want to keep the lights on for flowering each day?
Plant breeders are constantly trying to extend their season by breeding out long day/short day requirements.

For long day plants 13 to 18 hours per day is recommended.

How to low stress train a Kush plant?
If you don’t want to risk it, you can start low stress training your plants by tying down the branches, or growing in a SoG or Scrog so the light can reach all of the branches (and future flowering sites) equally.
