Hydroponic growers please answer my question and give as much advice as possible.

This is my second grow and just like the first I’m into the 18th week of flowering. My trichomes are still milky white. I am growing using a 600 watt HPS bulb. Also I’m using General Hydroponic nutrients. Furthermore, I’m using hydroton as my medium. My plants look great but the trichomes won’t turn amber yet. What is the cause and what should I do? What type nutrient are you using in your Hydroponic system?

Thanks, you are the second person to say that. They said it's called vine ripening. Therefore it's time for me to try it. At this point I don't know what else to do. Also, I just found out that General Hydroponics has a nutrient called Ripen. It's suppose to speed up the process.
