Question Is it time to harvest?

Hi there!

Yep...after a rich "plateau" of mistakes, after my girls went through an underwatering resistance game, nutes burn, light burn, improper training, amusing Gnats & God only knows what I'm leaving out...it's approaching harvest time!

The tough question at this point is...how the heck am I supposed to guess when it's the best time to harvest?

Well, I did some research and apparently few clear trichomes, most of them milky and amber pistils would be the all-in-one recipe that tells me harvest time is here.

From theory to practice things are not tremendously obvious, therefore I'm here to ask you if what I see corresponds or not to the description above (and nonetheless IF the description above actually IS correct and indicates the best time to harvest the buds).

Armed with a digital scope (Plugable 250x Digital Scope, nothing fancy, if wondering) I took 2 specimens: one from a lower site bud, the second one from one of the main colas.

Here the pics, feel free to shower opinions do's & don't and whatever you like to add to the cake!

Here we go:

Pic#1 Lower Bud Site:


Pic#2 Other lower bud site:


Pic#3 Main colas bud site:


Pic#4 Main colas bud site:


Pic#5 Same Pic as #4 but different lightning:


Thanks for sharing your master,
WW

At a minimum, when all trikes are cloudy. You still have many clr ones.

I would agree to what I'm back said. Still too many clear ones.
Wait for more milky overall and at that time you'll most likely also have some already going amber which is the sign it's at the end of it's life cycle and time to harvest the ladies.

Many thanks!
In your experience (question open to anyone) how much longer should it take?

I'm not in a hurry but I wonder when to begin the H2Only for the flush...

Thanks!

Now that's the M $ question. It is all plant dependent (strain) how quick they finish. Use the breeder's info to ball park them and go from there.

Best guesstimation, 2+ weeks. You can start with water only. Most mediums have enough reserve....you'll be diluting any nutrient build up.

Nice shots as agent said!!

At Last!!!
I do understand that plants aren't math or engineer... but what I was after is just a simple "educated guess" from experienced growers! Thanks for the compliments but I didn't do much really, I just mouse-clicked, the rest was the Scope's "piece".

Now I got it! I'm giggling happily! He he!

For the record, I was sooo stoned (stoned-born, no need for "extras", I wish I did tough! Had an excuse, ha!) that I messed up the plants and I'm not 100% positive about which DOB is which. They are 5 days apart...but considering these 5 days tolerance, this should be the 9th week and by the book (the seed bank strain-description) they should be ready in 9-10 weeks from sprouting.

My harvest window is pretty much 'whenever i feel like it' these days

I used to get impatient and harvest a little early sometimes and then i overdid it and became a bit of a 'i know i should harvest now but i'll give it another day' which turned into another day and another day.

Eventually it just became when i'm satisfied with the look and smell- i chop.
