Question Amber Trichomes

I'm on my second crop for the year. I'm growing "Chem dawg". If you go by the flowering time suggested by the seed co. they say 8-10weeks. I googled the same question and got several different flowering times but one said 3 months. I'm in day 85 of the plants and only see traces of amber trichomes. Should I keep letting them age until I see more ambers or should I cut the plant down at 90 days. It seems like a pretty long time for flowering.

What percentage of amber do you see? You should be ready for harvest,,,but the Triches will never lie. If you have alot of cloudy triches with some amber i would take them down,,,but to each his own.
You just dont want alot of clear triches,,,you want cloudy going to amber throughout.

Where did you harvest it last time. Did it do what want. Did you think it could be better. But what Hopper said is a Good Rule to go by the First time.

Also something to remember is if you had any kind of issues with the plants during flower, that can affect how, when, and if it finishes correctly. Issues during flower cause the plant to pause its flowering function, and this can delay a harvest for 1 to several weeks. Also make sure you are looking at the trichomes under full spectrum light like sunlight. I have been fooled by the grow light spectrum before.
