Hello I took some photos with lens. Can you tell me if I’m close pleeeeeze??
The resolution is kind of iffy(can’t really see the trichomes that well) but it looks like you should wait s week or 2 to me if you can(and you will be glad you did). The last couple weeks are when the buds plump up a lot.
Hi Connie, if I may offer some advice, you have 4 threads going on the same grow and this question is the same as one you posted a couple days ago and so the answer is unchanged. Oldfogey is actually telling you exactly what we told you on the last one. It's much easier to help you if you post new questions on the same subject about the same plants in the same thread, instead of starting a new one, so everyone can see your progress in the same space! Take a look at how grow logs are set up. It's a great way to track your progress! : )
Still looks good. Still 2-3 weeks out.
Thank you. Will do!
From a link I'll post " Yellow leafs – For autoflowering plants maybe the best sign of when your cannabis is ready for harvest is yellowing of leafs as autoflower trichomes usually don’t change color as fast as it is with photo-sensitive plants. When your plants larger fan leafs are starting to yellow then you can start flushing your plants but when the larger leafs start to fall down by themselves then it is probably time to cut your lady down. But be careful with fertilizers because if you give your plants too much nitrogen in the flowering phase then this leaf yellowing will not happen as fast as you would like and you can miss that peak harvest time."
above info found at this link: https://www.autoflowering-cannabis.com/when-to-harvest-autoflowers-harvest-guide/
Hope this helps....
While there is some good info in your link, leaves can yellow for a number of reasons that have nothing at all to do with readiness. The same goes for the pistils turning brown. And the same goes for the smaller leaves drying out. Too little nutrients, wrong pH, wrong nutrients, too much water, too little water, too high temps, etc can cause the symptoms the author mentioned, even when the plant is not close to done. So maybe on a plant that has been taken care of flawlessly can you count on these ripeness indicators, but for most of us, I think checking the trichomes is still the best way.
Thank you so much everyone this is my first time posting and growing. I’ll be sure to create a grow log on my next grow soon. Sorry for the confusion. New pics from today
I would still wait if the weather is going to cooperate. Looks like the trichomes are cloudy. The buds will fatten up a fair amount. The calyxes will swell too.
Weather is upper 80s here in sunny Southern California. No amber yet. Today’s pics
Should I stop nutes now??
I’m getting nervous And excited . Today’s photos
Sparkly! Sounds like you're in an area where frost, rain, and humidity aren't pressuring you, so take your time and consider yourself lucky to have that option! Wait for the amber to overtake the cloudiness in about half the crystals. If you harvest too early, you'll just short yourself on finished weight plus the high/crash of unripe bud leaves a lot to be desired
Thank you so much!!!
Just curious what you have planned for them after the cut?
My daughter has a rare disorder (gastroparesis) marijuana is the only reason she isn’t eating from a tube. I am trying to grow for her and save the large amount we spend on weed at the dispensary
Sorr6 to hear about your daughter, I guess I meant how are you planning to process the plants after...dry and cure and such...are you going to use it as an edible?
Oh hahahaha dry and cure. And I’ll take any suggestions
New photos today. Ther are some new white hairs growing what is that about?
