You have to look at trichomes to determine when to harvest. I promise you those are not ready
How did you take those pictures very close and clear. Also what are those very fine white hairs?Hi, just giving an update, although from what I've heard, it may not matter.
Apparently the person who's letting me use his greenhouse has said that he's turning off the heat Jan 1.
Thanks for all the notice! lol
Anyways, here are a few pics. As you can see with the last 2 that I put circles around, the leaves are doing some funky stuff now. In the last photo, the circled leaves are actually an even more pale then what the photo shows.
As I'm probably out of time anyways, it may not matter, but for the future, I'd like to hear peoples thoughts on the trichomes and the leaves.
Thanks again!View attachment 267590

Not being a wise guy, the plants will let you know.Thanks all.
I talked to the guy with the greenhouse and he's keeping the heat on. *phew*
Edit: I know you can't know for sure, especially since it's now winter and we're getting a LOT less light, but do you guys have any guess as to how much longer it will take based on the photos I've posted?
Do you have a pocket microscope or jewelers loupe to monitor the trichomes? While a general rule of thumb is to harvest when the trichomes are milky/cloudy, with 5% of the trichomes having turned amber in color, some people choose to harvest before any trichomes turn amber, and folks like Putembk like to harvest when the trichomes are 30% amber. Are you growing indica or sativa, and what type of effect are you looking for (cerebral vs. sedative)?Not being a wise guy, the plants will let you know.
