I checked these 2 days ago for that milky look but didn’t think I saw anything, today there are some brown trichomes. Should I be harvesting? 2 plants have brown trichomes, 2 plants I’m not sure if they’re milky or not… using a magnifying glass isn’t helping much. The yellowing leaves is a problem I’ve had since turning to flower and haven’t been able to fix

I pulled these pics up a little closer but I’m not seeing any brown trichomes. Which plants have brown trichomes?

I’ve noticed (someone please check me up on this if I’m wrong; I’ve been growing now since May) that sugar leaves tend to amber up before buds. If you were looking at a sugar leaf when you saw the amber trichomes (which is easy to do on a dense bud with a loupe), then the buds may not necessarily have amber yet.

Personally, I’m starting to see that a heavy indica strain need not amber to get the body high like I like. I harvested my Afghan Auto a week or two before I’d like to and it’s trichomes were almost exclusively milky, and the high is almost entirely absent of “between the eyes” euphoria.
