This is my first grow. I used autoflower seeds (Bubble Gum, Jack Herer, and OG Kush). Do these look ready to harvest? The plants sprouted about 9 weeks ago and have been flowering for about 5 weeks.
All those white hairs are telling you that you’ve got a while to go, You got a few weeks.
Ideally having a magnifying glass or jewelers loupe to view the crystals is how I tell on my flowers but I agree 100% with Hellraiser on this one, too many white pistils they got aways yet. Good news is the buds will swell more along the way!
Thanks. That’s what I thought but wasn’t sure. I’m really happy with the results. I basically treat them like tomatoes except I switched up to organic bloom feeder once they started flowering.
You should be basing your harvest on the trichomes not the hairs. If you get a loupe or even a magnify app on a cell phone, examine the trichomes in the bud not the leafy bits. Once there are some amber colored ones you are real close. More amber is more ripe, and obviously less is well less. More amber seems to be more body and less seems to be more head and energy?
I would say a bit longer. Looks like say 40% of those hairs are red. Not much longer IMO. Although I have no real experience in low ryders or autos. Id expect some more swelling but thats photoperiod eye lol
