I’m in week 16 since germination. Any thoughts on whether I’m close to harvesting? These are white widow autos. Thanks in advance for any advice.
First pic looks more advanced than others. Same plant? Other two pics, looks like you still have lots of white pistils.
If you have some sort of magnification, check the trichomes for cloudy and amber hues.
This may help:
Thanks @PP3121 . I should have clarified that these are three different plants. Appreciate the insight.
Looks like has a week or more left.
Thanks @Covertgrower . Appreciate it.
Here’s an updated photo of the most advanced plant. Think this one may be ready to harvest? Thanks in advance for any advice.
Hello @JohnG. It is hard to see the trichomes. Where you able to get some sort of magnification device? A jeweler’s loupe is important to see the trichomes. Do you see any amber ones? Mostly cloudy?
I think the brown pistils will dry up some more and get sucked into the bud. Again, depends on what effect you are looking to achieve. You could harvest now and compare to others.
Thanks a lot, @PP3121 . Based on the magnificAtion it looks like I should hold off for now. Thanks again for your advice.
Are your trichomes clear still?
It took a while for mine to start changing. I was getting worried that the hairs were almost all brown but still clear trichomes. Well, they did change to cloudy and even saw some amber ones. Harvested this morning early! Hanging and drying now! My first grow! Still a few more weeks though.
Just keep monitoring; you will see them change.
