Does this super skunk look ready to harvest?

Hi guys, does this look ready for harvest, it’s only been flowering 6 weeks but most the pistils are dark!

The trichomes are what you want to judge your plant’s readiness to harvest. About 50% amber is what most are looking for. If you are a couch lock lover like me, I like about 80% amber. Makes me sleep like no medication I can try and I have used 5-6 different sleeping meds in the last three years and visited four sleep specialists. If you have Robert’s downloadable book (free) it will explain it more. Good Luck. Jerry

I think I see too many white pistils and so I’d say you have a week or maybe more, at least. And yes, check those trichomes.

Thanks guys, I have already ordered a digital microscope with wifi to look at the crystals but it is probably a couple of weeks away

I think you are aways to harvest, I would wait for the scope to come in to check. I like the couch lock too. Like TX lol. I do sleep a lot better if I wait till about 1/4 Amber tricombs rest are milky.

Only 6 weeks - more time - harvest when 80 of the “pistal’s” are amber/brown if you do not have a scope - If scope harvest when the trichomes color is cloudy/milky 100% as you can - this will get you the highest THC from your plant - Happy Harvest !!! Great looking plants !!! wish I was there for the harvest ( a cultivator’s X-mass)

yep few more weeks they look yummy tho

How are they looking now? I’d love to see updated pics

Will take pics tomorrow, digital microscope not arrived but I harvested the top half of plant and lowered light, and will give the rest another week and see if the lil buds in the middle grow a bit

Hi I am new here this is my first grow outdoors white skunk auto
Do they look ready to harvest I have read all the knowledge but cant decide if it looks ok

Looks mostly cloudy but no amber. For many this is the sweet spot. Depends how much couch lock U want in your smoke. This would b a daytime go get em time to harvest. Sleep meds I would let go a little longer.

Good luck U r very close

How much longer would you think? Sorry im newbie

No expert here by any means but would guess 4 weeks. Pistil are white need to be mostly brown or red then check trichomes for signs of amber. Welcome to the forum and you made it this far good job. Nice looking bud too.
