First real harvest , a few more weeks?

The following pictures are from a bubble bucket Durban Poison sugar leaf near top of bud. I know a bud shot is better but didn’t want to cut to put under scope. I can’t get the scope to the plant. 1st shot is near leaf stem and it looks like there is some amber on the veins but the second shot is at the tip and shows a little cloudy. I’m thinking finish this week with full nutes , 1 week minimal (seedling) nutes then 1 week water. But I will leave it to consensus.

Are the tri colors on the leaf the same as the flower?
Probably doesnt make a difference but Ill tag some who will know for sure. @ThcinKC @dbrn32 @repins12 @blackthumbbetty

A bud shot is better because the trichs on leaves will usually ripen faster than on the buds. Since you’ll be using the buds, that’s what you want to go by.

What I di to test is go to the bottom for a small popcorn bud. I actually smoke my sugar leaves.

My main focus is about the middle since the top generally finish faster. Sugar leaves won’t show what you need since they finish so fast.

Maybe. Sometimes they turn really fast, others not so much.

3 or 4 weeks should be at 10% Amber tricomes
Now would be the time to spike the stalks and start ice baths

Sorry for chiming in but I was wondering how you took those pics of your buds? Also what is the ice water for, I’m new to all this and have lot’s of questions

tchop.
No worries.
The pictures are from a USB microscope I got from Amazon.
I’d add a link and a pic but I can’t get anything to upload atm.

Ice is rumored to help flush the plant and boost the THC from “WInter is coming” stress in the plant.
