First time grow unsure when to harvest

Hello all, I’m a first time grower, I’m 8 weeks in flower, and I’m concerned because I’m really not 100% sure what I’m looking for when it comes to harvesting, and when I should flush. I use hydroponics I have pictures, any feedback Would be much appreciated

All pistils should be brown. This will be the first indication of close to harvest.
A jewelers loupe will assist in trichome color. You want to shoot for milky trichomes.

My tricomes are more like the second one half cloudy

Thank you for your response. Do you think it’s to early to flush?

Each stage has a desirable trait. You can make an indica act more like a sativa if harvested early. Find what appeals to you and give it a try.

I don’t do much flushing. I rarely experience nute burn. But I do stop feeding through the last 2 weeks, water only.

Depends on what the overall plant looks like too.

The loose white hairs are what’s making me think I should wait but I’m confused because like I said the trichomes are pretty half an Half, I’m not sure if I should start to flush now or If I should wait.

As far as what? Like what other signs should I be looking for on the rest of the plant?

After the pistils start to recede the calyxes will swell significantly. I forgot to add that part.

That’s what all of us on here are for. We were all first time growers once. Ask away.
