I’m not very experienced either but I’ve done one grow and I see the leaves starting to Yellow that’s one Telltale sign that it’s ready but I don’t see any foxtails do a little research to find out what foxtails are if you don’t know
in the second pic, one of the sugar leaves has black spots on it (near the finger nail). I would remove anything that looks like that. Those spots look a bit like mold. I hope not but you need to check them out quickly. I would still remove anything that looks like that they have no value. @nin
Sorry for the late reply… so I decided to wait a while to see a little amber in the trichomes before harvest. But I couldn’t help myself, I harvested 3 buds just to try. They dried beautifully.
As for the mold, I literally sat there cleaning up each stem that had any sign of black mold and I wiped it off with water and a small towel. I cut off all the leaves with black spots. There weren’t many anyway.
I think this happened because one side of the plant is growing right next to a big shrub so maybe the contact wasn’t good.
I would also try with a tiny bit of peroxide… I found it to be the most efficient killing black mold I found in my shower, but please confirm with others on this forum or an expert to make sure it is safe for the plant! I hope that helps! Walmart sells the peroxide spray bottle for 1.25 which is the best value!
