Harvesting my plants

    • List item








Could you please tell me if I am ready for harvesting? I am a beginner and feel that I’m very close to harvesting but do not know for sure. Maybe in another week? I do not know what kind of seeds I planted as they were from two years ago. I cannot find how to post except through this. Attached are some pictures please help.

You need to plan on 3 weeks min. They will swell a lot in that time.

You’ve still got time. 2 to 3 weeks I’d say.

Thank you!

Welcome. You did great to get photos uploaded too. The pistils will tell you when you are getting close. They turn brown / orange and kind of withdraw into the calyx. To give you an idea, this is an AK-47 a week before harvest.


In the meanwhile, suggest picking up a jewelers loupe to be able the check on the trichomes. Ultimately they will tell you it is time. I prefer using a USB scope. I have a hard time holding a loupe steady and close enough to get a really good look.

Thank you! What is a jewellers loupe if you don’t mind me asking?

If you want to reply to me directly use @beardless. I will be notified you replied to me. Another to contact directly is by using the quote feature. I used the quote when I first responded to your post. When you use the quote it gives your name and what ever text I highlighted.

Now you asked me a question about a jewelers loupe.
So when I respond I will highlight the text of your question. A quote bubble will appear. Click on the quote bubble and the response will contain your name and the highlighted text

Here is an example of one.

ILGM has some type of agreement with amazon so we can copy paste product links. Virtually all other direct links are prohibited.
This is a jewelers loupe. The large viewer is 30x and the small one is 60x. They do OK for a quick look to see how the trichomes look overall.

I should add this.
