How do i tell when super skunk is ready to harvest. And how should buds be cut off so new buds will grow

Super Skunk is an 8-9 week strain. So after about 6-7 weeks of flowering, you’ll see the pistils start to turn red or orange, and the buds will swell. Around this time you’ll want to start looking at the trichomes with some sort of magnification, like a jewellers loupe or pocket microscope. Depending on the type of high you want, you’ll want more or less amber in the trichomes. They will go from clear, to cloudy, and then amber. If you’re looking for a more energetic, “head” high, you’ll want to harvest when there is mostly cloudy, possibly some amber. If you like more of a couch lock, more amber, possibly as much as 50%.

You should join the forum and tell us more about your setup. There are lots of friendly, helpful folks here that want to help you to grow the best possible. It sounds like you’re getting close. We can help you make it a success.

Do tricomes and pistols die

Is your response for auto-flower super skunk? Or photo-sensitive? I have feminized super skunk and it’s the first time I’ve grown photo-sensitive. It’s been just over 11 weeks since they germinated. I’m growing them inside. I’ve been looking at the trichomes and I see a few amber ones mostly on the very top. I keep waiting for more to turn. Help!
