You’ll want to inspect the buds more so than leaves. And the pic of entire plant you posted is difficult to see well with light and shadow. But I think there’s still a lot of white pistils.

Looks like it will need more time just looking at the pistils (hairs) there’s still alot of straight ones, as the buds ripen those pistils will mostly be dark and curled up close to the bud. Then when looking at your trichomes make sure you are looking at bud and not leaves because leaves are liars :laughing: but really the trichomes on the leaves will turn amber sooner than the ones on the bud, my way when looking at the trichomes is to follow the pistils down this guarantees it’s bud because leaves don’t have pistils. Here’s a good reference picture of what you are looking for but the % of ambers is a personal preference the more amber the more body/couchlock

Yep, probably 2-3 more weeks. It should bulk up some more during that time

From what I see you still have a few weeks to go. Don’t pull early or you will be disappointed. Been there done that when I first started. :+1:

Still a few weeks to go. Lots of white pistils left. What about ¾ have turned red and receded back into the flowers, start checking trichomes. Good luck and happy growing!

Very few white hairs. That’s good. If your trichomes are all cloudy, then you’re in the window. I’d wait about just a couple more days and check them again. The more amber trichomes that develop, the more narcotic type of high. About 10-15% amber is what a lot of growers go for. Good mind/body high.
