Need your experience to tell me if I’m getting close and what has to be done for harvest. Tia
Hello and welcome to the forum. It looks like you have a ways to go yet. I will tag someone who can help you more. I’m new here too. @PurpNGold74
Only way to tell is to view trichomes. Usb microscope or jewelers loop. Either is about a 20.00 on Amazon. Jewelers loop is a lil easier IMO. I have both anyhow. This pic will help you decide
Thanks for the tag.
You still do have a decent ways to go @K-88. Ur plant still has all white pistils n will likely put on a few more rounds before swelling n hitting proper maturity.
Do you recall when you saw pistils first forming ‘crowns’ at the tops?
Ha be e a scope having hell getting to work
Ur buds arent really swollen enough to properly scope at this point. 5+ weeks imho
Wait for most of the pistols to turn brown and recede into the calyx’s then start looking at the trichomes for cloudy to amber. I agree with @PurpNGold74 five weeks maybe six
Make sure you check trichomes on the bud/flower not the little sugar leave on the buds.
About week 6
@PurpNGold74 is saying you have about 5 weeks left, I think. 17 weeks seems long for an autoflower but I’m sure it’s possible. You shouldn’t worry about scoping until about 90% of the hairs turn red and lie down on the buds. That’s the first sign you are at harvests door.
Thanks. Yup thats what I was saying. A good low ball guess at that
Ok I will so u think 5-6 more weeks ok well thanks much & happy grow
