Are the trichomes telling me to harvest? I thought when I got to this step it would be obvious but know I’m second guessing myself. As you can see plenty of hairs have already turned rusty orange - top to bottom of buds. Hairs are making me think it might be time.
Of the four this plant flowered first and has beefed up buds the best. I would hate to botch this step.
Sage advice would be appreciated.

I agree, I would give it more time. I would keep a good eye on the trichs. I see a lot of clears and some cloudy. It’s hard to tell but it looks like the few ambers I spotted are on sugar leaves. Could you also post a pic of the plant and buds? What type of buzz are you looking for?
@Covertgrower I will do a full flush soon then and keep a closer eye on trichomes.
I cut back on N two weeks ago. No N for almost the last week and diluted nutes. I may have started that too soon. Lower fan leaves have yellowed and some sugar leaves looking beat up. Maybe that’s why so many threads have oranged up already.
@GreenJewels I’ll post a pic soon when I can get some better lighting. About the target buzz. I was hoping to avoid speedy anxiety of a too early harvest without going too far in couch lock territory.
I appreciate everyone chiming in. I was considering harvesting yesterday. Glad I asked around first.
She’s not tall at all. (Don’t laugh, she’s my first ) Main stem is twisted around side of the pot in a half circle. Hairs are mostly orange now which is what was making me think it was maybe time to cut. Maybe I cooked them under the light - I’m about 12-14 inches away with SF2000.
You’ve done a great job training her. 12-14" is a bit to close and that can turn hairs brown. What I read on the light says 16- 18" hanging height for flower.
I would chop 20% amber amore than that and your heading to couch lock.
You don’t have long though, keep a good eye on her trichs.
@FoxFire Plants are looking great! Good job getting to this point. I see some white pistils still. Also, the brown pistils will shrivel up and be incorporated into the bud. As @GreenJewels stated, best thing to do is keep checking the trichomes daily or every two days for the amber color.
