What are your temps in winter
I recommend autos fir a winter grow since they dont depend on light To flower

Looking at tricombes with a loop or pocket scope is best way to judge when to harvest

Really kinda need closer pics to the trichomes. But from what I can see u have about 2 weeks left. Is the first pic a diff plant Bc it looks like it might have 3-4

Its the same plant…ill try and zoom

How should they look? Please mind these are just from random seeds I smoked over a few years nothing fancy

Could b dirt weed they all need to have a mix of milky and amber trichomes. Almost no clear. That’s some pretty bag weed btw. I don’t use a loupe I just take pics with my phone and blow them up. Much easier for me to see the color. If u can post a few pics like the ones I showed u there will b many people who will chime in to tell u if they would harvest. The more amber trichs u have the heavier the high or couch lock as people refer to it.

I think it’s done: wink:

I go by tichomes with a magnifier but a lot of guys still go by red to white hair ratio.
Most will harvest at about 60-80% of red hairson your buds
It looks about ready to me.

They not rdy yet still see a lot of white hairs when they are 85% red then it is safe to say harvest but tricombs is better and more fool prof but you will need a jewelers loop or something on that front here is a pic of mine and my flush started yesterday

If you look at last photo you can see a few tris going amber and when I see that I start my week long flush I’m in rdwc soil is a little different but not much I did a 2 wk flush when I was in soil
