To harvest or not to harvest?

First ever grow. She is a bag seed so not sure of strain. Guy I got it from said he got his clone from someone named Jeffery so that’s what I have been calling her. She is about 7weeks after turning light to 12/12. Leaves have started to turn yellow…. Checked trichomes, they all look cloudy with a few amber. I guess I’m just curious about how much longer I should wait before flushing and prepping for harvest…

I see a lot of young pistils there still but trichs are the best indicator. If you say it’s all cloudy and some amber it’s just a question of how much amber you want before you chop.

7 weeks from 12/12 seems pretty quick to me. That’s like no more than 6 actual weeks of flowering. But again, you are the one with the magnifier looking at the trichomes and if they’re ready they’re ready.


After reading a few forums. I was looking at the trichomes on the leaves. Maybe a few more weeks to go yet. Are yellowing of fan leaves normal this early?

I’d guess 4-5 weeks. You need to check the trichs.

The one where you can see amber trichomes is on the leaves the other is on the bud itself.

Don’t worry about the trichs on the leaves, just the calyxes.the leaves mature a lot faster. You may need a scope with higher magnifying abilities. But if you can see them clearer than we can in the picture you should be able to judge.

I have a loupe. I was trying to get a decent picture through it with my phone… :sweat_smile:
