Trichomes at harvest

Hey all, Gilly here. Just have 1 question for anyone that wants to answer!? Do the Trichomes ALWAYS turn milky white when ready for harvest??? Unless my eyes are deceiving me Its looking like my only plant is nearing the finish line way before she should?

If trichs are clear they are typically considered as not ripe. This is condition that is known to produce very racy buzz and paranoia in many.

Remember to check the trichs on the flowers, not
the sugar leaves. They develop and change color quicker than the buds. Pics will help a lot!

Trichomes will turn cloudy and then most will amber, but the trichomes on the leaves will turn long before the ones on the actual bud. Without seeing them myself I can’t see what you are looking at I can only guess you are looking at the leaves

Chances are she probably won’t finish out. My only hope is a warm October. Don’t think the growing season is long enough here in Il. Got her out real early this spring too. Buuttt…according to the October forecast, we’re supposed to have above normal temps so if that happens then she would be at the 7-8 week flower cycle. A guy can only hope, its gonna be real close!

PS / I’ll try to get a pic up?

Don’t know what happened to the 5th pic??? Here she is in all her glory!!! NOTE: I’m grow’in this bitch in town too! All the neighbors are cool, just gotta watch for the locals, they only come around every couple months or so. Too lazy ta mess with it anyways. Anyways, I only topped her once and she turned into a monster!!!

It looks great :+1: I live in a neighborhood to and I think if I would grow one out that big I’d have to sleep next to it or someone else would harvest it :grinning: I have a little duckfoot auto outside now it’s probably knee high was hoping for a little bigger but it was fun to grow until the caterpillars got on her I gave it the haircut looks like a marine ready for boot camp now

I had to give mine the flat top to keep her from peek’in over the fence! Hated to do that but she could be seen from the street! (At least that’s what my buddy said). If he can see it then EVERYONE can see it!

Well…come October 31st she’s gonna get chopped. (Maybe) Just hafta watch the weather? Long as it stays in the high 60s I’ll leave her be till she is done. Unless I’m see’in $h!t, I’m pretty sure the Trichomes are gett’in cloudy. I’m 2 weeks farther along this year than I was last year at this point and time. Supposed to be in the high 60s the next 10 days. We’ll see?
