Hi all, first time grower and poster. I have 3 plants going strong. These are ILGM Gorilla Glue Feminized seeds (NOT auto flower). I am using Detroit Nutrient Company – Great Lakes Living Soil, with some of my own compost mixed in. I am using my own version of a wicking system.
I am trying to find the best time to harvest. I am at the end of the 8th week of flowering. I am using a small jeweler’s loupe magnifying 30x and 60x. It’s hard to see with it being really small and trying not to shake and not the best eye sight .
Is it possible to use a digital camera , in this case I used a tripod to steady it, and zoom in to see the trichomes ? I kind of can see them but wonder if this will work or any ideas on how best to decide.
Also, 1 of the 3 has red/purple leaves. This started a few weeks ago. I read that is OK and maybe from a temp change. It seems fine but just wanted to make sure. Thanks for any tips or suggestions on when to harvest.
