how far down the plant do you check for the trichromes being cloudy/milky w 10% amber? will the top cola always have more amber?
I check a few in 3 different places. If the tall ones are done you can start drying those. and wait for the rest.
I check tricks at least 1/3rd the way down the plant on older buds. If you have fox tailing, it can make the decision more difficult.
Other 2 are right on above. Just harvested bottom buds mostly milky white, while top cola had about 30-40% amber on top
