Ok folks this is probably the number one newby question.

Is this plant looking pretty close to harvest?

All comments welcome. Thanks

HI @theNoyd! Not so close to me, I see this plant suffered from nutrients toxicity, so I think she will need at least 2 more weeks, maybe 3. Since you're going to have only 1 cola, I would wait for this cola to be perfectly ripe. The best way to tell when your plant is ready for harvest is to grab a jewelry magnifier / hand-held microscope, and take a daily look at the trichomes. The trichomes onto the buds should have changed from thin & clear / transparent to fat & milky / cloudy / opaque. Once you'll get only milky trichomes, the harvest window is open! For an energetic high, harvest before the first amber trichomes appear. For a couch-locking high, you'd rather harvest once 20-30% of the trichomes have turned amber/red, you'll get more CBN/CBD but less THC. Hope this will help, keep us up-to-date and enjoy your harvest :facepunch:

Hello @theNoyd ! It looks like it needs 1 more week maybe 2. The bast way to make an accurate harvest is to check the trichomes with a microscope like this ( https://www.amazon.com/Light-Microscope-Loupe-Currency-Detecting/dp/B006W2IEB2 ) For a mind effect harvest when trichomes are 80 % milky 20 % amber and for a body effect harvest when trichomes are 80 % amber 20 % milky. Happy growing !:facepunch:

Yes, it does look close; probably 1 more week.

Hello ! Well the royal dwarf is a quick strain so she will be ready soon but to be sure I recommend you to get a magnifier and check at the trichomes ratio , to be sure to not harvest too soon I recommend you a 100% milky ratio at least but if you searching for a couch lock effect then go with a 20%/30% amber trichomes. I hope it will help you :grin::+1:
