Hi! :)
Trichomes are pretty clear, although some milky ones appears, buds have almost all pistils brown.
What do you think? Should I harvest today, or next week?

PS: Why some trichomes doesn't have that "head"? Under microscope i can sometimes see a lot of them without head.

Hey there @J0sefCZ Solid question my friend! I see you haven't closed this question and perhaps that means you didnt get the information you were looking for? Here my attempt!

All trichomes come in two forms non-glandular(no head) and glandular(head). Most non-gladular trichomes are single-cellular while ALL Glandular trichomes are multi-cellular. Most likely the Trichomes you are seeing are actually one of the 3 dominant Glandular trichomes that are just in a maturing phase so I wouldn't be alarmed. But if they never develop heads even with the right time then they were non-gladular trichomes which are said to be used primarily from the plant as a defensive mechanism against pests and to regulate the micro-environment around the plant tissue. Hope this brought some insight into the situation for you. Feel free to ask more questions if you like! :sunglasses:

For Ripening your Girls need Light and warm Temps, if you would live around aequator or at leas in portugal i would say let them longer. But hte growth under that conditions is around zero...wel you can let them stand, but visit them daily because the risk of mold is very high it temps are down. Happy growing and soon anice Harvest

hey jozef , you want trichomes to be cloudy, because that means they're potent with THC, clear and they're not ready yet, amber and it's too late. Trychomes take something like 2 weeks average once they begin to ripen , but they can ripen over night, just keep one checking them the next two weeks, you can get a good feeling when to start flushing that way. Good luck, looks great , now is just a waiting game ! :rocket:

Headless thricomes are not mature and have some time to go still. As for harvest, I would wait a few more days and let the thricomes mature for peak potency. Check daily, the thricomes mature overnight most it's the times

Usually people will harvest when 10-15% of trichomes are amber . Now with that being said that's not the law you could harvest this fine young lady today. Its hard to tell because the plant isn't right in front of me but seems ready ! The hairs are a nice orange its coverd in crystals yeah I'd be harvesting that for sure today. If you wait to long you will lose potency and flavour , but all in all this plant looks ready to go and to provide you with some kick ass medicine ! I hope this information has helped you a bit on your journey to becoming a master ! -Happy Growing!
