Get a microscope or zoom in with a good camera. Cloudy trichomes with a mix of amber is what i go for. At one point you will notice it start to smell a lot stronger and the buds should be hard with at least 50% orange hairs. The white hairs will turn orange when its drying. Based on the pictures id say at least another two weeks. If you want to know if the nutes are gone take off a fan leaf and lick juice. If it tastes like water its good to cutdown aslong as the other variables i mentioned are good as well

Looks like your sugar is getting milky You are about 2 weeks from harvest day. You can keep flashing until there.
Hope it help. If you need anything ask on my chat.
Happy growings

The only way to tell when to harvest is by using a microscope, like others suggested. Looking at the pistils, as an indication of when to harvest, isnt as accurate as looking under a microscope. Also, put the light schedule back on 18/6. Since autos have such a short life span, IT IS a waste of your time and money (buying seeds and nutes) leaving the light schedule on 12/12 (thats only for photoperiods). Switch back to 18/6 because that means more photosynthesis for your autos which means more growth and that of course means BIGGER BUDS!

I’d say you still have 2 to 3 weeks left. I’d def put the light back to 18/6

Your plant needs to be watered with pure water for 2 weeks and then fed your normal feeding of flowering nutrients at 1/2 to 3/4 normal strength. Feed fer 1 once or twice a week for another 1 1/2 months. Then, if all her hairs are orange/red or 50/50 white and red, she is ready for harvest.

I'm not sure to understand what you mean by "ready for autumn" ? You mean "ready for harvest" ?
Judging by the latest pictures you uploaded, it seems that your plant is not ready for harvest yet : you still have many white pistils, leafs are still in good shape, buds can still get bigger. The best way to know when your plant is ready for harvest is to watch carefully everyday with a tiny microscope / magnifier. Bangood has a lot of models, some you can hold in your hand, some others are mounted on a pair of glasses. Looking at your buds with a good zoom level will allow you to see trichomes. For the most part, trichomes will display maturation by changing opacity from a clear translucent state to a cloudy white and, later on, amber hue. Depending on the effects you want and the advices from the breeder, you'll want something like 10% to 30% amber trichomes : this is a bit tricky and you'll need to watch everyday, sometimes twice a day. If you're skillful enough to provide us some pictures of your trichomes day by day, we'll be able to help you determine the perfect day to cut your plant. Don't forget : you'll need at least 10 days of plain PHd water (flushing) before harvest so your plant and soil will absorb every nutrients left and your buds won't get a weird chemical taste. I'll be around, good luck with this beautiful girl bro !

The best way to tell when to harvest is by looking at the trichomes with a loupe/magnifier. Milky white at a minimum, some amber is typically preferred. Also, you should see the white hairs curl in to the buds and change to a orange/brown color. I like to start seeing the fan leaves changing to yellow too. The curling of the leaves in your pics is what’s commonly known as ‘the claw’. This indicates too much nitrogen and will also slow down your time to harvest. The dark green leaves also indicate too much nitrogen. I’d suggest backing down on the nutrients or feeding straight water for a while. One more thing, in my experience autos always take at least a week or two longer than the breeder advertises before they are really ready for harvest. If the plant has been stressed at all it can be an extra month. The bud development is looking very nice. However, growing is all about patience. Giving her more time will pay off in the end.
