Hi @Jberry! Pistils can be a clue, if you noticed that new pistils have stopped appearing and old pistils have almost all turned red and curly, but the best way to ensure it's the right time is to look at the trichomes with a magnifier/microscope. Clear/Transparent/Skinny trichomes mean it's too soon, Milky/Cloudy/Fat trichomes mean the harvest window is open, Amber trichomes mean the harvest window is ending, and THC is degrading. Looking at your last pictures, I think you're very close to the harvest window, so take a daily look at the trichomes evolution and try to get the most of your buds! Hope this helps, I'll be around, keep us up-to-date and happy growing! :facepunch:

Hey @Jberry :v: looking really good so far :+1:

The best way to find the right harvest Time is to look at the trichomes with a juweler magnifying glas.
You need to wait till they turning from clear to cloudy, if you waiting longer they turning from cloudy to amber. The best harvest time is when all are cloudy and the first 10-20% are getting amber.

More amber trichomes will make a bigger couch locking effect, less will gives you more a head high effect.

Ps: every grower prefer a different amount of amber trichomes, nur i think 10-20% is a good beginning. You could harvest some buds a bit earlier to see/feel the different and make your one experience :grin::+1:

Best wishes :v:
