- do i have to wait ? or cut the plant? because of leaves get yellow, trichomes are 97% milky, 1% is amber and 2% is transparent, the time remaining is still 25 days,
- dose without leafs the buds can increase in size?

From your last pictures, I see many white pistils that are still not curling, this makes me think that your plant is not ready yet for harvest. Buds can absorb energy without fan leaves, because they develop their own small leaves. However since all your leaves are not completely dead, I would let the greenest ones in place and remove only the 100% yellow ones, then wait a couple of days and look everyday at the trichomes with your magnifier/microsope. Good luck bro, harvest is coming!

So if you've got mostly milky trichs then it would be safe to cut. The more and more amber trichs the higher its couch loch ability becomes. I think most cut when you've gotten at least around 20 % amber. Not to high not to low.

No, you don’t have to wait. You can harvest whenever you feel like she’s ready. Personally I’d suggest waiting at least another week to let the white hairs curl in and start showing more red/orange. The yellowing leaves are ok for now, but be careful letting them go too long. I wound up with some bud rot letting one of my plants go too long with yellow leaves. Not sure the yellow leaves were the cause of the rot specifically but I think so.
