Canibiz started grow question 3 years ago
Wondering if plant will be ready for harvest in 2-3 weeks. She keeps growing and there's not much room left towards the top of the tent.

Hey there Canibiz! They look to need 3-4 weeks, but the best and only sure way to tell when its time to harvest is by looking at the Trichomes of the plant to see their coloration. The color process goes Clear to Cloudy to Amber the older they get. You want to harvest when the majority of your Trichomes are in that Cloudy stage of age. You can get a cheap microscope off of amazon or try to use one you already have. Other than that you will be just guesstimating and trying your best to harvest at the right time based on the individual strain. If you need space at the top of your tent you should try Low stress training the canopy by tying it down carefully so its even and has more space to grow. Best of luck! :sunglasses:

The good news is that you’re not likely to have an issue with her growing upward anymore, so she is not likely to outgrow your tent. The stretch is over and she’s going to put all of her energy into making those buds now. :sunglasses: If you feel like she is getting too close to the light :bulb:, You can carefully tie some of the branches to gently spread them apart and it will hold them down from the lights a little bit too. Just be gentle and don’t force brittle branches. Low Stress Training is best started around 3-4 weeks, but Your branches are probably still supple enough to allow some manipulation. Holes around a pot edge are handy for tying the branches down in LST. And somyou know, Once about half of your pistils have dried up, you’ll have a couple more weeks. I’m on my first grow too, but I’ve been following along and learning for over a year.

Good Luck!

Hi there mate your plants have only just started to develop her flowers
I would expext atleast 5 more weeks of growth before you could harvest anything near mature buds
The buds themselves can almost double in bulk during the final weeks of growing so don't be in a rush to harvest
as you will be disapointed :smiley:

4-6 weeks I think but she won't stretch anymore so I think you'll be fine.
