I see some amber on there, but I can't tell exactly how much. I'd like to chop around 20% amber at most. Is my estimate of next tuesday a good time to chop?

The trichs will continue to ripen after you harvest the buds so if your looking for 20% at harvest you got a few more days. But if your looking for 20% at smoke then I’d harvest them now and you should end up around where you want to be. I see about 10% now

Usually when the pistils curl back and turn reddish brown, then it's time to harvest, but that can also be deceiving, sometimes they do that for environmental conditions. You'll have to check the thricomes daily, because they can get to the point you want any day now.

Hi there! Having amber trichomes means that you already missed the perfect window, your buds will get slightly less THC but more CBN, resulting in a relaxing / couchlocking smoke. If you're looking for a recreative high, you should have cut her when the first amber trichomes appeared. If you want something more 'stone' than 'high', to fight anxiety or insomnia for example, you can wait until you have 20-30% of amber trichomes. I'll be around, good luck with your havest!

Hi,

Looking very nice buddy. I always went with harvested later rather than early as you'd be surprised what little bit of weight could be added. 'If it looks ready, give it another week', or day for that matter. So Tuesday should be right on schedule, Remember to give her a 10-14 day flush to get rid of any bad chemical tastes, don't want to compromise your great looking crop so close to the end. You'll thank yourself for it and you'll have a really nice end tasting product! I chop when I see 80% cloudy and 20% amber. Can see a slight fade in your leaves but by Tuesday with flushing you should see some nice colours. Beautiful buds, Good luck and can't wait to see final harvest!

Your buds look great! Next Tuesday should be fine. But you could harvest earlier too if you see 20% before then. Well done!
