IncognitoGreenThumb started grow question 5 years ago
After reading the week description above and also saying I finally updated pics to include the different parts of the plant at different ripeness, I ask when should I harvest? If it's just the 4 pictures up there then I've been lazy to go out and take new pictures starting week 7

Yes I would agree with others you have around 4 weeks left if you want to take it to it’s full potential and terms of a mixed body and head highs. _______________________Definitley flush for the full 2 weeks in 2 steps. First water with the volume of the pot in Luke warm water (20c) drench the pot without too much run off. Wait 10 mins follow up with another load of water 1-2x volume of pot. IMO the water does not need to be PH adjusted when flushing soil.:v::skin-tone-2:

Harvest when 60-70% of hairs have darkened for highest levels of THC.
Harvest when 70-90% of hairs have darkened for a more calming,
anti-anxiety effect as some THC turns to the more relaxing CBN.

For me, the pistils & general trichome coverage are the key to telling when she's entering peak ripeness. Pistils should be at least 75% dark & shrunken all over the plant if possible and buds should have the appearance of rock candy (covered in trichomes with the plant matter barely visible underneath).

At that point you have a 2-week window to zero in on how you want your effects. You'll need a magnifying glass or microscope for this part, as it requires being able to see trichome shape & color up close. Cloudy & white = peak THC potency. Amber = degraded THC (CBN). More amber/dark trichs = a more drowsy & stony effect. Mature trichomes tend to be tall with some bent over like a candy cane under their own weight.

If you aren't certain, you can harvest in parts by taking one or two buds that look done & quick drying them for testing. Hope this helps.

A. Check trichromes if they're glassy, let it keep going until they're more milky and amber, unless you like jittery anxious weed?
B. Pluck off a small bud dry it and smoke it and test it out.
C. Check breeders recommendation.
D. It's your dang weed, go with your instincts as you can see and inspect it much better than all of us. :wink:
Watch for the hairs turning colors and curling inward also swelling. If you're at 7 weeks of flowering, I feel like most strains are around the 10+ weeks of flowering, so possibly go off that as well.
P.S. I see you use foxfarm, I too suffer from heat and I use their boomerang supplement to help with that and it seems to work fairly well.
Happy healthy growing the plants looking great so far.

Always check trichomes through microscope and look at the pistils (a good 90-100% amber/rust/brown and they should be receding back into the calyx's).

U still have 3 -4 weeks at least i would start flushing in 14 days and go 2 weeks and see where shes at:v::v::+1::+1::beers::beers:

Its a regular strain, and i think you mayy have 4 more weeks or longer. As 909High Roller said there are no real flowers. Stay patient and give the flower the time it needs.

I see no real buds in those photos.It's more pistils than calyxes.It still has several weeks to mature.And Gorilla Glue might take a long flowering period.Even my autoflower plant took 16 weeks.
