    Thanks! I still see a lot of clear stems in there, so letting it go. The girl likes a sleep aid so if it goes a bit longer I don't think there will be any complaints :P Also thanks for the second harvest info, trying to figure out how to pull it off.

    It's an older sony digital. I have a 200mm zoom with a conversion lens on it (60$) If you have a decent zoom lens you can get really close with a converter.

    Yea search the threads theres ppl been doing it with more experience than me. At first after letting em go thought id wasted the 4 weeks, itbwas so bushy their werent any big colas to watch and it seemed like not much had changed. Once we started chopping i knew id made right call. Usually i do one big 3x5 or 6 girl and two smaller ones. Now im thinking if i did two full sized and staggered their time id have a perpetual harvest out of a small lil room...

    Yes this method is known today as "triching" the bud. Thanks for posting this vital info.

    thanks for all the tips guys. I haven't needed to post any thing really, this forum has all the answers to all the questions i had up until this point.

    Im on week 7, and after checking my buds, only a few look ready. so since this is my first grow, and from bagseed, I cut a few buds that had some milky trichs and i'll let the rest just go for another week or two.

    hi iv,e got a few auto lennons in full bloom right now and i,m realy looking forward to that euforic hi and so i was wondering if any one has any experiance with them or other jack herer crosses sative dominant i spose the trichromes are all very cloudy milky with a few bronzed over here and there as they are only 13 % thc i,m guessing the hi is in the cbd,s or the plant itself should i wait until i got loads of bronzed over ones or when it,s milky or just normal 20 30 %

    i've always found the herrer high to be kind of light, i'd wait till i knew they were all as ripe as possible, to get the most out of it, let them get to about 10% amber/brown, then cut it

    Thought I'd post a few trichome pics of a Pineapple Express 2 plant I have going right now. She's just about ready, just letting her fatten a bit more before I chop.

    Lost Coast OG
    Clone from a friend
    Flowering for 63 days

    Just wondering if this looks good enough to cut. This is a bottom bud, the top buds look about the same. Maybe more cloudy by a little. I know the pic isn't that good but all I have is my loop and a cell phone.
    Thanks for any advice.

    I go with this rule of thumb when mostly Indica

    If you are growing mostly Indica hybrids, it is better to harvest your plants when the resin glands are completely developed but not fully ripen – before they turn amber – unless you want to be glued to your sofa

    What I do is wait till I see ALL CLOUDY/MILKY or just a couple (very few like one of 30 trichomes) amber - then chop.

    63 days huh? Maybe invest in a more/ better light. I like to wait until there are a few dark amber ones. If you cut while cloudy there almost certainly will be a lot that ain't cloudy at all. By the time they start turning yellow then amber then most all the others are cloudy and ready to cure. I didn't see any yellowing let alone amber.

    Do you mean invest in more lighting in the room? I have 9x 1000 hps in 8" vented hoods and a rather small area. Or did you mean better lighting for pics? Sorry just confused.

    bullSnot Well-Known Member

    Holy solar radiation batman. That is a lot of light, heat and electricity in a small room. Make sure you wear some sunscreen before entering

    First time grower and I'm not sure if it's early or not, should I be harvesting this?
