Are my plants ready for harvest? Or Do I still have more time?

Around Day 55, I checked my trichomes and they were pretty much cloudy and I’ll post pics below. However it’s Day 60 and I want to think that my plants are ready for harvest but not completely sure. I’ve been giving them pH’d RO water and molasses since Day 46. And the plants are stinky . Being that the majority of the pistils are brown I’m hoping I didn’t wait too long. What do you guys think? Also the two strains are Wifi OG and Northern Lights

They are looking nice. I would give them longer than a week though. There are still quite a few clear trichomes in those pictures. I like waiting for a lot of amber but that's just me.
It's easy to cut too early and really, really hard to harvest too late. So, don't sweat it, they are looking good and should turn out great!
Good luck friend!

The trichome pics were from Day 46, the plants pics were from today which is Day 60.

What kind of scope is that you're using for your trichome pics. I'm in week two and need to grab one. Bought one but had to return it cuz it was total crap.

l dont count first 2 to 3 weeks of preflower as flower. 80 days on 65 day strain is normal even 90 on 65 day
I just depends, if you want a more up high I tend to I chop earlier anyway...but some people have light issues they aren't aware of, like LED lights or just light leakage under the door if its indoors. The strain or hybrid leaning can also factor in the wiggle time, some plants don't start fruiting on a dime, some do the second you turn the lights off for more than 10 hours.

TGA's Vortex was always right on the money 53-59 days max, any more and I always lost potency and desired effect.

I went through the same shit! Don’t get too caught up on the “day” keep your focus on the trichomes m plant said 70-75 didn’t see this till day 85-90.

Hey brow, can you please say a little more about it? I mean, I switched to 12/12 and usually start to count a day after it, but for 2 weeks nothing happens. Should I discard these counting days?

Its a transition stage tech still veg once buds set, look like cooton ball on top, l start to count, usually 85 to 90 days or when hairs shrink and calyxs puff up, it looks like best youve ever seen. Then crop it, got one 80 something days and still got a week or 2 to go but l had ph issues so l expect some extra days.
