Talking Harvest time?

OKay, I have a beautiful lady in my outdoor garden. Big yummy buds. Most of the hairs are dark now. However I have been looking closely at the buds through a jewelers loop. I dont have a magnifing glass. Anyway I hear that I should wait until chrystals have begun to turn amber for optimum potentcy.
I still have white chrystals, but I think Im within a 10 days of harvest.
Does anyone have any input on the amber chrytals? Or should I just go with the darking of the hairs to determine harvest time???

Hey FarmerAnnie!

Was wondering about your ladies that had the nitrogen deficiency on your last post. Did the 25% pee solution do the trick? Surely your budding plant this is not the one that you had the problems with?

When looking at the prime time for harvest there are 2 main things to watch for.

#1 brown hairs. 70-80% is a rule of thumb for moist strains.

#2 Looking at the Trichomes

If you wait till the Trichomes haver turned from clear to amber colored, you have passed peak potency and it will start to degrade. You want to harvest when the Trichomes have turned from clear to milky white (cloudy) THIS is PEAK POTENCY TIME.
If your crystals are 90-95% white (cloudy) Harvest right now!!!! Some strains like Skunk#1 are ready when there is like just a couple of brown hairs showing. Upon examination of the Trichomes, you will then see that thay are all cloudy and ready for harvest.

Best of luck,

Ah, this is a different plant from my last post. The plants from my indoor set up are in great shape. I had over fertilized, then the flushed, I needed to feed them, but instead flushed again. Was a dumb move. I purchased a NPK test kit, now I have a handle on the problem. Anyway to answere your question, no I didnt use urine to fix problem, just a weak solution of fertilizer.
I just put these plants on 12/12. Ill be sexing them in the comming days.

The outdoor plant refrerred to in this post is my last outdoor plant. Im very ready to harvest. MY vegi garden is just about all done for the season, and the pot plant is about the greenest thing out there. Getting hard to camoflauge. This baby is ready, she's comming down today!

My husband has built me a nice space indoors.
Im looking forward to my first indoor harvest, should be ready in time for New Years.

Thanks for your response to my post.
Peace
FarmerAnnie
