Does this look ready or should I hold off a little?

Thoughts on this please! I'm so nervous that I'm going to wait too long to pull it!

How often do you normally water? Tomorrow, feed 30ml big bloom with 7ml tiger bloom, Absolutely ZERO grow big as you are too far into flower for nitrogen.
You might not like this but i still see clear trichs in those most recent photos.

On this pic you can see trichromes of sugar leaves have a nice amount of amber while trichromes coating the calyx just start to show some amber

P1030183


Next photos show more amber trichromes coating the calyx

P1030184


P1030191


Usually you want to harvest anywhere in between the two when like 5% amber trichromes coating the calyx and when 30% amber trichromes coating the calyx.

There is also the case when trichromes from the sugar leaves and coating the calyx get mature more or less at the same time, anyway what you want to look at is the maturity of trichromes coating the calyx.

Wow! Nice photos and great explanation. Can you tell on the close up of the bud I posted if it's there yet? My thoughts are not yet but would like your opinion please.

What i used to do was chop off a lower bud or 2 depending on size. Let it sit in my cabinet until dry, smoke it and see how i feel. Not testing flavor here but testing out the high. If the tester was good, then i would wait another week or 2 and chop.
I domt do it this way anymore though now that i know what im looking at.

Seeing the first photo with all pistil brown and calyx fat enough i'd say you could harvest anytime now or give one or two weeks more, it's a bit hard to say from the other photos.

Be patient with your harvest. When checking trichomes, try to use better lighting and don't check the sugar leaves, in my experience, they ripen well before the trichomes on the actual bud. Check the trichomes on the flower and wait until you see mostly cloudy with at least a few amber.
