Hey there, in the 2nd pic your pistils on the main cola look fairly white, once the turn brownish orange and start to shrivel then I would say it’s getting closer to being ready I agree with fatboy and if you’re able to wait it out you will have better smoke! Especially if your weather is good.
Yeah the rest of that stem pistol hairs have changed probably 1-2 weeks left on the main cola.

I do it almost every year. I usually start mid to lower branches, just one to start but you can take off as many as you like. This year I produced seeds in all females and took the top 3/4's of the plants several weeks ago and there's still 4 bottoms in the ground each with a few branches. It does not seem to stress the plants much taking a few branches at a time and makes trimming easier when you're only trimming a few branches at a time instead of a whole plant or more. That can become a nightmare for one person.
Awesome thanks for that she's still 1-2 weeks away but good to know I can do her on segments. Thanks

Look at the trichomes...they are the true tell

At this point there is no more upward growth, just bud swelling. Once they're done stretching that's it.

Many remove all leaves with a week or two to go. I leave them on and trim them off once I remove a branch and then hang to dry with the sugar leaves. I remove those before jarring.

I had one only just finished with a late stretch so it's going to be way behind..

First, shes not close to done, the colas need to fill out a lot. If you do a segmented finish, take the top half of the plant, cut the main and wrap a rubber band around the stump to help her recover and prevent disease. I’d let her run and pinch off a couple of the smallest buds. Nicely done but be patient.

Hey there this is what I came up with when I had to chop my main stem due to a borer of some sort making it’s way into the top of my plant. I used heavy string and warm wax to seal the mainstem off from anything that might make its way into the plant

Y’know i’m not a botanist but i think the plants vascular pressure takes a big hit if you don’t close the cut some way. Could take weeks to heal itself.
