I been flushed last Friday 3gal and then today I did 4gal. Ppm is around 575.. should I get ready to harvest this wknd or so? Or should I wait longer. Any advice greatly appreciate. Or if need to post more information just let me kno.

depending on the strain but the rule of thumb is wait for more than 60% amber trichs to get the most out of your flowers...hard to tell with what's offered up as info...

You should consider harvesting and quick drying a small bud to taste test. You might like the current ripeness. If you think it can improve with another week, go for it. Don’t rely solely on % amber trichs or seed type ripeness schedule.

Let's have some closeups of the buds. If you can get close enough (and in focus) to see the trichomes, it would really help.

My thought is that it's time to harvest at least the upper buds. (Top 12-16 inches). It might not be yet - need more photos - as you may just be in the bud-fattening stage. Or the top buds may be slowly swelling while lower buds are still adding a lot of size.

But in any case you might cut one tall cola, dry it as well as you can (proper dry) and take a small part of a bud to test smoke it. (That part can be quick-dried).

If your trichomes are all clear, it's too early. If all amber, it's too late. (Your sugar leaves will also have turned brown probably). You generally have about a 2-week window for harvest, more if taking the top colas and then allowing the bottoms to grow for another couple of weeks.
