My outdoor White Widow Autos have 50% orange pisils but no dying leaves yet. Is this normal? I was told yellowing leaves is the first sign that harvest time is near. I was also told to harvest when pistils are 70-90% orange
The best way to tell if it is time for harvest is checking the trichomes with a jewlers loop or some type of magnifying instrument. 60x - 100x should do the trick.
Yellowing leafs and the change of the pistol colors are good indicators that your plant is getting close but to get the best product the trichomes are the best indicator.
What you want to look for is in this pic below.
Not a problem @Jenntee.
