Trichomes question

Still trying to figure out reading trichomes, White Widow Auto, they’re at 9 weeks now. Are these pictures sufficient to see regarding when to harvest? And if so, what’s the general feel from the experts, take them now or wait another week or two? Thanks!

It looks like 9 weeks from seed. The metric that counts is time in flowering. Most plants will be ready for harvest at 8 to 10 weeks from the time the plant started flowering.

Start looking at trichomes after the white pistils have browned and receded back into the buds. Your plant still has several weeks to go yet before it will be ready for harvest.


You’ll need a microscope that magnifies a little close that that. Get at least. 60x.
