    ***First Grow*** Am I ready to harvest? Pic attached

    I'm nearing the end of my first grow and was planning on cutting my plants down in about five days. I've been using a jewelers loupe to check the cloudiness of the trichomes, but I'm not sure if I'm assessing them correctly. So now I'm judging the readiness based on the quantity and reddish color of the hairs and how frosty they are.

    Just wanted to know if they look like they're ready to go to the drying stage.

    Any help is greatly appreciated!

    Impossible to tell with the blurple colors. Can you show them in regular lighting? And closer in on the trichomes?

      cant tell by the trichomes but there looks to be quite a few white pistils still sticking straight 50/50 with the orange pistils...i would wait till almost all have turned orange.(1-2 weeks) then take a good close up pic, outside or under regular light.

        it does look overall ready but you need to check the trichomes, if you cant do that i think you can harvest now or anytime in the next week

        Thanks for the insight!

      I like a more buzzy high so I chop somewhere between 50/50 and 75/25 but up to you. It reduces the yield a bit
