    Thoughts on Harvest

    This is my first grow and therefore my first harvest. I have a Northern Lights which I believe is getting close to harvest. My goal for this plant is to get that relaxing calming effect so I am trying to wait to harvest as long as I can. I have read on GWE to wait until the trichomes are milky and no longer clear. I haven't noticed any milky trichomes but there is amber present. My guess is another week or two it should be about ready but I don't have any experience with this so I don't really know. I would appreciate any input or thoughts on harvesting and if in fact I am getting close.

      I'd say your very close..from pics most trichomes are milky. Personally i would go a bit longer till i saw a bit of amber showing. I'd go with your gut feeling..a week, maybe two. Looks Good!

        Thanks homegrown. I appreciate your input and I agree. I am going with my gut on this and I am planning on pushing it another week maybe even 2. I would like to see more amber color similar to jb4point0 pics.

        Very nice pics! Did you take those with your phone camera or was it a Canon or Nikon camera?

      Are you checking the trichomes on the leaves or are you checking them on the calyx? Trichomes on the leaves will mature faster than the trichomes on the calyx (technically bract) and the calyx is the one you want to be looking at. An old saying - when you think it's done, wait two weeks. But you are spot on, checking the trichomes is the best way to determine ripeness.

        no worries ChadWestport, i understood the terminology but most beginner growers probably dont. Nothing wrong with your reply..but it did send gman420 on a search to see what you were referring to lol. Gotta use the KISS method here...keep it simple.......... and welcome to the forum.

      The calyx is the bud essentially. Individuals are seen in the picture, but when they grow close together they form in dense nugs.Click image for larger version

        Thank you for the explanation. I did go to GWE and searched it to get a better understanding of what it was.
