    Harvest time for 1st time grower

    I have a quandary. Looking at my plant with a loupe, the trichomes are starting to turn light amber, but the pistils aren't really curled up. I've been back and forth on the how to harvest page and can't decide. Is this plant ready? All 3 of my plants are in this same condition. Please excuse my noobiness.

    Alright, not to worry BR2K is here to save the day!! First, we'll quick dry a bud in my solar oven. Then I will sample, said bud. If it passes muster, your plant is ready. I just need your name, address and phone number (in case I get lost)...

    I actually have my Alaskan Purple hung up (and some larf buds in the solar oven). I had the opposite situation - I have not very many amber trichomes but the pistals have pretty much given up the ghost and curled in. I have been using the "Underbud Sampling" technique. Once my brain was sufficiently melted away from a vape session, I figured it was time to harvest. YMMV - CONGRATULATIONS ON YOUR FIRST HARVEST!!!!!

      Not to worry about the pistils - the trichomes is where the THC CBD and all the others are produced. Go by the trichomes.

        Depends what kind of high you’re after. If it’s couch lock, wait till you think they’re ready then leave it a week or so.

          Definitely in the harvest window.
          Some strains will curl in the hairs in matter of no time. And others taking their time to do it.
          as Canuck is saying- look at the trichomes.
          beautiful bud for a 1st time grower. Bom trabalho 👍🏻
          Just because people are over 50 doesn’t mean they know everything.
          You can teach a old dog new tricks - But it will still think the old ways are the “best” lol

            Looks really good. I'd probably give it another week but that's just me. Just make sure to look at the buds, not the leaves. I've made that mistake before, I think most of us have.
