    hi first time grower. having trouble seeing the trics. my eyes are not like they use to be. was hoping to get some experienced grower to tell me if they look ready? I've got two loups but still can't really tell.it looks like I have amber here and there on it. but still looks like there is a lot of clear in there to.im 75 days from starting 12/12 lighting and it was a clone. was told it was a 8-9 week strain.any advice would be great thanks

    If you don't want couch lock, chop now. Don't worry about flushing, a proper dry and cure is what makes great smoke.

    ok thanks for the good info. I was worried about flushing because I was told with the dark leaves I gave them to much n. but if that wont affect the end product I will chop it this evening.

    Have your drying area setup to dry as slow as possible without the buds molding. Then a nice slow cure. Chlorophyll will have time to break down if it's slow.

    Shoot for 50% rh. If you're lower than that try to lower your temps a little.

    Definitely looks like the calyx have stacked and swollen.
    Maybe harvest the tops and give the lower a bit more time if possible.

    Enjoy

    If you are seeing bunches of clear then wait another week.
