    Pics under white light would be more helpful than blurple pics, need to see the bud maturity not trichs at this stage. Based on pic #6 of the bud I'd say you have at least 3 weeks, maybe more.

    I'd say 3-4 weeks. At least give it another week before flushing.

    I was thinking along the same lines but ive never actually been able to make it this far along.. looks like she'll be chunky by the time harvest rolls around, plus that give my seeds time to mature.. i pollenated 2 lower branches. I like the way she grows. I liked how the male smelled and became interested in combining the genetics to see what i'd get.. im rambling now..anyway, thanks

    Thanks and yeah I'll stick with my 3 weeks guesstimate. Those hairs where you see the odd one turning brown and receding should be almost all like that on the buds before you even check the trichs. Could be closer to 4 weeks, it's a toss up with many variables including your environment, lighting, and of course the genetics.

    Very insightful! I think ill plan it out like this>>>> ill water a few times with the normal nutes. Maybe less because i see nute burned tips. Very minimal burn. Then a week from now ill start the flush for 2 weeks and then check the trichs to see if she's ready for harvest.

    Sound like a plan, you don't want to back off too early and starve them, but feeding them a little lower is a good idea specially if you're seeing some tip burn. Assuming from one of the pics that you're in some form of soil or soil/peat mix. I use a mix of 50% soil/50% pro-mix, feed low ppm's later in flower, and generally water-only (that's my "flush") for the last week to use up anything left and fade them to the finish. Never end up with any flavour/taste issues or the like.

    GroErr - As long as you have fat, white straight hairs, you can ignore the trich color under magnification. I'd guess 3 - 4 weeks BUT you should send a new pic before harvesting in about 3 weeks.

    Yeah that's not even close. Trich pics can be so misleading, in fact on my own plants, if I waited for trichs to turn amber, the plants would be overripe.

    6 more weeks, harvest at day 80. Thats totally a guess

    it looks like you have thrips, and are deep into flower. so id suggest some colder temps to slow them down a bit. If you have other plants id use some monterey garden insect spray on them but dont spray buds. I looked again and your thrips are the worst ive seen, hopefully it isnt mites. You need to get a macro pic of those bugs that are gonna be on the underside of the leaves.

    All those little white spots and shiny spots are where microscopic bugs are killing your plant. it starts from the bottom up and that plant is pretty thrashed already. The bugs are having a field day. Use your magnifier to identify them. Pluck a leaf with the white spots and look over the underside near the leaf veins.

    if its thrips then just control them via environment. if its mites then do the same but they will wreak havok on the plants. you are learning so its no big deal. Dont spray them with chems while they have buds.

    usually a well grown plant will look totally finished 2-3 weeks before chopping. Its probably the same in a cattle feed lot but those last weeks make all the difference.

    2-3 as stated ... They will plump up and pistils will recede inward.

    Keep flushing to the toilet ...

    Ill put my money on 3 to 4

    I agree with Budz- Keep flushing to the toilet.
    Watering is watering,
    Leaching is leaching.

    Lol i thought i was doing pretty good. I must be a super newb because didnt think she was thrashed or even close to thrashed.. besides the thrips, i thought i had a good grow and a strong plant..but regardless
    Youre correct..last week i learned i had thrips, which was part of the reason i wanted to know how long b4 harvest. A few people said since i dont have much longer use a lite spray. I think tgat will affect the taste since im so close to harvest.. i had some plants from a grocery store in my tent a month or so back and they could've came from those.. what do u recommend?
