    so I have WW going at the moment and majority of the trichomes are milky but the buds aren’t really fat and look really airy mostly leaves it looks like. So my question being should I still harvest or should I wait longer to see if they start getting fatter I’m into day 47 of flowering and about 8 leaves have turned yellow dieing off.

    The trichomes are the best indicator to whether a plant is ready for harvest, when they are milky its considered at its most potent.However from what you have explained, I am under the impression that it is way to soon.On day 47 I would not harvest, I suggest waiting possibly another month. If possible send images this will help a great deal and using a 30x or greater scope will give a clearer indication to the clarity of the trichomes or use the pistils as a indicator (when they turn a dark red and or begin to curl inwards).

    Hope this helps and happy growing.

    Honestly most strains endup going a few weeks longer.

    Let the plant die naturally. Its ok.

    Ps. You start counting flower days (47) from when you see little flowers poppinv up everywhere during the stretch. ( week or two after flip 12/12)

    And theres no way to help you determine unless you post a few pics.

    The Grow room

    The whole plant in white light. Not purple leds.

    A closeup of some buds.

    If possible, a very close up shot of the trichomes.

    Good luck pal

    This is my first time growing I decided to start 9 plants so Incase I make a mistake to the first or 2nd one it’ll be ok cus I still have 7 more to get it right lol but since u said that the flowering stage counts from when u see little buds then I’ve had it all wrong lol I started from when I changed the light cycle so that means I should have about another 2 weeks
