    Was wondering if I can cut down the middle bud(the one closest to the light) at week 10.which is coming up in Monday and let the rest continue to get some light suppose to harvest at week 11.

    From the looks of all the white hairs, you have quite a way to go. Possibly 2 weeks or more. When its done all the hairs will turn brown and most of them will reccede into the bud. Also get a jweller’s loupe and scope out the trichomes. You want most of them cloudy with a few amber in the mix depending on the quality of high you want. You have done a awesome job ao far. Very nice looking plant. You are almost there, be patient and wait a few weeks. You have done all the hard work and do not make the mistake of harvesting early. You will get jittery high and buds will not reach full potential in flavor, quality and yield if harvested early. Some sativa or sativa dominant strains do take longer.
    Happy growing!!

    You can definitely harvest the top cola and let the rest finish, but from the looks your top isn’t ready yet looks 2 weeks away. You will get more yield by harvesting the top and letting the lowers develop longer.

    Make sure you don’t break it just pinch and apply pressure little by little and you will fell it get a snap sound and fall over then just let it hang it’s called super cropping look it up on YouTube for further instructions this way at least your bud will finish

    Also, I will suggest not to apply any kind of stress at this stage. Do not pinch or bend. You are too far down in flower. It will just add more time and a possibility of turing the plant hermie. At this stage you want to avoid any stress. Keep things as smooth as possible. I cannot stress enough, do not pinch or bend.
    Happy growing!!

    All pistils should be red + receding before harvesting top.

    Some strains throw out white pistils indefinitely. You harvest by trichomes not pistils.

    I will add that seed plants can take a while longer to mature. Most breeders list flower times of sexually mature clones. If you're running a seed plant this round temper time expectations.

    I have had some pure sativas that take 24 weeks to flower, they all stop throwing white pistils eventually...

    I would move the light farther from the top, and wait 2+ weeks b4 harvest.
    It's getting bleached by the light:hug:

    And I guarantee you're not harvesting them at the peak of their effects if you're just going by pistils. For decades and decades the only commonly accepted way to tell if you're harvesting at the right moment has been trichomes.

    If the pistil is white, how is the calyx big enough to see trichome on it?
    :roll:Your supposed to check trichome on calyx only, but if the calyx isn't formed...
