    So i have been letting my autoflower white widows go for about 79 days now.. And since this is my first grow ever just looking for some feedback as if i can chop them down now or is it to early?

    We recently had a heat wave of 30-40's celsius for 2 weeks with little to no rain so one of the plants is taking a hard heat stress with the leaves brittle and brown and i just noticed today that mildew has been creeping on the leaves.

    All my WW auto's have taken at least 90 days. Last one was about 100. Outdoor conditions tend to slow growth on some auto's. You got a couple weeks.

    Ok, what about the brittle leaves on some should i cut those off? some are 80% brown and break when you touch them. Thanks for the help those are 3 different plants ik when i view them some look farther along then some of the others so just wanna make sure they dont degrade in thc

    You can take the bad leaves off. If it's just the very edges leave them on.

    I agree a couple more weeks. Those should still fatten up some for you. I don't remove leafs unless they literally fall off when I touch them like mentioned above. If the plant isn't dropping them on her own she still wants them. Late flower I just gently shake the main stem to rid the plants of any leafs ready to drop.

    Hey, i was just checking out one of my plants and i seen a lot of white build up on the stem which i thought was thc so when i went to scrap it off the stem to see if it was thc a white fluffy big fell right off into the soil.. nothing iv ever been before but you would never know it was a bug unless you touched it as it blends into the white thc so then i thought id kill it and it jumped in the air about a foot onto the next plant.

    I was unable to get a picture but it is about the size of the eraser on the end of a pencil and fluffy white any idea what it is or if i should be concerned? plants are about 1-2 weeks from done max

    Do your best to remove any and all plant matter with any mildew or mold altogether. This is the only way I know of to keep it from spreading at this point in flowering as ya don't wanna spray your buds with chemicals. In regards to harvest, while there are dozens of methods of determining plant readiness, I don't think that there is anyone that could tell you whether or not they're ready without a pic of the trichomes from a 30x-60x magnification scope. You can get them cheap, about 10-15$ on Amazon, and you can even get a digital version that hooks up to your computer to actually take pictures of what ya see through the scope...I feel that a good microscope is a must-have tool for any grower, whether it be checking for pests or checking the color of your trichs!
