Trichome color variance- When to Harvest?
    #210651 - 03/31/09 01:27 PM (7 years, 8 months ago)

When checking the trichomes for ripeness, do I check the top of the bud (newest growth) or the middle of the bud?

I ask because the tops of my buds are showing mostly clear/some cloudy trichomes, but the older growth and leaves are showing half amber/half cloudy. 

I clipped a sample bud two weeks ago when all the trichomes were still clear.  The potency was good then, can't wait to smoke the finished buds!

This is a pic from a few days ago...

There are other ways to judge too...do you have a macro setting on your camera where you could take a closeup of the budsites?

No macro setting, very old camera.  The hairs are mostly white, I know that when they change color, harvest is near.  I think I'll harvest when most of the trichomes are cloudy and the rest amber on several budsites.

I have always found that when you first start nociting the amber trichomes its a good time to harvest.
