Is my cotton candy ready for harvest?
    #702258 - 12/26/13 01:10 PM (2 years, 11 months ago)

This is my first grow, and i'm not quiet sure when to harvest. I've been told that when most of the trichomes are amber in color or when most of the hairs are brown that it is ready. I'd say about 40% of the hairs are starting to turn a brown-red color. I currently don't have a magnifying glass but i'll probably just go buy one later.

I've been having a problem lately with these whiteflies.. I've been trying to kill most of them by hand destroying all the eggs and squashing any of the mature ones.. I'm wanting to harvest a little early before they totally infest my plant and move on to the other ones i have.

also let me know how much you think i'm going to get off of this plant :smile:

Here's some pictures.

Get a little hand held scope, much better than a magnifying glass.

As far as the white flies, they can be a bitch if you don't control the population. At least get some of the yellow sticky traps for them, crushing them by hand won't do much.

I'd say you have some more time until the buds fill out more. Maybe 2-3 weeks. How long has it been in flower?

I just got one of these scopes that works amazing. 60-100x and cheap. very durable feeling and has a slide stand. Its the one to get.

I tried the 30x and 40x jewelers loupe that I got from ebay for $2-3 but they are not very good, barely 10x.

Another one of those tiny scopes I tried that was 60-100 also but was made so cheaply that the switch broke off when I turned on the light. It was also so small it was hard to see. And the knobs barely broke.

I'm estimating it's been about 50 days sense flower, maybe more.

this whole process has been taking forever, maybe 6 months in now?

we started the plants outside because i didnt have a lamp at first, and it started to flower at only a foot tall. Luckily a got it back to vegging for a lot longer.

That scope is cheap! looks pretty good from the details as well.

I bet its garbage, probably not 30x.

I'd expect to go 70-75 days. Even plants that say they're ready in 8 weeks take about 10. What kind of light are you running?

That's why you support the branches.  I don't think it's ready to harvest man.

Sometimes you have to chop one just to smoke. I'd guess about 2.5 oz from that.

Maybe. No way it's 5, that's for sure.
