It varies. Just keep an eye on them. A couple of weeks....maybe?? I don't know how old they are or anything that was just a complete guess.

Be sure to read up on "autoflower"/ruderalis seeds before choosing them. Unless you NEED autos, you might do much better with anything else. No more hoarding ultra genetics! We need more of the best not less!

I don't go by crystal color but rather how the plant looks--which takes crystal color into consideration but not as a primary indicator. I look at the shade leaf to make sure the plant is flushed. The leaf turns yellow as the plant tries to salvage the older leaf for as many nutrients as possible before it dies.  The yellow tends to start at the tips and works toward the bud. I always chop the plants before the yellow reaches the bud.

You get budding out at the end of the plants life cycle; where the individual flowers start to 'ball' up and look more like a mini flowers. There is usually a new growth spurt that shoots new branches from the flower.




Showing a flower before it buds out. It swells up for a few weeks before making that final push to bud out. 



You can see them forming; namely the white areas.


You can see the cola on the right has started shooting out, whereas the one on the left has almost no budding out, just getting fatter all over.



This photo you can see two of the shoots near the top. They pop out then fill in. I chop before or after that phase. Not all strains act that way, but a lot do. Its usually a 2-5 week extension if I want to let it bud out. Sometimes its worth it; it really depends on the strain. Some put on a lot of extra weight while others just fluff out to airy leafy bits with more stem than what its worth. Try to take a plant to 13+ weeks and you'll see a whole new side to your plants.

There are products that induce that bud phase early; I've used House & Garden's Shooting powder. I liked the results and have been waiting to try it again to see if it works a second time. I had to get the plant get to 13 weeks to finish that end-budding phase. I think it was a bit too much stem but I couldn't let it fill in any longer.



Grapegod turning slightly purpleish at 13 weeks. The purple tint wore off when trimmed, but the bud looked like it had a purple sheen. The under leaf was most of the purple that got trimmed away.

Keep in mind THC will degrade as they turn more amber and you will be left with a CBD rich plant which will create a couch lock type smoke.

which I try to stay away from, is it uncommon to harvest before all the hairs turn amber/recede ? the plant in concern is a majority sativa plant, probably 80/20

It is not uncommon but several things can contribute to them turning. Heat, nutrient deficiency, or strain in general. A lot of the sour diesel I have ever had a mix of white and orange. And a lot of the romulan I have ever had were all orange.

Get a jewelers loop and you will be able to tell when they are turning. Of course if you keep an eye on the plants with that camera and macro shots you will see when they are turning. You can clearly see those are CLEAR way early to harvest you will end up with a waste of a harvest if you pulled it now.

If you want take some pictures and we can give you a better guess of where your plant is.

Also, I never go by the pistol color. I have seen them turn orange half way through flower before while I have seen them turn orange in the last week or two.
