Trichome color and harvesting

  1. Not sure how to word this question so here goes, I know about what color trichomes you should have when it's time to harvest and I know about flushing for a week or so before harvest but if you have a strain that your not sure when it finishes how can you flush a week or so early if your not sure when the trichomes will mature?:confused::confused:
  2. you will just have to check them periodically
  3. experience really, when u see um start to cloud, amber will start showing in bout a week give or take. get ya close
  4. First off...hydro or soil? And do u plan to water cure?
  5. As ^ suggested, check the trichs periodically. Radioshack has a simple $13 microscope you can buy that works great. Once you start seeing trichs turn cloudy, you probably have 1-2 weeks left in my experience..
  6. Thanks, yeah I got couple of good microscopes just didn't know the time frame from cloudy to amber and would it give me time to flush my coco.
