    which trichomes u harvest at

    look at trichomes which is the best time to harvest.Its Ur personal preference.Im trying to see whats the best in quality.we know that different strains brings better results because of THC content,but this is for those who dont know the strains.Be true,you know u can get some good strains from regular old bag seeds and have great result from it.people always quote that they dont have the time or space,but growing is within it self.I will place a poll for 30 days to see what the majority prefers.replies and votes are critical for me and other newbie growers across the globe trying to perfec theyre growing expericene votes and replies will be greatly appreciated

    I appreciate the photos you attached ... I never knew to harvest by the tri-chromes, I just went by the browning of the flower 'hairs', ...those pics will help a lot at next harvest, thanks ...

    If you wait until ALL the trichomes are cloudy/amber, then you missed the peak. The trichs turn cloudy and then amber because of THC degradation. Not all trichomes peak at the same time, so when some are cloudly/amber, others are just reaching their peak.

    Well, I think most people harvest on look of the plant and not the trichomes. I use a hodge podge of both look and trichomes. Its just a bitch to get a definitive look through my 9 buck RatShak scope. Anyone have a good solution for kepping the plant still when attempting to view it threw a scope.

    Well, you can snip off a piece of the plant, and them examine that on a table top.

    once trichomes turn amber they are past their peak levels.

    I am trying to harvest just as some trichomes turn amber...So, clear to mostly cloudy is my vote.

    that choice wasn't up top
    clear-no thc, potential for thc, just an empty vessel, pretty much...

    cloudy-thc, young and vibrant
    a combination of clear and cloudy will give you more of an up high...I prefer Indica's this way, since they have more medicinal tendencie's and more potential for couchlock/body stone...Harvesting earlier gives me a sweeter high (my preference).

    amber trichome's are past their prime, but the rest of the plant is at it's most potent state; For a short period of time. the thc is degrading at this point.

    so a combination of clear/cloudy/amber trichome's is what most experienced growers shoot for. It is all a matter of preference though.

    Just remember the high the concentration of clear/cloudy/barely amber is more of an up high (strains vary this conclusion, somewhat)

    with a higher concentration of cloudy/amber is going to be more dank and painrelieving/for sleep (especially in Indica's). choose a Strong Sativa and flower it to Full potential (get stupid)

    later; And; In the words of the Immortal Donnie Baker "I gotta GO!" lw

    My experiences:

    First, I have the book that has those photos, too.

    Now, I have harvested the first time when they were 95% clear and 5% cloudy (Nirvana's Northern Lights), and the second time when all the trichromes were clear (Nirvana's Chrystal- had to chop her early out of security concerns).

    In the second harvest, I feel like the plant doesn't quite have the potency like the first one did. Both had "up" highs, like I was shooting for. Therefore, I have concluded that you definitely want some cloudy. How much, I'm not sure how much cloudy is enough. My theory is at least 75% clear/25% cloudy. If you see amber trichromes, it's DEFINITELY time to harvest, since seeing amber trichromes will result in couchlock, which I try to avoid.

    Ultimately, it is up to you: The more amber trichromes you get, the more of a narcotic stone you get. If you have mostly clear and cloudy, you'll get a good up high with possibly some narcotic effect. If you get all clear, you'll have a complete up high, but with reduced potency.
