    I have 2 plants the top buds look to me at the peak rest of the plant look less ready
    I have few questions.

    Is the buds in the picture are ready to harvest?

    Can I take off only the buds that are ready and leave the other on the plants or do I need to take the plant off?

    This is an outdoor plant and I have at least 3 more month of good sun, does the plants will have 2nd cycle of flowering?

    Do I need to take it off or can it last a winter

    Thanks and have a nice weekend

    ^--Ya let em go longer. You could also stagger your harvest; Take 1 branch a week.

    If you have a microscope look for milky or amber crystals(trichomes) on the flowers also look for the calyx(a false seed pod) to swell. A general rule of thumb is that 50% dark hairs and it should be picked. The plant can be picked in stages as well.

    These budded naturally and are that well developed? What region do you live in? I have some budding that aren't quite that well developed and others that have barely just started.
