Grow Q&A: When To Harvest

Dear Dan, When checking with a microscope for ripeness, do you check multiple sites on the same plant? Or can you get all your info from a nice top cola? – Khron Burgundy

Dear Kron,
It’s a good idea to check various parts of the plant if you plan on harvesting all at once. Because the top buds ripen more quickly, you can clip them off first and then let the lower branches continue to finish flowering. If you can’t stagger your harvest this way, use the microscope to examine the glandular trichome. When most of the trichomes have gone from clear to cloudy, but before many have turned amber is most people’s desired time to harvest. Some let the gland heads go more amber for a more lethargic stony effect.
