Nice buds. Generally if there is still pistols standing up she is still looking for pollen and will continue to flower until she gives up. I would keep going. Just my thoughts but wait to see what the experts say.

They look great @Commando45 nice job! Your sugar leaves look pretty golden brown, which isn't as good a indicator but being as brown as they are I'd guess you've got a fair amount of amber tricombs on your buds also. Not as many but I'd guess you are sailing at a nice clip away from uppity buzz and more towards couch lock. Any way to get a bit closer to those tricomes? I council harvest at your leisure. They are ready. Congrats you done good! :yahoo:

If I were you I would give it a flush of water 3x your pot size to get all the nutes and salts out of the pot and then give it the recommended dose of nutes. From my understanding the plant will reduce it’s nutrient uptake from the roots and take the reserves from the leaves on it’s own when it is reaching maturity. Which is why the leaves autumn out(change colors) The last two weeks is where the buds put on a lot of their weight and will need nutrients to do that. Flushing in the end is pointless in this sense. The buds will swell where the new white hairs are bursting out. I’d let it go for 2 more weeks and take a bud or two as the trichomes mature and see which ratio you like best. I think these buds still have some swelling to do, but they do look good though. @Emilya can explain it better than I can.

Your ready depending on the high you want. Personally for me I would let it go another two weeks based on the pictures. I like to get stoned as opposed to high.
Gave her a flush on Sunday, them pics were a week ago, im gonna see how she goes the nxt few days, still pushing them pistils out...triches are alot more cloudy x amber, some still clear

There is a moment towards the end of flowering when the plants drink a lot of water and at a certain point they stop drinking a lot, from that moment on you are free to cut them, Even if I look at the amount of white tufts and trichomes, I wait for that at least 50% ambar color. Naturally if you grow in height the harvest time between the tops at the top changes from those at the bottom.

It depends on the type of plant (duration of flowering), indica and sativa have different times but at the same time I don't know if I can explain myself. In my case I put plants in bloom with little more than 30 days of grow, shortly after the initial stretching when he creates many gems you will notice that he will stop elongating too much and the gems will start to swell this and the moment in which I see that they drink a lot and continue like this when I don't see about a 20/30% of orange-colored tufts and the trichomes at that moment have a milky white color at this point it depends on the grower, if he wants a more or less narcotic affection. I have always grown Indika plants, hash, kush and seed not from clones. Dude I don't know English I hope google translator translates well what I mean I apologize for this. :peace: :nerd-with-glasses:
