Can you harvest small amounts instead of the whole plant?

I was wondering since it’s close to harvest time if I could cut off the colas that look like they are ready? It’s my first outdoor grow and the larger colas have about 25% amber in them but there are smaller ones that have about 50-60% amber throughout. Any suggestions for me?

with all those white pistils I don't believe you are seeing the amber you think you are. The pictures I am seeing are NOT of a ripe plant. Are you maybe commenting on the color of the pistils overall, or are you looking through a loupe at the actual trichomes?

I’m eyeballing it. This is my first outdoor and 2nd grow so I don’t have magnifier to look through. I feel like most needs more time but there a few that are more amber lower on the branches. I was going to cut, dry and cure those but I wasn’t sure if I should wait for the larger colas.

Cool, thanks for the advise. I was hoping I didn’t have to wait until the larger colas full matured. Plus I want to get it ready to try out :smokin2:

oftentimes some of the lower buds finish up before the top, simply because they are not getting as much light. It is ok to chop some of that, but don't do so much that you stress out the plant right at its fastest growing point. And yes, wait for the top buds to mature out before the chop... im betting you still have at least 10 days to go.
