What can you tell us about trichome ratios? Clear %? Cloudy %? Amber %? You'll need a 30x-60x magnifier to see them clearly. Look at trichomes on the buds, not the sugar leaves. You can also use binoculars backwards, this has worked for some growers without a scope.
Looks early to me, Shmeeze. Most of the pistils are still white i think? Wait until more of them are shriveled and receding into the calyxes and the buds puff up. 1 or 2 weeks and they will have put on a lot of weight I would wager.
lol. grow lights play havoc with colors. If you have a high res camera, and you take a close up shot of a bud, when you view it on a large screen and zoom in, it can be fairly useful for detecting colors.
just two or three dots of amber on this top. I harvested anyway.
IMHO, I would guess you are at 2 weeks out. No amber trichs that I can discern. And although the pistils are turning red, I don't see any of them shriveling and receding into the calyxes so no bud swell is apparent. I think they will double in weight in 2 weeks if you wait. Others with more experience than myself might offer more words of wisdom, but this is my take on it. :21: :9:
