Harvesting guidelines for Auto-flowering plants?

Thread starter #1
I am aware of how to harvest regular plants by looking at the color of the trichomes. My question is: Does this also apply to automatics? If not, how do you know when to harvest an auto-flowering plant.

Mine has reached it's 8.5 weeks from germination and some buds just don't look ready. Ideas?

Its my understanding that the same harvesting timing teqniques apply for autoflower plants as well as reg fem and ruderalis.
 
same as a photo , auto are a race but a timed race of total light period , you can also delay a auto by any kind multiplication/damage , this will delay flower & allow the plant to get bigger .
so not enuff light not strong enuff also damage will delay the finish , best part they don't hermi over stress just take longer
