First time grower here, I haven't harvested ever. Working on a blue cheese auto seed that has been in coco coir for almost 3 months. I initially had issues with not feeding the plant as a seedling so I believe I stunted growth a bit, regardless she grew and seems pretty strong. I wanted to see if i could get help figuring out if I am ready to harvest. I believe the trichomes are not ready yet but wanted to double check; appreciate the help.

Below are the details:

Time so Far: planted into a 4 gallon pot on 6/24
Light Schedule: 18 on 6 off (I have photo clones so its for them to reveg)
Soil: Organic coco coir
Nutrients: She was on the MaxiGrow for first 6 weeks, now on MaxiBloom
Water: tap water, ph is around 7
Light Distance: 18 inches
PH Runoff: ~ 6.3
Tent Size: 3 x 3 feet
Grow Light: viparspectra 300w
Temperature Range: I have it maintained at a range of 85 degrees Fahrenheit
Humidity Range: started high around 55%
Ventilation: I have two fans running, one blowing near the plants and another exhausting

I'd say about 2 weeks until your golden. That pink in your flower is pretty nice!

When your cloudy tricombs start becoming more and more Amber in color. This is when your in the window of harvesting, depending on the the indented results your looking for...

At this moment if you harvest the effects will generally be more zippy, fast, racey type of idea.

If you wait till 25% - 45% the effects generally more relaxing, calmer, dreamer ect...

If you wait till 50% - 80+ % the results will generally be more potent, strongest, couchlocked, sleepy ect type of idea.

I'm not an expert and I'm sure I know less then others here, but that's how I gauge my own...

To me if your looking for 40+ % its gonna be around 7 - 17 days roughly...

Just feed your plant food/water and check every 4 days or so, it will make the time pass quicker... untill your happy with the % amount of Amber tricombs you see...

Very nice photo of the mail cola, colors are great. Good job fella
