Is my Autoflower ready to harvest

To be honest I lost the calendar with the original date but I believe I’m on day 85 northern storm Autoflower from msnl first and second set of fan leafs have browned not yellowed but browned from the tips down and stopped when I flushed (3-4 weeks till harvest) noticed to much nitrogen (long leaf tips) so I have kept flushing with 4ml of organic tea stuff since so close to harvest.
I know to much nitrogen give u dark green leafs which I have now my question, since my leafs are so dark will they still turn light green and die off when ready to harvest or stay dark green

Pic: don’t have microscope just zoomed in for pic of trichomes I think there getting milky.

Look at this chart and decide what you want. Then harvest when you see what you want on your plant.

Here's a visual of ideal times to harvest... I find it that timelines tend to differ as there are other factors such as humidity, air circulation, type of lights... ETC to produce good buds. Good luck with your harvest,

I wouldn’t necessarily preconceive when this plant is going to finish as a number of factors are always at play. Seems just a bit early to be flushing. Definitely shouldn’t be dealing in N right now, cal-mag and potassium at this point are your friends. When you start seeing some amber hairs lay down then you can start backing off the nutes imo. Use a loupe to look at your trichs and see how they look to determine the plants readiness. I concur with the previous post about separating the light further from the plant to avoid burns and potential fox tailing. Looks like your doing pretty well overall.

Hey Rookieforhte1tim, good to see your plant's flowering so well. I see what looks like lots of white hairs so I'd wait until they turn dark and others fail to replace them. But i use a scope to see trichomes.
I just hit your auto life cycle with @Atrain , below on Stoneotter’s post will help with your question!

I second this. I start to really look at trichs only when all the white hairs have turned into flowers or darkened cause before that the ripening process is still taking place and not over
 
Looks like some is ready, those photos to me seem to make it look ready. Download a microscope app on your phone that works , you will be able to see closer, and clearer. Ive read alot and i believe 25% amber trichomes on the ouside of the flower is ready, there are 95% more hidden trichomes throughout the flower that arent as ripe, trichomes exposed to more oxygen are going to ripen faster just like fruit on your table.

Hi. Welcome to :420:

Your girl sure looks nice. personally I’d let her run for awhile longer. No more food, let her feed on her reserves. The buds fatten up so much in the later stages of life. The pistols still seem raster plump too. Guide times are just that , give the lady more time.. she will reward you. They change so quick now..

The jewellers Loupe is a garunteed bargain. You can see exactly hows she’s doing, all over the plant.. nice crop of crystals, fellow grower. They are fascinating up close. .

Maybe you could flush the pot... then allow to dry.

So nearly harvest time....:high-five:
