Hey all I know this grow isn't impressive at all , I had some major difficulties all grow and these plants were severely stunted but I persevered throughout and this is the outcome , I have no ideal way of checking trichomes color so I was looking for guidance on when these girls might be ready if not right now?

Why do you not have the ability to look at the trichomes? For $6 you can get a 40x loupe that will easily allow you to see in there and you can have it delivered to you in just a few days. If you have a macro mode on your phone, a lot of times that will give you enough resolution where you can see what you need to see. My eyes are not the best, but I can see when the trichomes turn amber on my plants with my naked eye. Anyway, I zoomed in on your pictures and could not spot any amber. Your plant looks still to be immature and not ready for harvest. I still see white pistils on top indicating a plant that is still flowering. From the size of your buds I would say that you have at least 2-3 weeks left, and still are not in the final 2 weeks where the buds almost double in size and weight.

loupes cost 5$ on amazon, if you cant get one go by hairs.
when 90% of hairs are brown and receded back into the calyx they are ready, but its not 100% guarantee they are at the ripeness you are going to want.
if you cant spend the 5$ on a loupe, its going to be a crapshoot

Hey if anyone is put there in this thread , these are the girls then days later , what do we think? I don't want to harvest too late and risk degraded buds.

your pictures are pretty bad to be able to judge by, dont know if this is some kind of troll post, how is anybody going to see the trichomes on them.
again its up to you to buy a 5$ loupe on amazon, your pictures arent clear or close enough for anyone to tell.
you could always just harvest and then post back on what happened

:goof::sorry::reading420magazine::rolleyes:

Totally not a troll post , the only reason I joined 420 mag is because it seems to have the most professional and non biased members compared to other forum sites.
I'm just a complete newbie and the photos were taken at night, in retrospect probably not the best time to take decent photos.

So these plant have been through hell, stunted from the very beginning due to my noobishness, they are auto flowers from growerschoice seeds , and the genetics seem good , just inexperienced growers mistakes. I never give up though.

Sorry i just seen most recent pics. Missed those somehow. From those id say 2-3 weeks n the one says 60-70 days on seed box.
Look like a just a bit behind mine.

Edit: always better to harvest later. Those should ripen up in 2-3 weeks
