    You still have quite a bit of white hairs but your trics will be the determining factor. You will need to learn how to look at your trics. They will start out looking like a glass ball on the end of a stick and as they get cloudy they will look more like plastic than glass. Then when they turn amber they will have a red tint to them. You should cut off a little piece of actual bud, (not leaves), and get it on a steady surface and look at it. It is hard to see them when they are swaying in the breeze until you know what you are looking for. You will have better luck with them on a stable table under normal light. There is one thing we can't tell you. That is when your plants are ready because the type of buzz you want from it changes as the trics change. If you want a real speedy buzz that is more of a mind buzz than body but don't last as long then harvest in the early part of the harvest window. If you want more of a full body and mind buzz you should harvest with only a few amber. If you want a mostly body buzz that will put you on the couch you would want to harvest later in the harvest window. You will have a couple weeks harvest window and the whole time she will be gaining weight. It is all up to the effects you want from your plant my freind! If you harvest or even quit feeding too soon it can hurt your yields and quality. I feed until I have all cloudy trics and then I start a 2 week flush. After that 2 weeks, I usually have between 5% and 10% amber trics. That is just my personal choice! Your personal liking will be different! Just don't rush it and you will get it right! With this being your first grow I know you are ready to harvest but you might be a lot happier with your final product even if you wait another week. How you want it to effect you is something you will have to figure out with each grow. Good luck and happy growing my friend!

    Don’t do what I do and harvest too early. Appears you can let it go about another week or two. I would start flush now. Are you using organic nutrients or synthetic? You only need to flush if using synthetic nutes.

      Yes since it’s organic. The only reason why growers using synthetic nutrients flush is because of the accumulated salt buildup. Sounds like you got those awesome tabs from nirvana. You satisfied with them? I’ve thought about trying those out

    Almost all the white hairs should go brown/red and shrivel back into the bud. You should also watch for swollen calyxces and most important are the trichomes. Do yourself a favor and get a good microscope so you can really see the trichomes. It makes it easier to learn what you're looking for if you can see it clearly. I cut a piece of the calyx (heart of the bud) and put it on a white paper plate to check my trichs. I use the Zorb USB microsope but it only works with Mac and PC, not with phones and tablets. Bummer that but there are probably cheaper, better little microscopes that connect to phones and tablets. You can use a loupe, but to me the microscopes are worth the 30-50 USD. 

    Once you can see your trichomes well, pull up growweedeasy.com harvest articles and they will show you clear, cloudy and amber trichomes. 

    After all that, I say keep feeding because you have another 2+ weeks to go. GL!

    You have to check the trichs to be sure. There are no shortcuts.

      Exactly! Then you have to match their maturity to the effect you want out of your finished product. You will have to dial it in over many grows. Don't get too impatient and harvest too soon!
