hi all,
just coming up to the end of my latest grow. i usually flower for 70 days irrespective of strain although its mainly indica dominant strains i do.however im currently on day 63 of flowering and im starting to decide when to harvest via trichome colour. its a change from my normal method but as im a perfectionist i want to harvest at the peak time.according to what ive researched a mix of cloudy and amber trichome colour is the best time to harvest. i use a 100x magnifying glass to check trichomes they are currently clear with a few changing to cloudy.anyone have any experience in harvesting by this method and any advice on when to harvest more specifically how long more should i expect to wait before harvesting.

This is truly a difficult question because it really is all down to personal taste.
Personally i would grow the strain/cutting a few times harvesting individual plants at different times to fined which harvest window works for me.

Obliviously multiple cuttings of a single plant would be more uniform in their behavior than plants grown from seed, so would make it easier to pin down a harvest window that hits the right spot for you.

As a rule of thumb the 70 day mark for "indicas" is pretty much bang on, strain depending.

Hope this helps
