    Without magnification : wait until 75% - 80% of all hairs have turned red.

    With magnification : wait until all resin glands are cloudy (look like plastic)

    You have some time to go yet.

    :hookah:

    Like HashMaster said above, a little more time to get your red hair % up is a good thing. Your buds need to ripen a bit before harvest. Use a magnifying glass if possible as I've found that the trichomes to be the best guide on, "readiness".

    Mostly clear trichomes and some cloudy = uplifting high
    Mostly cloudy trichomes = stoney
    Amber trichomes = sleepy, not as stoney

    The % is up to you. :-D

    Looking good bud! I'm also growing auto ak from feminized seeds as my second grow. Mine still got about 4-5weeks left tho. But she is looking frosty can't wait to smoke her! Have you got a grow journal so I can see your girl when she is finished? Peace

    @bir123 Yeah bud you should get some journals going great way to get help and hints along the way of your grow. There are some great growers on AFN. Iv just ordered a 200x pocket microscope from Amazon for less than 10quid to check my tricomes on my first grow might be worth checking out. :peace:

    yeah man, just a simple 30-45X LED lit jewlers loupe is perfect especially if your eyes are decent or ya got correct glasses. I just got Bi focal's for the first time and theyre greeeat man!LOL but hash is right you got like two to three n a half weeks prolly going by the top pic imo,depending how ya like your meds.

    these are what I use. Love them and its really the only tool ya need to check your meds really.10 bucks i think.
