You need to wait for 70% of the trichomes to turn amber to get the highest concentration of cannabinoids. Most growers harvest their plant at this time. The quality and concentration of cannabinoids would start to decrease if the trichome ripeness level reached 80% of the bud. The head would shrink and burst at a later time.
Will leaves yellow before harvest?
As the plants near the end of their life cycle, there is a shortage of nitrogen, which causes the leaves to yellow. You are close to harvest time if you are in the eighth week of the flower. Most of the strains that are commercially available flower for about eight or nine weeks.

The trichomes have plenty of time to develop if you wait longer to harvest. If you wait too long, your flower will become more and more tranquil. Indica strains can become sedating, even though they are not. The flowering stage will begin to degrade if you extend it too long.

What week Do buds swell the most?
The calyxes in the seven-week varieties swell to near bursting as the drug is produced. They are going to be ready at the end of the week. The caps swell with newly produced resin as the trichomes stand more erect. The flowers reach their peak at the end of the week. The smell is intense and there is a lot of stuff in the glands.

What should my trichomes look like when I flush?

The final product will be much harsher and more bitter if you don’t allow the plants a chance to dispose of the surplus compounds. Black ash and an unpleasant chemical taste can be caused by your product not being flushed.
How can I make my buds ripen faster?
Growers believe that lower temperature and reduced light levels can make plants grow faster. A method some growers use to increase trichomes and possibly speed up maturation is to lower the humidity below 40%.
Do buds grow during flushing?
When they are being flushed, plants do not stop growing. Rapidly expanding buds can be seen while the flush is happening. All are welcome when there are high levels of vitamins and minerals. Plants can take lethal concentrations at certain levels of the pH. The chemistry is altered and the pH is exposed to variations after the root zone has been flushed.
