I'm at about day 55 so far with my autoflowers. I still have some time before harvest, but I don't feel confident about some of that timeline.
The seed company says this plant is harvested at 75 days. I know from watching several of Mr Grow Its videos that he typically goes longer than the seed companies timeline based on trichome development.
My confusion is here:
If I watch the trichomes develop under a microscope and they get to where I want them, is that when I perform the flushing? or is it too late at that point since I should be harvesting them at that point.
I'm trying to figure out if flushing will stop the trichome progression or do I just need experience to help me gauge when my trichomes will be where I want them two weeks in advance.
I also wonder how much it matters for me, as I typically will make edibles. Although, I will most likely give some to friends that do smoke so there's that conundrum.
