Marijuana plant Flowering Week 6 Harvest Time is determined using a few methods. Knowing the flowering time of the specific strain you are growing is most important. This strain I am growing in this video is a cross of Matanuska Mint and Afghan #1. I know from breeding these that they will take 6 weeks to finish flowering. Using a BelOMO 10x Triplet Loupe Folding Magnifier, I then check the thc trichomes aka thc glands to see if they have turned from a clear color to an opaque or milky color. If more than 50% of them are milky or opaque, I say they are done. If you see and trichomes that are amber in color, then they are definitely done and ready to harvest, cut, dry and cure.
