This harvesting guide fully covers the two main methods used by growers to determine the right time to harvest marijuana plants. It involves looking at several different factors (pistil color, trichome appearance, overall plant appearance, leaf color, feeding characteristics, etc.) to figure out when to harvest cannabis. First, we'll show you how to determine harvest time by checking the pistils (hairs on your buds). One of the tricks that makes it hard to know when to harvest cannabis is that the growing period can vary significantly between strains.

This combination of factors means that you will have to wait between six and 16 weeks to harvest the majority of your cannabis plants. Generally, cannabis plants require 6 to 16 weeks of growth before they are ready to harvest. Only when both pistils and trichomes begin to change is your marijuana flower ready for harvest. From the moment you let your marijuana plant bloom, it takes some time for it to be ready to harvest.

Unfortunately for us impatient growers, harvesting at the right time is just as important as how the plant is grown. You don't want to spend weeks and months growing, just harvest too early or too late and risk ruining the crop. Harvesting herbs a week early or late probably won't be the end of the world, but don't let your plants live any longer. If you are growing the same variety, you will want to harvest all of your plants in the same time window because they will all mature at the same time.

On average, from planting to harvest can take from 9 to 12 weeks, but again, the time depends on a number of factors. Knowing what week your plant is in can save you the headache of making educated guesses about when your plant will be ready to cut. By starting counting from the first day, you will be able to know when harvest time is approaching.

Knowing the approximate requirements of the chosen strain may not be enough to judge if your plants are ready for harvest. If you prefer, I suggest growing strains that are known for these traits first, rather than trying to get your cannabis plant over-ripe by prolonging the harvest. Now that the buds are beautiful, fragrant and super blooming, how do you know it's time to harvest and enjoy the fruits of your hard work and enjoy your plants to the fullest? Generally, if we pick plants at this time, their effect will be more psychoactive, while if we wait for them and pick them when all pistils are brown, their effect will be more narcotic.    Show Source Texts
