Visually Timing a Cannabis Plants Peak Harvest

Professor DeBacco

Plant Parts to Consider
Stigmas
Trichomes
Size/Development

Stigmas
A female part of the flower. It is the sticky where the pollen lands and starts the fertilization process.
In cannabis this structure looks like these fine white fuzzy structures that look like a whisker.

Trichomes
Trichomes are small mushroom shaped glands that are responsible for producing cannabinoids and terpenes.
Coat the surface having a resin provides a frontline defense against fungus, insects and hungry herbivores.

Bud Size and Development
On a plant there will be variability in the buds on the plant.
The goal is to produce large and dense buds consistently on a plant, which can be influenced by light exposure to the bud.
To maximize production pruning style and harvest process play a role on the final product.
