First grow...newbie questions

How long do you think your containers will last until they are dry? Before we knew enough to use jewelers loupes and look at the deep trikes, we used the pistils as an indicator. Observation (and remember, this is an observation…my opinion, what I would do if they were mine)…WAIT…I still see opportunity for buds to THICKEN. I do not know enough about your: strain, grow environment and WHAT NUTRIENTS you used to get them this far. I am a fan of organic…If I used synthetic nutrients, I would want 2 weeks of CLEAN FRESH water to get that out. The worst you can do is kill her now…mixed head,decent size…the best you can do is almost get another 50% thickness, more terpene development which will result in a primo bud.
I would look at the plus side, the minus side and determine what I would do. Do you like energetic, couch or mixed? You harvest based on what you want to achieve. You control the plant, it does not control you…to a point

I typically water when top 1 inch of soil feels dry… This has worked out to about every 3rd day…

I am using a 2X2X4 tent, Mars Hydro TS600, organic compost for soil and “Fox Farm” trio for nutrients.

Not particular, nor am I a big toker…just wanted to grow big buds!

if you desire BIG BUDS…let her grow…
fox farm trio has 2 types…soil or hydro…which one?
also, unless stated ORGANIC…they are synthetic nutrients. When that is the case, I flush for minimum a week, best 2 weeks…a real flush, not just heavy watering. Read up on flushing techniques
Unless you do not care about the taste and harshness that comes from synthetics…then just let her flower,start letting her dry out as you get closer to harvest…2 days darkness and CUT

BTW…those are some NICE LOOKING BUDS!

the nutes are the ones for soil grows

Ph probably off and nitro deficiency.

Sweet Nugget!

It only takes a spot too much of N during flower, especially late flower, to halt the growth of flowers…I agree with the ph part but not so sure about N this late in the game. I would ask more opinions

I think i was talking about a seed i found on floor, beans cost $20+, so i did 2 major no nos, i transplanted it, could not get ffof so put it in miricle grow, all autos yellow a bit in late flower but plant was nitro starved, when this happens in flower a few bottom leaves will start to yellow they fell paper y usaley a handful of fresh pearlite or a dose of food will correct the problem but you want to check your ph runoff, my runoff was 7+ bc of the mix so i kept lowering it with white vinegar, plant came out much better then expected allso have a toofless alien i gave a dose of food in flower bc a few bottom leaves were yellowing see pic unknown auto in miricle grow 1 & 2
