So i got the 60x microscope and this is what she looks like up close. Some are a little darker but not enough for the chop yet I dont think.

 

What do you guys think?

I would agree, give it a another week and decide again.

Those look pretty fresh. Just looking at it I'd say a couple weeks at least... but hard to tell from here 🧐. You want to check the trichomes as well, probably moreso, as they will tell you when it's truly ready. They go from clear to cloudy to amber as they mature, with the clear/cloudy producing a more heady 'high' while the amber tends to be a more sedative of effect.. more 'stoned'. You can cut it whenever your desired colour is reached-kinda thing.

Ya man good call. Gonna have to take a seat and hold em lol. Windy as shit right now which is good so mould doesnt grow. 

Question about drying. I was gonna get a wardrobe box and put it in the bathroom but my bathroom is pretty small. The air vent works to suck the air out and I'll have a fan on the floor so I'm thinking if I should just skip the wardrobe box and hang em in the bathroom....they should be fine right?

@colacody

That sounds reasonable. Get a hygrometer/thermometer in there and make sure your RH stays around 45%-50%, temps around 18C - 20C and you're golden. I usually weigh a big bud wet, and then weigh it again after a few days - when it's lost 75% of weight, that's when I usually jar it. Like a wet 10g bud should weigh around 2.5g after proper drying. Stem-snapping works too, but I find that weighing is a bit more precise. Then jar it to cure, opening your jars a couple times a day to refresh the air. I usually let it cure at least 2 weeks before I really dig into it.

@colacody

ask as many questions as you need mate. 60% is a bit high, especially in a bathroom, there will be more mould spores in there because it gets humid often. 

Try and keep it between 45 and 55% with a steady breeze around the room, but not blowing directly at the buds. Air movement is key, mould spores will germinate in stale pockets of air, keep the air moving you're less likely to see rot.

There is no good cheap way to dehumidify im afraid mate. Extracting the moist air out is your best option

Yeah, air movement is ultra important for exactly the reasons Macky stated.
