atf strain flowering time

ATF way past her typical flowering time

So in early march I started growing an Alaskan Thunderfuck seed from an eighth of ATF I had over the winter (lucky to find a seed I guess). Around the one month mark (early to mid-April) the plant started to auto flower. I was psyched cause it meant that I didn’t have to take it in off my balcony every night and put it into my blackout closet to flower it. Now I’ve done some research and know that the ATF strain takes approx 8-10 weeks to finish flowering. Well I’m nearing the 11th week here and I’m starting to get curious. The trichs are about 10-20% amber, but the hairs on all of the buds are still white, with some having already turned orange. The plant has gotten pretty top heavy with some of the branchs sagging to their sides. It seems ready to harvest soon, but I thought for sure it would have been done by now. Haven’t seen TOO much progress in the past few weeks, so I guess my question to you is: is this girl anywhere near harvest? Should I start flushing her? I don’t care if I have to be patient and wait another week or even month, but I also don’t want to wait too long and not harvest when I should have. I’ve attached pics below. Let me know if you need any other info.

ALSO,
I’ve heard rumors (mainly from a specific friend) who says that Alaskan Thunderfuck can’t be an autoflowering plant. I don’t know how true this is. But if it is true then I don’t know what strain the shop actually sold me cause it was an ATF eighth that I found the seed in.

THANKS AHEAD OF TIME. Please let me know if you need any more information!
