I have read lots of different things about what ppl do at the plants end of flowering. One question i have is, Is it best to cut her down after a fews days of not watering? or keep watering on schedule and cut when ready?

keep watering and cut when ready her last days are when she tries to add as much to herself as she can

Yeah, what ozzy said.

I'm shocked sometimes to read about how people "starve" their plants right before harvest; at the time the plants need as much nourishment as any time in the growth cycle.

But to each their own...

I like to harvest at about 10% amber trichs, at which point cloudy trichs are pretty much maximized.

I've never had a grow finish in the seedbank's time frame. My grows are always 7-10 days "late".

I agree with Jack.....The numbers breeders give are a strong cloudy...if ya like heavier than just watch them trichs


take care and be safe

I think that the trend of fading the plant at the end is just someone trying to copy an outdoor grow, only indoors. With cooler temps in fall, when an outdoor harvest would be, you will see minor nute deficiency due to the cold. Feeding the plant just water when it normally gets some kind of nutes, just copies that same minor nute deficiency.

I am so glad not to see a whole slew of people jumping in and saying, "Put them in the dark for 3 days and flush" Why do people think eliminating all light at the end will do anything? I don't get it.

I went in the tent today and it smells like stagnet air. I am wondering if I should be pulling air in as well as blowing it out. I have 2 9 inch fans inside one blowing up top of the canopy and the other one is pot height blowing under the canopy. I also am thinking that the end of the duct needs to be opened more. I have panty hose over the end to prevent bugs etc from getting in. I think it maybe constricting air from blowing out.

If it were me, I'd chop now. At 10% amber trichs, your cloudy trichs are probably as maximized as they will be, which means max THC. I don't like a lot of CBN (amber trichs). Just a personal preference.

Good job MoNo. I knew you'd be a quick study.
