I’ve only bought from Seedsman, I found them before I started on the forum so that’s why I went through them. They always have great deals and you can buy in 1-3-5-10-20 quantity. I just ordered a whole bunch of seeds buy 5 get 5 free from them. I picked up Franco’s lemon cheese, gelato og, norther lights and received the following free that I picked out tuna god, white widow and some extra norther lights (my grandma loves northern lights lol) but it’s nice because I buy 5 get 5 so I can change it up and I don’t spend a crazy amount and the 5 free you can pick different strains. I like growing different stuff to see how it looks. I would get bored with 20 of the same plants
Does anyone else harvest when mostly cloudy? Super blurry picture but all cloudy milky trichomes just a couple amber… last harvest I waited 50/50 but I’ve read mixed reviews of when to really chop
@LandShark @Hellraiser @Ah-hee @repins12 @monkman @repins12 @LandShark @BigHuff2316
Im pretty sure its A preference thing. I harvested mine when there was about 5-10% amber. Its a slower process than i first thought. What I have come to understand now is this, cloudy trichomes are mature or ripe, amber trichomes are starting to degrade, therefore the more amber you have, the more degrading trichomes you have, but you wanna make sure ALL of them are cloudy and there are no clear and in doing that some are bound to turn amber. That is from a book I bought, I have only harvested one time so someone else might have more to say, but thats the info I followed.
I’ve read the same thing. But then I’ve been told to have half and half on the buds and then chop. But a lot of sites online show when everything is cloudy and milky that’s the best time. My largest buds and smallest buds are all milky so I’m assuming I can probably start the harvest on this one, just going to await a couple more responses lol
Good idea. I know for a fact in a commercial setting they don’t wait for that kinda amber. As soon as everything’s cloudy they cut. But others have WAY more experience. You can also harvest in sections and see if you like a certain way better. Taking some now, and the rest later.
Yes! I tend to prefer mostly cloudy, a little bit of amber is okay. I’m sure you know that the more amber you have the more of a “narcotic” couch lock kind of high you’ll get. I think I also read that amber is actually the degradation of the thc and the trichome.
Me personally, yes. I think that the trichomes will continue to mature some after the chop. @monkman, Am I correct?
I’m just doing it, fuck it lol
Thats the spirit, there’s plenty of time to wait on the next grow.
looks like i’m too late to effect anything. from what i’ve read i go to 10% amber and chop. because i grow multiple plants each grow i have experimented with letting go longer. i let one go to 50% amber and it didn’t couch lock me but i may not be as susceptible to something like that. i think the reason to go to 10% is to make sure all the clear have at least got to cloudy. it is pretty hard to really see clear compared to cloudy so if you get the amber in there you can be pretty confident.
I had some amber peaking through, all white hairs were gone and red hairs were curled in. Went with my gut and just tried it out eeekkk I always stress myself out over deciding when to chop lol
@Mirandalilian everyone is different on this topic definitely! depends on the type of high you like. I also think it depends on the type of plant some go through flower faster than others. I personally like more amber in mine probably around 40 to 50%. Keep us posted on the harvest! your buds look amazing job lady!!
Did the chop on 2 of the 3 blueberry plants. They were both at different levels but I want to jar them separate and see how the high is in comparison to what the trichomes looked like. Started my new journal and hopefully tagged everyone. Holding off on cutting the 3rd blueberry girl until I return from the hospital. Baby is making his grand entrance on the 22nd (or so we hope with an induction). Thank you for everyone’s positive vibes on the pregnancy and the grows!!
Ps made some butter with my first grow trim and these last trimmings. Decarbed and then did the crock pot method, so excited to try it out once this little guy is evicted
Here are some photos
Transported one of my 3rd journal grows into her forever home and have a lot of little beans popping up
Outta likes for the day. Congrats on the harvest. Outmutherfugginstanding
