Advice on whether to harvest

So these guys (Sour Diesel) are at week 7.5 of flowering. I am around for another week then gone for 3 weeks. Per Royal Queen Seeds they say 10-11 weeks of flowering.

I have two choices… to harvest it next week or to wait until next month at which point I will be at week 12… the other downside is I won’t be here to feed or keep an eye on them.

What would you suggest? I attached several pics so you can see where they are now.

As always, THANK YOU.

If you could gear up some way to water and feed i think they’d benefit from the extra growing time. :+1:


That plant will be better at 12 weeks than 8.


You have 3 to 4 weeks left IMO.

FYI don’t look at sugar leaves to determine how close to harvest you are.


OK so as far as watering I would be OK but nobody will be able to give it nutrients for 20 days.


The thing I am afraid of is if something goes wrong I lose both plants.

One way to look at it is this: If you do like most people, you would be giving it a cleansing of plain water for the last 14 days anyway. In your case, it would just be an additional 6 days. Give it a hearty feeding right before you leave, plain water thereafter and I think you will come back to find a plant that survived just fine consuming the food within its soil and fan leaves.

Yeah no more nutes maybe some molasses or yucca extract bit very light waterings but you definitely will benefit from a few more weeks then give it two days no light before you harvest
