Touching ground is bad juju, invites pests especially outside. Even close to the ground can be bad. Pound some stakes or rebar into the ground then run some wires from one to the other to prop up the branches.
The plant is nearly horizontal with the wind and weight
It has three stakes holding it up, and after you mentioned it, out came the good old hay bale twine and it is now lifted up…how long do you think I can get away keeping it for a half decent smoke??? Actually shared some of Frida from when I did the bug catterpillar cut, and it has floored everyone (incl me) so I can’t wait to try it full strength:stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:…that’s if I didn’t mix up the buds from cutting some of Angus lol:rofl:
I would say they are ready unless you want a strong couch lock, especially if the evil caterpillars are sterting to enjoy them, you may have the same problem I had and I could kill the caterpillars but the eggs were still there and they kept coming back, I cut my losses and harvested early, was still a good smoke was just down on volume but would have got less if I had left it with the way the caterpillars were
I agree with you @Auspig …just gotta pick which one is the closest to ready and start there
Which one do you reckon I should start with for a cut and trim?
Frida then Beny, Frida as the bug eggs could still be in there and you don’t want them to hatch and lose more bud
@Auspig they all got attacked to a certain degree but glad you picked Frida as she knocks my socks off off all ready
Trimming jail starts tomorrow
Glad you have had some success, my plant is the same knocks my socks off and it could have gone another 2 weeks easily. Just didn’t want to lose anymore bud to bugs as last years plants were both male so technically I am a first time grower as last years were ripped out
A benefit of trim incarceration is if you have a trim tray that lets you collect your keif!! I love to sprinkle it back over a bowl!!
Love sprinkles on my morning brekky
Last year’s crop was dumb luck and this year’s crop has been a great learning curve
