A question from a fellow grower:
I have 2 and a half weeks left on some of my plants but the buds are not thick or big like I want them the 12 weeks is almost up its supposed to be white rihno. Any suggestions on how to get them thicker and longer.I was told to go to 8 hours on then that’s it for the last 2 weeks and the last 3 days no light at all.
Shortening the photo period will cause the plant to finish earlier. Perhaps your plant is not ready yet; Or, It is as big as it is going to get. The only way to truly judge when a plant is ready to harvest is by using a 60-100x;s pocket or jewelers microscope to judge how far along the trichomes are.
Clear, Cloudy, Amber. You cannot always set a time for a Cannabis plant to be ready for harvest. Each plant has individual traits.
