Low RH is your best friend now, for a myriad of reasons including resin production.
With the dehumidifier, the tent RH is down to 38% during the day, but still going up to 55% overnight. I hope that’s ok, b/c at this time I can’t do much for it, except open flaps & windows.
Drill her! I’m happy with the drilling, I think it progressed her trichomes more quickly.
So, do it 5-7days before harvest?
Total moisture content is the same, day and night. It’s just that the temperature at night being lower holds a lower total amount of moisture so the % goes up. That’s the best thing you can do for increasing resin and of course stave off mildew.
Will you be washing your harvest?
I think you’re about right on the timing.
If you’re going to harvest next Friday then I would drill her on Monday or Tuesday.
I have been thinking about doing the peroxide/h20 wash, b/c I did have issues with humidity a few weeks ago, so I’m sure there’s stuff growing on her, even if it’s not visible/affecting her. I’m really nervous about doing it, though.
I am ready to try it, though.
It couldn’t be easier; watch the Jorge Cervantes video and you will see. He used a tote pan but I liked using a bucket the last time.
Here’s a shot of one of the totes after one plant was washed.
@Myfriendis410 I use those exact same totes when I wash! Lol.
@Myfriendis410 how much time does washing add to the drying process? Do you happen to have the amts of peroxide &h20/soak times handy? Pretty please?
I just harvested another plant, so I have lots of smoke. I don’t need to rush anything with the Amnesia Haze, so I am ready to give her the full spa treatment.
I just watched the video. Seems easy enough. And it really doesn’t affect the efficacy of the plant?
Not at all. When you see the crud that comes off, you’ll be glad
5 or 6 minutes immersed in 5 gallons of water and a cup of 3% peroxide. Wally World has the best price on it. Rinse the branches in tap water (garden hose) and shake/drip dry then dry as normal. I hang mine on a string under the Pergola for a couple of hours.
The smell released is amazing! You get a good idea of the fresh terpenes in your plant material. Peroxide has no effect on THC.
You derive an additional benefit besides the lack of mildew in your smoke: the cured bud stays fresh longer in the jar. It doesn’t “brown out” like most bud does within a couple of months. It tastes fresher too. I was repulsed by all of the crap that washed away from my plants. I had to change the solution out after each one because it was so repugnant.
I’m definitely going to wash her!
I am really excited about this Amnesia Haze! She looks like the buds I see other people posting about. Lol! Plus, this is supposed to be incredible to smoke. I’ve never tried it before, myself.
i’m getting stoned just looking!
mine are very similar as well…lol
i have found that the wash helps with aphids as well…
glad to say as of now no bugs this round!
Amnesia Haze is a great smoke. I grew some last year and plan on cloning the one I have going now.
