Im a first time grower and learning a whole lot fast, great to be here. ILGM posted a question here a little ago about if the harvest was ready or not. I posted another question in that thread that maybe got lost
So a little history, currently growing 2 plants of Auto Flower CandyCane. 4x4 tent, 2 galaxyhydro 300w LED lights, Ventilation fans input and exhaust with carbon filter, and an oscillating fan inside. I screwed up on the soil using a time release soil, Vigaro. Yes I know and probably why Im seeing problems now close to the end of flowering
1 plant had a rougher time than other barely making it. I was using Advance Nut, perfect PH, which made the problem worse…I did get some cal/mag in there at the end of Veg and it helped a lot.
So, yesterday not getting a good answer I made the decision to harvest 4 of the big cola’s that were showing very bad leave yellowing. They yellowing had gone to the sugar leaves. The Trichomes to me at least looked cloudy and ready. I would of liked to waited till I just started seeing Amber, but the health of the bud had me concerned. I know its not getting nutrients from the soil, from what I understand its getting them from the leaves and too much. The yellowing is only on the buds, some of the less mature buds still show all green leaves as well as the rest of the plant. So the plan was to remove the ones dying up top and almost ready and let the less mature ones another week to grow
Question is, could I left these on the plant longer given they are so yellow?
I have 4 new plants, 2 northern lights, and 2 super skunk…both auto flower following up now in week 3 looking very good in great soil this time.
