Hello all, I’m a first time outdoor grower. My gals are finishing week 7 of their 12/12 flowering period, both varieties I’m growing call for 8-9 weeks. My trichromes are cloudy to clear with no amber. The pistils are plump and there are little to no white stigmas. My set up allows for me to cover my plants at night to keep them warm and dry during our nightly freezing temps. We’re expecting 3 or more days of snow starting this Sunday. Should I harvest one to two weeks early or keep my ladies covered during the three days of snow and sleet to try to get the remaining one to two weeks out of them for a full 9 week flower? Any advice is appreciated! The picture is from before preflower.
Welcome 2 the community. From the tag pictured u have they look young . I would say continue doing what u doing 2 make sure they survive. Hopefully in 1 week it’s fully cloudy
These are more recent, last week
Really beautiful. Love that color she has some foxtail. Maybe in a few days she will be fully clouded and you can harvest her. You can also do selective harvesting where ever you see fully clouded before the storm if u have some time.
Thank you for the compliment and thanks for the advice. You said some “foxtail” I’m not sure what that means. There are five plants there. The three in the back are California Dream, the two in front are zkittlez.
Thats a great line up.
She got some foxtail u can c her bud kinda start curling in
Edit.Foxtailing buds look a bit different from traditional buds because the calyces grow on top of each other to form spires.
Ah, thanks for the lesson. I appreciate you.
You did great job. Get ready 4 trim jail hope u got help. Also if you haven’t learned or heard a good bud wash would be beneficial 4 sure since it’s outside
Can you point me in the direction of what a bud wash is?
Not a problem at all. I personally use 2 buckets 1 for the wash and 1 for rinsing.
1 cup of 3% peroxide to 1 gallon of water in 1
Water on the next rinse it off.
This from my journal. So you don’t have 2 look 4 it.
All great advice @SilvaBack203 gave you! Another option you could do since you said you can cover them, if you have the option to put a space heater in there when covered could possibly allow you to keep them out until ready, but that depends on the temp it can keep them at. Also you will want to keep an eye on the humidty if adding the heater.
thank u sir. Got love this forum
