You said she was @ 8 weeks when you posted. That’s the window for your harvest.

My goal is to take the stress out of a grow. Watch this video.

The conclusion I came to is that there is a 3 week period where your grow is @ 92-100% potency. So, if the plant is mature @ 8 weeks (like your’s), and has a 26% THC content (like your’s) and you harvest a week early, you’re getting about 24% THC. If you harvest late (say week 9) you’re still getting about 25% (with the drop off continuing as the plant matures).

Yes last post was at 8 weeks when showed yesterday she hit 9 weeks everything seems fine to harvest just being on the cautious end

8 weeks flower or 8 weeks since sprout?

9 weeks yesterday since sprout as these are autos from my understanding they veg a fully flower 8-10 weeks altogether I could be wrong but that’s what I understood from reading.

I don’t know how accurate that is. The thc doesn’t come in fully mature. It takes weeks for that to happen. Harvesting early stops the maturation of the trichomes. It doesn’t matter how frosted your plant is, if you harvest too early, it won’t be potent. Another issue from harvesting immature trichomes is an amplification of what are often considered negative effects of Marijuana, paranoia, anxiety, restlessness, etc. Not to be confused with the energizing feelings from smoking sativa’s.

That is not correct. The flowering time is 8 weeks. That starts after flowering begins. Usually looks something like this with auto’s
1 weeks seedling phase
2-4 weeks vegging phase
7-10 days preflower
8-10 weeks flowering
Harvest when….


ILGM lists seeds by flowering time, Seedsman for example lists there’s from germination.
Also, those times are just a guideline. In order to match the breeders time you would need to duplicate their process. Same environment, same nutes, same timing and training, same lights, you catch my drift.

It’s weeks of flower. When did you notice the preflowers?

I’ve gotten myself into a pickle now I’m confused lol Sheesh I’ve misunderstood.

you all are life savers and I truly appreciate you all! so to my understanding I’m 4 weeks in to flowering just about. So I have near another 4 weeks to go if I’m understanding you correctly that would be 8 full weeks of flowering.

My bust. I wasn’t paying attention to the pictures past they looked healthy. You weren’t asking about harvest and today I assumed you meant 8th week of flower. Looking back at them, I’d say you have somewhere between 3-5 weeks until the plant is ready. Check your trichomes regularly and watch how they change. The max THC will come when the trichs on the bud (not the sugar leaves) start turning amber.

For a better reference:

Started flowering roughly 32 days ago….so this is a halfway point and yours is further than this…just watch your tricomes




Looking at yours compared to this it’s easy to see you have maybe 2 weeks…maaaaybe 3…just watch your trichs
