Well I chopped 'em. I convinced myself they were done based off of the pictures. I figured if in pics they look like everyone else’s trichs that are done mine must be as well.
I could have waited a bit longer but I’d already started 48 plus hours of dark which I heard could cause herms as well, and this is GG so, although at this late stage I’m thinking they couldn’t have gotten very far.
I’m also thinking if this is supposed to be considered a “couch lock” strain, and assuming that’s at the 10% amber color stage, pulling a hair early may diminish the “couch lock” a bit?
I did nearly everything wrong with these things and they still came up fairly well and even raw produce a stronger effect than some other stuff I had around here. I’m just wondering what the overall balance will turn out to be if I dry/cure correctly.
I can say that one of the plants had a stronger grape smell than the others, also was a bit darker green and if I recall the leaf structure may have leaned more indica.
So they’re hung in the tent and at the moment sitting at 71/51 with zero fan leaves and most sugar leaves gone as I have more trouble getting humidity low than high.
8 weeks, pistils were 98% red and curled and in the pics anyway they looked milky. Go time.
