This is my first grow completely in DWC and it’s now going into the 10th week of flowering for most of the plants. I definitely need a little more definition on just when and how to flush and and then harvest. It’s probably personal opinion but this crop of 4 plants seem excellent. They completely fill my 3 ft square tent and hang out of the flap a good 6 inches when unzipped.
The plants have dropped a goodly number of dead/dying lower and inner fan leaves throughout the grow; had yellowing spots and leaf tips all along; and, all manner of other things. But they are still extremely green and vibrant still. I really want to try and get a better handle on the trichome thing before they mature any more.
My last grow (which turned out to be in soil) could have been a lot better. I waited and waited (AND WAITED) for trichomes to turn amber. What I wound up with instead was the plants self-fertilizing and a good supply of fem seeds. Don’t get me wrong, there was a good bit of very decent smoke as well but things could have been better.
Of 4 plants in this grow I have 3 that to me are extremely beautiful girls. The 4th is an extremely runty Gold Leaf that despite being about 10 - 11 inches tall is loaded with buds.
I haven’t been able to get the best pics but here’s a few that may give an idea of what the plants look like.
As of today virtually all the trichomes have gone cloudy. (But as I said earlier, ZERO amber.) Lacking better guidance or color change I plan on flushing starting in 7 days before harvesting. So I welcome all the input I can get to allow for the best production these plants have in them.
Happy Easter and great growing and toking one and all.
