Harvest time first grow in so excited like a kid on Christmas morning. I chopped one of the 12 colas on my gorilla glue auto to run a small test and looking beautiful bout 16 grams wet still 11 more to go and that was a smaller cola too. Trichs are bout 5 percent amber and cloudy it’s sure stick too. Just wondering how important is it for 24 hrs of darkness
You will lose about 75 to 80% total weight as it dries.
I was wondering how much it would dry out now I can sort of figure and end weight off if that thanks.
I think you meant to give 48 hours of darkness before harvesting I think it’s something to do with the clorophyl
What strain bro?
It’s a gorilla glue auto and I have a white widow auto the white widow the buds are so purple and fruity smelling I can’t wait yeah I’m gonna let the pots dry out then put them in the darkness before I chop the whole plant been reading a lot on harvesting. The past day or so.
They are beautiful
Many people believe that harvesting at the end of a light deprivation preserves terpenes that would volatize at lights-on temperature; There’s some talk about preserving THC as well. There’s even speculation that the deprivation shocks the plant, eliciting an increase in [insert desirable cannabinoid].
If the large-scale cultivators have data on this, they’re keeping it mum. 12-72hours or dark doesn’t seem to hurt the plants in any way though. Personally, I’m supportive of 12-72 hours, but it isn’t always practical. I think the drying environment is more critical than light deprivation.
I’m definitely gonna give em at least 24 this time around night do a 48 on my purple punch I have vegging just getting impatient on this first harvest
So excited first harvest is in the bag 390 grams wet so we’ll see the final number after it drys but beautiful mugs especially in the white widow the colors are amazing purpled and pinks I’ll post pics of them after
