This is a CBD White widow approaching 8 weeks of flowering (indoor grow, 12/12, 1000w LED, fox farms trio and flowering powders). i did a lot of LST, but didn’t do enough to create a proper canopy so now the lower branches and buds don’t get enough light. the top colas still show mostly clear trichomes, and the buds aren’t very fat/dense, but based on time and the color of the trichs, i think i will need to flush/harvest soon. note: i’m not in a huge hurry.
some say you can harvest “some” mature buds and let the lower buds continue to fatten up… others say the stress may kill the plant. also, if i flush for 2 weeks before cutting a couple of colas, will the rest of the plant be ok without nutrients during that time? maybe it makes sense to cut some buds without flushing, then flush before the final harvest?
would love to hear thoughts and suggestions. thanks.
