Harvest weight estimate? My first grow

I hear you on that. I been watching and reading a few journals on training and scrog. I’m currently doing training and later will put a scrog net. I’m doing training so my 2 babies can catch up and show sex before I put net up also

They’re beautiful!
What nutes and what lighting are you using?

Thanks @nt3! I’m using Fox Farm nutes. The light is a Spider Farmer SF 2000. My journal is here if you’re interested.:

My First Grow - Kandy and Cookies

Let it finish and I think you’ll be around 4 ounces dry. Got 11 ounces dried off this one if it helps for reference. In this pic it wasn’t quite done.


Thanks @Dexterado. They have fattened considerably. I am planning my chop for 2 weeks, but may let it go 3. I’m having to get creative to support the buds.


You can do selective cropping. Take some in 2 weeks and than some more next week. That way when you also have different stages of curing

The only climate-controlled place I have to dry is in my grow tent, so can’t really do that.

Oh damn

Nah… It’s just a thing. Wife and I decided a few years back that it was time to downsize. Bought a secluded place out in the country. Only 1000 sq ft, but on an acre of pure Heaven. No HOA, only one neighbor, and it’s a hike to his house. But I can tell you that downsizing from 4000 sq ft to 1000 is a challenge. :exploding_head:

You’ll be glad you waited. I think they’ll get quite a bit bigger.

If they get much bigger, I’m afraid they will start breaking the stems! I found one snapped this afternoon. Was a branch that should have had a LARF bud on it, but that LARF was dense and heavy. In fact it was dense enough rather than cut it, I taped it up. Not sure if it will help or not. I may just clip it and dry it for a taste. I haven’t done that yet.

Added some support. Just want to make it 9/25 for planned harvest.


I think you hit it out of the park and if I did the dates right, you’ll be right at 9 weeks of flower. Supporting big buds is a great problem to have! Great job!

Your math is spot on.

Had to break out the bamboo for more support. Gravity was winning the war with the stems.


Well. Based on these, I may harvest next weekend. They are looking like one more week may do the trick.



(What a cool structure in this shot)


It’s a hard decision being new to growing. I suppose it’s one of the hardest because you’ve never seen a live bud this beautiful and you want to smoke it now! In looking at you trichomes, I would keep watching but to me, I still like your original harvest date.
Stay patient. You have a little bit more to go. Remember, after you harvest, you have dry time and cure time. For me, after day of harvest, I would recommend at least 3 weeks (dry/cure time) till lighting it up. But, I like to dry for 10 days and cure for at least 3-4 weeks if I can stand it!

Oh, I’m not in a huge hurry to taste or test. And I have allocated 10 days for drying time (if needed) and 3 weeks to cure. But I am basing “maybe next week” on the trichs. I prefer somewhere between speedy and couch-lock. And I think if I go 2 more weeks, I may be more couch-locked.
