Dudes I need some help. My plants have only been in flower for 49 days and my grower gave 8/36 of them the chop. Isn’t that too soon? We had an experienced trimmer come in to help and he also said they were ready but how can that be? I can’t get a great view of the trichomes but see below. What are my risks/rewards for this crazy early harvest??
We switched to flower on Dec 4th. That was 49 days ago.
Critical Cheese - 55-60 days
Phantom OG - 55-65 days
Red Dragon - 55-60 days
Gorilla Zkittlez - 56-63 days
The Doctor - 57-63 days
Conditions were optimal the entire flowering phase. Gavita 1700e LED’s.
I’d have a very honest discussion with my grower about what I wanted. I’d wait for at least some amber trichomes. Those plants look frosty to the naked eye. The flowers will have bag appeal. I’m gonna go out on a limb and guess the person who cut them down on the early side comes out of a commercial (legal or otherwise) background.
