Details of grow:
In FoxFarm Happy Frog soil, using Dutch Master nutes (but at about ¼ recommended dosage until last time when I put in about ⅓).
Lemon Jeffery from seed (feminized from Irie Genetics). 75 days from flipping to 12/12, 68 days since flowers started appearing. According to the package, the Lemon Jeffery has a flowering period of 60-70 days.
As my first grow, I did a lot of “experimenting”: topping, FIMing, supercropping, defoliating. My plants should have given up and died. But I guess the phrase “Whatever doesn’t kill me will make me stronger” applies.
Now, the colas have continued to grow and become denser. But, most of the sugar leaves have become greenish yellow to yellow. The colas look really healthy and the trichomes are still mostly clear, some cloudy and only a few amber trichomes sprinkled throughout the grow.
It looks like I have at least a week or more for the top colas to ripen, but I was planning on a staged harvest weeks longer because I have so many popcorn sized buds. I am not flushing because my plants have been only lightly fertilized. I’ve picked a couple of colas, dried in the convection oven (@225F for 60 minutes) and let Hubby try it out. Not too harsh, considering and a decent high, but he agrees that it needs more time. But, except for the yellowing, the plants and leaves look pretty healthy.
My question is, at what point do I have to just suck it up and harvest everything? I water every 5-6 days and I’m continuing my low dosage of nutes. I don’t want to lose what I’ve been working so hard on! Thanks in advance for your advice!
