So it seems like I may need to harvest tomorrow due to 3 small bud rot sections I have eradicated. (yes I found a third this evening) There is high humidity and some rain in the forecast for the next 4 days and I am leaving town for 2 nights tmrw. I don’t think i want to risk losing it all. The trichomes are looking good but not amber yet. It is my first time grow from a bag seed… Anyway… How much do you think this will yield? I have one 32oz and one 24oz mason jar… Do I need to buy more? Thanks for any input!
It will be at least 5 days after harvest before any container is needed. Cut, trim a little, hang and by the time you get back, you will have a good idea of how much you have, once you trim the buds. Plenty of time.
Easiest way to get a ‘good’ estimate of yield instead of a guesstimate is just weigh the limb when you cut it. Subtract 80%.
If you weigh the whole plant, it still works, but that % will be the end weight including the trunk and stuff.
When you trim it up look for more bud rot to be sure, and do a peroxide wash before you hang it to dry. In your particular situation, I might lean towards harvesting now, rather than coming back after a few days to find you lost a lot more.
search ‘bud rot’ or h2o2 wash and there was recently a video posted on here with directions.
But many on here don’t use the garden hose. Just multiple tubs for rinsing, with just water in the rest (or some other concoction then plain water)
I can tell it’s close to harvest. I’ve seen that video posted 4x today lol
Looks like 2oz dried to me… a half gallon mason jar should handle it
yea just saw that vid…so I tried it today… Seems to have gone pretty well. Harvested half… We shall see! I can say that almost every branch had at least a lil bud rot/mold AND, of those mold spots I’d say 75 percent of them had a tiny (sometimes not tiny) caterpillar hiding in there. Is it well known that these suckers are the starters of bud rot? Or do they move in later? I guess next year I’ll spray a lil neem on the plants or something…
Oh no the caterpillars got ya… I got hit pretty hard by them last year and yes they munch holes in the stems and then the buds start rotting.
Yea kinda sucks…SO i harvested half the plant and did the peroxide dip. They have been hanging and drying for 3 days and i have still seen 4 or 5 caterpillars hanging off the drying stalks! Did I not use enough hydrogen peroxide? I thought that would have killed them…
