This will be my first harvest and I’m going with the ice bath and 48 hr darkness period. After 24hrs of darkness and ice (62* temps at the canopy), the buds seemed to have lost 1/3 of it’s size. I thought they were firm before but now they are stones. Is this what they do? Constrict? I have definitely noticed increased frosting as I’ve read will happen. I’ve read through nearly all harvest posts but can’t recall one that noted the constriction of buds.
Although it does make sense (as us gentlemen experience some shrinkage in colder temps), I haven’t read anywhere here that noted this as a result of darkness and icing.
