A friend asked me if a partial harvest of just the mature top buds would allow a plant to continue ripening the less mature lower buds. Told him I’d never heard of it and it didn’t sound like a good idea but I would put the question to the forum.
I do it all the time. Never had any trouble.
Interesting, Thanks @MidwestGuy.
Agreed, a common practice especially for indoor. Parts of the plant will ripen at different rates due to inherent issues with artificial lighting.
Just like tomatoes, (or a thousand other plants), pick the ripe ones and wait for the next ones.
