@Mr_Wormwood @GreenSnek would you please tell me what you think as far as “ready”? Also, to go with that question, which part of the plant/bud do y’all microscopy for readiness by trichomes? Thank y’all, mike
I’d say it’s harvestable if you want it on the lighter funner side or wait a week or more if you want it heavy and relaxing
Okay that sounds great and thank you again! Mike@GreenSnek
Hello fellow growers, I sure could use some advice(once again)! I’m not sure what to think and going ahead and pulling them? Do y’all see anything unusual? The bud pulled apart in pic just very easily comes off plant and bud…thx guys
@Mr_Wormwood @GreenSnek @Hellraiser
I don’t see anything wrong, but I don’t trust my eyes right now. A couple of cases of possible bud rot that I didn’t see, so take my advice with a grain of salt
Budrot is a motherfucker@! This is only my 3rd grow year and the first time ive had to deal with this, PM being the biggest problem but has turned to budrot. At least PM can be washed out during harvest which is the plan since a few plants are completely covered with it and have been trying multiple remidies ( Store bought sprays, H2O2, Caswtile soap oil baking soda, wiping it off with sponge, etc.) and ended up fucking up some budsites that now have a black/ dark purple appearance and are stunted with barley any buds yet. With budrot i have been drying and cutting the affected parts out before jarring and curing. Biggest colas seem to be most affected which sucks because they are beautiful colas and even though I’ve smoked much worse, still don’t want to smoke that shit lol.
Your plants and buds don’t seem to have any noticeable budrot, it usually is either brown or has a white fluffy webbing appearance.
I know exactly what you mean! I’m just going to pull them tomorrow and not worry, and yet the even more stressful time for me, drying & curing…happy growing! Mike
@wilks5387 I had to pull mine today because of rot. Came on in a day. All washed drip dried. And hung to dry
@Hitman1811 boy that’s an all negative feelings coming with that especially the hard work…did you notice a large amount more once you cut and inspected the buds?
@wilks5387 none but it’s still really humid. Have 2 fans on moving air.
@Hitman1811 definitely will go all out with good dehumidifier when I start the tents and the super mix pk…I’ll run an ac line if I have to Bc no fun seeing all that hard work playing Houdini
Not seeing any obvious signs of bud rot, I’d try to go another week.
Ok thank you @Hellraiser, I needed that and boy that humidity does not mess around during flowering…within the week, no that I’ve done an ok size grow outside, I’ll be starting a pretty good size indoor grow with the super mix pk and already have tents, lights, fans etc ready to go and could I ask you for some advice along the way? I’m also tagging @GreenSnek @Mr_Wormwood, I appreciate everything already, thanks, mike
Start at 300-400 par and increase your light every watering you should be around 700-900 by week 3, lst , top,20/4 light schedule, defoliate underbrush,etc
