Okay, on my first grow, and with white widow I had bought through here, its a nail biter, I mean, I am on the final week and spent hours this morning making moronic decisions, but I decided that seems like all the pistils on all eight of my plants are amber, but the trichomes and only appear most of them milky on one plant, and that plant has some little yellow flowers, not many, but a few, so I gave it final flush mixture. I actually had anxiety about the other plants, I wished I could just start flushing them all at this point, where their leaves have been damaged, and some buds didn’t get as big as others.on other plants, errrr, differene between plants. So I had gave final flush to one other plant, then did some more checking and decided to give it booster again instead, I mean, on one plant this evening I gave booster mix, then later final flush, then I flushed out the pot with water and gave booster again, ha.
I am at two months right now of flowering these older plants(total age for seven of eight is from seed in mid February, and its October right now, due to health and injury reasons this year, a tough year for me health wise), and a few days over, but some of those days it got too cold in the tents until I figured out a different ducting method. I really plan on giving final flush mixture when I determine the pots dried out enough, like in about five or more days, or sooner as I view the trichomes.
I guess if I harvest too early that means probably not enough cbd? AS for thc, I could do with a lower amount, but I suppose if I go too long, it will be some real couch lock stuff, errrr, and my friendly neighbor just loves that experience, I mean, if he don’t get couch lock then he figures he aint done any cannabis! I was almost afraid I waited too long when I started seeing a yellow flower here and there, I been checking the guides and my books and they like just mention trichomes and pistils color to know when to harvest.
The drying process is what I am reading up on now, I mean, I bought a used multi tier chamber drying thing from someone who decided to just buy their weed instead of growing it, made of light mesh that you hang for drying, used once, but I am more familar with the hanging unside down method, not this “laying flat in a mesh chamber” type thing, …I mean, I guess they are popular, and maybe better I suppose than just hanging off a string, will figure it out.
Really, what I really worry about is going way to long and having my buds degrade and maybe a lost harvest, I mean, I am studying the “early harvest woes” scenarios,
