Okay, so I am in the process of harvesting my first white widow grow, I understand all the buds that are larger and got all the light, but all those smaller ones, some not very mature, I see tricomes, and I try to harvest them too, …and it is driving me nuts. I have them all over the lower branches of a hermaphrodite plant I am considering starting the flower process in a small tent of its own so I can get some seeds experimentally.’’
But, I have six large and one medium older plants I am struggling to start harvesting, and I almost am to a point I am considering just getting at all known mature buds, ya know, taking some shortcuts, and those that received proper light, and leaving the rest alone or not trimming them up(maybe those are no good anyway?),…Ive even considered just snipping off the individual buds on all plants that I can tell are “good”, and not removing all branches,…yet, and just snip up the larger buds and throw them in my multi tier mesh hanging drying containers. Actually, I fear I won’t get all the buds trimmed up off branches till the plants have been in the dark for more than four days, …I think that is bad, somehow.
Ya know, I’ll likely end up with a considerable amount of bud, likely a pound worth after dried, as my first grow, and only cause the plants are almost nine months old! I think if I keep grows alot younger, I’d already be done or near done right now trimming and setting out for the week of drying, etc. What a nightmare!
