These are the tops of my girls today
Looking good not bad at all... Good job keeping them green also
Thanks mate,I've started flushing them now so hopefully only a couple more weeks to go
Maybe even three u really don’t have to flush just feed a little less ...IMO I give water the last 2 watering but I don’t flush everything out as there last two or three weeks is when they start to swell so u don’t wanna starve her...IMO
Interesting,I'm not a very experienced grower and I was always told to flush for the last 2 weeks.
What would you recommend I do?
They are in 10 litre pots and I give them a litre of water each everytime I feed them.
I'm using canna terra Flores,how much nutes do you think I should give them now?
Also I bought a jewellers loupe today and just looked at the trichomes quickly on one plant and they still look clear.
I only had a quick look but will examine them all properly in a little while
Keep feeding if they are still clear they ain’t ready maybe three weeks still than I look for a few amber and by the time u start curing it will be good to go... What ever your using for nutes give them a third of what u we’re giving them .. As far as flush or not to flush that’s a big debate on here but when the plant goes to sleep all the nutes go to the roots for the next day so when it wakes up it goes from roots to the plant IMO there is no need to flush bro just chop before lights come on .. I leave mine in the dark for a day and a night than I chop to make sure it has no nutes ... But I give my plants water the last 2-4 watering just normal amounts to “flush” is to give them a shit load of water more than normal.....
Thanks mate that's helped me a lot.
One more quick question lol,once I've chopped them down I was going to hang them in my tent with a small fan oscillating at the bottom of my tent to keep it cool in there but not blowing directly on the plants,then trim them once they are completely dry,
Do you think that would be ok?
I do both and Honestly don’t find a huge difference once cured. It’s a hell of a lot easier to do a wet trim and a clean up trim later IMO .
@Budley Doright is correct way easier to trim wet I do like that also I heard dry trim help keep it moist longer and keeps flavor better but I have never tried it .. I might do a comparison on that with my 707 Headband they are the same Pheno so it would be fair to try it out.... But it’s up to u bud hassle free or trying to get all the leaves off the bud once it gets stuck to the bud .. Usually when I chop it’s 4 plants so it’s alot of work which is why I do it wet but whatever u decide let me know how it turns out.. Congratulations brother on a successful grow....
These are the tops of one of my girls,the beer bottle in the picture is a large bottle
Looking good they have some size to them ....
Hi guys just a quick update,I've finished my flush now and my girls look ready so I've turned my light off and am leaving them in the dark for 24 hours before I chop them.
I was just a bit concerned because it smells quite damp and earthy in my tent.
Is that normal? Because obviously I don't want them to go mouldy and all my hard work be for nothing lol.
Any advice would be appreciated
Just leave the fan on in there pointed at the wall or down to circulate the air
Cheers mate,I've left my fan on in there and left it completely dark in there.
The smell seems to have gone now.
I'm gonna leave them in the dark until Monday and then chop them.
I'll upload pictures once they are hanging
I try to not go over 55% humidity and yes a steady air movement in the area.
So my girls have been drying for 3 days now,temps are 20-24 degrees and humidity is around 50.
They seem to be drying well
I'll upload some pictures of them later
Here's pictures of them hanging to dry.
Any opinions would be appreciated lol
I’m of the opinion, great looks good .
