Cool! Looking for a screen now.
pay attention to the number of the screen, i think 110 is too coarse, you get a lot of plant matter, and 130 is too fine, i think 120 is perfect, but thats my personal opinion, others may like a finer screen
OK. I ordered a 120.
Few different blue dreams was going to chop now @ 36hrs dark but think ill give em another 12hours
ever get it?
Yes. I'll be trying it out next week.
In the process of making the hash now. What do you mean by " when it starts to take a long time"? Also, do you throw away the bud now?
i do a big handful at a time, as much as i can and it not run over the edge of the screen when i'm rubbing it around.
i run it over the screen for about 5 minutes, turning it and flipping it over. then i'll brush all that kief off to the side, and do it again. after another 5 minutes i'll probably have about half what i got first time. brush that aside, and then i go for another couple of minutes and get a little more, but usually not enough to make it worth the effort to try again. then i just throw that handful away, as its about useless now except as compost, and start again.
Did I wait too long?
I'm thinking when i start to get enough I'll get a screen or a tumbler and do like that. Then i think i can double my yeild by doing rso before i toss. And saving some dry larf and leaf for cooking use as herb and in place of parsley.
Finally finished reading this entire thread..... I have always hang dried as most normally do and then I start my cure, but when going to make hash I keep all my sugar leaf and I use the iso method and always have great results..... that is last grows iso extracted hash..... I. The end I yielded about 5 grams. To be honest I like this hash better then pressing pollen or cold water extraction.. it is simple and to the point only thing is to evap all the iso it can take around a month.... long time but very worth it.... everyone has a preference....
I know this post is old but can anyone tell by this pic of my plant is done? Trichomes have been milky for about a week and are now maybe 20-30% Amber. Its only 6 weeks into flowering.
it's not done. it doesn't look done and 6 weeks isn't long enough. 8 weeks is common for indica, sativas run longer. feel free to start new threads for questions ,, newbie central and general marijuana growing sections have people who will answer you .also recommend a grow bible and http://www.growweedeasy.com/
early amber is a good sign
Thanks. Yeah I didn't think it could be done this early. I hope she fattens up a little more.
Hoping you can tell me if she's ready now. A little over 8 weeks now I just don't want to chop her early.
now i can't tell. maybe someone else can.
maybe ask again with a close up. no one seems to be watching. i am thinkin of cutting a mini one today. i will leave it till morning and for at least a day. more thc can be produced in a regular day than degraded and i prefer a mature trichome ..
That's a little one. About how much you think she will weigh. I have a dwarf plant now 8 weeks in flower. Its about 8-10 inches tall.
mine'll be about 3.5 that one looks like 7. just guessing
That's about what I was thinking
