    My sister-in-law lost her house. My boss and 11 others at my work lost their houses. It took out 1000 houses in 2 hours. It was insane. The planes and helicopters were flying hard all day today. The Blackhawks are here now.

    Do you trim the bud leaves to a nice uniform around the bud prior to hanging; and then when dry, proceed to pluck the same leaves from as close to the stem as possible before curing?

    Im baked, but hope that you can understand that.

    I trim all the big fan leaves before hanging. Pretty much anything that I can trim at the end of the leaf stem. Then once it's dry I trim all the leaf tips from the buds. The "sugar leaves". I try to spend minimal time on it before it's dry. If i can get it dried and bagged up then I can come back and trim it at my leisure.

    Needs more time. I still see a lot of new growth. The longer they go the more weight they pack on. ;)

    new growth as in white hairs or something else? this one is showing more brown hairs than another girl (different strain and supposedly an indica dom) at day 70ish that has almost no brown hairs at all yet. Both are new to me. I am hoping they pack it on, I am waiting, just worrying myself to death I will wait too long.

    thanks fade, hope all is well with you and yours

    should I have already started the flush or do I need to start it now??

    It's just kind of a "look" they have. The way the area around the new hairs kind of bulges. The new hairs still come in as tight groups. The leaf structure hasn't changed.

    I've let plants go and go and go with very minimal negative results. The worst I've seen happen is foxtailing and funky leaf growth.

    We're doing good here. Everyone is healthy and alive. :blsmoke:

    so remember this is early for a plant and potentcy increases if you let it go a week or 2 over. smells can decrease but .. if you haven't flushed by harvest you are two weeks behinde. best way to flush is let the plant use up it's nutrients for aprox last 2 weeks. if you get coser to harvest you can water with 25% run off. don't water too often. if you are not useing organics and or for some reason you use a flush product, use as directed or less strong, give the plants time as in days to clear out the flushing sugars n what not.

    Day 77 from switch, trichs 80% cloudy, 1% amber
    This is Gold leaf from ILGM, it's obviously the sativa pheno. I'm flushed and just waiting. How long you thinking?
    I just like to hear other people's two cents.

    It could go a few weeks, probably more. Some of those sativas just keep pushing out new growth. Often times the buds will start to stretch out though.

    I was thinking a week or two more also but I've got a small case of mites. I'm worried that they are going to contaminate my veg so thinking of chopping now. I just chopped this one... 20171107_095329.jpg

    Getting close here. Hoping to start seeing the change soon, I ran a couple gal of h2o through last week, I am not seeing the leaves change, a tad bit curling at the ends but not looking like it is sucking the potassium out yet. I am on organic soil/nutes, so not too worried about flushing, plus many feel its a myth anyway lol
    But should I water with nutes or just let it go, that I am pondering... Leaning towards no as of now//


    Just 2 small plants, the other is still a week or two away. Planning on trimming then hanging in a small cardboard box, and following the guides here for curing.
    I have had bad experience with paper bag, seemed to dry too fast. Could have been my mistake tho.

    Any input on this one, still looks pretty clear, not seeing amber

    I think the window is just starting to open. It looks done but it looks like it wouldn't hurt to let it go another week. It will only get bigger at this point. If you know what I mean. Looks really nice. Good job. bongsmilie
