First grow in ages

Day 52 from flip, call it week 7 of flowering. Advertised flowering period is 60-75 days. By the looks of the pistil color, they are getting close. They've been 80-90% brown for a week, with pheno 2 leading the way by at least a week. I have seen no amber trichs, not even one. Trichs are 80-90% cloudy. I'm going to wait at least a week. Pheno 2 will be coming down first.
Temps are still cool and dry (70/60, 30% RH), with a large portion of the day spent in the 60s. Takes a few hours to get the temp up to 70. I don't want to spend money on heating the room, so will ride it out. Water consumption is down, from 1.5 gal/3 days to 1.5gal/5 days. Feeding full strength MC with 1/4 calmag. Not sure if I need the calmag, but added it as a precaution. Not going to try to strip chlorophyll with a flush or by stopping nutrients - I'll take care of that with the cure.
I just wanted to chime in and compliment you on your journey back into growing. Your plants look good, very good. I can tell you have a very solid understanding of growing, all of your fundamentals were on point. Doesn't look like you forgot too much since the 90's. respect.

Maybe look into adding beneficial microbes on your next go-round. I took nearly a decade off and just got back into the hobby last year, having soil full of living microbes is what took my plants to the next level.

Thanks! Tried some new stuff, some things worked out, others not so much. I've been considering DIY mycorrhizae once spring rolls around. Will do a worm bin, too. Also, going to reuse the soil, so your comment on beneficial microbes fits right in.

Last pictures prior to harvest. These shots were taken after one plant was chopped. Brought all five in over the course of 10 days. Pheno 1 was definitely slower, but I think will yield more. I could have left the two under the lamp for another week, but don't want to use the electricity for just two plants.
