    Last days of flowering...need more instructions!!!!

    Hows it going everyone. I'm on my last week of flowering...i'm supposed to harvest on Monday (24th). First Grow and i'm SUPER PLEASED WITH IT...Am i supposed to give them total darkness 2 days before i harvest? I think i was told that, but i dont remember and i cant seem to find it anywhere. I've already stopped giving them nutes 2 weeks ago....they're on a strict water diet only, and I'm assuming the yellowing of the leaves is because they're using all the left over energy from them.

    What do you guys think? You can be honest...i can take it.

    How much weight is lost during drying? 50%?

    Thanks for the input pothead. I'm harvesting by time. The person i got the seeds from said its 60 days give or a take a day or so on the money....he used to check the triches, but said the difference in "high" is not noticeable. So i'm just going to run with it. What do you think of my first grow?

    I was just curious as to how your plant did the final few days without water. I've never heard to stop watering before a harvest (not saying it's good or bad, just haven't read that yet). Do you think it made a difference in drying just yet, or too soon to tell?

    To be honest, I would feel really uncomfortable not watering for a few days before, but I grow outside in a hot/dry climate.

    By the way, she was gorgeous! I would almost hate to harvest her that's how good looking she turned out. Have fun!

    its always a good idea to stop watering at a minimum of 4 days befour harvest as this helps the plant to use up most of the water stored inside the plant which in turn makes the drying process quicker
    i stopped watering 5 days befour my harvest and that made the drying process quicker by 3 days i think

    i would have to disagree there cause there are too many factors in the grow that will determine the high you get at the end

    the info on the packet saying harvest at how eva many days
    is only a guide and it could take longer ,i think the only way to determine harvest is by looking at the tricholmes with a pocket magnifying glass ,dont get me wrong you will still get a high with it ,thats just personal preference at the end of the day ,looking good tho m8 and that main cola is looking juicy as fuck i bet ya cant wait hey i wouldent say no to a taste of it he he he he
    cheers all

    Well I stopped watering it a whole 7 days before I harvested.....and the plant dried in 5 days hanging in my closet....it actually worried me as to how fast it was drying. As for my comment on the "high" not being noticeable...i agree that i should have done the trichome test, but that was another expense and I'll check them for the next grow. But the bud is delicious....its a stoney on your ass high, and its lasts a good amount....i'm very happy w/ it. Let me know if any of you are in the South Beach area and we'll toke...its on me.
