    Question Cut off ripe or harvest whole plant?

    I'm sure I'm not the only one who has this problem. Most of the upper buds are ripe and ready, but some of the lower is a little behind. Is it better to harvest just the ripe or will it slow down the rest of the ripening if I do, or should I harvest the whole plant? Thanks!

    Smile I double harvest!

    I just cut the big buds and leave the little ones to fatten up for a week or two. Yes, the plant will "sulk" for a couple of days, but just water it and it will be fine!

    Those little buds finally put on some weight when they can get some more light once those big buds are gone! Just try to not remove any leaves unnecessarily. With a little care, you can remove a bud, but leave the leaf that fed it. Then, the food that the leaf makes can be redirected into other parts of the plant- hopefully, to your little buds.

    Smile Thanks for the reply

    Thanks-my med growing is time consuming and labor intensive, (expensive, too!) but I learn something new every day. Good growing to you.
