i say you should read the grow FAQ before you have some more questions
its at the top of the page right next to myrollitup
I'm coming up on my first harvest, and I don't really know what I'm doing. First of all, when should I harvest? The female (which is growing outside) has its top pistils turning brown-ish, but the rest are mostly white. How do I know when to harvest for sure?
Also, I have to be honest since I'm new to growing, but how should I harvest? I've heard of the old "cutting the whole thing down" way, but I kind of want to salvage the plant, see if it will grow pot again. Is this dumb? If I could salvage it, how should I go about removing the bud? Obviously I'm going to have to remove branches and leaves, but it seems the most growth is covering the main stem. Can I just pull most of it off?
This is the worst part, but I really don't even fully understand what the "bud" looks like. Are buds mostly just made up of dense leaves and pistils, or are they real "buds" like on other plants? I've only seen dry buds, so I really don't know exactly what I'm looking for while its still on the plants. Any help would be sweet.
^ I really have no clue why people have such a problem answering simple questions. I think it would be good if peopel actually shared personal experiences instead of being rude and just giving a link to the FAQ
the reason we point to existing links is these questions have already been answered. Being rude would be not answering at all or a simple RTFM (read the fine manual) but instead we add links to things that should have been read already....
anyway - here - these links may help...
When To Harvest?
omg just answer the kids question and stop fighting about the FAQ. Harvest the plant when about 35 to 50 percent of the pistils turn brown or red. Then you have to kill the plant, sorry, cut it at the very bottom so there is only like a stump left in the growing pot. Then either manicure the plant now and hang only the buds or just dry the entire plant and manicure after. i suggest doing it after. so bassically all you do is string a line across a room that is about the same size as the growing room, or just use the growing room. then hang the plants or buds up side down and turn the lights off in the room. give it about 1 to 2 weeks and enjoy your weed. just make sure none of the plants touch each other when drying scince this can cause mold
