    Ido like the argument that nothing in nature has a 48 hr dark period, so why would it help?

    It does have a 12 hour of darkness, It just makes the trichomes more sticky,greasy and full flavour. The concept comes from the Fact that Light and heat degrade the Trichomes, so during the dark period the essential oils, Terpens etc build up and are at there max just before the sun or light come on. soon as the heat and the light starts the Trichomes start to degrade. From personal experience I've picked my outdoor before the sun comes up the trichomes are WAY more sticky and full of terpenes. Why do you think the plants smell so much when the light is on and the plants are warm cause the Terpenes are being released in to the air. This is also why I said that anything more then 24-48 hours darkness is pointless

    I have often questioned this philosophy. Most arguments in cannabis growing come back to "nothing in nature does it that way" and then i think...well there really isn't anything about growing cannabis that is natural....I mean look how much food we give them....Some rooms actually provide MORE lumens than the sun does. abundant C02, perfect temperatures(indoors at least) any others i'm missing? point being the right answer isn't always how a plant acts in it's natural habitat.

    I questioned it too till I tried it and theres is a difference when you pick your outdoor before the sun comes up compare to later in the day when the suns been out for hour. Honestly guys try it even with 1 of your outdoor plants and you won't regret it till you trim it cause it so much more sticky lol :)

    he asked by what measure did you see more trichomes, are you stupid or something?

    by what measure, as in is there a control plant that didnt get 48 hours of darkness, did you actually count trichomes, or just talking out of your ass?

    tried extended dark period and it just wasted two days of drying. I do however prefer to harvest around sunrise (lights on), I believe it helps retain that little tiny bit more aroma, plus it saves the lights on for the next plant to start.

    By what message has nothing to do with comparison he didn't mention comparison you're the retardedge fagget trying to sound cool saying stuff, why don't you define measure and tell me what he means you sound stupid listening to the voices in your head and I'm not even going to acknowledge you trying to say why I'm hiding shit from you guys. Just because you respond doesn't mean you're better than me

    Sure you're the stupid fuck trying to argue for someone else when this had nothing to do with let alone the fact that you don't know words correctly.

    You know this thread begin with people debating over this fact, if you did research you'd probably know something about the topic.

    How can you call someone else retarded and misspell it?
    Here's what measure means
    meas·ure
    ˈmeZHər/
    verb
    1. 1.
      ascertain the size, amount, or degree of (something) by using an instrument or device marked in standard units or by comparing it with an object of known size.
    How did you measure the amount of trich's before and after the 48 hours of darkness? Did you use your fingers and toes?

    Stick to eating crayons and licking windows on the short bus.

    If it was fact there would be no debate.
