    ok so here is one i have not seen a definate answer, best to harvest day or night, my thought i want to chop it when the plant is sending all its energy in to the buds, not the roots , also i had a plant and noticed it was seeding, i cut it down after 6 weeks of flower, should i have left it?

    well i heard "day" is better in outside conditions, simply because you dont want to harvest at night, when its moist, and bring that moisture inside or whatever and let that moisture rot your shit. , I guess you wanna harvest in morning/day when the moisture is gone, if that makes sense, in an outside grow.

    Inside quality, someone may have a different opinion. I mean wow, all sorts of wierd stuff to help assure or prevent a great chop. Also, what about that 24hr max DARKNESS period before you chop, I hear about that seems intriguing, Combined with the advice of dont water 3 days before harvest type of thing too, maybe all these factors added in with each other plus a few trick and tips more may qualify a good grow and smoke.

    I wish I knew more too man! SECRETS SECRETS SHHHHH........hahaha j/k.

    I wish all you pro's would get together and write a FACT / FICTION tales of the story of "how to Grow" here at RIU.

    What works, what doesnt.......I seen the Mythbusters thread. Had a couple laughs in there. There is simply wayyyyy too much information on the web. Some shit needs to get cut out. I see YouTube is beginning to be infested with just plain garbage.

    But then again, Im so broke, I couldnt buy the RIU book at AMAZON. Id have to wait till some kind soul uploaded it somewhere.

    LOL, resins don't go home to bed for the night! Don't worry about what time of day or night you harvest, just as long as the plants are ready for harvest.

    Morning is the best time.
    THC is degraded by light as most of us know. The light lowers the potency of the pot, its best to harvest in the morning
    Im sure its not that big of a difference but there is one

    I'll bet any money, you put the best, most knowledgeable ganja people on earth and get them to smoke a j of a plant that got cut in the morning and a plant that got cut in the evening, he or she would not be able to tell the difference, guaranteed. Nobody could tell the difference, so what's the point? Cut them when you want.

    Good point on cutting at night or at day break; moisture on the buds. I was thinking indoor the whole time, let the sun evaporate some of the moisture if grown outdoors.

    I think you are wrong
    I havent found any numbers but it could be a decent increase if you think about it. I just left a plant in 72 hours of darkness based on this theory and there was a increase in the resin

    You want to cut in the middle of the night or right before sunrise. At night plants send all there carbs and excess nutes down to the roots. In the morning they move them back to the leaves. If you cut at night, then all of these *contaminants* will be in the roots and not in your smoke.

    dude it doesnt really make THAT BIG of a difference...what you can do if you have several plants harvest each one at seperate times...and be your own judge...that way you will have the answer yourself

    Would the vegetables and fruits have a better taste if they were harvested at night?
