    Hey guys. Got several plants going. Think one is ahead of the others as it looks fuller, rhicker, and has more red hairs. Can you guys let me know how the lot is doing. Don’t know the exact strains as they were clones my friend gave me but the first and largest plants looks to be done. Others seem to have more time needed. First few pics are of one I think should be pulled soon. Others are other plants. How should I go about harvesting drying and curing. I have another tent I could use to dry in if needed.

    Plant I think should be done 1st 3 pics. Other pics are of other plants. Help appreciated & thanks. I can answer any questions about the grow to help you guys help me !!

    Try get a microscope and look at the trichomes, if cloudy/white they're ready, first 3 do look done. Other two need a bit more TLC

    You dont need much. I use a crappy jewelers loupe and it works fine if i cram it against my phone camera.
    The ones made for phones are probably easier to keep steady

    Exactly. First 3 you can chop anytime. Last 2 pics need a couple more weeks or more.

    Pull the plant with all the fried leaves b4 it starts doin the same thing to your sugar leaf bud. Looks good to chop, her life is pretty much done.

    Why u flushing, save that for the toilet. You ever really only need to flush if u overfeed or are trying to correct a ph issue. their done, chop right b4 lights on. Looks alright but u def got nute lockout or problem late in flower from the dark grey almost black leaves at the new growth.

    Okay I chopped this earlier when I read your previous message. Any thoughts? Also what about drying and curing process? And the reason for flushing was bc of an excess of nutrient problem.

    Hang em in a closet in the dark or yah grow tent, have some fans moving air but not pointed at your weed. Try keep temps below 70 and humidity around 45%. Should be dry enough for jars in about 7 days or more. Try throw the buds in jars around 69%rh and then cure, burp once or twice daily for 10 minutes till you get down to 65% and then burp every day or so till u hit 62%. WATCH FOR MOLD.

    What if temps are a bit higher (~80F) and a bit lower humidity (~35ish) in the closet. Still have other flowering in the tent. I have another but haven’t set it up. Could I dry in these conditions.

    @PURPLEB3RRYKUSH is right. The larger pieces will hang dry for a week. It may seem like that is a long time, but even when it starts to dry on the outside, their is still a lot of moisture inside the bud. Some of the smaller pieces you will be able to jar up after 3-4 days of drying. Rotate the large buds if you need to fully inspect them for Mold.

    I'd trim them before you hang it up and then trim again before you jar it up.

    Okay sounds good. Buds do seem very dry and brittle on the outside now w little moisture inside. Feel like I could put in jar w no lid to make sure it dries a bit more evenly. What’re y’all thoughts on that. Don’t want to dry to much or have too much moisture.

    Gaver all your buds up and throw em in a bag to sweat for 20 mins, that will let yah know if moistures still inside.
