    Hi I’m wondering if my auto white widow looks ready to harvest ? Where I bought it from says it will be ready to harvest by 11 weeks and I’m currently on my 8th week; turning 9 weeks on Friday. You will notice in some of my pictures that my leaves look crazy; that was due to lack of watering. I was gone for about 3 days and when I got back she was all dried up. Last night when I got back the first thing I did was feed it some nutes and today I watered it down with some fresh PH tested water. My plan was to flush her for about a week or 2 more before I harvest! Also when I got back it looked like my weed shurnk from the lack of watering

    Nope- let her dry, give her a good flush, then give it at least another week. She should look fading of green chlorophyll/showing colors (imho, novice here)

    I was just about to ask you if tomorrow would be the best day to harvest ? I’ve been flushing it like you said and almost all my hairs are brown. I’m thinking I should just start my harvest right now.

    Should I wash my bud after I’m doing trimming?

    @Devon70 I can't say as I have never done it. Some people do and say it produces a cleaner smoke. There's a thread in here somewhere if you want to look into it.

    If your environmental conditions are good, and you're up for a little bit more work, I'd suggest trimming dry.

    And the dark period before chop is usually done for 48 hours.

    Otherwise, buds look nice and mature! bongsmilie

    Yeah I definitely had to replace that fan.. it was blowing my trimmings all over the place.. I could even see a bunch of brown hairs at the bottom of my box lol ! But everything is going great now I got the humidifier going outside of the box and a nice low flowing 6’ fan in the box now. Tomorrow should be the last day of drying then into mason jars for curing !

    Looks like you did a stellar job. Rinsing is definitely NOT necessary unless you have specific problems you're trying to correct. Spraying water on your buds as a rinse runs the risk of increasing you chance of mold which could ruin everything you've worked for.

    Give us a smoke report when you get a chance, I think you'll be pleased bongsmilie
