    Did you ever get a scope to look her over real good? That what happens when you dump tons of water through your medium nothing left for it to take up it's cannibalistic now sucking everything it can from the leaves.

    like others said, u backed off nutes too soon. It takes 2 or 3 runs before u can dial in a strian, so learn from this and feed a aweek longer..
    It looks damn near done, like 10days off.. which would me u stopped feeding at exactly the right time.. Good flushed ganja and good organics will look like shit, come harvest time. You're plants should not be full dark green leaves come choppy time. but judging by pistil color over the internet, or even if your right in-front of it, can be misleading.. tons of things could of caused pistils to wither. same with trichs going amber.
    watch the calyx size. See the fat single calyxes at the branch unions? Those are the oldest and most mature. when your bud calyxes reach the size of those single calyxes, its mature.
    yes, some seed dealers nowadays, typically ones with chemdawg heavy lines, will advertise shorter flowering times. So u got to watch out for that and account for that. Err on the side of caution and slate at least 70 days for one of them..
    after 1 or 2 more runs, you will have dialed what is the right time to havrest to get bud that u enjoy the most. Flower time is, relative and subjective, for the most part..

    " organic plants" do not look flushed and shitty at the end.

    Right none of my plants in super soil look like shit at the end just nice and healthy. Chlorophyll breaks down during drying and cure.

    The bud is a bit more visable now.
    Because your leafs are falling off,photosynthesis will be at a minimum,so growth will be restricted anyway,just let her keep going until all leafs have fallen.

    Update.

    Full 10 weeks now. Looking ready for harvest? The leaves can't take much longer. I'd say I have to harvest within a week or so before they all die off.

    They're not ideal yet.
    Could they be harvested? Absolutely.
    Your sugar leaves haven't turned yet so she could still go a bit longer.
    I'd say check the trichs but you need a loupe to tell. Its a good tool to have. Less than $10.
    Once you harvest, you're on to the next steps. Trimming. Drying. Curing.

    The harvest day.

    I trimmed my buds and hang them to dry. Everything looking alright? The buds seem to very leafy but I think it's normal for indica dominant strains. How many days should I dry them before putting them in the jars? Humidity is 28% (I have no way to raise it) and temperature around 68 degrees.

    I know the harvest is small, but I only grew one plant and didn't top it or train it or anything.

    Also another question: should I blow them with my fan while drying?

    I am not the best master grower on here by ANY means this is just what I recommnd for your next go round. For your first grow that looked good imho but next time a cheap 40x to 60x jewlers loop will help telling you if it' done (highly recommnded) and a blue lab or Hanna ph/tds (ppm). You will simply be amazed at how much things like ph will affect how well you do in the end come chop chop time. Those are the only brands I will recommend to anyone due to bad experience with cheaper brands... looks good for the first time and seems like you read up a bit before jumping in head first. Keep it up man and I wish you luck on your next grow!

    At 28% rh they will probably be dry enough for jars in 3-4 days. Keep your eye on them. They will feel like they're too dry on the outside, but the inside will hold moisture. Once they're in jars they will "sweat" and be moist all the way through again. That's when your cure starts. You don't need much air movement to dry, and definitely not directly on your buds.

    Not directly. You want circulation just you don’t want it blowing on them directly.

    dont put air directly on the buds when drying, just use enough of a fan to circulate the air but not directly blowing on your harvest.

    I agree with Diesel. Nice looking grow for a first effort. Well done OP. Keep asking questions and keep growing!
