Just shy of seven ounces total. She smells amazing!!! Hints of vanilla, warm spice. Needs a bit more time curing but it’s seriously tempting to try a bit sooner than later

Day: 184

Cutting back on the nutrients and alternating days with just ph adjusted water. Plan is to begin harvesting in stages within the next week. Update, I’ve harvested a single flower, roughly 6g wet weight after trim. Drying now on a rack at a constant 70-73* F range . Figured it’ll be interesting to sample her on n stages to test the “no-flush theory

Day: 183

Started to flush her. Saw an interesting article @ High T about research into the question, to flush or not to flush…. Essentially both imperial data and subjective “taste tests “ indicated that there was no discernible difference in the flower that was flushed compared to flower harvested at absolute peak without the cessation of nutrients. Recommend looking it up, very informative

heizenberg Pretty plant! I read the same article or similar article a bit ago online. Discussing the color of the ash and blind taste tests. Flower from plants that weren’t flushed scores higher or the same in all categories. I stopped a “flush” on a couple of plants and noticed no change at all. My last two harvests weren’t flushed. It makes sense that it wouldn’t have an impact. I still back way off nutrients but I’ve stopped using any products like sledge hammer. I suspect the beneficial bacteria helps reduce the need for a flush and my experience in hydro suggests the plant is only going to uptake what it needs in light nutrients anyway. In soil I cannot see a linear equation to a flush and I’ve stopped completely. Controversial in my circles so I’ve not admitted it yet outside of this post 😂 Curious to hear your results if you’re thinking of skipping or modifying your flush.

kolchak707 Thanks for your insight. To be honest I’m somewhat on the fence and given the evidence I’ve read (& sure sounds like we’ve read the same article) my position makes absolutely no sense. I suppose it’s a case of …but it’s always been done this way. & after so many months I’ve become emotionally invested in my girls & don’t want to risk screwing it up at the very end. So the plan is to taper off on the nutrients except for a lighter than usual addition of kelp and a dash of blackstrap right up to harvest. Still not sure what I’ll end up doing with the other plants at this point but they’ve got at least a few more weeks to go before harvest

kolchak707 Thanks. Almost freaked out this morning, it rained over night and this lovely got soaked even though it had cover . And… then I spotted all the tiny caterpillars squirming about right on the beautiful colas. Just spent two hours checking every bit of her by hand, removed six of the little beasties

So, here’s the rig I’ve set up to support the heavy flowers as they thicken up. Heavy duty yo-yo supporting a network of multiple straps. Works well, so far. We’ll see how she performs when the buds get nice and chunky

Getting nice and chunky. Still dealing with dang caterpillars 🐛 Unfortunately the only way I know of to get rid of the lil bastards is to look for damage then dig into the spot looking for the culprits. Tiny suckers and hard to see. Anyone out there have suggestions?

Started the girls on a 24hr light regimen (about 10.5 of those under a full warm California sun followed by a 12 hr overnight stay indoors under two 1600 Lumen full spectrum FL bulbs. I figure it’s the equivalent of taking my girls clubbing under lights all night then hanging in the sun all day. Wholly unscientific yet the whole 24 hr non stop light fest somehow appeals to the stoner in me.
