Are my Buds ready???
Posted 05 March 2002 - 06:48 AM
How do I know when the buds are ready??
Some of the white hairs are going brown, and around the base of the plant leaves are turning yellow and dropping off.
The crown is huge compared to the lower branches. I think the lower half of the plant is lacking sun cause the buds are 1/3 of the size compared to higher levels. (plant is 6foot in height)
I know how to dry the buds out, I'm just not sure when to harvest. Is there a easy way to know??

I've read but never tested out myself that:
if u harvest a bit early, you get more of a cerebral high, more energy kinda high
if u harvest later (letting more turn colour) then you get a heavier, stupider high

So I guess another week or so then. Bummer...I'm hangin' out to try my first ever home grown smoke!!
Thanks again. Now I feel like I semi know what I'm doing!

I've been flowering under lights for a month and a bit now, and like mulli melli the 'pistels?' are just starting to go brown. I need to know if this is a good time to go to clean water and stop fertilising. I have heard they need 2 weeks of clean water before harvest?
Also can someone confirm what Justchill said about early harvest giving a different high, or is it just not as potent?
I'm really jealous of outdoor growers, i'd love to be able to grow the trees i have only ever seen in photos. Its f****in' snowing here at the moment!

This is the page where I read about the pistles changing
it is a REALLY good grow guide I suggest everyone read if they haven't =)

Look under HARVESTING AND DRYING and you will find what you need in the first paragraph or two
HOpe that helps

Maybe this weekend we'll give it a try!
I just cut off a whole heap of fan leaves, see if I can get some light down the bottom of the plant. They are hidden between the shed and the fence and they get f*ck all light as it is. I'd love to sit them out in the middle of lawn for a good dose of sunshine! But it's impossible at this house.
Yes BISH, I read in another link (www.overgrow.com) that you can get different high's depending on when you harvest. Spun out eh? I never knew that either..
I've never seen snow. But I tell ya, I'd trade the stress of having outdoor plants, to experience the joy of seeing snow fall!!! Now that would be a high for me!!

thats the first site a read when I started =)/.... beggining to end in one session (well more than one session of MJ).

We have(had) plenty of snow this year. i say had 'cause we got dumped on with a foot of snow this monday and it melted today. That's the joy of lake effect snow, it plays peek-a-boo with you. Buffalo gets it worse than we do though. they are at the end of the lake, when the wind wips that cold air over the warm lake its a snow maker.
Any6ways sorry to jump in on you thread But i been lookin for that nute info and was too stupid to ask someone.
Posted 07 March 2002 - 06:09 AM
I always sound like a dick. Asking dumb questions constantly!! But I don't care, I've learnt heaps, and now I have buds and it's all thanks to Grasscity members pointing me in the right direction or supplying the info I need.
YAY FOR GRASSCITY!!
Sounds like we at opposite ends of the world Zig864. It's 35 degrees today. No wind, rain or snow here, just burning hot UV rays pumping down on us. Dog is panting, cat is sprawled out on the shaded concrete, baby is just in a nappy, can't do anything with out breaking a sweat. Can't walk outside without sunnies and my feet always burn on the red paving. Oh yes, snow would be a dream....or I could just jump in that lake you were talking about. That'll cool me off eh?!!

Tonight is the big night!! We are harvesting!!!
Well we are going to bring one plant in and leave the other for a bit longer. It was a week younger anyway! It's all happening here.
Have six seedlings on the go and a grow box being made right now. I'm over outdoor, I'm looking forward to having a go at hydro's. Yee-har!
NO MORE WASTING CASH ON MJ!!

I had a smoke of some leaves a few days ago, and I got smashed. I was so surprised cause I hate leaf and it normally just gives me a headache.
It's so much fun growing, and then to smoke your own home grown weed. It's the coolest!!
Posted 13 March 2002 - 12:57 PM
I know what you mean about paying for MJ, when you know how easy it is to grow it makes me feel a bit dumb for all the cash i have spent in the past!! And growing is great fun. The smoke tastes sweeter if you know all the work and effort that goes into it. People started to think i was insane cos i'd spend hours locked in the grow-room talking to plants.
Posted 13 March 2002 - 04:08 PM
I feel so releived that I don't have to worry about cash for awhile. Why didn't I take the time to do this before? Damn it!!
I feel pretty smashed at the moment. I'm stoked, I'm happy, I've got BUDS! YEE-HAR..
Posted 13 March 2002 - 06:58 PM
I bet those buds will taste great. Congrats!
BTW...the longer you cure it the more potent and strong the smoke will be! So the longer your patience holds out; the better the smoke will be.
