I am in the begining of my 5th week of flowering Ak-47 and Pure Afghani. I just did a nutrient change, probably the last one but I am in much need of advice to finish this up right. All input to help me wrap this up the right way will be greatly appreciated. The flowering times for both of these plants said 8 to 9 weeks they are looking awesome and I really don't want to screw this up so I have a few questions maybe I can get some help with. Right now obviously on a 12/12 light cycle 400w HPS. 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. Hydroponic Flood and Drain flooding 6 times a day. 6 a.m.- 9 a.m.- 12 p.m. -3 p.m. - 6 p.m. and 12 a.m. they are rocking on this schedule. Temperature 72 to 82 degrees F with Humidity between 38 to 55 percent but have been about 38 to 46 percent the last week. I have no light leaks and plenty of air transfer and major fans right on the plants. It seems to be a text book grow at this point but have not been without my issues during. Questions??? 1. Should I remove any foilage to allow more light to penetrate the canopy? 2. When should I start looking at the trichomes to determine maturity? 3. When should I start flushing with plain water? 4. When should I cut them off watering completely and let them dry some? 5. Should I keep the fans blowing directly on them? 6. At what point of trichome maturity should I harvest for a real up energetic non lathargic buzz and inturn a medicinally for severe pain relieving relaxing buzz? 7. What time of day or night and or on or off light cycle should I harvest? 8. Please if their is anything I'm missing please advise, I want this to be done the best I can possibly get it done for a peak thorough harvest that I can make the most of. Thanks for everyones help in advance.
