  1. I vaguely remember readng about putting a plant in a few days of complete darkness before harvesting. Does doin this make the plant release the last of its goodness? or did i just make it up. somtimes its hard to remember lol.
  2. 48 hours will increase resin production. The plant can be in complete darkness, or a little bit of light hitting it like a 60 watt incandescent pretty far away, or a corner of a dark room that has some sunshine creeping through a crack from the window.

    What is does is stresses the plant, causing it to increase resin. Resin is like their armor, so they'll try to produce more to protect themselves as much as possible.

    Also, if it's your first time growing a certain strain, you probably won't notice. You'll notice if you've been growing a strain for a while, and compare it under magnification with your other crops.
