Benefits of 48hrs of dark before "the chop"

  1. Hi all,
    I'm getting ready to harvest as I'm days away. I've read that some of you guys and gals do a period of 48-72hrs of dark before cutting them for harvest.
    What does this do to improve yield?
    Sorry if such a noob question, just wanna get the best out of my girls.
  2. Hi
    I am also noobish. My first harvest, last week, I also applied this theory after checking out many other references and GC threads here. I did 48hrs and it seemed to increase crystals and dank smell. But, this could have occurred as the natural process of the plant aging. Also, you should flush it really well and then no more water before darkness.
