Best Time to pull plants?

Discussion in 'Harvesting and Processing Marijuana' started by Kushqt, Aug 6, 2011.

  1. My lights come on at 8pm but I would like to get a head start on trimming so I'm not up late. Is it okay to pull the plants to harvest after 6 hours of light or should I wait until lights come on?

    I also was reading about leaving them in darkness for 24-48 hours before harvesting to increase potency. Is this worth it?

    Thanks GC
  2. doesnt really make a difference, you could do it thatthough so you can just harvest whenever. it doesnt take long to trim and stuff.
  3. Yeah, I'm just going to wait for the lights to turn on. I completed my first harvest a couple of weeks ago and it took me 4 hours to do one plant, but that included smoking a couple of bowls.

    The second plant I harvested the next day took me just an hour and a half.

    Hopefully it's quicker this time, the buds are also much bigger and the fan leaves are also less numerous and easier to get.
  4. yea good luck. i think we'll get faster n faster as we keep on growing because we'll know what to aim for.
  5. For sure, I didn't harvest today. I decided to let the plants dry out a little bit more and I just added a dehumidifier that I'm going to set at 35% during the dark period tomorrow during the day. Then I will harvest. They have gained so much weight in the last few days.
  6. yea good luck, tell me how it is copping down all those bushes you have. i only chopped three so far
