Final weeks of flowering

  1. I was wondering if it helps to reduce the lighting cycle by tapering it off towards harvest time. I have them at 12/12 now but will they produce more chemical substance if I go to 10 hrs on and 14 off for a week and then down to 8/16 then 4/20 and eventually 0/24 for the final days prior to harvest? The mains are about 1" diameter and 3'' long with a little orange just starting to show. They just finished week 7 of flowering. Any success stories on this?
  2. no I reckon this wouldn't help it, I would just wait until the crystials turn cloudy and half of the hair turns orange then harvest
  3. stick with 12/12 until the harvest is almost ready... then let them sit in the dark for a few days before cutting them down, to help with resin production...
  4. read in magazine recently that plants deprived of light for 72hrs prior to harvest can give increased THC levels of upto 30%
    cant verify at present
  5. Most important thing is to flush ya plants for the last week.12/12 works real well for me :D
  6. Thanks. I'll have some nice stuff comin' outta the ol' lab this time.
