I also heard to leave your plants in darkness 48hrs b4 you harvest them that this makes the buds swell. if that is true, do you let your plants go dry and use up wat moisture is there or give them plenty water in order for them to take it on board to help in the swelling of the buds. i mean the 3-4 days b4 harvest.
