Damn those colas look great. Begginers luck has nothing to do with it you've done an amazing job. When do u plan on harvesting? Help another new grower out and detail your trimming/drying/curing process please! Nice job!


New Member
Hi raisingcain thanks for the feedback . I plan on harvesting in about 4 weeks ,there is 3 weeks of feed left then a week of flushing . The drying will be done in the tent on string lines .

As far as trimming goes i have never done it so will need to read up on it a bit . Curing i have read up on and will buy some air tight 2ltr glass jars and some silica gel packs to draw some of the remaining moisture out after drying , oh and i will cure for 2 weeks .

When the time comes i will be posting up more piccys as i go too .

Other than that im just winging it and riding my luck haha :thumb:

thanks peeps but i need some advice tho on the mollases/black treacle usage . I did buy some treacle as it was in local supermarket . One web site that sells the stuff says its NO ADDED SULPHUR yet i read on some forums that it contains sulphur altho i think thats in gas form ??? so im slightly confuddled . Any advice would be welcome on this matter thanks .
