I follow a lot of threads, so many in fact that there is no way that I can daily keep up with all the threads I have touched. I did miss this call for help when it was first issued but quickly came in when I saw that @420 had requested our assistance in this matter. I do want it known that if ANYONE wants my help or my opinion and gives me a call by @tagging me, on any thread, I will always come running and will devote my full time and attention to your issue until it is resolved. This is how I have always done it and as long as I am able to, I always will. That, after all, is what family does for one another and we are indeed a family here at 420 Magazine, like none other.

At quick first glance, my suggestion would be to check for spider mites if nutrients are in order. My northern lights used to get hit by mites and would normally have a similar look, check on the greener leaves that are just barely getting the spotted brown marks, if they’re present, that’s where they will be most easily seen, the yellower leaves usually have already had damage done and they move on to the next set of leaves after that. I’ve found they go for middle/lower growth over new top growth. Hopefully not the case but something is be looking at with a close eye for sure.

Harvest...Now or Later?! Big update post. Link below.
Damage Control Harvest Situation

Botritus and Caterpillars...I need to incorporate a better solution before next season. Urgh...




Due to how far along the rot has been able to advance, personally for me, that would indicate harvest before losing more of the plant.. I have a few plants in my greenhouse and they’re getting chopped this weekend due to the high humidity levels, rot is starting to get some sections of the plants.. my big plant that I was expecting 3+ pounds from I’ll be lucky to save a pound from, and due to how early I need to cut, it won’t be worth selling off, I do have plenty of smoke from indoors though soo I guess this year I’ll have a massive batch of bubble hash :hmmmm:

What an amazing journey we are on together, showcasing everyone's different styles and processes!

I've been watching everyone's journals, a few of you have already finished and are drying/curing now.

There are still some of you getting started, had some issues and started again, or expanded into growing more.

I'll be making congratulatory rounds soon, and we'll start checking and moving them to completed soon.

How many of you are in or close to NorCal for a taste test and smoke out with some of us maybe in a month or two?
Mannnnnn, I wishhh I lived even remotely close to there, simply participating in this comparative grow was amazing in itself, having the opportunity to have a smoke sesh with the founder and other members would be on a whole other level of awesomeness! If there’s ever a get together in the New England area however, I’ll figure a way to make it there!:lot-o-toke::lot-o-toke:

Happy Monday! My pre press finally showed up so I smashed some of my GSC that was curing. I've done two runs now and it seems like a great nug for rosin. The chocolate fragrance is way stronger after I pressed it.

I haven't tried any yet but I'll probably spread some on a joint of GSC tonight. I didn't weigh the puck or resulting rosin as I need a digital scale but I'm happy just by looking at it.

You’re an inspirado. Rosin really concentrates the flavours doesn’t it?
It looks so yummy.

That's awesome! Looks so yummy! I got one of those pre-presses too. I want to try it and my press already! Just got it setup last night finally.

How "ready" were the buds you took out from the cure jar to press? Im chomping at the bit to give it a go but not sure what grade the flower should be to be pressed.

Also, I picked up a really good digital scale with 0.00 gram resolution for less than $20 on Amazom. I MIGHT have another cheaper one laying around if you want it. LMK

I would say the buds I pressed were pretty ready. I'd have to look back and see how long they have been curing but safe to say 2+ weeks. I am almost done harvesting my last GSC and I really want to press that one. It smells like what I remember pink starbursts smell like so I am curious to see how it dries and cures. I appreciate the offer but ill just pick one up here locally next time I'm out and about. I really need to get a vaporizer so I can start enjoying it!

Some quick pics of some buds I cut down a couple days ago but wasn't able to finish trimming. They've been in the fridge the whole time. This GSC is so damn sticky! This is from #8, the outdoor plant at an estimated 56 days of bloom. I butchered some of these buds but in the end, it is worth it to ensure there isn't any mold. Into the fridge they go!

Hey @BakedARea I have used SNS244C with great success in controlling Powdery mildew and bud rot this year. I give them a good spraying of it every few days or a couple times a week in the evenings. I use a 1 gallon power sprayer and it has worked great. I even picked up their 5 gallon bucket of it so I can apply it regularly to everything. Safer has worked well for controlling pretty much every soft body bug I have seen. Good luck and congrats on your harvest!

question about pressing vs infusing in oil ... does the bud need to be conditioned/cured prior to decarbing/pressing or is it usable as is?

Hey. I think you only need to decarb the flower if you are infusing your oil and want the effects. If you pressing for rosin, you don't decarb. You do it afterward IF you want to use I for capsules, edibles, etc.

I hope I answered this correctly for you. If not, we'll get some schooling soon I'm sure. Haa haa. Take care.
