yeah... check again for amber
Oh my aching back! I just sat and dry trimmed and put up in jars the Blue Dream'matic that was grown in FFOF. I didn't weigh, but I filled 6 quart mason jars full of good, smokeable buds and two full quart jars with less dense buds that I'll use for bubble hash or edibles for the wife. It's going to be nearly 8 oz in total, but after it cures for a bit I'll dump it all back out and weigh it. It was definitely ready to jar, the hygrometer from the jar I did this morning is reading 65%, so it didn't get too dry, but I don't think that number is going to climb too much overnight, but we'll see in the morning.
It's got an extension to bring it up higher that comes with it ,, it's honestly really good and has quility zippers don't get a tent with cheap zippersThank you sir! How are you liking that tent? Is it the lite line or the regular? I need height in my setup and that's the way I'm going to go. I think it will relieve my heat problems.
Nice harvest! Bud looks deadly!
Little too late now but i also had trichs that were not turning amber....and because alot of foxtails all over my buds i wasnt able to look past the foxtails and into the more mature trichs. I went from cloudy and some amber and cloudy and clear....I cut a bud in half and looked in the 'middle' and indeed ambers were seen.
Maybe im off my rocker with this theory but im sticking with it
Great looking harvests Rick! Fluffy buds may dry faster than the stems (which will still contain moisture) so bud density plays a big role in drying time in the tent. And it's always better to take them down early and get them in jars at 68% then let them get down to 50% and try to rehydrate them up (not what Bovedas are designed to do...use an apple or orange wedge).
If I had buds as fat as the last BD I would have lost half the plant to rot! Well done
Last plant in the jars and I really screwed up the drying on this one. This plant was the densest and so I let it go 8 days in a carefully climate controlled tent that was maintained at 70F and 50% Rh. Those are the conditions I read are about perfect and after a day in the jars it is a crispy 50-52%. The buds were hard to handle they got so crispy. I had checked the night before and they still felt spongy, but went to crispy very quickly. I didn't weigh, but filled 8 quart mason jars full. I just hope the stuff cures into something decent. My Blue Dream that was grown in soil may be the only decent plant from this grow.
AND, none of the smallest stems would snap. I don't have a lot of experience, but I have never had a plant get dry enough for the smallest stems to snap. I have had overdrying problems before though. I think that commonly given advice needs to go on the scrapheap of worthless bro science.
Now I need to try and quickly get some boveda packs as quickly as possible. I wonder if any place local would have them?
You got some weight!
Amazon is a quick order away for the boveda packs. Got them pretty quick and cheaper than local stores.
Did you try any of the bluedream? Was it still pretty dense? Im considering the light you have...but going to see how my photo does this grow. My autos have not been dense at all and im wondering if its because they didnt have enough roots before flowering
