I usually go by the rule of 6. 85% of plant matter (and most biological organisms) is water, so about 1/6th is actual solid "stuff". So, take your weight wet, divide by 6, and that's a good approximation of what your dry weight will be. Of course, there's some variance - Radogast can probably grow circles around me, so he probably gets denser buds, hence his rule of 4 :bravo: - it'll just take practice and experience to figure out how you can best eyeball your yield prior to harvest.

I'm not a real good grower :) I've only 2 years under my belt - but I've made so many mistakes that I can often predict a failure and help you avoid it. :19:

Day 52 from switching to 12-12

Got a 60x's digital microscope on the weekend....very, very few amber. Not sure how long to do, but could still be a fair amount more time?

They're nice plants, but you got a ways. I'd say you want something like 60/40 cloudy/amber ratio, and your buds will likely be fatter than your lighter; e.g., you should be able to hide the lighter directly behind most top colas (based on an eyeball of your pots and heights).

I felt like I overfed them a bit, so I didn't really feed them for a week and a half. I gave them a solid feeding yesterday and this was the response, tons of healthy looking white pistils! This has been such a fun learning experience, you really get to understand and know the plants and how they react to things.

Began flushing tonight. I am going to flush for two weeks based on a very experienced grower's advice who has been doing organic for many years. I am estimating 2 weeks left, but I won't rush to cut if they aren't perfect. They are approx. 10-20% amber depending on the plant.
