Happy 420 Ice! Plants are looking good
Wow nice haul... Keepem Green
Looks like quite the haul. Do you take all your plants at once due to having to hang them in the tent? What do you do when one is ready before all the others or when one needs a lot more time than the rest? I ask because I rarely if ever have two plants from different strains finish at the same time. You should end up with a good amount of bud
Well generally in the past most strains finish at different times but not too far from each other, with the exception of a few strains, so I would say within about a week to 2 weeks max of each other is typical...
I use 2 indicators for ripeness. Trichome color which I usually pull when cloudy with about 5-15% amber. I also use the calyx swelling and pistil color/look to determine this and usually when the hairs go from orange to a darker brownish rust color and shrivel as well as the calyx's are really fat.
So for this grow, all the strains were showing cloudy trichomes... all at the same time which was sort of odd as I don't think in the past I can remember this happening across all strains, and most of the pistils were amber/dark brown. I probably could have let the racefuel og and the mendo grape kush go another week or 2, but pulled them with the rest due to needing to get my next grow going, and also having cloudy trichomes, the thc was mature. If I would have let them go another week it may have resulted in slightly more weight, but the increase in weight vs getting my next project started just didn't outweigh the benefits of getting the next grow started, so I decided to pull them.
Some nice looking fat buds.
That makes sense. I've had a couple of plants finish really close but not all at once like that. What is your next project that you are working on?
I would run Trainwreck for seeds
Total harvest 180g or .38grams/watt... My personal worst!!!!!
Here are my total weights for all of my grows and G/w
Grow 1: 1000w HID (400w CMH + 600w HPS) Total yield 574g or .57 grams/watt
Grow 2: 1000w HID (400w CMH + 600w HPS) Total yield 547g or .55 grams/watt
Grow 3: 1000w HID (400w CMH + 600w HPS) No Yield Data (Powder Mildew took over)
Grow 4: 1000w HID (400w CMH + 600w HPS) Total yield 325g or .33 grams/watt
Grow 5: 580w (400w CMH + Mars II 400w) Total yield 245g or .42 grams/watt
