That is totally a personal decision... some people go with a staggered harvest and just take the top stuff on the first round and they wait a few days for the rest... others just throw it all in together and harvest it all at once.I checked the trichomes on two plants and on some branches there are maybe 50% of then amber, on lower branches they all cloudy but no amber ones, should I cut full plant or just some of the branches?
It can be argued that a severe partial harvest can put the flowering plant into shock too, but I never noticed that.Would not that girl then put all her being into those remaining trich's after a 1st harvest?
could be... or the amount of light... or just the strain itself... the big leaves usually dont get a lot of trichomes on them though... its mostly on the buds and the sun leaves surround them.Ok. I will take full plant down at once. And I dont see much resin on leaves, would that be because of all mistakes I have made?
The water is ph'ed to 6.5. I cut out the grow part, because read and saw few videos, where guys were using just two parts with autos, and they grew fine. Now I think it was a mistake. I starter with 1/3 not to burn the plants, because I saw some tipa burning on two of the plants with that dose. So I assumed it was the right dose. Should I go for full amount then? Cos I've read that with autos there should be smaller dose of nutrients.
Not sure how I missed all those posts up until now, but Sister Emilya had you covered! & congrat's on the harvest!You can't believe everything you read my friend, especially on online forums. At some point you need to experiment on your own and figure out who is blowing smoke at you and who is telling you the truth. It also helps to check out those who are giving you advice and see if they are capable of keeping a live grow journal going... proof is in the pudding as they say.
At 6.5 pH, you have broken your nutes. Bingo! At 6.5 pH, they don't work for very long because the soil is drifting the pH up. This is your major mistake. PH adjust to the lower end of the scale that GH recommends for their nutes in soil, I suggest 5.8 pH.
Mistake 2, trusting two guys who claim to have a better way. Follow the instructions given by the nute manufacturer. If they say to give 3 parts in certain ratios at certain times during the grow... that is probably the advice you need to follow... not two guys who might just be trying to make themselves sound somehow more knowledgeable than the folks who made the stuff.
Mistake 3, and we are all guilty of this one over and over in our lives... you assumed. You saw some tip burning or magnesium deficiency or something, and assumed that you were giving too much. I know, I know... you read that Auto's need less. If you have one of those little bitty autos that some folks end up growing [I am actually watching a 3" auto growing on this forum], they don't need many nutes. If you are trying to grow a big Auto... feed it big. Makes sense, yes? Give a plant a bigger light, it needs more nutes.... more soil... more nutes...
