So sticking a screw in the stalk will cause more resin as a reaction to the stress?
OK the bro-science in this thread is overwhelming.
Water the plant up to harvest - leave the lights on like usual and dont stick a freaking screw in the stalk. wtf is that?
Where do you guys get this stuff??
There's a science called horticulture. Good reading.
You've never heard of stem splitting? Maybe you should do some research
If you give enough ice water you can harvest bubble hash instead of nugs. .I would indeed give them some water 48 hours before harvest.
Especially if you have them in total darkness.
Hit them with icewater
You don't even need nutes in it at this point.
At this point it's all about letting them know that Mother Nature is about to lay a licking on them
Not everything what we know about these plants is yet written in scientific journals, because in most of the world, growing this stuff is still illegal. Give us time, and all of this will be common knowledge as official research catches up with the practical world.
Water your plants harvest when they are ready or weather tells you they need to come down.
Dont over think. You dont bring in your tomato plants and give them 48 hrs of dark before you harvest them right? Me either.....
There are only a few plants that grow glandular trichomes... so yes, they are different than other plants, radically different. Someday, everyone will understand this and the grow techniques that we are now on the leading edge of evolving on these forums to accentuate and protect that growth, will be commonplace.It somehow grows sooo much differently than any other plant that is legal to grow and yet for some reason these techniques are only used on cannabis??

I think it sounds like a lot of work, but it probably is gaining you some growth. The problem is that you will never know what the difference would have been if you hadn't been doing that, so it comes down to if you feel is is making a difference and you feel good doing it, then continue. If it seems to be too much work, it probably is, and the plants will still finish out just fine.Emilya, did you see my question about sunlight in the last days up to harvest? Do you have an opinion? Thanks
