Pot ready to pick??
    #2286970 - 01/30/04 01:55 PM (12 years, 11 months ago)

I know I need to look at the glands with a magnifying glass but I don't have one, so i tried taking an closeup photo. Do you think this is ready to pick?



All responces are greatly appreciated, thanks

Nice picture! The resin glands appear to have clouded in that picture, so I'd say it's up to you but I'd feel comfortable harvesting at that point. You can get really cheap (like $4) jewler's loupes on ebay. I bought a 10x20x and it was received 2-3 days after I won the auction/paid.

That's a crazy lookin' flower, what kind of genetics are you growin?

I was wondering if they're truly clouded or reflecting light and appearing clouded, because that's a spindly thin bud. But then again we gotta consider the lighting he was using, as stated in his previous thread.

But if they truly are cloudy then: what geo said,.

Stigma's will swell and darken, almost looking like one end has a belly on it..
As soon as the belly seems to be ready to burst, or some have started, it is most likely time
for harvest.

AFOAF usually harvests when some are "darker" (strain related color issues), and most have exploded the resin on the surrounding plant material.

When its fuzzy, sparklin', and bloated, its ready :-)
Nice plants... btw :-D

I think you should decide for yourself wheter its ready for harvest or not, one pic and no details on strain, lights and duration of time its impossible to say yes or no.

It's just a bag seed...and yes, the buds are nice, expect they are super fluffy and i probably won't get more than 7 grams dried off of the whole plant. I need some good lights :frown:

yes the plant looked nice but poor, what lights have you been using? 50W per squarefeet is a good rule, organic in soil fuck that hydro lazy ass stuff , soil gives better potency and yield, buy seeds with good genetics Big Buds is a winner for beginners, and also allow the plant to grow before putting it on flowering.

Its not as hard to grow as many think, some weeks ago i harvested only one plant , strain is AK-47 x Mango and the plant yieldet a little over 800 grams with buds(not dried of course). best yielder ive had for some time tho.

free the weed and good luck with your growing :smile:

Shriek, i'de have to disagree on your statement about hydro producing less yield, and potency. the whole idea of hydro is to give the plant its optimal nutrients. To call hydro "lazy" could you please explain your reasoning? Although i believe that organically growin tastes much better if a inexperienced grower forgets to leech his plants before harvest.

Falseaddiction, i would suggest using either a low wattage metal halide or HPS light, it will make the world of difference, also you should supplement your plant with CO2, that can double your yeild. You shouldn't let your plant reach more then 2-3 feet before you induce flowering, otherwise you will end up with a 8-10 foot plant (depending on strain) by the time of harvest. Also, what light cycles did you use on this plant? There are many good varieties to choose from, personally i like Blueberry, Jack Herrer, and like Shriek said, Big Bud is definitly a winner! so good luck with your project and keep us updated  :thumbup:

i'd have to agree that hydro certainly is not lazy...it can be, but usually it's not. you constantly have to monitor the nutrients in the water, the pH, the water level it's self. it's a daily thing. you don't just sit it there and put it on a timer. you're checking your plants at least once a day. and sometimes multiple times a day during the last couple weeks of flowering as they can go through a gallon of water a day easy.

have to respectfully disagree that hydroponics will yield higher than organics. There is a difference between growth rate and the yield. Because something grows faster does not mean it yields more in the same space. If you factor in time for veg growth, hydroponics will have the edge in yield. If you have a separate veg area, that timing issue is irrelevant.

Having greater aromatics is a matter of opinion and relative to growing skill and methods. When done correctly, organics (organic nutrients, soilless mixes) produce buds that smell just as strong as those grown hydroponically. I will concede that hydro-grown plants do have a slightly faster growth rate, but to solidly state that they yield more overall, I believe is misleading.

The reason that I switched to organics was because I didn't see enough difference in either growth or anything else to warrant the need for so much monitoring and expensive meters and nutrients. I think that the only provable plus to hydroponics is growth rate.Whereas the cons are chemical aftertaste in the flavour of buds, extreme susceptibility to over/under fertilization, very high initial investment, many things to break and clog, etc.

If grown in a nice airy organic soil mix and watered with good organic amendments, growth enhancers and beneficial fungi (mycorrhizae), you will easily compete with that of a hydroponic system. Your end result will be full flavored, non-chemical tasting buds. They can be arguably, slightly more potent due to the fact that, as of now, science cannot compete with Mother Nature and naturally occurring elements.

Bottom line - unless you are obsessed with fittings, toys and technology (and many are) organics can grow nearly as fast, just as big (if not bigger), better tasting and IMHO more potent buds. And they do this with very little initial investment, and are very forgiving of newbie mistakes.

i pasted this instead of answering, i think it explains it well. however when it comes to yielding this is very strain dependet, some strains grows better in hydro some better in soil..

but organic all they way :smile:

with lazy i mean, use some time with the plants and care for them like nature ment to, and growing in soil does not mean that you can take a long vacation after each time you water them , you should spend time and care for your plants no matter how you grow.

OT = Off-Topic... as in you're all gettin' heated about Hydro Vs. Soil in a Harvesting thread :wink:

But that's not a bad thing.  Personally, my buddy whom I've witnessed grow throughout nearly an entire cycle uses soil and the grow has gone great!  The plant has been healthy throughout and is over 4 feet tall and 3 feet wide, with many flowering tops :cool:

For a dude who's never grown before (or so he says), he's got a damn fine plant.  Of course I've also seen great hydroponically grown plants too - but I hear what everyone is sayin' and if I were to grow, I would opt for the more forgiving and cheaper soil growing medium.  Just my 2 OT cents :grin:

you might as well pick it now because it doesn't seem to be plumping up anyway...do you have any pics of the whole plant?

Ya, your right man, i just did pick it , oh well...not a big yelid, but it looks and smells really good. Is there a good, but quick way to cure it? I don't have much, so i really don't want to take to much time to do it, but if i have to i will, thanks , peace

If you want to get some decent size buds, buy a 400hps low bay. its good for new growers to start out on, therye quite cheap too.

That is right up close eh. I always thought you should pick it when the cystals start go go amber, not tooooo sure. Nice camera too!!!
