I was reading a book by Ed Rosehthal about growing and he says that you should harvest as soon as you see the caps getting cloudy. This is the “peak” time to cut. He says cloudy and amber tricombs are signs that the THC is and has degraded. I’ve always waited until a few turned amber before I cut. What do you think is the “peak” of ripeness for maximum THC?
This grow will be my largest to date, 13 plants. As usual I am running two Mars Hydro TSW2000W leds.
Cocoa perlite mix in 5 gallon smart pots.I use the GH line of nutes, Armour Si , Rapid Start and bloom boosters. I use the Coco for Cannabis fertigation technique but am watering by hand for now. I was using automatic watering until my res. pump took a shit and flooded my grow space.
Temp. 72 to 78 deg. F
Humidity runs around 45 to 50 Percent.
Lights on a 18/6 schedule. PH I keep around 60 to 62
Change light schedule to 14/10, 3 weeks into flower.
I have also added a Mars Hydro TS1000 to the mix.
