Just a heads up that sometime the Trichs on an Auto don't amber - you could be waiting forever, and the THC will degrade with light over time! :D

:vibe:

Edit: But excellent results from what started as a runt!! You should be well pleased! :D
I am for sure! This is my second grow and the first one really suffered under my noob hands but I learned and moved forward. Learned some new lessons this time around too so I cant wait to carry everything over to my next grow. I haven't really seen what the full Trich development looks like so I'm still learning the ropes.

Sweet! :D You're rocking it!

Here's a handy hint - when the buds stop pushing out white hairs, and the hairs have started to shrink and turn orangey brown - she's pretty much (mostly always) ready to harvest.

Day #101

CHOP CHOP
I sent her into 48hrs of darkness before taking the scissors to her last night. I did continue feeding her all the way up to chop as well. I honestly dont know how you guys with multiple plants can stand to trim everything. Took me around 3 hours to trim my one stunted baby and I was hurt'n.

I lined 2 paper bags with "golfball" sized buds, i just couldn't being myself to break the colas down that far. I also hung one set of branches inside the tent as well to see if I can notice a difference between the cure methods. I know I shouldnt just yet but I peeked on the bags today and all looks good. Now I just have to trust in the process, let them dry and check them again in a couple days. I'll check back in with totals as soon as she is ready.

Thanks everyone for following along. I plan to start one more of the same seed batch to test the lessons I learned from this grow.

Healthy roots are the foundation to a quality plant. I wish I had a pic of my first root ball but I can say that this was a serious improvement.

For sure! As long as the other factors are under control, these girls will do what they are ment to do no matter how bad we punish them. I dont want to rush the drying process but I cant wait to pop a new bean in a couple of days. This next one will be third times the charm and its going to bring a whole new batch of challenges to learn from.
