    this is where I like my trichomes to be, 10%-18% amber, with most cloudy.

    Nice post, thanks for sharing. You should add another section, specifically going into more details about trichome ripeness, and magnification. To me this is the most important step in harvesting top notch cannabis

    Harvesting

    after you cut your plant is it a good idea to put it in a closed room with a light and a fan ? Or no light? If a light just a regular ? 1st time growing sorry

    I know this topic has been discussed before... I know there are people on both sides of the argument. The people that say to harvest before lights come on say that as soon as the lights come on thr plant moves all those starches (etc) from the roots into the plant.
    But here's my question -

    How could the plant Instantly move all that stuff from the roots into the plant? I mean, I could see that it would start the process once lights are on. But how could it do it instantly when hit with the first morning light? I wasn't aware a plant had the ability to move things in that manner.
    So, having said that, I could see why you'd want to harvest early in the AM as soon as the lights come on. But is it really necessary to try to harvest in complete darkness?

    Also, my next question - I have a hell of a time telling when the tricomes have turned cloudy (and yes I've seen some of the pics). They always look kind of cloudy to me, even when I know there are weeks left... Where exactly do you look? At the center of the tricome head? For the stem of the tricome to turn cloudy? I think a lot of times I end up waiting too long...

    Long time lurker and first time grower here.
    I have learned SO much from this community, and there is SO much to learn that I have been stuffing my brain with it AS I need it.
    I am coming into my last 3 weeks of flower and it's time to start learning about the harvest/curing part of this journey.
    What a great post to add to my mental repertoire.
    Thanks so much for the post... awesome

    Oh man.. what an amazing post!

    I am a first time grower having a lively discussion about harvesting with a highly seasoned grower. On the other hand, I lived and worked in commercial fruits for 25 years. I know how to make things grow, just not MMJ,,,yet

    I knew that plants had to be harvested at night. I knew this because any plant that you consume only a part of the root, or a part of the top, that it was important what was in the stems. I considered that hay is the part that is eaten by cows, and we harvest hay at night. We harvest at night because it makes it the best for the cows, so then I reasoned MMJ had to be harvested at night. But for the life of me, could not explain why. I just knew it was really important, but was concerned that my grower friend would think I was nuts if I told him I was going to harvest at night.

    Thank you SO much for your post!! It made every second I was on ICC mag worth it, just to read this thread. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

    Several other threads are filled with heated discussion on this subject. Here's one take based on studies of starch movement in leaves - https://www.icmag.com/ic/showthread.php?p=5358121 .

    first of all i'd like to thank the guy of the thread! Thanks to him this year I could cut my first plant ever! In fact, I've been looking and searching in web for good instructions and this has been the most complete! Thanks again! Second of all I would ask wich is and where I can find simon's post! As I say I'm not an experinced person and the plant I have, wich as been given to me as a present, it was ready to cut so I didn't even grown it! Since I found this web side I'm starting to love the idea next year to grow my own one... You really don't know how happy I am of have found all of you and cannatris international! Sorry I'm loosing the line. Questions: wich is simon's thread? And: my plants are hanghing since three days and today I feel like they smell of normal grass !!! Is it possible??? And again, how I dry the leaves I've cut? I would like to use them in the kitchen, liquors etc.... Sorry my English please, I'm Italian!
