Hi growers, I'm growing RQS Gorilla Auto. I have entered the tenth week (which ends on October 27th) which should be the last according to what RQS declares.
I post here the pictures of some flowers, in your opinion how long is the harvest missing? The trichomes are almost all white or transparent (I really can't tell if one or the other), amber there are very few. On the lower flowers not even one, the apical one has some.
Sorry for my english if I wrote something wrong

''We did not view marijuana as a significant health problem--as it was
not....Nobody dies from marijuana. Marijuana smoking, in fact, if one
wants to be honest, is a source of pleasure and amusement to countless millions of
people in America, and it continues to be that way.''

Where are you? the scenery suggests the season is over. Everywhere is different but 23rd October (today) is a farming calendar milestone here. Ground frost can now be expected. This can destroy tissue and let the mould get a hold. Long before this many of our plants are dormant looking. Spending the day repairing the damage of cold nights. They do look healthy and things usually take longer than it says in the packets. I think when the native plants have died back there is little point carrying on. My own personal thoughts are that cold plants pull up phosphates they can't do anything with. Flavours leave and that bonemeal flavour becomes apparent, leading to a hard black ash. Our plants want good weather to perform. Better than the natives.
Leave it a few more days if the weather allows, but it looks ready enough to chop if necessary.
I wouldn't bother about the 48 hours dark thing, enclosing the plant in that way could easily lead to problems like mold / rot. Not something i have ever bothered with or been convinced by.

To the large and singular furniture of this noble island i have added from foreign places all the variety of herbs and flowers that i might any way obtain.
i've laboured with the soil to make it fit for plants, and with the plants that they might delight in the soil - so they might live and prosper under our climate as in their native and proper country.
