Question Icing Flowering Plants Before Harvest

So I'm a part of a growers group on facebook and this person posted the picture below and claims he ices his plants a few days prior to harvest because they sense the winter season and in turn produce more trichomes.. I never heard of this technique so I'm highly skeptical, has anybody heard of this method or tried it?

You should at least put a beer in that ice.

Mmmmm... Beeer! lol


You'll find a lot of stuff on the internet. What you'll eventually come to understand (sooner or later) is MOST of the information about cannabis was created by people's observations. The downside is, most people are not growing in an optimal environment, so many, many, MANY things will seem to make improvements when overall they don't. When those techniques are used in grows with superior environmental controls, they don't make a spit bit of difference except sucking up expensive man hours and other resources.


That being said, it won't hurt the plants and the extra water from the ice might help with a wee bit more of a flush.

Ice isn't going to help those plants. Guys growing popcorn.

It is common to drop the temps the last week or two of flower to densen up the flowers and encourage the plant to ripen. I don't see how a day or two of ice can help anything. Not enough time for a plant to do much.

But hey, maybe his plants suck so bad it doesn't matter. My guess is they benefit from the ice melting and getting watered lol

Dude seems so defensive. Like if you don't use ice you don't know what you are doing. Tell him to come on here and see how far he gets with that attitude lmao

It doesn't make sense to me unless it's something that's indica specific. Sativas wouldn't even get snow like that probably.

A lot wrong with that method... 1st being Nobody's tricking the plant into thinking winter is coming. AS IF!!! Dude obviously doesn't understand that seasons are determined by phytochrome production.


Also, in nature the last thing to freeze would be the roots and the ground so dude is going about his "theory" (for lack of better words) in a backwards manner. How the hell does freezing roots signal winter when canopy temps are 87 degrees HOT???

Anyone who's been growing for years has had thoughts like this, which are then discounted by additional personal experience. Or, as MJPassion noted, research into the actual cause.

I've seen the trick where you water your orchids with ice cubes, but pot?



I'm sure Cervantes would be all over this if it were true...
