Plants have again surprised me with their immense growth.

We’re at day 21 now, I’ve watered them with all around 1 or 2 ml of calmag supplement.

Smell still is barely noticeable. I have them in my room during the night and upon waking up you smell something, but barely.

I hope the calmag won’t burn them, as I use tap water which is already rich in calcium and magnesium. I’m now waiting to see what happens and proceed based on the results.

Grow Questions
SlimShimey week 6 started grow question 3 years ago
The plants are now placed in rows, not on the windowtill but behind & below. This means that they’re:
1. Growing towards the window once again
2. Have parts of them barely exposed to the sunlight.

What do I do?
Do I let them grow how they want to? Should I trim away some leaves?

Hey, I grow on the window too, and in the summer I'm out for the day in the sun, they grow well, only the yield is a little lower. At home it is better that the plant does not attack as many pests as outdoors. Outside it also threatens pollination from some distant plants. Put them on the sill in one row only. They will always bend behind the light, it doesn't matter. Leaves do not remove leaves until they are more blooming, and then only the lower ones, withered or large, which shield the buds and cover the flowers. Also, because of the more light it is good to put under the pots and behind them, a film reflecting light. I use a thermal insulation foil used by rescuers. :-D Stick it to the box and you have a handmade growbox: -DD

I will likely (based on feedback of auto growers on Reddit) be able to harvest in 4 weeks, which is around the June20th.

The June26th I’ll be on 12 day trip, so if I want to let them dry for atleast7 days, I won’t be able to jar nor burp them.
Should I postpone harvest 3 weeks?

Hi mate thats easy harvest the day before you leave and hang them in a dark airy spot until you get back They should be perfectly dried . I think a lot of people dry their weed too fast or not enough before jarring and beginning the final curing process. A nice slow dry of 10-15 days is ideal Hope this answers your question
Stick answered grow question 3 years ago
Hello @SlimShimey, or should I say MacGyver? :joy: You better not postpone the harvest, you will highly increase the risk of mold / late pollination / various issues...Plus, you will get a couch-locking weed, probably full of seeds. In this situation I would find a way to slowly dry the buds. I think I would harvest on time when the trichomes are almost all milky and let the whole plant upside-down for 3 weeks, without trimming it all but just removing the main fan leaves. This way, the plant will dry really slowly, and you should have a nice product in the end. Hope this will help, let us know how this goes, and happy growing! :facepunch:

Hi! Harvest them and leave them with enough air to dry in cardboard box. They dry slow won't get mold and when you get back they'll be just fine. Three weeks postpone is too much.
This for future I saw this old one
Happy growing!.
