VanWilder started grow question 3 years ago
My girls hermied and am getting nanners and a few seeds. I only got the 2 plants. Should I just chop and salvage the grow of is there any benefit to waiting another week or 2 to see if they yield improves. Trichomes 70% white and a couple amber. See purps week 9 pics. Thanks

Hey there @VanWilder! I agree with @SpinnerGrow in this case. If you currently have 70% cloudy trichomes and couple amber then right now is actually the perfect harvest time! You said you did a final feed 7 days ago from the time of this response and you have been giving it water+molasses only for 4 days. This means your flush is finished and its time to harvest and i mean RIGHT NOW!! If you wait then those cloudy Trichomes will become degraded into amber and give a more couch lock high. You look like you got a solid little harvest! Hope this helps resolve your issue Vanwilder! :sunglasses:

Hi @VanWilder! Go ahead and proceed to harvest, those buds are going to be full of seeds in a few days, try to save what you can now, if you're having 70% of milky trichomes, your harvest window is already open. Happy harvest :facepunch:

Hello ! If Your plant is 70% covered with white/milky trichomes and you've got male flowers on it then you should chop right now ( after a little flush ) because your ratio will change for something more milky like 80/90% milky trichomes by the end of the flush so a perfect moment as the THC peak is when your trichomes are mostly cloudy. You can chop the second 2 weeks after the 1st one if you want some amber trichomes so a better couch locking effect !
But if you can spot and remove all you bananas ( in case of a light hermaphrodite plant ) to wait until harvest it is also a possibilities ( it is what I do white female dominant hermies) but not the better one. You will loose potency in case of seeds production , if only 2 or 3 seeds are made then you'll get no significatice potency loose ( you won't feel it). I hope it will help you :grin::+1:

hey @vanwilder , nothing much you can do if the naners already pollinated the plant. Next time if you catch it early enough you can take a razor blade to it, and chop em off as they appear a try to manage that. This time though it's kinda too late. I'll tell you what though you're at what 80% milky trykes more or less, which is close enough to peak potency... I would chop it now + asap, to salvage the grow instead of wasting it, it will be more potent like this than when it's completely pollinated. it sucks I know, but the bud will actually be potent enough man, hope this helps ! :rocket:
