Did it once and didn't notice any difference but I only left it in the dark for 24 hours. Ive seen many growers state you need at least 36 hours of darkness to stress the plant to see the increase in resin production. Harvesting right before lights on has the highest terpene levels. If you do make sure your humidity doesn't get extremely high, dont want mold at the end! Good luck!:four_leaf_clover:

Hi! you mean 48h darkness before harvest.. I tried and yes maybe there are little more trichomes after that dark time. Also read somewhere that harvest itself should be done before light switches on so that you harvest at dark. Should improve taste.. makes sense..
Hope this helps out! Happy growing!

I haven’t harvest at night time but this years crop will be! The alarm will be set for 4 am ouch ahah I’ve read somewhere, I tried looking for the link but can’t seem to find it now. But they say it improves THC and taste. I’m not sure about the thc but the taste and the smell makes sense. They say at night time the plant release co2, carbon, and surgars which would enhance flavour taste and aroma. But it’s worth a try right? Nothing to lose other then a shit load of coffee ahaha
