So yeah, she smells fantastic, she looks nice n firm, Trikes are nice n cloudy.

Shes just on PH water now - no nutes, thinking of chopping her tomorrow would love to know what you lot think, or maybe wait another few days?

I would say no. Those pistils still look very fresh.

 

Its bit hard to give an answer when I can only see 10% of the plant but from what I can see I'd say its not ready.

 

What is it and how long as it been flowering, or if auto how long since germination?

 

 

GV.

Needs at least another week in my opinion, probably longer.

When did you start flushing?

Give it a week as rest said, no need to starve plants in last 2 weeks if you got organic nutes.

Still too many stiff white pistils there, there should be more withered brown ones. Maybe another feed to fill those buds out?

Check the resin glands, no precise science but if a lot are milky or amber and no or few new ones then its close to harvest.

I’d guess at another week too :) as mentioned above with organics you don’t need a flush but just for the record if you were growing with chemical nutrients you don’t need to adjust the ph during the flush . Since there are no nutrients in the feed the plant dosent need the ph to be in range to take them up and by adding a ph adjustment that in in its self will get into the plant which is opposite to what your trying to achieve :) .... I think lol 

 

congrtulations on the harvest, enjoy .... in a week or so haha

I check the EC of organic pots by getting some of the spill off and testing it with an old EC meter from the days of NFT.

 

If you have spare cash and really want to know what the EC is then buy one.

You can't use an EC meter to accurately check the strength of organic nutes fella. lol

I'll accept that. But that said, can you elaborate more?

 

Will it give a baseline? After all if I do a weak feed it shows on the EC truncheon as weak.

 

If I feed a lot, that also shows. Its an old NZ truncheon, quite old.

 

Is it just not accurate or am I making an idiotic mistake?
