I've just been germinating a few Dinafem Shark Attack seeds for my next grow. As a typical bloke I germinated the seeds and then read the instructions. They say "We recommend leaving it in total darkness the last five days to bring forth the rich aroma and extra resin production."

I know there's been a lot of discussion based around leaving the plants in the dark for 24-36 hours but, 5 days? Really?

Does anyone else keep their plants in the dark for 5 days before they chop em?

No, my plants put a lot of weight on in their last few days... I reckon that would be effected by lack of light :wassnnme:

I swear if a seed company said on the back of their pack "let a live bear loose in your grow area for two two days before harvesting", there'd be a thread here asking "where can I get a bear?"

Totally agree but, it's complacency which makes you miss the rabbit. I was hoping I hadn't missed something in my years of growing. It's still an evolving craft after all. New ideas come along all the time and I'd hate to have missed something along the way by sticking rigidly to what I've learned previously. Know what I mean?

BTW where can I get that bear?
