Also....I think in about 2 weeks away from chopping my gorilla glue....I want to wait for some amber hairs right? I heard there is a discrepancy between milky and amber. What's the best time?

@colacody

Are you judgine 2 weeks bby the breeder estimates? 

When do you count flowering from? the flip, or first signs of flower? 

I personally start to flush at around 90% milky, ten percent clear trichomes. then over 10-14 they will change to about 90% milky to 10% amber. 

Look for around 10% Amber and itll give you a good al round hhg with a bit of couch lock. Looking for something to really get you stoned, go for 20% amber, but don't push it any harder than that 🙂

I'm judging 2 weeks from when I noticed the flowers. I have in my calendar the 8 week mark at approx sept 29th.....not too be too specific or OCD or anything lmao.

The durban is defs 4 to 6 left. But the gorilla is filling out really nicely and starting to produce some resin. I'm not rushing them at all obviously but want to have a good gauge ready for the chopping time.

Also the drying process. ...my resources at this time are a bit limited but....I am planning to dry in a cardboard uhaul wardrobe box. Hanging them but am worried how I can remove humidity without a dehumidifier. My house is 53% RH....I'm guessing I could let the air out a bit to remove humidity

....also how likely will I need a humidifier if it gets too dry? 

 

I'm really worried im a fuck it up lol

Relax man, everything will be alright. In a cupboard or wardrobe won't work you need to be able to extract the air.

Can you get a big box, and have a vent from there pulling from the intake of your main grow room? Then itll pull the air out and itll go through the filter too. You don't wanna let the plant just hang with no filter, itll stink!

cardboard uhaul wardrobe box.

yer this will be fine, but cut a hole in it for ventilation, you need to pull that air out

Humidity at 53& is good for drying so you wont need a dehum IMO 🙂 Just a small fan to move air, and extraction to take moisture out

@macky

So heres a plan....the wardrobe box opens at the top....my fan would be at the bottom just for air circulation and it's going to be in an old bathroom in the basement which has an exhaust fan in the room which I could use to pull air out of the room.

The fan in the bottom of the box is for air circulation and the vent fan in the roof of the bathroom could be used for extraction? 

Temps in the basement shouldn't be more than 25 for SURE and probs between 21 and 25 if anything.

Sounds good mate, go for that. As long as the air is being exchanged often, it'll be harder for mold to germinate and grow on your buds.

I don`t harvest the whole plant at once so using a jeweler's loupe like this really shows me where and when to cut.

Also when trimming if you really want to know where your trichomes start and finish this thing helps immensely.

I just bought the one that goes on the phone. 30 and 60x. 

 

So you actually cut a branch....and then maybe a week later....cut another or the rest?
