My plants are about 3 1/2 feet tall and are
starting to bud. My question is
about the best way to prune the plants for the best harvest. Each
between 4-6 strong branches plus many smaller ones.
Prune out all the little skinny growth on the inner part of the
plant usually about two to three inches from the stalk out leaving
at least two thirds of the length of the branches in tact and any
leaves that go yellow during the budding process.
It is now close to 7 weeks since I turned the
lights to 12on 12off . The buds are getting bigger and bigger all
over the plants . I have noticed the little hairs on the buds
located on the middle branches on some of the plants are turning
browner faster than the big buds towards the top . Will these
smaller buds peak before the rest of the buds
The buds on a marijuana plant do not all develop
at the same time and rate you have to judge when the plant is ready
by looking at its over all appearance. When 70% of the hairs die off
the buds are ready for harvest although the tops are always better
looking because they get more light and nutrients from the plant
than the lower branches.
