Lights Out - Indoor Cannabis Garden Update

Hello Everyone,

Today is the day I have decided to turn the lights off for 48 hours prior to the harvest.

The next indoor cannabis garden update will be in two days minimum, maybe three. You can all expect a photo packed post, as I intend to take a lot of macro shots.

I have some very fat dank cannabis nuggets that are now two days away from harvest and I couldn't be happier over the end results.

I'm looking forward to putting together the harvest post. It's always the most exciting post to make when it comes to cannabis blogging because it's such a lengthy process and oftentimes there are bumps in the road along the way.

Luckily everything went really good with this grow, despite trying a bunch of new things, I always maintained attentiveness towards the plants and closely monitored how they responded to everything I put them through.

Their response to my care was blessing me with these healthy dank cannabis nuggets.

What do you all think of the end result?

I would love to read your thoughts below!

Your time is a valuable commodity, and I always keep this in mind and do my best to respond to everyone. I appreciate all of the amazing engagement and support, thank you!

Thanks for stopping by, have a great day! -@futuremind

Ironically leaving them in the dark for 48 hours or longer really doesn't do anything...

Part of the mad scientist tests.

But I am glad that you are right there at harvest and congratulations!!!!

Thanks man,
I've read in a couple places that some growers have achieved good results with this method so I decided to give it a try.
As long as there are not negative effects on the plants then it's no big deal if it doesn't make a big difference, or any at all for that matter.

I'll probably be trying some more mad scientist tests in the future :D

I appreciate the kind words and encouragement. thank you :)

It's just stress on the plan but I mean you're in the last couple days.

People have tried to cause stress reactions by mutilating the plants with a spike through the stock or putting them in darkness for multiple days cutting water off actually is kind of like tomatoes and it gives the signal to the plant that it's time to move on.

As well I also did a decreasing light schedule with only 7 hours worth of light at the end when I was running full single loads through flower.

After I started doing perpetual I just shaved things down to an even 10 hours sometimes. Actually it is quite a bit of power savings and plants seem to really work hard on flowering and finishing up.

Then of course there is the 12 hours of light 5 and 1/2 hours of darkness 1 hour of light in the middle of the darkness schedule and then another five and a half hours of darkness that commercial flower gardeners use to keep their plants in veg.

So flipping it from 12:12 to 10 hours of light and 14 hours of darkness is method.

I'm sure after you start experimenting and getting way better you're going to be really amazed at the versatility of this plan.

As @ganjafarmer already said, 48 dark hours doesn't mean anything but it gives you satisfaction in anticipating. My ritual before harvest is not giving them water for a whole week.
For how long you leave them for curing?
And please, when you trim them can you measure weight and also when they are dry? I am so curios about income of small tent.

Actually I didn't go as far as a whole week but yes I absolutely do cut off the water before harvest

Thanks @smf37!

I've read in some different places that growers have achieved good results with this method so I'm just giving it a try. Perhaps it does nothing at all, but as long as it's not harmful for the plants that's the most important factor to me at this point.

I'm planning to dry them for 1-2 weeks and cure them for 1-2 weeks. I've never dried buds this fat so I'm not 100% sure how long it will take, and also drying in very low humidity of around 25%.

I'll be weighing both wet and dry and will post the results! :)

Tnx bro I am so curios. Cure them for at least 4-6 weeks if you can resist temptation.

With the first photos I thought that the buds were beasts, but when I saw that you compared them with the lighter I was disappointed

Oh no, I'm sorry it was a disappointment! These are still the biggest buds I've ever grown 😂

I'm not saying it in a bad way, just that here I'm used to harvesting wildly and seeing giant buds

No problem. I'm absolutely ok with just the pictures. These pictures somehow give me the vibe of alien landscape. Point of thoughts, might be a good background for some home make budget sci-fi short film. LOL
