    looking beautiful OF, nice work. The way i harvest pollen is put the plant in the bathtub or shower and set it on parchment paper and shake the soup outta the male. Boy flowers will fall all over along with the pollen. You can use a credit card to scoop it up, but i just leave it in the paper and fold it and put that in a bag and you can freeze it then, but i don't. I just used 2year old pollen that i kept like that and it worked. Not good for long term storage, but hey, we are old.

Today marks 6 weeks in flower. Battling heat in the tent. I have never really flowered in August(indoors anyway)and won’t ever again. My basement normally stay cool but the whole basement is now at 72 degrees. No way too cool it save getting a portable A/C and that ain’t in the budget. For now I leave the tent open during lights on and that keeps the grow area around 78 degrees. No good pics because I got up too late and lights were about to go out.

    Thank you hp and 2RE. I think I am going to be disappointed with my yield but happy with the smoke. The Mimosa smells incredible with citrus and vanilla notes(thanks to umbra for the recommendation). I broke down and gave them a light feeding this morning as I am seeing a majority of clear trichs at this point. Literature says 7-9 weeks for Mimosa. I am betting 9. The Mendo Cookies I am not sure about but since it is indica dom, I am thinking they will be ready sooner.
