I would let it go a bit longer. I think you harvested one before Thanksgiving so you should have a bunch of bud to keep you buzzed. If you let this one go longer, you will be able to compare and contrast the benefits of early vs later harvests.
Today I’m closing out week #10 with the second Blue Dream. The first Blue Dream was ready for harvest at 8 weeks while this one is taking it’s sweet time. I plan to harvest in 48 hours. I don’t know if this 48 hours of darkness is “bro science” or legit, but I’m willing to wait.
I might chop and dry the entire plant as one unit this time. Even with using the drying tent at 60% humidity, the hanging branches dried out too fast. I’ll hang the plant at 60% humidity and see how quickly she dries.
Moving her into 48 hours of darkness and then I will harvest her under green lights as I’ve learned on this site.
Cleaning the grow tent today and getting her ready for the new plants.

Thanks. Turkey day was good. Got to hang out with my adult sons, wife and in-laws.I had a sneaky suspicion that you’d say that OldFogey. Thank you for the response….I will hold off. I kept looking at the photo and questioning my rush.
Hope you had a great Thanksgiving! My EM-1 arrived and I’ve started using it on the seedlings as well as inoculating the soil in the 5 gallon fiber pots where they will be going in a week or two. Sounds like great stuff as I read more about it.
i will wager that your grow room smells divine!
say , was your Blue Dream from clone or seed?….
( apologies if you already posted the info )

EM-1 is supposed to be good for a lot of stuff. They say it is a deodorizer but my wife got a bit pissed when I tried it and it turned out to be an odorizer instead. Stuff I don’t use within a month, I pour in my compost heap. Haven’t done a side by side but my compost breaks down pretty quickly since I started that. I have started giving it to my dungeon plants(called a dungeon because it is far from prime grow conditions)…
I will be interested to know how your EM brew goes. When I first started making it, the smell was identical to the bottle I bought. The bottle I bought in June smells normal but my brew smells a bit like cheese. I tried using a new bottle and carboy setup, all of which I cleaned really well, new filter on my water, new container of molasses, etc. Same smell. Maybe it is the bottle of EM-1??? Not sure. The plants like it though.
I put mine on top of the water heater as well. I forget what temp they recommend for fermentation but my house is always ‘cool’ and even though my water heater is pretty well insulated, it is still warmer than most areas of my house and it is usually dark. It takes about a week at minimum for my EM fermentation to get going.My EM brew still smells like molasses…don’t think any fermentation has taken place. I think I’ll place the jar on top of my hot water heater to warm the fluid up more tomorrow. I’ll let you know, but so far I’m not having much luck.
On the effectiveness of EM1, one of my Christmas cacti flowered a month or so ago. All the blooms dropped. I had extra EM1 to use up do I dosed all my houseplants. The Christmas cactus is flowering again. I transplanted it into a bigger pot this summer so it has some relatively fresh soil but I thought they only flowered once a year.
