i saw in another post that someone said "don't forget about 24 hours of dark the day before harvest". Why is this?
Well this ended up being a debate so a report is in order.GreenDayGirl said:Ok Mutt...what's the answer?
taken from:During the dark hours the plant replenishes the THC eroded by the previous days light. When you magnify glands and look at the resin it starts out clear then turns cloudy and finally it turns amber. Amber means that the chemical properties of the gland have changed and the THC has been converted into CBN. I think it would be fair to say even if the extended light hours during the final days of flowering did increase the overall yield there would also be an acceleration in the conversion of CBN cannabinoids. If one was to use an extended light period in hopes of increasing yield I would leave the plants in total darkness for the final couple of days. By doing this it will help in the replenishing of the THC in the resin.
