    This actually royally sucks. Will be a pain in the ass to pull this off. Adapted a tomato cage to help support the floppy girl, as I'm going to have to move it around a lot. Find a dark closet to keep her on schedule.
    Now that she is out, for sure confirmation of nanners in the beginning stage. I wouldn't complain if I get a few seeds off her.
    Trying to convince myself some trichs are cloudy, but think it's wishful thinking. Generally wait to see a few amber to confirm. I have to be careful of the sunlight as well, stronger than my grow light for sure..
    Supposedly 60-65 days to finish, but you know how that goes

      1) if you have found seeds and nanners the damage is already don't and the best thing to do is to not move the plant around alot or at all to reduce spreading pollen.
      2) as close as you are with the date just let it finish up the needed 7 to 10 days.
      3) although dreaded, it's not the end of the world. Mist your plant with water before handling and moving, handle last, and wash your hands when done.

      Thank Mr Furley! Funny, after the initial shock set in I came to the exact same conclusion as you suggested.
      I put her back in the tent to finish out. As you say, being as close to finishing her as I am I probably won't even get many seeds. I hope I do get that one I saw anyways.
      Thanks for the input, makes me feel better about moving her back in.
      Have a great day!

    Sharpening up the ax this week, next weekend the GG comes down and I suspect the BW as well. Showing cloudy trichs now.
    White widow could be a few weeks out yet
    all the best

      George4green I have all kinds of discolored stems ,if you have a big temperature swing between lights on and lights off can and does cause stem and leaf discoloration , I would not be worried this time of year unless you have a steady temp during night time.
      any question can be asked anywhere if its about weed off topic is anything that does not have something to do with weed ,so welcome and enjoy

      Thanks again guys. Getting ready, went and bought some new jar lids--not an easy thing to do in the sticks and this time of year(g). But we're covered(ha).
      George4green , I see OJH gave you some info, I'll defer to his more extensive knowledge!
      Gearing up for my work season, I'll be happy to put the grow to bed and change gears.

      Thank you for all your input. I need to reset my temp meter to see why my temp flex is on the norm. They had a hard life at first with 90* temps and low RH for about three days everything seems good for the most part ppm about 670 I have a thread going on it I stop hogging this one if you don’t mind checking it out always enjoy others 2 cents

    Taking the bulk of the fan/nonsugar leaves off the GG4 today and tomorrow she'll get the axe, unless I change my mind then Sunday for sure.
    Still waiting and watching the BW, she'll be next. Both are pretty much all cloudy, but no amber showing yet.
    GG is in front
    all the best
    Think I'll get a years worth of weed out of it? I know, depends(g) Next grow will be next January 1st

        I love the look and smell of fresh cut buds way more than a lawn lol

        You just had to mention the lawn!(lol). Gosh, I have so much crap that got blown down through the winter it will take me a week just to clean the yard up and torch the burn pile. The upside is I did buy a new JD lawn tractor last year, the downside is I still have to drive it and mow the lawn!
        So I took a few hits of the scissor hash from the GG4, very strong and a bit speedy, which is actually a good thing for me(ha). I was a bit early(cloudy, no amber) chopping this one down, but was fighting the leaf die off and had to go with a happy medium.
        I will push the widows out longer for sure. Will wait for some amber to show on both.
        Pretty sure I will get the quantity (and quality) from the widows I need to get through the year.....or at least my work season(g). Much of my work is mindless labor that can at times pay me silicon valley wages. A few hits during the day certainly brightens it up.

      oldjarhead100 A good part of my work is annual service contracts on condo buildings, homes etc.,as well as general contracting. Self-employed one man show, employ subs if/when I need them. I won't go into the type of work, little to close to home. You know I grow a little weed, and a bit more about myself since we're getting personal (g)
      I am a dynamic figure, often seen scaling walls and crushing ice. I have been known to remodel train stations on my lunch breaks, making them more efficient in the area of heat retention. I translate ethnic slurs for Cuban refugees, I write award-winning operas, I manage time efficiently. Occasionally, I tread water for three days in a row.
      I woo women with my sensuous and god-like trombone playing. I can pilot bicycles up severe inclines with unflagging speed, and I cook Thirty-Minute Brownies in 20 minutes. I am an expert in stucco, a veteran in love and an outlaw in Peru.
      Using only a hoe and a large glass of water, I once single-handedly defended a small village in the Amazon Basin from a horde of ferocious army ants. I play bluegrass cello…I am the subject of numerous documentaries. When I’m bored, I build large suspension bridges in my yard. I enjoy urban hang-gliding. On Wednesdays, after school, I repair electrical appliances free of charge.
      I am an abstract artist, a concrete analyst, and a ruthless bookie. Critics worldwide swoon over my original line of corduroy evening wear. I don’t perspire, I am a private citizen, yet I receive fan mail…Last summer I toured New Jersey with a travelling centrifugal force demonstration…My deft floral arrangements have earned me fame in international botany circles. Children trust me.
      I can hurl tennis rackets at small moving objects with deadly accuracy. I once read Paradise Lost, Moby Dick, and David Copperfield in one day and still had time to refurbish an entire dining room that evening. I have performed several covert operations for the CIA. I sleep once a week; when I do sleep, I sleep in a chair. While on vacation in Canada, I successfully negotiated with a group of terrorists who had seized a small bakery. The laws of physics do not apply to me.
      I balance, I weave, I dodge, I frolic, and my bills are all paid. On weekends, to let off steam, I participate in full-contact origami. Years ago, I discovered the meaning of life but forgot to write it down. I have made extraordinary four-course meals using only a mouli and a toaster oven. I breed prize-winning clams. I have won bullfights in San Juan, cliff-diving competitions in Sri Lanka, and spelling bees at the Kremlin. I have played Hamlet, I have performed open heart surgery, and I have spoken with Elvis. But I have not yet gone to college.

        Anyone have a general rule of thumb as to the average amount (weight) one gets into a quart jar?
        I know it's a difficult question, just trying to get a guesstimate
        TIA

          20 to 33 grams depending on Strain, Bud size, density...................
          It's important to only fill the jar 3/4 to cure.

          Thanks Mr furley, greatly appreciated. I did some google searching and of course estimates were all over the place, obviously due to variables. But you gave me what I was looking for and it really isn't important to me, just curious.
          Will be jarring up the GG4, in my case because I heat will wood, some of my focus is on slowing down the drying process (g).
          I can trudge through the house with snow covered boots and in an hour the floors are dry(g)
          Also targeting this weekend to chop down the blue widow, then we'll be down to just the white widow.
          In a perfect world I'd take the WW and another week or so, but we'll see. The WW seems to have big, fluffy(airy) buds, almost foxtaily.
          Thanks again.
          21 degrees this morning!
          I'm going to need more qt. jars, I picked up 6 wide mouth jars at the second hand store, unfortunately that was all of the "wide mouth" ones they had. Also have a dozen pint size wide mouth, so we'll see.
          PS: I'd take any advice you have to offer on jarring the weed. Might sound like a simpleminded question...but..big buds on top, bottom, mixed?
          I understand the 3/4 full, the more I can tap your's (and everyone's) knowledge--the better. Some of this will be stored for near close to a year.(if I'm lucky)

          I've always just filled the jar never thought there might be a better way to do it hmmm

        #57
        I heat with wood also and read somewhere about these packs. The seem to help out so the bud don’t dry to fast when curing. I filled my jars about halfway then put one pack in each

          I use hydrometers like you would put in a cigar humidor and I won't add the bovida until i'm at 62%rh

          Yes like jarhead said wait until they start getting a little crunch to them then put the packs in. I thank I put mine in after about a week. Opening the jar every day for about an hour the first week then I went to packs and opening about every other day or so. Was going to get the hydrometer but never got to it last time. Then you can just add the packs when you get to about 50%rh in jar. And I always shake my jars to keep the buds moving so the same wet spots aren’t sitting on each other

        #58
        Thanks all. We'll muddle through. Kind of caught off guard,I never expected to have this much weed, good problem to have I reckon.
        Upped my schedule by a day, chopping down the blue widow this morning. Removed much of the greenery and am using it to heat my house (lol)
        Now the sticky part.....
        Edit-done : 102 days sprout to finish.

        White widow is looking awfully lonely this morning. I definitely should have kept feeding her neuts, was afraid the soil was getting to hot. Gave her a 1/2 dose shot yesterday.
        Ah well, end of week 10 I believe flowering, but not showing much pistil color change yet. Really fluffy stuff.
