    Dark period before harvest.

    This will be my first significant indoor harvest and I have read many contradicting things about a 48-72 hour dark period before harvest. If you do this or dont, I would love to hear about it. If you do this how long do you think is appropriate and how much ripening do you see, say I have a little amber, will this increase during the dark time?

    I've tried it with legit Blue Dream clones I've grown several times with no discernable difference in yield/quality. YMMV.

      I "think" 24 hours help the aroma of my autos,,,,


        It doesn't hurt, but it doesn't improve anything either.
        I may do it for up to 4 days, If I need the tent space for other plants.
        Other than that, I wouldn't bother-
        Harvest when ready after the usual dark period.
        It's all bullshit - until you smoke it!
