    Default Tips for harvesting and drying

    Hi guys, I'm near end of grow, maybe 2 to 4 weeks left I have 4 different strains, they all be finished different times, so my question is how should I dry them if others still growing? I can't be drying them in same dent no? Thanx in advance

    This is exactly the sort of lack of forward planning that I like.

    Any possibility of getting a 2nd tiny tent - well under £30 for a 60x60x60cm thing.

    If you can't afford a second tent (or want a quick solution)..a cardboard box with some holes in big enough to house the bud, linked up to the main tent will suffice too

    Hmm even if I could get that the smell will be still the problem, I could use a closet but it's a very little control over the temps and humidy then, that's my first grow also and yes I should have planned it a little better

    I wish I'd kept a few tea chests. They'd be awesome little grow/drying spaces.

    Small bit of ducting connected to the main tent works

    I don't think you can get any real control, you'll be passive intake on the small tent, so it'll be dependent on what your growing space is

    I’m in the same boat m8 except I’ve only got 2 going and one of them could have been chopped nearly two weeks ago but I’m letting that go till the other one is ready as I’m not sussed about that one being a couch lock one lol, it is an absolute bastard to try and see them without a loupe, I hope u manage to sort it out m8, they’re looking nice, I’m thinking of splitting my growdrobe into two fro this reason in the future but I’m just gonna use cardboard I think so I can put it in and take it out when I want to, good luck with the harvest m8

    Well I was bit wrong, how long does it take from foggy trichomes to go amber? I saw few amber on some of them aswell, is it time to start flushing them?

    Depends on how you like them Quotientcatalysed..this ratio is completely down to a growers personal preference...in terms of time, it's hard to say because the time frame can vary so much in terms of changing from cloudy to amber.

    Here is a pic that might help (not with the time frame question though obviously lol) ;
