Changing lights and light cycles, nutrients, air humidity and temperature, flowering marijuana plants for buds as well as cutting, harvesting, hanging buds to dry and cure. Most mistakes made during the flowering period of cannabis cultivation happen during the drying and curing stage as this is the time the marijuana buds become perfectly dried to smoke as well as cured to preserve the flavor and aroma. Knowing when the marijuana buds are ready to be harvested, cut, hung and dried by using a jewelers loupe or magnifying glass to check the color of the trichomes (thc glands) which is the only proper way to know when marijuana plants are ready for harvest.

If you harvest too late you will have burned thc glands, fox tail spiraling growth, and an over-fertilized flavor and taste, which usually is a result of not flushing nutrients from the plants and buds during the last 10 days of flowering.
