It's a commonly asked question by new growers which this guide will help answer by understanding how watering works for cannabis plants and how to provide the best for your plants for top quality buds.

WHEN TO HARVEST - AND WHY WAITING MATTERS

Hey :)
So, you just flipped your plant to 12/12 flowering light schedule and are already wondering "when should I harvest?"

In this guide we're going to show you the golden rule for harvesting at the perfect time and why being patient matters 👌

Let's start with the basics :)

Trichomes are what it's all about;
these little resinous bulbs shining on the bud contain the reason we grow this plant:
cannabinoids (THC, CBD, etc.) & terpenes.

So, the best time to harvest is when the trichomes are ready 🔎

The following steps will show you how to tell when the trichomes are ready for harvest.

Assembly manual - Camera holder

While it’s nice to have a raspberry pi with a camera to have a live view of our plant 24/24. It might be challenging to install the camera and raspberry pi inside the box.
You can easily inadvertently end up with the pi hanging by the camera cable, which stops the live view:/

For this we’ve designed this camera holder.

It can be placed on a wall or a corner. And you can choose the angle of the camera. All this without needing any screws!

How to setup - A remote live camera

I’m not teaching you anything if I tell you that our plants are like our babies. And just like babies we’d like to keep an eye on them 24/24, even when away from home.
While you shouldn’t overprotect an actual kid, it’s bad for their self confidence, and makes fucked up teenagers; When it comes to plants, having a way to look at it anytime can save you some issues.

The camera we will be setting up is quite simple, it allows you to select the plant you’re monitoring, and will then take a picture every 10 minutes.

Setting up this remote camera will give you two things:

  • You’ll have access to the latest taken pic from the app, at any time, from anywhere.
  • Daily and weekly timelapses posted to your plant diary.

HOW TO BUILD - EKET - 2020 EDITION

Welcome to the website guide of the Eket V2 build video guide.
With two separate chambers this build can do continuous supply in a very small package.

This guide is done with a small and a big eket, but you could do it with two large ones to allow longer vegging, in this case you can do the second eket for vegging with just 2 panels instead of 4.

The normal power usage for this build is below 50w total, which means less than $5/month for veg (4) and $3/month in bloom (3).

The new cardboard compression chamber of the blower allows for a quieter build and makes the carbon filter setup much simpler.

(The attachements below are also downloadable throughout the guide)
