No need to cut the plant in the ending days. If your looking for more tricombs I use cold and sometimes dark. In the last week and a half lights on my temp 70-75 f, and lights out around 65 f. I've done 36 and 48 hours cold darkness then harvest. But the dark cold I've only seen a difference on about 40% of the plants I did it on. Because it did work on some I try on most all and keep notes of the strains it worked on. My absolute favorite with that is Three Blue Kings, after the cold dark I actually amazed and stared at it for a while. Looked like I poured large grain uger all over it and sparkles like a diamond.
