placing plants in the dark for 48 hours

the theory is that going to a limited light cycle or even total dark for 48 hrs signals the plant that it's the last chance to get pollinated, causing it to make a final push sending all the goodies to the bud........makes sense. i did it on my last harvest, and can say without a doubt..........damned if i know!

Go to "Robert Connell Clark" he explaines the theory of 24-72 hrs of darkness before harvest also they recommend you stop watering plant  3-4 days before harvest also
