Welcome to the boards friend!

She doesn't look quite ready. Do you know what strain it is? How long has she been flowering?

Here's a good place to look for harvesting, drying, and curing info. Just click the below link, scroll down a bit, and you'll see the articles you're looking for

After reading those articles, and you still have questions/concerns, don't be shy, come back and ask!

Well, ain't she a skinny one! But still, congrats on your first grow!

A few tips for next time: Don't trim so many leaves off at once like that. You only want to take off the big fat fan leaves..not strip it down naked, you perv! lol! And when you take so many leaves off like that at once, it'll set the plant into a state of 'shock' where she will temporarily stop growing, and concentrate only on healing her wounds. A wound opens up every where you pick a leaf stem off.

What kind of light was she under and did she get any nutrients during the course of her life?

see i have read that before.
i got a little carried away, she seems to be doing okay considering my chop job.
but to answer your question no, no nutrients, and just a grow bulb from walmart, nothing special.
i literally spent no money on this whole process. just a trail run to get my green thumb on

Not bad, not bad at all, considering the conditions, budget restrictions, and lack of growing experience
