Noticed each of the last two days that I have had cones falling off my plants. Bout 6-10 each of the last two days. Is this normal, and the cones are ready to be picked? Judging from the ones that have fallen off they don't seem ready. The ones that have fallen have been on the smaller side, they definitely have lupulin in them but not as much as I recall from whole leaf I've bought, they don't have much smell to them, and the tips have started to brown at all.
