Wow, that big bang looks great!  The trichs in the second picture all look crystal clear.  I can't provide any insight into the ssh problem.  but i can wish you luck through this issue.

14.02.09
So this grow came to an abrupt end when I discovered some bugs riding along the water that came out of the drainage holes on the SSH. They were small and white and looked like larvae to me. I decided to immediately flush with a lot of water and hope I get all of that, whatever it was. In the closet she was tied with some string for support but when I took her out of the closet the buds had become too heavy for her  and the stilks both snapped right in front of my eyes - FFFFUCK!
Lesson learned: be careful with huge plants.

So I spent the next hours manicuring the very immature buds and putting them to dry. I took one small-ish bud and put it on the oven for fast drying. That evening I cut up that bud, grinded it along with a bit of the proven Big Bang and mixed it with tobacco for a spliff (I was worried it wouldn't burn well) and took a walk around the neighbourhood as I smoked it.

Thank god I made it back again before it all started. I sat down with my laptop and realized that I was high as fuck. And I was getting nauseous. Every time I moved my head I was reminded how nauseous I felt. I put some music on and tried sitting by the window for some fresh air. After a couple of minutes I thought the nausea was gone so I stood up to change song but when I did I puked all over the floor. However, the rest of that evening was great.
Lesson learned: go slowly with new weed, don't smoke too much.

The Big Bang yielded 1.2 ounces. I had put the Big Bang buds in bags and jarred them. Today I was opening the jar and inspecting them for some reason when I noticed that the huge main cola bud was starting to degrade. It smelled like a piece of bread that had been sitting in the table a bit too long :frown:. There was probably a lot of moisture left inside the bud since it was much larger than the other ones. I put it on the oven to dry it some more and mixed it with the cuttings that I'm going to use to make cannabutter.
Lesson learned: dry it properly.

This grow was far from perfect, but I've learned a lot and I will use it for the next grow: Lemon Skunk and Hawaiian Snow.  :jointsmile:

bummer man.  SOunds like some potent weed.  Too bad about the bugs and mold.  Good luck growing out the skunk and snow strains!

Snufkin, that may be the saddest story I've ever heard. Waaaay to many lessons learned in too short a time. I hope what you do have left is good to you brother. I had a great time following this thread. I look forward to seeing some more from you quite soon!

Great grow man! Unfortunate that you had so many incidents, but I'm sure you'll learn and your next grow will be that much better. You've inspired me to start up my own closet grow once I have better funding :wink:

Let your buds hang dry for at least 4-5 days next time. Even if they look dry they still might be wet on the inside.
