You Are Viewing: Spency's Stack of Stupidity
    #349367 - 01/18/10 04:33 PM (8 years, 5 days ago)

Hi guys,

Well, I did a bit of a silly thing today when I harvested my skunk. When I pulled the pot out of the flood chamber, it hadn't occured to me that the roots of the skunk had woven into the roots of the adjacent plant. This would normally not be a problem, except that... I stupidly decided it would be cool to grow skunk AND HAZE. So the plant has about 6 more weeks to go.

Basically.... there is considerable mass of dead roots woven into a mass of living roots. I guess the lesson here is, grow plants with the same flowering times.

I could have also just have left the stem in there and that would have been ok I rekon - would have still be alive no?

In any case, I don't think there is much to do other than hope. I bought some more GH subculture. Hopefully it will save my plant.

It depends how much of a root base was in that chunck. I did some projects a few years back to determine root damage to survival rates. Since you are flowering alot of leaves might die and you will have a much smaller yield but it might survive.

I never risk damaging the root structure.  So when I find a male or something that needs chopping I just chop at the base of the stalk and leave the roots.  Last grow I kept water them too and they looked the same as all teh others when i pulled em all up several months after i chopped the male.

Not a problem there is a product that will take care of those dead roots naturaly. Has a bacteria that will eat them.
