Thanks man, the buds are getting better everyday, they all look so nice :hairmetal:

The WW has a nice skunky pine smell, the BB has hardly any smell, kind of sweet sativa fruity, but not strong yet. U1 is similar to the BB in smell but the buds are huge already. U2 smells of very sweet pine and the pistils are so damn thick on this strain, also very frosty :laugh:  And the BW has a very sweet skunky odor with a hint of that sativa characteristic that's in the BB and U1, kind of a vegetable/planty smell. The Diesel however smells a bit more awesome than the rest, a lot like the BW but with a sharp soapy smell that is fucking delicious, it makes me almost cum all over the BW which are right at teabag height  :pimpslap:   

After the last spraying with Azamax, the ends of many pistils have turned red/orange. It's most noticeable on the Blue Widow however the trichomes are clear as day.

OOOH! I just got the HESI Phosphorus Plus and started adding that at ~18ml per 2.5gal every watering. That will be increasing over the next 2 weeks until it peaks at about 22ml per 2.5galSpeaking of watering. I can't wait to see how they swell.

Would anyone recommend any of the additives you can buy for late flower boosting? Like Gravity and whatnot, or any thing else, not necessarily a "flower hardener".

Small update, I just installed a 32gal res tank, 265gph submersible water pump, 10ft of tubing terminating in a 2ft rain wand with breaker head. No more crawling around under my plants holding 20lb of water fully extended, away from my body, to get to the plants in the back. Now I just plug in the pump, aim the wand, turn the valve and drench my pots with nutrient solution.

The first fill was:
20gal tap water
320ml of HESI Bloom
150ml HESI Phosphorus Plus
16 drops HESI SuperVit

The pH seemed a little low, at about 6.2. My mom was talking to me when I was pouring the nutrients, I hope I didn't fuck that up. When I think about it, if I did I may have added about 80-100ml extra of the Phosphorus Plus @ 20gal is 32.5ml per ~10L which is about 8ml more than recommended, BUT I don't think I added that much though, I just doubt myself after testing the pH. I think the plants will be alright. I need to get a ppm meter (or EC) and pH pen. Any recommendations on cheap reliable testing equipment?

Anyways, the buds are getting much heavier and more resinous sense adding the Phosphorus Plus, many are falling over, luckily I just bought some 4ft bamboo stakes.

Re: Nanooks 1400w Igloo Blue Widow Smoke Test [Re: Nanook]
    #446027 - 07/13/10 07:59 PM (8 years, 10 months ago)

OK, sorry for the triple post, no one seems to be commenting much :shrug:

So 2 days ago, or 5.5 weeks flowering, I noticed a small bud on one of the Blue Widow plants that was (like many of the branches) tucked under the canopy. When I pulled it out into the light, like I always do, I noticed the hairs on it were about 80% red. So I clipped that little bitch off, cut it into tiny pieces and let it sit out for 2 days. I didn't think to look at the trichomes, I was pretty high off of all the Thai I've been getting lately. God I fucking love the Thai, pure sativa is a great buzz :laugh: If it didn't take 15 weeks to flower I might consider growing it more seriously.... anyways, it looked good enough for a test run. the dried bud was a nice full packed bowl in my spoon...

AND

Halfway through the bowl, I'm feeling very nice  :bigblunt:

It's pretty smooth, not much taste except for a hint of musky pine, maybe? The smell after I chopped it up was ~50% fresh plant smell and ~50% sweet skunk. After it dried the fresh plant smell was mostly gone and there was still a mild bit of skunk.

It's Blueberry component is very strong this early in it's maturity. I'm thinking of taking one of the two BW plants in about a week, then let the other one go to maybe 8 weeks. The buzz is all in the head, circling around my eyes and the back of my skull. Pretty relaxing too.

Sorry for the lack of pics, my camera is still fucked  :crankey:

yeah, that box fan is still kickin' :laugh:

And you are right about the reflector! "What does he win, Bob?"

My dumb-ass old roommate got that a while ago and when I ended up with it it didn't have the ends on it. I did manually bend the sides out a little because the parts level with the bulb were almost vertical. But the other one I have on the other side of the room has the ends on it.

A bud preview, this time from Diesel#2

Day 46


My camera is still broke and getting pics under the HPS is hard. I will try to get more when the lights go out. I clipped this bud because of the red/white hair ratio. The trichs are 40/60 clear/cloudy. Only a few amber ones on the bud. It was off a lower branch that was about 30" away from the bulb. The buds within 15" of the bulbs are huge, fat, dense and much more resinous than this sample. The hairs up top are >20% red, lots of new hair growth lately.



Through the looking glass:

I got a new camera, still figuring that out. Here are a couple shots with the new photo capture device.

Fat nugs from the Diesel :laugh: These are from D#3

Oh yes, that plant in particular, I think from all the supercropping. Any way, more pics!

But first! Just so you know, there has been a pH issue with a couple Diesels and U#2. pH of the runoff was <5.5 So I have been adding water with a pH of >8 to compensate as pulling them out to drench the pots would be a pain in the ass at this point.

I am now flushing all the plants but U#1 and the BB, watering with just water now at the start of week 8.

First the Veg closet, plants on the right are a friends, he put them in some crappy Miracle Grow soil and they are getting a little stressed as they get bigger, too many nutes I think?

Veg Closet atm


Big one's a male


Other large potted ones are confirmed fems, not sure if u can see in the pics


these are the old clones and the one in the back is from a friend, got a bit crispy and had 2 growth tips survive, it's been in new soil for a week now, doing good :laugh:


found this little guy on one of the females, had to smash him, the stinger was intimidating, but he was no match :brucelee:


Now for some bud shots!


DAY 56


White Widow


WW in the back, BB on the right, U1 up front, U2 on the left


Blue Berry and Unknown 1


Unknown 1


Unknown 2


Diesel


Blue Widow - harvested about 3/4oz I guess, 10% amber trichs, still lots of buds on those 2 plants, now some of the lower ones are getting more light.

I almost forgot! I fried my timer :frown:



I guess adding the dehumidifier to the power strip plugged into the timer was a bit too much. With the lights, fan AND the dehumidifier it was pulling close to or more than the 15 amps the timer was rated for.  :facepalm:

I noticed when the lights didn't go out when they were supposed to. I went to check the timer and found it like this, it was all hot and soft, the switch inside melted I guess because it wouldn't turn off. Luckily I have like 3 other grounded timers.

Any recommendations for heavy duty timers that don't cost $200 like some I looked at?

Here are a few more pics. I clipped these buds the next day (day 57) from first the same BW plant as before, then a nice Diesel bud for good measure. Actually it was in the way. After trimming the BW buds I had room to move the 600W down a few inches and that Diesel bud was a little close to the bulb, had about 10% amber trichs and looked juicy as fuck. So I clipped it.

Great Log! Nice setup.

I gotta ask though, since it's bugging me. With such beautiful buds, you didn't feel the need to trim her down a little more?

Thanks for the appreciation. As for the manicuring style, I know leaves taste bad and have fewer trichomes, but I have found that the best cured buds I've had were cured with some leaf still on the bud. This could be a coincidence. I still want to try different things, like not manicuring until the bud is dry.

Anyways.... I have harvested all but 2 plants now. There is still 1 each U1 and U2 alive. I yielded more than I expected  :dancingbacon: I was hoping for 2-3oz per plant and I'm getting 3.5-4oz  :obama:

How 'bout some pics?

Lets start with some bud shots just after a few massive trim sessions:

U1 hanging up, mostly WW on the shelf


Wet WW taken @ 10.5 weeks 12/12


Wet U1 also 10.5wks


Wet U2 - 10.5wks just one bud, the rest of the plant is alive


After 1 week, the Diesels were taken


At that point, there was still the Blue Berry plant to trim


Now there has been some time for shit to dry and cure, so this is what we're looking at right now:

BW


U1


U2


WW


And this is the hash I've made so far with the BW trim

OK, so the growing is all done! (for this journal anyway)

I've still got a lot of hash to make, but for now, the final yields are as follows, all plants have been cut, trimmed, dried, and are curing in jars:

Unknown1 - 100.1g
Unknown2 - 98.5g
Blue Widow - 92.2g (off 2 plants)
White Widow - 159g
Blue Berry - 127.1g
Diesel #1 - 109g
Diesel #2 - 133.5g
Diesel #3 - 142.3g

TOTAL YIELD (without hash :wink: ) - 961.7g or 2.146lbs
Grams/Watt - 0.687

I would have been happy with 1.5lbs, this is fucking great!

If I keep the plants smaller, more manageable, and pack more of them into the room I should be able to get a lot closer to 1g/w.

I plan on air cooling my lights soon, then I can add co2 :laugh: I should be hitting at least 3lbs next run. UNLESS I stagger the introduction of new clones into the flowering room, which might happen.

I also want to go organic soil-less, got some coco coir and FF Light Warrior, I hear those 2 make a great mix, I'm trying it out with some small clones, seems to be doing well.

I will report back after the hash is all made and dry.
