Afghan Kush Specialized (feminized) - [Indoor Coco Fiber 600wHPS]
    #444913 - 07/11/10 12:36 PM (10 years, 1 month ago)

Hi all, this is my first grow grow/log on the subject, so bear with me.

    * Type of Genetics - Afghan Kush Specialized (feminized) from World Of Seeds
    * Growth Medium - 100% coco fiber from botanicare
    * Time Span: 24 hour h20 soak until split seed/24 hours wet paper towel / 4 weeks veg (current)
    * Light Source: 1 'plant' florescent, 1 cool white florescent, 1 100w equiviltent compact florescent
    * Temperatures and Humidity Levels: 74f / 30-60 humidity
    * Nutrient Combinations and Feeding Cycles: Dutch Masters Gold A+B Grow / Botanicare MY / MycoStim / Superthrive / Cal/Mag+ - Feeding 12ml A+B + 5ml of Cal/Mag+ (per gallon) every other day untill runoff (appx 1/6th runnoff)
    * Pruning & Training Techniques - Topped @ 3 weeks, trained 3 largest branches out and topped them
    * Problems and How You Solved Them - Suspected coco issue with salt buildups causing cal/magnesium deficiencies, used a good 4 day flush with water, and then added cal/mag+ to my normal feeding schedule @ 5mls per gallon
   



So basically using DM nutes, coco medium in 5 gallon bucket. Had some issues with clamming up leaves (twisting and edges curling up) the cal/mag seemed to have erradicated that 90%. Otherwise, I'm just waiting on some equiptment before I throw her in flower.

Ak




Stem



Leaves / stems displaying a nice reddish / rustish coloring on their top parts



curling of the leaves still present







That's all for now, hopefully this will turn out well!







UPDATE: 8 / 5 / 10


things are looking well, I was meaning up update more often, but I have been feverishly working on my grow-room and haven't been satisfied enough to take pics...


Anyways. I have the setup now as follows:

Begginning Week 3 of flower:

600w HPS
Dutch Masters A+B Flower nutes
Technaflora Thrive Alive
Technaflora Root 66
Technaflora MagiCal
Technaflora Sugar Daddy

I'm becoming an incresingly big fan of TN nutes, they have good nute basics, with a few trace minerals and whatnot, not the best, but good for the money once dialed in.

Feeding 5 days of nutes (@ 1600ppm before additives) and a flush day, then rest (sunday!)


Switched from Cal Mag to magical and have seen improvement in my leaves 'praying', they still do, but 10ml of magical for every feeding works wonders.

Running a ScOG setup, using a metal 'grate' like screen used in most cheap greenhouses you can buy online. suspended about 18 inches above the container, using PVC.

The AKS is very stretchy once flowered, they have grown over a foot vertically in 14 days since flowering. The stems are all very rigid, thick, and hollow, no issues yet with them 'bending' or moving under their own weight, I don't believe I'll have to use any more support than my ScOG.



Many many budsites have appeared, a few main colas should form, at least 4. Here is a small bud, these size ones are about 4 days old. I think I see trichs forming!




This is canopy shot, I'm super stoked for this to be all one plant!




And a full body shot, this thing wasn't even TOUCHING the screen 6 days ago...




comin on though!




That stem has gotten THICK in 4 weeks!




well that's all for now, I'm going to try to keep a weekly update at least, but i'm currently inthe process of moving and this probably will be my one and only grow untill next year.





--------------------------


Update 8 07

These are the pics taken right before the massive slaughter of my plant that happened. I dont' know why really, but going on little info, i removed mostly ALL , if not all, fan leaves from  my plant. I did this based on some info i have read up on, but i'll explain that as time goes I suppose. anywho....




blurry, but the budsites are getting better, i believe these are true from the skinny little leaves around the hairs...




last canopy shot ( :frown: ) lookin good...




another budsite, getting there...




keep it real yall.






-------------

8 8


Here is my lady after the hi-defoliation I did.



canopy shot




budsites










I haven't seen any negetive effects from the defoliation as of yet, I'm convinced there is enough leaves left for great bud production. Light penetration is ultimate now tho, all budsites are getting lost of light, especially lower ones.


peace.



------------------------


8 10 10


4 8 15 16 23 42



Even after the massive defoliation, I feel really good about it now, I am seeing a lot of growth in the leftover fans leaves, and the canopy has filled in a lot more, I really think the large defoliation of fan leaves is helping with light penetration and focusing nutes/energy on budsites. Well at least I dont' see any negetive effects if anything.




Top colas are starting to fill in pretty heavy, slow and steady.




Gettin some resin glands!





--------

FRIDAY THE !3th


Things are moving right along. I'm extremely pleased with the way this plant has grown for me, pretty much what i was really hoping for so far, and it's making me happy.



Budsites are many, this thing has more than I care to count, it seems that he brutal defoliation I have done seems to only make my plant want to make more leaves, I have defoliated 3 times now, once heavily, then two more times with at least 20 leaves or more. All leaves left over (mainly on the budsites, or direcly around) have filled the shoes of their fallen comrades and once again saturated the canopy. Light is STILL having a hard time penetraiting the bottom budsites, but it's fine with me for now.


Also, i'm seeing where I could have made better use of my ScOG tek, but now that I know this strain , if I decide to use it again I will know a little better of what to do. I trained my branches a bit, but wasn't expecting the stretch I got. it has probably grown a good 20+ inches in the first 3 weeks of flower. (!!!) so, this strain is very stretch, and not recomended for growers with limited height. (clones that were only 2 weeks into veg were flowered and doubled in height and are STILL stretching after 3 weeks)




anywho, the buds are showing their calyxes to me now, and i'm (hoping) stretching is done (finally). resin production seems to be steady, and i'm noticing a lot of glands on the fan leaves which make me smile.



here is a canopy shot, i can only get the top w/ this camera now.




here is what seems to be forming a good little nug...




the ligth penetration (before my 3rd defoliation ) was good, but it got better after this pic



top bud shot, getting some resin glands



good show of top bud with calyxes getting larger deep in there...



now here is a one I need some input on, considering all goes well, do you guys think this top (from my fingers up) will be one nice bud, kindof alltogether, because i'm hoping these tops will form into solid, big buds... I'm just asking for the time frame (about to start wk 5 flower) should this fill out and become one nice top cola, or will all those little buds be kindof seperate from each other?







So a few q's I have I guess:

-how much more do you guys think this has untill I need to start flushing. the seed bank said 55 days of flower for this strain untill harvest, i'm on day 25 or so, so like , 2 weeks and flush 2 weeks?

- Is there any recomended nutrients / additives that TRULY are worth adding at this poing to help with the quality of flowers?

- Should I flush 2 weeks? or one week?

- based on this little amount of info , what final weight would you say from my pics this one plant would give? (I'm hoping for 60 grams)

- does the resin/crystals look good for this point? I'm really hoping for a nice frosty bud like the pics of these were from where I got them...


- I've had some horrid chunking in the bottom of my Dutch Master Flower B product, is this from  me not shaking it enought? Should I take it back? I'm thinking this might ahve thrown the ratio off of that bottle if some nutes are concentrated in the chunks on bottom. I cannot shake them back into the solution.




-----

8 18 Day 30


So things are moving slowly, not as much 'explosion' in growth as I would like. I was having temps up in the 90's and high humidity, coupled with low air flow I think this has caused the lack in growth.

I've modified my space to at least 75 now and lots more air flow, so I think this should help a whole lot in that area, and hopefully add to my growth.


- Also I have started adding Snowstorm ultra to my waterings, which are @ about 1600ppm before adding SSU/SugarDaddy/MagiCal , so i'm wondering if that is too high, and perhaps i'm using TOO many nutes. Would a overdose of nutes be an issue? What about PH would that contribute to my slow bud growth? If so, I might get a PH meter and PHUPDOWN soon, I haven't been checking this...




This is one of the top bud growth



canopy shot, I'm hoping these are going to fatten up soon, or be good at all!



This is a small bud, the hairs are starting to turn orange on this, I hope that is not a sign that it's close to wanting to finish, because it's skimpy at the moment. (it's purpleish becuase I was using a flouro to get clearer pics)



more bud growth, how do you think this looks? Good for 4 weeks?




Thats all for now, I have foliar fed them a day ago with SSU 1ml/l and flushed well with water today. Hopefully the enviroment changes will help them speed up...

------------

Update - 8 22 10



Well, things are moving on slowly, i'm not as impressed with the speed that the buds are forming, or at the size. But i'm hoping that it will end up being okay, at least smokable.


Still dosing with Technaflora Boost/Bloom @ 1000ppm and some Smowstorm/sugardaddy


I'm thinking my nutes aren't really the best, but i'm going to stick with it for now.


Air flow and light cycles are good now, i'm hoping the improvements i made will end up giving me better results, i feel like I have lost a week or more by having high temps/light penetration.

32 days or so...(HPS off, flourescent for these pics)


There are a few good top colas in the making, i'm hoping these fill out a LOT more than this.




here is another top branch



This one is filling out better than the rest, hope it gets fat!



hairs on this one turning orange, hoping that it will still get a lot bigger before it's done.



lil guy



another guy






So my fears at this point:

- buds will be fluffy, leafy, not compact dense

Hopes:

- hoping that this will take like 9 weeks and really fill out in the next 4 weeks.

--------------------


-8 27 10 hut!

I've kindof kept a few things going in my comments, just a few thigns about what I'm using and small changes. i will end up integrating all of this into a 'improved' grow log once i'm done and finished, so this might all be sloppy and all over the place now, but i'm going to make it more refined and remove comments and shit like this one for future people to only see the information I'm meaning to provide. A grow log. Anyways...



Here is a nice top bud really starting to fill out and become one whole cola...




calyxes and trichromes are starting to really show !1



a bit light, but the trichromes are really coming out!








and then my camera died....





But you can see that the colas and buds themselves are starting to fill out nicely.


I've now upped my nutes to max strenght i'm going to be using for this grow. I gave the full line up of nutes today and then i'm going to keep it up untill I see burn/stress or I finish. I have only 2 weeks predicted nutes, then flush for 7-end of the plant. So i'm projecting 3-4 weeks on this to finish.


I'm using

Technaflora Boost + Bloom @ 1700ppm

Technaflora Thrive Alive @ 5ml / gal

Technaflora Root 66 @ 2ml / gal

Technaflora Sugar daddy @ 15ml / gal

Technaflora MagiCal @ 5ml / gal

Humbolt Snowstorm Ultra @ 5ml / gal

Gen Hydro MY  - (i think) @ 10ml / gal (I do this a bit diff..)

Fox Farms Beastie Bloomz @ 1ml / gal


now I know this is  full up nute dose, but I have done this only once, and then now. I plan on fully hitting them with this once a week now untill we are done.

Otherwise, daily watering (which is 2 times now )will be

-Bloom/Boost @ 1700
-sugar daddy @ 20/gal
-snowstorm @ 5 / gal
-thrivealive @ 5 / gal


and that is my normal watering nutes. I'll bost them will all i've got once a week unless they can handle more.


this plant is sucking up so much water at the moment, i'm moving watering up to 2 times a day or so. Just more really. The coco is becoming VERY dry in a 24 hour time period, especially with a shit ton of increased air flow in the grow room.


ANYWAYS , sorry for the lengthly update, but I'm getting STOKED about how my plant has really shown me what's up.


---------------

9 - 9 - 10

Well I've finally gotten some batteries for pics, but didn't have much time this morning, so here are a few that I have gotten.


The nutrients I've been feeding are the same, running them pretty high but the plants seem to like it.

I'm currently running as follows:

Technaflora Boost+Bloom @ 1800 ppm
Snowstorm Ultra @ 5ml gal
Sugar Daddy @ 20ml gal
CalMag (MagiCal) @ 5ml gal
Thrive Alive @ 5ml gal
Root 66 @ 1-2ml gal
Beastie Bloomz @ 1tbsp gal


I've also been working with a 'tea' of sorts. I have created the following recepie...

-1 gal Water
-A heaping Scoop of MyCostim
-20 ML of Botanicare MY
- 10 ml Root 66
- 20 ml of thrivealive
- some leftover beer
- dark corn syrup
- brown sugar
- coffee grounds


Now I've taken all this and added it to a resevoir and added a airstone to it. I've not used but a cupful so far, i've just been letting it sit and brew for the last 2 days, in about another 2 I'll probably half up the tea, strain it out and feed it to my ladies. Hopefully it will be beneficial!



Anyways - On to some pics!


Here's a good lookin little guy, got a bunch of these, more than I can count. These are the mid-level budsites.




This is one of the larger colas filling up, they are some farther along than others, this one is kindof behind, but still getting fat.



A medium large bud



Canopy - as you can see I've ran out of room pretty much, I need to defoliate and re-train some of those branches soon, my light needs to be moved up, but there is no room . I would NOT recomend this strain to someone with a small grow space.




Here's a small popcorn, got tons of these guys, hopefully I can get some more light penetration to help them mature.






So I figure about 2 more weeks untill flush? Mybe 3? I'm not sure at this point. About 10% of the hairs on SOME buds are red, trichromes are filling out, and calyxes are swelling, but i'm not sure if it will speed up from this point, or if it's just slow and steady. Either way this might take a while! I hope it doesn't take more than 3 more weeks tho, i'm getting impatient!

dam those are some glossy lookin leaves!

yo are those the autoflowers? afghan kush ryder? I've got one of those goin right now, just started it like a day ago but im excited to have bud in like 2 months.

One other thing, in that first picture like to the right side it looks like there is just a cut off main stem, did you completely take off the top of the plant er somthin?

yeah, I had it trained out sideways for more shoots and better light penetration and whathaveya, but I used pipe cleaner, and it grew so strong it cut into the cleaner and one day just fell over and was hanging by only a bit, i didn't even notice it. So I had to chop it, (at least I got 4 clones out of it!) so how most of the side shoots are getting thick and should be just fine whenever i flower. I hope.


No this is not a autoflower also, this is just a Afghan Kush Specilized, which I've failed to  find out any info or any grow logs about, I'm shooting in the dark here, I'm trying to go with other similar (i think) strains (ak 47, hindu kush) but I'm getting mixed signals about actual Kush genetics. I'm spun right now on lineage/genetics so I hope I get it all figured out.

Also, using RooTech (technaflora!) cloning gel has made almost a 50% difference in my clones taking off. The areas where I covered in gel had great growth in just 8 days...

here are a few small clones I was experimenting with, these are only 14 days old. These are NOT AK clones, but Flo.

WOS: Afghan Kush is an AWESOME land race. You won't be disappointing. I got some in my grow log, but not the specialized ones.

Yeah, I'm not sure exactly what they did as far as crossbreeding/genetics for the 'specilized' part, but apparently it was AK landrace crossed with an awesome male of some type, and feminized. I guess.




more pics to come in a bit, flowering is coming on strong, and I'm going to be trying to capture as much of this as I can for future reference to others. This strain is making me smile, it's wonderful for first time growers.

I'm learning so much this first time around, I hope to one day support a few patients and focus on what I love.

nice those clones are lookin good. maann my first round of clones didn't go so well, they've been goin for like a 2 weeks now, maybe a little more and the roots still arent coming through the rockwool, i mean they are rooted but i cant see them. and so i figured maybe they needed a little nutes, gave them a very weak solution and idk what its from could be from that maybe too hot idk but like 3 of them are mostly brown, and the others are starting to brown from the tips down. going to try another round soon, plants are alot farther along now so they will be some really nice clones, i could cuz some 1-2 feet. Can you tell me your technique for cloning? i kno how to cut and everything just start from planting them, u dip it into the gel and everything and then what do u do?

gracias :thumbup:

for my cloning I usually do the normal things, nothing special, but I'll detail it a bit.


-start with a branch that has @ least one set (node) of leaves I can remove, and another set of true leaves.

-I cut with scissors first, and quickly plunge into water.
-making a sharp 45 degree cut with a sharp razor about 1/2 inch below where i removed the leaves (first node)
- cover tip and as far up to the first node I can get
-place into small container of coco fiber that I have flushed with water, and then soaked with 1ml of Thrive Alive per 500 ml of water.
- I DO NOT cover my clones, as it's humid where I live, I spray with water once a day, and water once a day with a solution of 2ml DM A+B and 1ml of Thrive Alive.



Usually, this give me good root growth like I posted above in about 12-14 days.

do you know what temp it is where your clones are? i think it may be to hot where mine are maybe.

I totally also just removed a LOT of the fanleaves. I perhaps Might have stepped over the line with this, I read about removing all the fan leaves, but I might have removed too much. i took basically ALL of the fan leaves, like all except the ones that were at budsites.


I am scared this will degenerate most of what I have accomplished, but this run I have basically chalked up to experience, and even though i'm stoked, I need to try the things that I have in my mind for the future. The trimming technique I have read helps increase yeild, help lower budsites to grow fuller and denser by letting more light come through, and (hopefully) allow the plant to focus more on the budsites than maintinence of fan leaves.


now , i'm hoping fan leaves don't contain so many nutes and foods for the buds that i just wiped out the whole plants life of storing up for budding, that probably is most true.


But I blieve with hydro, I can give the plant all the nutes it needs to form good buds, and perhaps it was just using it's fan leaves for vertical growth, and now I've reached my idea height, i remove them allowing for bud growth.




sooooo... I wait.....pics to come and hopefully some smiles. I took a risk on this one, and I hope it pays off. Wish me luck!

here is what Coda said in another thread here here
Quote:



Now this isn't directed at you, this was just something i got from that other thread that he told someone who was asking about trimming, so don't be offended or anything
Quote:

coda said:
Imagine this, you have a solar panel array that has a few big panels and some small panels.  If you remove the big panels do you think you'll receive as much power now?

Same thing applies to plants, you remove all those large fans and you've effectively removed the power generators for your plants.  You should only trim fan leaves when they become too diseased to live, are dead, or are eaten to shreds by pests.  Otherwise you're much better off tucking the fan leaves away under some stems or buds.

Now, I will say removing one or two for better light penetration is not that big of a deal, but when you remove most of your large fans you're just screwing yourself.

Yeah, I have read the pros and cons of removing those fanleaves, and I decided that I was running this as an experiment first time around and I was trying to Top it for multiple 'main' branches, and I did, it worked well, i was also wanting to try the ScOG technique, and I did, it worked out well (I see some ways of improving) and then I wanted to try this removal technique, with high hopes, but I'm willing to take a hit.


I'm in this for knowledge, I'm not really in the position/place to go crazy and whatnot, so right now i'm just trying to get as much knowledge on this as I can with this grow so i can hopefully provide to a few paitients one day quality meds...


so , yeah, i might have bit a bullet with this,and not come out with a good ending to this story, but this will be a good report for those in the future with any strain about removing all the fan leaves.



again, wish me luck!

this a pic somewhere I was reading about , the plant on left was trimmed and the plant on the right (younger i believe) was not.


not a true source of fact, but a lead towards experimenting.

another I found





it seems at least equal in that last shot...



and a quote from somone I have found that has impressed me with their knowledge and experience...

"If you were to defoliate a nice looking leafy setup near harvest day to inspect the structure and distribution of buds you will then see that there are far fewer budsites and lower development is considerably diminished. Both conditions add up to lower yield. The very top buds will have a slight edge in cluster density and size but who cares. I've seen big buds. Big deal. Mine are big enough now, but there are a lot more."

yeah, that is kindof what I was going for, CAB actually was my inspiration for getting started growing, I was always on the brink, but his G13 haze grows really made me get the itch.


I'm going to post a few post-op pics later tonight, right now she's sleepin and hopefully having good dreams...

So what your saying is don't trim during flowering because it reduces yield?

We'll, the goal in to increase yeild by removing fan leaves that block light to lower budsites, allowing them to develop stronger.

Also possibly allowing your plant to focus more energy on bud production than keeping up those excess leaves.


But it's not been proven totally yet I don't guess.

not much to report, except that everything is moving right along, not anything to warrant any pics as of yet.



As far as the defoliation goes, it's almost like I never did it to begin with, the leaves that were left from the first removal grew right into all the space that was made, and caused the canopy to become very thick, cutting of light to the lower budsites. I once again removed a large handful of leaves from her again to allow better light/air flow, it seems like this is helping to focus energy into the budsites and smaller leaves, but there are PLENTY of leaves left for production i'm sure.

Pics to come later, i'm lazzzzzzy.

tidbit of joy for the day!


I was inspecting a few lower buds today, and it seems the smaller buds just below the canopy are developing trichromes/resin glands a bit faster than the top buds, I guess this is due to the lower buds not being as big, andprobably maturing faster. Anyways, i rubbed a bunch of fan leaves that have noticeable crystals, and instantly said to myself " Smells like Sugar Daddy!!!" which is an additive I use for flavor and taste, or overall help with plant.


I'm going to start using awesome blossom I think soon... HOpefully for better flower production!


Anyways, we shall see what this has to offer in the end, and perhaps I will use it in future grows. at least its good info for other growers.



Peace.

Now this isn't directed at you, this was just something i got from that other thread that he told someone who was asking about trimming, so don't be offended or anything

coda said:
Imagine this, you have a solar panel array that has a few big panels and some small panels.  If you remove the big panels do you think you'll receive as much power now?


Same thing applies to plants, you remove all those large fans and you've effectively removed the power generators for your plants.  You should only trim fan leaves when they become too diseased to live, are dead, or are eaten to shreds by pests.  Otherwise you're much better off tucking the fan leaves away under some stems or buds.

Now, I will say removing one or two for better light penetration is not that big of a deal, but when you remove most of your large fans you're just screwing yourself.







first time grower here.. not much experience, but pretty fair amount of common sense. I gotta say first I respect your sense of adventure, but coda really knows his shit and it makes total sense to me..
if the problem is lack of light to the lower budsites, wouldn't you try bringing the light to them in the form of supplemental side lights, like cfls, or even leds?

I will be watching your experiment carefully though, since I grow outdoors, and can't really supplement light.. Good luck!! :ganja:

I've not got the setup at the moment to run any extras, so I'm trying to make good use of what I have.


As far as the reference to solar arrays, that is right, but I don't believe it to fully play over.


In a solar array, you are able to efficiently lay your panels out, where they are all getting full light, none of them are blocked so you would have to reason to remove a solar panel, it will work fine and produce to its potential.

But with leaves, they are all over the place, blocking each other, and in-efficiently producing for the plant. By removing those, i'm allowing light to better penetrate smaller leaves that are more in direct relation with the budsite, and not just a node fan leaf.


Now, i'm a first time grower too, and I'm not saying that Coda isn't right, or that I shouldn't listen to him, because I have read shit tons of shit and Coda is well respected by me and I will always heed words of advice, I'm not playin that I know it all, but i'm not stupid either.



I have seen tremendous development of the smaller leaves after defoliation, my canopy has more than recovered from removal and I'm not worried at all about having to suppliment light to lower sites as I've cleared away and trained my stems to allow light to pass through all the way to my stem.

Plus, LED's woulnd't be efficient as they woulcn't be close enough I don't think to produce proper lumens down to the lower branches.


But I could stick a CFL right inside the base of the branches and I bet that would really give the lower budsites a kick.


Thanks for the input tho, I've put a lot of thought in this one, but really I have almost as many leaves as when I started, just more smaller ones instead of a bunch of big ones.

This was 8 8





And this was 8 13 , just 5 short days later and 2 small defoliation sessions





the canopy really shot back out after that first heavy sessoin, and I continue to pick at least a few leaves each day to help.

It's like it grows 4 for every 1 i pick! (but it's just present ones getting bigger)

Just my 2 cents from my experience.

Quote:

So a few q's I have I guess:

-how much more do you guys think this has untill I need to start flushing. the seed bank said 55 days of flower for this strain untill harvest, i'm on day 25 or so, so like , 2 weeks and flush 2 weeks?




Okay so if your 25 days in yes give it 2-2 1/2 weeks to keep developing before you start your flush. It could be + or - a few days on the 55. Watch your pistols, and also watch your trichromes to see if they are getting milky or turning amber, in my experience, when i start seeing amber trichs, it is time to start flushing. Depends on the type of high you like tho, milky white trichs are more upidy party high, the amber trichs are gonna get you more stoned, more lazy i prefer this lol.

Quote:

- Is there any recomended nutrients / additives that TRULY are worth adding at this poing to help with the quality of flowers?




Definitely add a cap-full of black strap molasses per gallon of water. Theres many other nutrients/additives that you could add at this point, its all a matter of preference and what you are trying to get out of your buds. For all around danker buds i would suggest snow storm ultra from Humboldt county's own. Although i cannot vouch for this product yet, i am using it right now and i have noticed a steady increase in trichromes, faster than what i am used to. So so far it works great, plus all i have ever heard about it is its great stuff, A++++.

Quote:

- Should I flush 2 weeks? or one week?




Start your flush anywhere from two weeks to 10 days before you chop it down. You can flush it multiple times just to be safe if you want to, what i do is flush it at two weeks, and with one week left i flush again, but i do what i would call a super flush (double the amount of water as a normal flush would be.) I would advise flushing at least 10 days prior, to ensure the plants are properly flushed. one week may work, but seems a little short, other growers may think otherwise, idk.

Quote:

- based on this little amount of info , what final weight would you say from my pics this one plant would give? (I'm hoping for 60 grams)




can't answer that one for ya, pictures aren't quite clear enough for my shitty eyes. Bet harry ballsach could give you a guess within like 20 grams tho!

Quote:

- does the resin/crystals look good for this point? I'm really hoping for a nice frosty bud like the pics of these were from where I got them...




They look alright, should start boosin on the crystals in the next couple weeks, not tryin to insult you nugs AT ALL bro, but so far they look a little bit.. stringy i guess would be the word right now,(more leaves and hairs, less calyxs and crystals) but its early in flowering,so i can't really tell for sure. Trust me, you will have some very frosty nugs when you're done, even regs will be dank if grown properly.



Quote:

- I've had some horrid chunking in the bottom of my Dutch Master Flower B product, is this from  me not shaking it enought? Should I take it back? I'm thinking this might ahve thrown the ratio off of that bottle if some nutes are concentrated in the chunks on bottom. I cannot shake them back into the solution.




Well i don't think you can take it back after you've been using it, but if the chunking is like extremely bad then maybe you could. This isn't really a problem though, i give my bottles a good 1-2 minute vigorous shaking everytime i mix up nutes, and i still get little chunks sometimes, i still just add them to the solution, they disolve right up. Try giving your bottle the most vigorous shake you can for like 3 minutes and see what happens. I'm talkin like grasp that bitch with two hands and just get to shakin that thing like its a baby your trying to interogate or kill lmao.

hope something in there helps u man lemme kno if anythings unclear.

hey and how close are your lights? you see how your leaves are canoeing up some? this is a sign of the lights being to close, try raising them a few inches, or you will end up burning the tops.

Thanks for the reply kickin! Its feedback like yours that really makes me post on these forums, because it's all about feedback and knowledge!


- I'm probably going to do about a 10 day flush, based on my projected hack date, i'm going for slighly amber, but i'm after the uplifting energetic work high, so i'll be getting them down a bit early than most people.

- I believe you about stringy buds, because I have done lots of research and lurking in peoples grow logs, and my buds seem a 'bit' on the smaller side, and not a full as some buds i've seen @ the same flower day. But i've also seen some awfully horrid looking buds too so it gives me hope!

- Yeah, i'm shaking that DM nute bottle everytime I'm around it now, i'll use it to finish it off, but i'm not going to buy Dutch Masters anymore, i'm going to stick with Technaflora or go to Gen Hydro.

- Your pics are well enjoyed! and you can go ahead and pull them down now that I've seen em if ya want, (I feel you about being a little sketch, but I think this forum is pretty safe for a lil guy like me)

- I really like your bud formation on that plant, yours has way better symetrey than mine do and way earlier than mine did! I was just getting hairs at 15 days flower! Awesome!

- I'll probably try that snowstorm Ultra if I can afford, if not I might got with The Awesome Blossom from Technaflora



Keep it real all.

I am heading to my loacl hydroponics store today, and gonna chat with the guy there and get some more info. Gonna shop around and probably get that SnowStorm Ultra if it's priced right. Going to search more info! Updates later.



Today is the last day of week 4 also!

I am new to growing and will start my first grow soon using the
SCROG method as well. But isnt the point to keep all branches below
the screen?? Or do you just have to do that for a certain amount of time??

If someone could fill me in on that it would be greatly appreciated.

Anyways, the grwo is looking nice aspore :thumbup:

you've got them on 12/12 right? i kno thats a stupid question but i'm just making sure, because that would be a very obvious reason for the slow bud formation if u didnt.

- I got a one liter bottle of Snowstorm Ultra for 30.00. My guy at the hydro store didn't know too much, except a few of his friends used it and they continue to buy it, so it must do something.


- I am in 12/12, but my humidity and temps are soaring. Right now where I live, the humidity is like 90% everyday, and the temps are in the 100's. I'm going to be working on re-designing my exhaust system tonight, so that should help lower my temps, so that should help speed up my growth.



- It's my understanding that the screen is only used to help train your branches out (instead of growing up) and then whenever you train them out for a while, whenever you stop, they will start growing up again, this spreads your plants branches and allows better light penetration and keeps your plant a little shorter. So ScOG tek is used to help get lower buds light and keep the plant shorter/bushier. (At least that is what I think it's mainly used for...)


- I did my first Foliar spray of SnowStorm last night, so hopefully I'll see some results in a few days. update and pics to come later.




Thanks all for checking this out! Keep up the input!

Been doing a lot of comparing of pictures online of flowers in week 5 and my flowers, and mine seem to be lacking...


Mine do not seem to have filled out as much as I would like, I'm worried that these buds will end up light and airy and not as good as I would hope.



I'm wondering if my high temps and low air flow could contribute to this slow growth? I'm buying another large fan today to hopefully get some circulation going, as of now I have no fan on my ladies, I don't know why i just haven't really thought of it till now. (d-oh!)

Also, going to work on that exhaust to lower temps, perhaps that will help get my growth back on track, right now i'm kindof saddened.



But , on the other hand, my buds have taken on a 'candy' like smell, probably some of the technaflora nutes I'm using. I like it I guess, but hope it matures into something better.

pics to come, i'm out of batteries.

I'm wondering if my high temps and low air flow could contribute to this slow growth? I'm buying another large fan today to hopefully get some circulation going, as of now I have no fan on my ladies, I don't know why i just haven't really thought of it till now. (d-oh!)





Well that explains alot, your plants need a fresh supply of co2 and without any circulation the plant is suffocating, think of it like a human deprived of oxygen.

High temps are not good either. You may want to be careful about that, your plant could get too stressed and seed. The fan should solve this problem. If the fan is going to be right on your plant get an oscillating one to reduce stress. And try to get your temps at least around like 84*, 85*F if you can.

Don't worry we'll help you get your nugs lookin dank bro, don't lose hope!!

Thanks for the hope!


I have gotten temps down and air flow at least tripled, with fresh air supply. So if that is the issue then it should start looking good from here!


ALso, I have read that the way to judge how far into flowering the plant is, is to count from when it FIRST showed pistils, or sex. I only have begun to see pistils and signs of budsites about the 1st of this month, putting this REALLY only about 3 weeks of 'actual' flower. They have been officially flowering for 30 days, but maybe they were a little slow in the beginning, and this means that they will take a week or so longer than I thought. if this is the case, i will feel better about the growth @ this time.

temps holding steady @ 74 w/ good airflow.


I can swear I almost see an improvement in just a few short hours after lowering temps/incresing fresh air/air flow. Some of my more mature buds have gained a darker color, and the little spiky leave in the budsite have matured out more, looking more like I would like to see...


Hopes are up!

Well, its been about 2 days or so since improvement to conditions.



All are holding well @ 75 and air flow is excellent.


I have lowered my use of additives for a few days, just givin em simple a+b and snowstorm. Going to start by adding half of what I had before in there, I think i might have gotten the PH out of whack. I will be going to look for a meter and some PHu/d soon.


I'm seriously thinking about maxibloom for my base nutes next run. What you guys think?



My buds seem to have really started taking off; calyxes are swelling up nice and hairs are still all white. Crystals are starting to show well and my leaves are getting a deep green color like when the plant was first grown. I think my enviromental issues, and some nute issues, coupled with a bunch of other little 'first time grower' issues, has caused this plant not to be her best, but I think I might have learned more by this so next round i'll be ready.


Anyways, i'll get pics soon, i'm late for work.

Hit my ladies with the 2nd foliar spray of Snowstorm today before lights out. Using 5ml/gal, spraying till light runnof, tops and bottoms of leaves.


Buds are actually starting to fill out a bit, I really think that my high temps and light leak before were causing slow growth, now that those issues are fixed, it's really starting to take form.



Still not impressed, but moreso than a few days ago...

So it's been appx 42 days at this point, but I think the slowing up in the beggining from stresses makes it more like 35 days.


Looking good, not much to take pics of yet, probably in a few more days. Still not super impressed, but I will have some smokeable herb I believe. Enough to last a month I hope, 2 months is my target. If I can achieve that, then I'll be satisfied.

    #468343 - 08/27/10 03:13 AM (9 years, 11 months ago)

thanks for the support man!


I'm not sure about the snowstorm, I've only added it in about 1/2 recomended dosage in my nutes, and 2 times foliar. I will say tho, I doesn't seem to hurt!


I really think the 'Sugar Daddy' I'm using is making the most impact at the moment. It's is making the overall smell of the plant very sweet, I like it a lot, but I'm hoping a bit will flush out in the end, and maybe convert into a more deep sweetness than it is now. I've actually cut my Sugar Daddy doses in half also, because i just don't want to pump em full of crap for taste if it doesn't help potency.



"The unique combinations of ingredients in SugarDaddy are vital for all stages of plant growth and development. During the seedling stage SugarDaddy rapidly accelerates sprout growth and prepares plants for transplanting. During the vegetative stage SugarDaddy promotes strong plant structure which is a critical precursor to final yield success.

Of maximum benefit during both transition and reproduction, SugarDaddy fosters healthy stage progression by limiting detrimental transition related stressors. Further, the lower nitrogen levels often found in flowering stage fertilizers are overcome by the use of SugarDaddy; as carbohydrate, protein, and fatty acid synthesis is achieved vigorous growth rates are maintained along with the production of essential oils and the aroma value of flower buds and fruits. "



So yeah, for the production of aroma, i'll say sugar daddy is kicking ass on that end. It smells like candy, striaght up. Don't know if that's for everyone, but EVERYONE who has smelled my buds say INSTANTLY that it's Sugar Daddy (or candy for those who aren't nute-savvy)



Now I think i'm ready to start loading a bit more on my lady. I'm going to be using the highest ppm of nutes in the next 3 weeks , (if that's how long it's untill I flush, giving that a total of 28 more days, or abot 70+ total days)

I got some Beastie Blooms today, and it's like some powerful shit.

http://www.hydroempire.com/store/images/beastiebloomzjar_02%20(2).jpg


0 - 50 - 30  -  !!!!


that's some crazy stuff. I guess I dilute it or something? I didn't get directions, just a ziploc baggie from a friend. Well, i'll be using this starting today in a small form, 1ml a gal or so, untill I see no negetive effects and bump it up slowly.


I am also begginning to want to kick myself as I have NOT been PH testing anything at all since I started, and I'm sure that could have had a MAJOR effect on my ladies.


I'm going to get some PH up/down and a meter ASAP. Maybe that will be the final key to getting these ladies to bulk up and become something to be proud of.

ya man, if your ph is off it could be a major problem. it will cause the plant to lockout nutrients, which means it will not get the things it needs and a whole number of different things can occur. but they don't look like they have nute lockout though luckily.

I use that snowstorm ALOT, i foliar feed twice in the darkness with 4 ml per gallon, and i use it in every feeding at 5 ml per gallon. My nugs are smelling reaaaly sweet too, but this strain always has. I use a teaspoon of blackstrap molases with every watering also, to sweetin them up some more. I may try your micros next round, just don't have the funds right now, i just invested in a real nice a/c and ventilation setup.

I also used this stuff called bushmaster when i started flowering, from the same folks who make
snowstorm ultra. It 98% eleminates and basically skips the stretch stage, and the plants begin to bud immediately, and bush out. It also shaves 2 weeks off your flowering time. May be why my nugs which are just starting week 4 look like about week 5 or 6

  I will scroll up and check out ur update after i post this lol (to stoned and lazy and i already started typin.)

I'm not super impressed with Technaflora, but it's what I have got right now, so i'm making it work.


I actually got a whole lineup of nutes from Technaflora for winning a costume contest @ Wakarusa.


I'll eventually go with GH lucas formula once I have to buy some more nutes, but as of now i'm gonna finish these guys off.


Yeah, I do have a lot I add, but I'm only doing a super bunch once a week.


I PH tested today with litmus paper, it says it's about a 6 with everything added, but strips can be hard to tell exactly. So i'm still waiting for a meter and wahtnot.



Yeah, i'm getting excited with the way these are filling out, hopefully they will really get dense in the end.


Well thanks again for your input! It's truly good to talk with people who know what I am trying to achieve!

Well, my buds are really starting to take off... I still don't want to get my hopes up, but damn i'm starting to get impressed.


the main colas are starting to thicken up as I hoped, a few of the 'hopeful' buds to be will take up most of my hand. I am still setting my sights low, so I don't get dissapointed.




Well, I need to update the main log, but it's late and i'm fuckin tired from work. Which is hard. And sucks.




Send your good vibe-nutes my way so my ladies can shine! This is the one and only grow I am going to do for the projected future, so hope it turns out right!




p.s. like your sig kickin.

Things are starting to move along quite nicely. I've been busy and haven't had time for pics or anything, but the buds are really starting to get fatter. Most are getting a lot of resin, it smells SUPER sweet, i'm in love. I'm not sure how long i've got left, I'm going to say 10-14 days untill flush. I'm hoping at least.

I've done one more Snowstorm Foliar, and another 1/2 dose of Beastie Bloomz into my nutes. Since this is my first grow, I wouldn't know if this is helping or not, but it doesnt' seem to hurt.

I still think I'm having PH issues, i'm in need of a meter, and I thinkn i'll look for one soon. I'm just broke at the moment.



Pics to come soon.

i think uve still got a while longer than 10-14 days before flush. i'd say about 20-25 till u should flush, flowering takes 8-10 weeks depending on the strains, some are longer and some are shorter. and sense your flowering was delayed, you should start your actual flowering time from you first saw signs of flowering.

That's exactly what I was thinkin, about the delayed start and whatnot.


So really it's like the start of week 6 really I think. Even tho it's 2 days into week 7. Something Like that. Either way, i'm going to keep the time the same, and just remember why I had a 90 day flowering time!!!


So in all actuallity, today is day 51 of flowering.




Anyways, I also think I know why I have had slowish growth, I got a better PH test kit today, and after carefully measuring out my nutes, I found that my PH is just a little high. I think like possibly 6+ . So i'm getting some PH down asap and try to bring it down a bit.

I'm really excited about getting my PH corrected, I think that will be the icing on the cake for my ladies and really make these worth while.

Small bump on nute info. I have been adding PH down to my nutes to help them get to about 5.5+. I hope this will help them finish out a bit stronger and quicker.


I am using this formula right now, I know it's heavy, but these ladies seem to like it.


Technaflora Boost and bloom @ 1700ppm

TF - Route 66 @ 5ml gal
TF - Sugar Daddy @ 10ml gal
TF - Thrive Alive @ 5 ml gal
Humbolt - Snowstorm @ 5ml gal (+ foliar once every 4 days before lights out)
Fox Farms - Beastie Bloomz @ Tblspn / Gal (5ml)



Yeah, again, I know it's a lot, but i'm pushing my lady now, and she's eatin it all up.


Also, I've made a tea to use with some kelp extracts, a little thrive alive, route 66 , some MyCostim, dark corn syrup, brown sugar and water. Let this sit and bake for a few days, and add it in . I'm going to wait 7 days untill I use it, so I'll update that too.

(P,S) All these random posts are just for future info when I can use this info in a more professonal log. Its easier to update this way.

Why is it that I have like 20 batteries in my drawers/couch/junk boxes, but none of them work? Grr! I don't see why I haven't thrown them away. Anyways, I'm still out of batteries to take pics, but i'm going to get some today.



Anyways, things are starting to really look up I think, the buds are really starten to fatten up, and the calyxes are swelling with trichrome production increasing.

I have noticed a heavier sweeter smell, like good dank, starting to strenghthen. Also, whenever I touch or run my finger over the buds, it's INSTANTLY Oily and sticky, very.

I think that they might finish a bit quicker than I recently thought, but still about 3 weeks from now till I chop. I think 2 weeks untill I flush from this point. That would put it @ 77+- days. Considering my issues in the beginning, this would be awesome.


Well , wish me luck the home stretch is in sight! This is like being pregnant, and i'm just ready to have this thing already!


pics to come I promise.

still haven't gotten batteries for the camera, so here's a small text update.



-Calyxes are starting to swell on certain buds, other buds look young as hell, I see a large difference inthe stages grown between some of the buds.


- I have pretty much dark green leaves on the plant as a whole, but some of the buds leaves have turned yellow ,and the buds seem to have 'new' growth on top of them, they are really weird yellow growths, kindof hard. It's strange i haven't read or seen a picture of anythign like it before really, so I'm anxious to get a pic to see what this is.

-Smell is very sweet and a little kerosene, just the way I like.

-resin and oil is good, anytime you just touch a bud your fingers are oily and sticky.


I think that 3 weeks from now should be the chop. 1 more week maybe 10 days untill I start flushing I hope.




Here's a question: Do the hairs on the buds need to be 80% dark or more before I flush? Or is it okay to flush before they turn dark? LIke if 50% of the hairs are dark?

Also, I am noticing a lot of yellowing of the leaves and weird growth on the tops of some of the buds. It almost seems as if they are still having new growth, but it's really hard and yellow. All the leaves surrounding the bud have completely yellowed. These buds are right under the light, but farther away than some buds, but perhaps it still is heat stress.




Its that little , hard, yellow growth on top of the bud. (the light is just there to help with the picture)

I'm unsure if this is what 'foxtail' is but i'm going to look into it. I have other budsites that are exibiting yellowing of the leaves and similar growth, just not so advanced.

Some normal buds are having more of the 'foxtail' trait I would think, as some of the buds are growing little bud spires out of the normal buds. Hard to get a picture of them, but I will try as they mature.

Here is a small bud I clipped today, I'm drying it out in a box with a fan. Its still really wet, and smells like chlorophyll but it's kindof sticky and has a few small trichromes. Not super bad overall, but I'm hoping they mature a lot better than this one!

So things are just moving on slow and steady, nothing much to report back. But I did go recently and visit a friend who took a clone of my plant @ the same time I started flowering. So his has been flowering exactly the same amount of time as mine. He is doing a CFL grow tho, very small setup and his plant is only 2 feet tall. But MAN this thing has taken off, it must be about 1 1/2 - 2 weeks ahead of mine! I think it's due to a few reasons, little things that all add up to slow growth. He is using the same nutes that i am, but I see now that having a more controlled enviroment can really decrease flowering time!

His plant, has TONS of trichromes all up and down the leaves, lots more in the buds, the calyxes are more mature and 50% of hairs are BROWN, (mine are just light orange if not white) His are FAT and for being a short plant under CFL it really is a amazing sight. I'm going to get a few pics of that and post them up for CFL advocates. I was really impressed, but it makes me even more happy to know that mine should be like that soon!!

Also, I believe that my plant needs wayyyyy more water, so Im going to water 3/4 strength nutes, 2 times a day now. Because whenever I water, before I water again, it feels dry 3-4 inches down where the roots start, so I think I need to water less , but more often. I have a 5 gallon bucket for the container, and it's FULL of roots, and all the plant material that I have, it's probably very hard for it to feel all of it's leaves with just a few gallons every day or so, I need to be more controlled with my feeding.


I flushed last night, and am adding a tea today, let that sit for 12 hours or so, then lightly water with 1/2 strenght, then every 12 hours with 3/4 strength after that.


does this sound like a good way of letting my plant get more water? If anyone has suggestions about rootbound plants this far into flowering, I'm not sure what I can do other than water it more.

yo i wouldn't water 2 times a day, you are just asking for root rot.  When you do water, just try watering with more water. As you water pour it all around evenly on the top of the soil so that it doesnt just drip out the bottem, and you can lift the pot and see how heavy it is to judge how much water is in it.  I have one plant that gets 1-3 pounds heavier every watering, i believe its due to a more complex root system that holds the water better than the rest. Don't overwater tho man, especially not this late in the game!

yeah, that's true, I'll probably just flush for another day, then start in on a little higher nutes I suppose.


I have some leaves that are yellowing from the inside out, I don't know what this could be other than NItrogen, so I guess I need more nutes.


I'll get some pics soon...

then again, I do have a 5 gallon bucket FULL of roots, and they probably are sucking that water up so fast, root rot might not be an issue. Like I said, it's pretty dry after 24 hours, I will check and see how it is after 12 and perhaps give it a small watering at that point. Slowly increase and see if that helps maybe? Ehh... I probably will just keep it slow and steady. As long as they eventually end up dank, that's fine with me.

Yeah ,sudden info. Drama and craziness to say the least.


I have really only 3 weeks till the move begins, and my rent is up in 4.



So I have like 1 week to go, then 2 of flush, then hopefully I can trim and dry what I have before I leave.


I hate bitches. they fucked up my work .

Last night, I trimmed a SHIT TON of small buds that  I know won't be ready in time for the move. I removed most of the lower branches and some pretty good size buds in hopes this will kick the really big colas up and speed their time up. I would have gotten a fucking ton of good buds if I had the time, but I just don't. this sucks.


So I am drying a bunch of white haired-premature budsites, probably going to make bubble out of it all, probably not worth smoking.


Really send your good vibes my way, and my plants way, I really hope that my buds mature in time. I actually cried when I had to chop last night, It's really painful to put this much work into this and have this happen.

Thanks ! I am really hoping for real these guys get fat quick, I'm going to be sad if they don't reach full potential.


The Flo plant I have is no where near anything, so I'll have to kill that ladie too. Sucks.


Oh well, I've learned  lot from this grow, and once I can do it with all of my ability, it should be a friggin fantastic thing.

Still mad tho. sux.

yo it IS possible to transport it and keep goin,  You could put the plant in a big box, like one for a dishwasher, or a washing machine, dryer, refridgerator, anything like that and then you can just move it in plain view. nobodys going to ask any questions. I have done it 3 times before, and it was smooth all three times.
its better than killing the poor girl... you could send her to me! so sad...

well the thing is, there is a scrog deep down inside the branches that got swallowed by sheer size a long time ago. (see early pics) Also, in order to access my grow area, I have to go through a small area, one that would require me to completely turn the plant on it's side. It woudl be difficult at be, plus, I would have to move my light, with all air ducts, fans, nutes and whatever else comes along.


I'm just gonna have faith that in 3 weeks it will be ready to chop.


Now I just need to figure out when to flush...






//P.S I DO have a friend that will adopt my stalk after I chop, i'm chopping carefully to try to re-veg if god willing, I would love to preserve this strain.



//pps. I also have dried out some of those smaller buds to the smoking point, I know it still early but DAMN! I got a great high off just a few little guys! At least I should have stash up untill new years!!! That's what I was hoping for really so it's not all taht bad!

I also have the knowledge that I can grow mutha fuckin' TREEEZ!


I can't wait till I can get in cahoots with a collective.

Yeah, when it rains is right.


I was wasted, but passed sobriety test, so I didn't get DUI, just 'following to closely'

Plus my insuranced had run out 2 weeks prior

and my liscense was expired

and the tags on my car



all these things were within 2 weeks of each other, but I kept puttin getting them renewed because i've been so buusy.


F M L



But anyways, my buds are getting way better looking daily, but Unfortunately , I have set all dates for my plant as of now.



I'll start flushing on the 28th, and I HAVE to chop on the 5th. I will only have untill the 13th to move. So I need that 8 days to trim/dry it all. I cannot be moving into a new apt and hangin buds up right away.

I figure 8 days to get even the biggest buds dry enough to place in a cardboard box/fan setup, and then hide that when I move and pray that it dries well.



Any suggestions on what I might can do to help dry it descreetly? I really want to dry/cure this well, so I'm not looking to dry it quick, only descreetly.



Anyways, I'm tired and my back is killing me.

Le'sigh.


Well, things aren't looking too well in the plant world.


A shit ton of leaves around the main buds have turned yellow, brittle and begun to crack. Like fully yellow. The other smaller buds are fine, but everything is moving soooooo slowly. I only have 2 weeks untill I chop, so I'm really worried.


The buds are still very airy, pretty much all the hairs on my bigger buds are still white. Sux.


There are crystals, but not as many as I had hoped, I mean, it's sticky, but nothing to brag about.


I have chopped a few test buds over the last week or so, and they have turned out fairly good, I have not had to purchase any bud in 2 weeks now, and I'm actually VERY happy over that, which is my reason for growing, so that's good that I achieved my goal.

I'm just stuck on 2 things now, I'm not fufilled because I didn't get the time I needed or the enviroment to make this worth the effort, and I also am really wondering why my leaves are dying off right now.


The leaves are cracking dry, completely yellow/white and the buds are starting to droop themselves. One whole cola has turned on its side and saggged way down. :frown:

I was thinking I over-nuted and I cut out my nutes for the last 2 or 3 days except one half dose once. I am beginning to wonder if it's actually not ENOUGH nutes, (nitrogen?) and that is what is causing this. I'm worried about burning them but I guess I need to start back with nutes full strength asap.

I flushed really well today so I can have a clean start tommorrow. I hope I can get them back on track. I really would have to loose them now, I really need more time.



On the other hand, I see the potential of this strain, and I would say if it was perfect conditions this strain probably would be very impressive, or at least good breeding stock perhaps. I dunno, but based on my major lack of skills, and the enviroment, and timing and all that. This turned out fairly good.



Well, wish me luck, and really if anyone has any input on the yellowing of leaves and leaning of buds, let me know, I'm stumped and want to make the best of these buds.

Well I think the time is coming close for harvest, I really wish I had more time but I think it will end up better than nothing.


I figure that most of the leaning of the buds is just from weight, as they are pretty big.

Also, the yellowing of the leaves seems to not be bothering the buds themselves, which are nice and light green, so that doesn't scare me as much now .

This is a canopy shot, you can see how most of the leaves have died and the buds are just crazy and all over the place. there are little 'foxtail' like spires on most of the sides of the larger colas.




this is a branch I harvested yesterday, just one of the side branches but it held a pretty good bit. I'm guessing over 30 grams when dry, but we have yet to see.



One of the buds from that same branch , but outside for better light



and the smallest off that branch




Here is a macro shot, from what I see these are about 20% cloudy / 80% clear and hopefully should all become cloudy soon (on the other buds)






well, projected harvest is in one week, so hopefully things will ripen up by then! wish me luck!

HEY HEY!!!!


Things are lookin up!!


It seems that all the little things I have done lately have worked! I was worried about it not being finished before I move in 10 days, but I really think that it will be pretty much ready by then!!!


The growth has really exploded in the past week. I have noticed about 60% of all the hairs are red, but some buds have totally red hairs. The trichromes are getting bulbous heads, and a few have started to 'lean' . (I dont' have a microscope to check em, but just with my eyes..)


Well I harvested a big branch (as seen in a few posts above) and it turned out really well, but it was wayy more premature than what is left, so I'm really excited to know I will be getting quality stash after all!!


Plus I made some cold water extraction hash yesterday, and MAN! I've been smiling ever since! I haven't had to buy herb in 3 weeks today! I've saved about $200 so far!!!!


/packing up some of my own buds

//sprinkle wif hash

//add more hash


////smokeeeeeeee



and its sooo good. Mission go.

Harvest time!!


SO I harvested on the 4th. It wasn't fully ready, but I had to do it.


I ended up getting just over 10 oz's and about 6 grams of bubble hash.



I lost my camera in themove so thats why i hven't put up any pics latly.


The buds are nice and big, a little fluffy but smell good and have some good crystals. I believe this could have been excellent if grown properly.


The high is all head, just a hit or so has me smiling and good for hours. The hash can make me high as hell, or if i smoke too much, knock me right the f out.


I have stash for a long time now, I have fully achieved my mission for this grow. Learned a hell of a lot, and cannot wait to be able to do it right in the future.


Now time for Harvest Fest!

thnkx. I'm relieved to have it all over with. But i'm redy to try again.


I'll definetly try coco again one day, but I would set up a feeder system, hand watering a plant like that gets a little tiresome, I can't imagine 10 or so!

I would actually do my next grow in soil, just to see how I do in that area, a little less work on my part, but In my life I have found I cannot dedicate that much time for the plants as I would like, so I need to go with something a little simpler. but we shall see.


I like this strain, but wasn't exactly what my highest hopes would be for buds, it is okay stuff tho, gets me super blasted if I want to go that route, so I'm cool. Definetly not of medical grade tho, but good.

I'm very proud but it's an itch that you catch, you see your first harvest and only think about how you could improve. Nothing seems good enough at any point, must get bigger and better.

Well i'm off. I'm probably going to get a few pics a clean this log up after that. pece!
