Helping out
    #511007 - 01/05/11 12:32 AM (5 years, 10 months ago)

Once every couple of years a friend asks me to help them do their first grow.  This is one that was just recently completed.

  • Northern Lights FEM from Nirvana
  • 5 weeks from seed planting to 12/12 switch
  • 8 weeks exactly in flower
  • 400w HPS
  • FFOF w/ extra perlite and medium grain coco-coir
  • amended with GH Flora series
  • in shop location where night time temperatures fell to 40f and daytime was up to 75f
  • all water was distilled and pH balanced to 6.5
  • Plant Success myco-goodies w/ molasses were fed every 2-3 waterings until week 3 of flowering


My friend seems very happy with his harvest.  Some of the leaf colors came out looking very Jamaican inspired.  Buds are very tight.  Seems a bit leafy, but the leaves we trimmed back to are thick with trichs.

This was his first grow and I can't say whether or not he did anything goofy while I wasn't around.  A lot of the first timers I help think they can do "helpful experimentation", but it usually causes issues.  Besides the ultra cold night time temps, I think this one went as expected.

For the most part, this reminds me of the NL from 20 years ago.  The main difference I found were that this plant developed an aroma that is like rubbing alcohol with a splash of lemon.  I remember it having a light earthy and musty smell.  Also, some areas of bud are pushing in to the light teal/blue range.  That was really unexpected.  In my flash those areas almost looked washed-out.

My friend took a wet pinch and fired it up.  It smelled like burnt lawn debris, but that was cause it was wet.  He choked like a SOB.  After 2 hits he stopped.  I think he got much much higher than expected cause he got really quiet.

Anyway I hope you enjoy the couple of pics I took.  I have been wanting to contribute more to the site and this seemed like a start.

I love the fact that while you no longer grow for yourself, you still help new growers. Beautiful buds, it seems that you haven't lost your touch since you stopped :awesomenod:

I love everything about how cannabis grows.  The control we have learned with it is amazing.  I would grow it all over my yard and give it away if it were legal.  Helping friends gives me a way to keep interacting with the plants.  I consume too little to do my own grows; although, I am sure one day the temptation will hit me to plug in a 1000w and pop some sativa or haze seeds.  Maybe when I retire...
