chopped #3 and did some LST to #1. will probably pull it down further tomorrow.

I'm probably going to chop #2 and #4 as soon as I know their sex and I see some more pistils #1, or maybe earlier in the case of #2, which is not looking impressive.

I froze all the stems and leaves from #3. Gonna make some cannabutter tomorrow and put it on popcorn.  :awebigvaped:

Anyway, I did a res change and switched to second week nutes (grow-micro-bloom-big bud-bud candy). A couple days early because I didn't change the nutes ~3 days or so before flowering, probably ten days ago.

The plants kind of stalled out over the last 24-48 hours, or at least, they didn't grow any taller. Fairly nice canopy up top, so I swapped the bulb to the HPS. Much better light penetration.

Anyway... I'm really looking forward to bud development LOL.

I want six ounces. But I'll be happy with five and I'd settle for four.

:nyan:

I didn't see any sign of sex in the "#3" pic at all :confused: Why did you chop it?

Looked male to me.

#3 preflowers
http://i1092.photobucket.com/albums/i418/420HippoSex/log%202/IMG_0269.jpg

I needed the space, so I pulled it. The smaller three were just getting covered by #1.

I pulled #2 last night because it was really tiny and completely covered, and also I spotted male preflowers (same as pictured) yesterday.

#4 looks female but I'm not completely sure yet. I may pull it even if it is female, if it can't reach above the canopy, but I'll keep the clones in that case.

Tonight I will flush again and begin the 4th week's nutes.

All is going good, other than the lack of space and some burning that caused. They're done vertical growth though I hope, so I'll just have to try to tame the buds as they develop.

These pics were taken yesterday.





As for my clones, I was worried for a while that they might be fucked, because I had the pumps on 24/7 for the first ten days without even a fan. The stems were rotting. I put a fan on it and it helped, but once I put the pump on a timer (30/30), the roots popped and everything is good.

I am not using H202 or sensizym at this point because my temps are under control and there isn't any rot. I have found the combination very effective though when there are issues to take care of.

I put down the money (before I ran out) for a Purple Days vaporizer made from Fiddleback maple with a bison skin base.



I don't expect it for a couple months, but I'm looking forward to it! I picked it over the extreme Q because it is stealthy and will potentially last forever, so it can follow me on my journeys...

Plants 1 and 4 were female BTW. I moved four and they've both been bent up with LST. The clones are running in water with about 150PPM of nutes. I will probably future clones and mothers water with a PPM under 300.

Next time will be much easier since I'll have clones to start with. I am not sure what I will run next - same growbox, new growbox, or 1000w. It's going to get cold in the winter though and I don't think I will be able to continue venting outside, so I will need to redesign it. I had it vent just into the same room and the humidity went up like crazy over a day.

I really like this aero setup though. In the future, I will stay with aero.

I raised the roof four and a half inches. Would have done more but then I'd have to buy wood. I'm hoping it'll be enough. Shit is difficult because I've got probably forty pounds of carbon filter on top of everything.

Paranoid as fuck. Shit stunk up the room good for a few minutes while I had it apart with the exhaust off. I don't want to risk it again in the future, especially as it gets further into flower. (in the 4th week now)

I live in a shitty wood apartment building - shared hallway and shit - at least one cop living somewhere here. I can hear music from the floor above and below me. It's like I'm a Jew living in Nazi Germany - too afraid to talk in their own apartments for fear of being overheard by snitching neighbors.

I use blankets, rubber, door sweeps, and such to keep the sound and vibrations to a minimum. You can barely hear the fan with your ear to the door, but the person under me may hear vibrations in the night. Have done all I can to prevent it, but I can't be sure.

Morning after the lift, I see a notice on the outer door of the building that says there's going to be a fire detector test at the end of the week and a "maintenance inspection". :tinfoil: I'll be around then though so I don't anticipate any issues...

I ended up killing my smallest clone in a fit of paranoia, so I'm down to 5 plants total - in an attempt to skate under the new mandatory minimum sentencing. I'm too pretty to go to jail. :ass2mouth:

This grow is medical, not commercial, but I have not made an attempt to make it legal because I don't have a specialist to give me what I need, I would need the landowner's agreement to grow here, and because Harper (through HC) recently punted the future of Canada's medical program in the balls.

Inspection and smoke detector test took all of 10 seconds.

Gotta love it when the manager doesn't own the apartments and thus does not give a shit about them.

As for my grow... I think next time I'm going to try adding bud blood to my lineup. It probably would have helped reduce stretch and pack on some more weight. My buds aren't as developed as I think they could be at this point.

Live and learn!

:nyan:

I got some bud blood for next time. Tiny ass bag for $25, but it'll do four cycles in the tubs I've got, so I'm satisfied.

Anyway, when I got home I smoked through my entire stash and didn't want to go out and buy a bag, so I harvested them early.

Haha, yeah, just kidding. Was poking fun at Pernicious still for harvesting his a couple weeks early.

Anyway... some fucking fantastic news now.:eek:

If anyone remembers, a few days ago I had a post (that got deleted) asking for an online pharmacy that could hook me up with some birth control. :derfase:

Anyway... long story short, went into a clinic today and got six months of birth control, no questions asked, a refill on my Adderall script, AND the doctor is going to make sure that he gets me legalized ASAP!  :flowerchild:

:gethigh: :cop:  :flyhigh:

I just asked for a referral to a specialist, he asked why, I said alternative treatment - specifically marijuana :froman: , and he says "Why can't I sign it for you?" :lol: Anyway, so he's going to fast track me to a specialist (~3 months) to re-diagnose me (w/ ADHD) and then this walk-in clinic doctor is going to sign my papers! Said he already did it twice this way.

Anyway, I'm fucking stoked to say the least. :dancingbacon:  :discorex:  :prance: :happyweed:

When I do a res change, I add enough nutes to take it up to around 1200ppm, and then after that I just add RO water. By the end of the week it's at about 800.

The reason I'm doing this is threefold:

a) Over 1200 and these widows start burning tips.
b) it saves nutes / I'm lazy and experimenting
c) I'm going more concerned with quality than quantity this round.

On sunday I will go to the next week's nutes, which will be week 6 and will include Overdrive (which I haven't used yet). 8th week will be just a Final Phase rinse and then RO water.

Just got a knock on the door a few minutes ago. I very rarely get people knocking on my door.

I go look through the peephole, and sure enough, it's a :cop:.

Anyway, quickly hid my hash and bubbler before answering the door, and was relieved to find out that he wasn't looking for me, nor did he know my name.

Got me worried for a minute though.




I haven't decided whether or not I'm going to do another run in Oct/Nov yet after this. These girls are due to come down in 19 days.

I need to get me a house.

Yeah, they're really looking nice and some of the top buds are already starting to look like an eighth.


I definitely feel that these beans were legit white widow. They burn over 1200PPM and they look exactly how they should. Beans from BCSeedKing.

18 days!
