Week 20 (Flower Week 8):
I'll be chopping sometime this week. The plants are pretty mature, and I managed to get one to purple pretty heavily just by dropping the temp in the house.

Bud harvest off of the purple plant. I've pulled everything but the small popcorn on the bottom branches. I converted the larger popcorn to rough-cut trim in order to boost my future bubble-hash run. :dancingshroom:

I'll pull the other plants in the next few days, transferring the bud into 1/2 gallon jars with boveda packs for curing as they reach the correct moisture content. Will update with pics, final bud weight, and bubble hash final product weights as they become available.

Cheers :pipesmoke:

Final bud harvest. I must admit that i converted most of the smaller or fluffy buds to chopped up trim for bubble hash.

The last picture is the foliage and popcorn buds that I still have to sift through.

I've been sampling the resin off of the clippers blades...and it's nice :pipesmoke:

If you used cheap wire hangers you cohld get the clips over the wire and clip stems. Instead of wrapping "good" hangers with wire. Just a thought

Well, now that I've had a chance to get everything processed and dried, and gotten over my disappointment with the yield, I think its about time to wrap this grow log up.

So, out of a 4x4 foot tent, with a 600W HID, using a strain that was rated at up to 1200g/ft2, I harvested about 9 oz. of bud, and got about 13 grams of bubble hash from the trim. Half of the bubble hash (anything above 73 microns and below 45 microns) was stripped of solids via a cold ISO wash, an hour in the sun to break down the chlorophyll, and reduced to a nice oil that shatters into a billion pieces after sitting in the fridge for a bit.

Looking back on everything, I believe there are multiple avenues to this disappointing harvest.

  • Not having an open area around the tent. Having the access to all corners of the tent would have allowed me to perform some of the necessary maintenance that needs to happen (all of which will be outlined soon).
  • Having to rely on spray rings that were not wetting the entire soil volume, because i couldn't reach the soil with a sprayer.
  • Not trimming back smaller branches, and not thinning out the canopy once I switched to 12/12. Less competing flowering branches and more light penetration would have probably increased the amount of harvestable bud.
  • Initiating flowering too late. I allowed the SCROG canopy to completely fill the tent, and didn't allow room for training down the stretch growth. This also leads to:
  • Uneven light distribution across the canopy, and possibly inadequate light in general. I never had issues with temperature, so I should have probably pushed up to a 1000W HID.
  • Inadequate flowering time. I believe the rating online was 7-9 week flowering time, and I harvested around 8 weeks. Unfortunately, because of the situation with grad school and moving, I was really pushing the envelope at 8 weeks, so this aspect was actually out of my control for this grow. :shrug: I think the plants could have stood another week or two.
  • Given the shitty initial harvest, it would have probably been a good idea to trim the plants after harvest and re-vegging and flowering a 2nd time. Again, because of time constraints, I just was not able to do that.


So, that's it :happyweed: Because of the move, I'll probably not be able to do another grow for the next couple of years. Hopefully by then I'll be able to set up my growspace the right way, and get a pretty good yield next time.

:peace::heart::pipesmoke:
