First Grow - Afghan Kush * 4
    #849871 - 09/22/21 11:11 PM (10 months, 20 days ago)

Section 410 ILCS 705/10-5 - Personal use of cannabis; restrictions on cultivation; penalties

the Compassionate Use of Medical Cannabis Program Act may cultivate cannabis plants, with a
limit of 5 plants that are more than 5 inches tall, per household.
______________________________________________________________________________________________



That being said, I give to you, my first cannabis cultivation attempt.


AFGHAN KUSH

Ordered 8 Afghan Kush seeds from (DEFINITELY NOT A SPONSOR).

Order came with 4 free G13 seeds.(NEXT RIP, COUNT PLANT REMEMBER, DUH!)


Medium:

3 parts coco, hydrated with boiling water, rinsed, strained, and buffered for 12 hours twice in Cal-Mag.
2 parts perlite
1 part fine verm
1 part worm castings


Light:

2 Spider Farmer SF-2000 LED Quantum Boards.


Environment:

I am growing in a 6'x4' area in my basement that I have walled and doored off.

In the winter I use a whole house humidifier that I got from a thrift store for $5 and an oil heater that I got on craigslist for $15.

In the summer I have an in room upright 8000 BTU beast that also functions as a dehumidifier, which I collect the water from and water the plants with after filtering and PH balancing.

I am using Down To Earth dry amendments for nutrients, which the microbes in the worm castings will break down into a plant available form.

For veg I am using their 4-4-4 mix and for flower I will be using their alfalfa meal and seabird guano.

I plan on scrogging them, at some point. Hence the net in the background.

I am using a combination of different training techniques, including topping, low stress training, supercropping, and mainlining.

Well, enough with the bullshit....here we go!


DAY 6 FROM SEED:


DAY 10 FROM SEED: LOOKS LIKE WE GOT SOME MUTANT GENETICS

DAY 33: OH LOOK, ANOTHER RETARD.
                   

DAY 47: GAVE THE DIFFERENT PHENOTYPES NICKNAMES, TRAINING CONTINUES
                       

WELL LITTLE ONE, YOU LOST THE RACE, TRYING TO STAY LEGAL HERE.

YOU HAVE TO CLICK IT

DAY 56
           

DAY 61

Very weird honestly, being a first time grower and all.

The room smells like good fuckin weed, which is different than how the bud smells up close.

Which is also different that what my fingers smell like after squeezing them a bit.

It all smells fabulous but if I had to put a word on it, fruity i guess, which seems weird to me because it's kush, but when i used to smoke kush back in the day it smelled way different.

Maybe the cure will be the cure, lol.

It will lol its crazy how the smells change. The one I have that now smells like green line og, I swear to God, smelled like tomatoes from about a foot away but when I touched it it smelled complex and amazing lol


Edit: another thing I've learned is that the "iconic" smells are just really good phenotypes. Our weed grown from seed could have a million different combos of smells and tastes lol


Edit×2: is it legal to give away seeds you cultivated yourself in illinois?

Don't know, don't care.

It doesn't say that anywhere in the bill.

To be honest the bill reads like it was written by snobby stuck up spoiled idiots who have never smoked weed before, and didn't think it through all the way.

Well, the smell of dead grass/hay is pretty much gone, no kush smell yet but still burping and waiting. Not sure how to describe the smell, but it's not bad at all.

I have read that some people wait until it has been curing for 2 weeks before they dip into it, some say 30 days, some people say some cultivars don't properly cure until jarred for 6 months...just waiting, burping, and smelling.

I did take a bud and grind it up and smoke it with my guy yesterday for my birthday. It was smooth, and had an ok taste, but it's not there yet.

I'm sure it will be fine in a few weeks...we shall see. I really like this whole process.

Just started 2 G13, 2 more Afghan Kush, and my guy gave me a Purple kush seed, so we have the lineup for the next run already.

About a month give or take


Edit: I also judge how much chlorophyll they have left to break down by how fast it discolors my bong water. Imo mine might  have a week or 2 left to full flavor but all the grass smell has been gone for a min now and I just started getting the nice smells about a week ago :shrug:

Happy to report that I now have kush. Took a minute, but the magic(science) has happened and I have my kush smell and taste. I can tell it's just gonna get better as it sits in the jars curing.

So happy with the finished product. Rolled a joint the size of a huge blunt. Never done that before...never had a personal stash this big before.

I hope they legalize or at least decriminalize or reclassify psychedelics soon. I miss my PE.

I hate taxes too, I just want to grow my own. I was killin the game with mushrooms about 10 years ago, check me out on the shroomery. Royally fucked up and had to stop growing. Now waiting on the law to change.

Mushroom cultivation takes a lot less patience than this, but I feel it was a good warm up.
