Bagseed - “Hendricks Guitar”

First Grow

From an unknown strain of backyard weed gifted by a friend of mine. Named “Horny Goat” by my boyfriend, we gave her the nickname Hendricks Guitar.

Word to the wise— never eyeball ph! Looking much happier. Her stems are reddish purple and her leaves’ margins have some discoloration. Not seeing anymore of those weird spots so that’s good. Thinking about taking a clone from her soon!

Watered at ph 6.7, moved to basement with temperatures in 60’s F and 50% RH

Watered yesterday because she was looking droopy but that obviously wasn’t the problem. She’s starting to get to be too big for this tent

1 foot, 8 inches. Sprayed with more Organocide

Day: 75

Watered ph 6.67 and finally introduced some LST. Droopy from lack of watering, oops!

Day: 68

Watered again ph 6.78. Must not have given her enough or she’s becoming a heavier drinker! 1/8 cup of fertilizer

Watered at ph 6.87 yesterday

Trimmed off most of the broken branch because the weight of it kept pulling the wound open 😢

Day: 64

She snapped during some minor LST 🙃 Got a bandaid around her (literally) to help the stem repair itself

Yesterday was the first day I watered in a week to kill off more gnats/give the roots a break after the neem soak. Also added a fan for good air flow and cooler temperatures.

Yesterday I removed a few inches of topsoil with larva and eggs in it, put it in a plastic bag and threw it away. I soaked the remaining soil with diluted neem oil, and then recovered with new clean topsoil. Dramatically reduced the gnats, though I’ve since seen one or two.

Topped today!

6 and 7/8 inches. Switched to 400W at 25 inches away from canopy

Day: 44

Watered yesterday at 6.68 ph, ph-ed down with lemon juice. Had to bury her stem again, the lowest part was looking really thin. 5 and 1/2 inches

Day: 40

Is the curling light stress? I feel like it’s become less pronounced over the days, so that’s good

3 years ago

Day: 37

It looks like the cayenne solution might have been too strong. That, coupled with my now new 300W grow light (thank you baby!) burned her leaves. We had to switch back to 45W just to be easy on em. Will be waiting another day before spraying with diluted cayenne solution. Watered at 5.7 ph in order to kill fungus gnat larva (shit ton of flies escaped as I watered, thank goodness I was outside) also sprinkled Espoma Rose Food (4-3-2) and some more potting soil over top because she stinky

Day: 35

AJAX soap and water sprayed, will leave on for an hour and then spray and wipe off

3 years ago

Day: 33

Yesterday I sprayed 1 tbsp cayenne pepper + 3 cloves of garlic + pot of boiling water left to seep for several hours on all leaves, leaving it on for 1 hr before spraying it off with clean water and then gently wiping with napkins. I’ve also set out a fly trap for the gnats with a sprinkle of sugar + 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar + 1 tbsp warm water + a small squirt of dish soap. Might want to wait until the day after tomorrow to apply a dish soap + water solution to suffocate the spider mites. Also trying to keep it dryer and colder

Day: 32

If it’s not one thing, it’s something else 🤦🏻‍♀️ Turns out I’ve got fungus gnats and spider mites. Sheesh

Day: 31

Her new leaves have really popped! She’s also still wet about an inch down, so no watering today. I have a feeling she’s going to be my bushy one. 3 and 7/8 inches

Day: 30

My 45W LED light finally came in, it’s now 36” away from the tops of the plants. I’m excited to see if this really helps! Yay consistent lighting

Such big leaves! Will definitely water tomorrow

Droop of the cotyledon seems to have happened overnight, which was very humid and cold. Otherwise good, perky leaves!

3 years ago

Day: 24

Leaves have perked up! She seems to be taking well to her pot, though her cotelydon leaves have yellowed, which I believe is due to transplant shock. She’s the only one I want outside rn since she’s the strongest and didn’t have her stem buried during transplant.

Day: 22

Finally transplanted! She had good looking roots too, white and spread out, I’m sure she’ll do good now.

Alright so I added compost&soil to the top, since she had the most room in her “pot”. Also added bone meal prior to the dirt so it’d get to the roots better. Now measures 2 and 3/8 inches. Tap water at ph 7.2, run off ph 7.17 . I’m going to want to bring down the ph in the next watering

3 years ago

Day: 18

3 and 1/2 inches. Ph meter and the thermometer are coming tomorrow very exciting!!

3 years ago

Day: 16

Once she dries a bit, I’ll give her bone meal. Not a fan of her purple stem, means she’s stressed, which isn’t shocking but still sucks

Day: 15

Lookin sharp! Fucked up her light though today, since I have to manually put them into dark or light and I slept in a whole 2 hours more, and thus more dark 😬 Also thinking I should just supplement her with a light alongside sunshine

3 years ago

Grogirlgro I would def get a light to supplement an led is great but a bulb would work for a seedling. They’re all stretching very badly that’s why they’re so long and skinny not enough strong light. I’m a newbie too but I’ve researched until my eyes bled and I have a friend who’s been growing a while who’s my mentor lol feel free to ask me any questions. Good luck!

witchcat Yeah I know they’re incredibly leggy, kinda hard without a grow tent or proper light. Once the government lets us work again, I’m definitely getting a better light. Thanks for the suggestion, fellow newb 😁

Grogirlgro Are u able to get a bulb? Are u just using sunlight right now? I have seen people get through seedling stage with just a cfl bulb I think they’re under $10. I would also recommend burying the stem some with more dirt so they’re not using all of the energy on that and will work on more leaf production.

Watered today with regular ole tap water (ph?) until there was some run off. Next time I water, I’ll give her some bone meal, and maybe add a bit of soil&compost since I think the soil’s a little shallower than I want

3 years ago

Thatguy401 I think your plants need to be transplanted the are Stretching to the light and possibly because they are becoming root bound in the small containers with such shallow soil just some input just looking out 🤙🏼

witchcat Yep, she’ll have a new home soon! Just need my supplies to come in. I was thinking about burying about an inch of stem once I do

Day: 13

No watering today, since she’s still wet about a fingertip in. Kiiinda worried about the soil not draining properly, but I don’t see any issues yet so we’re crossing our fingers until I transplant her into a larger pot with better soil. Her leaves seem bigger every day though 😊

My beauty ❤️ Lots of sunlight today! It was very windy and cool yesterday, she had fun outside while we sunbathed and shmoked. She appears to have some white mist over the soil, which I believe is saprophytic fungi. She’s got compost so as long as it stays in check I’m not too worried about it

(ignore the pipe cleaner, whoops ew!) I love this girl, she’s sturdy and moving along nicely. I wish it wasn’t so overcast, she absolutely thrives when it’s lovely and windy out. Going to need to use the lamp most of today but apparently it should clear by dinner time!

Day: 10

3 and 3/8 inches. Kept temperatures and light pretty low, and used primarily sunlight from the start. Put her outside when the temperatures were high enough and exposed her to more wind, which I think has made her healthier (than her leggy sisters!) with larger leaves.

witchcat Hendricks has been getting distilled bottled water (ph?), and yesterday got some “liquid fertilizer”, ie homemade egg shell and dandelion mix. She’s got compost and garden soil, and will be getting bone meal amendments a week from now. Light is from 6-7 am and 10 pm, supplemented by a Verilux daylight lamp at sundown and during overcast days
