Second Tent Grow... July 2020

Four Candy Cream Autos from seed... 3x3x6 tent with 400w LED...4โ€ fan...1.5 gallon pots...Light cycle to be 22:2.... calendar is about 11 weeks... germination on July 1, broke soil on July 2! ๐Ÿ˜ณ Will be first attempt at Scrog... will keep you updated on that build too!๐Ÿคž First grow was successful and educational... letโ€™s see if that all pays off! ๐ŸŒฟ๐ŸŒฟ๐ŸŒฟ๐ŸŒฟ๐Ÿ‘

4 Candy Cream AutoFlower... from seed

Day 97 (Week 14)

47 updates

317 photos

Day: 97

Three weeks of curing is. Finally. Fucking. OVER!!!! Candy Cream is ... YES!! Great smoke. Super tasty and crazy smooth hit. Straight to your dome, face, and eyes... then a nice body chillโ€”not couchlock. Nugs are crumbly but still sticky... only lost maybe 5% of nug mass in jars due to settling. ๐Ÿ‘ Iโ€™ll grow this again. Definitely growing this again. ๐ŸŒฟ๐ŸŒฟ๐Ÿ’จ. ๐ŸŒฟ๐ŸŒฟ๐Ÿ’จ

lawson999 is there any bud in there it looks so fluffy. Buds should lose 50% moist and you first dry before cure. Guess if there isnt much weight there isnt much too lose

Clip and Cure!! Loooove this day!! Had three plants...all about 16-18โ€ tall... multiple colas from LST... hung in attic as trimmed plants...moisture retention from stems and leaves helped maintain the humidity...๐Ÿ‘... produced between 0.75 oz. and 0.85 oz. per plant!! Very happy!! ๐ŸŒฟ๐ŸŒฟ๐ŸŒฟ No real crystal loss in trimming/transport... Uber careful. ๐Ÿ‘ Any dry, crumbling foliage left was trimmed and saved... finished buds straight into curing jars. They shouldnโ€™t compress much at allโ€” drying was pretty spot-on. Saved a trophy bud of course. ๐Ÿคทโ€โ™‚๏ธ๐ŸŒฟ๐Ÿ’š Really enjoyed this grow. Learning every day. Hope this helped/helps someone... or was just a good show. Will give you a smoke update after a few weeks of curing! ๐ŸŒฟ๐ŸŒฟ๐Ÿ’จ

Itโ€™s HARVEST TIME!! Three of the four made it fantastically!!! These are the before and after defoliation pics.... ( x 3 sets)... And just a scale pic for giggles. Theyโ€™re gonna hang at least a week... we grew them pretty dry. One of them has some twisted, yellow, crippled looking leavesโ€” but trichomes say itโ€™s all good!! Super excited for this batch!!

About to go dark. 48 hrs should finish the grow and then on to harvest. Leaves are becoming purple and orange... trichome check shows cloudy middle and bottom buds, amber top buds. ๐Ÿ˜‹ Bud density is encouraging and the overall size is impressive for 18โ€ plants!!

Growing to Dry.... these ladies are about ready... few more days of dry growth to remove water from soil and plant...trichome check shows top colas are ready, bottom buds are NOT. Buds are dense but fluffy, not too sticky, and have a deep, fruity stink. Almost there!! ๐ŸŒฟ๐ŸŒฟ๐ŸŒฟ๐ŸŒฟ๐Ÿ‘

nobuddyatall I use a Carson hand-held LED 60-120x pocket scope. Super affordable on Amazon and crazy easy to use!

Good heavy water last night... defoliation helped... I think weโ€™re close on the 3 Ladies!! I pulled all the branches of the straggler toward the center and anchored them with wire clips.... having ALL the bud sites together seemed to help it with flowering. Sheโ€™ll still be in bloom looonnng after the other three are harvested. But sheโ€™s got a lot of potential!! ๐ŸŒฟ๐ŸŒฟ๐ŸŒฟ๐ŸŒฟ๐Ÿ’š

First full 22 hrs of Bloom. Light is maxed on pulley...about 14โ€ up.

Scrog installation. LST made foliage dense, nodes erupted everywhere, kept plants short n squat, and worked just right. ๐Ÿ˜‹ Scrog hanging from light, light at 16โ€, still on 22:2. Water last night. Hoping the weight of the screen will be enuff. Itโ€™s tight and not stretchy at all. I can raise the screen as needed at the anchors.โ€” actually raised it AFTER photos so plants could grow into ITโ€” instead of forcing growth from the start. ๐Ÿคทโ€โ™‚๏ธ ***last 7 photos are pre-screen... to show what I was working with.*** ๐Ÿคž๐ŸŒฟ๐ŸŒฟ๐ŸŒฟ๐ŸŒฟ

Iโ€™m probably gonna hang it directly from the light โ€”itโ€™s probly heavy enuff to do the job via gravity...and the mesh is tightโ€”there isnโ€™t much stretch. Also will keep the plants a consistent distance from the light. ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿคทโ€โ™‚๏ธ Anyway... let me know whatcha think! ๐ŸŒฟ๐ŸŒฟ๐ŸŒฟ๐ŸŒฟ๐Ÿ’จ
