Flowering cycle

Decided to combine my 2 grows into 1 since during flowering it no longer matters how old the plant is from seed. Right hand side of the 5x5x6 tent powered by xxl 6” cool tube hood (5x5 veg coverage, 4.5x4.5 flowering coverage) with a 600w GROWLUSH Australia super high output HPS globe fed from Growlush dimmable digital ballast. Left side of tent powered by 2x 600w (590w total for the 2) Vipar Spectra led lights. (1x V600, 1x PAR 600)

Closing this grow with my final grow results. All in all it’s my best grow so far, haven’t done the math but think I’m just shy of an elbow. Not too shabby for most plants only having shy of 40 days veg growth from seed. I highly recommend ILGM seed bank and any of their strains. Thanks for your support and advices along the journey, it’s been a pleasure.

Harvest day stage 2. All cut down, minimum 20% amber trichomes on remaining plants. Harvest 1 is my day smoke, this will be my night time smoko. Harvest 1 is dry and been curing for around a week, ended up with 3.75oz of Gold Leaf, 1.75oz of Cali Dream.

Main pic: Church Added my 5” intake fan to help with air flow and help lower my humidity a tad. Refilled the Church reservoir with another 10 litres of flush ph to 6.2. All soil grown plants were still moist from last flush. Stay tuned for harvest very soon!

Found the water pump not working in the Church reservoir but unsure how long it was broken. I had a spare so replaced it though. Also tied the Church colas down a little more to improve my airflow around the colas. The Gold Leaf is looking absolutely beautiful with her purple/black leaves, they really contrast from the frosty flowers. Cali Dream is really dying up top where it snapped weeks ago, close to being ready.

Flushed all plants with Grotek flush. Filled Church reservoir with 15 litres of flush solution. Chopped a sample of Gold Leaf that was almost 100% cloudy.

Day: 57

Last feeding before the flush. All soils still moist from last time I saw them (5 days) but I still gave them a light watering of 4 litres each 50ml/20ml/10litres OziTonic/SweetAz/water ph:6.2 Side note to my growmies: life is going ok right now, still majorly stressful not having my grow on site but it is what it is. Heads up and working my ass off.

Church once again in lockout due to not ph’ing my last feeding of 15 litres (guessing ph I fed at around 7) 10 litres in the reservoir still so I’ve mixed into the res 30 ml of Grotek flush. This should negate the excess ph issue until I can check again possibly Friday. Sucks not having this at my pad fuck legality! The other plants received a feed of 8 litres each of Sweetaz, Ozi Tonic 20ml/50ml/10litres of water ph: 6.2

F39. Chronic Widow reservoir topped up with 10litres of Sweetaz and Ozi Tonic 20/50ml ph 6.0. Church will receive the same thing tomorrow I just didn’t have enough nutrient mixed up tonight. All other plants still good a few more days.

Day: 37

F37. Fed all potted plants a mixture of Sweetaz 20ml/10 litres and Ozi Tonic 50ml/10 litres ph 6.0 All plants received around 7 litres each. On a side note, I’m not sure if I’ve said something to offend anyone, people are busy or people just aren’t interested in my grow anymore... but I’m keeping this grow log for my own records regardless. Bring on these last few weeks!

F36. Week 6, day 1 of flowering period. Humidity has been a little high this week (up to 60%) so I need to get myself a dehumidifier or come up with another solution. Added another fan (blowing under the canopy) to keep air movement flowing and see if that combats my issue somewhat.

Day: 35

F35. Last day of week 5. It’s funny that the Chronic Widow plant (back left) used to be the runt of my plants and I was actually that embarrassed to post it I stopped updating it in my grow log. Turns out it was just a slow starter as it soon towered above the others.

4 years ago

Day: 34

F34 Both reservoirs topped up with 10 litres each Monsta Bud and Sweetaz, all other plants received 6 litres each. This is possibly their last ‘flowering bloom’ feeding depending how quickly they can drink... then they get Tonic until harvest.

F33. Everyday they look more beautiful. The Church has drank around 9 litres since I topped the tank 2 days ago, nutrient lockout dealt with. Flowers really stacking weight this week.

F32. I believe the Church is drinking again, we’ll see over the next few days. I opened up the canopy a little bit for better light penetration along the colas. All other plants seem happy and healthy enough right now.

F31. Lights about to go out on day 31 of flower. I cleaned out the Church reservoir and refilled it with Grotek final flush which ran through the system for an hour. I believe the Church was in nutrient lockout as it’s reservoir hasn’t been getting any lower the last few days since refilling and the Chronic Widow reservoir was almost empty. Anyways it’s all clean and refilled with the plants last feeding of Monsta Bud. The soil plants will get 1 more feeding with Monsta Bud then all plants will be on Sweetaz and Ozi Tonic the remainder of flowering until harvest day.

F29. Today they received their first flush except for the Church and Chronic Widow which I’ll do Thursday after work as it’s a big job cleaning out those reservoirs. After flushing I’ll leave to dry 4-5 days again before resuming their feeding schedule.

Fed today after drying soils for 5 days. They received 7 litres each Monsta Bud/ Sweetaz ph 5.8 and I got around 1 litre of runoff from each plant. Added a few macro shots of early trichome production.

Day: 24

F24 Soil is getting really dry in all pots, I’ll leave it 1 more day before next feed. I’ve lost my hygrometer in the tent somewhere, it’s just vanished like a plant has eaten it or something!? Chronic Widow up to 3’3” Opened up a few colas on the Church for better light penetration. Removed the plant stands from the tent today to create a more even canopy under the HPS side of the tent. Pretty fun grow so far. Pic 2. Chronic Widow Pic 3. Cali Dream Pic 4. Church Pic 5. 2x Gold Leaf

Day 1 of week 4 flowering. Chronic Widow now 3’2” I wish it would stop stretching. All plants are really getting into flower production now. Today I will purchase some small dehumidifying tubs to place in the tent, I want to replicate a desert environment this last half of flowering, I’m also using my Metal Halide globe during the last week and a half of flowering to boost resin production.

Last 30 minutes of light for day 21 of flower. Chronic Widow is now up to 3’, Cali Dream steady at 2’8”, Gold Leaf plants both around 2’4” , 1’10” for the Church.

Day 20 flowering phase. Added the Vipar PAR 600 back again over the 2 Untouched/untrained plants just because the Church kind of hogs the HPS. Fed all potted plants 1 gallon each Monsta Bud and Sweetaz ph’d to 5.8 and got a little runoff. Topped up the Church and Chronic Widow reservoirs as they were near on empty. Chronic Widow up to 2’10”. The tent doesn’t smell so much like Chinese takeout 🥡 anymore.

Day 19 of flowering phase 12/12 Another shuffle of the tent to make more light available to the other plants, the Church was being a light hog. Cali Dream sits at 2’7”, Chronic Widow 2’8” Just got a few stools for the Gold Leaf plants to sit on and raise their height. HPS light now sits at highest adjustment, will have to modify the hangers next if need be.

Grow-N-Baker You’re plants look awesome man! I can’t wait to have buds in my garden again!!

ClandestineWestOz Thanks champ 👍 I hear you on that. I wish my buds actually looked like buds already.

genghis_quan I see all of those young pistols starting to go wild on the tops though 😍. Can’t wait to see these plants. You have me convinced to try the gold lead and the church. I have loved every widow variation I’ve ever smoked. Sleep tight mate!!

Day: 17

Day 17. Chronic Widow and California Dream both sit at 2’6” high. Church canopy 1’8” to top of colas.2 remaining Gold Leaf plants are exactly 2’. Plants are in cruise mode... leaving the reservoirs and pots to dry out now before next feed. Ran into a mate I hadn’t seen in awhile, last last year I gave him 2 seeds that popped up in my Money Maker grow 3 seasons back and he gave me 28g from his grow. A reward I didn’t expect. One of those seeds I gave him turned hermaphrodite and the other plant he got a Lb from. Not too shabby.

Leadwater Hell yeah that’s a nice bonus there

Grow-N-Baker That’s what I’m talking about. A friend with weed is a friend indeed!! ✌🏼 I have buddy who grows we swap all the time is always good to have good friends like that!! Plants look amazing brother!!

genghis_quan What a true friend. That’s what this is about.. dude I got some great news. Followed your advice and I ended up getting a 50x50x100 cm tent. I’m going to get a hlg60 soon too and I may just flower the red Russian in it this grow. Then next grow and from then on use it as a veg tent. That way I can keep myself busy and harvest every 2-2.5 months 😋. It was damn near impossible finding anything under a 2x2 to shit to America btw. Not many tents or propagation tents under 50 cm let alone 50x50. Really excited mate!! Thanks for tagging along in my journey!! Btw I paid 25 dollars for shipping on a 45 dollar grow tent lmfao. But in this case that’s what I need specifically so fuck it

Day 16 flowering cycle. Hand watered all plants with Monsta Bud and Sweetaz. Filled both reservoirs with the same nutrient. It sucks losing a plant to gonad syndrome but having extra room in the tent is great for better light penetration to the lower nodes.

Day1 week 3 of flower. Few issues since moving the Church to centre stage, the Gold Leaf plants were kind of growing in the shadows and relying mostly on reflection off the sides of the tent. Note to self: larger light footprint from the grow light hood is no replacement for pure PAR smothering a plant in its radiance. Accordingly I moved the Vipar Spectra PAR 600 into the tent hovering over 2 Gold Leaf on the right side so the Church can share the HPS with the other Gold Leaf, Chronic Widow and Cali Dream. I also need to get something to lift my other plants about a foot off the ground (Mainly the Gold Leaf because it’s laterals are lanky), I’ll call into a hardware store when I get my car back tomorrow and get something for that job ( momentarily I have a few sitting on stacks of books lol )

Week 2 done. All plants have flowers forming and I believe the majority have finished their stretch. If any will continue to grow it will be the Chronic Widow (currently 2ft exactly) and California Dream (2’4”) I’ll monitor that. But for my own records Church canopy sits at 1’7” above the pot which equates to 3’ off the ground. Light is currently in prime position for the church and I only have 4” of light adjustment before having to modify my hangers.

4 years ago

ClandestineWestOz Chronic Widow finished day 14 at 2’1.5”, almost 2 inches growth in 12 hours so it obviously hasn’t finished stretching yet. In 1 hour I will measure the plant again after it’s 12 hour dark period.

Another shuffle in the tent today. I decided since the Church was my biggest plant it deserves centre stage so my 2 hydro grows are the centre row now. Added my Vipar Spectra PAR600 on the side just running red spectrum for assisted bud development and blues for resin production. 2 Sativa styled plants at the back now. Watered again 50ml/10ltr both Monsta Bud and Bud Swell, 20ml/10ltr Sweetaz. Church reservoir received 15 litres, Chronic Widow received 5 litres, all other plants received 3 litres each with little runoff. Now leave to dry until they are screaming for more!

ClandestineWestOz Dam just realised my carpet looks like dirt Hahaha

Leadwater Them ladies are beauties. It looked like you got a trellis, do you use it for support or to get an even canopy?

All responding well to their new nutrient, leaves are nice and perky and soil is still moist. Did some light defoliation on the Church, stripped it back to what I believe is going to be the main colas. Think I removed 30 something cuttings for the compost bin.

Cindy Compost... ?! I’m looking at all those potential clones. 😆 Looking beautiful!

ClandestineWestOz They are starting to flower is that a problem? I’d gladly send them if I was able. I don’t think they would last the journey though unfortunately 😞

I needed better access to feed the soil grows so I did a tent shuffle on my day off. Both Hydro grown plants (Church and Chronic Widow) are back row with the oscillating fan, 3 Gold Leaf 🍁 right side and front left, California Dream front and centre. The Chronic Widow has really started to bloom in the 24 hours since last update.

Day: 10

Day 10 of flowering cycle. Watered all plants and refilled applicable reservoirs with 100ml/10Litres of Monsta Bud plus 20ml/10Litres of Sweetaz. All plants now have buds forming. The Church took awhile since on the grow sessions video they harvested at day 47! The mixed aromas in the tent is intoxicating already, I’m glad I got that new carbon filter.

4 years ago

Cindy Newbie here so gotta ask- foes carbon filter help the grow at all... or just negates the smell? I’m a homeowner in legal rec/medical state so not too worried if it smells wonderful in here 😁 but if it helps the plants I’ll put it on my future wish list.

ClandestineWestOz Yeah sweety it’s just to get rid of odour. I have a police officer next door and it’s illegal in Australia so I need mine. I don’t think he would appreciate the smell as much as you or I. I’ve subbed to your grow and will help out when I can. Bless you I hope your medicine does you well.

Leadwater I’m glad Michigan went legal, I was medical before it was tho. Is Australia like really against pot or is it just like a fine? Bro I couldn’t imagine living next to a cop, then again I live in flint I think we only got like 15. Oh and how long do the carbon filters last? I’m using 1 in one of my grows. I’m not worried about cops, I just don’t want to get robbed, my city almost always is towards the top of crime/poverty lists here in the states

Day: 9

Day 9 of flower. My new XL hood is awesome, weighs half what my last one did and is twice the size. Freed up my 2 Vipar Spectra led lights for starting my next grow in the closet and saving myself 590w of electricity draw in the meantime. I am able to pump up the ballast to full power with just one light now and not worry about excess heat. Friday I now have a day off so I plan to clean out my 2 system 40’s that the Church and Chronic Widow sit in and refill the reservoirs with Ozimagic range (Monsta bud and Sweetaz) which all plants will receive through flowering.

4 years ago

Leadwater I gotta ask which lights you prefer led or hps? I thought about getting 1 to compare results but I’m too broke now. I spent about 2500 on equipment and seeds. My girl was pissed cuz I guess I was only supposed to spend like 1500

Leadwater Like which produces more weight? Which produces a higher quality bud?

Lights just on for last day of week 1 of flower. Probably only weekly updates from now dependant on time out from work. All 3 Gold Leaf got their full nutrient feed now all plants I’ll leave to dry for 5-6 days then switching to Ozimagic nutrient range for the rest of flowering. My new hood for the MH/HPS and new nutrient range is scheduled for delivery tomorrow so it’ll arrive minutes before I leave for work. Take care growmies, of yourselves, your plants and your families.

genghis_quan Cheers brother use anytime you can to take a breath and relax :)

ClandestineWestOz I’ll still have time to relax mate, keep the updates coming I’ll always have time to check them out.
