One week into cure, I must say that there is NOTHING like smokin your own home grown. It’s good smoke too! Now to remember to burp 21 jars every day….

I’m over the moon excited about how I did on my very first grow. Finally got a good microscope, and I’m proud of myself for chopping this girl when I did. Dried, and now curing in jars. Smell is sooooo dank and I can’t wait to stuff a cone and smoke my own weed. BEST OF ALL I DIDNT PAY A DISPENSARY FOR IT!

BLG got the chop. She’s gunna hang upside down in my man cave for a week. Temp at 20C and rh at 60%. Would anyone care to chime in with any suggestions on a better way? I’ve got a cheap little drying tent coming, but this is the best I could come up with for now.

IG @stick_e_fingerz What’s good bro north sider here

zenmaster

zenmaster I recommend a grow tent for drying, with a small air purifier inside pointing down to help clean the air and keep air flow moving, and what I did was put polyfill or bug mesh in the extraction points to allow fresh air exchange (FAE) without allowing dusts or insects to get inside, also keeps it 100% dark which is important when drying as it’s light sensitive, longer low temp drys are the best so roughly 14 days at 18-22C for best terpene flavours, hope this helps fellow grower

Watering day. Fed big girls some blackstrap molasses and 2 little ladies tiger bloom and cal mag. Plan on just straight water (a flush) next feed as to address any salt build up. Big girl has been flowering for 6 weeks today, so gunna start harvesting in 2-3 weeks, likely as soon as I start seeing trichomes start turning amber. Also gunna stem split the big larfy girl a week into final straight water flushing just to see what happens.

🤞🏼seem to be doing ok and recovering a bit after ph issue. My soul is neutral?? I put 7 ph water in and 7 ph water comes out. I don’t even know how that’s possible. But I’m a noob. So I’ve been giving 6.8 water some days and 6.5 and 6.3 others. Slowly lowering nutes each watering until harvest then I’ll flush straight 6.6 water for 3 watering then they get the chop. I’m thinking week after Halloween.

Adjusting my feed ph up to 6.7. Had some nute issues because of improper ph. I think my soil is whacked, looking for something else to use, any suggestions? Thank you for the help combat and ea. still learning so much from this community and here’s to the finish! Hoping I make it there!

Hammerhead420 I personally love MotherEarth Coco/perlite 70/30 I e been using it for about 3 years. Go to cocoforcannabis.com to check out the info they give. There feed schedules are on point, I’ve done 5 different variants on the same schedule with no major issues at all.

HELP. I missed watering yesterday so they were definitely dryer than normal but seeing these all over two girl. What is this?

Caliban

Caliban start with ph. What are you watering at and what is run off? Need more information. What about cal Mg supplements? What is your feed regimen ?

Caliban

Caliban Burned tips mean nute lock so that could be root cause. No pun intended.

CannaMed79!

CannaMed79! My ph in and out is right at 6. I used ffof and didn’t start feeding until week 5. Used ff liquid nutes for veg, half strength every other watering. Since bloom I’ve been using tiger bloom half strength every feeding with ff cal mag half strength every other feed. I water until 20% runoff and pots are dry and light every other day. I water right after lights on in the morning.

Humidity was getting up around 75% so I went ahead and got a small compressor type dehumidifier. I took the heater out because the dehum will create heat too. Ladies are looking good so far I think. Here’s to the buds filling out and fattening up. 🍻

CannaMed79!

CannaMed79! Yeah I’m really not sure what happened to her, she was my biggest healthiest throughout the whole thing and then did that. Idk. This is a learning experience for sure.

ig:@eaegifts

ig:@eaegifts Different phenotype expressions are very common useless it’s a ibl (inbreed line). If she’s not being hit with heat or hard winds then it’s just who she is a very Sativa leaning pheno, I’d get a fan going on the canopy if you don’t already have one because good airflow =thick buds

Crazy how they’ve all done kinda their own thing since being all planted at the same time. I still attribute that to me figuring out proper watering amount and schedule. I can’t wait to harvest these girls and start another round with the knowledge I gained from all of you in my first grow!

Day 21 of flower for this girl. Buds seems lite and airy, larfy? lol. Think they’ll fill out? The girl next to her has much bigger thicker fuller colas and didn’t start flowering until at least 5 days later. Genetics?

What do you do with the little buds down under everything else? Just pluck em so everything up top gets bigger? Or just leave alone and have lots of little popcorn buds to harvest? Will they be as potent as the big ones up top?

2 months ago

waynezweedz If you want the most bud you can have then leave them there as long as they are sick and are getting a little bit of light. If you want the absolute best and most potent then you want to lollipop so only what’s above the trellis is receiving the hormones and energy for growth. At the end of the day it’s a personal choice and as a first time grower it’s hard to find that middle ground of too many leaves and stripped bare when defoliating.

waynezweedz Looks healthy and happy tho👍🏼

Seeing all sorts of issues with fan leaves but buds just don’t seem to care. They are growing like crazy and I think I see trichs. Buds aren’t as fat as I had envisioned but that’s likely my fault. Anybody wanna make suggestions or help a newbie out?

Doobie123

Doobie123 My best advice is NEVER GIVE UP. You’re on the right track and it’s a constant learning curve. You might even get lucky on your first grow, but as time goes on it’s about consistency and knowing the science 🧬

shiz

shiz Curling of the leafs looks like over watered

CannaMed79!

CannaMed79! I don’t think I’m overwatering, not at this point anyway. I give them a half gallon every other day, and they are bone dry six inches down in the dirt the second day.

Moving along, fed cal mag and big bloom today. Think I’m seeing some deficiencies but I think I’m getting the nute feed dialed in. Ph in and out are in the low 6 range so I don’t think it’s lockout. I bought some dolomite lime and will be diluting a tablespoon in a gallon of water for next watering. I’m watering a half gallon per plant every other day right after lights on.

More flowers, looking good so far I think? Seeing some light burn, I moved the lights up 6 inches. Might have some nute burn, still trying to dial in correct mixture for feeding. Also seeing some fan leaves tips start to curl to point down. Anyone know why that might be?

combatmedic81 Rust spots might be magnesium deficiency, try Epsom salt

CannaMed79!

CannaMed79! I’ve been contemplating epsom salt, just scared to do anything to drastic as overall seems to be doing ok. I am a complete novice.

combatmedic81

combatmedic81 I’ve personally used epsom salt and it makes them a darker green. Plant companies actually sell it, like penington. I bought some at home depot

Lots of activity in 10 days, one girl started flowering. Gunna have to figure out a trellis of some kind, as she has a bunch of buds everywhere. Is that normal??? I did a little LST but very little. Also maybe a little light burn on one of the top leaves.
