Had the energy today so went ahead and harvested this girl. This has probably got the be the stickiest plant I’ve grown to date. Ended up with 356 grams of wet bud right now now and have her in my drying box. I’ll update in a few days as the drying process goes on and then update with final weight and smoke report.

The end of week 12 and haven’t decided if I’m going to chop her today or tomorrow. I’ll decide a little later today but just got some last updated pictures and will update again once I chop.

Day: 82

Nothing much to speak of today, she’s gonna get the chop this weekend, she’s got more and more ambers popping up so just gonna let her dry up now and most likely chop on Saturday.

Day: 81

She’s really starting to fade out now and getting more and more amber in her. I really wish the buds would fatten up a bit more but the ones that are there and there are plenty, are pretty damn dense so not complaining. I gave her one last watering with calimagic and Sugardaddy and might end up giving her one last plain watering before harvesting but either way she should be ready by the weekend.

Day: 80

Well this girl will probably get chopped this weekend. She’ll get one more drink of water with MagiCali and Sugardaddy tomorrow and she’ll dry out till chop. I wish I could get good trich pictures but just won’t work but she’s about 10% amber right now so at the rate she’s going, chop day will be sometime this weekend.

The start of week 12 and she’s coming towards the end of her life. Her leaves are all starting to fade and she’s almost completely milky but I want more amber so I’m thinking another 1-2 weeks and she’ll be ready. Until then she’ll get plain water and one more watering with Calimag and Sugardaddy to try and give her one last boost.

The end of week and 11 and the smell coming from this girl is amazing and strong. I don’t think she’s got too much longer to go so I’m starting the flush. Today I gave her 2 gallons of water with Magicali and Sugardaddy and will probably get straight water from here on out with maybe one more dose of the Magicali and Sugardaddy. She was pretty droopy todat from being low on water so hopefully she’ll perk up after the watering.

2 years ago

Day: 76

+6

Nothing to update today other than she’s gonna get some plain pH’d water tomorrow to start flushing out some of the nutes then she’ll get a feeding of magicali and sugardaddy. Supposedly supposed to increase the flavor and bulk up the last couple weeks.

2 years ago

Day: 75

+9

All looking good and she may not end up being having really fat buds because the trichs are turning milky pretty quick so I’m looking at probably two weeks left so next watering I’m going to be going by the technaflora feed chart and give her 40ml sugardaddy and 2.5ml Magicali the first week and plain pH’d water the final week and see how she does. If she still needs more time, I’ll continue the 2 week regiment until she’s finished up. My goal is to get her to 40-50% amber.

Day: 74

Nothing much new today, just took her out to remove any dead leaves and the bottom and get some updated pictures for the day.

2 years ago

Day: 73

+6

She was pretty dehydrated today so she got 2 gallons of plain pH’d water and she’s loving it. I believe next feeding she’ll be ready for nutes again. Some of the colas look like she’s finishing up and the rest have a ways to go but trichs are still clear so she’ll go until I get 40-50% amber, like I like.

Nothing new to update today, thought she was gonna be ready for some water today but not quite dry yet. Just removed a couple lower dying leaves and tucked everything else.

Day: 71

Starting week 11 and all is still going good. Temps here have finally started to cool a bit so I’m able to keep the temp in the tent at a range I like, 78-81. Just waiting for her to really start putting on some weight on most of her bud sites. Still looking at a month or so for harvest, at least.

Day: 70

The end of week 10 and she got a feeding of water and nutes today. She’s starting to fill in nicely but still a few weeks away from harvest.

Day: 67

Nothing new today other than she was very dry so she got her 2 gallons of plain pH’d water, next will be a feeding of nutes.

Day: 66

+7

She’ll be ready for another round of water, 2 gallons worth tomorrow, she’s almost dry. Other than that, not much had to be done with her today. As will all the girls in the tent, I’m trying to figure out how to get my temps down. The AC is out in the house and hoping with some cooler temps moving in, it’ll help cool it down.

2 years ago

Day: 65

+7

Did a bit of defoliating on the lower end of her today, mainly to remove some dying leaves. Since I’ve got 3 flowering plants in the tent right now, I don’t think everything is getting the right light coverage so I’ve got another AGLEX “1200W” COB LED that should be here tomorrow so hopefully I’ll have enough light coverage and penetration from here on out.

Day: 64

+7

The beginning of week 10 and started off with 2 gallons of plain pH’d water. I think I waited a day later than I should of cause she was pretty droopy and dried out but seems to of recovered. I ended up tying down a couple of the really long branches to keep her even and seems to of evened up the canopy a bit.

2 years ago

Day: 62

+5

Coming up to the end of another week and nothing much to complain about. Looks like she might be trying to foxtail a bit and I’m sure it’s due to the heat we had for a couple weeks but other than that, all is good. She’s ready for some more water either tomorrow or Sunday.

2 years ago

Day: 61

+6

All is good with her and she’s still stretching but starting to pack on some weight. Not much else really happening with her right now and not much maintenance on my part, just feed and water when she needs it and she’s taking care of herself.

2 years ago

Day: 60

Not much to update today other than she’s still stretching. Just took her out for some updated pictures and placed her back in the tent and tucked her leaves.

2 years ago

Day: 59

All is good today and she’s still doing some stretching, a little over an inch in the last 24 hours. Just removed a couple of dead leaves from the bottom tonight and the re-tucked everything back up.

Day: 58

Day: 57

Starting week 9 today and all is looking good still. Didn’t really have a whole that to do with her today other than getting some updated pictures and readjusted and tucked the leaves.

bwat419 Looks awesome !

Day: 55

+10

Gave her almost a gallon and a half of plain pH’d water today, she was pretty dry. Other than that, just did some more leaf tucking to keep her open. She’s really starting to smell amazing and she’s really evened out all around.

JakesGrow Need to defoliate

Day: 53

+4

She’s really starting to frost up quite a bit, not sure if it’s the new line of nutes, Technaflora, or just the strain. Another day or two and she’ll be ready for another gallon or so of plain water.

2 years ago

Day: 52

+7

All still looking well and the smell is slowly getting stronger and sweeter. Just took her out for updated pictures and tucked all the leaves again.

2 years ago

Day: 51

+7

Gave her about 1.25 gallons of plain pH’d (6.7) water today and she really needed it. Her sweet smell is starting to get a bit stronger too. Other than that, I just did a little adjusting and leaf tucking today.

2 years ago

Day: 50

+8

Nothing too much happening right now, she’s doing good and the only real issue I’m having is trying to bring the humidity down some more. I can get it down to about 40 for a bit but then jumps back up to about 62. One way or another I’ll get it fixed. Other than the just tucked some leaves and she’ll be getting some plain pH’d water tomorrow.

2 years ago

Day: 49

+9

The end of week 7 and she’s really taking off. I think I did my last round of LST today and just going to let her grow vertical from here on out. She seems to be opened up quite a bit now and I’ll just do some light defoliating and leaf tucking until the end.

2 years ago

Day: 47

+8

She’s getting bigger and buds are developing nicely and even starting to show a little frost. Tied out another branch today and seemed to open her up a bit more and did some leaf tucking as well cause she’s a pretty bushy plant. Gave her a little over a gallon of water and nutes today to satisfy her hunger.

2 years ago

Day: 46

+7

She’s still doing her stretching and starting to put out a little bit of a sweet smell. Had to tie down a couple new branches that poked through and she’ll be getting water and nutes tomorrow. She’s definitely pretty bushy but really don’t want to defoliate unless I have to so doing my best to keep everything tucked once she’s back in the tent.

2 years ago

NotEddie Looks great.

Day: 45

+7

Nothing much new happening with her right now, she’s finally starting to get some vertical growth going. I did tie down another branch just to get it into the light a bit more. Other than that, she’ll probably need some water in the next day or two and she’ll get a feeding of nutes this time.

2 years ago

Day: 43

+5

Starting week 7 and I’ll say this is the first week of flower so will swap her from veg nutes to bloom nutes next feeding. I gave her a gallon and a half of plain pH’d water today. I also did a lot of readjusting to the tie downs to open her up some more and so far so good.

2 years ago

Day: 40

+5

Tied another branch down today just to get it some more light and left the rest alone to keep some vertical growth going. She needs maybe 1 or 2 days then she’ll get some more water.

2 years ago

Day: 39

+4

Went and readjusted and tied one branch back down and opened the middle up a bit more. I did also remove two of the big fan leaves up top to open her up as well. She’s still good on water for another couple of days.

2 years ago

Day: 38

+3

Just some updated pictures as she’s finally starting to get a bit of vertical growth going on. Didn’t do much with her today but try and tuck some leaves.

2 years ago

Day: 37

+1

Nothing much new to update today. She’s doing good since watering her yesterday and just did a few small adjustments to the pipe cleaners.

2 years ago

Day: 36

+7

The start of another week and she’s coming along nicely. Did a little more LST adjustments today and gave her a gallon of pH’d water with 5ML of Cal-Mag. She’s throwing out more and more pistils but not gonna say she’s “officially” in flower but hopefully by next week we’ll start seeing a little bud development. I’m gonna hold off on anymore LST for awhile and try and some vertical growth going.

2 years ago

Day: 35

+7

The end of week 5 and held off one more day before giving her some water. She’s definitely starting to spit pistils out so will call tomorrow and the start of week 6, the first week of flowering.

2 years ago

Day: 34

+4

Did a little adjust with the tie downs and tied down the main branch again in a new direction and she seems pretty opened up now. Hopefully I can start getting some vertical growth going. She will probably need some more water tomorrow.

2 years ago

Day: 32

+8

Looking good after a gallon of water and full strength nutes yesterday, she’s perked right up. Readjusted a couple branches that were tied down down and tucked some leaves.

2 years ago

Day: 31

+6

She was finally completely dry all the way to the bottom of the pot and upped her water intake today and gave her a full gallon of water and nutes at full strength today. Just like any other watering, she immediately started drooping a bit but after about 30 minutes she perked right back up. Now I’ll just keep an eye on the nutrients, lower dose seemed to not faze her at all so went to a full dose to try and get her to really start sizing up, we shall see what happens.

2 years ago

Day: 30

+6

She should be ready for a bit of water tomorrow, she’s almost completely dried out. Went and did some more LST with her, doesn’t seem to faze her at all. She’s definitely starting to throw some pistils but hoping now she’ll start stretching and getting bigger.

2 years ago

Day: 29

+4

Starting week 5 and not much I can say right now. Continued the LST a bit and did what I could to tuck a few of the bigger leaves. Noticing a few pistils showing so hoping she’ll start stretching and getting a bit bigger.

2 years ago

Day: 28

+4

The end of week 4 and upped the intake of water from 350ML to 500ML and will gradually increase over the next week or two. Also went to half strength bytes as well. Tied another branch or two down to open her up more and so far she’s recovered well from all training.

2 years ago

Day: 26

+4

Went and tied her back down today and she’s really opened up now so hopefully as open as she is, the rest of the branches will start stretching now. I’m already starting to see a few pistils so wanna really get her even out.

2 years ago

Day: 25

+3

Gave her about 350ML’s of water and a light dose of nutrients today. Still keeping the dosage about 1/4 strength until she starts getting a little bigger. I also did my best to tuck a couple of the bigger leaves to keep the lower sites open but might end up removing a couple.

2 years ago

Day: 24

+2

Chugging along nicely and has turned back to the light after tying her down again yesterday. Will let her go for a bit before tying her down again, wanna get some more stretch out of her. Will give her a bit of water tomorrow and nutes and will up the water a bit as well.

2 years ago

Day: 23

+5

Continue with a little more LST today but not much, just tied the main branch down in a new direction and hopefully the lower branches will start stretching enough to start tying them down soon.

2 years ago

Day: 22

+2

Starting week 4 and she’s recovered and it standing tall again after starting LST. I want her to stretch some more and then will continue. Gave her about 200ML of water today and just letting her do her thing for now.

2 years ago

Day: 21

+2

The end of week 3 and decided to start LST. She’s starting to branch out nicely so wanted to get as much light to the other branches as I possibly could. She’s good on water for a few days but did give her a light mist.

2 years ago

Day: 20

+2

Almost the end of week 3 and she’s doing great. Gave her about 200ML of plain pH’d water today and I’ve notice she always droops a bit after giving her some but picks right up after a couple hours but will still keep an eye on her to make sure it wasn’t too much. Other than that, she still somewhat short but her lower growth is coming up pretty good so want to start some LST soon.

2 years ago

Day: 18

+2

Nothing new today, just some updated pictures and checked to see how much height she gain and very minimal right now, about 1/8 of an inch bit looking nice and heathy. Her “lower” growth is starting to grow a bit but still seems a bit early to start some LST, will probably wait until next week or so.

2 years ago

Day: 17

+3

Had to give her a bit more water today, the soil was already dry according to the soil meter. She took well to it yesterday so she’s definitely not overwatered so should be good today.

2 years ago

Day: 16

+2

She’s still coming along nicely and gave her her first feeding of nutes today. Only went about a quarter the suggested dosage and only about a cup and a half watered around the base. I’ll keep an eye on her to make sure she takes everything in ok.

2 years ago

Day: 15

+2

Starting week 3 and all is good and seems to be on track. Will up the water intake just a tad and will start giving her a light feeding of Trchnaflora nutrients this week. Gave her a small amount of plain pH’d water today and a foliar spray.

2 years ago

Day: 14

+2

The end of week 2 today and I’m going to start giving her a light nutrient schedule starting week 3. I’ll be using the technaflora nutrient line. I’ve been using Advanced Nutrients but am just about out and waiting for more so picked up the technaflora line and a local garden center so we’ll see how she does with it.

2 years ago

Day: 13

+1

Almost the end of week 2 and she’s looking green and healthy. Will probably be starting a light nutrient schedule in the next few days but still not giving her much for water, just keeping the top layer moist and every couple of days pouring about 100ML of plain water a few inches around the base.

2 years ago

Day: 11

+2

Another day of nothing much happening right now. I did spray her down a little and raised the lights a bit to try and get her to stretch a little. Also gave her about 100ML of pH’d water around the base of the stem again.

2 years ago

Day: 10

+1

Overall she’s still doing well and nothing I can really give any details on since all she’s doing is root work for the most part. Just giving her light sprays of water daily and doing what I can to keep the humidity up for her.

2 years ago

Day: 9

+2

All still looking good and nothing to really speak of. Just continuing to give her light sprays of water to keep the top soil moist and every couple days I pour a small amount in about 4-5 inches around her. So far she seems to like it and not having any issue.

2 years ago

Day: 8

Starting off week 2 today and so far so good. Nothing much really going on with her right now. This is typically the boring part and just watching her water intake and keeping the humidity up.

2 years ago

Day: 7

End of the first week and all seems to be going good so far. Not much for growth but the roots seem to be doing their work. Gave her just a splash of water today and gave her a little mist.

2 years ago

Day: 6

All looking good still so far. Gave her a light mist of water and poured a small anount in a circle about 4 inches from the plant stem.

2 years ago

Day: 4

Another day gone by and all looking good with her. Gave her another light mist of water and pour just a tiny bit in a circle about 3-4 inches outside of the main stem.

2 years ago

Day: 3

Nothing new today, just the beginning stages of growth. Gave her a light mist of water and keeping the humidity up in the tent for her and all is good as of now.

2 years ago

Day: 2

All is well but she was starting to stretch a bit already so added a bit more soil to the pot to bury her a little bit. Also added a little shelf in the tent to get her a bit closer to the light to eliminate any big stretching.

2 years ago

Day: 1

+1

She’s up and out of the soil and she’s showing her first set of leaves so calling today day 1. Gonna take it really easy with the watering and such with this girl and just gave the soil a light spray of pH’d water.
