Right about 8 days or so if drying and she’s hit the jars and ready for curing. I had a rough estimate of around 900 something grams but that was before I got the trimming and such done so I know it was a huge over estimation but the final dry weight is 144 grams. So a little over 5 ounces so I’m definitely happy with that. They are definitely quality buds too and getting ready to role one up and see how she is.

hashCompany Yo that looks gas as fuck. Great job man. What kind of lights do you use again?

BBlack19 Much appreciated man, she is definitely an amazing smoke. I’m using AGLEX COB LED “1200” watts.

Day: 95

Well today ended up being the day I chopped her down. I got everything chopped up but about to start the trimming process. Once that is finished, maybe tonight but most likely tomorrow, I’ll have a final wet weight for her. Every bud is 100% rock solid so this should end up being a pretty hefty wet and dry harvest when all is said and done. Rough weight as of right now is 967 grams.

Day: 94

Gave her 2 more gallons of plain water today and that will probably be it. She will be getting chopped this weekend and gonna let her dry completely up before cutting. Starting to show quite a bit of amber trichs so she’s ready, just holding out till Friday.

2 years ago

Day: 93

+15

She’s getting really close now, I can almost taste her. Thinking about chopping most of here either Friday or Saturday. Buds are nice and dense and wanna get the lower popcorn to fill in after chopping the main colas. Not seeing much for amber trichs but there’s a few in there and she’s all cloudy other than that.

2 years ago

Iceberg_Slim You have any more seeds for this strain?

BBlack19 I gotta look through what I have but I might have one or two left.

Day: 92

+10

Started week 14 off with 2 gallons of plain pH’d water. It’s looking like this will probably be her final week and she’ll get the chop this coming weekend. I’m still thinking I’m not going to do a full harvest, I’ll chop the main buds and such and see if I can get the lower popcorn shit to fatten up. This is one of the best plants I’ve grown to date and want to maximize as much of her as I can.

2 years ago

Day: 91

+6

The end of week 13 and tomorrow will most likely begin the final week before chopping this beauty. She’ll get another 2 gallons of plain water tomorrow and that she’ll only be getting plain water till the end. The buds are so fat and dense, frosty as hell and the smell is just amazing. Should be my top harvest.

2 years ago

Day: 90

+10

Gave the girl 2 gallons of plain pH’d to 6.4 water today. She’s got a week or so left and will most likely chop her next Saturday. Most of her colas are so far and dense, this will probably be my best and biggest harvest to date.

2 years ago

Day: 89

+20

She’s getting close to chopping, thinking next weekend will be the day. Gonna give her one more week to fatten up. She is an absolutely stunning girl and pictures don’t do any justice. She’ll be getting some straight pH’d water tomorrow.

2 years ago

Day: 88

+16

Looking like this time next week, I might be giving this girl the chop finally. The trichs are completely cloudy with about 10% amber so today for her water, I followed the Technaflora chart and gave her 5ML of Magical and 80ML of SugarDaddy in 2 gallons of water pH’d to 6.5. She’s been getting 2 gallons of water every other day so after today and until harvest, she’ll get just straight pH’d water. The buds are fat, heavy, frosty and the yo-yo’s are the only thing really holding her up. She’s fading fast so hopefully this final week, the pistils will finish dying off and if she needs a little more time, I’ll give it to her.

2 years ago

Day: 87

+16

Ole girl is starting her fade now and she’s just about all cloudy and even seeing a few ambers in there. Going to go ahead and start the “flush” her next watering, which will be tomorrow. I might not do a full and complete chop when the time comes but I’ll get the big and main colas off and see if I can get the smaller stuff underneath to fatten up a bit before chopping the rest.

2 years ago

Day: 86

+11

Gave her two gallons of water and cal-mag today, pH’d at 6.7. She’s definitely starting to fade out now so next watering, I might just go ahead and start to flush her out because it’s starting to look like she ain’t got much time left. Pistils are starting to really shrivel and it’s mostly cloudy trichs throughout. She’s got a lot of weight to her and had to add a few more yo-yo’s to keep her colas held up.

2 years ago

Day: 85

+12

Starting week 13 today and it’s starting to look like she’s got about 2 weeks or so left. The trichs are about 75% cloudy right and the pistils are starting to shrivel up quite a bit now. I’ll probably give her another week or so then will start flushing her.

2 years ago

Day: 84

+13

The end of week 12 today and gave her her 2 gallon drink of water and cal-mag. Other than that, she’s doing good and starting to notice the pistils just now starting to shrivel up just a bit. Still bright white and standing tall but some are starting.

2 years ago

Day: 83

+13

She’s starting to develop a little darker coloring on her towards the top and it’s making her look fantastic. The smell is amazing and she’s frosty as hell. She’s got some really thick and bright white pistils still shooting out so still looking at a good couple of weeks before she’s ready for harvest. Will be giving her some pH’d water and cal-mag tomorrow.

2 years ago

Day: 82

+11

All is looking good and had to give the girl 2 gallons of pH’d water and cal-mag today. She really seems to like the yo-yo’s helping her support the weight of the buds. She’s fattening and frosting up more each day and looking like we might be down to the LST couple of weeks.

2 years ago

Day: 80

+9

Things are going good and gave her 2 gallons of water and nutes today. Afterwards I placed her back in the tent but had to hook up some of the yo-yo’s in there because she’s tall and the buds are starting to weigh her down so hopefully she won’t stress so much trying to stand tall now.

2 years ago

Day: 79

+9

All looking good and she’s chugging along nicely, couple more weeks and will probably start flushing her to finish up. She’s almost dried up already so she’ll be getting 2 gallons of water and nutrients tomorrow.

2 years ago

Day: 78

+14

Starting week 12 and had a ton of leaves that yellowed and died off. Most were from the bottom of the plant so thinking it’s just the natural process. Gave her two gallons of water and cal-mag today and the next watering will be with nutrients. She’s definitely starting to fatten and fill up and really frosty and sticky.

2 years ago

Day: 76

+6

All looking good now, she was a bit droopy today because I didn’t get a chance to water her yesterday but within an hour of getting water today, she perked right up.

2 years ago

Day: 74

+14

Nothing new today, just took her out for new pictures and out her back in the tent and tucked some leaves. Noticing a two branches that just aren’t getting much light so thinking about chopping them off but not sure because it could be too late to do it and don’t want her to be stunted this late into the grow.

2 years ago

Day: 73

+12

She was dried up again today so she got 2 more gallons of water and nutes. The smell is really starting to get strong, like a sweet funky cheese.

2 years ago

Day: 72

+12

Not much happening right now, she’ll definitely be ready for water again tomorrow and tomorrow’s dose will be with nutrients. Just kinda fluffed her up a bit and tucked the leaves before putting her back into the tent.

bud

bud Hey man love the photos I’m updating the app and they look great in the new album format.

Day: 71

+15

Starting off week 11 with 2 gallons of water and 15ML of Cal-Mag. She’s definitely starting to beef up and getting pretty frosty and smelly now. Had to remove a few more leaves towards the bottom that we’re dying off and just tucked the rest once she was out back in the tent.

2 years ago

Day: 70

+9

The end of week 10 and she’s still got a ways to go and gonna be way past the 9 weeks they’re “supposed” to take but I always expect things to go longer but this will most likely be a 15-16 week harvest. Other than that, I didn’t do anything with her today but she’s definitely going to be needing more water tomorrow.

2 years ago

Day: 69

+10

Right in cue, she was ready for water today so she got two gallons with cal-mag pH’d to 6.7. Looks like she’s finally stopped stretching at 27.2 inches tall and hopefully now she’ll start beefing up on the buds.

2 years ago

Day: 68

+9

All seems good and chugging along nicely after the heavy defoliation and somewhat lollipopping yesterday. Didn’t even take her out of the tent, just tucked a couple leaves that are trying to stand up and block the light.

2 years ago

Day: 67

+15

The pot was dry already today so gave her a feeding of nutes today and following their schedule of feed, water, water feed so next watering will be plain pH’d water. Did a pretty heavy defoliation as well as removing a bunch of lower growth. This will probably be the only time I do this to her and will just removed dying or dead leaves from here on out, I’m just hoping I didn’t over do it but I supposed we’ll see how she does the next few days.

2 years ago

Day: 65

+11

She’s definitely getting pretty cramped in the tent but not a whole lot I can do about it. Doing what I can to keep all the sites exposed and went and cut a couple lower limbs off that aren’t getting much light. Also gave her 2 gallons of pH’d water and cal-mag today. I’m giving her about 2 gallons every two days, she’s drinking a ton. Next watering, I’ll be giving her a dose of the technaflora nutes.

2 years ago

Day: 64

Starting week 10 today and not much happening. I didn’t even take her out of the tent, just left her in, tucked some leaves and got updated pics. Looks like she’s really starting to bud up nicely now.

Ending week 9 today with 2 gallons of plain pH’d water. She’s starting to really develop buds and she’s smelling very sweet. Other than that, just got some updated pictures and tucked the leaves.

2 years ago

Day: 62

This girl just isn’t stopping, she’s huge and only getting bigger each day. She’s just about ready for water so she’ll get two gallons of plain pH’d water tomorrow. Just did a little leaf tucking with her and fit her back into the tent.

2 years ago

Day: 60

+7

Had to give the girl 2 gallons of water and nutes today but was just about out of my usual Advanced Nutrients so had to swap to what I had, Technaora Kit so we’ll see how she does with it. I’ve heard good things so I’m sure she’ll be fine. She’s getting big and starting to get cramped in the tent but not much I can do right now, just trying to get her to grow UP instead of out.

2 years ago

Day: 59

+7

She’s stretching like crazy, almost 2 inches the last 24 hours. She’s gonna be a big girl for sure. Just got some updated pics today and tucked the leaves again.

2 years ago

Day: 58

+7

Gave the girl 2 gallons of water and nutes today. She’s going through two gallons every 48 hours now, really drinking a ton. Other than that, just retucked the leaves and letting her be.

2 years ago

Day: 57

+9

Starting week 9 and although she got 2 gallons of water yesterday, she’ll be ready for more tomorrow, she’s drinking like a fish right now. Other that that, I did a light defoliation today and will give her a day or two then do a little more. I wanna get some of these giant fan leaves off and out of the way.

2 years ago

Day: 56

+7

The end of week 8 and the girl was thirsty today so gave her 2 gallons of water and nutes. Gonna let her soak that up for a bit and probably remove a couple big fan leaves tomorrow so she’ll be opened up a bit more.

2 years ago

Day: 55

+11

She’s starting to take off and stretching big time. She added about 1.4 inches in about 24 hours or so and she’s really smelling sweet. Going through water like crazy too so will give her water and nutes tomorrow. Placed her back in the tent and did a bit of leaf tucking.

2 years ago

Day: 54

+9

Nothing much new today, just took her out for some updated pictures. Put her back into the tent and tucked as much as I could. I want to remove some fan leaves but she’s doing really good right now and I don’t want to stunt her in any way.

2 years ago

Day: 53

+10

She’s been going through the water and nutes recently so I upped her from 1 gallon of water to 2 and gave her that with nutes today. She’s definitely starting her stretch and with her having a nice even canopy, this girl should end up being a beauty.

2 years ago

Day: 52

+10

Nothing much new today, this girl is getting pretty damn huge. Just really took her out to check if she needs water and got some updated pictures. She should be ready for some water and nutes tomorrow. Placed her back into the tent and tucked as much as I could to get all the sites getting lights.

2 years ago

Day: 51

+8

Everything is looking good with this girl and not much going on today. I removed a couple GIANT fan leaves and will continue removing some of the bigger ones every few days. Her canopy is almost perfectly even and looking like this will end up being a pretty decent harvest.

2 years ago

Day: 50

+8

Starting week 8 now and getting more and more pistils so going to say this is the start of week 1 of flower. Didn’t really have to do much with her but she is starting to go through water pretty quick so upped the watering to a gallon and a half, along with nutes. I noticed a couple of leaves with a little calcium deficiency starting to added Cal-Mag to nute mixture.

2 years ago

Day: 49

+6

The end of week 7 and seeing a few more pistils so thinking she’s finally entering the flower stage soon. I ended up removing one lower branch that just isn’t growing or getting any light then tucked everything away and put her back into the tent.

2 years ago

Day: 47

+7

No real issues going on right now. I went ahead and gave her a gallon of water and nutes today, she was pretty dry and ready. Then just put her back in the tent and and tucked the leaves as much as possible.

2 years ago

Day: 46

+9

I went ahead and tied down the main stem once more. It seemed like she was starting to get out ahead of everything and I wanted to keep everything as even as possible. I’m finally seeing a few pistils now so hopefully she starts her stretching and budding soon. The pot is starting to get pretty light so I’ll give her a feeding of water and nutes tomorrow. I’m trying to keep the middle opened up because it’s a little lighter in color and would like the sites in there to stretch a bit.

2 years ago

Day: 45

+7

Not much happening, might be seeing the first bit of pistils starting to show but still to small to fully tell but should know here in the next couple of days. Other than that I readjusted and tucked some more leaves to keep the middle opened up.

2 years ago

Day: 44

+8

This girl is looking g great and have no real complaints or issues right now, just hoping she’ll start shooting some pistils out soon. Didn’t do much with her other than tucking some leaves.

2 years ago

Day: 43

+6

Starting week 7 and she was ready for water and nutes today so gave her a full gallon. She’s getting bigger now so next watering, I might up it to a gallon and a half. Other than that, just tucked some leaves and readjusted some of the tie downs.

2 years ago

Day: 42

+6

It’s the end of week 6 today and she’s still begging and no signs of pistils yet. Hopefully by the end of week 7 she’ll be starting to flower. Gonna give her some water and nutes in Monday.

2 years ago

Day: 41

+8

Almost the end of week 6 and it’s starting to look like this will be a fairly decent sized girl. She’s still not showing any pistils yet so hopefully that starts happening soon. I removed two more large fan leaves from the top and I might end up tying the main stem down one more time and the canopy should then be nice and even.

2 years ago

Day: 40

+5

Everything is looking great so far and didn’t really have much to do with the girl today. Just took her out for some pictures and then tucked some leaves to keep all the sites open. Still waiting for her to start showing some pistils.

2 years ago

Day: 39

+9

Gave her a gallon of water and nutes today, she was pretty dry. I also removed a couple fan leaves that were blocking the light. LST was continued on a couple new branches and also tied the main branch over to try and keep the canopy as even as possible.

2 years ago

Day: 38

+8

Removed the two largest fan leaves up top to keep the light shining to everything underneath. Didn’t do any adjustments to the tie downs but I will in another day or two. She’s good on water and just waiting to start seeing some pistils and seeing her start to flower, which I’m hoping should be starting soon.

2 years ago

Day: 37

+7

Did a little readjusting of the tie downs today and tucked the leaves back in. Also shut one of the lights off in the tent and raised the other one to try and get the tied down branches to stretch up a bit.

2 years ago

Day: 36

+8

Starting off week 6 and she’s looking good. Went ahead and did a little more LST and tucked a bunch of leaves. She’s got a couple of days before she needs anymore water or nutes. No sign of any pistils yet but the way my last couple grows have went, I should start seeing some soon.

2 years ago

Day: 35

Day: 34

+5

Everything’s going good right now. Went ahead and tied another branch or two out and tucked some leaves. Was gonna give her some water today but think I’ll hold off one more day.

2 years ago

Day: 33

+5

Went ahead and removed the two large top fan leaves today to keep light at the bottom. Continued LST on a few branches today and turned the main branch down about an inch. She went from 5 inches tall to about 4. Will continue LST as the days go and she’ll be needing some water and nutes tomorrow.

2 years ago

Day: 32

+4

She seems to be doing really good right now and some of the lower branches are starting to stretch to the lights a bit now so hopefully in a few more days I’ll be able to continue LST. She’ll probably need some water and nutes by that point too.

2 years ago

Day: 31

+8

Went ahead and continued the LST today. She was stretched up to about 4.5 inches and tied her down to about 3.5. Readjusted some things and tucked some leaves to get the lower sites to stretch up, right now they seem to be stretching out. Hopefully they’ll turn up to the lights soon so I can get some stretch out of them as well.

2 years ago

Day: 30

+4

Had to remove two more giant fan leaves today to keep everything lower opened up. Want still give her another day or two to stretch before continuing with the LST. I did tie one lower branch out but that’s been it so far.

2 years ago

Day: 29

+4

Starting week 5 and no signs of any pistils yet and she doesn’t seem to have any real ill effects from the 4 fan leaves I removed yesterday. I’ll give her a couple more days to stretch out a bit then will continue with the LST.

2 years ago

Day: 28

+2

The end of week 4 and gave her a full gallon of water and nutes today. I removed 4 large fan leaves today as well to ensure all the lower growth gets light. Also continued LST and tied her down again.

2 years ago

Day: 27

+4

Everything’s going smoothly so far. Gonna give her some water and nutes tomorrow and continue LST if it looks like she’s stretched a bit more and is ready.

2 years ago

Day: 26

+3

All going well from the LST yesterday and gonna give her another day or two to stretch before continuing. Some of the lower chutes are starting to come up now so another few days I’ll be able to tie them out as well.

2 years ago

Day: 25

+4

Continued a little with the LST today and will continue again after I get more stretching. Hopefully the lower stuff will start stretching out a bit more soon. Still early but want to start getting her shaped.

2 years ago

Day: 24

+2

She responded well to LST and reaching back for the light. I’ll give her another day to stretch then will continue the LST and hopefully the lower branches will start to stretch out a bit soon.

2 years ago

Day: 23

+2

Went ahead and gave her a full gallon of water and nutes today, along with going ahead and starting some LST. I anchored down the main stem and tied her down in the opposite direction. Will let her reach for the light and stretch a bit and then will tie her down again.

Carreography Currently debating on training mine this way or just let them do their thing

BBlack19 I always debate the same thing but as they start growing, they get really bushy and LST helps tremendously.

Carreography Thinking about doing it to one plant and seeing how it compares to the rest over time in terms of yield and behavior .. my one problem is that I may need to move in July / August ... do you think I would lose time if I started training ? Basically need to flip to flower as soon as I can so I can pack up tent before the move ..

Day: 22

+2

The start of week 4 and she’s starting to take off now. Hoping to start some LST in the next week or so. Wednesday, I’ll give her a full half gallon of water and nutes.

2 years ago

Day: 21

+2

It’s the end of week 3 and she really seems to be taking off with growth now. Hopefully I can get her stem stronger so I can start some LST.

2 years ago

Day: 20

+2

All is good right. Was gonna start some LST soon but I need to get her main stem a little stronger first. So I adjusted the fans in the tent to hit on her a little more.

2 years ago

Day: 19

+2

She’s definitely getting a lot bigger now and doesn’t look like a runt much anymore. Not much height going at the moment but she’s starting to spread out nicely. When she dries out, I’ll probably give her the first feeding where I got to run off so all the soil will be wet. Starting to get a little bit of under growth now so will probably start some LST in a few days.

2 years ago

Day: 18

+1

She’s looking a bit better now and like she’s actually starting to get some nice growth going. The temps are a bit higher the last couple of days so she’s definitely drank a lot of water so gave her a little bit more today, along with a light feeding of nutes.

2 years ago

Day: 17

+2

Seems like she got a little bit of growth happening over the last 24 hours and hope it continues. Gave her a little bit of water today about 4 inches around the main stem so hopefully the roots will keep working and she’ll continue growing.

2 years ago

Day: 16

+2

She’s quite small for being into week 3 compared to all my other grows but letting her go and see what becomes of her. She’s looks pretty healthy other than that and will give her a little bit of water in a couple days.

2 years ago

Day: 15

+2

Starting week 3 and this girl definitely seems small so I went ahead and transplanted her into a 3 gallon fabric pot. Now that she’s got more room to stretch the roots, hopefully she’ll start getting a bit bigger.

2 years ago

Dazz82 How far are your lights?

Day: 14

+2

End of week 2 and gave her a little bit of water today. She’s definitely a slow grower and pretty small but want to give her another week or so before transplanting her into her 3 gallon pot. Other than that, I’m hoping she’ll start getting some good growth soon.

2 years ago

Day: 13

+2

Almost the end of week 2 and everything seems to be ok. She seems a little undersized but it could just be me. Hopefully she starts exploding with growth soon.

2 years ago

Day: 12

+2

Just some updated pics for progress. She’s definitely growing slowly compared to all my other grows but could be because of her issue early on but not giving up on her and letting her do what she does. I did give her a little bit of water today, since I haven’t really given her much so we’ll see how she’s doing tomorrow.

2 years ago

Day: 11

+2

Just letting her do her thing still. Not much for an update today other than some pictures for updates.

2 years ago

Day: 10

+2

Still nothing much to report today, gave her just a little bit of water with a spray bottle and that was pretty much it. She looks like she’s stopped the leggy stretching so hopefully she’ll do better now.

2 years ago

Day: 9

+2

Still not much happening but looks like moving her closer to the light seemed to of stopped the stretching a bit so hopefully she’ll start bushing out in the next couple of weeks.

2 years ago

Day: 8

+2

Starting week 2 and it seem like she might be recovering a bit. Not sure what was happening the past couple of day but she just wouldn’t stand up. Checked her out today and seems to be doing ok now. She’s a bit lengthy right now so placed her on a platform in the tent to get her closer to the light.

Day: 5

+2

Not much to update, just some pics for progress and sprayed the glass to keep it moist underneath.

Day: 4

+2

Another day down and nothing new to report. First couple weeks are slow and boring so just got some pictures for progress. Still keeping the glass over her for a higher humidity.

3 years ago

Day: 3

+2

So far so good and not much to really report right now. I did give her a light spray of water in the soil and on her leaves but also on the inside of the glass for a higher humidity. Other than that, I’m just letting her go for now.

3 years ago

Day: 2

+1

Nothing too much to report today. I did take her out of the humidity dome and placed her into a solo cup and the tent. Within 10 minutes she started flopping over and laying down but once I place a glass over her for the humidity, she perked right up. I soaked the water prior to transplanting her so hopefully she’ll be ok.

3 years ago

Day: 1

She’s up and out of the soil and looking nice and healthy. I’ll keep her in the humidity dome for another day, then will put her into a solo cup and move her into the tent. I’ll continue to have a glass over top of her in the tent to keep the humidity up for her.

Day: 0

+1

Still day 0 but she’s starting to come out of the soil so hoping in the next day or two I can officially start day 1. Just gave her a spray of some water to keep the jiffy pellet moist and the humidity up in the dome.
