LPC + GDP

Fall 2021

GDP cross in coco coir and soil mix, LPC in soil. Both planted in 5 gal Vivosun fabric grow bags. Sharing one 100W LeFreshinsoft full spectrum grow lamp and a CloudLine T4 exhaust fan w/temp control set to high of 76F/60% RH during late veg (week 5-8). Fox Farms nutrient trio schedule adjusted to more gradually ramp up PPM.

Last pics before chop for GDP tribrid, which I think I’m calling “Double Purple Death”. Buds actually turned out slightly bigger than the London Pound Cake, probably since it grew much closer to the light.

LPC #75 is looking good, however trichomes are still looking awfully clear on this one. Trichome analysis pics to follow.

Trichome analysis of LPC #75. Big, bulbous trikes, but very few seem to have gone amber or even milky yet. As this is a heavy indica, I think I’m going to let it go another week (two weeks total) past the original chop date, for a total 12 weeks of flower.

Double Purple Death trichome analysis. Somewhat smaller bulbs than the LPC, but still plentiful, with beautiful purple and orange pistils visible. Mostly cloudy and even amber trikes can be seen. As this is mostly a sativa dominant strain, I think she’s ready to harvest.

Great progress on LPC over the past week. Buds are getting swollen!

Good progress on GDP, too - could be a good or a bad thing, but it looks like I’m getting a lot of smaller colas with this girl. Trimmed back most of the larf early in flower, she just has so many more tops than the other plant it’s hard to compare.

Upper rosettes flushing out and darkening on LPC. Leaves have been “praying” on this one slightly; seems quite happy.

GDP has an entire new set of single-bladed foliage! According to the breeder, this is somewhat common due to unstable genetics. Top leaves are coming in sets of 3s and 5s.

Both plants have mostly recovered from pesticide burn. Lightly defoliated burnt leaves. Planning on week 10 switch to flower.

BeauXDaciousBudz Babies are saved! 😊 id try diatomaceous-earth next time. Maybe. I had fungus gnats from wet top soil. I bought azomax - wasn’t willing to foliar and didn’t see the progress I wanted. So I top dressed my pots With de and the majority died in 2 days. I watered again and it brought for the larvae(not much at all.) so I top dressed again and now I have none. I saw one like 2 days ago and I smushed it with my finger. It’s just a suggestion... idk 🤷🏾‍♂️ I just know tiny dust sized slivers of glass can’t be too fun for any little creature. Best of luck. Can’t wait to see whatcha get! 😊 💨

DoctorCarbon

DoctorCarbon Yeah, that may be one of the last times I use a foliar spray… at least, at that concentration! 😅 I actually did use a bit of diatomaceous earth, just didn’t have enough to dress the soil completely. Still dealing with the odd fungus gnat or two… spider mites seem to have been eradicated though, between the spray and the beneficial mites. If the gnats become a problem, DE might be my first line of defense

Both plants seem to be tolerating pesticide application well. Only finding dead spider mites. Three packets of swirskii mites placed on each plant. Light raised 4in after slight light burn spotted on top of GDP.

Day: 48

Confirmed the beginnings of a spider mite infestation several days ago; applied neem oil foliar spray and soil drench at first signs of infestation. Last night after lights out, applied homemade pesticide spray: 1/2 tablespoon neem oil, 1/2 teaspoon ground clove, 1/2 tablespoon citric acid and 4.5ml 100mg nicotine concentrate in 16oz of soapy water. Both plants (and even cuttings) seem to have tolerated it well. Remaining visible spider mites seem to be immobile, or moving much slower. Planning to introduce swirskii predatory mites tonight after pesticides have been fully absorbed and foliar rinse. LPC after miticide application.

mattekar We’re around the same time during the grow, how does your GDP smell? Good luck with the grow!

DoctorCarbon

DoctorCarbon Many thanks man! Smells mostly earthy, possibly piney, with a strong fruity note to it. I’ll follow you for updates.

mattekar

mattekar Thanks man! It’s weird I have one plant that smells like ammonia the rest just smell lightens fruity and/or earthy
