Made some bird 💩 bubble hash. Just did a 220 and 120 micron. This is what happens when you over agitate dry trim. I’m turning these into temple balls anyway but I’m still disappointed about the color. Live and learn!

Cut, dried, and trimmed. Time to cure. Total weight is 12.8 ounces from four clones in a 2.6ft x 2.6ft grow tent. I used a 480watt light on 80% during veg and about 40% during flower. Started September 15, flipped to flower on October 8. I’m going to give myself some credit and say it’s about 1.5 grams per watt. Very happy with that. Flowered for 65 days. Dried for 8 days. Honestly it’s a little more crispy than I’d like but it smells incredible and the cure should help bring up the humidity a little. I’m curing without using Boveda pack for as long as possible.

Well that was a pain in the ass. But it’s done! Chopped on day 65 after 48 hours of dark and no water. Looking good. Temps are around 70f and 50rh, hoping to let it dry out for 7 days. Hopefully I’ll start trimming next Sunday. Looking like 12-14 ounces in this.

Day 63 of flower. Well, this is as far as she goes. Into the 48 hours of dark, no water, totally bro-sciencing it up. Crossing fingers for no mold and tight buds. Canopy felt heavy for sure. Yield should be incredible. I’ll be chopping her this Sunday on day 65 of flower! “Do not go gentle into that good night. Rage, rage against the dying of the light.” Rage my little trichomes, rage.

One month between each photo. Crazy how fast it grows. Almost like it’s a weed or something! Side notes. Going to manifold/mainline from now on. No more only lst, branches are too flimsy and hard to manage. Calibrate my ph pen every month. Plan for 10 weeks minimum for flower. Use a scrog net or two for branch support. Watering twice a day with half strength nutes. Top feed plants every 10 days. Train lower and plan for the stretch better so that I can use full power of lights. Use only two plants in my current set up so I can manage the canopy/under the canopy more effectively.

Cutting another sample branch that fell over. I have a problem and need to stop touching it lol Interesting to note that the trichomes vary in cloudiness. Top bud has a lot more clear on it than the lower ones. I wonder if the fox-tailing was producing new trichomes. Also, this branch has like 13Gs on it and Is making me think this harvest might actually yield half a pound. Second photo is the first sample branch all trimmed up after drying for four days. I’m going to have to push harvest to next week even though the branches are almost about to snap. These trichomes need another 10% amber.

Day 57 of flower! Alright well I changed my mind and won’t be harvesting tomorrow, unfortunately. I was going to harvest early to avoid the foxtailing but it looks like it’s actually part of the genetics so im going to let her mature for another week or two. Runoff is 800ppm.

Day: 78

Buds are getting heavy and the canopy is starting to fold lol. I should have kept the scrog net up for support but prioritized the dehumidifier instead. The small sugar leaf is fading more quickly than I’d like and the fox tailing is getting crazy. Think I’m going to just flush with PHd water for two more days and chop on Sunday. Hopefully the trichs finish up in time. They’re close enough but hope to see some amber by Sunday. The third picture is pretty extreme and only on one bud, thought it looked pretty funny! Last photo is one month ago on November 3rd.

lolaperez

lolaperez Thanks guys! And Gayla, after you mentioned it.. I think there might be some genetic factor to this foxtailing. My poor watering habits didn’t help but there are some strange patterns in growth that make me think the genetics might favor foxtailing/not be the most stable

Day 54 of flower. Turned the lights to 14 off and 10. Lowered the lights to 30%. Hopefully these helps mature the plants faster. I want to chop ASAP because of the fox tailing. Think I’ll chop next Wednesday at day 61.

organic_grower Looks awesome man!! Gonna be so good smoke.

gayla_d

gayla_d I love kush mints. Foxtailing (if not genetic related) is usually caused by light or heat stress, so good call on dimming.

lolaperez

lolaperez Thanks Organic! And hi Gayla, yeah hoping it helps. I think the fox tailing came from poor watering habits. I use an auto feeding system that doesn’t saturate the diameter of the pot so I have to hand feed it about once a week to get all the dry spots. Ignored this process for a few weeks and was around the time the fox tailing started :/

Day 53 of flower. Looks right on target for chopping next Friday. Some serious fox tailing has me considering chopping sooner. Trichomes are basically 95% cloudy with a handful of amber and clear trichs. Hopefully it ripens up quick. Also hoping for a sick fade on the leaves !

Never noticed the thin film that I circled in blue before. It looks similar to the thin film that forms along branches/stems so I’m guessing it’s a sign of positive growth. The red is circled just to highlight the fatass calyx and pistil growth. Last picture shows a funky little bud. I’m still spraying the base and pots down with a baking soda and soap mix as a precaution to powdery mildew. I cannot tell if the white stuff is pm or regular salt buildup. I’ve seen salt buildup before and this looks different.

Peng PM grows on leaves not pots

lolaperez

lolaperez That’s kinda reassuring. I’ll post a picture next time bc it definitely had that fuzzy look. I wouldn’t be surprised if cloth pots meet the same parameters to grow pm as leaves.

I cannot believing how much these girls are stretching. F23 and they are tall. Like 6 inches from the light tall. Saw what could be some powdery mildew forming on the pots so I’m trying to defoliate and increase the air flow. It’s hard to get to the back bushes. Mainlining/manifolding would have made the canopy 10x easier to manage. Good news is the plants looks rock solid and very healthy. Lowered the lights to 60% because some of the buds were getting light burn.
