Variety GrowBox

Summer 2019

Space Train: 60/40% Sativa/Indica strain, originally from a feminized seed pack from The Bank Genetics. This will be the second generation crop using seeds from my first foray into home cannabis cultivation. Crazy Glue: 50/50% Sativa/Indica, first generation crop from feminized seed pack from The Bank Genetics. Highest quality seed, probably. Lemon Train: 90/10% Sativa/Indica, seeds from a 99c addon from a purchase in Parachute. Seeds are non-feminized from Dutch Girl.

Day: 131

Chop day! The leafs started burning a bit near the lights and orange trichromes started popping up, so nows as good of a harvest time as any!

Lostedinahaze What grow box are you using.

Tres4_growsloud Nice 👍🏾

Day: 123

Trimmed a lot of the dead vegetation off yesterday, and a lot more of the fan leafs are looking like they’ll eventually die off. I wonder if this is another metric you can judge ripeness on? Trichromes are still predominately clear or opaquely white, and while I’ve seen amber heads, I think there’s still some maturation to be done.

Tres4_growsloud Yup looks like your close, looking good👍🏾

Tres4_growsloud For me personally with the high I like, I begin flush when I start seeing amber after flush keep in darkness for 2more days then chop..

Home from Alaska and the girls both look really good. The larger fan leaves continue to die off, but the buds themselves are looking really nice and super frosty. The trichromes are nearly all white and semi-opaque, with maybe the first evidence of ambering. No longer than 2 weeks until chop day.

Not much to report, I don’t notice much new growth and at this point I’m just looking for the trichromes to age and amber up.

The girls continue to chonk out, and now the large fan leafs are starting to die off, meaning that the plants are funneling nutrients to the flowers, in a last ditch attempt to get pollination. It’s a great sign that they’re getting close to chop day, but I’ve yet to see a amber trichrome yet.

The girls are looking nice and chonky! I think they’re really swelling up, but it’s slow going day-to-day, so progress can only really be seen in pictures. We’re probably 3-4 weeks out from chop, maybe less.

Hopefully the plants are continuing to swell, but if they’re not, I found potential pollen sacks on the Crazy Glue girl. They didn’t look anything like the pollen sacks on the actual male plant, but I’m worried I might have another hermaphrodite. I snipped off most of them and am watching the ones on the lower branches to see if their appearance changes. First guess is that they’re just a weird leaf formation, but time will tell.

The girls are starting to look super tasty. They have yet to develop their flavor profiles, but some of the pistils on the left plant are already starting to curl in and orange up. I hope they swell more than their current size, and I’m not too worried they won’t - we’re only 4/5 weeks into flower.

Bud sites are growing vigorous. Everything looks a-okay, knock on wood. Hopefully the buds continue to grow and swell.

Day: 76

Flowering continues, but at this point all I can really do is wait. Everything I’ve read says no more trimming after this point. There might be some mold on the root mat of the male plant I had to chop, so I might want to extract that at some point. Hopefully flowering goes well!

Day: 70

Did a pretty severe trim back of the biggest fan leaves today. In theory, this’ll open up more of the bud sites to the light, promoting growth. I might have time for one more trim, but this one was late - in the future, the first trim should be done right after the swap to 12/12.

The largest of the plants turned out to be a male, unfortunately. Oh well, it was okay for me to see what pollen sacks look like. Testicular-esque balls like the first picture are bad, and long, white hairs like in the third picture are good.

Got back from the wedding in Portland, and the plants are doing fantastically well! I think they’re taking to the flowering cycle very well. I just spent like 30 minutes giving them their first underskirt trimming, the maniples are really really cool looking!

Continuing to bulk out and things seem okay. There was some slight curling on the leaves but I hope that was just due to the light being a bit too close. Will track and hopefully they flatten out.

Vegging continues, we probably only have another week or so before flipping to flower. Exciting! Hopefully, nothing else goes wrong. The last photo shows today’s training session. Not sure if it was necessary or even a good thing to do, but some of the back colas were getting behind, so I just turned down all the others to match. I also hope this increases the yield on the single Crazy Glue girl by exposing more growth nodes to the light.

Man slow grow, lots going wrong but that also means I’m learning. I think my plants were experiencing nitrogen overload, which was causing dark green colors and leaf clawing. This is all derived from the original fuck up if not removing that cap from the EC sensor. Either the unit is loading more nutrients into the plants because I had to “restart” the vegetative state in Cloudponics, or its just the residue leeching into the water supply. Either way, I cleaned the tank a bit, drained and refilled the water bins, and the plants look much much happier.

HST training has continued with the larger plants as I wait for the smaller ones to catch up. The plant in the top left will be removed shortly, more of an experiment now than anything else. Everything is looking pretty good for the other three, though obviously lower left is a bit behind the others.

Came home from Portland to very solid growth and progress. I was able to do the last topping/pruning on the largest plant, so she’ll (hopefully it’s a girl!!) now develop 8 main colas. Two of the other plans that were topped initially before Portland look like they recovered great. Finally, my littlest girl grew up enough to be topped when I got home. The manifolds are looking really aesthetically pleasing. This style of high stress training appeals to me a lot more than the “wild” way. It’s like tree sculpting, or bonsai. Plus, hopefully the yield will be a lot larger!

Day: 32

Initial topping and trimming of 3/4 of the plants is complete. The last one just needs a bit more vegging time before it’s cutting time. Growth on ancillary mainlines of the first top look great. I’m going to wait to tie down the mainlines of the other two plants until we get back from Oregon.

First hair cut on the biggest of plants, topped at the third node on the two biggest plants, and trimmed all growth off below. On the second plant my knife slipped and I caught a growth node I wasn’t supposed to. Luckily, it’s on the bag seed plant, so I’m more interested to see how it grows than upset.

Recovery is going great, and the largest of the seedlings is about ready to be topped for the first time.

Recovery from all the excess nutrients looks to be coming along solidly. The Lemon Haze seems to be growing most fervently. I really hope that at least one of the Crazy Glue seeds take, they’re looking the weakest, currently.

Disaster! But at least I know what was wrong with this grow. I didn’t take the fucking cap off the EC filter, so my nutrient tank was over 10x the concentration that it should have been. Hopefully, it’s not too late but if they don’t recover in the next week or so it might just be worth it to start over.

Installed the rest of the trellis hooking, and five out of the six plants have sprouted! We’ll be LST’ing in no time.

Day: 4

The first sprout is opening its leaves to “sunlight”. This is one of the Lemon Train netcups, but all 6 look like they germinated and will be following this one shortly in sprouting.
