    This week was a walk in the park. Just feed them a gallon a day of solution and they are happy. I have noticed they like that I have stopped tucking and training. They are stretching but not as fast as I would like to see. I think the trellis is useless. No trimming at all this week and they are happy with that too. Seems like they stop stretching if I trim anything. So I am probably going to remove the trellis and let them do their thing. I definalely let them Veg way too long. So now they are bushy little munsters and I dont think there is anything I can do about that now. They are definately showing off their Indica Phenotypes right now. Hope to see a little more of the sativa characteristics soon. Like to see some daytime meds but either way I am stoked they are flowering and smell great when I open the box. Stoked with how they have turned out, but I will not let them veg that long again. Lol.

      SSJ, they look stunning, absolutely stunning. Clearly though, the Indica genetics are dominant. I don't think you're going to see too much stretch. The buds are gorgeous and I can see the little trichomes beginning to emerge.

      Alltatup!!! Look at my newest post!!! 6 inches in 2 days!!!!!! Worried though I have 72 budsites and they are all growing healthy. I dont think I have that much room. I think I am going to lollipop them but not sure this far into flower. I started 12/12 on the first day of December. Got any advice you could throw my way by chance?
      Merry Christmas!!!!!

    So these gals are stretching out finally and I have way more budsites than I anticipated. I think I need to lollypopthese girls now they have some height. Probably wait until Saturday. Drinking up a gallon and a half now. I need to get more nutes. Just popped the top on my last 3 quarts of the flora trio. Will get them this week after Christmas. Does anyone have experience with jungle trimming this late in flower????

    Merry Christmas!!!! ๐ŸŽ…

      Merry Christmas, SSJ: What week are you in? If you can get in there and just trim the bottom totally in the shade, that should help... You want the energy to go to the bud sites in the light.

    I am on week 13 from seed. But week 4ish of flower. December first I switched lights to 12/12 but they didnt care. Couldnt even notice anything until the 8th so 3ish to 4ish is the flowering week.

    Hope everyone has a safe warm and Merry Christnas surrounded by love and segregated from NegVibes!!!!!

      Whelp it's done... ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜Ÿ๐Ÿ˜จ๐Ÿคฏ I trimmed up Raelynn. She seems to be about 2bdays ahead of Raeline so wanted to see how she reacted before I just go all out on both of my girls... (She is still bushy as hell though...)

        Oh. Wow. They look so good. Here's a quote from Nebula's "Flower Defoliation" tutorial:

        "From week 3 and on, I only remove leaves if they're covering a bud site (and I can't tuck the leaf away) or if the plant starts getting too bushy through the middle and bottom. Each leaf provides energy to the plant, and I cherish themโ€ฆ unless they get in the way! ๐Ÿ™‚"
        https://www.growweedeasy.com/nebulas...ation-tutorial

        So I think with all that lush growth, you'll be safe removing fan leaves that cover big bud sites. Keep doin what you're doin!!!

        Alltatup I agree. You cant even tell I did anything to them today!!! Just as perky as ever. Makes me wonder if I should have done this a few weeks ago. Lol. Love your growboxes. I have a growbox design that I am working on that is not a far shot off from what you have going on. Lol. When I get it finished I will tag you in it. For sure.

        Sallisawjim I wish I had the know-how to put a grow box together, but I don't... I really can't wait to see yours.

      Whelp.... I followed Nebulas tutorial on Flower Defoliation and since I am right at the point of no return considering heavy defol, I just dove in and did it. Nebula and Sirus have never steered me wrong so off the diving board I went. Lol. I will add that in doing this heavy defol, I feel like I have a better understanding of their structure and physiology and how they grow. I think I should have done this a few weeks ago, but at least they are mature to the point that they can handle it. Not just light plucking here and there when they need it. I think they look much healthier also. Happy with the results.

      You can see that Raelynn is the farthest along in the pics....

        Great job, SSJ! There's an old saying--a chicken in every pot--, but we say, "Air flow around every cola"!!! They look like they can breathe a lot easier now.

      Seems strange, but they stretched like crazy last night. There are preflower forming all the way down the branches now. Seeing real progress. These girls didnt even blink at all the carnage from the past couple days. Wow.

        They really did stretch, didn't they? Look at the main trunks on them: they're massive.

      STRETCH!!!! They are stretching and drinking. I didn't even get a stall from that heavy defol Sunday. They just kept right on trucking along. Preflowers/pistols look to have a purplish tint on Raeline. Raelynn has creamy ones. Interested to see this showdown in Flower mode! Raeline is growing up and Raelynn is growing out. They are hungry that's for sure. I finally got my EC pen in and have their EC set right.

        Just keep your eye down below, make sure there's good air circulation, no wet leaves sticking to each other and no buds touching each other; last thing you want is bud rot!!

        Yes ma'am. I have been and I also have been watching for any water drops or wet leaves when I am poking around in the box every day a couple times a day. These secondary popcorn nuggets are starting to have to be moved around every day now. Keep popping up through the canopy. I counted earlier. I have 62 flowers popping up and every one looks good. Keep getting bigger and bigger every day. They are still stretching. Crazy. Figured they would be done by now. Had to almost supercrop a few branches but figured out if I just tie them towards the outside I will be okay but then now I dont jave ang more room around the edges and the centermost flowers are starting to crawl their way up over the rest of the canopy again. Endless battle. I think they just like the attention. Lol

        Actually, now that I think about it, something similar happened to me on my last grow. The Blue OG kept stretching and stretching far beyond the 3 week stretch. I think it must have to do with some bit of Sativa in her genetics...???

        And can you please post a picture of the whole box? I want to see the complete effect!! These girls are quite interesting; I remember when they were little rug rats...

      Here are the latest pics. Alltatup, I did the best I could to get the whole box. They are STILL stretching. Wow. I know it looks like the one on the left needs more done, just but I just have a branch bent down there. But it did get less trimming than the other. Just for experimental and learning purposes. I also see that this one has way bigger bugs than the one lollipoped on the right.

        Thank you very much. I am pretty excited. One of my mains is 7 inches long and they are still covered with white hairs. Pretty excited about them. I am doing a water change tonight. I will update shortly after.

      Soooooo, I know it's been some days since I checked in. I have been slammed. Starting up a new business!!! Got my cultivators license in Oklahoma!!!! Yay.

      I ended up changing my light for the XML 350 from Advanced LED based close to me. My light didnt jave enough red for my babies so I switched. They are happier now. Starting to fatten up nicely. Most of these flowers you see are just the tops of 8 and 9 inch long colas. Imagine my surprise when I seen all that!!!! Wow. They are drinking about 2.5 gallons a day and are going strong!!! ๐Ÿ‘ฝ๐ŸŒฑ๐Ÿ‘ฝ

      Huge thank you to everyone on here for all the advice and direction. I couldnt be happier with my girls!

      Super cool week Chilling with the ladies. They were my comfort this week during the storm. They are doing their thing for sure. I am mostly worried about keeping them separated. Starting to have to tie more and more away from each other. Their growth is crazy. I think they are done shooting out new leaves. Seems like the canopy is starting to thin out a little and now I am able to see which buds need to be tied where to keep them from sticking to the ether. Super sticky. Super smelly. I can only imagine what they are gonna taste like after my cure. Think they are coming along nicely. Was definately a great idea to switch lights. They love the blurple light.

      Giant Thank you to all that has helped my first grow be so successful up to this point. Really happy I found this community... Hope everything is going alrite and their ladies are good....

        SSJ, they are turning into young ladies!! The colas are amazing: I love that side shot. This is so good that they are churning out the good aromas!!!!! STUNNINGLY BEAUTIFUL!!! You are a Cannabis whisperer, SSJ: for real.

      Well, they are definately going through some changes. They have not been as thirsty. Only 2 gallons so far this week.buds are getting fatter and sticky as hell. Smells AMAZING!!! Also looks like their buds are turning purple. That's strange and unexpected. Not mad about it at all, just didnt expect purple. I know DinaFem has Purple Moby Dick but these girls are supposed to be original Moby Dick. Kinda wanna hit up Seeds Supreme and inquire. But I am totally happy with them so no bother. The clippings I took are rooting nicely. ( I used some cloning gel on some of the clippings and tried cloning) Dont have room for them here so they are at a safe place for now. Couldnt believe it. Now I have 12 little babies!!! Sorry I am droning on and on. That Purple God Bud does its thing niocely... lol ๐Ÿ‘ฝ๐ŸŒฑ๐ŸŒฑ๐ŸŒฑ
