    Happy Saturday people!

    Today is day 40 for the Bubba Kush. I have just about finished the quadlining technique with her. I have the branches to the edge of the pot, so I ran out of coco to stake them down in lol.

    At this stage I might still bend a few of the smaller branches that still haven't reached the edge, but I'm currently out of 14 gauge electrical wire lol. Other than that I just defoliate and watch her grow from here on out.

    She is looking good overall. I accidentally snapped a branch while trying to train last week. Put tape on it, took it off yesterday, and it's looking pretty good.

    I then saw a branch that was not staked in at all and thought, "that's weird, why isn't it staked?" I go to bend it, and would ya look at that? It's the branch that I snapped and just took the tape off of yesterday lol. I think I reopened it's wound. Hopefully it will make a full recovery lol

    Have a great week guys and gals!

      I like your idea of using cage wire around the fabric pots, do you have it folded under the pot or just slipped over them?

      The cage is attached to a grate with space under it to breath, the cage is made from old 2x4 welded wire fencing.

          They are just getting ready for take off, that's all! Looking good!

        Yeah, so I did a update yesterday, but figured I’d do one today too. I had to add the other training ropes to my flux box and do some trimming and more training to both. Just like I had told OJH and Doug, if you go this route you have to stay on them all the time! After trimming JR I tried to get some good shots of how she’s done. I’ve referred to her as a spider crab. All the main stalks on her are about 1” or less off the soil and training her branches low too. If I had more soil in my flux box when I started she’d be the same way. Main stalk on JR is about 1/2” and branches are 3/8” or so. She was topped after second node and should produce some monsters.
        Well, there she be.

          Good day peoples. Had a busy week with my girls. One major problem has been addressed. You all know how we try to help other grower's and in the end 90% of the problems are caused by the grower. No different in my case. I just wasn't paying attention to what my plants were telling me. They were saying,"The light's too damn close dumbass!" Oh - new light - new problems.

          Wednesday night they told me in the only way they can - top leaves became wrinkly/canoeing/purply looking as well as drooooopy. Hmmmm………..check the manufacturers specs - yeah sure, how many times have i said that to other growers. Well the light was too close for probably 10 days. Moved it up thursday morning and they have recovered nicely in 2 days.

          The other noticeable difference in why they perked up is i changed nutrients - dropped General Hydroponics in favor of Green Planet. Gave them their first dose of the new nutes thursday morning and foliar fed them this morning. Pics are in the shower and some are before they got sprayed and some after.

          Continuing with the training - now I'm really just trying to pull some branches away from the middle's of Thing 2 and 3. Thing 1 is doing well. I got so many bud sites i need more than 2 hands to count them - so I'll just wait until they get much bigger and phatter - makes it easier to count.
          Have a great weekend everyone and happy growing.
          Happy plants make for big buds.

            New to me - not sure how long they've been around.

          Happy Weekend Update
          {8o_~

          Friday, while working on the Things - I found pistils. Both girls are showing them. Thing 2 is showing a little more (they were easier to spot, had to look to find them on Thing 1)

          so at 'sundown' last night - I changed out the MH bulb (its long past done, it tinkled and hummed if I set the ballast to %100). Installed a new HPS bulb (150,000 lumens, 2100 K)
          no tinkling today and ballast set to %100
          I do have a slight orangey glow to the grow room

          both are doing great - I was able to maintain a fairly flat profile with both plants. now, its time for those trained stems to turn up towards the light and become monster colas

          changed and cleaned reservoirs today. changed over to %25 GH Schedule "transition" (TDS: 623ppm, EC: 1246 microsiemens).
          a slight increase of nutes. from %20 to %25
          keeping a close eye on them, as last time I used %25 - I got some tip burn

          they are using water/nutes - taking 100-200 ml for daily 'top up'

          had been lazy, and stopped spritzing the girls. so picked up SeaBoost (a locally made, liquid seaweed fertilizer 0.1/0.1/2.0)
          been lightly spritzing a couple times per day. they seem to like it. my RH is low - so, Im sure they love any moisture on their leaves

          I am still quite impressed with the genetics. both plants have looked and behaved pretty much identically all along

          Friday 18 Jan is their last restraining session.
          going forward, I will adjust restraints, continue to tuck and fold leaves under trying to keep those tips exposed to light and air and pull colas away from each other (when that time comes )

            Man, what a salad, then!

          Oops 🙊 guess I should keep a closer eye on the weather. Temps dropped last night and didn’t have the heat on. I think they got down to like 56 F they were extremely wilted again and I thought I might have lost them but I quickly got the heat back on got temps back in the 70s and I think they’re slowly coming back around. I don’t think I’m going to have much of a yield off this grow if I keep having these problems. Frustrating. Just gotta keep a better eye on things I guess. Anyways I’m assuming the cold temps caused the pistols to change to pink. Just my guess.

            If you have room you can always put a programmable t stat and ceramic heater in your tent. I bought them for mine, but ended up not even needing them...lol. Talk about a waste of $75 on Amazon. Outside temp here is 9 today.
