    DAY 19 12/12 DEFOLIATION:

    I think this is the most defol I've ever done, but being a stoner, I'm not completely sure. If I did it right, the buds should grow strong now. On five out of seven plants, the growth has been very strong: Jack Herer and the C99 in the LED box are stunted. They could have used more veg time to get over the early starvation trauma.

    I have to think the LED box looks gooder. Maybe it’s just coloration in the photo but they look .....intense? Probably the more brilliant greens but of course , they both are successful and thriving grows. Aside from the lights, do both boxes perform the same?

      Farmall I guess you're volunteering me to be the guinea pig... What I may do as a concession to you is grow one of the same strain in each box...

      Honored of course but that’s an incredible investment in time and spirit and I would never suggest that...BUT, we do learn a lot in these grows. I actually wish I’d known more about the process when I first started, even though I consider it a remarkable success. I know my next attempt will be superior due to all you have shown me and so many people here on the forum...my only forum. My dream of becoming a cultivator in a large dispensary when I grow up might actually become a reality someday... of course I’ll need a walker to go from one end to the other...😎. It’s taken me a long time to grow up this much.

      Farmall Yeah, I'm a little envious sometimes of the 40 year olds who've been growing for 20 years!!! But an artist is an artist no matter what age, so I hope to be pretty good at this by the time I'm 85... ;-}

      Thanks for stopping by all. Canuck147 BlueBudz The stretch was uneven because of my insistence on having 4 different strains in the same box. First time I've grown Sativa dominant strains in a while, and they were ready to switch to 12/12 when the others were not.

      PaganRich Way hay to you, too (sounds very 19th century). Yours look kushty as well.

      Ya I’m going to try and do just one plant in a tent this time around. Even three of the same strain I just grew we’re all so different. They were autos, one I had to kill because it didn’t go into flower the other two were so much different in size and the actual buds! I’m trying a lil noob scrog this time around😉

    The nutes are doing a great job: I haven't had a single problem with them.

    The defoliation is working, but of course not as well on the shorter plants. They didn't really make it up into the sweet, sweet spot height-wise. I won't come close to the 8 oz. I was dreaming of... Next time, next time I'll do better...

    STARTING WK 6 OF 12/12, DAY 36

    I'm thinking that the defoliation worked better for me this time. The colas that reached the light "sweet spot" have larger buds; the shorter plants that needed more veg time in order to take full advantage of the stretch have smaller buds on them. So I see this grow as a combination of mistakes and successes so far; live, grow and learn.

      LurkingInTheGrass You don't have to do that with me. I openly admit that I stunted four plants.

      But yes: the bonsai colas (as I'm now referring to these plants as bonsai'd) are stacking up nicely.

      LTG "are those colas stacked up, under the top bud?" Seems, and you can correct me, that the best stacking occurs when the symmetry has been broken on the branches. And of course tight nodes. I do love it when they stack, makes for a pretty picture.

      Looking great, I have grown Royal Gorilla a few times now and every one was very stout! Side by side with a Critical it was about 30% shorter. The funny thing is the yield was almost the same! Good luck I think they look great

    Week 6 trichomes:

    These girls were looking particularly fetching this morning. I took a close look with my loupe, and I could see the nice clear triches covering the calyxes. It's interesting to watch the pistils (stigmas) start to dry, twist and turn color.

    I'm keeping the humidity at 40%.

    Chemdawg: I love this plant. I've grown her around 4 times.

    WEEK 6 FLOWER, wk 7 12/12:

    I'm watching stigmas turn yellow, then brown; the buds are frosting and thickening up nicely. The LED box plants--Jack Herer, C99 and Badazz Kush, will be ready to harvest before the HID box. They look like they're about a week ahead of the HID girls, whose stigmas are still almost all wnite.

    This is week 7 of the nute schedule; I saw the slightest amount of nute burn on older leaves last week, so I began lowering the nutes this week. The feeding schedule also lowers some of the nutes, but I lowered a bit more. I kept the carbohydrate supplement up. Everything smells nice. The reservoirs smell nice and rooty.

    Here's the LED box last week and this week:

    starting week 8 of flower (wk 9 12/12):

    HID box today and 2 wks ago:

    I see significant bud growth, and these babies have around two weeks to go. I'm hoping to see the buds continue to spiral around the cola tops and fill them in. Still lots of white pistils and some are turning golden brown.



    Here is LED today:

    This box is closer to harvest. C99 (front right above) should be ready sometime this week; almost all the pistils have browned and turned inward, but I'm waiting to see fewer clear triches. She is indeed short and squat, but she's like solid bud, and thick!!

    Jack Herer (rear left) is a small plant, but buds look nice, and BadAzz Kush (right rear) is a monster. I've got humidity down to 35-40%.

    Spring is upon us; a Spring harvest sounds like a very good thing to me!
