    4TH YEAR GROW atu

    These girls germinated at the beginning of August, and are doing quite well. The new grow box shows much more aggressive growth than the old box, although all plants with the exception of White Widow are the same age, with WW a week younger. I completed 3 years of growing at the end of July, so this is my first senior year grow. My goal: MORE POT AT HARVEST TIME!!!!!

    Here are the big girls: Skunk #1, Cookies Kush, and Blue OG.

        R ock W ool ... You know....it's the stuff I can never get to neutral when I pH adjust the chit... yet seems to provide a perfect media for slime to grow on when my seedlings and clones are most vulnerable.

        HappyDaze Duh!!! I should have known, but my mind was on rapid rooters. On my first couple of grows I used the RW cubes that came with my grow box. I would put these on top of them: https://www.ebay.com/itm/323625317738
        They work great to keep the light off the RW.

        As for "rubbery things," if you mean the RRs, I love them. I surround them with LECA in the net pot and the roots have an easy time of descending.

      thank you ATU I must of missed something or forgot you got a new grow box , I dont know how you could do it but if you could figure a way to manifold them it would increase your yield ,the average size of the woods girls is 3x3x5 I could of kept them shorter if I needed to,just a thought ,

        OJH, I top and train because I think manifolding would be a waste of my time in my limited space.

      Subbed from the start! Looking forward to seeing this one. What type of training will you use?

        I topped most of them last week, and I'm just LSTing. You'll see it better when they get a little more length to the branches.

        MANY years ago.. when pot was $20.00 an ounce we had gotten together with 2 friends and bought 1 pound. SUDDENLY, we had lots of friends. When the last few ounces finally got rationed, there were 4 of us.

        Frankly, I have the same numbers today counted on one hand and THAT'S the way I like it

      Girls are doing well; I removed White Widow from box 1 yesterday and decided to let the other two continue to veg for much longer than box 2, where the plants are growing much bigger.

      Here's box 1 with C99 and Jack Herrer, who's lagged a bit; her growth has been slow, as if there were pH or some kind of root issue--although the roots look fine. I also didn't get great results with the first Jack H I grew: she was on the small side. So I'm kinda wondering about the seeds.

      I removed the White Widow because she was runty and never going to really develop into a strong grower. I realized it would be much better to give all the space to C99, who turned into a beast on the last grow. I've also had issues with some of the other WWs I've grown with weak growth and small plants. This isn't the first WW I've euthanized.

      Box 2 is great, the plants are all strong. LST in progress, although training in these boxes goes much better and easier after I've flipped them to 12/12. Also because I barely do any defoliation during veg so they grow fast.

      Box 2 defoled, lst'd and in 24 hours' darkness

      These girls have collaborated with me perfectly: they indicated clearly that they were ready for the switch. So this memorial morning I defoled, gently bent stems back n forth, and did one last lst on them. Now they are chilling in the darkness till tomorrow morning.

      Old box has maybe a week more in veg mode. Jack H. is still the smallest and slowest, but developing nicely and she seems to like having her stems bent. So does C99, who will explode soon:

      Old box on Aug 29 and Sept 7: they are accepting the training.

      On this 4th year grow I'm feeling like a cool senior, about to graduate. Everything seems easier and so far, nothing has worried me. I may be seeing some weird genetics in the old box; I will write to GreenHouse seeds, because my first Jack H. seed was a bit sluggish as well. See if other people have had problems with their seeds.

        s62 Some folks like to vape CBD powder or slab; I tried it a couple of times, but it didn't do anything for me. I'd rather grow a cannabis plant with a good % of CBD in it and get the most natural form of it. But I do keep some slab infused in Everclear which I use to dilute the THC-heavy tincture I make for some folks who don't want the high, but want the full spectrum. I personally love the THC tincture high early in the morning: it's awesome on an empty stomach.

        The CBD craze has a lot of folks fooled--again, we're talking about greedy entrepreneurs eager to jump on the Cannabis money wagon. A lot of folks are selling hemp-derived CBD which isn't really medicinal at all.

        CBD should be Cannabis plant-derived--not hemp plant-derived. In Cannabis you get all the cannabinoids and terpenes working together to create medicinal synergy: they work better together than they do isolated. You can get a plant with a minimal amount of THC in it, but it's still part of the full spectrum of chemicals that will make the CBD work better.

        https://www.projectcbd.org This is the best website for truthful information about CBD. There are probably hundreds of bullshit hemp CBD sellers out there who don't want you to know the facts.

          LOL dang lady you do know your weed and I learn a lot from you and this great forum. I must say I for our family we do enjoy a good blended bowl of homegrown cannabis. Your plants look great alltatup those branches are healthy buggers. We are getting low on our stash here at our house, so i'm going to the dispensary in town later today they have " Crown Royal" been wanting to try that. I think they want $ 14 gram. I don't like buying it at all but for trying a strain before I get the seeds.
          We have hemp farms around our area to me it smells like flowing weed perhaps abit more skunky. We are traveling to the Rogue River going salmon fishing with my brothers been doing it 30+yrs, camp a couple days kinda why i'm buying the Crown Royal it's my brothers fav. nite cap but there are dozens of farms where were going and it's prime time for smelling flowers so i'll try and pay attention LOL. I probley got 3wks till one plant can be harvested another month for cure at least but i'm gonna have to do some quick dry just so we don't have to shell out $$ course my neighbors will oblige if I asked to borrow a jar. Man it's a beautiful day here just fall at it's finest. Take care

        WEEKEND UPDATE:

        New box is at day 12 of 12/12. Barney's Cookies Kush is right rear, and she's the tallest and lankiest, with the most Sativa appearance. This plant is described by BF as short and squat: not a chance. She has the largest internodes of the 3 plants.


        Click image for larger version  Name:	new sep14 3.JPG Views:	1 Size:	1.74 MB ID:	337103

        Budlets are appearing, surrounded by single leaves, just as described in the literature. I never really observed or took a picture of this before, but it's pretty cool:
        Click image for larger version  Name:	bluog bud.JPG Views:	1 Size:	20.2 KB ID:	337104
        I remove sweating leaves daily and make sure there's good air circulation. Humidity is staying 49-50% in the room.

        I switched the Old Box to flower last weekend, so this is day 6 of 12/12 for C99 and Jack H;


        Click image for larger version  Name:	old sep14 2.JPG Views:	1 Size:	1.53 MB ID:	337105
        I'm keeping my fingers crossed that little Jack will do some serious stretching and get into the phat bud-producing light zone. I've also decided that from now on, I will germinate extra seeds so as to make sure that I have three strong plants per box. However, I have no doubt that C99 will do a good job of filling the box. Like she did on the last grow, she has lots of colas surging up from the bottom, most of which will get into the light. She has grown a lot in 6 days.

          alltatup I think you may be telling porkies..if I was pushed to make an assumption I`d say your house was spotless, white and pastel walls and skirting including burnt orange, airy with hanging Mexican rugs, cacti and a very homely sofa plus a well stocked wine rack and guacamole in the fridge and original Australian aboriginal art tastefully displayed. Plus, mega soft triple layer toilet paper and incense or essential oils wafting discreetly in the background as chimes...well...chime as sea tainted air softly caresses them whilst in the distance Flamenco can be heard being played by a youthfully talented neighbour. As you can tell I am gifted with the Far Seeing Eye which is quite an achievement considering I`m very short sighted
