    First grow ever using photo seeds I ordered online

    Bought a new tent for the seeds I ordered online so I’m gona fill the thing up!

    Back left is one of my clones under a screen at 7wks veg in a 7 gallon pot (had to grow at least one plant I knew I could count on)

    Back center and right are both Dos Si Dos 33 from Barney’s Farm mainlined at 7wks veg in 7 gallon pots

    The two upfront on the outsides are Blue Cheese from Barney’s Farm at 7wks veg in 5 gallon pots. They both sprouted funky as hell! One had 3 leaves and the other 5 off the start. Growth was extremely slow and weird so I almost tossed them but at week 4 they showed some signs of normalcy and began growing in a mainline type form all on their own. I have done no topping or training with them and now I’m really happy I stuck with them because they’re low and stout with colas coming up all over! Should be some prime buds

    Finally front and center is the star pupil. It’s a California Dream from ILGM at 2wks veg in a 1 gallon pot that I just moved up to a 5 gallon pot. I ordered this one late and was trying to let it go longer but I’ve had to give my clone too many haircuts and she’s ready to go! Since this baby is growing so fast, at 2wks veg her fan leaves are f’n massive, she’s already been topped to the 4th node (I left the 3rd and removed everything below the 3rd) and her roots had already filled a 1 gallon pot, I went ahead and moved her up to a 5 gallon pot. Tomorrow I’ll LST her down

    Going to give the baby a week to recover then I’m switching to flower under a 600W HPS. I expect this tent to look like a damn rain forest in no time.

        Appreciate the kind words! One of the Blue Cheese had some discoloration but I don’t think it was a deficiency, those two sprouts just came up all deformed and crazy looking. All new growth looking healthy and somewhat normal now

          Just got the Cali Dream down. Since she’s 6wks younger than the other plants she’ll be flowering with this will be all I’ll do to her other than attach the colas to the ring once they get tall enough.

          I also did some training to one of the Blue Cheese but checkout the crazy growth. Other than what I did just now it’s all natural. Hasn’t even been topped.

          The last pic I took because I see a lot of YouTube videos with people poking holes in their smart pots in order to anchor plant ties. I’ve always used a safety pin 🤷🏻‍♂️

            Took this last night, two days after switching to flower and the stretch has begun. Showing a slight magnesium deficiency. Up to this point I’ve only fed nutes once, right after defoliation before switching to 12/12.

              Just into week two. Seem to have everything dialed back in and all the girls are looking happy. The Dos Si Dos in the back really took off, every cola has grown 8-10” in the last week. Going to stop pulling them down and let them grow from here on out. My clone on the left is trying to take over that side of the tent. I’m just hoping they don’t all ripen at the same time. Then again, I may be trimming for a month

                You’d think so but nope, doesn’t bother them at all. If you wanted a perfect looking bud to show off I’d hand trim it but for personal use it’s great

              CannaBrush huh i'm going to check it out thanks bboyfromwayback for the tip. alltatup sister I just rest them and massage soak in the warmest water I can tolerate. When croptober comes around we take lots of time and no more plants over 8ft. they are just too much when you got several finishing within days of each other.

                bboyfromwayback Ooooooh, I see, so it's not for wet trimming. I think I'm understand better how it works. Thanks: good to know!!!

                No they have to be good and dry. First time I tried it using a branch I cut off to sample and the leaves were still dampish and I had to hand trim. Two days later I was able to trim each branch in about 2min! Gave each bud a good brushing (down strokes) then hand trimmed anything leftover which wasn’t much, small stem here and there. Your friend will enjoy it. I’m no salesman, I just know how bad trimming can be and I don’t have arthritis so that has to be much worse. But yea, I did 2 plants in a 50min TWD episode, did the other 4 the next night in no time. My eyes didn’t even get tired

                bboyfromwayback Wow, 25 bucks!! I was thinking my friend would have to spend a few hundred for a decent trimmer, but this is the easiest of all. And their explanations make perfect sense: the brush "grabs the outer leaf, which is quite dry, and pulls it right off. It looks awesome. I'm impressed with the technology, tho the brush should cost 10 bucks... But my friend will gladly pay 25. I love trimming a lot, but I may have to get one, too.

              These two Blue Cheese from Barney’s Farm started off deformed and sad looking . One sprouted with 3 leaves, the other kinda had 1.5 leaves and something else I’m not sure what growing from it. I should’ve took pics but I’m not real savvy in the picture department. Anyways I stuck with them because I paid money for the goofy lookin mf’ers and after 6wks of hardly any growth they kinda manifolded themselves for me. Other than pulling the colas apart to spread them out I haven’t done anything to either plant. They haven’t been topped once and one has 12 decent colas starting to get budlets all over them and the other has 8. I guess the moral of the story is even a ugly runt can grow up to be a pretty thing with proper tlc

                They may grow up and surprise you 😁

              I quadlined on dos si dos and mainlined the other just to experiment. Other than that they’ve been grown the exact same. Since switching to 12/12 the mainline has grown a lot taller but the quadline has gotten a lot bushier. I defoliated right before and the mainlined one is making me wish I’d taken less off. Those long, stretchy colas are looking bare now 🤷🏻‍♂️ At this point I’m betting the quadline produces more but we’ll see

                17 days after the switch and all the plants have settled in except the Dos Si Dos. Both plants are still getting noticeably taller everyday. Next time I grow this strain I won’t defoliate nearly as much until after they’ve finished growing tall.

                  I got a long neck 1gal. water jug to reach way back there works great. Can wait to see them standing at attention in the net. They are going to be pretty thick in there, you got this

                  Thanks! It’s been work lol I haven’t grown more than 2-3 at a time in years and I’m relearning why! I have this tent plus another that has 4 autos 7wks old and a banana kush I’m vegging with them 😵 luckily my wife tends to the moms we have

                They’ve all settled in and haven’t grown much taller the last couple of days. I built them all up to the same height under the light, placed screen and turned the dial up to 100%.
