    2020-11-15: Week 12 - Week 6 of flowering completed

    Getting closer! No issues with watering this week - have stayed on top of it.

    Am beginning to see hints of light issues with the top leaves nearest the lights - height is maxed out in there, and I have no room to bring the lights up further. I've been bending the main colas outward as I can to try and keep them out of the brightest areas in the centre - leaving that to the fan leaves further down the plant.

    Starting to see the buds put on weight which is really nice! Also seeing the very first of the red pistils starting to happen. Not nearly mature yet, but there is four more weeks to go for that to happen in.

    Humidity is between 40% to 60%, with the high end of that right after watering and temperature is 20c-23c for now. Not a lot of "cool nights", but as neither of these strains are known for bringing out color in cooler temps, I'm not sure I need to force that at all. They seem happy enough with the temperatures as they are now.

      2020-11-22: Week 13 - Week 7 of flowering completed

      So, last week I found a hacky way to get my lights just a little higher up. The plants seem to be doing better now that there's a more appropriate 8-10" from the LEDs, but there was a little bit of light burn damage that happened before I figured that out. So far, it doesn't seem to be causing any additional issues, but I noticed at least one cola that's putting on more growth now that the source of stress is removed.

      Colas are putting on weight really nicely right now, but I am not seeing many, if any, red pistils yet. So this grow could take a little longer to mature than I thought. However, if the plants keep putting on weight like this, then that may not be a bad thing - I could get a pretty sizeable yield if nothing goes wrong.

      I keep flashing back to my Blue Mystic grow with this - it too had really good colas and was dealing with lightburn. But in that case I didn't deal with the light-burn in time and some sugar leaves died. Also the humidity was higher 60-70% rather than the 40-60% I am seeing right now. I think those two things combined to lead to the mold issues I had with the Blue Mystic, which cost me a lot of my bud in the end. I think I'm just a step ahead of those problems this time, and plants willing, I might just get to the end with some pristine, hefty colas and no fungus amongus!

      Fingers crossed!

        So, still not a lot of red pistils yet. Buds are putting on some weight as we go, too.

        Not a lot to report this week, just keeping up with watering and feeding as usual. Not changing the formula there, have reached about as concentrated a nutrient solution as I am willing to give these plants, and am spacing that out with pH'd water between feedings. Given the size of the plants, they need to be watered at least every four days now.

        Humidity control has been good, this week has been between 42% and 54% humidity overall - so that should help in keeping mold from getting into this grow like it did the mystic. Given that I'm at week 8 since 12-12 now, I find myself wondering how much longer I am going to need to mature things. I think I may need another four weeks. So I won't be making an x-mas gifts out of my trim here, I think. But that's okay, if my friends want stuff they know how to ask.

          So, we are still growing! I had hoped that next week would be harvest week, but that seems unlikely. Still a great deal of white pistils on the buds. But MAN do I have a really good set of chonky colas!

          Humidity has been pretty well managed, topping out at 55% or so, more typically 45-50%. This week the plants have gotten 2 gallons of pH'd water and 1 gallon of feed mix. So far, so good. No signs of mold at present, and I hope it stays that way!

            2020-12-13: Week 16 - Week 10 of flowering completed

            Grow is chugging along. There is starting to be a gap in maturity between the GSC and the Durban Poison. The GSC is starting to show more and more red pistils and looks to be moving towards maturity. The Durban is still showing a lot of white.

            Humidity has been pretty good, had one spike up to 55% that happened when I had recently watered AND was using the room outside the grow tent as a gym as intended. (Apparently my sweating will boost the RH. This seems like a predictable thing).

            Have been interspersing pH'd water between feedings and am not seeing any signs of underfeeding, so that's nice. Just need to keep the grow going until the plants mature. The Sativa in them seems to be requiring more grow time.

            BUT! These may be some of the biggest, nicest colas I've grown, and so far no signs of mold. Haven't had any dead sugar leaves for mold to eat yet, so that helps!

              You gotta be happy with this grow it's so nice to have carefree plants/healthy and just watch the changes. We are sure having fun with our harvest of GSC although it gives us the munchies something terrible LOL. That Durban i grew took 13wks in flower but man she was the bomb. Huge yield.

              16 weeks for the durban sounds about right to me, honestly. This might be the biggest yield I get out of single plants yet? It helps I put both lights in the same tent, so it won't be a true apples-to-apples comparison that way, but I'll take it regardless - means I got more green out of each seed, really.

              This has been a fairly good grow, all things considered. A few blips here and there, but no big catastrophes to my knowledge.

            2020-12-20: Week 17 - Week 11 of flowering completed


            Chugging along. Had one moment where I may have watered the GSC a little too late - the poor plant got a little droopy. But it perked back up quickly and didn't loose any leaves so doesn't seem like I did much harm.

            The GSC is at about 50% curled pistils and a quick trichrome check shows a mix of clear and cloudy trichromes with hints of amber.
            The Durban is at about 20% or less curled pistils and a trichrome check shows mostly clear with a few cloudy and no amber.

            Both have nice, chonky colas, and no visibly dead sugar leaves and no signs of mold.

            Ambient humidity this week has been around 40-49% or so.

            Just a tent shot for today - it's been a long day leading up the the week of Christmas, and not the easiest year, so I may be starting to phone things in a little bit. Ah well, will get back on the horse after a bit of rest.

                Skipped a week's update. Still Growing, the GSC is getting really close - I think it might be time to go into a flush for a week. I suspect the durban may need another 2 weeks or so, so maybe one more feeding for that plant.

                Having them mature on different weeks may be a plus: This may split up the necessary trimming work into smaller chunks. Also, with the colas being fewer and larger in number, I expect there will be less trimming to do in the first place.

                Looking forward to this!
