      Thanks Bob, excited to smoke this and to get my staggered monthly harvest going. Slowly dialing in my system and ever thankful for the sufferance of these plants

      Ive been wondering about that final flush before harvest and what your suppose to use.

      I use plain Ph'd water, but on the first flush I use a little bit of sledgehammer flush agent.

      As to days in flower, it's day 64 today, she was really into flowering by day 30 or so, so 34 days of flowering.
      She may do 8 or 9 more days, so 42-3 days flowering in total. She's been at 20 hr light a day throughout.

    Everyone has their own fush ritual to include length of time and what they flush with, i have tried a few methods but found my preferred way thato works for me. Only thing i change now is the length depending on pot size which is just common sense, my 1 gallon pots get shorter flushing times than 2 and 3 gal pots.
    Perpetual setup!

      Hi All, busy and "long" week, but finally got to an update. The Bubble is right in the zone and I plan to chop her on Saturday. My first Sour Bubbly seed "failed to launch" but to be fair it was a small green and "free" seed. 2nd time around a plumper browner seed came through. It's been dry here which the flowering plants should benefit from but I worry for the vegg'ing sisters. Re-jigged tent a bit to create a linear veg, mid flower, late flower progression. Hopefully I can spot add some humidity on one side of the tent while keeping the late flower end dry... we'll see.

      3-25-17 DAY 57 | 30 Trained and trimmed Mystic#2, gave her Gen I nutes w. 5ml CalMag @ 6,0 Ph (run off 6.0). Rotated Mystic and Bubble. 39%/60% 75/91

      3-27-17 DAY 59 | 32 Small Gen III feed for Bubble @ 6.2 Ph. She's slowing down drinking and is slipping into senescence. 25%/57% 73/86

      3-28-17 DAY 60 | 33 Mystic dried out a bit too much fed leftover Gen I nutes. Leftover Veg I nutes to Mystic #2. Made Gen III nutes for Bubble 5.9 Ph (run off 5.2 Ph). Gave up on Sour Bubbly seed and pulled a second one from the fridge to warm up to room temp. 16%/54% 73/90

      3-29-17 DAY 61 | 34 Set Sour Bubbly #2 seed to soak 6.2 Ph water (no rhizo this time). Made Gen II nutes for Mystic (with the P/K pop) 5.7Ph. Maybe this was too early but I'm dialing in and you can see the Blue Mystic and Bubblelicous have had very different growth cycles. 16%/58% 75/90

      3-30-17 DAY 62 | 35 Sour Bubbly #2 seed put in re-hydrated jiffy peat pellet under CFLs (going back to tried and true methods). Made Veg II with 5ml CalMag for Mystic #2 6.0 Ph. 25%/55% 75/88

      3-31-17 DAY 63 | 36 Big trim for the Mystic in a.m., in evening fed leftover Gen II to Mystic 6.2 Ph, Gen III to Bubble 5.5 Ph. 16%/54% 73/86

      4-1-17 DAY 64 | 37 Made some plain 5.8Ph water for the seed, been misting several times a day to aid humidity. Added cut off water bottle over the jiffy pellet for more humidity. Put pepper cage on Mystic #2

      4-2-17 DAY 65 | 37 Flushed Bubble, Plain water at 6.0 Ph with 2.5ml of Sledgehammer flush agent, run-off was 5.2Ph. Made Gen II nutes 6.1 Ph for Mystic, she seems to be handling the extra nutes fine but I worry I may have been a tad early moving to Gen II. 34%/61% 73/86

      4-3-17 DAY 66 | 38 | 1 Sour Bubbly #2 popped overnight Stripped netting off peat pellet and put it into pot I'd previously prepared for Sour Bubbly #1. Leftover nutes to Mystic #2 34%/62% 72/86

      Very excited for my new plant and my imminent harvest. Bubbly#2 is still under CFLs until I pull the Bubble, then all the plants shift spots and I'm actually gonna break down my CFL grow area.

          Thanks Vapo ... if my plan works then I should be harvesting once a month or so from here on out

          From Left to right, the lights are a 90W Flower Boost UFO from Dorm Grow, Advanced Platinum P300, and on the veg side of the tent, $60 worth of Roleandro 300W full spectrum.

          The P300 is by far the better light. I wish I could justify buying a 2nd one and using it at half strength for veg but alas. In veg the P300 gives super tight node spacing and hungry growth, in flowering fat buds

          Niiiiice light, I'm saving for CMH dude but going to keep led as well when I get it, did you see Tika setup.....I think she has like 3 p600......so cool......harvesting once a month would be the mutt's nut's lol

          We need that monthly harvest bad, our dispensary habit has bloomed again recently and I just can't afford that supposedly "fancy" dispensary weed!
          Yeah Tika's set-up is drool worthy for sure. If I ever do a bigger op T8s for veg and P600s for flower are about perfect.

        Great update and excellent pics of some lovely plants! 🌿 Bubble has gained good weight on those buds...harvesting should a pleasure! And Mystic is on its way to giving you even more sweets! πŸ˜‰Bet you're liking this staggered system!

          Hey Rockman, thanks, I hope the Mystic may rival your recent haul if she fattens up properly. I am excited to get the perpetual harvest going but I can already see the challenges that different strain's lifecycle's present. I started the Mystic at the same time as the Bubble but the Mystic may even go a full month longer than the bubble. This said, as long as I start a new seed with each pre-harvest flush I should be able to stay somewhat in the ballpark.

        #82
        Trichome watching on the Bubble. 2nd flush today she's only got 3 more days. A few ambers popping up on the upper buds so I'm reassured that Saturday is the day for the chop

          Great grow and pictures. I believe you mentioned using the Z Orb for the trichome pictures. I use the same and find it tough to keep the camera steady. How do you stabilize the camera for your pics? I have a method but it's not great and still tough to get good shots

          HI Sheesh, it's a bit precarious to be frank ... the cable is kinda short and my shot taking button doesn't work well. I do take the plant out of the tent to take trich shots. For me, I find it helps to watch the screen instead of the camera, then I just try a freeze when I get a good shot and hit the mousepad on the laptop to take a shot.
          What's your approach?

          duct tape and bubble gum, sort of. I took a cardboard paper towel tube and taped the orb to the end. I adjusted the ord to max zoom first (you won't be able to get to the adjusting ring). I bent the paper towel tube about 180 degrees and steady the contraption on my scrog frame. I will try attaching a photo of the results below.

          Go on and rub it in Vapo, you know I've 3 more weeks before I can actually smoke it

          I can do the patience of the grow ... but waiting for the dry and cure kills me every time. I'll probably wont be smoking the Bubble until I'm harvesting the Mystic.

          Those look lovely Sheesh, the Zorb has a really shallow depth of field so you can often only get one "plane" of a shot in focus.
          Be sure you get some pics of the trichs on the buds themselves as well as the sugar leaves

        Harvest Day for the lovely Bubble.
        Off for the weekend but she's chopped trimmed and hung. Nice thick nugs, at least 1-2 oz I hope ... fingers crossed.
        I won't weigh until it's dried. Did a final 3rd flush last night so she was chopped wet after about 18hrs of dark. hopefully this will slow her dry time down a bit, it's often pretty dry here
