    Day 78! Quite a bit of change since my last post. I did my usual water change last night, I will do some defol today after work. The bloody skunk is clearly furthest along and is looking damn good. The blueberry is looking real nice, I think it's going to produce some real fat buds. The strawberry Cheesecake, my smallest plant, is is following close behind the blueberry and starting to get frosty. Now the daiquiri lime, she is still taking her damn time but I don't have to look so hard to see pistils anymore. Starting to get some big hairs, hoping she's going to explode soon. Bunch of drinkers though, the DL is getting an gallon added every Sunday but honestly it could probably use more come this Sunday. The rest of the plants haven't needed me to add but this week I may have to.

      Such a beautiful plant bloody skunk she's stunner. Slow poke lime ehh? Course i've never down DWC so i guess she's getting the flower food also? She looks like she's trying to dang she maybe a monster and need super crop down the line? Lets hope so

      I really like this grow, thanks for posting!! Glad to hear that Miss Daiquiri Lime has now got some drinking buddies She ain't in a hurry for anyone but it looks like she will be the biggest yielder once she gets her sh@t together. Going to be worth the wait. Yes! That bloody skunk is looking damn good. Really red eh. You must have the skills, so many varieties in there and they all look great. Good luck!

      SoOrbudgal slow poke is right! Maybe slow and steady wins the race!! Yes, you are correct, they are all getting flower food. The DL is definitely going to be a good size plant, supercropping is a strong possiblity for sure.

      JeffInCanada thanks it's been my pleasure to post this. Miss DL is definitely going to yield some good weight, I'm really excited to see how she looks when the buds start forming. Thanks for your kind words, I'm certainly still honing my skills in this whole growing thing but I like to think I've put in some good effort! Lots of reading on the GWE site and plenty of lurking on the forum. Still learning everyday!

    Some defol tonight. Strawberry cheesecake and Daiquiri Lime got it the most, Blueberry and Bloody Skunk I pretty much got most of the long fan leaves so I think I'll be able to let them be the rest of the grow(for the most part). DL looking droopy but she should perk up 🙂

        Well I suppose if you have the time you can ride it out and see if she's just a late bloomer. Or if you think that it could possiblly be regular and not an auto, you could change your lighting schedule to 12/12 but you could possibly sacrifice yield if you have other auto plants that share the same grow space.

        Yeah I have 3 photo clones that's had only 2nd mainline top, 2 baby seedlings photo and then 4 autos that's mid flower. So I cant flip yet.
        I'll tell ya what when I do she is going to be huge.

      Day 86, water change on Thursday along with some defol mostly on the DL and SC. I bent most of the tops down on the DL, shes a monstah! Bloody skunk is getting close to finishing, I'd say it thinks it's autumn judging by the looks of it and the trics are about half cloudy maybe more. She still has a little time but not much

        Love that bloody skunk look. What are your temps for lights on vs lights off?
        There are 3 things you must check everyday when growing in hydro:
        1) Water level (How much h2o is she drinking in 24hrs)
        2) pH level (change over 24hrs)
        3) ppm/EC level (How much food is she eating in 24hrs)

          Nice...that bloody skunk is incredible. All of the plants look real good. At least they all won't be done at once.

          JeffInCanada that is one thing I'm very happy about, I'll definitely be harvesting one plant at a time. Trimming is a lot of work!

        Day 91! Just re-read my last post, my days all seem to blur as of lately. I said I did a water change on thursday last week but idk why I would have, pretty sure it was Wednesday. Anywayssss....

        Bloody skunk is definitely getting close, I've been checking trics and I'd say more than half cloudy for sure but def no amber. She's gonna be done soon though! Blueberry and strawberry cheesecake are just doing their thing, Blueberry being much closer to finishing and she looks mighty fine. Now, Long Legs Lime, Miss Daiquiri Lime, has a serious drinking problem. Over 4 gallons a week now, I gave her two on Sunday and she was damn near empty today. I've been feeding her extra too because she seems to like it. When I top off, I have been giving nutes as well. Last grow I was only topping off with plain pHed water and I definitely had some pH fluctuation issues. Other than that, she is getting hairy and pretty soon she's gonna bulk up like the others, except fatter!

        Made a small mod to one of my buckets. I already had eye hooks screwed into the lids for tying down, I added a piece of brake line (I'm an auto tech) through the eyelets as a ring. Now I have the ability to tie down to anywhere around the lid not just those few points.

          JeffInCanada thanks! That's the Blueberry and she is still fattening up! Not too far behind the Bloody Skunk but she still has some time. I've never been to Canada so I think you're safe haha.

          I like the ring idea. Could easily be adapted to any type pot including my cloth ones. i want to try hydro at some point but not till I get my hidden 64 sf bloom room in my tall crawl space built this fall. Great looking grow and a progressive harvest. Well done!

          TOKABIGONE thanks! Yeah a ring can definitely be utilized on any pot as long as you have a way to secure it. I wish I did it earlier in the grow on all of the plants but that's ok, there's always next time! I do wish I had a little more space to play, 64sqft sounds nice!!

        NickyChicks That's where i am at with my wedding cake she's nearing her overtime grow. Canada was the first " stamp " on our passports LOL also the most costly RV trip we ever had. Replaced 4 back tires on our RV on that trip LOL now i can laugh.

          Just what you want to do while you're in a trip, drop a bunch of $$ tires lol. I looked for a wedding cake auto to grow but couldn't find one that was in stock or reasonably priced, got auto Wedding Cheescake instead. Was hoping to grow it during this run but the seeds showed up later than anticipated. I'm getting married in less than 2 months so it would've been fitting, I guess I'll have to save it for after the wedding lolol

          Day 98! The Bloody Skunk is soooo close to being finished. Honestly I think I can chop her but I'm going to try and be patient. Possibly this weekend but if not definitely the following week or weekend. Daiquiri Lime is really starting to form some nice buds. I spent a very long time, couple of hours doing some much needed defol to the DL and also to Strawberry Cheesecake. I added the same ring around the lid on the SC as I did to the DL, it spread her out and let those budsites really get exposed. I used to get so nervous taking the sheers to a plant, not anymore, IMO the results of from it speak for themselves. Tried to get some nice pics, especially a nice sea of purple!

            Oh man! they all look so good. The Bloody Skunk (decided against using BS) looks so sweet. Like red velvet cake that was popular a few years ago. You're right, it looks very close to done. They all look so healthy. You've kept them very happy. Enjoy it now girls...the end is nigh.

          Day 105! I'm not going to say I'm getting impatient but they look so good I just wanna smoke them! Bloody skunk is ready, trics are mature and she will see the axe this weekend. Honestly not sure who is going to finish up next. I thought it was going to be Blueberry but she just keeps fattening up, not complaining because she really is loaded with big fat buds. Going to keep checking trics. Strawberry Cheesecake seems to be coming to a halt and almost all of her hairs have curled in and turned color. Again just going to check trics from here on out. Lastly, Daiquiri Lime. The smell of lime is very distinct and it's so nice! Really just started to notice it on Monday when she got another time consuming haircut. I'm excited for all of these girls to finish but I can't wait to see how Miss Lime looks in the end.
