    4th grow - Bubba Kush, 3 Bears, Diesel, Amnesia XXL

    COMPLETED RUNDOWN:

    BUBBA KUSH: 2/24-5/21 (86 days)
    DRY WEIGHT: 144g (5.14oz)

    AMNESIA XXL: 3/27-6-19 (84 days)
    DRY WEIGHT: 100g (3.57oz)

    TOTAL WEIGHT: 244g (8.71oz)


    Hello again everyone! Glad to officially start my 4th grow journal!

    Here's everything you need to know!

    All autos

    Bubba Kush by Dinafem
    3 Bears by Mephisto
    Diesel
    Amnesia XXL by Dinafem

    Still using the 4 55w autocobs (electric bill is $20 more than without growing...I can't recommend these enough!)

    Nutrients:

    Great White
    Silica blast
    Calmag
    Epsom salt (just a dash!)
    Floranova Bloom (using the Lucas formula)
    Rock resinator (flower enhancer)

    Medium- Coco

    Methods:

    Defoliation
    Mainlining

    Since my grows are becoming staggered, here's where my plants are at right now:

    Bubba Kush - 34
    Diesel - 17
    3 Bears - 3
    Amnesia XXL - 3

    The Bubba has started spitting hairs already and is looking phenomenal!

    The diesel just got snipped for the mainline a few days ago. She's a little droopy (probably because of overwatering or giving nutes at a bit too strong of level), but I expect a full recovery.

    The other 2 haven't sprouted yet, but that's to be expected. It's always about day 4 they come up for me.

    I love this hobby! I've saved so much money by growing for myself, and I get to smoke as much as I want without worry of having to conserve. A great thanks to all the people who have helped me to be the grower I am today! June will be a year for me growing, and consequently will be right around the time this journal gets wrapped up.

    Happy growing everyone!

      Thanks Canuck! I love how the Bubba is turning out! It's a far better mainline than my previous ones!

      I'm really excited for these strains! I've smoked bubba kush a while ago, but the rest of them are all new to me!

      Hey everyone! Today is day:

      37 for Bubba Kush
      20 for Diesel
      6 for 3 Bears and Amnesia XXL

      The Bubba is looking really good. I'll probably start adding the Rock resinator sometime next week.

      The Diesel got a little droopy, but has perked up a little since then. I removed everything but the second node to start the mainline, and just started LST on it today. This same method was also used on the Bubba Kush.

      The 3 Bears have popped out of the rapid rooter, but the amnesia has not. It's very close though.

      Have a great week everyone!

        44 for the Bubba Kush
        27 for the Diesel
        13 for 3 Bears and Amnesia XXL

        The Bubba Kush is looking great! I just started adding the Rock resinator to it, so I'm hoping to see some amazing nugs in the future.

        The Diesel is looking good as well. I pulled out all my green tie downs and switched to electrical wire after watching some of Green75 's videos on youtube. It makes it a lot easier to train more precisely.

        The 3 Bears and Amnesia XXL are doing good. The 3 Bears needs to be supported because it's a bit lanky, but all is well other than that!

        Have a great week everyone!

            Thanks Green! I appreciate all the videos and journals you have posted. I never would have tried mainlining had I not seen them.

            I do have a question about your mainline technique. You say in your posts that you top at the third node. Do you mean you only leave the third node (not counting the cotyledons of course), or do you take off the third node, leaving only the second node?

            The first time I did it I left the third node. Yield was decent for me (2 O's). The next time I did it on the same strain, I left the 2nd node on. I got pretty much the same weight (1g difference). I feel like I got bigger nugs with the third node kept on, but there weren't many nugs. With the second node left on I had quite a bit more branches.

            The bubba kush that is currently growing had the second node on. Its looking great!

            Thanks again man!

          Hey everyone! Today is day

          51 for the Bubba Kush
          34 for the Diesel
          20 for 3 Bears and Amnesia XXL

          The Bubba is out of control (in a good way!) Tons of branches and little nuglets starting on all of them. She is a beast to be reckoned with, and I think she might get close to my blue dreams weight, based on what I'm seeing. I don't think it will surpass it, but it might be close to the same. She has been an absolute pleasure to grow so far!

          The Diesel had me worried. I didn't see any hairs at all yesterday, and most autos have started showing signs of flowering at this point. I was afraid I would have another pineapple Express on my hands, but I did spot a couple hairs today, so that's a great sign!

          The 3 Bears and Amnesia XXL are looking really good, and both have been setup for a mainline. This time I'll get to use the wires instead of the tie downs right from the start. Hopefully they will be better trained than the diesel is lol.



          I have been on seedsmans website today looking at the sales for 420. I don't think I will be taking full advantage of their sales, but I did want to get a few more strains. I think it would be cool to grow gorilla glue and gorilla glue #4 at the same time to note the difference between the 2. I also wouldn't mind trying another plant from the red family. The devil cream auto looks pretty good and has some good reviews.

          I will say their website is running really slow because of all the people on for the sale I imagine.

          ​​​​​​​Have a great week everyone! ​

          Hey everyone! Today is day:

          58 for Bubba Kush
          41 for Diesel
          27 for 3 Bears and Amnesia XXL

          The Bubba Kush is looking pretty good and the buds are starting to fill out a little bit. Some leaves do look a little pale, but she's in fine health other than that!

          The Diesel has about 4 hairs total that I can see. It's like it wants to flower but it doesn't or it can't for some reason. I'm hoping it will and that it won't end up like the pineapple Express.

          I ended up taking the main fan leaves off of the 3 Bears and Amnesia XXL a bit too early, so I definitely slowed their growth this week. They do seem to be back on track now.

                This pic is showing 2 of the 4 hairs I see on the diesel lol. I'm hoping to see more and eventually see buds on them, but since the diesel is 41 days in already, I'm feeling I may have a dud on my hands in terms of autos lol.

                Yes, I'm a pretty heavy defoliator, but the leaves just keep coming lol. I don't like the idea of mold so I try to take a lot of leaves off.

              Hey everyone! Today is day:

              65 for Bubba Kush
              48 for Diesel
              34 for 3 Bears and Amnesia XXL


              The Bubba Kush is starting to swell up nicely! Hairs are still about 90% white, so she still has a while to go. I'm thinking it will definitely be close to my Blue Dream's 5 O's, hopefully more!

              Ahhh, the diesel. I'm afraid she just won't flower. I could dispose of her now, but I'm just going to keep her until my seeds come. I think I will go with devil's cream, another red strain.

              The 3 Bears and Amnesia XXL are starting to get hairs. I did some more training on them today, and they are laying nice and flat. They are definitely smaller than they should be at this point, but I think that's because I stripped them earlier than I should have. Live and learn!

              Have a wonderful week everyone!

                Hey everyone! Good news and bad news today. Good news is I got my seeds in the mail! The bad news is that the diesel still isn't showing any signs of flower, so I pulled her today. She made it 7 weeks in and no flowers.

                This is the 2nd auto that hasn't gone into flower. It sucks, but out of 4 grows, that means 15 out of 17 did. Seeing the silver lining in this means I get to start a new seed earlier than anticipated! I will be going with devil's cream.

                I got some more photoperiod freebies, even though I clicked the autos tab when choosing freebies. I did get some auto freebies too though, so I'll take it. I now have enough photo period seeds that I am contemplating on doing a photo period grow for next time. We shall see what happens!

                Here's pics of the diesel right before I pulled her. Have a great day everyone! The devil's cream will be going in later tonight!

                  mcubed476, that's a dad gum shame, when they don't flower, ain't it ? That's alot of energy and time almost for nothing, maybe the Diesel will do ok outdoors, I hope so.
                  I put that RedPoison that never flowered after 70days, out in the woods , probably over a month ago, and haven't even been back to check on her, lol, I'm still half way mad about that. But good luck with yours 476.
                  Man ,for such a short time growing, your plants look as healthy and as good as anyone's on GWE ,!!!. Keep it up.!!!

                  It is a shame indeed Daas, but it's part of the game I suppose. If anyone ever found that red poison in the woods, they would be thinking they just hit the jackpot with the color alone lol. You should go check on her to see how she's doing and take a pic!

                  I appreciate the kind words Daas. I put devil cream in last night, so should have another pretty strain here in a couple months.
