datadude's Big Girls.

83 posts in this topic

Hi dudes,

It's been about a year since I have been on the site for various reasons, I'm back for a short while to share me big girls and maybe answer any questions.

Anyway, the growing has not been too bad considering that we had a 6 month winter, and it was still cold and freezing at the beginning of the season, anyone notice it snowed 6 times

in 6 months, in the UK?

Last year as a few of you may know, i cropped 7 big girls, here are last years figures, there were 7 plants to begin with all hit 7-10 ft high, the weather claimed two, they took so much wind damage,

I found if a big girl loses a middle branch, there little hope of her recovering. and one went moldy before i could get to her, so really i had 4 large plants, I managed to trim 84 ounces off the remaining plants with the biggest yielding around 24-26 dried ounces off her.
It took two weeks of 12 hour days to give it all a proper close trim and get into the drying room, also 84 dried ounces needs 36 large kilner jars.

This year I tried the same again, but bigger, i doubled the GG plot size and and filled all 6 of the large pots I have.

I started taking cuttings around beginning of march, kept them in my tent and potted them up religiously, I took a variety of cuttings from a few various seeds:

10x cheese - reg
2 x green poison
2 x jack 47
2 x wild rose
1 x chocolate heaven-g13
1 x og kush-reserva
1 x critical plus
1 x silver l.a.-reserva
1 x grapefruit-positronic
2 x bubba kush-hs-regs
2 x goji og-bohdi-regs

2 x old times x smile
2 x ot/cheese x cheese/smile

1 x cheese candy auto
1 x l.a. woman
1 x white widow x big bud
1 x l.a. confidential

I basically just planted out everything i had in my little seedbank, all the single freebies and a couple of packs i had been saving.

As for feed, i dont feed mine much, i only use plant magic, oldtimer range, veg, bloom and boost, and they live in plant magic soil.

I give all the plants half dose feeds than what it says on the bottle.

I suppose we better get on with the show, i havent bothered taking pictures up until now as vegging plants are boring, but we're getting close to flower now, so its all getting a little more exciting.

GG plot

My GG plot, with 7 big girls in it, can you spot them? I'll get some close up shots today dudes.

I hope you have enjoyed the pictures dudes and i'll try and add a few more as we get closer to flower in a couple of weeks.

I'll also get over the GG plot and get a few pictures of the big girls in the wild.

If I can inspire one person to get their grow on, its been worth it for me, just be prepared that outdoor growing is a learning curve, like anything.

the first year or two, be prepared for the very, very worst and it all seems to come good year two or three, so bare that in mind when you start out.

Any questions, please fire away.

Looking great. Remember that CoC is a photography competition with weed as the theme. So borrow a good camera and take lots of interesting shots to stand a chance of getting nominated.

Hi mate,

thanks for the comments, i started them off around march, as for anyone noticing, it seems once they get over a certain size, say, 6-8 ft, people stop noticing them.

my friend is a tent grower,(he's only ever seen smaller plants) he walked into my garden, stood there smoking a joint and said, where are they then, lol, that kinda summed it up really.

Hi Gom mate,

i wasn't, but i just couldnt keep away, this should be a short return, the internet here will be cut off in 2 weeks, so i probably wont be back for at least 1-2 years.

i will try upload a few pictures for the GG boys in an internet cafe or something , as i dont use mobile devices and will have no computers for a while it may be a little difficult.
