Day 48 (contd)

 

Here's the older Crystal Candy Auto on day 48:

There's loads of pistils shooting out:

There's quite a lot of trichomes appearing underneath them, too:

Here's the older Mohan Ram Auto:

It's got a very piney smell, and very sugary leaves:

Thank you very much @AustrianTokker - I'm not uncrossing my fingers for another few weeks yet, but I am very happy with how it's going this time.

 

Thanks again @Serpent for your wonderful encouragement :cheers:

Day 49 to Day 51


The weather has been a bit cooler the past few days, so I have needed the oil-filled radiator again to keep temperatures up. It has been at 25°C - 28°C, down to 22°C minimum with the lights off. To help the humid conditions I added another USB fan. I now have three - two above the canopy and one below. Humidity has between high 50s and mid 60s most of the time but the readings will go lower than that if the tent is open for any length of time.


On day 51 I reduced the nutrient solution concentration to 0.9 EC, by dropping the Gro altogether. It's now 1 ml/l Bloom and 0.5ml/l Micro. I have been setting the pH to 6.1 or 6.2 the past few days.


I took some pictures on day 51. Here's the tent:

Top: Mohan Ram Auto, Blow Mind Auto, Mohan Ram Auto (younger)
Bottom: Crystal Candy Auto, Killer Kush Auto, Crystal Candy Auto (younger)


The older Crystal Candy Auto has a fat main cola now, and looks like it will get fatter still very soon. It smells as good as it looks too, very sweet like tropical fruit:

The older Mohan Ram Auto:

I looked at the trichomes on the older Mohan Ram Auto. This is the very top of the plant:

A bit further down:

Day 51 (cont)


Some more pictures from day 51. At this point the Killer Kush Auto is the most advanced of the plants in the tent and looks like it will be first to finish:

Some orange pistils on top of the flowers:

Lots of cloudy trichomes:
large.5cc40b11424ef_d51kktrichomes2.jpg


The Blow Mind Auto is a good way behind in comparison. It has an incredibly strong lemon smell when touched or disturbed, like kitchen cleaner:
large.5cc40afbc8123_d51bm.jpg


The younger Mohan Ram Auto may be a big plant but the flowers are not, not yet at least. Day 51 was equivalent to day 45 for the younger plants:
large.5cc40af55c333_d51mr2.jpg

 

It has a similar pine smell to the older plant.


I am very happy to say the younger Crystal Candy Auto also smells like it's elder sibling. This one has started to swell. The LST has produced nice dainty colas, like mini versions of the older one:

Thanks for looking. Things have been a bit busy outside of the tent here recently so I haven't had as much time to look at other diaries as I'd like, hopefully I will soon.

Thanks @Serpent, I am really pleased with how those came out. Not shown - the many over/under exposed, blurred, poorly focused attempts!

Day 52 to Day 56


Today is day 56, it has been eight weeks since the first four popped up and I switched on the light. I have a few pictures I took on day 55. This is the tent:
large.5cc9fea1b0e0e_d55groupshot.jpg

Top: Mohan Ram Auto, Blow Mind Auto, Mohan Ram Auto (younger)
Bottom: Crystal Candy Auto, Killer Kush Auto, Crystal Candy Auto (younger)


The plants seemed to deteriorate a little - yellowing and leaf drop on lower parts, burnt tips looking worse, some curling - so on day 54 I switched the food back to the 3-2-1 Bloom-Micro-Gro as on the bottle, EC 1.0.


The Killer Kush Auto and the Blow Mind Auto are both the worst with the burnt tips. The Killer Kush Auto is the most done:
large.5cc9feb05eaf4_d55kk.jpg

 

Ideally I'd say it'd have one more week, maybe a little longer. It does have a few red trichomes already, mostly on the sugar leaves but I've also seen one or two on the bracts.


The Blow Mind Auto is the least done:

Due to time constraints, to allow a week to dry, I can really give it a maximum of three more weeks growing, which I think should be enough.

It's great to come back here and see how much they've filled out the tent with stonking resinous buds and your photos are great dude :yep: 

Yes it can be quite frustrating with the macro shots, I lose my patience often and settle for what I get. Very time consuming.

I like the way you directed the warm arid air from the dehumidifier to your intake.
