Kali Mist

Hey guys, I thought you may be interested in this Kali Mist seedling.

 

I vegged her until she was stable and pinched her top, so there were 2 branches.

 

I put her in a heated greenhouse in the back garden in the last week of Feb and just left her, really. 

 

The light was crap and she really didn't stretch much at all during that initial phase.

 

It took at least 4 weeks for the flowers to start to show.

 

By the time it was really flowering a lot it was April and the sun was stronger, so she seemed to do OK then.

 

In May, I started to put her in a dark room at 8pm and wake her up at 8am the next morning, to make sure that she stayed in flowering mode by restricting her daylight to 12 hours.

 

By now, the light is not bad at all - at least when the sun actually shines! When it rains she goes into the greenhouse but when it is sunny or overcast but warm she goes outdoors, in order to maximise the light she receives. I always move her with the sunbeam as the sun moves across the sky.

 

She is grown in organic soil, which was prepared in advance with compost extracts and organic amendments and left to mature. She has been fed with low levels of Plant Magic Old Timer's Organic Bloom (2ml/l), an organic tomato feed that contains loads of humid and fulvic acid (at 1/5 strength) and whatever Seaweed Extract I can find (at 1/4 strength) in water from my fish tank (it is warm, chlorine free and full of organic matter - nitrifying bacterias which eat ammonia, other bacterias, nitrates and other stuff from the fishy poo) or rain water from the butt.

 

The plants are mulched with a well rotted compost (a high nitrogen pile) and horse manure. I did let the mulch get too close to the fat stem and it does cause problems if you did that, though. 1 of the branches snapped off when I set the plant down today - I noticed it was wobbly yesterday. Never mind, it was ready anyway.

I have harvested the rest of the Kali Mist. Here are some photos to enjoy. I hope they do the plant justice. I had so much fun growing this in the spring sunshine. It smells very nice. Citric and maybe peppery.
