Sweet Zkittlez Coco Newbie.

46 posts in this topic

Start of week 6 of Flowering today.

 

Just fed the Zkittlez today and managed to get a few pictures. They are fattening up real well. They smell lovely :yahoo:

 

I've noticed a few rust spots on the tips of the leafs and on the leafs coming from the buds. I think I'm over feeding them slightly. I'll drop the ec and see how they are. 

 

Any suggestions on what they rust spots could be would be great.

 

Just made up a new batch of feed for this week. Using Callmag at 0.5ml/L and coco A+B at 2ml/L. An ec of 1.6 and ph between 6.0 - 6.2

 

Temps havent been above 26c canopy level. Its sitting around 24c 25c.

 

Now for sum bud porn :ninja:

Start of week 7.

 

The plant on the right has less orange hairs. Shes still producing white hairs. Both plants have been getting a little heat stressed. I have moved the pots around the best I can. Next grow I'll definitely have to train them to keep them short. 

 

Still fed at between 5.8 and 6.2 ph. Ec is at 1.6

 

These ladies could be ready in around 2-3 weeks. I now have to read up on flushing with coco. This is a first for me.

 

Here is a few photos of the Sweet Zkittlez :toldya:

@Green_bhoy looking good.

you’ll get lots of different opinions on flushing, some say don’t flush at all. 
Me personally I just give them plain water for 5-7 days and I’ve never had bad harsh tasting weed I also never feed above 1.5/1.6 ec.

I tried slowly upping the feed to 1.8 ec at one point but they never liked it. I'm feeding at 1.5 ec. 

 

I made up a feed this morning. I do it in 14 litre bucket.

 

0.5ml/L of calmag.

2ml/L of Coco A+B.

 

As this is my first coco grow I'll do things different next grow.  A short veg next time. Ditch the autopot system and hand water from the start till finish. Pot up in stages as i only done one pot up and put the plant straight into the autopot. And try scrog to maximise my small grow tent. It's very bushy in the tent just now and at my limit for height for my light.

Start of week 8 of Flowering.

 

Things are coming along nicely. Still fattening up real good. The plant on the left still hasn't got much orange hairs yet. Still lots of white hairs. I'm thinking this one will go to 10wks. I will have to chop them both down at the same time.

 

This smell is just like a pcket of skittle sweets. Cant wait to taste this strain and make some hash with the trim and sugar leafs.

 

Still on the same feed.

Week 9 + 1 day flowering.

 

I have decided to start the flush on these 2 ladies. They are getting light and heat stress and now is the time to start the journey to chop time. They got there first flush with plain water today.

 

Do I ph the water to say between 5.8 -6.0?

 

Do I flush them every day?

 

The trichomes are cloudy with the odd amber trichomes. They smell lovely. 

 

As soon as these are hanging to dry, I'm going to crack the other 2 I have left. Thinking of trying the airports again or try the fabric pots. 

 

What do yous guys think? I'll pot up in stages instead of straight into the autopot pots. Not going to use the autopot for the next run.

 

 

Here is a few pics. Managed to get a pic of the trichomes through my loupe with the phone.

Day 10 of drying.

 

Just a wee update. I'm on day 10 of drying. It's been a nightmare with the cold snaps up my way. It's been 0c and minus some days. The loft is very cold.

 

I havent been able to get my tent above 15c. Its went to 7c at its lowest. Using a small tube heater in the corner. I have been checking buds for bud rot and the buds are fine. Just taking longer to dry.

 

The pictures are mostly the top buds and a little popcorn buds. Still got the airy stuff to take off. They are still hanging up.
