Bloom Day 26 - DoubleWhite (1), Green Poison (1), Cream Caramel (4)
OK so no major news here. Buds have been showing for the last 2 weeks, whereas im usually used to seeing them only start around now in 'photoperiod' or regular varieties..Well around 20 days usually...In a way its taken the exciting part of seeing buds form after a long veg but I got that thrill a couple of weeks early is all I guess...so right now Im just bidding my time hoping that theyre happy and end up producing to the max.
Only photo updates really, no news other than I supercropped CreamCaramel1, the one that was lany as fukk...her main top is bent right over and hasnt risen up yet actually so she may stay down without being tied I will have to see. Probly a bad sign if she doesnt need tying down but each strain to their own and right now the s-cropping is surving its purpose so happy days.
All plants are looking lush, so I fed them plane water only tonight. I have been feeding every feed otherwise, but mostly at half-3/4 strentgh, Canna Coco A+B, Rhizotonic, Cannazym (this is more for the older bigger DWhite) and a few drops (usually ~7 drops of PH Down per 5 lts, and ~10 drop per 10lts works for me).
Temps are good at low 19c and high 28c. Low RH is ~35 and high RH ~63-67 (cant remember if meter read 63 or 67! knew its was just either side of the budrot RH threshold!)
Approx 1.5L per day per plant (DoubleWhite is in 11L so get 2.5L approx)
Water from tap:
PH 7.7, EC 0.02 - bubbled for over 24hrs to remove chlorine from the water (esp important for any noobs using organic setups)..
Canna Coco A+B, Canna Rhizo, Cannaym, PK 13/14 Fish Mix if needed (rarely needed)
Feed Solution Strength:
this varies usualy based on 1) previous feeds i.e how long since last feed and how strong was it 2) how do they generally look. I dont follow any schedules or plans as such, but I do add a little extra Canna PK Boost around 2/3/4 weeks into flowering, but only very lightly, only once, or if twice its at least 7-10 days apart. This is so the plant has some reserves for the last few weeks of bloom when the magic happens. The last thing you want is a PK build up (or any nute build up) in the last weeks before harvest. But at the same time I dont want a plant that's used most of it's nutrient reserves by week 5 of bloom so thats why I feed at under full strenght pretty much all throughout bloom. Less so with the regular varieties (3/4 of manufacturers remcommendations is usually my limit) buts very strictly with the autos which I feed at half strength..
As a respected someone on this forum says its not the feed that gives you buds, its the environment that makes it work or not.. wise words..even if they are paraphrased!
Low 19c - HIgh 27/28c
35% - 65% approx - maybe its time to start bringing in the the dehudifier. Well, it will be a while yet, ive only started getting RH readings from my meter once again in the last few days! For the last few months it's read -- so just presumed it was shot. Then one day I put it up to my mouth, exhaled some air direct onto the sensor on the back and it seemed to start worked again.
OK photo time..im going to leave tent 2 til again cuz Im so tired, Ive only had spliff#1 (I usuallly need at least 3 before my head will turn off and I can sleep)..
Here's em all together - doesnt look proper full, but the negative pressure is surprisingly reductive towards the capacity of the tent..
DoubleWhite #1 no other DWs and shes way more mature that the others so theres no confusion here
She was topped a few times in early veg, so has a resonable canapy (it has a supreme canapy wrt the rest of the ladies in the tent ..couple of weeks and shell be way hottter
CC#1 - Lankstar (havent thought of a proper name for her yet..maybe "Twix" cuz shes long tall and sweet)...
Some early buddage.
And the supercropped terminal bud on Twix, still not regaining her stature (ill have a peak now in a bit) - suits me if she stays put but is it saying something about her health that she's not springing back into line?]]
OK so tired, not enogh stoned, not enogh hours for sleep until work...
Hope youre all well and your plants are happy. Andmay be one day be legally be able to grow and consume a reasonable amount of weed in home or provate etc...oknow im waffling..thats SS bud for ya! hahaha...Nite all..
