Day 60 flower
The clones are on an incredible 62 days, ive managed to keep them small. Which is kinda on purpose. Didnt want them out growing those pots, while flower tent was still full. So everything is on schedule.
Checked trics this morning, the glookies is ready, gonna chop it down in the morning.
Tropicana Banana trics look ready but the plant doesnt look ready, still alot of white pistils and buds are still swelling. So I’ll let her go a little bit longer, probably chop her Thursday morning. Her trics are mostly cloudy with about 10% amber.
The veg tent is moving along slowly just like i need it to. As soon as other girls finish drying, and i clean the tent, I’ll transplant the three into buckets and run all three this time, wont veg but a week or two then flip to flower. By that time I’ll know if i want to keep these phenos and will take clones.
So all in all this has been my best run indoors so far. Looking back i have about 10 indoor harvest and this is by far gonna be tha heaviest ive had. Dont know about potency yet. Here’s some pics.
Day 60 flower
Day 61 flower
Couldnt bring myself to harvest yet, plants are just to green for my liking. Some leaves are starting to fade but most are green. Did take a couple of branches to sample, have them drying in trimbin. Did a wet trim on buds. They smell good already. Other than that, things are moving along. Clones are really starting to veg out. Trying not to lst to much since i still have to transplant them. Timing is getting thrown off a lil but ill make a way to get this harvest/transplant happen. Took some pics of sample buds.
Day 64 flowering
Checked trics just now! They’re not ready yet. But im starting to see some yellowing on both plants, and looking at trics i should be able to harvest both at same time. They might go 70 days, or more im gonna harvest when i start seeing more amber. Had to stake up the Tropicana Banana she was flopping all over the place. And she smells so dam good, the glookies i cant really smell too much. And im sure the glookies has gotten frostier, i can see it railing up on buds. Gonna give them 2days and check again. Smoking some glookies now, and it gets u, but its not ready at 60 days. I know im ready to start next run, i wanna see what this kongs krush is gonna do. Gonna run three so gonna have to flip sooner. As far as looks go, the glookies is winning by far. She beautiful!!! Hope she smokes as good as she looks.
Veg tent looks ok. Everybodies green. Tb has a few funky looking leaves, but its genetic bc her mom had the same thing. That lil auto is starting to swell. If i get a quarter bag ill be surprised.
Trics are looking good to go on both plants. Im seeing mostly cloudy with about 15% amber and very few clear. Will chop on day 69!!! Both plants. They’ve had a good long life 111 days from sprout. And they’ll live on, clones!!! Included some blurry tric pics.
Veg tent is doing okay. Clones are ready for their new bucket homes.
Impatience is setting in, but im gonna fight it. The 18 grams of early samples are almost gone, just enough for labor day. Took some fishing with me and the guys loved that shit. It was a lil harsh from no cure, but it gets u nice and high. It jacks u up and makes me talk alot. Hopefully the extra 10 days will help that. I wanna be lock to my couch or fishing chair. So might have to buy a couple more quarter bags to tide me over until these gals dry and cure.
This shit still amazes me, we can grow our own medicine, from a lil tiny seed, you could potentially get pounds of sticky buds!!! Sorry folks, i get a lil emotional when it comes to harvesting… I love my gals, man!!! Oh well time to get blazed!!!
Ok day 69 flowering
Both plants are hanging to dry, cut them down whole and hung them whole with no trim. Now the wait begins. The Tropicana Banana smells fruity and the glookies smells skunky/gassy. Both look great. Didnt even check trics already checked yesterday they were good. Cleaned tent and buckets. Ready to go for transplant, but gonna wait until these are dry.
Ok just got the idea to do a wet weight so i can keep track of drying. I heard we lose 75% weight during drying, or somewhere around there.
The glookies weighed 2lbs and the Tropicana Banana weighed in at 2.5lbs. Now idk how accurate my fishing scale is, but thats what i used.
So maybe 4 ozs a plant, i was guessing 3 per. Ill be happy with whatever… Bc it should last to next harvest.
Veg tent looking ok, this dam auto is turning colors. Idk if shes almost done or what. Just gave her a feeding of root organic terp tea bloom a couple days ago. Dont know whats going on with this lil bitch. Heres a few more pics.
Dam hairs, looks like ill be smoking hair and gnats maybe. Hell i might have to inspect every bud, while trimming. Dam sure aint bud washing!
3rd pic from bottom, looks like one of my hairs, with a gnat attached to it, idk im old cant really see to well.
Girls are still drying. Getting close. Gonna be a quick dry. Im thinking seven days. Been 4 days tomorrow morning. So ill keep checking daily. Couldnt maintain the optimum 60°F-60%rh environment. My environment has been holding steady at 72°-75°F-52-56%rh. So my dry will be quicker than i like(10-14days). So the cure will take longer in my experience. Which i really dont mind smoking right after drying, i will cure most of this at least 2-3weeks. Lets say two!!!
Veg tent is looking green. The auto is finishing up quickly. Its been like 60 something days. Ill wait until shes all the way done, like 50% amber trics. Ill transplant the clones and kongs krush in a few days. Gotta get some kinda mulch layer material. Ill post update when gals get dried.
Ok everything is harvested, curing, and transplanted. The girls turned out better than i expected. Here’s the totals.
Total of 320g / 350 watts of led so almost a gram/watt.
Each of the individual numbers are each time i trimmed and finished a few branches. Turned out way better than i expected. And no hay smell whatsoever. So im thinking this should last me a while. Hopefully til next harvest. I was surprised at the weight of the glookies, i didn’t think it was that much. The buds a dense af, need a grinder to break up, unless u like sticky fingers all day.
Also i find it funny, u smoke more when u grow your own! Lol.
Got the glookies in the 1/4lb grove bag and a 1oz grove bag. Didnt have enough grove bags for TB, so some of her are in jars.
Gonna water in transplants with some recharge to kick them off right. And the small auto is almost done, just gonna let her fade all the way out. Might try an experiment with her, when it comes time to harvest, ill just leave her in the pot with lights off, and no water to see if she’ll dry in the pot. Always wanted to try it.
Hey yall its so much better smoking your own shit. My shit is better than alot of shit i get from the streets, now i aint gonna be crazy, i have had better from the streets every once in a blue moon, but for the most part this shit is better. Ik im biased. Heres some pics.
Ok new gals are doing much better even the kongs krush. Just put net in to see how it looks, I don’t like it. The holes look to big to me for a scrog, might just use as a kinda trellis. Might just take it down and just shape my plants how i want them. But theyre looking alot better.
The auto is fattening up. Might get a quarter bag.lol she looks tasty though. Heres a few pics of b4 tie down and after.
Gonna move auto in tent with other 3, and stop wasting lights and fans on her. Was gonna just leave her in pot to dry to just see how it goes. Wanna try everything at least once. And this is the perfect plant for that
Day 7 since i put veg plants in buckets, and they’re doing great! Spreading out nicely and putting out some branches. The kings krush is giving the glookies a run for her money in the vigorous growth department. Cut down auto trics were mostly cloudy with a few amber. Just got tired of looking at her lil pitiful ass. So she is drying now.
Look like some solid nugs
Day 10 since in buckets
Theyre doing great, really think i could start flowering now. Ill givem a few more days. Maybe another week or so. The kongs krush is really vigorous, but they all look good, gave them some recharge and tied down some branches right after pics were taken. The auto is dry and in the jar 20g’s or so. Smoked a blunt and shes nice, glad i let her live. Smells and taste pretty good for a quick dry.
Great update, plants do look happy and those bud pics are bomb! Enjoy that blunt growmie!!
