Sorry if you were watching, long story short, I need to buy a new computer, but not in the budget atm, I kept up with the same routibe, I do have day to day records but not on me while writing this, will post when get the desk top up and running, this is a pic from the 20th of January, started flower the 20th of December.
All ilgm seeds. Same setup as above , Almost 2 Months from seed. To be honest I forgot what day forgot to record start soak, usually only care when I start flower.
2 Gorillia Glue.
3 Maui Wowi
2 Trainwreck, or skywalker or one each, dont know, ordered Trainwreck seeds cames labled skywalker. And the plants are completly different… One sative Dom one indica Dom
The dwarf gorilla glue in the bottom right grew that way from seed no croping. From seed the main grew together and only the 2 first feeder leaves were there for a month before one day it just blew out a bunch of stalks.
I also found out that if you forget to wash off the azos mykos off the underside of the leaves, it causes symptoms that resemble spidermites munching on your leaves, if left too long the symptoms start looking like phosphorus deficiency. You can see on some of the lower leaves.
Labeled skywalker I think it’s Train wreck.
Labeled skywalker ordered Trainwreck but I think it looks like Lsd?
