It’s been awhile since my last post.
Here’s what I got going now:
Random Strain - Bagseed
15 gal Fabric pot with some organic soil from Walmart (low budget at the time of transplant, usually use Fox Farm Happy Frog)
Using LST training to make her all bushy
Green Planet Nutrients (MediOne and Liquid W8)
Mammoth P Microbes (really excited to try this product out!!! My local hydroponic store highly recommended and gave me a test bottle)
Had some pH problems at the beginning because wasn’t properly calibrating my pH and PPM
meter. But all gucci now!
let me know what y’all think of her!
Holy lollipop Batman lol looks good but remember you need those fan leaves for sugar production during flower so I would not take to many more of them wounderful sugar producers
Yes she’s lost a lot of leaves in the process. She’s making a comeback now though.
Here is a few more pictures. One from the top and side. One showing the size of the fan leaves and the stem where I topped then LSTed the plant.
Update: I added some bamboo and got creative (lol) to how I could support her the best before she flowers.
Trimmed off the lower growth that isn’t getting much light or won’t produce any substantial.
Just in the last couple of days, she has been starting to pop pistils everywhere and is starting to stack on all the colas. Since I noticed this, I started to add some of the Green Planet: “Massive” nutrients to aid with flowering.
So stoked to see what she produces!
Btw the bamboo sticks are 4ft cuts so that can give you some idea on the dimensions of that beautiful canopy
Update! More LST and more pistils popping off.
I have a question, I’m a first time outdoor grower, and my two females have little balls on them, and I’m concerned they got pollinated by a Male. I’ll go take some pics to include in my next post.
Hey buddy. i would have responded if i saw this sooner.
Yes, to me those look like they were pollinated by another male plant or the plant made its own male flowers.
My short plant has about 4 branches (sad face) that are completely seeded up. Wasn’t paying attention and my plant grew it’s own male flowers and I wasn’t there’s to snip them off before they opened.
On “hermie” plants, the male flowers will look like little yellow bananas coming right out the buds (instead of the “balls” most are used to seeing). It’s no bueno when it happens but it is a part of growing these plants. The buds that were pollinated can still be smoked in my personal experience and with a good cure, they develop into some good smoke. But, not as strong and you have to pick the seeds out lol
Update: the girls are a little over halfway done. Starting to get frosty and swelling up nicely.
Wait ! I’m confused , are they girls or boys ?
Looks like a fem to me. But I’m a newb.
Those are male pollen sacks. For sure.
They will open up into little white flowers soon which hold the pollen you don’t want on your females.
Female parts look like a teardrop shape with white hairs coming out the tip.
Males look like grapes, or balls on the end of stems.
Harvest Time! I’ll post a final weigh in when the girls are all dried up
Trimmed off all fan leaves and left on the sugar leaves. let them go one more day like this before I chopped:
Here they are chopped down and hung up to dry out. They smell great with a lot of resin:
