Today is the start of week 2 at 12/12 for my gelato, stretch is in full affect. She’s doing extremely well, average 5 days per gallon of water with little to zero runoff each time. Nutrients are very minimal so far, just cal mag at each watering and over the last 3 waters I’ve been slowly increasing the amount of supplemental nitrogen. At this point next watering will be water only to flush the soil just a bit, followed by a first feeding of tiger bloom. Provided I see clearly defined buttons by then🤣
And also my monster crop clone from my bag seed plant is starting to really grow now, though I really hope her growth stays relatively slow the next 2 months. Not exactly sure how I will keep her going and growing while the box is occupied, but like everything else… I’ll figure it out. My first grow was 4 oz, I’m hoping for 6 plus but I’ll settle for less. Just need to get more than 4 to know I’m progressing
Looks great! You’ve really filled out your space! I’d say you’re doing excellent!!
Thanks breezy, sorry I hardly update this much anymore or even pay attention to the forum as much as I did. It’s hard to pay attention to much of anything with so much going on right now you know.
19 days into flower and here’s how she looks
And of course here’s some updates of my clone, she’s finally returned to veg state and growing very healthy
Watered gelato yesterday with the usual 1 gallon water with cal mag, this time I added tiger bloom since I’ve got buttons already. No runoff so I will probably be watering again Monday. The clone is still wet from its transplant on Monday, probably won’t need water till Friday is my guess.
23 days into flower and the growth of exceptional. Gelato is a strain that was described as being difficult to grow, to be honest this is the easiest so far. No nutrients burn, no ph issues, all green and healthy this far.
And just like before here’s an update of my clone
Now all the details
Monday morning, the 12th, fed gelato 1 gallon water with 5ml cal mag and 12 ml tiger bloom. Plus 2 pumps of my all purpose feed, normal feeding strength is 8 pumps. I did 2 to keep nitrogen a little high while she’s still stretching. Defoliate some and got my lights at the same level now. I’m kicking out 230 watts of actual power, that plus the 6 gallon pot this plant is taller at 2 1/2 weeks than my last plant was at 8 weeks. Let’s hope for a double yield, last harvest was 4 ounces and I want to get 8 this time
Clone still doesn’t need water but getting close, like I thought should be good till Friday when gelato needs more water
She’s beautiful. Looks like you are now a professional grower!!!
It helped getting this girl sprouted and veged while still flower my last plant. I kind of picked up right where I left off while the memory was still clear. Which is good because if I would’ve waited until now to get started, after enjoying my harvest daily for 3 weeks now. Would’ve been foggy to say the least . How did your girl turn out, the high where you want it?
She turned out okay. hard to tell if it was where i wanted it as i’ve smoked it before it properly cured lmao. It definitely gets you lifted, but not quite the couch lock i was looking for as of yet. I can tell it’s significantly better today than when I first jarred it(taste aroma and high). I also didn’t flush her correctly at the end because once i saw she had pollinated herself i kinda flipped out and chopped her a little early. I probably have about a quarter left of her and I smoked a single bowl last night that got my pretty ripped. Still haven’t found a single seed in her yet. The gashers I got from @BigHuff2316 is really starting to take off now. She is easily doubling in size every 4-7 days. Pretty stoked for that girl!
Aw man, i didnt know you started a new thread.
luckily I tagged you in growmie
How the heck did you get so far ahead of us.
He started before he chopped the first one.
lol so did I!! I started like a week before i think, he musta had some weeks on me.
The Ganja Gods are in his favor!
I started my gelato seed right at the end of July, had her vegging outside while the summer sun was good. By the time my box was available I only had to veg her for about 2 weeks. Then flipped to flower, she’s growing crazy. I’ve handed out plenty of my harvest to friends and all have good things to say about it, did you boys hand out any?
Oh yeah, Ive given out most of it, I kept an oz of the gelato, an oz of the lsd, and like an eigth of the gdp…THIS time…I’m gonna try for like 8 oz. we shall see though. My gelato is just starting to taste really good. I screwed up the cure cause its super dry and super sticky at the same time.
I dont really like the LSD, but its yield was nice for how small it was. Might be good for breeding later down the line.
I think I got the cure down pretty good, I had some though just like you said. It turned out dry but sticky at the same time. If I was careful the bud would snap off easy and all is good. Some though I would squeeze and it would crush like powder, but be sticky.
I haven’t had any of these problems with the cure. The only problem I’ve had is trying to stay away from it lmao . I’ve literally smoked 94% of my harvest within a month.
Fill up that tent bro!! wall to wall! thats what im gonna try…lol
