Sounds good enjoy the game. I built my 135. Took me an hour but I took my time and made sure it was correct. I could have done it in half the time but I had some outside interference.
Thanks for letting me learn from tried and true growers. I’ve got more questions so thanks for letting me bend your ear.
Your ladies looking swell as usuall @blackthumbbetty ! Missed so much time on the forum but glad to see almost everyone has their hands and pots full:)
Glad you’re back! I apologize for the mess that is this journal. I have been seriously slacking with the updates.
Here’s a photo update, just for you @rumpelstiltskin.
Total plant count:10
Age: between 4wks-9wks
The one with yellow leaves is a Blue Cheese; last BC I grew did the same. She’ll probably be ready to harvest in a few weeks, so I’m not killing myself trying to fix her.
I was thinking the same thing looking good
Holy crap that was a big update lol
Since the grow-off entries are getting wonky re: editing them, I thought I’d put a copy of it in this journal, too.
I gotta say, I definitely cannot successfully manage 10 plants & 3 different journals, at once. Set myself up for failure.
Lol I understand that. I think I bit off more than I can chew on the new room. It’ll be great when it’s done but the building it is killing me.
You’re not done, yet?
Lol nope. A few critical parts got delayed with the winter storm up north. I’ve got the lights to build and hang the filter and fan. I started on the lights but the bending over is kicking my butt.
My water filter setup still hasn’t got here.
Thanks @blackthumbbetty, looks fab! I am so jealous of all the space you have;) I am left with room for one plant now😅
Very Busy Girl, Way supper Nice! Good job!
Let’s get everyone up to speed. No clever gimmicks, just the facts.
Today is Day 71/49/42 from germination, depending on which plant we’re talking about.
Blurple Tent, 520 true watts at 22": Grow off plant, Bloody Skunk 1, Fastberry, Blue Cheese, Goldrush, Blue Dream 1(chopped)
QB Tent, 275 watts at 24": Daquiri Lime, Green Crack, Bloody Skunk 2, and Blue Dream 2
Temps day/night: 78-80/64
RH day/night: 45/55
Light cycle: 16/8, but flipping to 12/12 this weekend, at some point
-Daquiri Lime is 71 days. She started true bloom 1/28. This girl recieved lst, which is why she is insanely bushy! She doesn’t like to eat much.
-Green Crack is 71 days old. She started true bloom 1/26. This girl recieved lst, which is why she is insanely bushy. She’s a hungry girl.
-Blue Dream #2 is 49 days old. She started true bloom 2/6. This girl was topped at the 4th node on day 19, then lst’d using a screen for about 2 weeks starting at day 24. She had some calcium issues a couple weeks back, but I got her back on track.
-Bloody Skunk #2 is 49 days old. She started true bloom 1/29. She was topped at day 19, but received no farther training. Her leaves showed tip burn beginning at about week 4. She seems to have just been a bit nute/light sensitive, since the beginning. Definitely not affecting her too terribly. She’s doing fine. She’s been kinda shoved in the corner her whole life, too. Poor girl.
-At day 70, I chopped the Mutie Girl Blue Dream #1. Her trichs we already cloudy with a few amber. Weird she was ready before anyone else. Her buds stayed small, but got rock hard. A few colas were 2 or 3 headed! She was stressed from the beginning, then I kept adding to it. Oh, well, I knew to expect it, so not upset. I have 9 more plants to go.
-Bloody Skunk #1 is 71 days old. True bloom began 1/15. She will be harvested next Friday, on day 78. She was screwed up early, then I doubled down and supercropped her. She has actually grown better than my Autumn '18 BS.
-Blue Cheese is 71 days old. True bloom began 1/11. She will be harvested sometime between next Mon-Fri, dats 74-78. She’s a shorty due to early mistakes, but holy crap, look at her girth! She’s ugly, but the last one did the same thing near the end, too.
-Fastberry is 71 days old. True bloom began 1/15. She was the little effed up, severely stunted seedling that I never gave up on. She grew into an effed up looking plant, but I bet her buds taste delicious. She’s almost ready to harvest, but not quite. I really don’t want to feed her, but her leaves are already showing end of life deficiencies. I plan on harvesting her by 3/1, SOONER THAN LATER. Today is her last feed. EDIT: NOT FEEDING HER…
-Gold Rush is a semi-automatic plant that’s 42 days old. She started showing pistils/her sex on 2/5. She was an afterthought, a wth kinda plant. I almost tossed her, b/c she didn’t do much her first 2 weeks. She was topped on day 20, then screened for 10 days beginning 2/1… She’s a bit light in color, but her nutes are being increased, today.
Today is a feed day. All QB girls are getting full bloom nutes:
6 gallons tap water
6 tbsp bloom
3 tbsp catalyst
4 tbsp meta K
2 tbsp microblast
3 tbsp nirvana
2 tbsp Demeter’s
PH’d to 6.0
Goldrush is getting a half gallon of the above (minus Nirvana), a half gallon of tap, and 1 tbsp grow, pH’d to 6.0.
They’re also getting Recharge & Mammoth P once a week, between feedings.
PH run-off has been averaging 6.8, which is high for typical Promix grows, but with the Earth Juice, I’m finding a run-off of anything between 6.2-7 keeps the girls in fine health.
Grow-off is fed via reservoir, see grow-off journal
–Blue Cheese & Bloody Skunk #1 have trichs which are all cloudy. Friday, 2/8, was their last feed day. Today will be last feed day for Fastberry. EDIT: DECIDED NOT TO FEED FASTBERRY.
FECK, WRITING A JOURNAL FOR 10 PLANTS IS HARD. SORRY, AM I YELLING?!
QB Group Shot:
I can see why it’s been a while since since your last update, busy lady . I can’t keep up with my 3 plants and 2 journals
I’ll be waiting on some photographic evidence
@GreenJewels some evidence posted above.
The ladies are looking great BTB. How did you determine that true bloom started on 2/6.
For autos, I mark the date of first pistils, then once those pistils start forming actual buttons I mark that as day one of bloom.
Wow that bloody skunk 2 is showing it’s dark side. I want to grow a purple strain one of these days. Very cool looking. You ain’t a kidding, Daiquiri lime and Green crack are crazy bushy. Looking good, thanks for the update pics:v:
Dang Blue Cheese is getting fat, Very nice. I’m loving that fastberry color. She’s going to smoke nice.
