She looks great! I hope my chocodope (chocolope auto) looks that pretty. Since its got so much sativa in its genetics id be surprised if she doesnt really start to stretch and have a major growth spurt
I considered SCROGing this one, but I got lazy and I really wanted to see one nice big cola. I’m really surprised at how short and bushy she’s growing since Chocoloupe is an almost pure sativa. So far, I wouldn’t have much to SCROG.
Yeah, I keep thinking the same thing. I expect her to really shoot up in height so I keep raising the lights, but she’s still so tight and bushy. My last Chocoloupe did the same thing and I thought it was stunted because she was a twin seed, but now I’m not so sure. Maybe this is just how they grow?
My Choc also started squat but has shot up/stretched as she flowered. I’m scrogging. Latest photo from today is here on my journal.
Wow, she’s beautiful!
Mine stayed fairly short and bushy as well. I thought maybe she was root bound in the 5 gallon pot. I replanted her into a 10 gallon pot two weeks ago, and then put her under the net last week, and now she has really taken off.
I have been reading along and I might say you are the perfectionist when it comes to feedings, do you normally feed and then let her dry out and then water until next weeks feeding? Just curious because you have exactly what I use too. @raustin keep up the amazing photos too I love them!
Lol, I am a bit anal when it comes to feedings, and I do exactly what you said. I like to let them dry out during the week and I never get any complaints, but when I water it’s a thorough drenching till i get runoff. I do that every so often, more of an art than a science which is why I don’t bother putting it in my journal. She just tells me when she needs some extra H2O and I give it to her straight from the tap, no Ph-ing cause my NYC tap is a hard 7.0 and helps raise the soil Ph which is always too low.
Did I make any sense just now? Sorry, I’m a little stoned on my last harvest.
makes sense to me. I actually pre-jug my water and let it sit out for 24 hours and i let the chlorine evaporate, and I usually have 7.0ph too i always check im that anal. @raustin
Lol, being a little anal is good when growing weed.
OMG I’m In Love

She got a good, thorough watering today 'cause she really needed it. Pulled down more giant fan leaves, but the best part is she’s showing her first signs of flower.
She’s really starting to show off her beautiful girlish figure too.
And definitely starting to stretch.
So now that she’s well into flowering she needs much more attention when it comes to watering. I’m noticing she’s drying out much more quickly now probably because the humidity is not as high as I would like, but she’s doing ok.
yes, she does look lovely @raustin !!
@Rick3, I’m determined to get your babies looking like this.
Beautiful girl you have!
Thank you, everyone! She does turn heads, doesn’t she?

So, last night the inline fan died, but I ordered another one and it should be here tomorrow – thank God for Amazon Prime! The temperature is fine at 78°F, but I can smell her.
Here she is in all her splendor…
She’s sprouting buds everywhere!
This is the top cola to be…
Looking bushy green and beautiful @raustin
She looks great!
