Hey, dudes, hope you had a nice 4th of July.
Thanks for the responses and support. Sorry I didn’t repond sooner but I’ve had a couple of nasty weeks. The so called “funny bone” nerve in my right elbow had become pinched requiring surgery about a month ago. An outpatient procedure and no big deal right? WRONG! When I went in to get the stitches out a couple of them were torn. How and when/where that happened no one knows big shrug. Anyway as the nurse started pulling the existing stitches the incision started to open up like a zip lock baggie and at the end I’ve got an open wound about 3 inches long. Decision was to ust let it heal that way applying wet to dry dressing twice per day. Long story short the “hole” has continued to open to the point it is now 3" x 2 1/2" and hurts like hell with every bump or pressure it comes in contact. To top it all it’s my right hand. I’ve held an understandable amount of animous for many Islamics since 9/11 but gained a little insight as well over this. If I had been having to wipe my bum with my left hand for 20 - 30 plus years I would be really pissed off with everything, too.
Back to the plant we are talking about here. Really ti has just basically stopped growing. Pics below are from yesterday and “scoping” the flowers indicate that there are now about 1 - 2 amber trichomes out of each10 - 12. There are still 0 nuggs and no real move towards colas forming. The plant is now about 4 feet tall with a stalk as big around as your thumb and many of the leaves are starting to yellow very fast and fall off. If the stalk grows much more it will take a chainsaw to cut it, lol.
Other than what it takes to tote the plant in and out of the house there’s really nothing much to lose;. So I think I’m just going to continue feeding and watering as is until at least 40 - 45% of the trichomes turn amber then harvest unless something changes.
Thanks for looking and all help.
Peace! And Toke On.
