Growing it




Drying in progress.

I decided to sacrifice some weed for an early smoke report (and well, curiosity too!), used the microwave method. I took a medium-developed bud and fried it, so it lost the flavour and most of potency and rolled a cigarette sized blunt. Tasted bad (surprise) but the potency is crazy. An underdeveloped bud is supposed to be weaker, really does not feel like only 13% THC. I cannot wait to try a dried, cured bud!

No complains. Good grow light and very affordable too!


Good tent but I did not realise it could accomodate 2 plants maximum... My bad really, top quality product.
The only issue is the location of the intake fan slot, it is at the top of the tent, opposite to extractor slot. Nothing that can't be fixed with a bit of ducting though.

Commented by PenguHB PenguHB

Forced harvest of one plant as I noticed bud rot on 2 major colas. Definitely a humidity issue, it was WAY above acceptable level (between 60 and 70%). Such shame... Harvested 185g of decent looking stuff, 21g of underdeveloped buds and sadly threw away about 40g of very good looking stuff.

Other two plants still going for a few days. Next grow will definitely need a dehumidifier.

Grow Questions
PenguHB week 2 started grow question 2 months ago
Compacted plants?
I am currently on day 17 and the plants don't seem to grow very bushy - they have plenty of leaves, but they seem very compacted and not very tall. Using 2-1-2 NPK. Any suggestions guys?

Your plants look good. I find that growth is usually slow in the beginning. The sprout will emerge. Then set it's first pair of true leaves and then they often take a pause for 5-7 days. Then after the pause they grow at a moderate rate until they have set 4 or 5 nodes. Then after that the growth rate often speeds up.

I avoid tying plants up unless it is absolutely necessary. If I do I tie them, I will tie very loosely and have a fan blowing gently over them so they get bumped around which helps force the plant grow a stronger stem.

LST - am I doing it right?
I figured I could try training my plant by LST and since I am very new to this and generally don't want to kill my ladies could you please comment on the way I have done it? Plants held with plastic coated paper clips, because I am lazy but creative :) Also is it safe?

Do not worry. You can not kill your plant with LST. That's why they call it "low stress" since it is easy on the plant. And... your ladies are looking good.

I usually try to tie the lower part of the stem to be vertical and bend it horizontally above the first or second node. This leaves the 1st & 2nd nodes to be pulled to the open side of your pot and away from the main part of the plant. Then I start tying longer branches down so they grow horizontally. I want to get the plant spread out and all the branch ends at the same height. Then when they flower and stretch the bulk of my training begins, making sure to give good light and air to each bud site.

Flowering tips
I think my plants are starting to flower or they will soon. Pistils visible on main stem and all side branches. This is an auto strain, so technically I can keep the lights on 18/6 schedule. Is that a good idea or should I stick with traditional 12/12? Any comments welcome.

Keep your lights on your current 18/6 schedule. Your plants will want to soak in the light. More light, bigger buds. But rest is also important- so no pushing them 24/0 or 20/4.

With the amount of pistols you are seeing I’d say they are officially in flower, just the beginning. Enjoy the ride :seedling:

What is happening to my plant?
Wilting, dried leaves, yellow spots on leaves. Any idea what this could be?

Looks like a nutrient lock out coupled with over heating and possible PM??? How is the airflow? Feeding autos at 1/4 strength?

General flowering advice
What is the best time to harvest?
What if lower branches are not quite ready yet, can I harvest gradually?
When should I stop feeding the plants?
When do the buds get large?
Please comment and advise as much as possible.
This strain should be ready in 56-63 days, seed to weed.

Best practice is to harvest when your plant is ready. There are so many environmental factors that dictate speed of growth a d ripening.
Flowering usually takes 8 weeks- give or take on such factors.
I like my trichomes milky with a touch of amber. Other people like them heavily amber. All a matter of preference. Make sure you are checking the color of the trichomes as she gets close.
You absolutely can harvest gradually, but you’ll find most people do it in one go. It’s a process. So isn’t the drying. Then the cureing.
Most of my previous grows bulked up massively in their finals two weeks.
I like to feed until trichomes are nearing where I like- then just continue to feed ph’ed water untill there are where I want them.

Sorry to hear about the bud rot! Dehumidifiers are my best friends. Hope you enjoy what you got from her :relaxed:


@PenguHB,Sounds like a great plan! I'll look forward too seeing it! :blush:


@Hydro_Hiebs, I was asking for it... Nice, dense buds and very high humidity don't really like each other. Now that I know what's what, my next grow will hopefully be better :)

Happy harvest hope you enjoy your smoke :heart::fire:

Hi growmie, have to say that was a really good grow:+1: especially considering it was your first.
You got some good kit there with the light and the tent and it looks like you learned plenty, which will help with your next grow. There is always more to learn about this amazing plant :+1:

Enjoy your harvest friend! (Don't put too much in the microwave :joy::sweat_smile:)

Would love to here how she actually tastes after abit of curing. Might get a couple of these seeds myself

Peace :v::sunglasses:
