At 95 days from seed, 40 days into bloom, she is still drinking about 2 liters (1/2 gal) per day. I am noticing new pistils being made on buds that otherwise look 3 weeks away from being ready to harvest. They were mostly observed on the highest parts of the highest kolas. This is probably a sign of light stress as it only the parts closest to the light. As I noted, my canopy height isn't very uniform. There is 8-10" of difference between the top of my highest kola and the top of my lowest kola that I wouldn't consider popcorn bud. I raised the light up so it was 16" above the highest kola. This means that its 24" to the lowest. Before I raised up my light, it was probably less than 12" from it to the highest kola. Not ideal but that is the result of not using a SCROG screen and my less-than-perfect training. I think I was stressing the highest kolas with light that was too intense. I've seen pictures of seriously deformed kolas before and I'm not that bad yet. I hope the shape of my buds remains typical and new pistil creation stops or slows. The light was probably too close. I don't think I did serious, long-term damage.
At 98 days from seed, 43 days into bloom, she is still drinking about 2 liters (1/2 gal) per day. Not much to report today. She is filling out and looks more and more frosty everyday. Her smell is mild but really nice. The breeder's description of her sweet fruity smell is spot on The buds that were not closest to the light are looking like they are a few weeks from harvest. The buds that were closest to the light still have the new pistils that don't look anywhere close to harvest. It is high summer so temps are slightly higher than I'd like but it is all working out acceptably. Not much to do but keep changing the reservoir, watching her put on weight and waiting.

@DinafemSeeds,
Hi Mark. Thanks! I agree that the buds are getting frosty and sticky! She smells amazing too! When I've check on her to make sure her buds are propped up for the last couple weeks, I have really started to appreciate appreciate how much weight she is putting on here in the back half of flowering. I expect a very bountiful harvest.
Regarding the harvest date, for this website, I marked it as flowering as soon as I switched my light to 12-12. I switched the light 13 days before I saw the beginning of buds though. I usually start counting as soon as I see flowers rather than when I switch the light. I anticipate that the lights will be on 12-12 for ~12 weeks but her real flowering is only going to be 10 weeks. I'm going to be watching her closely from here on . I checked trichomes this morning and they are still mostly clear. I like a little amber in my harvest so I think she has a couple weeks to go for them to get cloudy and then amber.
Thank you Dinafem for these awesome genes! She has been tough and had explosive growth through out. I think her yield is going to be great too! The only thing I don't know yet is the strength and affect of the smoke. As everything else shown in her description on your website has been true though, I am pretty optimistic!
Thanks again for your comment,:smile:
