Growing it

Normal

Resistance

Strong

So I ran 3 Blackberry's in total. The seeds were started in a staggered pattern. I was running into soil related issues at the beginning of the grow season, I think I have the issues pretty much worked out now, but these girls suffered through all of it, unfortunately. I got some lovely colors on the plants, really beautiful. But the bud quality in the end just wasn't there. I'll give the Blackberry a try again down the road once I'm more confident I have my soil issues under control. Until then, I learned a lot and nothing will go to waste, trust me! :+1:

I like this stuff

I'm still not sure if it helps, but it does not hurt.

Must have!

I didn't really use CalMag from Blue Planet, they just came up on the list. But the plants did seem to like CalMag added to their routine

I'm still not sure if it helps, but it does not hurt.

So I have harvested the 3rd FastBuds BlackBerry as well as the Barneyโ€™s Farm NYC Diesel Auto. The Blackberry was very loose and airy with not much density to the buds. Made it difficult to trim without just putting 90% in the trim pile. I had a taste of one of the buds from Blackberry #2 and she was much fruitier/sweeter than this one is. I can still taste some sweetness in #3, but she also tastes bit more harsh than I remember from #2. I yielded 16 gr from the 3rd plant and never weighed the first two, they just went straight to my edibles pile, but Iโ€™ll guess they may have yielded another 16 gr combined, which would total 32 gr for 3 plants.

Grow Questions
DudeGrowsWeed week 12 started grow question 7 months ago
Read a good book over the weekend "Marijuana Cultivation Reconsidered: The Science and Techniques For Huge Indoor Yields" by Read Spear. (read some bad ones too that I won't mention). Any recommendations for good books on cannabis? Looking forward to your answers. Thanks!

I have a small collection - but I am partial to the cannabis bibles 2nd and 3rd editions + the cannabis breeder's bible.... and anything by ed rosenthal will be useful...
DudeGrowsWeed week 13 started grow question 6 months ago
I have not been using CO2 but EVERY book I read recommends using it, Iโ€™m not prepared to go out and buy a CO2 tank, regulator, etcโ€ฆ at this time. Has anyone ever used one of those CO2 bags? Or do you have any DIY CO2 solutions you can recommend?

Two parts yeast, one part water in a Ten gallon bucket will eventually make enough co2 for a 4x4, diy co2 is cheap and does work but you do need to go big and go bigger than you think lol, but folks over estimate the effectiveness of these "exhale" bags by a lot... And no one calculates how efficient their exhaust is... I actually used tnb in my grow... Wasn't bad at all, co2 definitely helps especially during veg, but only those plants kind of close to the co2 because I had a 1300m3/h exhaust fan going... Co2 is a yes in my books, and I'm not convinced it's a "limiting factor" that it only works when everything is perfect, it does help regardless

@JayBloom562, No I am not associated with the DGC at all. But I do love their podcast and also love the Recharge.

I started here on GD a couple of weeks before I found out about DGC. Iโ€™ve considered changing my username but in over a year youโ€™re only the second person to ask.
