Growing it
Easy
Resistance
Strong
Tested a side branch yesterday. Wasn't dry at all but the effect was ok. Needed a bit more stuff but I will report later with the final product. Now I can tell more about smoking her. I did fermantation in a cigar humido for 8 weeks. A neighbour of mine cadged a bit off the stuff from me. A few days later he told me that it was the best weed he had in the last 12 years 😵 That was a honor for me cause I smoked weed only 2 times in my life before! My first experience was frightening. My neighbour ringed the bell after my joint. 5 mins later I laid on the couch, happy to had enough time to show him the door. I got relly dizziness, fear of falling on the floor. Than I had 2 veeeeeeeery long hours off panic and scare of death. Heart was beating like a drum and no control to my body. I got a really dry mouth, fear to dry out. Drinking was really a problem. I got vibrating arms, hands and fingers. After that trip I thought I will never do that again 😂 But one week later I did it with much less weed. And that was the point I fell in love to smoke her 😍Now I need really a lot off stuff to feel really good. Maybe I developed a resistance 😱 But my neighbour is still happy if he can get a bit of her 😜 The high is really relaxing and pressing you into the couch. But I like that! With a few beer in the evening I can sleep like a marmot Maybe I need a stronger (more THC) strain next time but taste and effect of the dwarf is wonderful!💤

Nutrients
In this soilless environment I was a little bit late measuring cal-mag and add that stuff. I will try a mix of soil and soiless substrate next grow. I don't recommend soiless medium for beginners. Essentially to measure EC and PH I think. So I try a little bit soil in the next grow to avoid this stress 😜 My nuts were older than one year. Maybe they weren't good at all. Try the BioBizz stuff with new bottles next time.

It was time to harvest today. After 18h in darkness she had to take off her clothes 😍 173g wet weight like she is on the photos. I removed 2 side branches for testing the last 10 days so it was a bit more mass. Looking forward to the dried weight. I hope I can reach at least 40g with her. 1st lady in Lechuza pon granulate only had 66 g wet weight as it is on the photo. Not the best yield 😭 Day 82: Dry weight 1st: 21g, 2nd 52g without stems. I decided to do a fermantation in a cigar humidor on the second one. I hope it will be finished in 8 weeks. The humidor was cleaned with lobe with pure water. To regulate the humidity I put in a container with salt soaked with 10 ml pure water and a few drops of propylene glycol to avoid mold. Humidity should be between 65 and 70%. Now it's 75%. I have a look on it 😱0

Your plants are fine brother ! They aren't suffering from anything . The main thing you wanna focus on when they are young like that is not over watering them . Your starting PH in a soiless mix in my opinion should be 6.1 6.2 and you would gradually move it up to 6.3 or 6.4 this will ensure that your plant will not suffer from nutrient lock outs . I can see that you are folliar spraying your plants although this is good for them I wouldn't do it every day I would do it every 3 days or so , reason being is that when they are young like that a lot of what they absorb is through the leaves , so do it sparingly when young like that so you avoid over watering issues . As they get a little bit older you can add a rooting stimulate like piranha or voodoo juice (anything like those products is fine don't have to be those ones) a chelation agent ( humic / fulvic acids) and very very very light dose of which ever Veg solution you have chosen . If you do these things you will have no problems in the veg cycle and you will have wonderful healthy plants . I hope I've helped a little bit :)

Height is over rated. What you want is an even canopy; that been said, the stretch will pick up its pace during the 2nd week of flowering. Now lights, your grow space is 60*60 (4 sq ft) for LED lights, you need between 30 to 40 watts per sq ft, in this case 150 watts puts you at 37.5 watts / sq ft, so I don't recommend more light, but if you can get away with it, get the lights closer, that will certainly help the plant, as long as the temperature at canopy level is appropriate; keep in mind that getting the light closer increases the intensity of light dramatically for the plant. Since you are using a soiless media, I would add some form of cal / mag additive, just enough to get 0.5 EC (250 PPM) as a base water (0.5 to 1 cc per liter should do, depending on your water EC/PPM). Also up the biogrow to 2 cc/lt and start adding bio-bloom as soon as you see the first flowers (2 cc / lt should do for starters).

With my cocktail for 2nd lady I reach an EC of 580 ppm. Is that enough or should I gain nutrients? It seems she stopped growing into height. Should I do something against that? What is a good amount of cal/mag in the water?

OutForRealanswered grow question 5 years ago
Hello ! At that stage in soilless medium you should already be around 1.5 / 1.7 Ec and the cal mag should represents 0.3 points of Ec which mean that with a tap water at 0.3 Ec you add cal mag until 0.6 is reached then you go to 1.5/1.7 by mixing your nutrients. So to answer your question : yes you need to add more nuts. And you can't do anything to make her gain more height as the stretch is now almost done so until harvest the gain of height will not be up to 5cm. I hope it will help you 😁👍

They're about to triple in size, mine looked a lot like yours in week 5 and it went from 23 cm to 60 in a week . Also I wouldn't do bloom fertilizers yet, it's going to be another week or too to actually flower, you have preflowers. They still need the nitrogen for their stretch

@growdoctordc, I really like seeing them express themselves I their own way too. Makes the plants feel more... Alive

@Alpaca, You raise a point I have meant to address for a while, and I’m prompted now. I both thank you and apologize for having selected your post as an example of how one’s experience is one’s experience only, and we should be careful to then extrapolate “This is what happened to me, so this is what’s going to happen to you”. Every grow... every grower will have a unique experience due to all the variables, even when using identical seeds or clones. Maybe these plants will triple in size. Maybe not. It’s hard to speculate accurately how another grow will develop based upon a personal experience. And I find that one of the most fascinating aspects of cannabis. It has a strong personality of its own!

@howie03, You'll see friend, mine showed preflowers since week 4 but it only started really flowering late in week 6. I saw your close up, those are the first preflowers.

Your lady nr 1 is looking as if she has wet roots/ rootproblems, the second is looking very nice. Both got a very nice shape, wonderful dwarf do you have little black flies in your room=?

@Mrs_Larimar, Thank you 😊 I hope I will not overfeed my 2nd lady. She's developing very nice! There appear some light green dots/areas on some of the leaves of the main cola. Is that normal? (pic 40: 2nd lady main cola)

@howie03,but they look great... dont care about a few tips^^. brown tips normally is N excess but its not actual its an old damage

@Mrs_Larimar, Now 1st lady doesn't look droopy any more. I think I have overwatered her. Some tips are getting brown and google says that could be one cause. It's not easy to find out if there is enough water in the granulate because it's very heavy. Maybe it's not the best medium for the plant but we will see.

Don't worry about a few leaves at the bottom yellowing and dying. The plant does that because those leaves weren't getting enough light. My big girls both lost about 6 leaf sets at the bottom

he is looking good and healthy. The has good Disatance between the Nodes. And yes you can give her more LIght... but the 150 watt should be enoughfor only one plant. Yes LST is a good thing. Most Automatics respond very well on it. I wont top her.. its alwys adecision how well does a plant grow, and i dont see her as aTopping candidate. Youve choosen good genetics from RQS. She wont be a giant, but if you treat her nice she will give you a good yield. here are some RQS dwarf grows that are spectacular. Have a look ( dont remember the grower atm) If you want to do LST start now .. you will have atime-window for 10-14 days to do it
