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 :dizzy_face: 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 :joy: But one week later I did it with much less weed. And that was the point I fell in love to smoke her :heart_eyes:Now I need really a lot off stuff to feel really good. Maybe I developed a resistance :scream: But my neighbour is still happy if he can get a bit of her :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:
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!:zzz:

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 :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:
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 :heart_eyes:

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 :sob:

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 :scream: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 :)

What do you think? More or less light?
Anything other things to do?

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?

OutForReal answered grow question 4 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 :grin::+1:

How much do you think you'll end up with dry weight? Congrats!

@Jondalar, Hi! I think around 50g for 2nd lady and only 20g for 1st lady (granulate) :relieved:
