Big Lemon needs a stronger dose of calcium in her next feeding. I normally dont have nutrient probs but ive never had to feed a plant this big and hungry :hushed:

Grow Questions
Bossy_Marmalade week 11 started grow question 3 years ago
Any one out there running NFTGs nutrient line? Is this claw from cal deficiencies??
Resolved
Leaves. Curl down
Mrs_Larimar answered grow question 3 years ago
Clawing can have alot of Reasons, overwatering, underwatering, and Nitrogen excess. for not knowing how much nutes you use, i cant say no more to you. If you add pictures in natural light and your feeding schedule ican say more

@Bossy_Marmalade
You know how to grow!
It seems crazy that no one has commented yet on what may be @growdiaries biggest indoor plant ever!
Maybe because blurple light pictures are hard to look at. Add white light when taking pics and people will love this!!
Kudos to you and @philosopherseeds! Makes me want to buy those seeds, and I haven’t bought seeds in years cuz I breed my own.

Great growing! Great use of side lighting... I might start using that idea. Looking forward to following your grow. Oh, what nutes are you using?

NFTG liquid bone meal. From my understanding, molasses feeds the microbes in the soil, not necessarily the plant. I amended the soil with myco and bacteria, and feed in twice per month.

@800peace,

I saw your nutes, What liquid bone meal do you use? is it hydrolyzed? fyi the molasses molecule is super super huge rock to the stomata of the root system, thus your soil will take like 3 weeks to break it down. However, by introducing Microbe Life Photosynthesis Plus and/or SLF-100 you can break down large molecules. That said, I recommend ditching the molasses all together as it doesnt work. Thats an old growers trick from the 70s. In chemistry, we have moved beyond these techniques that simply plump up plants with sugar/carb weight that is lost in drying process.Instead, it is wiser to build up the plant cell walls (ie every part of the plant structure including buds) with an element like calicum which is not mobile within the plant and contributes to denser, more potent bud bc the plant can actually use calcium to build cell walls. Sugar does nothing.

Thanks for taking a peak, @Mrs_Larimar! Yea with that light its hard to tell by the leaf tips that the plant is eating itself :weary: She took some damage since then, lots of necrosis so gave her a good trim. Things are looking better now, ill post an update vid soon, hopefully with more white light

Breeding is easy. And you don’t have to give up all of your seedless bud to do it.
ID a male who looks robust. Remove him to another room and wait a few days for his sacs to open.
Collect pollen on a swab.
Turn off fans in the flower tent so the air is still.
Selectively, carefully pollinate one branch of a girl by gently dabbing her pistils with pollen. Wrap it loosely in a light weight, white fabric to minimize further pollination. Twist tie where the fabric gathers.
Turn fans back on
Allow her to finish. Really finish. Pick the other flowers as you wish, remove the fabric and let this branch continue.
When she has dried up and looks about dead, your seeds are ready.
I get about 200 seeds from a pollinated cola using this method.
Spray the tent wet before starting the next grow.

An outdoor plant left to be completely pollinated delivers on average 3000 seeds.

Hey thanks for taking a look @growdoctordc, and for leaving a super positive comment. I just joined this community and i'm real excited to share my progress and hard work. Youre right about the light tho, ill look into that.
I have only been growing for 3 or 4 years now, but what I lack in experience I make up for in research abilities. Learning about cannabis is awesome, and breeding seems like the logical next step.

Thurns out, Big Lemon up there ate up everything in her little 5gal pot, so its basically a soilless medium and she's eating me out of house and home! lol but I love her and she will definitely be worth it. Still a month and a half to go! isnt it weird that the smallest plant in the video is the same seed and breeder, and was planted on the very same day as Big Lemon.
