I have not updated for about two months. Been super busy with uni finals etc, but it's time to pick this up again.

Tangerine Dream and CBD Lemon Potion harvest was somewhere around June 10th. Very disappointing yield, expected to at least get something decent from the Tangerine Dream, but buds were not compact at all and effect was weak. To be fair this was a bit of an experiment, growing autoflowers in a windowsill in the Dutch climate during May-June so I won't blame it on the seeds or strains. Let's just say the experiment failed. I'll add pictures of previous weeks to week 15.

Liberty Haze and Laughing Buddha are still going strong and are outside fulltime now in 52L root bags. Weather has been pretty rainy the last couple of days and nights are pretty cold, going around 13-15°C (55-59°F) but they will just have to put up with it.
A friend of mine had some left over LED grow lights so I put the Laughing Buddha under those for about 2 weeks right as I moved the Liberty Haze outside. Liberty started growing like crazy as the weather was pretty great but Laughing Buddha didn't really grow much at all so I moved her outside after just under two weeks. She started growing right after that but is still short and has pretty thin branches, especially compared to the Liberty Haze.
It's kind of hard to see in the pictures, but the Laughing Buddha doesn't seem to root very well in it's bigger pot. You can still clearly see the older soil from the 3L pot separating from the rest of the soil. I've put a bunch of soil on top to cover the gap, but it keeps coming back somehow. Figured it might be because I was moving her around to keep her in full sunlight but I've kept her in one spot for at least 2 weeks now and I can stil see the cracks in the soil.

Topped Liberty Haze on 11th of July at 85 CM because she is about to grow over the fence that's keeping her out of sight of the rest of my neighbourhood. Growing cannabis isn't illegal here as long as I have 5 plants or fewer (I have 2) but if some grumpy neighbour calls about the smell or whatever, police will still remove and destroy the plants. Smell is getting stronger now, you can smell it as soon as you walk onto the roof terrace.

I have done quite a bit of defoliation on the Libert Haze because the fan leaves were huge and I wanted better lighting and airflow because temps can get pretty high on my roof terrace. Also took some clones. I won't be using them as I only grow outdoor so I only have one grow per year but I wanted to see if I could make them root.

Grow Questions
Sauswaus week 5 started grow question 7 months ago
Cant find pH section. Leaf edges are burnt. Working on a student budget, had to postpone buying pH meter. Local tabwater is 7,03 - 7,74 according to internet. Ill be adjusting pH starting Thursday. Can I go to 6.0 straight away or should I go down in steps of say 0.2 to adapt
Leaves Leaf Edges Appear Burnt

Go straight down man, no need to do it gradually. You can also use baking Sosa to raise ph and lemon juice to lower it.
Sauswaus week 9 started grow question 6 months ago
Lower two sets of fan leaves have gone yellow, leaves on internodes in between haven't changed colour. Not sure what's causing this. Nutes? (3-4 more weeks of time released nutes in soil) Too much water? Did water a bit extra because I wasn't going to be home for a couple of days
Color Yellow Leaves - Lower, older leaves

Hey bro! Looks like Nitrogen diffiency my friend, Nitrogen is mobile so it will gradually move up the plant from bottom to top.. You don't want this, especially in veg. Try to raise your N or use some Bio bizz fish mix or garlic beast as a foliar spray, 2ml per litre is good. A couple of times should do the trick. Keep your Ph between 6.3 and 6.8. Water a couple of times with water at Ph 6.5. Then go back to your normal nute schedule. Only water your plants when dry. You'll be fine :blush:

Happy growing :sunglasses::seedling:
