Growing it

Normal

Resistance

Strong

Edit after curing: this lady turned out to be rocket fuel! For a plant that had no real smell making her the queen of incognito for closet growers I watched it destroy about 5 friends that tried it out. I can’t wait to put her to the test on my NFT hydro system to see how much I can get her to grow under the quantum boards.

Once this lady started having issues she was nearly impossible to keep on track. Due to early life she was short and compact but that was my fault. Maybe it was that particular pheno and she was very leafy within the flower. Around week 2 the balance of cal mag and water intake was very challenging. She has a very earthy smell to her and and as promised by Dinafem the amount of and diameter of the flowers were outstanding. I’m definitely going to try again with the new setup because I know I can do better with this one! I won’t have a dry weight for about 7-10 days.

Grow Questions
ThatoneAKguy week 5 started grow question 3 years ago
2.5 weeks into flower and her leaves are yellowing in a way I haven’t seen before as if it’s from the inside out??? The past few days she has slowed in stretch and growth? Soil based and half organic nectar for the gods nutes. been let to dry out between watering. Posting photos.

Sorry brother just saw this today. Your question must have gotten pushed back especially if there was a lot of people asking questions. Who ever told you it was a potassium issue guessed wrong. If it was potassium the edges of the blades would be browning and the leaves would start to curl and become brittle by now. Looks more like a zinc deficiency issue possibly a boron deficiency or both. Pretty unusual. Its typically due to having a ph above 6.5. Another possibility is an excess of phosphorus can cause this type of lockout also. Your in a state of "nutrient lock" this is why your buds aren't bulking up. I would give her a light flush with 2-2.5 gallons of ph correct water in the 5.9-6.3 range. Add nutes back into the last quart or half gallon. Check the ph of the runoff the first time you run water through her this will give you a better idea if the ph of the soil is higher or lower than what your putting in. Also if you have a TDS meter see what the ppm is of the runoff. It wouldn't surprise me if it was pretty high. Let her dry out a bit more than usual after your flush. Hope this will get her back on track you still have enough time for those buds to fill in. I'll follow your grow. Good luck.

@ThatoneAKguy, mine is outdoor so I need some sunny days ;)

@CoastGrower, here’s what I’ve deduced in growing autos. They need the best of everything to be a big yielder. It takes a few times to figure it out too. The common denominator is that you can stall them with over watering and of nutrients. It’s real easy to push them too far trying to give more. Always keep the nutrients low 1/2 or less and if you have a good light keep it far away if you want it to stretch. The stretch spaces out their nodes and gives you the potential for more flowering but without great lighting that will never happen and you will get whispy buds. So it’s better to have them dense and dank on the short stick. My new NFT has some crazy growth and we’ll see in about 3 weeks if it’s going to pay off or not. Check it out. It’s insane.

Nice to see another Moby Dick XXL harvest on the grow diary platform:+1:

Congratulations on the harvest my friend and thank you for the great diary :facepunch:

Have you tried our Moby Dick XXL? Or are the flowers still dry and curing?

We would love your thoughts on this Dinafem girl when the time comes :ok_hand:

Until then enjoy your hard earned harvest :facepunch:

All the best :v:

@DinafemSeeds, Hi Mark, how come my XXL is only just about to flip at 7 weeks but this grow has buds already at five? Do they take longer to mature if they can grow bigger roots?

@ThatoneAKguy, I can't believe my XXL auto is 7 weeks and only looks to be flipping now, prolly gonna be another two weeks before there's any flowers at all.

@DinafemSeeds, Hi Mark! I’ve got it jar curing right now and will probably let it go for a few weeks just to get the best out of it and let the chlorophyll break down. She has a very mild and earthy smell to her but was covered in trichomes of which were 75% hazy which is a personal preference so I’m sure it’ll finish a project then vacuum the house when you’re done type of flowers ;)
