Day 57: I had to go away again this week, at a very critical time. I've matched her coloring symptoms to a copper deficiency as shown on GWE. However, am also seeing purple leaves in other diaries. Not really worried since flowers are visibly bulking.

Anticipating the 9th week, I've decided to top her off with tap water without adding any more nutes. There should be enough fan leaves to power her through the final week.

Day 63: A number of fan leaves are nearing end of life, turning yellow and purple at the same time. Trichomes are still shooting outward without toppling over, but are still milky white/clear and void of any amber. There is considerable marbling on all colas, you can see pockets of frost tucked underneath the swollen calyxes. Shades of pink are starting to express itself on a few sugar leaves and calyxes, eventually taking a deeper purple. So beautiful, am wanting a 1000x zoom.

Most of the brown pistils have not curled inwards. Feels like she needs to go the full 10 weeks, if anything there'll be more purple and reds.

Smell is floral, overripe citrus, mangoes, bruised apricots.

20 - 25% THC? :grimacing::facepunch::grin:

Should I grow 12 colas in a 2x4 space with 300W equivalent LEDs? Nodes 1 3 5?

I think it would be better to try to keep the size around 2x3 to make sure you get enough light intensity to all the buds. The bud density will suffer if there isn't enough light. You would probably have to add a second light to supplement your 300 watt to get enough light to do a 2x4.

Do you guys know any tricks to get my plant to grow taller? Goal is to increase space in between nodes. I've tried raising the LEDs to 30 inches for a few days. Also tried leaving it in complete darkness for 24 hours.

Hi @NASATrainer! What makes plants stretch: 1/ dark cycles, you can increase your night duration up to 14 hours with 10 hours of light, 2/ nitrogen, you could add some more Nitrogen during the stretch phase, but be careful not to over-do, a plant stunted with Nitrogen during flowering will result in weird buds or 'the claw'. 3/ plant-to-lamp distance, increasing this value should result in vertical growth, as the plant will look for more light. Hope this will help, keep us updated and happy growing! :facepunch:

Any ideas what is causing some pistils to turn brown and crisp on my lower bud sites? Especially the ones in the middle of the crater. Taller bud sites not affected, and leaves are healthy.

Hi there @NASATrainer your plants are fine the browning off of pistils is a completely normal occurence and will continue as the buds mature. If they were all to suddenly change colour then you could have experienced pollination but I don't beleive it's the case with your your plants. Best of luck with the grow Mate
NASATrainer week 18 started grow question 2 weeks ago
Purple leaves -- copper deficiency due to pH falling below 5.0 for a few days? Or natural color coming out due to light and age? Thoughts?

I think she is beautiful! Looks like she is reaching the end of her life cycle fading out nicely. The leaves are heavy on nitrogen though. I would cut all of the nitrogen out of the feed if you havent already. Looks like she is close and going to be some killer smoke.

She's Marvellous! I just embarked on a journey with this very same strain...I hope to enjoy this poetry of colors too! With this mainly Sativa strains you harvest a bit earlier, with few clear trichomes for a more Sativa's high (psychedelic, euphoric), the later you harvest the more of a body stone, couch-lock effect you get. Bet ya knew it already...but maybe someone passing by will like the hint.
Lovely jobbly! She's AMMMMAzing!!!! I'm drooling worse than my LAb, LOL! Enjoy, you deserved it!

@Sweet_Seeds, You're right, still a lot of glassy trichomes. Looking like 10 weeks and some. It will give more time for the gorilla to come out. Cheers!

@NASATrainer, I still see some transparent trichomes. Or is it the flash?

Also, it depends on the effect you are looking for.

@Sweet_Seeds, Must be exciting to see hobbyists growing your strain. Do you think my girl will benefit from another week of flower?
