Growing it

Easy

Resistance

Strong

so i've had the weekend to sample the big blue dream's delights. her fruity bouquet is developing and hints of blueberry are certainly evident.

effects wise - tolerance obviously plays a part but i can function throughout the day - a lovely head high with zero hint of paranoia. music is enhanced and another important effect - it makes me damn horny to the point my missus now refers to me as "the pest!"

The proof of the pudding........was a little late in adding feed so had to play catch up with a couple of deficiencies. Doesn't appear to have affected yield too much. :grin:

Just used their magne cal product. Will be switching to a pure cal/mag product on the next grow.

Day 84 and the blue lady is down.....i repeat....the blue lady is down.....trichomes at 10% amber so decision made easy.

Drying in brown paper bags [roni size stylee!]. No wet weight so dry yield will be established in 5-7 days time with smoke report to follow.

------------------------------------------------------------------

Update - buds dried in the paper bags for 5 days and are now jarred up into 3 x 5 litre jars and the bonsai in a 1.5 litre.

The large lady weighed in at 8.11 oz and the bonsai 0.63 oz making a combined weight of 8.74 oz - not bad considering she was growing alongside a mexican airlines in a very cramped space up until week 10 of the grow - which yielded 4.72 oz! [combined - 13.46 oz!!!]

No smoke report as it'll be a few weeks before I actually try it - will report back like a good lad once that's been rectified! :yum:

I have nothing but praise for the Fast-Buds crew. Great genetics and fantastic customer service.

-------------------------------------------------------------------

In terms of the grow this lady was a delight - very forgiving of a number of skoolboy errors, the primary one being the delayed feeding of nutes which displayed itself at week 5. Once rectified there didn't appear to be any longlasting damage. Perhaps I could have yielded more but hey no complaints from me.

Lolipopping and defol methods were employed and to the benefit of the grow I'd surmise - great air circulation and great light penetration too.

I've yet to try the fruit - nearly 3 weeks into the cure so I'll probably leave it for another 3 before I investigate the taste and effect. [The bouquet is developing and hints of blueberry / fruit are already evident.]

Will report back in a few weeks time....or I'll try to dependent on the effects!

Grow Questions
Harry_Kovert week 6 started grow question 3 months ago
Solution to height - supercropping, I am thinking, is the only answer? [ or......how close to the lights can the plant get - currently 14" from the LEDs.]
Plant Too Tall

Hey there Harry, To control for space, the best is supercropping, second best is HST, and third best is LST. But in my personal opinion starting LST now would harm your yield as would HST and supercropping. Usually you want to have all these interventions planned while the plant is still in veg. Especially for an auto like mexican airlines that stiffens up pretty rapidly. Next time for HST what you do is you bend the lateral branches until they start to give off a sound, in this way the branch is not broken so the plant recovers faster and the height is controlled. I think you should run this grow without training because i noticed that autos once they're ready, if you f with them they will not be happy at all. You LEDs are fine, the plant can get real close to these with little harm, but honestly, only you can say for sure. Do that "hand test", that means measure the distance between the light and your hand and leave it there with the lights on, if it starts to be uncomfortable then it's too close to the plant at that distance. theoretically you could get as close as 8 inches. Plenty of space for your healthy plants ! Hope this helps ! :rocket:

Reddening of leaves quite prevelent at top of plant. Think it might be a PK deficiency. Question being - is it too late to add a PK booster at this stage of flowering? [Or will I have to ride it out?] Thanks, Harry

Hey looks like she is just starting to ripen up and her natural fall colors are coming out. I dont think it is anything to worry about.

@Zollies_zn,

What a stoner I am Z-Man....and I've not even tried the blue lady yet!

Thanks a heap bro - yeah the grow can be quite emotional - I find I have a lttle dip in mood after harvest - the joys of just observing growth through flower are suddenly removed......not that it lasts long!

Another couple of weeks and I ought to have a smoke report......that is unless this lady knocks me down!

Thank you Z-Man....and thank you again!

A sexy mofo fo shizza. :grin:

Any attachment on my part is diluted by the desire to get the job done, get the nugs dried and have it all jarred up. Only then am I able to relax! [the realities of UK city growing!]

Beauty of GD is that I'll be able to return to the journal and marvel at her multitude of autumnal colours anytime I fancy.

Ought to be jarred up by next Thursday so facts, figures and a detailed grow report to follow shortly after.
