Been a busy week with the holidays, but now I'm back in action!
The Amherst Sour Diesel looks like she's going to be the Comeback Queen of this grow. Was by no means the largest or most vigorous at any point before the flip, but since then she's been taking off! Extremely healthy vegetation and a "decent" Sour smell thus far (anyone know the genetic backstory of this strain? Is it an S1 of the clone)?
Seedsmans SK1 also impresses, it's been stacking on super thick, not tall or stretchy at all, so I think she will make some dense rocky nugs.
The Chocolope has apparently taken Sour's spot as the unhappy, finicky plant of the bunch. She just seems really sensitive to nutes. Can't tell if she's burning slightly, or getting deficient and yellowing too fast, but she's been yellowing, spotting, and drying out at the bottom-most fan leaves, underneath the canopy (I think it's burn because I first noticed 4 weeks ago when I topped off all the pots with a little more soil). I am hoping it's really just resource adjustments and her being picky in early flower, as the tops of all nodes still look lush and green, she's stacking on wonderfully, and doesn't seem too bothered otherwise, but I'll be watching her to make sure. Funny thing is, she is DEFINITELY the most frosty of all the girls at this stage, even showing trich formation on her fan leaves! Maybe it's correlated, maybe she's just going extra hard for that dank of the year award?
The Blue Dream has an AMAZING smell. Blueberry muffins on the nose, it's insane. I am honestly anticipating her flavor more than the others so far. She's the healthy perky girl she's been her whole life cycle. And her pistils are coming in purple also, so bonus!
Speaking of purple pistils, the Purple Trainwreck is doing the same. Her fans are also blackening out more each week, which could be indicative of her purpling out completely, we'll see!
The 707 Headband remains pretty consistent. No fancy colors or other hoopla, she's just greening out and budding out. Her stank is actually MORE Sour than the ASD, and heavily so, pretty excited about that as well.
I had to go out of town for new year's weekend, so I set up some Blumat Juniors to auto-water for a few days. They afforded me three days and when I came back, the girls were not hungry or stressing. I may continue to use them, depending on how lazy I get, but it's good to know that there are emergency options to handle watering when going out of town!
Lots of pics going up, if you guys have any feedback or anything else you wanna know at this stage of the grow, lemme know.
