Hey bros, I've been harvesting for the past couple of weeks. I took as it rippened, I hope you can get through the pictures. I had it all on one week because it's more visual to understand I guess. I had 3 batches: first a few light buds, then a second heavy weight champios and for the last the bottom part I've left an extra week of close lights for rippening. I guess they did well for the third part. Unfortunatelly I've just weighted the first batch as 146g wet, and by guessing I would say we got around 450-550g wet.. but let's wait for the final dry weight in a few weeks. They are hanging in my closet with a little help from a friend dehumidifier.

I already smoked a few of the first batch and this thing is just amazing taste, power... I guess it's probably the best smoe I've ever had.

Now, was it the new Advanced Nutrients new line or the main branch that split that got this girl this way? The best one I've grown by far in terms of potency... it's sticky, smelly, delicous and powerfulll!

I can't wait for it to cure for at least two weeks... every day it get's better. And it hits hard even dry-green.

See you in a couple of weeks with the final update!

Thanks for the visits, comments and feedback. We will be back soon with Growing in the amazon #4.

Hey guys, its been like 3 months.. two.. since I wrote this.. and now I can say: BEST SMOKE I'VE EVER HAD! JESUS!

THANKS BARNEY'S FARM!

Thcau, do Brazil!

Nutrients

Amazing nutrients line. It's all people say it is. I was most of the times at 1/4 recommended dosage and I had a few burns at the end only. The taste is amazing and I was only passive flushing at 20% runoff. Let's grow with it again.

Always a good thing for a start...

The buds are drying bud i can truly say it's the best smoke I have ever had. Just amazing.

Hello there, I hope I can help with this one and I do have a link for you that I'll post below, along with a member that defo's on this site.

Firstly if you're to defo, the majority of it should be taken before entering flower. Not 100% necessary, but defo in Veg allows the plant to recover much faster then when she's in bloom. I would do the majority of any defo you need to do a week before flower. When in flower, you can take fan leaves as you please but I would limit how much you take at a time, taking only 2 or 3 at a time, per day until you have what you want. This is all to reduce stress and encourage fast recovery. In veg, take what you want but ensure it's either directly before or after a feeding. The nutrients added will help her rebound much quicker.

Why defo? Mostly to open up the canopy to light and air. Shoots and flowers below a bushy canopy will be under-developed and will probably become LARF (shake). By strategically defo'ing leaves that are blocking potential colas/shoots, we expose to air and light. These shoots will then grow like crazy and roughly match canopy and the size of your other tops.

On to your plants. You trained them very well and there does not seem to be any light/air being blocked out. Your tops are all nice and far from each other, even height and their fans should not interfere with their individual growth. If a fan leaf does get in the way, you can take it, but I suggest massaging the fan stem out of the way first. A trick "naturalist's" use. Massaging the fan leaf stem between your forefinger and thumb, gently, will allow you to soften it up and direct it into the position you please. This isn't permanent and the fan will probably migrate back to its original position within 24-48 hours. BUT, this method allows us to keep out sugar maker, cause zero stress and still get the results we're looking for (light/air canopy penetration). Just takes a little more of your time to maintain the process. SO! at this time, I don't feel there's any 'necessary' defo to do on your girls. As they grow and get bushier you may like to take some fans at that time. For now, I'd suggest keeping all your sugar makers until or unless they actually become a problem and get in the way.

Here is a link to growweedeasy pertaining to defo, why we do it, when we do it and the benefits of doing it with overly bushy girls. https://www.growweedeasy.com/defoliation. I'm looking for a contact I know who does defo and I will send you their diary link and/or name in PM, I just need time to source it. I hope this helped you in some way and if you need anything else, drop me a PM and I shall see if I know anything about it. Cheers, looking great and definitely on your way:+1::wink:

Mold and Harvest time
Hey bros, take a look at the last Day 102 pics, mold... what do you think? Does not smell like it, comes from outside. Looks like a bunch of white pistils together. I've cut one of to examine further with the mic. I will update the pics later. Oh, and also, one more week to go?

Mold or genetics????
I have a GG#4 in 8th week of flower, and I have three top buds that are actually developing cotton tops in the center of their buds.
I would think mold would be thinner and more widespread.

Hello i really like the way you main-lined it and made such a superb plant out of it, my question now is how many grams did you make in total out of that plant ? Cause 500 grams for a 120w led looks a lot to me and didn’t really understand the g/w and everything at the harvest stage. Really nice job :+1::skin-tone-3: :100:

@Hazeterpz, thank you bró! I have a 120w dual 3000/4000 Samsung Led Quantum Board. I do one at a time and giver time to grow. I got around 100-120 grams dryed so yup around 500-600 wet - she is a big girl and Im revegging her clone! Will put a diary soon!
