WEEK 7 ( 20/1/2020 – 26/1/2020)

20/1/2020 - Micro - 1.5ml/L Gro - 1ml/L Bloom - 1.5ml/L Silicon - 1ml/L O2 - 1ml/L Micro - 25.5ml Gro - 17ml Bloom - 25.5 Silicon - 17ml O2 - 17ml Ph adjusted to 6.6
All plants look good. Flowering stretch is something I was aware of but severely underestimated. The girls are so bushy! And transplanting plant 5 to 1 gallon pot seems like a mistake now. It's buried among the other plants in the bigger 5 gallon pots. Note to self for next grow: if using 5 gallon pot, max 4 pots per 4 x 4 tent. But I think most likely I'll be using 2 gallon or 1 gallon pot with sea of green grow technique. As for my earlier fear of the rust spots, it might have been Calcium deficiency after all. No new leaves were affected. Thank fuck its not fungal infestation.

21/1/2020 - Did minimal pruning for plant 1,4 and 5. Plant 3 is still growing. No flowering yet. But it's definitely female as evidenced by stigmas. Its perfectly healthy. No signs of any issues. Just a late bloomer. Since it's the longest in vegetative stage, I'm guessing it's going to be the highest yielder. Looks like I have to get another smaller tent for drying purpose. Plant 3 is going to be the last to harvest and I need another tent to dry the ones that will be harvested earlier.

22/1/2020 - Cal mag - 1ml/L Micro - 1.5ml/L Gro - 1ml/L Bloom - 1.5ml/L Silicon - 1ml/L Cal mag - 17ml Micro - 25.5ml Gro - 17ml Bloom - 25.5Silicon - 17ml. Ph adjusted to 6.6. Run off water pH measured 6.6 - 6.7 for plant 1,2,3,5. Plant 4 is 6.3
All plants are healthy. Plant 3 is still not showing any signs of flowering. But it's vegging like crazy. So big and so bushy! Did a little pruning. Saved some leaves as survenir for my siblings. All plants are doing fantastic. They are so bushy that the tent is not big enough!Even while closing the zipper for the tent I accidentally cut several leaves that got stuck in the zipper. Note to self: tuck all the leaves and buds in properly before pulling up the tent zipper. Also noted that the run off water is getting less. Especially for plant 4. Even plant 5 in the small 1 gallon pot has less run off water. Maybe I should go for 5 litres for all 5 gallon pots and for the 1 gallon pot 1.5L.

23/1/2020 - Soft guard 2ml in 1L water applied to all plants. Soft guard is chitosan olligpsaccharide and its supposed to increase the immunity of the plants. PH adjusted to 6.9.

24/1/2020 - Major defoliation done to plant 3 that still hasn't start flowering yet. Opened up the branches. Once I flip the light to 12/12 and it starts it's flowering stretch, gives it more room to breathe after the defoliation. The broken branch is healing well. I am forced to change the light timing to 12/12 to induce flowering for plant 3 as the seed could be a photoperiod instead of autoflower. Plant 3 is about 2 weeks behind compared to the other plants that flowed earlier. Minor defoliation for plant 2 and LST readjusted. Plant 4 is just fantastic. Still leading the pack in terms of growth. Buds are thickening. Minor defoliation done. Dead leaves removed. Smaller branches that will produce popcorn nugs removed as well. Plant 5 is great as well. Minor defoliation and dead leaves removal done. Plant 1 is bushy as always. Minor defoliation done. All plants appear healthy with no signs of pests. Under leaves inspected as well.
Plain watering done and pH adjusted to 6.4. Each big pots watered to 4 litres each. 1.5 litre for the small pot. Run off water pH measured for all plants. PH 6.4-6.7.

25/1/2020 - Small fan readjusted. Left side raised and the right side lowed to the floor.

26/1/2020 - First full on flowering nutrient feeding done today.
