WEEK 17 (30/3/2020 – 5/4/2020)

31/3/2020 - 3L of water mixed with 1 tbs of molasses for plant 1. pH adjusted to 6.5 4L of water mixed with silicon, Cal mag, Micro, Bloom and o2 for plant 3 Silicon - 4ml Cal mag - 4ml Micro - 4ml Bloom - 8.4ml O2 - 4ml pH adjusted to 6.8
Today is the last day of watering for plant 1 and will harvest in 3 days time. Light brightness reduced. First driver turned to minimum and second driver turned to 70 percent bright. Now this light issue has been bothering me for some time. Its an led light and there is no way for me to estimate the adequate brightness level without a PAR meter. Since all the plants developed signs of foxtailing, I'm pretty sure that the brightness is too high for the plants. Despite increasing the height of the light, still the same. Not forgetting the tent temperature rise of 5 - 7 degrees when light turned on. So now the idea is by the decreasing the brightness and lowering the light to level to 16 inches from highest canopy, the plants would do better. I might have to invest in a par meter if I want to continue using led for my next grow. I'm quite happy with led for now and no plans of trying different lights.

2/4/2020 - Light adjustment done as planned yesterday. But now it's too close to the highest canopy. About 8 inches. I can't pull the ratchet up anymore. Perhaps if I shorten the steel cable from the light, I might be able to increase 3 to 4 inches higher. A job for tomorrow. Plant 1moved to the front for easier access for harvest tomorrow. Plant 3 trichomes inspected and its almost all cloudy. I think I can push another week of nutrient feed before I start flushing. For this plant I'm targeting 20 to 30 percent trichomes turning amber before harvest.I knew that trichomes maturity can have effect on the high but I underestimated the spectrum of effect it really has. Plant 4 the first plant to be harvested was about 70 percent cloudy and the high profile is more of anxiousness, paranoia, palpitations and negative thoughts.Followed by deep couch lock and low mood. But plant 2 and 5 on the other hand, they were harvested when all were cloudy with about 10percent amber trichomes. The high profile in the beginning is quite relaxed and more positive thoughts. Followed by deep relaxation and good sleep. Wake up the next day feeling more energetic.
4L of water mixed with silicon, Cal mag, Micro, Bloom and o2 for plant 3 Silicon - 4ml Cal mag - 4ml Micro - 4ml Bloom - 8.4ml O2 - 4mlPh adjusted to 6.8

3/4/2020 - Plant 1 harvested as planned but could only cut half of the buds and wet trim it. Too busy with other things to finish in one sitting. The balance uncut stems with the pot replaced in the tent to continue tomorrow. The buds were so heavy, it was a challenge to hold on to the base of the cut stem to trim. The stem bends like a bitch from the weight of the bud.

4/4/2020 - 4L of water mixed with Micro and Bloom for plant 3 Micro - 4ml Bloom - 8.4ml pH adjusted to 6.4
Successfully harvested plant 1. Similar to plant 4, plant 1 did not have a strong smell. I'm curious as to how the high would be. One more plant to go then!

5/4/2020 - Didn't have much to do today so decided to take some macro shots of the buds. Few shots turned out fantastic!
