Day 36 : AK was fed the remaining feed mixed @ 1.75mL/L. Cheese got the upgraded feed @ 2mL/L , AK has started to show pistils. Cheese has reached 24" from the top of the soil. Stretch seems to have slowed down, time to start packing on weight. There are a lot of bud nodes on this plant.
Day 37 : Stretch has stopped on Cheese. The bud sites are getting fatter each day. No trichrome formation yet. AK is still stuck in whatever mode it's in. There are pistils but it just doesn't want to flower. Both plants are healthy
Day 38 : Fed both plants 2L each with nutes now up to 2mL/L. Carboload starting soon. Cheese is fattening up nicely. As you can see, AK is just doing its own damn thing
Day 39 : AK is still growing vertically but no flowers yet. Cheese growth has mostly stopped, it's getting wider but not taller. The buds are filling in and getting fatter each day. Still no trichrome formation. Starting to detect a faint funky smell when I open the tent
Day 40 : Noticed a slight burn on some tips so i backed the bloom nutes back down to 1.75ml/L. Added Carboload @ 1ml/L today. Buds are getting bigger daily on cheese. Did some pruning on both to open up the lower canopy a bit more. AK has grown quite a bit, some nice side nodes have shot out. Still no flowers but pistils are showing up everywhere. I think she's going to finish in 12 weeks
Day 41 : Patience has paid off. AK has started flowering and boy has it grown. It is the same size as cheese (24 inches) and i think there's more left in her. Both plants seem to be doing well with backing the nutes down a little bit. They seem to be ok with the carboload that i started last feed. The buds on cheese are getting fatter every day. Lots of side branching. Both plants took well to some light pruning to open the canopy up. I think i'll pluck a few more next feed
Day 42 : Fed both 2L with nutes @ 1.75, Cal-Mag and Carboload. AK has grown taller than cheese. She's starting to produce buds. Cheese buds are getting fatter every day
