Counting days to harvest Russian Doll.Flushing plants with pure water for 7 days now.Flowering cycle for this strain is quite short , 54-61 days.When I was growing outdoor this hibrid, girls finished in 54 days, but now I'm not sure ... don't have a microscope to see trichomes, but considering magnified pics taken with my phone I think the harvest day is coming very soon.Its gone 59 days from switching lights on 12/12 ... 52nd day I saw first sign of flowering ... here is few pics, what do you think guys?
I cant't resist any more and tried some buds ..... woow, smell, strenght and effect is very powerfull, longlasting and extremly energetic :muscle::astonished::grinning: Keeps smile on my face for good 4 hours.Taste is oridinary and old-school ganja like.

Grow Questions
banema week 5 started grow question 3 months ago
What do you think is the best time to transfer them to the 12/12 regime because I am limited by a tent height(160x80x80cm) and temp. is going very hot? Also, which feeding schedule you recommend given that they grow in the soil? (AN"Jungle Juice","Sensizim","CarboLoad","BigBud")

Wait until you have filled the canopy then switch to 12/12. Nothing wrong with a short plant, the important thing is to have a full even canopy; a good, full, even canopy is what's going to give you a nice yield. Don't try to force a schedule on to your plants, it's better to learn to read them as their capacity to take nutrients depends on your ambient temperature and humidity and quantity of light. As a rule of thumb, feed with a strength of 0,7 to 0,8 EC /300-400 PPM once a week, Why? It usually takes 7 to 10 days for a plant to react to a feeding, you can't do too much wrong with that strength in soil. Did the foliage become light green or develop signs of deficiencies? next time use a strength of 1.0 EC/ 500 PPM, Did the foliage show signs of overfeeding? Go easier on the nutes next time, or use pure water. It's easy to compensate for a slight deficiency and it won't impair flowering, but a nutrient burn can seriously hurt your plant. Finally only start feeding them once you notice your soil is not giving them what they need, a good soil mix can last the whole veg and part of the flower stage. For me 3 gallon/11 liter of soil can feed 5 weeks of veg and 3 weeks of flower with only water.

hey, i would cut of more of the big fan leaves so the buds will get more light and also would stop with the Big Bud and give them AN overdrive from now on! Big Bud is more to use to form lots of bud sites in the Beginning of bloom but Overdrive will boost your buds into getting much Bigger and fatter. and i would look into Bud swelling technique to get bigger buds for next grows ( since i started using it my results increased a lot)
DrGanjaman answered grow question 1 month ago
Your plant is looking good I wouldn't defoliate any more instead expose lower bud to light try moving her branches around in order to open space for light go thru and reach the lower bud sites
PharmaZ answered grow question 1 month ago
Looking great! You’ve done enough defoliation. Just right if you ask me. You can start overdrive when the bud finishes developing and the pistils are browning. At least that’s when I use it and it works a charm, I do only use it for 1 week rather than 2 as I mostly grow Autoflowers. For the little buds, you’re bound to have Smaller underdeveloped buds even after defol don’t worry about that you’ve done well. Hope that answers your question:+1::skin-tone-3:

@banema Usually, scrog growers tend to remove everything that's under the net, because it won't get enough light to fully develop. However, since your scrog is really high and all of your plants are not the same height, and you already have beautiful buds under the net --> I'd recommend not to throw away those little nuggets, but instead try an efficient defoliation onto the upper stems. I'll be around, good luck with these beauties!
