WEEKLY SUMMARY:

:woman-raising-hand:Fo' Twenny here!:woman-raising-hand:

Back with another update on our mostly Indica (70%) photo-dependant cultivar, :female-scientist::female_fairy: LSD, bred by BARNEY'S FARM! I have heard nothing but great things about this strain I am honestly pretty excited! She started bloom after the rest if her tent-mates. I had run out of room in the SOG because I started 18 plants, just in case we had males. Only one of the regular seeds was a male, YAY! Since we couldn't fit all 17 remaining plants in the SOG, decided to let this LSD girl get bigger in veg before putting her in the other half of the bloom tent. Well, a couple days after transplanting, I notuced one if the "feminized seeds" turned out to be male and she ended up making it into the final SOG after all. For this reason, she was thrown into flower well after her tent-mates. She has a nice thick stem and tight internodal growth with a bit of a tendency for side branching. I am really looking forward to watching her progress through flower. I hope she lives up to the hype! Stay tuned to see how she develops!

STRATEGY: To keep our LSD cultivar and her White Dutch Clover cover crop hydrated between feeds, every other day or so (as needed), she gets about 4 - 6 oz of plain filtered water pH adjusted between 6.2 and 6.6. This is sprayed evenly around the top of the medium using a 32 oz ZEP Professional sprayer. This has allowed me to minimize feeds to about one a week eliminating the need to mix my reservoir twice a week. Since she is mid stretch, I am keeping defoliation to a minimum, no more than 5-10% of the plants foliage in a week. I am only removing lower shoots that will only end up yielding larf as well as mature fan leaves (my definition of mature fan leaves: petioles of 1.5-2" and typically below the top three nodes of a growth shoot) that are facing inward towards the main stem. Next week will be focused more on those fan leaves that are excessively shading neighboring plants along with the lower leaves on any shoots left on the plant. Typically, the first 2-3 nodes of smaller growth shoots yield much smaller nugs. That said, on any remaining smaller growth shoots, I plan to remove those lower leaves and bud-sites early. This will also help with airflow and light penetration. I will not trim more than 25% of leaves per week. I actually stay closer to 15-20% per week or less while in flower, depending on the cultivar. I'm practicing some very light LST techniques. GENTLY bending stems to encourage even well-balanced growth intended to open the plants' center up for even light penetration and airflow. The goal is to evenly balance her growth within her 1'x1' footprint and avoid crowding herself or others.

Any advice, suggestions, or constructive criticisms are always welcome.

:shower:FEED DAY!:shower:

She received approximately 68 oz of solution. I mixed 9 gallons of solution for all the SOG plants. 68 oz of that was then measured and fed to this cultivar.

:female-scientist:NUTRIENT SOLUTION:female-scientist:
:arrow_down:Mixing Rundown:arrow_down:

The solution starts with 9 gal tap H2O through two kdf filters mixed in a 36 gallon reservoir. The solution is applied via wand sprayer powered by a submersible pump attached to a garden hose. Nutrients and additives are added to the reservoir in the order listed below and thoroughly mixed using a plastic stir spoon. The reservoir is oxygenated by four 4 inch air stones.

Our target pH is in the range of 6.0- 6.6 prior to adding any microbial innocclants.

°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°

:seedling: TRASPLANT DAY :seedling:

- The plan is to let her grow a bit before moving her into bloom since she wont fit in the SOG. I ran out of 3.4 gallon Active Aqua pots and this lady was running out of leg room. So, I transplanted this her into a white 10" tall 2.5 gallon 10" x 10" square pot I had lying around. Following transplant, I watered with a light feed solution with pH adjusted to 6.5. She will require another tranplant before going into bloom.

:blossom: START OF 12/12 CYCLE :blossom:

- Upon the discovery that one of my "feminized" cultivars in the SOG was a rogue male, I moved her into the 96" x 48" bloom tent under 12/12 lighting schedule in it's place. I plant to transplant ger into one if the 12" x 12" Active Aqua pots, ASAP!
