Had to sneak in the most trusted PK booster. It really helped

The tricomes oh gosh the Tricome forest is real.

Gotta love the dude grows microbes

Gotta have the worm castings. For all else in combination with recharge and Espoma it'a win win

Fell in love with espoma. Honestly next to everything I've used. This one bag. I mean this one bag is truly all you need for a grow. 1/3 cup per pot once a month. Even in flower, microbes and Marco and micro nutrients are included in this one bag. Perfect

Well well done is done well. Great harvest on two very beautiful plants... I absolutely love this gelato strain. The coloring is amazing and the smell and taste both are like lemon ice cream. A very smooth creamy taste and smell. Followed by complete relaxation. Gelato by ilgm is definitely a sneak attack strain. At first smoke your like cool and smooth flavor really sucks you in. Followed by bouts of coughing and more coughing. Yet and still by the time the joint is gone your eyes sink low and your chill. Then the rest sneaks up on you with lead feet and a heavy hit later on than first expected. Next thing you know your telling yourself not to do that again lol.

As for the grow itself it was an incredible experience. Lots of love and experimentation when into the two plants and two grow styles. The gelato 1 was grown as a mainline plant. However I didn't cut any nodes off below the 3rd. I topped it at the third twice, at the second once and the first node not at all. This gave 10 mainlined branches. Which I forced to grow along bamboo. Giving them extra thick stalks. Which in combination with the old Kyle kushman chiropractic way of cracking the stem. As well as using the blue planet gold shield potassium silicate to produce very hearty stems. She stretched relatively mildly, about a third of her original height. The buds were remarkable as well. Trimming off all but the top 3 nodes two weeks before flower. Which in that time she then developed 3 new nodes to go along with the original 3. Thus 6 nodes stretched out evenly and the massive even bud structure and canopy you see there in the photos was born. Likewise the harvest did not disappoint.

Gelato 2 bushmaster. Was just that a bush masters dream come true. Especially since as a seedling she did not rise above the soil on her own. After all the rest came up, I had to dig her up. This lead to me having cut the tap root completely off. Leaving I mean a mere millimeter of root left. However her shell was already fallen off. So I expose her head to the light just above the surface and she pulled through. She did show signs early on that she was behind. Yet and still she was neck and neck with the rest if the plants and became second to only one other plant in this grow in height and bud development. Her buds stretch high as unlike the gelato 1 mainline. She was held down at the 3rd, 2nd, and 1st node. Until all limbs had grown outward up to the next 3 nodes before being topped at the 3rd once more at each limb. So I must hand it to the bushmaster for this outstanding grow technique. As I learned from experience if I had just stripped the gelato 1 mainline as just described earlier and then left her alone. Not exposing each node to light continuously over the course of the stretch as I did. She too would of definitely made better use of those 6 nodes and grown up to expose each bud sight on it's own.

Well that's all I have to share for this grow friends as always happy growing and tune in for the next grow. Where perhaps the bushmaster will reveal himself. Unless we all wear masks and the rest will fall into place. The grow diaries is a great place to share and learn from others. What I have to report is honesty under a veiled truth where only in the greatest of silence the truth is revealed. So if you have to ask you will never know and if you know then you need only ask. Until then...philosophiae instaurationem magna
