Ms Big Beautiful Buds Simultaneous Grows – Pre Grow – First Grow – Second Grow
Week #5-#6 Flowering – (Week #17-#18 total) -Pre Grow
– AK-48 #1 – Shiva Shanti #1
Watering more often, about 2 liters (66 ounces) per plant every other day or every two days depending how they respond. I am adding 1 tablespoon of molasses one watering, 1 teaspoon B-52 another watering, and plain water any other watering. I received a 16 ounce sample bottle of Advanced Nutrients B-52 and a 32 ounce sample bottle of Advance Nutrients Grow from the Grow/Hydro Store where I shop
I was pleasantly surprised that my two ladies started to have real buds, colas, and sparkles like many of the pictures that I have seen. The extra watering seems to be helping, poor things were thirsty.
Oh my, I wrapped my hand around the AK-48 to see how fat one of the colas was getting and my hand got all smelly and sticky. I had to wash my hands in soap and water in order to get the smell and stickiness off.
Awe hell! Just when I think that I have a handle on things something else happens. I needed a fan for my nursery so I switched some fans around and put a big fan in the grow area with the flowering ladies. The other fan was actually in the grow area and when the lights came on the fan also turned on. Well, after the switch I overslept Sunday morning (Saturday night over indulgence). When I went to check on everything the lights had been on for about an hour with the door closed and no fan (the fan is on the outside). My poor buds were toasted. A couple of days later I touched them and they weren’t as sticky so I collected as much of the scorched buds, leaves and cut some off hoping that they would recover. Some of the scorched leaves and bud tips were so try that I decided to try out my new glass pipe. I have a few more weeks of flowering to go so I may have some decent bud in the end. It didn’t knock me on my ass, but I had a nice giggly buzz going for about an hour.

– Clones/Cuttings (13) AK-48 #1ABCD (4), Shiva Shanti #1ABCD (4)
– seeds Snow White (1)
The plants are growing and if I had the space I would start them to flower. Started adding FF Grow Big, 1 teaspoon per gallon of water, working up to 2 teaspoons. Next watering will add FF Big Bloom, 1 tablespoon per gallon of water, working up to 2 tablespoons. These plants get about 1 liter each when watered (33 ounces) about every two days.
I was going to take more cuttings and repot these plants before switching over to 12/12 in two weeks, but when I went to the Grow Store they were out of the pots that I wanted. The pots are on order and should be here in about 7 days.
I will get the cuttings this time I am going to try the rock wool cubes because they seem to root faster than soil mix. I sure hope all goes well because I can’t afford to lose these cuttings this close to flowering.
