So like the title says it is Day 19 of 12/12 for these 2 beauties. It looks like the stretch is coming to an end now finally. Well the OG#18 didn't really stretch at all, so I wasn't worried about it at all as far as height is concerned. The OG#18 is still as a short 20". It is quite a bit bigger around though. I'm doing some LST on her to try to help get some light underneath that thick ass canopy. I don't know how much it will help in the end. Next time I grow this plant I will make sure to veg it alot longer. I will just have to make sure I grow it with similar growing plants next time. It is really starting to stink. I can smell it pretty good in the morning when I get up creeping down the hallway away from my grow room. The bud formations are starting to come together now. There are trichs on all of the sugar leaves now. This is looking and smelling like it is going to be a strain that I really like and will probably keep around in the future as a regular. I have so many different genetics to try out before I can really afford to grow it twice in a row. Anyways back on topic.
I started to notice a problem with my Ak-47. It has these small little red dots on a bunch of leaves. These infected leaves have red stems too. A couple of them fell off my plant on it's own, and I pulled a few of the worst ones off myself. I believe that it is a potassium deficiency. I flushed her real good a few minutes ago. I'm not to worried about it right now. I'm sure that I can get it worked out sometime down the line. At least I hope so. Anyways the Ak-47 is looking really nice besides that. The bud formations are starting to come together to actually form buds. This plant is nice and triched up on all the sugar leaves and even on some small fan leaves too! It doesn't have a super strong smell that there is a slight sweet smell that reminds me of something fruity. It looks like I am going to get a nice yield off of her as long as things keep going as they have been. Fingers crossed! Lol! She is a solid 3' tall now, but I think the stretch is pretty much finished now. She might grow a few inches taller over the rest of her life but that is about it.
I have had 2 of 4 seeds pop of these Alphakronik White Diamonds that I have. One is doing alright in my veg box under 2 CFL's. One 26w bulb and one 15w bulb I think. The other seed just popped this morning, but I had to due some surgery to get the whole damn shell off. I got it off, but I am not sure if it will actually make it. I use an exacto knife to get it off. I didn't have a hard time doing it, so I think it has a descent chance of making it. I had actually given up on this seed. I put another seed in a wet paper towel to germ yesterday, and to my surprise when I walked into the grow this morning there was my little deformed newborn. Now I have started germing that other seed, but I can only have 4 plants at a time, so I will have to make a choice soon as to what I am going to do if this seed germs and the newborn pulls thru its surgery as well. That will put me over my limit. Oh well, I will figure it out.
Here are the new pics of my babies. The 1st three will be of the OG#18. The last three are of the Ak-47.
