Around day 15 I will switch them to 2 gallon pots. Then a few days after they will go under a Hortilux MH blue in the tent. After they are all sexed, and the selected males are moved into a new room, the females will go into 5 gallons and then into flower at around day 30-50 (depending on how many females I have).
I keep these around my grow space. This plant, the Peace Lily, removes mold spores from the air and distributes them to its root system. I keep one in my room, one in my bathroom, one in my grow room, one in my kitchen, and one in each of my 3 spare bedrooms/bathrooms.
I generally take 2-3 from the unused locations in my home and I stick them into the dry room until the plants are fully dried. I have never had mold, ever... They enjoy medium to high humidity environments and around 60-100 degrees. Always make sure the soil is a bit moist, I use fox farm ocean forest and I add in bark chips to increase soil acidity.
If you live in a very humid area and have a huge problem with mold during drying and tend to fast dry your buds to avoid mold. Buy this plant, (practically anywhere that sells plants) and you'll never have mold in your bud again!
I WOULD NOT recommend more than one in your grow room, due to the high level of CO2 these plants absorb, also make sure its off to the side and not under direct light.
I WOULD recommend two or more in your dry room. However, if your dry room is completely dark take the plant/s out every 6 or more hours for light then put them back in. I have a tent I use for drying that I setup inside one of my spare rooms, and I put 2-3 plants outside the tent by the window (keeping the windows closed) with good air ventilation going into the tent.
BONUS....I always had clogged nasal passages, yet doctors said I didn't have allergies, and after putting these in every room, its gone...
ALSO... People would be surprised, even when they think their stash is completely clean and looks fine it can still have mold/mildew levels that are not noticeable by sight or smell. I have had clubs reject bud due to them testing positive for mold/mildew.
plants still going strong, going to be putting them in new pots today.
Transferred into new pots, beautiful root systems and the smell was wonderful. Like a fresh bag of soil. They are now under the 400 watt hortilux MH blue. Took me all day, harvested all the plants in there, cleaned the grow space, trimmed and hung the plants to dry. Cleaned the giant mess I made, etc etc... unfortunately no photos in the rush and chaos I forgot. I will upload photos of the GG#4 S1 buds when they are dry. plus the weight of the plant etc.
I will upload pics of the plants in their new environment tomorrow. I will also be sure to upload pics of the roots when I transplant into 5 gallons seeing I totally forgot this time.
After transplanting all I immediately watered with R/O water with some added mineral water, plus Orca liquid mycorrhizae added to it.
GG#4 S1 is right...................................................................................................................here^^^^ this bottom one (edit: noticed it change depending on the size of screen displaying. so to clarify, its the very bottom far right plant that looks nothing like any of the other plants)
plus the two best lights in the business, imho...
Sorry for the delay. I had an extremely crazy week.
I've also been scratching my head as to why that GG#4 S1 pheno looks nothing like any of the prior seeds I have popped. Not entirely sure how strain lineage works, but maybe this is an older genotype? I mean I have for sure popped over 90+ of these GG#4 seeds and there is also two phenos, both looking almost identical to each other. So 1 in 90 beans and you get some weird pheno? lol... My environment is also identical to each grow. 70-84F lowest/max. Environment + genotype equals phenotype, therefore if the environment is way off you can get something that looks different, but this isnt the case.... Im confused... But also excited... lol
Day 39. Switched to flower yesterday. 6 total females/all sexed. 3 males 2 leaning towards the starfighter pheno and the other one towards the plushberry pheno. Plushberry pheno was tossed. 2 males are left.
Bottom plant in the image above is the GG#4. Once again... I have never seen this pheno in all the seeds I have ran. Appears to have a bush like growth structure with extremely short inter-nodal spacing. Knowing GG#4's genealogy this could be any indica that was breed in from the beginning. For instance; superskunk, skunk #1, indigo diamond, etc... If the leaves dont get as frosty as they normally due during the first 2 weeks of flower I probably wont be using any pollen on this plant, and instead will store the pollen for the next run. During that run I will be doing mostly all GG#4s. I am really hoping this strain has the same bud structure/potency as all the other seeds I have popped of the GG#4. If it does, it could really lead to an interesting cross.
UPDATE: Every Exotic Genetix Pink 2.0 female I have is currently mildly herming on me. The only plant not herming? My GG#4 S1 personal cross(plus 2 the two males).... I am a bit upset right now, and will provide some pictures in a day or so when I water them and they are moved out of the tent and under better (not yellow) light. I will also be contacting exotic genetix, I have personally ran more of their seeds than I can remember and am hoping they will help me out. This also has never happened before while running their seeds. The two males I still currently have don't appear to be herming at this time, and are currently developing only pollen sacs. I will be watching them closely.
Bummer man, hit them with some reverse.
After further investigation it appears to be 1 branch herming on 4 of the the 5 females. The 5th female is fine, plus the 6th female which is a GG#4 S1 is also perfectly fine. All I have done so far is email Exotic Genetix and currently waiting for their response, I am watering them tomorrow and will provide pictures at that time. In the end I can always just cut the branch off each plant that is herming. Never really seen this before tbh...
I am skeptical on reverses, generally that can just lead to additional problems (I.E. push them towards a full fledged male). I am trying to pamper them, while also contemplating mutilating the bad branch on each of the 4 herming females.
After talking with Exotic Genetix, they will be sending me a few packs. Which is very cool of them to do! They have always been one of the top seed companies in my book, and they continue to prove it all the time. Customer Service A+, seeds A+.
Stay tuned below for pictures. Currently in the process of bubbling the nutrients.
Only 1 female plant actually had female flowers and male flowers on the one bad branch. So could only get this one picture as proof. So the other 3 females that had 1 branch herm, was a completely male branch. Which makes me scratch my head. Generally they are mixed like this pink 2.0 plant pictured above.
Pictures with all of them together, 5 females
^^^^^^^ This is the GG#4 S1, unkown/never before seen pheno. Have done more seed runs that I can count with this strain, always almost completely identical to each other. Except for this one, I thought maybe I got a seed mixed in the bag, however, I have never had any seeds near that bag and if I ever found a seed laying on the floor I surely would never throw it in the GG#4 S1 seed bag.
^^^^^^^Pink 2.0 female (no herming)
^^^Pink 2.0 Female (herming)
from what I remember, the starfighter pheno stretches a bit more and is really dominant, I believe I have 3 starfighter phenos and 2 plushberry phenos.
I want to say that the plushberry pheno is the one that is herming. Although I really have no idea, this is purely a guess based on what I remember. I will be labeling them and seeing if my guesses are correct around harvest time.
4 herming females, we know that for sure. If anyone has any ideas on what to do with them let me know. Currently thinking about cutting off the bad branch on each plant and hoping that doesn't shock them to much/cause further herming. Or just scrapping them and using 1 of the male's pollen that I saved on the GG#4 S1 unkown pheno
I'm curios to see if it starts popping up on other parts of the plant too.
Then I will chop off the bad branches. Luckily none of them are on the main cola, so that is good, and generally shouldn't induce too much stress.
My guess is it is just going to start popping up on different parts of the plant. Will include pictures when I chop them up later today.
Update: After just checking, 1 female has completely stepped over to the dark side. Will be killing it today, 5 left. Stay tuned for pictures
Of those 5 we have 3 hermaphrodites, which those 3 will have the 1 bad branch cut off. We have 1 non hermaphrodite Pink 2.0, and another non hermie GG#4 S1.
I think you're right, it will be interesting to see.
