I’m trying not to expect too much from the first grow yield wise but secretly will be a bit gutted if it’s less than a few pounds. I vegged for about 3 months, strains Power Africa X, White Widow, White Siberian, Girl Scout Crack, OG Skunk, Mamma Mia, caramel Kush, Red Diesel, Northern Soul, Afghan Kush Ryder, some were started later so all not the same height. The baby’s under the stairs, iv got 6 from seeds & 10 clones, these iv tried fimming, only been successful with 2 plants, iv topped a couple & im going to try mainling, iv got some time to experiment, so think I’ll try a few different techniques. the clones are a totally different grow as most things u read say they are, I’m crisscrossing everything hoping they all work out in the end. Any thoughts, ideas, opinions welcome

    Yeah I’m thinking another month probably. I hope the buds on the colas join up & swell nicely I’m gritting my teeth in anticipation

    Impressive. Someone who didn't keep 3 fertilizer companies in business. Good job. Keep it simple and keep 'em growing.

    Yup I agree good job man your killing it. Get a flora-scope and start looking at the trichomes, you prob have anywhere from 2 weeks to a month till flush time. When looking in the scope you will see the trichs start to turn amber in color, its up to you how ripe you would like to make them. The more amber trichs the heavier the high will be. People aim at everything from 10 to 30 percent amber before they cut. If you have a really nice high def camera you can take pics and blow them up to see the trichs as well, but You can get a scope for like 15 bucks. I'm sure you already know but the hairs will start to darken when they are ripe as well. Again you are doing a great job. Lastly I find myself agreeing with harley again, poop on the idea that you need ten million nutes to grow great weed!

    Thanks heaps, it’s really great to hear from experienced growers that they look good.


    Some of the hairs have turned brown already, hope that won’t affect anything cos I’m sure they aren’t ready yet & I’m hoping they get a lot fatter first.

    it is a slow process, don't worry man you are fine they will all turn brown or red or orange by the time you are done. They will plump up some more for you before it is over.

    Technically you’re in week 4 , first two weeks are the stretch period. Normally you start counting when the first set of fresh pistils start to show

    Looks good tho, I’ve made that mistake on planting early. Good luck

    So We are now at 8 weeks in from flip so 6 weeks proper flowering, I’m starting to get a bit worried that they are on the small side. Completely screwed it up not really training them, I’m regretting not trying lollipopping at least, now I’m just looking at all the popcorn branches thinking what a waste. 3 months vegging, total of 18 plants in there, it’s bloody hard work watering having to move them out & around to get in there. Iv added a couple of bloom cfl’s Just cos I had them & wanting to get some light underneath, probly wont do much but it’s worth a try. We’ve been banking on a semi decent yield but am thinking not. Just wondering about the leaves on some that are purplish, is this normal? And will those colas fill in or is that it (photo 9). A lot of the pistills are orange but trichs are clear & they are obviously still a way off. So while we wait for them to finish we’ve gotten stuck in with the clones & seedlings trying manifolding, LST, super cropped, a lil bit of everything, experimenting a bit with the time we have, I had thought I’d have them in the tent by now but they’ve already been under the stairs a month now, they will be a long veg too by the looks 403CF4CF-22F7-4796-B131-E8F0ED2FFFEE.jpeg C84B5899-16EE-4DB9-9E1D-9E9211F6B607.jpeg 47B27156-25FF-45F7-9943-C7C36A77C568.jpeg 5F90B323-AEB9-4E29-81CA-A8B94BB5FCE6.jpeg 403CF4CF-22F7-4796-B131-E8F0ED2FFFEE.jpeg C84B5899-16EE-4DB9-9E1D-9E9211F6B607.jpeg 47B27156-25FF-45F7-9943-C7C36A77C568.jpeg 5F90B323-AEB9-4E29-81CA-A8B94BB5FCE6.jpeg 817D8DF3-B964-43EA-892E-6A6E57250C0E.jpeg 1936ECF0-1A76-4F1A-A012-3B100CB87F3F.jpeg 42B1CE32-A1A4-4893-BA05-2D894DFAA566.jpeg 0149ADC8-BCD4-49F4-A11B-2B03F7E48FA6.jpeg 076A37AD-D5FE-46F4-94FA-3079AA32F711.jpeg

    Looking great for first time and eventually you will get it dialed in,like harvesting even a little early just to get the crop in to fill the flowering room up again and equaling out electricity costs to weight gained for letting them go longer.

    They look good for no training.

    Count your time from flip, most strains take 8-10 weeks.

    An excellent effort for a first run, even if you don't get the yield you want.

    Always room for improvement. That's why growing is addictive!

    looks like its going to be fluffy bud as well,and with all the trichomes on those leaves going to be a shame to trim them.

    Fluffy potent sativa,not great weight wise.Indicas for the solid nugs,hence my screen name.Maybe that is super duper potent though looks that way just wont see any real weight.
