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

    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
