I'll see if I have a pic my memory of foggy, I've got 2 other grows going lol.
I was having trouble for a month with my phone, the usb port is getting bad and won't down load pics and I refuse to let my phone go on the internet, its what I have a pc for.. lol. I can say, one looked like a cat had chewed it when the first leaves appeared. I tansplanted to the auto pots about day 14-15 and they were bigger than yours honestly.
I've looked at a lot of grow Diaries and it seems like mine are pretty close to what the others are it's just that one I don't understand what the deal is with it it's not really growing much but oh well yeah I would have loved to see pictures of when they were younger I just like comparing what kind of lighting were you using and the actual watt and how far away
So pop22 what advice would you give for someone weeks behind you I have a 450w viparspectra led on them with one 15w led on both. Any tips or ideas I would appreciate i should be getting my mega crop nutes today as of now I have the FF trio pack
I have had a look at my pics in this thread and i have some pics of day 10 and day 18 and yours looks about mid way between both of my pics, so I wouldn’t worry too much, you seem to be doing fine so far.
Also bear in mind she may be using a lot of energy developing roots, so seems to be slow above ground but actually working like crazy below.
Only tip I would give is try a little LST, it worked well for me on both my plants.
Ok ty man anyone know how much of mega crop I'm suppose to use per gallon just got it today
With the let when should I start also should I bend down the main branch if so how long would you suggest this is my third grow so I'm still learning thank you
Sorry, never used megacrop, it costs a comparative fortune to even ship the free packet to the uk. If they had a distributor over here i would certainly buy some.
As for lst, i think i started about 2 weeks in. Just GENTLY bend the main branch down so the others catch up, then bend them all down until you have as many tops as you want, or until the stretch has finished, there is no set time to stop. I have to lst as my grow cabinet has hardly any headroom so i have to grow short, bushy plants. I use plastic coated garden wire so it doesn’t cut into the plant, and drill holes around the lip of my pots so I can hook the wire into the holes.
So a little into flower your saying ? Also it's kinda tuff to bend mine right at the moment cuz they are so short I might pull the light from them so I can get some vehicle on the plant
They don’t need to be massive to start LST, this is from my post on page 06 of this very thread - day 18, i had been lst’ing for a few days. If you zoom in you can see the wire sticking into the soil on the right hand plant.
Bear in mind my plants go no bigger than about 1ft by the time they are chopped, the earlier you can start the better.
Ok awesome does that help promote side branching? Also would you pull them wires on the main branch after stretching during flowering good looking plants man
I''ve been using 1.5 tablespoons per 5 gallons so you do the math lol! There is a feeding chart on Greenleaf's website also.
LST means instead of having one main shoot, you encourage all the side shoots to try and become the main one. Therefore they all grow better and throw off their own shoots. Once they are all a similar height you can lst again - meaning multiple main budsites instead of one, and a shorter but wider plant.
It is very similar to topping or FIM but less stressful for the plant.
Once the plant has stretched i pull all the wires out and leave her, by that time all the branches are solid and won’t spring back up.
I'm using 2 grams a gallon foe the dreammatics and 6 grams foe my kush that are mid way threw flowering today was the first dose so my next update in a few days we will see the progress
Ok I understand alot better now and get exactly what it does thank you for the info I really appreciate it
Day 82 - Chopped.
So just shy of 12 weeks, after having a good look all over both the plants I am growing in the comparative I decided to chop.Both were looking as though they were going downhill. Both had sugar leaves with a lot of amber, calyxes were cloudy with ambers, and it was an ideal day for me to stink up the garage as both neighbours were out.
Buds were not as dense as the Brooklyn sunrise, but there were a lot more of them.
I had very little to trim leaf wise off both plants, I took the big fans off but pretty much left the sugar leaves alone. I left a lot of stalk and hopefully this will help take a few more days in the drying stage. Garage is between 17C - 21C at moment so nowhere near as hot as it has been. Rh is about 40.
Ended up with 265g wet. Pretty happy with that considering they were not fed for the first 6 weeks due to me being in hospital, then growing in 30C+ (86F+) temps due to the UK having it's annual 3 weeks of summer.
The HPS had made mine very stretchy..hope it stacks...
NICE job bro !!!!!!!!!
They are starting to bulk up, very thirsty plants even under led's.
Tasty looking buds!
