  1. I will keep some in a glass jar and the rest in plastic boxes. They are good quality food grade so I dont worry too much.
  2. @Maria sanchez Im planning to cure the buds for at least some months since I like how the smell and taste profiles change over time. Also I will make some ice hash from the frozen trim. Either gumby method or I will actually get some micron bags. Any suggestions? Original bubblebags or are there better ones? -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Finally some pictures After chopping. You can see the algae buildup and white mold. Possibly the myco? A pile of freshly bucked buds and some leaves. After drying 6-7 days. I'm trying to keep the buds at RH 62% in food grade plastic boxes. I am still burping the boxes everyday since humidity climbs slightly over night. Most buds were trimmed using a spinning trimmer causing damage to the buds and responsible for the darker color of the buds. These are hand-trimmed head buds. They are visibly lighter in colour and its possible to see the trichomes. The harvest in plastic boxes while burping the buds. Xbox 360 for comparison. All boxed up almost ready for long term curing. I hope everybody enjoyed the grow report and see you all next time RTS
  3. when i cut them down 50-60% of pistils were brown. that happened in 3-4 days. so i can imagine it would have been ripe in 5-7 more days
  4. yeah growwise it seems to be more of an indica leaning hybrid with very hard and dense buds. my RH had spikes of up to 70% at night. in my opinion the biggest factor was me spraying a foliar feed on the buds despite high humidity. the humidity lodged in the buds and couldnt escape causing mold and budrot. fortunately i could cut around the affected areas and the damage was not that big. allegedly the wappa clone i have is done in 8 weeks but some people like to harvest it at 7 1/2 weeks. I harvested half a week earlier. i didnt have the chance to flush the medium so thats also a thing. buds are currently drying ready to jar for some curing in a day or two. i will upload pics tomorrow
  5. I have been busy the last few days so I didnt post any updates. I have actually decided to chop them at 7 weeks since I have been noticing mold issues in many buds and there seemed to be 2-3 new affected buds every day. Currently the buds are trimmed and drying. I will update with pictures soon. It's a bummer I had to cut them early but I think its for the better. I learned a lot from this grow and look forward to the next. Pictures will follow
  6. I think I made the mistake to start this thread under "hydro" instead of "grow reports". More people follow the threads there. Glad you found your way here though
  7. Day 42 I took the first pictures before light turned on using flash. The other three I took as the HPS was turning on giving me different colors. It looks pretty cool in my opinion. I had a little accident causing nute burn and upward clawing leaves. I have used the iron foliar feed and not thinking I used the recommended dosage frying my plants. Note to self: use 1/4 of the recommended dosage. I look forward to harvest day I'm thinking to grow the same clones again but without making the mistakes I did this run. RH too low first 2 weeks included mycos and trichodermas too late started supplementing calcium too late too high EC foliar feed too strong All in all I am still satisfied how things are coming along and really like the ease of use of my current setup. I definitely need to change my charcoal filter before next run and add another fan for better circulation. Also I might need a heater for cold nights. RTS
  8. @Maria sanchez Thank you I didnt veg at all. The clones went straight to 12/12 after rooting.
  9. Thought I'd share some pictures of Jackberry F4 gravity hash using water and crushed ice. No micron bags. The hash was made December 2018 and has been sitting in a glass jar along with a pack of boveda 62% RH. The hash is very soft and resiny. Hands become very oily and sticky after touching it. It gets super soft just from hand warmth. It is very difficult to handle.. if you touch it a little bit too long its gonna stick to your finger. I will elaborate on the smell, taste and effect soon. For now I want to share the pictures. The two chunks are around 4g in total
  10. Very very interesting video. Thank you for sharing. I have also watched this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4Z8PJvOPx8M I wonder if there really is such a big difference in effect of the resin glands of different micron bags. Is there?
  11. @Snydgrow I just got the silica additive recently so I cannot say anything about it's effectiveness. It's Silica Blast by botanicare. It's a clear liquid with no smell. You might want to consider a biofilter if you have issues with film and foam.
  12. @ifish@Hamme Hydro Thanks a lot for the praise :) @Snydgrow I stopped using calgreen as it has 30% Nitrogen. I am afraid to prolong flowering time or prevent maturation. I have used myself though and had a great grow but I'm always looking to optimize things. That's why I dont want to be adding any more N than is already in my base nutes. I believe calgreen is ment to be used with Metrop's MR1 and MR2 which are low in nitrogen. When I did use it I added it at 1ml / 10L strength. During this grow I have not been using a calcium additive up until a few days ago. I decided to go with Canna Mono Calcium which purely consists of 11.6% calcium and the rest is distilled water I guess. My tap water is around 0.4 mS and thus far I have only been adding base nutes A+B up until total EC of up to 1.8mS. Also rootstim the first 3 weeks. A few posts ago I have written that I noticed the feed is too hot and spotted some marks on the leaves due to calcium deficiency. I don't mind explaining my nutrient mix. My new feed from now is: →0.4mS base EC tap water →1.4mS after adding A+B components of flower nutes →1.5mS after adding calcium → I add 1/2 strength silica additive as an experiment. It does not raise EC much (if at all) but raises pH →I also add some myco and bacteria powder. I am not sure if it can work in a high P environment. I only started adding it after I switched to bloom nutes so I might be wasting money here. →I add AtaClean to my mix to make sure drippers dont clog. I use it according to instructions. Maybe a little bit more generous :) →Finally I add diluted pH- solution to adjust the pH to 5.8-6.0 and let my pH pump do the rest. This way my nutrient solution has an EC/pH of 1.5/5.8. I plan to leave my nutrient mix as is until EC rises over 1.7 mS from the recirculating drain. Then I will dilute with tap water to 1.5mS Hope this helps :) RTS
  13. Day 26 just before lights on. I think the pink pistils are due to camera flash
