  1. If they grow too big, you can always cut the plants back before flowering.
  2. Some of the plants developed leaf damage. Some of it is nutritional and some is from the canopies being too close to the lights. Here are the flowers around day 50. This first plant is Aurora Indica x Strawberry Kush bx1. This plant has the most damage of any. The buds didn’t seem close to being done. Strawberry Kush bx1 x Afghan CBD. Anything with Strawberry Kush bx1 in it is going to take longer than 8 or 9 weeks. Flower development seemed to stall for about a week, during the sixth week. I gave each plant a tablespoon of 0-15-0 guano. The buds started growing again. But these will probably go for 11 or 12 weeks in total. Strawberry Kush bx1, also taking her good old time. Tall Harlequin I have two Harlequins growing. Both doing great. This short one will be the first to come down. She has some nice purpling in the bud crowns. Blueberry Quintessa should also be ready by week 9.
  3. Two or three years ago I thought I had all the genetics i could every want. No more seed buying. Since then I have made several more purchases. I can't help myself. Cannabis is not addictive. But, my addiction to buying seeds is as gripping as heroin.
  4. I have not been keeping up with this grow log. I’ll try to catch you up. Here are the plants about three weeks ago. Everything humming along. Roughly six weeks into flowering. The lights are the ViparSpectra XS2000 quantum board style lights. 240 watts each at full power. The lights are dimable; mine are turned down to about 85% because the tops are too close to the lights.
  5. @gardenartus Are you still growing? Or are you focusing now on medibles? Your CBD dummies look good. The lemon cookies looked delicious too.
  6. I haven’t been able to post anything for the past week or two. Sorry about that. Anyways, it’s day 24 of flowering and things are looking good. I gave each plant 3 tablespoons of the Rainbow Mix bloom formula when flowering started. Eleven days ago each plant got 2 teaspoons of fish emulsion. They also got 2 more tablespoons of the bloom mix, so five in total. The plants are loving it. Harlequin Harlequin Strawberry Kush bx1 Strawberry Kush bx1 x Afghan CBD Aurora Indica x Strawberry Kush bx1 Blueberry Quintessa
  7. What month does this finish? Nice looking buds.
  8. I started cannabis breeding four years ago when I unwittingly grew out a male mystery sativa plant which pollinated my entire grow. I got seeds from Strawberry Kush, Harlequin, and AK-47. The Strawberry Kush offspring was the only decent cross. But i used it to create the backcross and several other crosses after that. Strawberry Kush bx1 x Afghan CBD is one of my all time favorite plants. I grow that one a lot. The Aurora Indica cross is something I haven't tried yet. But, I like both parents so it should be decent. Strawberry Kush is originally a cross between OG Kush and Strawberry Cough. Strawberry Cough is the strain that tasted like strawberries. I can't say i have ever tasted strawberries from my plants. This Strawberry Kush bx1 is a real stinker while growing.
  9. Good stuff. Are you saying that you add feather meal at the beginning of the grow as a late-developing source of nitrogen for later in the grow? Or do you add it in and let it decompose some before planting?
  10. The line-up for this grow: Strawberry Kush bx1; Strawberry Kush bx1 x Afghan CBD; Aurora Indica x Strawberry Kush bx1; Blueberry Quintessa; and two Harlequin plants. Today is F3. It may not show in this photo, but I need to do some more super-cropping to keep the canopy down.
  11. Welcome back. Ain't life a bitch.
  12. All of this was based on guesswork. It wound up being a bit nitrogen-rich for some of the plants, especially at first. I have another batch of soil I need to re-charge now waiting in a big plastic bin. I'll get to it soon.
