  1. In a renewed effort to control height, I am back to plant training. Getting better at it too. For a while i gave up plant training in favor of defoliation, to better appreciate the natural forms of the cannabis plant. But i don't like growing tall plants. This is a clone of the Strawberry Kush i just harvested. The plant was defoliated before flowering was initiated. Since then, the canopy thickened up. These are before and after images of the plant's latest defoliation. Day 16 of flowering. Before defoliation: After defoliation:
  2. A picture is worth a thousand words. This is a very cool grow journal.
  3. I used this when i grew in soil, before i started trying to mix my own. Maybe if i had focused on learning to use it properly i wouldn't have switched to coir.
  4. Maybe it's not a curing problem? Maybe it is more related to how the plants finish. My plants grow in coir. I use four different feeding solutions. One for veg. Another for early bloom. A third for mid-flower. The last for late flower. If i want to harvest a plant at nine weeks, the plant receives the late bloom feed at full strength during weeks 6 and 7. During the 8th week, I feed the plant at half-strength. At the end of 8 weeks, i flush the plant so it only gets water during the last week. This ensures that the nutrients in the plant all get metabolized properly before harvest. The smells you are getting could be from weed with too much nutrients still in the flowers, not yet metabolized. If you are growing in soil, the plant may be pulling too much nitrogen if the soil is rich. This can lead to the funky grass smell. I haven't tried this, but it may be worth a shot. Cut the plant and let the branches sit in a water vase for a few days. This will help the flowers finish up all of the available nutrients. Then, let them dry. Good luck solving that problem.
  5. It's not legal around here. But when someone is suffering and can benefit from what you have, and you have enough to share, why not? The government cannot legislate morality. I would rather my actions be moral than legal.
  6. Strawberry Kush, day 55 of flowering. Loaded with seeds. I met a woman who suffers from some hereditary bone disorder. She was in a lot of pain. I asked if she had ever tried cannabis. She told he she had a medical cannabis card from another state. So i gave her some weed. She was very grateful. There went my buffer, though. I had a lot of variety, until i gave away most of my stash. Then i ran out of indicas. Then i harvested Harlequin. Harlequin is good for pain. But it is low THC. I burn through it a lot faster than other varieties. Strawberry Kush wasn't ready to harvest. The plan is to flush it after today. Keep it going on fresh water through the coming week. By next weekend, withhold water. Chop the plant after it dies. I want the seeds to be viable and eager to sprout. Two small branches made for an early harvest
  7. As tiny as they are, i love the colors. Stunning.
  8. Gonna be spectacular in full flower
  9. This Black Jack is a tall plant. By node-3 it was 8 inches high. To keep her short, the stem was bent horizontal. 24 days old and already halfway around the pot. Planning on an 8 week veg.
