  1. Six weeks of veg and this is Day 46 of flower. Used urban farms veg fert at 1 tbsp every watering through 2 week of flower then switched to urban farms garden of eden. Upgraded light to a electric sky 180 and it seems to be doing the trick. One other thing I did this time was alot of stem breaking. Every couple days during veg I would go through and crush all the stems and then let them heal while crushing the new growth. As you can see the main stem on this thing is big, bigger than a quarter but not quite half dollar sized. I defoliated the last day of veg and day 21 of flower. Going to defoliate again in a couple day. Plant is starting to turn colors, get some purple showing up. My first go around with octopots I wasn't very impressed, i experimented alot with that grow so im sure it was my fault but this time around I definitely see what people were talking about. Never had a plant with growth like this and there's still a couple weeks left to go.
  2. So I must have pissed off the growing gods. Could not get any of my silverfields seeds to germinate. Moved onto ouzbekistan from USC. 4 of 6 germinated but only 1 of the 4 that germinated have shown any growth since planting. Had to physically crack the seeds open because the shells were so thick the seedlings werent able to escape. So then tried 4 Black Afghani from usc. Got 1 of those 4 to germinate. Have a couple more trying to germinate currently. Idk what's going on , 2 out of 15 seeds with a viable seedling.. I have never had issues germinating seeds before.
  3. Well time to start another grow. Going to give octopots another go. I will be running 3 pots with 3 feminized silverfields. I was thinking of trying a all perlite sleeve in one of the octopots. Not sure if that would work or not. I was thinking like a hybrid hempy bucket but wondering if it would dry out superfast being in the cloth bag. Any input would be great. Going to be using the urban farms vegetable fert for veg and then switch to garden of eden for flower. Order a new light, electric sunshine 180, it's on sale through September if you were looking at getting one. Was going to go with the 300 for my 2x4 tent but they are backlogged. No pics yet, seeds are soaking and need to clean the tent.
  4. I think it would be really dependent on where you live and seasons. In the winter I only get 8-9 hours of sunshine a day. I'm sure with enough panels and storage batteries you could make it work but that could get costly. I would look at your electric bills and see how much you are averging to get a idea of the system size you would been.
  5. Dried, trimmed and jarred. 4oz of the smelliest shit I have ever smelt. I thought chuckys bride was a stinker. Last week of flower and during the hang dry my carbon filter could not keep up. Even now when I empty jars during cure I have to put the buds back in the tent with the carbon filter because just 10 mins out this morning my entire house still stunk when I got home from work 8 hours later. Chucky had denser flowers , these are a little airy but not bad. I'm telling you all perlite hempy buckets with osmocote crf fertilizer is a very easy way to grow with good results. I didn't have any issues this grow. Only additives I used was cal/mag since I was using RO water and hydroguard. Also 1 tsp of Jacks bloom booster for 3 waterings during weeks 5 and 6 of flower(Definitely not needed I just had it on hand and decided to give it a go) Never tested or adjusted PH or anything, no deficiencies just happy plants all grow. Definitely helped having the bigger buckets this grow,, the one gallon buckets from the chucky grow caused alot of issues.. This grow outperformed my previous grow with octopots.
  6. Also looks like I may have some inadvertent seeds. I didn't poke around to deeply since I did just a quick trim removing large leaves. Found some popped bananas. Doesn't really matter to me since it's all personal use and I vape everything. I actually hope to find some seeds.
  7. Got them chopped and hanging. I dry in my tent. I have the exhaust fan at its lowest setting. Do you guys have any other fans going if you dry in tents? Currently I have a small fan turning on for 15 mins every hour. Would it be better to just leave it off and use the exhaust fan as the only air circulation in the tent?
  8. Day 51 of flower. Could have chopped them today, mostly cloudy with 15-20 amber and still some clear tric. to give them one more water and plan on cutting them on Wednesday. Decided against revegging.
  9. So a question about revegging. You cut the tops off and leave some small bud sites from the bottom of the stems and then turn the lights back to 18/6 correct? Then do you just takes clones from the reveg and make a mother plant?
  10. Day 42 I fed with jacks 5-12-26 twice this week and now going back to plain water for the remainder of the grow. Some of the pistils are going orange so I'm guessing maybe 2 more weeks. Will be removing fan leaves tomorrow. The smell on these plants is regoddamndiculous. Reminds me of Jilly bean from TGA, fruity bubblegum. Starting to feel bad about not being able to make seeds and save this strain.
  11. I got these seeds as freebies. Probably a stupid question but Is this a pure cbd strain or is there thc as well? What's the effect you get when smoked?
  12. Day 35 of flower. So far running on only the osmocote CRF granuales as fertilizer. Today's water I added 1/2 teaspoon of Jack's bloom and see how it handles it. I do have the Jack's pk boost which I may add in a week if this feed doesn't show any over fertilization issues. Plants are growing like champs.
  13. I have a big enough seedbank to not really care about losing this strain. As long as I have my stash of Chucky's bride f2 Im fine. Plus I have so many strains I haven't grown out that I'm not going to mess around with revegging .
