Day 33 (Vegetative Phase: 29)

 

-Weight: 1kg 232g

 

- Foliar Spray: Destress (.5ml to .5 fl oz of water)

 

Day 34 (Vegetative Phase: 30)

 

- Weight: 1kg 118g

 

- Nine blade leaves are developing. The last plant did not develop nine blade leaves until vegetative phase day 55.

 

Day 35 (Vegetative Phase: 31)

 

- Weight: 1kg 078g

 

- I sprayed the top soil down some before top dressing with another tablespoon of magnesium sulfate.

 

- This new main light source is causing the plant to use more magnesium than the previous light source.

 

- Foliar sprays: WayAhead10x mixed together with Brix [(Mixing ratio- 1 part WayAhead10x : 4 parts Brix) .125ml to .5ml in ..5flox of water]

 

Day 46 (Vegetative Phase: 42)

 

- Foliar spray: Destress (.5ml to .5floz of water)

 

Day 47 (Vegetative Phase: 43)

 

- Food/Water: In a liter of water Growth Energy plus Tea (3.69ml + 2ml)

 

Day 51 (Vegetative Phase: 47) Transplant to final container

 

- Weight: 1kg 271g

 

- Foliar Spray: Brix (.5ml to .5floz of water)

 

- Transplant plus Tea (3.69ml + 1ml) in a liter of water poured on the top soil. With an additional two liters of plain water in the tray.

 

Day 54 (Vegetative Phase: 50)

 

- Foliar Spray: Destress (.5ml to .5floz of water)

 

- Water: 1 liter in the tray.

 

Thoughts:

-Thanks to my error during the transplant, I have some nitrogen toxicity showing at the moment. At the time of transplanting I should have given the plant a quarter strength dose of Transplant instead of a full dose.

 

In other news... another order for Afghan Kush seeds arrived a few days ago. I also received two, feminized, original Skunk #1 seeds that came as freebies. With my current grow space I would have to put straight the Skunk #1 plants straight into flowering. Much like Katsu Kush x Sannie's Jack seeds I have.

Day 56 (Vegetative Phase: 52)

 

- I raised the main light source about 5cm.

 

- Added 1 tablespoon of magnesium sulfate to the top soil and wet it down with water. Scratched in 76g of “Recharge” since the plant is using a lot of magnesium. This is normally added around the third week of flowering.

 

- The plant is about 53cm tall.

 

- Five days without food.

 

Day 57 (Vegetative Phase: 53)

 

- Foliar Spray: Weak destress (less than .25ml to .5floz)

 

- Off of the meristem, the nodes are barely starting to alternate. The secondary branches are showing alternating nodes.

 

Day 58 (Vegetative Phase: 54)

 

- Foliar Spray: Brix+WayAhead 10x (In .5floz of water- .5ml +. 1ml)

 

- Raised the main light source.

 

- Seven days without food, four days without water.

 

Day 60 (Vegetative Phase: 56)

 

- Eight days without food, five days without water

 

- Food/Water: Quarter strength “Transplant” (.96ml) in about 4L of water.

 

Day 61 (Vegetative Phase: 57)

 

- Foliar Spray: Destress- (.5ml to .5floz)

 

Day 62 (Vegetative Phase: 58 )

 

- Water: 2L in the tray

 

Day 64 (Flower Phase 1)

 

- Light Schedule: Starts with 11 on / 13 off (Total darkness this week 91 hours)

 

- Raised the main light source about 2.5cm and increased the intensity of the electricity powering the main light source to about 1,050mA (1.05Amps).

 

- Pruned the plant some

 

- Water: 1L in the tray

 

- Foliar Spray: Weak destress (less than .25ml to .5floz)

 

Day 65 (Flower Phase 2)

 

- Foliar Spray: Brix (1ml to 1floz)

 

- Raised the main light source about 13cm

 

Day 67 (Flower Phase 4)

 

-Food/Water: Growth Energy + Transplant + Tea (3.69ml + .96ml + 1ml) in about 4L of water

 

Day 68 (Flower Phase 5)

 

- Foliar Spray: Destress (1ml to 1floz)

 

The plant is about 78cm tall and I get to start typing branches back as I had to with previous grows.

 

Day 70 (Flower Phase 7)

 

- Food/Water: Quarter strength “Transplant” (.96ml) in about 4L of water.

 

Day 71 (Flower Phase 8 )

 

- Foliar Spray: Brix+WayAhead 10x (In 1floz of water- 1ml + .25 ml)

 

- Lighting schedule: Week 2 (10.5 on / 13.5 off) Total darkness this week 94.5 hours. Total overall darkness by the end of the week 185.5 hours.

 

For the sake of information: Remember Cannabis is a short day / long night flower. Longer nights give the plant more time to produce more flower clusters. More flower clusters adds to the dry harvest weight. Although I may harvest more than the last grow, I am expecting at least two ounces(dry weight).

Details:

 

Day 73 (Flowering Phase 10)

Day 84 (Flower phase 21)

IMAG1970

IMAG1971

IMAG1973

 

Details:

Day 76 (Flower Phase 13)

 

- Light Schedule: (10 hours on / 14 hours off) 98 hours of total darkness for the week. At the end of week three the plant will have received 283.5 hours of darkness. With the commonly pushed 12/12 lighting schedule the plant would have received 252 hours of darkness.

 

Day 78 (Flowering Phase 15)

 

- Foliar Spray: Brix (1ml to 1floz)

 

- Water: 2L in the tray

 

Day 79 (Flowering Phase 16)

 

- Water: 1.5L in the tray

 

Day 81 (Flowering Phase 18)

 

- Foliar Spray: Destress (1ml to 1floz)

 

- Water: 1L in the tray

 

Day 82 (Flowering Phase 19)

 

- Food/water: Cat Drench + Tea (about 5ml +1ml) in 4L of water

 

- Recharge: 76g scratched into the top soil. This just adds more minerals for the soil food web to use for the plant's needs.

 

Day 83 (Flowering Phase 20)

 

- Water: 2L in the tray

 

Day 84 (Flowering Phase 21) End of week three begining of week four.

 

- Light Schedule: (9.5 hours on / 14.5 off) 101.5 hours of darkness for the week. At the end of week four the plant will have received 385 hours of darkness. Under the 12 / 12 lighting schedule... the plant would receive 336 hours of darkness.

 

- Pruning: Mid bloom prune to increase air flower, reduce energy draining where flower clusters are not developing well enough. The pictures do not really show any difference since all of the pruned plant matter was a lot of the older growth below the widest part of the plant. A lot of other growers might claim, in their own opinion, I did not prune "enough" off.

 

Trichomes are showing and some mid bloom fading is happening.

 

- Water: 4L with a quarter strength Transplant in the tray.

 

Day 86 (Flowering Phase 23)

 

- Foliar Spray: Brix + WayAhead10x (about .88ml + about .22ml) in 1floz of water. When compared to the kit instructions the previous amount was too much... not that the plant did not like it.
