Guano-molass tea fert., 1.5lb+ plant, unknown
Here's some pics from my almost completed first grow. Any one got any ideas about the strain? I think it's basically bag seeds, something of Ecuador or Colombia origin. I got them from a friend.
This was outdoor, grown in 12/12 all natural Ecuadorian (low elevation) sunlight. I used a chicken shit compost mix for soil and fertilized with a guano/molasses tea. I found the guano, it's a type of cave bat I think, it was from bats that were living in the trunk of a tree. I didn't have the most consistent watering schedule so I think some of the yellowing of leaves was due to that. Plants took 5+ months to harvest, some of them are still growing.
The buds continue to show new growth, little bud towers growing up out of the mass of old bud. Anyone seen this before? Check out the pics of the heady nug.
I assume it's a Sativa heavy variety. Very nice 'head' high with just enough body high mixed in, but nothing like 'couchlock', good daytime high.
Plant setup. 4 months in.
Shot of one of the two biggest plants. This yielded over a pound dry.
Up close of the bud, after 4 months, one more to go! Any ideas about a strain? or the genetics?
After 5 months. This plant is still flowering, going to give it another few weeks and see how long I can get it to go for... New fresh bud growth continues...
Ready for harvest at 5 months. The top cola got dried out because that support stick was rubbing against the trunk of the plant at the top - happened after not visiting my plants for 5 days. 1 lb. 9 oz. yielded, dry.
Drying.... This is all from one plant.
One of the headier nugs. This weighed an ounce dry. I'm not a stickler for trimming by any means. The way the buds grew, it is almost impossible to trim anyways. Almost all the larger leaves have dried up and been pulled out by this point.
Up close of the heady nug hanging upside down. You can see the 'towers' of bud that started growing out of the cola.
Trichome shot, so-so quality. I put my digital camera up to the eye piece of a 40x loupe. A few visibly amber trichomes.
What do you all think?
Anyone else growing outdoor in Ecuador? Or near the Equator? What strains do you like?
