Day 69, day 36 flower

No activity.
Pistils starting to darken noticeably over last couple days. Buds look decent at this point just need them to fatten up much more.

Acapulco gold has the tacoing leaves and bluecheese with no tacoing. Just the tip

Day 71, day 38 flower

Bluecheese - fed yesterday morning with full strength week 5 recommended nutrients for the last time. Will be switching to week 6 feeding next week with bud booster in between. 4-5 days between watering.

Acapulco - no activity as she still feeling full, half inch down still moist. Shes taking water slower than BC.
Fan fell on her last night but she survived except a couple of her colas got bent and damaged but didnt snap off. She will get one last week 5 nutes then switching to week 6 and bud booster. Because she is sativa dominant i can see harvesting her a couple weeks after BC. 5-6 days between waterings

Seeing how much both plants top colas are more ripe compared to 2nd level colas i may split the harvest at different times. 4x harvest...4x the work.

Ended up feeding with week 6 nutes at 1110ppm despite what i said above. I think the some trichomes are turning cloudy? Is this normal for this time or am i just not seeing right. Mixture of both clear and cloudy i think. This strain is 8 weeks according to the site mjseeds. I will flush despite all the different opinions on it, makes me feel better lol. So im starting my week 6 nutes which elimates grow at 2-1-6 and adds bloom 0-5-4. I will be adding bud booster 0-0-62 in for a couple weeks then flushing for 10 days. This is a sativa so my timelines could be all wrong. The 2nd level buds dont look mature at all, will probably have to cut main and let the rest keep going.

The fan head fell on the lowest budsite and missed the rest, just almost broke the bud site on the bottom right. Fan is not small so could have been alot worst. The stand tipped when i was taping the filter against the tent to reduce dust.

Day 73, day 40 flower

Bluecheese auto - First feeding with bud booster 0-0-62 this morning, mixed bubbled tap watered with 1.16g/litre at 900ppm 6.4ph. Will see how she takes to this loading of potassium, i plan to give this every other feeding until flush. Trichomes still seem to be clear with some cloudy i think from what i can see with my 30x mag. I have a 60x and 90x but damn is that ever tough to hold still. No amber trichomes just yet which is good as i want to get at least a couple more feeds of bud booster as well as a 7-10 day flush. Read about both sides of flushing last night for over an hour and im starting to really ponder if i should actually flush or not. With that said ive decided i will still flush for BC and AG, and this is based on talking with the green planet rep and seeing their recommended feed charts, both mentioning flush to finish.
2nd level pistils are darkening more now and starting to curl. I will be checking trichomes daily as i want to harvest BC with about 25% amber.

Thanks mrS! She is frosty indeed and im quite happy how its turning out, leaves are all still green and healthy with very minimal deficiencies! Ive learned how important is it to have an even canopy throughout the grow, amongst a million other things. Im looking forward to chopping her down and trimming but the excitement will be short lived as the first chop will probably be just the main cola

Acapulco gold leaves really starting to curl. Light has been at 22" for a couple days from 19". Still light too close or could it be something else? Curl is getting worse, almost touching itself...........:laugh:.... spreading further down.

Edit: Looking like its fan leaves, sugar leaves are not curled from what i can see

Temp 24c
Humidity 40%
41k lux
22" top cola
26" to other colas

Too much Heat or light causes the tacoing. Your temps look good so I would raise the lights a little more. It’s suspect because I run COB’s at 14-18 inches. I would think you would be ok at that distance. Do you think you are getting a spike in temps that you don’t realize?

No spikes in temperature, reading 24.9c for max

Sometimes if a fan is blowing directly on the top of the plant the heat gets mixed in and will also cause the curl you see, moreso if your RH is low but yours seems OK. If the fan is in fact blowing on them just move it up higher.

Ill raise oscillating fan to blow above canopy and not at it, will also raise light slightly.

I was told this could also be a mites issue? Sure hope not!

I noticed you said 40% rh is "OK", isnt this the humidity you wanna keep it at during flower?

I got a tiny dehumidifer in there to keep it at that otherwise if higher is okay i can remove from tent.

Yes! It's perfect. I guess it's how it sounded in my head but came out different in text :)

Geez I'd say anytime now. I didn't see any amber but lot's of cloudy, and looking at the cola pic it has that ready look. :)
