Hi guys newbie here. Just thought id pop in and make a progress thread, why not? :) Got 5 ak48 fem seeds that all germinated well. I had a little accident as a pot fell over and i had to search the soil looking for the seedling lol. Shes alright now just stuck her back in the soil before she started rooting in the carpet. Anyways they are in black label growin medium which is 60/40 mix of coco and clay pebbles. Feeding coco a&b. They are getting 12 hours of hps and 6 hours of cfl. As my small lsd plant is in flowering. Thats why they have to go under the cfl for the 6 hours i dont want to flower them yet and i only have one hps. I want them to have as much light as they can to grow strong. I plan on topping them once before they remain in the flowering room with the lsd and let them recover well. Anyway i hope everyone is well and feel free to comment. Im ready to upload some pictures but not sure how. Ill give it a go tonight when i get in.

Ak48 are doing well now. Getting abit bigger, think they will just take off soon now they have established themselves. Amount of times i have dropped these pots and have to refill with soil is crazy. Need to be more careful. Lsd is getting bigger. Ill upload a pic soon.. thanks for looking! :peace:

I tied my ak48 down today. Going to get them to bush out a little. Maybe flip them in two weeks? I know alot of people support the stem when tying them down but ive never had a problem. Anyway here are a few pics of the lsd first. Shes looking really nice.

Hi, thanks guys. I had abit of a problem over the last few days. Everytime i was watering the leaves seemed to droop. I knew i wasnt overwatering. I looked under the pots and roots was bursting out. So i quickly went to the shop and grabbed some soil. I didnt break any roots it was a clean transplant for all of them. Talk about rootbound! Repotted them all into 15l pots and they have bounced right back today. Thought it would stunt the growth but they are very happy now it seems. So far i would recommend ak48 as they are pretty tough and clone well. BUT that could all change at harvest time. How is ak48 to smoke? Is it strong high? LSD from barneys farm is a beautiful plant. Let me just say its my fav of all time so far! I think it will be ready in about a week or two, but i always time harvest wrong. Always too early! Let me know what you think, and how she looks. Thanks guys! Oh yeah i took some clones off my ak48. They rooted within 7 days. And are growing well now. But i dont want them. Taking up too much space. Think they will end up in the bin! Sorry about the pictures. Maybe tilt your head to the side :)

I have found that when I transplant to larger size pots in vegetative growth in the majority of occasions all plants respond with new growth and no transplant stress.

AK48 is floral, very resinous, and potent to smoke or vaporize.

Can you please use a photograph editor to rotate your photographs before you upload them, it is very hard on my neck to turn sideways?

Here is a photograph guide that may aid you in rotating your photographs before you upload them

Thanks for taking the time to reply. Ive uploaded some better photos as im getting the hang of these forums. I was abit worried about transplanting during flower but they didnt show any signs of stress so i was very pleased. I had to chop a cola off the lsd due to abit of bud rot. Not because of my growing enviroment but due to the lack of care of putting plants back into the tent. I crushed a cola of the lsd and a few days later it showed signs of rot. But all was not lost i cut the good buds out. Obviously wont be as potent as the rest is going to be wen it comes down in a week.

Well its been awhile now so i thought id sure the end of my journey. They are finishing up now id say all will be done in the next two weeks except one. Looks like it could go another month! Ive got a few pictures, this plant looks ready to me now. And its been 7 weeks since i flipped the lights not 7 weeks since i first saw pistils. Its a really fast finisher and really potent. Smoked a sugar leaf last night and it blew me away. Im expecting the dried bud to be better. I really should of kept a cutting of this early finishing pheno. Wow ak48 stinks towards the end of flowering. Heres a pic of the early finisher...

If you look carefully you might be able to make out two blue cheese and a very lanky lsd from barneys farm. :D
