GDP #3 Trichomes

Harvest draws near, as can be seen with the trichomes on GDP #3. Tomorrow when the lights go out I'll disconnect them and let the plant enjoy 48 hrs of darkness before I cut it and GDP#1 down.

GDP #2 entered flower later and still has a week or two to go. The leaves are curling or tacoing at the top, indicating it's too close to the light. It's too late to do anything at this point, so I'll just let it go. It's late, but I'll do a major defoliation on her in the near future. She's been grown as an ornamental to date, and it's time for her to produce what she can.

The fungus gnats are gone, or at least well under control. Very few adults have been caught by the yellow sticky traps during the past few days.

The remaining parts for the automatic watering upgrade are on their way. There's a filter, accumulator (mini pressure tank) and a normally closed electric valve on their way. I'll do a write up on this as I have time available.

How's the chopping going Salt?
I forgot to turn the power off to the light, so it will be Thursday now. Yesterday was snow clearing. Today it's an instructional post.

I definitely have 2 different phenos from my gdp's. one has shorter fat leaves the other has longer more narrow leaves that looks a lot like yours. the one with the fat leaves seems to be a bit of a pig for nutes.

I just checked the trichomes on another part of the plant. I've granted them a stay of execution for a few more days. :laugh:

At lights out tonight I'll cut the power to the DIY COB array for GDP #1 and GDP #3. I'll give them the chop on Wednesday, after about 60 hrs of darkness.

GDP #2 was hauled out of the tent to take pictures for the Photo and Plant of the Month contests. This is a copy of my Photo of the Month entry for the current contest. You'll need to wait for Plant of the Month until the next contest opens.

I really like you trichome shots! The bird getting into your picture was definitely 1 in a million! Great photos all around!

mom sure you’ve posted it somewhere, but what is it you use for the trichome shots? Is it IOS compatible?

Jiusion 40 to 1000x Magnification Endoscope

I'm fairly certain there is an IOS version. They do have a WiFi version available with higher resolution. I cut a small piece of bud from the plant and take the image at my desktop. The stand it comes with on the right is not stable enough to focus the microscope properly, so I bought the optional stand. I have to remove the protective collar as shown at higher magnifications. I bought through Amazon. The descriptions are below.

Jiusion 40 to 1000x Magnification Endoscope, 2MP 8 LED USB 2.0 Digital Microscope, Mini Camera with OTG Adapter and Mental Stand, Compatible with Mac Window 7 8 10 Android

WOW. That is beautiful lol I’m growing a few different Dr. Seeds genetics right now under a Mars TS 3000 (first grow with Dr Seeds,first grow with ts3000) I’ve done a few rinky dink grows over the years but never really worried about humidity, never used good soil or anything really. Lol But I recently purchased a whole new 4x4 set up that I’m getting dialed in half decently and this is giving me hope

well done kind sir!

Thanks for that OS!
ive been looking at them in the past, just never pulled the trigger because I wanted to make sure I got the iOS compatible unit. Our computer is crap, so it would probably have to be done on my phone.
