Well I guess I'll just keep this journal going with the two latest members of the tent. Early auto Gorilla Glue is moving along now, and creme mandarin is right behind her! It was supposed to be Zamdelica joining second but she'll be coming in this weekend after getting up-potted into the 5 gallon.

3/10 was doing some watering or tent maintenance and bumped the power supply off the top of the led light which fell on my hand and yanked the connectors off the board. Luckily I have the HPS still in the tent so it took over, giving enough light right now at 250W over clocked to 400W with the ballast. I'll fix the led but for the time being this is doing fine for a week if I need it.

I moved Zamdelica to the big tent after up potting a 5 gallon fabric pot. I've used 1,2,3, and 7 but this is the first time with 5. I bought some FF HP soil and perlite and surrounded her root ball in the new pot. She was starting to complain loudly that the old 1 gallon was too small with the yellowing lowest leaves. Also she'll be getting a 3g/G MC mix after this first watering with only water to determine what the new soil will provide.

Light levels with the HPS at this distance is just slightly less than in the little tent with closer smaller light... About 17k lux. The tops of Cream mandarine (right) and Gorilla Glue (left back) are at around 40k lux.

Everyone's grown some and now their new tent mate Chem Beyond Diesel CBD has joined the party. She's just about ready to burst out new pistils and I may have to switch the tent to 12/12 soon so Zamdelica will fit alongside the others when she starts to stretch. She may be the shortest right now, but there's only about 20 inches to grow more before being light damaged.

Well there's been some stretching the last few days from CBD. She's reaching for 25" now and pistils are sprouting out although not in the amount I would've expected at this rate of stretch. Zamdelica is about 17" now so I've added the 240w led back into the tent at 2/3 power and the 250w hps no longer over clocked. Got the ac on now since it's warm outside so 72 keeps the tent under 80 at this light level.

5 days and 3 more inches for CBD now. She's got more pistils but I decided yesterday to lower the light per day by 2 hours to both speed up the other two and make some room for the upcoming Zamdelica clones.

CBD slowly flowering

And Zamdelica has decided to start flowering as well. She's not an auto but wants to get going I guess. Lowering the light by 2 hours per day should speed this up too. If I don't see a lot more pistils in the next few days, I may drop to just flower at 12/12 and get this closet into flower mode full time.

Took some more pics last night but forgot to upload.

Blue Ace is close. I looked at trichs this morning but there are still some clear and I only saw like one or two amber. While this is a primarily CBD girl, I want it to be a sleep assistant so will let her go another week probably to get some amber in there. Leaves are starting to get dark so fall is here for her and she knows her time is due.

JH still has a few weeks to go, pushing out new pistils. Will check trichs next week.

Blueberry looks nice and pretty at two weeks of flower. Looking at beginning of March for harvest for her and the next girl.

Ice cool will be the biggest I think. I'm hoping the tent gives me a pound this group, but more likely gonna be like 11 OZ altogether

And a group picture for posterity.

Great looking girls! The buds look great! Lot’s of hairs!

So I've changed the light schedule again since there's no slowing down CBD now it looks like. She's the tallest now and I need those buds to start coming out! Even Zamdelica looks like she's more prepared to bud out...

I'm not sure how I'm going to deal with the height if she grows much more...maybe this is the stretch already. There's only 8 more inches until hitting the LED. Z has almost 16 inches to get there as she's only 22in tall while CBD is touching 30".

Looked again at trichs on CMxl today but while they are all cloudy it seems there are few if any amber still. Is it ready? Maybe, but I want sleep medication. Will persist...

Gorilla Glue still chugging along.

The whole tent. CBD is gonna be a monster. She's less then an inch away from the lights today. I lowered the output to under 50% but she's still getting over 50k lumens on her top.

Cream Mandarin XL was on and off the chopping block today. I didn't feel like looking at her anymore in the tent and she's so sticky!

I have to think about where each of the remaining girls will be. I'm gonna have to put Zamdelica under the HPS I think. Inches away from the bulb is over 80k lumens which is just too much I think so CBD is getting almost burned right now.

I had to push CBD back a little bit so it gets the bottom of the HPS light instead of the side of the bulb. This gives her about 55k lumens at her top bud which I like. I've set the led to about 50% which is less than 50k lumens at the top of Z and will adjust as Zamdelica gets tall. Right now she's at 28" so will only grow a few more inches I think. Chem Beyond Diesel CBD is huge at 43" - tallest I've grown in this tent and into the light.

Zamdelica
20210430_124950.jpg



Gorilla Glue getting ready for harvest some time. Her Trichs are almost all cloudy but no amber yet. Buds look a little fluffy still and she's still drinking so must be doing something.

It's gonna be tight when there's 4 or 5 plants in here...

Bye bye, Blueberry, bye bye! Today was the day. Here's a photojournal...in reverse order. :19: :19: :19::51:

Total harvest with some stem to drain upside down...302g. :( I'll be lucky to get 2.5oz out of this.

I bought some 5 gallon pots on a whim on the zon and will be putting Zamdelica in one when she's ready

....onward!
I’m assured you’ll definitely get more out of It. My guess from my experience Is 40 grams of dry bud, from every 100 grams of weight bud. So a good QP, and then some.

My experience with this has given me a 20-25% end product, meaning 100g reduces to 20 to 25g. Remember I'm weighing these with whole stems. This is the weight I'm getting when it's been dried and sitting a month with a 62% boveda and opened once a week and tossed.

I didn't note here what light schedule I changed to...

This way my first light change to 14/10 I think. I wanted to trigger them to start budding FASTER. I had to reduce the light again to 12/12 to trigger the full flowering in both, even though CBD is supposed to be an auto. </SHRUG¿>
