In the high brix kit, they spray fish guts (not fish poop) till right about the end of bloom. The fish spray triggers enzyme which then exudate out the roots which then becomes a trading currency with soil microbes for ionic elements. That said, I've been adopting these techniques to up my game and hit the ground running in soil. Since I'm in soil, might as well aim for high brix as high brix plants are alleged to not be attractive to insects in the first place, plus also the smoke is supposed to be superior to everything else.

plants are looking great sky im with you I like the soil grown pc over the hydro and in the end the soil grown is going to be noticeably tastier it looks like you got the bugs worked out now get down to some serious growing that 3 blade could end up being something special:)have a good one bud!
Thanks Sticky! I'll remain optimistic about the difference in smoke flavors, but I want to emphasize that my smoke was already super sweet and super smooth, though TBH, I don't think I've ever smoked any good organic bud, so I have no room for comparison, but I really think my hydro will stack up well, but only time will tell how that prediction goes, lol.

As to bugs, I definitely didn't figure anything out, I just don't think I got any yet. But then again, I got so many floaters bouncing around in my pupils that I'm not sure if I don't see any bugs, or if it's just eyeball floaters I keep seeing. It's a very funny problem to have, but for now I'm more or less ignoring it as I can't afford to remedy anything if I did have a problem. As is, my highest priority is just getting that 9x9 built and light hung, room sealed and the extraction worked out. Once that 9x9 is producing, I will be able to tackle all the other problems as they come.

I use something called liquid fish its stanky :laugh: the next morning when I open the tent It smells fishy as hell and the plants are vibrant they love that!
Same here! I read an article that suggests that Fish Hydrolysate doesn't stink, but it does. I mix it 1:1 with molasses as I read the mol will help cut the odor, but my romms/plants still smell fishy 2-3 days later. Maybe this is why suggested applications range from 7-14 days between?

Just catching up you have had some great stuff going on, Plants look really nice and you harvested one great job. We had a couple little plants that didn't do much on our last harvest.
Weak harvests are disheartening. It's like a sample of what farmers in droughts feel, or how cash croppers feel when their crop gets jacked a week before harvest. I try not to allow myself to be too sad as I know other folks can have way worse luck.

My strawberry cough mother was a trileaf. 33% more everything.
Unless it was supposed to be a quad leaf, in which case it was 25% less, lol? When I noticed both were tri leaf, it made me question if these are even cannabis plants. To have both of the same strain do that leads me to think maybe it is inherent with this strain (or species, lol).

On another note, I'm losing my shit with how boring these soil plants are. I watered 2 days ago and all pots are still heavy. Like, wtf, drink your juice already so I can top up some pots and get that sense of doing something. Soil growing involves too much waiting and patience.

I dropped mine at 2 days above ground and think that did it. Yours needs a different excuse.
Watering weed in soil is an art. Different circumstances call for slight changes in approach. If you get it right, and you're lucky, you'll be working your ass off come flower time watering every other day. Yea it can be a slow start, but you'll need the energy later.
