Its been a while since I made a journal, lets have a look at what I am doing this time around here on Van.Isl., BC.

1 x Durban Poison >Dutch Passion
1 x Chunky Skunk >Freebie
1 x Sweet Zombie >Freebie
1 x Personal Sativa Fem cultivar (Im trying to revive some seeds I worked on before 2017)

Started indoors from seed Febuary and slowly got them outside by end of April. Put them in the ground by end of April but turned out we had some cold nights lefts and this shocked one of the plants greatly. She is now recovered and days have gotten hotter since.

Put them on the ground April 8 and the Durban Poison started showing early stages of nutrient lockout. It took me a while to figure it out. Iron Magnesium seem like the issue and I added Glacial rock dust to supplement Iron, Mag, Manganese. Also started a Rockweed seaweed compost tea and another compost tea with high nitrogen using stinging nettle and grass cuttings sheep manure and mushroom compost.

Since they are outside I started doing some training, I go hard in the early stage. I break the main cola at the stem and force it be at the same high as the canopy in other to keep the bulk of the hormones and nutrients at "same travel distance from the rest". Equal distritution of the plant juice keeps the plant low/bushy, every point of break heals and creates a big bulge making every branch sturdy and ready to handle weight.

I do selective node-ing by removing the lower nodes and only leaving the fan leaves.

Hey another Canadian looking good my friend sorry to hear about the shock but she seems to be bouncing back!
Hey there bud,
thanks for dropping by. Yeah it was a shock for the plant the crazy cold days around late April but they seem pretty fine now. Days are getting hot and very long and the plants love it.

I couldnt resist and went back 3 days after I did intense trainning and the surprise was they all went back up. Standing tall and most of the bending and breaking has healed you can see the big bulges forming. The plants exploded since last update.
Durban Poison was the one hurting from suspected iron-mag nutrient lockout and is very close to fully recovered.

All dry days since last update, so went and watered heavy with both seaweed tea and nitrogen rich tea.

They are pumping.

5 days since I did some trainning, plants just go up. They are responding favorably to everything I am doing. Today I took pictures before I did a big training sesion, including bending, breaking, node-ing, defol.

Added to the mix Bio-char, organic bone meal and worm castings, also watered again using seaweed compost tea and nitrogen rich compost tea.

The Canna is part of a bigger picture the whole place is being grown following permaculture practices, so the canna is sharing space with many many diferent plant, Its the first time I incorporate Canna and permaculture.

I used to but nothing special just fast food shit was at a Tim Hortons for almost 5 years before I moved into welding which is what I was referring to. Our shop is like a oven and I know there is ways to cool it down our owners don’t care they got AC in their offices lol.

My fiancée and I were in Montreal for a week about 5-6 years ago and loved it maybe not the homeless community that kept trying to fight me for smokes lmao.

We went for 420 and in the park by Mount Royal since I didn’t smoke then I’m like look babe the park is on fire look at all the ambulances then she told me lol

Holy crap man thats amazing! I think I'd like to try something like that but i dont know if i make a tea can you buy them?
you can buy liquid Kelp concetrated fertilizer, a lot are made in the west coast, here on the island. Massive Kelp forrest around the coast here so a lot of new fertilizer popping up. Also phytoplankton brew. If you have acces to the coast you can get your hands on seaweed and brew your own. Its simple grab a bunch of seaweed, fill a huge contaniner with rain wated, put the seaweed inside and let ferment for at least 3 months. Then use all of it even the seaweed at the bottom, its great mulch.
Best thing about organic fertilizer is that the plant simply stops taking after it doesnt need it. No chemical taste in the bud and cant really hurt the plant unless it suffers from nutrient lock out.
