Damn that BC01 and GG4 looks amazing! Leaning in all directions under the weight of those buds not too much longer for them to go by the look of it! The Pugsbreath sure is something special!Let’s start with BCO1. She got some water with tea tonight and some Brix spray. I tied a few of her branches up to try and reign her in a little. Here she is!
Thanks P! It’s a bit chilly for sure!Bring on the Snow Show! Damn brotha!
Colder than a polar bear's toenails...
This is true! And I just saw some more I want.....must resist.No ways! You're well stacked up on beans Magoo.
Thanks Krip! They all smell so good. But the Pugsbreath dominates the room with the smell of rancid meat. Lol. I like the smell of BCO3 the best. It’s like cherry jolly ranchers. BCO2 is more like cherry cough drops. BCO1 is like a freshly cleaned room with a hint of lemon.Buds looking great, Brother! How's the smell on those BCO's?
Thanks so much lion! I’m quite fond of them myself!Damn that BC01 and GG4 looks amazing! Leaning in all directions under the weight of those buds not too much longer for them to go by the look of it! The Pugsbreath sure is something special!
As long as you do a "Summer Is Coming" grow this winter ... all will be good in the universe!Hello folks! Welcome to the new journal. As you can tell from the title....big Game of Thrones fan! So what better way to show support than to start this one today, which is also the premier of the final season of the show! Excited to see it but sad it’s coming to an end.
For those of you who aren’t familiar with GOT, that won’t be the focus of this journal! But for the fans, I hope it makes it even better.
The goal of this grow is to try my hand at some breeding. I tried to pick a couple strains with excellent terpenes and a high probability for super frosty trichomes....after all “Winter is Coming!”

I have quadlined all my plants so far ... I went hands-on and learned so much about how the plant grows.THE QUADLINE METHOD!
So the quadline is the method I use for training my plants. It allows me to keep the height of my canopy under control, which is necessary in my 2x4x5 tent. But beyond that I really enjoy the hands on time with the plants during the veg stage of life. The way we manipulate the direction they grow allows us to use some of growth hormones within the plants to our advantage. Specifically the auxins, which are present in the stems (among other places). This hormone promotes elongation of the shoots. Gravity and light both play a role in how the auxins function in the plant. When we top above the 4th node, the hormones no longer focus on the main stem and are distributed into the branches below the topping. By removing the lower 2 nodes, we again manipulate the growth hormones into the branches that will have the strength to support the growth of the plant throughout its life. We are left with 4 mains to channel energy into! As we train the 4 branches out, we can remove any shoots that come from the bottom of these branches to allow for further channeling of energy where we want it! As we train out toward the edge of the pot, we want to keep a slight upward angle to the main branches. If we let them be too flat(I’m guilty of this) then the plant becomes confused and will allow the inner shoots to outgrow the ends of the main branches. This is the effect gravity has on the auxins. So we want them to have an upward angle as in nature but we want to control this so that we end up with an even canopy with lots of strong branches to hold up a lot of produce. As I do some training along the way, I’ll highlight each step so that anyone interested can see what I’ve just described. Hopefully the end result is something like this...
@Asesino85 for teaching me this method!
