    Congrats on the females. How long do you think it will be before you get the harvest in?
    Do you have a specific date in mind or are you just going to keep the grow going?

    to Traficant, nesbarb, and ms fox. I really appreciate the rep. I really appreciate your support and comments. For DGMGH, I didn't really have a specific date in mind, but I fiqure 16 weeks, seed to harvest. So sometime around sept 15th, I plan to take a cutting from one of the females just prior to harvest, after I have had a chance to take a small bud from each, do a quick dry and smoke test. then see if I can clone it.

    I will post some pictures tomorrow of the girls and the small buds that are starting to show up.

    Wolfie,

    16 weeks sounds about perfect from seed to harvest. With the C02 you may even find it to be a quicker harvest? Either way, there is going to be the satisfaction from growing your own. Nothing beats that!!!

    Ok, here are a few pictures of the bud growth on the two remaining females after 14 days into the 12/12 cycle.






    the males that I put outside really stretched in the past 14 days, I would say they are about 3-3.5 feet tall. One had some really well developed pollen sacs, that I am going to harvest and see if I can freeze the pollen for some cross breeding. I smoked some of the leaves that I dried and the top most pollen bud and it definitely appears to be a sativa strain.

    I just received some seeds from a friend that I am going to start within the next 2 weeks, It will give me a chance to put everything I've learned on this first grow to good use. Starting with a slightly different soil mixture and better control of the pH.

    Hopefully, the bud development on the current females will continue and get bigger since I have started using a Home made CO2 bottle (just visible at the bottom of the last picture) and have begun using MG Bloom booster (15-30-15) at 1/4 strenght. althought I realized that I probably need to put my exhaust fan on a timer, so I am not exhausting the CO2 as soon as it leaves the bottle. I will set the fan up to come on once an hour for 10 minutes, Hopefully that will allow the CO2 accumalate around the plant and be absorbed.

    Well day 18 into 12/12 cycle and I think I may need to add more perlite to my soil mix next time. I am watering them with Bloom Booster about every 3rd day with 40% mixture now. I am a little concerned because the soil doesn't seem to be really absorbing the solution that well. I will monitor it and see it get worst as time goes on. The 2 females that I moved to the grow cabinet for the flowering stage have not really stretched at all. the flowers are forming really well, but I thought they would stretch more.

    On a side note, one of the plants I thought was a male actually turned out to be a female and I place her back in the grow box. Below are some pictures.



    I am really getting excited, I love watching this ladies grow. It is hard to believe that I will be possibly start harvesting in about another month. I can't wait.

    No set date for the harvest, I will be watching them and using a jewel's loupe to gauge the color of the Trichomes. I really want to pick them at the peak, if I can.

    What stage do you think you will pick? What I mean is when the trich's are about half brown or are you going for full maturity? I've read that if picked fully harvested, plants can get a bit more body stone that head stone? Can't be sure, just something I read..

    Your on the right lines DGMGH

    More cloudy white the more buzzy head high, the more amber brown the more of a couch lock full body high. Depending on what you want obviously, but a good ratio of 70-30 brown to white provides a perfect all round smoke.

    Fuuji, DG, I will be looking for anything around 50/50 or 60/40 milky/brown. Hopefully that will give me the best buzz and still be able to move somewhat. ;-) (I am already a couch potato as it is)

    Obx, Thanks for the rep and stopping by. I really enjoyed your post on Soil, I am moving away from the MG potting soil and using a mixture similar to what you presented in the post. I have started a compost bin too, to try and make my own compost for use in the grow after next.

    Re: Wolfbuddie/unkown strain/started May 16th 2009

    I was looking at the plants closely today and I see alot of Trichomes showing up on the bud leaves. Here are a few pics.



    and



    I noticed that on flowers at the bottom of the plant are showing about 30% red/brown pistils, while the main colas are still all white. so I guess my question is if the bottom flowers ripen first, should I harvest them before the main colas? I thought I had take a picture of them, but I guess I didn't, so I will have to wait until tomorrow to get a pic showing the change.
