Well more exciting news here went to my local grow shop to get all the stuff I need for the clones I am getting. Also got me my much needed digital ph reader. Turns out after the ferts go In I am right at 6.0 so I'm sure my ph was a little off before because I was ph before ferts. Also got me a little fan to add to the closet.

EVEN BIGGER NEWS!! (atleast I am excited 😊) the grow shop is now carrying seeds. So I could not resist. I got a feminized GSC for $15 that I plan to veg and make a mother out of. Also got a regular Sugar Coat(The Truth x Glazed Doughnut) I plan on just growing that out and praying for a female lol. I have them in water and excited to have so decent genetics.

Back with another nightly update lol. Just alot of things happening and getting excited.
So if you remember in the beginning of my journal I got my 3 big bag seeds plants from a outdoor grower friend. He didn't need them since he bought a 5 pack of feminized jack Herrera seeds and kept one of the bag seeds to have his legal limit of 6. Of course the one bag seed showed its balls last week. So as a thank you for getting me a head start on my grow and for the clones he is gonna be giving me I got him something.

So I bought a 3 pack of sour stomper autos ( the pack actually had 4 and got 2 freebies as well). Started 2 seeds and will give him the best looking one so he can get back to his 6 plants.

Also put all my seeds in plugs and put it in the humidity dome.

Do I keep the vents closed or do they need some fresh air?

Here are the genetics of the other two seeds.

Nice thread to read thru... yeah, FIM works great and I've used it for years... do this at week 3 or 4 of flowering and what happens it is slows upward growth and causes the plant to concentrate on lower shoots.
by the time the upper part of the plant heals, the shoots have caught up to the top and you now have an even canopy..

Supercropping is the act of pinching stems, done properly it will kind of pop when you squeeze it.. if getting a lot of resistance, rotate your fingers 180 degrees and do it again.. this causes all the growth agove the pinch to go nutso in a good way.. some supercrop early in veg.. good thing to read up on.. I followed Soma's methods when I learned it....

things look great... luck

Thanks for the info, I was under the assumption that any hst should be done in veg to prevent stressing your plants out. I will have to try it in flower next round and see the difference.

I ended up doing a lot of HST in my current flower tent. I let them get to big prior to putting them in. I did some major bending to keep my flowers from hitting the lights some being well into flower when doing it. The flowers continued to stack and are now bulking up even thru the major bends some have. I too think this HST should be done in veg mode but you gotta do what you gotta do and sometimes it works out ok for you…

This one was bent a few weeks ago almost hitting the light.. didn't tie her down at a 90 degree angle as I should have.. now she's healed and formed her knot at the bend and has again reached upwards.. my bad for being lazy. LST is mostly done in veg and done right. boy oh boy. keep at it man

I don't think lst would stress them to much. As long as you don't bend it too much.

They are looking great BTW
Thank you but I’ve got a few bent like this. Shoulda woulda coulda mistake but the plant managed to take a licking and keep on ticking. It really surprised me…

Impressive but not overly surprising I have a few tomato plants out side that look like that but still living and growing me some tomatoes. If only I could get to them before the deer. Lol

Bag seed for your first grow makes sense to me. No sense in murdering high dollar seeds if you don't need to. Looks like you've done 'em proud so far.

Another quick update. So all the seeds sprouted besides the feminized GSC. Put the GSC in wet paper towel to see if it will pop. Also started germing the 2 free seeds I got from the grow store. Also got my 9 Jack Herrera clones hopefully a few survive, neither me or my buddy have cloned before.

It's happened again #5 has hermied on me.
20220718_065240.jpg


More bad news as well, I'm assuming I didn't get #1 out quick enough when it hermied. #2 and #6 now have seeds forming in a few places( will post pic tonight). Hopefully won't make them too seedy. Tonight I plan to give the entire closet a good wipe down to remove any remaining pollen.
