That I do. One is stretching more than the others, which I'm gonna guess means a nice big fat main cola if I keep it up.

 

My hope is I get the phenos that pack on the potency. It's advertised at 19% THC, but... we'll see about that. Tell you what though, Sawyer...

 

I'm losing myself to how awesome doing this is. Constant source of peace and happiness. Hope you find the same enjoyment I'm getting out of it.

So I've got little green bulb/leaf stuff forming around the pistils... is that the start of budding or am I just looking too far into things?

The pistils extend out of the flower which is what your seeing.

So each of those little bubbles that the pistil's extend out of is a potential flower? Well I'll be damned...

It's the day for them to get their pictures taken again, so I'll be doing that shortly. A few extra, so people can tell me if I've got budsites forming and the like. Which reminds me... I need to get some Bio Bloom before I get much farther.

Wingo, girlys got their pictures taken. :)

Wish my camera was better to get better detail, but it'll have to do.

 

They are scheduled for water and food tomorrow.

So I kind of accidentially removed one of the fan leaves, stem and all from the main trunk. And yes, by accident. I was gently bending it to try to train it under some of the bud sites popping up to get them more light and it broke at the base and came off almost completely anyway, so... I just rolled with it. I hope I didn't whack it out too much by doing that, but hopefully it's okay.

 

Feeding on the 'marrow. I'm going to add a teaspoon or two of the BioBizz BioBloom to their feeding schedule. So far it's been a teaspoon (Wk1Feed) and a teaspoon and a quarter (wk2)  of BioGrown in a gallon of water between the three of them. As they get bigger, I'm assuming that they're going to be consuming more water and more food, but I wanted to start light cuz well... autos.

 

And holy powerful bud batman... bud sites everywhere on Ms. Cristal.

How much sand on top and bottom? I don't want to over do it.

 

And is there any other thing I can do. I don't know how bad fungus gnats are to the plant.

 

Those guys pop up quick. I saw one two days ago, and too many last night.


Oh, and what kind of sand?

Fungas gnat chew on the roots a bit and are a general pain in the butt. The finest sand you can get, likely the white sand, about a 1/4 to 1/2 inch thick on the top. This stops the gnats from crawling in and out of the grow medium, A little diatomaceous earth will help too.

So having read a bunch of things, I've got a bowl of beer, a couple bowls of dish soap water, I'm letting the plants dry out because apparently they like a moist enviroment.

 

Also read that a good load of perlite on the top would work as well as sand for a barrier to the soil. Which I have a big bag of that. Finding sand in the middle of winter might not be very easy.

Home Depot and Lowes both will have sand, the best is "play sand" like for a kids sandbox. Perlite might work though, make it about 3/4 inch thick.

The real question is, as I read, they don't like it dry... should I still water and feed, because they're a little over due for feeding/watering.

So, in the interest of a happy and healthy plant and not changing their routine much, they got fed/watered. They were looking all droopy because I try not to soak them. I gave them a pretty good size feeding to bump them up because they're looking strong despite the pests. 2 teaspoons in the gallon this time instead of 1 1/4. I think they should be fine.

 

Tent got a very good cleaning. Tops got perlited because that's what I had on hand so I dind't have to go spend anymore at the moment.

 

Ballin on a budget sucks. But, that's usually how it works in the start.

So turns out the gnats probably weren't my doing, and that it was probably already in the Roots Organic soil... so yeah, go figure...

 

My question is, will the plants make it through to harvest okay if the place is crawling with them?

Well, I'd put the dirt outside, but it's already in pots and the plants are in it... sooo....

 

Hydrogen peroxide and sticky traps it is!

I was reading that the peroxide is for the larvae more than the adults. It kills the little bastards in the soil which is what's making me mad! THEY'RE EATING MY ROOTS! GAWARHAGEY!
 

And now I've had a nightmare that they died! They're alive! Pictures in a little bit. I'm hoping I didn't nutrient burn them. There's a few spots that are yellowing. One's probably my fault with the vaccum cleaner. I was sucking up bugs out of the lighting rig and caught a leaf with the wand. I'm trying to kill these fuckers, but there are a lot of them. Pictures of how bad will be included.
