The girls have graduated primary school

Thursday was busy so this post is a couple days late. My oldest son has a friend retiring from the local university and moving out of state. Anyway, he was a bee keeper that used to have a few hives and was left with just one huge hive he needed someone to take. He gave use all kinds of equipment, more hive bodies with frames, extraction equipment, etc. Have to say that wanting to keep insects alive is a new experience for me at my age. 

To the girls. They were definitely ready for training on Thursday. Got my table set up with my 'lazy Susan' on it and went to work.

Both girls were ready to have three of their four nodes pulled out/down.

My goal is to have four good branchings (above where the first node was cut off), then pull their tops over. Last cycle I'd left the tops alone until realizing the girls were putting too much effort into developing their tops. At that point the tops were super cropped. Today took their tops over instead of waiting. Makes it much easier to plan where in the canopy the top should go instead of trying find room in the canopy later.

By next Thursday, should be punching holes in the pot.

They're looking sad after today's training session.

This past week has been rough for the girls. Let me get to some pics and kind of walk through this past week.

The sativa really has fought me to keep her top down, so last Saturday did some more training. 

Cannabis Grow 20220129 092423

Cannabis Grow 20220129 092420

Then on Sunday a little more. 

Cannabis Grow 20220130 092926

Cannabis Grow 20220130 092931

Then kept an eye on them each day to see their progress. 

Monday

Tuesday

Cannabis Grow 20220201 094509

Skip pics on Wednesday but on to today. Forgot to take before pics of the sativa but did do so with the indica. Both girls had sprung back and needed some defoliation. 

Cannabis Grow 20220203 092049
Cannabis Grow 20220203 092042

Took some lower nodes closer to the center of the plant off and removed some of the really big fan leaves blocking the growth tips. Also wound up super cropping the tops on both girls. Got tired of fighting with them. They really looked sad when done.

You can see where the indica stalk snapped and had to use grafting tape.

Another week of rigorous training.

This week was about like last week. 

(This time remembered the before and after photos of both girls.) 

First the sativa. She came back pretty good from last Thursday's training. 

Cannabis Grow 20220210 093858

Now she looks like a construction sight with all her hoops holding her in place. 

Cannabis Grow 20220210 102542

The indica did about the same over the week. She also bounced back. 

Cannabis Grow 20220210 093907

Her branches still aren't as long as desired but getting there. 

Cannabis Grow 20220210 101121

Though probably not visible from the photos, the sativa is giving indications she's getting ready to stretch. Time for the next phase of training. For the girls this be like stepping off into Calc III after beating your head against the wall in Calc II. Easy peasy. From here on out they'll just have branching tied to keep canopy open and lose those pesky light blocking fan leaves. 

Probably won't post next week. Have dental appointments two days and a beekeepers conference over next weekend. Post in a couple of weeks.

The sativa is definitely in her stretch.

Got a little time before have to leave. 

Sativa definitely beginning her stretch.

Cannabis Grow 20220216 115451

Pretty much from here on out she'll just get her shading fan leaves cut off (which is most of them as time goes on).

Cannabis Grow 20220216 125058

The indica has a little more time, which is good. Her branches aren't as far out to the side as I'd like. Hopefully by next Thursday she'll be stretching also. 

Cannabis Grow 20220216 115500

And after. 

Cannabis Grow 20220216 125106

Have a humidifier on the way. The relatively humidity is super low this winter and the tent it's having trouble keeping the humidity above 50%.

Another good week

The sativa has definitely begun to stretch. 

Cannabis Grow 20220224 111311

And after today's training. 

Cannabis Grow 20220224 115604

The indica needed some serious defoliation. 

Cannabis Grow 20220224 111318

She has begun to show indications of pistils. She looked a lot better after a good haircut.

Cannabis Grow 20220224 125305

Switched over to flower nutes today.

Been out of it for a couple of weeks.

Hello and glad to be back. Covid is a real bitch! Can't remember last post so I'm going to jump back into it. 

Both girls did well during training. I'm afraid missed the timing on my sativa this time around. Her flowers will get fatter over the next few weeks but her stretch was stunted. There hasn't been any new vegetative growth in the last week. Matter of fact, she'll not have anymore defoliation either.

Cannabis Grow 20220311 122443

The indica on the other hand its doing great with defoliation. Timing is good with her. This is the second defoliation like this in as many weeks. As you can see she's really hitting her stride with the stretch. 

Cannabis Grow 20220311 122424
Cannabis Grow 20220311 122418

And, after the defoliation. Retied a couple of the limbs for more light but mostly just took off fans leaves.

This week about the same.  

Sativa is done except for her flowers to get fatter. Buds are definitely getting dense.

Cannabis Grow 20220318 120127

I'll get the tripod and micro lens out next week to see how the tricomes are doing. 

The indica it's still putting out new growth. Here she is before her hair cut. 

Cannabis Grow 20220318 111557

And the after pics. 

Cannabis Grow 20220318 115400

Cannabis Grow 20220318 120116

From here on out it's pretty much waiting for the girls to ripen up.

Last post went a little crazy...doh no?

Both girls doing good. Sativa is definitely ripening up. Some of her remaining leaves are beginning to turn. She might give me three oz's total but that'll be pushing it. 

Cannabis Grow 20220324 104738

Did get the micro lens and tripod to take tricome pics. The sativa is about 50/50 between cloudy. Did see a few ambers.

Cannabis Grow 20220324 104059

The indica has stopped stretching. She didn't have any more defoliation this week. Want her to focus on fattening up so I'm not going to add any stress right now. She's got flowers all over her and I'm excited. 

Cannabis Grow 20220324 104821

Probably going to run mid-bloom nutes for a couple of weeks more. From her on out, the nutes will default to the needs of the indica. Of course that means a lot of hand watering to flush the sativa when the time comes. Oh darn.

The sativa is done.

Finally getting to the end. The sativa (Amnesia Haze) is done.

Cannabis Grow 20220404 130802

Started her flush yesterday but probably won't chop her till Friday.

The indica on the other hand is still chugging along. Gave her a bit of defoliation today to open her buds to the light. 

Before

Cannabis Grow 20220404 131825

After.

Cannabis Grow 20220405 091233

Also dropped the sativa light to provide some additional light to the densest part of the indica's canopy.

Chopped the sativa Friday morning.

So took down the sativa Friday morning. Got about what was expected, 2oz and 26g. Just stuffed her in the jars and hitting low 60% humidity for the jars. Might get some humidity packs this time around. Here's a shot just before chopping. 

Cannabis Grow 20220408 102046

And after. 

Cannabis Grow 20220408 102932

The indica is doing great. She's on par with my big producer last cycle which gave me around half a pound. Sorry don't have pictures of her at the moment. Concentrating on bee colony production and developing a sustainable apiery (where you don't have to spend hundreds of dollars for new bees every year). The indica is developing some nice fat colas. Dropped both lights to focus the highest concentration of light at about a 45° angle to the upper edge of the densest part of the canopy. Now that she's been trained and pretty much left alone since, she really seems to be concentrating on fattening up. In many respects this strain (Strawberry Pie auto flower) responded well to training but, she's definitely way behind on her harvest time. She's got at least a couple more weeks before beginning to look at her trichomes. Good and bad, she'll have time to get fatter but she's already in her fourth month.

Just waiting for the indica to finish.

Might be wishful thinking but, think some of her leaves are beginning turn. Here are some new photos of her beautiful top.

Cannabis Grow 20220414 084354

I'm not a real excitable person but for her, she gets two hands up and a yippee. She's fattening up nicely with about six inch (+) colas everywhere. I'm hoping that with 85% indica and reported upwards of 27% THC, she'll put me on my ass and make me forget my first name.

So checked the tricks today..."ding", its done

Decided there hasn't been any big turn in her sugar leaves over the last week so checked her tricks today. She's done. There's a good number of amber as well as cloudy. Will start flushing today and hopefully will catch up on the SAFC.

She's down
Total Days: 114
Flower Days: 60
Harvested: 04/24/2022

This will bring this grow to a close. Looks like she'll give about 5 oz once dried. Here's a few last pics.
