Mother are you there
So I am very novice at growing and computers, these where in order from when I got her an so on but are not on here.
But here is her story. Mother are you there.
Knock at the door and a friend hands this plant over. You want a plant he says, it's called pink Lady.
I graciously accept this beautiful plant and I proceed to hack her up! Okay not hack but take clones, I topped her. Little did I know she was in bloom. Like a month +. :O
Plant the clones and kept her under a cfl at 18/6 for over a month before I got a cheap grow light and still at 18/6.
I'll be back to fill in more.Okay I'm back.
Before I con't (let me get a rye and a nice little bowl) I will talk about those seemingly random pics and that this isn't going to be your typical journal. I guess I wouldn't have to say the last pic is the light I got. I was in a hurry because I realized she was wanting to flower and even though the tent hadn't arrived yet I at least had better lighting. The two before it are the full plant I received and the one under the new light was her topped and really showing flower even though she was under 18/6 light. This actually had me wondering if she was an auto flower. I had no clue of anything so I was reaching for answer to why she was still pushing flower under 18/6. Stubborn but I am sure it messed her up inside somewhat.
Now that all green small flower, that was sometime around after I topped her and before the grow light. The rest well those are in the tent under 12/12 and doing what she's wanted to do since she arrived!
Now let me tell you another I have no idea what I am doing moments.
I have aquariums, I use their water for other plants and I had NO idea about pH for plants and nutrients. SO I water her, actually I seen she was either getting a nut burn or it was deficiency. Yes I read about that by this point lol so I really flushed her soil with aquarium water. Guess what, my aquarium water is 7.8pH! She took it like a champ and showed no negative affect from it.
So to give you a clear time line, May 27th I got her, she was about a month and a half old clone and JUST into flower when I did what I did. Juen 26th I got the light and she was under a cfl till then. June 30th my tent arrived. I think I even waited a few days before popping her in. Temp rH and when I did I think I was still thinking she would easily revert to veg and kept her on 18/6. But them I said F* it and put her to 12/12. Lets say July 3rd because I didn't think to keep tract. See newbie lol
Okay so now we have her in the tent and she responds like a women who's been in a car to long an has to pee but can't because you are driving to the rest area lol. All this time she wanted to stretch and was trying as well as make flowers. She goes off. So let me finish this part of the story here and I can show you some pics (in order I hope) of how she's come along up to now.
Hope you are still with me.
You might have been wondering why I titled this Mother where are you. It's because she's the mother to my clones and I have no idea where she is in her stage of growth other then flower lol
Bare with me folks, I've never done anything like this and I mean post thing to a forum as well as grow Cannabis.
So for that last 3-4 wks she's been in the tent under 12/12 all signs are good. The above pic was only about a wk into being in the tent and 12/12
Looking at her everyday I hardly noticed her branches stretching outwards. July 8th GH nutes arrived (thanks to this site and Docs how to mix video, thanks Doc you are awesome) and I had to guess at what stage on the nute chart I should put her on. I choose wk 4 bloom (about 7-7 on his chart). After a chatroom talk with Doc and showing him a photo has said he thinks mid bloom so I was close. So the feed I gave to the feed he suggested was really were I was at for the next feed anyways and because I didn't start from the beginning I didn't think it would change much and I don't think it did.
I have this scope or digital magnifier for sharpening my straight razors (yes I use them and you should to or Safety razors, save$$) and took a look at my trichomes, by this time I have read a lot of material and I have to same I feel lucky she's still here. This isn't from the calyx but wow eh!? An oddity is that I didn't find many clear Trichomes I was worried everything messed up her clock but Doc, also baffled said give her time and I did.
Her on July 22
So on that note we are kinda up to date. She has just started to turn some of her pistils and it's me trying to choose when to flush her and when I want to chill the room to see if that will push out some more rosin. She hasn't had a powerful smell but I will put that on her time of confusion and maybe the cold will promote that too.
So this is her as of today. I hope they both come up. If not I'll go again lol
Thanks for your interest in my adventure of growing this Pink Lady and doing near everything ass backwards.
To a look at Mother tonight before work, took a pic but should have turned off the grow light
With the green glasses a lot or red pistils in a short time, I'd say a week from seeing some change to now close to if not over %50 but then again my eyes could be fooling me ;P
Tomorrow after work I will put the scope to her and post some trichomes for you all to see as well as some real light bud pics.
Oh and I also put a gallon jug of ice in front of the fan (at lights out) to see if that promotes pushing resin as some places say. The new light has also upped the temp a bit but still safe, rH though is on the verge peaking at %59 but droping as low as %48. Good airflow is my blessing I think.
Hope to see you in the morning
Good Morning, or evening or whatever the time of day it is for you.
Good Morning from Mother
Jug of ice didn't last lol Should have known.
So just a little photo shoot today and some close up Trichomes that are sexy simply because they are, not my photo skillz 😀
I wish my computer would take the video's off my phone so you wouldn't have to look at so many close ups ;P but I know you want too.
Hope your having a great day!
and keep that green thumb in the dirt, chow4meow
So I have some better lighting, to look at those leaves. They look worse in previous entry
I am finding it hard to take scope pics with a hanging Bud one hand on scope one on trigger to take the pic, first world problems I tellz yah.
So close to harvest but no clear sign of Trichomes turning as of yet.
Looks like I may have seeds in the making 🙁
No Bananas to be seen. Not sure if I should harvest asap so no more show up.... Now the lights are out and I have to wait till tomorrow to maybe pluck this area an see if it is a seed of not. I feel that it is :'(
Strain, no idea. Other than a name PinkLady. I keep getting hung up on the month of 18/6 and I have no clue what growing buds look like
Hello There Growmie! Hope your dayz are great and your ladies ferociously growing!
Well Mother is really throwing me for a loop. For a bit I thought she was producing seed, with no sign of banana's. But Dr Coco has assured me with the image I put up in Chat (not the above blurple pic) that I am safe 😀 YAY How was I to know? I though she was done swelling after all! Not to mention everything about how she got to where she is.
So the last few waters I figure flush, I know I was at around wk6 from flip but like I said, (I thought) she stopped her swell and her crazy life might mean flip date is unreliable. But then again it might not...
I have been giving her water from the tap, about pH of 7.6 the last wk (someone mentioned it is a good idea because the high pH will block nut uptake and help Mother cannibalize herself) and now it seems as though she is going through another swell or something. She is pushing out new hairs all over. Some areas seem to be fox tailing but it's all over her. So I assume it's stress related like the high pH water. But now I'm not sure if I should give her nutes again because she is or I thought she was close to harvest or keep up the with just water but pH to 6.3. Okay almost Wk8 and I know that might seem early to flush and would mean about 2-4 wks to go... if her month in stasis only attributes to a wk or 2. IF at all. argh what a Messed up first grow lol maybe I will give her a light nut mix. You think a low pH like 5.5 would be best to maybe compensate if the soil has a high pH?
I'll get some pic up tomorrow, I was meant to update little creeper on wednesday. Need to form these good habits 😉
Anyways, if you read this before pic, please help and if I get pic up before you've read this maybe you'll have a better idea then me. Because I really have none. The Cons of what I am calling a blind grow lol Here's to G-one the clone I am working with now and knowing what has been put into the soil. As well as growing naturally opposed to Mother with her chopped top and side branches wanting to be colas! lol
OH And I have read that some Sativa/haze which mother, is can go up to 14-16wk before ripe AND some won't even show amber trichomes! Doesn't that just make Mother all the more interesting and confusing (to me) lmao
Okay so that's my update. Learning lots from Mother and Flower development as well as water and nutrients.
Have a great what every time it is Growmies. Keep your tent and your Jars full
So I wrote a bit just before so I won't add anything but a photo dump. You tell me what you think. I don't have a white light but my flash unless I take her out... I should have done that... Bah I'm high
Take a look, they seem to be going through a second swell in a un-uniform manner.
