SAFC Ants (Misfits): Super skunk interruption
Drop new seeds yesterday, the three I planted didn’t come up. I did the paper towel method, maybe too wet, but looking back even this batch I should’ve scratched them up with a bit of sand paper. Not sure if it’s the seeds or me, I normally have a really good germination rate.
Ok so I had great success this time around all three came up. I’ll clean my tent really well outside and in and try and get ride of anything that may care pm. I’ll wash my pots well, I think i can still try and recycle some of the soil and amend it with nutes, and worm castings. I got my fish shit and power si in the mail and excited to try the power si as I’ve heard good thinks.
Really be lacking on this journal, but honestly not mich is happening. I gage them a couple days outside in the sun and brought them in at night then left them over night before planting them in their forever home. I mixed in a good amount of gia green grow right before transplanting and they got a good watering with fish shit a couple days ago. The winds been pretty strong and beating on them pretty good but there’s not much I can really do other the stake them up. I can see some hairs starting to creep out, not to experienced with autos but think I’m just starting the flower-ery stage of the grow. There been no real stretch yet and I top the fist node or two of each now. Took the pic a couple of days ago, didn’t realize I’ll have to watch I don’t start getting to much in the background including license plates lol.
So they’re starting to take off now, I guess this is the stretch. Only added power si and fish shit. I’ll add a good does of gia green soon, been really looking at people feed schedule for gia snd it seems that most people are adding every three weeks at the recommended dose. Rain pretty well every other day so far so that’s convenient lol.
little side note started listening to breeders syndicate, really interesting to listen too. There been in the few episodes I’ve listened to really in depth looks at were some cultivats have come from and how they made it to the Netherlands. But it’s old timers talking about what they had to breed with and connections to neville and odd things like that, really enjoying it so far. Super skunk been mentioned a few times now and I guess I didn’t really think it was that old of a cultivar.
Chugging along nicely outside! Haven’t done much honestly, will add nutes later this week. I’ve been meaning to start and imo collection hopefully i can even get that done this week.
as far as everything goes looks like I’m starting to flower maybe a week or two in already. I’m pretty bad at telling time lines for autos and I would think most follow different patterns based on flower time and maybe veg times vary. Anyways will keep chugging along.
Just added power si and fish shit this morning as they needed to be watered also added half strength cal. This evening I’ll be adding gia bloom as for instructions say. Suppose to rain next couple days so figure I should get it in before.
At this point they really seem to be different phenos. One is sweet, one is sour and the third is pure skunk butt. I’m really enjoy smelling the skunk butt lol. Im hoping they all finish some what similar in flavours, I’d rather not have to try and keep them in separate jars. I‘m just weird like that, same cultivar different out comes, different jars lol.
Been a few days and there looking great. I feel the stretch has ended and there starting to get some buds for sure. Last night I watered with Power si and fish shit nothing to fancy, and I’ll be adding more bloom by the end of the week.
And I managed an IMO collection, I don’t think it turned out amazing but better then the first one I tried. The picture is after I scoped out the box. After it got mixed with brown sugar and is now in an IMO2. Not sure where to go from here but I think I’ll do a tea first to try and inoculate soil. Just not sure if I should try to add it to my soil bin or wait till I fill the pots.
Well I haven’t done much just watered. I’ll be keeping up on the dr zymes to stop any pests, doing great so far. Will add more bloom in a few weeks and I’ll be giving a very large watering this evening as I’ll be away for a few days.
As for the bud themselves, definitely coming along. The one plant seems to have really long foxtail buds but It all smells so good. There is definitely a bit of skunk coming back and it’s staying pretty sweet smelling.
Well got a heavy dose of gia green bloom this last week and I’m just waiting for it to finish up at this point. I keep telling myself two more weeks! But pretty happy overall there a few bit marks on leaves looking like mites. I’ll keep spraying my dr zymes, feel like there’s not all that much else I can do with it being outdoors.
Getting close now, really started to fade and add some weight. Just been watering when needed and spraying for a minor spider mite issue. Grabbed a pump sprayer so this should help me really Get the whole plant cover vs my little squeeze bottle that needed to be vertical to work properly.
Pics of all three of them and one close up of The super fox tail pheno. But the balcony stinks good.
