Endgame R2 girls, round 3.

It's time for another round of these Endgame R2 clones.  These were cut a while back from the currently flowering mothers.  One of the Pheno #3's didn't fair so well, so the configuration of ladies is

5   5   4   

2   3   4

2   1   1   

Just one #3 this cycle.  

Foxfarm Happy Frog soil.  Perlite.  Worm castings.  Gaia Green All Purpose 4-4-4, a nice 1/2 cup per 5 gallot pot.  Now I just have to do some LST for a few weeks and we're In Like Flynn.

Transplanted today, defoliated as well.  Tonight, the light will taper down to 17 hours, followed by 16 the next day, etc, until 12/12.  I feel this gives them a few days to recover from the stress of repotting and to start getting a nice foothold before the stretch.  Additionally, we're going from 1 gallon to 5 gallons this time, so that will introduce a new learning curve.  

At time of flower, these girls will be just a few days shy of 6 months old, so they should show their full potential this run.

 

EXCELSIOR !

The light has been tapered down, with the girls receiving just 12 hours of light yesterday and 12 hours of dark last night, resulting in today, 12/22/23, being what I will call the first day of flip / the first day of the Cannabis Flowering Cycle.

Vs. previous grows, this is the first time I "topped" by girls 2 times, resulting in many more apical meristems - "tops" than previous grows, or so it looks.  This is also my first time in 5 gallon plastic pots.  When watering the other day, 4 gallons of water wasn't quite enough to saturate these girls.. it's going to be a challenge figuring how when to water.  I imagine I'll do what I've been doing - waiting until I see the plants physically wilt a bit.  This seems harmless if caught right away, and a bit harmful if you miss the sign and give them another day without water.  We'll just have to see.

Anyhow, here we go.  12/22/23, Day 1 of flower.

EXCELSIOR !!!

I try to take a weekly photo, but the holidays precluded things a bit.  The roots have finally reached the bottom of the pots.  I think when transplanting from 1 to 5 gallons next time, I should give a full week for them to get settled, THEN start the transition into flower.  I feel as though they took a bit longer than usual to fill out the pot.

 

Day 8 of flower 🙂

Day 21.  Defoliated just a bit, and really tried to do away with any small branches under the canopy - less larf, larger top buds?  We'll see.  Ferlitized with Gaia Green Power Bloom and worm castings to kick start the action.  8 days without watering, and the girls didn't even seem to need it today - except I wanted them to have that flowering nutrition.  They seem healthy and happy.  Just gotta leave'm alone I suppose 🙂

Excelsior !

Day 79 baby, harvest!

I almost let them go another week, as they really seem to have profitted from the extra 7 days..  but I see a few Amber, I think these girls have given more or less all they've got.  Nice harvest, proud of these girls.  They survived my abuse.  Pics attached.  

I was really hoping to yield a LB from the 3x3, doesn't look like I quite got there - just couldn't control the VPD for a few weeks, and I didn't realize I should water more often to account of it.  Oh well.  I still think I did well, satisfied with how it turned out.  

I'll post a final weight one all the girls are dry and manicured.  Thank you for reading my grow journal.  I hope it was of some use to you.

Excelsior !
