SAFC Snacks: cheese-sus christ bloom
I will be growing cheese sus christ superstar by mosca seeds, I do not think I have ever grown a cheeze variety and I think the name is kind of cute, Buffering coco and getting ready, gonna drop seeds into water wendesday.
seeds are soaking in wet toilet paper and are probably ready to plant.. started in a glass of water on 4/20 meant to start 4 but somehow dropped 5, oh well. They will start life in solo cups in this 2 ft by 2 ft tent;
They will be transplanted once into a 1 1/2 gallon hempy style bucket and finish in this 2 foot by 4 foot tent;
I usually do this as a perpetual grow starting 3 or 4 plants once a month or so, the plants in the tent are 79 and 32 days old. Now I'm off to see what the seeds look like.
All 4 are up and doing well, the last one to sprout had a little trouble with a stuck seed husk but recovered easily. I did have one seed that never sprouted a tail and never got planted.
6 days above ground and they look like this;
Thanks for looking in.
Another week gone by, 21 days above ground, 3 days since transplanting and all looks well;
I just finished harvesting the oldest plants and soon all 4 cheesus christ will be in the 2' by 4'and the 2' by 2' will be temporarly shut down.
I just won the SAFC first giveaway and it's a good one. A Mogabe 5 ton rosin press. Unfortunatly there was no instructions and I know nothing of the operation of a rosin press. I understand how they work, and can get it assembled, but if anyone has any words of wisdom for me, or can point me to a good online tutorial it would be very much appreciated.
Another week gone by, I have topped the two larger plants and tied some of the branches out and downward with yellow ties. The two smaller plants are not yet topped, a couple branches tied with orange ties. All 4 have had some light defoliation.
A full tent shot with their big sisters;
I got the Mogabe press assembled and fired up, my problem is I can adjust the temperature but only up to 255 F. I understand it needs to be more like 390 F or so. I get a flattened 2 dimensional bud but almost no rosin.
Another week gone by, 32 days above ground and looking good. I'm expecting impressive growth the next week or two. The two larger plants are about 11 inches tall, topped, and most all branches have been tied outward to encourage outward rather than upward growth. The two smaller ones are about 8 inches, will probably not be topped, and ony have a couple branches tied outward.
I am not doing well with the rosin press. I set the temp to 200 f to 220 f and I press for 1 to 3 minutes and get not enough to be worth the bother. The resulting wafer of bud is pretty stoney.
I guess both pictures in the above post were of the same 2 small plants. The 2 larger ones have put on 1 inch since yesterday here are piictures;
here is a shot of the two small ones in the 2x4 tent with the older generation;
Normally I would srart another 3 or 4 seeds about now but I think I might be running tight on space so I'll wait another week or two until some of the older generation gets harvested.
Another week, 40 days above ground. I got em all crammed in the 2x4 tent for now. The bigger ones are about 16 inches and begining to flower, the two smaller ones are 10 inches tall with no flowering yet.
I have a tent shot from above, a butt shot of one of the bigger girls, and I tried for a head on shot of each of the girls;
Still not doing well with the rosin press, I get such a small amount compared to the bud that goes in, it seems futile. I must be doing something wrong and will keep working on it but I dunno.
Thanks for looking and growers love to all.
Been a while since I last posted, busy time of year but I apologize for the time lapse.
The rosin press has been buried away till winter when I can experiment a little more.
Plants are doing well, the largest is about 24 inches talll the rest are 15 to 18 tall. One of the smaller ones is well into flower, the largest is slightly behind and the other two are a week or two further behind. Pics following are the two larger front and from above, two smaller front and above, and all 4 crammed into the 2x4 tent;
52 days above ground with quite a ways to go, so far doing very well. Still haven't started the next generation yet, gonna have to get going on that.
Growers love all, thanks for stopping by.
gave everyone a heavy defoliation and started the next generation, some white widow autos and green poison auto. 5 out of 5 sprouted tails, 1 day later waiting for green above ground.
Another week gone and moving somewhat along. Buds are not packing it on yet but quite frosty and seem pretty dense. the plant on the left is closest to harvest but I have not yet started any flush.
The five I started last week all sprouted but one died off shortly.
Happy fourth everyone!
Cheesus crist, another week has gone by and it's time for another update;
Cheesus crist I could not upload any photos so you will just have to settle for a written version.
All are doing quite well. One is maturing faster than the rest and is on final flush probably cut next week or weekend, next is one that is larger than the rest probably a couple weeks or so out, and the two smallest are more my normal size for autos and they need a little more time to mature. All 4 are filling out and frosting up just like we like.They are all 82 days above ground and that will put some over 100 days at harvest, about normal for me.
I apologize for the lack of photos, I was especially disapointed as I took each plant out of the tent for more detailed photos. Oh well maybe I'll have better luck next time. Thanks for checking and happy growing,
