Thanks MallardDuck. I have some positive vibes for you today. Sorry for harshing the vibe here with bad news yesterday. Both of my plants look to have two or three ounces of some nice solid buds unaffected. They are smelling nice too, with the Auto Malawi leaning more earthy and herbal, and the Auto Zamaldelica seems to be more floral and slightly fruity. Both look like they are going to be easy trimming, even with a good bit of reflowerings poking out everywhere. I'm actually looking forward to trimming for once!

I cut one of the smallest, lowest buds from the Zam on Monday night. After trimming it, I had a small bowl of trim that put my head in a nice spot. Then I chopped some up with scissors and shared a bowl with the girlfriend. It has a calm, warm high that brings a bit of visual enhancement with it. Hard to tell flavor since it isn't even all the way dry yet, but I can tell it's gonna be nice. After a quick trim, the little bud just glistened with resin and looked great.

Looks like vitamin c is important to plant health, too. I found a paper about vitamin c in plant health and disease. It's an antioxidant for plants, and is involved in the synthesis of other antioxidants like vitamin e and zeaxanthin and other things like gibberellic acid and anthocyanins. It helps to regulate stress, cell cycle, cell division, and even flowering time in various plants. Pretty interesting.

Seems like it would be worth giving a shot just for lowering ph, and a super easy way to deal with chlorine and chloramine.

Yeah I had read a few articles on plant health and vitamin C, but I mainly use it for the purposes of lowering PH and removing chloromine. Anything else it does is just a bonus in my book! But I wonder if it wouldnt hurt to add a little to my rain barrel as well.

Glad to hear you managed to get a decent amount of good buds out of your harvest! I guess the drying and curing is the hardest part of the waiting!

Hi there quick update with a few pictures.

The stems are starting to give off some really nice smells. Mostly pungent citrus mango smells. The small one that is younger than the rest is the smelliest of the bunch funnily enough... it has a earthy resin smell.

I think some of the plants are showing some sativa characteristics which has me excited.

Those are looking really good MallardDuck! They are about at the point where they really start growing fast. These two autos from Ace just keep getting stronger smelling the whole grow. Thanks for always showing us the other beautiful flowers from your garden too. What kind is that last purple one?

Those are called Lupins. They are a perennial and always give me great pleasure when they flower. They have unique flowers that almost look carnivorous to me. Bees have to fly into this little flower pouch to get at the nectar and pollen. Its quite cute.

Just a quick pic of the pooch and the ladies hanging out. I will try to throw up some better pics of the plants in the next few days. I am pretty sure they are starting to initiate flower which is exciting but I am not completely sure.

Glad I found this thread. We must be neighbors MallardDuck, I'm also around 55N Alberta.

I wish I would have went with some fabric pots, with all this rain we have been getting lately some of mine have been waterlogged in plastic pots.

Looking forward to watching the rest of the show.

Best of luck and may all your Buds be Huge.

Peace GG

Thanks Dubi! It has been very exciting growing cannabis for the first time. I really enjoy how fast it can grow! Sometimes it feels like I can almost see them growing on a nice hot day.


Gorilla Ganja I hope your plants made it through the storm here a couple nights ago. I had decent sized hail here. I was able to run out to rescue my plants and they only ended up taking minor damage.


My three older plants have definitely started flowering now. I wasn't quite sure but the signs are there to see now. They are all between 60-70 cm right now.





#1 has has leaves that are in between #3 and #2 but seems to have a more open structure than #3. Stem is giving off smells of citrus and an underlying musky scent.





#2 has the thinnest leaves of the bunch. Also the thinnest and most pliable stems. Stems smells of freshly cut pitted fruits (Peaches, Nectarines ect) and no hint of typical cannabis smells. Delicious.

#3 has the broadest leaves and thick big girl stems. This one is giving off spicy/woody scents sort of mixed with the smell of a fresh tomato plant.



#4 The young one. It is by far already the smelliest. Really musky
citrus resin smells off this one. A lot like #1 but way stronger. This is the only one I know is an Auto Zam. The others I mixed up during germination.

Should I be removing large fan leaves? I seem to remember reading that was a good practice somewhere.

And as always a few other shots from my garden.
