Usually only a week or two before I flip.
As a result I tend to have less chunky buds I think... yours are twice as fat as mine get unless I let her veg longer.... maybe mines just skinnier...
Thanks for looking in on my last grow.
I have a new grow of the 3rd style of Golden Tiger from the R&D section plus Panama x Honduras AGAIN!
I cant get enough of it and I am worried my supply will run out before i get some more ha ha.
They haven't started flowering yet but once they do I will start a diary I am so excited to grow these 2 the new GT and P x H are all growing well and should show sex soon fingers crossed.
I have a very small grow cabinet 1200 x 1200 x 1000mm
Thats about 3 feet of available height! So I am forced to grow them on 12/12 from day one no vedging at all.
The leggy ones I just bend to make them fit. The only thing I do is feed sparingly until they start flowering to reduce their height.
Once the buds start forming I feed them higher levels slowly to encourage the flowers.
Then taper off feeding the last 4 weeks until they are on water only.
The 2 weeks before harvest they dont get any water at all to dry out the roots.
Everything I do I learn't here from master growers on IC in particular Terpene he is worth reading.
To pump up the flowers just feed them when they start developing its what they are after you can feel its what they want.
If you ferment (cob) your buds and chew small amounts instead of smoking them even the smallest harvest will last you years.
i have cobs that are 4 years old from harvests that were only 2 or 3 ounces its more than enough to last a year.
If you have 4 or 5 plants and make a couple of cobs from each that would last me 2 or 3 years ha ha. I have to give some away each year or I wouldn't have to grow again for years!
My next grow I have 4 different strains 2 from Ace and 1 from a good friend and one of my own making.
The cobs from this lot will see me right for the next 5 years if I dont give some away.
