Update Flower Day 56

At the eight week mark and the ladies are winding down. I found a pencil eraser size spot of bud rot on one of the BBxWW colas so she is going to be harvested today. I inspected the rest of the ladies and they look good for now. All are running about 90% cloudy trichs with maybe two or three percent amber. I'm hoping the other ladies will make it to the nine week mark just to see what happens. These are all eight to ten week strains but I've always harvested at the seven to eight week mark - usually do to some bullshit circumstance like bud rot. Fingers crossed this time.

Last pic of all the ladies standing this morning. Will post a few pics of the BBxWW once chopped:



Peace,
starke

BBxWW Harvest

The misses and I finished rough trimming the BBxWW a few minutes ago. This first plant tells me I'm going to be a fan of the defol technique I used this time (Big thanks to member Ichabod Crane). I have never had larger or denser buds in any previous grow.

I'm guessing around six zips when dry enough to jar but that's just a wild ass guess since I've never had buds this size to deal with. Most importantly there was virtually no larf or popcorn. The total trim from this plant is about one half, maybe even a third, the amount we usually have. That is actually a two edge sword though. I'll miss all that trim for making oil and gummies.



Peace,
starke

Final Flower Update

The remaining three ladies were harvested yesterday and the BBxWW went into jars. No pics now but I will get some bud pics once everything is in jars and I can get some weights. The remaining three ladies trimmed up like the BBxWW with virtually no larf so I am a happy camper.

Cleaned the room and am about to put four more ladies in. Pics when that's done too.

Peace,
starke

Here We Go Again

I put four more ladies under the screen on Saturday. To answer olday's question in the last post, this round will consist of a Liberty Haze in the front position followed by Super Lemon Haze, a Tripleberry #14 pheno from member browntrout's genetics and a Hawaiian Snow at the rear.

How they looked on Saturday:



And how they look this morning:



The only change made for this run is I have covered the outside of each bucket with panda film to try and prevent algae. When I pulled the root balls from the last grow the outside of each root ball was covered in green algae. I don't know the science but I'm betting the algae relationship with the roots is more competitive than symbiotic. Too much light penetration, even through the dark blue plastic.



On another note, the root balls were also the densest I've ever had. Given that nothing else much had changed from previous grows, I'm attributing this to the more even watering from combining the six inch and nine inch drip rings in each bucket. This modification will stay for future grows.

I'm planning on vegging until Friday just to give them time to adjust to the new room and lighting. Flower starts Saturday.

Peace,
starke

Love all the sativa leaning girls for the run, looking forward to the smoke reports as well!

Forgot to ask - what are the 3 blue pad things in there, was that just a part of the space or is that something for the hydro setup?

Hey Starke, those BBxWW buds are huge! Interesting defoliation technique, thanks for sharing
