Day 36 of 11/13 …. She’s got a little bit of clawing going on but nothing too bad so I’ll let her keep going and will reduce the nitrogen in the next reservoir

Excellent development after 36 of flowering @OZZ_ just slight excess of nitrogen, make a flush to lower down a bit nitrogen storage in the plant, rest of variables👌 ;)

Well, unfortunately I have had a major mishap with the light timer. Must have accidentally pressed down some pins which caused additional 3.5 hours of light during night time. Did not notice it until severe revegging was apparant during week 7 after switch. Corrected it yesterday, but of course that put everything severely off track. I spare you the pictures, the tops don't even look like cannabis any more.

Sorry to hear about the timer @Common Sense hope they don't get totally spoiled!

Absolutely positive, uplifting and motivating smoke. I forgot how much I love this stuff and need to work another run of it into the schedule as I’m just about out of it.

So glad to hear that @Cactus Squatter 🥰 Happy to hear she has such beautiful sativa qualities, thanks!

Have a great start to the week, everyone! 🌞

She's a true African Beauty there @OZZ_

Thank you Maria!

Here she is at week 7. This is not turning out to be my best grow, her colas are getting very large and bulky. Very heavy. I was slow to get her staked and last weekend I opened the tent only to find her stem split right in half down the middle! It looks like the two largest branches were equally heavy on either side, and the pressure split the stem right down the middle.

I believe I caught it quickly though, and I used wire to put the stem back together and got her staked up. I haven’t noticed any drooping of any kind. In fact she took it like a champ and seems to just be shaking it right off. What a trooper! I was sure that was the end of her.

Also my nutrient mix took a little tweaking. I did get her the nitrogen reduced but it also apparently dropped calcium levels too low and she started showing some mild calcium deficiency. I was able to add back some calcium on my last res while still keeping nitrogen lowered, and PK higher at an overall EC of 1.8. She seems to be doing better on this and I’ll continue with this for another week and see how she responds. I expect nitrogen levels within the plant will continue to lower and the clawing should improve.

Since she is being grown in sutopots which is a bottom feeding system, I cannot flush her as all the salts accumulate in the top 1” or so of the medium. Flushing will only push all that buildup into the root zone which will not be good.

Instead I have to reduce nitrogen levels in the feed, and allow her to consume them slowly over time. In a week I suspect the clawing will improve

Glad she handled the breakage of the stem, filling out the colas like a champ :)
She is also enjoying the feeding a lot, with just slight excesses.

Yes she’s a hardy girl no doubt. I really thought I was going to have to start over after the stem break but she didn’t even blink 🤘🤘🤘

My Super Congo is going the long way after the accident with the timer. We are now at day 42 of the second 11/13 period (90 days since start of the first one). Everything in the picture is essentially new growth from the revegging period. Had to weave her into the scrog net, so it's mainly buds sticking up from the main branches which are sideways.

Can't really describe the aroma, may turn into something lemony, maybe spicy pepper. Not very pronounced, very much in contrast to the New Caledonia and the Zamaldelica behind her. This is in a small 60x60cm space.

My apologies for the lack of updates. I have been absolutely consumed with projects, work and family responsibilities….. so much so that today I tore down one tent and will just run my two big tents from here on out.

Anyway the super Congo clone turned out pretty decent even though I botched things left and right due to being so short on time.

Regardless this girl just kept on plugging along stacking larger and larger and foxtailing quite a bit.

Here are a few pics of a cola I took off of her. Yields were massive! Heavy dense fixtailing colas. This plant was no taller than 30” total and I got 6 main colas like this one plus a ton of bulky buds off the side shoots. Just a monster yield for such a small plant.

I ended up taking her at 12.5 weeks mainly due to my neglect, but I think she could have went 13-15 easily.

As a side note I popped my other pack of super Congo, I absolutely love this strain. So I have more six more seedlings to hunt through and compare! Also two GTPs have been popped 🤘🤘

That looks absolutely stunning, @OZZ_
🤩🤩
Mine got a little dried yesterday because of some unexplainable problem with the Blumats. I think I had some air in the system. Was easily fixed and besides some yellowing leafs no big problem

Thank you 🙏🙏🙏

Very excited to sample her since this time I let her go longer and mature a bit more. I think 13 weeks is probs my about right on this one

Cut down my Zamaldelica two days ago. The two remaining girls, New Caledonia and Super Congo have really switched on the afterburner during the hot day lately, trichomes ripening quickly and they are consuming very little water any more. Will harvest the New Caledonia tonight and the Super Congo probably on Sunday. I am a bit overwhelmed with chores at the moment, so that will be a quick cut and hanging of the whole plants. Not much time for pictures, but hope to get in a few.
