Test: Guava Gelato × (Z × ZiZi) F2

Pictures taken March 24th, 2024.

Temperature: 75°F
Relative Humidity: 74%
VPD: 0.43 (no clue where the humidity spike came from)

Light cycle: 18 hours on / 6 hours off
Light intensity: 50%
Distance from canopy: 16"

Plant height: 18"
Pot size: 2 gallon
Medium temperature: 72°F

I realized I have weeks of photos on this grow and updated all my diaries on it, except this one. 😅

I finally addressed most of the LST that needed to be done. I need to do a little more training, but not too much.

I haven't done a pre-flip defoliation, yet. That's going to happen this weekend, once everything is finished being tied down and trained.

I included a short video of the canopy right after I trained most of it.

Turns out, the pots I've been using are one gallon, not two gallons.

Last day of consecutive spraying. I'm going to clean the plants with just water tomorrow, then drop a sulfur fogger in my room on Friday.

The flip will happen on Saturday.

Each plant is now fully bent and trained. If they stretch like the Mango Lassi I have in flower, this whole 2.5'×6'×5.5' closet will be full of nugs in a couple months.

The plants that are still kicking, and the photo order of the plants, is as follows:
#2
#3
#5
#6
#7
#8
#10
#11
#13
#14
#15

Each individual plant has two pictures of it, a front shot and a top shot.

Some of the plants were topped after I took photos, to help even out the canopy a little bit more.

I stuck all the low branches, that wouldn't make it up to the canopy, into my cloner. They'll end up being a second run after this one. I got at least one cut from each plant, except for one. I believe it was #14 or #15. I can't remember at the moment. I didn't get more than three cuts from any plant, so that tells me that lateral branch growth was pretty good.
Usually, I have to take 10 or so branches off of a plant when doing a final lollipop. I got my Chimera #3 mom ready to flip yesterday, as well. It's as old as these guava plants and I took 14 lower branches off that thing. I could've taken a few more.

Shit, I forgot to top feed them with some Craft Blend last night.

I looked at the canopy today and instantly knew, it's time to flip. I didn't end up flipping on Saturday, due to the canopy still looking a little thin. I must have defoliated a little more than needed. No worries, just set me back a few days, is all.

Top fed with BuildASoil Craft Blend and watered with some homemade CalMag. I'm going to start giving the plants different teas, in order to maintain nutrient uptake until the craft Blend becomes soluble. I'll post the recipes, mainly so I remember which ones I used and when.
I'm going to use juices that are mainly for veg throughout the first few weeks, to help with their stretch. Then, week 4 or so, I'm going to focus more on fermented fruit juices and add a little more octane with BuildASoil's BuildABloom weeks 5+.

So, this might seem like a weird observation because most people would just take the win, but .... I'm pretty sure most, if not all, of these plants are female. All of the plants seem to have elongated bracts. I'll know for sure in a week or so.

The males finally showed up to the party. If I were to keep one, it would be #8, personally.

Something weird has been going on with the fresh growth of some of the plants, as you can tell, for the past couple weeks. I thought it might be too much light, making the leaves mutate. So, I dialed the lights back about 10%.
I also thought it might be pH, so I checked runoff. It hit between 6.6-7.1. that wasn't the problem.
I checked the bottoms of pots and didn't see any root tips popping out. I dug into each pot to see if I could see or smell any signs of root rot. There were no signs of it.
There are no pests that chomp on leaves. I made sure to check every plant with a 30×-60× jeweler's loupe.

I'm at a loss, unfortunately. I've never dealt with this before. But, I'm determined to figure it out.

Since this is a test run, I've decided to see how these plants deal with being monster-cropped. Stress tests for the win!

They are dealing with 40°F nights and 70°F days quite well. I'm surprised the temperature swings haven't been messing with them throughout the week.

No signs of powdery mildew so far, but that takes a few weeks to dig in and show up.

5/29/2024:

These girls have been outside since the first week of May.
Removed a lot of the buds, yesterday. The plants finally started shooting ones and showing signs of re-veg.

Holes are being prepped and should be done by the weekend.

No signs of nanners, so far.

Average day temperature: 73°F
Average night temperature: 58°F

#3 smells like lemon-lime soda. Sprite is what instantly popped into my head.

#7 has a sweet but sour funk to it. It has the best smell, in my opinion.

#10 smells like Hawaiian punch.

#13 still has a piney perfume to it, but with a hint of sweetness, now.
