Good morning, Growmies!
Just a quick update on the girls! The zkittlez is doing amazing, and I’m going to be flipping her tonight when she wakes up. Should put her finishing about 2 weeks after Orion comes out of the dry tent.
The Orion has been struggling a little, and I didn’t have a lot of time to figure out what the culprit was. So I had a little time last night and found her root zone and soil temp 68-72. She has been running around 77-78° air temp, so my conclusion was that the garage floor is too cold. I dont have time to build a frame for the tent to sit on right now, so I just slid a heavy wool moving blanket under her. Over the course of the night, her root zone has gone up to 77-86° and she looks much happier. I am just measuring the outside of the bag with a temp gun, so this is not true root zone temps, but it does give an idea.
Good morning Growmies
Just a heads up RQS has a free fan pack for black friday that comes with 3 Titan F1 seeds. Have to register on thier website, easy enough and no minimum purchase amount, it’s with every order. @Newt did you order your titans?
I have some already, and was planning to pass on these, then Mrs. Newt mentioned that she splurged on herself a bit, so said I had a no-questions Ben Franklin do do anything I wanted with… So I’ll likely get some more.
Has anyone ever had their stalks actually bleed after topping a spot? Or atleast look like they are bleeding?
It looks like guttation.
What is guttation in cannabis plants?
To the untrained eye, guttation (or xylem sap) can look like a huge bonus globule of potent resin. Unfortunately, it is merely plant sap, produced by a similar process that creates Maple syrup when a tap is drilled into a mature Maple tree.
During the evening (or the lights-off period for indoor growers) the stomata on the undersides of the cannabis leaf close shut. During daylight hours, the stomata tend to be open allowing the plant to release moisture - a necessary part of photosynthesis.
Closed night-time stomata, in combination with possible high humidity levels, force the plant to squeeze the xylem sap out - mainly because of root pressure. The result is small droplets, often with an amber hue, which appear on the buds and leaves. The first time many growers see cannabis guttation, or xylem sap, they often think their plant is dripping in psychoactive THC-rich resin.
Thanks, @kaptain3d . I figured it was sap or sugars being transferred.
Thanks again kind Sir!
I remember the first time I saw this, I took thought hell ya! But nope, it does tastes sweet though, but that’s about it.
For the terp fans a new study published. I haven’t made it through it yet but so far so good! @kaptain3d @Docnraq
Guttation will turn into mold and bacterial contam. I bet I throw a lb of weed a day away due to it, at work. It would be wise to discover the conditions causing it and eliminate it as it can and will trash your curing weed.
It only happened when I cut the branch.
Vpd is stable at 1.0 for day and night cycle.
What would need to change to rectify it or should I not be as concerned since she is not actually leaking it or anything?
Putta the stem no big deal, watch for it on buds. If your vpd is good its prolly from you cutting. I should have read up more.
It’s all good doc! I wouldn’t have thought about it during flower if you didn’t mention it. I had never heard of it so all information is super helpful.
Good afternoon, Growmies!
Things are still crazy as all get out, but getting better on all fronts. MIL has surgery today, so hopefully, all goes well on that front. Another note, christmas was my grandmothers and my wifes grandmothers favorite holiday, so I have put up now my 4th tree, 8 of my 20 Christmas houses, plus various other indoor decorations. I now have all of my outdoor decorations to do! Family christmas is at our house this year! Here are a few pics of some of the decorations
Frozen tree for my daughter
The new addition for this year is the Grinch tree for my wife
Some of the houses
Now, for the girls, my journaling has come to this right now. Lol
But they are looking good
Orion F1 -
Good morning, Growmies!
Just a little update on the girls! The orion is starting to stack more. It has been difficult to keep her spread out and thinned out a bit for air flow, but she is chugging. And the zkittlez is just stretching like crazy and filling out the tent nicely!
Zkittlez - day 48, day 13 Flower
Orion F1 - Day 41
Hope all is well with all your grows!
Looking green and glorious Growmie!
Things are looking great! My grows are good just been working 7 days a week past couple weeks. My daughter has been struck by a car and cant work right now so Im picking up the slack for her. Daughters gotta eat and dads dont let daughters starve…so ill be at work
Can’t wait to see this thing at the finish line because it’s going to be stacked!!! Nice job Growmie
@Docnraq, sorry to hear that, and I hope she makes a full recovery!
Dads going to do what dads have to do!
