Hey my friend :v: sorry I haven’t been on here for a while. It’s been a rough couple of weeks :pensive: my toothache is gone, for now. I’ve been rinsing my mouth with hydrogen peroxide & keeping ice on my cheek & it’s all better thank God! For now anyway. Gotta get to the dentist soon! And my back is feeling a bit better, nothing my buds won’t help :grin: I’ve had more procedures than I can count lol. As for the Blazer! Still have work to do. Now that I’m feeling better hopefully I will get it squared away. Ok to Gelato! I had to go back & catch up on the dates & shit lol. It’s been ten days since the flip. I never pay attention to the timing of that, I just look for the essentials, like trichrome color. She is 8 & a half weeks old if my calculations are right. I never intended on letting her veg for so long. I should have gotten my tent situation taken care of before I started. She is 27" tall & touching the sides of the 3 by 3. I had to zip tie the carabineers coming off of the light to the hanging brackets to keep the light where it should be, thank God she stopped stretching lol. As for the fungus gnats, they are almost gone​:crossed_fingers:I’m still seeing some newborns crawling around the pot and some flying around the room & in the tent but not as bad as it was. They lay their eggs in the moist soil so I’ve been letting the top two inches of the mg dry out a bit. I’m afraid that if I go back to watering every other day they will come back with a vengeance. Now that I’m able I’m going to go to the hydro store & get some of the jacks bug killer you told me about. And get my $ back & look elsewhere for a tent. It’s been almost 3 weeks waiting for his order to come in that has the new tent’s. Keeping my bedroom as dark as I can has turned from a hassle into a nightmare! I busted my nose & my mouth trying to navigate in the middle of the night to get to the bathroom & stepping on one of the yellow sticky traps lol. The lower nodes are growing horizontally & aren’t getting much light cause the tent is too small I think! I appreciate you keeping me in your prayers :heart:. Here’s the latest pic. I hope your doing as well as can be expected!! And are in good spirits :pray: I’ll get back here this evening :v::heart::sun_with_face::potted_plant::us::muscle:

Hey brother glad you are doing better my friend :slightly_smiling_face: yes sir getting old is the shits :face_with_raised_eyebrow: I got no teeth, my body is falling apart, my neck I hurt 28 years ago 3 surgeries, 5 fusions in c section, lol 5 out of 7. My head feels like a bowling ball balanced on a broom stick :crazy_face: but like you I am glad I got weed these days to help with the pain and mellows me out​:+1: yes too hot still to work on cars!!! 104* here today Gelato is looking fantastic brother :ok_hand: I see she isn’t yellowing anymore :grin: she transitioned quite fast and I would say a couple more days and your buds will have a look of hedgehogs, that is when I call it one week into flower, so 14 days from flip call it 1 week into flower :hedgehog::smile: hey brother I am glad the dunks helped with the gnats but no matter what you do will help with them as far as watering, my daughter ruined a good plant trying to dry out the gnats. Continue to water every other day as that plant is building bud now and it is more important to pump water to the roots, and a bush that size in a 3gal pot is going to suck it dry in that amount of time. The gnats be damned buds need water lots of water lol :rofl: yeah captain jacks dead bug is good, I found this at ace hardware also that I spray the little bastards crawling on the pots and top of soil, I don’t spray the plant at all. I go to war with them :smiling_face:

Yes she will grow outwards until she touches something, tent wall or another plant lol they touch but not go further :wink: and now they will go vertical since she is in flower. Her growth is right on schedule and you are fine my friend. Ha ha I lmao :rofl: about trippin around in the dark, too funny my friend… Yes doing fantastic here buddy, I keep putting one foot in front of the other thanks to the gods :pray: trying to stay cool here in the desert :desert: can’t complain :grinning: Hope your day goes well too my friend I will holler at you later @Brainsacco1

Hey yall here we are still week 13 day 95 week 6.5 flowering and both girls are doing fantastic, they are stopping normal growth and top buds would be orange pistols only Except for the foxtails!!! You can see on the close up shots orange patches of pistols, the calyx with orange has a good amount of amber tricomes, older sugar leaf has tons of amber :yum: but 6 1/2 weeks I can only tell by mid plant and lower buds to tell if they are ripe :wink: so I am just letting them drink all they can and have not fed as my ppms are pretty high. Here’s the closet today


Here is LA Ultra today her foxtails are not as prominent as goldleaf, I’m confident her buds are going to be nice dense nuggets :grinning: so could be good yield but we’ll see in a week or two. As you can see the buds appear dark as they ripen.


Here is Goldleaf today, she has lots of long foxtails and it’s hard to find mature calyx anywhere, but will wait for lower buds to mature :wink: you can see dark orange patches where old bud or caylx can be found

Her buds are dense too except for the foxtails, but should yield a decent amount :+1:


Anyway here is my buddies auto I showed you a couple weeks ago, stopped stretching and is building bud nicely :+1: lot of bush for a autoflower :grin:

Anyway you guys hope you all have a great week, happy growing yall :blush: till next time

Hello my friend :v: thanks for the compliments :+1: we are doing a great job on her aren’t we!:blush: I hate to hear that about your neck and all of the other problems your having :pensive: bless your heart! I’ll keep that house plant and garden bug spray in mind. The mosquito dunks seem to be doing the trick, thank God :pray: it was getting pretty bad lol. Now I just see a few in the pot when I water her & some flying around, when I would sit at my desk playing on the computer I looked like I was having a seizure swinging at those little mf,s lol. I had to fight them to keep them away from my drinks. I made several traps to catch em. I put some strawberries and pieces of bananas and a little milk blended well! Lol in coffee cups with cellophane strapped over the top held in place with a rubber band & poked little holes in it. They love it :grin: the fly strips weren’t working anymore. I think they got hip to them because when I first started using them I was catching dozens of them. Now I just catch a few here and there. Even when they were at their worst they stayed away from them after about a week or so. same thing with the yellow sticky traps :thinking: witch by the way I got rid of most of them cause I got tired of stepping on them & accidentally grabbing them in the dark. Talk about messed up! It’s pretty gross grabbing them things with dead bugs all over them lol. They say to use the dunks with every watering and that it could take up to about 3 weeks to get rid of them. The guy at the hydro store told me he has something called BMC & says it works great & works good as a preventative measure. I haven’t researched it yet, he says one bottle will work on like 500 gallons, so it will last a long long time. I’ll stick with the dunks since it’s working & I already have some. Your mgpm is definitely not mixed like mine, I fed her today and the ppms going in were 940 in one gallon & 910 in the other & coming out was 1120. Do you think I should keep up with what I’m doing? She looks very healthy ( best looking one I’ve grown so far) no colored tip’s with a healthy looking green. I’ve read that foxtails are full of resin, and will get you high​:+1: I know this is true because I probably smoked more foxtails than bud since I started growing lol. A little harsh but definitely keepers! Your hogs look like they are loaded with some beautiful trichomes :yum: I can’t wait for mine to start to look like yours!! I talked to the dood at the hydro store today and he says his order was delayed because of the 4th of July holiday, but he ordered it almost 3, weeks ago. He said the tent should be there Friday. I told him I would be there in the afternoon & if it wasn’t there to make sure he had the cash to give back to me. I pay cash for everything I get there so neither one of us has to pay taxes​:smirk: He’s starting to remind me of a used car salesman :upside_down_face: your friends plant is looking good! Looks like a nightmare to trim in the end lol. Your an excellent teacher :+1: and your method is pretty straightforward and easy to follow with awesome results :star::star::star::star::star: for you brother! I heard about the heat wave y’all are having :fire: along with the rest of the country but I believe yours is the hottest. Thank God you don’t have the humidity like us, it’s generally in the low to mid 70,s during the day and gets into the mid to upper 80,s and for a couple months into the 90,s. I used to fish a lot before I moved here lol. I pretty much stay inside during the summer, witch is hard for me cause the less I move around the more my back hurts :face_with_head_bandage: and when I go out on the porch for a smoke I’m pretty much soaked when I get back inside :sweat_smile: I hope your week is off to a good start & your feeling well!!! I’ll check in later :v::heart::potted_plant::sun_with_face::us::muscle:

Good afternoon brother thanks for the empathy for my pain :pray: But as long as I don’t over do it and all I am alright :blush: grateful to be here today :pray: Hey glad the dunks are doing great, I lmao yes well I have a bunch of house plants and have the little bastards there too and I am clapping spazmaticly :raised_hands: trying to take them out in the air!!! And for some reason they love the smell of my morning cereal, landing in my milk :crazy_face: I still have a few after the mosquito bits, but they never get out of hand again thank goodness :sweat_smile: yes my friend dose of nutes look good my nutes I try for 1200 during flower coming out, I would assume that looks like a good number for you as you are absolutely right on doing a great job with Gelato and she is looking fantastic :grinning: with the ppms later they may get weird as the peat moss breaks down, but now they are pretty reliable :grin: Hope dude at the hydro store fixes your problems Friday :grinning: The thing about foxtails yes they are full of tricomes and any tricome is good, and a good thing about foxtailing this early is the tricomes are turning cloudy and maturing. But for the most part tricomes don’t have time to mature and those clear tricomes are supposed to give a buzzier high, instead of mellow :thinking: the buds below the foxtails have layers and layers of amber tricomes so I grind the whole thing bud and foxtails and feel mixture is good :+1:I talked to HLG yesterday about foxtailing and Greg was knowledgeable but he asked me to call back tomorrow and talk to Brock whom he said would be able to answer all my questions :wink: my concerns are why now??? Past grows I had some here and there, but all 3 of the current plants? My hlg 100s in the 3000k flowering boards are probably around 100 thousand hours of use and I am wondering if the degeneration or change in frequency happens from age? Greg said I may have lost 7% of efficiency, but wasn’t sure about the effects. We’ll see tomorrow lol :laughing: you know I tried Rhino skin silicon additive and I have to say I see maybe a bit more quantity, but it seems all are nice thick tricomes with big heads, I remember seeing different shapes mixed in long skinny with tiny heads etc. But I really don’t know lol… Thanks for the compliment for my buddies grows but this guy is in dwc 5gal bucket with advanced nutes, and my buddy in the 4x4 tent is coco/perlite with advanced nutes in autopot system :grinning: neither do my system. No gnats for either lol but I got them going on a good thing, now they don’t listen to me anymore :rofl: I love them and they will learn or not ha ha :grin: they both have their hands full this grow!!! They are happy with their work :smiling_face: thanks man I appreciate you enjoying my method buddy and so happy you are enjoying this grow :grinning: Hey I spent a couple years in Texarkana Texas with super high humidity and hated it, I could not wait to get back here to the desert :+1: a lot of people here get cabin fever being stuck indoors from the heat and the cold weather BUT I love summer :sunny: I don’t even run ac, I have a small portable swamp cooler that blows on my chair during the hottest hours. I lived in St George Ut for 25 years and temperatures there 125* !!! So I am comfortable with 104 lol :laughing: I hurt during winter :upside_down_face: Having a wonderful day today just chilling at home enjoying some of a Ethos genetics strain of auto chem x Pluto I grew in grow 13 :grin: hopefully you are having a great day over yonder my friend holler at ya later man :innocent: @Brainsacco1

@Dennis62 hey bud I checked into the BMC and it’s been around for some time. It’s One of the Ingredients in the dunks. What he is trying to sell me is a concentrated form that you can buy at Walmart for about the same price. It’s not harmful to humans or the buds, in fact it’s beneficial in some ways. I’m spending a small fortune on this grow with duct tape, black out curtains, traps and other stuff lol. It’s in a whole lot of other products as well. I’ll stay on top of keeping them under control as much as possible. They seemed to have snuck up on me and got out of control fast! What can they do about the boards losing efficiency overtime? If you don’t know? Let me know what they tell you, please! So now that I’m at this point with Gelato, I’ve been using Bio Canna, Bio Flores 2-2-5 at 20 mls per gallon and you see where it gets my ppm’s. I have these potential products to choose from. I’ll add a picture or two to show you, plus I have some bat guano that I only used once a few grows back & don’t know if it helped or not. I read that you can easily burn your plants if not used correctly so I stopped. The car salesman talked me into buying the bio Flora nova 4-8-7. Your probably not familiar with these but I have no one else to ask that I can trust and always getting different advice makes it harder to choose lol. Same thing when I research them, different opinions :upside_down_face: enjoy your ethos & your day! I wish we had low humidity here lol, I’d be out fishing every chance I got. I love to get a good buzz & catch big fish! The buzz makes them seem bigger lol.



My sister got this bowl for me while she was on vacation visiting family in NY, I didn’t ask how much it cost, because everything in NY is completely outrageous $
:v: my friend :sunglasses:

Oh I was going to mention that I at this time take some inward growing leafs in the body of the plant, I don’t take a lot I leave most cuz with mgpm you will lose lower leafs sooner or later from yellowing here and there. The bottom 18 inches I only thin to get a little airflow leaving 80% till further into flower. I don’t take a lot from the canopy until next week or so then I open the canopy a little, then 5 weeks into flower I open up a good deal. Anyway what to look forward to lol :laughing: I guarantee you will have mg problems, but pruning and everything has its reasons and we get through with minimal problems. Hey brother I have faith in the general hydrophobics flora nove bloom during flower, I have another buddy with a flood and drain system with 12 plants and uses the general hydrophobics nutes. I keep it simple and inexpensive and supply with one veg and the two flowering nutes called for by the designer, they supply the 3 numbers npk and any nute line also has other micro and macro nutrients so you don’t need to add other than cal mag. I of course tried silicon this grow but I can’t afford to do more lol. You give a pk booster, it has no nitrogen but mind your ppms, I’ve never seen a problem with the weed I grow with the basics, plus it says on my title simple grow :wink: I don’t see any reason for fish or bat guano etc its already in your 3 numbers, granted organic but why? They are not going to grow any better in my closet and hard on the pocket. So I guess what I am trying to say is pick a line with a veg, and flowering so you got numbers, whether it be general hydro, or other line and cal mag is all you need. Everything else is optional and may or may not be necessary for what I do. Hope this is helpful man. :slightly_smiling_face: that is a beautiful bowl man :grin: nice of your sister lol. I am a bong smoker, smoother thru water lol I am considering a herb vape machine, my daughter has one, pretty cool :sunglasses: I went uptown for dinner at a casino, now on my butt stoned to the gills ha ha :joy: have a great evening my friend holler at ya later

Well that sucks the fertilizers I have been using in the Netherlands doesn’t have a website anymore, so I am going to have to decide on a new nutrient line myself lol. I have enough veg nutes to get through next grow, but I have 3 grows of flowering nutes. Oh well I’ll have to get a veg of the line I wanna go with and mix and match lol good things never last :relieved:

@Dennis62 good morning brother :sun_with_face: I’ve been slowly lollipoping her & plan on doing like you said, removing some inner growth. I read a few years ago that it’s best to remove the ones that grow inward. Might have heard it from you lol. As far as removing some later into flower! I’ve only done that to the ones that were shading bud’s. If you do it differently then I’ll do as you suggest :+1: I also use a water bong, ( sensitive lungs lol) I believe this new one is a novelty item. It has some kind of black coating on the inside of the bowl that is chipping away & the air holes are really small, so It would be very difficult to keep clean. I clean my bong a lot! I think it makes the smoke taste better :yum: ok I’ll use the gen. cal mag & PK booster? Just need to know when. The car dealer said to start the gen. hydro about 3 weeks into flower. But I don’t really trust his advice! He says he grows but I don’t believe him. It isn’t legal here & he owns 2 stores so he has a lot to lose. I hope to get her as far along as possible without burning her lol. I got good deals on the other ones & will use them when I run out of the ones I’m using now. I tend to go overboard when it comes to buying recommend! nutes​:roll_eyes: I’m going to use everything up & take notes on each one, then pick one & stay with it. I’m on a low budget ( the kinks lol) as well and I tend to save for a while then I’m like a kid in a candy store :grin:.I’m pretty sure I have a couple that I don’t need :sweat_smile: I hope you enjoyed your dinner! And I know your enjoying your buzz​:exploding_head::stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:. If I don’t get the tent fri. I’m going to use one of the Vivosun ones, since I have the room blacked out ha ha & keep everything inside of it so I’m not stepping on or eating shit I shouldn’t be lol. That sucks about your nutrient dealer! Hopefully it’s just a glitch in their computer​:crossed_fingers: the Bio Canna line is a good one & is “organic” I might go back to it when I run out, depending on how these work. I know your happy with what you use & hope they come back online or you can find it elsewhere! Have a great day my friend!! :v::heart::sun_with_face::potted_plant::us::muscle:

@Dennis62 hey bro I’ve been meaning to ask you, when the mg releases nutrients and your watering using the same ppms you’ve been using doesn’t it get too hot?

I got turned onto Mega Crop by @OGIncognito it’s pretty cheap and real easy to use…just add water! The same company make PK Booster for flower as well, also cheap! I’m using both now on my tent ladies, and just the Mega Grow on my outdoor ladies. The buds are really stacking in the tent, I almost think better than with Advanced Nutrients 've been using previously (and still will, have most of a 4liter jug of Micro, Grow, and Bloom left, as well as 4liters of Sensi-Cal).
A 3 lb bag of the Mega Crop was like $25 and will mix like 1000 liters (230 gallons or so).

Good afternoon yall thank you all for the great suggestions, I will definitely be checking them, I did a deeper search on the fertilizer company and I found them and they did change the last part of their internet address. I will do more investigation, I switched to jacks 321 for part of a grow, I didn’t like the look of my plants 1/2 way through the grow and switched back to my flower power nutes, so I am a little apprehensive about changing :face_with_raised_eyebrow: appreciate the information @Spudgunner @OGIncognito I looked at part 1 but have problem finding part 2? They have a part a & b in different bags? They have several products. I have to be careful because I grow in miracle grow potting mix which has time released nutes that can be pretty hot :fire: thanks guys

I became a jacks fan overnight! Its so simple to use vs the foxfarms trio i was using. Those are the only 2 i have any experience with though.
