My opinion is this is a really Stretchy & Strong Indica Plant.

A single Gelato seed is the extent of my seed bank. It’ll probably be first when I get back to growing. Looking good! I’ll be watching! :v:

I have a Strong Opinion that this is a stretchy plant so i suggest a tall or decent sized tent like mine. to have a good experience, Because even when i tied her down. the next day she would loop around that hold & stretch towards the light again.


Do u have an intake or exhaust fan?

She looks like she’s happy. Have you started adding nutes yet? If not you might want to check runoff PPMs because she will probably need nutes soon. Checking runoff will tell you how soon.

Get you some wire and wrap it around the branches and pull the branches out towards the edge of the pot and then secure the wire to your pot or whatever that you don’t have to keep taking it down and putting it back up sort of like a form of LST


@Killadruid No exhaust or intake fan. just Regular fans always running.
@DoobieNoobie She in on schedule with foxfarm ocean forest week 2 nutes with big bloom grow big & tiger bloom. going as scheduled but cutting feedings in Half.
I have garden wires that i tied her down with but she always loops around the garden wire & stretches for the light again. i have tied her down 3 to 4 times & she always stretches again. so i decided to just leave her & see is she grows any taller in flower.

Good good sounds like you’re right on track then. Keep up the good work.

Sounds good just remember later on In flowering ur going to wanna bring that humidity down. U can make a loop with ur ties and tie it down so light get down lower ur going to want that light to stay as low as u can to make sure it’s getting light everywhere.

First time post but I M doing gelato as well. Indoor hydro. On 9th week of bloom. My trichomes are still clear. Anyone know how long it takes ?


I’d say here soon u will be comming up on harvest I usually add a week to what they say for the plant transition period. Also its plant dependent some plants will finish faster then others I’ve seen people go over recommended times all the time.

Dude thanks for the info, was not expecting it . Thank you. They are un their 10 wk bloom, looking good, trichomes still clear. Anytime??

Hard to tell much without seeing pics of it. Some plants just want to do their own thing and take longer. Others might finish on what the breeder lists them but like he said usually add a week or two to what they say. And that’s if the plant grew well without ever being stunted or slowed down by anything.

Wanted to update on this grow. any suggestions of how she doing?


Looks like either the light is a touch to close or the temps might be to high based on the leaves at the top and the way the edges are folding up. But she looks healthy other then that. And even that isn’t anything major. Although I’d still correct the issue before it becomes a issue.
