On April 22 I planted bag seed from Yoda's Brain and Humboldt Cookies.  A med user gave them to me.

I planted 5 YB and 6 HB.

On April 25 I planted 2 feminized Sour Diesel from Crop King.

This is what it looks like today.

Sorry for the delay in getting the grow log going.

All 6 HB grew, I F'ed up and planted 2 seeds in 1 cup.

So a group of 5 pots in the middle are the HB.

 

YB has had problems. (The group of 3 plants on the right)  2 seeds did not pop up.  The 3 plants that did pop up stretched bad because the cotyledons could not escape the shell.  I think the other 2 seeds could not break the shell open.  I had to pry the shell off all 3 survivors.  2 plants got something that made the first set of leaves shrivel in the middle of the leave blade.  The plants fell way behind.  The one good YB is looking really good.

 

I scratched the spine of all seeds with a sharpening stone and

then soaked the seeds for 24 hours.  

I planted the seeds in a 12oz cup of FOAF with the seed in a divot filled with seed starter.

 

The Sour Diesel popped up without any problems.  White hairs can be made out. (2 pots on the left)

 

The other plants have not shown their sex yet, 5 weeks now.

 

I am vegging outside by day, CFL by night.  Triazicide keeps the bugs away.

I am so sorry for not posting more frequently.  The grow finally showed its sex.

 

All three Yoda's Brain bagseed are female.

2 out of the 6 Humboldt Cookies bagseed are female.

2 feminized Sour Diesel are female.

 

So this year's outdoor grow will be 7 plants.

 

The Yoda's Brain plants are very robust.

Yodas Brain Bagseed (1).jpg  Yodas Brain Bagseed (2).jpg

 

I only cloned the big Yoda.  The 2 smaller Yoda's are growing with good vigor these days.  The bigger Yoda is makings many side branches.  These plants look great so far.

 

The Humboldt Cookies bagseed are also strong plants.

Yodas Brain Bagseed (1).jpg  Yodas Brain Bagseed (2).jpg

 

Unfortunately one of the females was in the pot that I planted 2 seeds in.  I chopped the occupying male, and transplanted the female into a bigger pot.  This plant is smaller than all the other plants now.  I hope I can veg her up decently.  Time is running out.

 

The Sour Diesel plants are strong and stout.  Crop King, you look good again so far!

Sour Diesel (1).jpg  Sour Diesel (2).jpg

 

The sour diesel is not stretching too badly.  I hope to veg them to the max.

 

I have been vegging this grow outside by day under the sun and under 2 40W 2700K CFLs by night.

 

I have left the 4 males outside 24/0 to watch them flower.  I will toss them before they pop.  One got chopped.

Males, Humbolt Cookies.jpg

 

I have 7 cuttings going for a Med user friend.  Only 3 are female.  Can you find the Pope in the pizza?

Humbolt Cookies and Yodas Brain Cuttings.jpg

 

I have a gun to the head with this grow.  I want to veg them a bunch more, but I need to flip in a couple to a few weeks.  The SD could take all the way to the end of October to mature if I veg for 4 more weeks.  The typical June gloom weather has probably slowed the grow.  I guess I didn't start early enough.

 

An April 1 start date is probably right for So. Cal. using my current vegging TEK.

I gave up trying to be a breeder.  One of the wise Topiates voiced an opinion some years back that I have become a believer in.

That is, grow professional, feminized beans.  Don't fuck around.

 

I should learn to feminize seed.  I have all the stuff to do the process.  Then I can just buy regular seeds.

 

I am trying to root a single cutting from 7 plants.  The female mamas are good plants, but do they make good roots?...

Yeah I read somewhere that Sour Diesel is a new pheno along with Indica and Sativa(Afghanica and Indica).  I can't remember the name of the 'stan it is from.  It suppose to have a high THC:OtherShit ratio even compared to sativas(indicas).

 

SD is suppose to be my primary weed for this year, along with White Widow from last year.  If all goes well, I have pro seeds of White Widow and Sour Diesel waiting for me to plant next year.

The Sour Diesel was flipped to 12/12 on July 5th.  The plants are in the garage by night, backyard by day.

Do you think I need to give them a little ferts?

 

The Yoda's Brain bag seed plants are looking good, I will flip the big one in a day or 2.

Yoda's Brain 2017 July 4 (1).jpg  Yoda's Brain 2017 July 4 (2).jpg  Yoda's Brain 2017 July 4 (3).jpg

 

The Humbolt Cookies bag seed plants are also looking good.

Humbolt Cookies 2017 July 4 (1).jpg  Humbolt Cookies 2017 July 4 (2).jpg

 

I think I will also flip the larger one soon too.

The 2 smaller Yoda's and Humbolt should veg for a little longer.

 

I think I will have harvests coming in over a one month period.

I will be adding ferts to plants as they fade, see what happens.  The last 2 years of White Widow faded fast when flipped to flower.  The fan leaves died off fast.  My indoor grows were not so drastic and typically held on to most of the fan leaves.  I am vegging much bigger plants too.  Could the pants be under nourished?

 

All plants are on flowering schedule now.  12 hours outside, then into the garage for the night.

 

The Sour Diesel have been flowering for 19 days.

They are looking so nice.  I am feeding them.  I hope not too much.

 

The Humbolt Cookie on the left, Yoda's Brain front/center 15 days into flower.

The Yoda is a big plant, I hope she can kick it out.

 

Lastly 2 Yoda's and a Humbolt Cookie.  Last day of veg.

The plant with the backlighted pick is the Humbolt.  It is small because it shared a pot with a male plant.  I gave her more veg time, but she had a long way to go.

What kind of ferts have you gone with once you have flipped them? They are looking good. I see you have not cleaned out the lower and inside leaf and trim. Do you prefer to leave that or feel it keeps the plants better health?

(asking for my own application possibilities)

I have been lazy to clean out the plants.  I wanted pics of the state.

I removed a lot of dead and dying leaves.  Typical die off.

One Sour Diesel is definitely a lighter green overall   Hmmm

 

I will not remove anything else(only dying leaves).  Sun makes decent nugs even out of lower stem popcorn.

I have been using 1/4tsp of 10-10-10 miracle grow per feed on the Sour Diesel only.  1/2tsp max per pot so far.

 

I water with a tea of worm castings and small package of Mycromax beneficials.  I make up a 6gal pail of it and bubble air through it.  The plants are drinking up 2.5 gallons a day.

Thanks Skywatcher for reading my thread.  I hope your grow works OK.  I am hoping I can figure out a good TEK for a SoCal outdoor cannabis grow.

Well Skywatcher, the Sour Diesel looks better after getting a cleaning.  They are in full flower too.

And now for some bud porn(my favorite part)...

Don't forget to put molasses in the water every third watering.  I know I do.

 

I have scheduled the plants to mature 10 weeks from now.  I hope these girls can keep up the flowering for longer than the White Widow did.

Looking really sweet !!!

I will be cleaning out the lower leaf and bottom junk on my Blue dream next week, after I return from a short vacation. It is just now going into full flower after moving to a cooler and shadier location. My other two are still shifting into bloom. 

 

What does the molasses do? I am using Tiger Bloom and Big Bloom about every 3 days.

Prizm recommended growing in Fox Farm Ocean Forest and watering with molasses every 3rd time.

He was growing big colas too.

The molasses has complex carbos that feed the microbes in the potting soil.

The microbes help extract minerals and nutrients that the cannabis plant can't otherwise get.

If you read the ingredients of most good potting soils,

you will see that beneficial microbes are added.

I have no been fertilizing, the green looks good.

The crop looks clean.

I have not put anything on the plants to keep the bugs away,

except fly tape for the caterpillars.

 

Only a month and a half to two months to go.

I am sweating and the grow is getting by.

The Sour Diesel is looking like weed.

I like to sit in the garden and watch the weed mature.

A typical view
