M.O.B.Y - My Own Back Yard 2019
I got a late start this year due to work and spring busyness. I wasn't able to start the seeds I made last year until June 1st. I soaked them and started them under florescence lights for the first few weeks before kicking them outside. The strains are the best male I had last year crossed with only the best select females. Last year I ended up with quite a mixed bag (pun intended) and only about half were keepers in the sense of being really special.
They have been growing pretty good and fast as the weather has been really great. No massive heatwaves like last summer here in the PNW and there has been quite a few rainy days as well. In the beginning I fed them Gaia Green's 4-4-4 with some other amendments. Now they are just starting to go in to flower and I have switched to Gaia Greens Power-Bloom 2-8-6.
Pic with the water bottle for size is a strain i developed last year that is beginning to bud and smells absolutely amazing/exotic/candy. The other two similar pics are sister plants of the same cross all starting to bud.
I've been watering with rain water i collect when i can and spring water when i cannot. I try and alternate bloom feed water and then straight water and also gave some terpene boosting addons like epsom salts , molasses and insect frass. I top mulch with thick layer of straw.
Almost every plant has a resident spider or two that seem to be devouring the pests. The black one you see jumped out as i was rubbing a stalk and startled me ! I jumped back and took its pic , it came out to challenge me at the outboard end of a leaf and meant serious business (get away from my plant)
