Impressive, most definitely. Did you feed her or use special soil or is this just “coming from mother nature”?

Thank you my friend,
FF with loamy soil for the most part. This cool weather should shine a bit of purple
I believe. Started flush this week.

I am so impressed, especially for an outdoor. No burn on any of the leaves. How much FF (I assume you mean Fox Farms) did you use? Ans explain LOAMY soil…where are you at location wise? I got no loamy soil here, only rock hard desert dirt. I have to make ALL my medium myself.
Aren’t you going to trim fan and sucker leaves before you flush? Let energy go right to the colas? Personally I ALWAYS start to trim my babies about a month before harvest. I been at this since the late 60"s

And I agree with your trimming methods,
Those pics may be a bit deceiving. Those leaves are coming strait out of the colas for the final growth serge… She was still 3 weeks out then. Here she is today.


Major leaf removals were late July and early Aug for the most part. I’m about input Mike and look forward to any ideas… Here in Texas soil varies like most places. Basic top soil was my base, and yes, Fox Farm Soil schedule …

Thanks for the input

I’ll hit these as hard as I can PPM wise. this Gelato was as easy and forgiving a grow as it git’s.
Ran it up to 3400 ppm for almost 2 months…

3400 is real high. What did you use to get that high - big bud or similar? Do you find an aftertaste when using nutes like that? Looks like you are in dirt, what nutrients did you use to get these SO PRETTY?

Thank you Mike,
FFarm with a couple of additions like Snow Storm. Although I have to admit, Ive been winging it for 15 years. I’m not sure those high nute numbers are necessary for this achievement. I’m somewhat new to nutes, I’m flushing about for 2 weeks before harvest, but I’m concerned about starving the girls, this years I cut the Nitrogen earlyer that the everything else.
Every year is a new adventure.

Thinking Fox Original Soil next year instead of something from the barn yard.

Opinions/ suggestion in all four corners are sure welcome…

Reb, I posted in “Show your Homegrown”. I will keep posting about how well my organic mulch, Black peat and vermiculite serve as a foundation. I will add some FoxFram organic and keep close eyes on growth. We are still at 100F here in Vegas so I am going heavy in AUTO for winter (outdoor)
