@Chasworks … Hey! Oh man it was quite the summer… The heat on the last run was ridiculous pushing into the high 90s. It did affect the stacking quite a bit but the flowers were still amazing smoke on the SODK and the Ghost train.
I pulled some of the ones I just started during that time and waited to chop so I could change the light cycle to off during the hot period b4 planting again… I only left one (and it did not stretch well).
Once I got the lights off from noon-6pm the three new ones I started later look much better and just now hitting their stride as temps have cooled.
I have two intakes running in addition to the fan exhausting the heat from the lights and that seems to have mitigated the issues without the need for co2. I also have 4 earth boxes amended and prepped from a couple weeks ago… Dumped some 12 seed clover crop on them and have been keeping them quite moist to compensate for RH with two intakes sucking in cool air.
SO… With that said… Not the best run going but they are definitely coming along considering conditions. I have the older auto at 55 days from seed and the other three are now 42 days from the day the beans touched the dirt. Going pretty heavy indica this round.
Pinot Noir Auto (CDLCxDouble Grape) - 42 days from seed. Genetics - Mephisto
- I would say they all should finish stretching over the next 7-10 days as they transition into stacking. Legs are poking out nicely even though this is not the biggest strain out there. Very happy they’re stretching away from the main stem with a little daily encouragement. Very indica Dominant strain I ran two cycles ago… Some of the dankest I’ve ever grow. Her foliage is smelling like black powder already and will change to that skunky fine grape wine as she gets into flower.
Toof Decay Auto (Blueberry x Grapefruit) 42 days from seed). Starting to stretch and fatten the legs a little… Still a bit fragile as I broke one at the main stem. Not much to say…a late bloomer but Looks like she wants to keep stretching till she is the dominant in the tent. Very very excited for this stanky dank… If you’ve ever grown her, you know why.
Forgotton Cookies Auto (Walter White x GSC - Forum Cut) 42 days from seed… I was worried as she was stunted as a seedling… But… She held off the flower and started raging like a champ the last 10 days or so. Very nice separation starting to happen on pretty much every satellite and she has a lot of stretch and fattening to do the next 10 days also. Very happy to see she is going more the way of indica with so much sativa in her genetics. The last one I grew is still my main smoke and I only have about 1/4 oz left. Im thinking about running a full 8x8 with just this strain. It is a superb balanced high that checks the box for both sativa and indica lovers…And tasty af with wet greasy nugs that will coat the pallet. The Walter White just puts it in out a bounds status. It a legit everyday go to smoke.
Pineapple Runtz Auto (Pina Auto x Runtz) 55 days from seed. This is a strain ive ran at least 1 of for four cycles in a row… That should tell you how dank the flower is… an I mean every time and this cycle is no exception. You are talking wet, wet, greasy weed every single time with some of the loudest odors in a tent you will ever smell. Just delicious. Disappointing that she stopped stretching in the heat but the flowers are super wet even for this strain. So it will be a small jar, but a jar I will want nonetheless.
Pineapple Runtz nug 55 days from seed… Im guessing shell be about a 75 day seed to harvest.
This is what happens when your Sour Stomper stunts in 100 degree heat… Not much you can do about it except drop a Walter White bean right next to her (you have to look closely but she’s popped)
… Talk to you in a week or two. The fall run is right around the corner and this is the farthest ahead ive ever prepared my boxes… And they are absolutely jam packed including a few new additions to my soil mix. The worms are going crazy right now… Super excited to grow some monster autos (like 1 per 4x4 space) coming up. This tent is gonna smell for miles with the girls I got planned.
