    That looks about week 4..So good job..You will see over the next 4 weeks the growth of the buds will be faster..The first 4 weeks are slow..So hang in there.

    But lookin fantabulous

    Yup Yup Yup...it's just a waiting game now...both are doing good today, enjoying georgeous sunny conditions and big sister is so pretty with her little buds shining in the sun.

    Little sister got a good watering today with my goldfish water and I litterally could see her smiling...(lol well she was perky anyway) They love my goldfish water while in veg mode. the banana/molasses tea is better now for big sister since I weakened it by half.
    Noticed some very very fine web of some sort on a few leaves of big sister I didn't see any mites or spiders tho. So I just broke the ones I saw and wiped the leaves with a clean dry cloth. No evidence of any insect eating anything either. Will keep an eye out tho

    male vs fem

    My experience has been that the males usually flower/bud out before the fems. Once you notice what looks like balls, place a plastic bag over them prior to any movement. I found this keeps any pollen from reaching the fem when you shake the plant. Also, wash your hands real well prior to touching your fems.

    ok thanks...but I am almost 100% sure mine are ladies ;) big sis is 4 weeks into flower and lil sis is slowly catching up after a stunted start to life. But your point of proper hand washing is important as I have other houseplants and garden plants and don't want any transference of anything...

    Well I'm still here, and so is big sis and lil sis...both doing good...lil sis is still on outdoor during the day and inside under lights at night and has grown about 4 inches since I pushed her back to veg.

    Big sis is budding nicely (from my limited experience) I figure I am at about 6 weeks of flower now with her. See the two pics just taken an hour ago of big sis.

    Now remember I started a seedling...well she hd emerged nicely and was growing (see 1st seedling pic) and then I dropped the whole bloody pot upside down on the floor. Dropped her right on her little head...everything came out of the pot...all the soil...the seedling..everything
    I almost cried, but repoted her anyway with little hope...put her under the lights for the night...and...voila...she seemed fine. Now 4 days later (after the head dropping incident) she has grown (2nd pic)

    So the moral of this story is "if your mother drops you on your head as a baby...don't worry, chanches are it won't cause any permanent damage :D

    Damm big sis is looking wonderful..Only wish you had a better camera, so I can see it in Hd..I love nug porn..But ohh well..

    Is the seedling the same bag seed that your currently growing?

    Yes the seedling is the same bag seed as big sis and lil sis (I call her baby sis and I haven't even sexed her yet but I'm just hoping) But the problem is those seeds have been collected over the years (some fem ) some not who knows. The only thing I know is I am having fun learning with them.
    I will use my daughters blackberry cam to try to get better pics right now. These may be clearer

    Hey bud...good morning :) I spent a long time yesterday observing and lovingly looking for any sign of insects or other issues with both big and lil sister.

    I noticed something with lil sister that I hadn't really noticed before (due too stunted growth start and then the early pre-flower). I just hadn't noticed that lil sister appears to be a different strain. She is shorter and much bushier than big sister. Now that she is back in veg and has grown, her true characteristics can be seen.

    Don't know if you remember the 3 males (well I was convinced they were males) that I cut down ? Well lil sister appears to be of the same strain as they were (but she is definitely a girl)

    Now my question is IF big sister is sativa sat/dom as some have suggested (because of her tall lanky apperance and thinner leaves) does that mean lil sister with her shorter bushier appearance and fatter leaves is most likely an indica strain ?

    Not that it matters really as this whole thing is for learning anyway, I was just curious....will post a new pic of lil sister in a few min (gotta go take one)

    I'm starting to wonder if you just throw all your good seeds in a bag..That would explain big sister being sativa, and lil sister being indica..


    If that not the case and all the seeds were from the same buds..Then what you have here are two different phenotypes of the same plant..Different phenotypes meaning that one is sativa, and one is more indica..Stranger things have hapend, but it's kinda cool to see that even with the same seeds you can get one sativa dom and one indica dom..

    Ever heard of chem dog and chem dogs sister..That because one seed turned out to be chem dog and the other a different phenotype, resulting in a different plant..

    ahhhhh ok I kinda understand and yes that would be cool to have both phenotypes from one seed batch but sadly I think with my case it is more of a mixed up seed bag..lol
    But it is interesting to see the differences as they grow...This year was just really for experimentation..next spring imma start with purchased fem seeds to be (mostly) sure of what I am getting. Gonna play around all winter with the seeds I have now (and I have quite a few viable seeds here) to learn the basics of clonong and trimming and such then next summer go for my "real" attempt

    Every grow is a learning curve..Just remember that..There isn't something you will never have too much information on..And If you plan on keeping up with your meds, then prepare to be schooled by a plant..LOL

    lol ya I can imagine they (the plants) have a mind of their own some times. My "plan" so to speak...is to have a plant in bud, one in veg and one seedling at all times...well lmao that is my plan...we shall see how I actually execute it.

    Atm I have big sis in bud (at maybe 6 weeks)...lil sis in veg (after a stunted start) and the seedling I dropped on it's head (undetermined sex but no worse for the head dive).

    I am planning a vacation for a few weeks the last week of sept and first week in oct. I PLAN to harvest big sis just before we leave, and leave lil sis and baby sis inside under lights (a trusted neighbour will water every 3 days or so).

    Just b4 we go I will harvest, trim and hang big sis in my closet (each branch cliped onto a hanger) hang her up and line floor, shut the door and go on vacation. When we return I hope I will have something to try ;)

    That's definatly some nug porn..Great job soo far..I can't wait to see it grow up some more..It's always special to see a plant grow up before your eyes..
     
  15. n0va59

    n0va59 New Member

    Well she only has about 3 more weeks to go because I am going on vacation and will be harvesting before I leave. Plan to be gone two weeks so I thought I would harvest her, set lil sister and baby sis under the lights inside at 18/6 and my neighbour will water every few days.
    I figure she will just be at about 10 weeks by the time I leave

    10 weeks for a sativa dominant should be just fine..some newer straight sativa's take only 11 weeks to flower..So if it's a hybrid 10 weeks should be plenty..

    Don't ask me why I feel like I need to harvest very soon because I really have no basis for this feeling other than my feelings...lol but seriously big sisters leaves are not looking so good and I am sure she is severely rootbound.
    The buds have developed about as much as I believe they can, and the entire plant is looking heavy and full (well full to my eye at least)
    I really don't know what else to base my feeling that she is ready on except, after raising her from a seed I just feel that her time has come.

    I don't think shes fully ready yet..I'd stick with the harvest before vacation plan..

    ....sigh....waiting is sooooooo hard....but yes I can wait...I guess the only really thing that will happen is she will die with her buds still intact (in which case I can still harvest...right ?? (although the bud will prob be past it's most potent time) if I understand correctly.
    Damn I wish I still had my kids microscope from when they where kids :( I will be purchasing one as soon as back from vacation for the future grows...Thanks Bud ;)

    The plant can die..But as long as it doesn't freeze and there is light on it, that probably wont happen..Just harvest before your vacation and you should be alright..
