The soil is drying more today. Sadie is starting to point her leaf tips down on the lower leaves.
I am seeing various pH swing issues as it dries. Thanks again for everyone finally getting me to drain that soil and most importantly properly dry them.
I think I see what looks to be a seed pod, but I know they weren't pollinated by those males. It's already opened and it looks like a bunch of pistils that are stuck inside the calyx. Some have turned red already. Kinda curious what's going on with that one and if I should act.
IDK if Sadie is foxtailed or just filling out. The pistils are almost swallowed by sugar leaf growth and calyxes. I can't tell if it's separate buds forming close or something like that either. Something similar happened to Sadie that Harmony did, but just spaced farther apart thanks to the stretch. Humidity during the day is almost a constant 50%
Night temps are 70f and 60-70% humidity. I can get a ultrasonic essential oil diffuser that uses water too or one that uses none and is just a fan. The fan one will only cover 100 square feet and the ultrasonic one covers 400. I was thinking of using it to blast some essential oils that might help the pests want to leave and not go near the plants or at least enough to bomb them and confuse the hell outta them. Here's a pic of Sadie. Maybe I'm paranoid. IDK it's my first grow, so I'll see in the end. Foxtail or no with how frosty she's getting I want to smoke her. IDC how she looks as long as she smells and smokes right. Holly and Harmony are both catching up to Sadie in height. I've been bending a shade leaf away from Ingrid's top and literally the next day she started getting bigger fatter buds. Maybe she didn't get enough light or it's just something she does anyways. Maybe she's a lazy girl who grows in spurts not gradually like the rest seem to be. Though the rest are all looking so good I'm so happy. I can't wait until the trichome heads start to turn cloudy. Then I can hopefully not see any more smell change outside intensity during the rest of flowering.
Ingrid looks like she's stretching now like how Sadie did at first. I really think she was held back longer than the rest were if that's the case. I've regained my excitement this grow as thanks to all the help from @ReikoX @Meesh @Skiball @cannabissequoia @Hoodini @toastyjakes @LemonadeJoe @GrapeApe and anyone else my tired brain can't remember for helping me to snap this grow back into shape before it was too late.
Anyways here's Ingrid's pics
And now Harmony's pics
Now Holly's pics
Now the overhead pics
Now the lower level pics
Now the soil pics
I still see some gnats. The plants don't seem to be strongly affected by the drought in a bad way ATM unless I'm mistaken. Lmk if you advise me to water or not. I can water with a gallon or short of it. If I have remaining nute water I'll use it to mix with the cuttings once I change the water again. Speaking of I put the fan leaf I. It off in the water just for kicks and to my surprise I to still alive. A little bit burnt, but once I change the water I assume that will change. I'm just wanting to see what happens. If it roots I'll probably just make a micro diy hydro system with solo cups or something just to see what'll happen with it if it actually grows a plant and not just staying alive in water.
I'm learning so much this grow. Absolutely none of this i was prepared for, but I wont make these mistakes next grow. Next one is going a bit different. The variance in drinking and eating between plants even from the same strain as I now understand is not guaranteed and even if the connected root system works with other plants, in cannabis it causes more problems than it helps with I feel. In case anyone reading this doesn't know and I doubt it, but who knows? An example is where
a chopped down tree that's just a stump in a Grove of trees will be kept alive from the surrounding trees roots sharing nutrients keeping it alive. In rare cases the tree can come back to life and start over as a sapling popping out the middle of the stump.
I'm rambling and tired now. My experiment in my first grow should have waited for me to use companion plants instead of other plants. On top of the fact I should have waited until next grow to mess with the root system at all. I prefer no till. with how the roots seem to be all around the soil now I can say I'm definitely wanting to stay no till from now on.
alo readjusted the fans to create a gentle sway in the plants with no rapid movement at all in even leaf tips on any part of the plants.
I'll updated with anything I forgot later. I'm off to bed now.
