I decided to go ahead and snap a few shots with my I-phone. It takes a lot better pics than my cheapo camera. Especially close ups.that is a very unusual looking bud to me it is actually very beautiful and great shots all you guys make me feel bad with all of your great shots
Hey alphatoy, I've read up a bit about finishing flowers and since I started lowering the temps and humidity levels during the last few weeks I've noticed a lot more fall like colors coming out. The green crack was never purple like this before. I'm sure the strain has a lot to do with it also. The other thing I tried this time for increased trichome production is a dark period. It's somewhat controversial but the majority of my research has recommended it. I stopped the water, turned off the heat and lights and left em alone for 48 + hours. In fact I went out of town and it was almost 72 hours of darkness. They were full of sticky yum when I left but they seemed even more so when I returned and gave them the chop. Seven days later, and wow! Apparently these methods kick in their defense mechanisms which increases the goodness we are after. It may all be hog wash but I'm a believer. @Sunshine will you chime in with your thoughts and words of wisdom?Really beautiful Buds Jason I have yet to grow any that turns purple or dark leaves mine are always green, I have yet to reveg a plant right I figured why reveg when clones are faster to get and I do love floating seeds and watch them grow how many of your plants do you hydro like the one on MOTM with the roots? I have never tried that also I always do it the old way. it sure seems like a lot of members are not showing up miss a lot of the oldies and new members, but I have to remember my age and retired. or just tired
Jason my friend how do you like those material bags I have 5 of them but have not used them as of yet do they drain the water faster or do they hold water good that is the reason I have not used as of yet want my plants to retain their water?Hi Alphatoy. Yes I just gave them the chop today. Been pretty busy lately. They just finished up a couple days of darkness. I was gonna veg. 3 of them but decided against it. Turned out super sticky View attachment 9761View attachment 9763View attachment 9764View attachment 9761View attachment 9766
Thanks bud! I appreciate the votes!!I'm very pleased with the results on this grow. I have my two clones of each Peyote Critical, Critical Orange Punch and Green Crack vegging out and I think I'll flip them for the new year to 12/12 and just focus on these 6 for now. Then I'm probably going to start a new nursery of seedlings for my spring planting. I'll keep this post going with the clones and maybe start a new one with the new seedlings. For now I have some serious smoking to do....Wow I believe you are a winner MOTM sorry my MOTM picture for you didn't win but the winner was a better one but I liked your little girl root congratulation on the win
The Gelato OG turned out nice. A real smooth mellow smoke. The buds are more brown than green. My favorite by far is the Peyote Critical. Coincidentally the same one as MOTM. It tastes absolutely delicious. That's the only way I know how to describe it. BTW the Critical Orange Punch is getting an obvious citrus scent and flavor now.
