Thanks for the advice. Delaying a day. The stalk is filling in but the leaves are a bit small still.
Not sure about the double grow. Since this is my first I will probably stick to one.
MMMM, who doesn't love pancakes. I'm growing the same strain as @I_like_plants, but a month or two behind. She's definitely a very indica dominate strain with a very short and stout phenotype, so it should be perfect for the Bloom.
Here's the progress so far:
Sprouted after 2 days
About 3 weeks and a nice vacation later Mrs. Griddle was already looking beautiful!
First pruning went well, and loped off some massive fan leaves!
At the end of the veg cycle she had exploded into a small bush.
Today, after a second trim and water change heading into an early bloom stage.
I've had these curing for a bit now, but here are the results from my first harvest...pretty amazing in my view. I might not have trimmed everything ideally given it was my first go 'round...but I did a little quality control testing and this passed the test :-)! The jars are 3 pints ea., ~2.4oz per jar. Again, maybe some dead weight in there due to my novice trimming but a pretty good haul! One thing I need to figure out is the drying/curing better -- this doesn't have the pungent aroma that I think is typical...but the effectiveness seems to be there. harvest.jpg
Hello BLOOM enthusiasts, Happy Thursday!
By now your BLOOM would have alert you of a new software update. Some of the improvements in this update include:
Fixes to the time-lapse status report
Improvements to the radiator fans commands
Fixes to the database overflow instances causing some crashes
And a few bug fixes, including the one that would replace a recipe when changing to a new recipe stage
If you do not see the alert, you can always find the update in the Wi-Fi section of your BLOOM, going to Menu, Wi-Fi, and Software Updates
Let us know if you have any questions or issues pertaining this update.
Thank you, and happy growing!
Your pH and nutrient solution bottles should get you through your first grow and beyond. The system doses a very small amount of nutrient at a time when needed to keep your pH and PPM within the target range without going over. You may notice some depleting faster than others because of the ratios that are set in your grow recipe.
Remember, we recommend completing water changes every 2 weeks, but if you do these more often, you may use up your nutrient solutions faster.
If your PPM is too high, this is likely just because your plant is drinking water at a faster rate, which is going to happen as your plant gets larger! Just add water to the main Nutrient Reservoir to allow your PPM to settle back into the target range.
Buds continue to fill out and color is going from opaque to solid whites and the typical trainwreck burnt orange. Based on the strain grow diaries online, we should see some bright greens in due time. The Trichomes are not full and frosty yet so feels like we have a little while before this baby is ready for the next stage.
Day 100 - cut down my plant and move to dry stage. Bud formations are pretty dense but yield looks to be relatively low comparatively. Regardless I am super excited to get a taste once it’s cured.
Planning on a 5-7 day dry in the bloom, dry trim, and then cure in jars.
Day 90 so getting close to harvest time and need some advice on when to graduate to Flush. Attached are a few pics of the trichomes. Having trouble identifying if they have matured to the cloudy white coloration. The scent is pretty powerful at this point.
Also my plant is showing signs of nutrient burn on the tips so a touch concerned.
Any thoughts from the group?
