Transplanted the orange creamsicle to the raised garden today. Blueberry seams to have stalled a little but should be ready to transplant by Thursday. I decided to use liquid nutes for the gsc and the Gaia green in the garden. I’m a little more comfortable with the liquid nutes at the moment. Hopefully after this grow I’ll have the organic down.

I know last time I said gsc was getting synthetic nutes but I changed my mind again and added Gaia 4-4-4 to it on Monday. I’m going away for the weekend so I’m going to water everything on Friday morning. Blueberry is moving the slowest but the other two are doing great. I’m glad I trained the oc because I think it’s going to get pretty big. I’ll post more pics on Monday with my weekly update. I just wanted to mention I fed the gsc.

I’m not an outdoor guy, but something about a healthy plant sitting in the sun…ah it’s just a beautiful sight!! Following along!
It definitely is. This is only my second outdoor run so we’ll see if I can keep them happy. Thanks for checking it out.

I transplanted the blueberry today to the garden. I top dressed with Gaia 4-4-4 and dusted the soil with some diatomaceous earth. The oc was starting to yellow on the bottom fan leaves before I transplanted. I may add a feeding of ff grow big if it looks worse tomorrow morning. Gsc is looking amazing. She follows the sun all day it’s very cool to watch her move. And last week I noticed instead of throwing out two branches and a mutant fan, it started making 3 fans and 3 branches every other node.

I’m going to add cal mag to filtered water for the gsc. I’ll add cal mag and nutes if needed to filtered water for the oc. And just plain well water for the bb. If I think the oc can go the weekend without nutes I’m just going to use my well water and a little epsom salts. I’ll update tomorrow when I figure it out.

So I added half a dose of nutes to the oc but when I got home yesterday she was looking a lot more yellow. I watered with epsom salt today and just well water for the blueberry. I added 1/2 teaspoon of cal mag to the filtered water and watered the gsc today as well. The two in the garden aren’t looking great but the gsc is growing great.

Everyone is looking happy again. I think I had an mg deficiency going on with the oc so I added a Tablespoon of epsom salt. And havnt had any issues since. I’m going to add another teaspoon to its watering tomorrow. The Gaia 4-4-4 should be kicking in soon. It’s been a little windy the past week so I added a stake to the bb. The leaves on the gsc are looking a little wrinkly but I’m hoping it’s just from the wind. I also spray the gsc with neem oil once a week. Trying to keep the leaf hoppers and pm away.

Last week I noticed aphids or so I believe on the underside of a few leaves of the gsc. I’ve been spraying with neem oil once a week but they still somehow showed up. I caught it pretty quickly and think I’m keeping them at bay. I bought some lady bugs but don’t really want to release them till the neem wears off. The oc and blueberry seem to be ok as of now but I also sprayed them last week as well just as a preventative treatment. Everyone is growing great and looking good. I added a layer of rabbit poop to the oc. It was looking a little lighter in color than the other two. I don’t know what it will do but wanted to try a little experiment.

Any advice on the pests would be appreciated. Thanks for checking it out. I cut 3 blueberry clones today and 2 oc. I left one bb in a cup of water. And used a rooting powder, rock wool and humidity domes On my heating pad for the rest. So far I’ve only lost 1 clone so far with the rock wool. And it’s because I was impatient and opened it to check on the roots. I usually just spray the dome once a day while letting it get air for up to a half hr. Till I see roots. Then just bury the rw Cube in soil. Leaving the top of the cube above ground.

Rabbit poop seems to have helped the oc. She grew 4” in the past 2 days. I tied down a few branches to open up the middle a little more to get some light on the lower section. I trimmed a few smaller branches on the oc and the bb. They got a decent amount of water the past few days due to rain. It should stay dry for the next few days. I released lady bugs (50 per plant) a few days ago and they definitely cut back the amount of critters. I’ll probably spray with neem tomorrow as well as add another dose of Gaia 4-4-4 to the gsc. Bb will get another dose of the Gaia later in the week. Because I added the rabbit poop to the oc I might wait another week to feed that one. Everything is looking really good still. so besides the pests I have nothing to complain about.

I fed the gsc on Monday and the other two I fed yesterday. I added a compost tea to the gsc but ever since, she’s been looking a little droopy. I’m just going to give her some time. I sprayed everything with neem oil yesterday. I tied back a few branches on the oc to give some light to the lower section. I’m about to transplant my gsc clone to a 2ga fabric pot and run her inside with fox farm liquid nutes. A few of the older fan leaves on the gsc are getting brown and white around the edges. I’ve been adding a half a teaspoon of cal mag every watering with 2ga of water. I’m not sure if I’m not adding enough or if I added too much. So I might just wait a week to see how she does. If it’s still getting worse next week I’ll assume it needs more. Besides the little issues with the gsc everyone seems to be doing good.

So the yellow on the fan leaves got worse. But I think she was under fed. Her feeding from 2 weeks ago should be kicking in. Fingers crossed. I trimmed most of the yellow leaves after taking the pics. The blueberry and orange creamsicle are both looking great. It’s been a bit rainy the past week. Hoping it dries out soon. Everyone is getting big. The gsc is 5’ 3” tall from top of soil.

Gsc: she looks like she’s flowering to me. Idk what’s going on.I tied back 4 of the back branches to open it up a little and get more light to them. She’s still getting a little yellow but not nearly as fast as she was. I watered yesterday as well with 4 ml of cal mag and 2ga of filtered water. It’s only grown 2” since Monday.

The orange creamsicle and blueberry are doing fine in the garden. Oc has a cpl yellow fans down low but I think they’re not getting enough light. Their feeding should’ve kicked in yesterday. Hopefully this gsc issue starts clearing up soon.

Gsc is still getting yellow and flowering. Idk why it’s flowering. But I do think the leaves are getting yellow because I’ve only been feeding veg nutes and it’s looking for flower nutes. So I added Gaia veg and flower nutes to her 3 days ago. 50/50 on the nutes. I also added 4-4-4 (which I use for veg) to the two in the garden. The blueberry and orange creamsicle are getting big probably close to 7’ tall and I still have a couple weeks till they should start flowering.

I just noticed the blueberry isn’t looking too good. All the tops are wilting. It was looking great on Sunday she was actually growing the fastest out of the 3. I just got my neem oil and insecticidal soap so I’m going to mix up a batch and give the 2 in the garden a good spray this Evening.

I know it’s been a little bit but I’m back with an update. Gsc is still losing leaves but it seems to have slowed down again. I don’t think I’ve been adding enough nutrients. I thought it was a 10ga pot but it might be bigger. I’m going to add more of the Gaia flower nutes this weekend. She’s definitely in full bloom. I don’t know how or why she’s flowering already but it doesn’t seem to be reverting back to veg so I’m going to let her do her thing. I have a clone of hers I have inside that I flipped to veg last week. There’s not much to say about the blueberry and the Orange creamsicle besides they’re getting huge. A few lower fans yellowing on them but nothing to worry about. I’ll be feeding them half veg half flower nutes this weekend as well. Thanks for checking it out.

that’s an 8’ hook and they’re both way taller than it. And I figure I would throw in a pick of the butterfly that was liking the oc.

So I found what looks like powdery mildew on 3 gsc leaves. I wiped it off immediately. I havnt done my daily inspection yet but will spray with a milk water mixture if it still looks like it’s there. She seems to be getting better on the deficiency front. I’ve been adding kelp meal and bumped up the Gaia bloom an extra tablespoon this morning. I was feeding 8 tablespoons, today I fed 9 plus two of the kelp meal. The yellow leaves are still slowly dying but no new leaves have turned yellow. I have a few yellow leaves on the oc and bb but they got fed half Gaia all purpose and half bloom this morning. They’re still growing great. I should be getting 14/10 today or tomorrow so I’m hoping they start to flower soon.

So I started seeing pistils on the oc and bb today should be in flower soon. The gsc is still getting yellow and I think I still have 4-5 weeks left till harvest. Hopefully the feeding kicks in soon and she starts feeling better. I ordered roots organic Terp tea that should be here by this weekend hopefully and if she’s still getting worse will get a dose. I sprayed the two in the garden with neem for the last time now I gotta figure out a pest deterrent for flower. I’m thinking just spray it with the hose once a week if it doesn’t rain. But I’m looking for other options. They’re still looking the same so I’ll wait till the end of the week for more pics.

Gsc is still yellowing but buds are definitely still getting fatter. I’m thinking it should be ready for harvest in 2-3 weeks. I found some bud rot on the main cola that I’m pretty upset about. I had to cut the top 6” off. I checked it with the loupe and it’s still pretty clear. With about 50% cloudy. And this is supposed to be the dry part of summer. SMH I don’t know what’s gonna happen late September and early October with the other two. The bb and oc are looking good they’re definitely stretching they grew 6” in 4 days. I’m not seeing any buds yet but hopefully pretty soon. I’m 6’1” tall for reference. And they are trained lol I’m guessing the bb is around 10’ and the oc on the right is probably around 11 or 12’.

Gsc is about all cloudy trichomes with a few amber here and there. I would really like to give it another week but the bud rot is getting too bad. I’m going to have to chop her down sometime this week.

The bb and Orange creamsicle are in the first week of flower. They have a few yellow leaves down below so fed with ff fruit and flower fertilizer this morning. They’re still stretching pretty good. Oc almost caught up to the bb and I’m sure it will pass it in the next week. Im going to need a 10’ ladder to check these things but from what I can see they’re doing pretty good. I’m starting to see some purple in the oc stems I might add a tablespoon of epsome salts next time it dries up. I’m also going to have to tie up some branches soon it’s getting too big for the garden. I’ll get some pics of the indoor gsc it’s looking a lot denser than the outdoor. Here’s the bb and oc
