Day 86: On MFing autopilot y’all!!! Starting to notice some fox tailing and some purple color coming on some flowers today. And who says you can’t have a 450w light 6 inches from the plants and 70% intensity. Muahahaha… Other than that MFing autopilot!

Day 87: A bit bored this morning so I thought I would snap a pic or two and check the reservoir. But nothing to exciting. Reservoir needed some H2O2 so addded that. Still haven’t bothered checking PH yet. 😬 yesterday afternoon I cut a decent golf ball size outside lower flower to dry and test. 🤷🏻‍♂️🤞🏼. Still no real signs of amber on the trichomes for the upper flowers, at least not on any calyx. Found some on some sugar leaves. So, sort of like the groundhog that means one more week and check again.

P.S. My grove bag with the hygrometer in it has actually been a really steady 59% humidity even moving it from room to room to see if it would still be stable. So far so good.

Day 88: I am kind of behind in weeks I think, but today is day 88 and roughly 5-6ish weeks of flower for River.

She is starting to really foxtail now, since she is so close to the lights, and has been for so long. It is nice to see she is still packing on some weight though through all her hardship. 😬 I’m going to give her another full week of nutrients and then flush I think. I feel once she starts foxtailing to much I’m afraid she will hermie soon. Also still debating on if I should do a partial harvest and let the bottom flowers fill out and finish up. which, unfortunately means no flush this go around for at least the top colas.

Producing some crazy ass buds! Including some fox tailing. Got a few pix cm a while hunting for nanners. 🍆🍆😬

One of the branches I had to HST mid flower it sits way in the back of the tent and is hard to see and inspect.

One of the flower sites I had to too mid flower. This thing is super heavy. Imagine what it would look like if I didn’t have to take two nodes off the top. I have a lot that look like this one.

Day 89: Still on autopilot, but since I try and take a picture or two every morning I’ll post those. Most I will do today potentially is rinse and clean my reservoir and refill it for the hopefully last week of nutrients.

Rivers bouquet (one stem but lots of big buds) might be hard to see my hand at the bottom where they meet.

Day 90-91: Still on autopilot and it is nice. On day 90 (yesterday) I did clean, disinfect and fill my reservoir on last time with about 1300ec advanced nutrient solution with b-52 and overdrive. This will be my last nutrient full of my reservoir. I am going to top off with plain RO water as needed and until it is pure water. That should push me to almost two more weeks until it is nutrient free entirely. Then a full day or so of darkness and harvest time! Not sure if the darkness will have any effect but I might as well test it out myself. As my other plant Clara which is already harvested did not get a flush or any darkness. Will make a good side by side comparison for smoking and all that.

River is really getting some nice purple color to the calyxes which Clara did not have any color at all. It will be interesting to see her in a week. I was also able to have my first sneak peak toke of one of Rivers outside lower buds. Dried it had a weight of 6g. It actually tasted super smooth and fruity and gave a good mellow long lasting high. Can’t wait to try it fully cured.

I haven’t been taking much for pictures the last few days but yesterday I took just a couple of trichome shots just to check. I took them from buds in different locations.

Killer macro shots, man. 👍
Thanks getting better at it! I had purchased a Newel lens kit for my phone for taking pictures of my corals and fish a long while ago. Just found it a few weeks ago and it makes alll the difference. With a zoom or microscope it is almost impossible to get hi res steady shots of trichomes.

Day 92?: I think this is the last day of week 12 or possibly 13 since sprout. Which makes it the end of either week 5 or 6 flower for River. I’ll try and figure that out exactly later. To early for me yet. 🤷🏻‍♂️

I will be adding a couple gallons of plain RO PH’d to 6.0 today as a top off and the start of a slow gradual flush. I have 12 gallons of nutrients to replace with regular water in my reservoir.

River is really fox tailing now. I’m going to open up a vent or two at the bottom of the tent to try and get as much cool air as I can in the tent for this last week or so. But once I have about 14-16 gallons of regular PH’d water added to my res I think I am going to do 24+ or how ever much time over 24 hours I can physically stand of dark and then harvest. Again I could figure out exactly how long that will be by figuring out how much I am feeding a day exactly etc etc but it’s to early for that. 😬

I didn’t spend a lot of time in the tent this morning and only tried to get a few snaps trying to capture some of the purples in her flowers. One under grow light and one with flash… meh…

So did my first 2 gallons of PH’d RO to top off my reservoir. Started at 1270ec, with the top up dropped to 1060ec. I figure I’ll do that every day or so until it is the 8-10ec my RO puts out. Then 1-2 days dark. Or just harvest Saturday since I have all day to do it all. Lmao I’m all over the place. I did take some trichome pics of some of the very hard to reach flowers in the middle of the tent and the back of the tent, and they look pretty ready to me.

This is a good representation of a lot of the mid height older buds on the plant. You can see enough ambers to make me want to harvest in a week or sooner.

These pics are from the upper newer growth, but as you can see they look mostly cloudy and should be more so by Saturday.

And lastly a pic showing some ambers and some cloudies and some clears 😬🤓

Day 93: ooof… that’s it that’s the update… 😬🤷🏻‍♂️

just added another 2 gallons of fresh RO to the reservoir she is at 875ec now.

The flowers are way to heavy for the stalks lol every time I open the tent they flippity floppity all over and fall over… Almost like a bunch of drunk sorority girls… 😬 Nothing new to really report today but is there an ugliest bud contest I think I have a winner.

And… just some random pics from today just for documentation. 🤓

Let's be honest, River has been trying to escape from that tent since day 1.
