May as well do a grow diary since there's not much else going on at the moment.

These are Blueberry Muffin #10 crossed/bred by Humboldt seed company.
Razzleberry x Purple Panty Dropper x Blueberry.
2017 Emerald Cup winner.

The clones were grown by DarkHeart Nursery and distributed by Harborside dispensary in Oakland.
I am just getting back into growing for something productive to do, so I am only growing 2 at the moment.
This is under a new Spider Farmer SE5000 LED (480W)
Lights on 24/7

This is a soil grow in 7 gal fabric pots using FoxFarms Happy Frog.
Using RO water that I get from my local Walmart for 39 cents a gallon
All watering/feedings are PH'd to ~6.3 - 6.5 using Up/Down

Nutrients are Mission Organic nutes
MykosWP
Generic fish/kelp fert
CalMag+
MammothP
Earthworm castings
.....and for (organic) pest control if needed:
Capt Jack's Deadbug (Foliar spray)
SNS 209 (Systemic)
Monterey Garden Insect Spray RTU - in case of caterpillars in flowering

Nutes
Soil


Fresh from the dispensary and put into Solo cups for about a week...

And here is week 3 of veg freshly put into 7 gal fabric pots...

Week 5 of veg...

And currently at week 6 of veg...

And my lighting setup is a bit funky. The first 2 weeks of their veg was only under the T3 lights as I didn't have the Spider Farmer yet. When I got the Spider Farmer, I put it in place and removed the T3 fixture altogether. I had the Spider Farmer at about 24" and only at 40% power. The plants hated it and began to droop pretty quickly. Temps/humidity were not the issue. It never went over 77F and humidity is always between 45 -55%. So I raised the Spider Farmer up to 36" but the plants remained unhappy. I then put the T3's back in place underneath the Spider Farmer as seen in the below pic and they responded quickly and perked right back up. So, this is how it stays until I go into flower. Then the T3's go away and the plants are just going to have to deal with the Spider Farmer. Different hormones kicking in then, so maybe they won't be such spoiled princesses.

cool setup. What is the PVC for?
So that is a 5½" feet square with the PVC frame. I built that during my first grow several years ago and it works very well for placing a 5' trellis net for scrog using zipties at each corner. I can then slide the net up/down with ease as needed, or add additional net layers.

I also have a roll of Reflectix insulation that I can cut and hang panels into place for light reflection, using the same method as above with the zipties. But since I am only growing 2 plants this go around, there's no crowding so I think I may forgo the Reflectix.

Here's a pic of how I used that PVC frame. My very first ever grow. White Widow.

Nice work!

I love me some white widow. I've got a thread here somewhere were we did some UVB testing on WW, and man did that stuff turn out complex. Had both THCv and CBG in it. No CBD. But off the charts THC. No, that's a lie, it was on the charts lol. It has become the base genetics for the extractions we do because it is so complex when given a chance.

Thanks for the comments. Yeah, White Widow is a great strain to start out with. It is pretty forgiving for making mistakes... and that being my first grow, I made plenty. lol.

Almost that entire harvest I turned into hash using the dry ice method. I had a lot of fun doing that.
I rarely smoke, so I end up giving it all away. I truly just like growing.

In fact, I still have some left from my first grow. Haha. This is ummm... I guess 6 years old.
I actually had a blast making these. I used a 4 inch long piece of that PVC. A nickel fits inside that PVC perfectly.
So, a nickel on the bottom, pour in the kief, put another nickel on top and pound it down with a punch and hammer to tightly compact it.
Plus it leaves a pretty neat little impression of the features from the nickel, but it has worn off on this one after 6 years.

Heading in to week 7 of Veg. This will be the last veg week, then flip to flower Apr 17th.
I don't expect a big stretch on these as they are Indica leaning, as far as I understand.
They are currently at 15" tall.

They are looking nice and healthy. A little bit of serrated edge curl here and there, but I don't think that is a problem, or an indicator of a serious problem.

This is the last month's worth of data for Temp and RH
They would be happier with a little warmer in the mornings, but they'll be OK.
Damn pillow princesses.

Just some pics and an update for 4/20... Got my med card renewed today. Good day for it.

Everything seems to be going along fine with the grow.
I've added in a second oscillating fan and have one pointed down low towards the base of the pots and the other on the opposite side of the room pointed above the canopy.
I also added in a wi-fi controllable receptacle so I can turn on/off electrical components as I wish without entering the room. It's a 3-outlet receptacle.
I also covered up some more of the infrared lights on the Dlink camera. Now there's only like 5 visible. I want it to cut down on the excessive contrast.

I'm at day 4 of flower.

And a closeup ... day 4 of flower... are trichomes really starting to show? Maybe it is just trichome placeholders.

Day 12 / 13 of flower. Plants are healthy.
A few of the old fan leaves are showing just the smallest amount of nute burn on the tips, but only like 4 or 5 leaves out of the entirety.
Similarly, just a few with tips that are slightly turning up or down.
Think I will ease up on the nutes and just give a good watering in a few days or so.

Flowers are just now starting to show signs of formation. Beautiful thing indeed.
I am starting to catch fleeting scents of them in the house. Love the smell !

Nice looking plants, healthy and growing. Not sure what pheno I had but it stunk like jiffy muffins, and got a super pretty purple when I let it go an extra week or more. Not the biggest yielder but the quality is there, looking forward to seeing more of the #10!

Good work, keep it up!

Thanks for commenting!

Yeah, this is not going to be a huge yield either, but I knew that going into it.
This particular strain is a rather squat plant.
Looking forward to some frosty buds with purple highlights though.

It definitely was a shorter, squatter plant than others I've done, but was actually a pretty easy grow. Didn't really seem as prone to nutrient issues as other genetics. The smell is intense, I just smoked my last two colas I've had stashed away since December and the flavor is awesome, kind of stuff you can still taste it after you're done smoking. I would do it again for sure!

Day 20 of flower. Anxiously awaiting the march of the trichomes.
Happy Cinco De Mayo!

On the first pic I turned down the brightness in Paintshop for contrast.

Looking great. I grow outdoors and have included a blueberry muffin in my grows the last 5 years. I give away most of my harvest and blueberry muffin always gets the most compliments! I've got two BBM clones going currently to put outside in a couple of weeks.
