Greetings Fellow Cultivators!
I have just finished up my first successful grow here at the Farm and am moving on the the next, all important medicinal cannabis cancer miracle cure, which I am dedicating to one of my favorite bands, Black Sabbath.

Those old enough might have recognized I took my Farm handle from a very cool Black Sabbath song called Sweet Leaf which just so happens to be about our beloved Cannabis flower. One of my new friends here at the Farm had named his plants, so I decided to take a page out of @AmokNewb book and name these plants this time around. Let me introduce you (starting back left, moving clockwise) to Geezer Butler, Bill Ward, Tony Iommi, and last but not least, Ozzy.

Geezer, Bill, and Tony are all G-13 strain and Ozzy is a strain by Sannie Seeds called MotherLode that I got from @Poekie. I started out with two of each, but only one of the two MotherLode seeds I had sprouted after a week so I quickly got another G-13 seed in the soil which came up about 3 days later and is about a week behind the others.

A few specifics about this grow.

Stonington Blend Soil by Coast of Maine - 5 gal fabric pots
3x3 tent with MarsHydro TSW 2000
Distilled water with homemade cal/mag added
Nutrients-
Roots Organics Terp Tea nutrients which includes Grow, Bloom, Bloom Booster, Microbe Charge microbial supplement
Real Growers Recharge Microbial supplement
Organic Fish Bone Meal

These seeds went in the soil on the 11th of August, although it could have been the 18th. I didn't write it down and I have been pretty loopy for the past several weeks since starting the ROS treatments. I am hoping to keep better track of this grow now that I started a thread for it! I am using the same soil from the last grow but will be feeding with the Terp Tea Grow and the microbe boosters during veg and then a transition to the bloom nutrients once I flip to flower since this soil is most likely very depleted of nutrients at this point. They started out in 4" peat pots and I transplanted them into the 1/2 gal pots already, and they will eventually go in 5 gal fabric pots for the rest of the grow.

Thanks bro, but I am having a bit of a hard time seeing my rock legends identifying as Female so I may rename them. 🀣

So I have been absent from the Farm except for looking occasionally at some threads I have been following. I've sorta checked out while I am on this cannabis cancer therapy. The RSO therapy is a lot more intense than I had imagined with unanticipated side effects. I have also started a new part time job and have been very tired ALL THE TIME. That is good because I know my body is healing and the rest is the best thing in the world for me right now. In some ways, I am glad to be working; others, not so much.

The good news is I have travelled to another legal state where the best of friends hooked me up with the remainder of flower that I needed to finish out my cancer treatment! I simply cannot afford $300 an ounce at the dispensaries here in my home state. I got 10 ounces off my first grow (not enough, need about a pound), and God has provided in abundance leaving me with about 2 lbs of potent flower, and I found out who my REAL friends are. Praise God.

So as far as this update, these plants have suffered a bit because of the above, and as well, I am still a novice grower with much experience to be gained! I am reusing the soil from the last grow and I did not amend it. My inexperience showing itself perhaps, but it is what it is. I did feed with some organic fertilizer that I had from Walts Organics, which I did mix in about 1/4 cup in each 1/2 gallon pot that I transplanted them into from the 4" peat pots. I also gave them about 1/4 cup of fishbone meal. Then when I moved them to the 5 gallon fabric pots, I again fed with the Walts Organics fertilizer 1/2 cup each and another 1/4 cup of fishbone meal. Alongside the Walts Organics fertilizer, I have also been mixing in the Terp Tea Grow, Bloom, and the Recharge in with cal/mag distilled water. Last feeding, I had noticed quite a bit of deficiencies and so top dressed with Terp Tea Grow and bloom at the rate of 1 TBS per gallon of potting soil, and mixed the same nutes with the water at the rate of 1 tsp per gallon. From what I can tell, the new growth is showing that I have corrected the deficiencies fairly well and they seem to be doing better.

As far as growth, they are all quite robust, with the Mother Lode strain being quite aggressive. I had neglected them to the point where Mother Lode started getting super tall. She also had more nutrient problems than the G-13's. I have never done a lot of LST, but had to here because I thought I would run out of tent if I let her keep going. I crushed the two tallest stems and bent them over and installed my netting trellis. The canopy is much better now, although, it could be better. I also topped all 4 plants but this time I only topped each plant one time.

I have been giving bloom nutrients leading up to yesterday when I flipped to 12/12 light schedule. These were all planted from feminized seeds and they are already showing some pistils before I flipped. I figured they were ready! I have done some light defoliation on the lower 1/3 of the plants as well as cut out most of the damaged fan leaves.

This grow has suffered because I cannot keep up on it as well but hopefully, this robust plant will make up for my lack of due diligence and give me a good harvest in spite of myself.
