Day 21 of Flower, defoliated all of the plants and rearranged them as well as the lights. Everything is between 1000-1500 PPFD.

Also took two clones off of each of my Mother plants. Two M.A.C. and two Flintstones. One of each I dipped in Clonex rooting gel and the Root Riot cubes were soaked in a 5.8 pH Clonex solution. One of each I just used 6.0 pH water.

Day 22 of Flower, fed the Colombian Miracle plants 3000 mL each of a 6.2 pH solution of Iguana Juice Bloom @ 4 mL/L, Big Bud @ 2 mL/L, Nirvana @ 2 mL/L, Ancient Earth @ 2 mL/L, Sensizym Organic @ 2 mL/L, Big Mike's OG Tea @ 2 mL/L, Bud Candy @ 2 mL/L, Grandma Enggy's F-1 @ 2.5 mL/L. Fed the 5 gal plants 5000 mL of the same solution. The plants are responding well to the major defoliation. It is pretty crazy to see the variation in the different plants. First time doing a phenohunt and it's not gonna be easy picking a winner out of the 10 females.

I also cleaned up the Colombian Miracle clones and fed them 250 mL each of a 6.3 pH solution of Orca @ 2 mL/4L. They did not need the nutrients I fed them last time. They'll be fine after a few days.

I got plenty of stakes. I decided not to trellis them this grow. We'll see how that turns out...

I started watching your grow a while back then got busy with my own thing. You have got it going on in here man. My head started spinning around when I saw all those bottles but man, your plants look fabulous.

I don't schwazz to hard at all anymore, I've had more than one throw me some seeds so I've been trying to go a little easier. My 21 days is this weekend, I will be doing a "moderate schwazz" lol. Honestly I won't have to do much as the leaf to bud ratio is fairly low on this grow and right where I like it. 🙂

I've not run a trellis yet and opted not to for my latest grow but I may look into getting a few bamboo stakes, I also realize If I was going to do either I should have done so earlier.

Keep up the good work in here!

The Colombian Miracle clones are already looking better.

I decided to spray everything in the 10×10 tent with a 20 mL/32 oz solution of GrowSafe. I noticed a little bit of powdery mildew during the defoliation the other day. Decided to spray them before they get too bushy again.

Day 24 of Flower, watered the Colombian Miracle plants with 3500 mL of a 6.2 pH solution of Orca @ 2.5 mL/4L and the 5 gal plants got 6000 mL each of the same solution. Yesterday was the first day I started seeing any pistils starting to turn color.

I'm really happy with how things are growing. Optimal environment, optimal light, I'm pushing nutes, and feeding them properly with the right amount of solution/water and letting them dry back. Just have the Pro CO2 bucket in there that I don't think is doing a whole lot. I bought it last year because it's inexpensive compared to full CO2 systems and thought it might work better than mushroom bags for a little bit extra money. I think that's what's in the bucket, fungi producing CO2, not 100% sure on that one. Unfortunately I can't find my CO2 meter that got lost in the move. Might have to order another one just to put a number to it. I'm a believer in the schwazz too, that deserves credit here for pushing bud growth earlier.

A lot of credit goes to the genetics of these plants. Colombian Miracle is a special cross from one of the best breeders out there. I love what Capulator has been able to do over time. M.A.C. is my favorite strain I've ever tried and the Colombian Miracle strain is the Miracle side of Miracle Alien Cookies (Miracle 15) crossed to the Colombian landrace strain he has that he claims he got straight from Colombia. No reason for me not to believe that. They smell like over ripe mangoes just like he said they would. I'm looking for the best 9-10 week finisher that provides the best Sativa feeling. I think that will ultimately make the decision a bit easier because at this point it's hard for me to say there's a clear winner. He had some plants finish closer to 12 weeks from the description he gave. It was super easy to pick the king in the room, much tougher picking the queen.

The Flintstones strain is a cross between work from Alien Genetics and B.O.G., you can't go wrong there. Huge fan of Alien Genetics work and B.O.G. is also a legend. F.P.O.G from Alien crossed to the Sour Bubble BX3 from B.O.G. Genetics always play a huge role and how well plants will grow.

I thought I saw that CO2 bucket in a pic, wonder if its all the open space in your basement contributing as well. (going from pics you posted earlier)

I went to your original link you posted, same as this one to check out the strains. As soon as I see Regs & those prices I'm out usually as fast as the mouse can get to the X. It's just the way I am, I'll give you 60 bucks for 3 Fems, but I won't pay 200 for Reg seeds. I'll leave that to those who will and can afford those prices.

That said I'm going to try a grow with some Dragonsflame Genetics Regs that he sent me to replace some duds from last year. Just dropped seeds for this yesterday.

Keep up the nice job man, I'll be admiring those ladies from here!

I have heard of both the other breeders, I gather that's the BOG as in Bogglegum? Ive had that and it was top shelf a couple years ago. FPOG is on my list at some point as well.

Great point with the big open basement. Dragonsflames looks like he's got some excellent genetics from the pics I've seen on the forum, honestly never heard of that breeder before joining the forum. You got some other excellent strains I'm interested in seeing how they turn out. And yes, B.O.G. is the breeder of Bogglegum.

We lost power this afternoon for about an hour and a half, really nasty storm all day here in Maine, heavy rain and 25+ mph winds. The plants should be fine.

Yesterday was day 28 of Flower. Gave the Colombian Miracle plants 3000 mL of a 6.3 pH solution of Orca @ 2.5 mL/4 L. Gave the 5 gal plants 5000 mL of the same solution. Everything is growing really well except my two 5 gal plants. If I get anything decent off of them I'd be happy.

Sadly Bog has died not long ago, I'd love to run some of his strains or cultivars,Cheers SS

Yes the original breeder of Bubblegum Kush did pass away not that long ago, but his legacy lives on. I'm very fortunate to have acquired a cut of the Flintstones strain. Wait til you see how frosty they get. Still another solid 4 weeks of trichome production to go.

Week 5 Day 1 of Flower, the plants thrived through the stretch phase, time for the flowers to bulk up, and increase terpene production. Fed the 10 gal plants 8000 mL each of a 6.3 pH solution of Iguana Juice Bloom @ 4 mL/L, Big Bud @ 2 mL/L, Nirvana @ 2 mL/L, Ancient Earth @ 2 mL/L, Sensizym Organic @ 2 mL/L, Big Mike's OG Tea @ 2 mL/L, Bud Candy @ 2 mL/L, Grandma Enggy's F-1 @ 2.5 mL/L. The Flintstones and M.A.C. flowers.

Also fed the Colombian Miracle clones 250 mL each of a 6.3 pH solution of Wholly Mackerel @ 15 mL/4 L, Kelp Me Kelp You @ 10 mL/4 L, Ancient Earth @ 2 mL/L, Grandma Enggy's F-1 @ 2.5 mL/L, Sensi Cal Mag Xtra @ 2 mL/L, Hygrozyme @ 2.5 mL/L. The Mother plants got 2000 mL each of the same solution. Those plants starting going the other way on me, hopefully this shot of nutes will help.

Gotta love the names that Advance Nutes comes up with, had to go look if there was a Wholly Cow or Wholly Sheet lol....

Maybe you mentioned it I don't know, what was the grow medium & nutes that you worked with at the grow op just out of curiosity? Obviously they wouldn't be working with these nutes due to amount of inputs & cost factor.
