Very cool garden! And yes I think we have the same pheno going...I have one at almost 4 weeks flower and she's already got twice the trichomes the first round had at the same time, so that's a good sign!

So far doubling the grow nutes this late in flower has worked I think. (Knock on wood.)

I will back off a little now..as I don't want to go overboard. I topped the seedlings, but because there was hardly any stretch I decided to let the clones go untopped and untrained. They are putting on some big ole top colas this time. I will get some pictures next time I'm down there. They sure are pretty!

Yes!! That’s great news! And yeah, please post some pics. Doubling up nutes, eh? I never thought I’d see the day. What nutes are you using Ron?
My second wave of THC Bombs are in autopots so I’m hoping it will help allow the plant easier access to more nitrogen and macro nutes. I’m noticing the new growth is slightly yellow but not anywhere near what I experienced the first run.

Hey Good morning! What a beautiful day the Lord has made...I think I will rejoice and be glad in it!

Yeah the first round with seedling I went super light with the grow nutes...(I use Fox Farm Grow Big for veg...) was using 5ml per gallon, and all was well until about the 2-3 week of flower and they both went yellow. I tried to adjust but it was to late I fear.

This time with the clones I started them off with 5ml per gallon Grow big and PHed water and when I started giving them the bloom nutes I increased to 10 ml a gallon. Seems to have worked as its now day 27 and they are almost too green...lol

Putting out trichomes on the large fan leaves and even stems...I love to see that! I tried to get a picture but it doesn't really do it justice. As you can see the are still pretty green and the tips of the leaves are just staring to show a little nute burn...time to back off. This is the shorter bushier pheno but almost the same as the other...

Thc Bomb Pheno #1 day 27 flower.
Amen brother! Just as God created us, He gave us the gift of creation in his image. Create just as you were created to create, brother. This is our God given right and privilege. If our passions lay in cannabis cultivation, it’s because he wrote that on our hearts and just as He created us, we are created to create life, art, love, peace, joy and happiness in an expression of our Creator.

Your garden is BOMB! No pun intended Ron. Lol. Those colas are FIRE! I can only hope my second round looks that good!
Yesterday was a tough day for me. I found out that the one sunset sherbet that went hermie, pollinated one of my second round bombs in the autopot 😩. It’s ok tho. Live and learn. She got chopped😔.
I’m fairly certain I figured out what may have triggered the stress on the sherbets. I discovered that my flower chamber is dropping to 58-60*F at night! Way too cold! I have set up a heat source to mitigate the cold during the dark photoperiod. Wish I knew earlier. I guess this is how we learn.
Thanks for keeping this thread updated bro. I really enjoy reading your entries. Be blessed bro. Keep fighting the good fight and remember bro, we have nothing to fear. Fear not!
Now keep posting those pics cause they give me hope! Lol.

Thank you for the kind and uplifting words brother! My garden doubles as my prayer closet. I spend lots of time down there with our Lord! My wife will say, "Who was you talking to down there?" "Jesus or the plants?" "Both", I say...

Sorry to hear you had some problems with hermies, they really suck, I've had my share... Now I'm like you I watch the plants like a hawk first sign and they die. I got no time for a boat load of seeds. Yes 58F-60F is cold for optimum growth, glad you got that figured out and fixed.
If she won’t listen to you, why would she listen to us? Oh wait... Stupid question. 😂😂😂🤣🤣
I simply explained to her...more light equals more buds...she gets it. I'm ordering a second flower light soon. God blessed me with a cool stoner chick! lol

Hey @DankNugz420! Thank you for the compliment. This is my passion, I hope it comes through. Oh man 5 kitties huh! lol I have 3 and have a hell of a time keeping the hair down. I filter all the intake air into the grow, keep my fans clean, sweep, and vacuum regularly and still there's hair. I try not to let the cats into the garden, but as you know they do what the heck they want. Now I just tell those I gift flower not to be surprised if they find a cat hair, be surprised if you DONT find a cat hair! lol Like you said its worth it...a kitties love is priceless!

Made of Honor Day 49 flower...haven't checked the trichs yet but I will start next week and they will probably get the chop right around day 56-60. They really did flower quick just like the breeder said and have a huge amount of sticky, stinky resin on them. Pheno One stretched less, has a purple hue and has smaller skunkier buds. Pheno two stretched more, has way more trichs, fatter buds, and has a fruity diesel smell.

Hey What's good! Not much to report, the garden is growing well and I would say its almost harvest time for the first four plants. I checked the trichomes tonight and I'm seeing some clear and mostly cloudy. Not really any amber yet but that's ok.

I almost have to take these plants at 8 weeks just because of space. Both Made of Honor phenos are almost ready, but the Thc Bombs are still at least a couple weeks from being truly mature. They still must die. I'm just gonna squish most of it and I don't mind if its a little... racey.

What a pain in the butt Thc Bomb has been compared to Made of Honor using the same techniques. I will probably discontinue Thc Bomb after I flower the four plants I have in veg..they just don't agree with me and my style of growing. I've made several adjustments to her but she is just to finicky for me.

Better be some good smoke or I'm done. Even though I'm taking these early I will let the clones go all the way to see her full potential before I make my final decision. So far its not looking good for her...

Thc Bomb #1 and #2 Day 51 flower...Not so pretty but hey it is what it is.

Haha... What's good all you beautiful people! Smoke em if you got em cuz its goin down!

Spent some time down in the flower room this morning and everything is looking....fire! I've decided to harvest the first two Made of Honor phenos and the two Thc Bomb phenos tomorrow. Day 55 flower.

The Thc Bomb are way early and still has some white pistils and clear trichs but my damn veg room is getting so over crowded I need the space over in flower like now. The early Thc Bomb will get squished into rosin and truthfully I hope its nice and up racey buzz. I like that type of high from my dabs so I don't knock my self out dabbing all day. I'll keep ya posted as to how it all turns out.

I took some pictures of Made of Honor just because she's so...photogenic. These will be the last of these particular plants as they will be trimmed and hung in the morn. She really did flower quick and is pretty much ripe, could of went maybe another week, but again I need the space.

So next comes the trim...yucky! Trimming is my least favorite part of the whole cycle. The repetition... blah. Good thing my wife actually likes trimming and is very good at it. If not I would have to hire it out...

Nice work brother. Those plants look delicious. Too bad THC Bomb doesn’t work well with your growing style. I was looking forward to mastering the bombs with you, but I totally get it brother. There will be more genetics to grow.
Ps. I also chopped one of my bombs today too.

Very nice my brother! Nice plant. From the looks of it yours will yield a little more than mine. Notice I didn't take many pictures of them because they are ugly as shit...lol But I will take some pictures tomorrow after the chop. They are both pretty frosty and should make some good wax. (Fingers crossed.) I will save the prettiest flowers for my wife, and squish the rest for myself.

Also I haven't completely made up my mind yet about discontinuing the Bombs. One more run and a smoke report then ill decided for sure. If I don't keep them going now they will be the best I've ever smoked. (Law of Riley.) I also have 4 more feminized seeds for in the future when I have more time and space to mess with their finicky butts. I still have four clones in veg that I wont have space to flower for another few weeks. I just don't think I'll take clones after that. We shall see.

How about yours, how does it smell? Looks incredible! looking forward to a smoke and yield report. Thank you for sharing my green thumbed brother!

Oh wow...harvest was a biatch. We trimmed from 2:00 p.m till 10:00 p.m...lol Straight 8. Thank God I have such an awesome wife! She was a champ as always and more than pulled her weight in the trimming department. Im so blessed to have such a great partner.

So after trimming the Thc Bombs, I was pretty impressed with both phenos. Nice bud structure and looks like its gonna be a nice yield for such little bushy plants. Covered in piney, citrusy smelling trichomes. Next run I will let them go another two weeks and see their full potential.

Now I have space in the flower area to put four plants from veg. I put four Made of Honor #1's over there. No I have four plants due to harvest in 4-5 weeks, four plants due in 6-8 weeks and four that will be ready in 8-10 weeks. I love the stagger.

Took four more clones of Made of Honor #2 for the next run. I also have four clones of the THC Bomb still in veg that will go to flower next.

So I didn't post many pictures of THC Bomb because she really was ugly and sick the whole grow, but man did she put on some nice colas. Both phenos.

So funny because you can kinda tell from the pictures, but I think Thc Bomb is gonna yield more than the Made of Honor...Maybe I will keep them? We will see after it dries and cures. The smoke report will make my final decision. I have it all hanging now and will take some pictures of the buds once they are dry...

Ah dude! This made my morning! Excellent work! Those yields are suggesting that whatever you’re doing is working just fine.
Those THC Bombs are finicky at times but do they ever pack on the weight! And from what I’ve smoked (selective harvesting), it really is bomb!! Keep in mind the selective harvests aren’t dried and cured properly. I force dry them in a room with 29% RH just so I can sample the flower. Hands down Ron, THC bomb has been some of the strongest, tastiest bud I’ve smoked since the early 2000’s. I hope your experience is similar. I can’t wait to sample the properly dried and cured flower 🤤
My hat goes off to you and your wife. Nice work! Both of you. 👍🏻

Hey, What's good! Nothing much to do in the garden this morning. Looking real nice and everything seems to be flourishing. In the veg room under the BP3000 I have the four Thc Bomb clones. Under the T5 I have four Made of Honor clones That I just took in the bubbler and four that are just getting roots.

The flower room is looking real nice too. Everything is doing really well except one finicky ass Thc Bombs..lol She is starting to yellow in the third week of flower...sigh... I'm really starting to realize @DiFabz was right when he said they need more cal mag, that will be my next step. 4ml per gallon Cal Mag Plus every other feeding for that pheno...(pheno #1) See if that helps.

Hey @DiFabz! Haha so good to hear your smoke report. I really like the strong stuff!lol Yeah now that I see that although they were pretty sick they still packed it on, I will for sure keep an open mind...

I dry in a small room under my basement stairs. Nice and dark, cool, and like 30% RH...Takes like a 7-14 days to dry down there and the flower usually turns out pretty nice. I know its a little dry but it stays so cool down there (LIke 57F.) that it works out.

Hey man thank you for the compliments and kind words. Your post always cheer me up! I told my wife you gave her a "hats off", she says thanx as well. Please keep posting and I am also always following what's going on over in your journal. Thanx again brother ttyl. -Ron
