I used 7 gallon this time after using 5 last time and damn thing looks like a leg lol
Whats up bro, been a minute hope all is growing well! Yeah dude Ive heard too many horror stories of too small pots with soil SO I def wanna give em plenty of room. Are you documenting your current grow somewhere? I'll be sure to give it a follow.

Whats up y'all! Ive been noticing some slight leaf edge curling on some plants, not every leaf, and they are green and healthy, but nonetheless some leaves have curled up edges. I googled and suspect Mites! So i purchased a 100x microscope from the hydro store and i dont see any mites, but i do see things that look like eggs? Here is the girl in question, as well as a photo of the suspected eggs. She is a Kings Juice from Greenhouse seed co around 5ish weeks from seed. So my question: are these mite eggs?

My solution: got some nukem and dr zymes, will be taking them out of the tent and just dunking them into a bucket with the nukem for a few seconds to make sure they get full coverage, also gonna spray my tent with nukem as well. My last run also had similar leaf curling but grew and i harvested just fine, so im wondering if these arent mites at all? If it is mites, then its probably because i go against my rules and let my dog in my room sometimes when he wants a hug. I dont have the heart to shoo him away lmao, but i will have to start following my sop's better in the future.

Just a research update: are these sessile glands? A type of immature trichome? Since they are on the underside of the leaves, maybe thats what these are?

no i have been busy lately. I have a grow journal that i keep. it's just a excel spreadsheet of what day, and what temp, RH%, how much i water and what nutes i give her.

because you actually have the sizing on there i saw this picture and wondered if it could help since it has sizing on the different types on it. seems the bulbous ones are tiny tiny -

Those up turned leaf edges look like they're from heat/light, not bugs. You don't really think you have thousands of mite eggs per square millimeter, do you?

Been having time to think about my whole growing saga lately (lol) and I got a question for y'all: I have been getting really good yields and effects from my herb, but the one thing its lacking is FLAVOR. Now, there is the debate of organic vs salts debatably resulting in more terps, but I've been convinced that one can get good tasting flower in salts AND organics. My herb smells great through flower and smells fire in the jar, grows fine, but the taste is like a 2/10 tho aka doesnt taste anywhere near how it smells.

Since my plants grow super mega fast and strong and yield me lots, Im thinking either the NER of my feeding recipe for GH trio + Koolbloom +humic acids is off causing my plants to horde unnecessary high levels of chlorophyll resulting in tasteless buds OR its Genetics OR its something crazy like Hop Latent Virus.

So what say you all, I dry for 14+ days @ 60/60, jar up. My weed gets me BAKED AF but its the flavors that arent there, everything else is on point: density, yield, effects. But I want to fricken taste the weed, or else I feel like I failed in a way. I am gonna ditch the GH and go with a simpler feeding regime for salts (athena or megacrop or jacks) and am also gonna try out a full organic run. However, it really bugs me that I have grown out several phenos on GH and still have yet to grow anything that TASTES even remotely close to how it smells. Ayuda Por Favor?

This is a topic that we could spend significantly long time and and get nowhere.

the biggest contributor will be strain and much has been lost in genetics over the last couple decades with the push to produce the highest THC levels.

sulphur is inpo part of flavinoids and terps. But you have have the terps and lacking flavor i would haz a guess that it would be genetic related

I hope ☝️ is right (he usually is). I am in the process of switching from organic soil to coco for the first time right now. After my current seed run, I plan to run a side-by-side organic soil versus coco grow with clones of all the same strain. I definitely hope coco produces the same taste!

i thought about switching from soil to coco then realized if i am going to switch from a method that's proven to myself for growing i might as well go big and just make my own large hydro setup. one day, but honestly i kinda like playing in the dirt, something about it.

It’s funny because I was transplanting a few plants today and was thinking I like how clean coco is. Im going to give it a shot. Could be short lived!

Age old argument. Technique or genetics. I think a lot lies in the cure. For me, the longer it cures the better it tastes. I’m getting that taste, running several ppls genetics.
So from that standpoint, you know which side I would take.

Whats up! Thanks for the insight. My first couple runs i over-did the N in flower i think, and didnt get too much smell, but smell after jarring. Last couple grows with different NER and less N in flower has em smelling waaaay stronger. Hoping its genetic related like your sayin, i guess a good way of testing this theory is to get a tried and tested clone from someone, like Trustfall or another good cloner.

So you would'nt think HLV? I guess the stunting from HLV is usually apparent in more than just lack of flavor im assuming.

Sounds like we need an offical Soil vs Coco Thread. I am interested in organics cuz of the health and of course if it solves this flavor mystery I'll be converted lol. I will be doing a side by side organic vs coco grow next time too, is there a thread on that? Maybe we should start one :D
