Looking nice (and tight) in there @ShaggyGrower, few more weeks yet though and make sure you have a very close eye on the RH. 

I see a nice harvest forthcoming, great stuff.

 

Will do @I'm Sal. I have the dehumidifier at the ready just in case. Fingers crossed!

A bit of researching and yes, that's a male sex organ.  One does not mean the whole plant has hermied apparently.  Can't do much about it now, half way through flowering with no spare tents/space, so I've cut it out, prowled around for a bit looking for others but seeing none, and I'll be keeping and even closer beady eye on them from now on!

And it was all going so well ....

Hello Shaggy,

 

This is quite common to see a banana or two in the heads but no worries to have ;-)

 

Have a nice grow dude

yep hermie, but it quite possible a non viable male flower, some times you get it from to much heat or some randon stress,

yes the plant is prone, some are more, if it in the singular male flower  keep an eye on it, even pull it

 

if you plan to grow again from cutting, take note of condtion and monitor in the next grow

Thanks @OG.Naj and @9DRAGONS,

Thanks for the reassurance.  It's my first banana and caused panic.

 

Anyhoo, big second defoliation of the remaining fan leafs yesterday, and now there is lots of light getting down to bud sites.

It's all very sparkly in there, but I would like the buds to get bigger (obviously -lol).

 

I make it 4-5 weeks to go (Day 37 of flowering), so take off the last two weeks where I'll be flushing, so I have three feedings left (about once a week) and perhaps only two as they are drinking more slowly.

 

Now, I've ran out of Bloom nutes.  I have Grow nutes (6-2-4) and PK (9 phosphorous, 18 potassium, 5.1 Sulphur) and Potassium Silicate (6%).  Am thinking of giving a 25% Grow (for a little N) 50% PK and 25% PS  mix in an EC 1.2 solution.  Do you guys have any thoughts/advice?

SS coming out of what I think was a Cal deficiency & lockout which resulted in very slow growth.  (I suspect the others to a lesser degree as well).  I suspect when I was flushing a lot, I flushed out all the calcium by accident when trying to get the ppm run off lower.  I was using rain water and forgot about the cal in tap water.

Hope you can make out the crispy ends then brownish band then green where the leaf is recovering (looks like banding).

Anyhoo, they're all a-growing again in the bud area, so back on track. Wonder if this means harvest date is delayed.  Atm I think it does. Trichomes mostly clear with some cloudy which is a surprise as I thought having not budged for a while they'd have started to turn already.  

Below is DD

@ShaggyGrower What lens do you use for the pics? Do you zoom or it is the original size?

I use my Finepix HS20EXR for pics mostly, sometimes my phone, and the trichome pic was the USB endoscope.

 

I use the zoom as well as take in 8Mb pics which I can then crop while still  keeping good resolution. Sometimes by hand, sometimes with the tripod & shutter cable with fans turned off.

I try to post with as much resolution as the uploader can handle, so readers can click the 'full size' button and really see in detail.

That help?

Jacky White and Dutch Dragon are both 75% Sativa.
Nebula 60% Sativa.

Ice Cream 60% Indica.

Sensi Star 90% Indica.

JW is 30cm taller than the rest.  The ONLY difference between Jacky White and the rest was "JW has joined DD & Nebula in big 46 litre pots.  I ran out of Coco Pro and Tropic Bat Mix so used some Coco Pro and some Micacle Gro (& Perlite).".  So, Miracle Grow causes stretching?  I'm leaning that way. If so, something handy to know for usually short bushy plants, to give them a little height maybe. Might stick some in one of the WR for a test ;-).

So I begin the final two weeks stage. Wet weight is ~21kg and dry ~ 11kg, so I'm going to feed an EC of 1.0 made up of 0.250 of rain run off water with a little added calmag, and EC0.75 of Shogun Dragon Force [1] and add a days worth of slurpings (~1.3/0.6l depending on plant) for 5 days.

 

Notes:

08/0/2018 - Day 52 of flowering. Just indoor waterbutt water (EC 0.252) and Dragon force to bring it up to EC 1.0 (500ppm)
DD 13.8kg  2.4l  6.32ph  488ppm  23.2c  0ml-12%HP in,  ph  ppm  c l out  16.2kg wet   - OK
Nebula 13.9kg  1.9l  6.32ph  488ppm  23.2c  0ml-12%HP in,  ph  ppm  c l out  15.8kg wet   - OK
JW 14.1kg  2.1l  6.32ph  488ppm  23.2c  0ml-12%HP in,  ph  ppm  c l out  16.2kg wet   - OK
IC 15.2kg  l  ph  ppm  c  ml-12%HP in,  ph  ppm  c l out  15.2kg wet   - OK
SS 13.8kg  1l  6.32ph  488ppm  23.2c  0ml-12%HP in,  ph  ppm  c l out  14.8kg wet   - OK

10/02/2018 Last day Dragon Force for Nebula & DD
DD 12.6kg  1.4l  6.25ph  2480ppm  24.2c  ml-12%HP in,  ph  ppm  c l out  14.0kg wet   - OK Day 5 of Dragon
Nebula 13.4kg  0.6l  6.25ph  2480ppm  24.2c  ml-12%HP in,  ph  ppm  c l out  14.0kg wet   - OK Day 5 of Dragon
JW 13.9kg  1.1l  6.25ph  2480ppm  24.2c  ml-12%HP in,  ph  ppm  c l out  15.0kg wet   - OK Day 3 of Dragon
IC 13.4kg  0.6l  6.25ph  2480ppm  24.2c  ml-12%HP in,  ph  ppm  c l out  14.0kg wet   - OK Day 0 of Dragon
SS 12.7kg  1.2l  6.25ph  2480ppm  24.2c  ml-12%HP in,  ph  ppm  c l out  13.7kg wet   - OK Day 1 of Dragon
M 3.7kg (3.6kg is base dry weight just out of the bag, so perhaps 3.5kg is realy dry weight)
3 3.7kg (3.6kg is base dry weight)
5 800g

It's day 5 of 5 for the use of Dragon Force with DD & Nebula.  When they get very dry (10-11kg, ~2-3 days), I shall be leaching/flushing with ~30l for each pot (a pot holds ~ 10l of liquid, so a x3 flush). When dry again, it's just 125ppm of rain water with a  little calmag.  Still deciding whether to do anything special at the end such as cold/ice water mega flushes, 48 hours of darkness, etc.

Not feeding/watering as I used to, ie, to get run off. Just giving a litre or so from near the bottom of the weigh range so they're pretty dry when they receive the ~EC1.0 of nutes and slurp them up (hopefully).

 

The nearer I get to harvest, well, deciding when it's two weeks to go, the more nervous I get - not wanting to harvest too early.

 

Happy Growing!

Harvested a stem of Ice Cream and did a light wet trim (yes @slimjim, much easier than when dry). IC has three pairs of side shoots, all the others have four.  This is one of the stems from the bottom pair.

34.55g wet with stalk, trimmed (not including plastic tray obviously). Will be interesting to see what the buds vs stalks weigh dried:

Bud shot (Gave it a squeeze and there was VERY LITTLE GIVE.  I'm thinking that is a good thing.  My last grow was a little airy.  These are like rocks, and I get where the name 'nugget' came from now.:

Decided to introduce DD & Nebula (and JW) to lollypopping.  I've taken of their cotyledons (crispy anyway), their first single leaf & side shoot, and their first three leaf. 

 

The lowest item left on them are side shoots (which are going great) that went with the removed three-leaf.  I've taken the first three-fingered leaves off the side shoots as well. 

 

I've LST'd those side shoots as well on DD & Nebula.  Early I know to trim, but they seem mega healthy so I figure they can take it.

About us

Strain Hunters is a series of documentaries aimed at informing the general public about the quest for the preservation of the cannabis plant in the form of particularly vulnerable landraces originating in the poorest areas of the planet.

Cannabis, one of the most ancient plants known to man, used in every civilisation all over the world for medicinal and recreational purposes, is facing a very real threat of extinction. One day these plants could be helpful in developing better medications for the sick and the suffering. We feel it is our duty to preserve as many cannabis landraces in our genetic database, and by breeding them into other well-studied medicinal strains for the sole purpose of scientific research.
