So ive started another White Lemon pheno selection as ive tested it before which lead to wonderfull results but a early harvest. This time i selected two wonderful phenotypes. The first one is topped one week in the flowering period (as this is my prefered way of topping) and the smell is the hazy one (the ones of you that have grown WL know the smell). The second plant is not topped and the smell is very close to Bubba Kush what surprised me very this time. Wonderful.
The end potsize is 5,4 liters, so expect not the biggest plants.
The day of planting to soil was on 04.09.2011 and i started in soil with 0.6 liter.
The transplant from 0,6 liter to 5,4 liter was at the 09.10.2010 and the plants height was already at 15 to 20 cm.
The first pics ive got are from the 16.10.2011 and show the plants 7 days after the transplant. Sorry that ive got no more pics from the germination because ive not thought to post another WL test. But the results are amazing, so i have to.
The complete time of veg was exactly 25 days.
As light in the veg period i used a Metal Halide with 250 Watt.
In the flowering period iam using a 400 Watt HPS with a Sylvana bulb with 25% blue and 75% red light.
As grow medium iam using Canna PRO soil and it was reused from an older grow and cleaned from old roots.
As nutrients in veg i used a cheap darkgreen colored BIO nutrient solution with NPK 3/1.7/5.0. I used the BIO nutes because of the NPK.
The PH during the veg period was almost at level 6.0 to 6.5.
In the veg period i start with an ec of 1.0 and will not go over an ec of 1.2.
The nutrients for the flowering period is chemical based and also a no name product.
The NPK is 7/5/6 (i think it is not possible to go over 1.4 ec with this solution) and the
PH during flowering period is 6.5 to 6.7.
Edit: Probably the veg times don't match exactly. On the first pictures i used estimated values and it was hard to say in which age the plants are.
The first pics show both plants in the veg period:
This plant is the more hazy one and was topped in flowering period. The pic shows the plant 3 Weeks
after transplanting to 5,4 liters.Generally ive got better results with the topping technic on other strains
but the lemon dont likes it.
This is the Bubba Kush like. So amazing... you could believe me. The pic shows the plant 3 Weeks
after transplanting to 5,4 liters.
Both pictures show the not topped pheno. On the left side you see one leaf of the hazy phenotype.
Top right the not topped and in front the topped one.
(Sorry for the little wired pics but this are last from flowering section.)
First three pics showed the not topped.
Last three the topped pheno type. As you can really see your self now, the one that is toped
has not the biggest buds. But now shes coming more and more. So lets see hows the next results are.
This is a wonderful pheno type and it is worth to be saved after the grow.
Hopefully i'll not loose any of that perfect genes.
The topped variant. Not so dense buds on the 11-29-2011 but a awesome haze like smell.
The next pics have been shot a day later but with better light and are worth to be shown here.
This looks soooo awesome and the smell is so hazy.
Thats it for now. More pics to come soon. Peace
