SLEX "Sun Grown Organic" By Mopman

16 posts in this topic

Hi Guy's

Well lets start out by saying better late than never lol. My seeds got caught up in the African post offices as usual and GH was kind enough to try another twice for me to send them, they came in a awesome birthday card and the freaky thing is i literally got them on my birthday when i went to check post for other hopeful birthday wish cards.. I did not start the journal earlier because i knew i would not make the cut off date but just wanted to do my duty and post them up anyway's.

Because of that i did not document much like time ect or did not even Ph much until i saw she needed it close to when she started to sex. My water used to be perfect and never had to ph but seems it now drifted up and sits round 8. So did the usual ph with the recommended limits.

I have been feeding her some old bio grow and bloom. Literally the bottles are four years old. Did not have a chance to do her in my usual dwc as i could not set up my tent ect because of family visits this year so i used some soil that they use on the farm i stay for tobacco seeds. Seems to have worked perfectly. I am usually better with documenting but i was late with the journal so i was like Meh....

I topped and fimmed the shit out of her so keep her low because i had to be discreet and wanted to force her to flower quicker to make the journal cut off time but alas. I must have fimmed her about 4 times and topped all the side branches about twice. So she is super low but nice and bushy like the 70's. Responds very well to training and a very hardy plant "like i said i did not do to much" but she responds well to anything. I must say she does have huge trichomes and loads of them so i cant wait to smoke her.

Will be finishing up in a few weeks aswell with a smoke report to.

1. The awesome birthday card they sent

11. These next three were taken with my phone. The trichomes are so big you don't even need a scope. Just a zoom with the phone cam is perfect. They looking mostly cloudy and a few brown and clear. Sooooo excited to smoke her lol.

So i will take some more pics in a week or two for her final flush and them some bud porn and a smoke test. Been a pleasure to grow , super easy so anyone can do it. Hardy and my goodness does she smell so lovely. Cant put my finger on the smell yet but will smoke her with a few friends and get closer to the exact flavor from a few opinions for ya all. 

Moppy :-)

That is a beautiful report.

Respect, man.  I see those pinch-points, wyes and ties.  It takes effort to produce an excellent product.

Enjoy your smoke.

Don't forget to call me again for your next BBQ on the veranda...

Hey Guy's

Took a few shots of her last night. From zooming in with the pics i would say she has a little bit to go "i lost my scope" . Hopefully just a week or two, what you guy's reckon ?

I have been giving her plain water the last two waterings and will carry on with plain water now until the end and @ the usual ph limits.

I have been so tempted to steal the usual "testing bud" lol but only want to try her for the first time after she has properly dried and cured for at least two weeks. She is really smelling lovely now. I'm going with guava and a little lime for the smell for now but it will probably change.

Great Job Mopman

The pistils are all browned now, and it appears that no more are coming.

It's difficult to tell without a magnifying glass or digital microscope, but the Trichomes appear to be all milky.

And the upper fan-leaves have started to yellow. 

These are all signs that harvest is very near, just around the corner.

You could harvest right now, but if you haven't finished a good long flushing regimen, then it is not wrong to delay the harvest.  A good flush is paramount to the quality.  The longer the flush, the sweeter the results.

However, if you have already got in at least a week or two flushing, and if you start to notice that the Trichomes start to AMBER, that's a sure sign to harvest.  Once the Trichomes amber, they cannot gain in THC , but they can begin to weaken in potency.

Your plants are showing the exact perfect time to harvest IMHO (or at least the right time to formulate a cutting plan).

Congratulations Mopman on a beautifully grown plant.  Enjoy the harvest, and let us see some of the pics of the harvest.

Enjoy the smoke.  And this plant looks big enough that you may certainly get enough trim to infuse a batch of Cannabutter from just the trim.

If you or anyone else reading this want to see a recipe with pictures for Cannabutter, then here is a link to my thread in this forum.  The Cannabutter recipe is in the initial steps of the recipe for a "Cannna"-Pineapple-Upside-Down-Cake.

Thanks so much bud. Yeah i was looking closer on the phone a little while ago and they definitely all cloudy and some amber are on the way. So i will wait for it to dry out and then harvest.

Probably in another day or two and then ill take some harvest pics. Thanks for the info and advice and the cannabutter recipe. Will definitely use that some time but for now i have been planning some HBO with the trim and some other bud i have.

Will take harvest pics shortly :pleasantry:

Okay so finally harvested my slex. Well i cant say finally because it actually went pretty quick. Started the grow on the 9th of January so basically 4 months from seed to harvest. I have added a few harvest shots and some macro shots to show the trichomes.

I don't wet trim because i like the plant to dry as slowly as possible. So in about a week and a half ill post some more dry bud shots and will definitely have a taste then and smell report.

Great plant and super easy to grow and seems to like soil and organics.

Moppy :pleasantry:

Thanks again so much guy's 

Finally put her in a big console jar last night after a slight bit of trimming. Wow the smell is crazy and you can really start smelling the cheese now. I have not weighed the bud yet so i will still get to that. For now she is curing.

I did sneak a puff from her last night and i have not been that stoned for a while lol. I have only been smoking some auto's and matchbox weed over the last few months and maybe thats why she hit me like a ton of bricks. Great and uplifting and the wife and i could not stop chatting after a vape :rofl:

Just some last pics of her a bit trimmed and in storage ect. Hope you like

1. Just some bud pics

2. Got some nice finger hash in the end and put that in a rollie aswell. Was wicked

large.74.jpg

3. This was just the leaf trim. Tried some of it for shits and giggles and still worked the shizzle.

4. This is just whats left. Not many branches at all, and one shot of the super cropping affect.

Hope you all enjoyed the journal.

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.
