  1. thanks Dust! i haven't fed the girls anything but compost tea or worm juice their entire lives. and they haven't even had any tea for about 4wks now...only water. so yea, they're pretty well flushed. yea, the hawaiian definitely has a few weeks left in her. initially i was under the impression she'd have a similar 9 - 11 wk flower time as the others, but apparently this one is a little shy! of the other 3, i'll most likely harvest yummy this week/end. her leaves are turning yellow and dropping. the other two are just starting. i've been removing most of them which is why they st
  2. well we're reaching the end of the flowering cycle and it's nearly time to harvest. this thursday is the 9 week mark and the Moon enters Scorpio (best sign for harvesting flowers) this saturday. i've been checking the colour of the trichomes and the majority on Wild Thailand, Panama, and Yummy are milky white. for the most part, it's been a very good grow. however, it's been rather hot the back half of the flower cycle this summer and as a result my Hawaiian Snow has suffered from some stress. i was also completely unprepared for how big she got! i had to transplant her from her 3 gal sm
  3. thanks brother! i'm sure this is going to be pretty amazing crop. last night, when i was doing my daily check on the girls, i accidentally brushed one of the buds on the wild thailand...the aroma was incredible...light and fruity. i can't only imagine how she will taste! i got a worm bin for my birthday a few years back. the first time i used the run off from the bin on some house plants i was amazed. almost immediately the plants stood up and became a brighter, healthier color. i had to give some to a friend and have them use it to make sure i wasn't seeing things! ever since then i'
  4. thanks Dust! this is my first garden that i will be growing to completion using soil i reclaimed / harvested and feeding only with bacterial teas i made. i'm pretty stoked about how healthy and vigorous they all have been. i've also never grown any of these strains before, so i really had no idea of what to expect in terms of growth rates or characteristics. one thing i have learned from this grow so far is that i will never grow hawaiian snow in anything smaller than a 5g container again! all of the girls are in 3g smart pots and even though this doesn't appear to have had any negati
  5. The girls have been in the flowering cycle for almost 4 weeks and they are going strong! Wild Thailand, Panama, and Yummy have all remained shorter and bushier than I would have expected for Sativas. Wild Thailand has responded very well to my pruning efforts and has the most bud sites of the three shorter strains. Panama appears to have fewer buds, but they have the potential to be fatter and denser than either Wild Thailand or Yummy. And speaking of Yummy, over the last week she has really opened up. I think her buds are going be somewhere between the density of Panama and Wild Thailand
  6. It's been 3 weeks +/- since my last post and the girls are going strong! During this time I topped them all and have been pruning. All of them are responding very well to the pruning and have produced a good number of lateral branches. One thing I learned from this exercise is that I should have allowed the Wild Thailand, Panama, and Yummy strains to grow taller before topping them. It has not hampered their growth by any means, but the Hawaiian Snow is a quick growing beast...she's already practically 20" tall even after topping her at 8.5"!! As for feeding, the only nutrients I have bee
  7. Well, I transplanted all the girls to their final home last Friday and was happily surprised by how well their root systems were growing. Not only that, but the soil was very light and airy...so I think I nailed my soil mix! As I noted when I started this journal, I've been following biodynamic / lunar gardening practices. This is first time I've ever tried this method and all I can say is I'm hooked! Anyway, yes, I took a bunch of pictures when I was transplanting...and yes, I'll share.... Mixing up a batch of amended soil.... Roots of Wild Thailand! Wild Thailand in her new 3
  8. looks like you're havin a great grow! stay strong...keep fighting the good fight! we will make legalization are reality in the US!
  9. cool, thanks for the tip, brother! the reason the girls are still in the small, 3" containers is because I've been waiting for the right time....this weekend while the moon is in the 1st quarter / waxing and in cancer. ever since i started following the principles of gardening by the moon the results have been nothing be good. cheers!
  10. So, even though it's only been two days since my last posting, it's been 7 days since I took pictures of the girls...and they are all growing strong! I have watering them with compost tea only and they obviously love it!

  11. @Jose.gh - thanks for follow! i actually got interested in biodynamic gardening because of my vegetable garden. i've been following the lunar / biodynamic calendar for those this season and was so impressed by the results that i decided to apply them to my indoor / cannabis garden. the way i look at it is regardless of indoors or out, the Moon has a definite effect on your plants so why not follow throughout all the gardens... @Madhorsefucker - yea, even though all of them are sativa / sativa dominant three of them sure do have some noticeable indica traits....we'll see how it goes....
  12. Well, after an unexpected hiatus I'm back and growing again! During my downtime, I've read more on organic and biodynamic gardening and gone much farther down the rabbit hole. My soil mix hasn't changed nor has my compost tea recipe. I have however, stumbled across a new area of study, biodynamic gardening. Most of you are probably more familiar with the term gardening by the moon. Biodynamic gardening takes this a step further by accounting for the not only the lunar phase, but also the lunar sign. Yea, yea I know...that's some real hippy shit right there. But before you blow it off, j
