    Mother fuckers.... Behold.... My update has come forth... Feast your eyes on what is to come! I have upgraded my Bloom room and have moved the Chocolope and some others, under the scrog net. Take a look!

    Day 54 / Day 2 of Flower She is looking good! I started with the LST training again to ensure she ends up with a nice flat canopy throughout this stretch period. With todays LST session she is around 32cm tall. Would be far taller if I had not done any training or topping obviously.

    Day 8 - Week 2 Not too much happening this week, just keeping eye on how the canopy develops, I will most likely retie some buds by next week and perhaps a light defol to expose some more bud sites to the light. I am pretty happy with the scrog coverage, node spacing is very close together and I think there will be no shortage of bud matter on these babies. The Chocolope plants are not giving any issues, real stars handling quite a lot of abuse (you will notice damaged leaves etc) with this scrog, not my fav grow style, but best setup for this growbox. Canopy size for the Chc#5 plant is roughly 40cm x 34cm at the moment. Peace and love yall, stay blessed up

    Day 64 / Day 12 of Flower A quick update, looking good. I circled the Chocolope so you can identify her. Excuse the pole, was too lazy to remove it. I had to raise her up a bit along with another plant as she isn't stretching at the same rate as the others and don't want her to fall behind.

    Day 69 - 15/08 / Day 19 Flower Full moon update. Plants are doing alright, still stretching a little. First sign of frost appeared a few days ago. They received a nice aerated compost tea full of goodness this morning. Its always amazing to see how they react to the moon when fed on the day. I might have been sceptical at first, but getting to know her I am really enjoying the character and shapes. And she is pretty easy too. Looking forward to see how she blooms ! Here is the one: x And the other one : The family :

    Day 62 / Day 10 of Flower I did a heavy defoliation / lolipop again this weekend. Then took some measurements today and pictures of the canopy and such. So far so good. She is getting pretty thirsty. She is now coming in at around 42 / 43cm tall.

    Day 61 - 07/08 / Day 11 Flower I will try to update twice a week from now on during the first 3 weeks of flower at least, hopefully that can give you all a good preview of how the Kush phone does in early flower. I am starting to regret not picking the other girl as I think with the manifold training she will have a very pretty structure. Lots of those extra leaflet on the leaf showing up which if I understand correctly means it is the Kush leaning pheno. The Trifoliate has only seen water and one AACT so far and is hooked with blunt, the other one has had various microbial inoculant and some humic/fulvic given during various watering, she is also on the outskirt of the main plants and is receiving far less light and a little more of the HPS situated next to her, she is basically in-between a HPS and a LED QB. I don't think it is required to update all plants after selection but if it's okay with admin I'll update both as it is a nice comparaison. The Chosen: The Other:

    Alright folks! Update time! So I'm sure somewhere along the way you guys have heard me mention that I sprayed some stuff on my plants during my IPM and burnt the shit out of all my soft new growth on all my plants across the board... So that sucked. But the choco is strong and is pushing through very well... I have an almost even canopy of budsites, and I actually think she's gonna go into my Bloom room to get her into the scrog. Yes... I'm referring to my Chocolope as a female... Positive thinking never hurt anyone 😂😂 @420SA I can't seem to be able to make any updates from the mobile platform. I can't comment elsewhere either

    Hey guys I'm really sorry for the late update, been crazy at work this week.🙈 So I repotted them last night and then today I did some low stress training using string and tape. Unfortunately I wasn't paying full attention to Number 1 while bending the top two colas and the stem split. I then wrapped it with tape and the she hasn't died yet💪 When I reported I place a hand full of bone meal in the bottom of the hole. I will be creating a post with a few photos of the repotting and training when I have a moment to breathe on the weekend. Going from left to right 2, 1, 3. Number 1: Number 2: Number 3:

    Hey guys and gals, apologies for the late update, made arrangements to update over the weekend only to fall ill and well things didn't go according to plan. So the only real update this week is I've potted up the ladies and placed them in the big tent, this should encourage them to grow with a little more impetus. Hopefully the next update we can visibly see the difference. Hope you all have a cracking week ahead.

    Howzit okes, apologies for the absence and everything else that went along with it. Long story short, I've been going through alot of personal kak on my side and disconnected from the world. As for the growoff, I accept fully if I'm disqualified. I will still update so @Totemic will have his pheno data. @420SA, thanks for the DM mate. I only saw it this evening.

    What's up gang. So of the 5 plants I have running I may have identified 1 male and 1 female, that being Choco#1 the male and Choco#2 the female. #3 to #5 are still not showing. Below is a group pic along with individual photos. Must say one thing I've noticed is this strain has some serious sized main stem and branches compared to most other strains I've run. Hope you all stay blessed.

    Day 59 / Day 7 of Flower I have had a fair bit of growth since the last time, getting bushier again and could do with another trim, have not had a chance to do so yet though. Made a tea too and switching nutes over to bloom nutes. Canopy is still looking good, although having issues with space in the tent and the negative pressure causing the tent to flatten the plant a bit on one side, grrr.

    Day 57 - 03/08 / Day 7 Flower Alright alright alright ! The have shown their sex and The chosen one has been picked. To answer @YourStonedBuddy all 3 plants are in different size pot but all in the same soil, Organics Matter (and the experimental batches, so not even close to whats on the market now) and it is the second cycle for all 3 pots, a 20, 30 and 40L. @PsyCLown yeah its 20,30 and 40. the tallest stands at 30cm , the other 2 at 18cm. They are indeed very bushy, I have noticed that my QB produces super stacked and bushy growth in veg, unlike a MH or HPS . A few weeks back I lost a Crystal Meth Auto seedling in one of my 40L blumat pots, not too sure what to replace it with I pondered on it for a while and suddenly decided to transplant the trifoliate Chocolate in there... After doing so I looked at it and thought "You Idiot !!" , I mean what if she is a male ? or what if she was not the chosen one... I'd just end up with an empty spot or a waste of blumats. I even wrote "stupid" in the journal next to transplant. But it all turned out alright as she is a girl, super healthy and my chosen one. I got damn lucky ! The other 2 turned out as 1 male and 1 female. I will be turning the on male into a Fermented Plant Juice for this season so that I can feed it back to his sisters ... Forced cannibalism, Diabolical! The other female will hang in the flower room on the side and do what she can with what she gets. All plants are still getting water only and a few foliar feeds with aloe or knf. The difference between the blunt and hand water is pretty huge! Sure they are in different size pots but still, the general appearance is a lot healthier on the automatic watering side. Here is the male : The females : And The Chosen : Cheers

    Update time: All going well, did a little defoliation this weekend hoping for better penetration. It's pretty cold in the Cape over the last week and it shows as the growth has slowed down some. Haven't identified any fems as yet but do think I may have spotted one male, but not 100 sure on that. The predominant Indica seedling has started to show a bit more of a her hybrid sides over the last week. Hope you all have a wicked week ahead, we're expecting another storm to hit over this evening 🙃.

    Day 46 I still need to pick a plant, have not flipped them to flower yet. I feel the Chocolopes have developed quite nicely over the past 2 weeks or so. I am leaning towards Choc #1 for the simple reason that it was a bit faster to germinate and therefore got a head start of a few days - although they are both very similar you can notice the extra height of Choc 1 over choc 2 .

    Diary update (2019/07/23) Quick update, not much news. Plants are filling in well after the large trim and training last week. #1 is still a slow grower, the other three are doing well. No sign of gender yet <<-- #1 Smallest one by far

    Day 57 Female 10 nodes, 1.5 cm internodes 24 cm high, should start getting bushy Enjoying her new pot, light and environment. Expecting some really good growth over the next 2 weeks. @Totemic strain seems very sensitive to light burn, also noticed it with some of the other grows.

    Ok 5 days short of 3 months. She got a good feeding of seed sprout tea, EM and Biobizz Bloom on Sunday. She loved it and was dry today. Gave rain water rain water today. Also installed the irrigation system today. I am getting lazy and it is hard to get to all the plants when they flower. She is 56cm tall today. Sent from my VTR-L09 using Tapatalk

    Good evening! I have in the last week done some more training as well as defoliation, and have fllipped to 12/12 today. I know it might be a bit late but I felt I needed a bit more structure. We'll see how it goes and hopefully it cam reach maturity by the closing date. They were also fed with rain water containing some molasses, kelpak, biogrow, fish mix, biobloom, aminomix and environoc 401. Conditions are between 21 and 26°C, and RH is 60 -75%. RH will have to be lowered with time, by watering slightly less than needed, and doing another defoliation during week 3. 🍁 Ps. I Hope everyone's flowering session turns out a great one!

    Week 12 - PREEEEESENTING The contender!!!!! So it has been just over a week since I flipped, and no3 is already showing some nice development and new growth. Not as many primed bud sites as I would have liked but preflowers are certainly showing now and looking good. I did a tiny train on her mid last week. Nothing crazy as she has already shrugged it off and onwards and upwards she continues. My tape measure went who the p#@$ knows where, so my crappy 38cm 👈🤷‍♂️ ruler had to do! Shes probably around 50 - 60cm in height, but will get a more accurate measurement soon. Not much more to report. How is everyone else feeling about their stages of development thus far? Peace and clouds homies ✌💨

    A friend of @CG420za has contacted him and @CG420za says he's fine however does not want to disclose any reasons for his lack of updates. He didn't say so but one can only assume it's a highly personal matter. He also didn't specify whether his grow is going or not so its all very hazy at the moment. With this in mind I would like to put this to the guys that are competing. What do you think is the best way forward for treating this case? Personally I would like to hear his case and so would like to give him another 2 weeks to fill us in, and if it's understandable, he'll be allowed to continue. Let me know your thoughts

    Day 64 - 10/08 / Day 14 Flower Absolutely nothing has happened over the last 3 days, they are just left alone to do their thing. Most branches are still growing opposite nodes or only slightly alternated as you can see. The Choosen : The other lady: Now VS 3 days ago , You can see the stretch happening. Here are all the neighbours around the Chocolope, I'm sure you'll be able to spot them.

    The plants have settled in well to their new pots. I can't find the memory card with the repotting on, I will keep looking for it. The split on Number 1 seems to have recovered well and didn't have a major impact. Number 1: Number 2: Number 3:

    Week10 - Final Destinations So re-potted this week into bigger pots and they all seem to be loving the extra leg room. Plants have taken well to their new homes and i am not expecting much slow in growth as they have been all looking strong and healthy and taken really well. Thank goodness as I am wanting to cram as much growth in the next few days/weeks before the flippening. I have notice a wierd growth deformation on Plant 1's leaves, 2 strange fingers protruding from the centre of the leaf. Looks really cool and excited to see what comes of this beauty. Overall a really good week and looking forward to the next few days as the young lasses (hopefully) all settle. Happy Growing 😉

    Update time! Plant is doing great with the training.. Really starting to put foot now. Haven't plucked any leaves and have just been tucking for now. No deficiencies at the moment with healthy new growth I always seem to take pics right after training which makes the plant look so meh...

    Diary update (2019/07/31) Three of the plants are still growing well, the fourth looks healthy enough it is just growing a lot slower. I'm pretty much out of space already so I'm considering flipping to flower early, perhaps as early as this weekend after moving them to the final pot size (~15L). For now I've done a bit of lolly-popping some LST training & FIMing but I don't have much more lateral space to work with. No sign of gender yet <<--- Strange mini leaf, perhaps from a previous FIM 🙂 Space 😢 But the plants are looking good

    Hi All, I've chosen my female entrant, as the others don't show their genders as clearly. Transplanted to a 10L Freedom Pot, LST'ed and defoliated during the week. The medium added is the same, only this time I've added some fine and coarse zeolite, as well as some bone meal and again some mycoroot.

    Diary Update, week 10 Plants are putting on weight nicely, so I'll probably be switching this weekend. I do need to make room in main flower tent, probably by using small tent as flower, or putting some pots outside. #1 is probably the competition plant, but I've got #5 (defn fem) and #6 (no sign yet) as last minute reserves. I'll only be switching the 1, other 2 will go in veg storage. There is a bit of wind burn on #5, my small oscillating fan broke, so I've been using a large fixed fan and leaving tent open. (Has anyone tried buying a desk fan in retail sa during winter. Not possible, lots of heaters, but no fans. Oh well, ordered online, and will only have to wait... forever...) Feeding/watering about 2x week. At about 1EC, although I'll up that a bit next feed, some lighter new growth is showing.

    Grow update (week 7) Garden greetings everyone I have not been able to tend to the garden lately, but managed to get a few pictures of my contender for the competition. She will get a decent cleanup in the week and some Lst to expose all those inner branches. I will not take the fan leaves off yet, just bending and tucking away for now. This will be the pot she flowers in, hopefully not a bad choice, i just do not have time to do a transplant now. This has been such a pleasure to grow, i have done about 3 grows so far and it was some good bag seeds that I saved, but to see and smell this plant mature and grow and its beautiful structure is so rewarding, good genetics really makes a difference and it is clearly visible to me, I doubt I will ever grow bag seed again. @Totemic Dude well done, if you ever in the future need some growers to test your genetics, Bro both my hands are up! 🙌👌 I will update some pictures after the Lst.

    Nothing much to report on this weeks update. The plants have recovered from their topping, and the tops have taken root. The clones have been switched to a 12/12 light cycle but no signs of sex yet. Other than that, just a repotting is need urgently, just waiting on them clones... Number 1: Number 2: Number 3: Clones:

    Hi all, The three remaining ladies are coming on very nicely for week 7/8. They will be receiving a transplant, defoliation as well as LST'ing soon, but here are the latest pics so long. I'll soon be choosing the participating lady, how will be hard to say as they all seem equally happy 😕 They have recently received a cocktail of Biogrow, Fish mix, molasses, aminomix, kelpak and biodyne evironoc 401. Conditions are about 19-24°C on average, and RH 59-80%. 🍁

    Hey all, So after speaking to some friends I was intrigued and decided to try and build a Bubble Cloner. I must give credit where credit is due and this mostly stemmed from @CreX I just purchased the stuff and put it together. Not a new concept or anything, however will be nice to have a reference on this website. What is a Bubble Cloner? A bubble cloner is where you have a tub with water and the clones are above the water, the stems never touch the water. You have an airstone (or a few) and the droplets from the bubbles popping spit small amounts of water into the stems of the cuttings. So fairly simple, I found a suitable tub. I did not want the water to be too deep so found something I felt was suitable. It's a 20L tub. Nothing fancy, best to try avoid something where light may leak through as roots are not the biggest fans of light. So best to avoid something transparent. I did not have proper equipment when doing the holes as I was not at my house, so made do to measure as the first few holes were not very straight. Ended up using a cutting board and knife to make the lines / markings to try get some uniformity to the holes. I ended up making the holes with a 38mm hole saw. For the blue discs I used a pool noodle. A bread knife cuts through it easily. I then took a 44mm hole saw and pressed down on it to create some marks and cut them out with scissors - very easy. In terms of light leaks I feel its sufficient. I ran out of pool noodle as I just cut a piece to take with me. I drilled two small holes on the side near the top to fir the tubes for the air through and then there were bubbles! As you can see I used two airstones, bubbles are important! You want to see the bubbles travelling to the corners of the container. I personally used these Tetra airstones, others will work well too. I used a Sobo SB9905 airpump which is dual output at 2x 5.5L/ min apparently and only uses 4.2W I had to clean up my flowering plants so decided to fill up the bubble cloner and test it out. So far this beats using jiffy pellets or soil. As per @CreX's recommendation I am trying to keep things simple, he likes to harden them off for 12 - 24 hours (at most) in plain tap water, so as you take the cutting place it into tap water and ensure the stem is submerged in the water. No humidity dome, just plain tap water with the chlorine and all. You can add rooting hormone on the stems, but not essential. After hardening them off, transfer the cuttings to the bubble cloner which is filled with tap water once again. Straight from the tap with good old chlorine! I put them into my veg area, I am trying without rooting hormone, no kelpak, nutrients, humidity dome. Nothing at all. So far all clones are still looking good. You obviously do not have to do it the same way, I may give it a try later on with a few additives. Perhaps some Trich and/or Kelpak although @CreX has not had as much success when doing so and finds that the stems tend to rot / go soggy more often then. He suspects the chlorine helps to prevent this. Next time I will most likely use rooting hormone as well, I have a gel. The powder may get rinsed off quickly though, probably the gel too. Anyways, hope this helps some people out, so far all is going well and I much prefer this method. I will report back in a few days / weeks giving an update on the rooting. I do not need this many clones, so just doing it to test things out and will be happy to trade them or perhaps toss them. All in all this costs under R500, I know I could have gotten my stuff cheaper from other shops, but I did not feel like driving all over the place. Realistically you could probably have this built for under R300 if you source well priced parts, an added benefit is you will then have an air pump and air stones to make a nice AACT for your plants too!

    Sex Confirmation and Competition plant FINALLY. 2 definite males (#4 and #5 - already disposed of) and 2 definite females one I am still unable to tell. I have chosen #3🍁🙌 as my growoff competition plant and trust she will bring fourth beautiful gleaming nuggs of deliciousness 🤩🙏 Very grateful to be a part of this awesome competition. This is where the fun begins🥳 I will still grow out the other 2 female plants (#1 & #2) and will post the development on a seperate thread. Peace and clouds for now✌💨

    What's cooking Cannafam. Once again a week of plain sailing pretty much. Only thing that really changed is 3 of the Chocolope had to put into 5 litre pots as the other 2. Plants started to become root bound and I left it as such for a bit too long so they became droopy, I persisted in the hope they will force sex but unfortunately nothing had shown as yet. Haven't had much luck in identifying sex on regs during preflower except here and there. I suspect this may be the case whereby I'll have to flower before sexing. It may only show once I uppot to 20 litres, hoping so. The uppot should happen in the next few weeks. Hope you all having a cracking evening and blessings for the week ahead.

    Day 50 - 27/07 - Day 1 Flower. One of the 3 plants is joked up with blumats, I think the difference is getting pretty obvious by now. Automatic irrigation for the win ! First day of flowering for the plants, I would have liked to veg them a bit longer but I just don't have any other space in the veg tent. The Mutant is going to be 2 main colas and 3 secondary on each side. The whorled Phyllotaxy is completely established and look like it here to stay, which is pretty awesome. The other 2 mainlined one are taking shape but the take a bit longer due to all the pruning and trimming.
