    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 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 :

    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!

    Day 69 / Day 17 of Flower So I finally got around to taking measurements, tallest cola clocks in at 51 / 52cm tall and on average my Chocolopey is around 50cm tall. Day 2 of flower the Chocolope was 32cm tall, so it has stretched 20cm in 15 days basically. It's actually quite difficult to take a picture of the height as angle plays such a huge role and with the lighting and holding the measuring tape, not as easy as one may think. I will admit, the Chocolope is amongst the shortest of my plants - the second shortest actually, and the bagseed plant being the shortest of the lot. The Chocolope is in the middle, at the front and the bagseed is in the middle at the back. Both of which are raised a bit as well. I feel the Chocolope is without a doubt more indica dominant and am not expecting any sativa like effects from it, but we shall see once harvested and cured.

    Day 66 / Day 14 of Flower So exactly 2 weeks into flower today. Looking good so far, excuse the 2nd pictures the LED's are bright and affect the colour. I am liking the way the Chocolope is looking! I will try take a better closer up picture later.

    @Hornygoatsweed was right. Only 1 female. Now I have a lonely female, but some space for training, which is nice.

    Day 71 - 17/08 / Day 21 Flower Not much has been done. I did do a bit of a defoliation. But thats about it. I don't think I mentioned it before but environment is the following : Day : 24-26.5Β°c and 55-59%RH Night : 19-21Β°c and 50-56%RH The one: And the other : BTW, she is in-between a 600HPS and a 480QB LED in this order. You can clearly see which light she prefers.(LED)

    Diary Update So another week has past and it seems like I have finally gotten the hydro grow thing kind of down. I've played around with the ppm a bit and managed to ger the plants a little darker. Will hopefully get everything ready this weekend to put no 6 into flower on its own. Now that they are growing I almost don't want to, but I suppose I'll have to eventually. I have not done any training due to the growth problems at the start, so I'll be growing x-mas trees with only 1 main cola and maybe a couple of little ones on the side. No 3 No 4 No 5 No 6 The jack herer also finally came out as female, so maybe I should mix my chocolope male with it and see what I get.

    Well, good news and bad news. Good news: I have a female! It's the one I thought I topped. Seems I fimmed it, as the regrowth is lopsided. Bad news is, the other 3 are almost certainly males. They don't have balls yet, but the bits are looking more like balls than not. I've started a new round of seedlings, so I will take the the males out to make room for feminised seedlings this week. So, it looks like this will be my plant.

    Grow update: week 2 of flower Not much happening this side, getting some stretch now as she his getting ready to go full swing. I could not find my tape measure any where and the wife was not letting me use her sowing tape measure. Hopefully will find it tomorrow then I can give the high of my plant. Think she is about 40 cm. More or less an even canopy with minimum effort. Bud sites looking good and starting to develop nicely. Took her outside to show her the stars, and hopefully when she is done flowering she will return the favour and show me the stars! ✌ *I must say the guys taking part in the indoor growoff, you guys are rocking it, plants looking fabulous and such beauties, Good luck with the final few weeks and it's been a pleasure following your diaries and keeping updated with each other's grows.

    Diary update (2019/08/17) - flower day 10 Starting to see some stretch I think, the remaining two (#3 and #4) are certainly filling out. #4 is now at ~46cm, so thats ~6cm since the last update. It may not sound like so much but the plant is now pretty large. I've got lights off from 09:00 - 21:00, so getting photos can be a bit of a pain but I'm going to try take both out tomorrow and get some nicer full plant pics #4 is also doing ok, from 30cm 5 days ago to ~35cm now Still no definite gender yet though, I would have thought I'd have see something by now. Hopefully this week... I'm still hoping that #3 is female as its about double #4 in size overall.

    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.

    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 πŸ‘ˆπŸ€·β€β™‚οΈ 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 βœŒπŸ’¨

    Week 13 / 3 of Flower Going into week 13 the buds are starting to show a little now. Looks like I'll only get about 7/8 prime sites but I'm happy with that. Definitely some new growth still happening and she is looking happy still. I have adorned her Treeny. 🌴 this is cos she was Choco #3 and she is quite tree like πŸ€¦πŸ»β€β™‚οΈπŸ€£ Not much more to report on at this point. PS still no sign of the measuring tape 😳 Peace and clouds growers βœŒπŸ’¨

    Really sorry! So I did a bit more maintenance on the training as well as some lollipopping. I added a scrog net today and I'm gonna give them a day or two to bounce back and then flip them to flower. Numbers 1 and 3 have shown female preflowers, Number 2 still hasn't shown sex to spite being the largest out of the bunch. Number 1: Number 2: Number 3:

    STILL VEGGING ALONG ... BUT MORE OPTIMISTIC 😁 DAY 73 πŸ˜‚ Better looking teens than the last update, but with busy times after flipping my grow room, transplanting 40 clones destined for various tests over the coming season & juggling life in between it all. Crazy times, but looking forward to the Killa Gorillas I've got in flower at day 17. I'll most likely pop the selected Chocolope specimen in with those girls to flower. The tent will stay reserved for veg at the moment as I'm not tempting fate by trying to flower until dialed in properly. Tomorrow there will be a thorough inspection of all 5 plants, where I'll select my leading lady. Then, all the attention can be focused on her. The newer growth seems happy but the tent's still wobbling a bit with PM every now & then (insufficient extraction mostly πŸ™ˆπŸ’Έ). A bit overcrowded too, but doing another clean out & treatment for that tomorrow, then transplant & feed the CHOSEN ONE 🀞. With better weather, I can reduce the overcrowding by shifting plants outside in the day, but then the problems come in when I cram some in during the colder temps at night. Can't wait for the outdoor season. My clones are being weather hardened outdoors but undercover for now.

    Hey guys, does anyone have experience with growing indicas in a hot environment? Got our hands on some awesome strains from B&B when the relaunch specials were on. But in the excitement research wasn't done, and we got mostly indicas. 2x ananas funk. Stated as mold resistant, but it's mostly indica. 1x gorilla glue, also indica dominant 1x gorilla glue auto 1x psychedelic. Indica 1x bigger bud. Indica 1x northern lights. Indica 1x amnesia haze, probably the only sensible choice because it's like 95% sativa. All from bulk seed bank, germinated the GG and psychedelic, both seeds cracked in cotton, under a diy humidity dome. No tap root yet. Plan on growing them all in small 4l pots until they mature enough, then moving them straight into the garden. What can I do just to help indicas flourish a bit more in the warmer days to come? Any training I should consider implementing? Thank for any advice guys. Happy growing

    Healthy outdoor Cannabis plants can handle high temps, providing certain conditions are met. Plants in a pot would stress a lot more than that of one who has its roots in nice cool garden soil, providing the soil is not bone dry. You could always provide them with a shadenet in the heat wave if you are concerned. Indicas generally can handle quite a lot of heat, if the plant is healthy and well cared for it will just eat up that sunshine. Do not move plants from indoors straight into heat like that, they wont enjoy it much.

    Alright, this will be my last update on this thread. I will create a new thread for v2. I have decided to order myself a 300mm x 600mm 2mm sheet, same size as my current light, but it's a single piece, reducing the amount of heat transfer paste needed, better heat distribion, and due to less rivits needed, will result in better aesthetics. Sheet was under R300, so cost is about the same as buying alu strips, but much less work for about the same price. Overall, light performance is good, so will be building 4 more over the next few months, replacing all my existing makeshift designs. Sent from my CLT-L29 using Tapatalk

    I'd say wait a bit longer. My one Chocolope seed took a good 4 or so days longer to sprout than the rest of the seeds. So far I have only had 1 seed not germinate, I did not see any cracks etc. and kept it for pretty long before giving up on it. Eventually I had to toss it.

    Aloe sap and cinnamon powder work well as rooting hormone... 4 X hot chillies, 4 X garlic cloves ( chop chop ) boil/steep for an hour or 2 on stove med heat. Strain off solids and store in fridge.. Take a big pinch of tobacco ( boxer ) add to 2lt water and steep over night, strain off tobacco. add 10-20ml chilli mix, 1 tbs cooking oil, 1 tbs dish soap to the 2lt tobacco water and you have a decent pest spray for the outdoor girls... Apple cider and hydrogen peroxide work well for powdery mildew...

    Looking great! That canopy will fill the area nicely in a few days I am sure. Especially when you flip to flower. Certainly one of the top hydro grows! πŸ˜„ I have a scrog net, although am not using it as I won't be able to get in and water all my plants and I feel it may become difficult to show off my Chocolope for the comp if I scrog. Fortunately you have more space so can keep the plants separate a bit easier.

    Week 10 update ~ week 1 of flower, and she is stretching out nicely. ~ will trim some of these lower leaves during the week. ~ starting with bloom nutes this week. ~ she reaching for 70cm tall now and I will get her width in the week. ~ Have not had any major problems and over all she is a happy lady.
