My name’s Browny, thanks for letting me join the page. I’d like to share my current grow with the group if I could please.
This batch is growing outdoors in my old compost pile. The sun here provides 11 hours in the least and 13hrs at the most. I’m growing a pure landrace Thai sativa strain. I don’t check the water pH and all water comes from a nearby river. I’ve not given them any store bought nutrients (I make my own sometimes) and I’ve also not topped or trained any of the plants. This is because I didn’t think anything of them initially. I assumed they wouldn’t finish up flowering due to bad timing putting them in the ground (throwing a handful of stem and seeds into the compost bin) and not tending to them for the entire vegetative stage. Also knowing the usual weather patterns here and what was to come, like rain, 0°C-35°C temps with strong winds and long periods without sun in the approaching winter. I was also already 1 month into the slow change from 11hrs of darkness to 13hrs of darkness (so wasn’t sure if they would switch to flowering) and as of the 22nd of Dec, I’ve slowly been heading back in the other direction (more daylight) I’m getting around 11hrs 10min of daylight today.
Luckily though, the weather hasn’t been as harsh as last year and I’ve now gone through the worst of it…and as it turns out these are quite resilient plants. I started taking an interest in them 2 and a half months ago and I’m interested in seeing how these develop over the next few weeks and sharing some of the results. As of about a week ago, genetic foxtails are being produced all over the plants, which I think is quite interesting to see first hand.
These girls spent 8wks in veg stage and it’s now been 6.5wks since flowering begun/pulling the 2 males. One plants been ahead of the other 6 by about 2 weeks. I feel it’s still got a couple weeks to go and the others maybe about a month. It’s not back to 12/12 until 14 Mar so I feel they’ve got time to develop and finish right off…I really hope they do.
I don’t have many pictures but here’s the few that I have taken as they’ve slowly come along the last 4.5months. Currently I need to tie them up as they’re getting heavy and the wind is strong, plus we’ve had some rain and they were nearly on the ground with all the extra water weight.
Edit: Not sure how to add pictures at the moment, hopefully I can post some in the comments section. Cheers.
