Ack! Scared of failure, but here goes my first journal

@happilyretired have you tried to see what your average stretch is on most outdoor grown plants?

Indoors i see 40%-60% in stretch.

Yeah I can see 50% probably most the time around 30% really depends on the strain some sativa’s can just get stupid while I’ve had Indica’s that probably only stretch 20% but just got girth from hell.

My friend grew one up over the roof! It was a damn tree. He got busted by his sister before we got to finish it outdoor.

Hey! Did you know this is is happening in August?

That’s right past Hoodsport! Heck yeah, I’m going!

I didn’t read any of your thread yet today. It looks like I’ve got some catching up to do.

@mudman Maybe you can enter your ISK for 2022!

This and the other girl are both White Runtz X Skywalker OG. What’s funny is the other one isn’t as bushy. I would almost think the labels got mixed up but they didn’t (unless boyfriend made a booboo and didn’t tell me LOL)

I remember reading that bushy and/or short could indicate female and that tall and/or scant (non-bushy) could indicate male, but not sure how true that is. Each strain you gave me has both bushy or tall or both (if I recall correctly but no way am I going outside in the heat LOL)

So, Yay! Thank you for girl verification!!

Some males are more vigorouse and lanky yes but some strains do that naturally. And since those are F1’s they can be different phenotypes. Like siblings some may be buff, some may be short, or tall. I wish all seeds were exactly like the parents. But nope but usually 80% of the traits are carried over from the female. So i always made sure i used beautiful nice bud producing winners

Wow! That is close. No, I did not know this was happening. Sounds like it might be at Mike’s Resort. It’s one of two scuba places in the area and is very quaint and old. And they started having live music this summer. Hmmm. I love that place. Putting it on my calendar to consider. Trying to fit as much fun stuff to do between July and September is hard!! Thanks for sharing! Hope you are staying cool!

All of that info goes right over my head! F1s, phenotypes, etc. LOL … but I trust you know what you are talking about, way more than anything I’ve read. Does sounds like genes and people. You know know what genes any kids is gonna get til you see. LOL … I should probably research what F1s are … :slight_smile:

I’m trying. I went to a Safe Access Market event downtown this afternoon.

It was pretty cool. There was a lot of free stuff. Tons of stuff to buy, but there wasn’t any pressure to buy anything. It was more of a social thing. I bought a $5 smoothie on my way out to drink when I got home.
5 dollar shake

That smoothie was so freaking good.
5 dollar good

There was no bourbon in it. But it was medicated. I wish I had another one.

"The term “F1 " means the “first filial generation,” or the initial cross between two genetically distinct plants” … I love to be able to say that I learn something new every day. Especially at my age LOL …

and … " F1 stands for First Filial Generation. Usually, dominant features prevail in this generation. For the appearance of recessive and “stabilization”, the varieties of plants of the F1 generation must be crossed with each other. “F1” denotes that the seeds or plants have two true-breeding parents."

Yes i could have told you that. But you learned it see. Nobody needs to be told how to do anything. Just given the right path and just enough information to peak your intrest into researching. Thats what i do i like to understand it fully before i say anything like i know wtf im doing lol. Usually i can show you how to do it by showing you how i did it!

So, a little leaf thing here on just one of my ten plants. I looked at the cannabis leaf symptoms site and it could be manganese deficiency? But the photos show a worse version of this on both sides of the leaves and mine only have it on one side of one lower fan leaf. I’d appreciate any thots on this. Thanks!

That would be amazing!

It looks like under feeding from when it was in the cups. If theres not wnough food the plant will sacrifice the lower plants leaves and eat them. Usually you can tell by. Gently tugging on the leaf. If it pops of easy its not eating the leaf and theres an issue. If its hard to pull then the plants eating the leaf. It looks like it was old growth. Monitor it or pluck it and those dried out lowest leaves.

That sounds AMAZING!! Do they take non vets at times?? The only cannabis thing I’ve ever attended is that yearly festival in Olympia down by the Lake. I’ve never been to the Seattle one.

When I go out tomorrow morning when it’s ‘cool’ … I’ll check more closely if it pops off easily. I moved from Solo cups to the bags on June 17th and stopped feeding due to the nutes in FFOF for 2-3 weeks. I have Jacks 321 all ready to start using. I’ll get back to you on what I find out tomorrow so that we can make a plan :slight_smile: I’ll also pluck those dried out lower leaves. Thank you!
