Don’t know what to say or feel about Beast Mode. It’s been over 80 days and she is still not heavily flowering. Frost is crazy though. She is frosting at the stems. The whole stem! But slow flowering. Is she a photo? Well, I am unable to find out since I have no means to provide 12/12 in my current setup. @MegaBuds any insight?

Still worried about Beast Mode. She is so big but only in 5 gal pot. Not sure if it will work out but since i got no bigger pots, gonna let her ride it out, if she can! So far so good but just very suspiciously slow…Rootbound?

An idea of how big she is. Candy Dawg is already a big girl!

hi @BakEQ
This is coming through as a near pure Sativa/Ruderalis cross by the looks of it which is the less common pheno. It looks like she has ignored any of the Indica in her genetic linage.
She is definitely not a photo as she is well into her flower development stage it is just they are not forming large colas. This is normal for Sativa strains to do but I must admit i have not see one of ours become effectively a pure sativa version.

If you have the space and patience to let her finish, you will get a very nice yield of outstanding flowers, but she will be an absolute bitch to trim - sorry.

Out of all my grows thus far, This is the only time I'm in a bit of rush. But I'm willing to wait it out.

Only thing I'm worried about is, will the 5 gal pot be enough for her to finish?

I think that because there is so much frost on her the overall result will be a pleasing one. The budsites are clearly very active it just trying to get them to fatten up is the challenge!

So you feel she'll be good to finish in the 5 gal fabric pot? At this point, I kinda just want her to finish. Big buds or not is very much secondary.

if that is all you have then it'll be fine. I wouldn't recommend moving now anyway as it will shock her and slow her down even more.

Beast mode still pretty much the same. A little more advanced in flower now. My plan is to finish her, dry a couple days, freeze her and dry ice hash the entire plant, after cutting into pieces.I hope she finishes soon before I lose my patience and trash her. She is drinking 5 liters daily. Not fun for me lol

She is starting to flower more heavily. With any luck, 3 weeks seems to be a good bet for chop date. I noticed her branches starting to fall down so I made the decision to fall/spread her on all directions, as best I could. It would happen by itself inevitably so I may as well play a part in shaping it. Just a light shake and she fell hard. Gotta lift up some branches with pipe cleaners.

She is VERY frosty. But buds probably won't amount to much. My hand is so sticky from arranging those branches. The plan is to cut her down into pieces of a few inches, place those pieces in a bag and freeze them for 1-2 days, then dry ice hash the whole bag! Sounds like a good idea?
