    Update

    I have taken another test bud from each of the plants I am growing. I like to do this to look at the trics and see how advanced they are etc.

    As I only grow for my own pleasure and consumption, I just run one tent nowadays, that tent is used not only to grow, but also to dry my plants.

    I like to dry using the "Whole Plant - Slow Dry" method, that requires total darkness and a totally controlled environment with different Rh% & Temp.

    Therefore, I have to chop all my plants in about a 36Hr slot and dry them together.

    I am growing 3 plants, (2 of them Dedoverde Haze) I need to pick the best time to chop, in order to get the best overall bud from the 3.

    They range about 2 weeks apart, for ideal individual harvest times.

    So, looking at plant 1 (the most advanced), trics turning milky to cloudy, and starting to bend their heads over. this is where I like them for a balanced high.

    She could come down anytime now, but won't hurt going a week maybe 10 days longer. I will reduce her feed to water only this week.

    07th July 2019 Plant 1 Second Mid Level Test Bud 2.jpg

    Plant 2 is about 10 days behind plant 1, but she won't hurt if taken after another week.

    07th July 2019 Plant 2 Mid Level Test Bud 1.jpg

    Plant 3 is a "Short Stuff - StarDawg", she is at least another 10 Days maybe 2 weeks behind plant 1.

    So as they stand today, I will be looking to Harvest just after next weekend. However, it may change, depending on what I observe over the next few days

    The environment has been difficult to hold where I would like it for this late stage of grow... But, I managed to get some good readings after tweaking humidifiers and dehumidifiers here and there.

    Day:- Temp 29c, 54%Rh, VPD of 1.3 - Night:- Temp 24c, 58%Rh, (VPD not important).

    Plants Night to Day Environment Transition - 7th July
    Pulse 07th July 2019.jpg

    I will keep them somewhere around this range for the next week, reducing the Temp & Rh% more if I can.

    I will also reduce feed to "Water Only" towards the end of next week.

    Not far to go now.

    :pass:

    Update

    Prior to getting chopped, all plants have been on a "water only" diet for the last 5 days.

    Environment has been steady, and VPD well within my target range.

    Chart for the last 3 Days & Nights
    Pulse 15th July 2019.jpg


    There will be 2 seperate updates this week as I chop them, this one covers Plant 1.

    85 Days from seed to chop, one of the easiest plants to rough trim, just tug the leaf off.

    She is tall, stands 58" from top of soil to top of main bud, nothing wasted here either, there is usable bud from top to the very bottom of the plant.

    The buds are plentiful, very hard, dense and sticky, she has retained her Sativa heritage.

    Overall I am very happy with her (the test bud I took, dried & and smoked is exceptional).

    She will be hung upside down as a full plant, to slow dry.

    Update for Plant 2 will follow in a day or two.

    Update (Plant 2)

    This is my H.S.O. battle plant, Week 11, and what a plant she has turned out to be...

    :amazon::amazon::amazon:

    Chopped at Day 78.

    The thing about growing Monsters is there is always a hell of a lot of trimming to do.

    5ft 5" of very nice and very full plant.

    Luckily, like her sister, she was a lot easier to trim than some plants I have grown.

    Leaf tugging worked well, and I have enough sticky "Finger Hash" for a few joints this evening... Bonus.

    Here she is prior to 4Hrs of rough trimming.

    I shall be drying her as a whole plant, upside down and very slow, and then a final trim when dry.

    16th July 2019 Plant 2 Final A.jpg

    Buds are heavy and the stems needed support for the photos.

    After 4 Hrs she looks like this, a whole load of leaf taken off her.

    16th July 2019 Plant 2 Final B.jpg

    I measured her from the top of the soil.....

    16th July 2019 Plant 2 Final C.jpg

    .... to the top of the main cola.

    I had to break her neck twice during the grow as she was getting to the top of my tent.

    When the bends are accounted for, she measured 5ft 5" to the top, but I couldn't hold her straight and take the photo, hence the rule shows 5ft 2"

    16th July 2019 Plant 2 Final D.jpg

    Buds are dense and hard, and there is a lot of it.

    16th July 2019 Plant 2 Final E.jpg

    Some nice swelling has been going on this last week, I think "Mammoth P" has something to do with that.

    16th July 2019 Plant 2 Final F.jpg

    16th July 2019 Plant 2 Final G.jpg

    And finally, here is a shot with the obligatory "Coke Can" for scale.... I needed that after 4 Hrs of trimming.

    16th July 2019 Plant 2 Final H.jpg

    Tag:- @HSO-Mark @St. Tom

    I have been very impressed with the easy grow, no problems encountered, took feed well, no deficiency or toxicity issues

    not a tip burn to be seen and she drank like an alcoholic on a bender.

    The test bud smokes nice.... Overall, I'm very happy and would grow again without hesitation.

    Drying Update

    Both Girls have been slowly drying now for just over a week. 2 more days yet.

    Moving on to more interesting stuff....

    Today, I decided to play with my new toy, a Dabpress, and sample a little of my bounty (As Rosin).

    This was only my 4th time using my press, and still a very new concept to me.... But WOW !

    First pressing chart.jpg

    This stuff (as we British say) is "The Dogs Bollocks".

    Absolutely Top class, Flavour, Hit, Everything, Vaped in a Rosin Atomiser.

    :frog:

    :bow: @HSO-Mark

    :thumbsup:

    Post Harvest Update (Plant 1)

    After 10 Days of slow drying it was time to final trim and jar the buds from plant 1.

    The slow dry was difficult, keeping the temps down to where wanted.... But with the aid of humidifiers etc, the Buds ended up perfect, around Rh 60% when they hit the Jar for cure.

    This was the smaller plant of the 2 Dedoverde Haze grown.

    28th July 2019 Plant 1 A.jpg

    10g already taken as a trial when pressing live bud. So 196g total Bud weight with 5g kief screened.

    28th July 2019 Plant 1 B.jpg

    On to Plant 2, for final trim and into jars, will maybe start this one tomorrow....

    Post Harvest Update (Plant 2)

    After 13 Days of slow drying it was time to final trim and jar the buds from plant 2.

    The Temp & Humidity has been difficult to maintain for drying, ended up pumping 70%rh into the tent, to rehydrate the buds before final trim & jarring.

    But, "All's well that Ends well", I have a nice lot of dense hard bud, a load of popcorn and tric heavy sugar leaf trim for pressing into Rosin, and some screened kief.

    Trimmed Dry bud = 325g
    Kief = 12.7g
    Popcorn trim for Bubble Hash = 104g
    Popcorn Pre Pressed into Pucks for Rosin Press = 135g (15 x 9g to extract)

    So tomorrow I will be pressing Rosin.... Happy Days
