@912GreenSkell , @hope2grow , @Fatr34 , @otuaflower @Taipan cheers for your comments Guys!

Thanks also to @Spanglish for your rep points.... you must be enjoying the World Cup!

For me the best bit so far was during Iran vs Portugal.....

First the Iran Goalie saves a Ronaldo penalty.... the best moment of his life!
Then deep into extra time... Iran are (eventually) awarded a penalty.... they score!!!!
Cut to a man softly weeping.... tears of absolute joy!

Apart from the football, I've had a difficult few weeks.... blistering headaches and both shoulder rotator cuffs are fucked, so I haven't been giving the girls my full attention.

I must have not fed them for 3 days and then when finally pulled my finger out and watered them, I left them again for 3 days..... the Night Queen wasn't happy and her main cola's new leaves were going yellow at the tips.....

View attachment 923418

I wasn't seeing much growth going on with her.... in fact she's looked no different for maybe a week now.

I'm back in the groove again and yesterday I decided to feed her an EC 0.7 feed.... flush out in a way, but with a nice easy nute mix...... she hadn't been drinking much either cos I had loads of run off and her pot was reasonably heavy after 2 loads of 3 days no feeding.

Here she is now on day 28...

View attachment 923417

You see how her lower fans have gone yellow as well. Not a happy girl.

This is an issue I seem to get with one plant nearly every grow I do..... last time it was the Pineapple, the time before Cindy Jack.... etc.

I can't work it out.... @Fatr34 mate, there's me giving you advice and it's going on with me as well. I'd like to try and sort this out.... The yellow tips on new growth give leaves that look stripey, or old fan leaves are green in the middle with yellow edges.

It always happens in week 3... a crucial stage as they move up a few gears and go through a big growth spurt.

Was it the infrequent feeding?

When I prepared the reparative EC 0.7 feed yesterday, I noticed the temp of the water was 12°C.... I had made the previous feeds in a hurry (normally I let the water reach room temp before mixing up) and must have given them really cold feeds at least twice with 3 day gaps in between.... shocked roots?

The temp in the tent was between 27° and 31°C.... cold roots and hot temps?

The infrequent feeds I gave were an upgrade from the previous EC0.9 to EC 1.0.... did I lock her out? My last Night Queen was at EC1.1 at this stage.

The others are looking better. The other Dutch Passion dame is the Glueberry OG..... she was very short and bushy, so I have removed a few leaves and she's going well.....

The Dinafem's are looking even better.... the Blue Amnesia is very healthy...

View attachment 923414

.... but the White Widow looks like she's gonna be the star of this grow.... she is absolutely perfect and is gonna be another monster....

Here they are as a group on day 28 ...

clockwise from top left: White Widow XXL, Glueberry OG, Blue Amnesia XXL and Night Queen.

Thanks for looking in!

Yeh right man not a good run I was wondering where you had got to haha.

I'm not really sure I could help at all other then I haven't had it that happen to me yet haha. I've been leaving mine a day lately till they feel like they need and are fine have seen pistils now and my feed is normally around 14 degrees sits on a cold tile floor.

They are looking nuts for the age again to.

Strange how it seems to always happen to one tho

OK so it's 3am, and I'm up waiting for the Portugal Uruguay game. It's been a hard slog watching the tournament as most games are at midnight or 4am, but it's been worth it, there's been some great football.

I decided to spend some time with the girls and stake them out..... they all need to spread out a bit, and at 1 month old, they are just starting to flower. Now's the time to expose as many tops as possible before they go into stretch. The other option to staking is to remove leaves, but I prefer this method.

I started with the White Widow XXL.... the biggest and healthiest plant in this run.

This is her before, on day 28....

day 28 WW.JPG


.... and after staking out all the long stemmed lower branches....

day 31 WW1.JPG


A close up shows those stems bent out at almost 90°, but the tips and side branches recover very quickly and start growing upwards again. A low stress supercrop!

day 31 WW2.JPG


Then I did the other Dinafem, the Blue Amnesia XXL. This plant is a bit shorter, and more bushy. A stake out was really needed not just to expose all the tops, but also to get some light and air in.

This is her on day 28....

day 28 BA.JPG


.... and after today's staking out.....

day 31 BA1.JPG


and from above...

day 31 BA2.JPG


A close up shows how I bent out the branches....

day 31 BA3.JPG


The Glueberry OG is another squat, leafy plant. I've been really tempted to cut a few leaves off, but resisted the urge and now she's staked out..... because she was a bit shorter, I used soft wire to hold the bent stems down by hooking them to the holes in the sides of the Airpot.

Before, on day 28....

day 28 GB.JPG


.... and after some training of the lower side branches....

day 31 GB1.JPG


.... and a close up.....

day 31 GB2.JPG


Finally the Night Queen..... slowly recovering from some kind of lock out issue.
I had a bit of a dig around to find the causes of yellow tipped leaves, and one theory is light burn, not heat stress.

According to Grow Weed Easy, Light burn usually causes yellow leaves at the top of the plant directly under the grow lights (though it can appear on older leaves that have been exposed for a long time).

With light burn, often the inside veins stay green. Yellow leaves won’t fall off or be plucked off easily, unlike a nitrogen deficiency where leaves fall off on their own. I found this to be true.

Light burn is often mistaken for a Nitrogen deficiency which makes wilting yellow leaves. Nitrogen-deficient leaves fall off on their own, while light-burned leaves are hard to pluck off.

A Nitrogen deficiency creates yellow leaves at the bottom of the plant as the Nitrogen is sucked out of the oldest leaves to feed the top of the plant.
On the other hand, light burn produces yellow leaves at the top of the plant under the grow lights because the leaves have worked too hard and/or too long from the light being too close. The leaves aren’t able to keep up with regular plant processes.

They also said that Light burn is very common with LED grow lights with just read and blue diodes, without any diodes in the green spectrum.

Bearing in mind I have my lights on for 24 hours a day non stop, and that these LEDs are very powerful, I'd say this might be the problem...... I haven't adjusted the height of the lights since they were seedlings, so perhaps the high intensity of the Skyline 400 was too much for the Night Queen?
I dunno, but when I saw all 4 plants showing signs of yellow tips this morning, I had to act fast!
I cranked the lights up for all 4 from 1ft to 2ft above the tops.

The Night Queen is not looking brilliant, but she is growing and flowering....

day 31 NQ1.JPG


She's not very big, but most of her stems are clumped together in groups of 2 or 3, and I thought it would be good for her to spread out a bit with a few stakes, and maximise what pitiful harvest she has in store for me.....

Here she is now.....

day 31 NQ2.JPG


That's it for now, gotta get back to the Uruguay match, they're up one and it's almost half time!

Hi, welcome back to my grow, it's day 37, week 6, and the Girls are all in flowering mode.

Last week I staked them out, and they have all gone into stretch. Now they have planty of space to fill out with some fat buds!

The White Widow XXL is just massive.... 80cm high and 70cm wide......

day 37 WW1.JPG


and she has tons of long stems all ready to explode with flower.....

day 37 WW2.JPG


The other Dinafem, the Blue Amnesia XXL is not as tall, at 55cm and 65cm wide, but again, there's plenty of potential in her....

day 37 BA1.JPG


From above, she has lots happening....

day 37 BA2.JPG


The Glueberry OG is gradually moving up the gears, she is also 55cm high but much wider than the Blue Amnesia, at 75cm....

day 37 GB1.JPG


The Glueberries that I have grown in the past have all shown prolific multi stem growth, and this one's no different.....

day 37 GB2.JPG


She might be slightly shorter than the massive White Widow, but I reckon she will give her a good run for her money and also give a huge yield. I'm smoking some of the Glueberry from last grow, and it's such a lovely smoke!

I also love smoking Night Queen, but I don't know if I'm gonna get as much as I did last time. She has recovered from her lock out, but is on an EC 0.7 feed, compared to the others, who are on EC 0.9.

She has stretched and is just taller than the Blue Amnesia and the Glueberry, at 57cm. Unfortunately, because she locked out at such a crucial stage in her growth, she's a bit on the spindly side.....

day 37 NQ1.JPG


I dunno if she's a different pheno to the ones I'm usually blessed with, this one's a light feeder compared to the ones I've done before, and has a completely different leaf shape as well.

I staked her out just to maximise the minimum, and she's looking OK.....

day 37 NQ2.JPG


So as a group, her they are, with the massive Widow at the back left, the Blue Amnesia next to her. The Glueberry is in front of the Amnesia with the spindly Night Queen beside her....

Thanks for taking a look, have a great weekend!
