So much growth over the past few days
So I have come to the conclusion that I have harvested the majority of my plants too early and not really given them time to fill out in their last week. The northern lights I harvested last week was a bit airy, and I am pretty sure that it was because I didn't allow the plant to soak up all the nutrients in the end of its life cycle.
That is not the case with this bubblegum plant at all. Over the past couple days, I have noticed so much new growth happening in on the buds and it is really fattening them up quite nicely.
Yesterday morning, I noticed a bunch of new bright green buds and a lot of new white hairs coming out of them. They look like tiny rose buds that are forming. It has been pretty cool seeing all of this new growth as my leaves begin to fade to yellow. This tells me that my plant is diverting nutrients into bud production and not sending any nutrients out anywhere else. I really think that this bubblegum is going to be my best bubblegum plant I have grown.
One thing that has been hard for me to learn with growing so far is the art of patience. It is such an easy concept to think about, but after 10 weeks or so of growing, it is really easy to rush the last week or two and not really give the plant the proper amount of time it needs to reach its optimum sizes. For my next grow, I am also going to be getting a white board in the grow room so I can easily keep track of milestones with each plant. This has really been a breakthrough moment for me and I think it is just going to elevate my grows in the future.
For the best experience view this post on Liketu
Man, they look really well-bred. They remind me more of a lily than a rose. I hope you continue to master this and always have good harvests.
Thanks man. These last couple grows, I have been able to learn a lot. I am looking forward to seeing what I can do over the next year.
Everything gets better with experience. I think you'll produce better harvests. Good luck.
the last few weeks are definitely the hardest if you have to be patient. I also have that with Germination. after a week I already want to have a plant. but then it's only a small grass 😂
Patience is key with growing cannabis. It has taken me a while to learn that. I am usually the one to mess the plants up by just not letting them do their thing.
You get those colors to pop! Autos definitely have come a far way, and you’re showing everyone that.
Great photos and great thoughts!
I struggle with patience towards the end and also struggle with remembering dates and how long light cycles have been running.
A white board is a very good idea, one I'm flirting with now as well. The blog helps as a sort of log, but a white board would make it so much easier.
Bubblegum is so gorgeous, just like art and seems to be making the most out of everything.
Well done on your break though. I think it’s funny how patience works, being patient over a long stretch of time then losing it a few moments to the end of it all is just insane 😄
wow, all the pictures look really beautiful and awesome. it's amazing i love every detail of the picture. Thank you for sharing have a nice day brother.
Your dedication to your plants is quite impressive. Would you ever consider growing commercially? It'd be more demanding, but you do seem to have the technical side on lockdown, at least to maintain a modest customer base.
I have a noob question. Which part of the plant is smoked? 🤔
I always thought it was the leaves, but you've been particular about the buds.
This macro shots are amazing!! It’s wonderful how you observe and accompany your flowers! I didn’t know it was cannabis until I read it!
Congratulations for those detailed pictures!! I really enjoyed them!
