Starting a new grow featuring a Wedding Cake Video grow journal. I will also have Tropicana Cookies, Pink Lemonade and GG4 growing along side her. Should be exciting. I have only grown GG4 before.
These plants were vegged for 2 months and are pretty large, They are in 5 gallon pots with rockwool mini cubes and my DIY top feed drip system. Running the full line of New Millenium nutrients. Lighting will be 750 w of Cree 3590 COBS at 3500K
Wedding Cake, Tropicana Cookies, Pink Lemonade, GG4 Grow Journal Day 0
Been wanting to run Wedding Cake for a while now and have the original breeders cut and she looks like a nice plant. I will be flipping in a day. Meanwhile these ladies got fed with New Millenium Decision which helps stop stretch and helps promote earlier flowering. Considering how tall these ladies are I will need all the help I can get.
Wedding Cake, Tropicana Cookies, Pink Lemonade and GG4 Day 7
These ladies are quickly turning into monsters. But I’m not complaining! I just gave them another feeding of Decision because there are 2 more weeks of stretch
Leaf Stripping On Day 10 And Day 15 Results
I have a really big GG4 with over 50 tops and it takes up half the tray. With so many tops things were getting overcrowded and some of the tops were not getting much light at all. Worse, there was not much air circulation with all that crowding. So I decided to defoliate on day 10 instead of waiting until days 14-21 when I usually do it.
Wedding Cake Video Grow Journal Leaf Stripping And Day 21 Full Recovery
They have recovered nicely as you can see from the video and everything is now flowering. Excited to see what they look like in a week! The Pink Lemonade and Wedding Cake are showing nice trichome development already. I am starting to smell them too and the Tropicana Cookies is definitely giving off a citrus smell already.
Wedding Cake Video Grow Journal OMG! PM! Day 28
So I found a few spots of Powdert Mildew starting on my Tropicana Cookies. I think I caught it just as it started growing because it wasn’t there a few hours earlier. More about what I did at: https://420grower.org/powdery-mildew-day-28-wedding-cake-tropicana-cookies-pink-lemonade-and-gg4/
Wedding Cake Video Grow Journal Day 35
Today is day 35 and buds are getting a bit bigger every time I look. I have been running PK boosters for about a week and leaves are showing it. Using New Milleniums Apatite and Plagron Green Sensation. Been following the Secret Sauce feed chart but it’s a bit too hot for rockwool so I will reduce my ppms from 1200 to 900. Burnt tips and leaf edges starting to show especially on the Wedding Cake. It wont hurt anything but I dont like to see it.
Early Finish? Wedding Cake Day 44
Wedding Cake on day 44 looks like it is headed for an early finish. Most of the plants are not drinking very much with the exception of the GG4.
Early Harvest On Day 51
This video was taken the day before harvest. I know its early by days on the calendar but the plants are showing me that they are done. I have another crop of 4 Wedding Cake plants ready for flower and so decided to take these down.
