18-1-2018, a pleasant surprise
The Spliff Cheese autoflowers are standing since halve November in my G-tools table model grow box. Almost 2 months now. Still I think that I can leave them for another week or two. The seeds are placed in a coffee filter on the 5th of November to germ. Quite a ride it has been. If I can harvest around the 5th of February the whole cycles would have took 3 months. But the yield is great then to. Unbelievable how big, fat and heavy the tops are feeling right now. Like I said I would let the plants stand for another 2 weeks so the weight will only increase even more. The Hans panel 100w led grow light has the perfect spectrum and intensity voor the surface of the grow box. G-tools and Hans panel seems to be the ‘’perfect match’’.
In my life I have only grown plants outside once, so I don’t have much experience with that. I thought growing with a LED lamp would be something special, only for people who know exactly what they are doing. But nothing seems less true. After transferring the plants I did nothing else then turning the LED lamp on the ‘’bloom setting’’ and placed the supporting sticks in front of the plant. Since a week the plants can’t carry their own weight anymore. I haven’t given food or stimulators in the water.
The tops haven’t become much bigger in the past 2 weeks, but they have increased in width and have become heavier. The resin production in the trichomes has exploded. These glands produce the resin that has to protect the plant against parasites, cold and warmth. Over time this resin begins to discolour. When this looks like a milky white haze that covers the tops, the plants are ready to be harvested.
My plants are ready for the scissor. The tops seems to be rolled in powder sugar and are spreading a very nice sweet scent.The carbon filter in the Bonanza grow box ensures that even in this stadium you cant smell anything outside of the box, ideal.
The harvesting of the plants was very quick. I have cut the plant at the bottom of the stem and cleaned the tops. A lot of the big leaves had already died during the cultivation cycles and I have also removed some leaves myself. There wasn’t much work to be done anymore.
The Bonanza grow box also functions as a drying room. The fan causes enough air circulation to make the tops equally mature. Even now I can’t smell anything in the room where the grow box is standing.
The tops are dry and ready for consumption. After cutting all tops from the plant and weighted everything I got 97 grams of weed.
I now have enough medicine, even after summer is already over. Not bad.
