Milky Way in the Bonanza 250 Growbox – Part 11

By: Kevin, July 25, 2017

14-7-2017, Harvesting

Today is the day. After 2.5 months we can finally harvested. The Bonanza 250 growth kit, the genetics and good care have produced a fantastic result. The Milky Way has really become a beautiful plant. The plant almost collapses under the weight of the tops. ¾ of the hairs on the tops is tainted brown and there is an beautiful milky haze over it. The Milky Way gives credit to its name. Thanks to the “lollipopping” a few weeks ago the harvest is a piece of cake. After the Thieving (“lollipopping”) of the plant only 10 side branches remain each with their own compact top. The clipping of the plant only cost me about a half an hour.

Here is a lighter as reference.


The freshly harvest weed will also be dried in the Bonanza grow box. The Box is 100% dark and well ventilated. With the air extractor and the carbon filter the weed is dried odorless and well ventilated. For the final quality of the weed it’s important to dry them well. During the drying process various substances are converted into sugars that in the end determine the flavor and smell. The process of drying must occur in the dark and in a well-ventilated room. The best instrument for this is the Bonanza. The whole drying process takes about a week to 10 days.

This time we can use to grow 6 Alegrias for the next blog. Last week I showed you that I planted the 6 seeds. Most of them have grown out. In the coming Blog I will cultivate the best of the 6 in the Growbox. I will replace the lamp for a G-leds 140 Watt grow bulb.

By then I will have a final grading for my Milky Way breed.
You will be hearing from me. But for now first on vacation!
