What's up Weed Nerds? So since the last update 6 days ago, there has been a lot going on. At the 66 day mark, I now only have 3 plants left. I have decided to cut the Knights Templar Og, due to it not doing very well. You may recall I pulled it out of the tent, due to Powered Mildew. I think it also had a root virus, but I did not catch that until after I cut the plant down. Regardless, it is now over with, and hanging to dry. Due to it being outside the last few weeks, and still the PM, I decide to give it a bud wash.
What is a bud wash? Exactly what it sounds like. Some people prefer it, and I even know some who won't even smoke a flower unless they knew it was washed at harvest. I myself have only done this a few times, and only when the situation absolutely calls for it. Don't worry no cannabinoids, or terpenes is lost due to this.
Since I am washing to get rid of Powered Mildew spores, I am using 3/4 of a cup of Hydrogen Peroxide in 4 gallons of water. The next compartment is filled with plain water. Usually there is an added bucket for rinsing, but this is a step I skip.
I then dip, and swirl a bud around in the Hydrogen Peroxide treated water, and then rinse in the plain water compartment.
Then I let the washed buds hang in front of a fan until thoroughly dried. After I then proceed drying like I normally would. Now I just have to wait, and see how they fair out when finished.
The other 3 are currently in the flush stage, and the buds are stacking up nicely. As I said earlier, day 66, and with at least 10 more days to finish.
The winner out of the 4 cuts! This strain is really appeasing all of my senses, and to me looks the best out of the bunch. If I ever had to choose, I would for sure grow this one again! In fact if I where to take clones, and do a perpetual grow, I would hope to have this in the lineup.
I have to say in the last 6 days this one has shown the most changes. The buds are really starting to plump up, and I think once it is said, and done they will be impressive. The nose on this one is quite different then anything I ever have had. Once I figure it out, Ill get back to you. Which I suspect once I get it in a jar will be more noticeable.
This is my 3 gallon contender, and honestly would probably be my favorite if it where not being so burnt out on Wedding Cake like terps. But it is still a nice plant, and is the sturdiest out of the bunch. No support needed for these buds!
So still a little bit to go. After the first flush, after the soil dried up I did hit with Molasses. I will do one more flush, and then wait, and access. Right now I am keeping humidity right at 40%, with it hovering around 42% during the day with lights off. I am being as patient as I can with these, since this will be the last grow in a 4x4 for some time. When I do decide to start a grow up in the near future, it will be in a small tent, 1 plant at a time. Which will be sufficient until I move into a bigger place. So this is why I need to make this one count! Until next time, have a great week everyone!
