  Hey All!! So I was talking with my therapist or maybe it was a homeless guy, but someone said I should make some new friends, so here they are!! lol

  These babies are gifted from @Chillbert and I've been excited about these babies for awhile. I got these with last years hash comp prizes and have been waiting patiently. I'm calling these Mimosas because I/we think that's what they are. lol But none the less, these little beauties are already fragrant!! wtf, they'll be 3 weeks old on Monday, and they have 6 nodes so I'll probably top them today, maybe. I have room to transplant 8 into 5gal/19L buckets but have 12 regular plants. I might get more buckets or not, haven't decided. I want males and females, I'll put the males in the tent and the females in the grow room, collect the pollen and clone the females, I don't know what I'll do after lunch? lol

  That's the plan so we'll see. Regardless, man they smell good already, nothing has had this aroma, this early. 

  They were started in Jiffy pods, planted in leftover Super Soil. The SS was watered in prior to planting with LAB and PH'd water, and they got one watering with compost tea, water soluble calcium and molasses, they LIKE! 

 Well they have their plan and I have mine, let's see what happens. lol   thanks for stopping by, looks are always free. 🖐️

Update, Day 21 Veg,

  Howdy Do everyone, I transplanted 8 out of 12 last night, I'm not sure what I'm doing with the other 4 atm. I could put them in buckets but I have 8 buckets with holes in the bottom, do I need 12?? After this run will I have 12 plants again or just a pile of, "Holy Buckets Batman!!" lol I could stick one in a mug and that would probably really piss it off, then I'd have Mimosa everywhere!! lol I need something different. 

  Each plant is in 4 gallons on Super Soil, it leaves some room in the bucket to top up later. The soil was mixed and wetted with PH'd water with LAB, then it sat for a total of 4 weeks+ cooking. The Plants were added along with a tsp of Fox Farm Jump Start mixed in the hole, and the watered in with 500ml of Jadam each. The last watering I use the compost tea technique from the pod cast, I used a gallon of compost and a gallon and a half of water and shook the shit out of it for 10-15 minutes in a sealed bucket. I added 1-tbsp molasses and 4ml Water Soluble Calcium, PH'd to 6.5 and they loved it after they recovered, lol it may have been almost too much for 2 week old plants, but @Chillbert builds them Stout!

  They're a little funky this morning, I'm sure they'll straighten out, but I'm very happy with their progress so far. These are some very nice looking 21 day old plants to me. 

The teams are on the pitch, and it's the White Team against the Blue team.

Update, Veg, Day 28

  Hey all, I'm back with another weekly report. Things are moving along, some are better than others. The 8 plants that are in the buckets were all topped 4 days ago. I did buy new buckets for the other four so they got black buckets and the buckets smelled funky so I washed them very well but still have an odor. It's the same soil that I have used on the others, so when these 4 started having problems after the transplant I was wondering why. Whatever it is, it's affecting the top of the plant which means it's immobile and there's only a couple of things it could be. Now it possible that it could be light stress too because I'm getting a bit rammy with the light, so I raised it a few inches. I gave them some fish shit and some Water Soluble Calcium all PH'd at 6.5, they liked it. So I don't know about this soil stuff, I mixed the batch of super soil according to the recipe but I'm still too new to this and trying to figure out what's up. I also made a batch of Jadam, that shit fixes anything/everything!! 

  My soil meter is still reading a very high PH 7.5-8+, so I took soil samples last night and will test them today. I have two different soil test kits so I'll use both and compare, I hoping my meter is wrong, because the plants don't look like their PH is off. 

  Today is day 28 for them so I'm going to flip them today to 12/12 and wait to see what happens to whom!! I could make plans for after that but lets just take it one step at a time.

This plant was topped and here she is 4 days later. They all have a sturdy stem to stand upon!! lol

White team against the Blue team, guess I'll put white strips on the black buckets and they can be the officials! haha

Here's the two problem plants. When diagnosing a plant problem I have to look at everything, not just what the plant looks like but it's location in it's environment. These are the only two plants showing these problems and when I look at the obvious, I see they're both in the exact same spot under the grow lights, and they are both set the same, coincidence? maybe, but something to keep in mind before I throw the kitchen sink at them. I raised the light 3in.

Update, Day 35, flip day 6

  Hey, I'm back with this weeks list of shit that has happened lately. So they got flipped to 12/12 schedule 6 days ago, had to break out the heater and get it up and running. The room seem to find a new configuration with each grow, something is always getting moved to a new spot and I have to deal with it. So the heater found a new home mounted on the wall, floor space is high priced real estate as we all know, so with a little help from a Pink Gorilla and some MacGyer hallucinations and BAM done deal.

  Two days ago I went looking for sex and found it, I found 6 out of 12 were males and the others were/still Unknown at this point. So I choose the 2 best males of the bunch and put them in an isolation chamber (a tent) in the basement behind closed doors. I completely understand that I'm just slowing down the inevitable, and that the repercussions of these actions could have ever lasting effects, fuck! 

 

 This is what's left of the two teams, now it just the big ones against the slightly smaller ones. These two males look like their stuck in a lift somewhere. lol lift music playing...

Floor space is prime real estate everywhere so the tent is on wheels here in the basement laundry, I think it really finishes off the room finally, all that was missing was a grow tent and the room looks fabulous now!! fuck 🤣 it brings out the mustache.

Update, Day 42, Day 13 flip, 

  Welcome back everyone, it been another week and a lot of activity. This last week they went 4 days between watering, before this it was over a week or more between watering's. So now I'm trying to water slightly less so I don't get runoff, not even a little, trying to find it's sweet spot, 2-L+ seems to do ok for now. I may have to water more often with less water each time. I'm still trying to get my water technique figured out, but their not dead yet so I'm doing something. lol 

  They were flipped and took about 11+ days to start showing pistils, I'm thinking it was because they were only 28 days old at flip and it took awhile for them to get the notion. Now that they have their orders they're on their way. Their stretch has started too and they're bushing up nicely, so gotta act fast. Go Speed Racer, Gooo!!

  Yesterday was watering day, so that gave us all some one on one time together, and after drinking their fill it was time for some stretching exercises!! lol I know, everyone does all their LST before now, but I wait till the eleventh hour and then I frantically work to get everything done at the last minute. Not! lol Yes I wait but this is my personnel preference. So with all the plants just started flowering and with stretch just starting and another week of it left to go, I quickly drilled my buckets (4 holes, one for each branch) grabbed some flexible copper wire with outside coating on it, and start to carefully flex and bend their branches to open up the center of the plant and all the bud sites there that are waiting for me. Hi 🖐️! Now, imo, everyone gets the same amount of stretch, instead of just the main branches going straight up, every branch big and small get the opportunity to grow and this keeps overall height down.

 Their still trying to figure out this whole flower thing and are distracted with that, so I sneak in and carefully and slowly just bend her 4 main branches down and that causes everything in the middle to pop up. No leaves are removed, no cutting of anything, just bend gently and tie down gently. I work the entire branch flexing and manipulating it into position, these branches are big and set in their ways, so I have to convince them to bend my way. I had 100% success with No broken branches out of 5 plants. yay!! 2 leave died, 😩.

This was yesterday morning during watering, bud sites are starting to explode and grow quickly. 😲 oh shit!!lol

Bending them down opens up the interior and exposes all those bud sites. Thank you. 😊

By the afternoon they had recovered (not they needed to) and were back at it and had covered up everything with their fans again. This is when it's time to tuck, and a tuckin I did go!!

Update Day 49, Flower 20,

second attempt, power went out when I was proof reading the first one. 😆 

  Another week of fun with Mimosas, everyone is doing fine, all six of them. They should be about done with stretch but they started late so idk, but the slight bit of LST the other week has help immensely. Opening them up slightly has exposed all the inner buds that would have been hard pressed to get any light to even with Bubblehoks light. This way I conserve some power by keeping the lights turned down a bit but closer and spreading the plant means all bud sites are stretching now, not just the mains so overall height slows. The mains can still get tall and I was thinking about super cropping and decided, not.

  They have been drinking more and I'm trying to find their sweet spot with watering times and amounts. I think I'm getting the timing figured out, I'm letting them dry but the soil seems fluffy and I'm having trouble getting all the soil thoroughly moistened. It's slowly coming together now that their drinking more and I'm water more but the problem was water was running through to quickly no matter how slowly I added it. So I've watered with plain water PH 6.5, I made a tea with 1 gal compost, 1lb worm casting shook in a sealed bucket then strained, added 3 tbsp. Molasses, 52ml fish ferts all in 5 gal RO water PH 6.8. They'll be getting LAB and Jadam after some plain watering.

  The main colas are getting tall and I was thinking about bending them over but took the lazy road and decided no. An hour later a fan broke lose from the ceiling and slide down guillotining two plants, but the worst of it was it scared the shit out of me! lol I happened to be in the lung room and I thought someone was driving through my fing house! lol One plant was worst than the other, one was split all four ways at the main. So I undid the LST wires and used other wires, crossing them to bring the branches together to mead the split, then taped the split as tight as possible. Then the fun part was I had to rewire the LST wires or she would have shot straight up, so a bunch of oops, and I'm sorrys and BAM, she's done. Must have worked cause she's still here and never missed a beat, leave have been praying the whole time since.

It's getting full in here.

There's a few more bud sites that can enjoy the light.

That wouldn't have done the old ticker any good hearing those noises coming from the other room 😆 I think I saw you mention it on the stream the other night, I passed out sometime soon after lol, but I had forgotten about it again untill now. That's a nice repair job.

The toughness of those plants is unreal. And she hardly has a scratch on her after the incident.

When you water them do you use a jug, I use a plastic lemonade bottle, I find it easier to control the water delivery.haha  If your having trouble getting all the soil wet I dont know if a small watering can would be any better for spreading the water out a bit.

They're looking good even if one was attacked by a crazed fan.lol 🙂 👍

@stootie, yeah it crashed and I freaked and came unglued, lol it gets quiet here if you turn off the noise makers. Folks want to meditate, come out here, it's just you and your thoughts and an occasional bump in the night. lol

I use a 500ml cup to water the plants and the plant have wires that sections the buckets into fourths. So I line them up and give each plant one a cup, turn them a quarter turn and other cup till they all have 5-6 cups, (6=3L) it takes a bit to get back to the first plant watered so each cup had time to soak in. Yesterday they got 6 cups/3L and not a drop leaked, this was a first. So yes the smaller watering device does seem to work better as does having 6 plant and it taking a bit longer to get back to the head of the line. I was looking at those carrots thingys but I like cheese cake so I should probably keep watering by hand. 🤣

Update Day 56, flower Day 27,

  Hey back with a shit pot of Mimosas still and hoping my state passes the legal weed thingy tomorrow, really, really bad!! LMAO Good God man!! lol yeah somebody in my neighborhood is growing weed and somebody else is going to find out who it is real soon, so pass that shit!!!  

Everything is about the same, their drinking more, I'm watering more. Now their drinking about every other day 3L. Been giving just straight RO water PH balanced with well water and they are happy as shit, and a very religious bunch they are. Too many plants, I can't spread them out enough and maintain air circulation, heat during the day from the lights and high humidity last night because I forgot to turn on the dehuey, sorry. lol Buds, buds and more buds and they look as good as they smell. This isn't a skunk smell, this is Holy Shit smell. I've only got to keep them under wraps for a few more weeks another month, piece of cake! lol I think my carbon filter quit last year, not that it would do any good. 

Pretty Momma is prego as all get out, there's not one bud site left untouched. Her seeds are starting to develop should be set on regular Mimosa seeds for awhile.

@woodi2 at last !  ! ! !

epic growing on here (as always!!)

finally managed to get into the forum but not from my house internet.. its clearly my house internet thats the problem - hope t get it sorted but its been proving tricky ...

so what you are growing is a mimosa evo x queens black lime pie 

the mum was a mimosa evo from barneys farm stock and the QBLP male hails from emerald mountain genetics 

they are hungry fkers esp early in flower ..if i remember right

i have literally just finished smoking my last bit thats was chopped a good 8 months ago.. i have several f2 lines made that i havent popped yet.. other projects bubbling away and so they been shelved for when i win the lottery and have a few spare fields .. 

glad u are liking the terps - it was a major factor in selections - happy growing brother - will try get on again soon and get my www fixed !!

peace and love and the finest terps !
