Seeds: 3 x Dutch Passion #1

Germinated: 27/04/20

Medium: Westlands multipurpose compost w/ John Innes & Perlite 

Nutrients: BioBizz Fish-Mix, Bio-Bloom & Top-Max

Once the seedlings were showing a little leaf they were left in a sunny windowsill indoors until 27/05/20 when they were then transferred into their final 12L pots and left outside*. Since then I have been feeding them a 1ml/L solution of of Fish Mix with each water, (as per the BioBizz instructions) 2-3 time’s per week or as needed.

Once the girls were settled and showing at least 4 nodes I topped them and began LST. I’ve trained on three occasions, giving them around a week between each bend, and it’s now 8 weeks since germination.

 

*one of the three looked like it didn’t take root and as though it was a bit mutated. Anyway it didn’t make the repot and so I’m down to two girls.

Hey @colacody

They are galvenised ground staples which I bought from a garden centre. I read an article somewhere that recommended them; I thought they were easy to use and that they offered a simple solution to training during the early stages 🙂

I was in two minds about whether to top all the new growth on my girls but woke up this morning and decided to go for it. I figure if it doesn’t develop how i imagine it will then I’ll learn something in the process and not bother next year.

This is them before being topped:

BA3FF85F 95B9 46DB 8071 68100E30D1F7
9F816B1E F7BC 4C3B 89AE BB5A4B1A574C
B5BC8F64 DF1D 42A6 BEC9 9BE35266876F

And this is them post-topping:

D6E51E7F 4A19 42BD 82CF 4054ABE6831E
5B41CF28 D446 4220 A160 C9F428EAA4F8
50DB6460 F077 4260 824F 9FD17AB94E5E
6440B3AD A22D 4886 A9F6 CFD4EF1AE9FE

Topped 13 sites in total: 

ECB89248 5770 4D3F 8179 052ACF7643C6

The weather is forecasted for nothing but hot sunshine for the next 2-3 weeks so should be a good few weeks for the girls to bounce back and get some new growth going.

Hi @macky, yeah I was quite nervous topping so much! 🤣 

However they turn out, it should at the very least be interesting 😏

Day 64

 

After the nail-biting decision to top all 13 main growth sites last week I’m happy to say that both girls look like they’re doing alright. It took them a few days to get going but since then there’s been steady new growth coming through.

E5905049 F138 4225 B0EA 86D9DCE989ED
08580AF8 4CFE 4B77 A3D5 25DCE42B948B
B6648776 C192 4EE8 9368 793B71D63AFE

 

I’ll probably give them another week or so of growth and then I’ll up their feed by an extra 0.5ml per litre. I also PH tested my water the other day and found it to be a bit on the high side (7.5-8.0). I ordered some PH reducer and amended it to about 6.3-6.5, so hopefully the girls will enjoy having easier access to their nutrients from now on.

I also built this on the weekend...

16945879 8BCC 4A87 9918 ACA8489B1423

 

After a hail storm early on, that peppered around 50% of the fan leaves, and some heavy wind/rain this past week, I felt like I needed something to give them a bit of protection when necessary.

That’s all for now folks!

Thanks @colacody

I actually bought a PH reducer but I already have a bottle of organic cider vinegar in the cupboard so will definitely opt for that next time 👍🏼

Ferts-wise I’m using BioBizz’s organic outdoor pack - Fish Mix, Bio Bloom and Top Max.

Day 73

It’s been a fairly pants week and a half of weather here; limited sun and a lot of rain and heavy winds. Building a small, lean-to green house a couple of weeks back it seems was quite fortuitous! 😅 Managed to keep them mostly dry which meant I could carry on with their feeding cycle uninterrupted.

I’m now giving them 1.5ml/L of the FishMix and will continue with that for about another week before increasing to 2ml/L. I’ll then steadily increase up to about 3ml/L for the remainder of the veg.

Here they are at Day 69:

4F0F8B42 E9CA 4256 B886 44CB4DA51285
5AD28922 40FB 4374 8BB6 B24B63EB7D18
444A9295 435E 430D A328 5B5B8D0DCC87

And again at Day 71 after doing a bit of LST to open them up a little:

EDB73518 A4E2 42D2 885F DB01F73CA1CE
6AABF93E DC2E 467D B26D 2077C2590BAC
FF829186 BE15 47D4 A947 C02A85D958EC
C1D25821 3820 4E81 94F4 332461CC5A03

And this is them today on Day 73:

3167A992 D747 49EE 97B9 834C49803E7C
DBA0CE37 4952 455F 9486 3B1B49C75B5B
10A3A041 78F2 460F 9C1E 0DBA02B97E7C

Filling out nicely now, starting to look like ‘70’s Porn Bushes’ 😁

Day 84

Had a fairly sunny week and half here and the girls have been making the most of it, stretching upwards and outwards since my last post.

Feeding is now at 2ml/L of the Fish Mix which I’ll be increasing to 2.5ml/L later this week and then up to 3ml/L around the start of August.

From there I’ll just be making sure the colas are nicely spread out, perhaps doing a bit of defoliation heading into August, while also keeping an eye out for first signs of flowering.

................................................

Here they are at Day 75 after a little LST: 

7C293C58 939D 4128 8FE3 1C429DE622F5
9E478240 A4CC 4E07 94A7 812C3FEEFBD4
3B146A07 D3CF 451A 8DBD A3C7AADFAC83

 

And again at Day 81:

D9326ABF 1D99 428F 8431 A1A5D9D6EB52
EA633082 12A1 4410 AF01 B8540E93640C
224DD194 7EDA 4A54 B3CC 7CA5A6381045

 

And finally today at Day 84:

B502AD74 3D93 4FA7 A835 90E30C890124
37C80934 5F3D 4BE6 B476 455812357C48

Thanks @colacody!

Appreciate the feedback, it’s my first time growing under the big light in the sky and also trying any kind of training. Really enjoying the whole process 🙂

I’m based in the South-East of the UK. How about yourself?

How it should be! 
Hopefully the UK will follow suit and stop criminalising the cultivation of something natural.

Lime green new growth? 

Just want to check in with peeps about lighter, lime green new growth on my plants. 

89BF624F 346E 4856 ABFB F247E41BBC1B
7567EF2B 930B 4B05 BB9E 81F8911EFC4C

Is this normal? 

If not, is it some kind of deficiency?

Could it be the recent cooler nights?

Do I need to do anything?

Many thanks! 🙏🏼

@gggrowboy ya just as macky said there....the new growth is pale and then fills in with nitrogen....very healthy plants there. My outdoors grew so fast and big this year that they would suck nitrogen from the bottom leaves to maintain the speed of growth which is a common issue in bigger plants which was amended with some nitrogen rich fertilizers. In your case....watch the bottom leaves for signs of yellowing leaves but right now I wouldn't change a thing. Your doing great!🙂
