Hi all managed to find some strong garden wire today so decided to do some LST  and as my neighbours went snooping again I decide to bring her in for the day,I pushed down her upper leaves to allow the lower growth to get more light and secured her down to the pot so there's no chance of movement as her new root growth isn't fully established in the soil below yet or strong enought to handle any knocks or anything,after messing about and making the garden anti nosy neighbour IV put her back outside under the make shift Polly tunnel and she's stay there while I make the green house a little safer,makes things interesting I suppose 🤣 any way keep it Poppin see you all next Friday 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻

I’m needing to get caught up on all your grow’s developments, but it’s looking cool!  I’ve always used a shallow pan of beer for slugs in my outdoor garden.

Been slacking on the 7 day comparison but been real busy recently,we're now on week 13 from seed and both plants have stayed small and stocky which is ideal for what I'm trying to achieve.

IMG 20240702 194554
IMG 20240702 194438

 These 2 picture are from yesterday so I'll update again with some better picture of both the good shit and strawberry cough, remembering there in a basic potting soil and eco thrive mix of about 80/20  potting soil been majority I'm real happy with the out come so far pluss the weather's been shit recently and there thriving in the green house with no cares 😆so happy days 

I didn't plan to but now do plan to repot into a full eco thrive bed once the new soil lands IV had to push it back as money ran short but that's happening this week I'll use the same pots and everything just replaced the soil,once IV done that I'll leave it another week and start training again when and where I can 

See you all next Friday bringing us to week 14 from seed,keep it Poppin 👍🏻👍🏻

I was quite busy when I replied earlier on so couldn't go into nothing but,I plan to top the bb and leave her to grow naturally I'm always hands on with my plants messing around with different techniques and things so with this one I'm going to let her grow how ever nature intends,if she doesn't become to tall I may attempt to bring her indoors but considering the hight I'm working with indoors it might not be a possibility who knows,that's the plan with bigbud any way 

Iv made my mind up about the other two tho and I'm definitely bringing them indoors next week I'm going to let them settle in and let the crazy times beging but hopefully with a full rinse of and rebedded in some new fluffy eco thrive I escape with out any mini beasts getting rehomed 😆 still in the process of setting back up and prepping for indoors but I'll  update again on (Friday 19th bringing us to week 15 )from seed with some pictures and grow space updates and so on 

Keep it Poppin people 👍🏻👍🏻

Hi all think my main bonsai might die over the next few days she looks fucked man couldn't take pictures as IV lost my head and had to walk away,went to work came home went to check on her and the green house has been fully fucked with by who or what I don't know the door wasn't open but yh she was twisted and mangled like she'd been stomped on I'm fully pissed but IV tryed to save her and do what I could with the wire I had 🤞 she bounces back but I really doubt it I'll get pictures when iv calmed down and can go face it again, literally the only silver lining in the whole mess was the other plant hasnt been touched in the slightest so I'm not out the comp but not happy with what's happend I'll update when I can

@firetop95 that’s fucked mate. Could a cat or something have got in there anywhere. I have cats come over to my place all the time. I find fur on my outdoor furniture and pots pushed around.

@cookiegrow tbh I think it was my neighbour,the whole one side of my green house looked mangled like something was thrown into the one side more then anything else IV had a look on the camera and can see my neighbour fkin about with the fencing but can't see anything to clearly so can't say if it was him or not but that's my best guess, 

It's always when things are crazy that shit piles on like this 🤬🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️ gutted man she was starting to look cool and now she looks like death 😔 hopefully she pulls threw but I do highly doubt it it's a shame man. 

If she manages to survive ill be over the moon but I'm going to pop a couple more strawberry coughs for another grow try get some kinda harvest this year before I run out of time 

Keep it Poppin 👍🏻 👍🏻

@firetop95 Sorry to hear that mate, what a fuckin arse hole if it was him.

I don't suppose any of your other neighbours would have seen anything or caught it on their cameras.

Hope your plant pulls through man, and may your neighbours next shit exit like a reversing hedgehog 👍

The good shit has bushed out awesomely and my eco thrive has arrived so some time this week I'll spray her down exposing the roots re'bed  and reshape her in a new bed but same pot,she should do loads better under proper lighting,gota find a silver lining in all the bs 😅 keep it Poppin people 👍🏻 👍🏻

@green_fingers_87 I thought the same but it's been a couple days now and no change,I did think about bringing her in and seeing if that would help but the risk of contaminating the grow box isn't worth to me I can always start again,I havnt chopped her or anything tho iv left her in the green house and if she makes it bonus if not I can remove at a later date 👍🏻

Hiya Firetop - was reading through your thread thnking how cool it was, especially what you were doing with the roots which I hadn't seen done on a weed plant before, getting ready to post some praise then I got to the gutting bit. So glad there was at least some part of a happy ending with the survival of the Good Shit Uk (I'm not familiar with it - what's it's herittage, do you know?)

 

Be cool to have it under a bit of light though so maybe it's worked out well. Sorry if Imisseed it but what's your topping strategy and do you intend to keep these in extended veg, let the stem thicken and create multiple leads?

 

Wicked work man. Cool little project.

@peacefulmonkeyking  thanks growmie, my plan with the survivor 😆 is to veg for another week or 2 then flip to flower depending on growth and how much training I'm able to do to her once she's inside ,IV topped her twice already wasn't planing to top her again but things may change,root wise I'm going to train them out and expose them like I did with the 🍓 cough but a little different, 

Step 1: rinse of all soil from the roots leaving only plant matter 

Step 2: clean tray and replant in eco thrive 

Step 3: bring indoors and allow her time to adjust to new environment and lighting 

That should bring us threw the next few weeks and I'll LST and shape her the way I want when and where I can, 

That's all for now but I'll update as I go 

 

Keep it Poppin people 👍🏻 👍🏻

Week 15 from seed starts tomorrow and she's now indoors woop woop😆luckily I popped a few at the same time so I can take of where I left in a diary sense 😅😉
