Week 11 of the OG Kush SCROG Grow Series

Week 3 of Flower + Adding Grape Bud Sweetener


 
 

What up GreenBox Growers and welcome back for another exciting update to be OG Kush Screen of Green Grow series! Now today kicks off week 11 of the overall grow or also week 3 of flower, and now we are pretty much officially in the thick of the flowering phase. So we are getting some really tremendous bud Development Everyday and I am very excited, and I am very excite the results that we are getting! So for the rest of this grow pretty much what we are going to be doing is lowering those lights a little bit each day or slowly over the course of each week and then we are also like I've been talking about, going to continue with doing a little bit of defoliation here and there. 

One big change that we are going to make starting this week is we are going to begin adding that grape bud sweetener to every watering now instead of just the nutrients feeding. So we will go into more details about them today's update and that pretty much covers the intro for this week's episode. So now that you know what we are doing in today's video, let's get started with day one of the week!

 Alright so like I was saying, we are here for the first day of week 11 again day 1 of week 3 of flower. And a bud growth is just tremendous as I was explaining in the intro. Like I was saying, pistols or just continuing to fill out really nicely at all of the bud sites and it is not just happening at the very top nodes. It is going down all the way to below the canopy to those lowest nodes. So let me just show you guys that down below here, and you can see those lollipoppings are holding up really nicely, and we are about three weeks out almost so it is doing really well.

 Today plants are ready for their next watering and that is going to be the first plant watering since the last nutrients feeding, there's going to be two gallon split between all four of the plants and as I was mentioning or touching on in the intro as we are going to start adding be Bud sweetener. Or the grape Bud sweetener to every watering, and it is going to be at 1.5 teaspoons per gallon of water. So since I have two gallons going here I just added three teaspoons, we're one tablespoon of the grape sweetener. Now also today we are going to be shaking up those TNB Naturals CO2 canisters, and then also I will be lowering the lights another inch each.

 So that is just going to bring them a little bit closer because the plants are reacting really well to the last lowering, it has been about 2 or 3 days now so it is definitely time to lower again. We want to be really aggressive with that because that is what is really going to help us maximize those yields at this point. We have done everything else that we can and this is really what is in our control from here on out to maximize yields. Is too you know a jesting this height, and again we don't want to do it too quickly as I have always said, because if you do it will stress the plants out, so that is why we are waiting a few days, letting the plants adjust to the new height.

And then going from there. Now before I go I want to show you guys I have hooked up my new AC Infinity ducting fan. You might have noticed that I took out the humidity and temperature reader and the reason for that is I've got this cool little setup mounted on the wall right here. First of all what it is going to do is control the speed of my inline fan be right there. What that is for is if you guys have noticed for using a carbon filter, when you turn that on and close the tent you'll notice the walls kind of suck in. 




And it kind of minimizes the amount of area you have to grow in. The reason the walls second is because there is a negative pressure and the air is being pulled out faster than it is being pulled in through the vents. So adding this ducting fan to blow air in Faster we'll hopefully lower that negative pressure making it to the walls go back out. Now what is also cool is we have thermostat that reads the temperature and humidity in here. And then it plugs into my little wall mount right there so I can get the readings, and you should be able to see it yeah that is it right there with the black wire and the silver tip. 

That is what is reading the temperature and humidity, and I just have it set up right at the top of the canopy because that is where you want to measure from, because that is where the biggest buds are going to be developing. So you can see we have temperature, humidity on there and then of course I can control the fan speed and settings from here. So that is a new little thing that I have set up to help with preventing that negative pressure so the walls don't so I can as tightly. Or I guess so that pretty much concludes today's update, so I am going to go ahead and do that plane watering with the grape sweetener mixed in. And then I will see you back here in 24 hours for day 2 of week 11, all right peace!

All right GreenBox Growers, so we are back here for another exciting update with the OG Kush plants! Not today is day 2 of week 11 and as you can see the flower growth is just continuing to excel each and every day, and for today's update it is going to be a pretty simple one. We are going to be doing a watering today but it is going to be the small watering that we do in between the larger ones just to hold the plants over until then. So today I've got to spray bottles worth of water mixed up in this water bottle here and then I added one teaspoon of the grape sweet by Botanicare. So like I said just the many watering that we do in between the big ones, just to kind of supplement the plants and tide them over so they don't get to dried out. 

And like I had mentioned yesterday, we are adding the grape sweet to every watering now just to really get that flavor and smell going. Besides that we are going to be shaking up the CO2 canisters and not today but probably tomorrow or the day after, I will be lowering the lights another inch. You really want to get down to probably the 12, around the 12 to 10 range from the tops where you really want the distance to be around 10 to 12 in from the tops of the buds as we get towards the middle late stage of the flowering stage. And again that is just for maximum density as well as development, and that is also so we always get the best results possible. Now with defoliation like I've been saying there isn't just going to be one defoliation that we do. 

Instead it is just going to be a little bit here and there as we go along, so the goal is, you want your plants to be like these ones in the front here. Where you can pretty much see those main tops all the way down to the bottom and through the canopy. It doesn't get super bushy in the middle there and you can still kind of see the outlines those buds as you go down like so. Reason being is that allows or light to penetrate all the way down to the bottom of the canopy and again that gets us maximum yields, maximum development at maximum quality. Also it prevents larfy nugs from developing. 

So for example I will probably be doing a little deflation in this area of the plant where this back right plant just because you can see it is pretty crowded once you get towards the scrog net there. The middle of the canopy, besides that the rest of the plants are looking pretty good, maybe a little cleaning up on the back left. And then just a very minimal amount on the front too but like I said we are looking really good. 

The way the leaves are kind of pointing up towards the light, that is good at shows they're really happy and healthy. And the leaves just tend to do this especially during the flowering phase when they are in especially good health and conditions. Now before I do that watering today, just one last thing I want to cover and that is temperature and humidity. So let's just head over do the AC Infinity wall mount here. It is really important for those top-notch results and those dense yields, that you have the canopy right around 75° Fahrenheit during the day and then 69 degrees Fahrenheit during the night. It can be 67 to 69, that range works just fine.

 Or humidity you always want to be around 50 to 55%, right now just a little bit higher because I have the inline fans turned off for filming so it is not super loud. But once we do have those on and the tent is closed up it is usually around. I would say does usually around the 53% range on average. Just one more quick good look at the canopy they're in this thing it really makes things convenient having this wall now because I don't have to open up the tent and then grab the thing, the temperature and humidity reader I had hanging from the ceiling. 

I just open the door to the bedroom, look at the wall not right there and I can read it in two seconds. So now that you guys know what we are doing and today's update I'm going to go ahead and do the mini watering with the group Sweet in it and then I will see you guys back here in 24 hours for day 3 of the week. And also don't forget to shake up those CO2 canisters if you are using them. Alright peace Growers!

What up GreenBox Growers and welcome back for Day 3 of week 11. Now today the plants are ready for their next watering and that is going to be the second plain watering since our last nutrient feeding! today I have two gallons mixed up and it is just plain water with the grape sweet by Botanicare added in, I mixed it in at 1.5 teaspoons per gallon of water. And so since I have two gallons of water of course, so that means I added in the equivalent of 3 teaspoons which is also one tablespoon. 

So again two gallons mixed up here with the grape sweet by Botanicare, we are going to be splitting that between all four of the plants. And as always you can see the defoliation and the lollipopping is holding up really nicely. Of course we are going to be shaking up our two CO2 canisters in here. I already did that earlier today and it is best to do that early in the morning once the lights come on just so they have that CO2 while lights are on. If you shake it up right when the lights are about to go off it is not as useful as they don't really use the CO2 at night. 

You can see the plants are still developing some really nice buds all the way around, and again the smell the second I turn that carbon filter off. The smell just starts billowing out of the tent. So just getting really strong, noticeably stronger each day. Today I will also be lowering the lights one in each. So that's again our goal is to just start lowering those until we get as close as possible to the plants for maximum Bud development. And besides that that is pretty much all we are doing today. So I'm going to go ahead and do that watering and then we will see you back here in twenty-four hours for day 4 of the week, alright peace growers! 

Alright so we are back here for day 4 of the week and we are actually going to be doing one of our many waterings today. All I have added is to spray bottles worth of water into the bucket and then I added one teaspoon of the grape sweet by Botanicare because of course we are doing that every watering now that we are in the flowering phase. You can see there's a lot of good growth in terms of Bud development going on down below the scrog, it is a little bit larfy and airy at this point. So we are going to do some defoliation on the upper part of the canopy today to expose more light down to those lower parts of the canopy and those lower nodes.

 Besides that we are going to be shaking up those CO2 canisters and the plants are really happy as you can see with the lowering of the light from yesterday. So probably tomorrow or the day after we will be lowering again another inch. Let me just give you guys a good shot of the bud development, you can tell they are bigger everyday. Noticeably bigger of course. And I probably won't be taking any leaves or defoliating all of the plants, probably just mainly this back left one. And then just a few here and there from like these two other ones on the outside because like you can see in some parts, the leaves are just blocking the lower parts of the canopy. Here's a good example of a node or a bud that is not getting as developed as it could be just because it was shaded.

 I actually just exposed this one two more light as of yesterday because I did clip a few leaves then and that is another thing I wanted to mention. You don't want to remove too many at a time from the plants because now that they are in the flowering phase these plants are extra sensitive and any stress that you add will lower yields as well as the quality of your bud. So careful about that. So yeah that is pretty much it for today's update, again it is day four, I'm going to go ahead and do that Blaine watering with the grape sweet in there and then do a little light defoliating on some of the plants. And then we will be back here for day 5 of the week, Alright Peace!

Welcome back Growers for the fifth day of this week, as you can see here the buds are filling out really nicely but you guys already know that so I just want to show you guys the new growth that we've got going in terms of flower development since yesterday.  It is filling out really nicely all the way through out the canopy there, or on all four plants. And of course pretty much all the way down throughout the canopy it is developing really well. You can tell it tapered off a little bit as you get below the second layer of the scrog net, this bottom layer that is. But as I have been defoliating, I have noticed now that there is more development going on at those lower bud sites.

So that is very exciting and you can start to see the outlining shapes of the buds taking  form here as they fatten up around the branches. And pretty soon here they are going to start taking over and encompassing the leaves so you don't even really see those anymore. So for today's update we are going to be doing our next watering and that is our third plain watering since our last nutrients feeding. You can see the soil is pretty dry so the plants are ready for that watering and I've got two gallons mixed up here to split between all four of the plants. And again I am adding 1.5 teaspoons per gallon of water of the grape sweet by Botanicare to help with the flavor and smell. 

So since I have two gallons mixed up that means this is 3 teaspoons of the grape sweet which is also the equivalent to 1 tbsp. All right guys so I will be doing that watering, I've already shaken up the CO2 canisters but don't forget to do that if you are using them. And then for the light I am going to keep it at the height It is at right now but tomorrow I am definitely going to be lowering both of the lights 1 inch. So as you can see I've got a little pile of leaves right here that is from the defoliation that I did today. It is a light defoliation, I just took a little bit like a handful of leaves from each plant.

 But again everyday you should just comb through your plants, checking on each top to see if there is any nodes getting covered up by a large fan leaves. Or even if it is just a small fan leaf, if it is laying on top of a bud site or a node then you want to remove it. So that is what I've been doing and that is the result of today's work, so I'm going to go ahead and give them that watery now and then I will see you guys back here in twenty-four hours for the next day where we are going to lower these lights again! 

All right guys are we are back here for day 6 of the week and this is going to be a pretty quick update. So first off I lower the lights by 1 inch today, so we are just one inch closer, each light that is, to the plants. Besides that, all I did was give to spray bottles worth of water split between all four of the plant and I mixed in one and a half teaspoons of the grape sweetener by Botanicare into that water. 


So 2 spray bottles worth watered between all four of the plants or split between all four. And I already did that watering as well as the lowering of the lights by an inch each. So I just wanted to give you guys a quick close up on how the buds are looking, you can see they are developing really nicely each day so these are going to be some massive colas in a few weeks here. So that pretty much sums up a 6 of this week and I will be back here in twenty-four hours for the last day of the week. All right peace Growers!

Okay Growers so welcome back for the last day of week 11, and as you guys just saw from that intro shot we are getting some really nice and good sized Bud development! So not only are the pistols really filling out nicely but you can see the different nodes or Bud sites are starting to connect up and down the Sam's which is really good. Because that just shows good signs of large dense yields. For today's update we are going to be doing our next watering and this is actually going to be a nutrient feeding today.

 So it is really important we are going to be mixing up 2 gallons at full strength and we will be splitting that between all four of the plants. 4 the watering it is going to be the week 7 mix from the fox farm Dirty Dozen which is the third mix of flower nutrients. And like I said we will be doing that at full strength. We will double what is on here because we are doing two gallons and this is per gallon. I just want to give you guys a heads up that we are going to be doing another one of the sledgehammer flushing this year coming up in the next nutrient watering. So after this one I will probably do to plan waterings and then we will do it this flush mix. 


Same thing as what we did here after that last mix of the vegetative nutrients, but they had me do it throughout the flowering stage as well. Now we are still doing 1.5 teaspoons per gallon of water of the Cal Mag as well as the grape sweet. So that means a total of 3 teaspoons were one tablespoon of each are mixed into this mixture right here. Now besides that we are going to be shaking up the CO2 canisters, plan seem to be really adapting well to the lowered lights from yesterdays lowering. So probably going to lower them another inch either tomorrow or the day after. Now you can really see those buds starting to fill out or you can see the outlines of the colas going all the way up and down.

 And pretty much to I would say about 4 in from below the lower layer of the scrog net here, that is where the bud development is pretty much stopping. So we've got about 2 feet of solid Bud development going on here in this canopy. I've got to say a lot of that is due to the good defoliation we've been practicing throughout this bro, so we want to stay on top of that. It doesn't look like there's any need to defoliate today, but tomorrow we will probably be back on it. So that is pretty much it for today's update, or one quick thing before I go. So I showed you guys in the intro, I will show you guys the temperature and my humidity reader right here from my AC Infinity inline Duct Fan. What has really helped as well for us getting these awesome yields or this awesome bud development so far, is we are really sticking to this ranges of temperature and humidity. 

So it does not getting too cold or too hot during the day and humidity is not getting too high or too low. That is really important, so just a reminder be sure to stay in these ranges during the flowering phase especially, is even that much more important. For temperature it is going to be around 72 Fahrenheit to 77 fahrenheit during the day. I like to keep it at an average of 75 degrees Fahrenheit. And then at night you can be right around 68 degrees Fahrenheit to 69 degrees Fahrenheit. It is okay to be a little cooler at night because that actually replicates the winter months were the plants naturally grow outdoors. 

For humidity during this stage oh, you want to be right around 55%, 50% to 55% so you can see we are right around that range. Once you get to 60% were a little higher, that is going to be too high for the flowering stage. You will be all right right around 60% to 65% during vegetation, but you don't want that during flower because that can lead to issues such as Bud rot. Now it will drop a few percent once we turn the carbon filter and the inline fans back on, but for now it is still pretty much in that good range. So again that is it for today's update, we are going to go ahead and do that nutrient feeding now and then I will see you guys back here in 24 hours or the start of week 12 of the OG Kush grow series. Alright Peace Growers! 

Okay Growers so that officially concludes the 11th week of the OG Kush screen of green grow series!  And of course that was also week 3 of flower so we are probably about halfway to almost halfway through the flowering phase. So we are going to see some really nice Bud Development coming up here now that the buds are starting to or they're not starting to finish up but they are getting close to being like I said about mid way through. So we are going to see some considerable changes this coming week. And hopefully pretty soon the buds are going to connect to all the way up and down those branches so we can start seeing some good-sized colas taking shape. I will be back shortly with the week 12 or week 4 of flower episode of this grow series. In the meantime I just want to thank you guys for watching this week's video, I really hope you enjoyed it and until next time…

Happy Growing!!!

Chemdawg Beginner Grow Series: WK 4 Vegetation

Adding the SCROG Net + TNB Natural CO2 Can!


What up Growers and welcome back for Week 4 of Vegetation to that Chemdawg beginner grow series! Now it is looking like this is going to be another basic weak as we are just going to be following up with some more low-stress training as well as doing at that nutrient and watering schedule. Yes if the plants continue to grow at this rate and vegetative growth, I think by the end of this week or maybe beginning of next week depending oh, they should be ready for that scrog net. So we will just play it by ear but they are definitely moving along nicely.Yep and like I said, we are just going to continue with that low stress training just in preparation for that scrog net. So now that you guys know what we are doing in this week's video, let's get started with day one of the week!

Hey guys here we are, it is day one of the week the plants are doing great as we were talking about. They are getting some great vegetative growth, really building their base, soil is still moist today so we are not going to be doing a watering. But we will be doing a little bit of LST, we will do a misting and then we will raise the light 5% right now just because they are responding so well to that increase in power. So that just about does it guys, we are going to get the LST and misting going and then we will see you tomorrow for the second day of the week.

Hey guys, welcome back to the chemdawg grow series, it is day two of the week everything is looking good here. We are moving along in the vegetative cycle nicely, we have a lot to do today. First off we are going to be raising the light 5% again on the vegetative dial so that will bring us up to 90% on the vegetative dial for that light. We are going to be doing a watering, this is our first plain watering since the last nutrients feeding. We will do a misting of course, and then we are going to be adding in these TNB Naturals CO2  canisters and we will be replacing the exhale homegrown CO2 bag.

 So to set up your CO2 canister, you just have to fill it with a liter of lukewarm water. You'll want to screw off the top cap, fill it with a liter of lukewarm water and then take off the sticker and you just need to uncover that Central hole there. And then screw on the top cap, cover that hole with your finger and Shake It Up. And you will hear it start hissing oh, you want it to be hanging like the exhale bag is. You want it to be just above the plants because CO2 is a dense heavier gas, so it is going to drop over the plants if you put it right above it.

 If you go below the plants it may not expose them to the CO2 as well. All right so with the watering we are going to be using almost a whole gallon with them and that will be split between the two plants. So that is important to know that, they are definitely drinking up a lot more water so you just have to slowly increase the amount you give them. All right so that about does it for Day 2 you guys and we will see you back tomorrow for day 3!

Hey guys welcome back to the chemdawg grow series, it is day three of the week and the plants are really thriving. I was just telling Dylan how healthy the leaves look, they look really thick and just substantial. So I am really excited with these ones as well, the soil is not dry but you can tell the plants are definitely starting to drink up the water much more quickly now. Which is exciting as well because they are growing and moving along. So today we are going to raise the light 5% on the vegetative dial, we will go ahead and do that right now and we are at about 85% right now and now that we are raising we will be at 90%.

 So 90% is where we are at at the vegetative dial,  100% still on the seedling dial. So today we are just going to be doing the LST and the misting, but don't forget to shake up your TNB Naturals CO2 canister. Just cover the hole with your finger and Shake It Up and that is all you have to do. All right guy said that does it for day 3, we will go ahead and do that LST and a misting and we will shake up the canister and then we will see you back tomorrow for day 4! 

Hey guys welcome back to the chemdawg grow series, it is day four of the week in the plants are looking awesome, they are definitely ready for a watering as the soil is pretty dry. So we are going to go ahead and do a watering today, we will also be doing an LST training session today, we are going to be doing a misting, we always want to shake our tnb Naturals CO2 canister, and we are going to be raising our light 5%. So let's go ahead and start with that, we are on the vegetative dial here and because we were at around 95% yesterday we will be at 100% now on the vegetative dial. So now the seedling dial and the vegetative dial are at 100%.

 Let's go ahead and get that CO2 canister shaking and be sure to cover the center hole on the top of the lid, and then Shake vigorously for just two or three seconds and then you will hear it hissing. And that's just the Compressed Gas escaping. Okay guys so we will go ahead and get some LST going on these plants, The Watering in the misting, and we will not be doing a full gallon, just a 3/4 gallon between the two plants. And remember this is the second plain watering since their last nutrient feeding. Okay guys that does it for day for and I will see you tomorrow for day 5!


Hey guys, welcome back to the chemdawg grow series. It is day five of the week in the plants are looking good, they are moving along nicely so today we will be doing another round of LST and the soil is still moist so no watering today. We will just do a normal misting, and let's go ahead and get the TNB Naturals CO2 canister shaking. Remember to always cover the center hole with your finger just so it can build up pressure as you are shaking. So now we’re going to go ahead and get that LST and misting taken care of guys, and then we will see you back here tomorrow for day 6!

Hey guys welcome back to the chemdawg grow series, it is day 6 of the week in the plants are looking good. They are looking thirsty though so we will be giving them a watering today. It is going to be our third plain watering since the last nutrient feeding, and we are going to be doing 3/4 of a gallon split between the two. You also want to go ahead and shake your CO2 canister today, just cover the center hole and shake and then you will hear that hissing afterwards. 

We are also going to be doing a round of LST today, and that is important to do that today because tomorrow we are actually probably going to be doing the scrog net and we will probably be putting that in place and also our first-round of defoliation. So make sure to do your last round of regular LST before we get those in place and then of course just you a misting today to wrap it all up. So that is it for today guys, we will go ahead and get started with the LST, the watering, and then the misting of course and then we will see you tomorrow for the last day of the week.

Hey guys, welcome back to the chemdawg grow series. It is the last day of the week and today is a big day, we are going to be adding the scrog net! It is going to go up about 3in above the plants and then we will also be doing a defoliation. This defoliation will be be about 20% defoliation. With this one we are focusing on the big leaves and the leaves that are resting on top of others, and the point really for both of these especially with the defoliation. Is to get light down to the bottom of the plant so those lower tops can kind of get some growth and reach the upper tops. And the scrog is going to spread out the bigger tops that are already pretty tall and help make room for the tops beneath to grow up as well. 

So both of those processes really are to ultimately just get and more even growth a big bush ear plant.  So no watering today, no LST oh, we just watered yesterday and then we are going to go ahead and Shake our tnb natural CO2 canister here.  Just to get some extra CO2 in the air for our plants, and then we are going to go ahead and get this defoliation going, we will go ahead and get the scrog net on and I will show you exactly how to do that and then let's go ahead and get this misting done for you guys so you can see that. Alright guys we will see you for next week! 

Ok GreenBox Growers, that officially concludes week 4 to the chemdawg beginner grow Series. So now that we have the first defoliation under your guys's belt, you're going to see a lot more growth concentrated in those top areas, and now that we have that scroggin place really the goal is to get all of those tops growing into those squares. Like I said before we are going to get those lower tops growing upwards and just getting a more even Bush of a plant. So once that happens we will be able to flip the plants into flower. So now our goes like what he is saying is to fill up that scrog net, and as always I just want to thank you guys for watching this week's video. We really hope you enjoyed it, and until next time…

 Happy Growing!!!

WK 2 Flower OG Kush Grow

Week 10 Overall for the OG Kush SCROG Grow


 
 

What up GreenBox Growers, and welcome back for the second week of flower to the OG Kush Screen of Green Grow series! Now this is also week 10 overall for the entire grow series, and right now the plants are looking absolutely fantastic. So for the rest of the flower phase it is going to be pretty simple and that we are really just going to be maintaining a proper temperature and humidity range for the grow room. And then besides that we really just want to make sure that we are giving the right watering and nutrients feeding schedule. 

Finally we are also going to be slowly lowering the LED lights towards the plants over this. And what that is going to do is help with intensifying the lights which will help grow larger denser buds. So for this week's video we are just going to be maintaining those conditions, working on the nutrient and watering schedule and then also probably a week from now we will be doing another defoliation on the plants. So now that you know what we are doing in this week's video, let's get started with day one!

 Here we are for the first day of the week and it is just going to be a really quick update as there isn't really too much to do. You can see the plants are looking really healthy and happy, the way the leaves are all kind of pointing up towards the light, that shows that they are really in good shape and that is what your plan should look like when they are healthy and perky. So we can see there is a little bit more pistol development going on at the maintop there, probably by the end of this week it is going to be a lot further along just kind of a slow transition in the beginning. But I can definitely tell it is starting to pick up just from a quick glance at the overall canopy.

 Now course we are going to be shaking up the CO2 canisters and I am not going to be lowering the lights yet today but probably in another two days we will be lowering them a few inches. Other than that I am just going to be doing a small watering of plain water today. Probably about a spray bottle and a half split between all four of these plants. And then finally like I was telling you guys, we are probably going to be doing a defoliation on here, one of the two defoliations we are going to be doing during the flowering phase. And that is probably going to be another six to seven days from now. Okay so that concludes the day one update 4-week kind of this grow series, and I will see you guys back here in 24 hours!

What up Growers, we are back here another day later and the plants are really starting to take off in terms of their flower growth. You can see this guy right here is probably one of the furthest ahead but you can see its pistol are really starting to come out there. So probably in another week's time these guys, these plans aren't even going to be recognizable because they will have so much development on them. So at this point we are going to be giving them a watering and they are ready for the next watering today.

 And that is going to be their second plane watering since the last nutrient feeding, and we are splitting 2 gallons between all four of these plants as usual. You can see the stems in the stocks have really thick and up over the course of this grow. Getting some really sturdy growth going on down below.  And that is really important because you need that in order to support those big dense buds up top.  So really happy on that And you can see that lollipopping that we did about two weeks ago or a week and a half ago sorry, still really holding up nicely.

There isn't really any growth that has come back yet, so we will do some Maintenance trimming throughout this grow or throughout the flowering phase. sit beside that watering, just going to be shaking the CO2 canisters today, actually already have done that. And just a reminder it is important to do the CO2 shaking early in the day or early on in the light cycle. 

 Because that is when the plants use the CO2 is when the lights are on. Besides that I am probably going to finish up the second week of flower before I start lowering the lights any further, that is what I decided to do for my plan of action. And the same thing with the defoliation, I am going to wait until week 3 of flower and then that is when we will do our first defoliation of the flowering phase. So that is pretty much it for today's update, I'm going to go ahead and get that watering done for you guys and then we will see you guys back here in 24 hours for day 3 of the week! 

All right folks it is now day 3 of week 10, and not too much to do today we are just going to be giving the light watering of plain water. You know the in between of one spray bottle split between all four of the plants. And that is just to tide them over between the big waterings. Of course we will be shaking up the TNB Naturals CO2 canisters and we will be keeping the lights at the same height for now. But probably in a couple of days we will start lowering them just an inch at a time. Reason we do that is it helps get the light intensity up For the plants which will in turn allow them how to grow bigger denser buds. 

But the reason we lower it so slowly is so we don't increase the intensity too quick because that can burn and shock the plants. So you can see we are definitely in the flowering phase now, the pistols are noticeably bigger by the day come in each day I come out here you can see they are getting Fuller and Fuller. They're probably in another week's time we are going to have some decent buds going or at least a nice clusters of pistols at all of the bud sites. it is really nice with this double scrog layer, may we probably have at least 50 different tops in here, main tops, so we are going to have a lot of colas packing in this SCROG Net. 

And it is hard to imagine now but we are going to be removing more and more fully adjust we go so that is what is going to make room for those buds. Below the canopy I just want to show you guys how nice it is looking, the lollipopping is holding up really well on all four of the plants. And the deflation is allowing enough light to get down here so that even these lower tops are getting enough light to develop some buds. And also it is going to help and we do that next defoliation this coming week because it is going to allow those lower Bud sites to get even more light power. Which again will give us bigger and denser buds!  

Alright guys so that is pretty much it for today's update so what we are going to do now is go ahead and oh, I'm going to give you guys some close-ups on the tops so you can see that early flower development. And then yeah those pretty much it, don't forget to shake up the CO2 canisters if you are using them and then I will see you guys back here in 24 hours. Piece! 

Alright Growers, we are back here for the fourth day of the week, and the soil is actually really dry today so we are going to be doing our next watering. This will be our third playing watering since the last nutrient feeding and we are going to be splitting two gallons between all four of the plants. Now that means our next watering is going to be a nutrient feeding and that will be the second mix or the second time we are doing nutrient since we started the flowering phase. 


So course we will be using the flowering nutrients and right here I just want to show you guys how our lollipopping has held that and how nicely we have thinned out the canopy so that there is enough space for light as well as for a breeze to pass through there in between all of those buds that are already developing. So in a couple weeks here this is just going to be solid nug all the way up and down here, but more on that as we get closer. So besides that we are going to be shaking the tnb natural CO2 canisters of course every day. 


And then tomorrow actually we are going to be lowering these lights one inch each. So these plants are actually ready for the lights to start getting a little closer to them. So I am going to start tomorrow like I said one in for the lights lower or closer to the plants, and then after that it will probably be every two or three days we will lower then another inch. Here are some good looks at the pistols up close at the front and just a reminder as I have shown you guys busy on the buds developing, temperature range right now should be between 73 to 77 degrees Fahrenheit somewhere around there during the day. 

At night it can be a little cooler and the 68 to 69 degrees Fahrenheit range is just fine. Bring humidity or RH you want to be right around 50 to 55% during flower. Much lower or any higher and you are going to cause issues such as bud rot or mold. And that is for of course higher humidity during the flowering phase, if it is too dry and you are just going to have airy buds that don't fully develop. Okay so I pretty much concludes today's update, again it is the fourth day of the week and I am very stoked on how quickly this flower growth and early Bud development is transitioning. So I'm going to go ahead and do that third plant watering now and then we will see you guys back here at tomorrow in 24 hours for the fifth day of the week. 

We are now back here for day 5 of the week and I actually went ahead and decided to do a little cleanup on the foliage today for all of the ladies. So as you can see we actually removed some of the fan leaves but we are actually just focusing on damaged and any old yellowed leaves. Anything that looked dead and crispy or was early on in the dying phase. So we removed all of those leaves, plants are looking really good and so is the flower development. For today we are just going to be shaking up the T & B natural  CO2 canisters and we will actually be lowering the lights one in a piece. So each light is going to be one in lower or an inch closer to the tops of the plant.

And then I am also going to split a spray bottle between all four of the plants of just plain water. So we will be splitting that, just because what is going on at this point is we are ready to water basically every day. But on the off days what we are doing these smaller waterings, I'm doing the smaller watering because or the smaller amount of water because they don't really need the full watering. But if I skip this little bit of water in, they will be to dry by tomorrow by the time I am ready to give them their next watering. So this is just a little watering to kind of Tide them over until that next larger watering. All right so again shaking up the CO2 canisters, lowering the light and image or each of the lights 1 inch. We did some defoliation on the dying leaves today, and we are going to split that single water bottle of plain water between all four plants. All right guys so we are going to go ahead and get that taken care of and that I will see you back here in twenty-four hours for day 6 of the week. All right peace!

What up Growers, and welcome back for day 6 of the week. As you can see the plants are ready for their next nutrient feeding today, but before I get into what we are mixing up I just want to give you guys a quick look over the plants so you can see how well they are doing. The plants are reacting really well to that lowering of the lights we did yesterday, again it was just one inch so nothing too major but we are going to start doing that more frequently as they get adjusted to the lights faster. This one or the next lowering will probably be in two to three more days oh, I just want to make sure that the plants are okay with this distance. 

Also don't forget to shake up your CO2 canisters of course, we are getting pretty close here to being ready to remix them. Probably tomorrow is when I will be adding those refill packets to the containers. Now yesterday we also did a little bit of defoliation, just removing any leaves that looked damaged or were yellowing.  And that's just going to be a theme throughout the entire flowering phase is as you start to see leaves damage or starting to die off, you should just remove them one by one. I believe I have mentioned this before throughout the groceries but I just wanted to remind you guys that if you do notice leaves kind of disappearing throughout this series, will that is why.

 The reason for this is you do not want to do too much of a defoliation at one time with the plants during flower because it does add some Shock and any shock during the flowering phase is no good because that is kind of going to take away from your yields. And it is also going to lower the bud quality overall. So they leave here and there is much better than a bunch at one time or I'm sorry I leave here and there over the entire course of the grow or flowering phase is much better than let's say just one major defoliation over the course of the day for that whole period. 

Again today we are doing the nutrients feeding, let's show you the mix, so it is the week 6 mix from the fox farm Dirty Dozen or the second mix of the flowering phase. And of course we are doing that at full strength. We got to gallons of water mixed up here so we had to up the amount of nutrients when you gave to the appropriate levels. We are also doing 1.5 teaspoons of Cal Mag per gallon of water here just because we did have a little bit of that Cal Mag deficiency going on there earlier in the grow. And then of course now that we are in flower we are adding the grape sweet from Botanicare each nutrient feeding. And I am actually doing the grape sweet at 1.5 teaspoons per gallon of water as well.  For a total of 3 teaspoons in this mix because of course we have the two gallons.

 Alright guys I will be splitting these two gallons between all four of these plants now, and I will give you guys a quick clip of that, and then I will see you guys back here in 24 hours for the last day of the week! 

Alright Growers I would just now the last day of week 10 here and the plants are continuing to Bud out really well. So first thing for today, I actually just finished refilling the CO2 canisters, so each of them got a new refill packet added in and then we just added in one liter of lukewarm water. Shook them up, rehung them and now we are back to normal with the CO2. Besides that just wanted to show you guys the new growth that we have with the buzz, you can see it is developing a little bit each day here, and that last lowering of the light seems to be working just fine.

 So in a few days here, probably the day after tomorrow I will lower the lights another inch and today we are also going to be doing one of our mini plain waterings, just one spray bottle split between all four of the plants. So again this is the last day of week 10 which also means that concludes the second week of flower, and I am very happy this far with how much development we are getting with the bud sites for only being 2 weeks into flower. You can see not only are they developing at the very tops but there is good development going on down here at the lower parts of the canopy and even below the scrog. 

So starting tomorrow I will probably do a little more defoliation just to clear out the middle canopy area. Just to make sure enough light is getting all the way through, there is a decent amount of light getting through there right now but there can definitely be a lot more so probably tomorrow is when I will do that next defoliation. I will give you guys of course more details on that once it is time. All right so I'm going to go ahead and give them that mini watering and then I will see you guys back here in 24 hours for the start of week 11! 

Ok GreenBox Growers, So that officially wraps up week 10 overall for the OG Kush Screen of Green Grow series. Now that again that also concludes week 2 of flower which means we are about a third of the way through the flowering phase. So things are going to start developing and changing really quickly over the next few weeks here and we are going to continue with more defoliation and lowering of those lights to help with increasing yields and Bud development.  As always I want to thank you guys for watching this week's episode, I really hope you enjoyed it, and until next time 

Happy Growing!

Agent Orange Update:  Week 4 of Vegetation

Agent Orange Update: Week 4 of Vegetation

Almost ready for the SCROG Net + More LST!


Alright GreenBox Growers welcome back for week 4 vegetation for Cody's agent orange beginner grow series! So we have been seeing a lot of new top growth going on so this week we are going to be continuing with the LST with that three-finger technique. And then with a couple weeks here we will probably be ready to use this scrog. The scrog here is from Growers scrog Nets .Com, it is a double layer so it has a lower layer for the lower parts of the canopy where the tops are. I think for this setup we are just going to be using one layer but yeah it will still be really useful in the two by four tent.

 But yeah we are just going to be doing some minor LST this week though, it is just exciting and I wanted to show you guys that so you get an idea of what we will be using in the near future. Yeah so we will have the link or the week is right here on the screen to growerscrognets.com, is a really good company that I've been working with. And yeah it's going to be a really exciting week, hopefully we only need one to two more weeks of vegetation before we get that scrog net up there. And now that you guys know what we are doing in this week's video, Let's Get start with day one of the week!

Hey guys, here we are for day one of the week, the plants are looking great it really seemed to be liking that extra 5% of light power that we added. I think I need to mention that last time we went up to 25%, I need to correct that as we actually went up from 15% to 20%. Because they liked it so much, I think what we will be doing is now going up to 25%, and I think we will also be doing some minor LST because they are growing upwards but we want them to continue widening and getting more bushy. 

So we will give them some LST. Lastly the soil is pretty dry so we will be doing a plain water in. This is going to be the third plain watering since the last nutrient feeding. And then of course the usual misting for the girls, and as far as water and goes today we are going to be using a half gallon total so each of these plants will be drinking a 1/4 gallon of water. And that is going to do a guys so we are going to go ahead to a quite a bit with these plants today and then we will see you tomorrow for day two of the week!

Hey guys it is day two of the week the plants are looking really good here, they are starting to really spring up and they are also getting good and wide. The plant is filling out basically, the coloration is still good and the soil today is still pretty moist so we are just going to let it be for today. We are going to do a misting but I do want to do a round of LST first. Just to continue with getting the plants to grow outward and to help it get every top an opportunity to grow well. So let's go ahead and get some of that LST going here. And one thing I wanted to mention guys before you start with the LST is tomorrow we will probably turn up the light another 5%.

 Just because the plants seem to be really responding well to the light oh, we just want to give them time to graduate to that so tomorrow they are really wanting that extra light. And just to remind you we are on the cannagrow 200 watt Cree cob LED light here. They hooked us up with this and now we are using this light currently for this grow here on the agent orange. And you can check out their products on Amazon, just search cannagrow LED and they should pop up no problem. So I'm going to go ahead and get this LST taken care of with some misting and then that will be it for today guys.

Hey guys here we are for day three of the week, the plants are looking great and they are, you know we did some LST yesterday and they look like they are responding well to it. But I think we could probably give them a rest just because I have been going at it a lot with the LST. So I really just want to let them start growing now and not really do too much to them. 

The soil is still obviously moist so we are not going to water today but we are going to do the misting and then that will do it. And then one more thing guys actually before we get out of here, we are going to turn the light up another 5% so let me just go ahead and do that. So at this point we are all the way up to 30%. All right so that is all we did today, just a misting and then we changed the power of the light and then that will do it. We will see you tomorrow for day 4!

Hey guys here we are for day 4 of the week, the plants really look like they have grown quite a bit since yesterday. They look really full which I'm stoked to see because they were definitely needing to fill out more, and it seems like they are responding well to the light being turned up more. So I think we might actually do that again, we will go from 30% to 35% on the light. This is our cannagrow Cree cob LED we got going here, so just a reminder you will be at 35%, At the end of today. And then the soil is looking pretty dry here, so we will go ahead and do a watering today. 

And since it has been 3 playing waterings we are going to do a nutrient feeding today with our Fox Farm Dirty Dozen. So we are at week 2 of the vegetative mix for the fox farm feeding schedule, we are doing it at three-quarter strength and we are also adding some cal-mag to that. We are going to be using a half gallon of solution today for these two plants. So they will each be getting 1/4 of a gallon of solution. And then just the usual misting oh, and like I said we are turning up the light, our CanaGrow Cree cob led to 35%. And then that should do it for today guys, no LST and then we will see you back tomorrow or day 5! 

Hey guys welcome back, it is day five, the plants are looking great and as you can tell we just did a nice misting with them. So other than that today we are just going to be doing a little LST. And then also because the plants keep responding better and better to raising the light I am going to raise it another 5%. So let me just get in there oh, okay so that is another 5%. So we should be at 40% now correct, yep we are at 40% now! Looking good, so we are going to go ahead and get that LST taken care of guys and then we will see you tomorrow for day 6.

Hey guys, it is day 6 of the week, the plants are looking very nice today! Really filling out and I can tell they are getting much thicker in the stems now that they are getting higher and higher light power hello there was a time there when they were kind of looking a little leggy as I have heard Dylan say. But they are definitely getting sturdier now. The soil is still pretty moist today so we will not do any watering it, but we will do a misting. And then we are going to raise up the dial 5% so we are going up to 45% I believe. Yes we are at 45% now. And I just want to keep going cuz I really think I had these way too low in terms of light power, so I really want to get them at the right amount. And then get them to their maximum potential, okay so let's get the misting taken care of and then that will do it for today guys. So we will see you tomorrow for the last day of the week!

Hey guys, welcome back it is the last day of the week in the plants are looking great. I really am happy with how they are responding to this continual increase and light strength. So I am hoping we continue to see more increase in girth for the stems as well as bushiness in general for the plants.  Today the soil is looking pretty dry so we are going to go ahead and do a watering, we will do the same half gallon it is just going to be a plane watering, the first one since last nutrient feeding. 

We will do some LST, the plants have had a day of rest so we will go ahead and do that today. And then we will go ahead and do the misting and it is also important for you guys to know that our CanaGrow Cree Cob LED has been raised about four in just to increase the footprint it has on the plants. And as we increase the power we don't want to keep it too close to the plants as they are getting taller so it is good to just keep it at a good height. Okay guys so that does it for this week and we will see you tomorrow for the next one!

Alright Growers so the first month is officially in the books for Cody's beginner Agent Orange grow series. And as you guys could see you in that last pic, one of the tops ended up working on the other one did not. Cody do you want to elaborate on that?! Yeah so basically on the first one I did that tape was well wrapped around and it was a good length and it was basically just holding the broken part up like a splint. And it was keeping the 2 broken ends together so that the contact could kind of fit back together and heal. 

Whereas on the other one it just for some reason looked like the tape had come unraveled and so it wasn't able to hold it up for that to happen and it just basically maintained that broken spot. And eventually the top died because it wasn't getting that connection made. And yeah we could kind of see through the tape and it looked like there was kind of a gap between the part that broke off and then the base of it.

 So that is why I died in the video and then as you guys saw, the other one that was done properly is still alive and thriving so that is good. So yeah that pretty much wraps it up for this week's video but we will be back shortly for week 5. Hopefully after this coming week we will be adding the scrog net and then shortly after that we will be going into flower. So until then Happy growing! 


Happy Growing!

WK 1 of Flower OG Kush SCROG Grow

Transitioning to the Flower Phase!


 
 

What is up GreenBox Growers, and welcome back for week 9 of the OG Kush Screen of Green Grow series! Now today we are actually flipping the plants into the flowering stage Converse that also means this is day one of week one of flower. So get excited for this week's video because that means we are officially transitioning into the flowering phase. And I would also like to mention that the plants have recovered perfectly from the lollipopping and defoliation yesterday.

 And we already have some tops that have grown through that second layer of the scrog net. So in this week's video I am going to be covering all of the changes you need to make to your grow room and conditions. As well as the setup, so it is ideal for the flowering phase. All right so now that you guys know what we are doing in this week's video, let's get started with day one of the week!

Okay Growers so here we are at the OG Kush tent for day 1 of week 9. So as I was saying, we are going to be flipping the light schedule to the flowering phase starting tonight. So that actually means tomorrow will officially be the first day of flower. Now before I get into the details about that, I just want to cover what we will be doing in today's video. So first of all plants are ready for their next watering, the soil is dry. So it will normally be our second plane watering but as you can see in between the last flower or I'm sorry the last nutrient mix of the vegetative stage and then the first flowering mix of nutrients of The Dirty Dozen. 

You will see there is a recommended Sledgehammer flushing. So that is what we will be doing today, normally this would be the second playing watering but we will be doing the sledgehammer mix. I've got two gallons mixed up that will be split between all four plants. And I am mixing it up at two teaspoons per gallon of water of the sledgehammer mix. Now this is just going to help us flush out the soil of any buildup of minerals or salts. So that once we start that flowering phase, that will not be an issue.

 So after this watering, the next watering will be that 3rd plain watering and then after that we will start the first flower nutrient mix. And I mentioned this earlier in the series but we are also going to be adding this Bud flavor enhancer which is the grape Sweet. It Is the grape flavor from the sweet line which is by Botanicare. So this is a completely optional item to add to your list. But it is great for adding an added flavor to your buds. They have other flavors as well but I decided to go with grape.

Some more details on that during the next nutrients feeding. All right so besides that we will do a light misting today but this is going to be the very last one for the entire grow. Some Growers like to miss their plant still during the flowering face for the first two weeks, week to two weeks. But I don't like to do that so my recommendation is to stop misting day 1 of flower. We will be shaking up the TNB Naturals CO2 canisters, and we will continue refilling them as needed. Because even during the flowering phase, the CO2 canisters are going to be exceptionally useful. Actually more useful them during the vegetation stage because they are going to help fatten up those nugs as well as give bigger development up top above the canopy. 

That's alright so that covers everything for what we are doing to the plants today. Now let's talk about the changes we need to make for the flower cycle. So first of all I am going to be, tonight once the lights turn off I will be changing the light cycle to 12 hours on 12 hours off. Because that is how you force your plants to flower if they are photoperiods. Now tomorrow I will also be turning on the 2nd 300 watt electric sky LED, and I will be raising them both as high as possible and kind of angling them out words so we don't stress the plants out again like last time. But now that we are in flour we definitely want to get more power, more light power in here so the plants don't stretch too much and so we get full dense buds developing.

 Now besides the light change for the flowering stage you will want to have a different temperature and humidity range so for temperature you want to be right around 73-75 degrees Fahrenheit during the day and at night you want it to be a little cooler. Right around 68 to 69 degrees Fahrenheit, and that is just to mimic the winter conditions outside because in nature cannabis actually flowers during the winter months. So that is also why you shorten the light schedule, to help me make those conditions as well. Now for humidity you will want to lower that a little bit as well, into the 50 to 55% range. 

And the reason for that is because during flower it is a little easier to develop mold on the plants so lowering that humidity will help tremendously. So besides that, that pretty much covers all the changes you will make for the flowering stage. After this clip we are going to go ahead and do that flushing, no LST today. We are just going to let them recover, I did want to show you guys though how well they look or how healthy and happy they look today after that lollipopping and defoliation We did yesterday. And in fact, there is already a couple I would say like five or six tops that are just poking through that second layer of the scrog net.

 So we don't want them to stretch too much more than that so that second light will help cure that issue, and yeah that is pretty much it. So let's go ahead and empty that flushing now, and I will see you guys back here for day 2 of the week. 

Alright so we are back here for the second day of the week which also means it is officially day 1 of flower. So like I said yesterday, I switched over the light schedule to that 12/12 flowering cycle starting last night. And actually already the plants have pushed out some pistols right at the very top nodes. Let me see if I can get you guys some close-ups on that. But it isn't really focusing okay there we go, you can see right there right around that talk growth there are those white pistils towards the bottom coming out.

And we've got those coming out of all of the tops for I would say the first couple of nodes at least. So I'm very happy with that, it is only day one flower and we are already seeing some results. So besides that we are going to be shaking up the tnb naturals CO2 canisters of course, and actually the plants, yesterday we watered them with that Sledgehammer Flush but today we are just going to be doing that little plain watering that I do on the off days. Just to tide them over. So I will probably just be splitting one of these spray bottles worth of water between all four plants.

 Not like I was saying yesterday I have turned on the second Electric Sky 300 watt LED, but what I have done is first of all I have raised them both all the way up as high as possible. And then as you can see I've kind of got them tilted so they are not straight down flat, they are kind of angled so the light isn't going straight down on the plants but it is kind of going out and away from them so that they can adjust to the second light without getting stressed out.

 So we will slowly flatten out the light and angle it less and less as they get used to it and then we will begin lowering it as they are further into flower. And then I will see you guys back here in 24 hours for day 2 of flour, which is also day 3 of the week. All right peace!

What up Growers, so we are back here now for day 3 of the week and ladies are looking better than ever. And actually that also means it is now day 2 of flower. So ladies are actually ready for their next watering and as you can see for whatever reason the back left plant is looking especially under-watered. But that is a little surprising just because that is one of the smaller plants in the tent and as you can see all of the other ones are just fine. So I'm thinking it is because we have the second LED turned on in here so it is just adding a little more heat and energy for the plants. So it might have just ranking up the water a little faster. 

So for this watering we are going to be doing two gallons of playing water and this is the third watering since the last nutrient feeding. So what that means is the next nutrient feeding or I'm sorry the next watering will be our first nutrient feeding of the flowering phase. So very excited for that because we are also going to be adding in that grape sweet Bud sweetener I was telling you guys about in last week's video. So besides that watering, I am just going to be shaking up the TNB natural CO2 canisters of course. 

And for the lights I'm going to keep them exactly the same today, but starting tomorrow I will start angling them back down towards the light so they are not directed away from the plants. That way we are just going to slowly increase the intensity of the lighting a little bit each day. So the plants are really reacting well so far to the second light, and I think angling the lights outwards is actually doing the trick because as you guys can see there are no signs of light or heat stress or any yellowing like we had last time. 

So we are going to go ahead and get these ladies water now, especially this one in the back left since she is especially thirsty. She will be perked back up by tomorrow's video though so don't worry about that and then I will see you guys back here for tomorrow which will be day 4 of the week.  Alright Peace Growers!

Alright Growers so we are back here for day 4 of the week in the plants are looking amazing. We are still going through that pre-flowering phase, so we are only going to see a slow bit of flower growth at this point but probably in the next few days we will start to see even more pistols coming in abundantly. So right now it is really important to make sure that your humidity and temperature are on point, so you want to be in that range for temperature of around 72 to 76° Fahrenheit you can go a little bit above or a little bit below that, but you don't really want to be getting into the 80s or high 70s during the day at this point. 

At night it is okay for it to be a little cooler like 68 or 69 degrees Fahrenheit. But you don't want it going to much lower than that. For humidity wanted to be in the range of 50%-55% and again we are no longer misting the plants. That is very important, so for today there's going to be a simple one as we are going to shake up the CO2 canisters of course and then I'm going to be giving that light alternate watering of just plain water and again I will probably just be splitting one spray bottle between all four plants. 

Now as I mentioned for the lights I am going to start angling them or downwards towards the plants, so they are not facing away from them and I will be showing you guys that in the clip after this. So now that you guys know what we are doing in today's video, I am going to adjust those lights and give the plants that light water and then I will see you guys back here for day five of the week. Peace!

What up Growers, we are back here now for day 5 of the week and this is a pretty exciting one because the plants are ready for their next watering. And what that means is they are going to be getting their first dose of flower nutrients. So before I cover that I want to cover what else what we will be doing in the video today, it is actually a pretty simple one. First we are not going to be adjusting the angle of the lights, we are just going to keep them at the exact same settings for now. And I'm thinking I will leave it like that for another day or two before I lower them or kind of adjust the angle so it is pointing more downward. 

Of course we are going to be shaking up the tnb naturals CO2 canisters and then besides that that is pretty much it. During the flowering phase there isn't a whole lot to do it is really just about maintaining proper temperature and humidity. As well as giving your plants the perfect lighting and watering schedule. So for the schedule today, the nutrient feeding it is going to be the fox farm Dirty Dozen of course. And we will be doing the week 5 mix from the soil feeding chart at full strength. Now this is the first week of flower nutrients, I know it it says it is week 5 and we are actually on week 9 here and that is actually just because we repeated the week for a vegetation mix for those extra weeks of veg. 

All right so we have two gallons mixed up here and we will be splitting that between all four of the plants as usual. And besides the normal Dirty Dozen nutrients that we are adding here, I of course have the CalMag which we are actually doing now at 1.5 teaspoons per gallon of water. And as I was mentioning is the first week of flower nutrients, so we are also going to be adding that grape sweet or that bud sweetener with the grape flavor by Botanicare. And I am doing that at 1.5 teaspoons per gallon of water as well, that is what the recommended dosage is for the entire flowering stage.

 Now if you pop the lid off there and smell it, it does smell a lot like grapes so I am excited to see how it affects the flavoring and smell of the buds.  I've never used one of these before, a bud sweetener so this will be my first time and I am excited to see what the results are. All right girls are so that pretty much sums up today's video and I am going to go ahead and give them that watering and shake up the CO2 canisters and then I will see you back here for a day 6 of the week.  Alright Peace!


What up Growers, we are back here for the very next day of the week so that means it is now day 6 of week 9. And that also means we are pretty much almost finished with the very first week of flower for these OG Kush plants. Now the first week to week and a half is really more of a preflower transitional phase, so that is why there isn't a lot of crazy flower growth just yet. But we are doing really well as we already have some pistols warming and the plants are looking really healthy and happy. You can also tell we are pretty much transitioned completely into flower because the plants are no longer getting any taller or bushier with foliage, and with that kind of growth. 

And then like I said they are also starting to develop and show signs of pistols and future Bud growth here at the bud sites. So very excited for the growth we've already got as well as for the future growth that is going to be here pretty quickly. During week 2 and 3 which is you know the next coming weeks, we are going to see a lot of pistol development so that will be very exciting. Now for today's video we are going to be shaking the CO2 canisters, which I have already done. I'm going to be doing that plane watering. That in between watering which is just going to be one spray bottle worth split between all four of the plants. And then for the wedding I am actually going to keep it exactly the same, I'm not going to angle them down any more at this point just because the plants seem to be doing fine with how it is.


 So I will give them a another two days before I angle it to the completely vertical or horizontal formation where the lights are pointing straight down on the plants. As you can see right now they are just slightly angled out towards the edge of the 10th. I would say it's about a 10% or a 10 degree angle. Now besides that I would like to just mention one more important thing about defoliation. So in the flowering phase we do have a few more deflation that we will do on the entire plants. But in between that you will notice that leaves are going to start dying off kind of one by one, especially as you start finishing up the flowering phase. 


So what I like to do is kind of as needed just remove leaves as you see them kind of starting to Decay or die a little bit. So we have a few right there and it is okay if you were just doing one or two here and there. That is fine, just consider it plant maintenance over the course of each day. All right Growers so that concludes today's update, so I'm going to go ahead and do that playing watering and remove some of those leaves like I was just describing. And then I will see you guys back here in 24 hours for the last day of the week.  Peace!


Alright growers we are back here for the last day of the week, and let's check on the plants to see how they are doing. Now as you can see they are looking really good, that flower growth is definitely starting to come on strong and you guys can probably not tell this or obviously you can't tell but I am definitely starting to smell that flowering scent. And honestly in the veg stage I could smell it, when we would do those defoliations and you probably will as well. But now that we are in flower and have had about a week's time and flower, I'm definitely starting to smell it stronger scent. 

So today's update is going to be a simple one, we are just shaking up the CO2 canisters, we are also going to be doing the next watering and that is going to be the first plain water and since that last nutrient feeding that we did. And if you guys remember, the last nutrient feeding that we actually did was the first flower mix of nutrients. So the plants look really good down here as you guys can see, the below the canopy area is getting plenty of Light which means we will have fully developed buds down here. And for the watering I will be splitting two gallons of plain water between all four plants.

 Now besides that all I am going to be doing is adjusting the angle of the light so they are pointing directly downwards and there's no more angle left and you can see the plants are definitely ready for that extra power. And then after a few days of that I will start lowering the lights a few inches at a time. The way that I decide that the plants are ready for the lights to be pointing directly down on them is it has been about four days since I did the last adjustment and there has been no yellowing during that time. 


There has been no signs of stress from the lights or any sort of heat stress so that tells me they are ready for some more power. Alright folks, so that about does it for this weeks update, I'm going to go ahead and get that watering done and then we will see you guys back here for a week 2 of flower which is also we 10 overall for this grow. And get excited because there is definitely going to be a lot of early flower development over that video.

Alright GreenBox Growers, that concludes week 9 of the OG Kush screen of green grow series. And of course that was Week 1 of flower. So I will be back shortly for the week 2 of flower episode and expect to see a lot of pistol development and early Bud growth during that video. So I am very excited, like I was saying the plants are already smelling really great and from that last shot you can see those first kind of sets of pistols that are already pushing out from the very top of the plant. So before I go I just want to thank you guys for watching this week's video, I really hope you enjoyed it, and until next time... 


Happy Growing!!!

WK 8 Veg OG Kush SCROG Grow

Lollipopping + Addition of 2nd SCROG Net!


 
 

What up Growers and welcome back to GreenBox Grown!  Now today officially kicks off week 8 of vegetation for the OG Kush Screen of Green Grow series. Now this is going to be the last week of vegetation, meaning we will flip the ladies to flower starting day 1 of week 9. And starting this week you will see here on day one that we will be lowering that one 300 watt electric sky LED. So now you guys know what we are doing in this week's video, let's get started with day one of the week where we are going to go over the lowering of that light as well as some more details on getting ready for flower!

Okay now here we are for day one of the week, and you can see the vegetative growth is continuing to do really well. And it might look like there isn't really a necessity for that second layer of the scrog net that we will be adding. But once we flipped these plants to flower they will actually still grow up to two-thirds of their current height. So adding that second layer will be great so they can grow through it as they are flowering. Now for today the plants are still good on water so no need to do anything with the soil there, we will be giving them their daily misting however after this shot. And of course shaking up the CO2 canisters if you have them in there. 

Now I just wanted to show you guys the plants are recovering well since I turned off that second light. You can see there is still a bit of yellowing and there's upper leaves from the light stress. But that generally doesn't go away, you just want to make sure that the new Leaf growth doesn't show signs of that.  And that from what I am seeing so far is the case so we are good right now, also before I go I wanted to mention I did lower this light a few inches, it was actually about 4 in. I just added the adjustable hangers to the light and that way you can lower the light closer to the plants as we get closer to flower here a little bit each day. 

And then that way they are ready for the second light to turn on once it comes time to flower. Now I will be putting the second scrog net up a few days or probably the day before flower, was we will do a lollipopping and some defoliation there to prepare for a flower. But I will give you more details at the end of this week once we are ready to do that. Until then we are just going to be doing the misting and watering schedule and yeah that's pretty much it. So I'm going to take care of that misting for today and then I will see you guys back here in 24 hours for day two of the week! 

What up Growers, we are now back here for day two of the week and the ladies are looking superb, we are right on schedule in terms of being ready to flip to flower by next week. And you can see more tops or growing through that scrog net each and every day. So what we are going to be doing today is actually focusing on some more stress training, you can see in the middle of the night we've got some empty squares so I will be training these tops around there through those squares today. Just so we can fill that out before we flip to flower, that is pretty important to do that. 

Now today you'll see the soil is nice and dry so the plants are ready for their next watering, that is going to be their third playing watering since their last nutrient feeding and we are going to be splitting and just over two gallons between all four of these plants. Now it seems like that amount has actually been working really well lately as it has been a little cooler here in Northern California. Now besides that we are going to be misting the plants of course and shaking of the CO2 bottles. 

And I also wanted to let you guys know that I did lower the light today about 3 in. So we will be continuing to do that throughout the week, and then by day one of next week we should be ready to add that second layer of the scrog net as well as to do a lollipopping and defoliation in preparation for flipping to flower. 

So then after that we will flip to flower probably a day or two after doing all of those steps. And then soon after we will be flipping on the second light and getting that going. So that is pretty much it for today's update oh, I'm going to go ahead and do that plane watering and misting as well as the low stress training. And then I will see you guys back here for day 3 of the week!

Okay so welcome back here for day 3 of the week, and as you guys just on that clip I was just doing a little bit of low stress training for those tops in the middle area just so we can fill in those empty squares. There is only a couple left that don't have a talk through them yet, so by the end of this week we will be good. I was also doing the tops that were a little on the taller side just so they don't get too tall and outgrow the light. 

So besides that you saw I gave them a misting and then of course we are going to be shaking up the CO2 canisters as always and then that is really it for today's update. We are going to keep the light at the same height as it is right now because they are reacting really well to it and I don't want to move it to close at this point to stress them out again. So that's really it for today's update and we will see you back here in 24 hours for day for the week, peace!

It is now a day for the week for the OG Kush plants, and as you can see we now have tops and all of those squares of the scrog net that were empty previously. So what that means it is at this point we are going to completely stop with that low stress training, we are just going to let those tops grow upwards now until we start flower. So besides that I lowered the light about 3 in today and I will probably be doing it one more time as in one more lowering, before we flip on the second light and then at that point we will be raising it back up. But it is still important to continue lowering until we get to flower just so they get used to that extra intensity. 

Now I will be shaking the CO2 canisters as always and I will be doing a misting, but I will be slowly tapering off with the misting, the amount I do over the next couple days here because we are approaching the flowering stage. And you want to kind of slowly get them used to not having that misting throughout the day, because we are going to completely stop once they flip to flower. Now besides that the plants are ready, or I'm sorry before I get to that now on day 7 of this week we are going to do the lollipopping and adding of the second layer of the scrog net. And then on day one of the next week, that is when we will be flipping them to flower. So I just wanted to give you guys a heads up on that, we will go into more details once we get to that point.


 And also don't worry once we are in flour I will go over there changes in terms of temperature and humidity, as well as the lighting schedule so you guys know all about that. So plants are ready for their next watering today and it is going to be a nutrient feeding and what we are going to be doing is just repeating that week for a vegetation from the dirty dozen mix or I'm sorry from the Fox Farm Dirty Dozen schedule. And I am going to be splitting two gallons of water between all four of the plants. Now remember we are going to 1.5 teaspoons per gallon of water for the Cal Mag because we did have that Cal Mag deficiency. 

Now the reason I bumped it back down to 2 gallons split between all four plants is because I noticed the extra water was just going to waste and wasn't making much of a difference. So what I have now done is I have switched to giving each plant one full spray bottle worth of water on the off days, so the in between days where I'm not giving the big buckets of water, I am just giving each plant one full spray bottle here and that seems to kind of tide them over until the next day when we do the big watering.

 So we are going to do this nutrient feeding today, and then it is important to note that after that we are going to do one plant watering and then we are going to do this recommended flushing with their Sledgehammer flush. And that is to just help ready for the flowering phase because after that we will do the first flowering nutrient feeding. But that flushes just going to help flush out essentially any buildup of nutrients from the vegetative stage. All right Growers so that pretty much covers everything for day 4 of the week, I am going to give them that watering now and then I will see you guys back here in 24 hours for day 5 of the week. All right peace!


What is up GreenBox Growers And welcome back for day 5 of the week. No eyes have been mentioning we are just a couple days away from the flowering phase so I'm really stoked about that, so it is also really important now that we just keep these plans and it's good of Health as possible right into that flowering phase, and then of course all the way through the flowering phase. So now we want to avoid as much stress as possible because that is only going to affect our yields and quality of Bud negatively from here on out. So today is going to be a pretty simple one, of course going to give them a very light misting and I'm going to shake up the CO2 canisters. 

Today is the off day for watering so I just gave them a really light watering of half a spray bottle per plant of just plain water. And you can see getting really bushy below the scrog net here, lower canopy area but we will be trying that up come day 7 of this week. Now I know I said I was not going to do any more LST for this grow but I decided that I am going to do one more today because I did find a few squares in the scrog net around the border that were still empty. And then also over here some of the tops we're getting a little tall so I just wanted to train them a little bit to prevent them from growing a light. So that's pretty much it for day 5 of the week and I'm going to go ahead and do that low stress training, and the light misting, and then we will see you guys back here for a day six! 

We are now back here for the very next day of the week, and as you can see the plants are actually getting taller every day. And what I mean by taller is the tops are growing up and I through the scrog net probably a couple inches every day. So very happy with this vegetative growth, we are right on schedule for where we want to be when we flip to flower. And today's update is going to be a pretty simple one as we are just going to be shaking up those CO2 canisters, as well as giving a very light misting and then of course the plants are ready for their next watering.

 So I'm going to be doing their first plain watering since the last nutrient feeding and I've got two gallons mixed up here at plain water and we're going to be splitting that between all for the plans. I just want to give you guys a quick little wood from underneath the canopy so you guys can see what it looks like. It is getting pretty but she down here so it is ready for that defoliation. As I have been saying, tomorrow we are going to lollipop these plants as well as at that second layer of the scrog net. 

And the lollipopping of course is going to help with increasing yields as well as getting more light down to those lower nodes. And then the second layer of the scrog net is just going to help with preventing those tops from stretching too tall. Alright guys so I'm going to go ahead and do that light misting as well as that plane watering and then I will see you guys back here for day 7 of the week where we are going to go ahead and do that lollipopping as well as add that second layer of the scrog net.

All right growing so it is finally the day we have all been waiting for oh, and what that is is we are going to be adding that second layer of the scrog net as well as doing our lollipopping. So before I get into that, first of all we are going to be giving a light misting to the plants today as well as shake up the CO2 canisters. And then sense it is the off watering day what we are going to do is just give, it's actually about a half of a spray bottle to about 3/4 of a spray bottle per plant, and I am just going to be watering plain water today just to tide them over hold them over until tomorrow.

 So for the scrog net all you have to do is add that right above the plants or the layer of foliage at the top, so I will have the scrog about 2in above the tallest parts of the plants here and then for the lollipopping, that is essentially going to be like the defoliations we've been doing. But we are really going to focus on this time around is the lower parts of the canopy. So first we are going to remove all leaves from the lower third of the plant and that is to just prevent any larfy growth from happening down below there. After that we are going to remove any branches that did not quite make it up to you to scrog net.

 If they are a few inches away from growing through, that is okay you can leave them. But stuff that is down below and doesn't have a chance to make it through, you want to remove that. So what we were going to do now is we are going to defoliate the first three plants here, just so you can see what they look like afterwards. And then you will have a good before with that forth plant that has yet to be done. So let me get started with that and then we will be back after I have these first three plants defoliated. 

Now once you have completely removed all leaves from the lower third of the plant as well as any tops that didn't make it through the scrog net, you are also going to watch it then out the growth and foliage that is above the SCROG net. So we are going to again remove about 20 to 30% of all the leaves in that area, the upper canopy. And that is just to help thin that out to allow for more light penetration down below the scrog net. 

So now that you guys understand what we are going to be doing for the lollipopping and adding the scrog net, I am going to go ahead and get started with that and then again we are going to defoliate three of the plants right now. We're going to lollipop them, and then leave one of them undone just so you can see the comparison between what they look like when they are finished to what they look like before hand. So now we are going to get started with that lollipopping and then I'll see you guys afterwards for that comparison. 

Okay so you guys can see we just finished adding that first or that second layer of the scrog net as well as defoliating those three plants. So as you can probably tell the plant in the front raise the one that did not get the defoliation or the lollipopping yet, and let me just show you guys an aerial view of how that should look. Obviously you can see you can pretty much see all the way down below the canopy straight to the soil. Through most of those Tops on the ones we already trimmed up, and that is exactly what we want because that is going to allow for the maximum yields as well as more Bud development and less LARFY buds down below. 


So now let me show you guys below the scrog real quick so you can see the lollipopping. And as you can see that lower third on these three plants we already did is completely trimmed up. Still a lot of growth down here as well as a scraggly tops that I'm going to quite make it through the SCROG net. And you guys can see in the video we removed quite a few of those from the plants we already defoliated. You can see how well we trimmed up that lower third of the plants here down below the canopy. And again what that's going to allow for is more air circulation down here which will prevent pests as well as mold from forming, and then it is also going to make it so enough light can reach down here so there is no LARFY bud development.

Now you can see the scrog net is looking really good, we put it about 2 to 3 in above the tallest parts of the plants and they are going to start growing through that pretty quickly even though we are flipping to flower tomorrow. But with the purpose of the second layer is is to basically support those branches as they get taller and a little lankier. And that way once they pack on a lot of weight with that bud development they don't start too lean or snap or anything like that. So what I'm going to do now is Lollipop this last plant right here, and then I will see you guys back here for the first day of next week.


 Oh and one more quick thing I want to show you guys, here is pretty much all of the leaves we trimmed off of the plant so far. There are some back down there around the plants as well, but you can see it is a pretty good amount and that is just because we remove so many of the branches that didn't really make it through the scrog net where were just way too small and weren't going to do anything. And we really thinned out the upper part of the canopy. Let me just give you guys a quick look at that again. 

So yeah just in comparison you can't really see any of the soil to the plant and it doesn't look like any light is going to make it through there. And then over here you can start to see the soil down there and the buckets where the plants are planted in so that's a good sign that that full light penetration is going to make it down there for fully developed buds. Alright guy said that officially concludes this week's video and then I will see you back here for next week.

Alright GreenBox Growers, so that officially concludes week 8 of vegetation where the OG Kush Screen of Green Grow series. So now that we've got that lollipopping finished and have added the second layer of the Scruggs net, that means tomorrow which is day 1 of week 9, we are going to be flipping these plants into the flowering stage. So very excited for that and we are probably going to see some quick pistols pumping out of these plants within the first week of doing so, and then probably within another week's time we will be flipping on that second 300 watt electric sky LED. I just want to give them a little bit of time to recover from that lollipopping that we just did. And also a little bit of time to adjust now that we are flipping them to flower come tomorrow. So as always I want to thank you guys for watching this week's episode, I really hope you enjoyed it, and until next time…

Happy Growing!!!
