Banana Fig #8 & TropiKill Strain Review

Cannabis Cup Award Winning Strains by Fig Farms


 

What up GreenBox Growers and welcome back for another lit episode of GreenBox Grown! Now today I'm doing another strain review for you guys, and I just picked up these two different strains from the local dispensary, I've got my Indica dominant Banana Fig #8 right here. And then I've got my TropiKills sorry Tropikill which is sativa dominant hybrid. So I will give you guys some close-ups on these and I will also be giving you the background info on the genetics And growing info from Leafly. And then we'll get those close-ups and I'll break up a few bowls that I'll smoke so I can give you guys my review.

 Now if you guys have any strange in particular that you would like to see reviewed on this page, just send a comment below with what that is and I will be sure to pick that up or grow it myself so I can give you guys my feedback on that strain. Now as always I got to mention to check out our Merch under the Merch and Smoke section at greenboxgrown.com. And also don't forget to check out our link Down Below in the description to visit our patreon page to sign up for one-on-one growing advice from myself, where I’ll guide you each day of the cannabis grow so you can learn and get the best results possible. All right now that you guys know what we are doing in today's video, let's get started! 

All right grey hours to the first thing I would like to mention is actually both of these strains come from fig Farms up in NorCal I don't know if you've heard of them before, and this is actually tropical not Tropic Hills or whatever I was calling it. But I looked up their genetic information and of course it's coming from state farm so they're not going to release all of the information for what they are cloning or what they are breeding into the genetics. So I know that the banana fig number eight is partially banana kush and then the Fig number 8 part is going to come from their genetic line.

And then the tropical I believe comes from either tropical kush or tropical thunder fuck, some sort of mix of that.   so I'll give you guys a little bit of a background on Fig Farms as well as the Banana Kush which is in the banana fig. But I don't really have too much details on the rest of the genetics for these two strains.   So one thing that is really cool about fig Farms as they have won a lot of rewards I mean Awards recently for their strange. So you know it's a quality medicine and those flavors are going to be very good. So specifically the banana fig number eight actually won the NorCal Cannabis Cup this past June, so very tough competition there and shows  these are some really strong and powerful genetics, so definitely worth checking out.

 They also have another strain called Purple fig which is pretty great. And for the Banana Kush that is actually an Indica dominant hybrid and it is more of a relaxed happy and euphoric high, so I'm guessing this train will provide some similar effects there. 4 grow info it's a moderate stirring to grow, so you should have a little experience and in terms of the height of the plant it will grow without any training  it's going to be a medium height plant. But it's also a high yielding plant, and that will get 3 to 6 ounces per square meter per square foot That you're growing end. Again these stats are all coming from Leafly dot-com and they have a whole database of all these different strands reading it this info from. Flowering is a pretty quick 7 to 9 weeks and it stretches a hundred percent to 200% which is a pretty good amount. Let's see, for the Banana Kush flavors of course it is tropical and sweet, tree fruit and that big is probably going to contribute a little bit to that sweetness as well. But yeah that's pretty much it, so let's get some close-ups of these Buds and start breaking them up for a bowl.

 All right here we are up close and we've got mr. Shake excited for his bold to be packed. So let's do the close up of the tropical first, so let's see if I can get a little closer. So these are both really really dense and Frosty and you will see that once I, I'm just going to pull us out of the packet because it's probably going to be easier without that plastic reflection. Sweet very dank smell, and you can see how Frosty they really are. Okay we're going to pull some of this out damn okay.  There we go look at that, Very Frosty and it's going to taste very good I can tell already. 

All right said there we have our tropical, now let's do the banana fig number 8.   so here's the picture of it looking at it through the bag, you can tell it's really Frosty even through the plastic. I'm going to open her up just to get that initial smell.   Yeah it's guy you can definitely smell the Fig in it and it's kind of purple e, but it's more of that purply indica smell for sure.   I'm going to get a couple nugs out so you guys can get the clothes up. Yeah just packed with try comes and it just looks like it has a completely or Frost all the way around. So that on the right is the banana fig number eight and then here these nugs on the left is the tropical.   All right I'm going to break these out by hand and then pack a bowl for you guys to watch me smoke.

 All right now I've got my little bold ready, just going to pack a little Snapper of the banana fig first. Damn not every time I break a little off you can see just a dust of try comes falling off I almost don't want to break her. Okay. I mean look at that, that's just from breaking up a couple pieces right there. Got them Sticky Fingers.   Got my little Snapper packed,  it's hard to tell but it's in there and here we go first taste of The banana fig and number 5 I mean number a I don't know why I keep saying number 5. Cheers guys!

 Very smooth oh yeah very tasty at the end their you kind of get that taste of a hint of fig kind of that purple e dank taste and this is the Indica dominant and this was also my first hit Of the day. So I can feel it immediately right in the brain and let's get this second hit. They say it’s very indica but it's not going to give you that couch feel. It's very tasty it's not super energetic High, more of a relaxing laid-back feel. Like it's time to play a little fortnight or something like that.

All right I'm going to re-pack the bowl now with a little nug of the tropical and I don't know I can't say that right. Nice okay so these nugs were both very dense, Not fluffy at all and again this one is covering my fingers with trichomes. just wanted to sativa dominant so you're supposed to get that really uplifting High I'm starting to get that head feeling going with the number 8, banana fig number 8. So there we go nice bowl, damn yeah that figures definitely coming on strong and I'm really liking that strain so far.   okay so here we go 4 Bowl number two of the Tropic killed by big farm.  Cheers Guys!

Now what's really cool as they both kind of have that fruity taste and smell, but they are very different, they're pretty but different tasting so very different fruity flavors are very cool. If you guys 1 cough there so I've got the tropical here and the banana fig 8 / 8 big farms up in NorCal and they've been winning tons of those  cannabis cups lately.  Like I said they won the NorCal Cannabis Cup with that Banana Fish number 8 but yeah both strains very good hard to say.

I'm definitely feeling that body high now that I've taken this bowl of the tropical now. but that banana fig number 8 is still coming on pretty strong so it's hard to tell the difference, but still definitely recommend both of these and you can see they're both so densely packed with trichomes and they're just Rock Solid. So definitely two thumbs up for both strains by fig Farm.

All right guys that concludes today's strain review but like I was saying earlier if you have a specific strain you want to see me review.

Week 4 of the Low Stress Training Autoflower Grow Series

Week 4 of the Low Stress Training Autoflower Grow Series

Week 4 LST Autoflower Grow Series


 

What's up GreenBox Growers and welcome back to another lit episode of GreenBox Grown. So today I'm going to be starting week 4 of my LST Autoflower series, and this week we will see a lot in terms of the vegetative growth as well as flower grows because they are now transitioning over into the flowering phase. Before I get started with this week's video I want to remind you as always to check out our merch at green box grown.com under the merch and smoke section. 

And don't forget to visit our link Down Below in the description to check out our patreon page where you can sign up for my cannabis growing classes, where I will teach you everything you need to know about home growing and how to grow the best bud possible. All right now that you know what we’re doing in this weeks video, lets get started!

All right bro as we are outside here in the garage, and it is day one of the week and I'm going to give you a close up on the plants to show you how they have progressed since the last video. So you can see they are all getting really tall now, they are not ready yet for a watering and the last watering I did was a nutrient feeding. But like I just said they are getting a lot taller and are mostly starting to flower. This one is the one that is still yet to start, but the other three with this one being the farthest a long are definitely starting to show signs of those pistols for me, which is what those white hairs are or those little white thing sticking up at the center of each top.

 So they are still going to go a long ways and terms of vegetative growth and these are autoflowers so they do flower early on but that doesn't mean that they will be this short when they are done.   So I am expecting these guys to add a couple feet and height each before they finish up. Temperature is still 75 degrees Fahrenheit and with the humidity it lowered a little bit so it's still around 55 to 60% now. And again no more LST training or low stress training. I'm just going to let these guys grow up so you can see how long each of these thoughts really are now that they've had some time to grow. And they are all coming right from the center of that canopy.

Like I said these guys are going to continue to shoot up in height, but they are also going to start to develop a lot in terms of Bud, so I'm very excited now for this part. They are kind of talk the transitional phase except for this guy, all right so it looks like our little spider friend is making an appearance in this week's video. And again I am just keeping, well there's a couple of spiders crawling around in here actually but that's the only one around right now. But like I said the reason I keep it around in the tent because it prevents passed by eating them,  and if he does spend any webs which this doesn't look like the one that does, but if they do just brush them off and you are good to go.

 Another Important part of the start of flower as well as love whole flowering phase, is to have great air circulation and air movement. So you want those families fluttering, but you also want a lot of fresh air exchange coming into the tent so you don't have stale air moving around and that breeze is great for preventing things like mold as well as past from landing on your plants. If they do happen to get your grow room, but important to prevent that all together. and also the breeze or the fluttering helps with strengthening the branches and line them to grow taller with heavier Buds.  Alright guys I will be back in 24 hours with day 2 of the week, peace.

All right green box Growers we are back 4 day 2 of week 4 and you can see the plants are no longer showing signs of light stress and they are also ready for their next watering so in this video I will be doing their next plane pH watering at 6.3. Temperature is still well it is still a little high about 80 81 Fahrenheit, should be closer to 75 degrees. I have the carbon filter going now that they're starting to smell a little bit and that is also helping with air regulation and exchange. You can see these branches here really starting to shoot up and are really tall and lengthy so I might be lowering the light just a few inches, well actually I did just lower it a few inches so I will see how they react to that and tomorrow I will reevaluate and lower again.

 So you can see right now they are all just getting taller so I will put the camera about ground level and you can see their about a foot and a half to two feet and height right now. And they're going to get a lot taller as well as a lot more Bud growth, so now let's do that plane pH watering, and I have just over a gallon mixed up and I think at this point they're going to be able to use all of that up.  So it's going to be a pretty good watering this time. All right so here we go, and while I am watering I would also like to mention that my 360 degree camera just came in today in the mail and so now I'm going to Start filming some of these plants and the series with that camera, it will be a second option that you get so you will be able to watch this normal version and then you will also have the second version with the 360 capability. 

So I will have the camera in the middle of the tent so you guys can kind of look around at two different plants and see those buds as they're growing, and that will be a really cool feature to add to her videos. So these ones were pretty overdue for a watering and you can tell because it's going right through meaning the soil is super dry right now but as always be very gentle water slowly a little bit at a time, as you don't want to move that soil around too much and you definitely don't want to disturb those roots. All right so I'm just about finished here,  and remember I no longer misting the plants just watering.   All right that is it I'll be watering a little more in a second just going to let that soak in.  Again I would like to know how these branches over on this planet are really stretching and getting really tall, and that's a good thing because that's going to lead to a much bigger Buds and that is exactly what we want to happen. All right so I will be back 4 day 3 of the week in another 24 hours, peace!

What up GreenBox Growers I'm back here for day 3 of week 4. So 2 big changes, first I turned up the amount of light these guys are going to get each day, so instead of 18 hours they are up to 21 hours of light each day, and then 3 hours of Darkness each day.  Second thing is I added a second row light in here, and this is just optional but now that they started to flower I decided to add this Mars Hydro 96 reflector light and that is just because these guys put off a lot of good flowering wavelength light. Really purple light so that will help these guys bud and both of the lights are high enough so all of the plants are under both Footprints of both lights. So they are all getting equal amounts of lighting from each.

Now I watered these yesterday with plain pH water, so they are good for now and they will probably be ready tomorrow since it's a little bit hotter in here with the two lights and I mean these guys are starting to grow pretty fast in terms of  height wise, but I think with the second light they are going to start going  even faster. So because they are getting really bushy I decided to spread them out even further than before. Here is a good aerial view to give you guys a good idea of how big they are really getting. So they have more space between each other now so they can spread out and get bigger,  temperature still the same around 75 degrees Fahrenheit, and humidity is in the 55 to 65% range. All right guys I will be back in 24 hours for day for the week.

 What up GreenBox Growers we are here for day 4 of the week, and as you can see these plants are ready for their next watering. It's going to be a plane pH watering, And this will be the second one since the last nutrient feeding so this means one more of these until the next nutrient feeding. Now is always on p a chain at 6.3 and left her pH monitor on there so I just turned it off, and another thing I'd like to point out that I lowered the lights even further so yesterday I talked about How I turn the light schedule up to being 21 hours on  and 3 hours off each day.

 Now I have the lights close to about 26 in from the tops of the heist parts of these plans. And I've still got those lights going, and another thing I want to point out is like I was saying yesterday also with this new lighting it's going to be warmer and the plants are going to be drying out a lot faster, and you can see all of these leaves that are drooping that is because the plants are very thirsty right now and need a lot of water. So this can also be a sign of over-watering but they're going to look different as they will be more rigid and curled. And these ones are more droopy and look kind of Life list, so that's how you tell that it's under watering and not overwatering. You can see over here with this guy the that it is to the point that the leaves are actually laying in the soil so I'm going to water them and it usually only takes like  15 to 30 minutes before they stand back up. 

But you don't want to go too long like this and you want to you don't really want that to happen very frequently, so I just wanted to show you guys what it looks like when they are really thirsty and ready for watering. So in terms of growth all of these main Tops on these plants are starting to get really tall. And this guy over here for whatever reason I think this is the blue Amnesia, yeah, for whatever reason this one top just seems to want to grow up and maybe these guys will do it later. But with all the other plants you can see all the tops are growing evenly, so looking really good and you can see here even a top is lying down that's how much water it needs. So I'm going to give these guys some water now so that they will stand back up and perk back up for us.

All right all right so now that these guys are going to be going through water a lot faster, I'm going to be giving them more water each feeding, so I've got about a gallon and a half maybe a little more than that, and I'm going to give each of these plants, I'm going to split that between each of these plants are all four of them. So is always you are going to want to give them a quick soaking and let that go and soak to the  bottom before giving it some more. And you're just going to want to evenly water all of the topsoil, now with the leaves that are laying in the dirt I'm going to pull those up after watering so they are not just laying there or that will damage them and cause other issues with the plant. So don't just let them lay there and soak in the soil as that will kill them and possibly cause some mold to form or some sort of powdery mildew.

 There they go that's their first soaking, I'm going to let that soak in and then I'll be back  to finish giving them the rest of this water. I'll also come back with the shot when they perk back up so you can see what that looks like, so I'll be back for that shot and that will probably be another 30 minutes before they perk up. All right here we are just an hour later and the leaves have started standing back up for most of the plants, you can see they're still a little droopy back there but definitely better than before. Probably just going to take a little longer for these guys to get back to Standing full up right. Cuz they were probably just really underwater.

 You can see these guys are starting to get up and are getting taller and catching up with this main branch here, and the ones in the back they are starting to get taller as well now. I think that new Mars Hydro is going to help them too, and then this guy seems to be doing the best out of all of them, still growing a lot in terms of vegetative growth, And they're still going to get a lot more bigger,  all of them will actually. But yeah here they are an hour later like I was saying and they are just about back to standing fully up right. So I will be back in 24 hours for day 5 the week. peace guys!

All right Growers word back for day 5 of the week and the plants are still growing up words really well.  They got a little yellow, a little light burn as you can see with this guy right here,  the talk to Yellow Toad and the leave cruel down a little bit, so I just pulled the light back up, this thing is a little finicky with distant so I just decided I'm going to keep it up there for the rest of the grow unless by some miracle these guys are going to handle the light up close really well. So I'm just going to keep that 900 watt LED up high and besides that everything else is the same, you can see there are a lot less droopy and terms of the under watering, and the leaves are curled down a little bit because of the light intensity but those should perk up now that I've raised them. 

They are getting taller a lot taller actually so that is good, and you can see this guy is just starting to flower as well, so they should all be progressing really well in the next couple of weeks. And then here's just a quick aerial shot to show you guys the different tops and how they are growing and then of course temperature and humidity are the same. Got to keep a lot of good airflow going with a breeze so these guys flutter and they flutter a little more once the door is closed and there's better circulation going around. But besides that they are all good and I will be back in 24 hours per day 6 of the week, all right please guys!

All right green box Growers, we are back 4 day 6 of week 4 and you can see I've got my 360 camera going in the middle there and this back right Tangie plant has kind of taken a turn for the worst over the last couple of days here and what it looks like is the signs kind of look like over-watering by the way. The leaves are tightly curled under but as you can see in the soil is completely dry. So the issues light burn and light stress and it is because I had this light to close, with LEDs it'll take a few week sometimes before the plants really show signs that they are being affected. 

So I just decided to raise the 900 watt all the way up to the ceiling and I hopefully after a water today and the plant takes up that water, hopefully those leaves stand back up or at least in the next few days. I've also been talking to a few people who've been growing the Tangerine Dream genetics before and they said they are pretty Sensitive to light in, so that is another reason why that would be happening, but as you can see the other plants are doing really well especially this guy right here. Just shooting up really tall and this one starting to catch up a little bit, and then the one in the back I'm hoping will do so now as well since the lights have been raised.

All right so today is the third plane pH watering since the last nutrient feeding and I've got about 10 gallons, sorry I've got about 2 gallons mixed at 6.3. All right now I'm just going to give them a really good watering as they are pretty dry, the soil is pretty dry right now and with the light stress they tend to take up more water and where nutrients so it's good to feed a little extra to help curb that problem.  

You'll notice the leaves look a little bit, the affected leaves from the light stress look a little bit dried out, that's a normal sign and the curling down you'll notice it's the leaves at the very top there curling down and you also knows that the centers of those tops it's really yellow, so those are kind of the signs of how you can tell it's not over watering but instead it's kind of light burn or light stress. As well as the fact that the soil is completely dry so it can't be over watered. All right so now I'm just going to Water this last guy in the back here and then we will be all set.  All right guys now they are completely watered and I will be back in 24 hours for day 7 of the week.

What app green box Growers and welcome back 4 day 7 a week 4. So as of today the plants are looking a lot better since I've raised the light up last night, and you can see I've got it pretty much all the way to the roof. And it was the back right to Angie here that was affected the most by those drooping leaves and the yellowing at the tops but those leaves are actually starting to stand back up there were standing up more earlier today and then as the day went on, they kind of went down a little bit. And that's just because they get tired towards the end of the day since they are recovering. 

And there's still a lot of light going on and here, but I'm hoping by tomorrow they'll be all the way back up to full standing. You can see that's the only plant where it's happening,  I mean this one was doing it a little bit but it's much better now. This guy the front right and then the back left, they seem to be flowering more than the rest or having a little less veg growth while this Tangie dream is still really kicking in terms of bed growth. So you can see it's really getting some tall tops going and I mean this is the best one out of the group I would say.  This one's pretty tall in the back here in this flowering but as you can see it has that light burn going so that's kind of affected it, but these guys will probably be ready for their next watering tomorrow, which will be a nutrient watering. And again I'm doing 21 hours of light and 3 hours of Darkness each day, I've got temp right in that 70 to 78 degrees Fahrenheit rain, and humidity is a little low right now it's at 35% it should really be up to 50. So maybe adding a humidifier here a little later on.

 One thing really quick, since humidity is really low I added a bowl of water into the grow room, and that will help increase the humidity as long as temperature is in the upper 70s just because the high heat will evaporate and then increase humidity in the grow room. And that's a good way to do it once your plans are in flour if you don't want to be missing them, so just added a bowl of water and then tomorrow I'll show you guys what that's done. It's already been in here for a little bit and you can see it's gone from 35 to almost 40% so we'll see how high it increases by tomorrow.

 All right guy said that is officially the end of week 4 and we got a lot of growth like I said coming out of this guy over the course of this week I think we'll see a lot more of the rest of the plans, now that the lights are a lot higher. But some of them have started flowering so they only have so much time left. We'll see what happens, I think this guy this Tangie dream in the front left here is really going to be the highest see older out of all of them since it did the best with the LST, and I guess I would say I learned my lesson and terms of using this 900 watt LED here and how close it's going to be too the plants as you can see by the sky in the back.   All right I'll see you guys another 24 hours for the start of week 5!

 Alright Growers that concludes week 4 of the Autoflower LST series. And I will be back very shortly with week 5 in about a week or two for that video.

Bloom Beast COB LED Review + First 2 Patreon Goals Accomplished!!!

The Bloom Beast C525 COB LED Grow Light


 

What's up Cannabis Growers and welcome back to GreenBox Grown!  Now today I'm really excited because today I'm going to be doing a review of this LED COB light that was sent to me by Bloom Beast. So huge shout-out for hooking me up with this led! So in this video I'm going to give you guys a little overview and turn it on to show you guys it's different features. It's got some pretty cool stuff that you can dial up with the light. So I'll be going over that in this video. 

And so 2nd and most importantly I want to give a huge shout-out to all of my Patrons  who donated last month to GreenBox Grown!   With those donations we were able to accomplish our first two goals both in the last month, so what that means is I now have my 360 degree camera here which I'll be filming my grows with. And I will also be starting my cloning and mother plant how to grow series.

So I will be using this cob light to be growing this mother plant as well as the clowns I'll be doing in that serious. I'll also be using this 360 camera to film That serious as well as other grow videos, so you guys will have the option to watch in the 360 viewing auction. Now is always before I get started I got to mention to check out our merch and smoke deer on the green box around website. And also don't forget to check out our patreon page if you haven't already subscribed there, we are just about to hit our third patreon goal. Which will be an upgrade from the iPhone which I'm filming on now to a real video camera for 4K filming. So if you guys haven't signed up yet, be sure to visit the link Down Below in the description, and now that You guys know what we're doing in today's video, let's get started with an overview of the bloom Beast LED grow light. 

All right guys so here is the light, and again the model is the c-525, so it's from the Sea series, so you'll see they have different models they have an A and A B series as well. So this one they say or they claim will replace a 600 watt HPS metal halide grow light. So I'm just going to be growing one plant under here but it's going to be my mother plant so it's going to be pretty big and bushy so we'll see how it does under there.  They also say that this light has a lifespan of 50000 hours, so that's pretty good as well, and I'll be giving you guys an overview of the other models at the end of this video. So as you can see here it has the 4 called lights in the corners with the many carbs in the middle, and does look more like an LED diode. And what's really cool is my favorite part about this light as it has the 3 adjustable in dimmable knobs.

 So this is actually upside down it but I will have it hanging in the grow room in the next shot. And I will turn the light on. But you'll see it has the seedlings switch right here, the veg switch and then the flowering switch. So you can use this Like from seed to harvest, you don't have to switch around the height too much you don't have to switch between low wattage lights for the seedlings to hire ones for your flowering phase. It's just one light 3 different knobs in your good did it go.  All right now let's go check it out hanging in the grow room, and I'm going to power this bad boy up!

All right guys here we are out in the garage where I will be doing my cloning and mother plant how to grow series. This is the 10th I will be using and you can see I've got the supplies almost set up, and I'm going to be using this air Roots pot with the yellow bottom. And then of course I've got them bloom Beast cob LED hanging up in here. Got her plugged in and imma show you guys how to use it and what it looks like. So that's just to put the fans on and of course you'll start with your seedlings switch when your plants are in seedling,  And not only do you have the  different switches but they are dimmable. So this is the lowest for seedling all the way up to the highest so you can increase it as the plants grow.

 Once you are ready for vaginal keep the seedling switch on and then you'll turn the second middle dial which is the veg dial, and that will get those two Corner Cobs going. So there we go as we increase that and of course once you're in flower you'll dial that one on and that will turn on the other two cobs which are more of a red frequency.  And that's full of 3 fully turned on and you can see just how colorful that is and it's very cool light I really like this one and I am really excited to see how this one does growing my mother plant. So now let me show you guys the different models on our website that we have available.

 Alright, here we are on greenboxgrown.com and all you have to do is go to the starter kits tab to and on the drop down go to grow lights. And you'll see this is the page where we have them listed. There are three different series no two different, so we've got these ones here and like the series that I have. So I have this light right here the 525 watt they have another one that's an 850w and then they've got these other ones here which are just a different model. And you'll see they just have one cob in the Middle with all the panels around it and then these are just a larger versions of the same one. Again Another huge shout-out to Bloom Beast for hooking me up with this grow light. I am really stoked to have it and very excited to try it out with my mother plant and cloning how to grow series.

 All right GreenBox Growers that concludes my review of the bloom Beast cob LED light. And again if you guys want to check it out we have it on our GreenBoxGrown.com Store under the lighting section.

Week 3 of Low Stress Training my Autoflower Plants

Week 3 of Low Stress Training my Autoflower Plants

Week 3 LST of the Autoflower Grow Series


 

What's up GreenBox Growers and welcome back to GreenBox Grown! Now today I'm going to be starting week 3 of my LST Autoflower series, and this entire video is going to cover that each step of the way so you guys can continue to follow along. This week I'm going to let the plants continue with their beds growth and I will also be giving them their third nutrient feeding, and for the time being I have caused the low stress training to let those branches grow up in length. I will be giving you more details about that in this video though.

 Before we get started I want to mention as always to check out our merch On the official GreenBox Grown clothing page under merch and smoke. And also don't forget to check out the link Down Below in our description to sign up for one-on-one growing advice with a grow expert such as myself or I'll guide you each step of the way from seed to harvest so you can get the best results possible from your plants. Alright, now that you guys know what we're doing in today's video, let's get started!

All right folks here we are 4 day 1 of the week, and the plants look like they are ready for their next watering but before I get into that I want to show you your their progress from yesterday from the last video. Raising that light up to 33 inch or 32 I forget exactly has really helped a lot and I may raise them even further.  But they are really starting to take off up word and you can see the flowering has really officially begun. So for now the only training I will be doing is kind of the individual training without tying down the branches, just like that. Because now that they have started to flower I really want them to just be growing up and not be trying them down, or just going to get a lot of really short branches with small buds on them.   

So training has officially just about finished I might try this one down over here, but all you really want to be doing right now Is all those tops that you created, you now just want to try and keep them separated so they all have their own little space to grow big buds in. So this guy's kind of towering over these two down here but those look like they are growing to grow out and make it. 

Training them into the sunlight will help a lot as well, so check the soil and it is dry down below there so it is ready for their next watering. This is the second watering since their last nutrient feeding so it'll be another plane pH watering at 6.3. And you should be soaking them pretty well at this point, to the point that you are getting runoff out of the bottoms. And is always guys you want to be very careful when watering so you don't disrupt the roots and move the soil around too much.

 So I like to give each plant a little soaking and then go to the next one and then I will come back to that plant once that first fed of water has had a chance to soak in  And go down below. And then after this I will be missing the plants lightly.  Now I probably will be stopping the misting of the plants pretty quickly here now they're showing signs of flower, but not just yet. And you can see these babies really needed a watering because the soil is so dry that the water is actually staying on top for a second, but that's all right.  Okay now give them a second watering and a little bit here but for now I'm just going to miss them, and we're going to start to see a lot of good growth now that that light is back up and we will also see that bud growth coming in really nicely. So I'm very excited for that.  All right cuz that just about concludes day one of the week, but before I go I want to mention first of all that 4 temperature I'm still keeping it at 75 degrees Fahrenheit and trying to keep it in the range and at least 72 about 78 degrees and humidity keeping in the range of 50 to 60%. It can be 55 to 65 to as that's a good range, and now that they are officially starting to Flower a decent amount, I'm going to turn on the bloom switch or the flowering switch on my grow light, so both switches are going to be running from here on out. And that's going to just give them the full spectrum of light to help get them growing on those buds a little better. All right that's it for today and I'll be back 4 day 2 of the week in about 24 hours, peace guys.

 What's up GreenBox Growers, so after the last shot I actually went on a last minute vacation down south. So this is actually two and a half days later not 24 hours later, so we are on day three Almost day for here of the week. What's really cool as I just watered before I left for my trip  so they were totally fine while I was gone. I had some automation stuff set up on my phone so I could keep an eye on temperature and humidity and make sure the lights were working, but other than that it was really easy to be gone for a couple of days and now I'm going to show you guys what the plants look like now that I'm back.

All right so I've already got the plain pH water already mixed at 6.3, and I've got the gardening soft I as well as the paper clips I'll be using to tie it.   So what I'll do is the LST before I do the watering and misting, and this you'll see they have definitely started flowering, some are further ahead,  this one is definitely the furthest ahead but you can see the pistol starting to form of top there. So I'm going to stop misting after today this will be the last one, and let's see if I can get a better close up on that. 

There you go, so definitely starting to flower they're still going to grow a lot in terms of veg grow, and the training I'm going to be doing today isn't going to be as much as telling them down as it is going to be like bringing them out into the open like this one so they're a little more spaced out.  It's not going to really be too much more training after that. All right so let's get started with the training.

All right so I'm going to start with this Tangerine Dream right here in the front left. As you can see these tots really exploded up in the last couple of days while I was gone. These were all just only an inch or two taller before I left, so this is the main one that started in the very beginning and the rest of these are the ones that are grown up 4 below the canopy. What I'm thinking is I'm just going to bring this guy down a little bit and the rest I'm just going to train but not tie. And then that'll probably be it, and for these other ones like this one in the back right this Tangerine Dream, I'm probably going to tie this top one more time down just because it is still covering up all those mean guys down below.

This one here I'll try this man top down one more time and I'll probably it, and then that'll be the same with this guy over here. All right now I'm going to get start with that training.  As always I'm just going to take a piece of my gardening soft hi, and clip that off to turn it into the hook shape. And I might be able to use the same paper clip that's already down there, all right here we go turn this part into the hook and then listen to the Anchor. I'm just going to pull this guy down like that and then I'll also Loop it like this a little more just to get a better hold on. And then I'm just going to get a new paper clip pull that down like that and clip it on. And that's it!  Perfect!

All right so that'll Grow Up by tomorrow, and now these ones I'm just going to do the 3 finger LST training on them just to bend them out and Away. They'll grow right back up just a little further away from the middle so they have their own little space and I'll actually have to start separating these pots a little bit because plants are starting to overlap and get into each other's sunlight space. Sorry grow light, there’s no sunlight in here!  

But yeah so look at this one, too this one has to new tops going, so that's 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10, 11 about 12 almost on that guy! Arts and I'm going to try these other ones down and I'll be right back. All right here we are all finished with the LST for today and to be honest this will probably be the last one. But you can see this guy this main top right here I just trained with my fingers, Didn't tie it down, but this one back here are tied this Mane top down as you can see and I made sure to have the wire around the branch where there was no buds growing or no tops growing out. you can see there was some buds growing there so I brought it right below so that was the only new one I tied down. Main top right there. And the rest of these ones are going to grow up really well now.

 Did the same thing over here with this main top just pulled it down and then expose all these ones underneath. So they are all going to is completely shoot up and like I said that'll probably be the last time I do this, I also had a pretty big now. So now I'm going to give them their plane watering and misting.   All right thanks as always this is just plain water pH at 6.3 and that is cuz I'm growing in. Fox Farm ocean forest, and the fox farm ocean Forest is good at buffering pH but 6.3 is a good one to water at as well so I just go that way. So be sure to consistently so call of the soil at this point. You should be getting about 5 to 10% runoff out of the bottom of the pots maybe a little bit more. And don't just water and one spot make sure to get all of this oil and to be gentle with the leaves you don't want to be watering you know all of the tops, you just want to be watering the soil below.

 Or I should just about finished here and then I like to use a wet vac to vacuum up the water runoff, you can leave it in here if you want but that will raise the humidity but it will eventually evaporate.  All right so I'm going to let that soak in and then I'll give them a little bit more, but in the meantime I'm just going to miss them for now and I will be back in 24 hours with tomorrow's update. Also I've got the light raised about 3 feet above the plants and that seems to be helping a lot and I have the fans turned up a little more now that the plants are bigger as you want to keep those Fan Leaves dancing. Kind of fluttering lightly in the Wind.

What up Growers were back 4 day 5 of the week, and this is 24 hours after the last shot. The training I did on the plants work out really well as you can see they have grown up a lot and they are getting all of those new tops going. I got temperature I'm trying to stay at 75 right now but it is closer to 80, 77° so I'll try to drop that a few. I've got the fans going and I still got the light up high. I'll probably drop it once they start getting further into flower and are more adjusted to the 900 watt.  

But yeah good air circulation, good temperature humidity is at 60 degrees a little over under 60 maybe 59. Sorry not 60 degrees but 60% maybe 59% which is around 55 to maybe 60 or 65% range somewhere in there. So I gave them their third pH watering  yesterday since the last Nutrients, so once they dry out they'll be ready for their next nutrient feeding. But anyways now I want to give you guys a little bit of close up on how these guys are doing and what they are looking like.

 All right so I want to start with this Tangerine Dream right here, and this one is actually not flowering as much as the other ones are. But it does probably have some of the most tops out of all of them.   So I mean it's not really starting to flower yet just starting its first couple pistils,  but it is doing well. And this guy over here is doing well also and you can see this one is the furthest along and terms of flower. And yes this is the blue Amnesia or at least one of them. And let's see the back right is the Tangerine Dream and then the back left is the other blue Amnesia so these two are starting to flower.  These two are starting to flower and this guy's about the same as the Tangerine Dream that is not flowering that much and then this one is kind of in between because it's not as much as that front right plant but it is starting to flower little.

 So with these guys I'm not really going to be training much anymore I definitely won't be adding any more hooks, I'm going to probably do some training like that where I pull the tops away from each other, but besides that that's about it because I want them to just grow up and height for now. If I do do training it's just going to be the main tops being pulled over out of the way so it doesn't grow back over the tops of the plant. No more missing at this point is just watering and that's it.  All right so this was day 5 and I will be back in another 24 hours for day 6 of week 3, alright peace guys! 

What's up Growers and welcome back for day 6 of the week, And I just checked the plants and they are ready for their next watering, so today I'll be giving them their next nutrient feeding. But first I just wanted to give you guys a close up on the plant so you can see how they're doing. Also just discovered I got myself a little spider friend and you just dashed off, he's in the black part there so you can't see him over there he goes. So I've got a little spider in here protecting the garden holding down the fort. Spiders are great because they will eat any past and they don't harm the marijuana plants. So let them live and if they start spinning webs in your plants, just each couple of days remove the web and they will grow a new one. But definitely don't kill the spiders because they do help out a lot.

 All right guys so here we are 4 day 6 of the week with the plants like I said, and he's coming in for a close-up, and they are budding but they are also doing really well in terms of veg growth and they still have a long ways to go even though they have started biting. They are still going to get a lot taller and I am done with the training and LST as you can see I've got all my tops going up now and they are all pretty well spaced out. I might every once in awhile then them into a certain direction does this mean top here is being kind of stubborn and keep staying over the rest of the plant. 

 These guys are still going up and another little tip or trick that I want to share with you guys is leaf talking. So for example this big family for right here is covering up the stop down here from getting enough light to grow up, so what you can do is just kind of Tuck the leaf under that top so I can get more light from the grow light and then that way we'll get tall enough to grow up above the canopy.

 So another good example of this is right over here this top the stop right here was covered by this Big fan Leaf over here, so what I'm doing is just pulling that down below so it can be exposed to all of the light and that is pretty much it for the trick. This one over here is doing really well and again it's got that nice even canopy up top and all of these cops have grown up nicely. I also raised the light a couple inches today just  just because they're still showing signs of that light stress, but I am surprised cuz there is a good amount of space but anyways if they are showing signs of Lights Stress just raise it up until they aren't anymore and then you can start lowering it. Usually once they start budding more they will be able to handle a closer distance. But for now I'm just going to give them what they are asking for.

 I checked the soil and it is dry an inch deep for all of the plants,  so I'm going to do this week's nutrient feeding now, and this is the third one that I'll be doing. The first one I did at 1/4 strength, the second one I did at half strength, and this one will be at ¾ strength.  What I am doing is since they are flowering I jumped ahead to the first week of flower on the seating schedule and this is the soil feeding schedule since I'm in the ocean Forest. So I'm doing 3/4 strength of week 5 which again is the first week of flower. And I did everything I had on this list but I also added the kangaroos since I have yet to do that and I still want these guys To get some good root growth going since they are still going to bed where grow a lot in terms of veg and in terms of size, not just buds at this point.

I also added my Cal Mag and I just did three quarters of a teaspoon since I'm not doing full strength just yet,  And then I PH it to 6.3.   All right now let's do the watering, and again I've got about A gallon mixed up right now and I'm probably going to use all of that on these plants, but we will see how much they take before they start getting runoff. So again you are going to want to I'm restA gallon mixed up right now and I'm probably going to use all of that on these plants, but we will see how much they take before they start getting run off. So again you are going to want to I'm restirring everything because the nutrient mix has been sitting for awhile.

So you really just want to make sure everything is mixed up really well. And then I'm just going to water slowly each plant a little bit at a time and just cover up all of the topsoil so it's wet and then move on to the next Plant. And then what you are doing now is just letting the other plant that got watered, that plan and evening out throughout the soil and then you can come back for another bit of water to even that out some more.   but just soaking it completely with all of the water you're going to give it at once is just going to move the soil around a lot and the plant won't be able to up take all of that nutrient you're feeding it, so it's kind of going to waste a lot. So letting it soak in a little bit at a time is Going to let your nutrients go a lot further and your plant is going to be more effective using them.

So I don't think I'm getting any runoff just yet I think that water on the ground is just over spell so I'll keep watering. Sometimes you might notice your leaves droop right after you water and that's okay no problem there, it's just the leaves are heavy so they are going to hang down a little bit, but they will pop  back up after that water or nutrients feeding has soaked and more. All right, so they are still a little bit left of the nutrients but they seem to have plenty right now so I'm going to leave it at that, and I will be back for Day 7 and 24 hours.

Again temperatures right now are at 75 degrees and I'm trying to keep it in the range of at least around 72 to 77 fahrenheit Max. Humidity is in the 55 to 65% range and right now it looks like it's just under 60%. And like I said I raise the light a little higher I’m using the 900w So if your plants aren't showing any signs of heat stress or light burn, then there really isn't any reason for you to raise that yours. So definitely just asked me down below in the comments if you need a more specific answer to your grow. All right I'll be back in 24 hours.

All right growers we are back 4 day 7 the last day of week 3, and I'm just going to show you guys how the plants are looking, nothing needs to be done to them at this point, they are good on water and I'm done with the training so I am just letting the tops grow up as they start to flower.  You can see this one is the furthest along in terms of budding and  with Autos they grow alot in terms of vegetative growth while they are in 4 hours so these ones will still grow up a lot. Same with all these other ones, so hoping they are going to be at least double this height by the time all is said and done. And of course the buds will be much larger as well. You can see the two in the back formed nice even canopies, and then the two in the front or catching up at this point and they are starting to fill out on that other side as you can see.

 Here is a good aerial view of the plan so you can see how the tops are all spreading out so that they can all be underneath the light evenly. You can see here  these ones have all spread out Nicely, and they are all having a lot more tops then they would without the training and it's going to allow for them to have a lot larger yields per plant. Be sure to stay tuned for next week's video which will be week 4 for these plants being in these pots.  During that week we should see a lot more in terms of budding as well as vegetative growth.  Since I haven't done any LST for a few days, they should start shooting up big time.

 All right GreenBox Growers, that concludes week 3 of the LST Autoflower series and like I was saying in this video I am no longer going to be doing low stress training to the plants. As I want them to just grow up tall and start the flowering phase. Otherwise they are going to stay really short and they won't be using much in terms of Bud. Be sure to stay tuned for week 4 of this grow series which will be out in the next week or two and in that video These plants are Going to get a lot taller like I was just mentioning and the buds are going to get a lot bigger and stick here.

 If you guys enjoyed the video please give it that thumbs up and don't forget to comment below with your feedback. Also don't forget to subscribe and turn on notifications for updates on my latest grows. As always thank you guys for watching and until next time…

Green Crack Flower Strain Review

HomeGrown Green Crack Strain Review


 

What's up Cannabis Growers and welcome back for another awesome episode of GreenBox Grown. Now today I've got some homegrown Green Crack that I'll be reviewing for you guys, and of course it was grown by yours truly. And so I'll be grinding some of that up and smoking it out of the Dabuccino Which I've got in the bathroom right now and I'm going to bring out in just a sec. I also have my laptop over here so I'm going to be on Leafly to give you guys the strain details about genetics and lineage and how to grow it, and ideal conditions and stuff like that. And of course before we get started I got to remind you guys to check out our MERCH at greenboxgrown.com under the Merch and Smoke tab. 

Also don't forget to check out the link Down Below in the description to check out our Patreon Page where you can sign up for 1-on-1 growing advice from myself, where I work with you over the phone each day Guiding you from seed to harvest so you get the best results possible.  Alright, so now that you guys know what we're doing in today's video, let's get started!

  All right guys I got mr. debit Chino out over here and he looks like he's about to 4 a cleaning so I'll probably do that later today but not just yet. So I'll be grinding at this little nug cuz I'm not really wanting to go on this big guy up just yet, actually let me give you guys a close up so you can see The Snug up close.

 All right so I'll be saving of that nug for last of course, and I'm going to ground this guy up and while I'm doing that I'm going to reach you guys some of the background details on the Green Crack Strain. Says you guys know already it's a hybrid, sativa dominant, and it's good for grown Outdoors or indoors, and it's a very energetic and happy high.  It's other effects are uplifting focused and euphoric, and it's just a sativa dominant strain so it's got those effects of course. For lineage it just says skunk number 1 as I guess it doesn't know what the other parent genetics are for that.

 For grow info it's a very easy strain to grow, and like I said it's great for outdoors and any conditions any growing conditions. It is a really tall plant but that's kind of the sativa way and what else? It's about a medium yielding strain so it's going to harvest 1 to 3 ounces per square foot of grow space so that's not too bad. And it's got a really short flowering time, only seven to nine weeks. The stretch is pretty minimal to so you can fill up at That time pretty full before you flip it over to flower but obviously not too full cuz you want to save some room. 

Four flavors it's got earthy, citrusy, and sweet, I don't know about earthy but it definitely smells sweet in there. So yeah that is pretty much all of the info that you guys really need. It's got some test data, so let's see. Very low in CBN, very high and CBG, but for the other cannabinoids it's pretty low. Thcv has a .08% so not much there. So you guys we are now ready for the best part of the video as the bowl is now packed. Put the laptop away and it is time to get a little lit! Oh I forgot the lighter but I have an electric one here so let's see if I can get the bowl lit with this electric lighter. Cheers guys.

Very smooth, it tastes just like it smells, I'm feeling the head high but I can tell it is an energetic high and I've been smoking this for a little while not as you guys can see. But just like I red the effects are very similar as well as the song The Taste. Amazing strain and I have a lot of knee pain because I tore my ACL and meniscus back in high school playing sports. It still gets really stiff and sore on a cold and rainy day, and I found  that smoking this strain is great because it is a really relaxing body high.  It is energetic, but in terms of your muscles and body it is really good for giving you that warm relaxing sensation, so it is great for pain relief when it comes to my knee and other joints. Definitely recommend if you were looking for something for that kind of pain relief.

 Alright guys I wanted to give you a close up of how it lights and I want to show you how it burns and how it has been properly flushed. You can see the ashes white when it is done so let's see if I can make this work.   You can see it is starting to turn white, but I have not yet burned it enough to completely show it.

Alright folks that concludes today's strain review of my homegrown Green Crack. But if you enjoyed the video please give it a thumbs up and comment below with your feedback.  Also don't forget to subscribe to our YouTube channel and to turn on notifications for updates on my latest grows.
