Start of Flush for the Blue Amnesia Autos
What Up GreenBox Growers and welcome back to the most lit cannabis grow Channel on YouTube! Now today officially starts week 8 of my low stress training Autoflower grow series and I'm going to continue showing you guys updates on those buds as well as showing you guys the watering schedule with the nutrients, so for those of you who aren't following along you can continue to do so. This week I'm also going to start showing you the trichomes under the scope, that way you guys can see what the trichomes look like at the different levels of maturity and can also know what to look for when it's ready for flush as well as harvest.
Now before I get started with this week video I want to let you guys know I'm offering a free trial to my one-on-one grow guidance, and basically if you are struggling to grow your own plants at home or want to learn how to do so and don't know where to begin, the service is perfect for you because I will personally help you over the phone telling you exactly what to do. And I will also guide you from seed to harvest making sure that everything goes well for you. I also want to remind you guys to check out our MERCH and Smoke Gear on the greenboxgrown.com website, and now that you guys know what we are doing and today's video, let's get started!
Alright guys we are outside here in the garage for the first day of the week here and I'm going to give you another update on the buds. I just watered last night with the second playing pH watering since their last nutrient feeding, so no need to water today but I will be checking the try comes today on both plants and the front just to give you guys an idea of how they are looking right now. So buds are fattening up on all plants especially the Tangerine Dreams now that they are turning back on and catching back up to those Blue Amnesias. The Blue Amnesias are just about ready to start that flush maybe a couple more days to about a week we will see that once I check them with the trichomes here.
But yeah you can see all of the buds are fattening up and smelling really great, which obviously you can't smell them but you can take my word for it they do smell really good right now. Very citrusy and just very potent. All right so what I am going to be using today is my macro lens, and this is just really cool because it Clips right on to the phone over the lens and then works perfectly for looking at this trichomes. So let's get that on there and it's going to be a little blurry until we get close up. But first I will be looking at the trichomes on my tangerine dream that I have here on the front so this is going to be that but at the very top in the middle. That big main Cola. So here we are.
And it's probably going to be kind of hard at normal speed to tell the color of those trichomes, let me try to find a branch that isn't swaying as much but I will also slow down and give you guys a little slow mo clip here in a second. From what I can see though no Amber mainly milky with some clear possibly. But very dense and they are packing on densely which is good. Before I show you guys the truck comes on the blue Amnesia one thing I would like to say is only check at the trichomes that are directly on the buds. Not the ones that are on the sugar leaves because the ones on the sugar leaves will a mature a lot faster and Amber a lot more quickly than the ones on the bus so they are not a really good indicator of the level of maturity for the buds.
So what I am looking for is about 10 to 15% Amber which is then at that point when I start my 2-week flush. and that usually works out to making it so that the trichomes are about 25 to 35% And then the rest of course being milky. So that's the issue I'm going for of course but it's really up to you guys and your preference, but that's what I seem to really like and it seems really to work really well for me. So let me get this lens back on and we will look over here at the trichomes on the blue Amnesia. And again this is the one in the front, the front or right and I'm going to check that big bud that main big Cola in the middle. There we go, look at that, I mean you can really see how dense those trichomes are packed on and and kind of hard for me to tell but I think I am seeing some Amber and there but we will know once I do the slo-mo. Yeah I do think I say some Amber though.
All right guys so there is your first look at the trichomes on these guys, and I will continue updating you every couple days as they don't change very much from day to day in terms of their maturity. But I will keep you guys posted on how those are going and will let you know once they are ready to start that flush. All right I will be back in 24 hours per day 2 of the week, peace!
Alright I'm going to give you guys some slow-mo shots on those trichomes, so let's see if that helps you guys.
All right guys we are back here for the second day of the week, and the plants are actually ready or their next watering and that's going to be their third plane pH watering since their last nutrients feeding. I've got that all mixed up right here, and so I checked out the trichomes yesterday and showed you guys that and actually the blue Amnesia are ready to start flushing. So what I will do is after this water and since it will be the third, I will start the flush with the sledgehammer flush buy Fox Farm, and then after I do that I will just do the two weeks of playing at pH water for the blue amnesia's. And then once that is done they will be ready for Harvest. Now the way I determined if they are ready is by the color of their trichomes, and I like to harvest around 25 to 30% amber so that means I start my flash once those Amber trichomes are at about 5 to 10%. So that is what I've got and I will show you guys another close up today on the trichomes.
The Tangerine Dream plant still have a few weeks to go since they were slow down by the lights stress, so looking at their trichome summer to starting to turn milky and most are still clear which means they still have some time to go but that is all right. So now let me just show you guys the close up on those try come. And I won't be showing you guys the watering today just because it's the same as always but I would like to let you guys know that I am using exactly a gallon per plant and that is just about the right amount for them. So just to let you guys know that is how much water they are getting.
Alright so, let me just get a close-up steady view of this for you guys. And you should be able to see there are a decent amount of Amber and there may be a little bit more than 5 or 10% but that is all right. Now let me show you some of the lower but here, it's kind of moving around from the breeze but that's all right. And then I want to show you guys what they look like on the less mature buds of the Tangerine Dream. So you can see they are a little more on the clear side, there are some Amber but those are just really burnt from the light stress.
But one way you can really tell got this plant is still got some time to go as those white hairs that are still kind of growing out. Once those kind of brown and curled in that's how you know it's a little further along. Kind of like these blue amnesia's here, you can see all of the hairs are curled in the buds are really fat and plump, they are not kind of like opened up like this one, they are kind of close to us. So that is kind of how you can tell as well. Alright guy said that is it for your day 2 of week 8 update, and I will of course be back in another 24 hours.
What Up GreenBox Growers and welcome back for day 3 of week 4. Now all of these buds here are really starting to fatten up here on the Tangerine dream's, both plants that is, really filling out nicely so I'm stoked on that. the smell is really strong in here and very potent, I mean I could smell it through the chance even with the filter going right now, and I like I said yesterday after checking the trichomes I am going to start flushing the blue Amnesia plants once they are ready for their next watering so I will start that with the foxfarm sledgehammer flushing agent. And then the next watering for the Tangerine dreams will be there nutrients feeding since they are ready for nutrients and not ready to be flushed yet. So nothing really else yet to be doing to the plants except for making sure that temperature and humidity is at the same level around 55 50 to 55% for humidity and then for temperature I'm saying around you know 67 to 77° Fahrenheit during the day maybe a little warmer and then at night a little on the cooler side.
Alright guys I also just wanted to give you guys your daily close up on the butt so you can see how they have grown since yesterday. So this one right here this is that Tangerine Dream plant in the front, this is just one of those side colas, let's see I can get it to focus there you go. And then of course in the middle here is that a big Cola going all the way to the top. Starting to look really nice. So You guys already know what the blue amnesia's look like since I'm always doing close-ups on those but I want to show you guys the other Tangerine Dream here towards the back. You can see it's got the big main Cola here with a lot of other side colas. And they are all actually really fattening up underneath the canopy as well not just above. You can see that main Cola let's see here is some good growth going all the way up and down. Damn. All right guys show that is your day 3 of the week update on these buds.
Alright guys we are back for the next day which is day 4 of week 8, and the plants are ready for their next watering so it's going to be a little bit of a different set of this time around since the blue in the years are now ready to flush. So I'm going to be doing that next nutrient feeding for the Tangerine dream's which will be the week 9 nutrient feeding here. On the foxfarm schedule as we have been following. Let's see, yes a week 9 right there and I will be following that mix for the Tangerine Dream nutrient feeding.
And then of course I will be doing it at 75% strength this time and then with the Cal Mag as well at .75 teaspoons per gallon of water. Again I'm mixing up about 2 gallons of the nutrient mix since I'm watering about a gallon per plant here. They really do need that much. And then for the blue Amnesia plants I'm going to be using this Sledgehammer flush right here to start flushing them or at least start the flush, and this mix helps release the extra nutrients And fertilizers that are left behind in the soil, so that once I start flushing with a plain pH water that stuff is already broken up and we'll get out of that really easily.
So they recommend two teaspoons per gallon of water and I'm going to be giving a gallon of this mix to each of the Blue Amnesias so I mixed up two gallons total and that's what I'm going to show you guys today is me watering them. I won't be showing you guys the nutrient feeding just because you've already seen that before and it's just going to be the same mix, but you guys haven't seen me do the flushing with the SledgeHammer before. So now that you are flashing you will want to get more runoff than you have been this entire grow, because you are literally doing just that, flushing all of the nutrients and fertilizers that were left behind in the soil you are flushing all of those out right now so that when you go to smoke the bud you don't have to be smoking those nutrients left behind. Because that is going to taste really harsh and it's also very unhealthy to be smoking that. So this is going to help flush that out so you're going to have a much healthier better-tasting bud and just higher-quality.
Now it's always I'm just going to water a little at a time and then I will let it soak in and then give it some more, but like I was saying, you really want to get a good amount of runoff I'm talking like 30 to 35% here. So again I use a wet vac to vacuum up the runoff, Way easier that way but some people like to just dump it out by pulling the mat Out Underneath, but that's kind of a hassle so I just do what the wet vac. So there's that first soaking and I'm already getting some run off so I'll probably give more than that since I've only done about three-quarters of a gallon, I'll finish the rest of that gallon for this plant. And then I'm going to water the rest of them.
Real quick before I go and give you guys an update on the Tangerine Dream buds. Definitely still growing and tons of those white hairs that are still filling out and growing up now that the lights have been adjusted. Same with the back plant here and you can see how much they fattened up over the week. And then same with all of those different colors that are now growing on the Tangerine Dream here. Trying to get a good close-up so I'm trying to get this light in there. So there is a decent close up for you guys. Damn, alright so there's a good close-up for you guys, you can see It's getting Frosty are the hairs are filling out and the buds are getting much fatter.
What up Growers we are back another 24 hours per day five of the week. The blue Amnesia plants have responded really well to that first flushing with a sledgehammer, now of course those Tangerine Dream buds are still really fattening up and it seems like since yesterday with that nutrients feeding, growth has even sped up more. So you can see I am going to try and give you a good aerial view of the buds, but you can see there are tons of them and you can notice they are starting to connect. Like at the top main Cola is here connecting down to those next sets of buds and hopefully it will continue to do so down. And it's been doing so a little bit on these other touch but not much so probably going to be a couple of different nugs throughout these different branches. But you can see the Tangerine Dream in the back right here those buds seem to be connecting a lot further down the branch Kind of like how I main Cola should.
So these are really nice and I'm happy with how they turned out, they'd actually turned a good purple color and I don't think Tangerine Dream normally does that so that's probably just from some of the stress but who knows. And you can see the white hair still standing up really tall so that is a good sign that we still have a lot of growth in the bud development to go. So here's another close-up on that Tangerine Dream main Cola in the front here, and again just maintaining proper humidity and temperature levels and making sure fresh air Is being cycled into the tenant and that there is a constant Breeze very mellow and gentle breeze going through the plants. You can see there's a lot of white hair still in the Tangerine Dream plant here as well. So a lot of development but still really Frosty already. Alright guys so that is your day 5 update for week 8 and I will be back of course in another 24 hours for day 6 of the week.
What up GreenBox Growers we are back 24 hours later, for day 6 of the week and the plants not actually ready for their next watering just yet they are still pretty moist and the soil. And I think that is because it's been a little colder out weather wise and Northern California lately so they haven't really been drinking as much because of that. Buds are still filling out nicely and all plants and again the blue Amnesia is here are flushing or I am flushing them at the moment, so once that's done I will be harvesting them. And this Tangerine Dream and the back isn't too far away from that process either. Probably the middle of next week or after this week I'd say after this week it's probably going to be another half of a week to a full week before I start the flush. And then two weeks probably for the Tangerine Dream in the front to finish or at least be ready for flush. So I'll probably have to water them sometime tomorrow earlier in the day. Because They are getting close to being dry enough but they aren't really there yet. So I will be back for that watering and day 7 of this week. All right, peace guys!
Alright Growers here we are for the last day of week 8 and we are out here in the garage for the Autoflower tent. And these autoflowers are ready for their next water and so it's going to be a plain pH watering at 6.3 as a usual. Now I'm flushing the Blue Amnesia plants still So that's going to be the same for them but I'm going to really soak them, and then the Tangerine dream's I'm not flushing yet so they will still get a couple more nutrient waterings in there, but they are still on the plane pH water so that's what I will be giving them as well today.
But are also really starting to fatten up and get even denser with trichomes as I'm going to show you right now, and you can see just how much the Tangerine Dream plants are fattening up even just sent the last clip and in last week's video. But the blue Amnesia is here like I keep saying are really getting looking really good and it this in my opinion is like dispensary grade cannabis. So let's see if I can get a good shot for you guys so you can see Exactly what I'm talking about. Keep it nice and steady for you but you can see how Frosty and how dense those trichomes are on there. Now the bud itself didn't get that big but the bed itself is really fat as frick. And you can see it's got a couple other little Colas coming off of there, they are pretty small too but this big main one here is really nice and they smell great. And the one in the back the other blue Amnesia Bud's got just as big and this one might actually yield some more because all of the coal is actually got really big.
But they're all nice and Frosty and just the same kind of quality and same look as the blue Amnesia in the front. There's a good kind of zoomed out picture, but yeah you guys will get the picture on how Frosty they are once I have trimmed them up. Oh and that's another thing I wanted to point out to you guys as I started to pull & Defolate these plants as the leaves start to die off. I just clipped them off if they are hard to reach to the stem. Like ones like this I'll just clip them off, but ones like this where I can get to the stem like this one if you guys can see that guy back there. You can tell it's yellow and the tips are curled up and crispy so I'm just going to yank her up gently. And that's done. And just toss that, pretty cool looking Leaf right there but yeah those aren't going to help anymore the plant is done with them, so that is why when you pull ever-so-slightly it just comes right off like it was already detached from the plant.
So yours are good close up on the Tangerine Dream Bud here in the front and you can see it's pretty Frosty, not as much as the blue Amnesia that's for sure and not his dance either but that is mainly because of the shock from the light that died did. The ones in the back that I did I really fattening out nice though the Tangerine dreams you can see. And that's a good example of some more leaves I'll be pulling off in a little bit here after this video, but yeah these buds are a little more darker in color. It's not really like a purple or anything it's just like a dark green maybe a little bit of purple in there, but I don't think that's a genetic quality I think that's just more from the stress. But who knows. You can see that the pistols are still standing up and are white for the most part so that's how I know I've got some time to go.
Alright Growers that officially concludes the eighth week of my low stress training Autoflower grow series. And as we are starting to wrap up this whole grow, I just wanted to mention that I am going to mainly be flushing the plants for the rest of this series, The Tangerine Dream Autos still have a couple nutrient feedings to go, but for the most part everything is going to be getting flushed and then prepped for Harvest, so let's get excited for that Harvest video that will probably be coming out in a few weeks. I just have to finish developing does Tangerine Dream buds of course as well as finishing flushing everything and then I will be harvesting.
