OG Kush Buds Getting Massive & Very Frosty!
What up GreenBox Growers and welcome back for the fifth week of flower to the OG Kush Screen of Green Grow series. Now this is also the 13th week overall for the entire grow series and since this is day one of week 5 of flower, that means it is 29 days exactly where this is day 29 of flower. If you guys remember at the beginning of this grow series, I showed you guys on the packaging that the seeds came in from Growers Choice seeds.
And it said this is about a 56 day flowering strain. So we are just over halfway through the flowering phase and I am really stoked on that because already we have some massive buds growing on here. So these are really going to fill out nicely over the next couple of weeks here as we finished the second half of the flowering phase so we have a lot to look forward to in these next couple of weeks.
All right so for this week we are just going to be continuing the normal nutrient and watering schedule along with lowering the lights and periodic defoliation. So now that you guys know what's going on in this week's episode come on let's get started with day one of the week!
Okay Growers so here we are over at the grow tent for day one of the week, and the plants are ready for their next watering. So it has been three plain watering since the last nutrients feeding but since we already have done weeks 5 6 and 7 from the feeding chart, that means we are now on to that next Sledgehammer flush before we do the next week of nutrients. Such a day that is what we will be giving the ladies, so I mixed in 2 teaspoons of the sledgehammer flush buy Fox Farm per gallon of water.
We've got to gallons of water mixed up here so a total of 4 teaspoons. And of course I mixed in the full tablespoon of the grape sweet by botanicare, and just to keep up with the Cal Mag I also did a full tablespoon of that total. So we will be splitting this to gallon mix between all four of the plants today. We will also be shaking up the CO2 canisters and probably by tomorrow I will be refilling them with new Replacements as they are just about expired.
Besides that we will be keeping the lights right at the same height they are at right now. And I am not going to be doing any defoliation today. It is not necessary and I'm probably going to hold off for a little bit on that. But just so you guys can see the buds are getting really Frosty and again dancing up and still fattening up a lot as well. So I will give you guys a lot of close-ups of that during the watering and then after that I will see you guys back here in 24 hours for the second day of week 13. Alright, Peace!!!
We are back another twenty-four hours later for day two of the week and today's update is going to be a rather simple one as there is not too much going on. We are not going to be lowering the lights today or doing any defoliation just want to lay off on any additional stresses that we have been adding to the plants. And now that we are kind of Midway through the flowering phase I just want to give them a few days to catch up with the added intensity that we have been adding lately. So we are just going to be shaking up our CO2 canisters today and remember we have two of them going in this tent.
And I am actually thinking tomorrow is when I will do the refill at they are still giving me some hissing which means they are not completely out yet. Besides that we are going to do a small watering today and we have half a gallon mixed up with 1.5 teaspoons of the grape Sweet by Botanicare. Again that is the bud sweetener for helping increase the great aromas as well as tastes and the bud. So we will be splitting half a gallon again between all 4 of the plants and I will give you guys some nice close-ups but how the buds are developing during that shot as well. Okay let's go take care of that watering and then we will be back for day 3 and 24 hours. Peace!
All right GreenBox Growers, welcome back for day 3 of the week. Now buds are looking really good, some nice noticeable development since yesterday's update. You can really just see they are getting fatter every day as well as a little denser and more covered with trichomes. So very happy on the development, we are not going to be lowering the lights any today as I want to wait another day or two before we do that again. But I did do a little defoliation earlier today, just removing any leaves that kind of crisped up or over yellowed.
You just want to take those out, and the reason being is because once they get crispy like that they start to break off and Flake. And you don't want little pieces of leaves getting stuck in your buds as they develop. So besides that we are going to be doing our next watering today and it is our a third plane watering since the last nutrients feeding the. So after this we will be doing our next flower nutrients. I've got two gallons mixed up here with about 1 tbsp of the grape sweet by Botanicare.
And I actually shook up my CO2 canisters earlier and there were actually hissing a lot so no need to replace them today. We are just going to play that day by day for now until we see that they are completely out. So that is it for today's update, I'm going to go ahead and get that watering taken care of I will get you some more close-ups on the buds during that shot as well. And then we will see you guys back here in 24 hours for the 4th day of the week!
We're back for day 4 of the week and the buds are just looking very nice and growing a tremendous amount every 24 hours! So ladies are ready for their next small watering today, as usual that is going to be a half gallon mixed up with 1.5 teaspoons of the grape sweet by Botanicare, again that is the bud sweetener. We will be doing a little defoliation today as you can see the leaves have curled and crisp up.
So we want to be sure to remove those as we don't want them flaking off on the buds below. We are going to keep the lights at the same distance for now as I don't see a reason to lower I'm just yet, we will continue with that process just holding off for a few days here. Besides that we will be shaking up the CO2 canisters that they are not yet ready for the refill. They are still going strong and that is pretty much it, just remember to maintain that proper humidity and temperature for this flowering stage. As you can see I have been doing so and we are getting some really excellent results because of it.
Every 24 hours there is a noticeable difference in the growth on these Buds and they still have a good, I mean we are a little over halfway through the flowering phase and they have already packed on a lot of weight. So very excited to see what results are to come. Alright so I am going to go ahead and do that watering and then I will see you guys back here in 24 hours!
Alright Growers, we are back now for day 5 of the week and a pretty basic update. We are first going to be doing a nutrient feeding today, and this is going to be two gallons split between all four of the plants. We are going to be doing the week 8 mix from the fox farm Dirty Dozen at full strength, and again we did that Sledgehammer flush last.
Don't forget to add 1.5 teaspoons per gallon of water of both the Cal Mag as well as the grape sweet Bud sweetener by Botanicare. We also just refilled the CO2 canisters with 1 refill packet each and then shook them up. And then finally I am going to be lowering the lights 1 in a piece today and then that will really do it for today's update. Don't forget to be defoliating a little bit each day as needed and then besides that we will just see you guys tomorrow in 24 hours which will be day 6 of the week. Alright Peace Growers!
We're back here now for the 6th day of the week and flower development is just keeping on with going tremendously. So very happy everyday with the new development that we are getting and you can see the buds are extremely Frosty, they are really packing on those trichomes and I mean to the point where it looks like it snowed in here on them. It like there was a little blizzard going on! So very stoked that we are only a little over halfway through the flowering phase because that means we are probably going to see these guys almost at least double in size. So just a lot of really good growth is going to happen here in the next few weeks and very excited to see that happen!
So for today all we are going to be doing is shaking up the CO2 canisters, I am going to hold off on to foliation for now as we really just want to minimize stress as much as possible now that we are about Midway through the flowering phase. That is going to help with maximizing yields as well as Bud development and potency. We are going to keep the lights at the same distance as we did just lower them yesterday 1 inch, but tomorrow we will probably be lowering another inch as well. Again don't forget to shake those CO2 canisters if you are using them. Now we are ready for a watering today, it is just going to be one of our small in between waterings as you can see the soil is pretty damp but it does look like if I didn't give them any water today they would be over dry by tomorrow is watering.
So making sure that they don't get under-watered, we are going to do just about a quarter of a gallon today, it is less than our normal half gallon on the in between waterings. And I'm going to be out in just one teaspoon of the grape sweet into that mix. So we will be splitting a quarter of a gallon with one teaspoon of grape sweet by Botanicare between all four of these plants. Suggest a quick look at those buds and then that’s pretty much it for day 6 of the week. So I'm going to go ahead and get this water and going and then I will see you guys back here in twenty-four hours for the last day of the week. A So I'm going to go ahead and get this watering going and then I will see you guys back here in 24 hours for the last day of the week. Alright, Peace!
Alright GreenBox Growers, it is now the last day of the week and just really good progress going on here with the buds. You can see in terms of the pistil development that is kind of slowed down now that we have really gotten to the point where it is now just the buds fattening up a little bit every day. Looking extremely Frosty at this point and they are still getting frostier Again by the day, as well as denser and filling out.
You can tell to how much they are filling out and thickening out and again that development is going all the way down to the bottom scrog net and even a little bit below that. So lots of buds developing near all the way through, doesn't look like we have any larfy nugs. We do have some smaller nugs at the bottoms but again those are just developing like here's an example Of one right here. And it is still developing all the way through, so there's going to be smaller in size but it's not going to be an airy low quality Bud. It is still going to be super dense, super Frosty and just very potent.
So I will give you guys another look on that in the shop coming up but yeah very very stoked on how these OG Kush nugs are turning out. So for today's update I am going to lower each light just an inch, we are getting close to the point of how low we are going to be going over all. You don't want to be touching the buds but you know the max distance is probably going to be 10 in from the tops of the nugs or the tops of the colas. So again lowering the one in each Tom I going to be doing a watering today. This is the first plane watering since the last nutrient feeding and again 1.5 teaspoons per gallon of water when it comes to the grape sweet Bud sweetener by Botanicare.
Now other than that I'm going to be shaking the CO2 canisters and then that is going to conclude this week's update. So I'm going to go ahead and get that water and started. No defoliation today I mean you can just plug off any leaves that have crisped up at this point. But you don't really need to be removing as you should have removed the majority of them already. And then the rest will come down come Harvest Time. She just going to do that water in today, shake up the canisters and then lower the lights. All right I will see you guys back here next week for I believe it is the week 14 update. Alright, Peace Growers!
Ok GreenBox Growers, so that officially concludes week 13 of the OG Kush Screen of Green Grow series! Now I am very stoked because as I keep saying we just passed or are about a week over the halfway mark of the flowering stage and already we are having tremendous Bud development. So the sky is the limit with this grow right now I think the yields are going to be huge, the buds are going to be extremely potent and already they are really Frosty and dense.
And like I keep saying we still have a couple probably more like three to four more weeks to go with flower before we are finished. So lots of development and size to come! Now is always I just want to thank you guys for watching this week's episode, I really hope you enjoyed it and I should be back shortly with the week 14 update to this grow Series, so until then…
