Week 1 of Flower for the NukeHeads Grow Series

Flower has Officially Begun! (Week 8 Overall)


 
 

All right GreenBox Growers, we are officially back here for week 8 of the NukeHeads grow series which means it is day 1 of flower now. So very exciting time for this grow series and I will be going over that watering schedule as well as the changes on how you should be handling your plants now that we are in flour. And that will all be covered throughout this week's video. So before I get started I want to remind you guys as always to check out our patreon page via this link where you can sign up for one-on-one grow Guidance with myself, and there I will be helping you over the phone each day via text or phone call. 

Just kind of guiding you along with your plants showing you what to do to get the same kind of results that I'm getting here in these videos. Also feel free to check out our MERCH on the GreenBox Grown website under the Merch & Smoke section. And how do you guys know what we are doing in this week's video, let's get started with day 1 of the week!

Aright, we are out here in the garage for day one of the week as well as day 1 of flower, and you can see yesterday was that last defoliation I did on the plants and you can see all of the different tops are standing back up in her kind of spread out finding their own little area of light For them to grow in. So you can see before the Grape Ape back here in the middle it was kind of towering over the Skittles in the back right, and so I trimmed that up and it's got a lot more light making it down there so hopefully those buds are getting enough to get nice and large. And then I was also showing you guys I had the second light on but I have them kind of pointing outwards instead of straight down just so all areas of the tent can get plenty of light.

 So now that we are in flower, no more missed and you do not want to do that any further and you are going to want to make sure that no light leaks and during the dark period as that is really important.  I'm going to be watering them today and it is their second plane pH water that I will be doing, probably about a gallon and a half per plant at this point. You still want to be getting a lot of good run off and it is going to be exciting to see how these guys start to develop in the next few days here especially since we did that strong to foliation on them. 

You will see there were some branches that before the deflation they were stuck below the canopy and so they weren't getting enough light to really stand up completely or make their way up words. So they were kind of growing sideways. So we will see if these guys will stand back up during this process now that they have more light reaching them. They should, it should just take a couple more days. But we will keep an eye on that, so that is it for day 1 of flower as well as day 1 of the week, I'm going to do that watering now of the plane pH water. And then I will be back here in 24 hours for day 2 of the week, alright peace guys!

All right growers so we are back for day 2 of week 8 which means it is also officially Day to a flower. So wanted to show you guys the plants are looking really good since that last defoliation. You can see that all of the branches and tops are standing up nice and straight and the leaves have flattened out. They are not really curled like before when they were looking a little distressed from the deflation, so that is all normal and it usually takes a day or two for them to straighten back out which you can see they have done here. 

Now another cool thing is I showed you some of those branches that were covered up by the canopy they had kind of bent over and folded over a little bit because they were not getting enough light, but now they are standing right back up Facing towards the light.  So you can see this main top right here was actually facing towards the ground kind of folded and flopped over about a day and a half ago when I first defoliated them. And there were a couple over here as well but I think they are standing back up. You can see there's one down below there still pretty low Under The Canopy but it is getting enough because I send them out enough. 

A little bushy over here I may have to take a couple more fan leaves just because of that but other than that everything is looking good. Remember you don't want leaves laying on top of each other from different branches, you want them to have enough space so they aren't doing that. And it is going to be very exciting to see this main cola form, because you can see it is just about a foot away from the light. Now these plants have started forming their pistols they are kind of their very first pistils. Let me see if I can give you guys a good shot on that. it is just right, just kind of right at the nodes you can see.

A couple little white hair starting to form and little pistils coming off the side. You can tell to because at the tops, the leaves kind of stopped getting larger and they yellow a little bit right before those big pistol start to form at the center. So that is it for today's update, I'll be back in another 24 hours for day 3, And just remember no more misting of the plants and 12 hours on 12 hours off. You want to make sure it doesn't get too hot in here especially during this time. In fact for temperature you're actually going to want it to be a little lower.

 So like at a range of that night you wanted to be in the high 60s like 68 to 69. And then during the day about 72 73 with the humidity right around 55%. A little higher is okay but you don't really want to be in the 60% range any longer. So I will see you guys back here shortly for the next day of the week.

What up GreenBox Growers we are back here now for day 3 of the week and you can see the ladies are doing really well. This Grape Ape here in the back row with the NukeHeads  row of course you can see it's really dominating the whole tent. You can see it's about 4 in taller than this Pineapple Chunk right next to it. And then the rest of the tent it is probably a good 6 inch taller than the rest of the plants. You can see just how healthy and vibrant her vegetative growth is. And now she is starting to flower, they are all giving off a really strong smell already. 

So I definitely have that carbon filter running at all times, now they were ready for a watering today which I already did and that was their third plane pH watering since their last nutrient feeding. And that next watering is going to be there first mix of flowering nutrients. So that will be exciting because that is going to give them a little boost and turns of Bud growth. So that is really it for today, I gave each plant about a gallon and a quarter and in between that in a gallon and a half and that they were getting a decent amount of runoff from that amount. 

So that works really well, now I will be back here in 24 hours for day for the weekend in the meantime just make sure the climate inside your tent stays accurate and on point as that is really important now that we are in the flowering stage. Alright peace guys!

 What up Growers we are back here for day 4 of the week and the plants are just doing amazingly. I kind of adjusted the position of some of them because as you can see this back right Skittles plant was getting pretty overcrowded and pretty overshadowed by the grape ape.  Now that I have spread the plants out a little further you can see though her branches are doing much better standing right up, and it looks like they are even getting taller. 

So that should help a lot and of course the Grape Ape is just going crazy as always, that back one there. And all of the rest of the plants are looking really good you can see they are starting to solidify those branches opposed to Growing them up words and that is just going to help so they can hold that weight of those buds as they form. So no need for watering today, just going to get a give you guys a good look at how the foliage is doing and everything is looking nice and healthy. 

Now I might still be removing some fan leaves as we go through out the flowering face, like you can see that big guy right there is kind of taking up and blocking a lot of light so taking those out will help for sure. Now you can see the pistols are starting to develop a little further each day, so let me see if I can give you guys a good shot here. So you can see a couple white pistils for me and a few of the green ones, and I'm going to say by the end of this week we will have a nice noticeable amount going. So that is really it for today's update and I will be back in another 24 hours for the next day of the week, all right peace guys!

What up GreenBox Growers, we are back here another 24 hours later for day 5 of the week. And again this is still that first week of flower for these NukeHeads plants. Everyone is doing really well and I want to show you guys that they are still going to be times you are going to defoliate further with your plants. It is not just a one-and-done type of situation, so like throughout each day I'm kind of looking through seeing are there any leaves laying on top of each other like over here. 

Or where they look like they are colliding and growing into each other. And what I will do is just remove some of those leaves to open up some light and space for those branches. So it is just the fan leaves that I am removing, so you can see like this it is a leaf that has a stem going all the way to the main stock. It isn't like this growth up top here where it is kind of like a bud site would be, it is just as fan leaves. So always keep an eye out for that, you can take them out one by one now that we did that mean deflation. 

I just checked the soil and they are not yet ready for a watering but they sure will be by tomorrow, and that will be that first nutrient mix of the flower nutrients, so get excited for that. But other than that I am really stoked on how the plants are doing. You can see all of that foliage is just really healthy and thriving. 

And not a whole lot of Bud development going on, but that is alright because we are still sort of in that transitional phase. Here is a good little close up for that Grape Ape, you can see that big stock in the back. But I am seeing that all of the plants are definitely female, you can see this one right here she is growing some callux already with some nice try comes up going on them already right at the base there so just keeping an eye on all of those to make sure that nothing Hermes.

 But that really only happens if you stress them out so nothing to worry about, but again foliage is looking really good no more misting now that we are in flower, and just to remove those fan leaves as needed just to open up some space for light to get through and to make it to the plants aren't over crowded. Now that is really it for today's update, but of course I will be back here in 24 hours for day 6 of the week. Alright peace guys!

What up what up Growers, we are back here 24 hours later for day 6 of the week and today they are ready for their next watering which is going to be there first nutrient mix of flower nutrients. But before I show you guys what I'm going to be mixing up let me just give you guys some nice close-ups on how the plants are doing. So you can see some of the leaves were some of the fan leaves are a little droopy in that is just because they really dried out and are ready for that watering. They are very thirsty and it has been really hot the last couple of days here in Northern California so they dried out a little faster today than I expected. 

And you can see also that is why the leaves have kind of taco dip towards the top of the plants. Just because it has been pretty hot out. But other than that the plants are looking really healthy, the smell is getting stronger by the day, and you can't see too much development going on at the woods just yet. Some more than others you'll see, there are some pistol starting to form. But nothing crazy so hopefully just a few more days and then that transitional period will be over.

And hopefully this flower nutes or this Bloom dose of nutrients will help get that flowering phase kicked off a little better. Not saying there's anything wrong at usually does take about a week or a week and a half for that transitional phase to kick in and get them going into that flower development. So just going to keep my eye open for that and make sure everything is healthy, besides that we do not see any toxicities or deficiencies, no light burn or stresses going on so that is good because the plants are obviously in Tip-Top shape.

 Which is important when you are going into flower now obviously you always want to have your plants in Tip-Top shape, but it is most important and even more important during flower to do that. Because if you do stress during flower it will affect your bud quality, now in veg you do not want to stress them out you want to avoid that obviously. But if you do stress the plants out in your vag, what is good is you can have some time to recover and get away from that stress so it does not affect the development, but like I said once they are budding you can't give them time to recover because the flowering has already begun. 

So now let's check out what I'll be doing for my week 1 of flowers nutrient mix. Now course the back row is going to be getting the fox farm Dirty Dozen mix. And that is just going to be Week 1 of flower which is actually week 5 on the chart. So I will be doing that makes at full strength right here week 5, and then I will be doing a teaspoon of Cal Mag per gallon of water. For the front row here, I'm sorry for the back row that’s getting, so the front row is getting the fox farm, and the back row is getting the NukeHeads. so now all I will be doing is switching over to the plutonium Bloom bottle. The last one I was using was the uranium veg.

 So now we are doing the plutonium bloom. and it is just one scoop of this per gallon of water, and I will also be adding as well a teaspoon of Cal Mag per gallon of water for this mix. So each plans probably going to get about a gallon and a quarter to a gallon and 1/8 of water or of this nutrient mix. You just want to get about 20 to 25% run off at this point now that we are in flour. I'm going to mix that up and give this to them now and then that will be it for today’s update. Also you can see the lollipopping and defoliation is holding up really well down here below the canopy which is good.

 Going to keep all of that energy focused up top on those Main cola's and Bud development. Alright guys really quickly before I go I just wanted to give you guys a quick shot of the canopy from the same level or a little lower so you can see just how big it has gotten. It's got about 2 feet of depth to it, Which is good because the light is penetrating through all of that but you can see just how nice and spread out all those different tops are and it gives you a little bit of a better idea on how does buds are going to start forming.

 So just wanted to give you guys a nice little shot and then there is that massive Grape Ape in the back there that is the new kids of course. And they are just tearing up and I mean they are already about a foot away from the light, there's tallest tops but we will see that it's probably going to be the biggest Cola in the tent. going to be very exciting to see how that turns out. So I will be back here in 24 hours per day 7 of the week and until then... Happy growing!!!

We are now here for the last day of week 8 which means it is also the last day of the first week of flower. So the plants are looking really good and we are definitely starting to get some good development of pistols at the bud sites. Let me give you guys a good little close up on that and see if the camera will focus, you will also notice that the bud sites are starting to Yellow, not really yellow just lighten and color and that's also a sign that they are starting to Bud. And they are preparing for forming of those buds so yesterday I gave them their first dose of Bloom nutrients and you can see they really look like they blew up a lot. 

Especially the back to plants they're on the left, you'll see the Pineapple Chunk she is catching up almost to the Grape Ape here they are just a few inches different here. And they will probably slow down in height now since they are in flower now and they are getting close to those lights. So they will probably reach a maximum height around there. Maybe grow a few more inches, but you can see they really like that first dose of Bloom nutrients. And it seems to have really helped fill them out.

 I remember I really defoliated these guys twice really good, and also I have been removing leaves throughout each day just a little here and there. So pretty spectacular that they are already filling out the tent again for probably the third time here. Probably going to have to step up my defoliation game here in the next couple of weeks but we will see. 

But definitely some good vegetative and flowering growth going on right now and pretty soon it will just be flowering. So I will be back shortly for next week which is week 9 or the second week of flower where buy the end I'm hoping we'll have some really good development at the bud sites. And hopefully The early parts of those buds where we have those little kind of balls of pistils forming at the very center. You can see pistols coming off of the sides as well as forming at the top there. And once I turn that carbon filter off, the smell is pretty pungent at this point so they are pretty good in terms of water. 

We did those nutrients yesterday. And yeah so I haven't really compare the two nutrient lineups in a while here but again the front rows is the Fox Farm Dirty Dozen and the back row is the NukeHeads flower power package. I think the Skittles in the back here just got out beat by the great ape and that is why she stayed so short. She will still develop some nice buds but she is kind of getting blocked out a little bit. But overall I've got to say the back row which is the NukeHeads seems to be the best. As those two plants are monsters. Now the front row which is the dirty dozen is looking really good too. 

But they are just definitely not as big in size and height As you can see. So comparing the two there, now we do have to wait for these buds to finish developing and really start developing because it is not really about The vegetative growth in the end but really the buds and the quality of how they come out. As well as their size. So right now I would definitely say NukeHeads has won in terms of vegetative growth for the nutrients lineup. But now what we are looking at is how the buds turn out for each line up.   so I will say that NukeHeads got the first round here in terms of vegetative growth, And now we will see who wins in terms of Bud quality and size!

Alright Growers that officially concludes the 8th week of the NukeHeads grow series, which was also obviously Week 1 of flower. And I will be back shortly for that second week of flower where hopefully we will start to see a good amount of those pistols starting to form at the bud sites. As always thank you guys for watching, I hope you guys enjoyed today's video, and until next time…
 

Happy Growing!!!

Week 8 of the Low Stress Training Autoflower Grow Series:  Start of Flush

Week 8 of the Low Stress Training Autoflower Grow Series: Start of Flush

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.

Week 8 of The Indoor Cannabis Grow Series is now Live

Watch Week 8 of the Indoor Grow Series Below!


Hello and welcome back for week 8 of the Indoor Grow Series by GreenBox Grown.  This is also the third week of flower so bud growth should really start to take off during the course of this week.  I would also like to point out that I switched the small LED and put it on the other side of the tent to try and even out growth.  I didn't want these branches on the right to get any taller or they may not receive enough light to truly develop their buds.  Looking at these buds however, you can really notice they are already filling out and getting bigger by the day.

 

Alright so here we are for day one and the soil is dry enough for the next watering, so I will be giving a plain pH’d feeding.  These plants should still be getting in the range of half a gallon each and you want to have some runoff out the bottom as well.  Getting runoff out the bottom is important because it shows you have gotten the whole root zone wet, and you are also flushing out what was left behind in the soil from the last watering.

 

One day later, and again the buds look even bigger.  They are starting to form that round shape at the top just like a cola, and they seem to be growing towards the other bud sites on the branch so they will eventually connect.  You might be able to tell at this point that vegetative growth is really slowing down as the plant is channeling all of its energy to bud growth.  The bud sites are a white and yellowish color and you should really start to be able to smell it from standing nearby.

 

The soil is clearly dry so I will be doing the next plain pH’d watering.  It is important to not wait too long for the watering during flower as that will cause stress on the buds and slow their growth.   Always make sure to water on timeand to give each plant the right amount.

 

A few days later and bud growth is really taking off.  The fan leaves are really starting to get more and more skinny as the buds take over the plant.  Today will be a nutrient feeding, and I will be following the Week 7 mix of the fox farms dry dozen.  I will also be adding a tsp of cal mag and half a tsp of coco wet per gallon of water in this mix.  Then I will pH everything after string and it’s all ready to water.  I’m getting a really even watering all around so I don't miss any of the roots and all of the plant is able to drink.

 

This is the second to last day of the week and you should able to notice the buds are not made up of just white pistils, but they also are starting to grow dense bud as well.  You may also notice some trichomes beginning to form on the leaves closest to the bud sites.  These will eventually become what are referred to as sugar leaves, and will be covered with trichomes!   

 

Here we are for the last day of week 8 and I want to give you some close ups on the different buds.  The smell is really starting to become potent in this grow room and they are giving off a very citrusy smell!  The soil is dry an inch deep so I am going to do the final pH watering of this week.  Don't forget to soak the rock wool cube in the center if it is sticking above grown like the one on his plant on the left. 

That concludes week 8 of the Indoor grow series, and once you are finished with this video you can move on to week 9 for the middle of flower phase.  Until then, thank you for watching and as always...

HAPPY GROWING!
