Week 4 of the Stealth Grow

Gorilla Glue Autoflowers Fully Flowering!


 
 

What up GreenBox Growers and welcome back for Week 4 of the Stealth Grow Series!  Now this week I will be continuing with the nutrients feeding schedule but we are going to be bumping up those Bloom boosters and flower nutrients as we are getting further into that flowering phase also I will be doing some more defoliation on the plants as they have more leaves developing after that first defoliation. I would also like to mention that we are pretty much in the thick of the flowering phase since we have been booming for about 2 weeks now and there is still going to be a lot of vegetative growth and you will notice that throughout the week.


 But the plants are definitely starting to switch their focus more over to the flowering side of things.  Alright Growers now that you guys know what we are doing and today's video, let's get started with the first day of the week where I will be doing that next nutrients feeding!


Alright folks we are here for day 1 of the week in the plants are actually ready for their next watering. So it is going to be there next nutrient feeding and it is the third one overall for this grow. And what I'm going to be doing is mixing three quarters of a teaspoon of all four of these. So 3/4 of a teaspoon of grow, micro, Bloom, and then the Cal Mag. Three quarters of a teaspoon of each of those per gallon of water. And I will probably be using or splitting a half a gallon of water between these two plants. And then outside the other four will probably get three quarters to a whole gallon split between all of them. Because they aren't as big as these guys just yet but anyways you can see doing really well in terms of that flower growth.


 Definitely getting larger each day and definitely almost due for some to foliation so I'm not going to be removing any of the big fan leaves up top today but what I will be removing is some of those leaves that are yellowing underneath or at the very bottom of the canopy. You can see down there there's just about probably two leaves per plant. A lot of times the cotyledon leaves or sometimes it's just fan leaves that have been shaded in or not getting enough light. So I'm going to clip those off so it is only healthy leaves on the plant and then probably towards the middle or end of this week I will be clipping off some of those larger fan leaves to do a little bit of a defoliation.


Now I wanted to mention the CO2 bags, now I have it really explain why it is beneficial to have added CO2 in the grow room. But on a very basic level, now I do have under the intro to Growing I do have information on co2 and how it helps but in this video I just wanted to give you guys a quick little overview. So essentially what the added levels or what the added amount of CO2 in the atmosphere does is it allows the plants to absorb more light energy into create more energy per square inch of growth. So for example if you were normally growing with a 600 watt light. You could probably bump up to 900 watts or closer to a thousand with the proper CO2 levels.


 And what that does is allows the plants to grow much larger, create more energy for Bud growth and development or Leaf growth, and not only does it give you bigger Buds and larger yields. But it will also during the vegetative stage increase growth speeds pretty rapidly. So you will get much larger plants in a lot shorter of a time. So what else is also really great about added CO2 levels is it allows the plants to handle higher temperatures and more extreme conditions in the grow room. So normally if you wanted the plants around 75 degrees Fahrenheit with enough CO2 in the room, you could get up to the 80s and they would actually Thrive and do just as well As normally. They wouldn't fry up or anything like that.


And that is pretty cool too because once you start adding more wattage or more power with grow lights, it's definitely going to raise the temperature. So that is pretty much it for today's update, just wanted to show you guys the buds and how they are developing and then of course I'm going to remove those lower leaves that are starting to yellow and die. 


And then after that I'm going to do that nutrient watering and again this is the third nutrient feeding For the plants overall for this entire grow. We are doing it at 3/4 strength today like I was saying so just to three-quarters of a teaspoon per gallon of water for each of these different nutrient bottles and then that'll be it. So I will be back here in 24 hours for day 2 of the week, alright peace guys!


 Alright Growers we are back here 24 hours later for day 2 of week for here, and you can see Bud development is really taking off here on this Grape I'm sorry on this Gorilla Glue Autoflower.  You can see she has nodes and Bud sites developing all the way down here below the canopy and this one is doing the same exact thing as well. The buds just seem to be a little less developed at this point.  Anyways, what I wanted to cover today is first of all I am going to be doing some major defoliation so you guys can see some good-sized fan leaves have grown out here. so I am going to be removing these leaves up top here as well as a good amount of the ones in the canopy down below here.

And I will be removing some on this plant as well, for these plants I will probably be removing about 15 to 20% of the fan leaves this time around. Now second thing I wanted to cover was actually about the exhale CO2 bags. So what I realized is you actually do have to open them up to activate the back. So when you first get them you will notice that the clip across the top there of the hanger it is actually slid over so that it is full and closing this ventilation pad right here. And that is actually where the CO2 flows out of from the bag. So all you have to do to adjust the bags of that is actually exposed and not creased off is you have to slide the top part off. You will see that the white handle you just slide it one way and it will come off of that yellow piece that is hanging it together.


Then you will just lower the bag so this little ventilation pad here is exposed and not creased off. So when it is creased it will be above the hanger so you want it to be below it of course. And then that will open the bag up. And then you just put the hangers slide it back over with the bag of creased of course with the crease above the ventilation pad. Rehang it in the room and you are all good to go. So yesterday I explained a little bit about CO2 and how Essentially it is really important that you are growing well before you add CO2 into the room. Is not like a miracle fixed that is just going to give you large bud.

 It is actually a tool you can use to put your buds over the top and terms of let's say you mastered your grow setup you are doing really well with the plants and now you just want to get even bigger and even better results. That's where CO2 comes in and an example of that is, so one benefit of having CO2 or higher levels of CO2 in the grow room is it allows the plants to absorb more energy per area. So that was important because let's say you add or increase the levels of CO2 in your grow room but you don't increase the amount of light your plants are getting. Well they aren't going to be able to use that CO2 to create or absorb more energy to create more growth. So then you are just wasting the CO2.


So let's say you are doing really poorly and you are not growing the plants well, you are burning them with nutrients or you’re drowning them by watering them too frequently.  Adding CO2 is not going to fix that it's not going to cause them to grow but better buds because it's not something that fixes those issues. It's just something that's almost like steroids it's just going to increase what they are already doing. So you may get a little more growth out of them but it's not going to fix the poor growing techniques. Again like with the lights, if you increase the CO2 levels, it's going to make it so that like steroids, a person can lift more weight so they can tear their muscles more and grow larger muscles.

 With the plants that increased level of CO2 allows them to absorb more energy from the light so in return they can grow larger Buds and have larger yields in the end. But again if you don't increase those weights when you are lifting on steroids, just like if you don't increase the amount of light if the plants are getting in the grow room. And they aren't going to be able to use that CO2 to grow larger. So that is your explanation for CO2, a little bit better and again with the exhale bags you do want to adjust them so that they are open and you want them set up so that they are a little bit above the top part of your plants. 

Because CO2 will sink down it is a heavier gas than air or oxygen and you also want it so that lets say if you have a carbon filter. You don't want to put your CO2 bag right next to that because the filter is just going to suck it right out of the tent. So what I do is I have it right over here in the corner, have it at the opposite end of where the fans are blowing the air out of the tent So that it doesn't get sucked out and instead it gets kind of pulled around the whole 10th and through the plants before getting pulled out of the tent.  So I'm going to do that defoliation right now and then I will be back to show you guys what that looks like right afterwards.


Alright folks here we are right after that the foliation and we actually took probably more like 25 to 30% of all of the leaves off of each of each of these plants. And you can see now they are going to, you can see I exposed a lot of those Bud sites that were covered by leaves. And now a lot of that light is reaching all of those Bud sites. So they are going to start filling out and you will notice a large difference and Bud growth by tomorrow. Usually you will see the most the first 24 hours right after the foliation and it does look like it is just the bare bones skeleton of the plant. But that is okay this is how you're going to maximize yield from your plants, especially with these autoflowers.

And it seems like here is the pile of leaves that I took off and if you don't feel like you are taking too many off then you are probably not doing enough. So that's how I know I'm doing enough  is when I feel like wow am I taking too many leaves off of these plants. it seems like they're only just a few left but you will see tomorrow when I come back to show you guys these ladies and how much they have progressed since this defoliation, you will be shocked. So I also recently just defoliated the other for plants that are downstairs, the other Gorilla Glue autoflowers that used to be in this tent.  So let's go head downstairs and check out how they are doing.


Also really quickly I just wanted to show you guys some nice clothes that's on the bud development has these ladies are having, it's looking really nice. And it is starting to smell pretty good as well and here. They haven't really started densening up too much yet but it is still a little early on. Just want to show you guys those nice white pistols going all the way down, that is a really good sign that we are going to have big full buds. Not just small little short ones, At the very Tippy tops. So you can see they are really filled out and especially now that I have done this defoliation, you will see tomorrow they are going to be even more devloped than today.  So there are some nice shots for you guys. So now let's go downstairs to check out those other for Gorilla Glue autoflowers.


So here we are with the other Gorilla Glue autoflowers and you can see, did a lot of diff aleacion on all of the plants so it is just the barebone minimum, just like I did upstairs and another thing that is interesting. First off this big plant right here with the biggest buds. That is the one that was about a week ahead of the rest. So that is as expected. But I don't know if you guys remembered in the beginning of this serious, did talk about how most of them are going to be in different sized pots. Cuz I wanted to compare how they grew differently depending on that. So first off the one that was in the one gallon air roots pot, that one as you guys can see grew the smallest and didn't really have, it only really had two little branches off shoot from the sides.


So guessing because that was the one in the smallest pot that is why the plant grew the smallest, and I am assuming is what happens a lot with these autoflowers as it seems like once you transplant them into their pot, once those roots hit the bottom of the pot and start filling it out and going out horizontally. That is when they start to flower. So I noticed also the smaller ones are a lot further along in terms of the flowering process when compared to the bigger ones like this guy right here that is in the good I think 4 gallon air roots pot or maybe a 3-gallon I forget.


But anyways just did that defoliation on them, they are all looking really good and hopefully now these two larger ones are going to start flowering a lot faster now that I did that defoliation. Now another thing is you can see my exhale CO2 bag here I've got it adjusted so the vent is open and you can also see that it is pointed right in towards the room so the plants are getting all of that CO2. So that is it for two days update, no need to water the plants and I will be back here in 24 hours for day 3 of the week. Alright peace Growers!


It is now day 3 of the week for the stealth grow series here, and it is also 24 hours since that last defoliation I showed you guys and yesterday's clip. So I noticed a tremendous difference in Bud growth since yesterday, I want to see what you guys think about it. But what I noticed is the pistols are a lot larger, there are a lot more of them all the way up and down the trunk or the main trunk as well as all of the main tops and Bud sites. You can see it looks like they are Filling out even further. So I am really stoked on these results, I think they have progressed a lot in terms of Bud growth since yesterday. And hopefully it works out with your plants just as well as this.

But honestly with defoliation, I will probably be doing even more defoliation as we go along in this grow because there will be more leaves that develop. And in place of the ones we just removed, but you guys will see that each time you do the defoliation it is just going to speed up that bud growth and increase it that much more each time. So the plans are actually dry and ready for their next watering, today is going to be their first plain pH watering sense that last nutrients feeding. And I am probably going to be splitting about half a gallon between both of them at this time. 


Maybe a little bit more, but you want to be getting all of the topsoil wet at this point and you don't need to get too much runoff just maybe a very little bit or a small puddle of water that comes out of the bottom will be fine. But nothing crazy at this point because they really aren't too large just yet and they are just starting to fill out. So let's go check out actually downstairs the four other Gorilla Glue autoflowers that I defoliate it yesterday so you guys can see how those ones turned out as well here. So let's go check that out downstairs.


Alright so before we had downstairs to the other grow tent I wanted to mention one other thing, and that is  it is starting to smell in this tent now from the plants now that they are a little bit further along into the flowering phase. So what I recommend to you guys at this point, if you are worried about the smell and keeping this as a stealth grow. Is you should hang up and start up your carbon filter system.  So for this size of a tent a 2 by 4, I just recommend a 4-inch system and I will actually be bringing my iPower 4 inch carbon filter and ducting system with inline fan. 


And I will be hanging it up over in this corner so that way what it will do is pull the CO2 from across the other end of the tent over the other plants and around the plants and then I will pull it out of the tent or pull out the old are out of the tent and bring in some fresh air and. So that is where I will be hanging it up and now is about the time where I would recommend starting it just so you don't let the smell out of the tent which would compromise the stealthiness of your grow setup. So now is definitely a good time to get that started if you are going to be using a carbon filter. All right so now we can head downstairs into the garage to check out those other Gorilla Glue plants.


 Here we are down in the garage with those other gorilla glue out of flowers, and I can definitely see a large difference with these two plants right here in terms of the bud development. You can see this is the one that is about a week older than the rest and these buds have definitely gotten larger and a little further along in terms of development. And then the one little guy in the back here seems kind of results in terms of that and turns a pistol growth. And it just seems like it is a little further along right now than it was yesterday.  Or growing a little faster and developing a little faster.  Now the two big ones that haven't started flowering yet, it seems like they are definitely starting to sprout some pistols at this point so I think that helped get them going. 

This guy a little further along as its sprouted a good amount of pistols already just from yesterday. It didn't have any at that point. But this one though you can see it is looking like it is just starting that process but another thing that I think is helping with the development or getting these two to start flowering is I turned the dial on the light or on the bloom Beast light up about 10%. So I think that's helping a good amount. And then of course I think the defoliation did some of that as well.  So I will be periodically updating you guys on the plants down here, the four other Gorilla Glue Autos, but mainly it's going to be the two upstairs in the stealth room, but as we go along and as these buds do start to develop I will let you guys see and give you guys an update on how they are doing. Alright, So that concludes today's update and I will be back here in 24 hours for tomorrow's clip.


It is now day 4 of the week and actually bud growth is really starting to take off on both of these Gorilla Glue plants.  So you will see you there just about ready for their next watering, not quite yet so I am going to wait until tomorrow they are most likely going to be ready by then. But I just wanted to show you guys up close here how large is buds are starting to get here or at least the pistols. They are really thickening up and there is a lot growing at all of the bud sites all the way down here. So nothing looking like it is going to develop into popcorn bud. It looks like it's all going to be solid nug on both of these plants. 


So I would say now that we are two days out here from that last two foliation, I would say it's looking really good. And the results are definitely showing. So no watering to do today or nothing else really, I've got both switches on for the light, both for the vegetation and the flower switch. Remember we've got that pad or the vent where the CO2 comes out of pointing towards the plants and just about same height as the plants, and that is pretty much it at this point. Keeping temperature right around 73 degrees Fahrenheit and right now my humidity is a little low as I want it to still be around 55%. 

And it's at 46% right now so may have to bring a humidifier in here but just wanted to see how things go. Because that has just been the last day and a half  here that it has lowered. So that is it for today's update, just one more little close up and you will see there are several Little Tops all developing really well.   So very stoked on that, going to get a nice little yield from both of these and then of course I am actually going to give you guys a nice look at those plants downstairs so you can see how those are doing too. So let's go check this out.

Alright so here are the four other gorilla glues that are growing out here in the garage. And it seems like that low stress or I'm sorry that defoliation I did the other day has helped the two that weren't flowering. Because you can see now they have started developing pistols at all of their Bud sites. so sometimes that is a thing you have to add a little stress on the plants or the auto flowers that are not starting to flower. And if that doesn't work, there are sometimes autoflowers that actually aren't really autoflowers and they actually have to be switched or flipped to a 12 12 light cycle.  And the seeds you got may have been Autoflowers, but for whatever reason every once in awhile the seed does not want to flower until you switch it to that 12 12 cycle. So that is not happening or does not appear to be happening here with these two plans as they are now both growing pistols at all of their bud sites.


 So it looks like that defoliation helped which is also something that does work every once in awhile if they aren't taking off in terms of flower right away. So that is pretty much it, I turned on the bloom switch for the Mars reflector, and then for the bloom Beast I also turned on that dial now so I've got seedling at 100%, veg is at about 50, and then Bloom is at about 20%. So I've got these two points focused under the bloom beast. And then these two guys are pretty much focused under the Mars Hydro. This one has a little bit of the bloom beast, but pretty much on the Mars side. This is the one that is the furthest ahead in terms of flower and that is also the one that is about a week ahead of everybody else, and I would say this guy is doing the second best, this one is going to have just one giant Cola with a  couple little small side coolers. 


And then this one back here is turned out to be a monster say this one will probably be the biggest yielder out of all of them. This guy has a good chance to be the second maybe 3rd test when compared to this one. But we will see and we will keep an eye out on these guys as I say we will be giving these guys weekly updates on this 10th. So that it is it for day 4 of the week, and I will be back here in 24 hours for day 5. Alright peace Growers!

 So it is now day 5 of the week and the buds are really looking good and getting some good development out of them everyday. Are there you guys can see I am curing about 2 lb of weed right there in the background of my face shot you can see I've got the Limoncello Haze, Grape Apes, and a few other over there at the moment but anyways back to the video. So buds are really starting to fill out nicely all the way up and down the trunks as you can see. I've got some nice development on all of the different Tops on both plants, and at this point it looks like they are just going to fatten up and connect all the way up and down as they finish up the flowering stage here. So I just checked the soil and it is dry over an inch deep. 

So they are ready for their next watering which is going to be another plane pH watering and that is their second since the last nutrient feeding. And not yet but probably in the next few days here I'm going to be lowering this light a few inches so just get ready for that. Not just time for it but probably later this week, beginning of next week it will be time. So I will be mentioning that when I do lower it, and let me just give you guys a nice close-up on this little side cooler right here. You can see we've got some nice good development with the pistols and yeah that is pretty much it for today's update. I will be back here for days 6 and 24 hours, so until then Happy growing!


We are now back here for day 6 of the week and this will be a quick update as there isn't too much change, I mean of course the buds are growing a lot each day here. You can see right here this morning is filling out really nicely and I have actually noticed there is definitely a big difference between the one in the back here compared to the one in the front I would say these buds are growing a lot faster. This guy might be just a little bit behind so we will see how they finish up but so far it does seem like this closer plant does have the much larger buds. But still pretty early on in flower. 

And they are not really ready for the next watering yet, they're still good from yesterday's. And yeah let me give you guys some close-ups on the pistols from the further plant, that is a little smaller. You can see they are still doing good and that defoliation is still holding up so there isn't really anything to trim away at this point. Further on in flower they will probably have more leaves that we will trim away but it is not just ready yet. So that is it for today's update and I will be back in 24 hours.

Alright Growers we are back here for day 7 of week for, and the buds are looking absolutely amazing getting much bigger as each day goes by. And the smell is getting stronger by the day as well. So I actually added a second light today because I wanted to widen the footprint, there was actually some edges and branches on these clients that weren't getting enough light, they were kind of being a little bit Shadow just because there was only one light in here. So what I did was I added this 300-watt Mars Hydro right here. Spread them out so they are both kind of spread out evenly over both plants, and now they are getting plenty of light all the way to each top. 


So we are going to start seeing a lot of good bud growth going on from that on this plant here. This guy is kind of lacking a little bit at the moment, so that is another reason why I wanted to add that second light in here. Now the plants were ready for their next watering today so I gave them their third plane pH watering. And a split about almost half a gallon between the two of them. Maybe a little bit more but they are definitely starting to need more water each time we go. So definitely increase that as you go along with your grow because the plants will need more water as they get larger. Alright growers so that concludes day 7 of week 4.


Alright GreenBox Growers, so there you have week 4 of that stealth grow series with the Gorilla Glue Autoflower plants.  And we are definitely now in the thick of the flowering phase as those buds are taking off and should be growing even faster now that we have that second 300 watt light in there. So now we have both the 600 W Meihzi LED, and now we've also got the 300 watt Mars Hydro for a total of 900 watts of LED lights. So should get some really good buds out of that grow room now especially with that added wattage, and as always before I go. I want to thank you guys for watching today's the video, I really hope you enjoyed it, and until next time…

Happy Growing!!!

NukeHeads Series Update:  Almost Time for Harvest!

NukeHeads Series Update: Almost Time for Harvest!

Week 5 of Flower (Week 12 Overall)


What up GreenBox Growers and welcome back for week 12 of NukeHeads grow series!  Again this is week 5 of flower, so we are just starting off kind of the late stages of the flowering phase. And you will see in this week's video the buds are filling out really nicely, they're fattening up a whole lot.  And you will see they are going to start finishing up their development pretty quickly here, so I'm thinking maybe another 2 or 3 weeks Max of growth and then we will start that flushing phase.

 So as always if you are looking for a little additional help to go along with these step by step videos, I do offer personal grow guidance where I myself teach you over the phone each day how to grow cannabis. So I can help you out with any issues or problems you may be running into and you can check out more details on that at this leak right here on the screen. All right so now that you guys know what we are doing this week's video, let's get started with day one of the week!

 So we are out here in the garage for day 1 of the week for the NukeHeads  grow series, and you can see especially these main Grape Ape buds in the back here, they are really filling out nicely here all the way up and down. That is going to be a mighty fine Cola right there, still has a lot of growth still to go but already is looking top-notch! So very frosty and big and the smell and odor is extremely powerful. Same with this Cola right here, you can see it's already got some hair's turning orange so it is developing a little faster than the rest. But you can't see that is also happening in the front plant of the same string right here.

 And these are both the pineapple chunks from NukeHeads. So very stoked on that growth and you can see this grape ape plant here in the front is doing really well In terms of Bloom growth very Frost, even frostier than the one in the back.  But you can see the buds have quite a different shape to them, so this one back here was big and hairy wear this one was sort of smaller and a little bit more bulbous on top. Which is normal as you know every strain isn't going to be of the same phenotype. They are going to be the same strain of course, and that is normal because you can get the same strain or multiple seeds of the same strain but some of those seeds might be a different genotype or phenotype from each other so that is why you get the different characteristics showing in the plants.

 So check in over here again, the middle is the Grape Ape and then on the right is the Skittles, and those are doing really well also. Still thickening up really nicely all the way up and down and even in the back plant right here. So I definitely did a lot of the foliation to open up space for that guy. So doing much better now, all of the bud growth is doing really well and I would say probably two more weeks of development, maybe a little bit more and then we will be starting that flush. So getting pretty close to harvest here and you can see buds are developing pretty far down the branches.  

Now soil is pretty dry today, it's been pretty hot here in Northern California so they are drying out a lot faster than usual. So we will be giving them their third plane pH watering today, and that will really be it for today's update. I'm going to give them that watering now and then I will be back in 24 hours for day 2 of the week. All right peace Growers!

What up Growers we are now back here for day 2 of the week and the buds are smelling and looking amazing as always! Now all of the plants are ready for their next watering so what that will be is there first flush of the grow. So I'm going to be doing a sledgehammer flush for the girls that are in the fox farm nutrient line up and then for the ones and NukeHeads I will also use that Sledgehammer flush as well just because it is a good flushing agent. And I didn't get one with the NukeHeads mix. So that will be good because you want to break up the nutrient  schedule throughout the grow, just  so you don't get a big buildup of salts and minerals up in the soil and your plants.

 So I will be giving them that mix and you can see it is kind of sideways in between  weeks 7 and 8, and it says you know just two teaspoons per gallon of water of this Sledgehammer mix. Now I was also recommended to do one between the flowering phase and the end of the vegetation phase, but I did not just because it was not necessary at that time. so I will be doing that watering today and then also I did some defoliation on all of the plants as you can see, just removing as much of those big fan leaves as I could. 

So you'll see a good amount of them are gone and that will just help again with some more bud growth. So up top again with got that Big Main and Grape Ape Cola that is doing extremely well, along with her side colas. And again all the other plants are looking beautiful as always also. And that is pretty much it for today's update, and you can see another thing, buds are starting to mature further and you can tell by the way some of the hairs are starting to Orange on the buds as they get bigger. So as they get older,  the hairs will start to Orange and curl in and that is just a sign of maturity at this point. So definitely getting closer to that Harvest and flushing face, and probably still another couple of weeks before we flush. But coming along nicely here. So again that is it for today's update and again I will be back in 24 hours for your next update of the week, all right piece guys!

What up Growers, we are back here for day 3 and another 24 hours later, and all of the buds are now starting to kind of finish up that development. They are not really focusing on pistol growth better now just kind of fattening up all the way up and down those branches. So you can see how nice these nugs are getting, super Frosty and let's see if I can get a good focus on here. Because the great apes are definitely starting to exhibit some of that purple and their buds. Which they are pretty much known for, let's see, you can tell how bulbousy to see this one is getting, it's nice and big with some purple on top if you guys can see right there, you can definitely see those trichomes.

But anyways all of these buds fattening up really nicely, you can see the two main colas in the back or absolutely massive, and the Grape Ape here. This is some really top-notch top-shelf looking bud just getting super Frosty and super dance. And you can see especially on this main big Cola back here. Probably going to be checking on the tri comes in the next week here sent they are getting a little closer to finishing up. Probably will not be flushing these though it for another 2 weeks maybe a week and a half, so maybe sooner than later. 

But that is pretty much it for today's update, they were ready for a watering today. So I did give them their first plane pH watering and each plant took about a gallon of water maybe a little bit more at this point. So it has been pretty warm here lately in Northern California so that is why I have been watering more frequently. And that is pretty much normal as they start to drink more and dry up faster when it is hot out. So that is really up for today's update, you can tell right there some really nice and full buds that are growing in here and I will be back here in 24 hours for your next update of the week. All right peace guys!

What up Growers, we are back here another 24 hours later for the very next day of the week and the buds are really starting to finish up nicely here. So I still have a few weeks to go as I keep mentioning but the buds are definitely starting to make sure and you can see how fat they have gotten. I actually checked on the trichomes earlier today and they are all pretty much cloudy at this point. Some are still a little clear, but no Amber just yet. That will start happening over the next couple of weeks here. But super stoked to be harvesting these guys pretty quickly here. And as you can see all of them are looking really nice and frosty, very healthy. There's no Burns or stress or anything like that going on.

 And it is going to be a pretty nice yield and here. Very excited especially to test out these grape apes here as they are starting to get a nice little purple color going to them. So let me show you guys how Frosty they are up close here and you can see how nice that bud is looking, and it is really Frosty. I mean all the way down, now the same goes with the Grape Ape here in the very back. This is definitely the Star plant from the scrub, although the rest are looking really good also. 

Even the little guy down there, so not going to be watering today as they are not ready just yet but that is pretty much it, no need to be checking the trichomes really at the stage. You can start if you want to, but still going to be really another couple of weeks before it gets to that point where you want to start making sure it is not too late or too soon. So I will be covering that more in the upcoming weeks of video, and that is pretty much it for today's update. So I will be back here in 24 hours for the next day of the week, all right piece guys!

What up Growers we are back here another 24 hours later for day 5 of the week, and all six of the plants are actually ready for their next watering. So that is going to be there second plane pH watering since the last nutrients feeding. So let me just give you guys some close-ups on the buds here, I will be doing that water right after the shot. And they are actually finishing up pretty quickly here. So I'm going to be doing at the very start of next week, a trichome look just to see if they are ready to start that flush. As they might be ready coming the beginning of this next week.

 So you can see the buds are finishing up really well, they are getting bigger by the day and really dance which is nice.  Again the grape apes are turning really purple on the buds, And then the other for plants over here which I've got my Pineapple Chunk, they are getting really orangie hairs on them. Really Frosty as well, and then over here with the Skittles, same thing really Frosty and nice orangie hairs. So really excited on how these guys are turning out and now they're just going to be densening up for the rest of their flower growth, and yeah that is pretty much it for today's update. I'm going to give them that watering now of plane pH water and then I will be back in 24 hours for the next day of the week. All right peace guys!

 What up folks, we are back here for day 6 of the week and before I get in too close I just want to show you guys how noticeably large these buds are getting, even from this distance of about three and a half feet away from the entry of the tent. So you can see  nugs filling up from top to bottom, nice and thick and dense, and then when we get up close so you can see how Frosty and obviously you guys can't tell from the video but I can tell how strong and pungent the smell is getting. So all of these buds really finishing up nicely here, still got some time to go and as you guys can see, getting really Frosty and some of them getting really orangie hairs already.

Not really happening with the Grape Ape, so that's more like I was saying with the pineapple chunk and Skittles, but the Grape Ape still looking really nice. And it still looks like it has a little ways to go in terms of Bud development, so I am thinking the plants on the outsides here they are probably going to be harvested a little earlier than the Grape Ape just because these are taking a little longer to finish up. But that's okay that does happen with different strains so nothing to worry about there. And no need for watering, they're still good for that today, so that is pretty much it for today's update. And I will be back here in 24 hours per day 7 of the week. alright peace guys!

All right GreenBox Growers, we are back here for the last day of week 12 which is also week 5 of flower for this overall groceries here. Buds are looking really good and most of them, actually all of them the pistols have started to curl in and they are starting to turn orange like on the outside plants here and even a few of them are starting to Orange on the great apes. So like I was saying, or early next week we will start looking at this trichomes under the microscope so we can see how far along they are from being ready for flush. I'm thinking probably after next week they will be ready for flushing, but yeah getting really dense and really Frosty with those buds all the way around.

 It's going to be a nice yield in here as I keep saying, and then again all of these plants are ready for their next watering today. So that's going to be their  third plain pH watering since their last nutrient feeding. So just a nice look at the buds here, you can see getting really Frosty almost looks like their sugar covering them. And they are getting dents as well all the way up and down. This Grape Ape plant here isn't the most dense, but the one in the back it definitely is. So really stoked on how these buds are turning out, I can't wait till Harvest then coming up here. So that is it for today's update, all right peace guys!

All right growers so there you have week 12 of NukeHeads grow series and again that is week five of flowers so next week will be week 6 of flower. And we are getting close to being ready to flush, and again I will be checking on those try comes with a microscope starting next week, early next week most likely. To see where those trichomes are developed and if they are almost at that point where they would be ready for flush.  So really stoked on how these buds are developing, they are getting really dense and are starting to fatten up all the way down the branches so there are going to be some nice yields in this tent. Especially with those Grape Ape plants. Now like I was saying I will be back here shortly with week 6 of flower for this grow series and that pretty much sums up this entire week's video. So is always I hope you guys enjoyed the video, thank you guys for watching, until next time…

Happy Growing!

NukeHeads Update: Week 4 of Flower

NukeHeads Update: Week 4 of Flower

Significant Bud Growth has Started!


 
 

What up GreenBox Growers and welcome back to the most lit cannabis growing Channel! Now today kicks off week 11 of that NukeHeads grow series. And this is officially the 4th week of flower so we are right in the heart of the flowering phase, and these buds are just developing tremendously well thus far and I am really excited because they are just going to continue doing so with these Electric Sky LEDs. So I am just going to continue giving you guys the watering schedule throughout the week and showing you guys the updates on the buds and updates on their buds and the development as well as how to take care of them and make sure they have optimal growth

. So now that you guys know what we are doing in this week's video I just want to give you a quick reminder about our one-on-one grow guidance. And that is a perfect solution for you if you are looking for a little extra help to go along with these grow videos. Again this service offers you one-on-one help for myself personally over the phone each day. And gets you unlimited access to my help, so now that we got that out of the way let's get started with a day one of the week for this week 4 of flower!

Here we are back out in the garage for day 1 of the week and man the smell is absolutely billowing out of the tent now that I just turned off that carbon filter for the shoot. So you guys can see the buds are not only getting really big. But they are filling out up and down those main branches for a good distance. So that is going to be nice because not only will those buds be nice and fat up top, but they are going to connect and fill out going a good length of the branch. So that is what we want and really in part due to the great penetration of light that I'm getting with these electric Skies by the green Sunshine Company. 

So let me just give you guys, there's no water needed today for the plants, so I'm just going to be giving you guys so much close-ups on these beautiful buds and some things I would like to point out. First of all no Burns or any issues with the leaves. Perfect leaves, perfectly healthy leaves that is and no deficiencies or toxicities like I'm saying you can see they are nice and in that healthy green color. Now same thing with the pistols here, let me give you guys some close-ups. Now you can stress out the pistils growing on the buds so it is important to be very careful because if the lights get too close or it gets too hot, you will see they will start curling and Browning or burning up. 

And you know at the end they are going to turn a different color and curl in, but if it starts happening this early on in flower than is not because of maturity of the buds. It is because you are stressing them out. But as you can see what these guys is just a couple inches from  those lights. They are an Optimal Health and shape, even the guy that grew into the light is standing perfectly up. Even those pistols grew back up once I raise the light a little higher. So that is really it for today's update on the buds, you can see not only are they everywhere but they are filling out beautifully. Couldn't be more stoked coming again hopefully I will be pulling a little over a pound from these six plants total. So that is it for today's update and I will be back for a date you in 24 hours. Alright peace guys!!

What up GreenBox Growers, we are back here another 24 hours later for day 2 of the week and you can see the buds are continuing to mature really well, fattening up in all areas. And now really starting to grow down towards each other to connect at those different Bud sites. So this guy is stretching up again towards that light so I may have to raise the light a little further, we will see. We don't want it to get too close and touch it again, but right now they're still probably about I would say to half an inch and distance between the top of the buds pistols and that light. 

So you can see all of the side colas on all of the branches or all of the plants are filling out just as well as the main colors are. And let me just give you guys some nice looks at those buds up close. You can see how nice and happy the pistols are looking, they're just getting bigger and bigger each day. So today the plants were ready for their watering, I already did it but it was that third nutrient feeding of the flowering phase.  So here on the dirty dozen schedule you will see I did week 7 which is the third week of flower mix. And I just followed that at full strength and then added one teaspoon of Cal Mag here per gallon of water.

 So I gave each plant a little over a gallon again, and Also that fox farm mix so that was for the front row because of those are the fox farm plants. And then in the back row, what I did was the plutonium Bloom mix which you can see right here. And that was about a scoop and a half per gallon and then I also did one teaspoon of Cal Mag per gallon of water with that. So same thing plants got a little over a gallon per plant back there of that mix. As those are the NukeHeads plants back there.

And then again in the front or the Fox Farms. So again you can see there is definitely some significant differences between the plants right now, especially compared to when you are comparing the two Grape Apes. so the Grape Ape in the front her buds are a little smaller which is the fox farm plant. When compared to the one in the back so right now I would definitely say NukeHeads are winning in terms of size of the bud grow that they are giving these plants.

But one thing to also consider is the nutrients and what sources were used to make them. So one plus about foxfarm is that they are all natural and organic materials that they used to make their nutrients. Now with the NukeHeads it doesn't say what ingredients are in there or where they get their ingredients so it is hard to tell if it is all organic or all-natural or if what they're putting in there is good to be adding to these plants. Now it is working in terms of getting some big bud growth growth,  but again always want to be safe and use healthy non toxic ingredients and additives for your plants. So that is it for today's update and again did that week 3 of flower nutrient feeding today and I will be back here in 24 hours for your next update. And again that will be day 3 of the week. All right peace guys!

Alright Growers we are back here for day 3 of the week and you can see all of these main branches and colas, that you can see they are forming nicely  all the way up and down and you can see how they are starting to connect. Especially with these big guys in the back, and I mean all of these branches are developing really nicely, so very stoked on that. Let me give you guys some good close-ups so you can see how they are looking. Plants aren't ready for a watering today I just wanted them yesterday anyway so that would make sense. And then I actually did a little defoliate today on the plants so I probably took a handful of leaves from each plant just to trim up some leaves that were laying on top of Bud sites or were covering up some light to those Bud sites.

So anyways, just remember that is always an ongoing thing from here on out just a little bit at a time. And you will see eventually towards the end of flower there will probably be no fan leaves left  or if so just a very few bit we left mainly just going to be sugar leaves that you will see poking out of those buds. So really going to get those buds to thicken up and fatten up really nicely doing that, just to help really increase those yields. So you can see looking really good, these big buds up top here and really all of those side colas that they have going are just looking fabulous as well.

 So just let me give you guys some more close-ups but yeah that is really it, just maintaining a good temperature and humidity level in here. It's been around 74 to 75° during the day, and then at night I'm trying to keep it around 68 to 69 degrees Fahrenheit. Humidity has been right around 55% which is ideal, and you can go a little above or below that but really for flower you want to keep it around 55 just because added moisture will cause those buds  to possibly get mold growing on them. And then too dry will cause them to not really fatten up very well. So that is pretty much it for today's update, and I will be back here in 24 hours for the next day of the week.

What up Growers, we are back here for a day for the week and just continuing to get fat dense Bud growth every day. So you can see everyone is really starting to fatten up now it's not just those main colors. And you can see they are just connecting really nicely all the way from the tops down. So you can see the outline of the bud shape there, it's not finished or even really close. We've got a long ways to go in terms of development but you can kind of start to get the idea of how these buds are going to shape up and now they are really going to start fattening up with trichomes and Bud Over the next couple of weeks here.

 So this right here is the front Skittles plant getting the Fox Farm nutrients, and then in the back here is that Skittles NukeHeads plant, which although it did get kind of covered up by some of the plants so it stayed short. You can see the bud growth is going really well and that guy should give us a couple ounces at least. So pumped about that, you can see the two big main colas in the back are doing really well. Still not growing into the light since I raised it a couple days ago, and this guy has definitely stop growing in terms of vegetative growth and height. Another thing I wanted to show you guys as the trichomes, they're starting to develop on the fan leaves as well as will become the sugar leaves.

 So you can see, let me see if I can get a good shot, you can see how it looks almost Frosty on the leaves, and that is just trichomes, pure trichomes Growing on them.  And  so that is just a good sign of healthy and happy buds and a sign of what is to come, so hopefully they fill out the buds that far onto the leaves. Which would give us some massive dank buds. So here is some more good shots of the developing colas, as well as the trichomes and the frost that is just developing nicely on the leaves. 

And one thing that is really cool with really good sugar leaves which it looks like we will be getting a lot of good trim from these buds.  As like I just showed you, the trichomes are already filling out on to those fan leaves. But, what is great about that is you can use them and process them after the whole harvesting and trimming., and you can extract them or even just process them into butter and other extracts for dabs, oils, concentrates, really whatever, Edibles. So yeah, really good to keep your sugar leaves, I cover this in the trimming and harvesting videos of course. But just wanted to bring that up since it looks like we are going to get some really nice Sugar Leaf and trim from this grow.

 So no need to water the ladies today as you can see  soil is still visibly wet and moist, and let me give you guys a little bit of A zoomed-out shot just so you can see, I mean you can really tell those buds are taking over and it really doesn't look like foliage anymore just solid nugs. So that's just wanted to keep fattening up, and again still taking leaves here and there just one by one. So we are  still here on the same day and I'd actually just finished up some defoliation on the plants. So I wanted to give you guys a look because  I pulled some of the plants or one of the plants out of the tent, and I just wanted to see or show you guys how big these buds really are getting. So it is easier to see now that it is out of the tent, you can just see that they are really going to start thickening up nicely there.

 So let me also show you guys inside the tent since this face here is open, give you guys a little bit of a better look at the back plants here. This is that Skittles here in the back that kind of got towered over by the other Grape Ape. And while the main tops that are really exposed to the light or doing really well, you can see it is pretty underdeveloped on those other tops which is pretty normal just when you know that it is not getting enough light. So just did a lot of training or sorry a lot of defoliation.  So that should help a lot with that and then of course we've got the big Grape Ape in the back and let me give you guys some good shots and how big and frosty does buds are getting all ready since we are back here.

There's the side colas and then there's that big main guy getting nice and thick. And hopefully it's going to start connecting, it looks like pretty quickly here from top to bottom. You can see the first couple inches already did that so just working our way down. So yeah I just wanted to give you guys that quick look inside the tent just so you can have a different view of how things are going in there, and then also since I pulled this plant out just wanted to show you guys what that look like. All right I will be back now in 24 hours for the next day of the week. Alright Peace guys!

 We are back here 24 hours later for day 5 of the week and just continuing with some really nice Bud growth on all six of the NukeHeads plants here. Seeing really good development out of both the fox farm line up here in the front as well as the NukeHeads in the back there. But I got to say the NukeHeads is definitely winning this one so far. Both with the vegetative growth and the bud growth, and you can see just how big these guys are in the back especially when compared to their counterparts in the front.

 Still getting really good yields and results from the fox farm lineup you can see the buds are fattening up all over the place and looking really nice. The smell is tremendous as well like I said, the second I turn off that carbon filter it is just billowing out of the tent.  Again the front row is the fox farm plants and the back row is the NukeHeads lineup. Now again the only Strife I have with the NukeHeads lineup is it is not really natural sources of ingredients for the nutrients. First of all they don't really tell you what is in them, but my guess is it is not a natural source as it is a blue Powder that you are using. 

So that is the only drawback when compared to the fox farm, and again we still have you know four to five more weeks to go here for flowering. So we will see how they all turn out and we will give another comparison at the end there. So the plants were ready for their next watering today and that was their first plane pH watering since last nutrient feeding. They all got about a gallon and a half each per plant. And that is really it for today's update, still doing a little bit of defoliation each day here and there. And that is really it, so I will be back here in 24 hours for the next day of the week. All right peace guys!

It is now day 6 here in the grow room and I would say we are definitely past the early flowering phase and are now on to the mid-to-late part of the bloom phase. As you can see the buds have pretty much formed at all of the tops, will they have formed and now what they are doing is just fattening up and finishing their Bud production. So you will see the length of the colas has pretty much been to find at this point and now they are just going to continue fattening up and connecting to each other. So not too much to be doing with the plants other than monitoring temperature and humidity and making sure that that is always constant and on point. And let me give you guys some good shots and close ups on these buds.

 Now they are getting extremely Frosty you can see up close here on the leaves and even on the fan leaves, not just the sugar leaves. They are getting covered with trichomes just being close to those buds. And you can see him in just an all of them they are really starting to fatten up and connect all the way up and down there, and you can see like with this big guy right here. And all of its side colas are doing really well, and then of course with the Pineapple Chunk in the back left here, that is doing amazingly. So that's just one massive Cola right there, and it's just going to continue to fatten and thick in all the way up and down that branch.

You can see these guys are doing really well, and another thing when she obviously can't tell him the video, but the smell is so sweet right now and very potent. And like I said, the second I turn that carbon filter off it is just extremely potent and strong smelling in here. So just let me try and get this camera to focus on that nug right there. Not sure why it is giving me a hassle, let's see we can do it. 

There is a pretty good shot, you can see the trichomes developing there on the leaves coming all the way out to the tips of those leaves which is really nice. And you can see that growth is going all the way up and down the plants. So just am really nice overviews of these nugs and koalas as they fill out and you can really get a good sense of how big they are when I step back a little bit.  And just give you guys this kind of view right here. That is pretty much it again day 6 of the week, and I will be back here in another 24 hours for the last day of the week.  Alright peace guys!

 Alright Growers, we are back here for the last day of the week and these ladies were actually ready for a water and today which I already gave them. But that was their second plane pH watering since the last nutrient feeding, and it has been really hot lately so they were a little extra thirsty so I gave them about a gallon and a half per plant maybe a little bit less. But it's pretty close to that, now let me to show you guys the development of the buds as it is really changing honestly from a day-to-day basis. There is a tremendous difference I have to say and these guys from day to day. So let me get this camera to zoom or Focus I mean, sorry. So there we go, let's just get up on that bud because she is beautiful.

 Look at that, so as you can see they're getting really Frosty all the way up and down and it is just filling out tremendously from the top of that main Cola all the way down. So there is a better zoomed out look for you guys, and you can see this is just one main Cola out of a few dozen and here probably, probably like 30 to be honest. So you can see everything is doing really well we got some that are leaning a little bit just as they are getting heavier, so I may have to support them with some string but that is nothing to worry about.  

They were leaning a little extra today and still kind of our because they are a little under watered. Like I said they dried out pretty quickly here because of the hot weather so they should be standing fully backup and probably a couple hours time.  But you can see the upper parts here, really filling out nicely, these Main cola's and the trichomes are just filling up all over those sugar leaves and even reaching out onto some of those bigger fan leaves. So that is really it for today's update on the buds and again this is day 7 of week 11. So I hope you enjoy this look and update on the buds. Alright peace guys!

Alright growers, that concludes Week 11 of the NukeHeads grow series. Definitely seeing some good differences between that foxfarm dirty dozen nutrient line up when compared to the flower power package by NukeHeads.  And while there are some differences I would say that both nutrient lineups are growing the plants very well, and developing some really top-notch buds. So that is it for this week's video and I will be back shortly with week 12 of the NukeHeads Grow series. And as always thank you guys for watching two days of video, I hope you enjoyed, and until next time…
 

Happy Growing!!!

Week 2 of Flower for the NukeHeads Grow Series (Week 9 Overall)

Bud Development starting to Take OFF!


 
 

 What up GreenBox Growers and welcome back for the most lit cannabis growing Channel! Now today kicks off Week 9 of that NukeHeads grow series which is also the second week of flower, so I am very excited for that Because I am definitely getting some good development going on at those Bud sites. So you will see that in this week's videos we are starting to get those white pistils going and hopefully by the end of the week we will have a nice little bud growing right at the tippy-top of all of those plants. 

Now if you have been following along with these videos and you feel you still need a little more help, you can sign up via this link for one-on-one help with myself where I will help you personally over the phone each day, teaching you what to do and kind of helping you through those problems and issues that you are having with your cannabis plants. I can also show you some different tips and tricks that will help increase the quality of yields that you get from them. Also don't forget to check out our merch and clothing at the GreenBox Grown website under merch and smoke of course and now that you guys know what we are doing in today's video let's get started with day 1 of the week!

Alright so here we are out in the garage for day 1 of week 9 which is also day one for week 2 of flower. And you can see the plants are still blowing up in terms of vegetative growth you can see how thick the canopy has gotten already since I trimmed it up last. Which I believe was the second or third time, and I am still removing little leaves or big leaves actually, big fan leaves  here and there, just throughout the day and the week. Just a little bit at a time. So you can see these two back plants are blowing up in height and also In Bloom growth or flower growth.

So you can see all of the plants actually are starting to sprout a good amount of pistols at the very top of the plants. And starting to get a lot of good smells going on in here as well which is great. But probably by the end of this week we will have some decent bloom or flower growth going on, it's just going to take a little more about transitional phase to get them going. But again still growing and terms of vegetative growth and looking really healthy. All of the plants of course are great and even the one Skittles plant in the back right here that is getting towered over by the rest of them.

 So a quick look below the canopy, you can see everything is holding up really well in terms of the lollipopping and trimming, and the  branches are looking really healthy, you can see how big the trunks are getting along with those roots, they are just absolutely massive. So really stoked on that, they are not ready yet for a watering either so we will hold off on that as well. But definitely seeing some good Bloom growth going at the very top of the nodes here. So very stoked on that, and again all of these are showing only female parts, no male Parts going on so that is a good sign as well. That is really it for today's update and I will be back in another 24 hours for day 2 of the week but until then, Happy growing!

24-hours what's good Growers, we are back here another 24 hours later for day 2 of week 9. And ladies were actually ready for a watering today so I gave them their first plane pH watering since that last nutrient feeding. So each plant took about a gallon and a half at this point, some a little less than others but yeah just about a gallon and a half. So now what I am really excited to show you guys about, we are definitely in that flowering stage at this point. No more longer in the transitional phase. And let me show you what that looks like. So you will see up at the bud sites here, you will see there is a lot of pistils growing and forming right at the bud sites. And they are starting to form all the way down those branches, so you can see all those nice white pistils all the way up and down.

 And there is even starting to be a little stronger of a scent going on now that those are starting to come in more frequently throughout the different tops. So you can see there is Big Mama, that big Grape Ape in the back middle and you can see her pistols are coming in thicker already just because she is the closest to the light so she is going to have the fastest growth. So very excited about that, that flowering growth is coming and really nicely throughout the whole tent and you can see all of the leaves on the plants, you can see there is no nitrogen toxicity no nutrient deficiencies Burns and no damage to leaves whatsoever. 

You can see nothing on the tips were edges or anything, they are just all the hundred percent healthy so that is great  especially because we are in flower. That just means the quality of the bud is going to be that much higher and the yields are going to be that much bigger. So that is pretty much it for today's update, I will be doing some to foliation today. So I mentioned I'll be doing a little bit here and there throughout the flowering. And you can see look how thick the canopy is gone at this point. So what I will be removing at this point the leaves kind of like the leaves that are laying on top of the other ones, or just really big fan leaves like that one right there That are blocking a lot of light to the lower canopy.

 So again leaves that are laying on top of each other, you can remove those, and again only fan leaves, none of the bud sites or anything like that especially since we are now in flower. So we are removing those big fan leaves and again the ones that are laying on top of each other and then that will be it. So that is it again for today's update, and I will be back in another 24 hours for day 3 of the week. All right peace guys!

What's good Growers, we are back again and it is now day 3 of the week in flower is really starting to take off on these plants so you can see lots of pistols  even more than before are forming at the tops of the plants and you can see not only has that vegetative growth continue to grow crazy but they are really starting to Bud well at those various tops. So let me give you a quick close up on the big Grape Ape Bud that is already starting to form up here in the back. You can see it right here in the middle of that top and it's starting to form all the way down that main branch so it's going to be a nice big bud back there on both of those ladies actually.

And you can just see the plant is really now starting to turn off on the vegetative growth and is starting to focus more on that flower growth only. You can tell that by how all of these different tops are kind of nice and skinny and standing up straight up, focusing more on thickening up that Branch so we can hold a bigger bud. So we will still be doing some to foliation throughout the grow here and there but right now is not really necessary as all of the plants are looking really good and trimmed up. And it doesn't seem like there's too much below the canopy that is being blocked out by the Light. So let me give you guys another good close up here on this little bud site.

 It's really starting to form nicely and let's see if I can give you guys an even better close up. So you can see more pistols are forming and they are really thickening up and they are really going all the way down the trunk of the branch, so that means it's going to be a nice and big bud. So that is it for todays update and I will be back here in another 24 hours for day for the week. All right peace guys!

Alright Growers we are back here for day 4 of the week and they are actually ready for their next watering so that is going to be there second plane pH watering sense that last nutrients feeding. And in the meantime let me just give you guys some nice close-ups of those buds and how they are starting to develop. We are getting some really nice pistol development right at the tops there so let me see okay there you go you can see, let's get it to focus. 

You can see how they are starting to form almost like that white fuzz ball looking shape right at the center of the tops and we are getting that really nicely throughout all of those different branches all the way down. So that is really good so far in terms of Bud development and now I am just going to give them their second playing pH watering and that'll really be it for today's update. And I will be back here in another 24 hours for the next day of the week but like I was saying, I'm just going to give them that watering and then that's really it. Alright peace guys!

What up Growers we are now back here for the NukeHeads grow And day five is now upon us. So lots of good development going on at the bud sites, you can really tell a big difference each day now in terms of how many pistols and how big they are really getting so really taking off in terms of that bud growth. And pretty soon here we should start seeing some nice buds forming into those nice Bud like shaped. Now yesterday I did that watering, so the soil is still pretty moist meaning they don't need a watering today, and I also added a fan here on the floor down below the canopy.

The reason being, the canopy above has gotten so big and thick that are float isn't really getting down to this area, so it is a good idea to circulate the area around here because if it does stay stagnant it is going to attract pests as well as mold and possibly other issues like that. So I just have this little fan going lightly, does not blowing too hard and you do not want to be messing with the buds or the leaves up in the canopy. You just want to be circulating that are down around here. 

So I also remove the fan that I had up in here and replaced it with the smaller one right here, that guy still pretty powerful but you can see it is not blocking the light like the fan was over here. So not as much light was getting down to the corner of this plant here so I wanted to fix that and that is why I decided to fix that fan. Not a big deal at all you just want to make sure that the fan isn't blowing too hard on the plants and the way you can tell is by the leaves and how much they are shaking. 

So you can see these guys are lightly, very lightly fluttering and that is what you want especially during flower. You don't want them shaking as much once they start  developing buds, because that can affect the growth. So that is really it for today's update, again just really stoked on this new development at the bud sites so you can see how good they are looking. And really a night and day difference in terms of Bud growth from day to day. Now one last thing I wanted to show you guys before I go is I was telling you guys about how leaves will lay on top of Bud sites and cover them up and how it is a good idea to remove those. 

So you can see this fan leave  right here is covering up my Pineapple Chunk or one of its own tops actually in the back there. And you can see that leave their is laying on a bud site right there right below it,  so you can kind of see it's pistols poking through so what I'm going to do is remove this main leaf that is laying right on top of it and then also this guy right over here on top of it so that we can just completely expose light to it. 

Now there are few other ones going on in here and you'll even see the leaves growing into each other and pushing each other in a different directions, so those are good to remove as well because they are just blocking light and also making it harder for those Bud sites to grow. So I will be removing those leaves as well as others that are covering up bud sites and I recommend you guys do the same as well each day, just kind of checking out for a little bit of those each day, just kind of checking out and looking for a little bit of those here and there and removing as necessary. Now you do not need to do a massive defoliation everyday, I'm just talking about a few leaves here and there as needed. But definitely keep an eye out for that. So I will be back here in 24 hours for day 6 of the week, alright peace guys!

What up Growers, we are back here for days 6 in the plants are looking amazing right now. That bud development like I keep saying is really starting to take off and look at how tall does back to plants are getting. I've got here on the left my Pineapple Chunk and in the back row again is the NukeHeads row, so I've got my NukeHeads Pineapple Chunk, and then the NukeHeads Grape Ape. And I mean, these two plans not only are they the two tallest plants by far but they are also the farthest I would say along in terms of Bud development. 

So you can see how nice those pistols are looking right at the tops of the bug sites, and really honestly look at all of these talks. I mean they're really filling out densely with those pistols so I mean I really think these Electric Sky LEDs are really doing a lot of good for all of the plants in here. Because you can see all of them are equally as far as long, the plants or the tops that are on the way outside kind of not getting the main light, those are a little less further along but that is as expected. 

And again look at how tall and healthy they all are, no deficiencies or Burns or anything on all of the fan leaves so they're all looking really healthy. And I've got again that fan going down here to keep a little extra circulation down here below the canopy because with no air circulation it makes it easier for pests to get in there and land on the plant. So keeping that are circulating will make sure that they are not down there and no pests are going to infiltrate the soil or the lower parts of the plant. And then it's also going to help prevent spores of mold from Landing down there from it getting too humid and causing  that to form. So good little Health tip right there is to keep a little fan blowing down there. 

Nothing too strong because you don't want to be messing up the leaves or anything like that. Now the plants are ready for their next watering so I will be giving them their third plane pH watering since their last nutrients feeding and each plant is probably going to Be getting a gallon two more like a gallon and a half per plant. so I wanted to get a good amount of runoff now that we are in flower, and they seem to really be liking that as I am seeing some really amazing differences in their growth each day. So let's do a quick little update on that nutrient comparison between the dirty dozen buy Fox Farms and Then the flower power package by NukeHeads. so I would definitely say that the back plans which are getting the NukeHeads  nutrients, they are much taller and thicker with vegetative growth.

 So I would say that definitely NukeHeads won in terms of that. Now with the buds I would say all of the plants are pretty much as far along as each other. And one doesn't seem further along than the other in terms of the fox farm Plants verse that back row of NukeHeads. but this is still there really early stages of flower development so I'm going to give them a few more weeks before I really decide. Hopefully we will see a different size between the bud size and density between the two so we can get a good look at some differences. So that is it for today's update and I'm going to give them that plane pH watering now, and then I will be back here in 24 hours for the last day of the week. All right peace guys.

Alright Growers we are back here for the last day of week 9 for this NukeHeads grow series. And the flowering growth is continuing to take off. You can see you can see all the different tops, the main ones at top at least are filling up really really well with a ton of pistols and growth, so this is the last day of the week, week 3 of flower which is next week, they're just going to continue to blow up and probably fill out this whole canopy with Bud growth.

 So you can see the taller ones of course are the furthest along and getting the best development so far as expected. And it also looks like their growth has leveled off in terms of vegetative growth Because it does not seem like they are getting any closer to those electric sky lights. 

So let me just give you guys a couple more nice close-ups here, you can see, let me get it to focus, you can see how nice those pistols are looking. There is no burn and they are just standing straight up and they are nice and white and thick. If at this stage they were already curled over and kind of Browning or turning colors, that means they are burning because they are too close to the light or because it is too hot in the grow room. So very stoked and even the ones that are up close to those lights, you can see they aren’t burned or anything. So these lights are really gentle on them even when they are that close. 

So that is really it for today's update, oh yeah they are also ready for their next watering, so that's going to be there next nutrient feeding so what I will be doing today is feeding them week 6 from the fox farm Dirty Dozen schedule and that is only for the front row of plants of course because those are the ones getting the fox farm lineup. And I will be doing that at full strength with a teaspoon of Cal Mag as well per gallon of water. So the week 6 mix and then for the back row I will be doing the NukeHeads plutonium bloom mix again which is about one and a half Scoops per gallon of water. And then I will also be mixing in that one teaspoon of Cal Mag per gallon for that.

Let's do a comparison really quick on the bud growth thus far for the front and back, to be honest I think they look pretty comparable, the back plants are obviously the tallest, but you can see these front guys that are getting the dirty dozen by foxfarm there getting a lot of good growth at the bud sites as well. So it is hard to say if there's a difference just yet, the back plants are definitely bigger. But Bud growth is pretty much the same all the way across the board, so I will also be doing a little defoliation today. So I will probably be removing 5% of the fan leaves just because they are getting pretty crowded in here at this point in there a lot of leaves laying on top of each other so. I will be back here shortly with the next week's update, but until then Happy growing!

Alright GreenBox Growers, that officially concludes week 9 of this NukeHeads grow series. And again that is also week 2 of flower. now these guys are way further ahead than I ever thought they could be this quickly into the flowering phase, so there's Electric Sky LEDs by the Green Sunshine Company are really blowing up these plants and the doing an amazing job so super stoked on that. And of course I will be back shortly with week 3 of flower for this Grow Series where they are going to take off even further. So get excited for that, and as always thank you guys for watching and until next time…
 

Happy Growing!!!
