Grow Update: Week 5 of Flower for the Basic Grows!

Week 5 of Flower Update for the Indoor & Outdoor Grows!

What is up Cannabis Growers, and welcome back for another episode of GreenBox Grown! Today is the very first day of Week 5 of Flower for my Basic Cannabis Grow, so I am going to give you guys another update!  

Remember there is both an Greenhouse Grow and a Indoor Grow I will be showing you today, and by Basic Grow I mean these plants were only topped once or twice and minimal LST was used. Also, they had a short vegetation period of 4 weeks.

First I will show you guys the Green House plants, which include 1 Chocolate Hashberry, 1 Pre-98 Bubba, and 1 Coco Monkey Balls. As you can see in the video, all 3 plants have several tops, and the 2 larger plants have 10+ colas! Even after a short vegetation period, you can see how far a little bit of LST and Topping can go!

You can also see how large and dense the buds are getting, and when you get up close you can see how frosty they are getting from all of the trichome growth! Unfortunately you guys can't smell from home, but the plants are starting to give off that lovely scent they have and it is getting strong. I would say about 3-4 more weeks and then these buds will be ready to come down for harvest!

So now that you have seen the Greenhouse plants, lets check out the Indoor. There are only 2 plants in the indoor tent but they are growing exceptionally well! In fact, you can see I had to use string to hold the buds up as the branches weren't strong enough to support their weight! Besides that tiny issue, the indoor buds are growing as an extremely rapid rate and also have a wonderful scent to them!

The only issue with the indoor grow, is since the plants don't receive like from all angles, the plants do not grow as many buds on the sides and lower parts of the trunk, like we saw the greenhouse plants doing. However, as a tradeoff the top buds on the indoor plants tend to be extremely potent and flavorful. You can see how developed the indoor buds have become over the last couple of weeks, and it is even noticeable that the white epistles are starting to turn orange and curl in. Another sign your buds are reaching maturity! As with the plants in the greenhouse, I would say 3-4 more weeks before these guys are ready for harvest.

That is all I have for now on my Basic Indoor and Outdoor Cannabis Grows, but I will be back with another update in a few weeks! In that video I will be showing video clips of the trichomes and explaining which stage of growth they are at, and I will cover when to start your flush!  

Until then, Thank You for watching and HAPPY GROWING!

Grow Update: Basic Indoor & Greenhouse Grows

Week 3 of Flower for the Basic Cannabis Grows!

Hello and welcome back to GreenBox Grown, for another update on the Basic Cannabis Grows. We are currently on Week 3 of Flower for this Cannabis Grow Journal there is an outdoor GreenHouse & Indoor Grow Tent that we are going to cover for it. I would also like to mention that when I say "Basic Grow" I mean there was minimal LST used through out the vegetation stage, I only gave the plants 4 weeks for vegetation, and I only topped the plants 2-3 times max.  

The reasoning for all of this is with less LST and Training, there is less shock on the plant. What this means is the plant can grow faster and you can harvest earlier. By minimizing the toppings and only using LST early on in the grow, I am able to grow a very bushy and large plant while preventing most shock. So the harvest time is still really short!

First lets check out the Greenhouse Basic Grow. In there you will see the buds are already showing some significant development while only being in the very beginning of week 3! In this tent there is 1 Coco Monkey Balls, 1 Pre-98 Bubba, and 1 Chocolate Hashberry Plant. The 2 larger plants were in vegetation for a little over 4 weeks, while the Pre-98 Bubba was only in veg for 3 weeks after clone. That is why the Bubba is so much less bushy than the other 2! You can see that even though it is a small plant, the Pre-98 Bubba is already developing 3 massive main colas which will provide a significant harvest! The other 2 plants will yield much more, however that is because they are so much larger and have had a longer time to grow. It is crazy what a difference 1 week can make!

Ok so now that you have seen the Outdoor plants, lets check out the indoor grow. There are 2 plants in here which are both crossed with double tangy, one of my all time favorite strains! These guys had around 5 weeks for vegetation, and are also on the very first day of week 3 Flower. What is really amazing about this grow, is I am only using 1 300W Mars Hydro LED, and yet the plants are still having significant growth and almost fill the entire tent up! Again, this tent falls under the Basic Grow rules, so I only provided a couple of toppings and some LST in the beginning, and that was it.

That is all I have for this update on my Indoor and Outdoor Basic Cannabis Grows, but I will be back with another update in a few weeks once these buds have had a chance to mature significantly! Until then, thank you for watching and Happy Growing!
