WK4 Flower OG Kush

Amazing Bud Development + Lots of Trichomes!


 
 

What’s up GreenBox Growers and welcome back for week 12 overall for the OG Kush Screen of Green Grow Series! Now this is also the beginning of week 4 for flower, so I am thinking this is going to be about a 628 week flowering strain. So we are about halfway or almost at the halfway range for the flowering period. Now every day or every 24 hour period, you can see there is a tremendous amount of change in growth and in terms of Bud development. And that bud sweetener or that grape flavor that we have been adding every watering, I can definitely tell that is helping and adding some nice flavors to the smell of the buds.

 Now this week is going to be another simple one as we are really just wanted to focus on maintaining those ideal conditions in the grow room as well as lowering the lights and doing a little bit of defoliate in here and there. So we are also going to be continuing with the nutrient and watering schedule as well as that bud grape sweetener we were talking about earlier. And finally we are also going to be maintaining that high CO2 level in the grow room with those tnb Naturals CO2 canisters. So CO2 is really important during the flowering phase especially during the early to Middle stages so we want to keep pumping that in there with these canisters. 

So that is why I am refilling them every 2 weeks right on schedule so that way we always have the maximum amount of CO2 we can have in the grow tent. Alright folks so now that you know what we are doing in this week's episode of the OG Kush grow, let's get started with day one of the week!

Here we are for day one of the week, so let's do a quick update and look at how the buds have developed since yesterday's clip. You can see they are getting really Frosty at this point in the buds I really starting to stack up from the top all the way down to the lower parts of the canopy. And again just getting really potent with smell, you can see when we get up close they are getting Frosty on the sugar leaves now let me see if I can give you guys a better look of that here. I will give you another shot of that in a second though so you guys can see but really quickly just wanted to give you guys an overview or an overall look at all of the buds and how they are developing.  So very excited on this development thus far.

So for today it is going to be a simple one, we are going to be doing our small watering, this is just 2 spray bottles worth of water, mixed up with 1.5 teaspoons of the grape sweet by Botanicare. We are going to of course shake up the CO2 canisters which I have already done, and then we are going to be lowering the lights another Eng. So a very routine update today, we will be doing a little bit of deflation as well as there are areas that have gotten a little bit thick with foliage and there is some light being blocked out but not too much.

So we don't have to worry too much about that. All right folks so that pretty much concludes today's update, I'm going to go ahead and do that water now and then lowering of the lights. And then we will see you back here in 24 hours for day 2 of the week!

We are now back here for the second day of the week, and the plants are ready for their next full watering. So right here in this bucket up got two gallons mixed up with a full tablespoon of the grape sweet bad sweetener by Botanicare. So I will be splitting that between all four of the plants here, and besides that we are going to be shaking out the CO2 canisters of course. And I won't be lowering the lights today as we did that yesterday, but tomorrow I will be definitely lowering them another inch. Not really her today I did a good amount of  defoliation on all 4 of the plants and you can see what I took off right here in this trash bag. 

It is about 4 lb or I would say more like 3 lb of trimmings, not too much but really thinned out below the canopy, the lower parts of the plants because there were some nodes and besides that were being covered up and I wanted to make sure that they were getting the maximum amount of light because you do not want those wispy buds to develop. And as you can see here we are still getting good deal bud development down below the second layer of the scrog net. So that is pretty much it for today's update, since we did a good amount of defoliation today, we are going to hold off on that for a few days.

 But like I said tomorrow we will be lowering the lights again because that is just something that we are going to continuously do you until we are right on top of those buds or those main colas. So I'm also going to go ahead and get started with that watering and then I will also be sure to give you guys some closeups on the buds and their new development during that shot.  Alright Growers, I will see you back here in 24 hours for day three of the week, Peace!

OK Growers so we are now back for the third day of the week, and just going to be a pretty simple update today. First off we are going to be lowering the lights one in each, remember we have two of them going at this point so just want to keep them at a consistent height, both of them at the same distance from the plants. 4 the watering we are just going to do one of our small in between waterings. And I've got half a gallon mixed up here which we will be splitting between all four of the plants. And in that half gallon I have mixed up 1.5 teaspoons of the grape sweet by Botanicare.

 Now that is also the equivalent of half a tablespoon if you have one of those. Makes it a little easier, and using this bud sweetener I can tell already it's definitely helping.  Now we are in the fourth week of flower now about three days in here, and I can already smell that grape scent really filling up the tent and really dominating the odors coming from the pistols and development. 

So that is pretty much all we will be doing today, just pretty much lowering the lights and inch each and then of course doing that plane watering mixed with the grape sweetener and just wanted to give you guys a nice look at those buds and that nice shot as well. All right folks so very happy with where we are going so far in terms of Bud development and the lollipopping is holding up really well.


 And that continuous defoliation that we are doing, you can see it as making sure that these plants are not too bushy but instead you can see just the outline of those buds developing and forming each day. Okay so I'm going to go ahead and do that watering and then lowering of the lights and then we will see you back here in 24 hours. Peace!

We are now back for the 4th day of week 12 here which is also week 4 of flower, and Bud development is just continuing to go on very smoothly. And we are seeing still very good progress every 24 hours! At this point, and I will show you guys some close-ups in a little bit once we do our watering. But there is a lot of trichomes building up on the sugar leaves or on the leaves that are now making them sugar leaves. So the buds are definitely getting Frosty now as well as bigger by the day.

 You can really see the outlines of them starting to form and take over shape now as they become bigger and bigger in size. And I mean geez, we've got about 30 + different colas here coming up through the scrog. So there's going to be a very nice yield and I am hoping for 1.5 do 2 lb once we have dry weight. But we will see, I will definitely be doing a video once we do Harvest and dry them so you guys know what we get for the dry weight. But anyways for today's update we are going to be doing a watering this is the second plain water and since the last nutrient feeding.

 Of course you got to gallons mixed up with a full tablespoon of the grape sweet by Botanicare. And we will be splitting that between all four of the plants here. Next we will be shaking the CO2 canisters of course like we do every day, and they're actually not yet ready for a refill, these ones are going for a pretty good amount of time stand strong still. So very happy about that. Anyways that is going to be pretty much it for today's update, we are not going to be lowering the light at all today or doing any defoliation.

 I will probably lower it again, the lights I will lower again tomorrow but I think I am going to wait a few more days before I do any more defoliation. All right so I'm going to go ahead and get started with that watering and then I will see you guys back here in twenty-four hours for the fifth day of the week. All right peace! 

Alright folks, we are back for day 5 and today is going to be a pretty mellow on as we do not have too much going on. So we are going to be lowering the lights as I was mentioning yesterday, we will be lowering them one inch of peace and we will then be doing one of our small waterings today. I have not mixed it up yet as you can see but it is going to be again 1/2 gal mixed up with half a tablespoon of the grape sweet by Botanicare. Again that is 1.5 teaspoons or half a tablespoon.

 So we will also be shaking up the CO2 canisters and besides that it is pretty much it. We are going to give you guys some nice close-ups on the buds in a second here but real quick you can see they are all just stacking up really nice. So I'm not going to do any defoliating today, as it doesn't really look necessary. In fact all of these plants are thoroughly defoliated except for the back right one. And really that is just because it is the most difficult to get to as you guys can see, the way I set up my tent I have a wall it is right up against. So I can't really get that back panel like I can on this side here. But now that I have learned from that I'm going to move it over, get this dresser out of here this armoire.

 And then that way I will be able to have access to both sides for the next grow. But anyways it is still pretty well defoliated just not maximize door the best that it could be. So I'm going to go ahead and do that small watering and then lowering of the lights and then I will see you guys back here in twenty-four hours for the sixth day of this week. R i p scru maximized or the best that it could be. So I'm going to go ahead and do that small watering and then lowering of the lights and then I will see you guys back here in 24 hours for the sixth day of this week. Alright, Peace Growers!

What up Growers, so we are back here for the sixth day of the week, and I can't be more ecstatic about how the plants and their buds are developing thus far. So today we are ready for a watering, this is going to be our third plane watering since the last nutrient feeding. Course we have the two gallons mixed up with the full tablespoon of the grape sweet mixed in. And then that will be split between all four of the plant. Now course we will be shaking the CO2 canisters, they are about due for a refill, probably in a few days here though. I will not be lowering the lights any today but tomorrow I will be.

 But I will be doing a little bit of defoliation today, as you can see some leaves are a little bit damaged. Some are even curling at the tips just from a little bit of heat stress that we may have had earlier today. So what I'm going to do is defoliate those leaves and remove them probably going to just remove a handful of leaves from each plant. This back right plant doesn't look like it has any that are damaged. Really just looks like the front two plants and maybe a few on the back left. 

 Buds are getting really Frosty everyday honest I can see a noticeable change in the trichome development pretty much every 24 hours as I keep saying. And smell is off the charts it is getting more potent every day. And so yeah I'm just really really happy with how these are coming out and I can't wait to see how big and how Frosty they are once it comes time to harvest. 

So get excited for that, we can already see I mean we've got dozens of main colas growing in here so it is only a matter of time before we're going to have an amazing Harvest with these ladies. So I'm going to go ahead and get that watering done as well as some of that defoliate Sheeran and then I will see you guys back here for the last day of the week in 24 hours. Peace! 

Hey there growers, so we are not back here for the last day of week 12. So I actually already did the lowering of the lights coming again it was just one inch per light that I lowered them, make sure that they are nice and level and you know not too low on one end and then a little higher on the other. You can see there are still no signs of stress from the plants or the lights being lowered closer to the plants and that's why I am continuing to do so a little bit every other day. Now besides that we are going to be doing our light watering today and that is going to be a half gallon of water mixed up with half a tablespoon which is also 1.5 teaspoons of the grape sweet by Botanicare. 

Now here are the trimmings from defoliation I did yesterday as well as some of from what I did today. And you can see a decent amount in there, I was really just removing any leaves that had kind of grown over any bud sites and covered them up as well as any yellowed or crispy leaves that might have formed. Besides that we are just going to be shaking up to our CO2 canisters and just making sure that temperature and humidity stay on point. Of course it is very important to keep a nice air circulation and air flow going in the tent so that is why we have multiple fans in here. 

One below the canopy and then of course one above the canopy that is oscillating. If you do not have good airflow or air circulation, your air is stagnant in the tent, that can lead to mold as well as other issues and pests. Now one thing I wanted to show you with the leaves that is pretty cool is this fan leaf that we were moved here. I don't know if I'll be able to get a good shot of it off the camera but it actually at the bottom here it is glistening. Some trichomes we're starting to form on this one so it was starting to become a little bit of a Sugar Leaf, I had to remove it though because it was covering up a very important node or bud site.

 So let me see if I can get another good look at that, I will give you guys a good shot of this in the upcoming video where I do the water in as well once I have two hands. But anyways you guys get the idea there, it was kind of glistening. So I am going to go ahead and feed the plants this little watering of the grape sweet, again half a gallon mixed up with half a tbsp. And then that pretty much wraps up this week's video, again it is week 12, this is the last day of the week and then I will see you guys back here for a week 13. All right peace!

Ok GreenBox Growers, so that concludes this week's video!  And again it is week 12 overall for the grow series or week 4 of flower. Now we are pretty much through the middle of the flowering phase coming up on the last few weeks here so get ready to see some extra fast Bud development as they finish up. And once that whole phase of development has completed, that is when we will do our 2-week flush of the buds. Now that is a really important process so be sure to stay tuned and watch that video because that is one of the most critical parts of the grow.

Now as we start wrapping up the grow series it is important to stay on top of maintaining ideal temperature and humidity conditions in the tent because these parts or this last part of the grow is just as important if not more important and the entire rest of this whole grow. So for the best results just be sure to keep everything ideal and as you have been already. And of course I will be back shortly with the next update in this grow series which is of course going to be the fifth week of flower or week 13 overall. So before I go I just want to thank you guys as always watching, I really hope you enjoyed this week's episode and until next time... 

Happy Growing!!

Agent Orange Update: Week 4 of Vegetation

Almost ready for the SCROG Net + More LST!


Alright GreenBox Growers welcome back for week 4 vegetation for Cody's agent orange beginner grow series! So we have been seeing a lot of new top growth going on so this week we are going to be continuing with the LST with that three-finger technique. And then with a couple weeks here we will probably be ready to use this scrog. The scrog here is from Growers scrog Nets .Com, it is a double layer so it has a lower layer for the lower parts of the canopy where the tops are. I think for this setup we are just going to be using one layer but yeah it will still be really useful in the two by four tent.

 But yeah we are just going to be doing some minor LST this week though, it is just exciting and I wanted to show you guys that so you get an idea of what we will be using in the near future. Yeah so we will have the link or the week is right here on the screen to growerscrognets.com, is a really good company that I've been working with. And yeah it's going to be a really exciting week, hopefully we only need one to two more weeks of vegetation before we get that scrog net up there. And now that you guys know what we are doing in this week's video, Let's Get start with day one of the week!

Hey guys, here we are for day one of the week, the plants are looking great it really seemed to be liking that extra 5% of light power that we added. I think I need to mention that last time we went up to 25%, I need to correct that as we actually went up from 15% to 20%. Because they liked it so much, I think what we will be doing is now going up to 25%, and I think we will also be doing some minor LST because they are growing upwards but we want them to continue widening and getting more bushy. 

So we will give them some LST. Lastly the soil is pretty dry so we will be doing a plain water in. This is going to be the third plain watering since the last nutrient feeding. And then of course the usual misting for the girls, and as far as water and goes today we are going to be using a half gallon total so each of these plants will be drinking a 1/4 gallon of water. And that is going to do a guys so we are going to go ahead to a quite a bit with these plants today and then we will see you tomorrow for day two of the week!

Hey guys it is day two of the week the plants are looking really good here, they are starting to really spring up and they are also getting good and wide. The plant is filling out basically, the coloration is still good and the soil today is still pretty moist so we are just going to let it be for today. We are going to do a misting but I do want to do a round of LST first. Just to continue with getting the plants to grow outward and to help it get every top an opportunity to grow well. So let's go ahead and get some of that LST going here. And one thing I wanted to mention guys before you start with the LST is tomorrow we will probably turn up the light another 5%.

 Just because the plants seem to be really responding well to the light oh, we just want to give them time to graduate to that so tomorrow they are really wanting that extra light. And just to remind you we are on the cannagrow 200 watt Cree cob LED light here. They hooked us up with this and now we are using this light currently for this grow here on the agent orange. And you can check out their products on Amazon, just search cannagrow LED and they should pop up no problem. So I'm going to go ahead and get this LST taken care of with some misting and then that will be it for today guys.

Hey guys here we are for day three of the week, the plants are looking great and they are, you know we did some LST yesterday and they look like they are responding well to it. But I think we could probably give them a rest just because I have been going at it a lot with the LST. So I really just want to let them start growing now and not really do too much to them. 

The soil is still obviously moist so we are not going to water today but we are going to do the misting and then that will do it. And then one more thing guys actually before we get out of here, we are going to turn the light up another 5% so let me just go ahead and do that. So at this point we are all the way up to 30%. All right so that is all we did today, just a misting and then we changed the power of the light and then that will do it. We will see you tomorrow for day 4!

Hey guys here we are for day 4 of the week, the plants really look like they have grown quite a bit since yesterday. They look really full which I'm stoked to see because they were definitely needing to fill out more, and it seems like they are responding well to the light being turned up more. So I think we might actually do that again, we will go from 30% to 35% on the light. This is our cannagrow Cree cob LED we got going here, so just a reminder you will be at 35%, At the end of today. And then the soil is looking pretty dry here, so we will go ahead and do a watering today. 

And since it has been 3 playing waterings we are going to do a nutrient feeding today with our Fox Farm Dirty Dozen. So we are at week 2 of the vegetative mix for the fox farm feeding schedule, we are doing it at three-quarter strength and we are also adding some cal-mag to that. We are going to be using a half gallon of solution today for these two plants. So they will each be getting 1/4 of a gallon of solution. And then just the usual misting oh, and like I said we are turning up the light, our CanaGrow Cree cob led to 35%. And then that should do it for today guys, no LST and then we will see you back tomorrow or day 5! 

Hey guys welcome back, it is day five, the plants are looking great and as you can tell we just did a nice misting with them. So other than that today we are just going to be doing a little LST. And then also because the plants keep responding better and better to raising the light I am going to raise it another 5%. So let me just get in there oh, okay so that is another 5%. So we should be at 40% now correct, yep we are at 40% now! Looking good, so we are going to go ahead and get that LST taken care of guys and then we will see you tomorrow for day 6.

Hey guys, it is day 6 of the week, the plants are looking very nice today! Really filling out and I can tell they are getting much thicker in the stems now that they are getting higher and higher light power hello there was a time there when they were kind of looking a little leggy as I have heard Dylan say. But they are definitely getting sturdier now. The soil is still pretty moist today so we will not do any watering it, but we will do a misting. And then we are going to raise up the dial 5% so we are going up to 45% I believe. Yes we are at 45% now. And I just want to keep going cuz I really think I had these way too low in terms of light power, so I really want to get them at the right amount. And then get them to their maximum potential, okay so let's get the misting taken care of and then that will do it for today guys. So we will see you tomorrow for the last day of the week!

Hey guys, welcome back it is the last day of the week in the plants are looking great. I really am happy with how they are responding to this continual increase and light strength. So I am hoping we continue to see more increase in girth for the stems as well as bushiness in general for the plants.  Today the soil is looking pretty dry so we are going to go ahead and do a watering, we will do the same half gallon it is just going to be a plane watering, the first one since last nutrient feeding. 

We will do some LST, the plants have had a day of rest so we will go ahead and do that today. And then we will go ahead and do the misting and it is also important for you guys to know that our CanaGrow Cree Cob LED has been raised about four in just to increase the footprint it has on the plants. And as we increase the power we don't want to keep it too close to the plants as they are getting taller so it is good to just keep it at a good height. Okay guys so that does it for this week and we will see you tomorrow for the next one!

Alright Growers so the first month is officially in the books for Cody's beginner Agent Orange grow series. And as you guys could see you in that last pic, one of the tops ended up working on the other one did not. Cody do you want to elaborate on that?! Yeah so basically on the first one I did that tape was well wrapped around and it was a good length and it was basically just holding the broken part up like a splint. And it was keeping the 2 broken ends together so that the contact could kind of fit back together and heal. 

Whereas on the other one it just for some reason looked like the tape had come unraveled and so it wasn't able to hold it up for that to happen and it just basically maintained that broken spot. And eventually the top died because it wasn't getting that connection made. And yeah we could kind of see through the tape and it looked like there was kind of a gap between the part that broke off and then the base of it.

 So that is why I died in the video and then as you guys saw, the other one that was done properly is still alive and thriving so that is good. So yeah that pretty much wraps it up for this week's video but we will be back shortly for week 5. Hopefully after this coming week we will be adding the scrog net and then shortly after that we will be going into flower. So until then Happy growing! 


Happy Growing!

OG Kush Week 4 of Veg

First Defoliation + Adding the SCROG Net!


 
 

What up GreenBox Growers and Welcome back to the week for video of that OG Kush Screen of Green Grow Series! now this week's video is a very crucial one because first of all we are going to be adding that scrog net to the tent, and then we will also be starting some defoliation a few days after that. So now that you guys know what we are doing in this week's video, let's get started with day 1 of the week where we will also be doing that next nutrients feeding!

All right GreenBox Growers, welcome to day one of the week and this is actually a really important one because we've got a lot going on today. Now first of all just a reminder to shake up the CO2 canisters if you are using them. So all four of the plants are ready for their next watering and that's going to be our next nutrient feeding. Remember this is just the second one overall for this grow series, and I'm sorry actually the third one overall overall.  And so we are going to be doing that at 3/4 strength and I am going to be doing the week to mix of vegetation from the fox farm Dirty Dozen schedule.

 So I will be using the Big Bloom, grow big, Boomerang, kangaroots, microbe brew, and then finally cal-mag and again all at 3/4 straight. I will of course be missing them as well and I will also be using the grape sweet but that won't be until later on once we start the flowering stage. So I am going to mix up a gallon of water to begin with I think that's all it's going to take is just a gallon of the nutrient mix, split between all four of the plants. So after I do that I am going to add on the scrog net here, the first layer because remember this is a double-layered scrog net but we are just going to start with the first one and I am going to put it up at about 5 to 8 in from the tallest part of the tallest plant in here.


Now I'm going to wait until tomorrow to start with the defoliation because I want the plants to get that next watering in their systems first. But what I will be doing then is just removing these really large fan leaves because that is going to help allow for more tops and nodes to grow through the canopy instead of just foliage. And then of course that means it is going to lead to more yields of Bud. So now what I'm going to do is get the nutrients mixed up and then I'm going to water the plants and set up the scrog net and then also give them that misting, and then I will see you guys back here for day 2 of the week in 24 hours!

All right growers so we are back here 24 hours after adding that Scrog net above the plants, and that also means that it is day 2 of this week. So the plants are good for them that watering yesterday or the nutrient feeding, so no need to water them today. We will be missing them today however, the usual two to three times per day routine. And as you can see here actually, one of the plants is just about growing through the net already. So the idea with the scrog net is once a branch grows through a square, we are going to pull it back down and then pull it out horizontally away from the center of the plant, towards the edge of the tent. And what that will do is open up more light for the canopy below so more tops can grow up. 

And eventually what that will give us is a full canopy of nodes or I'm sorry of main colas coming through the scrog net.

And then that is when we will flip them into flour. So besides that misting we are also shaking up the CO2 canisters as always and I am actually going to do that first defoliation today. So to give you guys an idea I already mentioned how we will be removing  all of the large fan leaves like this that are blocking a lot of light from getting below the canopy. And then also what we will be doing is removing those low leaves that are kind of sitting in the soil and have yellowed a little bit down below the canopy. 

Just because you like you can see over here under there, that stuff we are just going to be removing it reason being is that is not really alive anymore. Is not benefiting the plant so just cleaning it up will leave a healthier plant in the end. So we are going to be using a clean pair of Fiskar trimmers to do this defoliation, so now let's get to it! 

So now that we finished that first defoliation, I just want to give you guys a couple more tips for the defoliation process. So first off we are only removing about 15% of all of the fan leaves this time around. And you don't want to remove too many at once especially early on in vegetation because it can slow growth, and the idea really is we are just finding it out so the plant can grow back even bushier and thicker than before. We are going for those families because that is not where in the bud sites will be and the plant doesn't need those once it has more leaves above. 

So that is why we are removing those big ones and also when you do I remove them, be sure to clip them about half an inch away from the main stalk that they are connected to. You do not want to cut it right at the stock because that can add some stress and damage to the plant. So like I said we've got this one top starting to come through and hopefully by tomorrow it will be further up and I can train her back through to a further square and I will show you guys how to do that. So that's it for today's update and I will see you guys back here for day 3 of the week!

What up Growers that we are back here now for day 3 of week 4 and so that also means 24 hours later since we did that first defoliation. So like I was saying we removed all of this really large fan leaves as well as any that were covering up or blocking lower node sites. You do not want to do too much defoliation the first time around because it can shock the plant a little bit, so that is why I said do about 10 to 15% and then you will be good to go. As we get into flour we will start to get a little more crazy with the defoliation removing good portions and chunks of those leaves, but for now we're just going to keep it mellow. 

So today you can actually see a little bit of this plant has grown further through that first SCROG net Square. So what I'm going to do is train it out and away from the middle of the scrog where the middle of the plant. Just like we were doing with that low stress training with the idea of taking it to the edge of the tent opposed to back towards the middle so that exposes light to those lower nodes. So what I'm going to do is just simply pull this top down and then threw back out through the square that is a little wider away.  As it grows further up through this trellis or through the Strong net, it will be easier to hook to further away squares, and eventually we will work this guy all the way out to the edge here allowing for more tops to come up from below to fill the space where it once was. 

So today the plants are actually ready for their next watering, I just checked the soil, so they are going to be getting their first plain water and since that last nutrients feeding and I've got about a gallon here of water straight from the tap and I'm going to split it between all four of these plants and then give them a plain misting. As always, don't forget to shake up your CO2 canisters if you are using them and now let's get started with that watering and misting, now she got back here for the next day of the week!

We are back here for day 4 of the week and the plants are actually starting to drink a lot of water much faster than they were doing before. Now you guys remember we just watered them yesterday and already it looks like they are almost ready for their next watering so probably by tomorrow they will be ready again. So pretty much at that every other day watering  set up. And that means they are drinking pretty quickly, so be sure to shake up your CO2 canisters if you are using them and we are going to be missing them two to three times a day as usual. Now there isn't really too much else to do today other than as you can see I did a little bit of that three-finger LST training so all I'm really doing at this point is lightly bending out the branches and to the direction away from the center of the plant of course. 


And the reason for that is because they were starting to grow up tall and starting to get a little bushy and we're covering up the lower canopy or the lower note growth. So just decide to do that to help spread them out a little further and so allow for more tops to grow up from the bottom of that canopy. So we can easily fill out this whole scrog net. So as you guys can see most of the plants are just about touching the net, or even after doing that low stress training you can see these three plants were touching the scrog net before I meant them down. This guy was almost there but I did then did a little bit. So that's pretty much it for day four update and I will see you guys back here in 24 hours for day 5 of the week.  All right peace Growers!

Alright so we are back here for the next day of the week so does now day 5 in the plants are actually ready for their next watering. I just checked the soil and it is dry a little over an inch deep so they are a little past being ready and that explains why they are looking a little droopy and they are not really standing up completely. You can see some of the leaves over there look a little droopy, actually there's a little bit on all of the plants but just a sign that they are under watered and ready to be watered. So today we will be doing the second plain watering since that last nutrients feeding and I will also be misting them and of course shaking up the CO2 canisters if you are using those.

Now before I do that watering I just want to cover that low stress training, you can see that the top or the bending that we did yesterday the 3-finger low-stress training, it's helping a lot because it is allowing for a lot of new tops to grow up from the center of that canopy. So by the time all of these plants reach the scrog net they are going to have hopefully 20 to 30 like I was saying different tops, and then don't forget we do have a second layer to the scrog net which I will be adding later on once all of these grow through the first one. And that will allow for even more tops to be formed before we flip them to flower. So now that you guys have seen the plants, you can see the new growth and the reason they haven't all stood back up from the low stress training it's just because of that low watering that I was discussing. All right so now I am going to give them that second plane watering as well as their misting, and then I will see you guys back here in 24 hours for day 6 of the week!


Alright alright Growers we are back here for day 6 of the week for and as you can see all of the plants have just about reached the scrog net sent that last LST training. So there is only this one top over here that has poked through and I am actually going to let it grow a few inches taller at this point before I try to pull it out to a further square away from the center. At this point I just checked the soil and the plans are still good from yesterday's watering but they do look like they will be ready by tomorrow. So for today all we are going to be doing is giving the plants are good misting and then also don't forget to shake up your CO2 canisters if you are using those TNB Natural CO2 canisters. 

 So let me give them a misting and my hopes are stop by the middle of next week which will be week 5 of vegetation, we will have at least some tops from each plant growing through the scrog so we can start training those outward and then one more important thing that I want to mention before I go. I actually started lowering the light today, so today I lowered this one 2 inches and I still only have the one of the two lights on. Again this is the 300 watt electric sky and I have a second one waiting for when we are about ready to start flower. 

But I did notice that some of the tops were starting to stretch a little bit and that is why I lowered the light. Also because it is about I mean this is about three and a half to 4 feet from the plants which is a really far distance so it is a good idea to start lowering a little bit each day. Until we are about in the two-and-a-half foot range. So I will be updating you guys on lowering that light and then that is pretty much it for today's update. So I will see you guys back here in 24 hours for day 7 of the week.

 What up what up grower so we are back your now for the last day of week 4, and as always the plants are looking amazing! So you can see first of all some of them are not touching the scrog net just yet, that is all right. You can see this one is starting to get through it and not enough yet to be trained to a further square. But what you will notice is all of the plants are getting extra bushy and are filling out with a lot more tops each day. So while they're not getting a lot taller or at the scrog net just yet, that is okay because what we are accomplishing right now is and what  is most important is we are kind of building the structure of the plant so it can hold as much bud and nugs as possible.

So what we are doing again is trying to get as many tops going as possible and that's exactly what we are getting from these plants. And then when we flip them to flower, that will allow us to harvest in yield a lot of extra Bud instead of just having a couple tops in there. So hopefully by the middle of next week like I’ve been saying we are going to see all four of the plants poking through and we can start training them with the scrog.

But in the meantime just keeping the same misting schedule and shaking up the CO2 canisters if you are using them. Now today I did water the plants because they were ready this morning, so I fed them their third plain watering since that last nutrients feeding and I split about a gallon and a quarter between all four of these plants. So that worked really well for them and they were a little bit droopy this morning which is why I did it before the video, and you can see a few hours later they are already perking back up.

Now if you are using the airpods like I've got here, you will notice that there are actually a lot of holes along the side, so when you do water them, a lot of that water does train out really quickly. Now it is pretty important to get that water up because you don't want your plants just sitting in puddles of water, so what I do is I get my wet back out and just vacuum it up really quickly. And that works perfectly, so I am going to go ahead and give these plans I'm missing right after this clip and that is pretty much it for a day 7 of week 4. Alright peace growers!

 Alright GreenBox Growers, that officially concludes week four of vegetation for the OG Kush screen of green grow series.  And like I was saying hopefully next week we will get enough growth so that all of those plants come up through the scrog net and then we can begin training them to further squares that are further away from the center of the tent. And again that is going to allow us to grow more tops in there so again we can increase our yields and the amount of Bud we pull from this grow. So as always thank you guys for watching this week's video, I really hope you enjoyed it and until next time…

Happy Growing!!!

Week 4 of the Low Stress Training Autoflower Grow Series

Week 4 LST Autoflower Grow Series


 
 
 

What's up GreenBox Growers and welcome back to another lit episode of GreenBox Grown. So today I'm going to be starting week 4 of my LST Autoflower series, and this week we will see a lot in terms of the vegetative growth as well as flower grows because they are now transitioning over into the flowering phase. Before I get started with this week's video I want to remind you as always to check out our merch at green box grown.com under the merch and smoke section. 

And don't forget to visit our link Down Below in the description to check out our patreon page where you can sign up for my cannabis growing classes, where I will teach you everything you need to know about home growing and how to grow the best bud possible. All right now that you know what we’re doing in this weeks video, lets get started!

All right bro as we are outside here in the garage, and it is day one of the week and I'm going to give you a close up on the plants to show you how they have progressed since the last video. So you can see they are all getting really tall now, they are not ready yet for a watering and the last watering I did was a nutrient feeding. But like I just said they are getting a lot taller and are mostly starting to flower. This one is the one that is still yet to start, but the other three with this one being the farthest a long are definitely starting to show signs of those pistols for me, which is what those white hairs are or those little white thing sticking up at the center of each top.

 So they are still going to go a long ways and terms of vegetative growth and these are autoflowers so they do flower early on but that doesn't mean that they will be this short when they are done.   So I am expecting these guys to add a couple feet and height each before they finish up. Temperature is still 75 degrees Fahrenheit and with the humidity it lowered a little bit so it's still around 55 to 60% now. And again no more LST training or low stress training. I'm just going to let these guys grow up so you can see how long each of these thoughts really are now that they've had some time to grow. And they are all coming right from the center of that canopy.

Like I said these guys are going to continue to shoot up in height, but they are also going to start to develop a lot in terms of Bud, so I'm very excited now for this part. They are kind of talk the transitional phase except for this guy, all right so it looks like our little spider friend is making an appearance in this week's video. And again I am just keeping, well there's a couple of spiders crawling around in here actually but that's the only one around right now. But like I said the reason I keep it around in the tent because it prevents passed by eating them,  and if he does spend any webs which this doesn't look like the one that does, but if they do just brush them off and you are good to go.

 Another Important part of the start of flower as well as love whole flowering phase, is to have great air circulation and air movement. So you want those families fluttering, but you also want a lot of fresh air exchange coming into the tent so you don't have stale air moving around and that breeze is great for preventing things like mold as well as past from landing on your plants. If they do happen to get your grow room, but important to prevent that all together. and also the breeze or the fluttering helps with strengthening the branches and line them to grow taller with heavier Buds.  Alright guys I will be back in 24 hours with day 2 of the week, peace.

All right green box Growers we are back 4 day 2 of week 4 and you can see the plants are no longer showing signs of light stress and they are also ready for their next watering so in this video I will be doing their next plane pH watering at 6.3. Temperature is still well it is still a little high about 80 81 Fahrenheit, should be closer to 75 degrees. I have the carbon filter going now that they're starting to smell a little bit and that is also helping with air regulation and exchange. You can see these branches here really starting to shoot up and are really tall and lengthy so I might be lowering the light just a few inches, well actually I did just lower it a few inches so I will see how they react to that and tomorrow I will reevaluate and lower again.

 So you can see right now they are all just getting taller so I will put the camera about ground level and you can see their about a foot and a half to two feet and height right now. And they're going to get a lot taller as well as a lot more Bud growth, so now let's do that plane pH watering, and I have just over a gallon mixed up and I think at this point they're going to be able to use all of that up.  So it's going to be a pretty good watering this time. All right so here we go, and while I am watering I would also like to mention that my 360 degree camera just came in today in the mail and so now I'm going to Start filming some of these plants and the series with that camera, it will be a second option that you get so you will be able to watch this normal version and then you will also have the second version with the 360 capability. 

So I will have the camera in the middle of the tent so you guys can kind of look around at two different plants and see those buds as they're growing, and that will be a really cool feature to add to her videos. So these ones were pretty overdue for a watering and you can tell because it's going right through meaning the soil is super dry right now but as always be very gentle water slowly a little bit at a time, as you don't want to move that soil around too much and you definitely don't want to disturb those roots. All right so I'm just about finished here,  and remember I no longer misting the plants just watering.   All right that is it I'll be watering a little more in a second just going to let that soak in.  Again I would like to know how these branches over on this planet are really stretching and getting really tall, and that's a good thing because that's going to lead to a much bigger Buds and that is exactly what we want to happen. All right so I will be back 4 day 3 of the week in another 24 hours, peace!

What up GreenBox Growers I'm back here for day 3 of week 4. So 2 big changes, first I turned up the amount of light these guys are going to get each day, so instead of 18 hours they are up to 21 hours of light each day, and then 3 hours of Darkness each day.  Second thing is I added a second row light in here, and this is just optional but now that they started to flower I decided to add this Mars Hydro 96 reflector light and that is just because these guys put off a lot of good flowering wavelength light. Really purple light so that will help these guys bud and both of the lights are high enough so all of the plants are under both Footprints of both lights. So they are all getting equal amounts of lighting from each.

Now I watered these yesterday with plain pH water, so they are good for now and they will probably be ready tomorrow since it's a little bit hotter in here with the two lights and I mean these guys are starting to grow pretty fast in terms of  height wise, but I think with the second light they are going to start going  even faster. So because they are getting really bushy I decided to spread them out even further than before. Here is a good aerial view to give you guys a good idea of how big they are really getting. So they have more space between each other now so they can spread out and get bigger,  temperature still the same around 75 degrees Fahrenheit, and humidity is in the 55 to 65% range. All right guys I will be back in 24 hours for day for the week.

 What up GreenBox Growers we are here for day 4 of the week, and as you can see these plants are ready for their next watering. It's going to be a plane pH watering, And this will be the second one since the last nutrient feeding so this means one more of these until the next nutrient feeding. Now is always on p a chain at 6.3 and left her pH monitor on there so I just turned it off, and another thing I'd like to point out that I lowered the lights even further so yesterday I talked about How I turn the light schedule up to being 21 hours on  and 3 hours off each day.

 Now I have the lights close to about 26 in from the tops of the heist parts of these plans. And I've still got those lights going, and another thing I want to point out is like I was saying yesterday also with this new lighting it's going to be warmer and the plants are going to be drying out a lot faster, and you can see all of these leaves that are drooping that is because the plants are very thirsty right now and need a lot of water. So this can also be a sign of over-watering but they're going to look different as they will be more rigid and curled. And these ones are more droopy and look kind of Life list, so that's how you tell that it's under watering and not overwatering. You can see over here with this guy the that it is to the point that the leaves are actually laying in the soil so I'm going to water them and it usually only takes like  15 to 30 minutes before they stand back up. 

But you don't want to go too long like this and you want to you don't really want that to happen very frequently, so I just wanted to show you guys what it looks like when they are really thirsty and ready for watering. So in terms of growth all of these main Tops on these plants are starting to get really tall. And this guy over here for whatever reason I think this is the blue Amnesia, yeah, for whatever reason this one top just seems to want to grow up and maybe these guys will do it later. But with all the other plants you can see all the tops are growing evenly, so looking really good and you can see here even a top is lying down that's how much water it needs. So I'm going to give these guys some water now so that they will stand back up and perk back up for us.

All right all right so now that these guys are going to be going through water a lot faster, I'm going to be giving them more water each feeding, so I've got about a gallon and a half maybe a little more than that, and I'm going to give each of these plants, I'm going to split that between each of these plants are all four of them. So is always you are going to want to give them a quick soaking and let that go and soak to the  bottom before giving it some more. And you're just going to want to evenly water all of the topsoil, now with the leaves that are laying in the dirt I'm going to pull those up after watering so they are not just laying there or that will damage them and cause other issues with the plant. So don't just let them lay there and soak in the soil as that will kill them and possibly cause some mold to form or some sort of powdery mildew.

 There they go that's their first soaking, I'm going to let that soak in and then I'll be back  to finish giving them the rest of this water. I'll also come back with the shot when they perk back up so you can see what that looks like, so I'll be back for that shot and that will probably be another 30 minutes before they perk up. All right here we are just an hour later and the leaves have started standing back up for most of the plants, you can see they're still a little droopy back there but definitely better than before. Probably just going to take a little longer for these guys to get back to Standing full up right. Cuz they were probably just really underwater.

 You can see these guys are starting to get up and are getting taller and catching up with this main branch here, and the ones in the back they are starting to get taller as well now. I think that new Mars Hydro is going to help them too, and then this guy seems to be doing the best out of all of them, still growing a lot in terms of vegetative growth, And they're still going to get a lot more bigger,  all of them will actually. But yeah here they are an hour later like I was saying and they are just about back to standing fully up right. So I will be back in 24 hours for day 5 the week. peace guys!

All right Growers word back for day 5 of the week and the plants are still growing up words really well.  They got a little yellow, a little light burn as you can see with this guy right here,  the talk to Yellow Toad and the leave cruel down a little bit, so I just pulled the light back up, this thing is a little finicky with distant so I just decided I'm going to keep it up there for the rest of the grow unless by some miracle these guys are going to handle the light up close really well. So I'm just going to keep that 900 watt LED up high and besides that everything else is the same, you can see there are a lot less droopy and terms of the under watering, and the leaves are curled down a little bit because of the light intensity but those should perk up now that I've raised them. 

They are getting taller a lot taller actually so that is good, and you can see this guy is just starting to flower as well, so they should all be progressing really well in the next couple of weeks. And then here's just a quick aerial shot to show you guys the different tops and how they are growing and then of course temperature and humidity are the same. Got to keep a lot of good airflow going with a breeze so these guys flutter and they flutter a little more once the door is closed and there's better circulation going around. But besides that they are all good and I will be back in 24 hours per day 6 of the week, all right please guys!

All right green box Growers, we are back 4 day 6 of week 4 and you can see I've got my 360 camera going in the middle there and this back right Tangie plant has kind of taken a turn for the worst over the last couple of days here and what it looks like is the signs kind of look like over-watering by the way. The leaves are tightly curled under but as you can see in the soil is completely dry. So the issues light burn and light stress and it is because I had this light to close, with LEDs it'll take a few week sometimes before the plants really show signs that they are being affected. 

So I just decided to raise the 900 watt all the way up to the ceiling and I hopefully after a water today and the plant takes up that water, hopefully those leaves stand back up or at least in the next few days. I've also been talking to a few people who've been growing the Tangerine Dream genetics before and they said they are pretty Sensitive to light in, so that is another reason why that would be happening, but as you can see the other plants are doing really well especially this guy right here. Just shooting up really tall and this one starting to catch up a little bit, and then the one in the back I'm hoping will do so now as well since the lights have been raised.

All right so today is the third plane pH watering since the last nutrient feeding and I've got about 10 gallons, sorry I've got about 2 gallons mixed at 6.3. All right now I'm just going to give them a really good watering as they are pretty dry, the soil is pretty dry right now and with the light stress they tend to take up more water and where nutrients so it's good to feed a little extra to help curb that problem.  

You'll notice the leaves look a little bit, the affected leaves from the light stress look a little bit dried out, that's a normal sign and the curling down you'll notice it's the leaves at the very top there curling down and you also knows that the centers of those tops it's really yellow, so those are kind of the signs of how you can tell it's not over watering but instead it's kind of light burn or light stress. As well as the fact that the soil is completely dry so it can't be over watered. All right so now I'm just going to Water this last guy in the back here and then we will be all set.  All right guys now they are completely watered and I will be back in 24 hours for day 7 of the week.

What app green box Growers and welcome back 4 day 7 a week 4. So as of today the plants are looking a lot better since I've raised the light up last night, and you can see I've got it pretty much all the way to the roof. And it was the back right to Angie here that was affected the most by those drooping leaves and the yellowing at the tops but those leaves are actually starting to stand back up there were standing up more earlier today and then as the day went on, they kind of went down a little bit. And that's just because they get tired towards the end of the day since they are recovering. 

And there's still a lot of light going on and here, but I'm hoping by tomorrow they'll be all the way back up to full standing. You can see that's the only plant where it's happening,  I mean this one was doing it a little bit but it's much better now. This guy the front right and then the back left, they seem to be flowering more than the rest or having a little less veg growth while this Tangie dream is still really kicking in terms of bed growth. So you can see it's really getting some tall tops going and I mean this is the best one out of the group I would say.  This one's pretty tall in the back here in this flowering but as you can see it has that light burn going so that's kind of affected it, but these guys will probably be ready for their next watering tomorrow, which will be a nutrient watering. And again I'm doing 21 hours of light and 3 hours of Darkness each day, I've got temp right in that 70 to 78 degrees Fahrenheit rain, and humidity is a little low right now it's at 35% it should really be up to 50. So maybe adding a humidifier here a little later on.

 One thing really quick, since humidity is really low I added a bowl of water into the grow room, and that will help increase the humidity as long as temperature is in the upper 70s just because the high heat will evaporate and then increase humidity in the grow room. And that's a good way to do it once your plans are in flour if you don't want to be missing them, so just added a bowl of water and then tomorrow I'll show you guys what that's done. It's already been in here for a little bit and you can see it's gone from 35 to almost 40% so we'll see how high it increases by tomorrow.

 All right guy said that is officially the end of week 4 and we got a lot of growth like I said coming out of this guy over the course of this week I think we'll see a lot more of the rest of the plans, now that the lights are a lot higher. But some of them have started flowering so they only have so much time left. We'll see what happens, I think this guy this Tangie dream in the front left here is really going to be the highest see older out of all of them since it did the best with the LST, and I guess I would say I learned my lesson and terms of using this 900 watt LED here and how close it's going to be too the plants as you can see by the sky in the back.   All right I'll see you guys another 24 hours for the start of week 5!

 Alright Growers that concludes week 4 of the Autoflower LST series. And I will be back very shortly with week 5 in about a week or two for that video.

Week 4 Low Stress Training for the Screen of Green Grow Series

Week 4 Low Stress Training for the Screen of Green Grow Series

Week 4 LST & Hook Training for the SCROG Grow!


What’s up Cannabis Growers, and welcome back to Week 4 of the Screen of Green Series by GreenBox Grown.  My name is Dylan and in this video I will be covering part 2 of Week 4 which will will include all of the Low Stress & Hook Training I will be doing to these plants over the next 7 days.  I will also show you what the signs of nutrient burn look like and I will cover how to repair a broken branch.  As always, you can view the full Screen of Green Series at greenboxgrown.com under the videos tab. Alright, now lets get started with day 1 of the week.

It has only been a couple of days since I last adjusted the hooks, and already the branches have grown upwards a decent ways.  I’m going to adjust the hooks onto the new growth like usual, and you might be wondering.  If I keep doing that, wont I just have one long branch growing sideways.  And the answer is no.  The reason is when the branch starts to grow sideways, new branches will sprout out of it and grow upwards, so what ends up happening is you have a long trunk growing horizontally with a ton of branches growing out of it!  When adjusting the hook towards new growth, try to get it as close to the end of the branch as possible, as that will prevent the top from growing right back up too soon.  None of the new branches need hooks added to them, so that is all the training I will do for now.

This is the very next day, and already the branches have grown enough to have their hooks adjusted again.  It is important to stay on top of this training each and everyday for best results, but If you miss a couple of days here and there it will not harm your plants.  Ok, so this little branch here I was just trying to bend, snapped and almost completely tore off from the main branch.  

Luckily cannabis plants are extremely resilient and can easily recover from this kind of damage if the proper treatment is given.  All you need to do is take a piece of scotch tape and wrap it around the branch right where it snapped, so the tape is holding it back together with where it broke off.  Once you have it securely fastened you are all done.  Make sure there is no fan blowing right on it or any sort of breeze that will cause it to move around as that can prevent and slow healing.  But what will happen is the branch will fuse itself back together and the branch will continue to grow big and strong.  Here’s a quick shot up close with the tape attached.  You can see I got the fan leave stuck in there and thats ok as long as the branch is being held together.  

Another day later, and I will be adding some more hooks to these plants.  But first, I will adjust the ones that have already been added.  You can see these plants have pretty much all filled up their pots with tops and branches, which is exactly what we want.  With most of these plants I will now start to train them out over the edges of the pots, and with this one It still has a lot of soil to fill so I will cover that up first.  It’s important you train those branches that are in the middle and up high light these because you really want to expose the center of the canopy to as much light as possible for the best results!

Here’s another close up of the broken branch I am fixing with the tape, and you can see it is still perfectly healthy looking and still vibrant which is a good sign.  It will take a week to 2 weeks for it to completely refuse itself back together, so I will leave the tape alone for now.  

As I am looking through the plants, a lot of these tops look like they don’t need their hook adjust yet and can grow a little more first so I will just leave them be.  There are a couple that need slight adjustments or a little LST but that’s about it for now.

This is the final day of Week 4 and the plants have grown a decent amount since the previous day, so they are ready for some hook adjustments.  At this point however I will not be adding any new hooks as they are not needed to be at this time.   You can see this leaf here is browning and showing signs of a nutrient burn or other issue.  Some of the other leafs have some light discoloration around the edges which is a mild burn so nothing to really worry about.  I will just lighten the nutrients a little bit.  Also, if you have leaves closest to the fans that are yellowing or browning, it could be due to too much wind blowing too forcefully on them, so always consider that.

Alright folks, that is the end of this weeks Training as well as Week 4 for the Screen of Green Series by GreenBox Grown.  I will be back with Week 5 for the SCROG series shortly, but in the meantime you can visit greenboxgrown.com for the rest of this series.  If you enjoyed the video, please give it a thumbs up and comment below with your feedback.  Also don’t forget to subscribe to my channel and turn on the notifications for updates on my latest grows!  As always, thank you for watching and until next time…

What’s up Cannabis Growers, my name is Dylan and Welcome back for week 4 of the Screen of Green Series by GreenBox Grown!  This week will be similar to last in that it will be broken up into 2 videos, 1 about watering and the other for LST.  These plants are getting to a pretty good size at this point and are really getting bushy!  Also, after this week there will be only 2 more weeks of veg before I add the actual SCROG to these plants.  Its going to be one large wooden SCROG that is about 4ft wide and 7 ft long, with thick nylon string that will be very gentle on the branches.  As always, you can visit greenboxgrown.com for the full SCROG series and for videos on how to build the actual Screen itself.  Alright, now lets get started with this weeks watering and nutrient feeding schedule!


Here we are for day 1 of the week, and the soil is dry a little over an inch deep all the way around, so these plants are ready for a watering.  This time I will be giving them a plain pH’d watering at 5.8 and I will be misting them with plain pH’d water in the range of 5.5-6.5.  

You can see I am starting at the base of the plant and watering around in a circular motion towards to the edge of the pot.  The plants still do not need that much water, so I am only using half a gallon split between all 4 of these plants.  Once you have finished watering, you can give each plant a good covering of mist and you are all finished.  

2 days later, and the plants are ready for another watering.  It has been pretty hot weather lately so that is why the soil is drying up so quickly.  Usually when the weather is on the cooler side, I have to wait 3-4 days between each watering.  Also, these plants are ready for nutrients since there have been the 2-3 plain pHd waterings since the last nutrient feeding.  I will be using the week 4 of vegetation mix on the Fox Farm Schedule, and will also be adding half a tsp of coco wet per gallon of water.  For the foliar spray, I will be mixing the flower kiss the came with the dirty dozen pack, and then once everything is stirred together, It is ready to be pHd.  Now that everything is ready I will water and mist the plants.  

There will also be days where the soil is still too wet to be watered, and on those days you still want to mist the plants with a plain pHd mix.  You can spray the plant several times throughout the day, and on hotter days you can spray them even more often.  misting the plants is really helpful because it helps keep the fan leaves big and healthy, which is crucial for having rapid growth!

For the rest of this video, I will only be providing plain pH’d water and mist for the plants.  However,  I want you to pay attention to how large the plants have gotten and just how much the have grown over the course of this video.  If you rewind back to the beginning, look at how much of the soil is exposed and not covered by leaves, and then fast forward to the end and you can barely see any of the soil because it is all covered by foliage!  That is exactly what we want to happen with these plants, and this rapid growth is a sign of proper LST and hook training.  

Alright guys, that officially concludes part 1 of week 4, which was the nutrients and watering schedule for the week.  The next video in this series will be part 2 of week 4 and will be about the LST and Hook Training I perform for the week.  Remember it is important to watch both videos back to back as these steps need to be performed together throughout the week.
