Today was Bruce’s water change day! I had already looked at the trichomes with my loupe, and they are not as amber as I’d like them to be, so I’ve already extended the flowering phase for another week; it was day 36/37 of the flowering phase. Today is actually day 106 of the total grow, but day 36/44 of the flowering phase of the generic auto recipe I switched to 36 days ago from the photo period recipe for Bruce Banner I was using.
Everything looks good from what I can tell! I added 12 mL of Hydroguard. The roots look good.
I have some dried leaves here and there, but that’s because their little stems broke a little probably during trimming, so I pulled them off. I see little spots on the leaves but I’ve read that that’s normal at this phase.
My nutrients are moving as expected, and I mark them each time I do a water change. This is my second bottle for numbers 3, 4, and 5 for this grow.
I took some pictures on the 10x zoom on my iPhone, and I used my microscope camera to get pictures of the trichomes. I need to find some kind of articulating arm clamp that will hold the microscope camera steady, so I can get better pictures. I take a lot of pictures, but I can only keep a few of them because the rest of them are blurry.
I bought a bottle of the flawless finish, but I’m not sure when I’m supposed to use it. Is it worth it at this point? Any suggestions are welcome! I’ll check on Bruce again during his next water change, and see when it’s time to go into flush. I’m waiting for him to be the majority amber and less milky white.
