@Bplatinum9 thank you so much!
Day 40 3/23 Flower, Update. I Feel like there has definitely been some positive change over the past 24 hours but still have some more recovery time implemented however, she’s still seems to be growing and blooming still. The roots looks pretty solid to me but if there’s anything I maybe missing there I would appreciate any and all advice!
@Bplatinum9 @SWSVIC @pyromancy @Vicc
Definitely looking a lot happier my man, you’ve got it under control
She looks back to normal today, I will be topping off the res tomorrow and posting an update. Cheers
Day 44 7/23 Flower. So…to start things off, a horrible storm came through the past 2 days and wiped out my power and wifi since Wednesday until now…I took some protocols and lowered the water level for a little to help while no bubbles and as far as light goes I was not able to do much for her unfortunately, but I did shine a very powerful flashlight a couple times during the outage. She seems to be on the right track again now that this whole mess has passed. I performed a water change this evening and also took some pics. I have a new concern that I saw but need some advice, something that looks almost like pollen sacks have formed on the stems of her…but to be honest I saw this happening before the power outage issues, if that is in fact what I am seeing I would like to know why it happened and how I can prevent this in future grows? Also will this effect my current grow in any negative way? This has definitely been a more challenging grow than the first ironically because it’s an Auto, but hope it still has a good outcome!
All advice is welcome and thanks in advance for keeping up with this grow! Cheers
@SWSVIC @Bplatinum9 @pyromancy @Vicc
Sorry about the outage, here is what i found about with dealing with hermie him/her plants: you can probably pluck the sacs to protect your buds. I am not sure if its worth starting over or not. but if I was in your shoes, I would probably start over or if i do harvest, just turn these into butter or oils.
UGH! Sorry to hear of all of this . As far as the herm issue, I would definitely check in with the breeder on IG or via email to inquire on if it was something caused by you or your environment, or if there have been other reports of this happening with this particular genetic.
@Vicc thanks for the advice man, @SWSVIC after seeing this it has come to my that I realized my first grow also Herm on me because those little things look familiar to my last plant as well… I will talk about it with the smoke report tonight, however it did not really change the way it smokes lol however I did find a few seeds in the batch nothing serious… and after reading that article, it seems its no big deal anyways but I would like to figure out what I might be doing to create this issue since this is hermi pant round 2 in my unit… I think plucking them off to protect her would be okay since she’s the only one around anyways, maybe it could have been stressed from the trimming I did earlier this month or something? Or could possible be something with my unit at all?
Perhaps some of the big guns can weigh in
Do you have a better pic of the “pollen sacks”? Maybe closer-up.
Is this what you’re talking about?
If they have hairs (pistils) protruding from them then they are not male parts. People generally call those calyxes (though technically the calyx is hidden underneath those).
If that’s not the parts you’re referring to please show a better pic!
that is awesome news !!
After searching for calyx I found its a desired commodity due to having a high concentration of resin
Certainly appears that there are hairs protruding from these “bulbs”, @Letsgrowmore let’s see a closeup!
Yeah honestly I was looking for some male stuff in those pics but didn’t realize notice anything that stood out too much, looked like calyxes to me Hopefully all is well @Letsgrowmore
I went ahead and plucked all of them that I saw panicing thinking they are male parts but I am very exited to hear from @vegetato that it’s just Caylex, now a new question…did I harm her by plucking the caylex off? I have to agree because they do in fact have pistles protruding from them, but on another note I’m glad it’s not a herm i was worried being almost 50 days in
@vegetato @SWSVIC @pyromancy
Those were flowers starting there, so I’m not sure if she will re-make those in those specific spots or not. I hope so… but she might give up since you ripped them off ><
We live and learn, this Skywalker strain has been a bit more challenging than the blue dream I did last season from ILGM however knowing @SWSVIC and all his knowledge about genetics this is a mephisto gen and smells real fruity now!
Indeed, live and learn! Who knows if she doesn’t re-produce those areas maybe the energy and nutrients from the plant will now go towards the already existing buds and they will get even bigger
I’m really hoping to see some bulking up during the next month, she’s getting tall this round about the same size as the last grow when it stopped stretching…so maybe switching to transition and flower sooner is the key with this strain!
