Operation Clones is a Go

“Blue Dream” clone is rooting in the new pot

Great news! The Clones that I took a couple of weeks ago are now routing in their new pots. They are doing great. I am starting to notice a lot of new growth at the top. I was a little worried in the beginning, that the Clones would not come up as fast, because they were cut from the plant that was in the late stages of flowering. And yes, they did take a little bit of extra time to acclimate. But they are sprouting new growth, and I am very proud. This time around, I do have a 100% success rate with the cloning procedure. The EZ-cloner was money well spent.

Cannabis Grow Journal: “White Widow” – day 71

“Quebec Purple Bud” after harvest

It it is the 71 of flowering for “White Widow”, “QPB” and the “Channel”. The big news, the qpb was harvested. I decided to cut her down a little bit early, because the leaves were yellowing and she looked like she was ready. I have been flushing her for over a week, so she should be good to go.

Thethe “White Widow” and the “Channel” are now being flushed. They should be ready to go in about a week or so.

Starting the Cloning Process

Cloning Process Started

The time has come to clone some of my girls. I went ahead and took 3 clones of the White Widow, 3 clones of the Blue Dream and 3 clones of Channel. Those are the three strains that I’m going to keep. I am not keeping the Quebec Purple Bud, because I don’t really like the way it’s growing. I don’t like the fact that it’s really finicky and it is very temperamental. I decided to keep the Channel because I like the smell. And I’m keeping the White Widow because that’s the most medically acceptable strain. And the Blue Dream, that’s just the best tasting but I’ve ever had. So I’m definitely going to keep some of those genetics.

I was a bit worried that I am taking clones of the plans that are already way late in the flowering cycle. But I read online that you can clone from any point of the growth cycle and a flowering cycle, so I will test that theory. As you can see from the photo, the white widows. Those are the Clones that are way way far away from you, they actually have very decent sized buds on him already. Hopefully they will not take any extra time to re-veg.

Here is the video.

The best of Twitter (today)

First, the two stoner hamsters.  Always nice to see from our smaller brothers.

And then there is this little Japanese girl that sketched an outline of her cat. And BOTH of their facial expressions are PRICELESS.

Twitter Campaign – Comic Book Giveaway

First, a quick update on my Twitter campaign: as of 8/1/18 I am following 4016 people, and I have 249 followers. That means that since the last reporting date of July 26th, which is less then a week ago, I have more then doubled the number of followers. You can visit my Twitter Project page and see the numbers.

Now on to new business. After deliberate searching, I have decided to run a giveaway on Twitter, to attract more followers. And I plan to use the current trend of Marvel Universe popularity for that purpose. I went through my comic book collection and picked out something that might be interesting for the fans of the upcoming “Venom” movie release. Feast your eyes on Nikki Doyle. The Wild Thing. Hopefully giving away some quality free stuff will bring me more followers. I guess we will see.

 

Grow Journal: “”Blueberry Cough” – Day 61 of Flowering

Day 61 for “Blueberry Cough” and “Channel” Twin #2. The Clone is on day 48 of flowering. Not much going on in the tent. The flush has been started. Plants are getting washed out. We are 9 days away from our target harvest date of 70 days. Looking very well. The nugs on the “Channel” Twin are a lot smaller, but I think a lot more dense then the other seed that I just harvested, the one that’s getting cured right now. Video is coming shortly. I found some interesting guys from the UK. Kind of like me, guerrilla-style growing cannabis. So I’m going to have to give a shout out to them sometime in the videos.
