Day 22 of flowering in my little “mini SCROG” tent. I had to do some serious super cropping, to prevent the tops of the plant from touching the lights, and because space is very limited, I pretty much had to flatten every branch. Lucky for me, this is a weed we are talking about. Cannabis plants are extremely resilient, and mine bounced back very quickly.

There is an old saying that the children of famous people are usually talentless. But not in this case. This is one of those cases, when the child of two celebrities has become famous all on its own. “Chanel” was brought about by crossing the award-winning “Big Bud” with a veteran of the cannabis community and award-winning cannabis strain “Skunk“. Yes, that same “Skunk” that made a big splash in the 1980s. I don’t think “Channel” has ever won a Cannabis Cup, but the strain does have several notable awards and recognitions.
The flowers have great “bag appeal”. (they look even better in the jar) Buds are big and dense, and are covered in crystals. Very frosty looking nugs. The color is a mixture of light green and pale orange, with streaks of red and purple.
Once you light up, the taste is heavy and aromatic. You will remember the old school smell of kind bud. That dense, heavy skunky smell of your childhood marijuana adventures.
Once you smell your childhood, the effects will start to roll in like the ocean waves. This famous product of celebrities porking is very potent, and will hit you hard with each wave. It’s Indica dominant genetics will relax you and help you sleep. It is a great strain for people with insomnia or that have trouble calming down.
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.
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.
Saturday September 15, 2018 – day 46 of “White Widow“, “QPB“, and “Channel“. Day 22 of “Blue Dream“.
Not much news on the White Widow. She and the rest of the old gals are flowering nicely, fattening up. The most news I got is on the Blue Dream. She has completely recovered from her super cropping. And is now Standing Tall. I had to raise my lights a little bit again. But she’s doing very well.
Baby girl is getting a bit of trim, yeah. She is on day 14 of flowering, and almost done, (or I hope she is done) stretching. Good bud development. This particular cannabis strain has “Big Bud” in its genes, so it tends to spread out.
Another quick update on the main flowering tent. The “White Widow”, “QPB” and “Channel” are all on day 35 of flowering, they are doing fantastic. The “Blue Dream” is on day 11 of flowering, and she comes with great big news: It’s a GIRL !!! Sex is confirmed, she is a female. I see lots of little hairs popping out. I am very happy. 🙂
This is the video that we have been waiting on for over two months. 78 days just of flowering time !! And now, here it is. The long awaited HARVEST, and trimming while I’m at it. Seriously, don’t wait. You’ve wanted to see how a cannabis plant is harvested, and trimmed, so go watch the video.
