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.

Both of my seeds came up, and are looking lovely. So, I figured I would give you some basic info on the strain. I was looking for something sweet and great tasting for some variety, and I decided that the Cherry Bomb from Bomb Seeds is the way to go. Cherry Bomb is a Indica-dominant Hybrid, developed by Bomb Seeds by crossing they’re monster yielding Big Bomb with a unique and fruity Cherry variety. Because it is an Indica dominant, the plants grow short and bushy, and stay at a low to medium height, which is just perfect for my small space. The THC content is extremely high around 25%. I am not sure what the CBD content is exactly. The yield is also high. It can be grown indoor or outdoor. Indoors it will take 8 to 10 weeks to flower. Outdoor the harvest comes in late September early October. Because of its Indica genes, the effect is couch locking and relaxing, very sedating.
Exciting exciting times. I am less than two weeks away from the target harvest date, so I started flushing my plants. Both of the Blue Dreams (pictured above), and the two White Widows behind them are getting ready to be harvested. I cut out all the nutrients, and for the last 2 weeks of the flowering time. I will only be watering them. The purpose of this flush is to wash out any excess nutrients and chemicals from the soil and the plants. Proper flushing insures that my flowers will not have any chemical or nutrient residue, and therefore will not have any weird taste. A properly flushed plant will produce the cleanest, most pure form of marijuana. When flushing your plants, especially the ones growing in soil, make sure to give them plenty of water, to have some runoff.
Day 17 of flowering for my “White Widow” and “Blue Dream“. The girls are really stretching. I had to raise the lights several times already. Good thing I got the adjustable height on my chains. Looking very well. Buds are developing very nicely. The girls are getting a bit bushy, and need to get defoliated, so I’m thinking I will do a little bit of the defoliation tomorrow.
My girls are over growing the vegetative section of my tent, so I am flipping them to flowering mode. I have two White Widows and two Blue Dreams going into the flowering today. Today is day zero, stay tuned for more updates.
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.
July 10th, 2018 – Day 62 of flowering for “Channel”. Started the flush today. By my calculations, she’s about 8 days away from being perfectly ready. So she gets nothing but plain tap water from now on. Not even gonna pH it down.
