How does this pot plant look?
    #2248560 - 01/17/04 04:47 PM (12 years, 10 months ago)

This is my only plant...i really just want to have one for some good personals.
Its about 2 feet tall, and showed its first hairs 40 days ago. Does it look like its on track, and it is doing ok?
It was just a bag seed from some mids I had, but I think it is looking much better than the bud I had.
Any info or tips would be great. I just feel like its not getting as big of buds as it should and I am using blooming ferts.





Thanks for any help

check OG pot plants only start budding according to the amount of light you give them. if you want it to grow taller ull adjust your light accordingly and if you want it to bud better ull hafta adjust accordingly. seems like your sorta in the middle there

It looks kinda stretched...what kind of light are you using? And how close to the plant is it? Go to overgrow.com if you want some real help....or the Ethnobotanical Garden forum here...I think this might be moved there anyway...

It looks like a sativa makes sense for bag seeds of mids.so i wouldnt expect any huge buds unless you can provide lots of light.What type of lights are you using.also expect a really long flowering time

Are you using flouros? Because that plant looks like its needs alot more light if you want it to "beef up" , if you are using flouros, get more, or buy a 70-150W hps for best results, good luck, peace.

no point growing weed without a sodium or halide light
that plant is pretty gangly looking
youd be lucky to get a doobie out of that
as said b4 go to overgrow.com and see what it shoud look like

you know, guessing strain is kinda hard, it does look like a sativa tho thats true, but this can be any hybrid. But anyways, you said 40 days since flowerin, so im wondering what kind of light you have? the plant do looks kind of poor now.

you have a nitrogen acess, are you giving it fertiliser? while it is budding you arent supposed to give it any nitrogen.

on the fertiliser box it will have 3 numbers seperated by dashes,
EG ~ 30-15-30 the first number is the percentage of nitrogen, the next potasum and the other potash.

if you are going to use fertiliser you want somthing with a 0-15-15 or somthing with a zero in the nitrogen position.

now to get rid of the fertiliser you allready have in the siol, what you need to do is leach your growing container. take a bucket of water( not too cold) and submerse your growing container in it, let the water saturate the soil and let it drain, do this 3 times and change the water every time.

also 2 weeks before you harvest stop using all fertiliser, and leach the pot again, this will get rid of any chemical taste in the buds, and will make the bud healtier for you.

if you do all of this you will have one fine plant.

i'd leave it for a full 60-70 day flowering period from the sativa characteristics it is showing. watch it closely, since your trichromes won't get too big it looks like, you may have to judge by the hair color. Some say 70% red hairs is the peak harvest time. the leaves should also yellow quite a bit more.

like others have said, up the light to that plant (even if its just a few compact floros) and it will become even more beautiful

The plant looks really healthy, before you flowered did you have it on 24/0? And do you have it on 12/12 now? ? One more thing, is that black thing a microphone? Anyways, I suggest more light and about two weeks left.

Wow, i seen lots of shit advice.

You're plant is obviously sativa dominant or pure sativa, but i'd guess sativa dominant hybrid.

If this is day 40 of flowering. Since it's mainly sativa i'd venture up to a 10 week flowering period you could expect, which is why some people are saying it looks "not-beefy" however if the flower period is shorter than a max of 10 weeks (or more possible). So if you're at 40 days, that's only like 5 - 6 weeks. You still have some time.

For the fertilizer: Your plant Still needs nitrogen even when it's flowering, however it would benefit from more K than N, so you'd want a flowering mix that is lower in nitrogen (BUT NOT ZERO!) and high in K, 15-30-30, 15-30-15 etc..

For harvesting, Trichomes are the only true way! Get a 10x 20x or 30x magnifying loupe, go to a camera store or a jeweler or a electronics parts store. Some say the pistils (hairs: white turning to red) is a good way, but that's crap darkening and withering pistils are two different things and i've seen plants that were ripe when with very little red hairs compared to white. It's all about the trichomes, get a loupe!

questions for you: What kind of light are you using, wattage, space of your grow room, and what was your veg time and veg cycle?

veg cycle was 18-6, it was 12 inches when I switched over to 12-12. I have one 150 watt grow lamp, http://www.hydrofarm.com/content/growlights.html,
its the 3rd one down on there.

Also i have a fluro that is 30 watt, said is for growing, and just another 25 watt one.

I use Green Light Super Bloom ferts now and the ratio is 12-55-6.
Thanks for your help! its much appreciated!

I do fan it often, but not everyday can I have it on it.

fanning isn't hugely important as in it is in mushrooms .Fanning is really dependent upon your grow space when your plant is fully established, a breeze blowing your seedlings is pretty important, but if your grow space is ventillated then you don't need to worry too much about fanning, but air circulation is key to help keep the temp lower to combat the heat of the light and also to keep stale air moving away, and help keep the longevity of your grow light.

And small fan will do, even a computer fan.


edit:
I just looked at your link. Your plant is going to be definitely not at it's peak but it will be decent. Don't expect anything too fantastic, but i bet it'll be atleast as good or better than the mids, but yield will be considerably less.

I understand your grow now, you're doing the best with what you got.

Next time if you plan on doing it again invest some more money and get some HID lamps.

Yep, as neuro said, you'll want to get a better light.  High intensity horticultural lights are best, either metal halide (MH) or High-Pressure Sodium (HPS).  The MH is preferred for vegetative growth whereas HPS is better for flowering.  The HPS will put out more lumens (a measurement of light intensity) per watt than a MH, so if you can only afford one, it's a much better bet to go with the HPS.  If you have an elaborate flourescent light setup, I've seen fair to good results - but the High Intensity lights make a huge positive difference.

Also to reiterate neuro's correction - plants need nitrogen throughout the growth cycle.  During the vegetative period you should have a higher or equal level of Nitrogen (N) to Phosphorus (P) and Potassium (K); then during flowering you switch to higher or equal levels of P than the N or K.  Additionally, you'll want to find a fertalizer with the secondary nutrients and at least a couple of the micronutrients.  I won't go into huge detail on this, but a flowering 15(n)-20(p)-15(k) formula with some Sulfur, Boron, Copper, Iron, Manganese, Molybdenum, and Zinc in it works well. 

You may choose to supplement this with some Epsom Salt to boost Magnesium levels which assist the plant in absorbing nutrients.  Dolomite Lime can also be used to stabalize your pH (as you'll want to keep a neutral or slightly acidic pH throughout) and it will also provide Calcium to your plant.. however some varieties of D.Lime can actually raise your pH making your soil more alkaline.  Also make sure not to over water your plant, you want to give the soil some time to dry out inbetween waterings so oxygen can get to the roots.  Some have been known to supplement small amounts 3-10mL of H2O2 per Liter of water such that the H2O2 can break down to water and oxygen in the soil, providing the roots with some oxygen at the source.

You'll want to ensure that your 150watt flood is as close to your plant as possible without burning it, which will allow your plant to absorb the greatest intensity of light.  If you can hold your hand under the light and it's pretty warm but not very hot (let your hand sit there for a good 30-60 seconds), then your plant should be able to handle it. 

Good luck, and do yourself a favor and find a copy of the Cannabis Grow Bible put out by Greg Green w/ the input and pictures of many Overgrow members.  I could ramble on all day, but I've probabaly already said too much and started to confuse my own words :grin:

I didn't read any replies here so I may be doubling up on some suggestions.

She is a touch gangly. Make sure you have a steady fan blowing on her, increase (or lower) your light and and make sure you are at a 12/12 light cycle.

A sativa indoors is usually not a good idea due to their unruliness. But since you have her growing, give her 70-80 days of 12/12 to allow her to reach full maturity.

Don't be over anxious because of her lack of thickness and start feeding her like mad. Give her very mild doses of nitrogen every third watering and try feeding her lightly with potassium and phorphorus every other watering.

Lastly, make sure she has plenty of fresh air and a good sized pot. I would keep a sativa in nothing less than a 5 gallon pot.
