    dude i am sorta stoked waiting on some lower buds sites i chopped to give it a test but if she smokes anything like she smells its going to be killer just by handling them you have the hash smell on your hands very sweet smell with some pine after tones kinda of a mixture of pine and cherry note second bud on right drying up nicely its got the purple freckles with a fluorescent green look with the reds from the hairs .. It really going to have a nice bag appeal i might pending on high will start possibly slow harvest starting late next week 20 - 30 buds daily but will see
    its light rain off and on and cold again today as for plant shes still amazingly healthy with some natural fad starting at bottom so
    One thing for sure i am super happy with my simple soil mixture it took this plant 5 + months with out any nutrients and only rainwater IMG2708.jpg IMG2704.jpg

    PS I never lollipoped or cleaned under which would of made buds allot bigger but also with shitty sunlight and weather she had in her flowering stage shes doing ok could of been alot better if i had good weather and sunlight she pretty much has had if i am lucky 2 weeks of good weather meaning sunlight rest has been over cast , cold and rain

    I love outdoor buds.. The sun and the breeze just does something for MJ that indoor can't do.

    Azomite should give you zinc.. I mix in Azomite at planting at the rate of 1/4 cup per gal of soil.

    I JUST increased the amount I give.. I previosuly was using 1/8 cup per G. I decided to up it by recommendation from a friend who uses at 1/4 c per G soil AND feeds via a solution at wk 3 and 6 of flowering.

    Find a 40 lb bag locally. Save some money and stock up.

    If you can't find azomite there is a product out there called Minerals Plus by Soil Mender and others. That probably has zinc in it too.

    Id also like to hear your guys thoughts on ammoniacal Nitrogen versus other forms of nitrogen, i overheard a gardener saying one can be better than another for plants.

    Yes.. Higher in fact.. I use Alpha Chemicals Potassium Sulfate (Organic Sulfate of Potash) 0-0-50

    I'm not using it to up the level of P.. rather I am using it to up the level of Sulfur.

    There are lots of things people add to MJ plants thinking it will make their plants more resinous. I actually feel very confident that adding Sulfur really works. UV supplement light too, but that is another matter.

    I use 40 G reservoirs.. Every other reservoir (last about 10-14 days) gets 1/8 tsp Potassium Sulfate per G. From seedling to harvest.

    A friend of mine who uses the same stuff does 1/4 tsp per gal, once per week.

    With that product you listed having lots of magnesium but no calcium I would worry about getting Cal/Mag ratio off without a little planning. Something to think about.

    ^ The only time I use super high P foods is when pushing flowers out of ornamentals.. Plumeria, bouganvillia, the real showy tropical flowers..
    I used to (years ago) do a PK 13/14 treatment around wk 3 and wk 5 flower with MJ.. but not anymore. Might play around with it in the future though.

    Verynice, i am in soils. Can tell you that it's always interesting seeing what kind of reaction i get from 15-20 in N-P-K. I enjoy learning from my mistakes.

    I've made every mistake you could make.. worst one I made this year? While treating for spider mites in a non organic garden I accidently 4x'd the spreader sticker/surfactant in my pesticide spray mix.. killed probably 60 plants over a 2 wk period. I was piiiiiissed.

    If you have not supplemented Sulfur before.. give it a try. I bet you'll like the results. I'de like to hear someone elses as well.. I'm never in denial about the fact that sometimes what you THINK you see is not what you are really seeing. So I'm always looking for others experience on the matter.

    Pretty confident about the Sulfur thing though..

    I sprouted some of the SSH x SM a while back.. I have several males and females. I hope to start flowering out the females in about 3 months.

    So, hoping for SSH x SM F2's by summer 2016.

    I know.. slow as fuck :lol:

    I wanna get the SSH x SM just right.. Would like to get an F4 male to use as my sativa hybrid stud. There is some 12+ week haze in the lineage.. I wanna get that out of there and emphasize the 9 wk ssh.

    At the same time I will be backcrossing the SSH x SM to the 9 wk SSH mama..

    Will this be fine? There is "sodium" in this nute and as far as I remember I just read that sodium is not good for cannabis.
    I'm kinda confused right now.

    Plants need sodium.
