Comparative Grow: from Dutch Passion at The Vault

Alright, got everything on the outside of the hoop house done today! I'm trying to get a buddy over here to put up the plastic tonight. If not tonight, then in the morning. But anyway.,,, The Doorway To Parts Unknown!View attachment 4598314 I recycled our old kitchen screen door. And it's getting covered with heavy metal hardware cloth tomorrow.
The chicken wire has gaps near the top on the sides. My son noticed that and asked about the security of those gaps. So even though not many people could fit through there, I had a solution. I put 4.5 inch construction screws up through the bottom. Not even the skinniest of whacked out meth heads will get in there now. And if they try anyway they will bleed, trigger an alarm and get quite the shocking experience from the electrified wires.... Ohhhhh yeah, and then ther is our dogs Sophie and Charlie. She and he might take a chunk or three out of them too.
If it seems I'm focused on the lowest lifeforms on earth today, its because they just keep getting worse here. Some of them broke into one of my friends place the other day through an apartment hallway ceiling first, then through his kitchen ceiling. Sorry for the rant. But I am making sure I'm secure. I really want this plant to do the best she can. :bigjoint:
you really did a nice job on this plus REP sir

Well as stated earlier my first 2 fizzled out from seed. my third and last one I saved for my outdoor season pulled through. She's short, super tight nodes, and super dense buds. It looks like one big top. This was 2 weeks ago, she popped on 5/20. Auto cindy Jack.

So,,,, the other day, the boys and I were working and playing in the yard. It was hot as heck and I was moving soil and other things around. I was also wearing my Vault tshirt. So since its still white I took it off and left it on a lawn chair. Then it seems some rat bastard stole it (fence is still not finished, kitchen rebuild and keeping up with the kids). He even left his tshirt behind on a railroad tie that's set vertically in the ground. Erg! Not a fair trade!
Time to order a new shirt and...
ugh.... That asshat!
Have a Buddy coming to help with better pictures of the hoop house and wanted to wear it in the photos. The Passion Fruit plant is looking outstanding! I'll post more pics soon!

Ok, ok, ok.... I have been slacking with the updates. We here at Parts Unknown have been busy with remodeling the kitchen, the kids, dogs and taking care of an indoor grow for another friend with a medical card. Not to mention trying to find enough fencing (the nearest place that has enough of the fence panels is 168.3 miles away) to finish the job. But anyhizzle,,,, our Passion Fruit plant is now just freaking huge. I can't even get a good picture of her due to her massive size. The other plants and her have completely taken over the hoop house! So here she is this morning, from the front-20200810_095032.jpgand the back-20200810_095137.jpg And she has now started to show flowers. We had to stretch trellis netting from one side of the place to the other as it seemed almost impossible to apply it to each plant.
You may notice the white stuf in the first picture. Its diatomaceous earth. We have ants hauling aphids into the side beds by the truck load each night. And I dont want them thinking they can set up shop in the big plants. Just crazy how you can (by hand) kill every aphid you see and the next day there are a thousand more. I really hate those ants!

Yesterday morning I was out in the hoop house known as Parts Unknown! And put up a ladder in one of the three spots it will still fit and took a picture of the Passion Fruit plants canopy for everyone to see just how freakin' huge this lady has become... And now, without any further ado the The Passion Fruit Monster! 20200820_104238.jpg She is now well over ten feet wide!
And here are some of the bud sites starting out. 20200820_092317.jpg

Well everyone, shes officially touched the ceiling!!! That makes her ten feet tall! And is now twelve feet wide!!! Here's some pictures from just after dawn today. 20200903_154340.jpg20200905_064827.jpg20200905_072600.jpg
The budding is coming right along and stacking up nicely.
I am currently adding more fans to increase air circulation, because the canopy has filled just about every bit of space available in the hoop house known as, "Parts Unknown! ". I am so in love with this plant! She is truly massive and smells of happiness! Thanks again, to The Vault!

This lady is getting THICK!20200924_150504.jpg
Sorry for the picture quality. The sun was right in line with the shot. And here is a lower bud that's already as big around as a beer can.

And on a slightly different subject- I won a seed giveaway from The Vault too20200924_141217.jpg (some of you already know) and the package got here today! It was a ten pack of Fast Flowering THC, a really cool tshirt, some stickers and a package of Barneys papers.
That was super fast! You just gotta love these people! Thanks again to EVERYONE at The Vault! :bigjoint:

Back with an update from, "Parts Unknown".
I am currently sticking to my phone... As my Passion Fruit plant inches toward harvest time she has been packing on the weight. So much in fact that all of the branches were starting to lay down on one another. So we had to pull another trellis net over top of her again yesterday. I wanted to do it last week but the guy I wanted to help me was unavailable at the time... Yesterday he had the time and we got the net over the top. Since then I have been moving branches into the netting and have gotten covered in resin. So much so that I just walked through the house and got yelled at for stinking up the whole house. My lady came out to the garage and said I smelled like I've been doing dirty things with a couple of horny skunks... Now,,, that wasn't meant to be a compliment but I took it that way anyhow. Lol
So here she is. 20201006_125150.jpg
A lot of the older fans have faded to yellow and the buds are filling in and getting dense. 20201006_125050.jpgThey are now getting so covered in resin that parts of you will start sticking to other parts of you, just from looking at her. Gosh I love this plant! It is looking like harvest for her will be around Halloween or in the first couple of weeks in November.
I hope everyone is doing great! Good luck with harvest time friends! And thanks again to everybody at The Vault!

That is one impressive plant!! You won't be guessing the weight from her in 'how many grams' but 'how many pounds'. I don't envy you the trimming that is for sure!
I am halfway through my 2nd auto grow AFTER finishing the grow I did for this comp, and you still have weeks to go before the chop of yours. When you think of it like that the time scale is amazing. Looking back was it really December of last year when this comp started? How much has the world changed since then.
Well done. Loving these updates of yours.

Thank you, and,,,Yeah, it's been a weird one. I'd have to look back but I believe I signed up in December. And I germinated this seed on February 2nd. And since then, dealt with a plant attacking Kitty, floods, weirdos, building the hoop house known as, "Parts Unknown", heat issues, remodeling, home schooling and this damn virus, that's messing the whole world up, for everyone right now.

And some how, high as I can find myself sometimes, I've got to enjoy watching her get to this stage in the first year of legal medical growing in Illinois. By the way, her roommates arent any slouches either. I love growing! LOL!

I've also got to see everyone else's grows too. And that (this whole comparative grow) has been one of the things that has made the way things have become this year easier to deal with. It has been cool talking with and sharing this experience on here, with all of you.

I am looking forward to her harvest. But while it's a happy time (it always is!) I always feel a little bad. I get kind of attached to all of the plants I grow. So do the kids. At least we have more seeds to work with!
I'll be back soon with more updates! Love you cats! :weed: :peace:

Here's a bud shot from a lower branch. And I mean low. I have to lift it up to squeeze by the plant on the east side of "Parts Unknown".20201020_235446.jpg Still got a little while to go, in my opinion. But I'd say she's looking good. The aroma is getting really strong and smelling mighty tasty, with lots of fruitiness and notes of fuel. The pictures just don't do this girl justice. The colors and trichomes are just awesome! I am soooo looking forward to having this plant dried, cured and in my stash cellar collection.
I hope everyone who's been involved with this grow is doing well. And if you've still got plants going i hope they are getting to be monsters!
Good luck friends! And thanks again to everyone at The Vault! You all are awesome!
