Update: I went away for 4 days and they exploded. So I decided to trim up the bottoms and take some clones. Transplanting in 2 days to 7 gal pots then it's soon flowering time! What do you guys think about flipping in a few days? First 2 pics are before trimming.

Weekly update: Started flowering my girls today! I turned the geekbeast up to 75% and will keep slowly increasing until 100% within the next few weeks. They seem to be loving all the light and the bigger pots. I can't wait to see how they turn out!

I've actually never heard of nectar of the gods before, I'll have to check it out. Is it all organic? So far CK has been really easy to grow, I've never grown organically and I'm loving not mixing up nutes all the time. Since this is my first grow in a long time I set my bar pretty low, anything over 6oz and I will be a happy guy! Thanks for following along, and keep me updated when you get ur CK going!

Update: Some of the clones had roots so they went into solo cups with leftover veg mixed soil. I was battling cold Temps until my heat pad came in. Seemed to help. Still need a few more and the clone I just took to root and the veg tent will be in business! I forgot how much fun is it to grow:weed:

Update: 1 week into flower, I increased the light to 90%. It's really obvious the 3 I thought were more sativa definitely are. I'm really happy with my decision to use dr. Earth. Except for some yellowing in the beginning due to me not watering the right way it's been smooth sailing.

Happy 420 from my garden to yours!

Coconut Water As Organic Cannabis Fertiliser



Using Coconut Water As Organic Cannabis Fertiliser
Coconut water is an all-natural cannabis growth accelerator for organic and hydroponic growing systems. It boosts clone development, enhances root growth from seeds, and boosts overall plant vigour. If you want an organic solution for bigger marijuana plants, coconut water is for you.
COCONUT WATER FOR EPIC CANNABIS GROWTH
You might be surprised to know that not only is coconut water good for your health, it is also good for the health of cannabis plants. It is rich in vitamins and minerals, natural sugars and amino acids, and in particular, cytokinins. Interestingly, if you are injured and lost in the tropics, coconut water can be used as a replacement for a blood plasma drip. This was done often during WW2 and kept many soldiers alive in the absence of actual plasma. Although, why you would be lost in the tropics with an intravenous drip kit is anybody's guess.
Coconut water is a favourite thirst quencher and natural tonic in the tropics. It satisfies thirst better than water and gives a boost to the body with its broad spectrum of beneficial constituents. Expecting mothers are encouraged to drink coconut water and athletes swear by its long-lasting hydrating properties. The same impressive array of beneficial characteristics also benefits the marijuana plant.
WHAT IS COCONUT WATER?
WHAT IS COCONUT WATER cannabis

Not to be confused with coconut milk or cream (which is wrung from the meat of the coconut), coconut water is the fluid that is held within the hollow of the nut or endosperm. When a healthy coconut is cracked open with a machete, the ensuing gush is coconut water. It is comprised mainly of water (96%), with the rest being natural sugar, proteins, amino acids, good carbohydrates, vitamins, minerals, fats, fatty acids, and fibre. Coconut water not only quenches the thirst and gives the body a substantial dose of its daily requirements, it suppresses hunger and aids digestion, lowers cholesterol, is an antioxidant, and a mighty fine hangover cure.
Cannabis benefits from coconut water for the very same reasons, with the added benefit of being entirely organic. Like all seeds, the coconut has everything a young plant needs to get established. It feeds young palms until roots form to take up nutrients and leaves form to begin transpiration. Coconut water can replace a number of secret grow formulas created in labs. Adding as little as 15ml per litre of water will cause vigorous growth in marijuana. Plants will display taller growth with less spacing between nodes and more bud sites. The rich formula means checking EC prior to adding standard nutes, so as not to overfeed.
CYTOKININS (ZEATIN)
Cytokinins (Zeatin) Cannabis

Cytokinins are enzymes which signal the root cells to divide and develop more roots (cytokinesis). This is essential for coconut palms as rapid root development means quicker uptake of water and nutrients in uncompromising environments. The tropics are great for getting a tan, but the heat can be taxing on young plants. The sooner water and nutrients are synthesised by the growing plant, the better.
In cannabis, the cytokinins promote similar rapid cell division and root growth. A healthy and large rhizosphere means more nutrients and water are available to the growing plants. Cytokinins also signal cell division and rapid growth of new shoots in the plant above ground, and accelerate growth of lateral shoots. They also stimulate leaf expansion and promote larger leaf stomata. Combining these features means explosive growth in the marijuana plant. Cannabis is a fast-growing annual by nature; adding coconut water to the process means growth is set to overdrive.
This is genius

Yeah I definitely agree with that! Keep me updated on how it works out for you.. My cheap ass don't like paying a ton of money for it or I'd be using it more often lol.

Naw it's a lil pricey. I'd assume If you bought it in bulk it'd be worth it. I was just buying it from my work but I see online it's alot cheaper, probably gonna go that route myself.
Edit: Best price I found so far https://www.walmart.com/ip/Vita-Coco-Coconut-Water-Pure-33-8-fl-oz-Tetra/34789040?wmlspartner=wlpa&selectedSellerId=0
I saw the 4 bucks and I just knew it had to be for a gallon but shoot this stuff must really be the truth you probably can get by just using Few ounces every now and then

I've been mixing a litre in with every 3 gal. I suppose you can probably use less. I wonder if it's more beneficial to give em more at once or maybe add a little to every watering. Once I get to the point where I'm done pheno hunting and have all the same one growing I'll have to do a comparison.

Yup that’s the only way to find out then everybody would have to ask you for advice
