BOO getting ready to flower in SoCal
View attachment 4950645View attachment 4950646
This plant benefits from being thinned out and pruned, tries to make a lot of bud sites and the leaves tend to grow into one another with long petioles, plus they're pretty large.

Those are really nice. I wish I had read your advice as soon as I put my two BOO outside. One is way more indica dominant and I didn't trim any of the giant water/guard leaves up top and all my secondary growth is really slow. I finally got out the snips and in just a week the growth spurt was encouraging.
I'm just hoping to still see some decent growth out of the lowers as it's just starting to flower. I don't have any idea what the stretch is like, if any. This is my first outdoor grow so I'm just trying to keep it on the rails. Do you expect to see any stretch during the first few weeks of flower or should I just go ahead and clear out that lower growth?
Indoors it would never have been there but outside the growth is so fast I figured it might be worth saving if it was going to stretch at all. Thanks for any advice you can offer.

Nice plants! Yeah you did a good thing, they'll be more light and air penetration, it should encourage more bud growth. My BOO looks similar to your first plant, same overlapping 9 finger leaves.... has a moderate stretch, nothing crazy.
Once the clusters started to form she exploded and is making fat ol' flowers in a hurry.

I just didn't want to take any leaves since it's my first time outdoors but after two weeks I could really see how much the lowers were stunted compared to the other Pheno and not even close to the Blue Dream I'm growing alongside it. Thanks for showing yours and the great advice.

I saw someone mentioned 12 weeks for blueberries and oranges, does anyone have any other grow info? Stretch amount, finicky grow or easy, trainable, etc.. whatever feedback is welcome. Going to be my first of many useful runs and have a bunch of new elements to my setup this round so trying to be as prepared as I can be

Couple packs from 2019 I believe. Are the blueberries and chocolates fems? I'm pretty sure the BOO's are regs?? The boos all cracked fine but starting growing all kinds of wonky. Looks like 2 outta the 3 are working their way out of it. Even the 3rd worst one is starting to come around. The boo seeds are wild looking. I think I recall having problems getting these to crack when i first bought them. I never got one to the finish line. I'd love to have some orange terps.

And one more BOO pheno on the left next to a baddawg freebie ( white skunk x?)

All about to be pollinated by a stout Bodhi Dragon Fruit male. I was not expecting pollen so soon ( starting to drop now) i was hoping my boos and blue/choc would get a little larger. I put them outside about 2-3 weeks ago.

Apologies for the non useful plants. Kind of the same family though:D

Have boo and choco tranq next to each other. flipped 7/25 the choco are like 100% ahead of the BOO with yield as in small buds vs barely hairs. Has anyone with BOO grown out experienced low yield? The plants were a little smaller but the tranq are exploding now almost 2x size. The tranq choco is really nuts even the seed was nutty sprouted 3 inches second day wet.

I’ve got Chocolate Diesels and Lucky Limes outdoors in the ground that are now flowering. It’s been pretty hot this year in Bakersfield. All six of my plants have these things growing on them and I don’t remember seeing these on last year’s plants. Hopefully I’m just being paranoid, but do I have a bunch of hermie plants growing?

what’s good fellas, first post here, just wanna say I’ve appreciated all the insight I’ve gleaned by lurking here. I’ve got two chem 4 x choc diesels going for a first grow, and they’re at 8 weeks. Couldn’t have made more mistakes as a first timer; from ph and lockout issues to overcrowding my tent, I definitely messed up a bunch, but these plants are resilient.

Anyone have any idea how long these generally run? I’ve just been giving her plain water for the last 8 days or so, and her leaves have yellowed rapidly in that time. Having difficulty gauging the trichs. Sorry for the crap pics, and any insight is genuinely appreciated!

Has the plant slowed down it's drinking significantly? It clearly has faded fan leaf color.

This is a better way to tell when a CULTIVAR is done. Trichromes tell YOU when to cut. White trichromes are my favorite over amber trichs IMO. I like more sativa/energy highs. Also amber trichs mean you have lost thc as it has converted into other cannabinoids which make u sleepy. It's all personal preference.

This amateur grower's chocolate diesel (s1 by Useful) which did not succumb to bud rot like it's romulan neighbor.

So looking pretty yellow for having about 25 days to go, what would yall with more experience say I did wrong? Under feeding in veg? Any thing I can do now to best salvage it? Embarrassing results I know but I'm holding some hope for some good smokes out of it. 16291154281168854461279942162121.jpg
