Cannabis chronicles #15, an update on the plants and clones.

in #cannabis2 years ago (edited)

Hello, and welcome to my page!

I was looking at the posts on my page today and realized that it's been over 2 weeks since I wrote an update for my cannabis chronicles. I hadn't really been thinking about it too much with all the other garden stuff going on, but then, there hasn't been anything much to write about for an update until now.
The plants have been continuing to grow like you would expect. Big Stinky has been doing well in the greenhouse since the last time I trimmed it and topped it. It's been putting on new growth from the side shoots where I took the tops off.

It seemed like it was drying out too fast, so I decided that I should put it in a bigger pot. I had a couple of pots that are larger than the ones that the plants are in, so I decided to put Big Stinky in that pot. I got a fresh bag of Happy Frog potting soil to use for the repotting. When I pulled the plant out of the old pot, I discovered that the plant was getting pretty rootbound, definitely time for a bigger pot. I discovered that the bigger pots that I have aren't enough bigger to be able to leave the plant in that pot for long, the root ball was almost as big as the new pot. Since I already had the plant out of the old pot, I finished repotting it in the slightly bigger pot. At least the slightly bigger pot is a couple of inches deeper, so I was able to get that much dirt under the roots of the plant. I guess I need to buy some bigger pots now. I thought about 5 gallon buckets, but that's not really much of an improvement either.
At least the plant doesn't seem to have suffered from repotting it.

As for the Blue Dream plant, I decided to bring it out to the greenhouse also. It just wasn't getting enough light from the setup that I had for it. It just wasn't growing in a normal shape, it was getting bunched up from growing toward the light fixture. I think it's doing better now that it has much better light exposure in the greenhouse.

You can see some of the uneven growth in this picture.

It's interesting how much darker green the leaves are on this plant than they are on the Cannatonic plant. Perhaps that's why they call it Blue Dream.

I started 2 clones of the Cannatonic plant a few weeks ago with the help of a local grower that I know. I wasn't sure how they would turn out, but they didn't die. They kind of looked like they weren't going to make it for a while, but they're still alive.

Both of these plants are in a double cup, the inner one is clear so that you can see the roots if the clone starts growing, and the outer one blocks the light from getting to the roots. I've been checking the plants every couple of days lately to see if there's any roots visible. When I checked today, one of the clones has visible roots now.

The little white lines are the roots, I didn't realize that the cups have a design on them until I took the pictures...

It won't be too long before I'll be able to plant that clone in dirt in a pot. I expect that the other clone will start showing roots also in the next few days. Then I'll have to figure out where to put them, the greenhouse is starting to get a bit crowded.

That's all I have for this cannabis chronicles update, thanks for stopping by to check it out!

damn amber start your own weed farm you could buy a lambo ...

Well, If I was allowed sell it in Michigan, that might just work. :-)

Hihi, yeh I was going to say "wheres a post on ya plants?!" but there it is! Green houses are the best because the sun cant be beaten by any lamp, ever 😁

Congrats with the clone! Your plant look great, you should just use a container instead of plant pots 😂

The greenhouse does seem to work really well for growing cannabis. :-)
One good thing, I have the plants behind the tomato plants so you can't see them from the street, but they still get full sun.
I just went to the hydroponics store and bought a 15 gallon pot for big stinky, I know it will be happier in that. That's the same size pot that I use for the tomato plants.

You got good sized pots there! Ive been trying out shopping baskets that drag on the floor, they are around the same size 😀 this years not been so good up here, we topped tall tress last year and now they grow busy and block the sun light on the land 😂

Edit.. I often tought to buy fake plastic tomatoes to hang on weed plants 😂😂😂

I actually needed to put the big plants in even bigger pots, did that today.

Blue dream tastes like blueberry candy or should. She will be much happier in the greenhouse, you might need to consider some staking or support for the plants. You have some good fans in there ?

Looks good though the bigger the pot the better and the least amount of transplants is also of course ideal.

Yummy blue dream i can taste it ! DJ Short genetics lineage, most fruity plants have a blueberry history 👍🏽

Actually, I don't have any fans in the greenhouse, I just leave all the doors open all summer and the breeze goes through. I would like to add a roof vent to the greenhouse that would open it's self when it gets up to about 90 degrees or so. I know that tomatoes and cannabis are both heat loving plants, so I don't worry too much about it unless it's a really hot day. Then I put my pedestal fan in the west doorway and blow air through the greenhouse.

Ive still not had the pleasure of bluedream!

Thank you! :-)

Whoa sick, looks like everyone’s plants are shooting up big time this season! Upvoted because it reminded me of my plants. I know we don’t get along on steemit, but a cool weed pic is a cool weed pic!

Eh, I try to get along with everyone. Thanks for the comment!

I probably just got you mixed up with someone else. No problem, thanks!
