Let's observe the sugaring process of a Zookies flower under CDM lamps

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

This is the final run of Zookies (was not thrilled with the end result) and I thought it would be a good specimen to use for a little fun and observe the advancement of trichomes. I will take pics of the same bud every other day or so. To help us, I notched one of the fan leaves and will position the notched leaf to be at the "6 o'clock" position.

 

Here, I am pointing to the bud we will track with the notched leaf circled.

 

Date flipped: 2/13

Days in flower: 23

Day 29, 3/14

 

Btw, CDM (Ceramic Discharge Metal-halide) and CMH (Ceramic Metal Halide) are different names for the samething. And has zero in common with MH (Metal Halide) bulbs.20200314_115339.jpg.8c5f945e83503cc03e1dff3af163b4a7.jpg

I'm setting all these in a timelapse program, when I get enough I'll make a .gif  :) Thanks for posting them.

That'll be a kick, I am anticipating a tad bit more sugar than the Purple Punch (now entering 8 weeks, 52 days--waiting to see some amber trichs, but so far all clear and milky, maybe 10 days or so).

Due to the sativa factor, I say Zookies will need 10-11+ weeks before she will begin strutting her stuff.

Day 52, 4/6

Zookies grow medium has been on a water only diet since day 40 (3/20). Today they receive half dose of bacteria/zyme (SCD BioAg) along with seaweed extract and mighty mo.

Day 54, 4/8

Plants are experiencing normal leaf yellowing and drop. I initially hoped to take these to 10 weeks, but I doubt that. In the words of Trumpy, "we'll see".

Btw, the lactic acid in BioAg can be obtained at an incredibley affordable cost from milk that has NOT been pasteurized. That said, 5 ml per gallon of BioAg works; I know, I've been employing the other alternative at 30 ml per gallon for more than a decade. 2nd best sometimes becomes the "only best".

Now the grow medium is on a water deficit: half of their normal 3/4 gallon.

And a group shot of a few Zookies against the wall. About a week from harvest so not going to try and support the heavy drooping buds. Do have nice leaf drop but no amber trichs.The newer group in the foreground are Cherry Cobbler.20200412_135720.jpg.24c01244e97ed9dbf101b49073579c36.jpg
