First grow gg#4 🌱 🌿 🌳

It looks like you’re right on point with topping here soon! I think honestly you can top at any point here as far as I know, but I’m no expert. That looks like node #5 forming right? I tried to download the pic to zoom in, my counting might be off cuz it’s hard to see the bottom leaves!

I love the way GG#4 smells… I always describe it as a spicy mustardy skunky smell

It’s been officially 30 days and did it ever grow up fast :smile:
Been late in the posting but here is a few pics from today got the week 5 notification and took the time to clear out some wilting leaves that were not getting light and tuck and weave some other shoots so they can get some light and lift off will check back in a couple days to see how it recovered

Yup the girlfriend brought some plants inside and there’s all kinds of these flys everywhere notice a few inside the grobo most likely from me just checking the plant and then sneaking in they work wonders in my other potted plants so figure I’d give it a shot in grobo working so far :joy:

I’m dealing with that too right now. My wife replanted one of her houseplants and I think the soil had fungus gnats present or … who knows?

I set up fly traps around the infested plant and inside the Grobo.

I’ve been using Neem Oil for the past week and I think I’m combating the population pretty good. There’s less and less present every day. … … knock on wood. Plan B is getting rid of the plant altogether, wife has approved it… but I feel bad so I wanna try to fight em off. At first I was spraying mostly at the leaves but have been focusing more on the soil itself. The fly traps around the plant have a shit ton of them on it, and i have two fly traps outside the Grobo itself on the left and right sides and also some inside the Grobo.

So far I’ve only caught one of those buggers inside the Grobo in the past two days, and I’ve noticed considerably less around the infected plant in the past days.

Also, I’ve noticed that checking on the Grobo is usually when one will make it’s way in. They like to hide behind the walls of the Grobo and the crack on the ceiling of the Grobo between the walls too I’ve seen.

Also, if your cocopod is staying damp at all still I’d suggest moving it upwards from underneath carefully because the wet pod is what was attracting a lot of them in the first month of my grow. It took me 30 days to finally dry my pod out, and I did my first Transition water change and it rose my water up to high again and re-moistened the pod. Had a tiny problem for a day or two with a couple of those little buggers but it’s been better and better.

It’s been a bit but here is an update :joy:
I’m currently on day 9/14 in late veg was thinking I might add a week would love your opinion as it does seem like it will be ready for transition

Ps I took the wires down as i will be moving it up to try and keep the colas spaced as the way I did below worked ok definitely could be better :joy:

Looking healthy for sure but I would definitely extend one week and re-analyze. She appears to be a slow and steady girl
