Day 64 Transition 5/14 (pics from yesterday Day 63 during drain/fill)

Not much difference by way of pre-flowers, still little budlets. All are absent of their hairs so far, will keep posted!

Looking purty. She grew a little for sure! Not a ton of stretch so far…

What are your night time temps like in comparision to the day btw?

The temps don’t vary much in the house on this floor (3rd). Just between 69-80°F and the stretch has been minimal so far! We’ll see what happens after tonight :crossed_fingers:

She still has a few weeks left of stretch, I bet she will at the very least double in size…

If you can drop your night temps a bit that may induce some further stretching.

Okay I’ll see what I can do! There’s a fireplace in that room. Could be keeping it too cozy

Yeah take a look on Google about Postive DIF and Negative DIF, this is true with most plants as far as I know, not just Cannabis

Nfw now I need an A/C unit :sob::sob:

Edit: honestly I was originally gonna move my Grobo downstairs and then changed my mind when I got the humidifier but now I really think it’s a good idea

I knew I flipped my girl early, so I’ve been trying to leave the heat off during the day when she’s sleeping as much as possible while I was home the past two weeks, and then turning it up once she wakes up to try to create a bigger difference from night and day temps… Winter is a tough one though… Mine has been like 69F at the lowest and then 78F at the highest for the most part.

I basically just learned about DIF when I was entering towards flower though, so I didn’t pay much mind during veg to it… just wanted to try to do my best to induce a good amount of stretch so she didn’t stay super small

Obviously genetics and other grow conditions can determine stretch and height though, as well as when the flip happens of course

Wow that’s news to me but ofc that makes sense lol. I’m gonna have to dial it all in… I just had to do a bunch of work on my tent girls… PH was way too high so I flushed ~2.5gals/plant w/ 6.2pH water. :joy:

Not dumb just learning. I really ought to get to the books on this stuff… could make me a bunch a money some day

I felt like this today ^

What I do is just keep my VPD In range and for me I don’t care as much about how hot / Cold (with in reason of course).

If you master VPD your plants will love you for it

Ps your Grobo plants looks very happy :blush:

Thank you! I do my best to ride the VPD wave as accurately as I can! I love how hearty she is!

Day 67 Transition (8/14)
So after one week in transition not much has changed… I feel as though an extended dark period post-veg & pre-flower (36hr) would assist in expediting the transition/stretch process but maybe that’s just my opinion. She’s certainly very happy…

Well, I think it’s a boy.

Thoughts? I guess I’ll germinate another seed… wow I’m rather upset with myself

It definitely is :[

Sorry to see that …

Ugh. I’ll go germinate a seed…

Damn man, that really sucks… Was it a feminized seed you were working with???

No. The seeds I ordered with my Grobo didn’t come in until last week. Ordered my Grobo in July.

At least I learned something. It’s my own fault

The response I expect when I tell my fam:
