Backyard Cannabis Farming 2019 - Episode 11: Bamboo Branch Support, Blocking Light Leaks, Switch to Bloom Nutrients, & Beginnings of Greenhouse Construction

in #dtube2 years ago (edited)

In this episode, I go over the timing of my switch from veg ("grow") nutrients to bloom (flower) nutrients. I also demonstrate how I installed structural bamboo and ties to assist with branch support in anticipation of developing flowers, and extra weight along with it.

Have you ever seen leaves grow like this??

I also show my fabricated system for blocking a light leak coming into my garden from a nearby neighbor's house. This is essential so that your plants can sleep, and do not get confused into thinking that it is still veg time. Extended light leaks during flower can also lead to your plants becoming too stressed, and morphing into hermaphrodites ("herming out"), which will cause them to develop the oh-so dreaded undesired seeds.

I conclude by showing the beginning stages of my makeshift greenhouse construction, the purpose of which is to provide rain protection for the flowering plants, as moisture will soon set in late next month (September).

I also wanted to note that when I unearthed the root ball after taking down that gargantuan 7 ft. tall Vampire plant, there was absolutely no signs of even the beginning stages of root rot (Pythium). Seeing these healthy roots was quite a relief from worry about the rest of the garden, as it seems the nute burn/lockout did not spur this dreaded plant disease.

Nothing better than bamboo for staking and providing structural support. Really appreciating the in-depth nature of this series @elamental - helpful to many, I'm sure.

Thanks for suggesting to use those additional tags, very helpful tip to use through steempeak.

your plants look great so green and lush, looking forward to seeing the greenhouses take shape as well x

Thank you, I am definitely proud of how I nursed them back to livelihood again after a few weeks of thinking I may loose them all. What a relief (so far haha). The greenhouse will likely look a little ghetto, just hopefully not too ghetto is my goal :-) Bless up sista!

That's quite the nice batch of plants you have growing there!
I'm not able to grow plants outside in Michigan due to the laws in place, so the best that I can do is to grow them in my greenhouse. I feel like that's at least better than growing them indoors.
