In my recent post, I was in the process of determining whether or not my biggest, most successful plant was a male. As it turns out, it most definitely was, as in past tense, because the 7 foot tall monster of a Vampire plant has since been moved from the garden (last night).
The following is a video of my buddy and I (recorded by my girlfriend) taking down this cannabis Goliath in true Trailer Park Boys fashion. Make sure you watch the video until the end... a cut scene is included. I only wish I remembered to wear my Sunnyvale "Ricky" 420 Hockey jersey... was too busy and baked to remember - appropriate.
I have been stuck in the garden battling bugs, organic bug spray reactions, reactions to heat stress, accidental nutrient burn, removing yet another fully grown male plant, some strange disease I still have yet to identify that also happens to be getting better, and introducing natural enzymes with waterings - while also having to be careful not to water too much, because of the nute-lockout that occurred, but also not too little, because of 90+ degree weather for many strait days, and in turn heat stress. WOW, what a mouthful.
My point is that my time on here has been completely dedicated to cannabis gardening, and I am about to leave town for the weekend to finally do some other things I have to get done. This cloudy day that blessed our beloved space is saving my garden (8/7/2019) - I have not seen them this happy in over two weeks. They are finally starting to react normal, instead of burning and shedding leaves, new growth, and having tops that are acting like they are falling over towards a sun that is not there (heat stress), they are perked up, and look like they may even be healing.
I also took the time to clean up the two plants in the back of all the damaged and sickly leaves and sections. More enzymes are on the menu when I am out of town, and with 70-80 degrees weather approaching until I return, hopefully only one watering on Saturday or Sunday in necessary - if that. I want the soil to dry up all the way, as a measure of caution for root-system health.
