Week two of my newest harvest started over this past weekend and so far the plants are looking healthy, vibrant and look ready to start some little buds forming. It's amazing but I could stare at this plants and pictures all day long and never grow tired of seeing what I have been able to grow and create.
In this image, if you look close enough, you can really see every detail; the pistils, the calyx forming and the stipules.
I can remember when I first started to grow cannabis and how confused I was with all the knowledge needed. From knowing what to look for at what stage to knowing and understanding how to mix the nutrients.
At one point in time, I had told my husband that a person needed to have a botany or chemical degree to get all the information in order.
What kind of degrees do I have?
Early Childhood Development and Journalism.
Both of which really wouldn't assist me with this type of career.
I never cared for science class in high school. It was boring to me. Sure I got A's on all the assignments, lab experiments and other class related things, but it just wasn't my cup of tea.
I'm working on a post for later today about what degrees are the best for the cannabis industry, so keep an eye out. Pretty interesting!
Now that the flowering plants have settled into their new grow tent and the dirt has settled, I can compact the dirt in the 5-gallon buckets and add more to the top.
This may seem to be an odd ritual for some, but I like to let the plants and coco coir with perlite soil settle in before I compress it and fill the buckets to the top. Not sure why... aside from being able to tend to the plants even more than I already do. I like to keep strict diaries and journals of the daily growth, any changes and all statistics of every plant from every grow. Yeah... OCD is me!
