2019 Outdoor Season - Grow Log #9 [Clone Trading / Garden Opening 'I THINK']

13 days ago

One of the coolest things about knowing
other local growers is the fact we get to
trade strains here and there. This year I
met a new acquaintance whom also
happens to grow.

     He green thumbs Snow White, seeds from the Nirvana Seed Shop in Amsterdam. A fabulous looking strain to which he personally has never seen one outdoors. Until now...

     I have traded him four of my JCExtreme Noname clones for two of his Snow Whites. Little beauties are his gals, unbelievable really. He truly knows how to prune up and baby his cannabis. I traded four, for the simple fact I am unsure of the sex of my plants as they came from seed. The plan is to introduce one of each of the clones to 12 / 12 light once its roots have taken. This will tell us the sex within a couple weeks. He will then still have potentially two clones left to work with as he pleases.

     We'll from now on refer to her as SW#1, definitely feminine, I had the chance to smoke a bud from a sister plant, sock knocker. One or two, or it's out for you... Well done! I'll be doing #ACloserLook post on some of his bud soon. Nice n frosty, semi dense nugs from an indoor operation.

     This can now be known as SW#2. I am supper excited to bring these into my garden! This makes three strains this year. Two JCExtreme Nonames, one Vanilla Kush, and now two Snow Whites. The blend just sounds extraordinary.

     With all the crazy weather we have been having lately it has just been a kick in the face, and a strain on my crop. I had to pull the plants back into the grow box from outside as the temps dropped bellow 40° F. Once again the temps may dip down into the thirties tonight so I am really thinking I'll be bringing my plants back inside for at least one more night. Unfortunate, but I really want to ensure these plants survive.

     Did someone say it was May? Feels more like the beginning of March. I heard a guy at work the other day say, "The calendars broken!" I couldn't agree more. This is another reasoning behind why I wanted to keep my plants mobile. It allows for me to combat these extreme weather conditions. Granted, once the plants grow up into my screen I won't be moving them, but at that point they should be stout enough to cope.

     Right now though I have four of the five plants outdoors. The Vanilla Kush still has yet to see the light of day other than the artificial light I have been providing. Her(fingers crossed) time is near. Most likely I will take her outside for a couple hours tomorrow. I really don't want to shock this one at all. She's a beauty as I keep saying. The nodes are so tight, my buddy even commented on the tightness of the branch structure, and that's with the artificial lighting. God knows what'll happen under the sun.

     Here's what JC#2 is looking like these days. Starting to really bush out now. It's still so early in our grow season, these plants have a great head start!

     JC#1 isn't looking too shabby. You can definitely see the lack of proper lighting in the structure of both the JC plants. This is due to not being able to get them outside in time, the moving of them in and out of the lighting differences. In retrospect, I planted 2 weeks too early this year due to weather phenomenon. It happens.

     My garden is a special place to me as are the crops it holds. I really hope the weather gets nicer so I can actually get into the garden. I was able to turn the soil and clear some weeds from the main bed of the cannabis. I also restrung the netting above the plants to make it look less thrown together and more intentional. I was actually able to cut the netting in half, neatly doubling the coverage I can get. Although I think I will still be a bit crowded, I think I can make due with this space for five plants that aren't rooted into the earth. In no way do I expect to see anywhere close to the 1/2 LB from 1 plant, grown in the 5 gal pail. I just envision my last years plant's root system. No way it fits into the bucket. The tap root alone exceeded the buckets capacity.

     So that's what has been happening in Wisconsin at this all so small grow. I will be putting a small post up on the cloning of the JCExtreme plants in the next couple days, as well as the Snow White #ACloserLook. I look forward to your comments, questions, concerns. Remember, you only know what you know...Keep Growing because we all know Smoke, Grow, Repeat!

White widow, Northern Lights.

These are some really very healthy and good looking strains and yes, exchange of strains is always good. Gives you more options and different tastes.

wow Very incredible the whole process, looks good :)

Thank you. It was rather easy to set this up, and very cheap.

I understand, one day I'll try, it's exciting to see the process :)

Until that day, learn all you can from the great folks here on smoke. There are some really intelligent gardeners on this platform. I've learned a bunch already myself.

@thecodelion, I still need to shade my rooting buckets! [In The Works!]

One tip that user had mentioned in my last outdoor post.

Anyways, Learn what you can, build confidence as you'll see how easy it is to grow this plant. It gets more challenging to grow this plant to its fullest potential. Then plant your seeds, or grab yourself some clones. I'd venture to say, you're not the only one that would be growing in your area. I'm sure there is a local cannabis network to be apart of around your parts.
