Hey guys I just wanted to show you some pics of a recent harvest I had the pleasure of being a part of. I have been working with this caregiver for a while now and when he called to invite me to assist in the harvest I couldn’t pass it up.
This was his first grow, several hydroponic plants as well as soil grown plants. As you can see from the above picture, he had much better yields with the hydroponic system. All of his plants were started by seed, nothing special, just potpuri (a mixture of seeds from friends). The seeds came from miscellaneous bags so there is no real way to know what marijuana strain this was but from the size and such it looked like they were all Indica.
For the Hydro grow he used Advanced Nutrients – Sensi Grow and Bloom, Overdrive, and Voodoo Juice. This combination provided a very nice yield with strong growth. The plants were grown using a simple Ebb and Flow hydroponic system. Six plants were grown in the hydroponic system under a 400 Watt High Pressure Sodium light. The plants were harvested when about 50% of the trichomes had turned to an amber color. You can see more pics in the photo album.
The soil grow marijuana was grown using Botanicare Pure Blend – Pro Grow and Bloom, Bat Guano 2 part veg and flower, Cal-Magplus, and Thrive Alive B-1. These plants did not grow nearly as strong of buds as the hydro. Plants were somewhat small and the buds were not extremely large. The plants were grown under the same light as the hydro as well as a supplemental 150 Watt CFL lights. The plants were not directly under the HPS light and required the supplemental lighting.
Overall the harvest went great. All plants were harvested and hung to dry. We cant wait to test the harvest once dried. We will follow up with pics of the dried buds. Thanks for checking out our site. Let us know if you have any questions.
Take care and don’t forget to check out more pics in our photo album.
