Since most of this boards threads are short and uninteresting "whats wrong with my weed?" /threads, I'd like to start one where we just post about setup, development and stages of our cannabis grows.
I personally have never grown weed before (and smoked it only once lol), so out of curiosity I planted a seed of textile/food hemp from a seed packet I got at a supermarket. I'll use it as a "test run" of trimming and training methods before I order expensive "mariujana" seeds. And since hemp supposedly gets up to 4m tall, I'll have to trim it anyway. Fingers crossed that it's a girl. Pic related is my plant a few days after germination.

This pic is from today (5 days after the first one). My pot grows in a pot on my balcony. I'm really curious whether "industrial" hemp like mine will develop large and frosty buds like "weed" along with the characteristic smell, maybe some of you can clue me in on that. Also, do you guys know if any weed-seedbank has ever used industrial hemp to breed a new strain? After all, hemp practically grows by itself and flowers at about the end of September, so it should be a perfect candidate for creating a hardy european outdoor strain, apart from its low thc level ofc.

Yeah. once more leafs grow they'll fall off and the newer ones will take over the photosynthesis process. This is actually my first grow (indoor) as well, supposedly is some green crack.

This is going to sound dumb but can you really grow hemp seeds and end up with buds? Seems like a GIANT loophole in legality. A loophole I'd like to swoop through.

Well, if you get a female hemp plant, it will develop flowers (hemp is just cannabis sativa with low thc), but I don't know whether they will be in large "buds". That's what I'm trying to find out with this grow. Even if, those buds will only contain <1% THC so it's not worth it if you want to get high.
>Seems like a GIANT loophole in legality.
Growing hemp without a licence is still illegal where I live. Even if you are a farmer and get the licence, you may only grow your hemp for its stalks and seeds, selling hemp "CBD-buds" is also illegal. I don't know if that is the case where you live though. Just remember that nobody can tell the difference between "hemp" and "weed", especially not the police

A little update after easter
Barnaby Pullerfudge - Tue, 23 Apr 2019 19:52:04 EST uHoIBLKZ No.146594 Reply
I started a couple of seeds at the beginning of this month. One of them started out really twisty, all the leaves were twisting in different directions and the stem had a kink in it too. The other has a bunch of rust spots on the leaves. Luckily the newer growth seems okay though. I've been really fucking lazy about this whole thing. Basically my plan was to build a setup in some coolers and to use peltiers as a cheap way to cool the water but the cpu heatsink I bought wasn't big enough and I'm hoping that's why it didn't work because I wired one up to a water block and it wouldn't even remove the heat from the pump. I should have gone back and changed my design but I've just been doing nothing out of laziness. Now I've got no where to put my plants. I think I'm just going to try and use a bucket. The insulation is no good because the air stones heat it up I think, without something to cool it it just traps the heat inside.

Another update. I think I slightly overwatered these last few weeks and flushed some nutrients out, as the tips of the lower leaves started turning brown. I added some fertilizer and water less frequently now

How early does weed start showing its sex? This is how the top of my plant looks. Those white hairs mean it's a girl right? Isn't a month after germination a little early for that?

It's already flowering, must have some autoflowering genetics. Since this is probably a hemp-strain meant for seedproduction I would expect reasonable flowerproduction

Your plant appears to be 'clawing' because of an excess of Nitrogen

I might snip some pics of my outdoor autoflower grow later this week.

I planted an edible hemp seed from the supermarket. They where grown in my country (according to the packaging) so there should be enough light. I get 15 hours of light a day, so I think that >>146619 is probably right and it has some autoflowering genetics.

Fimming and topping is done before flowering, I would just let it run it's course. If you want to lower it's profile you can try bending and tying it though.

I literally forgot I had planted these. I planted them april 1st in a DWC system and didn't do anything to them at all until just a few days ago. Only had 1/3rd of my lights on too. Gorilla quake on the left. FloStar on the right. The gorilla quake is really impressive. Growing strong and fast and already stanks real good.

As you can see I gave my girl nitrogen toxicity after I overwatered her the last weeks :). I "flushed" the soil and will just leave her alone for a while before I do any more damage. Still hoping for some decent sized buds. If you lean in close she smells a little like cheese lol

They've recovered from the late topping I gave them so I switched on another light plus my UV bulbs and I switched to 13/11 and put my infrared light to go on ten minutes before lights out and to stay on for 10 minutes after they go out. I haven't tried using it this way before, I'll be interested to see if it starts to flower. I'm not sure if there's something wrong with the flostar or if it's just the genetics but it's still like half the size of the gorilla quake. The gorilla quake is smelling fucking loud already even before the switch. I'm so fucking excited for it now. It was great smoke from what I remember and I found just a single giant seed. It was like the most perfect seed I ever saw, I even saved the seed case just because it was so big and beautiful. I hope my neglect doesn't kill these things. I have still only changed the water once and I haven't been adding more fresh water either like I should. Hopefully when it starts growing flowers I'll be less lazy. It's going to start needing a ton more water since I switched on more lights and dropped them.

When do you guys clean up the bottom half of the plant?

I changed the water again today for the gorilla quake. Gonna change the flostar tomorrow because I need to let the water sit overnight to release the chlorine. Now that all my lights are on growth has really improved.

I've just been using a pump that I keep sitting in the res to pump the water out for a res change but it was really slow in starting today and I'm worried it's going to get clogged.

Looking good! How long are you going to wait before you flip them to 12/12? I think that if you flip them soon they will be able to nicely cover the shown area.

I've heard that with a little far red light soon after lights out you can make it flower with only 11 hours of dark, so I'm going to leave it on 13/11 for 2 weeks and see if it has flowered by then. I switched it to 13/11 last sunday. If it hasn't flowered by the sunday after next I'll switch to 12/12. It seems like it's reacting as though I switched to 12/12 though, big boost in growth and it seems like its getting ever smellier so I have high hopes for it flowering.

Guys, my girl is looking really bad, my over-fertilizing really shows despite my attemps to flush the soil. To make matters worse, she was completely rushed by aphids last week, which I sprayed away with water as much as I could. I removed the really bad leaves and hope that she gets a little better. Fingers crossed.

Take a pair of binoculars and spin them around backwards and look at your bud through them. You should be able to see the individual trichomes. Harvest when most of the trichomes are either milky or amber colored. It's usually a minimum of 7 weeks since the first pistils sprouted. No idea with hemp though.

Good news everyone! I spotted my first pistils sprouting up yesterday. Here's a shot where you can see my setup. It's just a couple of water coolers with some air stones in them. The middle light is some no name unit from china I got for $50 on ebay. The other two are mars hydro 300's. I'm using two reptile UVB bulbs on either side of the middle light and the far red flower initiator puck is attached to the middle light. The flower initiator puck seems to have worked quite well, only 10 days of 13/11 and it's showing pistils already.

Update. They've almost tripled in size since I switched the lights two and a half weeks ago. I've had to raise the lights like 2 inches every day. The gorilla quake has been building buds like no one's business but the flo x stardawg has only put out a few pistils. I did have the far red light more over to the left for a little while before I moved it to the center so maybe that's why. I hope they stop growing soon, I can only raise the lights another few inches.

another update: The lights are now raised to maximum level. Thankfully the gorilla quake seems to finally have slowed down on the vertical growth but the flostar is still going. It's almost as tall as the gorilla quake now. My last resort is to lower the plants which I have on blocks to make it easier to drain if the power goes out. Some of the upper fan leaves on the gorilla quake are turning brown on the edges and tips of the leaves. Not sure if it's nutrient burn or potassium deficiency. It also could be light burn since I got them pretty close to the lights, but I think it's probably nute burn so I drained some of the res and put in some fresh water. If it's a potassium deficiency what I did will just make things worse, but if it's nute burn it should make it better, or at least stop it because the damage never really gets better. It started on the edges of the leaves which was weird so I think it may be potassium deficiency. We'll see if it gets better or worse now.

Well, it seems to have gotten worse today, I think it may be potassium deficiency after all. Here's a picture of the area most affected. You can see some of the leaves have only the tips affected, others have only the sides affected and the tips are fine. Bottom and middle growth is unaffected, only stuff around the biggest tops.
I think it can sometimes start near the top, but it always starts with older growth which is what was affected here. Potassium is mobile and needed for building buds so it makes sense that it would be coming from the big leaves nearest to the biggest budsites that are affected. The plant could be pulling the potassium from the leaves to put in the buds. I think tomorrow I'm going to try and change my water and put in a flowering concentration. I was still on the 1:1:1 "transition to bloom" feeding schedule because normally that takes at least three weeks but the gorilla quake is going like crazy. As far as I know it's a 50/50 hybrid with cheese quake and GG#4 as parents and the flo x stardawg is a sativa dominant hybrid so I'm not surprised it's lagging behind a little but still growing, it's just surprising that the gorilla quake was that fast.

Any input from experienced growers on the damage? Could it be potassium?

The flo x stardawg has continued to grow over an inch per day in height so I removed some of the blocks and dropped it down about 4 inches so it's a little below the gorilla quake. The tops of the gorilla quake is about 7-8 inches from the light which is closer than the 12 inch minimum distance recommended by the manufacturer. I think next week when I change the water I'll drop them both.

The flostar is still stretching lol, it's taller than me now, just look at these lanky motherfuckers. I'm gonna have to drop the flostar to the lowest level soon. They're growing these pathetic ghost buds all the way at the bottom that get zero light. I normally cut these off but I'm doing an experiment this time to see how it goes without doing any pruning other than a single top and pulling off what dies naturally. So far so good. I'll probably have tons of shitty popcorn that I can use to make bubble hash or edibles.

And here's the flostar. Both are starting to smell sweet, but the flostar has a more complex scent, definitely reminiscent of flo which I just grew last time. I love the smell of flo when it's growing, it's almost like grape cotton candy or something.
Fucking Panningbetch - Fri, 05 Jul 2019 17:59:35 EST ef1tcmWF No.146804 Reply
There's also a minty pine scent besides the cotton candy sweetness in the flostar. One patch of leaves today near some buds looked wet so I touched it and my hand came away smelling strongly of mint with hints of pine. The mint is nice but honestly I could do without the pine. It is also present in the flo and is the least favorite part of the flavor of flo for me. Still not bad overall though. So far this is smelling very similar to flo. Not sure what the stardawg is bringing to the scent profile yet.

Update. Both plants have been having a lot of lower leaves shrivel up and die. I thought nothing of it because this normally happens, but it's been spreading way farther than normal. I think it's a phosphorous deficiency. I was away for a week and the plants didn't get watered. When I got back I saw my far red flower initiator puck had fallen off from where I attached it to. I also lost power sometime while I was away but I don't know for how long. Overall the plants look okay, the gorilla quake looks like it has barely grown at all and the dead leaves are going all the way up to the top now. I'm going to try and give it a little more phosphorous and hope it pulls through.

I now have a teeny tiny guardian spider bro watching over my weed. He made a tiny web between one of my colas and the light. I'm in week 7. Buds are fattening up. Flostar's hairs are turning color now but about a week behind the gorilla quake. Looking like harvest should be around the first of August for the gorilla and maybe a week later for the flostar. That's pretty much the worst time imo to harvest around here because it's so hot and humid, but whatever, this was a speed grow because I'm addicted to weed but I'm also poor and I can't keep spending so much money at the weed store. My last grow I finished the tops from the one plant that made it recently that was good smoke (the flo). The other plant died before it could finish, the potency is there but the taste is off and I don't want to smoke it. Please let this shit turn out good so I can stop spending so much money at the dispensary.

I removed a few of the colas that were rotting and threw them in the trash. What a shame. Everything else appears okay although I don't know whether it is for sure or not without pulling it all apart. I guess I'm just going to let everything that looks okay keep growing for now and hope for the best. Anything that's moldy at harvest I'll just throw away. The good news is that the flo x stardawg seems unaffected. The gorilla quake is smelling like ripe honeysuckle and the flostar has completely changed from what it was earlier in the grow and now smells like straight up lemons. I love how the scents in weed change from start to finish.
