Hey Charmilles,

I like how the topping has allowed the AK's to catch up vertically...I would still wager the Nl5Hz is gonna finish taller though...can't wait to see. Looks great man! Peace!

I think it was all AK-47.(not sure of the pots) They were put in the ground about Jun,1 but were in pots and 18 inches high before I planted them.
The two on the left were from the same mom. They were the only ones that didn't get bud rot!
This stuff is now my worst fear.
If I could just avoid this #%$@^& I would be happy.
Peace and regards,
Charmilles

Hi manivelle, Sorry the weather is not the normal for you this year.
That seems to be the new normal.
Since I grow in this location every year it is essential to regenerate the fertility of the soil. Approximately 50 sq feet I figure.
At least a month before planting I loosen the soil with my spade.
This is the time I do some general amending.
I get some nursery compost(3 cf),a bag of chicken manure(1 cu ft)some organic grow fertilizer( I use Rainbow mix,from earth juice) .
Some agricultural lime(2 cups). Blend well.
When I plant,I get some "Foxfarm planting mix" not the potting stuff.(no pearlite)
I use 1cu ft per plant and dig it in very well in the immediate area of each plant.
Since I planted I have only watered. No nutrients. As summer goes on I will give something to them.(I use my normal liquid Foxfarm nutients,about 5 gal for the area every other week. I water first,then pour in the nutrient solution by hand).
At the end of summer going into fall is time to think of what they need to get into a good flowering mode.
This year I will be trying to be proactive with the mold.
I have used a product called "Actinovate" as a soil drench.
As the season progresses into very early flower, I will do some spraying with the product.
Peace and regards,
Charmilles

If you had to guess. How much soil do you think each plant recieves? Or if you know how deep and how wide you dug it would be greatly appreciated.

I bet you get atleast 3# from that nl5hz.

Hi Longhorn,
The grow area is 11' x 4.5' x 2'dp. That is 50'sq x 2' deep=100cu'.

One gallon =231 cu inches.
One cubic foot =1728 cu inches
1728/231=7.48 gallon per cubic foot

100cu ft x 7.48=748 gallons/3plants=249gallons per plant


Unless I made a fundamental error that's 250 gallons a plant!
Peace and regards,
Charmilles

ps. I will update photos this weekend.
The AKs are pulling ahead.
The topped area of the 5hz is being outgrown by lower branches.
I might need some training yet.

Sounds like its going to be epic with that much room for the roots.

You can always top those branches too. I know I would. I would try to make it have like a 5 foot radius.

I will be keeping an eye on this, its good to see people actually growing on this forum. Your previous plants look very well grown. Cant wait to see how these turn out. Good luck keeping the mold in check.

With that many gallons I am going to up my guess to 5#

Its become apparent I need to split this vertical growth or I will need a ladder to maintain the top of this thing.
I got power lines up there too.
Think I might be able to double top it at least, for four top colas.
It's still going to be way tall.

I don't want to cut any lower than this because of the hollow stem.
Bugs and rot get in.
Peace and regards,

Hi Longhorn,
The plant can't be 4 feet wide or it crowds the AKs. I know I like the AKs,this is the first grow of the nl5hz.
If it is good and doesn't rot, it will be back.
As far as 5#,I haven't grown it. If it is like past AKs it might make about half that.
regards,Charmilles


Hello Joe King Park,
That is a nice reveg job.
I've heard it can be done,I have never tried it.
I root a cutting before flower if I want a copy.
As far as topping this nl5hz, I want it to end up at around 7 feet. The fence blocks much of the morning sun. The taller they get the more sun they get.

Here is today's look at the nl5hz(L) next to the middle AK.


Now a closer look at the top of the nl5hz to show the branching.



You can see the next lower set of branches are overreaching the center growth.
For now I'll watch and hope the middle growth accelerates.
Those branches are nice and flexible if training is needed.

Peace and regards,
Charmilles

Hi Charmilles,

You're making me drool, I grow outdoors but I sure wish I could grow (legally) in my back yard so I could nurture them with tender loving care. Looking good.

Greetings all,
Here is an updated photo of the nl5hz plant.



This is in the ground one month today.(June 28)
It's doing well and starting to fill in.

Here are the rest of them.
