I think I had a Rainbow Kush stowaway in the RDWC this grow, opps. The buds on top and bottom are Mandarin Cookies V2 and the one in the middle is a Rainbow Kush, nothing but foxtails totally different smell. I dont think the bowl trimmer is going to work on that one but from what I have read they call those the "good" foxtails so we shall see and learn.
now im no stranger to foxtails but are you sure that is the good kind? everyone always talks about the good foxtails and says theres good foxtailing and bad foxtailing but what makes it good or bad? I believe certain strains are more susceptible to foxtailing than other strains.
from my notes it shows my banana kush wanted to foxtail and my recent OG Kush too!! also had it happen a bit with Tangie
The "good" ones look like these, the bad ones look like Charlie Browns Christmas Tree. From the pictures I have seen the bad ones are all pistils and no real bud. One thing I read said the plant stops building on the main flower and starts stacking on the foxtail so they kind of look like a glove with a little palm and long fingers. I had one plant in the back that looked like it was flipping me off.
The upside is they had almost no leaves to trim, but I will see how they smoke before I declare them good or bad. Worst case I will only grow Kush strains in the cooler weather and save the Haze's for summer grows.
thanks for responding. ive made some little tweeks to my current grow in 12/12. My brand of Calmag's NPK is 4-0-0 so im working to counter that by using magnesium sulphate instead of my normal calmag during flower. I think it would be great during veg. I know you need a just little N during flower but it seems like alot to me.
Mine was no doubt the heat and genetics, the Mandarin Cookies came out perfect as far as bag appeal goes. Both of them have a great smell and could end up my best grow so far, certainly my best RDWC grow.
Two things I did differently that may have helped is I let the plants sit dry until the wilted a little, that was less than an hour in veg and 6 hours at the last res change in flower. Then when I did each res change I ran the system with just the root nutes/supplement's for a day or two before adding the feed nutes. I did a hard core schwazzing on both plants too. The Mandarin Cookies loved it, not sure about the Rainbow Kush because I had not grown it before.
Another thing I learned is to pick a strain I like and grow it over and over again until I get it dialed in "perfectly".
