So it is getting to be that time and I am looking for some sage like advice from those far wiser than me.

Second year farmer. 250 sq ft vegetable garden in addition to the canna, so a lot of my knowledge comes from both food production and canna, however despite the knowledge, the experience needed to effectively apply it is lacking. I have some 2 year old Emerald Harvest that I inherited, and some Fox Farms trio that I keep on hand in case I need quick acting salts. This is my first real outdoor grow. Several plants and questions so I will break them up into separate posts. I am looking for any comments regarding things I can do better next time, or issues that I might not be seeing. Foliars have been light, but have consisted of Neem / Agsil / Aloe, and Spinosad in the form of Capt. Jacks. I hit them with MagSu once early on as well as some Potassium Carbonate when I had some PM in the vegetable garden. All my salt feedings were standardized and relatively low ppm, as I was running organics in the soil. Typically a ppm of 400-600 with RO water, ph kept between 5.5 and 7.0, but I varied it weekly to try to free up any locked nutrients. Thank you all in advance for any input and advice. Here goes.

1x Barney’s Farm Peyote Critical from seed. Grown inside for 2 months, then put out on September 2nd 2019. 9 week flowering. 13 gals Coot’s Mix. A mix of salts and organics (SP-85, Agsil 16h, Malted Barley, Kelp Meals, Alfalfa Meal, Guanos, Castings, Compost, Aloe, MagSu, Molasses, Bloom City Cal-Mag, and a little Fox Farms when she looked hungry)

1x Barneys Farm Peyote Critical cutting. Grown inside for 2 months, then put out on September 4th 2019. 9 week flowering. 3 gals recycled Coot’s Mix. A mix of salts and organics, weekly organics (guanos every 3 weeks only, everything else bubbled from 6-24 hours or top dressed every third week) and weekly with the salts. (SP-85, Agsil 16h, Malted Barley, Kelp Meals, Alfalfa Meal, Guanos, Castings, Compost, Aloe, MagSu, Molasses, Bloom City Cal-Mag, and a little Emerald Harvest 4 part when she looked hungry). I gave a buddy of mine a cutting and I kept this one, so we were competing for yields, so I hit this girl with everything I had, every time I showed any of the plants some love. I spotted a caterpillar on the cutting a few days ago, you can still see the droppings. I have been out every night with the uv flashlight, hunting, no others found.

CBD Crew Mango Haze
1x CBD Crew Mango Haze from seed. Grown inside for 2 months, then put out on May 20th 2019, 10-11 week flowering. A mix of salts and organics (SP-85, Agsil 16h, Malted Barley, Kelp Meals, Alfalfa Meal, Guanos, Castings, Compost, Aloe, MagSu, Molasses, Bloom City Cal-Mag, and a little Fox Farms when she looked hungry).

I know she needs structure and support, kind of just got away from me. I spent a lot of time early on splaying her out, but didnt expect her to get so tall. Several times she has looked hungry, and I have started heavy feedings. I suspect the nutrition in the soil is exhausted, she started swelling last week when I hit her with an 800pm feeding, I hit her again yesterday and she looks like shes responding favorably, I am jut not sure if she is too far gone, or too close to the finish to really stack. Trichromes look small, sparse, and thin.

4x CBD Crew Mango Haze from cutting. No clue what I did with these, I was just hanging on to the genetic, they eventually got to big, so I took fresh cuttings and put these outside. A mix of salts and organics, light on the organics for this plant, weekly with the salts. (SP-85, Agsil 16h, Malted Barley, Kelp Meals, Alfalfa Meal, Guanos, Castings, Compost, Aloe, MagSu, Molasses, Bloom City Cal-Mag, and a little Emerald Harvest 4 Part when she looked hungry). These look to be doing better than the larger Mango Haze. They are muuuch younger, much smaller, and in much smaller pots with much fresher virgin soil.

Doctor Seedsman 30:1
1x Doctor Seedsman 30:1 from seed. Grown inside for 2 months, then put out on September 2nd 2919, 9-10 week flowering. A mix of salts and organics (SP-85, Agsil 16h, Malted Barley, Kelp Meals, Alfalfa Meal, Guanos, Castings, Compost, Aloe, MagSu, Molasses, Bloom City Cal-Mag, and a little Fox Farms when she looked hungry) Both this one and my Peyote Critical could use more support, currently the 2 main kolas are tied to each other, to prevent them from splitting. Same goes for the Peyote Critical.

2x Unknown from cutting. These were genetics I was hanging on to, I culled these from the herd, but I forgot to label them. I think they are 30:1, but the bud structure and color looks like the Mango Haze. A mix of salts and organics, light on the organics for this plant, weekly with the salts. (SP-85, Agsil 16h, Malted Barley, Kelp Meals, Alfalfa Meal, Guanos, Castings, Compost, Aloe, MagSu, Molasses, Bloom City Cal-Mag, and a little Emerald Harvest 4 part when she looked hungry)
