6 months of hard work finally starting to pay off

  1. the last 6 months for me have been very exciting and also very difficult, when i thought about 'growing weed' i thought how hard can it be? as alot of people probably think, its only when u start to grow u relise theres alot more to it than just stickin a seed in a pot and watering it.
    i started my grow in march of this year with high hopes (no pun intended), id had alot of seeds from bag weed and thought i would plant them all(20ish) this is where i met my 1st problem, alot of them didnt germinate.. but with around 10 germinated seeds i planted them outside in pots.. i waited days and days and finally 8 of the 10 sprouted.
    very excited i thought this was amazing. i took pictures and told my friends! quite funny when i think back as they were only seedlings.
    they continued to grow and all reached a good 12 inches when the worst happened... i live high up on a mountain in spain and it gets very windy here in march april time, it was even so windy it blew my logcabin roof off! but thats a different story.
    anyway the wind came and blew for a good week, the first day i left my plants in the same place. They got beaten up bad some were upsidedown and others looking very droopy. but my biggest, snapped near enough rite in half.. i was gutted.
    i put soil around the break and hoped for the best and luckily it came back fine!
    i lost one of the small ones tho and was now left with 7.
    now the wind was gone i transplanted them all to bigger pots and they were all growing fine... next thing i get a knock on the door... police!:eek:
    i was of cause shitting myself i didnt want to lose these plants and i didnt want to get a fine lol.... it turns out the police were here because of an unregistered bike on my land so i was clear.. the funny thing was they were stood just meters away from my plants and didnt even notice..
    the next stage was sexing i knew what to look for as i have a gd friend who knows his stuff and helped me along the way..
    my biggest seemed to show sex the soonest a female. seeing those little white preflowers is amazing! so exciting to know you have a female! deffinate bud!
    i waited what seemed for ever but one by one they showed there sex....all female apart from 2 smallers that STILL havt showed sex...
    so i have 5 girls very lucky i thought. I now decided to put them in the ground as they would have more root space. the day i was digging the holes i noticed one of my girls was very yellow and leaves droopy( very cose to death) i put them all in the ground and they shot up amazingly.. even the yellow one turned back to green and with fertalising them it came bk in 3 weeks..
    anyway they carried on growing bigger and bigger. I watched them as they shot past a meter...
    the next step was budding i knew this would b the most exciting bit of all. BUT, i hit yet another problem..
    ph problems.
    all my plants were getting yellow leaves and dying off. i searched the internet for the problem and soon narrowed down the problem my ph was 7.4... way too high... i started adding vingar which corrected the ph and i also bought a special bloom fertiliser for flowering plants..these worked great and all my plant started flowering
    it was very exciting and still is.. i then hit another problem 2 weeks ago...
    i had a hermi!:eek: i dug it out of the ground and put it back in a pot at the back of the house so now i have 4 girls and one hermi...
    now today my plants are looking better than ever! budding so nice!
    i have some pics but its of them in the 1st week of flowering i will update picks soon, of them now! i hope i didnt bore you too much with my story and hopfully others can learn from my problems i wanted to post my story to make others relise who want to grow that its not that simple!my plants are now 3 or 4 weeks away from harvest and i cant wait, any comments apreiciated and same with rep:D lol,
