I have been wanting to start a vlog for a while now, but have been too lazy to look for some of the chargers that I will need. I want to incorporate so many different things in my vlog, like drones, GoPro footage, recording with my regular camera and even my phone, and then editing it all together into one video.

But ever since my daughter moved her room into the basement and I had to move my office upstairs, I have not been able to find my drone charger or my GoPro charger, so I took some time to find them this morning and now everything is charging.

So now that everything is charging, I am going to be trying to figure out the content I am going to be recording. Of course, my pets with star in it.

I am also going to be showing stuff about cannabis and growing cannabis. I am going to be harvesting one of my plants over the next day or two, so I will be recording the process about that and talking about when to harvest and different techniques.

This is here is ready to go and more and more amber trichomes are popping up all the time.

I moved her to a dark tent where she will be for the next 24-48 hours. This will ensure optimum trichome creation and THC levels. Doing a dark cycle before harvest will make the plant soak up all the nutrients from the soil and water instead of relying on the lights or the sun to feed them.

The branches are getting pretty heavy and over the next 24-48 hours, I may need to tie them up for some extra support as the buds expand one last time.

One of the things that has worked for me with this latest grow is "lollipopping," or cutting lower branches off, my plants. Lollipopping is a pruning technique that when done properly, can increase your yields and potency of your plant.

Cannabis plants have a certain amount of energy in their life cycles, especially autoflowers. When you lollipop them and cut off the lower branches, the plant pushes that energy and nutrients that it would have sent to all of the branches, to the remaining branches.

With my next set of plants, I am going to have to learn how to use scrog netting properly. It is an amazing way to spread your canopy out and to evenly get light across your plant. It would have been good for the plat above that has a super tall cola because now that thing is going to be poking up near the lights, when I could have used a scrog net and made the whole canopy even so each part of the plant gets the same amount of lighting.

Well, that is it for this post. I need to do some work on intros and transitions for my vlogging. If there are any subjects you would like to see me talk about in my vlog, let me know. Thanks for stopping by, you are awesome.
