I’m sure some will roll their eyes but I cannot resist posting this fat stripey bud! This is my division of a roth that was jungle-collected in the 1950s. It’s big and sloppy and I don’t care at all, it is the jewel of my collection. The damage to the leaf occurred shortly after I got it, due to a dowel falling onto the plant. I’ve had it since about September 2018 and this bud is such a delightful surprise. I grow it in a due-south window, right against the glass; been wondering if that would be enough light and I guess it is! Have been using K-Lite fertilizer from First Rays with every watering, occasional KelpMax, RO water (First Rays filter). When I water, the mix (it came potted in large fir and perlite; I have sprinkled powdered oyster shell a couple times) gives off a delicious, fresh odor. Any advice on how not to blast the bud appreciated. Watering about every 5 days, light misting over the area every morning. The pot is ugly as sin and I will definitely be repotting it after the bloom cycle, however that works out.
