I started the third week applying rooting in doses of 1ml / L and growth fertilizer in 2ml / L.
In the 4 week a nutritional supplement was given to avoid deficiencies, stress and further stimulate their growth.

After pruning, Gelato responds in a good way. During this week 4 in addition, I do a Main-Lining to the plant. The cultivation continues in week 5, with defoliation to avoid the leaves that you do not want to have. At this point, I also do another apical pruning at the tips. Also, I apply LST to the side branches.
On the week 4. In addition to the stimulant to keep pruning stress down and the respective growth fertilizer as well, add a colonizer to stimulate the roots to expand through the substrate.
The cultivation continues in the week 6, with the addition of CO2 to stimulate the growth of the plant. Moreover, I add bat guano to the plant. At this point, it is important to note that magnesium-rich fertilizers are added, in order to solidify the growth of the plant, at this time

At this time, flowering begins for Gelato, during week 7. The plant is then irrigated with water only to remove some salts from the growth fertilizers and clean the substrate. The lateral branches, to which LST was applied, show great development.
We continue in week 9, with an LST for the branches that were born by the pruning applied previously.
In week 10, it looks like Gelato, it begins to produce abundant resin in its flowers. Do not forget, that this plant is super strong and makes it known.
At this point, in week 7, to move to flowering, I decide not to fertilize the plants, for the same reason it is watered only with water.
In week 8, I start watering with the bloom boosters. I also include the flowering fertilizer and a resin and flavor stimulator. To ease the stress of LST, I use a stimulant to decrease stress. Besides, I apply molasses to help the sugars in the plant.
Gelato in week 10 does not stop blooming, for the same reason, I also use a flower fattener, to increase its volume and weight. Consequently, the flowers grow thanks to the molasses, the fertilizer and the micronutrients that stimulate the plant.

Week 11 begins and Gelato, did not stop growing his flowers. Do not forget that the resin production is high, therefore it needs more food. I increase the lighting to two viespectra of 400v and 600v, this the plant appreciates, it loves light.
In week 12, does not stop consuming nutrients, I must water with more water, therefore increase the dose of nutrients a little. First, I see that in this week 13, Gelato becomes much more potent with its flowers. The buds are denser, heavier and harder. The resin is produced in large quantities.
Finally, in week 14 the plant is shown with more amber and darker trichomes, so it is time to do a flush wash. With this, I already begin to end the cycle with Gelato.
To help the plant mature in the week 11, I use a fertilizer that helps ripen the flowers. Continuously, they apply the flowering fertilizers, the fattener, and obviously molasses for sweetness.
In week 12 continue to water with fertilizers. Then, in week 13 I do the last irrigation with fertilizers.
Week 14 I stop watering with fertilizers and only use settled water, to start cleaning the substrate a little from the salts of the nutrients.
