Thanks for the warm welcomes!

Hello Bexley and welcome aboard.

Looks like you have a garden that keeps you pretty busy.

cheers

Yessir! I had the space so why not. Most of my days off are spent near a volcano vaporizer so I gotta fill that puppy up! :p

It’s set to yield a few every couple weeks, so there’s less than it looks compared to a SOG but it’s a steady supply. None of the photogenic strains are in full bloom as I’m cloning or want to clone ‘em. Plus I like little projects & had a ton of aquarium equipment lying around unused that made for some unexpected serendipity.

They are grand! I think they’re just the bomb. I’d be down for a volcano club party anytime.



Also there’s per post photo limits so here’s a /nearly/ two week defoliation study on this Jack.

I was productively busy today!

Swapped the aquarium out for a more light tight option. Killed 2 clones (1 I didn’t like the look of, 1 by accident during transfer). Dome on during day. At 15 of original 24, most are rooted. Moved two of the better ones to Hydro and one to soil to see how they fare before shifting the rest.

Also I finally cleaned up the bloom mini room. I got the Vivo 1k light running and put four in - two Green Crack feminized & two Blue Dream regular that I think are both male. Time to play some Barry White. Also the Green cracks have 6 & 8 top buds!

- Planted 2 more clones in soil to make space for 8 newly cut Banner clones. Testing early soil on 3.
- 2 Hydro tent clones doing well.
- Perlite clones test 50% fail; likely too warm.

Buttercup; nearly done.



A god awful fight broke out in the garden tonight as the two Blue Dream males fought for the right to pollinate.

Weapons were drawn. Sap went everywhere. I have a strong stomach but I was sick from the intense violence.

Then the winner stopped toying with his lesser opponent and finished him.
Oh god it was grisly!

I normally don’t dream but a couple nights ago had a nightmare about germination. For whatever reason I had bought seeds that were sent attached to a mason jar’s exterior & when I took them off some popped off the jar. When I tried to gather them up off the floor I realized the fall broke the taproots off. I started to panic over killing them, and that’s when I woke up.

So yeah, my concerns over the drastic loss of germination success manifesting at night caused me to decide to try again. That and oddly after that dream I checked my new mat setup and found one of the ancient seeds I had tried for fun actually popped. That little bit of hope (& fear) was enough to motivate me to try four Critical Plus 2.0 seeds. Despite it being early hours three seem to have popped! The mat seems to be doing its job so I intend to start a few more to try the strains of failed batches to determine if it was genes or setup. Moving in the right direction!!


Buttercup was cut down. So sparkly, this girl!

Bubbles finished drying and came in at a disappointing 7g, but seems quite nice. Much fruitier than Blossom. However she was part of the early group & had a weak first month as I had been trying to get my setup sorted out as the grow began, so I’m not overly concerned. I think Buttercup’s yield will fall between her two sisters. It’s funny that they all shone in different ways - Blossom in yield, Bubbles in scent (& hopefully thus flavor too), and Buttercup in trichromes

Hydro setup continues to do alright. The two GC clones added in seem to be adapting well & will be allowed to stay.

New GCs

Cloning test 1 - bubbler
Two soil clones seem to have failed but the third looks quite good.
Most of the ‘inactive/won’t make it’ group is gone & all that remains are clones growing out roots. I think I’ll end up with a 33% success rate if most take to being transferred. Although I might wish for more I’m glad for any after being rusty & out of commission for so long.

Took some new clones as well - figured you never know!
