    Time to move them to their own thread.
    Live long and prosper children of the tent.

    It all started innocently enough. I wanted to save the genetics in case I love anything from this first tent run. Also I only got one White Rhino seed (F) and it was important to me to try and save her.
    So I decided to do a little experimenting and hone up my skills with a razor blade.
    I ended up taking 4 clones X 9 plants for a total of 36.
    Tried 4 different methods.
    Soil, Coco cup (based on super simple cloning sticky), coco pucks and rockwool.

    Turns out that some of my clones were from boy plants - so they've been juiced!
    So cut 36-12 boys = 24 and 23 were transplant worthy. 22 were moved today. EDIT: never did plant the last one that was in rockwool.

    So I got lots of roots and it was time to move them into a real home. My plan included trying to keep these small till early November when I have to travel for a week. Then to flower them when I get back. I'm thinking a combination of LST and FIM should keep them in check and slow them down.
    Mix is coco/perlite only. I wanted something with zero nutes.
    Soil and rockwool both went into this mix, #5 grow bags.

    These girls are living under an 600W HPS on a dimmable ballast set at 60%.

    I mist them often with an organic tea mixture. They seem to love it.

    This is the runt of the litter. I figured it might have given up by now, but still doing fine. I actually had one more clone of this momma- but had run out of medium so I skipped it.

    LST- didn't do this at all on my first grow until I got to flowering. Then used coat hangers for the first 10 days to open up the large Kush plants.

    Used green wire and poked holes in bag, some twine and nut/bolts/washers to weigh plants down. Looks like they are wearing earrings and necklaces.
    hmmmm- maybe a new business there- Jewelry for MJ- but I digress.

    These are some hardy little houdinis. They have escaped from most of their restraints.
    SOOO had to go in and tie them down again!

    They are also really hungry little girls.
    They've been getting FloraNova Grow (started at 1.25ml per L- now up to 2.5ml per L)
    They also get my Guano Bloom (started at 2.5ml per L -now up to 5ml per L)
    And Organic tea mist (20ml in 2L) as the mood strikes me.
    And of course Epsom Salts every time- (coco you know)
    I alternate with plain water in between.
    They are each taking in about 750mls per feeding.

    Time to FIM
    I had really good luck with this the first time so definitely wanted to do it again.
    I thought this time, I'll have more bud sites (from the LST) so more places to FIM.
    Each plant got pinched in about 5-11 places depending on her size and current growing path. I also trimmed every leaf that wasn't perfect. And untied all the bondage. They will have two weeks before I LST them some more.

    Had to tie them down again- earlier than I planned.
    The more I try to restrain them the more they grow.
    Have done all 8 Kushes- the White Rhino is next.
