I noticed yesterday 2 of the 3 plants already have alternating nodes @ 32 days from seed. Fed them and gave a dose of EM. The soil is drying out about daily now but it is hot and sunny. Found some dechlorination stuff I bought a couple of years ago so I am going to use it in lieu of having buckets of water hanging around to evaporate the chlorine. 1 ml of the stuff is enough to dechlorinate 20 gallons of water. Had to get creative and ‘mathy’ to dilute it to dechlorinate gallon jugs…

Older leaves are looking pretty poor. Clipped off the meristem of the self-topper. Yellow and brown, flush it down. Seeing roots coming out of the bottom. I will up-pot them tomorrow. Too hot to play around with plants today…

Up-potted these this morning. Put some EM bokashi bran in the soil(~3/4 cup in 2 gallons of soil) as well as some extra perlite. They have been spending the night outside the past couple of nights. Good root development. The pebbles in the old pots were to prevent the soil from getting flushed out of the drainage holes and prevent the bottom soil from pooling water too. The new pots just have some old door screen in the bottom. The drainage holes are too large. I think they were used for hydro originally.

I think the fresh soil, bokashi bran and EM are a bit too much for my plants. Haven’t fed them in a while but I am seeing some nute burn. Should have seen it coming since EM and bokashi bran are supposed to enhance microbe life and thus nutrient uptake. Straight water for a bit…

I didn’t know KB was growing it too
I'm not currently growing it...... But I will be making it a 1/3rd of next year's grow them freaks. Then the rest will be the 420 give away Bruce banner seeds then bigs chem9, c99 and a few others he sent kindly donated to this inferior bud grower lol. The rest are a bunch of crosses oldfogey made of Mimosa, Golden Lemon and Triple Grape crosses that will be next year's outdoor run. Then after next outdoor season if it's still illegal I'm gonna have to make a run to a state that I can grow legally my outlaw days are coming to a close...... Maybe Virginia close to the border by the coast. I've got to ponder on it and see how the vote goes in the fall peace ✌️

I think the transplant, the hot soil mix, topping, over-watering(Mother Nature is to blame for that)and me helicoptering them ain’t helping…
