    Let's get started... Got the seeds on the 1st of june. On the 2nd I soaked them for 12h in water and placed them in a paper towel.. On the 4th Placed them in their first pot. A small 1L pot with equal part wormcasting/perlite/peatmoss. From them I was away for 6 days.... While away I ran out of electricity 😒... A rough start... one seed never came up, and another 2 got some damping off... I think I might be able to save one with some aloe and trichoderma. But the other one looks doomed... One of the seed is a little mutant, 3 cotyledons and 3 leaflet so far...Let’s see if she retains them. Day 3 - 11/06

    What's up Canna Fam, all the beans popped above ground but the one seems to have taken a nose dive and dampened off I suspect. So now we have 5 healthy looking seedlings to contend with. So far so good, best of luck to all.

    week 2 (update) Good morning members, update on the garden. Growth have been slow mainly due to the cold and space in the grow box. This weekend will be hillbilly weekend and some building and extending taking place. Will be moving two into a small veg box tonight. All made a happy recovery after transplant and looking healthy. Currently they all under 18/6 light schedule. *No nutrients yet, tap water, some music, intense stare for a few seconds, followed by whispering sweet words of encouragement to help them grow big and strong all day long. What a pleasure it is to be growing legally, sharing and learning from other growers and cannabis lovers.

    Bit early on the update. Added some heat to the mix today. Hopefully it helps them. Also added another Led light to stop the stretch and added a fan to get those stems strong. Sent from my VTR-L09 using Tapatalk

    All the seedlings are doing well, they have been receiving mostly CFL light with some indirect light from the hps. They will be receiving a few hours more of direct hps light every day until they are hardened off. Still just giving some rain water for feeding, nothing special in the mix yet.

    Diary Update So I'm happy to report that my plants are still allive one week later, previously they all died right after the seedling stage. Nothing much going on, as I have not had the time to move them into bigger containers, so that will happen over the weekend. The initial stretching also don't look as bad as it did at first, although on the photos it still looks pretty bad

    Iv called it... I nominate #chocolope1 to be my chosen plant.. It was the obvious choice.. Outclassed the others in everyway... Left them in the coco 😂

    The seedlings are all looking great despite my box running a bit cooler than it should be at night. Today I gave them a little topdressing with some of the same soil mix, but it has beneficial microorganisms and also some insect frass mixed in. Should give them a good boost this week.

    Labeled the girls for progress tracking and selection. Chocolope 001 and 002 was the first to germinate on 28/05/2019, Chocolope 003 and 004 followed on 29/05/2019.

    Good Morning, It's been a week later, and yesterday the last two seed germinated, the others germinated on Friday (2) and Saturday (2) respectively. All of them healthy, two seeds have produced twins, of which I removed the smaller twin. They now only received RO Water with some diluted Environoc and Kelpak solution every now and then. Happy Growing!

    Grow Diary Update 2: So, I had just popped the three ladies in the back about 2 weeks ago, heard about this compo & the chocolope😎 so i entered, got my seeds by that Friday & started germinating the Saturday. I only chose to pop 4 of the chocolope, as my grow room was only ever supposed to handle 4 plants at a time, now @7 in total. I can accommodate the extra plants, so the chocolope will join the rest of the ladies for this grow. Tried the volcano sexing method, not a believer tbh. 4/4 have germinated, one on the left is out the soil but a bit slow. After 24 hrs in water with a bit of H2O2 the another 24h in paper towel, 3 had shown tap roots, the 4th - nada. Took it out, filed the seam with a nail file & scuffed the rest of the seed, 12 hrs later tap root was out, 36 hrs later in was in seedling starter soil. The other 3 plants had already sprouted & here we are. POA - once the plants have established a bit more i'll move them to the next size pot, where i'll be switching to cocoperl, completely organic hydro & under HID. Thanks to everyone involved in organising this - you guys rock! Peace for now ✌️

    And 24 hours later we have some green... Still waiting on 1 seed that did have a tap root, but was way behind the rest.

    Here is another few nuggies, outdoor grown. BlueBerry Kush (Blueberry x Hindu Kush) x KushCookies (Afghani x GirlScoutCookies) - F1 This is the Orange/Apricot (Citrus) pheno. AKA - Appelkoos konfyt . Will start a inbred line from this specific plant, on the tongue orangy sherbert taste.

    A bit late to the party, but still excited for the Grow Off and my seeds have been put in some water to kick start the germination progress. Will be growing organically under some LED lights and this is my first grow ever, so we shall see how it turns out and I am sure I will be learning a lot too! Will be great to compare how my grow is doing with the other members growing too. Seeds: Swimming in the water:

    _Diary Update_ Awe Ouens! Got a nice little tap root on the seeds after 10 days and decided today is the day. Popped them in some Promix 50/50, sprinkled with some Dynaroot and they will now be going into the veg box to start its life in the medium and under some light. Will be putting them under a 400w Hql in the meantime as we should be getting our MH bulb by the weekend. This will be on 20/4 light cycle for now until they're abit bigger and then will be vegging on a 18/6. If I read correctly the Chocolope flowers in 10 weeks so wanna veg for about a month and a half maybe 2 and then switch to flower just to make it for the October harvest deadline. Looking forward to seeing all the other grows! Saaaafe!🖖

    Awesomeness, Thank you for organizing this, will be awesome to see whats cooking in some of these guys grows. Best of luck to all. Greenthumbs!

    Thanks, I separated them, and added two computer fans to help strengthen the stems a bit. Flushed both with rain water, cause that mid-leaf curl is maybe some sort of nutrient issue from drinking stagnant nutes for 2 weeks. Moved light a bit closer. Was at 100 PPFD before, now at 250 PPFD. Ok, good luck errybody!

    All the seedlings are looking healthy, now roughly a week since germination for them all. After some initial stretch I topped each pot up with more medium. Surface of the medium received a generous sprinkle of diatomaceous earth, to repel any potential pests as well as supply silica to the plant, strengthening cell walls as well as increasing stress tolerance/endurance. The LED light is about 60cm away from the tops, and the seedlings receive RO water containing only Kelpak. An oscillating fan is blowing gently over them, fattening up their trunks. Conditions are 21-24°C, with an RH of 70-85%. 🍁

    Got the chosen 4 in a small DWC box under CFLs. They're stretching badly, but we're in Durban for the Expo and will only be able to move them under the Mars-Hydro LED next week.

    Thanks for the advice @Kgrows @Dank @Totemic @420SA. I did the separation procedure this evening. Looks ok, per photos, but only time will tell... Thanks @Moosed, I don't know if the heated propegator makes a difference, but it makes me feel better. Like telling my kids to dress warmly because they're making me feel cold. Thanks also to @GreenthumbHydro, got my new lights today, brilliant service, as usual. I've moved everything into the main flower tent as seen in photos. In addition to the new 2x 300W LED, I've still to reinstall 2x 600W cooltube MH, which I run at low power till final weeks. Pardon the ledpurp photos following, once the MH in, I'll be back to normal colour.

    I like to keep my fat cells as full of cannabinoids as possible..... smoke more if you have too much flowers!?!?!! Honestly that piss test will spring apart and break. But yeah storage as mentioned above is a must.

    420SA INDOOR GROWOFF 2019 And so it begins ... 🌱 Very excited to be growing along with all the enthusiastic gardeners out there. 👊 Good luck to all the other growers participating in the indoor & outdoor comps. 👊 Strain: Chocolope Seeds: @Totemic (many thanks for the beans) SEED SOAK (29/5/2019) With great haste, I managed to pop the lid (almost forgot to take some pics 🤨) & dunked the 6 beans into some pH balanced water for the obligatory soak. The journey of these babies will also be documented on my Instagram profile, for those that may be interested in my other growing adventures. https://www.instagram.com/thegreengardengoblin/

    Week 3: We have a late bloomer! After 3 weeks of attempting to germinate all 6 seeds only 3 have popped, I am going to scrap the other 3. I have given them numbers from 1-3 and will be including them on the tags when the seedlings undergo their first transplant. The first to sprout(1): Number 2: And the late bloomer(3): From the 17/06/2019 I shall be posting the weekly updated every Monday until the end of the grow. A massive thank you to 420sa, Totemic Genetics and all others that were involved in the organization that is making this event a possibility!

    Potted #3.1 & #3.2. They're getting there, despite the trauma. Hopefully the saying, "what don't kill, only strengthens", applies. The other 5 are going strong, although I think I underestimate the LED's, and got some leaf burn. No nutrients yet, just some natural compost in the mix, so can't be that.

    a week and a bit since soak under 75 led tubes and just ph adust water with calmag for now. Thats 3 out of the 5 sadly snapped one in my hurry

    Ok so we left to travel for 2 weeks on May 24, so I put 2 seeds in coco, and set up a timer circuit to turn on the pump in the bucket reservoir (~20L of water, EHG nutrients, 0.5 EC, 6.5pH), drip feeding with runoff back into the bucket. 35W of light. Came back today, June 9, and they're alive! I'll move the second one into its own pot. But how does the competition work, again? Grow up to 5 and pick your best one? Or do I kill one now?

    Week 2 (10 June 2019) We have 6 out of 6............ however, one seems to be battling a bit but will keep her going as these sometimes turn out to be the best. A little Strange though as they were all subjected to the same conditions. I have been keeping the seedlings under a few 15 Watt CFL lights for 24 hours for a few days now. (I find this jumps starts growth, I have absolutely no scientific evidence of this though..😉 ) The roots have developed and have broken through the jiffies nicely and I have re-potted them into small 15cm pots. I mixed my own Medium on this one and used a mixture of Germination mix, Coco peat, Vermiculite and Perlite all bought at the local garden shop. No other nutrients yet added to the water or soil. Water at a PH between 6 and 6.5 Light cycle of 18/6 will be introduced gradually. Thorough clean has been done inside the grow tent from last grow using bleach. All in all Week 2 has been a successful one. Happy Growing!!

    Chocolope's are now on second true leave node. Chocolope 001 looks like the winner so far, just hope it's female.

    Grow Update 3: Chocolopes are looking good, maybe a bit slow due to massive temp drops at night over the last week. But they are looking healthy, they did go through an initial stretch, which i don't mind. Both the light & the genetics, (i'm guessing haze pheno) had a part to play. Running them under 400w MH , normally run cfl at this stage. First week @ 200w second @ 400w & at 1m above. gave them a very light feed yesterday & some microbes for the soil. The crit jack, moby dick & SS haze are not part of the compo but are part of the grow, they've definitely been stunted - will put up a post in the correct topic on these!

    Diary Update So it seems I screwed myself on multiple fronts and that meant a lot of learning and fixing over the last couple of days. Firstly my cfl lighting was running to hot and to close, so I swapped over to T5's, but they ended up being to far, so my seedlings stretched a bit. As you can see, my daughters hairbands came to the rescue. At least I know I can sort that out when I transfer them to their bigger pots. I also managed to DIY my light, so now I can adjust it to my liking. My second mistake was not checking the ph of my water. I collected rain water earlier in the year and assumed that it should be fine, but it was sitting at around 4.3, so all my seedlings had their initial growth spurt and suddenly just stopped and did anything. Now I know why I struggled so much to keep seedlings alive before. This seedling had it the worst and I thought it was going to die But after flushing with some good water, it seems to have turned around nicely So it has been a busy week , but they all seem to have recovered from the ph and light problems and are looking much better . So a little longer here, but bigger pots soon and then into the LED light.

    Update on the Indoor Growoff I am pretty happy with the progress these babies have made in the last week. Pic 1 was taken on 30/05 Pic 3 was taken 02/06 A bit of stretch but that's as a result of yours truly not germinating seeds deep enough in the soil (schoolboy) Now to start creating some space for these (hopefully all) ladies.

    Planted 5 of the seedlings in my custom grow medium. In this case custom is a combination of peat, coco, bark, perlite, vermiculite, garden compost, bokashi tea, bone meal, fish meal, em culture, molasses, rock & fossil dust (there's a proper name for these, I can't think of now, cause weed) and whatever else looks good at the time. Against what seems to be common consensus, I also recycle medium, but leave it outdoors for couple months between remixing. Nothing methodical or scientific, but at least it's green, cheap and it's got live earthworms. The twins (#3) are still alive, and both showing beginnings of vegetative growth, not just seed leaves, so they may yet make it. They're starting to show roots, so probably plant them this later this week. They probably won't catch #1 or #2 though, which are the group leaders.

    I have a relatively broad knowledge base regarding organics,macro/micro nutrients, rhizosphere ect... But I've haven't heard of AACT and the active inoculations before and their benefits as mentioned on this forum. Holy crap...what a difference it makes guys and girls... And proof is in the pudding... We harvested our last lady and it looked good she put on good weight and filled out beyond expectations. But I was surprized. All told 178gr dried and trimmed from a lady that stood 1.5m tall in a PEP 20lt carrier bag. This forum is beyond cool, thanks for adding to my knowledge of flora and a better insight into those ''little things''. Feed your soil is all I can say. Keep it going.
