IMG_20190526_133618.thumb.jpg.8f702863d57885361a379852f8a5992b.jpgSoaking seeds in 25°C RO water containing a few drops of seaweed extract as well as Environoc 401, after seeds were scarified in a matchbox containing some sandpaper. They'll be soaking within a dark container for the next 24-48 hours depending on taproot development.

Oesh, you're doing what I wanted to try

 

Especially with the Environoc 401

@iGrowDagga Go for it, man, listen to your "gut instinct" :). If this stuff helps for rooting of clones then surely it can give a seedling a jumpstart.

Planted my seeds this morning, after a 16 hour soak, as I fear when I get home tonight after work they may have soaked too long. I didn't see any taproot appearing yet. 

 

I planted each seed about 10mm deep in 1L square pots containing the Hortishop's Organic Promix, which is spent and flushed from a previous grow or two.

 

The 6 pots were then misted thoroughly with 25°C tap water and placed within the grow tent 75cm beneath my Mars Hydro 192 LED.

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!

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%.

@DankThanks man! I'm surprised they're all equally happy and at the same height. Now just to wait for the first signs of gender in a month's time! ♂️ ♀️🔅

Good morning,

The plants are all past their 2-week-since-germination mark, finally in the vegetative phase, and coming along nicely.

 

The LED lighting has been lowered to about 50cm above the plant "canopies", and have been bottom-watered with 25°C filtered spring water containing Kelpak, ⅛-strength Biobloom, a tiny bit of blackstrap molasses, Evironoc 401, Vermipure, a drop aminomix, and a drop of pH down.

 

Conditions are a bit cooler lately, ranging between 19 and 23°C inside the tent, with humidity in the 50-70% range.

Good morning All

 

The six ladies are three weeks old now and have been transplanted to 5L Freedom pots yesterday morning; into medium consisting of old Organic Promix, bumped up with more perlite, a hint of vermiculite, bone meal and calcium carbonate, and the root ball placed on a sprinkle of Mycoroot.

Thereafter they were watered with 20°C filtered spring water containing Vermipure, Kelpak and a small drop of Biobloom. 

So far conditions have been relatively the same as last week, and some burn can be observed, which could have been from using slightly too much pH Down - something I'm not really keen on using again as it also harms microbial life within the growing medium.

Good morning everyone,

 

The plants are coming along nicely, having been topped at the 6th/7th node (hard to tell - they're so compact!) in the week, and some of the lower growth has been removed, as they make it hard to water without becoming soiled. So far it's still hard to make out the gender, but time will tell...

 

So far they all receive 20°C filtered spring water containing some kelpak, evironoc, and very diluted aminomix, biobloom, blackstrap molasses; every 2nd watering being only water. Also some worm castings have been worked into the top layer of growing medium.

Good evening,

The plants are nearly 6 weeks old, and although some of the plants show female and male reproductive organs, not all of them yet do...

They've received only clean, room temperature, filtered water, but are getting close to being very thirsty, and then they'll receive a nice vegetative cocktail.

I've cleaned up some of the bottom growth, focusing more on the top four or six branches.

Next week all the genders will be clear and prominent enough for photos, and any males will become compost.

Good evening all!

So the plants are now roughly 7 weeks old, and it seems as if 4-5 might me males and 2-3 females (one seems really hard to decide on, but once it is more evidently male it will be culled). 

Plants are looking rather healthy, and will be transplanted within the next week or two. 

Conditions have been pretty much 18-24 °C and 65-88% RH, and the led light is now about 55cm above the plants.

Lately they have received 20°C filtered spring water containing some heavily diluted bloom booster as it was water from my cloner's res that I was throwing out anyways. The next watering session will be a proper vegetative organic cocktail of goodies, for reals.

I hope you all can agree upon the pics of mostly male reproductive organs below 

😬

Very resinous male you got there! I would remove him and collect some pollen. And a definate girl. The other pic looks more like a female too. 

These are beautiful pre flower shots!

Nice pictures. I did not expect to be able to see that much development so soon, thanks. I'll take a look at mine tomorrow too
