DG test grow #2 - Freedom Farms organic craft soil

Recommended Posts

Day 1 - 2 October 2019

We are running another grow test using Freedom Farms organic craft soil as the plants just seem to love it. The same 3 strains, DG Buffalo Cheese, DG Candy iV and DG Diesoline. The pots are from www.growkit.co.za and make it very easy to germinate and repot into bigger post when ready - well you don't actually repot, just put these into your bigger pot and the roots grow right through, the pot becomes grow medium. Love it!

The seeds were planted into the grow medium. It will be interesting to see if it helps or hinders growth vs using a perlite, vermiculite and coco coir mix, with zero nutrients for the first  3 weeks as our previous test was done.

Very interested in the first few weeks comparison with you previous thread where you germentated in the nutrient less medium compared to germination straight into the "final" medium... Following.

Day 8 - 9 October 2019

We had a mishap, cat fight in the middle of the night took out 2 Diesolines. I managed to replant them, here's hoping they survive. All but 1 of the 9 have germinated.

Day 14 - 15 October 2019

Transplant of the 2 casualties have worked out. They are a little behind the others in terms of growth, but 100% germination! I cant tell any difference between germinating in a nutrient less medium vs freedom farms classic grow medium. It seems as I thought, there is enough nutrients in the seed to kickstart life.

1 = DG Buffalo Cheese
2 = DG Candy iV
3 = DG Diesoline

Day 15 - 16 October 2019

I so dig these pots from www.growkit.co.za. I've now potted them directly inside a bigger pot. The roots grow through the coir pots and provides a bit more ridgety to the soil and root ball when repotting them in their final destination.

The 2 top right ones (pic below) are noticeably smaller as result of that feline fight and the seeds being exposed to the elements for a day or two.

Day 30 - 31 October 2019

I have repotted all in Freedom Farms Classic Growing Medium, except for the 2 DG Diesolines that are playing catchup.

In a few weeks time I will slowly start adding nutrients, unlike our previous test, which had no nutes and the plants seem very happy. I'm going to try Supa Natural fish emulsion, at R89/bottle its half the price of Seagro and it seems to be pretty much the same thing. Anyone else try these nutrients?

The roots look super healthy!
