July 2 - 49 days since seeds got wet and the lights switched off this morning to mark the end of the veg light cycle of 18-6.

Later today the lights come back on and will begin their 12-12 cycle to the promised land.

Its FLIP Friday!



Let's turn these little pot plants into bouquets of flowers 😍 I've added 2 rods under the pots to increase air-to-soil in the hope that will speed up consumption of water and therfore drying up of the soil in these cold and humid times. Will probably find something else to serve this purpose more effectively over the weekend.

July 6 - Day 53

From left to right: 2, 1, 3.

They got some water today (explains the humidity spike on the chart). 


Clothes pegs have been removed - release the kraken! I must still remove the garden wire but they are on with a fair bit of wiggle room so there shouldn't be any risk of cutting into the branches.20210706_190406.thumb.jpg.c7a9a2b36d671734f1da77517a2eaaca.jpg

Can see the little milex heater on the potjie stand in the corner under the fan. Been running it during lights-on to keep the tent around 23-24°C during the "day". 



Eskom. 15% increase. Pain.

You might notice the ladies got new shoes 👠 found some of those plant stands at Cape Garden Centre.

July 3 - July 11: The first week after flip.
July 12: Day 9 of 12/12
Very carefully up-potted #1 and #2 into the darker grey 10L->15L darker
#3 repotted 10L->20L lighter
I usually finish in +20L but initially thought that with them being relatively small I could get away with 10L... I noticed 1# and #2 (closest to the heater) drying faster than usual and I think I over corrected by giving those 2 a bit more water. Sad (wilting/drooping) looking leaves... wary that it could be the heater, it could be me overwatering, but if its root-space related then it's #3 will soon follow them. So repotted to be safe and also lowered the temp of the heater from 26C to 22C - hoping that's less of a shock to the plants right next to the heater when it comes on but will also still prevent the tent from getting too cold. Growing in peak winter is new to me tweak the system and learn as we go...
They pretty much pulled out the 10L pots like plugs 
July 14 - day 11 of 12/12
Still looking a lil sad at this point. 
July 17 - 2 weeks of 12/12
#2 and #1 looking happier and #3 looking happiest 
Removed some excess fan leaves. Over the next week I will remove some leaves covering buds but after 3 weeks of 12/12 I'm going to try avoid any surgery until the big cut.
#3 in all her glory

👀 is this from colder temps or a nutrient issue?


Goodmorning, Sir! Looking goooood 😁

I think it's not likely for only one part of one leaf to turn purple when cold is the only factor, so I think it's a bit of both here, looks like either deficiency or a ph problem not allowing uptake of a certain nute, the leaf is showing it and now because the leaf is compromised it's more susceptible to environmental factors such as the cold. 

just keep an eye on her, no stress yet, could be that the rest of the plant still turns purple, then it's the cold, but if growth slows down and odd discolouration continues you might wana ask yourself where it could've been that you either gave too much or too little of something.
