Greetings folks. I'll use this journal to track progress on my unsponsored plants competing in the Mephisto and Zamnesia 2019 Grow Battle Finals (Aug 18 to Dec 1).

My kit for this grow is:
Gorilla Grow tent: 4x4x8
Analog humidifiers with Inkbird Controllers
Medium: Roots Organics Original; amended with dolomite, azomite, silicium & worm casings
Containers: 3-gallon RainScience Grow Bags
Nutrient program will be substantially Greenleaf Nutrients
Lights are TBD; either Amare SE450UVB or CobShop AutoCobs or maybe some of each

The Mephistos are: 1 Fantasmo Express & 1 Man Bear Alien Pig (Illuminauto # 26)

The Zamnesias are: 1 Caramel & 1 AK-420.

After 33 hours in the shot glass, all seeds had cracked, and some had tails. Then into the jiffy plugs and under a cover.

Unfortunately, of the ten seeds in these little starter "pots" - only 1 sprouted (a Dinafem). Upon reflection, my fault, I didn't squeeze out the water from these pots, so I'm pretty sure the failure was from excess moisture/humidity.

So.... did a re-drop of the Mephistos (Fantasmo & MBAP) and the two Zamnesias (Caramel & AK-420).

Went back to my more usual germination method - just 12 hours or so in the shot glass, then into moist paper towel in dark warm space for a couple of days. Got tap roots, then right into final Rainscience grow bags. Success this time !

Slowly getting their feet established. Daily misting rotating among plain RO water, SM-90, and Opti-Foliar. Here's the Zamnesias, both 9 days old.

And here's the Mephistos. Fantasmo is just 6 days old, whereas MBAP is 10 days old.

Zamnesias now at day 15. Caramel is shaking off the "gawkiness" of her early leaves and starting to look a bit more normal. But AK-420 is out-pacing her with some nice, vigorous growth. Both getting fed now with a lite MegaCrop mix with cal-mag, plus daily misting once or twice.

Mephisto Fantasmo Express is 12 days, and ManBearAlienPig is 16 days. They're on the same feed & misting program as the Zamnesias.
