This will be my Journal for the "Autoseeds" Purple Stilton - Frogster Grow.

A big thank you to Autoseeds for providing the test seed

This is one of four plants I will be growing in the 2019 Round-1 Grow Battles.

To be included in the following Grow Battles:-
Autoseeds Grower of the Year
The Biggest Grow Battle in the World
General Battle of the Year
Lighting Grower of the Year

The "Purple Stilton" will be sharing a tent with the 3 other plants also entered into the 2019 grow battles.

The seed was placed into a shot glass for a soak on the 18 Jan 2019

The seed has cracked and is ready to be planted into a starter pot, this will be completed tomorrow.

Update

I have just about finished the set up of the tent and systems that are going to be used in this grow.

Not installed all 8 cobs yet, as they are not required for seedling growth.

The system has been tested and appears to run fine.

Tent Temp & Rh are holding true, so time to pot up the seeds that have been soaking into starter pots and get them in the tent.

Update @Need4Weed

Second (Backup Seed) sown directly in soil today

Pot 2.jpg


First seed popped her head but not looking as I would like, hence seed number 2 sown.

Update

Following on from the above post....

Took a closer look at the failed germination of the 1st Purple Stilton seed.

Failed Germ 1.jpg



The environment is perfect for germination, so I had a little dig to take a look...

Failed Germ 2.jpg


Tap root produced, started to grow.... and then.... died.

Another has already been sown to replace her (as recorded), but still not sure why this one failed:shrug:

Wait... hold on, I did have that happen with an autoseeds... I forget which one now... crap. @Frogster I did have that happen with an autoseeds... I did have 2 autoseeds not sprout. A hijack i got as a freebie and a sweet cbd auto. But I blamed those on really bad methods of germination
