    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

    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
