    This will be my Journal for the " Bomb Seeds" THC Bomb Auto - Frogster Grow.

    A big thank you to Bomb Seeds 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:-

    General Battle of the Year

    The "THC Bomb Auto" 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 1.jpg

    Tent 2.jpg

    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 30/01/2019

    Both "THC Bomb" seeds that I planted as backups after the first "No Show Seed" have germinated.

    The first backup seed sown (left in photo below) has just raised her head, looking a little sad, but we will see.....

    1st Seedlings A.jpg

    The second backup seed has also geminated (bottom left in group photo below), She is looking better.... But early days yet.

    4 Seedlings Day 1.jpg

    Water with a tad of "Root Excelsior" & "Mammoth P" added

    Temp: 26c Rh 60%(ish)

    Update Day 1

    I am calling this Day 1 (easy to remember - Feb 1st), although the seeds showed their heads above ground around the 30th Jan

    Today I transferred some of the baby seedlings, including a THC Bomb, into their final autopot setups.

    From here in, this grow journal posts and photos will be mainly restricted to my Bomb Seeds grow (and battle),

    The other plants I am growing in the same tent, alongside this grow (Autoseeds, Zamnesia & Seedstockers), can be found in their respective Seed Banks areas.

    However, there may be the need for some group or tent shots now and again.

    Day 1 Potted.jpg

    Day 1 Potted B.jpg

    I am growing under Autocobs, and at present have 1 over each seedling potted up.

    Here is one of the group shots I was talking about.... to demonstrate setup etc

    [​IMG]

    I am using the Pulse unit to monitor this grow, as it was very successful my last grow.

    Current conditions & environment

    [​IMG]

    Soil:-
    Canna Pro Plus with added Perlite, Pebbles, Charge & Microhaze

    Feed:- Ph'd Tap Water with a dash of Roots Excelsior & Mammoth P

    Environment:- Grow tent, Temp 26c(ish), Rh 60%(ish)


    I have another THC Bomb, still germinating, that will be transplanted to a final pot later (all being well).

    For the next few days the lights will be on 24/0, but will be changing to 20/4 later.

    Calling out to @CannaZone Tier 1 as some may have missed this and be interested (still a few seats left)

    Update Day 3

    I had planted a THC Bomb backup seed, as I wasn't sure about the original seedling.

    I needn't have worried, as the first seeding is looking fine after her transplant into her final Autopotpot.

    However, the Back up seed has sprouted..... but not a normal plant...

    I have Twins !

    I have heard about this phenomenon happening, but it is rare.

    Plant 2 & 3 Potted.jpg

    They were very close together on sprouting, so I separated the stems apart a little on re-potting, they now have a little space between them.

    Not holding out a lot of hope to mature both in one pot, I may have to kill off the weakest as we progress.

    Twins is a first for me, going to be interesting to see how this develops.

    :pass: :pass:

    Wow - that is very interesting. I would say that you get about 1 in approx 10,000 twinning. Go out and buy yourself a Lottery Ticket!!
