Hello everyone! It’s been way too long! Combination of life just getting in the way and the changes to the site months ago made it easier for me to stay away! Anyways, my last run was 3 Bears OG and a few Ghost Toof. After sampling the Ghost Toof I went straight to my seed stash to check inventory. I found I had 10 Ghost Toof or so I thought, and wanted to grow something else I had not yet grown. I decided on Forum Stomper as I had 2 of them. Anyways after giving them a start in life following the methods outlined in a very useful post by @slowandeasy (I noticed it was recently revived again- excellent read for anyone with or without germ issues! Been following his lead for years btw! Learned soo much from him!) So, as I was finishing planting my seeds I was scratching my head... I had 3 cups left to plant into and 4 seeds staring at me in a shot glass. First thought was “damn! I’m soo high right now that I skipped one... but which one? I made up another cup and planted the seeds figuring that whichever didn’t sprout was the cup I missed. Well a few days later I was scratching my head looking at 13/13 germination! Apparently I had 11 and NOT 10 Ghost Toof. Anyways Day 1 was October 28th. Also, I accidentally crushed one of the Ghost Toof on day 6 so everything turned out as initially planned 10 Ghost Toof 2 Forum Stomper.

So here’s setup info...

5x5 with an HLG 550 knockoff from Meijiu (first version with lm561c diodes) 6 inch Typhoon Fan w/ 6in CanFan carbon filter , Secret Jardin monkey fan, and additional fan for air circulation.
2 Forum Stompers are in 3gal airpots with Canna Coco, 2 Ghost Toof are also in 3 gal airpots. The remaining 8 GT are in the standard 3.9 gal autopots. This is my first time using this system. I grew in the pots once before but never ended up setting the lines and reservoir up! Lol. Even this time around I only set everything up and turned on the reservoir like 5 days ago! Very happy with how things are progressing in the 5x5

Today is day 48, around day 35 I moved the 2 Forum Stompers and one GT into my 2x4. I have 3 original autocobs in that tent, 4in Typhoon fan w 4in CanFan filter. Due to cooler temperatures in there things seems to be moving much slower in there (it’s in my basement in a really cold spot!)

Both strains are being fed MegaCrop 2.0, CalMagPro, Bud Explosion all from @Greenleaf Nutrients And from about week 3 on I’ve been adding Advanced Nutrients Revive to their feeds because I had it laying around and was noticing a minor deficiency on most of them early on.
Very early on it was evident that the FS is a very light feeder. Around the 3-4 week mark I was giving GT 0.7-0.8 EC and they were ok with it. The FS couldn’t handle it at all. Had to back down the FS feeds by 0.3EC. Currently FS feed is 0.7-0.8 and GT is 1.1 I’m planning on trying to bump them up by 0.2 this weekend and see how they react...

Thank you my friend, glad to have you along for the ride. I’m excited to see what the next 3-4 weeks brings us! I’m working today but if I get the time to do it later I might try and see if I can move some things around in there. If I can find the room I might try and squeeze the plants from my 2x4 in there and bring the autocobs up with them... their water uptake has really slowed in the 2x4 with those lower temps. As well because of the temps I’m not doing much in the way of air exchange... just have the monkey fan doing it’s thing in the 2x4. If I turn on my extraction the temps will dip to 18-19C

Wishing you the best of luck on this grow! I am glad that you found my seed thread useful. I encourage anyone with germ issues ro give it a read. This time of year is hard for some people as the temps have gone down tremendously vs a month ago. I actually had to bust out my hesting mat and thermostat. I have her set at 85f. My big tent claims 84F at the top. BUT, take a reading at the bottom near a plant and the temps are 70F. That is a 14F difference and the differnce is so great that I would place money on it that a seed would not germ at 70f. The same exact seed would most likely germ and be up above ground in a few days. Anyone who attempts to germ in winter months should invest in a heating mat/themostat if you are unable to have consistent temps 80-85F. Or struggle and blame the breeder.

As for your Ghost Toof and Forum Stompers, they are doung fine! Both wonderful strains! Forun stomper can get tall. I really like the size , shape and speed of Ghost Toof. It was actually pretty fast for me. Forum Stomper went a little longer due to size. I really like the few Cookies crosses from Mephisto. Nice and frosty, great for Rosin pressing. I will be following closely. Take care! SLOW

So glad to have you along my friend! I’m a big fan and have been watching the amazing work you’ve been doing this past year! I’ve been inspired by your grows to try my hand with organic soil next year! Been following along whenever I’ve been around. Really enjoying watching others on here dip their toe in the water and it’s so great to be a part of this community. It truly is a special place on the web. Not going to find a more supportive, informative, and selfless bunch anywhere else on the web. Watching @slowandeasy new adventures with organics and those earth box jr is definitely giving me something to think about...
