    Hello Waira! We previously discussed soil but I did a mix of happy frog and ocean forest with extra perlite added. For my seedlings however I mixed this mixture with some EB Stone seedling mix. At first the seedlings were quite dark due to excess nitrogen but they seem to be calming down now that they are getting older and hungrier. I haven't used any nutrients except calmag, water soluble mycorrhizal fungi, and fulvic/humic. Anyways I have almost every way to test pH that I know of. Soil (probe, reaction agents) and H2O (drops, and meter.) I don't trust the pH H2O meter one bit and need to acquire calibration liquid. My soil concoction is resting at a 6.5-6.8 right now on the probe. I unfortunately have another bag of happy frog and ocean forest here. I always get extra soil because too much is better than too little, but this time I really overestimated how much I needed. So not the next time but after that I will try one of those soils. Are they just at grow stores or is it available at nurseries?

    The 00 seeds was a n00b thing to do and I do not recommend them at all. I got it as a cheap trial pack of three strains. The Sweet Critical here is doing just as good as the others. It is already showing flowers but I wished it would of veg more. It does however have the largest of nodal growth. But the Blueberry and White Widow failed to germinate. I dug around after a week or two to see what was going on and it seemed to grow .1 inch and then just stop. Could be my fault but I was able to germinate all other seeds from other brands. (Mephisto, Sweet Seeds, Barney's, Seedsman, Nirvana, and Fastbuds) I love fruity strains; citrus, mango, and berry nothing beats it. I am most excited for strawberry nuggets and the mystery bean. Oh! and the photography, you don't know this but one of my main hobbies(besides gardening) is taking field macro photographs of native flowers. I think I am going to try daylight photography first. I attach a photo of mine in the next post

    I had to cut the quality into a quarter. The file was wayy to big for the specifications of the site. Notice how the bee's head is the one that does the pollinating and its pollen catchers are empty. Pretty cool how nature evolves together. This is Salvia mellifera (Black Sage)

    hey annie, fellow outdoorist,

    how do you do and your plants? some posts have gone missing during the AFN outages, but I remember you went for a trip for couple of days. Are you back already? How did husband handle the plants?

    I am looking forward seeing any updates in your thread.

    @HavanaJazz I’m still on vacation right now I will be back in a couple days. So far so good with my plants back home from what I can tell from the pictures he’s sent me. They have stretched and doubled in size since I’ve been gone. I didn’t want him to attempt LST so things have gotten a little wild on many of the plants. Oh and I’m definitely not married :crying:

    Just got back today! Had to prolong my trip because I had an emergency train ride to go on with my dad. Growth looks good so far, regardless of that my plantsitter refused to deal with my “stinky” liquid fertilizers on the cannabis. Many things are in disarray here and I’m afraid I’ve lost months of progress on some of my vegetable garden. Will have plenty of photos and a more in-depth explanation later tonight so stay tuned!
