A forgotten Cookies from Mephisto Genetics. I started off by letting the seed soak in a shot glass of Phd water of 6.4 for 18 hours, seed finally sunk and began to crack open, planted the seed in a 16oz solo cup of FF Happy frog soil using this instatransplant method I read in a forum on here https://www.autoflower.net/forums/threads/instatransplant-cups-pots-pictorial-and-root-restriction-stunting.64509/ ( pictures below ) I decided to try the happy frog soil again because after my seedling got a little bit bigger it didn’t seem to bother it on my first grow, I think it may have just been me overwatering, poor draining (Only 1 drain hole in a clay pot ) and pot size, not so much the soil probably. Will just continue to use PhD tap water in a spray bottle while I leave her in the solo cup for about 10 days. I’ll then transplant her to my 3 Gal Air-Pot with happy frog soil as well using this “stress free transplant method” which actually seems pretty fool proof to me. You just sit the entire solo cup in the soil and let the roots grow through the windows on the cup, no pulling the plant out of the smaller pot or cutting the cup getting dirt everywhere. Simply just plant the cup into the soil. She will be under 2x 300w LEDs in my 32x32x65 tent with a 6 inch carbon filter and inline fan. With 2 more small desk fans as well. I’ll be using the fox farm trio Nutrients, grow big, tiger bloom, big bloom. Also Botanicare Calmag and GH ph up and down. Here she is on day 1 trying to shed her seed shell.

Day 5 update.
Been hitting her with a spray bottle of ph’d water whenever the soil starts getting dry. I’ve just been pulling the cup out and checking the soil all the way through the cup, spraying the windows essentially watering from the bottom of the container. I do keep the top layer moist as well. I read somewhere though that it’s a good idea to weigh the cup with your soil before you’ve planted the seed or added water to see the dry weight of the container, then weigh it after you’ve soaked the soil. That way you’ll just be able to weigh the cup to see when it needs watering, preventing over and underwatering. Seems to make sense to me and I’ll definitely be doing it next go around, just slipped my mind this time.

Did the transplant on day 9 little late uploading it. All went smooth, here’s a few pictures of how I learned to do it through reading on here. Only thing I switched up was cutting a big hole on the bottom of my solo cup before I put it in the soil. Made more sense to me for the roots to be shooting down as well instead of just out of the sides. Basically you just mold out your hole with the same solo cups your already using then just set your solo cup with the seedling down into the new pot, easy as that. If all goes well the roots should grow out of all the openings I’ve cut in the cup.

Thanks man, hoping this one is better than my 1st grow everything I’ve seen from Mephisto is top notch so all the rest of the work is in my hands lol. I’m wanting to finish her no later than the 80 day mark. Fingers crossed. I’ll keep updated regularly.

Here’s a day 14 update. Seems like she took the transplant pretty well and never had any slowdown on growth. By far the fastest plant I’ve tried growing, no burns or yellowing yet so fingers crossed lol. Watered with 2 cups of PhD water a couple days ago.
