    Count me in!



    Week 2 update.

    Light schedule: 24/0

    Group shot


    Grapey Walter - Mephisto 8 days


    Grapey Walter - Mephisto 6 days


    Sour Lemon Tart - Bakery Seed Co. 8 days


    Couple of Blueberry Shortcakes in there that had a hard start and dropped another Sour Lemon Tart as lost one to damping off. My first to not make it ever :(

    They're in Ecothrive Coco Lite Mix and I gave their first feed at 6 days. 500ml Dutch Pro Autoflower Grow A + B Soft Water @ .5ml/L and Calmag @ .5ml/L

    Lights gradually lowered from 44 inches to 36 and sitting pretty now. Need to run both LED panels 24/0 to keep temps and humidity in check @ 26c and 70 RH

    Week 3 update:

    26°C and 65 RH constant.

    Mephisto Grapey Walter Day 13


    Bakery Seed Co. Sour Lemon Tart Day 13


    What I thought was another Grapey Walter but now believe is a Sour Lemon Tart Day 11 (mix up when 1 died)


    Group Shot - Along with 2 Blueberry Shortcakes Day 8 by Bakery Seed Co. and another Sour Lemon Tart Day 3.


    Not set up any of the autopots yet and upped feed to .5ml/L Calmag and 1ml/L Dutch Pro A+B Soft Water. Turns out I was sent original not autoflower feed by mistake (ebay vendor not Dutch Pro). Can't see any difference in their nutritional values on Dutch Pro site anyway

    Hi folks (@archie gemmill , @bushmasterar15 ) - we're off to the races with these future beauties: :toke:


    Hi folks, its been a week since my bean-drop posts in the various Grow Battle Journals. So here's an update on the kids competing in the General GOTY (@archie gemmill).

    This is Day 6 [​IMG] since sprouting. They're currently on a heat mat, under a humidity dome and being lit by two AutoCobs. Very lite feeding with RO water and a couple of drops of Roots Excellerator. :biggrin:
    here's my Week1 update for the General Grow Battle, a few days later than I planned since I was hoping to see some recovery from the frying that I gave them. This is my 1st time using CobShop autocobs from the very beginning of a grow. They were doing OK until I gave an early morning misting and put the plastic humidity dome back over the tray. I reckon the combination of magnification from the plastic dome in concert with the lights probably being too close was just too much. All five babies got severely burned. One subsequently died, and I'm not confident that the others with survive much less thrive.

    Three days ago I dropped a few more seeds as a replacement. They popped up today. Good thing, they'll be needed.


    In the meantime, I'll just "solider on" and see what happens. It could well be that choosing a plant going forward from day 30 may be very easy ... lol.

    Ok then, let me post this little gem. She popped her head up with a 50% of the cap leaves each, bleached.



    I watered her with a drop/pint of CalMag . Supported as she wanted to lean.


    Exotic Seeds Blue Monkey

    Week 2 from germ

    Transplanted from Solo cup to 3 gallon grow bag yesterday.
    Had several roots sticking thru bottm of cup did lose some tips
    Soaked coco with plain phed water before transplanting

    Healthy growth on her so far.


    General Baffle Update
    Week 2
    Having super high humidity. She hasn't needed any feeding or plain water.
    Growing large, she reminds me of a Heavyweight.


    General Battle- Exotic Seeds, Blue Monkey
    Week 3

    Fed half strength, calmag, nitrogen & Megacrop.
    High RH, 85% est. avg. with low temps, 78f est. avg. tent temp

    Looks as if it needs more nitrogen.
