Hi & Welcome.... This will be my Journal for the " HSO - Grow Off"

First, A big thank you to Humboldt Seed Organization for providing the test seed.

I am looking forward to this so much.

:thanks:


For this "Grow Off" I have decided I will be growing the "Dedoverde Haze",the more I read, the more I like, a really interesting and highly reviewed plant.

She will be sharing my tent (photo below), with two "Round-2 Grow Battle" Girls.

On occasion it maybe necessary to show photographs off the full tent, including the other plants sharing it, but I will try and keep this Journal to the HSO "Dedoverde Haze"

If anyone is interested, a normal tent setup/startup for me (my goto setup), is detailed below.

Equipment Setup

I have a few other "grow tools" in my cupboard that can be called upon if needed.

I always like testing out new stuff... or improvising bits and bobs to make something work how I want it to.....

So don't be surprised if I vary from the above during a grow.

Today is Germ Day

A single HSO "Dedoverde Haze" seed was placed into a shot glass, with Ph'd water today.

Germ.jpg


The shot glass has been placed in a warm dark place, awaiting the seed to crack and a tail appear.

The seed will then be potted into a clear "Solo Cup" . She will remain in this cup until I judge her to have sufficient root development to enable me to transplant her into her final resting place (an Autopot with Airdome.), without inflicting to much shock...

Pull up a chair, roll a fat one, enjoy the ride.

Germination Update

@St. Tom

After 48 Hrs soak the seed had cracked and a small tail emerged.

The germinated seed was potted into a clear solo cup, sifted canna pro soil,extra perlite, charge, Plant Magic Mycorrhizae, Ph'd water.

Placed in a heated propergator with humidity dome.

Using 1 x 55w AutoCob for light.

5 Days later we have New Life. Happy with that.

Update

The first seedling looked to be taking a while to put on any growth.

It may be that this strain takes a while to get a hold (developing roots). However I was not happy as she had a deformed leaf.

9 Days Plant 1.jpg


She may just be a slow starter, but, I decided to germinate a reserve seed.

So 4 Days ago I popped another seed straight into soil and put her in my propagator.

She looks healthy enough and has developed faster than the first one, so now I have a choice.

:pass:

Week 2 Update

Plant 1 has been in soil for 17 Days and is ready to be potted into her final home.

To date, all seedlings have been getting plain Ph'd water. Under a single 55w AutoCob in my propagator.

I will be potting all my seedlings into Autopots with Airdomes.

17 Days plant 1.jpg


I have decided that clear starter pots are the way to go, you can see the root development and have a better indication of when to transplant

Here is the 17 day old "Dedoverde Haze Auto's Roots", I am getting her ready for the move.

17 Days Roots plant 1.jpg


The backup seed is also doing OK. I will be growing both out (fingers crossed), with the help of the Canna Gods.

She is 5 Days behind plant 1, but will soon make that up when she goes in the tent and gets a dedicated light.

Update

Today I transplanted both the H.S.O. "Dedoverde Haze" to their final home.

Using my Autopots with Airdomes, the Airdomes are just 50% covered with washed clay pebbles.

Air dome.jpg


I then mixed up my standard tried and tested soil mix.

Soil Mix 1.jpg


50% Canna Pro Soil, with 25% added Perlite & 25% added washed pebbles, some charge and some Plant Magic Oldtimers "Mycorrhizae"

Soil Mix 2.jpg


All mixed well and the Autopots filled.

Watered with Ph'd water and the seedlings were potted.

Plant 1 (the older of the two)
Plant 1 16th May 2019.jpg


Plant 2 (the backup seed)

They were transferred to the "shared" Grow Tent, each now under their own 55w Autocob.

And here they will remain for the duration of the grow.

Hand watering with ph'd water and a a dash of Mammoth P. This will continue until I turn on the Autopots / Airdomes next week sometime.
