    I got provided with some test seeds from @RoyalQueenSeeds thank you guys! :thumbsup:

    My intention is to test this strain out simply growing it with my regular DWC setup in my grow cabinet sized 60cm x 100cm = 0,6m2 with GrowNorthern HS1 -light (perhaps 2 at the generative cycle) and Remo Nutrients as nutrients.

    Unfortunately I as I got this seed started (Royal Creamatic) for germination at 24th of Dec, I forgot to check on her yesterday completely as I was so busy with my work and this morning I noticed this very leggy and pale poor little baby who has spent what must be entire day outside her shell without light. Not the best start but lets see if I can nurture her to proper health from here on out.

    Let's call it her Day 1 now. Pale leggy one :haha:

    pH 6.3
    EC 0.26

    Feed: VeloKelp 1,5ml per litre

    DAY 03

    pH 6.2
    EC 0.26
    RH 52 %
    T 25,4 C

    Light distance from the seedling 42 cm

    Our little one has recovered very well and she is now pushing some root. Very nice healthy green on her and seem she is quite vital.

    My setup is as follows:

    Grow space:
    60cm x 100cm x 200cm (DxWxH) = 0,6 m2
    (walls done with Orca grow film)

    Lights:
    Grow Northern HS1 (I plan to use 2 x HS1 on the generative cycle with this one, totalling in 150w of wattage)

    Reservoir:
    GHE aeroponic system tank modified to be just DWC tank. I use 2" tray and 9.6 lpm airpump with 4 airstones. I start with 28 litres of water and after the roots have developed enough, I lower the volume to 21 litres. There is a robust plastic tray mounted to the bottom to protect from any water accidents.

    Nutrients and additives:
    Remo Nutrients (Micro, Grow, Bloom, MagNifiCal, VeloKelp, AstroFlower & Nature's Candy)
    Advanced Nutrients Voodoo Juice (Beneficial bacteria product)
    Canna Cannazym (Enzymeproduct to help keep the roots clean)

    Air movement:
    Carbon filter and exaust fan (280m3/h)
    Oscillating fan

    PICS:

    My DWC is just so simple as it gets, basically a large reservoir with a lid that holds a tray with ability to empty the solution out and put new solution in.Then just applied an airpump with 4 airstones to it to oxygenate the solution and the roots.

    DAY 08

    pH 6.3
    EC 0.63
    RH 52 %
    T 23,6 C


    Light distance 40 cm

    Feed (ml per litre):
    Essentials Silicone Plus 1,5ml
    MagNifiCal 0,75 ml
    Micro 0,75 ml
    Grow 0,75 ml
    VeloKelp 1 ml

    Did a reservoir change yesterday as the plant is starting to grow. Plan is to bump up the feed progressively each week until the plant makes an impact to the reservoir. She is getting more leaf mass and the stalk is getting stronger now. So far a very nice healthy green plan with decent performance, despite the rough start. Promising.

    DAY 16

    pH 6.1
    EC 0.78
    RH 49 %
    T 24,8 C


    Light distance to the plant 38cm

    Quick update time. She is growing now rapidly and developing a rather interesting shape. I am specially intrigued about her very unusual stalk, as if some damage happened to it at some point. Look at that! Getting dark with the leaves but no nute burns. Definately at the peak of what she can handle as far as nutrients goes. pH stable. Everything is golden. Took some of the lower leaves out already.

    DAY 23

    I didn't take any data of the reservoir as of yet but I will update that on the weekend as I cook up another patch of solution. All seems good with her, did a little defoliation to see if I can trigger a bit better growth for the side branches. This is a very interesting grow to make with genetics of Royal Creamatic since it has been claimed by the breeder that she will mainly just grow one big main cola and that's it. This is what I want to put to test and that's why I am not doing any LST, topping or whatnot.

    If this strain proves itself to be quick grower with decent yield compared to the finishing time with medical qualities and pleasant aroma, I think I would be teased to grow this regularly since I am a so lazy with trimming.

    This stalk is developing quite oddly but it is getting stronger from the very bottom also. Very interesting.

    Thanks! This is very interesting strain to try out and so far she has been super smooth about it!
