Day 57, 11/4/2021: Seed 2 6.8; Seed 1 5.9. Reservoir: 6.2, adjusted to 6.6. Not feeling great today, so calling it an early night. Day 58: Seed 2 6.6; Seed 1 6.3. Reservoir refilled with about 4 gallons (15.2 liters) fish tank water supplemented with 25 ml FF tiger bloom, 16 ml cal-mag; pH...
Day 50, 10/28/2021: Bam!! Got my Sweet Gelato (Sweet Seeds) ordered today. My growmies are always, always buying seeds. One friend and I have been holding out, and like a fucking bobbit worm, I got the ones I've been waiting for today. :D Now I'm not sure if my next grow will be Skywalker or...

Day 43, 10/21/2021: Everything was pretty much the same as yesterday, with the exception of the reservoir pH. Probably because I didn't leave everything to mix for long enough to equilibrate.... and I also forgot to open the valve to actually water/feed the plants. (They're fine. I was getting...

Day 36, 10/14/2021: Filled another 4 gallons of water with cal-mag added. Increased cal-mag to 16 ml per 4 gallons (4 ml per gallon) because new growth still shows slight discoloration between the veins. Worked out a good system for measuring and transporting water using a garden cart, my...

Day 22, 9/30/2021: Things... got a little out of hand tonight hahaha. Seed 2 has gotten supertopped, not supercropped. (I'm so sorry, my girl.) Aside from that, the plant clips look like they'll work if we really keep on top of them--the rate the ladies are growing, the clips will either stunt...

Day 15, 9/23/2021: Both Seed 1 and Seed 2 were working on pushing out their fourth sets of leaves, so the growing tips were pinched off to break up the apical dominance and promote branching. (Pics were taken before clipping.) Seed 2 shows small signs of worsening damage (more of that...

Day 8, 9/16/21: Autopot valve from the system reservoir was found to have been left tightly closed this whole time. (I'm gonna do that part of the setup next time.) Dirt was dry and fluffy to the touch, but no wilting was observed. I started off with a fear of overwatering because most of my...
