06-15-2021 - D55F - How is week 9 beginning on day 55 you ask?

[Walks away]

Anyway, rude and awful questions aside. My box is damp, I may need to defoliate Number 2, but I would like to let him fill out a little in flower first. Rudy is close to scoring a home-run. Threevieve looking good, and right. My box is damp, but the plants are happy. I am happy. HAPPY.

06-16-2021 - D56F - Don't ask questions I don't have answers for. Or, do, but expect to fork over much compensation as consideration for my answer

*Answers may be other than is expected, no refunds, get over it*

[Slowly ambles away]

I broke a piece of Rudy off while watering, will dry and try. Seemed very larfy, which I expected given the light (which was chosen based on thermal discharge). Upon observation, there were occasional amber trichomes. Threw the trim in the freezer. Threevieve gets much chonk by the day. Number 2 is diabolical in size, freaking, huge. This has been fun so far, and I'm giving Rudy this one more week. If he's couch-lock, so be it. They all got fish bone meal and water. Thoroughly enjoying this

06/17/2021 - D57F - I don't know...or do I?

[Ambles stage-left]

Rudy is at, I think the 85. Again, I'm not a foosball-cannabis-ientist! He does have a few amber trichomes on inspection, not many. Three is all shiny and beefier than Rudy. Just starting to amber, isn't she lovely? Number 2 [whips head and raises both eyebrows only inches from face] IS FREAKING EVIL. Massive, chonky, beautiful, growing a bagagillion pistils, he will earn respect through hard work.

[Insert Rob Lowe eyepatch reference as humor]

06/18/2021 - D58F - ....or like "Relue" or something? I know red and blue make purple, but blue and purple don't make purple. On this hill, I make my last stand!

[leaves hill to pee]

The plants are well. I have given them 2/3 their water tonight, with the other 1/3 in the AM. The sunshine is fake, but the green joy is real!

06/19/2021 - D59F - ...it was after all, a very judgemental colour. In the plants defense, I may have been naked.

[Walks back up hill, takes in view, decides this hill, like this gag, is old; judges life choice, shrugs]

Number 2 is beautiful, and when I build a house with some more dedicated rooms (and less Lerue lighting, new hill taken) all the better. Rudy is amber AF, at the 90? Threevieve still isn't at amber pistils yet, but she fills out much by the day. The water is free in the PDRB!

Grow Questions
Cannabis_Chris week 0 started grow question 2 months ago
When to make your move...to a larger grow container?
When is the best time to transfer a seedling to its destined growing medium? Do I do it at the first sign of leaves, or is it better to wait until a few sets have formed? Do I need to worry about root shock? Should I use plant food to encourage growth into the new medium?

I usually just let them go until I see healthy amount of roots coming out the bottom and move them into larger pots. (I always use air pots / smart pots though making it easier to judge root density) I like to go from riot plugs to 1L air pots, and then their final pot (3.6gallon air pots) adding some endomycorrhizal each transplant. endomycorrhizal seems to work really well and the plants don't seem to slow down at all with transplant. Don't see to much of a benefit to moving until roots actually need the space, plus it's easier to water smaller pots for the short time you can.

Cannabis is pretty hearty plant and doesn't need much coaxing. Roots will fill every nook and cranny it can find in the pot. I wouldn't add additional nutes unless plant is showing signs that it's actually hungry. Seedlings don't need much of anything to get rocking and rolling.

Good luck and happy farming! Wishing you a healthy bounty

Delayed cotyledons?
My first seedling doesn't seem to want to unfurl its cotyledons. Any ideas based on the attached picture in the skull planter?

First thing i would try is misting and raising humidity to 75 percent.

Is compost tea helpful in nutrient rich soil?
Soil blend notes nutrients for 30 days, should I avoid using a compost tea during those 30 days to avoid burn or lockout? The compost tea would be 3 tsps CoM Worm Castings and 1 tsp CoM Plant Food per gallon. I would water once per week in Veg only.

I see you just started your diary. Good thing about organic it's hard to burn your plants. I would suggest after day 28 start giving tea's. No need to do it any earlier. Best of luck on your grows.

Timing of flowers on 3 different plants (1 plant offset by a set of leaves)
If I have two plants with two sets of leaves going on three, and a runt (ruuuuddy....ruudddy....and so on) thatsjust coming into two, will they all still flower at the same time? All the same seed I believe, but Rudy shares a pot...Also, these are autos. Much thanks in advance.

Autos can start to flower anywgere from 3 weeks on. Autos are like lighting a fuse, you dont really have any control.
