Started these girl’s flower cycle on 12/26/22. Starting week 5 now.

• Platinum Punch - Thirsty girl. Uses probably 25% more feed/water than the others. This is the only strain in this run that I have previous experience with, and I knew she was going to stretch like crazy into flower so I had to employ some bending and manipulating of branches to keep a proper distance to the light. I know this strain finishes *purple af* so it’s exciting to see the beginnings of this already. I have a good feeling that she is going to be the winner again when it comes to bag appeal and yield.

• Platinum Chunk - She was the last plant to show signs of flowering, however stretched quite a bit early on. This plant shares a parent with the PP plant so this does not surprise me. It also is showing signs of turning purple already as well so that’s cool. Hopefully she finishes strong as well.

• Zkittlez - This plant is growing the most consistent colas out of the lot. Looks to be about 10 main tops on this plant, all pretty much equal to each other. So far she is stacking well.

• Biscotti - Very short and stocky plant. Looks to want to grow laterally rather than stretch upward during early flower. I have a feeling this plant will put up some chunky colas which is exciting. Very tight internodal spacing.

• THC Bomb - This plant is quite sparse after pruning the smaller branches. It seems to want to devote all its energy to its main colas and did not grow sturdy side branches. Looks like the remaining branches will produce well though. This plant showed some early signs of nutrient burn, so I skipped a feeding (on all plants) and opted for a watering instead. I may withhold some feed from this plant again if it looks the same in a few days but since I caught it early it already seems to be resolving itself.

• Apple Fritter - This poor girl… After already having to replanted 10 days late, it was also burned by the heater and was noticeably stunted. Fortunately the remaining healthy and strong branches look to be bearing good fruit for what it’s worth. This plant had to be boosted up to help even out the canopy but now gets appropriate light compared to the others.

Hopefully will update more frequently going forward. Happy cultivating growmies!

Grow Questions
Greenandstinky42069 week 0 started grow question 3 months ago
Seedling died after not being able to open seed shell.
Anyone have advice on seeds that can’t kick their shells after germination? I wanted to try to help split them open with tweezers but didn’t want to harm the baby seedling inside.

Thank you to everyone who answered! Makes sense to keep the shell saturated to help it loosen up since I assume that’s what happens naturally in the soil. Ive had mixed (~75%) success rate manually trying to help remove the shell since I’ve started growing but I definitely agree with the growmie who said it’s genetic. Gushers just seems to be a hard one to germinate because of it’s small and thicc shell.

I've never ended up damaging anything - if it doesn't come off after 24h from emerging, spray a little water on it and if next day it's still stuck, spray it again and then try to carefully loosen it up or remove it like an hour later.

Spritz the seed shell with water every hour or so until it falls off.
The water softens the shell and helps the plant just enough to get rid of it.
Trying to do it manually can cause unexpected damage too easily in my experience, which involves 100s and 100s of seedlings in close to 40 years of cultivation.
