Hi folks,
This grow comes to you from the 44th parallel in Canada, where for this first time in my life, this grow will be legal. Decided after a decade or more away from journaling that I should get back at it.

Selected my genetics to suit the moist climate here in central Ontario. HSO had some interesting strains that caught my eye. This years crop will consist of 707 Headband and Mango Sapphire.

Seeds were added to paper towel at 2pm on March 30th. Below are the notes on the selected pheno’s based on seed appearance.

707 Headband
1 - small seed, spotted all around - top left
2 - largest seed, dark shell - right
3 - mid sized, black bottom - bottom left

Mango Sapphire
1 - mid sized, orangish bottom, spotted - top
2 - mid sized, pale with white bottom - left
3 - largest seed - dark, light top, brown bottom - right

When the times comes, I’ll be using Elemental Nutrient System, which is a “soon to be newly commercialized”, natural salt based nutrient system that I’m familiar with.

I’ll be setting these up/starting with 4 x 85w 5500k + 2 x 23w CFL’s. They did me well to start last year’s crop so I expect the same with these. Combined I get 22,000 lumens in a bit less then 6 sq’. This area of my basement is lovelngly know as the nursery. When it’s nice outside, I supplement with the real deal. Aim is to eventually go into 15gal pots. Those are yet to be determined. I’m doing my research on some cloth smart pots, we’ll see.

Enjoy, and stay along for the ride, you’re sure to see some monsters.

03/31 (Day -2) - all seeds had cracked by 8am this AM. I let them hand in their containers till after dinner. They were all placed in their respective pre-labeled cups and topped with a small ziplock bag. I find this helps when they’re young. I’ll keep them tented for as long as possible.

I expect to see them breach the surface by Tuesday

They were moved to the nursery today at 9:30pm. Since they are in cups, I only have 1 side of the lights set up. That’s a good thing since the other bulbs are on order. Wintertime causality

————————————————————————

04/01 (Day -1) - received and installed the 2 missing 85w bulbs. Cups are now under the full 386w nursery lighting. They will remain here till around the 3rd weekend in May.

No signs of life yet, but expect I’ll be waking up to at least a few kids reaching for the sun.

————————————————————————

04/02 (Day 0) - I think I’ll take to editing my weeks rather then comment when I need to. I guess the old ‘forum’ style is what I was used to.

As of writing this, 4/6 have broken ground. I noticed one carried her helmet on the way up. I then later noticed a tap root. Crap, is she growing upside down? Nope, there’s the stem. Well turns out we have a pair of twins!

Removed the shell casing, and separated the plants. The twin comes from the 707 #2 pheno, so she’ll be closely watched for, well... ever. We’ll give the runt a few days to see what we have.

————————————————————————

04/05 (Day 3) - busy with work this week and have been letting the ladies stretch their legs. Mango’s are looking good and healthy. Might have a problem with 707 #1 as she’s not bending towards the light at all. Only 4 will go in the ground to meet regs, but I like having the choice of seeing them grow for a more then a month before selection. I might have my hand forced with the 707s. Considering popping the other 2 seeds to ensure I have 2 good pheno’s, but I’m gonna sleep on it.

————————————————————————

04/06 (Day 4) - woke up to a pleasant surprise. 707 #1 turn upwards and has a small set of Primary fans. I did move them closer to the lights last night, which I forgot to mention which might have helped. Will monitor the runt of the crop and see how she responds from here.

————————————————————————

04/09 (Day 7) - quick update. I know this week is a bit long, but I never count germination as part of my veg cycles. Today is the last day of week one. No plant pics, but I did decide to pop the remaining 707 Headband seeds. Pheno #1 and #3 are struggling compared to #2. Although #4 and #5 will be a week behind the rest, if they are anything like #2 they should surpass the others in no time. Gotta make sure we have the 2 best of each pheno come mid May

Grow Questions
sKitzO week 18 started grow question 3 years ago
I have recently noticed some small insects which I am having trouble identifying. No real noticeable damage, but any critter on my weed must be identified.

Anyone have experience with this insect? Any links which would confirm identification would be great. Pic on week 18

Hey that is an aphid. Definitely want to get rid of them asap. Here is a link that will help you identify pests in the future. Hope this helps.
