This is my Starter recipe I give at 1 week. Notice there are absolutely no fertilizers in any of these products. All the food my plants need are already in the soil read to go, I just need to get my microbial herd started so they can help the plant convert those minerals into what the plant needs. All this was brewed for 72 hours adding a tsp of Molasses every 24 hours, then mixed into 10 gallons of water and each plant was given 1 gallon in a 7.5 gallon pot.
These were germinated using the paper towel method, which was my first time germinating this way and produced 100% roots at 36 hours. I did, however, lose my ripleys og at 4 days. This caused me to drop a new seed - the White Stomper (Walter White x Sour Stomper - Mephisto Genetics.) It is 10 days behind the others on germ date.
So the following germinated on 12/12
3 - Alien v. Triangle
2 - Hubba Bubba Smelloscope
2 - Skystomper
2 - StarDawg
1 - White stomper (Germ Date 12/22)
Of all of these strains, if I had to pick one to be most excited about, it would be Alien v. Triangle. The potency and size reports I've gotten from other growers have put this one on a pedestal as the center of many gardens. However, the Skystomper, a cross between Skywalker OG and Sour Stomper, reaaaally has me interested to see what she can do. With those two parents, anything could happen.
I am also very excited to see what the StarDawg from Fast Buds does in the bigger pot. She yielded well in a 5gallon and she was in everyones top 3 out of last run and was a few peoples favorite. In my experience bigger pots does not only provide more yield, but a healthier bud structure and firmer more fragrant buds. The plants really seem to do well in the tall pots.
So buckle up. Lets get the winter run underway.
