SAFC 4x4 Grow Tents: My Electric Blue Sticky Dickie
I have been excited about this SAFC grow for months! Ever since @crispywannabe suggested “Size Matters” for the theme! We decided to do the Biggest and Smallest Auto flowers for a side challenge, and it is really the first time we have done something quite like this. I am very excited for the plants that I and everyone else will grow! I hope we nurture the spirit of collaboration along with them!
So, once we have decided on the theme and the side challenge, Homegrown cannabis company steps up to offer seeds to the grow leaders and for giveaways! They sent some strains that we could select from and I wrote back to ask which of the selected strains they would recommend for growers wanting to “grow the biggest auto”. Our guy at HGCC sends back a list of 4 strains and @jordanj posted them to for us to review. I see that “Sticky Dickie” is on the list… I decided to make a joke and wrote that “I don’t think I will grow Sticky Dickie. Like, trying to grow the biggest sticky dickie just doesn’t sound appropriate”. So of course, @n-grower says, “Just because you said it, i GOTTA grow the sticky dick now”. SO that is how most of the steering committee and the grow leaders ended up all trying to grow big sticky dickies! The jokes are sure to carry on throughout the grow!
And yes, right off the bat, my Sticky dickie did not grow! I had to grab a second sticky dickie on the 22nd. The second dickie is starting to grow!
Also on the list was Electric Blue. It seemed like a good strain to pair with Sticky Dickie. The electric Blue got out to an early start, but stalled a bit in her jiffy. I plan to pot her up and get her some better lighting today.
Day 1: Seeds Get Wet
Day 2-3: Electric Blue Takes the Lead
Day 6: The Dickie is late!
These two girls will go into a small 2x2 tent which has not arrived yet, but should be here soon. After my SOG grow comes down in about 5 weeks, I will break down that tent (2x4) and set up the 4x4 for these two. I am not sure if the timing is really going to work out for that, but hey, we don’t call these things “grow challenges” for nothing!
Hope you are all off to a wonderful SAFC! Happy to be growing with you! GROWER LOVE!!!
On Saturday May 6th I potted up into #1 air-pots
both plants, but especially the electric blue on the left suffered calmag issues which were compounded by unintentional low pH. But they seemed immediately happy with the pot up. Here they are on Sunday
Today is Wednesday and I just gave the girls their first trim. Blue was on 6th node and has grown well despite looking acid burned. I went ahead and topped her!
My Stickey Dickie is growing well too but she is a few days younger. I’m not going to think too much about that sentence. She'll get topped in a couple days.
I cut the top off my Sticky Dickie!
She loved it! This is 6 hours later
Keep growing Sticky Dickie and I’ll do it again!!!
Yesterday was transplant day! Girls moved up to #3 air pots. The both have been growing well for the last week or so in the #1 airpots.
I had to set up a second saucer in the small tent. Hopefully they will continue to fit in there for a couple more weeks while my other girls ripen.
Next step is the second topping. Coming soon!
