My first grow! Not really sure what I'm doing, but this seems like a great way to get started. I've just dropped 2 seeds in water and placed the jar in an incubation box kept at 78 degrees.

I checked the seeds after about 20 hours, tapped them and they sank. Also noted that the seeds had started to sprout. I poured them onto a paper towel on a plate. I covered the plate with another plate and put it in a dark cupboard above the fridge. I think it's a bit warm in there.

  1. So it was a very busy day yesterday at work, and with life. I wasn't able to check the paper towel at all in 23 hours since wetting it. But it worked out just fine and both seeds had between 1/2” to 1/4" tap root growth. I read that is the size to shoot for.  I also, of course didn't have time to pick up any solo cups, so I scrounged around and found a styrofoam cup. Bigger than a solo cup though. I don't know how many oz. It holds, but more than a solo cup for sure. I guess I'm out. But I was thinking that maybe a styrofoam cup may insulate better anyway so meh. I put some holes in it and filled with happy frog/ ocean 50/50 mixed and planted 1 seed in this and the other was planted in a 3 gallon fabric pot with the same mix. I wetted the soil before planting. Then placed both in the 2x2 tent with a vipar xs1500 light about 14 inches away turned down to 40%. So, this isn't actually my first ever grow. But my first more educated grow. A couple of weeks ago, when my seeds first came in, I was to excited to get growing and tossed some seeds in and didn't take care of them very well. There is one still alive from the 4 that were planted 😑 . It's a green crack auto that is looking pretty sad, and still in the tent. I don't have high hopes for the little gal.

Here are pics from last night. The plant on the right is the green crack that I'll probably move out later.

checked up of the tent last night and noticed no difference. still waiting on the leaves to show. i did mist a bit of water on the soil surface to keep it moist, but not much, and did not water the soil. I pressed a finger in the soil and it was still damp. I did get a camera set up and is currently taking a time lapse set for a week. I'd really love to see the sprouts rise up! I love seeing videos of that. I'll check in tomorrow.

Nothing new to log. Still waiting of the green to show. Hoping I didn't do anything wrong.  Ordered a humidifier today and it should be here by Monday. I did notice the humidity is low, between 20 and 30.

     The brains damage has finally broke the surface. The one in the 3 gallon fabric pot rose hours before the styrofoam cup. I've placed clear plastic party cups on them to help with humity, not sure if that's what pushed them. Doesn't matter though, I'll continue to use them until the hum machine I've ordered get here next week. I'll upload pics later this evening. 

One negitive about the clear plastic party cups is time lapse through them isn't very clear. 😑 . Oh well, I'll keep it rolling for now. Going to pick up some perferated angle iron today and zip tie it to one of the vertical corner poles to have a nice flat surface to use for mounting a camera. Right now it's closed to a ratchet cord and not very stable anyway.

I feel like I may be obsessed. I keep checking on the plants all the time, I cant really see any growth. It makes me nervous.  I did water them today. they seemed dry, so they were given 2 cups of  water for the 3 gallon pot, and about 3/4 of a cup for the Styrofoam.   It didn't seem like it could hold more than that.

Today I actually felt like there's been some good growth. At least on one of the two brains damage. Very exciting. 😀

Unfortunately though, I managed to not save the time lapse I was working on today. Honest accident. While at work on a break, I was checking up on the tent with the wifi cam (wyze), and decided to stop the time lapse and watch the file, then start a new one. Well, just a reminder for the future, the file can ONLY be viewed if connected to the wifi network that the camera is connected to lol. I had no idea since I can stream live video to my cell wherever I am. Anyway, I've learned and started a new lapse.

I haven't updated in a couple days, but here it is. One is doing great! The one in the styrofoam seems to be stunted. I have no clue what to do with her.

A side note, the wierd green crack is starting to do better. Still just watching her to see what happens

I repotted the stunted brains into the pot with the sickly green crack. I think the styrofoam cup wasn't drawing well. It was moist lower in the cup and I hadn't watered in a while, and it was very limited. Also, I'm thinking that light may have been going through the white cup.

The other brains is doing pretty good though! Well...I'm not really sure as this is my first real try at growing. I did a bit of reading about lights here in the article section and I think I have a better understanding. I've lowered my light to a better level. About 18 inches from the top of the larger plant. Hopefully it grows faster. I will be keeping an eye on it to see if she gets to hot.

Today would actually be day 18. I logged into my journal a couple of days early to check things out and it started a little early, lol. I'm only focusing on the one brains damage that is going ok...as far as I can tell.

I still have the light lowered to the same distance. About 18 inches. The light is at 100 percent. She is looking a bit thirsty at them moment, and I plan on giving her 2 cups of water here in a bit. I have the light scheduled to 18/6 to try to combat the heat build up in the tent. It's much hotter temps outside now, and the tent is reflecting that with highs in the daytime at around 85 in the tent. So I've put the dark cycle from 12pm to 6pm to help reduce the heat. The exhaust fan is still pumping at max to try to suck out the hot air. I'm not going to run an ac in the spare room that the tent is living in. But the house does have central air set to 74. Let me know what you folks think. How does it look for day 18? Generally speaking. Im pretty sure plants can look much different depending on genetics and so on. Oh yeah. I am running a humidifier to try to keep it up around 50 but honestly, I'm at work all day and often times it runs out before I can refill it. I may need one with a bigger res. Anyway, it ends up hanging more around 30 percent h, I'm sure the exhaust being on max isn't helping me retain it.😆
