NYGC Coco: Cult Classics Coco Craziness

I loved growing Unicorn Sherbert so much that I want to try it again along with two other strains from Cult Classics!

Scuffed one seed each of Unicorn Sherbert 🦄🍧, Deleted Scene ❌🎬, and Bomb Shoes 💣👟 and pre-soaked in warm distilled water for 2 hours. All seeds sunk, so I know they got wet inside. At midnight eastern time, I dropped the seeds into warm Rapid Rooters and put them under dome on the heat mat.

I used to use the paper towel method, but my arthritic old hands are too clumsy. After breaking a couple of radicles trying to plant them and breaking a couple of tops off trying to deal with helmet heads, I switched to using rapid rooters. So far, 100% germination, no broken radicles, far fewer helmet heads, and none where I was tempted to do something stupid!

Next step is prepping fresh coco, and sterilizing the grow tent.

Bomb Shoes is sprouting this morning, and looks like Deleted Scene may not be far behind!

And it’s Bomb Shoes 💣👟 in the lead, with Unicorn Sherbert 🦄🍧 close behind, and Deleted Scene ❌🎬 bringing up the rear. Deleted Scene had a bit of a stumble when her radicle was heading the wrong way and trying to push the seed out of the rooter. Flipped her right way around and she is off!

Oops! I forgot to turn the light back on after turning it off for a photo and the sprouts went looking for it! Also, the Deleted Scene ❌🎬 is finally above ground.

And the next day everyone is photosynthesizing and it is clear I need to do something  about those gangly girls.

So into the solo cups they go, burying part of the stem in the buffered and rinsed coco.

And here they are tonight! Not much above ground growth, but I’m sure they are expanding their roots into that lovely new lightly-fertilized coco.

Wow! I seem to have neglected this journal. After forgetting to turn the light in that time, I also accidentally had the light on too bright/close! It toasted the littlest seedling, so the Deleted Scene has been cut from the grow. How droll.

I moved the plants into the tent with the PhotonTek SQ300W Pro at 25% (around 300umol) for a while.

The light is now at 50% and 50cm which I measured at a max of approximately 600 umols at the canopy in my space. Tomorrow I will pot them up into air-pots!

Potted up into 8.4L #3 air pots last night and mostly setup the auto-fertigation. Jack’s 1+1 at 1100 EC.  Now I just have to wash the reservoir and fill it!!

Last night I reprogrammed the autofertigation timer to match my veg lighting cycle: at lights on, and every 4 hours after that until lights out. Unfortunately, I made a teeny tiny mistake and set the 4:00 fertigation to start at 3:00. That would have been fine except I set it to end at 4:00:14. So instead of 14 seconds, it went for an hour and 14 seconds! Check out the wrack line!

That basically flushed the entire reservoir (about 50 liters) through the pots. Once my drain bucket filled, the pump shut off, and the nutrient solution backed up into the drain tray. The leaves are a bit droopy from the high RH and low oxygen levels in the coco. While it is “nearly impossible” to overwater coco, this is how you do it: flush to saturation, then leave the bottom of the pot sitting in several inches of liquid so the coco can’t drain and remains above field capacity.

Looking at the RH level, you can see just when it happened!

Cannabis Grow A1A2AD5F A924 4E40 9B05 1A416B115015

Glad I checked on them this morning! I’ll stop in again at lunch time and see how they have recovered. Shouldn’t be long.

Plants recovered from the flood just fine. The Bomb Shoes 💣👟 has been topped 3 times now and is ready to be trained to stakes. The Unicorn Sherbert 🦄🍧 is still a bit behind, and I hope to do the final topping today. A couple of days I upped the Photontek SQ300W Pro to 75% so the canopy is now getting 700umols. The lower fan leaves are a bit stressed by the increase, but the new leaves are handling it fine. I probably won’t increase to 100% until after I flip.

Third mainline topping for the Unicorn Sherbert 🦄🍧 and starting to train the quarter branches out on the Bomb Shoes 💣👟 !!

Strict mainlines always look so sparse to me, but they focus all the growth on just the 8 mains. I love it!

Cannabis Grow 62DF6AE9 F2AB 41C7 8991 6F43F427C6CC

I only had to pull a couple of the lowest shade-adapted leaves after upping the light the other day.

Cannabis Grow 02B04E06 D718 435D 9790 3CC730019B1E

I will keep vegging these a little longer until all eight branches on each are developing well. The flip, and during the stretch, train those final branches to more stakes and keep up with pruning off lower branches during the stretch!

Looking forward to the part of the grow whennI can unleash the full photonic power of the Photontek SQ300W Pro and watch the flowers explode! ☀️ 💥

Oh, and that broken branch on the Unicorn has healed well. That side is growing a bit more slowly, but she’ll do fine. I’ll take the grafting tape off soon to keep from strangling the branch.

The branch I snapped on the Unicorn Sherbert 🦄🍧 looks fully healed and I removed the grafting tape before it started strangling the branch.

Cannabis Grow 149BF26C 3EF5 428C 90DB 5B3AC50A0B7E

All 8 branches are now extending on the unicorn and are big enough on the Bomb Shoes 💣👟 to train each to their own stake.

The plants are filling about half of the tent footprint, so last night I changed the timing on the light and fertigation. Lights went off 2 hours earlier this morning, and will turn on 4 hours later this evening. Yes, I did mess up on the fertigation timer AGAIN, but caught it before it flooded the tent this time. I needed to bring the output EC down anyway.

In early bloom now and I hope they have stopped stretching because I am out of room! If they grow any taller I will need to move the filter and exhaust fan outside the tent.

They kept stretching and I was out of room to raise the light. I thought about moving the exhaust fan and carbon filter outside the tent, but that requires putting supports on top of the tent and getting a stepladder and working with heavy objects over growing plants and I just know I would drop the carbon filter and smash my lovelies, so I decided if I can’t make the light taller, I’ll make the plants shorter. So I scropped almost all the stems. 

What’s scropping? Short for “super-cropping,” scropping is a high stress training method where stems are slightly crushed and bent 90° with the end supported/tied down. This lowers the top of the canopy and results in each bud site on the branch growing into more, smaller inflorescences instead of one big cola.

Here is the before:

And here’s what the plants looked like a week or so before harvest. I was having trouble with humidity and a return of powdery mildew, so I started stripping g off fan leaves from the bottom.
