Purple genetics---as opposed to Purple "labeling"---always have a miracle effect for me.

Too long of a wait.  (..As in Decades)  Super stoked and grateful to be able to grow some cannabis!  I planted (3) feminized seeds--all popped really fast.  This is my first-ever grow, and as such only fair to report failures & successes.  I also scarified a couple of 10yr old seeds.  They experienced germination crib-death, which was a little bit expected due to their age.  Luckily i still have (2) seeds left, hoping i can get one to go for some clones.

Day 8.  Love the purple hues

Day 12.  Sure Mendocino Purple had some serious tap roots.  Why?  Because i totally BUTCHERED (due to lack of skill) my transplant from black solo-cup into final container/tote.  I was almost in tears to see the dirt at very bottom of old solo cup full of roots that had been ripped-apart and left behind.  Within 24 hrs. of my lame-ass transplant, my girl had prepped-up was looking happy.

Point of note:  Since my first-grow was concerned about over-watering, so used DIY Earthbox (SIP).  Also didn't want to be mixing and matching nutrients, so i chose a "Living Soil" mix and will use only Reverse Osmosis water (luckily, store has ph 6.7 out of their filter!) for my first run.

As part of that process placed organic barely mulch and then top-dressed EM-1 treatment.  Next will introduce Gro-Kashi fertilizer.  (Organic pro-biotic fermentation process... more less)

Day 11


Notice the yellow discoloration on fan leaf?  Also notice the Curl happening--or just me being picky?  I increased light spacing on theory was too close and causing leaf burn/curl.  Subsequent new growth seemed happy about new distance from their 'Sun'...  Also notice how the bottom fan leaf had trouble developing its proper leaf patter on surface?  Low humidity issue?  Any thoughts more than welcome.

My youngest at 14 days, Purple Cookies, seems to have the most "stretch" so far despite being 4-6 days behind her sisters.
