NYGC Desserts: It’s never too cold for Gelato!
Even though all three beans popped, only two made the journey towards the light. I blame it on human error. Haha! These were transplanted in their Jiffy pods into 10 oz. of my basic soil mix. It is coco+perlite, organic lobster compost, earthworm castings and s bit more perlite. So far they look like normal seedlings.
So here we are on day 12. I haven’t shared much because as we all know seedlings grow slowly. However, now one is showing some vigor. The other is as well, but needs to step it up. I will be having a pep talk with her soon.
So I attempt to germinate three and I get two. One look promising the other, not so much. Then the promising one gives me a three leaf node with no shoots. The runt as you would say could be my only lovely lady. Only time will tell.
So no here we are sports fans. 18 days into our grows. I thought that germinating three beans would be the greatest of odds for success. Well, that isn’t what Mother Nature has in store for this guy. One germinated but didn’t sprout. One is a runt, though I don’t say it in front of her. And the third has basically topped itself at the first node. Of course there are pics of my gals to follow. Back to the grow. Seed #3 is healthy and in there for the long haul. Seed #1 was about to be a casualty of bad genetics. But then I looked at the drain holes of her container to just see. And there were three VERY healthy roots. This has saved her. I will mainline her only node. This could be the “Recovery” of the NYGC!
It seems like yesterday we were all dropping beans or cutting clones. Now here it is 20 days into the NYGC. Some growers have magnificent ladies that any of us would be very proud to display. And there are some, like myself, that have high hopes and the experience of past successful grows, that are just hoping our ladies make it to flower. I have a runt and a, let’s just say challenged, little sprout. I don’t know about you, but I definitely still have hope.
Anticipation is in the air. It has been almost a month since the beans dropped. They went from little cups to 1 quart containers. Now we move on to 6 quart pots. This is a big day because we get to see exactly how our gals are doing. We get to see their roots. Let’s take a look...
