SAFC Mephisto: SAFC multi strain
Gonna be a tricky grow to manage, at least early on. Have 2 seedlings started in the tent now. My plan is to start 3-4 more and shuffle them outside if the weather permits soon enough. Once I can migrate plants I’ll be starting some more. SAFC will consist of 4 meph strains in soil. I will also be doing a “soil shootout” in search of and ideal medium for outdoor autoflowers.
all together I intend to have 9 autos outside this spring, some will be organic, some will get bottled nutes, really just an experiment/comparison.
Getting down to the wire here. With everything going on right now I’m a bit unprepared. Tomorrow I’ll be taking a trip out of town to a hydro shop that seems to be well stocked with soils and amendments. As of now I have some ocean forest, happy frog, and some locally sourced organic topsoil to blend. Grabbed a big 4 cu/ft bag of perlite and some lobster compost from coast of Maine to experiment with. Not as much as I’d like but should get me started.
Took a quick trip today to stock up on whatever I could get my hands on...I think it payed off. Got a bag of roots original, and roots lush which I’m told feeds for 8 weeks! Very curious about this, I’m told it’s a hot soil and not to put a seedling in so I’ll start in the original then a transplant around week 2. Was also given some freebies. Roots terp tea and hpk and aurora big swell and bloom.
With the unsteady weather here I will only be starting 2 plants on the 20th as I’ll have to wait to shuffle them outside and start more. There are 2 plants currently growing in the tent in coco and I’m expecting them to neglect social distancing rules.
the 2 strains I start will be an on the fly decision of the above mention Mephisto a beans.
So I had a small issue...long day at work and the rapid rooter housing the avt x 3bog dried up completely. Looks to be a fried seedling so I put another seed in paper towels today. As a precaution I went ahead and out the forum stomper in a seedling bag with roots organic original soil to keep it wet longer.
So some stuff is happening, forum stomper having a little trouble so I moved her away from the light a bit. Popped another avt x 3bog (top solo cup) and it’s moving along. Also the avt that looked fried and dried out looks like it might recover. It’s still standing and the taproot/stalk looks like it’s taking up water and trying to shed the membrane...may have to perform surgery. Also in the tent samsquanch og and 4 assed monkey growing in coco.
Haven’t posted much because as you can see, there’s not much to see. Precisely why I prefer coco. There moving slowly, should have given them more time before going in soils but they’ll get over it. I still plan to move them outside but even in the next 2 weeks temps will still struggle to reach the 60s with night temps around 40. Been a really strange year here for weather hopefully we get some warmer days.
