PTGC Misfits: Purple Heart 1:1 & Afterglow

I started this grow prior to knowing about the contest. I just heard about the contest on a Podcast with Dr. Coco. I was going to flip the girls that day and decided to wait a week and a half so I can participate and learn. 

Here are the details:

Equipment: AC Infinity 2x4 tent, AC Infinity 6" fan with controller, AC Infinity oscillating fan and 2 AC Infinity T22 Iongrid LED lights. Home made CO2 generator from yeast, sugar and tomato.

Soil: 6 parts Build-a-soil Light, 3 parts Coco Coir/perlite mix and 1 part worm castings

Nutrients: Real Growers Grow Dots and Recharge with PH balanced RO water. 

Lighting regiment: 20/4 distance from plants 18" determined using Photone app. Intensity set to 70% for seedlings.

Temp: 84-86 lights on, 74-76 Lights off. Humidity 42%

8/15/22 Day 1: Seeds were soaked for 24 hours in Recharge @ 1 teaspoon per gal. (3 Gal pots were built and started watering with Recharge while seeding to get the Microbial party started).

8/16/22 Day 2: Seeds were split, transferred to paper towel soaked in recharge from day before. Placed in plastic bag and set on Heat mat set to Med.

8/17/22 Day 3: Within 24 hours I had 3/4" radicles. (pics) Planted into coco cups same soil mix, watered with Recharged PH'd RO water. 

8/19/22 Day 5: Both girls have broke the surface. The Purple Heart looks very heathy and strong. Afterglow has deformed Cotyledon leaves. Watered PH'd RO water only.

8/21/22 Day 7: Both girls developed first set of true leaves today. No longer a seedling! Watered with Recharged PH'd RO water. 

8/22/22 Day 8: Second set of true leaves today. Purple Heart is going to be a fast grower, already bigger that the Afterglow. (Perhaps Afterglow is under performing?) Watered PH'd RO water only

8/28/22  Day 14: 4 sets of true leaves. Probably way to early but transplanted both girls into their 3 Gal pots. Will help test hardiness of Genetics.

8/31/22 Day 17: leaves have double to tripled in sized have taken to transplant well. Purple Heart is twice the size of Afterglow. Watered with Recharged PH'd RO water. 

9/1/22 Day 18: Added AC Infinity Oscillating fan.

9/2/22 Watering every others day as needed indicated by soil moister meter. Recharge @ 1 Teaspoon per gal every other feeding.

9/10/22 Day 27: I am on vacation visiting dad for a week. Wife is watering plants for me. RO water only.

9/16/22 Day 33: Increased Light intensity to 100%

9/18/22 Day 32: Afterglow branches are growing straight up. LST applied to both plants to spread them out for better light penetration. Defoliated only required fan leaves, again for better light penetration.

9/19/22 Day 33: Added home made CO2 generator using RO water, yeast, sugar and blended tomato. (gives 1-2 bubbles per second. AC infinity oscillating fan is above plants. Tube from CO2 generator is above fan, this should draw and disperse CO2 to plants below. Purple Heart is at 12", Afterglow is at 9" in height.

Attached some photos but unfortunately the format is not compatible with the site.

9.27.22 Day 41: 

Veg for both plants are coming along great. Added Rice Hulls to the top of soil to try and keep the humidity in my pots.

Purple heart is currently at 17” in height and has taken to low stress training very well.

The After Glow remains short and squaty. Difficult to train the nodes want to shoot straight up instead of out. 

thanks for looking and have a great grow!

Happy Flip Day everyone!

Girls are coming coming along well. Afterglow has some type of genetic mutation. You can see in one of the pics there is a tiny leaf growing in the middle of some fan leaves. Has happened on 3-4. I have cut all of them because they get so big  they block all the light. It is going short and tight. I will try this one again later as I believe it was just a dud seed.

The Purple Heart is doing very well, happy and healthy.

10.5.22, 55 days, day 5 of flower. Grow dots are still kicking. Recharge is used ever other feeding. Did some light defoliation and installed the SCROG net. For todays feeding we did a worm castings extract to give the girls a jump start into flower.

Grow is growing great. The Afterglow has really turned out to be short and dense. Purple Heart continuing to stretch. Should have probably done some “snap-n-pop” but the whole idea freaks me out. And I can’t afford to loose a plant.

Girls are coming along nicely. Purple Heart stretched out nice, trained easy. The Afterglow, like sooooo many of my ex’s, is just plain difficult. Every node just wants to grow straight up. Cleaned them both up a little yesterday. Here are some pics of some of the flower development.

Girls are filling in nicely. Another 4-6 weeks. Yay for Christmas buds! 

The Afterglow is already starting to get frosty!

Good morning Growmies!

Well to my surprise, my dwarfed Afterglow is a day or two from harvest. I was really hoping she was going to bulk up but I guess not. I really wanted to try and play with the lights in flower like Rasta Jeff suggests and try 18/6 for 2 weeks to see if they would put on weight. Need to find my clip on lense to get you some good term picks.

Pushing the Afterglow hard these last few days. There are certainly no clear Trichomes  that I could see. 
Both plants seem to be perfectly happy back on the 18/6.

I will most likely harvest Afterglow by the weekend or at least the main stall that is getting about as amber as I like.

Afterglow harvest was small due to runting. What I did get looms and smells fantastic. 
Darkhorse gave a nice yield. Trichromes are fairly light on this one. Only time will tell if either are any good. Happy Harvest
