NYGC Coco: Hazy Kush Green Bodhi
I scored these seeds in a raffle at a small festival, and decided the NYGC would be the perfect time to drop a couple. I've been reading about their genetics and this strain in particular, and am very excited for this run. I love a good kush, and my husband loves sativas, so hopefully this will be a great strain for both of us.
Dropped 2 seeds at about 1am. They are in a ramekin of water, closed up in a cupboard. When I start seeing signs of a tail or in about 24-36 hours, I'll transfer them to a damp paper towel. Fingers crossed for these ladies, and a good grow to all!
Yesterday midday, I placed the seeds into a damp paper towel to let them continue their process without accidental drowning. Midday today, I was able to see taproots emerging. Placed each seed in a fabric seedling bag containing 50/50 coco/perlite and just plain water that has been sitting out for 24 hours. Placed them in my small 2X4 AC infinity tent under a SF1000. And now we wait to see who pops their head(s) up! Fingers crossed as always. In the photos, the other plant is a Chronic Widow by ILGM that's 4 weeks old. I just transplanted her up, trying air pots for the first time and excited to see how that goes.
Two little heads starting to peek above the surface - hooray! Both still have their helmets on, so I carefully dripped some water on both to help continue softening it up. Will stay on top of that and give a gentle assist with tweezers only if absolutely necessary in the next day or so.
Well, it did turn out to be necessary to help the ladies take off their hats. They were still on pretty tightly despite being over an inch above soil, so it was delicate work but successful. They are starting to open up and officially enter their seedling stage. Super excited to watch these ladies grow!
Just checking in to say these ladies are doing fine and developing as expected. I am lightly feeding with 1/8 tsp Fox Farms Big Bloom and Grow Big in 1/2 gallon of water. Also doing 1/4 tsp/ half gallon of cal mag since it's coco. Will step it up to 1/4 each and 1/2 tsp respectively next time I mix nutes. I don't want these sweet babies to burn!
Ladies still developing nicely. Will transplant them up to a 1 gallon fabric container this weekend. Gratuitous shot of Diane the Chronic Widow also coming along. She will get booted to the flower tent this weekend.
Happy to report the transplant up to 1 gallon fabric pots went well. I use chopsticks and plant clips for extra support at this stage while they are getting reestablished.
Just got back into town after almost 2 weeks away. Husband babysat my girls and did pretty well...he didn't water/feed them quite as often as he was supposed to, but they survived and are developing nicely. I topped them right before I left. I'll be transplanting them up to 5 gallon air pots later tonight or tomorrow.
Transplanted up. I am going to throw those fabric pots away - the roots were growing into them and I had a hell of a time getting the ladies out. I was afraid I was going to hurt them. I'm going to just air pot all the way in the future I think - the attached photos are the two ladies from this challenge, and then the flowering one is the Chronic Widow who showed up in early shots (not part of the challenge) - she is SO much bigger than I usually see at this stage, so I am sold on the air pot promise. #allin
Now that the twins are getting older and developing their own looks and personalities, I have officially named them. May I present Hazy Hannah (taller and slimmer) and Katie Kush (bushier and fuller)! They are both happy and healthy. I skipped 2/1 since I started 2 seeds on 1/1 to make sure at least one survived for the challenge, but my plan has been to start a seed around the first of every month to keep a nice rotation going. I'm out of town next weekend and do not trust the hubs to take care of a baby yet, so I will drop a seed on 3/5 or 6 when I get back. All of that to say, I will let these girls continue to be in the veg tent until I have a seedling who needs some space, and then will boot them to the flower tent. If they need to move before that I will - might move Hannah first since she's taller and will have negative impact from the light being too close sooner and let Katie get a bit more robust before I bump her over.
Well it turns out these girls had other plans! They really fluffed up this week, which made for a very full 2x2. So yesterday, I upgraded them to the 4x4 flower tent! Excited to see how they do. Diane the chronic widow continues to flourish as well, as you can see.
These girls are coming along nicely! I can't figure out how to get the timer to start calculating flower days instead of flip days, but they are starting to show signs of early flower. They have stretched beautifully, and I am looking forward to seeing what they do. Diane in the back starting to stink in the very best possible way - had to adjust the spacing to give everyone room!
The girls are reaching way up high, and starting to develop their lovely little week 3 puff balls! Total vanity spread of Diane the Chronic Widow - she's getting nice mily trichs - probably looking at another week or two before the chop. Which is a very good thing, because it's getting quite crowded in there! These Hazy Kush girls are not here to F around!
