I missed growing Amy Aces when everyone else was, but time to give her a try. I started four regular seeds, in the hopes of getting one or two females. Even if I get three or four, I can fit them in the 120x60-cm (4x2') tent under the old Mars SP250. As long as I get more than zero! I'll do a short veg and flip while they are still in solo cups, so I can sex them before putting into final pots. Depending on how many females I get, I'll have a better idea of whether I can grow them from there or reveg for a bit.

Scuffed and soaked the seeds at 9pm on New Year's Eve, and then put them directly into soaked and rinsed coco pellets at midnight.

I also started one each of the other feminized seeds at the same time. Four of them will end up in the 100x100-cm (39x39") tent under the Photontek SQ300W Pro, but depending on whether they all germinate and how the Amy Aces do, one may move into the other tent with Amy.

 

Thanks to  The American One, @XYZVector, Homegrown Cannabis Co., @Dean420,  and Old Faithful Seed Company for sending me the seeds!

Baked Apple is just about to poke her head up!

I may have to go back to Dr MJ Coco’s paper towel method. Baked apple flipped herself completely out of the rooter, radicle and all, I carefully made a new hole in the rooter and tilted the radicle into the hole. With the seed just below the surface. I hope she makes it!

Meanwhile, NERCv2 is up! I’m surprised the others haven’t shown yet.

NERCv2 is photosynthesizing.

Baked Apple is up with her coat off.

Unicorn Rainbows is up but still wearing her seed coat.

No sign yet from Banana Kush, Trop Cherry x Super Boof, or any of the Amy Aces. I tried to set all the seeds close to the top, but maybe I delved too deep.

I lost a week to personal health stuff. Fortunately, I was able to keep watering them at least once a day, but did not have time to start new seeds, prep coco, pot up to solo cups, mix fertilizer, or adjust the grow light setting. All of which should have happened a week ago.

The result is 3 plants which have been in a holding pattern most of the week. Despite being ignored other than water, they survived and even started growing some new leaves, but very slowly.

I got the coco prepped (rehydrated and buffered) yesterday. This morning I potted them up into solo cups. My airpot starter cells should be here any day, and I may switch them into those. I set the light at about 200 umol/m^2/s through the humidity dome. Just about to mix up some seedling fertilizer.

Light is now at about 300 umol PPFD at the canopy. Feeding Jack’s veg recipe—I don’t have any of their propagation fertilizer yet. It’s on order. Mixed in water 3.79g A (5-12-26), 2.52g B (15-0-0 Ca(NO3)2), 15 ml humid acids, 15ml yucca), and diluted down, starting at 220 EC and now up to 707 EC at 5.93 pH.

The new Jack’s fertilizers I ordered have now arrived. So I am switching from a dilute version of the veg recipe to their new propagation fertilizer “Clone”. This is a single part water-soluble moist/dry mix with NER (15-6-7) and micronutrients for young cannabis plants.

1 g of fertilizer in 1 liter of my well water (65EC) yielded an EC of 775 and pH of 5.85. I’m only fertigating 20-30ml per plant per fertigation so about 250ml a day total.

Three nodes grown and growing well! Here’s what they looked like last night:

Potted up into #3 air pots (about 8L of coco-perlite mixture, 80-20 ratio). Switching to the Jack’s veg recipe, and slowly increasing from EC 700 to 1100.

I keep forgetting to update this! Anyway, the plants are doing great. Finally set up the auto-fertigation system. I’m still fertigating 3x a day, but now the timer does it all for me. 3 minutes of stirring and aeration with a waterfall pump, then deliver the nutrient solution.

Growth rate is getting out of hand! So I flipped today before they get bigger than I want them. I doubled up on the stress (which is never good) and removed the branches from the second nodes to grow clones for the side challenge!

Plants took the flip and cuttings in stride. I did some gentle bending, but will wait a couple of days before doing real LST and tying the branches down and out. The clones perked up in the humidity dome after wilting slightly when I cut them and put in the cloner.

The plants ran out of room in the 120x60 cm (4x2 ft) tent, so I moved them into the 100x100 cm tent.

The Photontek SQ300W Pro light has a bunch of red 660nm and far red 730 nm LEDs, so I’ve learned the hard way not to keep the plants under it in veg or transition. I flipped 12 days ago, so even if I get stem elongation now, there should be plenty of room.

Light is about 46 cm (18”) above the canopy at 100%. 

The Baked Apple and NERCv2 clones have roots, but nothing on the Unicorn Rainbows 🦄🌈 yet. Soon I hope!
