Getting some last minute odds and sods taken care of before the seed drop. I have a small DWC transition area between the propagation area and the main RDWC system. I have always meant to setup some kind of automated propagation, no time like the present

Morning, day 4, and continued signs of life. 
seed drop New Year’s Eve, soaked for 18 hours (in a weak mix of RO water and Canna Rhizotonic). 
then into root riot plugs. Four (hopefully) will be selected for the hydro system, any that don’t make the cut will end up in a 0.75 gal pot of supersoil and into my 12 hour tent soon after one topping, forcing into early flower (bonus)

2024 NYGC: Day 7 since seed drop, transferred to “root propagation”. Girls will be here for the next 7 days. There’s only room for 4 in the spa, so the two in solo cups will hang out under the T5 for a bit, then head to the 12 hour tent after one or two toppings and an up-potting to 0.75gal pots.

hydroton cleaned in diluted H2o2 yesterday, 50% strength seedling nutes mixed and pH”ed  

Pump timer set to 15 mins on, 15 off.

Morning folks, sorry for no update last weekend, first pic is last weeks update, which leads in to my current progress. 

Prior to last weekend, things got a wee bit chilly 🥶, had a whole side of beef hanging going on close to 14 days, and with the sudden temp drop, I had to drop EVERYTHING and head to the farm, we needed to get it butchered before it froze. So my last weekend update, butchering beef, -15f outside,and we’re in an uninsulated garage. Meanwhile, back home, my young girls are cold 🥶 and low RH. Figured that whole chain of events set me back 1 1-1/2 weeks. Should have had a lot more roots by now! 
But things are progressing.

Last week, I opened my 4x4 up and pointed the fans out to get some humidity in my lung room (which is where the seedlings are ). Figured it was more of a pain to move my mini dwc into the 4x4, and the light is a little much for them!

Today I did a nute change, probably next weekend they will be ready for the 4x4.  One of four, one little root starting to poke out the bottom, the others showing various rates of root development. A week ago, I also dialed back the drip rings to 1 min per hour, allowing the hydroton to become less saturated and encourage downward root growth. 

one thing I’m uncertain of- if these girls will be able to make up for lost time once they are in the RDWC System and be ready for the clone side challenge  if not, maybe I’ll take some cuts from the Gods Poison ( the girl in the back right in some of the photos

Unplanned day off work, so an unplanned update 🙃

everything still moving in a forward direction, a little slower than I expected (maybe the cold spell, &/or cultivar- first time with this one). 
back two girls still on drip rings, roots are showing and should be touching the nutes by the weekend. 
timing is a little tight, was going to clean and sterilize my RDWC system last night and noticed a little leak. New pump will be here Friday, and new nutes. I’ve been using hydroponic research, works well, but I don’t like the root staining, makes it a little harder identifying root rot, so I’m trying something different.

Delivery services were on time yesterday, which is good news for the weekend. Replacement pump arrived, as well as the new nutes I’m trying. 
installed the pump after work yesterday, and have had 35 gallons on 3% H2O2 circulating since last night for a final clean and leak check. Flush it a couple of times today. Mix nutes and probably moving day tomorrow.

Got the girls settled into their final accommodations last night. 
pH is a wee bit higher than I’d prefer, but first time with new nutes, so as long as it doesn’t rise too much more I want to keep an eye on nute level, pH, and EC.

as long as the girls are drinking, the pH and EC delta will help me dial in the optimal EC range (anyone reading and not familiar with this method of hydro-  goal is always dropping rez level which means the girls are drinking, and steady EC and pH. Usually, at the EC sweat spot, the pH will be steady or rise very very slightly over a 24 hr. period). 
last night, knowing RDWC I can cut my nutes back way more than the feed charts say to use,  assuming nutes/rez level drops, the pH should guide me to the optimal EC.  
Nute/rez level did drop 0.4” since yesterday, EC 1.14 (background EC 0.1). pH currently 6.25/6.26  (the doser is not dosing right now until I figure these nutes out, cleaned and calibrated both pH probes last night/this morning. Both reading within 0.01 of each other).

Last update, right after I moved the girls into the RDWC, it was evident the girls had root rot. My nutes prior to the moved stained everything, a day or two after the move, with cleaner nutes, the discoloration was getting worse, followed by dropping leaves, then discoloration on the lower leaves. As soon as I realized what was going on, I decided to run a sterile system for a week and trim the bad roots off. Second nute change, and since most of the new roots have landed, added bennies back in. Girl in the back left corner is the last to recover, her new roots, she should cover some ground in the coming days. 

needless to say, I was not ready to clone last weekend!

Bouncing back nicely, loving these nutes, clean and stable. I have my doser turned off, it’s just monitoring, good agreement between my ph meters, I think the cleanliness of the nutes keeps the pours in the glass probe cleaner. I haven’t made it this long between cleaning and calibration before.

Nice and clean.

And good pH agreement between my two meters!

Topped the girls and took some cuts about 18 hours ago. I would have waited a little longer to take cuts for clones, but wanted to top the girls to kick them along and make up for lost time.  

Girl, back left- if I had a back up girl, shed get the boot, figured nothing to loose topping her, either stress her to start stretching out a bit, or die. 

The two girls on the right are doing the best, they are the donors for the cloner. I’ll probably be relying on those two to help fill the canopy. 

The photos are from the other night, the youtube vids, this morning.

RDWC nutes after 1.5 weeks, disgustingly clean 😜

My cloning process is simpler than most folks. I dip the cut in gel, let is sit in the aerocloner for 10-15 mins, let the gel sit on the cut end before misting. Usually I use straight RO water, pH’ed. Cloner on for 48 hours, then on for 1 minute, off for 6 mins until I see roots (usually 7-14 days).  This go around I messed up a little, I programmed my pump, alls good, come back and check on things a couple of hours later—  forgot to plug the pump in !!!!🙃 Cuts were wilted the next morning, but have since picked themselves up a bit.  Oh, and I don’t use a humidity dome.  One other thing I did different this go around- I added Benificial bacteria to the water for the first 48 hours, I’ll change the water tonight, undecided whether to add bennies again.

Cloner- changed water last night as I flipped from the mister being on for 48 hours, to 1 min on, 6 mins off. Opted to go with straight RO water as I’ve done in the past. 

so far, so good.
