NYGC Potluck: Livers bx1

This New Year I'm growing what my grandmother used to force feed my father, Liver!

Mephisto Genetics has had this strain in the works since 2014 and it is finally out in the wild. I can't wait to be one of the first to try it.

This will be a soil grow using Nectar for the Gods bottled nutes.

 

More to come!

For this round I will be trying a new medium,a much hotter soil than last time, Coast of Maine.

I'm eager to see how the water-only life works for 30 days or so. I plan to sprinkle EZ-Tea veg and Recharge into this early stage as well.

I don't plan to topdress with powders once the nutrition starts to wean, I will be feeding bottled nutrients and teas.

Happy new years.

The anxiety riddled seed starting stage is finally over.

The Livers seeds were ready to grow popped within 24 hours, and had tails not long after that.

The Sour Stomper seeds were a full day behind the Livers, popping on 1/3, except for one.

I transferred all 9 seeds into root riot pellets. I used the Super Sprouter kit from the equipment guide on this site, which is essentially a custom humidity dome that's designed to have a T5 bulb resting right on top of it. I added a heat mat. and misted with water every few hours.

Within 2 days all seeds except one had made it above soil. 

When I went to check on the this morning,  the last straggler had made it. 100% germ!

I just now transplanted the root riots into seedling bags full of Coast of Maine soil. I misted them until the soil was wet, put them back on the heat mat and under the T5.

So far so good. Starting to feel confident about this grow.

The seedlings took to the soil very well, little to no stress or visible burning.

I've been simply misting them with a spray bottle every few hours to keep the top and the sides of the seedling bags damp. This has been working well so far, their 1 little set of leaves are praying up towards the light.

I just need to nail the next transplant and maintain this level of soil moisture and I think I'll be on cruise control until they get big enough to train.

My plants are happy as can be, but they just aren't as big as I want them to be. They're autos and will start flowering in a few weeks, I am concerned that I wont be filling two 4x4 tents with these 9 seeds.

I plan to top all but the smallest two plants tomorrow at node 5 or 6.

Switching back to photoperiod plants sounds more and more tempting as I think this will be another run with holes in my canopy.

Plants have been topped and given their first taste of microbes. I sprinked some recharge powder on the top of each pot before watering.

They're getting to the phase where each day they look very different, and the growth is noticeable.
