NYGC PBreeding: Rd 3 Time to Dial it in
My NERC sprouted and one is dealing with a light call mag issue so I have begun a foliar spray.
Neither of my first two Afghan cherries showed any signs of life so I dropped two more and seems they have started to sprout.
My LOS soil is going well too, just trying to get used to the slow pace compared to hff in Coco.
Went through a it of a cold snap and I wasn't prepared. It has been in the 60-70s here, then for 3 days it got to the freezing point. Tent temps got down to the mid 60s with the led on full blast near the top of the tent. My two Afghan cherries (green tag) are a week behind my NERC (blue). The small thing that doesnt know if it wants to live or die is the other NERC.
Temps are back to normal, low 80s in the temp and humidity around 60 so hopefully they'll pick it up some.
Here is a pic of my first soil (LOS) grow and first attempt at super cropping
All have been topped and trimmed. The little NERC that wouldn't die has some new growth and root is showing at the bottom of pot.
I'm transplanted all the girls into finals last night. The NERC are at the bottom of the photo, they are a week ahead of the Afghan Cherries. The runt looking one almost died as a seedling but I dug it out and it took hold again. I didn't pot that one up in steps because quite frankly I was tired of hand watering.
Autowater is all set up now just have to time it in. In the past I get way too much runoff overall. The girls have all been topped and trimmed. The NERC has been topped twice on the way to mainlines so far.
Well things are moving slower than expected. Maybe I am just used to seeing autos too much but I'm still waiting one more day or so to do the final topping on the cherries in the back of the tent. Probably looking at flipping next weekend.
Well things are starting to pick up and I will definitely be flipping this weekend for the sake of Rez change will be at the same time. Started to train the NERC out after its final mainline topping. The NERC on the bottom right is being trained around in a semi circle. It really made a bounce back from it's death bed, benefiting from the slow growth of her sisters.
The Afghan cherries in the back have had their final topping but the mains are developing slowly.
All the leaves in the tent seem to look a bit thick and a little wrinkly to me but all runoff is within 200 of my inflow (1200)
pH fluctuates from 5.8-6.2
Separate post for the soil dwellers
The one seems to have down a loop around in the rapid rooter when it was aseedling and seems to be the reason it stayed low. The other is not developing as thick of buds but does have more bud over all. May have a slight deficiency just order some inputs from build soil will appLy this weekend
Girls had their fist night of 12/12 last night.
I was doing some LST and snapped a main off one of my cherries, tried my best to Frankenstein it but to no avail. The Afghan cherries are on the right on the NERC are on the left.
You can see the NERC in the bottom left bounced back quite well from it's earlier photos.
Temps are okay 80/69 but the weather here is going crazy, from freezing Saturday to 80° today.
Humidity sucks in the lows 50s upper 40s and can't get it up even with humidifier
Trim job this weekend. Had too many leaves just laying in top of each other and they seem to be squat plants anyways. Over all not great first impression from photos as it seems my plants were bigger than these over the past few grows. They are smelling good so hoping they burst out here soon. I have switched to early bloom nutes.
