PTGC Misfits: LST, Cloning of GDP from Seed

Week Zero - GDP Germination

I've got myself some good seeds with strong genetics and will be popping them using the float technique of dropping them in some pHd water and planting straight into prebuffered, rebuffered 100% Coco.

Set-up is a 5x5 with 6" inline fan and SE5000 (480W) and two "Hydra" companion plants... Yes these girls have surrogate mothers to help raise the humidity in such a large grow space.

Week One - Life Above Ground

Little did these emerging girls know that they were being born during a time of war. The surrogate mothers that were meant to protect the young seedling were infested with Mites.

Life above ground is tough for these girls and they are being mostly neglected being feed on the bare minimum of CalMag, A&B and Ryzotonic until the future is more certain.

Update - Serrated Leaves

During the two last week the girls were being fed the bare minimum with the Coco taking its fair share.

Now the plants were a little more robust, I have them a special feed (Mother's Milk) EC 650 MicroSiemens to boost the roots on primarily CalMag and Ryzotonic to celebrate the appearance of the new serrated leaves.

Week Three- SEP 6

Time to LST, S is for stress. I'm trying to get light to the internodes early.

I will be transplanting in the coming week. So prebuffering starts... I just feed the empty pots for a couple days on EC 750-860 to make sure the cation sites are nice and full for when the plants first arrive

Week Five 

The girls are coming in nicely..

Cannabis Grow IMG20210920171635
Cannabis Grow IMG20210920171629

The bigger of the two is coming in nice and even while the smaller girl is about 3 or 4 days behind in height. The only difference is I broke one of the lower branches on the big girls underside. The big girl also spouted first.

Week Six - SOG scaffold

Cannabis Grow IMG20210927182047

One of the girls is filling out nice, symmetrical and is ready to go vertical. She has had the rear column of branches removed only..

Cannabis Grow IMG20210927182020

The other girl on the other hand has had half of the branches removed front and back..

BOOM Nute Lock!!! Can you see it?

  1. Talon leaves
  2. Yellowing tips
  3. Dead tips
  4. Dead leaf edges..seen below

I like to grow on the limit of tip burn with a slight Nitrogen abundance, but she won't grow out of this at 2,250Microsiemens.

I'll give her a flush with EC~1,000 root boost to re-establish the micro culture in the media. In this instance the burn was brought on by high temps hitting above 83 degrees.

She'll bounce back fine..

Cannabis Grow IMG20211001090004
Cannabis Grow IMG20211001085940

Fed both girls on a ~half EC @ 1350Microsiemens, 73 Degrees, 5.6pH

1/3 A&B, full dose CalMag and overdose of root booster.

Runoff EC 750Microsiemens, 6.3pH.

The big girl will thank me, the little of the two is a good canary. I've been ignoring the taloned leaves, but enough was enough.

The serrogate mothers are doing their job. Also just switched to 20/4 light cycle to stop the moms in the tent blooming.

Target Temp & RH = 76 & 70

Daytime Temp & RH = 78 & 77

Second week of 12/12 light cycle and the girls are having a growth spurt.

I've just untied the main stem because it was falling behind the secondary stems.
