NYGC Bags: A bastard from the garden.

Cannabis Grow IMG 20191231 203728458

I noticed these on one of my girls that I had put into flower. The mature one is the lucky one for this challenge. I will be doing an organic grow, popping the seed in peat and perlite then transplant 1wk from sprout into its final 1gal pot with my mix of organic soil, peat and perlite.

Seed is ready to be dropped at 12 a.m. Central Time.

Yes, I nicked off a piece of the seed husk with a blade for faster germination.

 

Happy New Year to everyone and to all Grow Luck!!!

Passed out on the couch waiting for midnight but I just now dropped seed in soil.

NYGC Bags: A bastard from the garden.

So an unfortunate thing happened. I got curious on why my seed hadn't reached the top. I have noted that it only takes me 3-4 days for the seed to germinate and reach the top breaking soil. I dug in there and found a small cluster of about 10 larvae. I was like "What the fuck, you dicks!!!."

The medium I used to start my seed was infested with fungus gnat larvae and that ate the embryonic leaves and left the tap root. This also happened to one out of the other two seeds I planted 3 days ago. So now my Tegslo x Thors Hammer cross will be taking over this challenge. (Note: this seed is part of my breeding project. If it happens to be a male, it will also be flowering along with every fellow grower's girl on here. 

I'm thinking of using a layer of sand to top my soil to deal with the problem and also some Diatomaceous earth before hand.

If anyone has any more advice on how to get rid of fungus gnats, I will gladly take it.

Below is my cross that hit above ground in just 3 days...

On my last post from last week I showed my cross already sprouted. I also had previously mentioned that my perlite and Peat moss mix was infested with fungus gnat larvae. I thought this one was safe but when I got back home from work that evening it was looking sad. So again I dug to see what was going on below. And to no Surprise what I found was that larvae were already eating the inside of the tap root starting from the middle. I was fucking pissed off because this was the last surviving seed out of two of my cross that I had left to continue my breeding. That is because the other seed got eaten before it got to break ground. 

I was determined to not give up on this one so I did all in my knowledge to keep it alive.

....it worked.

Here it's showing how it's sad when I got home from work, then when I put it in some water and nutes (organic) and the next day it perked up.

Here you can see in the picture 1 takken in the morning, the root poking along with the two dead larvae, one sticking out of the bottom of the split root and one laying flat below it. Picture 2 was taken in the evening and picture 3 was taken this morning.

I'll be transplanting it into soil tonight. Along with the "A bastard from the garden" original entry below.

My setback was drastic because of this but I'm just happy I didn't give up.

 

DAMN YOU FUNGUS GNATS!!!!

13 hrs later. It shot a new root through the main tap root where it was eaten from. I think it's ready...

So I gave this baby it's new home using soil  from my outdoor compost bin that I inoculated with native mycorrhizal fungi to do the work. This baby got a good size chunk of it placed right by the roots. A sandwich bag was the perfect fit for this seedling pot to use as a dome. I covered and topped it off with earthworm castings, Jobe's Organics granular tomato feed and bone meal powder mixed with soil.

My seedlings are getting back to normal after near death experiences. They have been stretching over the weekend working hard pushing out their second set of leaves.

Both are doing well stretching and growing. Aside from that, only some mushrooms grew out.

Sorry for the delay on updates. I have been busy traveling with no chance to post. I kept up with the water and feed also taking pictures. So here is the progress...

1/26

1/29 feeding day. First I water to moisten soil, wait ten minutes, then gave the them their dose of nutes to each and watered in lightly to no run-off.

This is the organic feed I'm using.

The story behind this brand is that it has been discontinued. The owner of the local nursery told me he bought the last batch from a warehouse sale.

These babies got fimmed/topped yesterday and fed. They are loving it. I do have them under 24/0 light cycle which causes what seems like slow growth. This causes the leaves to mature faster reducing the size of fan leaves by half and also maturing branches and stalks making them strong and strudy to handle weight from the flowers. I do this to control the height of my plants during veg cycle. This also helps to keep internodal spacing tighter compared to growing under 18/6 which will help the plant stretch more along with wider spacing between nodes and big leaves.

They came out of sleep when I got home from work this evening. They  have only received water since last post. For the moment they will be doing their stretch on the veg side of the tent.

They took the topping pretty well. 

Fungi life in the soil.

For darkness they will be put on the flowering side of the tent with the 4 older girls. The tallest one on the left back corner is being harvested in 24 days. Which will make space for the other two baby's to grow in.

So far just water to both. A light feed yesterday. I have also been doing some HST, pressing and breaking stem tissue. Along with pushing the branches down to manipulate them to grow outward without being held down by an object.

I have been so busy that I haven't had a chance to up pot Tegslo x T.H. I will tonight when lights come on. 

Looked them up and down for sex, so far nothing.

Not too much going on. 

Tegslo x T.H. finally received a bigger pot yesterday. Today I did the last training on its branches. 

B.F.T.G is looking good showing off its pretty leaves. It has an apple seedling as a companion. 

No sex showing yet nor signs of wanting to flower.

Been busy. I light fed both yesterday and they are loving their soil. I finally spotted some sex.  So far here is how they look.

Tegslo x T.H.

I say this one is male. Will be a plus for me. I took its lower branches to clone.

So... girls it is. Both confirmed two days ago.

Tegslo x T.H.

I ended up doing one more LST to even out her canopy. Also to allow more light to a main short branch that accidentally topped while pressing the stem for HST. 

B.F.T.G.

Not much going on with this girl aside from the split stem accident awhile and the FIM before going into flower... She's has had a much more stress free life with her apple seedling companion.

Here we have the cuttings from both the girls. To the left are the cuts for B.F.T.G taken today (yes, I will be rooting that tiny cut). And to the right are the cuts for Tegslo x T.H. that I took over a week ago. I'm sure they have rooted. 

Cannabis Grow IMG 20200310 085514846

Anyways, the girls are finishing up stretch and getting ready to bud up.

That is all for now. I hope everyone is growing well. Grow Luck to all.
