NYGC Misfit: 3 Mephisto’s
Started Mephisto seeds on the 10th. All three above ground by the 13th. Just barely snuck in here.
testing out l:
i transplanted up a week and a half ago from the white nursery bags to 5 gal mad pots on the advice of my local shop and they have struggled since. The first transplant stunted HBH, it recovered and sort of topped itself. I think I have been overwatering since the 5 gal pots, they have been drooping for a week and a half and are showing signs of deficiencies. DG has turned purple on most of the stems and it’s losing its first two leaf sets. PP is yellowing from the bottom up and seems to be showing the claw up at the top. They’ve still been growing and are starting preflower while HBH is much shorter and not showing signs yet.
So the runt HBH is finally showing pistils so that’s all 3, I think PP was first and DG showed on the 9th.
they all really took a beating from transplanting and not knowing how to water the small plants in big pots, they seem to be rebounding but showing multiple deficiencies.
they are all very different heights now, DG is taking off and I really need to get some things to put under them to fix the height difference to give them the same amount of light. I may also need to rearrange my led strips to cover the tent better
Rearranged plants to get the heights closer. Kept turning down the light because the leaf edges were curling up but after some more reading maybe it was a symptom of the overwatering. They all turned pretty yellow and developed a big time magnesium deficiency due to not being able to keep on it because of the infrequent watering. Gave them cal mag with a foliar feed today to try to counteract it. Watered 2/3 after they started dropping and they perked back up, the other is still reaching for the sky 9 days after watering. I am really learning a lot the hard way this grow.
Here is current state. Back left is double grape which hasn’t been watered in 11 days but still hasn’t drooped. I plan to water today. The other 2 were watered 5 days ago
Fed double grape mostly cal mag and microbials. Tried just 500ml since I used 800ml on the other 2 and it’s been 5 days and they don’t quite seem to need water. I really don’t understand
About to harvest 2/3 plants. they made a miraculous comeback and grew in spite of me. Double Grape was a bit of a bust with lots of problems as I lost so many leaves in early flower/late veg that it wasn't able to put any flower weight on and threatened to die a few times.
Pink Panama is beautiful and was exactly the sort of inspiration to keep me excited with this new hobby. Not that it didn't struggle but check out the pic.
Hubba Bubba Haze is getting close and the unintentional topping aka stunting ended up working out in my favor as it's going to yield double the other 2 combined which will hopefully tide me over until the SAFC is complete.
i just got an old computer working which really makes it a whole lot easier to post on here so i hope to have a more updated journal moving forward.
