NYGC OGs: Girl Scout Cookies for first grow

For my first grow I am using feminized seeds from Growers Choice. Got 5 seeds, see how many I can get to flowering.

Ok seeds scooped out of water and dropped into the jiffy pods.

Was just a bit too nervous to put them into paper towels.  Afraid I would be clumsy and break the tap root.

ok Day 6 updates.  all 5 seeds have pushed above. 3 of them took off and got stretchy.  I was using a crappy "grow" blurple light.  even sitting on top of the dome it was stretching them.  I set up my main grow light now.  we will see how they respond.

Day 9 update, I have second leaves coming in.  Still in Jiffy pods.  I am not seeing any roots yet so I haven't transplanted. I have bumped neuts up to 562  EC.

3 of the 5 have new leaves poppin.

I have been fighting a dry room.  I got rid of my cheap humidifier and got a reptile fogger.  I hope it can get my RH up.


Enjoy my little Darlings.

Ok transplant is successful. 

I had started low veg strength food at 1130 EC and a pH of 6.2. After 2 feedings at this strength I did the transplant. 

My coco came buffed and rinsed, but I soaked it in 2 gallons of CaMg water for an hour. Final run off was about 1020 EC.

Here are some pics about 12 hrs after the transplant.  I have the high table and the low table.  High table is my 3 strongest plants, the low table are my weakest 2 for the moment.

Also have my temp and humidity more in control.   Still not ideal but at least I have 40-55% RH.

Maybe these show a bit better.  I did get pics of the setup at least. Eventually there will be a 3 gal pot in each saucer. Have them set up so they can drain. It does take away some of my height.

So a bit unsure about them.

Here is my pre- transplant post. Currently my girls are in seedling bags but my roots are coming through in multiple areas, eventhough they had just been placed in the bags last Sunday. So tomorrow going into 1 gal fabric bag, not sure how long they will be there

At least 2 of the girls have started pushing node 6 leaves, at least I think so. I mean this is my first grow and they are still really stacked, so lots of chance of me not counting them right.

Stay tuned for progress report late tomorrow.

This is not the post you were expecting.  I said the next one would be post transplant.

Well best laid plans. Seems I had a senior moment and got the wrong pot size.  So I ordered what I needed. 

While waiting I finally educated myself on leaf and node structure.  Then I counted my nodes, seems i was pushing level 8 node. So today i gave them hair cuts. I cut down to node 3 and trimmed lower growth points. Planning a 3 top plant to get to 8 colas. My main 2 GTs now are at 2 nodes each. I will top again once I get clearance after the 3rd node.

Quick update: transplanted to 1 gal fabric pots. Coco was pre buffered, but since it had to be rehydrated a bit I used 7 mL/ gal of water of CaMg. Final coco runoff was 1100ish ec.  Then fertigated the coco, added the plant and fertigated  1more time. Final ec about 975.

Good numbers, which is really needed because the feed I made last night was about 100ec hotter and got a bit of neut burns .

So today, I accomplished either killing my plants, or successful topping and supercropping them.  Time will only tell. I have before and after pics. Except for one of them. Only an after.

Yes, the bend is wrapped. I did split the skin so I wrapped with grafting tape.

So happy to report that the girls recovered 99%. I had one fan leave casualty. My nodes were so tight that one of the leaves got caught in stem crushing. 

Looks like they will certainly be ready for a 14th flip date.

I have 1 question to figure out. My plan is to continue training and top once more. When should I transplant to final container.  Should I do that at the flip, or a week before the flip?

Today was a big day for the girls. They got topping #3. So my 8 little growth tips have started their little lives.  Here are 4 of them, I forgot one of them.

This one is an anomaly. It is a non symmetrical node. I found one on one of my other girls.

Well, I guess here we go. It has been said that my girls might be too small to flip. But I don't know enough to do anything differently. I am going to flip and learn. Maybe I can accomplish something.

Here they are in their 3 gallon pots, all comments welcome.

They have been topped 3 times and super cropped twice. Will maintain level during stretch.
