PTGC Toppers: The Belmont via OCgrower76
Hellooooo Growers (you heard it in Doc Coco's voice, admit it!)
Way back in the year CfC Member OCGrower76 tried to send me some seeds and they got to Canada but when they left BC tracking was lost after they left the building...
Later CfC Belmont sent me some of the seeds he had received from OC (at lest that's what I recall, hope so or I'll have to change a few things here lol
Regardless I have some Scurvy Mac Regs and I will be dropping for the PTGC. Now depending on what the seeds give me I do want to save a male, if I get one, to keep in same room but pluck the sacs before they open and see if what "they say" is true about females going crazy when they know a male is around but they are not getting pollinated. So lets see for our selves. Maybe will need to grow the same again without to see...
Also I would like to keep a mother so the hope is at lest 2 to 3 Females. So I can have 1 or 2 in the 4x4 and the mother in the small veg tent if I get three female or I just wait and clone the top(s). The Mother will be growing in my Cocoil organic mix (very much like Mr.Canukgrows) and train her out cloning the lowers cuttings but that's beside this grow.
Now again depending on what I get for female, I will top and veg out to fill the 4x4 possibly using a net... I tried last grow but the autos where orbs and the net proved pointless but these are photo's 😀 And 1 or 2 females will effect the flip date. One will need a longer veg, so we'll see what happens there.
I think to I will germinate in the small tent to, to manage the environment (the reminds me I should get the other house plants) in the smll tent so the GeakBeast isn't on just for a few smll plants in the 4x4 lol
Will be going the High Frequency Fertigation (HFF) of course and I plan (maybe with your help) to make short vid's daily or every other and put up on youtube (Try not to get removed lol HALP) and document everything I do. Like even mixing nutes each time and what the readings are and why I do what I do different with the CfC method and ways (do not assume what works for me will for you 😉 ) and maybe with a day to day process I won't lose track like it seems I keep doing even though I do write things down an use a calendar.
I will be taking a 'hero's dose of mushrooms to send this grow on it's way so Here's to a new beginning. I still have shit to sort but slowly doing what I can to move forward then sitting stagnant. I may not become a famous youtuber like some of your CfC members are but I will make an effort to go further with my knowledge and growing abilities.
Mental health has always been a struggle for me and stops or hold me back from a lot of things like even furthering my knowledge of many thing. Almost as if I've learned enough to feel I know more then most ppl and so it ends there... 3yrs and I don't think I've improved much and at lest not got worse lol It's funny because the things I know, ppl say things like omg you are so passionate about ______ whatever it is (I have a few things) yet I feel absolutely no passion for things.... if it is passion, Why the dead stop in progressing with any of them?
Any ways, That is the idea, plan going forth. If you are subscribed to my grow. Thank you for your interest and if you see I have been slacking PLEASE feel free to accost me for my updates! lol I've done these for you but I am trying to now do this for myself but I don't do much for myself and that is one of the struggles mentioned.
Drop seed film the drop sjare it everywhere But my journal lol
It was longer but had to cut to fit.
5 Scurvy Mac. I am ready for 2 covo hff and if I get more female, I have lots of cocoil.
Oh an I am going into a jiffy puck but right into a one gallon soft plastic pot insert. The jiffy will be like a seedling root buffer before hitting the coco as well as hold moisture. Weird I know but just run with it 😉
Wow I didn't realize how LoNg my first entry was and I didn't even talk about my set up!
Maybe that can be added once or as I start using items as well as putting ones aside.
So around 24 soak and have sank. The seeds do look daker so imbibing has begun or so I assume 😅
Soaked some jiffy, put seeds on the paper towl under jifffy to which I add the dy-nomite to. Then on a pretty warm heat mat but raised slightly. And a "Dome" to hopefully hold a stable heat.
Hope to be in the Jiffywith tails before my days off are over, is the to much to ask? Lol
P.d. Video's, I didn't take but when I do it might hve to be links to YouTube
Seen a tail today and tonight I see a crack in at lest 2 more but that's still counting your chickens before they crack... lol
So I put the tiny tap rooted seed into the jiffy and will drians the coco over noght an rinse. Byt that time mybe the others will be showing more and also ready for the jiffis an one gal coco pots.
And we have 4! The 5th was really really soft so shell isn't the problem. It wa white but didn't seem to be germinating.
But 4! Thats a pretty good chance of 2 female (unless yhts a jinx lol) so now it's a waiting game. Between fertigation when true leaves show.
Oh and the one yesterday, no oic but the tail was straight up an out the Top! 😳 so quickly I opend the jiffy and flipped it. I hope it will be okay. So glad its i the humidity done or it may have dried out! I worry it has dried enough to be a probut hope not 🤞

Woke up for work to two heads one with a helmet 😁 Maybe when I get home I'll have two more😁🤞🤞
Listening to Smotpoker PTGC kick off and it seems I maybe should have been in the Arcitechs groups lol but I am not worried. I'll work it like I work it, the group isn't sooo fundamental, right😉

Okay so today... why did I not video an now thinking of it but not wanting to disturb the environment longer hahahaha
If you guessed High. 😁
I have a 3rd seedling coming up. So tomorrow night I guess my 4th will appear.
I have my AC infinity (won here at cfc) set on 1 if it gets to 25c and alarm overdrive at 27 as I dialed up the Geekbeast mini (won here at CfC) from 90umol to 200+/- @ 2feet. Feeling this out, the clover an succulent enjoyed that low light and "low" is relative to what picks up those photons and when, right.
I also increase air current. The dome is all covered in condensation with both two ole open. Yes high rH good but with airflow 😉
I also do this thing.... the lid is wet. It drips. I drip it onto the seedlings. Good bad, I think it's okay... obviously lol

If you got this far, thanks eh! An maybe leave comment. I'm lonely, my plants dont talk and Boss Cat Derp is always on my ass.
K #4 is bust. Almost like it was to wet and made it mushy.
I put two in one gal buff coco and the 3rd I am questioning it's stateof true leaves an think it will not progress any further.
The fist up is the tallest and I think male an the other a few days behind is short so maybe femle. Nothing guaranteed of course, just a guess.
So here we are. If I count days from true leaves open I could say yesterday and today for the two potted up and what I think are the only two. Now we start to plan structure of the plants and get suplies for a pvc trellis.
Kinda wish I knew if they were female. Because IF two then I would do one of each. A hff coco an gaia gr built cocoil. Could even do them side by side in the 4x4 but I was thinking one on the small flower tent and a longer veg in the 4x4. But alas I donut know. I have always been a strong believer, not in everything happens for a reason but more something/one floating down a river. You can only do so much in the current, you can get put into an eddie (those little side whirl pools) and never move from where you are but other things could come along shove ypu back into the current. These eddies are not always stuck place but could be the Neche are person finds, their pasion and they don't need to move with the same current as everyone or to say content in where they are. Then the others in the eddies you see aleays coming close to getting out out of that eddie, are like the ppl struggling to change [whatever they feel needs changed] but never seem to do it... if I'm making any sense lol I think we need to let go of control or what we think we control an go with the flow no matter the ups or downs and be content. I mean I'm rambling meow lol but I'm not saying don't fight for things or don't resist the current. Like in a baot, you bned to fight the river from pulling or pushing you into the runts those eddies. I don't know what I am saying 😅 wake n bake you sure did your job lol
Please, share your thoughts on life philosophies and what's the word, analogies of the way you see things.

Made yhe first nute mix. 1050 eC an around 6pH with the papper tester. I gave straight up like that since they are in the 1 gal pots. I know we should easy them into but I have also been letting the pots sit in water, saoking it up. So coco is possibly more then capacity.
3rd one looks like it really is trying to sprout 🤞🤞bpics in a day or so and yeah where's that video!!😅

Well the 2nd seed is just not moving and the 1st is mvoing but not like they usually do in coo. So I am thinking it is the reused coco and the higher eC in the seedling mix [under the assumption the higher eC of previous coco grows was fine] might be messing with them.
My head is getting the better of me. I think I rushed to start when I was planning a little break. I had a short break but yeah now with everything but mainly my lacking in focus is having me feel this.... helpless, useless, you know better wtf are you doing this for battle. I think it's also that nothing around is in order like I was hoping to have before starting a new grow. As well as wtf you doing salts again, go with cocoil and just water and feed microbial life into it! But I really do want to have 1 or 2 HFF to fill the 4x4.
But I also wonder if it is the deep feeling of the collapse of society is coming in the next 3 yrs. Making the effort to do anything that much more difficult then it already seems to be [for me].
Maybe I'll dilute the mix, sometimes you just have to do things to know why we do things in the first place 😉 . I'll put up some pics tomorrow. Show you how little they have progressed and even the 3rd seed, stalled.
Taken this morning.
Left hasn't moved at all an very unhappy. Right is better but still not happy. Might take Berkshire's suggestion of a good rinse or nutrient flush.
I don't know what I am feeling. Pissed at myself for messing up seeds that where sent to me by a fellow cfc grower. Up in the air because mu head wasn't fully into the grow but went through with germination anyways. House still in disarray and just need to suck it up and throw shit out. Really jeed to start pulling everything outside and then put it back in in some better order lol sad single Dan lacks almost all motivation. If it wasn't for coffee these days I would probably starve to deatg 😅

Maybe I can get into the most recovered grow lol
Sothe one that popped first is the onlu one left and I hope it's female!
Been giving seedling nutes teice a day an doing well.
temps 26-27c and rH %60-65. I think the rapid growth is just about to kick i to overdrive.
On another note, I hacked allthe clove from the top of the Bonsai Avocado because I seen some healthy new nodes starting on the Avo which I thiught had gotten strangled out by the clover. Well apparently not. So cut it right bavk a few days ago an the clover is already coming back but the Avos buds look better too

Ferting twice a day from the first gallon mixed.
I have exhaust set to go on when 27c hits. Drops to 26. This keeps temps stable n my rH above %60.
She plugging along
