We're off and running. I've decided to go big on this one so we've got 13 seeds in to soak with fingers crossed we get at least a 60% germ rate as I'm no top breeder by any means so it's a bit of a lucky dip on if I get what I need if any. I'm planning on doing 2 types of bonsai training techniques and hopefully it works and they look amazing come the end of the grow. 

First tray I'll be aiming to do a multi tree twist with a fair bit of heavy jining and bending with some decorative root work.

Second tray will be an attempt at doing a cannagrove with the outcome looking sort of like a miniature forest at the end of an oval tray.

Seeds are currently in to soak so will go into the paper towel in 12hrs and from there into the soli cups for a month before going into the trays to finish out the completion of the grow.

Sorry for the delay on the update guys, I've had one of those fortnight's you could do without but the show must go on.

So to get back on track heres where we're up to. 

After thinking about it I'll be amending my choice of nutrient to just seasol. No point in using the good shit when I'm not smoking it in the end hey lol. So with that change now let's get down to what these untested seeds did on germination. Well I'm surprised to say the least out of the 13 sent for soak 9 have grown roots. The amazing thing is they stayed in a ziplock bag on top of the quantum board in some paper towel for 2 weeks

 Time for these regs to find a home so I got myself a couple of small pots and some of the good stuff from the veggie garden

20240610 134746

 The 3 biggest plants got to go into the bigger pot which will become the 3 tree twist if they all make full term and the remaining 6 will be used as the grove.

The almost 2 full weeks in the paper towel didn't harm the plants but I'd hate to push it any further with the larger of the 9 already having fine hairs growing from the tap root and the first set of leaves showing apart from the water leaves.

So for the afternoon they'll sit in the warm sun on the bricks heating the soil before coming inside for the next few months while winter does its shitty thing. Hope you enjoyed this update and look forward to our next.

Just like Pearl Jam They're still alive. 

It's been cold down here I won't lie but these group of misfits don't seem to care

The pot containing the 3 for the twist grow is going OK but one seems to be having a hard time getting sorted out and might not make it. If that's the case I have a contingency plan so no harm, no foul.

Now with the grove I'm not sure I got enough going on to call it a grove and couldn't get conformation on if it was OK to pop a fresh round to build the grove so I will play the hand dealt and see how it turns out....... whatever it is I'm doing lol I'm not sure yet.

Not much new to report this week, growth has slowed due to cold temps and with both the cabinet and the tent running I couldn't do much about heating them. But they're destined for a life of suffering so might as well start early.... that and a constant bombardment of photons due to the light doubling as a germination mat and not being able to switch it off.

But now with everything finished up I can take them out from under the VS1000 and move them into a shady corner of the tent under the SE7000... I figure if I'm going to use that light it might as well get the most of it.

After also receiving the OK to pop a few more beans to add to the grove I though 5 would be enough so as you do you pop 8 in the paper towel. And I'll be damned but after 72hrs in the bag I opened it to find everyone of them germinated.

Lol now I've got my hands full. That's gunna be one full grove if I can keep the balance. Today they got a feed seasol and vitathrive and are spending the day in the sun on the boarding deck of the ski soaking in the winter warmth.

I'm hoping for some vigorous growth in the coming weeks so I can start on training these things into hopefully something worthy of the effort. Thanks for stopping by this week, as always much love and see you next update.
