Bonsai Invitational Grow Off Diary by Terppopotamus.

5/21/24

I have acquired two of these plastic shallow rectangular Bonsai type pots with trays to use for this competition.

20240221 095006
20240221 095018
20240221 095036

 

There are a couple modifications that I plan to make to each pot but nothing that will alter the size. I'm going to attempt to germinate ONE Argyle's Stash F1 and ONE Truffle Cake S1 by soaking the seeds in water then using the paper towel method. I will be back with an update when I have the pots ready, and I start germination. Thanks for checking in. 😎 👍

I drilled holes around the perimeter of both pots and put a few extra holes in the bottom of each pot as well.

20240526 191539

I added a metal rod to aid in the LST technique. My plan is to try a mystery technique with the other plant. Both pots are filled with a mix of Miracle Grow organic in ground soil mixed with perlite and FFOF. I have never used the miracle grow soil for my cannabis but I had some left over from another project so I'm attempting to make use of it.

20240526 191014

I picked up these Blumat Classics in case I have to be away for a few days. Fingers crossed they do the job if need be. Argyle's Stash on the left  and Truffle cake on the right.

20240527 151229

The seeds will soak for around 8 hours then be put into moist paper towels and placed in a sealed bag. Thanks for checking in! 😎👍

The Argyle's Stash has cracked and been planted but no Truffle Cake. This is the second dud out of a freebie pack. I have one left I will get soaking for backup. I also picked up two more bonsai style pots. (smaller than the one I posted measurements on so that won't be an issue.)

20240530 151627

Westports Posse and No Joke by Chad Westport will be added to this grow to total four plants. If neither Truffle Cakes crack I will take it as a sign and only run the three plants. Thanks for checking in. 😎👍

78F / 55%RH

I poked holes in the soil surface and then sprinkled Rootwise Mycrobe Complete in each. I'm keeping the soil moist with de chlorinated tap water @6.5PH using a spray bottle. Argyle's Stash was the first to break the soil surface. The first Truffle Cake never cracked. The second Truffle Cake showed tap root within 48 hours and was next to pop above the soil. Westport's Posse and No Joke showed tap roots in the first 48 hours as well. No Joke has popped, and I'll be removing the humidity dome soon. The next update is coming when Westport's Posse shows up. Thanks for checking in!

I'm going to give them some time to settle in before I start manipulating their growth.

Quick update here, Westports Posse never came up. I did some investigating, the seed and tap root looked like a mushy mess beneath the soil. The first leaves on No Joke look rough so I am curious too see if it snaps out of it in the next few days. I will start another Westports Posse now and will update after things start happening. Thanks for checking in. 😎👍

Westports Posse #2 cracked and was planted straight into the small bonsai pot today. I am a little worried I may have over saturated the soil but it is what it is. I will keep covered with this plastic cup untill the first true leaves show themselves. That is all for now, thanks for checking in. 😎👍
