The Fruitylicious is a week old today; the Satori is 3 days old. I'm going to test them today in the grow box to see how high the temps get.
FRUITYLICIOUS - 1 Week: Her leaves look thin to me like a sativa, but the breeder states she is "70% indica". She'll be interesting to watch!
SATORI - 3 days: The leaves are starting off more stout than the Fruitylicious ... almost like it's predominantly indica although the breeders describe it as more sativa dominant, "Satori is an exceptionally easy to grow sativa". Nevertheless, it is a sativa-indica mix so maybe this particular one will show more of the indica influence. That's cool 'cause maybe it will finish earlier than I anticipated! It's still too soon to really tell though.
THE GROWBOX: Two 21-gallon rubbermaid totes stacked. Have two pc fans in there on the top level as well as a small personal fan on the lower level. Put some wire storage cubes together to create height, and stacked some old VHS tapes on top of it so the babies can reach the light. I may remove one light bulb once I see just how hot the box gets when I put it in my closet. These strains are supposed to be bred to withstand extreme heat but for my own peace of mind I'd like to keep my temps no higher than 85F. It has been, and will continue to be, much hotter than that outdoors where they have been for the past week, but of course they are getting fresh air so that makes the heat much more tolerable. Hopefully they will do well in their new home. Updates will come later this week.
Much grow love and cannabliss!
