Germination: took 24 hours
wetted paper towel(for moisture)
placed paper towel in cd case(keep moisture in)
wrapped bathroom hand towel around cd case(keep it dark)
put hand towel under cable modem(keep it warm)
Placed seedlings in rapid rooters to increase rooting time-worked well saw lil roots and seeds actually popped within 24 hours.
Growing Mother plants in soil then will be taking cuttings every 2 weeks to Veg. After two weeks of Vegging will go into Station 1 of 4 Flowering Stations. Every two weeks will rotate one additional stations for a perpetual harvest. I'm also building a 4 day bud Dryer for fast buds.
Veg Method Thus far:
Currently 1 week and 4 days into Vegging at time of writing
Fill 5 gallon Bucket with water and leave under fluoros to remove chlorine... let sit atleast 24 hours before use. Measured PH 7... Measured TDS 130ppm
I use a 1 gallon water jug to fill up from the 5 gallon settled water and then add a cap full of Super Plant Tonic and a 1/3 cap full of Silica Blast. I use these two additives because Super Plant Tonic includes Mycorrhizal Bacteria which is beneficial to plants. It helps them absorb nutrients and contributes to the overall health of the plant. I use silica blast in an effort to promote healthier and Thicker stems; this means they will be able to support heavy buds when it comes time.
As far as the soil and nutrients go for the 5 'HOPEFUL' mothers I need nothing extra for now. When I added the Scott's Premium soil to the containers(walmart cookie jars with holes drilled in bottom for leakage) I also mixed in a handful of Kelp Extract, handful of Bat Guano and a handful of Worm Castings. This has proven to be more than enough food for the young 'HOPEFUL' mothers. I started at 24/0 for one week then switched to 18/6 because my internodes were 'TOO CLOSE'(WTF??? lol) but yeah it happened. I had to let my plants STRETCH-weird huh?
At Week 1 and 1 day my plants begin to reak and stink up the entire upstairs of a 2 floor house. I added Carbon filters to no avail as well as 3x MedTech UVC Air Purifiers. Just yesterday I added 1 small ozone generator and problem was solved. You know what at 1 week and 3 days my plants smelled as though they were in week 1 of Flowering from what I had experienced in past grows....fucked up huh?
I water as need to by touch... if the soil is dry I water.. my analog Ph meter also has a moisture meter which comes in useful but tbh I don't really need it it's easy to tell. Each time they get watered they receive a dose of super plant tonic + silica blast as it is premixed in each gallon of water.
