    THE GROW DETAILS
    Seeds:
    One Feminized Pure Power Plant (PPP)
    One Big Bud
    One Unknown from bank
    Three Bag seed
    After the second week, only RO water was used
    Note: The only females and survivors turned out to be the Big Bud, the unknown which looks like Big Bud so I am calling it Big Bud and the single PPP.

    ===
    PRE:
    The germination -
    Soaked paper towel with tap water
    Placed seeds on towel, folded and placed in sealed plastic bag on top of computer tower (for warmth).
    While I waited for germination cleaned and prepped hydro system with Flora Shield
    Filled back up reservoir with tap water
    ===
    24 HOURS LATER
    Big Bud, Unknown, and one bag seed cracked
    24 HOURS LATER
    PPP cracked and PPP, Big Bud, Unknown and one bag all showing taproot
    Placed in Rapid Rooter pellets and put in tray with humidity dome under florescent lights.
    24 HOURS LATER
    PPP, Big Bud, Unknown and two bag seed showing cotyledons and one other bag is showing taproot through bottom of rapid rooter
