    hey guys, hope you're all having a fantastic day.
    just starting up on my second grow, this time around i bought quality seeds though.
    Chocolate frosted sherbert is a cross between Sunset Sherbert x Chocolate frosting.
    Chocolate frosting is a cross between NorCal Dos-Si-Dos x Mint Chocolate Chip.
    both bred by Honest Genetics.
    let's get with the details about my grow really quick here.
    i'm in a 4x2 tent
    i'm running 1x viparspectra 300w and 1x viparspectra 600w.
    I will be using FFOF soil, amended with gypsum.
    I'm also using fox farm nutrients.
    i'd love to hear any comments/suggestions that you may have, so feel free to reply below.

    happy growing!

    Hope you're all having a magnificent day.
    around 30 minutes ago, i planted 2 out of 3 of the seeds. the top left seed in the picture above won't pop, i added one more seed to germination, just incase she fails.
    i watered the pots around a half gal of water each with about 20%-30% runoff, also added more perlite to them.

    small update!
    the top left seed still hasn't popped a taproot. the one i added monday is already in the soil starting her life. i also placed a purple frosting (purple punch x chocolate frosting) into germ today.
    no coytledons yet, hopefully will have one or two tomorrow.

    nothing interesting yet. very red/purpe root going up to the coytledon but this is more then likely genetic

    1st seedling is off to a great start, i haven't watered any of these plants once yet. waiting for them to show me they want to be watered, before i water them. this plant is starting to get rid of it's cotyledon, which is normal, as it has it's 3 sets of leaves to work on. pics follow below -

    seedling #2 is also doing great, only has some wind burn which i feel like is making it grow a little slower. there hasnt been anymore progressive windburn on the new growth/growth that hasn't been hit by wind, so we're good. she's also a little bit droopy, maybe from the wind, or she may just want a water. we'll see in a day. pics follow.

    seedling #3 is doing amazing, no problems at all yet.

    overall off to a great start, we already have some pretty thick stalks for the age the plants are. can't wait to see what the future brings.[/spoiler]

    alrighty. update time.
    LST is going good on #1 and #3, both showing nodes already, while my other baby(#2) that i didn't lst is still catching up slowly, but surely.
    #1 - i've had to get her stem straightened out, because she was all over the place before so i simply let her to towards the sun for a but, without the restraints on her. that worked, continueing lst today. you can see the first set of her nodes are starting to form, slower then #3's nodes, as they've gotten more light, since i didnt have to fix her. she'll be ready to get topped in about a week or so from now. pics follow

    #2 - no lst on this plant, she's having some problems with her bottom set of single fan leaves, i think wet soil hit her while i was watering her the other day. we have plenty other healthy nodes to work with though, so we should be okay, i'm not gonna stress it too much. if you know what this is, feel free to comment. other then that, she's going just as strong as the rest of my babies. just has some catching up to do with her nodes.

    #3 - I've been favoring this one over all my plants, she's just doing better then all of them, from her node structure, to growth rate. we've got some nice nodes popping out already on her, gonna top her sonner then the rest of the plants. she's lookiung to get rid of the cotyledon, as well. pics follow.

    just topped seedling #1, gonna do some testing with topping and see when it's best for me to top in my environment. all systems are a go.

    hope everyones day is going fine. just a little update on the garden. i topped the rest of my plants, as well as haulted lst for now, while i get a scrog net and prepare my plants for that. gonna start of with seedling #1, as always.
    #1 - we have some REALLY nice node structures, i believe atleast. my top 2 nodes are nice and close up to eachother, making them both act like main nodes, from what i can tell. i have great energy going into both of them, but the bottom node is falling behind a bit, especially the single fan leaf. we're gonna have to start nutes on her pretty soon,(starting to become deficient in N) if i'm going to it's gonna be a very light dose, and i'm gonna do a somewhat heavy water once dried up after. pics follow.

    #2 - last time we had some problems with #2, fortunately enough it came to a stop once my soil dried up a bit. after that stopped, i topped her (on 9/21), i'm hoping that we can still get a node out of that single fan leaf i have at the bottom of this plant, but it's not looking too promising, if i'm being honest. but the 2 nodes that will produce from the top look to be promising, due to the amount of energy that can be sucked in from the fan leaves. (5 fingers, 3 fingers) so we're looking good on #2, still. no major problems. pics follow.

    #3 - last time i said this was my favorite plant, but turns it i got #1 and #3 mixed up, so it's #1 that's my favorite (woops) the growth on this plant seems to be significantly slower, due to the shitty lst job i did previously (never doing that again this early..) there's not much to #3, she hasn't popped out any nodes, but is getting there, i only topped her yesterday (9/21) so i can't expect too much, like how the growth is on #1. pics follow.

    Purple frosting!
    i tried to pop one of these seeds along with my chocolate frosted sherbert, but i tried a new method of germination, and it didnt go over well, so i restarted a few days ago, and i just planted today. pics follow.

    hope all is well for everyone today. woke up my plant #2 thirsty, and #1 wanting what looks like PK. gonna start nutes VERY lightly.
    less then half what's recomended.
    .25tsp big bloom .50 tsp grow big.
    big bloom will cover the PK for the next few weeks, grow big should keep them nice and green until then as well. i'm hoping for a smoother run with nutrients, gonna do everything i can to make this my perfect run. have a good day everyone.

    just an update, overwatered my plant #2 on accident, she'll be okay though. it seems like she's having some airation problems throughout the pot, so i may add more perlite on the topsoil soon.

    okay, turns out i didn't over water plant #2, shes praying more than ever now.
    did a VERY light watering with nutrients on plant #1, hopefully she will react well do that. i did half of 1/8th of a tsp of grow big, and the same with big bloom. i gave her a light watering, so that if she acts harshly to it, i can water it out in a few days.

    my sisters boyfriend of 2 years ended up walking into my room, finding out about the grow op. less than 2 weeks later my sister dumps him on bad terms, and he joked about telling.
    my mentality is if he joked about it he'd do it, so i'm not taking any risks. i'll be back in a month or so, and will do even better hopefully.
