    Hello everybody! Long time lurker here, finally got around to setting everything up and popping some Pure Power Plant seeds from Nirvana purchased @ Southern Oregon seeds.

    Medium is 50/50 Happyfrog/Pearlite & MEGACROP by Greenleaf Nutrients.

    Germinated 5 PPP seeds on 8/26. 1 of them looked very immature, didn’t have high hopes for it.

    3/5 popped the soil on 8/28. 1 week later the other 2 didnt pop. 1 of them being the runt seed, the other had a shriveled tap root? appears it got stuck in its own shell. Thanks for looking & more updates to come!

    1st photo was on the 28th, last 2 photos is today.

    I grew ppp back in 2008 or 2009 and found a wonderful plant that had a honeycombs cereal type smell and rock hard dense buds. Hope you find something nice.

    Right on, I’m hoping for something good. I chose PPP because its supposed to be a beginner friendly strain. I plan to clone these for the experience, all around I’m trying to learn as much as I can and move on to much better genetics. Legally allowed to grow 4 in my state.

    Update: Daily growth, looking great. Thinking of purchasing a swamp cooler, being in the desert I’m dealing with 30-35% rh with wet towels but they don’t seem to mind. 14 days after germination, also I’m terrible at taking pictures.

    Not much to update today. They are starting to get very thirsty, opened the tent to see them wilted 30 or so hours after the last water, watered them every 3-4 days before that so something to keep in mind, node stacking looking great and nice growth daily.

    Picture was taken this morning after finding them very sad and thirsty and giving them a good watering last night.

    New update, ran into my first hurdle. Came home after work to find them droopy again on Thursday, no biggy because the solo cups felt bone dry so just a quick drink. I already planned on this next watering being the 1st feed & noticed the lower leaves starting to lighten up anyways so I started Megacrop @ 1g per gallon. I think I over watered this time though, saturating the whole cup. This medium is very airy so I wasn’t that worried but they have remained droopy since. The cups were light again today and noticed they had started to wilt even more so I gave them a small amount of water, about the same I would give before I ran into this problem. I would also like to note that 2 out of the 3 are the only ones showing these symptoms, the other hasn’t been affected and is happily growing.

    Edit: Nutrients were Ph’d to 6.3-6.5 before going in. I use the liquid fresh water dropper test so it’s hard to get an exact number but easy to get it within range.

    Quick update! Transplanted into 5 gallon pots yesterday from the solo cups. Seems to have done the trick and they perked up, one of them still being a little fussy but she’ll come around. Thanks for looking!

    Pics are before and after. 24 hours apart

    Edit: It won’t let me edit my OP but I’d like to mention I will be flowering with a 600w or 1000w HPS I haven’t decided yet, heat wont be an issue in the central Oregon winter. If I do go with the 600w the 315 LEC would be used for supplemental lighting. More interested in the UV from the LEC w/ the HPS.

    9-19 Update. 23 days after germination. I am feeding MegaCrop @ 2g per gallon now and soon to be 3. Back to seeing daily growth again, going to top soon and throw up a scrog net, also should I cut the faded lower leaves from when they were unhappy in the solo cups? Just picked up a 6” Blockbuster AC reflector for $50 on CL last night and gonna throw a 1000w in there when I flower. Slight overkill but with a scrog and the foot print blockbusters put out It will be a monster. Thanks for looking!
