I am growing some reg strains. All three of each popped, and are growing in the garden.
Chemdawg X 4SD
OZ Super Deluxe
Jack Herer X 4SD
I bought four fems from Attitude, but only one popped, the Northern Lights. I lost Coletrain, Paki-Ryder, and Crean Caramel. I tried planting them with a small root, and they didn't make it. I'm going back to my longer root 1/2 inch system.
The other nine should be showing sex here soon. I am hoping for at least one female from each strain.
The seedz sprouted May 12th. I put them into the same soil from the garden while vegging indoors.
I planted them into the garden on June 15th (full moon.) to get the roots established. And a bit later than I usually do, due to the weather conditions around here being unstable.
The garden soil consists of:
Aged cow and horse manure
Sphagnum peat moss
And naturally composted organic materials (meaning dead roots and stems from vegies)
and local sandy soil.
For 2011, I added some more topsoil, a bucket of worm castings, and some Fox Farm Happy Frog to the mix.
The soil is like the consistancy of flour. It compacts, yet falls apart easily, and drains rapidly. I will be using the Fox Farm trio, which consists of Grow Big, Tiger Bloom, and Big Bloom. I might use some Beasty Blooms and Cha-ching this year as well.
Here are a few pics of them indoors. No outdoor pics yet, but are coming soon.
