Chimera is back!!! LED single plant grow
Posted 11 December 2011 - 08:36 AM
Start date – 12/8/11
Seed – DNA Genetics – rocklock feminized – freebee from “worldwide marijuana seeds”
Dropped seed in lukewarm water at 10am, by 4pm seed has sunk…transferred to wet paper towel and placed in ziplock bag. Prepared rockwool cube for seedling by placing it into half gallon of water with correct amount of rockwool conditioner and left it for 12hrs. For those who aren’t familiar with rockwool it must be conditioned so that the Ph is in the 5.5-5.8 range, otherwise the Ph is too high. Also for those who might be considering growing in rockwool, you must rinse the conditioner out of the rockwool before using it.
Checked seed to see how it was doing…woohoo:hello: we have tap root and it only took 24hrs!!! Left the seed in paper towel for 4 more hours while setting up mini-bucket.
After setting up the mini-bucket I planted it into the rockwool which intern I put into the net pot and covered with clay pellets. Now the hard part, waiting for it to sprout.
It’s officially on she’s pushed her head through the rockwool and has started opening up. Once she has her first set of true leaves I’ll post picks. So until then have a happy!

My baby's has opened up nicely can't wait for the first set of true leaves, they should be fat ones as its mostly indica 80/20.

Oh by the way, I have added a very small amount of nutrient to my resevior and it now stands at 150ppm, which is what I always start my plants off with, I can just see the tap root emerging from the rockwool so she should really start growing.

Cool, glad to have you on board! Heres a little update for you...from saturday evening to a couple of hours ago the main tap root grew 3+ inches and I have a half a dozen or more new roots poking out of the net pot and making a bee line for the nutes. So I uped the nute level to 250ppm and she's a happy girl. I'll probably be moving her to my five gallon bucket in a couple of days as I don't want her wrapping her roots a round the air stones.

Lets see a pic of that homemade dwc man. im into diy i want to set up a mini dwc for a mother bonsi
Its pretty simple gehtto bubbler, I cut the top off a 3liter pop bottle, dropped a couple of air stone in the bottom and placed a 3.5-inch net pot on top, oh, I modified the net pot by adding a brim around the top by cutting out a top from a plastic 1qrt ice cream container, you can see it in the last pict I posted. But yeah, when I switch my plant over to the five gallon I'll take a couple of picts of it for you.

Looks good, that water has a funny color, but I'm sure that's what it's supposed to look like
Thats floranova for ya, it always tinges the water and stain the roots, but plants sure like it.

Its wrapped with a garbage bag taped on it, however when I was moving things around it came free(bad tape job) and I snapped the picts before I fixed it. But yell its protected from the light, don't need no algea growing in there!
