Hi all, I wanted to start a journal, in the spirit of having one more spot on the grass city where any random amount of comments, suggestions, and criticisms might be amalgamated. A year long hiatus from posting pictures of a timely relevance, and I have found some more pictures to impress you all with the challenges that I will fumble over before a decent crop might be achieved. they are not of the greatest quality but hey, it's a start. here's an exhaustive ''metadata'' : the larger plants are all clones, six in total that a friend donated my way. Met at the hydro store of all places LOL. one of them died when it was underwatered and is not in the images. the others had deeper roots apparently.. the living five are two smaller plants in flower, two flowering clones in veg (one of which has yet to pull into veg), and the tall plant in veg (ready to bloom imo). the larger plant in flower is a F-I from a co-op. Then theres the seven seedlings in veg. The large one is a tangerine dream, the medium three are ace of spades, and the small three are ''sticky bud'' a hybrid developed in a town near whistler, canada. In case you wonder where the other two spades and three TD's are, I failed to germinate them. my total germination rate is currently 7/18. Don't worry though, I believe I can hit %80-90 now. trial and error thing going on. Other thing's going on there in flower is transplant stress because they were just moved to the DIY smart pots yesterday. the root balls were too big so the coco isn't filled in the sides. Also I have been using neem oil for the last two weeks. I am hoping it will not stunt the plants, reducing their yield.
