  6. Almost lost my seedling thanks to the shell + the extra material that the seedling is wrapped up in
    I had to go in and use a toothpick to remove the remaining shell and the extra material
    I gave the seedling 1 day (about 18 hours) to try to open up herself
    First pic is yesterday the second this morning

  10. Yesterday was soooo hot in my grow area it had me fearing for my baby's life (the plant) :p
    Luckily she is mostly indica so she should be able to stand a little heat I'm hoping :)
    I have to wait until Friday to get the temps under control :mad:
    At this point she has already been fed twice

    Big Update

    After prolonged exposure to temps ranging from 88-91*F for 4 days straight I have finally been able to gain control of the heat
    Ended up purchasing a long awaited piece of equipment that will allow me to use a higher watt HID in future grows
    Temps being a factor in my purchasing of the 150w HPS

    As far as a slowed or stopped growth though out the extreme temps, the plant seemed to continue to endure like a champ
    As can be seen by the pictures taken 5 days prior when the heat wave was beginning
    She was showing signs of heat stress in the form of the leaf edges pointing upwards, which was to be expected ;)

    Also due to unforseen events I have had to induce the 12/12 schedule 10 days earlier then I wanted to
    Its all good though I am still going to enjoy the end resulting budz :D

    The first pic was last night at lights out, to give a better view of the color without the HPS on
    The other is todays

  13. I was pleasantly surprised by the sour kush odor my plant was giving off today
    Makes me wish I had some to smoke :(

    And that portable a/c kicks @ss :metal:
  14. It will be worth the wait, great producer, she does have a distinct odor early on in veg that only gets more potent thru the grow

    So far so good
    She has been an easy plant thus far
    Hopefully she remains that way but I don't foresee any problems

    Yes I am smelling it everyday now
    I love it, can't wait :smoke:

    Edit: Wanted to add that she had stretched a little bit more than average between the 4th and 5th internodes

    Ok so she appears to have stopped stretching for the moment
    She began at the 4th inter-node and continued to the 6th but now it looks like normal growth before the stretch
    Standing now near a foot tall and wide

    She is bushy yet a little stringy compared to my LSD which was defiantly a bush
    She is also loving the flowering nutes I gave her about a week ago
    Nothing yet as far as pistils or anything special

    Edit: Yesterday she stretched between the 5th and 6th internode this time
