Well here I go! I was a little busy the past week but got photos each day to document.

I'll edit this to be more formal in a little bit.

Things are moving smoothly along now...getting in the groove.

I up potted the Zamdelica clones so they don't start complaining, and the GSC babies still have a week or two more before needing to up-pot. They're on the 3rd set of leaves now...

Veg week One (1) + 7 days above soil today!

I'll probably be emptying all the other plants out of the tent when they get up-potted too, or before, since the weather is nice enough for them all to be put outside soon.

I noticed this the other day but it's becoming more obvious now. The plant growing best now is in a bigger pot. Maybe 50% bigger. That plant is taller with larger leaves. That seed, however, started out faster, with a longer, straight root that I gave extra space for when planting. Check the first picture in the journal and you can see which seed I'm referring to, the lighter one in the middle. The other two are close enough right now and from their start that they're equal. They are in the same size pot though.

Anyway, food for thought. I guess I'll start ironing out the other variable, which might be two plants getting @GeoFlora Nutrients solely while the other gets my regular random tests (megacrop at slightly less than the recommended dose with their other supplements added randomly).

The one on the left certainly isn't hanging about. Nice.

They're all still in tiny pots, but the one on the left (I think I gave her #3) is in a pot 2x the size of the others. It's obvious the initial pot size makes a difference, eh? That seed however, also was a little different than the other two, with a straight root when I put it in the soil, whereas the other two had curly roots. Does it mean anything? IDK.

We are now at 16 days above soil. I could/should top these girls now and start the #quad, but I'm hesitating, waiting for confirmation from @GeoFlora Nutrients on shipping so I can decide when they'll get up potted. They're definitely running out of space in their current pots. They're already pushing out the 7th node so topping now would be great timing. @Weed Seeds Express, I'm getting a pretty nice single phenotype here it looks like for all 3.

So I went the other direction first and took off the bottom two nodes of the girls in preparation for the #quad and up putting this weekend into the 1 gallon pots. They're ready to top already and have a thick stem too so they'll be trained for at least a month to stay low. I will note that they are almost all the same height and growth. The tallest is only about 1/2 cm taller than the other two so that close enough. Once they are all in equal size pots the gloves are off and it's a nutrient comparo!

And I have to thank our other generous sponsors @Sierra Natural Science, @GeoFlora Nutrients, and @Prescription Blend for providing me the opportunity to use their products and show what they can do.

Christmas in April!!

Above the pipettes came from @Prescription Blend but forgot in their picture but I think they'll be totally useful for @Sierra Natural Science as well. Thanks!

Both of other two plants will begin the up potting with the products provided by our sponsors and going forward I will be adding sns209 as a preventative. I haven't settled on if I will be using 3 or 5 gallon pots for the final pot yet. This will be an exciting challenge!
