3rd grow 1st journal. I'm looking forward to this journal because I'm expanding my growing technique and will be doing things for the very first time. Gonna need a lot of Input from you guys on this site. So here's a little background on where I'm at. First grow was in my son's 4x8 tent with two t8 4ft eight bulb fixtures. Got 21 zips out of ten different plants. Second grow was moved to my walk in closet because the big ole tent in my bedroom wasn't working. To many grandkids running around. I grew 4 white widow autos (1lb of buds that are still curing). At the same time I started 3 crown royale's photo from seeds and 2 photo clones. Upgraded light to a kind xl1000. Grew them all under this light as you know autos light schedule is the same as photo vegging. I'm in the process of completing my new veg/clone/drying room. It's done enough to to start my seedlings and clones which I did yesterday. They are under one of my t8 lights with two bulbs lit. In my flower room I have just today flipped my three crown royale's and the two clones.
Flower room:
Size- 6x6x8
Light- Kind XL1000
Exhaust- 6"
Intake- passive 8"×14"
Temp- 78-83
RH- 25-40 (I'm getting a humidifier soon)
Light- on/off 12/12

Seedling room: 3x5
Light: t8
Intake- passive 8"×14"
Exhaust- 4"
Temp- 75
RH- 35
Light- on 24/7

I've started nine seeds and I have nine clones. Gonna see how many survivors will be left as they transfer into my veg room. As I only have room for eight in my flower room this is my plan. Take one of the "New" plants and make her a mother. Take a clone from her and using clodial silver make some pollen. Which I will then go back and grow momma out to impregnate her with her own clone. Very excited to make some of these seeds. They were expensive and are supposed to be top quality. I'll take the best eight to the flower room. Cross my fingers all will go as planned. I'm sure to cross many bumps throughout this journey
I have the utmost respect for this community to help me in all the problems that may arise. Here's a few pictures of what I've got so far.

Things are moving along quite well in the seed/clone room. Seven of the nine seeds broke the surface in the last ten hours. Which puts them at about 48 hours after they were planted. Already have a much better success rate than the last seeds I planted. Only got four of eight seeds to harvest and two of them were stressed out in the seedling stage. Still didnt do things right as six of the seven that popped up still had their shells on them. I had to carefully remove them this morning. Hope I didnt damage any of them. The clones seem to be doing good. I took the cover off them for 30 minutes this morning. Two of the nine were sagging but the rest of them were standing tall. If I'm right i think the two that started sagging haven't rooted well yet but the other seven seem to be building roots already. Its day three in the dirt for them. The flower room are starting day three of 12/12 on/off. Not much change yet. Tonight I will start applying collodial silver to a couple of branches of my feminized crown royale. This is my first attempt at this procedure. I want to get the experience under my belt because my goal is to learn how to do this for my girls in veg. With the hope of making pollen from the "New" plant (expensive seeds I got from Humboldt). With that pollen my plan is to use it to back pollinate the mother plant and cross pollinate the white widow and Alaskan purple. So much work, so much fun. I can only hope that the plan will be a success. Here are some pictures.

Another seed popped up yesterday. Now its 8 seeds of 9 are above ground. Thrilled to death about that and just waiting to see if the last is gonna pop or not. All 9 clones held there own out of the dome for 45 minutes. When I get home from work today they will all get the one hour out of some test. If they look solid after the hour out I will put the domes away until my next clone cuttings are harvested. The girls in the flower room are starting their stretch. Actually they started yesterday as I noticed when the lights came on yesterday morning. Starting fifth day of 12/12 light ing this morning. Started applying the collodial silver last night on my crown royale in the flower room. But I think I should of started applying it two week ago. Will.keep applying at lights on and lights off every day until she either flowers of until the nanners are opening up. Here's the latest pictures of the flower room and the clones. No new ones of the seedlings today. May take some tonight and post them. Happy green growing everyone.

Happy holidays to all. May you all share great memories with your families.
On to the growing rooms. Took all the girls.out of the flower room this morning so I could get a picture of each one individually. Flipped them on 12-17 and they are in stretch mode now. They have good color and I must say I'm real happy with the mega crop nutrients. Going to try and finish them out without having to add any other supplement. I'll be keeping a real close eye on them. In the clone/seedling area things are going both good and not so good. The eight of nine seeds that came up are coming along real good. The ninth seed I dug into the soil and found the tap root on top of the seed and a little discolored. I got the small tap root under the seed and gave it some water. It may come up it may die. Only time will tell. Of the nine clones I have I may have been a little optimistic on my last report when I said I thought 7 of the nine had rooted. Seems like 3 or 4 are not doing as well as the other ones. It's been a week and I still have them under there little domes. Had them out of there domes for an hour this morning. Five seemed to be good without there domes and the other four were sagging.a.bit. I'm following beezs way of cloning so I'm not giving up on any of them just yet. I was surprised that when I lifted the seedling solo cups yesterday they were empty of water and I had to water them. It had only been 6 days since I planted them in the soil. I've got lots.of pictures today so enjoy. Any help offered would be appreciated. Any questions are welcome. The first three pictures are of my crown royale's from seed and the next one is strawberry kush clone the last one is an unknown clone. Then there's two pictures of my clones with there domes on them. The next picture is of the seed the I dug out and re-adjusted the tap root. You can see it its left of center. The next picture is a picture of three Alaskan purple and three white widow seedlings. The last picture is one of the two (the New seeds from Humboldt). Grow green....

Been a few days since I've updated the progress in my grow rooms. I'm losing some of my nine clones, four or five are on the edge of the cliff and may fall. I think four are for sure solid but who knows. Seedlings are doing good its day eight for them and they are growing. Seen the tap root at them bottom on the solo cup so I would expect the tops to start growing with more vigor. The babes in the flower room look to have slowed theie stretching down. The mc nutrients are doing a great job. The color of green is real good. Even down on the lower fan leaves. Could humidity have caused my fan leaves to die off starting at the bottom and then progressing upward as the weeks of flowering went on. That's what happened on my last grow. By the time I cut them down a majority of the fan leaves and some of the sugar leaves had died off. The humidity was low averaging 25rh with 75 to 80 temperatures. I was seeing the same problem this grow so I got an humidifier and now the humi6is between 38 and 54 with the temps running 72 to 77. I think the fans leaves are looking healthier now
I will keep everyone posted on the progress. Its day 11 since I flipped over and I'm starting to see some pistols up top so tomorrow will probably be day one of flower. Here are some pictures. Sorry I still dont know how to put info on each individual picture. If anyone can help guild this old man in this endeavor it would be much appreciated.
