Since this garden is in full swing I'll go ahead and start with the clones for the lazy SOG I run
6 White Widow Clones have been propogated in the R2D2 cloning droid and then moved to to veg with two 1 week old Yumbolt 47 seedlings

The clones have been in veg for three days and have only been fertilzed with Bio Marine. The seedlings have not had any fertilizer and are just now starting to be fed regular tap water instead of bottled spring water.

Here we see the six clones in good health seated in 3 liter Air Pots and the two Yumbolt seedlings in good health seated in 4"x6" Air Pots

In the bloom hut I have 2 mama plants and 2 medium plants in bloom. 1 mama has been in here for 4 weeks and the other xxl mama has been in for one week. The two medium plants have also been in bloom for only one week.

If you posted R2D2 in your last journal I missed it...that is friggin' great man! Subscribed!
Yeah he was there Brother! I did the posting on 4/20. The link to my old journal above in the room description will take you right to the R2D2 spread!

Well Hot Dawg!

Game On!!!



---OB, perhaps post a link on your last journal to this one? I just stumbled across this new one. Unless of course you're hiding from people, :3:
Well I am hiding from this maniac!

I'm working on tying everything together now. Also need to update my sig. But I'll be sure to "jump" over there and add a link

Since I dont deal with seedlings very often I want to go ahead and go into detail on these two Yumbolts while they're still young.

The young lady on the left is 11 days old and the one on the right is 9 days old.

We see that they have set the first three sets of true leaves and are now producing the first set of 5 point fan leaves. At the same time their stalks are beginning to firm up. In another day or two they will no longer be seedlings but young little plants.

To date these seedling have had minimal care. For me it's important to not fuss over and handle the youngin' at this stage. I pretty much plant them and let them do their thing for the first couple weeks.

The 2 seeds were germinated in wet toilet paper on a window sill. I do not use any hormones or fertilzer for germinating. After they sprouted they have only be given enough bottled Spring water to keep the soil moist for the first week. After the first week they have been watered with standard tap water. The soil in constantly moist but it's not mud

Next week they will get their first taste of Bio Marine at less than half the light feeding recommendations and I'll gradually increase their fertilzer with each application.

In 1-2 weeks they will be transplanted to larger Air Pots for the anticipated aggressive growth pattern they should be entering at that time.

2 weeks after that they should be giving up their first clones.

On a side note you can see how fast this thing will go without having to deal with presexing the young plants. In the time the whole presexing ordeal would take I will already have identified a mother plant, taken clones , and be one the first cycle of the SOG. All without having wasted any time, soil, space, electricity, and nutes on male plants. IMO buying feminized seeds is well worth the extra cash.

I gotta agree on the Fem seeds. Assuming they have the same potency, which I think these days most do - the fem is the way to go if not breeding.

And man, once you get into clones, life becomes even better.

Enjoying the Ride. Break..Break.. I got a 4-20 in progress... gotta go investigate!

Welcome Aboard J!
Glad you like the new digs!
It's about to get kinda interesting. I'm working on plans right now to install a water line directly into my grow room!

Hopefully by the end of the week my water packing days are over!:cheer::cheer::cheer::cheer::439:

Love this place man!

OB, load the rig and head north, hammer down!

Got a load of beer and bud for transport, oh and an elephant if you can fit back there. (Or am I messing up my trucker movies, was that Cannonball Run 2) :3:

Love the grow man!
Yeah man the elephant was in Smokey part 2. Cannonball run was pretty cool too though! Lots of fast cars and fast women! My kind of flick! I have 'em all on dvd. I also recommend Burt's movie "Gator" Fast cars, moonshine, dirty sheriffs, beat downs, and Burt get the "Shaky Pudding" from his partners girl! :439:
