Hi stoners & growers around the world :Namaste: :welcome:

Back in March 2015, I started my second grow and my first grow journal with a Northern Light Auto from Royal Queen Seeds.
Here is my previous completed journal:

The whole experience was amazing, smoke test was also great but 40 gr wasn't enough :drool:
After a long break from growing, I decided to go through the adventure again. This journal will include two grows in one.

Hey man! Yes, my first journal was fun and a little explicit back in 2015 :goof:
I have a total of 3 plants, 2 Purple Kush seeds and 1 Unknown seed offered by the dude I got the seeds from.

How are you going to keep that light schedule outside?
I am currently thinking of letting this unknown seed grow outside with a 12 hours schedule and focus on the Purple Kush inside with a normal vegetative state (18hrs light - 6hrs dark) due to space available.
Thank you for tuning in to my thread guys. :Namaste:

Update

The germination process is over and successful for all 3 seeds. Done in humid cotton locked in a Tupperware, it took around 36-48 hours for the root to show. slower than previous grow I am also in a different environment with higher temp and lower humidity which could have impact.

Day 0 (Germination process)

Day 3 (germination process)

The smallest seed on the top left is a PK seed, smaller than the other one, you cannot see the root, a few hours later it showed out.

Yesterday, I decided to transfer them in soil. I am using a fresh local bamboo soil which I use for other plants with very successful results.

DAY 1

I settled them in water bottles for the first days and will then transfer them to their 7 gal pot.
They are all under the sunlight atm due to a delay of my light shipment. :nervous-guy: Hopefully should be fine!

PKs are on the top and the unknown is at the bottom of the picture, as you can see one of the PK already decided to show its face, let the journey begin! :yahoo:

bamboo soil sounds interesting, got a pic of the nutrients listed on the bag?
Will you be using any other nutrients?

Hey dude!
The bag has nothing listed on sadly.. It comes straight from the local green market in my area.
I will start using normal vegetative nutes when I transfer them into their 7 gal pot in less than a week.

Never even heard of bamboo based soil.
I assume it must be similar to coco.
Looks like the soil needs aeration.
And if it's just like coco you'll want to water every day with 1/4 strength nutrients.
Yup I also never heard of it before, it is what my local farmer recommended me. I am in South east asia btw.
What do you mean by the soil needing aeration?
Ok great to know about the regular watering, will check how they do first and then will switch to your technique if I see a lack of nutes.
Thanks for your time dude :thanks:

Aeration, such as adding Pumice and biochar into the soil, usually about 30%.
So 70% soil 25% pumice and 5% biochar or something similar

Hey! Here's a quick update, all 3 seeds seem to have sprout! Well at least for both PKs however them seem to be stretching a little, the unknown seed is cuddling with the soil atm :laugh2:
They might be stretching due to little light, I am still waiting on my light to be delivered. This virus thing going on has mess up the timing :11:

DAY 2

Don't mind the temperature, it's a shitty thermometer I bought for 3$ on "eBay", temperature in the room is around 25°C

By the way, I went to ask the farmer (well, my girlfriend did since I can't communicate with him :laugh2:) why he thinks bamboo based soil is great for growing and told me it is due to the high amount of trichoderma produced from the chopped bamboos mixed with the soil. It results in avoiding moisture while letting enough humidity to feed the roots.

Just mix bagged compost in water and aerate it if you can for 24 - 36hrs or more. Can measure food strength in your tea with a ppm pen.Using compost teas regularly, even 50ppm is highly beneficial! Also make sure to use some mycorrhizae on the roots and bottom of transplant hole. They will infect the roots beneficially and can increase the root surface area by 100's-1000's over time ;) lookin good so far!!
