They were definitely hungry, I see them greening up more since last feeding and this mornings feeding. Temps and humidity are staying consistent, ppm is 505 ec 1.2, power from light is around 60%.

I need to think about training soon, most will be LST but thinking I will top the bigger Blue Dream, maybe Quadline.

Charlotte's Web are looking great I fed them this morning. will be happy to get them in the tent soon.

Train Wreck is a slow start hopefully it isn't another dud.
20220107_165347.jpg

Speaking of duds the 2 Charlotte's Web I tried to crack in soil hasn't done anything yet, I tried @Moony , I have no doubts this would have worked with good seeds.
I definitely plan to start getting better genetics from sponsors on here.

So with all the talk about auto's I couldn't resist, I'll make room lol
Soaked a Cotton Candy auto flower seed in water last night and just planted it in a 2 or 3 gallon pot, I had Gaia Green amendments, I stayed low I think adding to the soil/promix, I can top dress when needed.
1 tbl all purpose 4-4-4
1.5 tbl power bloom 2-8-4
1 tbl oyster shell flour
few handfuls of worm castings
couple tbl powdered toasted egg shells
few tbl epsom salt.
I'm sure there's other supplements I could be adding please feel free to chime in, I'm still kind of a newbie lol
I also have soluble seaweed extract 0-0-17. I can either use as a foliar spray which is recommended or feed to soil.
20220107_180950.jpg

Should I be wetting the soil out farther?
I figure I should be spraying water inside the bottle couple times a day?
Weather is crazy today it's been non stop, won't be fun digging out tomorrow with this bum shoulder ugh

I think I was a little too hesitant to up the nutrients when needed, hopefully I didn't hurt them.

Did some training tonight, starting with Blue Dream I Quadlined,
20220108_224854.jpg

Top leaves of the smaller one something going on, hopefully next feeding is all she needs.
So what I did to Quadline was cut off number 1 and 2 nodes, leave 3 and 4 and cut the 5th off,
20220108_225349.jpg

I won't have room to do a full Quadline but I'll get as many tops as possible,
20220108_225504.jpg

On sticky glue cross I used my plant clips, they are made by a local guy on his 3D printer, they are really easy to use,

I am liking how this strain is looking, could be a bushy plant.
I am maxed for photos in this post, I'll continue next post.

I see that Rockstar Hashi is in last post lol
But I used pipe cleaners to bend them over, I'll get some tops so I can clone and sex them and get them to their new home.
20220108_224832.jpg

Train Wreck is looking like one, she hasn't moved lol
20220108_223634.jpg

Charlotte's Web are looking fine still in quarantine, no pics.
Couple hours shoveling a foot of snow today with my shoulder awaiting surgery has me mellow highly medicated tonight, Wedding Cake I grew outside last summer cured up very nice, it seems to be great for pain management, dab of rso under the tongue followed by a couple ml cbd tincture helps too lol

Blue Dream after topping,

A before and after shot of leaf tucking to expose new tops on Sticky Glue,

20220109_134413.jpg

Cotton Candy, I got a seed to crack in soil @Moony , I soaked it in water over night first.

20220109_134829.jpg

Charlotte just got trimmed,
20220109_162202.jpg

I will cut those bottoms left on for clones,
20220109_162908.jpg

The younger Charlotte clone is looking great, should have 2 nice plants to grow for this journal,

Looking awesome. They all look healthy as, Nice work
Oh! Congratulations on the birth of a new addition to the cannabis family .
Thanks Paul much appreciated,
I hope you resolve your pest issue soon, have you tried essential oils,
I use this as a preventative I'm not sure how it will work on a infestation in progress,
I mix a few drops of each oil in a fine mist glass spray bottle with water and a drop of dish soap, for the oils to stick to, peppermint, roesmary, lemongrass, citronella, lavender, I don't spray on the plants but around the pots and stems, floor inside and outside the tent once a week or so, sometimes I get slack lol. This is my third grow without any pest issues and praying for more.

We have some essential oils, so I will give that a go, just in case. At least the room will smell nice :laugh:
This is my first grow with pests. Its the cheap compost I bought, as I'm normally super carefull about bringing stuff in from outside and thrips are not something I've had in my outside garden before.
But I will definitely get preventive spraying, thanks for that.

Hey @gazmufc thanks for stopping by, do you have a grow going with it now ?
Hey, unfortunately not yet. I've tried to grow cannabis twice before.. Had wrong equipment and very much wrong know how.

Ive been saving for some time now to get the quality gear for it. I bought a 120x120x130 tent, and Rhino carbon filter.. Got 12gl x 2 fabric pits. 2 seeds, 1 x wedding cake, and 1 x Girl scout cookies.
Have to get dehumidifier, the usual gages for environmental readings, soil and amendments to order yet.
But my light is bought and paid for. My god am like a kid waiting for Xmas to come.
Been watching a lot of grows with the fce6500, and it is a great light. There's guys on YouTube pulling 2lb from one plant with that light. Most be pulling at least 25 - 30oz with it.
Am actually caught between a rock and a hard place. Would like to do 1 big plant, but I'd also like to have 2 different strains to smoke at the end.. Yikes, which way to run!!
When I get the final things I need to get going am defo gonna do a journal here so a can get a little help along the way. The knowledge growers have here would put me to shame.

Hey you are almost there especially with that light, when I started I went with a bigger tent and a tsw2000 was all I could afford but I knew I'd upgrade eventually, I already had a hps for the other half of the tent, I pulled off around 19 oz under that 2000 with 4 plants on my first attempt so winning this new light really excites me, this community helped with that you are right there's a lot of knowledge from the growers on here, as good as you can get imo, and willing to help with every aspect of growing. Ya I felt a little out of my league when I first joined but then realized the support from here is over the top.
I love different flavors and that makes it hard with limited space lol, another reason I went with a bigger tent, but with this grow I swore I'd do one strain for this journal under the new light, that changed to 2 and now I added a auto flower lol, and the other half of the tent I'll use the tsw2000 for more. Someday I will grow only 1 plant under this light I swear lol

I have the 2 Charlotte's Web in the tent now I'd like to get them in 5 gallon pots soon.
20220111_215751.jpg

Used pipe cleaners to start training tops on Blue Dream,
20220111_220451.jpg

I don't know what's going on with the smaller Blue Dream the discoloration, I'm feeding it same food as the older plants, growth seemed to have slowed also. They all are pale compared to Charlotte.
20220111_215826.jpg

Cotton Candy,
20220111_220622.jpg

Train Wreck, she's growing so I'm not giving up on her yet lol
20220111_215853.jpg

The other plants are under the tsw2000 now till I figure out what I'm keeping, will start cloning soon to sex them.

Lovely girls...hey, I have had plenty that just started off slower and had weird color...same care, 100%. Just the seed. Give her time, I'm sure she will catch up

Both Charlotte's Web and one Blue Dream in their final pots today, starting to look like a grow.
20220113_151439.jpg

20220113_150751.jpg

I will add a 4th plant at some point, either the other Blue Dream or Train Wreck.
Cotton Candy is growing, I will fit her in somewhere.
20220113_151720.jpg

The other side is starting to get some colour back, I have work to do to get these sexed.

Plants look ready for takeoff and those are nice looking pots! Are you thinking about training the taller Charlotte wide so it doesn't get too much taller than the others in there?
