    good news bad news update.

    bad news,

    most of the seeds i bought have bit the dust. oh well, I prob. shouldn't have even tried to germinate them when I am so busy, i can't monitor them closely enough to do it the way i like doing it.

    I tried something new and failed. but i think i know what i did wrong, so hey, live and learn. I'm not sweatin it. half of them were free anyways, lol.

    I still have not had the time to fix my heat problem. i have the door open and fans, which work for now, but it is not stealthy, and probhits me having guests :( needs to be fixed before i have a visitor in early july at the latest

    good news,

    I have auto lemon skunk fem's on the way, should be here next week.

    The 4 Snow ryders are looking great. . . man talk about TIGHT INTERNODES!!! these are the shortest plants I have ever seen, with a brilliant resistance to stretching. the stems from the second set of leaves are actually touching the seedling leaves on 2 of them, and the others are not far above.

    I have the few sprouts that made it in the wheel now too, i hope they're fems, lol.

    I got my trimeter while I was away, and it is up and running now, but i have ran out of calibration solutions, so its not right yet. i will get some more solution tomorrow.

    i am gonna order some more snowryders i think. in memory of the lost seedlings. lol. these ones look so friggen sweet, I want more. and it will keep me a bit more mono culture so I will make my nute reg a bit easier on myslef.

    pics after I make them pretty.

    oh btw, tor,

    yeah, before owning one, i hadn't considered the limiting factor of the effect of plant size vs. shrinking canopy radius. the shorter the plant, the larger the sog area.

    thats why i think these short auto suckers might do really well, stuffed to the limit.

    I will have ample seeds in 10 weeks, al fems. then it will be rock and roll.

    here is how I am cooling the space.



    4 days from last pics, they are continuing to grow nicely. a few more days till STS. When the first one shows fem, I will spray a different one that same day.







    man, the second branchs are touching the seedling leaves



    tight internodes!!

    lol, pit. . . how cute they are.

    i wish I had 80!

    i didnt dig them either, until I leaned how to make fem seeds. now i think they're the shit. and the dwarf aspect just puts them over the top in this system. . . but i don't want to get ahead of myself until I have real success with them.

    Hey WOF,
    Nice healthy looking youngins there, very tight internodes. I think you will be happy with those in the wheel.

    I was flipping through one of the binders and he had a section on AF strains. I see your experimenting with AF strains so I thought I would share. Of all the AF strains he turned (about 12) he really liked the Feminised Automatic White Moscow (White Russian x Lowryder 2) germination to harvest in 10 weeks. He says it's definitely worth the time vs the yield. He records plant heights at 15" at harvest. Killer smoke with a THC of about 17%.

    I guess it depends what cycle your looking to run on the wheel, he has strains listed from 6 - 12 weeks. Of course the 10 - 12 week harvests are more for the connoisseur smoker where as the 6 week harvests, are more for the gorilla grower...

    BTW, thanks for the food for thought, I may do a journal on my next turn. I'm already in week 5 of this turn, so I may consider it the next time round.

    Cheers,
    OD

    This comment makes me think about TightBuds comment/question in Maxx's thread about what wattage light to choose.

    They'd be some toasty tips with a 1000 watter in there I'd imagine; or at least a constant battle to prevent it

    Lol, I can rest my hand on the glass encasing my 1000w bulb. I don't think burns will be a prob.

    I have heard of "light poisoning" with some plants getting too close to 1000 watters. Not a burning, but a bleaching of the chlorophyll with the tops losing all color. I don't recall if I was told how it smoked after that. No, no dood this is the smack, it's called Ohio Albino, it's solid crystal man.

    Cheers,
    Maxx

    I think I've had that type of light burn before, the leaves turn almost white, but are still alive. Lucky me, I have the Quantum ballast and can turn down the wattage if I start encountering problems. Ohio Albino? I think I knew that kid back in elementary school... j/k.

    OntarioDude, I hope you one day have time to scan the information contained within your binders into .pdf files or something. I bet much of it would make excellent sticky thread material in a potential Wheel forum; it's looking like there is increasing interest and almost certainly plenty of lurkers. I've been wondering how many views these threads have been getting from members and guests.

    Oh, and I am personally curious as to which 10-12 week strains the author of your info felt was worth growing in a setup with limited space/plant. I would think that there must have been something special about them to deal with that long of a flowering period in a wheel.

    actually, the LS just got there today.

    but I am not gonna make the same mistake again, as I am too busy right now to start them right, I will wait a few days till i have the extra time.

    Seeds I spec'd are over 800/gram. At that rate, your wheel is HUNGRY.
