Last year I met up with a fellow member, @Bobbyb. We hung out smoked, and talked all about our lives and our grows. He's a great guy, and we still talk at least once a week, and will actually be fishing for trout together this weekend hopefully!
Anyway, when I met up with him I decided to take him a clone of my plant at the time, and also some seeds I had. In the end, he gave me some seeds too, some ILGM White Widow seeds to be exact, two of them!
One was lost to the carpet, sadly. But the other I germinated and planted into a solo cup. Today, I transplanted her into her own DWC setup! Here are pictures of the whole process, and I'll also elaborate on what I gave her for her first feeding.
In first home, a solo cup with perlite and soil (not actually soil, its the soilless soil lol)
The transplanting setup
Out of the solo cup, her roots
Halfway through removing the "soil"
After I have removed all the "soil" I can. Very nice roots already! ILGM truly does have amazing genetics!
How I place the plant into the net pot. Making sure the roots are going through the slots and hanging freely.
I hold the plant still while I back fill with the hydroton
Filled completely with hydroton
For her first feeding I gave her the normal "first feeding" that I like to do for my fresh transplants.
- 1 1/2 tsp Flora Trio (FloraGrow, FloraBloom, FloraMicro)
- 1 tsp HydroGuard
- 2 tsp Cal-Mag
- 1/2 tsp FloraLiciousPlus
- 1/2 tsp Mammoth P
- 1 tsp Diamond Nectar
- 1/4 RapidStart
PPM was at 650, and pH was at 5.8 with water temp of 67F
This is my normal first feeding for the transplants. It seems to always work out really well, and from there I can tailor the feeding dosages accordingly. They start the same, but almost never end the same!
The Afghani Gold is in the background
And again, just to reiterate. This plant is younger than my Afghani Gold, and is still bigger with better roots and foliage. It's just proof on how good of genetics ILGM has! Thanks again @bobbyb for hooking me up with the seed, and thanks @RobertBergman and everyone else at ILGM for the hard work!
I hope you guys enjoy the thread and good vibes!
