I think it is time to go inside, start a fire and drop some beans.
I dropped four ILGM Afghan seeds 11/20 and all sprouted and transferred to paper towels on the 22nd.
Put the sprouts in 3" pots and waited for them to grow.
Right now all are in the tent and I started them under the Kind XL600. To see if I can get a little more internode spacing I turned off the Kind and am using the 4 photo boost strips from PLC. I am thinking it has a little more red than the Kind which I hope will result in more length between nodes. Give it a week and see what happens.
A long way to go
I grew Afghani for 3 years '81-'84. First generation American. A buddy got one of the last shipments to come out before the Soviets invaded. Great stuff, though it was a notch below the Thai I grew previous to that.
I wonder how much if any it has changed over the forty years. Now that time frame is scary enough. I am late to this game. I didn’t start growing until I retired 3 years ago.
Looked at your profile. Now I get the handle.
It has been a few years since I made one. I have a standing order for a rod for each of the grandsons. I am just waiting for them to get old enough to be responsible enough to not break it.
I’ll tell you what, growing is a lot different, now. There were no auto flowers or fems back then. No seed banks then either, you had to do with what you could get your hands on. What a blessing it is nowadays.
I remember paying $20 each for clones, I’d cram 20 in a 6x7 room under 1000w HPS bulb. You could get Indica or Sativa clones, that was about it. That was when I learned to take my own clones, even with a 30% to 40% survival rate, saved me a lot back in 1990-91 or so.
I will only be growing two. One will go back in the tent and the 2nd will go in an autopot in the closet.
As of today the back left will go in the tent. It is a toss up between the two in front for the closet.
Two of them have some chlorosis which I am taking as low chlorophyll resulting from a magnesium deficiency. I added some extra Epsom salt to todays feed. I’ll add an extra 10% the next couple of times.
