work got away from me, but i’ve been watching september (aka turtle the germinating seed) very closely. so eager to catch her milestones catching up on some journal entries.
- water ph: 6.1
- water temp (f): 74.7
nudged her a bit since she was still floating atop the water, and she went under. ph of her water when i initially checked her was >9.0(!) so i changed it out and added a tiny bit of mycorrhizae to the new water.
- water ph: 7.9
- water temp (f): 72.9
turtle (that’s her nickname right now ) has a little ‘tail’/taproot showing now! it’s approx. 0.1-0.2 mm long. guessing about one more day sprouting and she’ll be ready to plant! will be changing the water tomorrow, for sure.
edit: forgot a pic (blurrycam will have to do for now haha)

turtle’s tail is beautiful and thick, and i can really tell it’s now poking out of the seed shell. it’s about the same length. changed out her water and prepped it just as before. i’ll give her maybe one more day and then drop her into a root riot cube to start her off.
