BoilerGuy's Go✔️ILGM-Banana Kush

5/17/20 — Cut my 3 “slots into the bottom of the solo cups and filled with Happy Frog soil, 1 tablespoon of Myco, 3 tablespoons of spent coffee grounds, and maybe 4 tablespoons of extra perlite. All mixed and shaken up in an empty Folgers coffee. Then filled my cups with the soil mix. I then pH’d my water down to 6.6 and used it to presoak the soil until I saw run off from the drainage/breather slots. I made about a 1/4” divot/hole in the center of the soil for the 24 hour pre-soaked (It sunk) ILGM Banana Kush (fem) seeds(2) to lay in sprinkled loosely just the smallest amount of soil on top of the seeds and then sprayed a small amount of my pH’d water to make everything “stick.” Until the soil drys I will LEAVE IT ALONE! If I see a sprout I will then some using a cut up plastic water bottle
The other seedlings you see here are bag seed/Tahoe? But kinda experimental… it helps get me into the swing of things.:heavy_check_mark::grin:
I am super excited, but I’m sure I will need some help and advice along the way at some point. I will keep this journal up to date as well as I can! Check it out

Well I can’t actually hand you weed so the next best thing is teach YOU how to do it haha. Your only requirement is to pass it on and maybe share some bud porn.

We’re watching, let’s grow some serious buds. The banana kush is on my short list of strains to grow soon.

My two-cents worth is still only two-cents. However, collectively it adds up. If I can add anything to the conversation I will. Have good grow! :sunglasses:

Any light cycle preferences? I’m running lights on 5am till 9pm right now. 16hr on/8off

I run 6/2 light schedule. Helps with temps and plants really like it. They never get that worn out, droopy look after a long day of lights on.

I have noticed the seedlings have increased the uptake of the water I feed them… which is great! So I’ve watered them through last night I also very slightly misted the top soils of the precious ILGM Banana Kush seeds. Currently running just the Viparspectra 450 only on veg right now, but the light sits only 10 maybe 11inches from the tops of those seedlings. How do you feel about that? Besides that, everything seems to be doing well.

5-20-20 This morning when I checked over things, I’ve noticed “That smell” immediately when I opened the tent door. Wow. They’re only seedlings!! As much as I love the smell of some skunky weed I don’t want me entire home to smell like it. If I can keep from running the carbon filter exhaust I will. Was hoping to have to start that thing later but wow! ALSO, I’ve noticed the the 2 ILGM Banana Kush seeds are trying to pop and push through that top soil. I’d like to think by the end of the day we’ll see some sprouts :grin:. Hope everyone has a wonderful Wednesday! :v:

I got a bigger version of that light. Mine is the 1200w(385 actual) i veg 6 plants with it. Ive flowered 4 with it but got the new light since.

Keep updates coming. Hows grow goin??

Yeah bruh the smell is gonna get intense without some odor abatement. My current grow started stinkin as soon as the 3rd node showed too. Some are worse than others.

ILGM delivers! 100% germination with the ILGM Banana Kush! A couple of twins right now! Woo! Alright so just as I suspected this morning when I took a peek I could see that the seeds were pushing and trying to pop through. Well that’s just what happened this afternoon check. Those bananas are the only 2 seedlings planted in Happy frog. So it’ll be exciting to see the comparison between the others. I gotta assume that the bananas are going to outgrow pace of the others. Time will tell!:grin: Those other seedlings are bag seed… and I’m not 100% sure what they are… Tahoe maybe?? But so far so good! Just got questions about light heights and when I need to introduce some more watts!

5-22-20 The ILGM Banana Kush seedlings have received just a touch of water to get the top soil back moist and I’ve added the plastic water bottle domes to them and also put them a little further away from the intense light. Maybe I’ll start to see them stretch? Or it it that it’s a short/compact plant to begin with (I read). At any rate I’m still seeing some decent progress. Can’t wait to see!
