I started germination in water with all 3 varieties, one of each, a 24-hour soak, and then the paper towel method. Only Bruce Banner jumped to the show. I moved the GSC & GG seeds to dirt.
Both GSC & GG popped up but didn’t look great. I placed both in CoCo Pellets and continued to have some hope.

I started the second set of all 3 varieties in a water peroxide solution. That’s when the fun began.
I had one seed show what I thought was fungus. Turned out to be a double and the separated and I planted it in dirt and got a seedling.
Anther of the 3 seeds actually split into 3 and they are in dirt as I write this.

Sorry for the delay, 3 hour wait time for too many posts:)
and had to reformat pic to fit here, I had all Hi-Res photos.

I keep getting an error that files are larger than 80 megapixels
files I’m trying to upload are less than 10meg.

any advice

I just have problems with your burple might hold you back

The truth is, I’m lazy and busy. So the easier I can make the grow the better.

I went from 4x8 to 4x4, I’m lazy and very busy, so the easier I can make it the better.

These are autoflowers, but next grow will be Fems for better control.
It look like I can only do 2 plants at a time in this size tent.
I picked up a 4x2x48 to make clones, this way I can keep the good ones going.

I have the Burps for flowering, they were there at the stat with the spider.
I have replaced them with a 4000 spider today.
I’ll see If I can get a pic of the new setup later.

O then you are set , is that an auto pot ? I’m confused on the hydro side , how does this work ?

Hydrofarm EBB system, I only have 6 pots on, but can do 12.
I’m going to take it down to 3 pots as I think that’s all a 4x4 can effectively work with.

Here is the new light setup I did to day.

Lights are off at the moment, those are my work lights that are on, LED Strips all around.
