This is my first grow journal and i’m hoping a great one. Here goes… So I ordered a mix pack along with trainwreck to which I was offered 50% off a bergman’s gold leaf feminized strain (and jumped at the offer known for its amazing yields). Payed with bitcoin before memorial day weekend to ILGM website. Took only 6 days to receive beans from purchase date. Soaked 1 Gold Leaf bean in room temp distilled water mixed with 1/8 tsp. Root stimulator for 12 hours, and then immediately planted my 1 gold leaf bean in small starter cup with Fox Farm Ocean Forest potting soil and 10% organic worm castings. Watered with 6.8 phed distilled water until 20% run- off at bottom of cup. Covered in plastic wrap and left in a dark sealed area. “Goldie” emerged only after a short 3 days! This is the fastest time I’ve ever experienced germination and sprouting of a seedling. So far so good…I immediately rubbed it in my boyfriend’s face that my girl sprouted faster than his…hehehe… we’re not competitive or anything, (but Goldie is a bad b**** that could beat his lady up anyday lol.) She will be my swan song Im hoping. Placed my champ under a fluorescent T5 5 foot floor light in open living room space for now. Temperature is a consistent 73 degrees and 52% relative humidity. Since today is her first day, not much else to report. Much more to come later kiddos. Until then, boys and girls and all you happy peoples, I’d like to formally introduce you to my golden girl. Keep fighting for the good cause folks. Ttyl
Welcome to ILGM, and congratulations on the new baby! Be careful not to over water her.
Hey!!! Welcome to the forum love seeing new plants
I’ll be following your progress and good luck!!!
My bf planted a strawberry cough and blueberry feminized…I did trainwreck and gold leaf. His strawberry just popped. Still waiting on the other 2. Have them under 24 hour light cycle for now… any and all suggestions are appreciated… need to show him Im the better gardener. Lol
Welcome to the forum! Those ladies a little small to water to runoff right now. Let them dry out a little before watering again, then just do a small ring around them as needed for a bit. Once they have established root systems and get a little bigger would be great time to water til runoff.
@dbrn32 thank you for the advice… need all the help I can get
@Hoaglud11 are you still in the lead lol
Sure am @Gremmall:rofl: his strawberry cough is keeping up with my Goldie, but trainwreck decided to pop up today FINALLY! (his blueberry still hasn’t shown) So I’d say Im off to a good start. Keeping temps at 73 and humidity at a steady 55/60. They were looking a little dry today so hit em with RO water at 6.8 ph with some EM1 formula (1/2 tsp. Per quart of water and 1/4 tsp. Seaweed and molasses). All plants will remain on a 24 hour light cycle for another week… hoping blueberry pops before then and we switch to an 18hr cycle… Loving the grow
I need to convince my wife to have this battle of grower skills she dont smoke so it would all go to me hmmmmm
HAHAHA genius my friend… You can tell her that her skills may be superior… women love that crap and you’d have a happy wife AND extra harvest… Win win hon
Ya this forum is pretty awsome lots of helpful smart ppl have not met 1 that is not nice as can be
It’s the herbs… brings out the best in people… or maybe it’s just the best type of people smoke herbs lol… who knows
So the roots were coming out the bottom of their solo cups thus decided it was time to transplant. Did 5 gallon smart pots with fox farm Ocean forest soil…10 percent premium organic perlite, 10 percent worm castings, and organic activated compost… super busy schedule so looking for nutes and fertilizers to last for a while on their own… dampened soil 2 days in advance. Placed cup in center and poured mix around it as a place holder to measure the transplant coming in. Sprinkled auxin growth rooting hormone in hole and around root ball. Slipped plant into their new home and gently watered with EM1 RO phed water at 6.6 just around the plants base. They seemed to love it and no shock experienced. Keeping them on 24 hour cycle for another few days then will switch to 18 on the 2 four foot T5 lighting system for now… this seems adequate for the time being. Will upgrade later after more growth. Goldie and strawberry on day 11 and trainwreck on day 5… temps at a steady 73 to 75 and humidity between 50 and 60 with low oscillating air flow… I’m loving it
Looks really good
Thank you hoping they stay that way
