Poly's little grows

I probably should have done this before now but I’m bad at etiquette. I got here by volunteering to store some seeds and equipment for a friend (gone to Ghana to teach for a couple of years) and when I was going through the seeds I found some from ILGM (somehow I’d never heard of it before).

So here’s what’s growing. Suggestions and etc. welcome.

  • Whiskey Zulu #1 (A) Twenty20 Mendocino
  • SunGro All Natural & Organic potting soil and Earth Dust
  • The outdoor loner (for now)

Droopy from a pop-up storm and starting to get sleepy. Any suggestions for combating bud rot appreciated. This is my first time outdoors. Guess I need to start getting it out of the rain first of all.

In the veg tent we have some overcrowding due to circumstances.

  • Thug Rozé (R) Ethos
  • Coast of Main Stonington Blend and Earth Dust

Weird looking slow grower but female (the good looking one was male). It might end up outside soon.

  • OG Kush (F) DNA Genetics
  • Peat, perlite, vermiculite and Jack’s 20-10-20 General Purpose for peat-lite mixes

The OG even has a ganster lean.

These two Haze and Blueberry were supposed to go to a friend but they pulled the plug on this summers grow so I’m just keeping them vegging.

  • Haze IBL #1 (F) Ethos
  • Coast of Main Stonington Blend and Earth Dust

  • Haze IBL #2 (F) Ethos
  • Coast of Main Stonington Blend and Earth Dust

  • Blueberry (R) Dutch Passion
  • Coast of Main Stonington Blend and Earth Dust

  • 3x Moon Man (R) Diamondnugz
  • SunGro All Natural & Organic potting soil and Earth Dust

Dropped as part of:

Flower tent is starting to get a bit cramped as well but that GSC should be out of there soon.

  • Whiskey Zulu #2 (A) Twenty20 Mendocino
  • SunGro All Natural & Organic potting soil and Earth Dust

Finally the mutant dwarf Girl Scout Cookie.

  • Girl Scout Cookies (A) freebie
  • Fox Farm Ocean Forest and the twelve (err 14) step program

I setup a dedicated germination and propagation station over the weekend. Nothing cannabis related in there yet but probably will be sooner than necessary. A couple of Mizuna already popped up.

Thats:

  • 8 colorful lettuce mix
  • 8 Mizuna
  • 8 Wasabi Arugula
  • 6 Night-blooming Jasmine
  • 6 Starflower
  • 6 Mexican Mint Marigold
  • 6 Sacred Aztec Tobacco

Half in peat, perlite and vermiculite and half in SunGro All Purpose potting soil that the hardware store had on sale for a price I couldn’t pass up. Now to figure out what to do with those two empty starter trays :thinking:

For the tub on the lower shelf I’ve started some Golden Teacher. This is my first time growing the sacred mushroom (I’ve done the spray and grow kits for gourmet mushies). Psychedelics were my drug of choice for the decade from my mid-teens to mid-twenties but I haven’t had any since then…not sure why. I’m excited to get back into it and the mushroom thread here has been a great help. Started on May 21.


The boring details.

  • Veg tent: 2x2x4, HLG Diablo 200W, 4" AC Infinity exhaust, passive intake, USB clip fan, humidifier on Willhi controller
  • Flower tent: 2x2x8, HLG Diablo 200W, HLG UVA Supplement 30W, 4" AC Infinity exhaust, AC Infinity axial fan intake, 2x AC Infinity A6 clip fans
  • Germination station: 4x1.5x1.2, HLG Propagator 30W, 4x starter trays 16x9x10, 2x AC Infinity seedling heat mat
  • GE 350 sq. foot dehumidifier

Amendments include microbes, silica, molasses and worm castings from my worm bin.

I think that about covers it for now.

Thanks y’all. Glad I found this place since neither of my grower friends are growing right now and I think my partner gets tired of hearing about it…at least until harvest time :scissors:

Already on it :sunglasses: Thanks for getting it started.

Tagging along looks like fun. Glad you found this place. How do ya like Twenty20 Mendocino seeds ? Im trying 1 right now called snowcaine i messed up my 1st 3 seeds, but this 4th one finally took, so far lol

These are my first from Twenty20 but so far both of these have been a breeze. Earth Dust may also be multiplying the breezy feelings.

The outdoor WZ was sort of a runt at first but it is doing better since going outside and is now just barely shorter than the indoor one after being about half as tall early on. Other than that they’ve been perfectly behaved. Pretty good for freebies.

Glad you got that one to take. Sounds my tribulations with LA Confidential except I’m still ohfer.

How old were they when you moved them into their earth dust pots ?

It’s the only soil they’ve ever known. I took a solo cup worth of soil from the pot of cooked soil and started them in that.

Rearranged the tents a bit. Moved the WZ into the short tent and ordered a couple of more bags to transplant the Haze’s into then I’ll flip them to 12/12 in the tall tent.

There’s ~15 inches from the canopy to light and 1.5 inches available if I switch to a shorter riser.

The extra plant in the lower right is the male Thug Rozé. It was the first time I used Farmer & Freeman so I’m waiting on it to show sex just to double check the test :test_tube:
