This is my second run with Grow Dots, a programmed-released synthetic cannabis fertilizer from Real Growers, the makers of Recharge. I really liked the Dots; my last grow with them was easy, and my plants (two White Widow autos in soil) were healthy throughout. I journaled them on this forum, and I want to document another plant with Grow Dots here.
Last time, I used the heavy application of Grow Dots. While my plants were healthy and I didn’t have any burning, the leaves were very dark green, lol. That seemed to be fine, although I’ve since learned that the maker of Grow Dots suggests a lower rate for autos. Also, each cultivar can be different, and the breeder for my sativa strain recommends going lighter on nutes.
So, on this current plant, I used the medium application rate of Grow Dots, which is 2 teaspoons per gallon of potting soil. However, long story short, LOL, I might add a small amount later, so I’ll document that if I do.
Like last time, I’m using Roots Organics Original soil, Recharge about once a week, and some calmag.
As far as training, my plan is to top once and spread out her branches.
So, this little girl is a Mexican Airlines from Fast Buds, a Mexican x Columbian auto. I named her Marina, after Cheech Marin, and she is seven days old from sprouting. Soon, after she gains more height, I’ll fill up her pot with additional soil and cover more of her stem.
I’ll tag a few folks, especially those who might be interested in Grow Dots or the Mexican Airlines strain. I’ll tag those I remember at the moment who followed my last grow, but of course there’s absolutely no obligation to follow. Also of course, everyone is free to invite anyone here.
Glam shot of Marina and a gnatty bug trap, below. She is my first Sativa plant. The brown spot on her cotyledon leaf is a stuck remnant of her seed membrane, despite having a helmet head for only about half a day. And I just realized that the pic I’m using doesn’t show her stuck seed membrane. Well then, trust me, it’s there.
