All I can say is…
“Everybody Plant Now!”
Marina’s buds are coming along. Overnight, I had the lid on the bud container a bit too loose, so this morning the hygrometers read lower-than-ideal RHs. I then covered the container tightly, and a short bit ago the hygrometers read 67 and 69, thankfully, and I left the lid off for a few minutes before covering again.
Yesterday, for my upcoming plants, I filled a 3-gallon pot (my first 3-gallon! LOL) with soil and added Grow Dots. I already had a 2-gallon pot prepped for my other upcoming plant, also using Grow Dots. Here’s a pic of the pot size comparisons, they are the same brand. Obviously, the 3-gallon pot is taller than wide, and just a tiny amount wider than the 2-gallon pot.
The 3-gallon will be a Grandaddy Purple auto, and the 2-gallon will be a CBD auto. They don’t have names yet.
I like that this brand (iPower) of grow bags has the 3-gallon in the taller pot, but I find that this brand’s extra-extra handle reinforcements to be in the way (pictured), they are large pieces of material, so I trim it a small amount.
Before being trimmed: (There’s no after pic, sorry. ) (The reinforcements on the 2-gallons are even larger.)
Yes, my heart beats and circulates blood. I think my phone’s flash was on overdrive.
Today, I tidied and cleaned the grow area and removed the seeds from the fridge.
I’m thinking that I’ll likely keep the grows in this thread (instead of making a new journal), which seems to be the norm, i.e. that growers’ journals include their multiple grows. So, I’ll then have this thread renamed.
Sounds exactly like what Dracula would say to convince me he’s human.
I’m with you, that’s some vampire looking sh!t.
“The lady doth protest too much, methinks”
You have to hand it to her… Great gift!
Hey! I thought FRIDAY was dad joke day…
Don’t go and point the finger at anyone…
No bones about it!
Sweet! Looks like she bought them at the Scythe Store, aka Walmart. I look forward to seeing them in your grow tent.
You nailed it!
It shouldn’t surprise you guys that I’m new to gardening, veggie included. Nearly 1.5 years ago, I was gifted a chive plant. While they are pretty hardy, I’m amazed that it’s still alive - it’s lived through temperatures from 10F-100F, snow, extreme dryness, extreme rain, no added nutes or soil, AND it’s been in a small metal pot with no drainage (the way it was given to me). It flowered last summer, but only sputtered a couple tiny flowers early this summer. I don’t hold that against her, lol, my bad for neglecting her.
So last night, I re-purposed Marina’s pot and remaining soil. My husband helped me transplant it, and today I gave it a thorough watering, a trim, and a turn towards the sun. I understand that cannabis soil and the remaining Grow Dots likely aren’t optimal for chives, but I’m curious to see how it does. Next spring, I’ll re-evaluate and also probably start my own.
(You guys probably know that the dark color on the grow bag is staining from Recharge.)
Here is the metal, peeling, non-draining pot this chive has been in:
So! I was at Walmart today, and I bought a 5 ft skeleton - $35, not bad. He was tied up in a neat package, arms and legs bent up so that he was pretty much a rectangle of bones with a skull on it. I stuck him in the cart.
Once I got to the register, I had a bunch of other stuff. I left boney boy in the cart with my case of soda, and wheeled it around the side so the cashier could scan.
She screamed her head off. I could not stop laughing - poor woman. I put boney in the front seat and seat belted him in place.
Then I leave, and the exit from the shopping center was blocked by a really bad accident. Si I decide to go through the McD’s drive through - and forgot about boney boy.
Well, naturally - the cashier screamed!
I think he’s staying where he is until I’m ready to decorate. Driving around with him is a lot of fun!
That’s hilarious, Fiz! Congrats on the “new family member”! Yeah, they are fun! I drove Ossi home in the front seat, belted, but it was uneventful.
Here are my smaller ones, as I was waiting in line to “adopt” them a couple years ago. They were really happy to get a home and family!
Some of us are a little slow on the uptake sometimes. I just now learned this, and I’m going to go smack myself around a bit.
Because me, I’m all like, what is THIS odd fungus growing here?
It’s time for Marina’s buds to
Sweating before Groving:
Just in case anyone missed it, the paper bags on the table, one sleeved over the other, is part of the sweating process that Grove Bags recommends before curing. I neglected to specify that in my prior post.
My CBD seed showed a tail later this afternoon, so into the soil she went! The GDP still just looks like a plain ol’ seed, lol. I started their soak at 12:30pm yesterday. I’ll check the GDP later this evening.
While these seeds aren’t ILGM genetics, I like that ILGM’s germination instructions are clear and straightforward, without the paper towel method that I’ve been too chicken to try:
