Woo’s super lemony golden SOG

First a little background, then the details. It’s currently mid January. Vacation is scheduled to begin June 26. That’s a hard date that cannot be shifted. This grow and the following cure must be done by that date. I have a grow going down now that will finish somewhere around the end of February / beginning of March. Probably. I only have one tent and no room or desire for more. That’s the challenge. Among my assets are a small bit of room in the closet, a wheelbarrow, and a holocaust cloak.

Here’s the plan…

I grow one each of a clone mother of Super Lemon Haze and Gold Leaf in the closet under an HLG Bspec 135. Once they’ve gotten bushy I cut and clone using a Clone King in the same space, while wearing the Holocaust Cloak. After a few weeks, and after the current grow is done, they go into 2 gallon pots and into the tent as a SOG. Near as I can figure, I have room for 15 plants. 2 weeks of veg and flip to flower. After 9 weeks I do snickety snick and use the wheelbarrow to move the harvest to the barn. I have it all planned out…. (Insert comment re: gang aft agley).

Today is D-Day (drop day). 2 Super Lemon Haze and 2 Gold Leaf seeds were each put into Dixie cups of 3 parts RO and 1 part H2O2.

Moving forward, the medium will be Canna Coco (no perlite) and the nutrients provided by the fine folks at JR Peters at the current recommended mix ratio. Tribus and Recharge added weekly.

Post clone cut, I plan on transplanting the mothers to soil and hopefully get them thru vacay alive with no watering. If not, dems da breaks and so it goes.

After about 15 hours the seeds were transferred from the dixie cups to paper towels. Tragedy struck during this process and I lost one of the Gold Leaf seeds - damned if I know where it bounced off to. Freedom! Folded the survivors inside the towels and placed into a zip lock sangwhich bag, and the dixies emptied into the bag. Put the bag into an opaque mailer and put the whole shebang inside the tent, where temps are high 70’s.

Last night I filled the empty pots with coco/perlite and all got watered to run-off with Jack’s and Tribus.

This morning, after about 24 hours in the paper towels they went in the dirt. Everyone had tails showing and were painstakingly placed tail down in 6" pots. Yee gods, but I need a set of tweezers for the next round. I had to slide them onto the point of my pocket knife and nudge them with a piece of wire. Each pot has been covered with a 2 gallon ziplock to hold humidity.

Note to self - when you shop for tweezers get a tray for run-off, dummy. Had to steal a baking sheet from the kitchen that isn’t quite big enough. Everyone is under the Bspec 135 in the closet on 24 hour lighting to keep the heat up, with temp monitored. PPFD is currently 300-ish at pot-top. HVAC register right in the middle of the grow area is closed and will get a saran wrap hat shortly.

You set yourself quite a tight time schedule!
It’s going to be really pushing to get that done in 1 tent by the end of June!
I flipped my clones to flower on November 11 2021 and I haven’t cut the first bud yet!
The first couple of weeks after the flip is a transition period and is kinda like limbo - not really veg, not really flowering. Whenever I see a seller saying 8 weeks to flower my mind automatically sees - 10 weeks to flower. Which with some strains is a conservative estimate!
Have you grown these strains out before and have a pretty concrete idea of the flowering time required?
That would help to know for sure!
Cure no problem as long as you’ve got you humidity in the correct range. They can go a week or so without a burp in range.
I hope it all works out for you!!

Best of Luck!!

I haven’t grown either before. Both are listed at 9 weeks by ILGM. I’m going to be using far red light from HLG during flower to utilize the 13/11 light schedule (also never tried) and hopefully actually achieve the 9 weeks. My biggest risk on timing is if both the current grow and the SOG go long. Then I’m semi-screwed. Semi because our vacation spot is only about 2 hours from home.

The 2 SLH popped right on schedule. Little green heads are above dirt this morning (01/17/22). No action yet with the Gold Leaf. I’m not panicking yet, as it’s only an hour behind schedule, but I’d bet heavy on the over for how many times I’ll check it today.

Call off the paramedical arborists. Arboristic paramedics? The GL just showed up. I need to put a reminder in my calendar for 12 weeks from now that the Gold Leaf is 4-5 hours behind the Lemon Haze, so I harvest in the right order.

I’m still a bit amazed at the consistency I see in the time between putting in the dirt and showing above ground. Every seed I’ve dropped has showed above ground on the 3rd morning after planting.
