    I want to be formal, but I'm here to party

    Picking up with the strains I left off on the other thread. I moved on Oct 12th to my new place and by Oct 18th I had seeds in a shot glass. I couldn't wait any longer. Not growing was taking its toll on me.

    I'm currently limited with space at my new place, so I decided I would just set up the 3x3 in an extra room and run with it. Right now I am vegging with the Starlite Helios 320w and will be running blumats with a pressure system this round. I have heard good things about the blumats regarding efficiency and low maintenance once dialed in.

    Strains are Zamaldelica and GTH fem. ZD top and GTH is on the bottom.

    10/18 - Seeds went into shot glass
    10/19 - Paper towel

    10/23 - all are above ground



    10/26 - I didn't bring any of my fans with me when I moved, so I had to come up with something creative.



    10/31 - moving along




    11/5 - topped

    Today (11/7) I up potted them into their final homes and I am just waiting for my pressure system to come in for the blumats.

    The Zamaldelica is a ridiculously vigorous strain. Growing side by side with the GTH, it's is very evident that it is more stout and has way crazier roots.

    In their new homes for the rest of the run. Can't wait to see what turns up.



    Any questions, comments, etc are all welcome. It feels so good to be back!

      Glad to see you back. So far I have shown great restraint in not purchasing any Zamaldelica seeds. I bet when you finish this grow my restraint will have evaporated.

          Got the pressure system set up for the blumats. Gave them a trim as well. I followed the blumat directions to the T and haven't run into any issue so far. I'm waiting for my first runaway or dry pot but so far just heavy pots every time I check. So far very happy with the blumats.

                  Welcome, thirdtime and vanilla

                  thenewstyle - Hopefully I can be as successful as you with the blumats!

                  It seems like the ladies are finally getting used to their new pots and feeding style. They pretty much exploded overnight. I felt like I might have been doing something wrong because of their slow growth (to me). I feel a little better now.

                    Hey saitama , you aren't kidding with those zalmadelica roots, they look great !! , I have a couple of 1 gal coco pots and they are getting dry too fast , can make you please explain the "pressure " part of your blumat setup ? Is it just using a pump and a reservoir? Thanks for sharing , FSG.

                        FSG - If you aren't able to elevate your reservoir 4' in the air or have more than 50 plants, you can use a pressure system to keep the lines pressurized. It consists of a pump, accumulator (keeps pressure with an air filled bladder) and their pressure reducer. Here is a link to it on their site - https://www.sustainablevillage.com/b...ic-pump-system

                            I'm interested in seeing what you coming up with.

                              Trimmed the zamaldelica down because there was just too much leaf to leaf contact for comfort. I then proceeded with some bondage. I'll slow down the updates eventually, I promise.
