So glad to see this diary up and running already, thank you so much for starting it so fast!
I am sure we will have some fun with these new varieties and that we will all enjoy the ride. You have 2 lovely varieties and pretty sure you will know how to make them shine and stand out
Cheers to a great beginning and to a great grow,
Thanks once more,

These will be kept inside in a warm place and covered until they pop. Then they'll be planted in 5 inch (125mm) pots in very loose soil and moved into a grow box under 13/11 light until early April. Then they'll be moved outside because natural daylight will be a bit longer than 13/11 and weather should be consistently good. They'll only return to the grow box if weather and sunlight are poor. Once they're too large to fit in the box, they'll be left outside permanently unless there's a freak bad weather event. I'll be feeding with Nectar of the Gods nutrients. Once they outgrow the 5 inch pots, they'll be transplanted to 7 gallon (26.5 liter) fabric pots.
The light brown color on the paper towels is very dilute 'beginning' nutrients.
I live in a subtropical climate at longitude 29.
