3 of the 5 Chocolate Fire Crackers beans cracked.

On the whole plant there was only 5 with the unusual golden brown color, similar to VM beans.

Perhaps also I’m wrong about the mother of these again. A PCT plant that is so heavy a VM pheno that it doesn’t have any Jesus OG taste?

A picture also of the mother plant when it was growing. The predominant Chocolate Mint taste and heavy body high are the directions I want this line to go either way.

And the PCG clones. Do-Si-Dos and Mochi.

I killed clones last time I bought a couple because I put them right into the aquaponics garden and it shocked them.

Works with lettuce I buy at the market that had roots still. Not with all strains, or most Cannabis perhaps.

Feeding them the same as the sprouts RO water hardened off to EC of .2 with Aquaponics water. Figure they need to grow some new roots maybe to learn how to grow in this new kind of nutes.

Also saw a Thrip on a leaf. Probably from my garden. I get those a lot.

Spraying with Doc Bron/Neam.

And which cut of GSC was used to create the Animal Cookies cut I believe I used?

AC = GSC S1 C Fire OG.

I’ll bet the S1 was Platinum Cookies aka Animal Girl Scout Cookies.

Cause I had a PCT pheno that looked just like the pic of this strain here

https://808genetics.com/clones/Animal-Cut-GSC.php

Except it was basically white colored. I put Grape Ape pollen on it. Wish I had taken a picture. Calling those beans White Ape Crackers.

Furthermore, this would explain why a lot of my PCTs come out looking a lot like this Creme Brûlée Cookies flowers I purchased and have been enjoying. Also a Platinum GSC cross.

Transplanted the 9 VM seedlings into Coco in small cups with drainage holes poked in the bottom. 3 had pretty good roots out the bottom, this one being the best.

The tips look a bit yellow. Perhaps this Aquaponics thing is more similar to how I would grow in Coco with PBP. I switch to water 1/4 strength of what the fish water usually is EC .4-.5 - to .1 I’ll just use .5 as the max to figure out my feeding chart.

At the beginning when I thought the EC was double what it normally is it was because my new TDS meter has a button that switches between ppm and EC. Oops.

What an expensive waste of RO water. I was putting in massive quantities to try to remedy this. That’s just what the systems EC has been for more than a year.

It’s hard for me to understand how an EC of .4-.5 is enough to flower them. Somehow it’s different.

But also, I should be watering them more than once a day before they go into Hempy Buckets. More like how the lettuce grows in the regular grow bed -constant flow of water, Deep Flow Technique with the grow bed full of pebbles.

Thanks. This is actually my 3rd attempt at vegging plants with the fish water.

Last round it shocked half of them just jumping right into full strength. The other half grew crazy fast. I flowered those 5 and 4 turned out to be males.

This leads me to believe, at least with that variety, that males are heavier feeders?

Do the VMs look over or underfed at EC of .1?

I think maybe a bit overfed, but not much. No? Underfed? Not burned looking tips tips, tips that need more greening up?

I’m hitting the books more.

I use a product called Replenish to
Restore the GH to the RO water.

“Replenish is a proprietary blend of salts designed to replenish physiologically relevant minerals that are removed by reverse osmosis filtration
Replenish restores general hardness (GH) using a balanced blend of both soft (sodium potassium) and hard (calcium magnesium) salts
Restoration of mineral content is essential since a complete lack of minerals will result in osmotic stress”

But I still think the plants have a tendency to look CalMag deficient.

I’ve read that a lot of people add Epsom Salt and crushed egg shells.

Maybe the 12/12 ones are using up a lot of the CalMag. So I added these ingredients in the recommended dosage to the Sump tank last night.

Hmmmm. The VMs must be in week 2. I see a chart that says that requires an EC of 1.0 so I water them again with that.

Meanwhile.... I threw a, freshly cracked in water, bean into the main Aquaponics growbed. WTF? It’s now the fastest growing healthiest looking sprout in my garden.

When I’ve tried to put sprouts in, or small plants from soil, last few times these all got stressed big time.

I clearly need to do some experiments. Would be so much easier if I could always do it like this, except in a container that can later be transplanted into the 12/12 tent.

I have also been noticing certain strains seem to do better in my system than others. Though I think there is something else going on here. Starting them that early bypasses these other transplant issues? I should keep this one going for a while for comparison.
