Thanks! That's good to know. Feel better about dusting everything with the Flo2 male.
AC/DC1 x Flo2
Special Sauce2 x Flo2
CBD Mango Haze2 x Flo2
Harvested some of the SS2xFlo2 seeds and they are very small.
The MH look like they will be a bit larger, but they're not quite fully baked yet. Will be coming down next Sunday, right at day 77.
Not much to report. BCM1 seedlings are growing. They have a very broad leaf at this stage, but I expect that to change as they mature. They're quite vigorous and happy especially given that they are not quite getting enough light. Hope to take some clones in the next week or two.
I did learn something recently after a series of mistakes. Figured i'd share.
I have been cloning in one of those plastic seed/clone domes with cells for sponges. So far I'm 100% after 42 cuts taken. Technique is feeling good. But I've noticed that once transitioned to Coco, about 5% of plants stall shortly after transplant. Another 5% go for a few weeks before stalling. Typically the stalling is accompanied by a small colony of springtails taking up residence. The sponges get ultra slimy and almost disintegrate. This is causing the roots to rot right where they meet the plant. No bueno.
Initially I thought I might be able to remedy this by removing the sponges from the rooted clones before planting them in Coco. In retrospect this was a stupid idea, but sometimes you gotta learn the hard way. I didn't kill any cuttings, but I sure did make them suffer from the root damage.
Eventually it dawned on me that I could preserve the entire technique I'm using, but replace the sponges with Coco. I can't check on root development as easily as I used to. Have to wait til I see them coming out the bottom, but as long as it works, I'm happy.
In other news, I've been dreaming of the Blue Heaven for since I read about it years ago. The description sounded like the perfect herb for me. Anti Anxiety qualities in cannabis is the holy grail for me. Part of why I love CBD strains. Managed to snatch up some New Berry by way of an SSG Sour Goat acquisition (LBSDxF13? F-yeah!). Only 4 NB seeds to play with, but after the experts set me straight on my seed germination technique, I feel confident I will end up with something from the pack.
That's all for now.
