Afterthought Autos was so kind and generous to send me 2 different Auto regular seed strains for a TEST grow for future possible strains: Numbskull(++CBD), Tranquil Hemp. Since they are auto regulars I'm going to run 3 staggered over 30 days, hoping for a 2 Fem-1 MALE 3-some. I like ability to capture pollen for expanding strain and trying crosses.
This is Tranquil Hemp CBD
Genetic lineage: Boax x Finola Hemp CBD
Indoor: 13-16 weeks (start to finish)
10/30/20 Germinated and will be grown in:
Organic soil, reused and baked Stonington blend base
Stonington blend fertilizer
Fish bone meal
5 gallon bucket
Start under CFL and over to LED HLG 550 to run 18/6 on/off schedule
DAY ONE: 10/31/20 popped up from soil.
Pics are 3 weeks post germ
Due to constraints I had to start in small Burpee cups 2 days short of 3 weeks post germ & they were transferred from the starter cups into their 5 gallon final destination using the soil mix initially noted. Now under an HLG 550 with PAR dialed down to 500.
Running temps in mid 70's during 18/6, dropping to low 60's when lights off.
Tranquil #1 has grown most faster and fuller than #2, and the others being tested. Probably makes sense for being Hemp(Boax x Finola).
Tranquil's leaves look sharp, jagged like vs rounded leaf tips of others.
Since these are regular seeds, I also started #3 this week, hoping I get a 66% fem rate so I can run 2 thru harvest.
Transfer from starter cups was easy due to great root structure. Very impressed with abundance of roots. Easy peasy 3 weeks in.
BTW, I'm 9 for 9 with seed germination rate for afterthought autos. Strong genetics
