Granddaddy Purple

Finally had some money to invest in some better genetics.

Bought 10 Granddaddy Purple seeds. Put 5 in paper towel 2/13.

Pictures are today 2/15 5/5 sprouted.

Well 4 more days and roots were out the bottom of the Rockwool, so into net cups.

Leaves getting fat.Used to seeing thin Sativa leaves. The nice Indica leaves are a welcome sight.

Well 7 days from sprouting. All have well formed second set of true leaves and 3rd set forming.

From the height of a couple of them, I'm guessing 3 males 2 females. Will watch and see.

look into the recycled glass Gro-stones instead of those clay balls. I think they do a better job over multiple harvests.
Peace

What size light did you have above the Hatch?

Just asking as It seems the outside's are stretching in earlier than the middle two?

Cheers

Oh sorry Missed reading a bit, so the taller ones you suspect are male?

Do you use anything with the water when First soaking the seed? Rhizotonic maybe?

To answer peoples Questions.

Running a 600W MH light

Yes I suspect the tall ones are males. Males tend to get taller so they can drop their pollen down on the girls. Only time will tell for sure though. Could just be very robust girls.

No additional anything when cracking seeds. I fold a paper towel in half 2 times then use a little tap water to wet it. Drop the seeds in the middle between the layers in a closed tupperware container till they crack. Once cracked I soak rockwool cubes in 1/4-1/2 strength nutes at Ph 5.5 for about an hour then put the cracked seeds in.

These GDP seeds all 5 cracked within 24 hours.

As for the gro-stones NO Thanks. I'll stick with what works. I don't reuse hydroton anyway. I buy fresh each grow.

That's it.

Late Update. Today the plants are 35 days from sprout. Pictures were on day 32. They're tied down, topped and I removed a large number of huge fan leaves, in order to get more light to the lowers.

Pretty sure the plant in the back right ia a male. It's tall and lanky, almost like a sativa. The plant directly in front of it Is almost definitely a girl. Very short and bushy. Other 3 will have to wait on the clones to be sure.

Was finally able to get 2 clones from each plant. Put all the clones directly into the flower room for sexing purposes.

Clones are rooted and out of the dome. They went directly into the flower room for sexing purposes. I'll let any females keep growing even though they won't yield much with no veg time. Will still give me a little to try till the moms are big enough.

Well so far out of 5 seeds looks like 4 girls and 1 boy. The tall lanky one, that I thought was for sure male, is female. It's about 3 days ahead of the others.

The GDP are the 7 plants in the front half. The 9 in the back are my old Amnesia X Triangle Trip

These GDP clones went directly into flower as soon as they were cut, before they even rooted, for sexing purposes. They are also 2 weeks ahead of the Amnesia X TT which I allowed to root before putting them in.

Now that I have the sexes down it's time to get serious. My current run of Amnesia X Triangle Trip will finish in 3 weeks so took a bunch of clones today. Took 5 from each of the 4 girls and 5 from my Amnesia X TT as well. Will veg 2 weeks once roots are showing then flip.

GDP was one of my favorites. Your set up looks pro level.
