5H Club • Winter 2018 - First batch of seeds
Like childhood pictures, you're obigated to take them, but they're boring.
Seedlings got documentation mug shots but not sharing them here.
Dropped 4 beans of S1
S1 – this was the shorter mother – also designated as blush pheno
At day 6 you can see a purplish blush on the underside of the first two true leaves
One plant showed this trait, the other didn't... So know it is genetically passed along...
WTF does it mean? Who knows! But it's what to look for on this strain.
Only a 50% germination rate – something to be watched but not concerned too much.
T3 – this was one of the taller (if not tallest) in the breed room.
Had 100% germination on these 24 hours after soak – strong and ready
(actual germination, nubbin, took 24 hour from first to last showing)
Looking at leaf formations there might be two different types in T3 also, one with narrower leaves possibly.
Within the next week they all go in to forced sex schedule.
Only want a pair – out of 6
Extras (up to 3) can go into 1 gallon and still fit the box or become mini mothers until next round.
Am trying recyclish soil sort of thing. Previous 2-3 inches of bottom of container with drainage rocks left as undisturbed as possible. Added a layer of fresh soil topdressed with kelp, neem,
humus, biochar and other goodies mixed by hand. Repeated with a CalMag dry suppliment added.
Put a tub in the center to accept the transplant. Until then planted the cilantro cover crop around the center void and it will have a couple weeks head start.
Next update when something interesting happens...
Buzz On... Buzz Out..
