Now a bit over a week in 12/12, the first hairs are starting to appear and the aromas are starting to develop.
Rubbing the stems I get these smell samples (super early, not the best method):
I am loving Violet smell (sandal and a bit floral). Hopefully will not taste a bit like soap vaping, but on nose it is really pleasant and getting interesting. Lemon Haze have no citric notes so far and I smell a bit of dog shit undertones there. Critical is a myriad of aromas that I am really liking so far. Fruit Spirit is sweet, but still too early for her and Royal Medic have that fruity critical thing on her too.
I have some big holes on my canopy so far:
The Fruit Spirit that I've got is super strong, fat stems, but somewhat short plant. Had to cut two beautiful stems that would never get light no matter how much I defoliate. So her side is a bit underdeveloped.
Violet is also a bit on the compact side (expected) but less than Fruit Spirit. Her side also have some roles.
Critical: This girl I had to spread a bit more than usual to cover the less vigorous sisters on her side, leaving a hole at her middle. There are shorter stems growing on the "hole", a bit like a small arena and this hole is exactly bellow the light. I am curious how this will develop.
Lemon Haze is everywhere. As the middle plant had to spread her on all sides and this plant is the most vigorous of all.
Royal Medic is not something that I like. Is on the "tall, super flexible and not supporting herself stems type". Is vigorous, but thin rubber branches everywhere. As I want some CBD rich thing she is not dead already.
So everything going more or less as expected. I got only a bit surprised with the Fruit Spirit that should be a sativa dominant girl and mine is a lot more indica. This happens, no biggie, this is what multi strains on a small tent is all about .
They are drinking well, around 5 liters / day (1 liter each).
EC total in 1.6 (my water is 0.6), Ph 6.0. The EC was 1.8 and they showed a bit of overfed signs, so I lowered it a bit and plan to start slowly raising it again soon, but so far they look happy, pH is stable. The temperature is going down (finally) and today I have like 20C inside.
So here are some pictures, not the best, but I confess that I am not super excited to post pictures of early flower plants. But I plan to continue the weekly updates
