I have no idea what I am doing.
Now that’s out of the way.
I started with 4 seeds.
- Stress killer auto flowering feminised from Royal queen
- Girl scout cookies auto flowering feminised from FastBuds
- Blackberry Kusk auto flowering feminsed from Dutch passion
- Northern lights auto flowering feminised from Royal queen
All planted into coconut coir inside newspaper starter pots on the 27th march 2018
On the night of the 31st March the Stress killer decided to join the world.
Followed by the Girl scout cookies on the 1st April and then Northern lights and Blackberry Kush on the 2nd April.
At the point the weather began snap freezing and I simply couldn’t keep the temperature stable in the bay where I usually do all my nursery activities with seeds. The light was also terrible from constant overcast. So I took my old monitors box which I was planning to throw out, added some strip lights I bought the year before to test on strawberry plants and made myself a nice warm nursery for these little guys along with all this years chilli plants.
These are the lights I’m using at roughly 40cm’s above the seedlings. https://www.bonluxled.com/600mm-flexiable-led-grow-strip-light_p0121.html
Then disaster hit on the 3rd April. The stress killer (which has caused me no end of stress since it was still in its packet) got much to leggy and toppled over.
Thankfully some very nice people on the OG discord got me through my horrified panic. They’re all now supported by chopsticks I found in the draw leftover from some sushi driven madness. As of the 4th there leaves have all darkened a little to a pleasant green colour, the chilli’s are also enjoying the new nursery so far.
However, I’m not hopeful the Stress killer will make it. It’s stem has gone thin half way up where the bend occurred though it has also grown a little taller as well keeping that thinness going.
Currently awaiting my order of 5 gallon fabric bags to transfer them too when ready. I also moved them up an extra 20cm to try and stop them trying to get higher and higher. Any advice is appreciated.
