Hey OG, I’ve had a couple partial grow journals around here; one because I was already flowering when I joined, and one because the grow turned into such a shit show that I was ashamed to show it!
This time you get the good, the bad, and the ugly.
I’m starting seeds in 3 inch breathable cloth bags (as seen in @DougDawson grows), up-potting to 1 gallon air pots, and then transitioning them to 5 gallon smart pots before switching the light cycle.
Germination and veg are happening in a 2x2x4 under a spider farmer sf1000, ac infinity 4 inch fan for exhaust, clip fan for air circulation.
Flowering tent is a 2x4 Gorilla, ac Infiniti 6 inch, carbon filter, and HLG 300 Rspec board.
Soil is Build-a-soil 3.0, and it’s my first time using it. I’ve read about people treating it as a water only super soil, so I’m starting out that way. I do have various KNF/JADAM inputs on hand in case I start seeing deficiencies.
The flow I have planned is: Pop 2 seeds of a given strain, 2 weeks from true leaves 2 more seeds of the same strain go in soil, 2 weeks, start 2 beans of a new stain, etc. etc. Up pot to one gallon when root formation dictates. Veg for 30 days, up pot to 5 gallon, switch tents and initiate flowering.
The pics are Longbottom Leaf x Starfighter f2s from Bad Dawg. They were selected toward LBL for this generation, and gifted to me by @oleskool830 Even though he’s gone, I know he’s blessing this grow onward, through the fog.
First 2 seedlings showed crazy twisty misshapen leaves, but seems to be growing out of it. The most recent sprout came up normal.
Alright friends I’ve changed the title of the thread, as I’ve made a decision…to not make decisions.
That’s right, going forward I will not be selecting any more strains to grow out.
I know. Shocking.
“I thought you were doing a (semi) perpetual grow, Heady!”
Oh I am.
Now that the hook is in…The way we’ll proceed going forward is that I will post a list of seeds that I possess from 1 of 4 categories: Breeder Packs, Co-op Reproductions, Landrace/Heirlooms, and OG Member Crosses.
Each month I’ll post a poll, and the strain with the most votes goes in the dirt!
When I make the poll I may include additional information (i.e. I don’t have enough daytime smoke in my headstash, I want to try making hash, I’m hunting “x” terpene/effect, etc.), or I might just post the list.
This Choose Your Own Adventure grow will begin following germination of the Arcata Trainwreck Fems provided by @BeagleZ , which will be hitting the dirt in about 2 weeks (there are 3, so I’m planting them simultaneously).
Beyond that, I am totally down to make small quantities of hybrid and fgen beans, so as we select strains, we can also keep an eye on potential crosses that make sense based on my collection.
Looking forward to your participation!
(Oh, and as a bonus for folks who stop by, I’ll host giveaways of crosses and fgens that result from my antics. Anybody who participates in a poll will be eligible, along with those of you who were here from the start…thank you for your support so far!)
