Hydro Grass Monkey (Update 3/29/18)
Low Stress Training (LST) has been effecive to manage height and able to provide additional light to the secondary growth.
Sex of each plant have not been comfirmed as of yet. Once the plants shows, I will take clones of each female.
2 plants have trifoliate anomalies (one actually has a quidfoliate). Each plant has 2 growth shoots of this anomaly. Each affected growth shoot is throwing at least 3 leafs each node continuing as it grows.
These same 2 plants (GM#1, GM#5) with the anomalies appear to have velvet green leaves, accelerated growth, lengthy thick but pliable stems, and quick root growth. I would have to classify them together as Phenotype#1 (P#1)
3 out of the 6 plants (GM#3, GM#4, GM#6) have more glossy leaves, normal growth rate, remain compact and have very thick and stiff stems, and quick root growth. I would classify these as Phenotype#2 (P#2)
The 1 plant (GM#2) I did not mention is a runt, very slow veg growth, very slow root growth. I am thinking of culling this plant as it is weeks behind its fellow plants.
