They are all progressing nicely and continue to be vigorous growers.
I'm germinating some of ReikoX's breeder pack seeds, all are Lowryder x ***, the other parents were The Devil #1, Ultraviolet #1 and Ultraviolet #2. I'll keep updates on here for them too.
Week 2 photos
Yesterday I watered in a teaspoon of molasses, a tablespoon of Gnatrol BTi powder (to keep the number of fungus gnat larvae down) and a teaspoon of Potassium Silicate (same concentration as Dynagro Protekt) diluted into 2 gallons of water.
The Pot-Sil is just to make sure there is a little bit of immediately available Silica. There are a bunch of organics in the newer top soil that have silica in them, but I'm unsure on their decomposition rates and don't want to risk not providing the plant every thing they might want.
Fermenting some Lacto-IMO right now so I'll start watering some of that in next week with a touch of molasses, adding any other things that the plant says it wants, like compost tea.
Advise from the community is always welcome. Even after a decade of growing I still love to hear about other people's grow methods (we're all stronger together ) and I like feedback because I either learn something or have good habits reinforced!
In addition to growing cannabis I also have a habit of saving less magical plants. If anything interesting happens with them I'll post photos for those too.
This is a black bamboo (Phyllostachys nigra) that I saved from a sidewalk about 6 months ago. It got my vermicompost organic soil and gets compost tea every time I brew it. You can see a new shoot in the middle. It has only been about a month since the bud ruptured through to the soil's surface. I've read that each rhizome usually puts off one bud per growing season that just slightly exceeds the height of it's older shoots. Because I'm not sure how big the plant was before it was cut down I don't know how tall this shoot will get.
