6 -(Strawberry Fields x X-18)
Nice @Scissor-Hanz. Dropping mine in something real similar tomorrow morning. Maybe midnight if I’m still up. Happy New Years!
Hi @Scissor-Hanz and @Kalgrae, I haven't received my testers yet, but I'm gonna pull a chair and watch you guys' grow til i receive mine. Nice fat beans.. Happy New Year !Gaz
Dang hopefully soon, bud.Mail can be crazy this time of year, as you know.Mine said out for delivery for DAYS before they actually got delivered.
Happy New Year.!Probably the mail as you say, I've no doubt they'll arrive soon, in the meantime I'll be watching you guys grow the X18 crosses .. happy growing GazEdit: tried tracking ,and my beans were only processed through usps on Jan 1st, so will be sitting in London for a bit, then onto myself then I can get started too..
Ok guys, It's time to germinate some @buryseeds Starfighter x X18. Here's hoping to find some worthy keepers. I'm looking forward to it.
@Gaz29 I don't knwo what the heck is going on with yours, that thing has gone overseas and back 3 times now and been in transit over a month. Not much I can say bud, except keep watching the tracking and hope it arrives eventually
Got them all in some dirt late last night. Had to move some stuff around before I could plop em in. Thanks again @buryseeds for the opportunity to grow these out.
@Gaz29 sorry to hear the post is so damn slow. Sending Positive thoughts your way!🤞
Edit: Strains are (Roxbury x X18) & (Lemontree x X18)
I've got signs-of-life on a couple (SF x X-18) Very cold here but, soil-temp is around 78ºF with a heat-mat/thermostat.
Couple still to pop, but viability looks good (after what was probably a VERY COLD trip) Temp is 77F - 80F, humidity high (under a dome still)Hope everybody else is also successful. Good-Luck guys @buryseeds (SF x X-18) , (LT x X-18)
Your are in a cold dry climate, yes?
What is RH outside of dome?
Slight yellowing is of interest.
Wondering if this is the color of the sprouts emerging, or result of diminished air flow.
Around 30% today.Very dry here for winter (north-east) @99PerCent.... as you probably know
Edit: misting the dome about 5 times a day.
When do you anticipate weening them off of this treatment?
They don't look that yellow in reality, (camera flash)Those ones also literally JUST emerged from the seed/soil.We'll be ok @99PerCent I'm changing the air frequently, and opening the dome lid slowly.
Edit: You'll see that the ones which emerged yesterday are forming true leaves and looking nice and green already.
I'll get some wind on them as soon as possible, so they don't turn to floppy bean-poles. Just giving the last few beans a chance to pop. Without the dome for insulation, temps are around 69-72F. I don't get great germination-rates at those temps.
yes, the tiny leaves are yellow for 1 day before the chlorophyll kicks in. I can never figure out what makes some batches of seeds "go to string" and get 10 inches high and others stay short. I think brighter light helps but it seems to be random.
So this is an entirely Massachusetts-bred crop
Yes, absolutely. I agree, HID/closer lighting produces the shorter/ stronger seedling.
You Massachusetts guys have an awesome crew. Must be really dedicated guys. Not sure I'd even have the courage to be a grower in 1990's-2000's USA.
Haven't seen @buryseeds check-in for a while, hope all is well with him.
He's been checkin in.
it was a little more scary than Canada but not much, this was one of the safest places for weed in the US before legalization. Of course being black or latino anywhere in the US puts you at much higher risk, but Mass. was pretty lenient on small-time growing.
Ok so far 9 out of 12 have sprouted. Hopefully the last 3 will sprout also. Well 9 go into some peat pellets.
