Hello and Happy pre-4/20 Sunday(sales are among us, look around for that piece of gear!). It's transplant day for these 2 ladies from their solo cup to the 3 gallon on their way to eventual 15 gallon. I use Berger soil mix, usually OM-6, Green Sunshine Company's Earth Dust dry nutrients. Amended w/ local worm castings, Microbial Mass, Recharge. IPM based on Canncontrol, neem, castile soap, cleanliness, DE, sticky pads... These Photoperiod cultivars are from MSNL and are Blue Cheese. Both broke ground Easter morning in a Super Sprouter under a t5- Day 2. A bit leggy- not going to use that method again.
Today's(4/18) roots- Ready to go...
Soil has been in the bags kept moist for couple of weeks "cooking". Hole and roots get some microbial inoculant- Recharge is what I have found to be widely used and I have had success with it. The Radicle bags also have option for velcro side to help with removal at transplant time. Material is soft enough to not need it, but it helps. These bags are also a mesh material that air prunes.
Home next to the Rain Science 15 Gallon bags they will eventually go into. Pot risers on order. To the farm this week to grab some hay for mulch layer.
I plan on scrog net in a couple of weeks and get them filled in, enjoy the LST process and learn to apply next time.
For the gear nerds...4"AC I w/67 controller, Terra-Bloom 24", M/H SP3000 The plan is for weekly update posts and very few "9-11" panic post's for questions, but that's the value of community, right?
I hope all is well for Mr. Grow It this afternoon (THANK YOU for the Patreon encouragement of these being healthy enough to move forward) and I hope all is well for everyone else- no kidding about those 4/20 sales, best prices on most stuff until Black Friday!
