Just a quick note to self for future reference… Light is 38” from seedling @ 25% power.

I had to perform helmet head surgery on 2 of them. One was Strawberry Cheesecake #1 (which I accidentally ripped a cotyledon leaf halfway through, and the other was Sour Power #1, number 2 might not have made it so I’m hoping this little plant has some will to live and opens up soon.

My Hella Jelly #1 looks like the tips of the first true leaves are going bad. Sorta like a piece of fresh spinach leaf that’s not too fresh anymore and getting that soft dark before it becomes slimey. Maybe pop a new one soon in anticipation of it dying.

I’ll try and throw some pics up tomorrow.

Hard to say without seeing them, but they are tougher than you think. You might get lucky. They usually come off on their own. Misting them seems to help. However, I have had my times when there wasn't any other options if I wanted the sprout to survive.

I actually used small scissors to cut the shell on the Sour Power because it wasn’t going to come off. Felt like I was tying flies, just missing the little needle nose vice and big magnifying glass lol.

Already lost a Sour Power…it germinated but the tail stopped growing after put in dirt. Still have 1 left.

Here’s the seedlings after about a week in dirt. Strawberry #1 has a ripped cotyledon leaf from when I removed the shell, but seems to be growing still. Sour Power isn’t looking too good…but the Strawberry #2 has been the most successful and strong so far. I ripped out my Hella Jelly #1 seedling because the 2 serrated leaves had dark green wilted dying tips. I planted a Hella Jelly seed in it’s place without germinating to see if it grows. I also popped and planted an All Gas OG seed as a backup in case only 2 survive.

Around 50% humidity / low to mid 70s temps. Put the dome back on to help with humidity.

I lost a new sprout this last run. My cat took a nap on it. We didn't know she was in there. She sneaked in and thought it was a nice warm place for a nap.

Sorry about your sour power. Hopefully you have another you can sprout.

Haha nice. Probly loves the heat lamps. I had 3 sour power seeds…first one was male, 2nd one stayed a fetus…so my money is on this last seedling pictured, but it doesn’t look too healthy lol.

There was a seedling mat inside the tent. I set it at 72F. My seedling tent is in the coldest part of the basement and the warmth just seems to help. My cat thought so too apparently ...

One Week

ok so it’s been about a week. All Gas OG broke soil, and the Hella Jelly I planted without germinating first also popped through the dirt. No helmet head either…I just popped the seed in the dirt about 1/4 inch and drizzled some water in the dirt for the first 2 days. Haven’t watered at all really, few sprays of spring water here and there but letting the soil dry out a little more before watering.

Everything is looking good, leaves are sorta pale light green, maybe thats normal. I spray water inside the dome container about once a day to help with humidity. Tent is reading 71F 50%H with the light about 37 inches from leaves @ 30% power.

Sour Power has grown pretty big since Friday (if you compare the serrated leaves to cotyledons)

Loving the profile of the SF4000. So far I had great experiences with Spider Farmer lights, the SE3000 and SE5000 were awesome. This one we shall see…hoping the heat isn’t too bad at 75% or more power during harvest. AC will be off by then lol.

No more budget at the moment (save whatever bottle of nutes I run out of first before harvest lol) but would love to hear about it. Maybe in the future the 3x3 for veg, 5x5 for flower.
Thats a great idea…I bookmarked the link, thanks!


Nice! I wish some of those oldies were still around…it’s even hard or impossible to find Sour Diesel anymore and I’m at the epicenter of where AJ’s cut was in abundance! I think a lot has to do with legalization and all the new strains blowing up everywhere, people moved on from keeping those genetics going.

The Sour Power bag seed I’m growing was closest to a good SD I’ve had in a long time. I know it could be totally different but I’m hoping it gives me something similar. Either way it’ll be an experience to see what happens.
oh how I miss Sour Diesel. As a Mamiko Seeds fanatic (I swear i dont work for them lol) they have a nice NYCD x forum cookies strain. Supposed to have alot of the sour d in it so might wanna check that out too! Evidently its super easy to grow too.

Awesome thanks for the tip! I’ll have to bookmark it for my next seed purchase. SD used to be abundant around here and now it’s impossible to find. Everything is cakes, candy and ice cream (which I also love) but I miss that musty grapefruit and fuel. The high from a true sour diesel is in a class of it’s own for sure.

i too have ptsd and cheese cookies is a fricken uplifting strain like ive never smoked before. Try it out, you will enjoy it!
Yeah mines been acting up like a motherf’r lately. I have good days & bad days. On top of that been depressed as hell lately! Really need a good strain, I hate antidepressants! At one point I wouldn’t leave room,barricade doors,& slept with lead pipes & knives under my pillow like Anjolina Jolie! I credit my gf with getting me out in public socially & making things better but it never goes away.

I would suggest Pineapple Upside Down Cake. I know every strain can affect people differently but it really calms me and inspires a very happy care-free mood. Although I do prefer a more energetic high, but if you’re used to smoking hybrids or indica it shouldn’t make you sleepy.

Yeah,I usually like those strains that make me nice & calm. But I’ve also found great mixes that gave me a sense of euphoria & well being.

I haven’t had to give any water until today…probably still could’ve gone a couple more days, but I wanted to see how they react to a little water. Hella Jelly #2 leaves are sorta drooping.

Removed the dome. 73F 50%RH.
Tap + Herc @ 6.3ph about a shot glass for each. Let’s see which ones are the light weights and who’s the lush.

Yeah man the mind is a powerful thing, sometimes its a fantastic tool for fun and creativity, other times it can be self-predatory. Gotta just puff the herb and let each toke burn all that shit away, no better medicine for the mind and body.

but yeah bro the cheesecookies is like a 60/40 safiva indica, doesnt make me sleepy but its not racey like a haze. For me its just right, and the cheese strains are easy to grow/terp heavy strains.
