Well here I go again 😎

I did one last grow and was pretty successful, I think I can do better tho.

Starting to germ the seeds as soon as I check out this one Cherry Pie seed and hope it germs.
Cause it's old and I only have a couple left. After that I will germ the rest.
Seeds I hope to grow this time:
Strawberry-Banana
Durban Poison
Wedding Cake
Cherry Pie

Only 4 as I have a 4 pot setup.
It's the XL pots (3.9 gal)
25 gal res tank (Gravity feed)
Air pump for the AirDomes w/bubbler (adds air to root mix)
Water pump to mix water/nutrients in Reservoir
And the Float Valve System

I am using clay balls at the base and Ocean Forest mixed with coco coir and perlite.
Dyna-Gro nut procucts with some others added as it goes.

After cutting up the oil tank in the cellar I had much more room so I added a veg tent.
Plus some shelves to keep things handy.
Still working on where to plug in everything and in what order and which timer.

The larger tent is a 4' x 4' x 72" and has a flat peak to it, to make it fit in that rafter space with the furnace pipes there.
The smaller 3' x 2' x 62" veg tent has a vivosun 2' 4 bulb T5 light.
I am using digital timers this time around and Spider Farmer 6" an 4" exhaust n intake fans w/ temp n hummy control.
I also put a 1" layer of styrofoam sheets under the tents to insulate from the cold cellar floor.

Cold - Snow - Stormy Weather is here.
Well for a few days then it will melt away into a sloppy mess.
Our dog Skai loved it tho. she got Zoomies everytime she went out.
The cats, Panda and Shady were mezmerized by the snow, staring at it curiously.

It's slow going getting started again.
I had some old Cherry Pie seeds that I previously tried to germinate but failed but saved em
on the chance they might germ at a later date, Nope they failed.
I have only one CP seed left and it's from a previous grow.
I am germinating it now along with 2 Strawberry Banana, 1 Wedding Cake and 1 Durban Poison.
Tent is set up with T5 light and oil heater and timer is set, now it's a mater of waiting for them to pop.
I put 2 SB in cause they are not femmed so I might get a male, if no male will have to figure out what to do with the extra one.
Maybe use it for a mother.
Pic of 1st day of snow, that night we got 6 more inches.

Weed from the GH is dry in only a week, kinda fast imo.
I cut the buds off and stuck them in a mylar bag.
5 oz of free weed 😎
I think most of it is going into cookies tho.

2 seeds popped with nice looking legs!
Wedding Cake and Cherry Pie
I put them in soil and they are now in the veg tent.
5k lum's and 77-80 degrees, keeping an eye on the temp till it settles in.
Now if the Strawberry Banana and Durban Poison will just cooperate

Got excited and forgot to take a pic of the germinated seeds lol.

And the struggles with gemination continue, Hope to get something going soon
I put 6 seeds in dirt and put them under the light in the veg tent.
The 2 that popped didn't sprout yet so there's that too.
It might be the soil I put them in.
It is a seed starter type and very airy and light and does not absorb water very well.
I will change the next germ to the Ocean forest or what ever it is I brought.
If nothing shows up after a few days I guess I will start over.

Plop them in some water to float around in the dark for 12-24 hrs then
put them in a moist paper towel in the dark at 77°, that's about all I can think of to do.

My 1st grow all I did was put 8 or 9 seeds in some soil/dirt from the garden and stuck them
lil seedling cardboard pots with a dome outside in the sun. After 4 or 5 days I seen 8 sprouts!
I never had it so easy, after that it turned into a nighmare every time I tried to germ them lol.

My method is soak 1 seed overnight in 1/4 cup Spring water $0.99 gallon (Wm)...soak then wring out a small folded paper towel in the same water the seed soaked in. Add another soaked and wrung out folded paper towel to the top, tapped down onto the seed. I use small plastic cups with a lid per seed or strain make sure there is no standing water in the cup just the soaked towels. I then leave it in warm dark place...48 hrs later they're sprouted and I plant with the heads above the ground in warm wet soil. off the light to the side until they get leaves then a foot away from my t5's

yep pretty much did that and 2 did germ but am getting old and forgetful
Knocked one cup over an lost the sprout, it's somewhere in there not sure where tho lol
I think I used the wrong dirt and put them in 1/4 in tail down but now that you mention it I remember doing
that with the head above soil a bit. I'll give these a few days then start again if nothing happens but use dif soil this time.
