Day 52 of Veg, the plants are filling in quite a bit over the last few days since the topdressing. They're growing, just slowly.

End of 8 weeks of Veg, Day 56, we're at Day 70 in soil. I schwazzed the plants like I did the last couple of grows. I discovered not one, but three more males. I haven't been looking sincing the other males showed preflowers a few weeks ago.

I transplanted my #12 Colombian Miracle mother plant and the two MAC plants I had in 2 gal Rain Science bags. I took 4 clones off of the #12 Colombian Miracle plant to make sure I get one to root to be a new Mother plant. The last two clones of the MAC Stomper are starting to root, but still not ready. The #3 plant of MAC Stomper handled the transplant well yesterday so I at least have a clone of that plant as of right now to keep as a Mother plant worse case scenario. I don't want to wait another week to two weeks to start Flower. So last phenohunt was ten females and two males and this strain is three females, eight males, and one seed that didn't make it past the seedling stage.

The MAC Stomper plants earlier before defoliation.

After the major defoliation and lollipopping. I take just about every single leaf off except the top two nodes of each branch. I cut away any branches that don't have their top node reaching the halfway point of the height of the plant. I take off any smaller "popcorn" flower sites lower down the branch. The goal is to send as much energy to the main colas and flower sites that receive more light closer to the top of the canopy. The two MAC plants front right and the #12 Colombian Miracle pheno is back right. Rearranged the left side of the tent as well. It's now from front to back, 2-3-1.

The MAC Stomper plants ended up getting 26 hours of consecutive light, I was shooting for 24 hrs and then I found the three males. The new light schedule will be 8 am-8 pm so they'll end up getting 14 hours of consecutive darkness to trigger the flowering hormones. This is going to be one frosty and colorful tent!

Day 1 of Flower starts today. The plants are looking great this morning! I watered everything with a beneficial microbes cocktail.

Azos @ 1 tbsp/2.5 gal
Mikrobs @ 5 tsp/2.5 gal (increased rate of 1 tsp/gal to 2 tsp/gal)
Teraganix EM-1 @ 30 ml/gal
pH @6.0 before adding the Azos, pH 6.3 after

Gave the MAC Stomper plants 1 gal each and the newly transplanted MAC and Colombian Miracle plant got 1.5 gals.
Increased the PPFD to 600-700.

The new MAC Mother plant and MAC Stomper #3 clone are doing well too.

Day 2 of Flower, the plants are already filling back in quite a bit. Gonna set up my AC Infinity Cloudline 6" exhaust fan with the carbon filter on it for the impending increase in smell. The first trellis will be going up today or tomorrow.

Transplanted the MAC Mother plant into a 2gal Rain Science bag. The soil mix I used was two thirds Sunshine Advanced Grower's Mix #4 to one third Coast of Maine Stonington Blend. I added Stonington plant food into the mix according to the online feed schedule. I did the same thing with the plants I transplanted into the 5 gal Rain Science bags and added Coast of Maine's fish bone meal according to the same online feed schedule from Coast of Maine. I used up the DynoMyco I had for the 5 gal bags, didn't have any left for the 2 gal bag. Not sure if that product is worth it at this point. I'l have to do some true experiments with clones in the same environment when I have the space to do it. Should be able to start doing that in either the next crop or two crops from now.

As soon as the basement warms up enough I'l be utilizing my 100 sq ft tent and most likely will be buying another one as soon as I get my Caregiver's license. Made a lot of progress on that this week. Gotta wait on the State of Maine to get back to us now.

The Mother plants plus a Space Spinach F1 hybrid I got seeds of at the Portland Flower Show last spring and some radish microgreens for my wife. Gotta get a few more of the spinach plants started because one plant doesn't really produce a whole lot...

Running a single 24W LED Barrina strip light over the spinach and microgreens. They're getting 150-200 PPFD.

Day 3 of Flower, got the AC Infinity Cloudline 6" ventilation system hooked up. The first trellis up as well. Fed the MAC Stomper plants this morning and decided to take another clone off of the #1 & #2 MAC Stomper plants because it doesn't look like the other clones I took a couple of weeks ago are gonna root for me, fingers crossed.

Fed the plants this morning.

Day 5 of Flower, found another male MAC Stomper plant, late bloomer. Pulled that out and stretched the plants a bit more under the trellis.

This morning with six plants.

The male flowers on #3
20230215 074840

Down to five plants
20230215 120624

This #2 MAC Stomper plant in the front left is about twice the size as the #1 MAC Stomper. I have a clone of the #3 male plant in a 0.5 gal container. I wasn't intending on keeping a male, but maybe I should and create the F² generation. Not sure as of right now, but only two females out of the pack of 12 seeds. Not much of a phenohunt anymore...

Great looking plants!

That's really unlucky with the only 2 females. I had some similarly bad luck with Etho's seeds a couple grows ago.

The #2 looks like it's going to be HUGE.
