UdonPenguin - Super Critical Auto's - 8.02.2011

5 posts in this topic

Hello Fellow Hunters,

I would like to thank Franco for this opportunity to test GHSC seeds.

First, I recieved my seeds 2nd Febuary 2011.

SCA Packet

7.02.2011

I decided to germinate these seeds using a glass of water and leaving the seeds floating for 24hrs

Seed + Glass

I put 3 Seeds into the glass.

3 seeds floating

I left the seeds floating for 24hrs then returned to find them sunken ready for stage 2.

3 seeds sunken 1

3 seeds sunken 2

I then removed the seeds and placed them on a damp not soaked piece of tissue.

2 seeds on tissue

I folded the paper up and raped it gently with more then placed it in a warm area to leave for 24 - 48hrs.

All of this happened on the morning of the 8th Febuary 2011

The water used was hard water that had been cleansed in a filter jug then 1 drop of Super Thrive and mixed.

I will post again about the seeds progress in the next 24hrs.

I also wanted to post up the 2 diffrent Grow rooms I have for these Test Seeds

The first is my own in my room, its small but solid and will be intresting with size issues.

My Grow box

Ill be using a 125w cfl blue to start in, after a week of growth ill change the bulb to a 300w cfl red regular_smile.gif

only one of the seeds will go in this grow box the rest will go to another after the week in this.

The second grow area is a lot bigger and not fully finished yet but it looks like this:

New Flower Chamber

I have a 250W Philips Son-T (RED) in this area

250w Lamp

Thats All For Now Folks

More posts as soon as I can post them teeth_smile.gif

Tester Udon

It's 11:30pm and ive just put the germinated seeds into there jiffy peet pellits.

First i checked on the seeds:

3 Seed Germination

I then prepared the jiffys:

Prep 1

Then

Prep 2

When they were fully soaked I removed them from the water: (the water was a 2drop super thrive, slightly warm)

Prep 3

I then gentle removed the seeds onto a black bored for closer analysis. 2 of the 3 had devinatly germinated the 3rd one was starting to open so i gave it the benfit of the doubt and transfered them all.

Closer analysis

Using twizers I gentley placed each seed into there own jiffy ready to go into my Stealth box.

3 seeds in there pods

I placed the 3 jiffys together in my grow box, which was beening tested using the 300w red cfl lamp.

3 Jiffs Home

Should be an intresting week ahead regular_smile.gif

Over all an intresting week, trying the 300w was good as it seems it makes the box too hot so i may as well get a red 125w for the one ill have left in there.

If you look at the day Humidaty it seemed low to me? is this right? and how can i change this with out to much hassle?

comments and info on what to do to get better growth is very welcome

About us

Strain Hunters is a series of documentaries aimed at informing the general public about the quest for the preservation of the cannabis plant in the form of particularly vulnerable landraces originating in the poorest areas of the planet.

Cannabis, one of the most ancient plants known to man, used in every civilisation all over the world for medicinal and recreational purposes, is facing a very real threat of extinction. One day these plants could be helpful in developing better medications for the sick and the suffering. We feel it is our duty to preserve as many cannabis landraces in our genetic database, and by breeding them into other well-studied medicinal strains for the sole purpose of scientific research.
