I started to germinate some beans on Sunday 13th June 2021.

I put 4 beans between damp kitchen roll and put them in a drawer in the dark.

Two days later on the 15th of June 2021 three of the beans have split their shell cases.

The next day 16th of June 2021 the tap root on one of the beans was long enough to place into a root sponge.

The bean on the left has not even cracked its shell case so far and the been on the far right popped its shell case but then stalled and it looks like it has dropped out, so I placed the last of the 5 Chemical Bride beans between the damp kitchen roll.

The following day the 17th of June 2021 the tap root on the second bean was long enough to put it into a root plug.

The following day 18th of June 2021 the fifth bean cracked its shell casing and the tap root was visible.

On the 19th of June 2021 the tap root on the fifth bean was long enough to put it into a root plug.

Then I placed the seedlings under the fluorescent tube to saok up some rays.

I had a look at my bean stash and decided to pop a Green House Cheese bean, so I placed a Green House Cheese bean between some fresh damp kitchen paper and place it in the drawer in the dark.

On the 22nd of June 2021 the Green House Cheese bean had germinated and the tap root was long enough to place into a root plug.

22june-2021-root-plug.thumb.jpg.89e8e6abe844ee1ce1f16b70f91a116e.jpg

I then place the root plug with the Chemical Bride seedlings under the fluorescent tube.

Four days later on the 26th of June 2021 the Green House Cheese had caught up and grown to the same size as the Chemical Bride seedlings under the fluorsecent tube.

26june-2021-seedlings-fluro.thumb.jpg.db771929e364ca723893a2d167dcaaff.jpg

All of the seedlings are growing well and on the 28th of June 2021 they all had decent root growth so I put them into plastic pots.

On the 04th of July I harvested the Kings Juice plants so the Chemical Bride and Green House Cheese have moved into the grow tent under the LED soaking up the rays.

04july-2021-grow-tent.thumb.jpg.f8b5ea3be8b550e2d87570bc3aeb7aa0.jpg

I let the girls have a week to get used to being in the grow tent under the LED and then on the 11th of July 2021 I put them into the root pouches I had used for the Kings Juice plants that I cleaned with the pressure washer the day before.

I put the plants in a bucket and then took them outside to the shed and put them into the root pouches.

I will let the plants settle into their new root pouches for a week and then I will top them all.

These Root It sponge plugs, I found on ebay about 1 AUD delivered.

I use rockwool and also split for root, but mostly direct seed.

Have also put paper divider between divided block and seed each side.

Do you find these sponges work well for bare root plant?

 

Rockwool in mylar coated boxes.

Time for a progress update on the 3 Chemical Bride girls at week 6 of veg.

On Wednesday I mixed 3ml per litre of grow feed and 3ml per litre of root stimulant and I made 2 litres of the feed solution and then I gave each plant 400ml of the solution.

Then on Saturday I gave each plant 500ml of water and on Sunday I took some photos and topped the plants.

I will let them continue to veg and recover until the end of the month and them get them flowering, I am well pleased with their progress, I have no idea which is the Green House Cheese I forgot to mark it, all will be revealed in the fullness of time.

Happy growing... 👍

Time for a progress update on the 3 Chemical Bride girls at week 7 of veg.

On Tuesday I mixed 3ml per litre grow feed and 3ml per litre root stimulant gave each plant 700ml of the feed solution and then I put them back into the grow tent under the LED to continue soaking up the rays.

Yesterday the dirt in the root pouches was dry and all of the plants felt light so I gave them all 1 litre of water.

Here are some images I took this afternoon.

All of the plants have responded well since I topped them they just carried on regardless, I think the Co2 has helped with this and the heat the top temperature in the tent in the day has been 30C I have kept the tent door unzipped at the bottom to help air flow, as well as having all the windows open and the extractor fan in the tent running,.

I am glad the weather has cooled down over the past couple of days, despite the fact it did not seem to affect the plants, it was well hot here in the UK, its been tropical.

The Super Lemon Haze and Sweet Mango are now in week 8 of flowering, according to the information on the GHS web store the flowering period is 7 weeks so as soon as the dirt in the root pouches is dry I will harvest them.

According to the weather forecast the warm sunny weather will change later in the week and the bud on both plants is as fat as it is gonna be, so its time to cut, I am looking forward to checkin the Super Lemon Haze it smells great.

More updates to follow, happy growing. 👍
