Kaia Kush, outdoors

Recommended Posts

Figuring I could save me a traintiicket to Amsterdam by ordering this year's seeds on the website, I placed the order and waited for the postman to deliver. That all went very well: got the envelope in a couple of days and merrily opened it. A surprise awaited me - there were no seeds in the container, that apparently had been cut open. Yet the envelope was perfectly intact, and apart from that I live in the Netherlands so no way that an overzealous customs officer would've done it.

 

Ah, the mysteries of life!

 

Fortunately, Bam-Bhole came to the rescue on the forums, telling me that GHC hides the seeds in the package, in a little piece of foam rubber. Thanks again, my brother!

 

The seeds are soaking in a glass of luke-warm water now:

The sheer magick of a tiny seed growing into a huge bush of ganja goodness never ceases to amaze me.

Today, there is germination. This is the first one to sprout and I just put it in the soil.

Well, it seems one of the seeds is reluctant to germinate. Ah well. So it goes. Can't push Mother Nature into doing something when she doesn't feel like it. And these two seedlings have found the surface.

The time has come to move the seedlings to the pots where they'll grow into healthy and happy young ladies. And with today being the first day with real nice weather, they're now enjoying the first warm sunlight in their lives. No need to worry about them getting cold at night: when evening falls, I'll move them inside again. They'll take up permanent residence outside (in huge pots) in the second half of May.

After a week of being outside in the sunlight during the day, this young one is definitely loving her life.

Meanwhile, back at the ranch, the soil in her new home is nicely settling in after being fertilized with with a healthy dose of dried cow-dung. The bottomless bottle I dug in will make it a lot easier to water the Lady once she’s fully grown and the soil has turned into a tight carpet of roots. The little tubes are there to make sure the roots get enough air. I put them in already so I won’t have to damage the roots later on.Meanwhile, back at the ranch, the soil in her new home is nicely settling in after being fertilized with with a healthy dose of dried cow-dung.

The sciarid (in Dutch 'varenrouwmug') is a nasty little critter that loves to eat its way through root systems, thus making the life of a plant utterly miserable. Needless to say, its larvae are no better. So when I spotted those in the soil, I immediately refreshed all 100 liters of it. Fortunately, the seedlingcups hadn't decomposed yet so the roots of the little ladies were still unharmed. A narrow escape, it seems!

Larva ugly. Use neem oil in small amounts, along with the irrigation water. 

 

On earth, a little lejor plant, you can throw coffee grounds, that away slugs and worms too bad.

 

I hope everything going well, good luck with the bugs, friend :)

Good bye Jack Herrer, Good morning Kaia Kush :)

 

Great to see you here once again ready to rock the balcony ;)

Best of luck for this run, i hoep everything will go well. It seems the reculant to germinate was catching a little bit on the latest pictures, doing better now?

 

Have a great season full of sun i'll pop in from time to time to follow as always ;)

What can I say. Wake up and turn I loose. And those sciarid bugs are a nasty bitch.

Two sisters in the sunshine and me fiddling with the focus on my phonecam. All seems to be well with the little ones.

When I left the house yesterday afternoon, the weather was gorgeous so the girls stayed outside. About an hour later, a thunderstorm broke loose. I worried a bit, but there's not a whole lot you can do against the whims of Mother Nature. When I got home, they were both smiling - sturdy little ones, that's what they are.

I'm sure they even actually loved that storm and laughed at it ;) It can only give you stronger girls :)

 

Have a good grow, all is going well under the Dutch sun :)
