Cuts were taken last week to be at two weeks on the 27th.
All clones were cut to have 2 nodes completely in the starter cube, dipped in powdered rooting hormone, sure to get it on the cut nodes. 2 tops on each (mom’s were topped about a week before clones were taken). When the clones were taken they had the double tops and 2 lower branches with their fan leaves. The two lower branches and their fan leaves were cut off after 1 week, leaving the plant looking like this. Freshly cut plants were foliar fed with a 5:2 ratio fulvic acid:kelp, and again today when trimmed.
The dome was on a heat pad for the first 3 days, 100% RH at about 28°C air temperature. Then off the heat pad, 90% RH and 25°C for 4 days. Keeping the temperature stable and dropping the humidity to about 65% RH next week when they go into veg. Room’s CO2 is about 600 PPM.
Lights on 24h. Higher blue spectrum. 100 micromoles for the first 3 days, working up to 250 after the first week.
Plants are hand watered once a day until they are fully flushed with fresh nutrient. Flood and drain works great too, so long as they’re raised on a rack and not left sitting in a puddle. pH 6.3, working down to 6.0 by the end of cloning. Air stone in the reservoir. Being fed 15-6-17 at an EC of 0.65 Fulvic, kelp and B vitamins added at 5%, 2% and 3% of the of the final weight of the fertilizer. Final EC is about 0.85.
Roots after the first week.
Still not sure which plant I’ll end up using in the cup. I’ve got CBDurban Poison, Northern Lights, and Orange Chemo to choose from this crop.
