Second Grow – Veg Time

The seedlings have had some explosive growth! I think it is fair to say these have entered the vegetative stage. The growth is so lush and the leaves so fat, I think I’ll need to prepare a second grow chamber to contain it all.

I lowered the plants by removing the 3″ box I had underneath the pots. These plants are starting to grow upward so that extra room from the light source was necessary.

I “topped” some of the plants by pinching that tight cluster of new leaves at the tip of the plant. This stops the tendency to grow one main cola, and splits the plant into two main stems. When the cannabis plant is topped at a young age, the plant will grow multiple colas by adding new branches for buds to develop on and (hopefully) keep the plant’s height down.

I will top the other plants when their new leaves get a bit larger. I always hesitate when I’m grabbing that bright green cluster of new growth. I hate to hurt my plants in any way but this is a necessary step.

Stalking the Wild Cannabis

During the First Grow, half of the plants were males. [read: First Grow – part 3] To ensure the females would be seedless, I had to remove the males from their space. I planted two of those male cannabis plants in a thorny hedge next to my house.

I really didn’t expect them to live. I thought the surrounding plants would crowd them out but these guys are survivors, growing right through the thicket. Look carefully at the photo above and you’ll see the cannabis in there.

The males were planted outside in May. I watched these plants grow along side the pokeweed, blackberries and fox grapes. These two plants seemed to thrive in the harsh conditions, rising high enough to get to some sun and display their swollen flowers to passing pollinators.

I am impressed with the tenacity of this plant. Born from 2 random seeds in my desk, germinated in less than ideal conditions, ripped from laboratory-like conditions and planted with little care into a highly competitive environment filled with insects and herbivores, yet these two male Cannabis plants still managed to fulfill their life’s mission to produce their flowers.

The Cannabis plants look right at home in that wild thicket. Even the insects seem to like the Cannabis flowers.

Tokermon Tuesday # 19

Tuesday again. Are you ready for another flying Tokermon? Meet Buzzz. This little devil is a fast flyer, jetting about the plants like a test pilot, Buzzz will land only when it needs to feed on the biggest fan leaves of the biggest plants.

Second Grow – Seedlings

This Second Grow started with germination of eight seeds on July 24, 2017. Two weeks later, the remaining seven seedlings continue growing strong and fast. The eighth seed sprouted but looked deformed, growing much slower than the rest. I euthanized the struggling little guy and felt a slight pang of guilt. Vegans, kiss my ass. Killing plants is still murder.

The first stages of growth for this Second Grow have been much less stressed than the first grow. I have been able to give them more attention and a much better environment for a healthy start.

I’ve planted these seedlings into bigger pots within 10 days of germinating. I felt this would accelerate growth into the “veg” stage and let the roots get comfortable in their new “forever” home. I risk losing at least half of these as I expect them to be males.

As a bonus experiment, I’ve left the “seventh seedling” in a starter pot. I will compare the growth of this seedling with the 6 planted ones. Already I’ve noticed the soil dries out much faster in the starter pot.

I plan to develop a second grow box so I can grow at two different environments. I will be able to effectively grow two higher yield crops with staggered harvest times yet still stay within the 6 plant limit the state lawfully allows. Ideally, 6 grow boxes would be the best way to grow as I could grow much larger plants, stagger the harvest times, grow different strains and experiment with a variety of grow techniques.

Did I mention how well these seedlings are growing?
