    Seedsman’s Northern Soul

    These seeds were freebies from an order in Spring 2018 and were about 9-10 months old when I popped them in late January. I germinated 2 seeds and both popped. The flowering girls were vegged for 5 weeks and are currently starting week 6 of flower. Based on what I’ve read from various sources the flowering period is 10 weeks. The plants grew very differently right from the start with the big girl growing faster with a bit more spacing and the little girl trucking along behind her big sister but staying more compact.

    I took 8 clones of each plant the day I switched to 12/12 and after 2 weeks all had roots. I kept the best 4 clones from each plant and discarded the rest. The clones stayed in my aeroponic cloner for another 7 days so the roots could grow out a bit more. I then took the 4 clones of Big Sister and placed them in 3.5 gallon DWC buckets at .8 EC for Veg. I maintained the .8 EC through the first 3 weeks of Veg, they were topped 1 week ago and left to grow naturally until today when I started their training and increased EC to 1.2. The 4 clones of Little Sister will live in the aeroponic cloner until Big Sister moves to the flowering tent.

    Max target EC for Veg = 1.4
    Max target EC for flower=1.8
    Target PH=5.7-6.2

      I’m doing well oldjarhead100, I hope things are going good in your world too. I did the lollipop in 2 stages, a little before flower and a little more once the buds started to develop. It’s a little deceiving, I did take up to 3 nodes in spots but for the most part it was 1-1 1/2 nodes. She grew fast and I was a little late dropping my light down to control the spacing.

    A little less than 24 hrs later all the girls in training are happy and healthy.
