    I finally went and got some solo cups now all I need is some rat shot for a 22 lol ,I think a drill will work to but just not as fun ,I looked this morning and I saw one of the cbd plants is starting to grow a tail , here's a question how long does everyone let the tail get before planting (yes I know its a tap root lol) ,I let mine get to between a 1/4 and a 1/2 ,I have had them get much longer and was still able to plant without breakage

      This is how I do it now as well. After about 20 hours, they start to crack then they go straight into soil in solo cups then covered with saran wrap, I don't dick around with paper towels anymore. It's one less step, less chance of human error getting rooted seed from towel to soil and it has improved my time from seeds in package to standing plants by 12-24 hours.

      LOL, I always keep a couple of boxes of .22 shotshell on top of the piano and the .22 on the piano bench. I look like Bill Murray, but hunting those pesky red squirrels.

        Well played

        Is this your preferred method of cloning? Solo cup (or similar pot) under the dome?

        Unfortunately yes. It turns out usually. I'm not highly confident in it but I have time

        LOL - a ringing endorsement.
        sounds like cloning (the cutting takes or it doesnt)

        I'm interested, and will be keeping an eye on this, its a step up from a pellet and watching for roots and dealing with not damaging them as I uppot

      Happy new year!

      due to life, I am a little less prepared than I would have liked

      onward and upward

      trying these new (to me) coco pellets. Soaking in treated/pH'd water. The hole is really large

      2 different cuts Trainwreck (left) and Cream and Cheese CBD (right). Dipped in some mycorhizae powder, and into the plug. Had to massage the plug to get the coco on the stem - they may get a wrapping

      Deep down in my heart of hearts, I really want to see where the Trainwreck will take me (currently considering taking a 'just in case cut )

        Where do you get your Coco pellets/pods?

      46 hours in and I have two tails and a split bean. One will go in "The Red Solo Cup (let's have a party)" tomorrow. The other two will just be kissing cousins in the same tent.

        I thought I had some root riots upstairs I did 3 so I will wait a couple of hours to go get some from the cellar , I still use the root riots because I can keep them up here for a few days where the ambient temp is somewhat stable (200 year old house again) the 2 dark devils will go directly into solo cups

            I officially HATE ice storms! 2007 we had an inch, power lines down, 1 home had no power for over a week, I still have broken limbs hanging in trees. Many 150 year old trees went down, sounded like a rifle shot followed by the crash of limbs hitting the ground. IF we must have this weather, give me snow!

              Just so you know I will not be starting my cup till around the 15th. I'm going up to visit Retodd next friday. He will start his then and I'll make a clone when I get back. I'm not worried about the missed days. I'll catch up quick.

              That being said we did start a few at the farm. They are Critical CBD. I'll take some pics next time I go out that way. My brother in law decided to throw some in even though he isnt a member here. He really did it so we could see if we could get that strain certified as required by the state to be under .3% thc. Usually they can be 10% thc but we have a few tricks up our sleeves.
              You may win the race, but you pass all the best things in life on the way.

                  Came back from an all day trip to find all 3 seeds cracked. Into the cups they went and only 1 left for tomorrow as i have to dig out my 3rd growing medium before planting.

                  All 3 seeds in their little red cups and in 3 different mediums. coco/perlite, clay pebbles/rockwool and easyplug block. Remo Nutrients and under 33 watts of 5800K , 2000 lumens of Led bulbs. 80% RH, 22C
