    Update 4: 7.28.21
    First Official Day of the grow starts today. Everything up to this point has been in preparation of starting vegetation mode. I do note the date I start germination, the date they have germinated and been put in net pots, even how long it is until they pop their heads up after being 'placed' in the net pot; however I don't call it the start of the grow until the girls have kicked their caps. Now that the girls are 'seedlings' as opposed to just germinated seeds, vegetation mode can begin and the growing starts.

    I've got to hit up the local lumber store at some point soon as I noticed this morning that both of my tub lids have splits starting from the center. The girls will weigh in at 8 - 10 lbs each when nearing maturity and that much pressure on a two inch hole that already has a crack is just begging for trouble. If all goes well 3lbs+ of that weight on each plant will be buds [wet weight] and that doesn't include weight from the stalk, branches, stems or leaves.

    TIP: Should you ever find yourself in a similar situation where you need to replace a damaged tub lid, the earlier in your grow that you do so the better as soon root growth will make removing or replacing a 2 inch net pot from a 2 inch hole nearly impossible.

    some may notice there's no update 3: I figured you were all smart enough to know it's the one between 2 and 4

    Chocolate Mint OG - Day One
    I probably won't do another update until the girls are at least a week old or until roots hit the water.
    Have a good one folks... and Happy Pharming!

    Twenty hours in their net pots and heads are above the soil
    7.27.21



    As these girls grow they will be trained out as in the diagram below (top down) to produce 40-60 flowering branches per plant

    Update 2: 7.26.21
    Time to get the babies in their net pots ... And they're off! For future reference the Banana Kush is in the tub with the orange ring around the air intake tube

    Net pots are a sandwich of ceramic stones, jiffy pod with germinated seed, ceramic stones.
    The tubs contain: water, hydroguard, ph down, two cheap and cheerful 2 dollar aerator stones and are filled to just below the net pots.
    Bubbles from the aerator stones break and wet the ceramic stones, which in turn keeps the jiffy pod damp but not wet. Stones on top, keep light from entering the tub.
    The light is currently at 36 inches above the top of the buckets.

    If I mess this one up it will be EXACTLY like my wife says 'Well, that's the first time I've ever done that again!'

    Update 1: 7.25.21
    Sorry TOKABIGONE both seeds are Indica dominant hybrids. I loves me some couch lock
    Growing with the moon... Here's why I say it works; started the seeds yesterday about 2pm currently 24 hours later AND I just checked the seeds- the Cholate Mint OG seed (7 years old) has a tail and the Banana Kush (5 years old) is swollen to twice it's size and will have a tail before morning. Both seeds should be ready to go in net pots by tomorrow.

    Ok I'm in. Are either of those Sativa leaning? I'm hoping to make my fall start in late August with Acapulco Gold and Panama strains. Old school strains with hybridization but close to original levels of cannabinoids, terpenes and effects. My grow cabinet is on the screen porch so I'm not gonna battle the heat but I do want to watch you do your thing so I can apply it to that grow. Happy Growing with no stress and great rewards!

    Holiday Treats -(here we grow again)-
    Time to start now for tasty Holiday treats. Chocolate Mint OG and Banana Kush started germination today.
    The Plan:
    * Start Seeds with the moon - X
    * Have seedlings in tubs by 8.1.21 - X (actual date 7.26.21)
    * Start bloom by 10.1.21 -X (actual first day of flowering 10.4.21)
    * Harvest by 12.3.21 - X (actual harvest date 11.27.21)
    * Have Holiday Tree Treats for gifts by 12.24.21
    I'll be showing the BU2B's PPP Method with two different strains. I'm not planning anything special or extraordinary. Hoping for a 'quiet' grow without incident and some nice buds in time for the Holidays. Interested parties are more than welcome along for the ride.
