Hi all. I thought it was time to start a thread to journal our progress now that we are getting up and growing again and have decided what we want to do with the girls we were gifted.
They're all starting to bounce back after some neglect and transplantation into soil. All except one that is. We assume it was root rot as it was one of the plants originally in coco. Five of the seven were in coco. The two we got that were in soil didn't even bat an eye when they got put in the big pot they're all in now.
The coco girls really did not like the change, but 80% survived.
The one that died wasn't doing the best when she got transplanted anyway. I didn't hope much hopes for her.
The biggest of the coco girls still looks a little sad, they need more nitorgen, especially her.
As it stands, we have six healthy mums. The coco girls all tried to flower but have returned to vegging now. The two soil girls spat out some preflowers but that was it.
We're in the process of getting an indoor area setup for clones. We just need to find that last little bit of motivation. I think it's hiding behind the couch.
The two soil girls are the two I'm mostly interested in, but they're all getting cloned.
We've also gotten a few dozen seedlings going too. They're not all going to get grown out, we're looking for particular phenos to keep as mums. SO has done just a little bit of breeding over the years. I might be biased, but it's the best cannabis I've ever had. I've had some pretty awesome named strains over the years, but nothing has ever come close to SO's.
In my intro post I said the girls would be getting potted up into a mix of "well composted horse manure (~70%), well composted cow manure (~15%), and well composted unused coco (cheap compressed brick stuff) and carp (~15%). The coco carp mix has well rotted down over the past couple of years.
That will then be mixed at a rate of 9 parts compost to 1 part local red and black clays."
They have been being watered with bore water and fed with a soluble Thrive mixture. That's it. They will be getting a feed of nitrosol shortly.
We don't baby plants around here. If they can't survive us and the environment, then they are too weak!
So, some pictures then, yes?
As you can see, they're all in one big pot.

Here we have one of the soil girls (top) and a coco girl (bottom). It kind of looks like one plant, but have a closer look at the leaves.

This is the big coco girl. She's recovering, slowly.

Two pots of the couple of dozen we have with seedlings. They're getting culled and survivors repotted within the next week.

And that is the current state of the devil's garden.
