Looking excellent.

Since you have spares maybe top a couple and experiment.

I use 6,500K bulbs in T8's and T5's. These plants were scattered about 3 different shelves, so I see no real difference in the fixtures. I keep them about 5-8"s from the lights and make sure to watch for light/heat issues.

Thanks!

 

Being they're so close in growth I do plan on some mad scientist activities on a few. One thing I've yet to ever do is really push the nutes. So far they have a weak 1/4 strength application of Alaska fish ferts that I soaked the Pro Mix in (once in the pots) before moving them into the #1 pots. I also added 1 tbsp of Azomite and 2 tbsp of worm castings to the pots as well. I haven't had to water them since the transplanting. I'm impressed with the vigor of the YBS, these are quickly catching up to plants I sowed 30 days earlier.

Agreed with Devv, these plants are just itching to grow and thrive. Germinated in 2-3 days, nearly 100% germination rate, and growing uncontrollably since! I put these in to soak on January 10th, put them in the rooters the next day, and they germinated a few days later.. unreal. I think it was the 15 minute toast in the broiler that sped up my germination time. Char them until they look like rocoto seeds. Works like a charm.

Anyways, here's some of my potential contestant plants. I'm getting worried they'll outgrow me too soon. It's barely mid February and they're already filling out the solo cups... I usually can't get these in the ground til May here in NY... oh well lol

Wow, you guys are kicking my butt! Looks like I need to do some work on my grow room. It only gets about 65 degrees back there and the humidity is super low. I always looked at it as a way of keeping the growth in check, as space is limited. Maybe I should put my competition plants in the oven for a couple of hours each day to keep the roots warm?

I've noticed really long loading times for the summary so going forward I'll update a new doc with Last Progress Photo Posted.

 

It will be, without bias of course, sorted from biggest to smallest regardless of date.

 

There are many pics that are old so we may have some real gems jumping up the list so get posting.

 

If I've missed someone please shout.

Sorry guys, on business currently. I put up some pictures on my Glog that my gf took. If you are trying to get a picture of everyone's plant so far the best ones would be on there. I have a pic of my AeroGarden and there's a cardboard cup with coco in it, that's one of my YBS.

It'll be like, the 24th before I can get another to post here unless I ask my gf to send me more.

The amount of effort you're putting into this is scary. I'm now stating to think that you have a satellite pointed at my Amarillo.... Or even a drone that you send across the tasman every night with night-vision gear...

 

But good work on the summary, its a really good resource!

 

 

I'm very interested to see how the Winter grow goes for you kiwis... :onfire:

Nice work!

 

I actually moved 99.9% of my plants outside until...whenever the forecast sucks. Gotta look at it twice a day here ;)

Thanks TBG.

 

The drones and satellites are only Stage 1 . They are the least of your worries :cool:
