Wow, that sucks man. I also had some no-shows on some varieties I was really looking forward too. But looking at your germ rates I have nothing to complain about. Hope you can make something out of this anyway!


It's a little chilly.

Good luck after the bumpy start.

 

What's your plan for isolation? Bagging whole plants? Individual flowers? Moving some plants to different locations?

 

That's going to be one of my big focuses for this year.

I got some plugs I can send you, not selling any this year. They didn't turn out as well as I had hoped. Getting tree plug trays next year. Like 6" root zones. 

 

They will be a little root bound but still should do well.

Can I help it if I'm one of those fanatical TD fans?I got my #3 Demonic jersey on, my face is painted, and I cant stop yelling WOOOOOO!!

Yup, whole plants. This is a pic from 2015. I made a bunch of "pillow cases" out of tulle netting and Gorilla Tape, then stapled the seams. Bungeed the bottom of the net to the top of the buckets. Worked out great. I bag the whole plant so you have more options for saving a desired phenotype of a pod, vs. gambling on one branch or flower (they're only up on that board so I could get the weed whacker in there :) )

That'd be awesome, D3. I feel horrible, letting your D3 Goat seedlings die. I had every intention on isolating those and helping with your community grow. I'm sure I could find a way to reciprocate. You're still not allergic to beer, right? ;)

Hey, Mike!!!

I'm sorry to hear about your germ rates and the loss of the remaining seedlings. I'm glad you've decided to go ahead with a grow. Great news that you'll have your sauce-making pods this year. I'm just starting, so I'm way behind, but I'm growing your cappuccino Scotch Bonnet and Justin's (WHP) Peach Scotch Bonnet this year. So if you need pods of those, I'd be happy to help...when they grow and ripen, of course. 😏 I'll be following.

Hey, Andy!!!! Really? I was wondering why my ears were ringing. Lol. Two cinders? Excellent!!! I hope they're doing well, and the rest of your grow, too. I'm just catching up here, so I'll check your glog. Sorry, Mike, for the interruption. Lol

I had to get them out of those little pots, so I transplanted them into 0.75 gallon containers. Hardening off this week, then going to transplant them into 5 gallon buckets by next weekend

Good to see how well your plants did in 5 gallon buckets.. just transplanted mine into buckets 5 days ago, had to mix 75 gallons of coco/perlite, what a job it was!

Thanks! Yeah, my back is killing me just thinking about it. Plus, I just got done spreading about 6 cubic yards of mulch around my house ;)
Been growing in buckets since I first started in 2014. I love the 5:1:1 mix
