Plant have continued to grow in what I would consider a predictable manner.
1. MiracleGro 24-8-16 (#2)
2. Local Granular 26-16-11 (#4)
3. Tacre Hidro 11-20-25 (#6)
4. Calmag (#5)
5. Epsom salts (#3)
6. None (#1)
Plant #1 with no fertiizer has its first flower buds, continues growing steady but slowly. The foliage is looking healthy.
Plant #2 with Miracle still in the lead. Very nicee foliage and has set lots of pods, some will probably be ready to harvest in the following weeks. Still producing flowers like crazy. So far the largest and most productive plant by a large margin.
Plant #3 with epsom salts is the one thats looking the worst. Even though its still larger than the no ferts plant, its foliage is looking yellowish and scrawny. It has set exactly 3 pods but it now has no more flowers, it dropped all of them and is no longer producing more.
Plant #4 with the local granular fert is looking good. Has a nice amount of set pods and plenty of flowers, foliage looks green and nice.
Plant #5. The cal-mag dosed plant is looking better than its epsom salts counterpart. It still continues to grow, has set a few pods and is still producing flowers. Its leaves look slightly yellowish but not as yellow as the epsom salts plant.
Plant #6. This one, with the low nitrogen "Tacre Hidro" is looking very promising. It has the best looking foliage of all and is growing very fast. It has overtaken the plants on epsom salts and calmag. Its still to set fruit as it was fertilized later than the rest, but its producing lots of flowers. I think this one will give miraclegro a run for its money.
So whats next?
YIELD! The plan is to weigh the harvest and tabulate the yield month per month, and throw a simple graph displaying how all the plant are stacking up to each other. Right now, #2 is clearly in the lead, but only time will tell how its productivity will behave in the long run.
Once I start harvesting, some very subjective and unscientific taste and heat tests will be performed. The pod where these seeds came from was a very hot pod, higher than the regular orange habs I had tried before.
Thanks for reading guys, next update in two or three weeks.
