Moving up from sprouting to vegetative growth
As we move from sproutling to full fledged plant things really start to accelerate... I have started to introduce fertilizer every other watering, though a small amount compared to what I would feed a larger more established cannabis plant. With two batches growing, spread out by about a week we have three plants at this point. No idea if they are male or female right now, but should know soon for the bigger ones.
It has now been over a month since germination, and most of them are forming nice leaves and thick stems. Every day they look like they are getting bigger, and I am now seeing lots of growth. I added a fan that moves air around in the room, and that helps to promote strong stems when a slight air current is moving them.
Hopefully soon I will be able to tell the sex of the plants and decide what to do with them. But at the moment I cannot tell... maybe a few more weeks.
One of my plants had a weird deformity on one of the leaves, will see if it stays that way and heals itself.. Not affecting the plant it seems just a weird spot.
This is the first one I started, though I did not provide it with enough humidity so its a little undersized right now.
One of the 2nd batch sproutlings stopped growing once I transplanted it, for about a week it did nothing. But now it has some new growth, seems to be growing two branches outward.. quite strange.. Maybe this is related to old seeds?
I will leave it and see if it fully recovers, though it is tiny compared to the other two more established cannabis plants.
Lastly, this one is doing great! Funny how that works, as when I transplanted this from its seed container to its full pot I broke some roots off. I thought it was going to go into shock, but it did not! Just got bigger and has now outgrown batch 1.
Its leaf sets are quite large, and seems very happy with its humid 1000w MH setup.
No idea of the sex of this one as well, not yet at least. There is about a half and half chance of getting a male or female. Since these are probably not feminized seeds its a toss up.
Glad the stems are strong, that fan really helped it bulk up its structure. Seems they also like the light position now, I had it a little too close previously and caused some purple color to form. But since moving it back a few inches seems they are happy. They are not stretching much, nor are they showing signs of heat stress.
So for now I will keep watering them every few days with fertilizer feedings every other watering. Using foxfarm for the feeding, big grow right now but will use tiger bloom when its time to flower.
The grow tent has worked out great, the AC infinity brand seems to make good stuff.. I have their fans as well. Using their clip on fan in the grow room, and two inline fans for the light and tent intake air.
Something special about growing my own cannabis, been so long but glad to be back. I love growing plants, as many of yall know... but something extra special about growing entheogens. Cannot wait to enjoy the nugs from these when it comes time. At this point it will be sometime next year.
Now that we are in the vegetative cycle, I will wait around a month to see how tall they get and then induce flowering by changing the light spectrum and light hours. But for now they will keep growing more leaves and get nice and strong to support some large buds a few months from now.
Super excited to see how these runs out. Good stuff out there and you'll be fine but good luck anyway 👍
Me too, so far so good.
Greetings, how elegant the grow cabinet fascinates me, and the plant looks a good growth.
It sure is, my most advanced grow yet!
Every day they get bigger
You are really taking a good care of them.They look very healthy. When got to learn about their sex, let us know.😂 All the best with your gardening.
Thank you, hah okay will do... appreicated.
The bigger ones are looking top notch! As far as that funky one, it may be it is just a dud. It happens. Maybe just focus on the others, and cull it. I imagine those bigger ones should show sex soon :)
Yeah the two are great, we shall see how the little one works out.
Its been struggling, gnats went after it. But I gave it a neem soak and seem to have stopped it.. I guess when they are weak stuff like insects and mold tries to take over.. I wont let them :-)
If you ever get in ti breeding, runts are normal and are expressions of bad genes in the purebred family. Most strains these days are crossed so many times that they've gone back to their land-race genetics and show all kinds of funky things. I've seen double chromosome buds, hermaphrodites of course are another defect, usually from breeding a hermi'd female with a male permanently soiling the gene diversity of that line. The simple rules go; cull the runts, save the males and stick 'em outside in the elements. Abuse the females a little bit by breaking branches here and there, also oxygenate the soil by pouring high and not over-tending the earth around it by packing the soil and making it too flat/even. This keeps root mold at bay and keeps airflow at the roots like it would in the wilderness. Flower the females, smoke the buds and breed the best female with the most vigorous male that could handle the outside elements. You get 5-star strains this way.
By the way neem oil is harsh as fuck to smoke not gonna lie, have you looked in to natural fungicides using citrus? It doesn't leave a waxy coating on your buds when they flower (that stuff never completely gets off after flushing)

More than a month from germination, and most of your plants are already forming beautiful leaves and thick stems, that is to say, soon we will have your plantations more grown and observing all your effort and hard work, but it is worth it. That's life on the farm, a lot of initial efforts and then the good rewards come. May you have many successes @solominer I wish you from Venezuela and to continue caring for your plantations for a safe and promising future.
Yes I am amazed how quickly they are growing. The stems are thick because I have a fan blowing air on them.. moving them making them stronger.
So true, all this work will indeed pay off.
Thank you for the nice comments
Thus it is estimated, working agriculture in agriculture and livestock, the results are extraordinary and very beneficial, for physical and mental health. successes
Dude, I knew you'd be great at this. You put in a lot of work and it pays off. And your little cannabis paid off even though you broke it. I hope the rest will be great.
Thanks man, yeah doing gardening for many years has given me a head start. And since I used to grow cannabis on the west coast growing again feels good.
Hehe yeah the little one is having some troubles but its fighting for its life.. Hope it makes it and turns out to be the most dank :-)

Great plants bro, tiny and powerful at the same time. In my case i have to wait 1 month to have a plant with so much branchs.
Thanks man yeah they are short but stout.
Hah I was talking with my friend that has done outdoor grows.. he was saying the same thing. Seems indoor grows much faster, when you have the right setup.
best of luck with your transplant.
fantastic, Keep up the good work and with time you'll be able to tell the sex soon. I'm looking forward to seeing more of your work.👍
Thanks, yep soon enough I will be able to tell.. I want females because of their buds.
Oh, that's nice, I'm sure you get what you wish for. Hope your day is going fine.
Great post man, as for AC Infinity I use their Exhaust system and thier 3gall bags. Actually found 1 gallon black nursery bags at local grow shop. like 50 for 8 bux
Ah nice, I used to grow in 5 gallon buckets but I saw the roots would reach the bottom and grow out the drilled drained holes. So this time I went with something a little bigger.
Hope your three gallon bags work, I grew mine really tall so maybe short ones will work with those well.
Awesome looking start for healthy good tasting buds.
