    well, I am almost ready to give my skunk some ferts and a new home, the pineapple chunk is having a rough time, the first seed I germinated never popped, this is the second seed I germed and it is really weak, it took a week to pop, and is struggling to get a foot hold. It has been two days since I put it in it's pot and it is just starting to open its baby leaves.

    Hopefully with some more nurturing it will come around, I really want to try it out down the line. I am pretty disappointed with the Barneys farm strains that I have tried, very poor germination rates IMO

    The only Barney's farm I had both petered out pretty quick but I wasn't as attentive back then. I had other strains under the same stresses but the bf's didn't hold up

    Alrighty guys a picture update for you all....

    so the skunk has just started to take off, roots have made it to the bottom of the bucket, so things should start moving pretty quick now. I'll be topping this little lady and promoting off shoots . she's gonna be a big ol' mother.. I have my nutes at 1100 ppm, and a ph a steady 5.8 under 1 600 watt.

    and this stupid pineapple chunk is just creeping along, does not want to do anything, the root development is poor, I'm gonna add 200 ppm clonex to it and see if it helps move things along.

    Weekly update time again!

    Well this lady is talking off. My timer broke, so I have had to use my cycle timer. It is getting watered every 8 hours, which is a bit more than I would like. I'll try to get out tomorrow and get a new timer.

    Anywho, tonight she will get tied down and FIMMED, after the lower branches turn to cola's the same method will be applied to them. nothing has changed as far as nutes and ph.

    The pineapple chunk has started to get it's ass moving finally. root system is still a bit week, but new growth has exploded and the leaves are greening up nicely. looks like she is gonna make it just fine. I have it on 500 ppm of clonex now. ph at 5.6

    Thanks Pen, boy is she ever behind.lol, but I was pressed to get it to go, I handed off two seeds to a friend, and when I went to collect this one from the package, It was the only one left, turns out the stuffing I had in the packaging came out and the other 2 seeds are mixed in a drawer with about 1000 k2 seeds.. I'll never find them again...haha

    Weekly update yall

    I tied the skunk down and fimmed it after cloning, the lower branches are creeping up nicely and the cola is starting to separate into two offshoots.

    The pineapple is coming along nicely now, it got transplanted the same night as the skunk got tied down, a few more days and it should really get moving.

    The clones taken on the 25th are struggling a bit, but they will be fine in the long run. humidity has bee really low as have been the temps. Two of them have already got some roots, and the rest wont be far behind.

    And just for shits and giggles here are some pe tubs that just started popping.

    I am really digging the new features on the site, for those that don't know, As I just figured out, if you double click on your pictures a window pops up where you can change the size of them . too cool

    Sure El I looped a piece of twine and wrapped it at the base of the plant, pulled the string under the pot, and tied it off 2 nodes under the top of the plant. you don't want to tie it right at the top, as it is not as strong as a bit further down.AS another note, I also move the string every few days so that the expanding trunk does not grow around the string, sort of like how you seee trees sometimes encompass fences that they are growing up against.

    Yea, Don't girdle her. Tie a bowline knot leaving some slack and thicker rather than thin line.

    When the plants are larger I use this stretchy stuff.
