Okay so the girls are settling in to the 6L pots. Got a few pictures today so lots of posts coming.
Group shot, and I’ve measured them!
A – 8-9 Inches
B – 10 Inches
C – 12 Inches
Really impressed with the light spread on my new reflector, I haven’t rotated my pots religiously and they have grown straight as an arrow with good tight node spacing.18/04/2018 at 9:09 pm #5046
Plant A is very Indica and I love those big mop-like fingers, she is typically low and wide. I had to clear up growth under her to get access for watering the medium.

Leaf shot for Plant A, put a bit of paper behind to help the camera “see” better.18/04/2018 at 9:28 pm #5050
Plant B – bit bigger than A and grows more like a christmas tree shape, looks like a good hybrid with a lean towards the Indica. Big leaves, not quite as large as A!18/04/2018 at 9:31 pm #5052

Plant C, this one looks to just grow straight up! Great SoG candidate as the shape is similar to Plant B but the side branching isn’t as wide. The leaves are same wide as they are long so you get a nice star shape leaf.18/04/2018 at 9:38 pm #5056

Feed is per Litre
2ml Fish Mix
4ml Root Juice
4ml Acti Vera
4ml Alg a Mic
Plan is to switch to 12/12 in 2 weeks unless they really start going into overdrive, flower bulb is only 400w so not a big amount of penetration, might be more with the new reflector. So far the 250w MH is performing awesome in it.05/05/2018 at 3:51 pm #5821
2 weeks (and a day) later, I have got around to setting up my shiney new propagation tent. Unlike other tents I have this one got put together in 10mins, it has some helpful S-hooks and clips for tidying cables along the support poles. It only has a 48w Fluorescent unit (2 24w 2′ sylvania) but the size of the tent and revised lining has maximised the reflectivity, it’s so so bright I love it, definitely getting another as you can stack them, they take 10kg of weight.05/05/2018 at 4:00 pm #5824
I will give the ladies 24hrs of darkness and start 12/12.21/05/2018 at 7:00 pm #5919
Just a little bit over 14 days and the roots were coming through the peat pellets.
Plant C cuttings were the first to show roots at 10 days, Plant B cuttings were a couple of days after and Plant A cuttings were showing roots at 14 days.
I striked the cuts with Clonex gel as I wasn’t impressed with the B.A.C. stuff, it didn’t want to stick to the cuts, it was far too slimey.
I took 4 cuttings from each so that I could use 3 to flower out again and 1 to keep as a mother.
They’re all in plug pots now to root out before going into 0.75L which I can hopefully keep them going in until the mothers have flowered and dried.
3 still in the propagator as they were wilting worse than the rest, should be okay once they get comfy in the pots.21/05/2018 at 9:05 pm #5921
14 days of 12/12.
During the first 7 days we had a hot spell followed by cold wet weather and back to hot, this really messed up my watering as the plants first dried too much then when I soaked the pots the cold weather kept them too wet and the plants suffered from over watering.
Plant A was the most resistant and only has 1 affected leaf shown below.21/05/2018 at 9:12 pm #5925
