    Day 1 - Before topping at 2nd true node (sorry about the lights, I got excited)

    Day 7 - Pink hues all over the stems and stalk.. stalk is hardening at the base, turning wood-like.

    Will definitely keep you all posted. And thank you!

    Right now she is in a combo of FFOF, and Coco Loco (Coco only surrounding the new transplant area 1-2" in depth) and only getting 68 degree water, no nutrients. There was some slight burn from the initial transplant (used Mykos and prepared the soil well, but it still had a bit of a shock adjusting - she was delivered in the pouring snow), but she looks to be righting herself and getting better. This will be a 100% organic grow, with no liquid nutes added. Ive got a tea brewing for watering once I flip, which I am planning on in about 3 weeks if all goes as planned and the screen is starting to fill in. I have Fibromyalgia and some serious nerve damage from my combat wounds, so growing things as cleanly and easily as I possibly can is important.. sometimes getting to the grow room is genuinely difficult to do and its just a 20ft walk out my door.

    My Romulan girl is growing under a 600w LED light, in a 29"x29" tent. She has 2 sources of Co2 now, both organic (one that I made, and 1 Exhale bag). Since it is snowing outside right now, I use 2 heat lamps at the top on thermostats (non-light emitting) and a small fan to force the hot air down and around.. this keeps temps at a 68-72 at the lowest even when its 20 degrees outside. I have an exhaust system in place that is also on thermostat, pulling out the top. So far it does not turn on, even when 50-60 outside.. its aim is to keep temps under 80 at the highest. If and when it turns on, it also switches on a fresh air intake at the bottom. The action should, in theory, keep my tent fairly sealed most of the time (I used 1-way vents at each opening) and will still allow the Co2 to circulate even under the higher temps when it is on and keeping things cooled down.

    Its all fairly automated now. Rh is stable with no big spikes, from 30-40% with lights on to 35-45% with lights off (and this is just using my silica gel, not my dehuemy - Ill need that for sure in flower). Temp is always around 73 degrees, and lately the new growth is amazing. She is even getting a smell to her when I zip open the tent. I am very excited to see what she can do with her limited situation.. and I plan on getting some seeds from a cutting of this. The genetics here are just really, really good.. and its been literally 20+ years since Ive seen proper Romulan, so I do not want to let this one go.

    Quite frankly you dont.. at least until I try to fix that ;)

    In all honesty.. Ive searched high and low.. and almost nobody seems to have access to uncrossed Romulan these days. The person that gave me the cutting lives in the Emerald Triangle area and was so secretive about who he was it was not even funny.. I never met him in person. It all went through a 3rd party person, who did not know either of us that much. All I know is, the only reason I got one from him was, "He is a Marine.." those were his direct words, from what I was told.

    Weird stuff, because imo Romulan is one of the best strains out there. I cant figure out why anyone would let it slip away into the shadows?

    And here is an update pic from yesterday.. Day 8

    Reason I ask is I've been looking for 3 years, all of a sudden 2 popped up on the Single Seed Centre and I ordered them right away but they were not viable

    So I contacted the breeder Romulan Jay he told me he hasn't had the strain for 5 years so then I contacted Single Seed Centre and they had no explanation but they sent me some other beans to replace and that's why I asked cuz I like Romulan myself ..so send me some cuts LOL:mrgreen:

    Like I mentioned.. Im getting seeds from this cutting here. So once I have those.. Ill send you some. You just have to promise me one thing: You will spread this shit around like Johnny Apple Seed.

    Im like you.. Romulan is one of my favorites, and I am hoping that since I finally came across some, somehow I can play a part in bringing this baby back to the masses. :)

    I could always send a cutting, if you prefer that and are in the US.. Im sure it would survive in one of those little plant shippers with the lights?

    Im smoking on some beautiful Blackjack right now.. very fruity, and berry filled nose, and quality smoke. You'll love it, Im sure, if you've never tried it.

    Here is a pic of what I have now.. not much left though ;)

    That looks just... fucking inspiring to be honest. I hope my Romulan looks that good one day :)

    What kind of yields are you getting from your 3x3's.. looks like you're filling them up pretty well?
