FLOWER STARTED JANUARY 26th 2018 Welcome Welcome! Come one come all... Tasmanian Skunk? What is it? I don't know. Perhaps a distant ISS relative..... Cherry Cordial OG? That's easy... Hells OG x Space Dude (Male Space Queen) Why is it called Cherry Cordial OG? Space Queen is C99 and Romulan. The most coveted C99 Pheno puts off Cherry taste/aroma/smell/etc. That's what we are trying to isolate here. The following links tell you more.. https://www.leafly.com/hybrid/space-queen "The most sought after of these is a large, resinous, high yielding plant that smells of apples, vanilla and cherries, and has a delicious cherry taste when properly cured." I'm going to open this journal up with the VEG cycle complete. From there we will follow the flower cycle and I will make frequent posts through harvest and cure. Introduction I have received a handful of TGA testers from Sub. I have never grown his gear before and I am excited to get started. I have grown some relatives of these strains in the past but I have never even heard of these two. I got banned at IC. I decided to port my existing journal over here from there. For RIU and our community II will update this journal with new content as the flower cycle continues...I use this micro grow in a small tent to test strains. It is not too impressive, but I think everyone will enjoy seeing the plants progress. Thank you for letting me join your community and share. I welcome all comments and questions in the journal. Let me know what you think..The Cherry Cordial OG arrived in limited supply with only a few seeds and only 1 female of the entire pack actually making it in the long run.... Please read below and enjoy the video and pictures. Equipment 300w equiv. Mars Hydro Clone LED multispectrum with IR. Real power draw ~ 100w. 1 t5 tube and 2 CFL side lighting. 1 fan for circulation. 1 scrubber filter on exhaust with 2 inline 6" fans. Intake is passive with a tent opening opposite the exhaust. AgroMax grow tent. Solo cups and 3 Gallon pots. DynaGro Grow complete liquid nutrient. Germination and Veg Grow Notes 3 Cherry Cordial OG and 4 Tasmanian Skunk seeds were germinated in a shotglass of water. Germination rate was 100%. Sprouted seeds were placed in solo cups with 50/50 peat moss and medium size perlite. All 7 plants came up. Lights are 18/6. As you can see in the photos, one of the Tasmanian Skunk was smaller than the 3. Also, one of the Tasmanian Skunk mutated. Plants were transplanted twice. All 7 plants showed sex at 30 days. The males were discarded. I was left with 1 female Cherry Cordial OG and 2 female Tasmanian Skunk. Clones were taken using rooting gel and rockwool cubes. The Cherry Cordial OG clone showed the most vigor. All 3 are rooted and transplanted into 3 gallons with 50/50 peat moss and medium size perlite. Of the 2 Tasmanian Skunk, there may possibly be 2 different phenotypes. 1 has wider leaf blades than the other. All plants in solo cups were fed 400-500ppm DynaGro Grow. All plants in 3 gallons were fed 600-800ppm DynaGro Grow at ph7. Plants were watered once every 3 to 4 days when pots were dry and light. Runoff test is ph 6 with mininum buildup. Temps inside the house were between 60f and 80f. Temps inside the tent averaged 5 to 10 degreed warmer than house temp. Humidity is 20-30% on average. Light was kept within 3 to 4 inches of the canopy. All 3 females show first 5 and then 7 and now 9 blade leaves. Plants were topped at different times. Slight pruning of bottom foliage when transplanted. More details can be seen in the photographs. No pests. No mold. No mildew. No foliar sprays. No pesticides used. No beneficial organisms/fungi/bacteria added to the media. All 3 are flipped over into 12/12 flower cycle. A final update will follow. Ask any questions. Time Lapse Videos from my Vimeo account. 30 days in 60 seconds medium resolution 30 days in 30 seconds lower resolution Time Lapse Video GIFS 0-20 days 21-40 days 41-60 days Now let's post some high res. photos in chronological order from the veg cycle... This is an empty tent picture so you guys can get an idea for the ventilation. This is my nute line up and my pens The seedling are sitting happily in their solo cups of peat moss and perlite 50/50. Tasmanian Skunk Below Cherry Cordial OG below Starting to grow up. They have been feeding regularly. You can see a couple mutations in one of the Tasmanian Skunk... I ended up killing this off as a male later anyway... Tasmanian Skunk below Cherry Cordial OG below Time to Transplant from solo cups into 3 gallons full of the same 50/50 peat moss perlite mix. All roots looked great as you can see.. Big Update.. Plants showed sex after 30 days and these are the females.. 2 Tasmanian Skunk and 1 Cherry Cordial OG Clones were taken and put in rockwool cubes. As you can read above in the report, the Cherry Cordial OG was most receptive to cloning although all 3 rooted in a week or less.
