Hi everyone, first post here. New indoor coco grower, Sth Gippsland Vic.

4 resends? :shock: Holy shit. I'm new to the field, and already had my first batch from Herbies intercepted on their way to me. Currently awaiting resend 1 to hit the shores and prey it'll move through the distribution centre this time.

Anyway, I found a place in Qld shipping seeds throughout oz. GC Australia. Sold for "Souvenir and display purposes only" Lol There are only about 10 options, (fems, no autos) but so far so good. Came quick, 5 seeds loose in a ziplock, handwritten label stuck on the bag, "Gelato" no breeders packaging or any idea of who's bred them. But all in a padded envelope, labeled "Caution, printer stickers inside, fragile" Lol.

All 5 germed and 4 are growing well. I moved 1 on. 1 out of the 4 left now looks a slightly different leaf shape than the others but this is my first grow so very inexperienced and they're only a week old so not much leaf to compare yet.

I wont lie I'm a bit nervous that they might turn out to be just random regular shit seeds, but the website seems all legit, Not cheap at $85 for 5 inc shipping, but they all cracked out of their seed after 12 hours of a soak and another12 in the paper towel. I'm more than happy to pay a bit more knowing I'll actually get them and within about a week.

cheers,

I've used Dutch master potash before it's good stuff and for $7 that's a bargain.
No Dutch master stuff at any bunnings near me unfortunately. Had to buy mine from hydro shop.

its was like they had just stacked a full shelf of it, and then put the $7 clearance sign, so i went in three times on different days and grabbed a few A n B of both the grow and flower and a potash or two, the last time i noticed some other bloke had started hammering it as well i could only get a grow and a potash

are you sposed to use the potash as soon as you start flowering or vegging as well?

Potassium Needs During Early Stage

It is best not to feed seedlings and cuttings, as a lack of nutrients in the first 2–3 weeks of growth promotes the development of healthy roots. Wait until your plant has reached a height of 15cm before feeding. You can then start giving 25–50% of the recommended dose. Gradually increase to a full dose as your plant enters the vegetative phase.

Potassium Needs During Vegetative Stage

At about week 4, your cannabis plant has left the seedling stage and is now officially in the vegetative growth stage. At this point, your plant will require high levels of nitrogen along with other essential nutrients in appropriate amounts. When feeding commercial cannabis nutrients, stick to the recommended dose.

Potassium Needs During Pre-Flowering Stage

Right before your cannabis enters the flowering stage, it will undergo a short pre-flowering period that will last for 1–2 weeks. The pre-flowering phase is like vegetative growth on steroids: Some cannabis plants will stretch considerably, sometimes two or three times their current height. To support the plant during this time of vigorous growth, you'll want to provide extra levels of nitrogen, potassium, and calcium.

Potassium Needs During Flowering Stage

During flowering, your cannabis plant will require extra potassium. You will normally increase potassium levels at the same time, or right after, increasing phosphorus and decreasing nitrogen at the end of pre-flowering when the plant has stopped growing. From there on out, the plant will be entirely focused on bud production. Extra phosphorus and potassium will now be important as these minerals play an important role in bud size, flavour, and overall development.

Trying to cycle them in this tent, got clones off the veg plants, by the time they're rooted and ready the current ones should be a few weeks into flower, rinse and repeat.

The wait between clean runs from start to finish has been getting to me, smoking way too much trim as I get closer to the next one
How are you going doing SOG? I'm not sure if mine is normal or not. Doing 16 x 300mm pots jammed in tight in a 4 x 4 tent. Under a Viparspectra xs4000 I'm roughly getting about 90-100grams per plant. Some are really good and some aren't. So this is what I'm figuring out to be my average yield. Have 4 cheese 4 lemon haze 4 expert haze and 4 GSC in. They all seem to want to finish at different times. But not one strain finishing together. One or 2 of each will power on and mature faster for no reason. Has me stumped. I think at an average of 160 grams per week isn't bad.

Sounds the go, 160g per week would be a dream! I have been cutting down a plant every 2-3 weeks lately, some are 10-12 week finishers this time! I don't run a trellis net or screen, used to, but I like getting the plants out for defol and I rotate the pots in the tents almost daily to make sure all sides of the plant get good light. I top and mainline the plants so each plant gets 12 main colas or more, only working with a pissy 2x5ft space for now, but it keeps me and a couple good mates high for fuck all through the year.

If I can get 2oz per plant I'd be happy, got 23 fems in flower at the moment haha
 
5 seeds from a dodgy illegal Australian bedroom for $85?
$75 for 5 and $10 shipping is nothing when I actually got them and are now in the game. And in about a week, rather than the previous 5 weeks wait, lose the customs gamble and begin the fuck around re-send process again which is currently 3 weeks deep and not even in Aus yet FFS.

As for the sellers rep time will tell I suppose. A very knowledgeable and helpful Canadian. So far they're growing! No growing experience to compare or diagnose anything let alone genetics.

But... the one on the front left looks a bit different. Darker, finer, slightly bigger. That first single jagged leaf is looking a bit suss on them. Curling up a bit. NFI

They look fine. I'm guessing that is something spilt on the leaves and not damage?

But you over paid for seeds.
