Even now my crap phone camera is picking up that purpling in the base of the leaf growth. Soil seems to be holding on to the water better now that it has all been saturated through once, hopefully that means the roots are really taking to the mykos and developing under there. These plants are from 0.5in-2in. In height and with the breeze are getting nice and strong.

Doing great, barely getting their second set of leaves and starting to pop out the third. My camera sucks but their there I swear. Really developing densely which is what I am aiming for, this light really is kicking ass! Haven’t given up finishing the homemade LEDs, just put on the back burner for a second.

These are just the easiest plants to grow! These W.R. X have done great so far under the weird lighting situation, and now under these lights are really doing great. All staying 1.5in or shorter for now and already are showing some deep purpling on the inside of the leaves, hoping that manifests more during their development. Second leaves have developed enough to consider it officially week 1 of veg.

Finally they are all home under the new light. Have to stint a couple plants but have a fan blowing nicely on them to strengthen themselves up a bit. Not much change in height which is a good thing.

Still staying low, the W.R. seem to be looking great, getting much stronger stems than other strains, this plant definitely has proven to be the least temperamental strain I have growing so far. Doing everything I want it to, stay low and starting on that second node low as well. Some have gotten taller but still around 1-3”. The box still isn’t done at my place but I have the lighting issue fixed so all these babies are coming home!

Sometimes you just need to accept defeat. The lighting and everything just was not working out in my box, need to work on my electrician skills. In the mean time I needed to get the plants back under some decent lighting. Fortunately my brother was willing to “plant sit” for me while I got things more under control in my space. Some of the other strains have really stretched out but these W.R. Plants have really hugged the dirt more and seem to actually be the healthiest. 1”-2” in height. RH has gone down quite a bit in my brothers space and temps are a bit colder but still well in good range for growth.

Well what can I say... sometimes homemade doesn’t work on the first go. The LED burnt out the powersupply somehow, in the meantime I have them under the small seed lights while I try and figure this out. In the meantime though the plants haven’t stretched much, these White Russians are really sticking low to the dirt which is what I want for this small grow box.

Not good lighting for pictures, but great for growing! Slow and low aging, I’ve gotten them to stop stretching so much now that I’ve put them under the homemade led grow light. These White Rs are the easiest to spot in my grow box due to these soft thick leaves. Plants are now just under an in. Keeping the humidity around 50-55% and temp is kept around 23’C. Changed my watering now from a misting several times a day to a full water and dry.

Already a bit stretched from dropping the head to the base of the dirt. Seem to be taking transplanting well and growing strong. Keeping humidity up still, temps 23’C and getting them under some blue:red spectrum leds soon.

Plants looking strong and are stretched out a couple inches. Transplanted to red solo cups by cutting out each egg-carton square and placing on a bed of dirt with Extreme’s “mykos” sprinkled in the base of the dirt.

Day: 6


Was given 6 old seeds from a local breeder who did not use the strain anymore. The seeds were several years old, but still popped nicely and now showing some nice roots. Planting in cardboard egg carton and putting in seed dome for sprouting.
