All plants well & truly into flower except the late starter. All are pretty small except for the White Widow XXL on the CMH side. Some showing signs of nutrient deficiency with the yellowing off of lower shade leaves. Not sure if I should supplement with nutes or just top up and water in some more worm castings...

CMH side seems to be showing more vigorous growth, especially seen with the White Widow XXL strain, other strains are closer in size.

Critical Orange Punch officially DEAD. Not sure what happened there. Royal Cheese is looking the same but will give her a couple more days. COP has been replaced with Amnesia Auto, planted directly into soil, no soak or paper towel germination method. Will plant something else into Royal Cheese pot if nothing happens by Monday 25/02/19. White Widow on the 315 side is looking healthiest so far.

7/9 so far sprouted & above soil, Royal Cheese & Critical Orange Punch still just about to break through the soil. Still battling the last day of high summer temps but a cool change on the way. Gave the mulch layer and pot a light soak this morning, straight out of the tap

duckbutter Struggling a bit to keep temps low, a bit worried about the seedlings. I am going to stagger the lights a bit, start with the LED at 4:00pm and then turn the CMH on as the temp cools outside
