LPC + GDP Cuttings

October 2020

Four cuttings, two of each strain. Rooted with Clonex for 13 days in rockwool under plastic jug humidity domes. Potted in drained solo cups w/Fox Farms Ocean Forest potting soil.

LPC #1 continues its growth rate.

LPC clone absolutely EXPLODED with new growth after a few rounds of fertilizer.

LPC #1 is now growing at ludicrous speed, after I finally broke down and fertilized her properly. 😂

Finally got some color back into those top leaves! LPC #1 is finally showing some vigorous new growth in the lowers, accompanied by a dark green flush of the leaves after what I can only presume was a nitrogen deficiency.

keithlovesrach I used ocean forest mixed with happy frog to cut it a little and I still felt it stunted the growth in the seedling/ early veg stage. I equate it to the hot ocean forest soil. A friend of mine used it too and had extremely stunted growth as well. Not sure what it takes to grow in that soil but I’ll never use it again.

DoctorCarbon I’ve only had experience with FFOF so far, and while it hasn’t been stellar, I feel like most of the problems I had were due to overfertilizing at the beginning of my grow. It’s pretty easy to do, as anything above the LOWER limit on the PPM range the Fox Farms Trio gives you burned the tips on my plants. I’ve been pretty reliably shooting for ~150 PPM below the lower limit, and this seems to work well without burning. As for the soil itself, this clone was nearly bleach white at the top for a solid two weeks before I fertilized twice. While it’s a clone, and they’re essentially deficient as soon as they begin rooting, that leads me to believe the soil itself isn’t TOO hot or this deficiency would have resolved itself.

keithlovesrach I feel you. Happy growing!

Slow going for LPC clone #1, but she’s still very much alive and well! Only been fertilized once, transplanted roughly a week ago for the second time into a 1 gallon fabric pot. She’s been confined to the new veg tent with the seedlings (seven of them) and other clones (total of five), under 70% light. No new wilting, she has been developing a healthy root mass as of the transplant. Every week or so, the lower nodes can be observed putting off tiny new growth - even the lowest node joined in! Sadly, GDP clones 1 and 2 both died very rapidly after the first transplant. Oddly enough, the root mass was still completely white and moist on one of these clones, despite the stalk being mostly withered - repotted this root mass in a nursery bag to see if it would produce any new growth.

Repotted surviving clones after root structure on each began to peek through drainage holes in solo cups. Fox Farms Ocean Forest soil; fertilized once with Fox Farms trio relative to schedule.

mystrain420 _@eaegifts Should mist them a few times a day so they adjust or run a humidifier if the wilting persists 👍🏾

DoctorCarbon Wilting has actually stayed almost exactly the same since about day 14 in the humidity dome - I’m guessing those leaves just had the nitrogen sucked out of them to make roots. The new growth doesn’t show much yellowing, if any

Day: 4

Clones displaying moderate burn after applying pesticide; however, plants are still standing strong and displaying new growth. Defoliated leaves that easily pulled off. Smaller LPC clone failed to take.

combatmedic81 I would cut off those yellow leaves, let the new growth begin

DoctorCarbon

DoctorCarbon Took all of them off that I could without cutting, just because I don’t want to take a strongly attached leaf and cause more shock than necessary

dcochrane34 I found that white cups let the light through and dry out the soil very fast. I had an issue with seedlings that looks very similar to the issue you’re having. To fix this problem I duck taped the cup sides. The plants rebounded well. Best of luck!

Day: 2

Moved smaller LPC clone back into humidity dome after moderate wilting.

bigsammy Looking good

DoctorCarbon

DoctorCarbon Many thanks man 👍🏻 smaller one doesn’t seem to be getting better though. Stem is still stiff, leaves are droopy. Possibly overwatering/root rot?
