Well... [Oct. 22nd, 2005|04:20 pm]
Ganja Plant 2
Okay... so it's 3 days later, and so far none of the seeds have germinated. I'm not really sure why this is, but I'm beginning to suspect it might be that Heaven's Stairway sent me dud seeds.

Just for everybody's clarification, I am not the same person who did ganja_plant. As I mentioned, I created this journal as a tribute when the other one seemed to disappear. Just thought I'd let everybody know, because I'm a novice compared to that other guy.

Germination time! [Oct. 19th, 2005|05:27 pm]

All right, so this morning I took the 7 seeds out of the fridge and got them ready to germinate.



What I did was take a paper towel, cut it down to size a bit, soak it in bottled water, take it out and squeeze the excess water until it was moist but not dripping. Then, I laid it out, placed the seven seeds on one side, and folded over the other side. Carefully, I placed the folded up paper towel and seeds into a sandwich-sized ziploc baggy, blew some air in, and sealed. Afterwards I placed the bag at the back of a small cabinet in my garage. Ideally, you want a pretty warm place to store them while they're germinating, but I think what I have should be sufficient enough. Darkness, from what I understand, is a must.

In three days I am going to check them again, hopefully by then the majority of them will have a little white tail poking out, I'll then transfer them into soil. I'll update after I've done so. Stay tuned! :)

Hi everybody! Welcome to my grow journal! I'm sure you're anxious to see the plants get underway, I'll try not to disappoint you. :)

First, here are the details of my grow:

- Cinderella 99 (C99) seeds purchased off of Heaven's Stairway.

- Indoor (I live with two very open-minded parents, lucky me!)

- 250 Watt HPS Light purchased off of Inside Sun, just got here yesterday!

I've had the seeds for some time; first I tried germinating three of them unsuccessfully, ended up just tossing them all in small containers of 1/2 garden soil + 1/2 Miracle-gro potting soil outdoors, that didn't go very well:



Yeah, I planted marijuana and ended up with bean sprouts. :P

Anyway, I still have faith in the quality of the seeds (Heaven's Stairway was recommended on the prestigious overgrow.com) so tomorrow I'm going to try germinating the seven that are left and after a couple have sprouted, I'll transfer them into 12 oz. Dixie Cups with drainage holes and place them in this nifty cabinet I constructed:



It's actually just an opened cooler with my light + reflector placed in front of it, but hey, it gets sufficient ventilation and goddamn does that white color reflect the light well. As the plants grow bigger they'll get placed in bigger pots and eventually a bigger space, that's a bridge I'll burn when I come to it.

For now, I'm just letting my seven seeds chill in the refrigerator overnight, which is supposed to increase their germination rate. After that I'll fold them into a damp Kleenex, place it into a ziploc bag, blow in air, and seal. I'll place the bag in a warm, dark place (probably a cabinet in my garage) for about 3 days, and with any luck a couple of the seeds will be looking like this:



Like I said, from there I'll just plant 'em in the Dixie Cups with the tail pointing UPWARDS and it's on with the show!

That's about it for now, I'll update as soon as some of the seeds germinate. If you're an experienced grower and have something to offer, please do so, as this is my first time. :D

Again, thanks for watching everybody, I look forward to this.
