Fall 2019 Marijuana Grow Log Week 3

My second attempt at legally growing marijuana indoors for personal use in Michigan is well under way.

As I outlined in prior posts, I tried various ways to germinate Northern Light XL, feminized seeds to find out the best way to germinate marijuana seeds. Through that, I currently have 5 plants growing.

In the past couple of weeks the seedlings seem to be doing pretty well in solo cups. Growing to the point that it is time to transplant into a larger container.

5 Northern Light XL seeds in Solo cups. About 2 weeks old. #3 and #5 plants are the weaker of the group. Other plants look happy and healthy.

To my eye, the plants look like they are about ready to be potted in the container they will be in until harvest. I went ahead and transplanted into 5 gallon fabric pots. Standard coco coir and vermiculite mix growing medium.

Since this is the only transplanting I will do, now is a time to check out the roots of the seedlings to see if there are any signs of rot or discoloration to alert to any root problems.

With the roots looking good, I went ahead and repotted in the 5 gallon fabric pots.

Ready to start growing strong!

I am still feeding the plants as if they were seedlings. Light application of nutrients until they get established in the new containers. After a week or so I will start with heavy vegetation level of nutrients to really jump start growth.

These baby girls are ready to grow up strong and productive.

I need to decide what I am going to do with these plants. Right now I am thinking to try different trimming and training techniques with each plant to see which approach works best. Still thinking on it.
