Want to thank @Tracker and @Maddawger for all their help. Got a decent amount of seedlings going now, tbh too many for my spce lol, but im extremely happy. Germinated a total of 13 and 10 made it and are growing swell. They are all in fox farms happy frog soil and no nutes or supplements added. Sad story though, during germ of the first 10 i had them in a burpee seed starting tray and labeled which was which strain. I had a mishap and dropped it though and they all got mixed up. So now, aside from 3 bluberry/jack herer that i germed seperate, i have no idea which is which 😅😅😅. But I'll sort that out later on. Plan to upgrade my lighting asap and have seperated areas for veg and flowering finally. But anyway just wanted to post an update on progress and thanks to you guys again. Any advice for this grow is very welcomed as well.

Also wanted to include a picture of my auto. Strain is BCN Critical XXL from pevgrow. Not as big as it could have been but i feel its coming along well, all things considered.

On the ones I sent you, I ran the MLK4 and SKxLK females that made the seeds. I've been running the same MLK4 cut for a few years. Pics of the females are on my share/trade thread.

Since they are crossed with the (Z3x(WCxBM)) I have no idea what they'll do really. The reports I've had from people running them right now are good vigour and lots of variation in phenos. If they got mixed up, I don't think you'll be able to tell what's what.

Ah well, regardless what matters is thus far they seem happy and healthy. And i know to be much more careful next time 😂

Oh i forgot, a couple of these are genetics of @BrotherRandall too. A couple of space grape ripper in there but obviously since the accident i have no idea which they are lmao. So if anyone has pics of that strain in veg/flower it'll be a big help for me to try identifying them later
Grape Space Ripper = Grape Ape x (Jack The Ripper x White Gold)
This strain was originally bred and created by Geoff of HappyBirdSeeds.com

I selected the best females and I back crossed the two ladies to one of the original parenting strains: Jack The Ripper x *White Gold (Bred and created by Trevor out of Canada)
*White Gold = Himalayan Gold x White Widow

you might be able to identify the strain by the female flowers if you end up with ladies:
dominant fuel with mixed phenos that have a sweet undertone or sour undertones on the terpene profile for Grape Space Ripper...

Happy growing brother!

Update on the new babies. They seem to be doing well and are healthy. The 3 BB/JH were germed a few days after the rest and seem to not be behind at all. A couple had a stretching issue, dont know whether due to genetics or bad lighting but ive moved the lights closer and supported the stalks with added soil. Also im using the Fox Farms: Happy Frog soil with all of them rn if anyone is wondering. It has mycorrhiza already in it among other things it's amended with. But there are 2 seedlings that have some extra mycorrhiza i added into the soil just to see if it makes a difference. Also, they are all roughly 2 weeks since germination, do they look behind or fairly on track where they need to be?

But thanks for following my little diary and again any commenta, tips or criticisms are welcomed 😊

P.S- Yes there is a plant named Nemo. My wife thought its "gimpy" leaf was cute and decided that should be its name lol

Everything looks healthy.

What kind of light are you running in there? If the seedling got too stretchy like it was going to fall over, that's a light issue, not genetic.

Well there were 3 of them thay stretched a couple inches but they never seemed like they were going to fall over, in fact they seemed to be standing strong. But i added the extra soil to brace them just in case

But the lights are two 60watt china boards. Here's a link. But keep in mind these are super temporary and still an upgrade of what i had before. Dont have the money for a really good light setup so im pretty limited. But i plan to get something better before flowering if possible

As a rough estimate for LEDs..you want at least 35w/sqft. Some LED fixtures are significantly more efficient than others, as much as 30% difference. That means for two different fixtures using different components, you can have significantly different results. The 35w/sqft is just a WAG way to think about it.

The QB style boards have an intense bright spot directly under the board, and the intensity diminishes rapidly with respect to displacement as the position moves away from a point located directly under the center of the board. Since you must adjust the brightness according to the brightest point, the QB board style boards don't cover the canopy as well as bar-style LED's, which distribute the light across the canopy much better. So a 400w bar-style fixture will have a better result than a 400w QB-style fixture, especially around the perimeter area of the covered space.

Dont have room so gave a couple plants to a friend of mine but heres a little bit of a late update. Also not sure why my autoflower looks so pitiful rn. It looks like it has some deficiencies but it shouldnt and the buds havent really been fattening. Been in flower long enough that it should have already been ready for harvest but theres just new white pistils popping up everyday. Also is this a male "stick and ball" or is it possible its something else from when i fimmed it?

Regarding the last pic. Its hard to tell from that shot. It kind of has the shape of a male part, but the pic is not clear enough and the part is not well enough developed to tell. Anyway, if it looks concerning for you, just clip it off, and pay attention for any male parts popping out anywhere else.

On that auto, it definitely stressed.

What is been your feed/water schedule? What ppm/ec and pH? What are temps and RH?

Did you fix your light situation?

It definitely has a significant amount of time until harvest. What date did it start forming buds, not just a few pistils, but when did noticeable bud formation begin?

I'll give it a bit more time before for sure labeling it male but wanted to make sure im not the only one that thinks it might be lol. And sorry i dont have a better camera to get a clearer shot.

And my water/feed sheduale varies. Ive been feeding about every 2 weeks ish and water as needed. I may be underfeeding but idk tbh. After burning my first grow ive been paranoid with feedings. Temp is roughly 70-72°F

About the ppm and RH i dont know at the moment. The ph is 6.8

🤠That one looks like it needs water and newts like Iron leaves are drooping to much, i water my plants every 7 days with newts and i water them till they drain 6.8 is Fairley good try to get it down to 6.5 that is the best ph for growing. and i also spray my plants every other day with 6.5 tap water not real heavy though just a mist 70-72 is that your ground temp or the room temp. sorry just an old busy body here. but i do grow good weed here. if you haven't checked out my site please do 🧙‍♂️

Thats air temp, idk what ground temp is. And ive always heard its not good to water on a fixed scheduale so thats why ive taken to just doing it as needed. And iron may help. I dont think i even have any nutes to feed her iron
