Today the clones were moved out of the grow tent and into their own space. It is time for the ladies to be switched to a 12/12 light schedule!
Clone Update For @psyceratopsb
The clone post was 5 days ago. They are 8 days into cloning today. They are all still alive but I don't think they have rooted yet.
The reason why I don't think they have cloned yet is because I also have a few cuttings in a mild nutrient solution(not Perlite) and they are still not showing any roots.
Now mind you I am very new to cloning but I think it is a good sign they are still alive.
The area where I have the grow tent has been moved around quite a bit with many things going to the storage unit to make room for the grow tent, future veg tent, and my supplies. Under the supplies is where the clones will be moved until I can get another light and tent.
It wasn't a hard move for the clones. I had to put up a hangar and the 45W Led under the desk. The heating pad was placed under the clones to help with heat.
I think the light will be ok for about a week. I may or may not stop at the hardware store to pick up an led grow bulb to get the clones through to Friday when I can afford the veg tent and light(I have not decided on lighting in the veg tent).
I didn't do many updates on the stress training I have been doing on the plants. I didn't lollipop as extreme as I usually do because I have a huge empty space in the middle of the tent where the nutrient bucket is. I want to get some of the healthy lower stems to grow towards the center of the room and I think they will get enough light to not be popcorn buds. I don't know how successful this will be but I won't know unless I try:-)...(the red arrows are bends in the stems).
The main reason I am switching over to 12/12 now. Sugar Mama(Black Sugar Strain) is two feet tall. I am worried about the height of the light needed for Sugar Mama compared to the other two plants. I have been training the top to go towards the center of the room and if she was straightened vertically then she would reach the two foot mark.
The Steem Og's are not fems like the Black Sugar and grow lower and bushier because of the Indica. I am however very happy about their progress. I just need to turn this over to 12/12 because if the Black Sugar keeps up its pace...then the light is going to be too far away from the Steem OG's. I may even have to buy an LED to supplement the Steem Og's because of the height difference when flowering goes into full affect. It's nice to learn about different strains!
The above picture is of two plants but I wanted to show how much Moody Miranda(front) has caught up to Bigfoot(both Steem OG strain). Bigfoot went through a heavy case of a FIM and a Top after the FIM so she has been a little stressed but oh...those nodes she has coming out of the top.
So, this is the big day.
Switching over to 12/12 and now in a mad dash to keep the clones alive.
