Humble Cannabeginnings

in WeedCash Networklast month

Welcome to my indoor medicine garden, and thanks for following along! After 17 days my Steem OG seeds have become cute little seedlings. We're starting small, but we have big dreams!

As you can see, we're on to the second node of true leaves. These ones will be 3-fingered, as usual. The first were 1-fingered (aka "foxtails"), as usual.

I may top these young plants already, just above this current 3-fingered node. I don't think I've topped that early before, but I'm hoping to triple-top and achieve EIGHT flowers on each of these plants, so I better start low. Should be interesting!

As promised last time, I have thinned the remaining 6 sprouts down to 4 seedings, 1 in each pot.

All four are about the same size, and level of health. I see some mild deformities and discolourations on the leaves. This might be due to me forgetting to add some minerals to the water, after switching to distilled from tapwater recently. I have some epsom salts (magnesium) handy. Or it might just be something that straightens itself out as they grow. I've seen it before and sometimes the plants just outgrow it without any intervention.

Here's a closeup of the stem of one of the seedlings.

That's quite the furry shaft! I don't know what the hairs are for, but they're barely visible to the naked eye. Makes me wish I could shrink myself down and go for a safari in my cannabis plants. Maybe get stuck in a trichome full of cannabinoids, mmmm.

Come back soon to see if I can straighten out these 4 twisted sisters! Steem OG's strength is in the late vegetative and early flowering stage, in my experience. So the best is yet to come!

Grow in peace.

Plants are very cool indeed!

Oh that's right, I forgot that the hairs are called trichomes on tomato plants (which are from the same family as cannabis plants). Not all trichomes have heads full of cannabinoids, unfortunately! Haha. But yeah I think I've seen crawling insects try and climb up a cannabis stalk before, and have trouble with the hairs, because they're pointing downwards. They don't look like much to us but I think they stop a lot of tiny invaders.

Learn stuff everyday!

looking fresh 💪

They look very healthy to me bro,
Very nice job with your seedlings here.

I only have two right now, a bit not happy about it.. I might make a post later. It has messed with my motivation. I suppose I better get some seeds in the dirt really quickly. I've been neglecting it due to being pissed off about it.

I love the macros, you are very talented in this area, hairy shaft indeed lol.

Can't wait to see more! !LUV

Thanks for the feedback and the !LUV : D
I know what you mean. Sometimes expectations are not met. I try not to get frustrated with Nature... that's probably just how she works. Maybe those ones weren't meant to be. Maybe some different seeds will spring forth with vigor at the right moment. I think anytime before Halloween is still a great time for indoor germinating, as long as you don't mind hanging out with your trees over Christmas : ))

I believe those hairs turn to roots of buried. I’m going to google it.

Nice plants. I’m learning along the way myself
