The Little Seed That Could

in WeedCash Network6 months ago

I'm growing a cannabis plant from seed to flower in a bucket, with a few gallons of dirt, and nothing but plain water! I'll show you that cannabis plants need nothing more than earthworm castings (worm poop) and good technique to produce high-quality medicine. Every step of the way documented on the blockchain. One shot, one take, no going back! Can I do it? What yield will I get? Watch me and find out!

Check out my previous post here, where I showed what this sprout looked like a week ago:

This is like starting a fire with only one match, except that I'm doing it with an audience, in order to prove a point! Pressure's on!

So far so good. Decent colour, nice shape, seems healthy, still pretty small. Hopefully the roots dig deep into the bucket, and like what they find. I'll water more deeply as time goes by.

I have 10 other Reclining Buddha plants, all having germinated within about a week of each other, coming up in cups:

A few are leggy and leaning. Not sure what that's about. I don't think the stems are damping off. Maybe it's because my fan wasn't working for several days, and they didn't get airflow to strengthen the stems.

I've lowered the lights a bit to see if that helps.

"Feed me, Seymour!" Bonus points for you if you remember that reference.

A twisted sister! I get wonky leaves like that sometimes early on, but after a few nodes things usually straighten right out.

See you in a few days for an update on these 10 youngsters, and my 200% organic bucket challenge!

It sure looks good so far! Hopefully it spreads out and fills in over the next week.

Hopefully it's a girl! Males are great but in this case weed really like a girl ;D

Nice, they look good. What light do you use?

Same 2 tubes and 2 bulbs mentioned here.

Still looking for a good LED board (or 2) that would be perfect for my 4-6 plant setup, which I can get locally or have shipped here, keeping in mind my lack of bank account and smart device. The local shops I've found so far don't carry LED.

Cash out a few hive? A nice quantum board goes a long way.
I am not sure local shops around here only push hps

It would be nice to spend HIVE, but I don't know anyone accepting it, and I don't have any way to convert it. That's why I still have ever HIVE I ever earned (in 4 years).
What's quantum, a brand name, or a style?

looks very good

So by plain water are we talking tap water?

Yeah tap water, or creek water, or rain water, or distilled/purified water if you want (but that's probably not ideal in this situation). pH-adjusted water is fine.
Myself, I've found the tap water here is about the right pH, and it has some calmag naturally, with some trace minerals. I don't like it for drinking, but after 24 hours sitting at room temp, the plant seem to :)
How's your tap water there?

Not the greatest. I live in an agricultural area. I use RO water, but have to make sure I add a cal mag to it, since RO does not have the goodies.

Nicely 😉
