What's up Steem! What a crazy week. With @justinsunsteemit taking @ned's spot, there has been a lot going on. Very interesting times indeed. For those that know me, you would know that I am not a crypto guy, and when it comes to the technical aspects, I don't know shit! What I do know is, I love cannabis, and I love Steem. I am very optimistic, because my goal will stay the same, which is to contribute to growing the cannabis community of the Steem Block Chain. Whether it is Ned, or Justin at the wheel, I will still post, and spread the good word about this wonderful natural medicine.
All I am using in a broom closet
- Tap water that has sit for over 24 hours to let the chlorine dissipate
- Fox Farm Ocean Forest Soil
- Cheap China made LED
- Fan to circulate air
- Hanging bug trap to catch unwanted bugs
As you can see they look almost identical, except one is a tad shorter. Santa's Kandy is a cross of a Steem Og male, and Kandy Kush. It is a very rare strain, since only 9 where propagated. Out of those 9 I gave 4 away, and kept 5. Out of my 5 only 2 grew. You wont find this cross on Leafly. You ever wonder why there are so many strain names? Well because there are so many possibility's. All you need is a male and female cannabis plant, and then you can make a new strain. So of course somebody is going to give that new strain a name. Cannabis is a very complex plant. With the many terpenes it produces, the different aromas and tastes this plant produces are endless.
I am very happy with my results. But this is the easy part. All I have to do is keep an eye out for unwanted bugs, and just add water. The biggest mistake anybody can do this early on is over water, or over fertilize. Seedlings rarely need much fertilizer, and this Fox Farm has plenty of the goodness a plant needs. That's it for now, stay tuned, next update should, or at least I hope will be about my new tent and light. I have a cheap China made LED, which is dubbed a "blurple". These style lights have a lot of the blue and red spectrum, but plants need all of the colors in the light spectrum in order to thrive. You will see once I get my new light on what spectrum is good for cannabis. There is so much advancement in LED technology, it is amazing to see! I do have to say that this old style LED I have is working great for these seedlings, but that's as far I would say about this light. I did use these for flower once, and let me say they suck!
