Our mother plants arrive July 6th 2020.
The plants have recovered from their journey to Bucks County.
The plants are lit at night to help them create more vegetation.
The first clones cut from the mother plants.
The clones are domed to create humidity to help them sprout roots.
The clone table has lighting 24 hours to spur growth.
Looking at the underside you can see the roots sprouting from the clones. Time to plant these in soil.
The clones have a long way to go to get as big as the mother plants.
Once the clones mature they will be moved into this house for flowering.
Starting a new business has it's challenges!
So, we had to start over from scratch with new seeds from Oregon Hemp Genetics!
Planted the new seeds on November 2, 2020. Hoping they sprout!
Amazingly, the seeds germinated and sprouted in just 2 days!
By November 10th looks like we have 90 to 95% success rate on the seeds sprouting. Thank you Oregon Hemp Genetics!
Greenhouse #4 is just about complete on the retrofit for growing Hemp. Lights, irrigation and scrog system ready to go. Just need the seeds to grow now!
Starting the retrofit on Greenhouse #1 now. These steel framed benches have to be cut into pieces using a torch so they can be hauled away for metal salvage.
Around 5000lbs of angle iron has to be cut and removed from every greenhouse. It's hard, heavy and time consuming work.
Last bit of steel to cut and haul out. Then we have to clean, place the blocks, add lights, irrigation and scrog system and our second greenhouse will be ready just like #4. Only four more greenhouses left to retrofit.
As of November 2020, we have switched to growing more plants at a smaller size.
By January 2021, we will be taking clones from these plants that we grew from seed.
Lighting, humidity and nutrients help us grow healthy plants using organic methods.
We recently switched to fabric pots to allow the soil dry out faster.
Royal Triumph seedlings are doing well.
Taking a look at all the roots and it's time for these to be transplanted into the plastic cups.
Multiple stages together - seedlings in trays and seedling transplants vegging up before transplant into fabric pots.
Vegging these little guys out so they can move to the 2 gallon fabric pots.
The ones under the domes are the first clones we've taken from the seeds planted at the beginning of November 2020.
