Grow 4; Day 69 from seed; Day 28 of flowering:
Four weeks into flowering, and things are going well. The organic approach works. In my first three grows, by this point in the flowering cycle the plants didn't look this healthy and vibrant. They weren't sick or anything. They just didn't look as good as these.

Four flowering plants. Pictured below under the party lights, from left to right:
AK 47
Wonder Woman
Harlequin
Master Kush

Same plants without the makeup:

I expect the flowers to change a lot this month.

Odd bird update:
This Killing Fields seedling is quite unusual. She's also lucky to still be alive. Early this morning i was taking her out of the veg tent and i dropped her. (I have weak hands.) The pot bounced on the carpeted floor. Soil spilled out. The rooter containing the seedling completely dislodged. I didn't study her too much. I just decided that there's a chance if i can get her replanted. So i scooped the soil back into the pot. Placed the rooter with the seedling back in the middle, watered it in with humic acid. There was soil hanging from some roots that had emerged near the edge of the bottom of the rooter. I don't know how many roots tore off. But 12 hours later and she looks fine.

Saturday, Feb. 3; Day 15:

Day 16. This is 12 hours after her traumatic morning.

This is the most unusual cannabis seedling i have sprouted so far.

She's definitely an ugly duckling....reminds me of my Sannie Jack.

It is a weird looking one. I like those type in a way. They either make it and become tougher than others or never make it. I'm rough on plants. But I always give them a chance to make it if it's my fault. I have one now that I call the Survivor. I broke it in half a couple of times when it was a tender seedling. I just put more soil up around the stem to support it, and now it's ahead of her sister. Plants are fighters.

Best vibes bro. She'll be your favorite if she pulls through.

Killing Fields; day 23:
Killing Fields has been hanging on. Not growing like a healthy plant would be by this point. But she is still green, and still growing. Here she is next to a Cannatonic seedling, 9 days from dry seed.
Posted Image

Her fifth node is developing.
Posted Image

It feels like she may be building momentum. Today i gave her a dose of a compost tea with fish emulsion. Hopefully, this will give her a kick.

I can't tell what's ailing her. Have you tried bacteria/fungi? A good dose of some bacto and a little molasses in water might help. It almost looks like it's being starved a little. Maybe the uptake is suffering? The bacto will hep if so.

Best vibes with it. I always hang on to those too. I usually try and get them back, but not always successful.

It may just be genetic. Sure looks weird.

I felt like she was not gonna make it for a while. Today I'm thinking she may pick up some steam. Yeah, i agree. I feel like she was suffering from seed. She took eight days to actually pop her head above soil. She started out a little malformed. Perhaps the seed was weak and doomed from the start. But if she does pull through i wonder whether her leaves would get bigger. Or could she become a big plant covered with tiny leaves. In its current state, i doubt she would produce anything if she were put under 12/12 lighting. She's more than three weeks from seed, yet still barely bigger than a seedling.

That poor little thing looks rough!, ha If it doesn't take bacto and maybe a little kelp... I don't know. Not saying it won't ever, but it may not get any better.

Some seedlings/plants just come out defective, much like humans, I suppose.

Hang in there Gardener, it will be interesting to see if it grows out of it. My Sannie's Jack held small for quite a while also, then just exploded in growth. I think it was on node 4 or 5, then just started growing normal when I put it under 1000w MH.

I haven't been doing this long enough for the 'if you don't use it, you lose it' factor to not apply... I hope the little one pulls through.

KF can be pretty sensitive, I had one that didn't really want any nutes. I wonder if the humic acid watering didn't stress it some? Just a question, I can't remember shit anymore, especially now that I've been toking again lately lol

This Killing Fields plant holds a lot of fascination for me. Here are some closeups. This first one is from four days ago.
Posted Image

The rest are from today. I hooked up the digital microscope because i wanted to see the blotches in the leaf up close. There are spots where the leaves seem to have a blue tinge.
Posted Image

Nothing unhealthy. Just different.
Posted Image

Maybe not the best image.
Posted Image

The leaves are oddities, though.
Posted Image

Side buds. At some point i need to top her. But she still seems too delicate.
Posted Image

She is developing her sixth node.
Posted Image

Maybe FIMing would be better. Stop her from growing up. Force her to grow out.
Posted Image

This is still a very thin and pliable stem
Posted Image

Off with her head?
Posted Image

Or, should i wait another week?
Posted Image

Give her more time to establish herself.
Posted Image

What say you?

How long has it been since you potted it? I might take it out and look at the roots. Maybe something wrong with them. If they are brown and rotting, then you could ask new questions. I'm not familiar with root issues. Just that they happen.

Were rooting for it!

i would think a little longer before topping, but it's still on its 6th node, which means it should be fine. It may even cause it to start growing normal. Is it under strong light yet. If not, I would throw it under some and see what it does in a couple of days. I don't think I'd push nutes just yet. It may be "mature", but it's so small it shouldn't need much if at all.

Or...you can take cutting and have a killing bonsai garden..lol

Keep it going, this is interesting.

I 're-potted' KF about two weeks ago, just after i dropped her. I got a good look at her roots then. They weren't much to ogle. So, i don't believe she needs re-potting yet. Normally, i try to pot-up seedlings by the end of their fourth week. During my first run with auto flowers a year ago, some of the plants started showing nitrogen deficiency after four weeks in the pint-sized starter pots. In the case of Killing Fields, I may re-pot her into a one-gallon pot this weekend. Or, i may just leave her for another week where she is.

I was afraid it might have root rot or something. I might slip it out of it's pot just to look the the root health. If they're brown, not good. Best vibes. It looks like a grandpa in a kids body, heh.

Killing Fields day 29:
Potting up from the pint-sized starter pot to a 1 gallon intermediary.
Posted Image

I was pleased by the size of the root ball. She is finally growing with some vigor. The roots made it all the way to the bottom of that cone of soil.
Posted Image

She is beginning to resemble a normal cannabis plant.
Posted Image

She had at least seven nodes.
Posted Image

I want to see her bush out.
Posted Image
Posted Image

So i topped her above the fifth node.
Posted Image

Let's see what happens now.

here's to the underdog! :bier

Might water it in with some light nutrient or maybe after a week. It might be a good shock with transplanting and topping all at once. Just keep an eye on it.It sure looks odd. heh. Can't judge a book by it's cover, eh?!

Apparently KF can be finicky. I popped 2 beans and one sprouted fine, but the other hasn't done anything. This morning I noticed a root starting to poke out of the bottom of the jiffy pellet. This evening I saw where it is just pushing up on the soil and a hint of green. I think it's been about 9 days since I buried it. Never would have expected it to root like that before seeing daylight. So who knows, maybe the ones we have to baby and work for will be the true winners.

Good luck with that one and hope she is a blue dank beast.
