el/wool must be kept moist at all times. If the material
dries out it may damage the seeds. Everyday check to see if the seeds
have started to produce any roots. If they have then immediately
transfer the seedling to a grow medium (such as soil) using a pair of
tweezers. Do not touch the root. This has a moderate to high success
rate. Out of 10 seeds 8 - 9 may germinate. The problem with this
method is that sometimes the transplant can cause the seedling to go
into shock. This can kill the germination process leaving you with
nothing. With practice you can get all your seeds to germinate.
This is a method whereby the seeds are placed in small unit,
called a seed or clone propagator, which is designed to help plants
germinate. One such kit is called a rockwool SBS Propagation Tray.
Some of these kits can be heated and look like a miniature greenhouse.
At the bottom of the tray is a small area where water, or even better
‘some germination hormone’ is poured. Small grow cubes called
rockwool cubes are placed into slots in the tray, which automatically
dips the rockwool into the solution (Figure 3.8). The seeds are placed
into tiny holes in the cubes and the cover is then put back on the unit.

This has a very high success rate. All the seeds can sometimes
germinate and in most cases often do. The disadvantage to this method
is that you need to spend money on the tray, rockwool and grow
fertilizers. The price of the tray is about $10/£10, the rockwool cubes
$5/£5, the grow fertilizers $5/£5. If you have spent $50/£50 on seeds
then why not spend the extra $20/£20 on getting a small kit together
like this. The other advantage is that you can use this same tray to help
root your clones.

DANGERS WHEN PROPAGATING SEEDS
Drafts are a killer and will stunt germination. Always make
sure that you keep your germinating seeds away from any open
windows or fans. Also make sure that the room is kept warm. A cold
room can inhibit your germination rates. The other thing to look out
for when using germination fertilizers is to make sure that your
mixture is correct. Do not use high doses of fertilizers with seedlings.
In fact water is all seedlings should need. You do not need to add
anything. Some people do use germination solutions though, but make
sure that you keep these solution strengths down low. An incorrect
mixture can burn your seedlings and cause them to fail. Another thing
to do is to leave your seeds alone to grow. Do not go fiddling with
them, hence the term ‘digging up your seeds’. Some people tend to
disturb the soil to see how their seeds are doing. This is a bad move
and can break or even damage the seed and root. The other thing to
keep in mind is that some strains produce seedlings that have weak
stems. This means that the seed

rather than wires making for easier and better training strategies).
Plant suffered a dry out of the res. which hurt the root system some (it was caught pretty quick.) After this dry
out yellowing started. I believe it was due to some root damage but it could just have been because the fast
growth rate required more N than I was feeding it. I’ll find out next go round. (Because of this I ended up
overcompensating with N too long into the flowering stage and ended up with leafier bud than I should have.)"
"Days Till Harvest
The first bud was snipped at 37 days with approx. 50% of flowers having turned. Main harvesting took place
on day 42, 43 and 44.
This sucker is fast! I’ve never seen a plant flower this fast. It sounds just like the Shiskaberry that Shiva
raves about. NOW I know why he loves the Shiska and why I will love one soon too ;-) Because of the speed
of flowering and the condition of the plant when put to flower I failed miserably trying to fill the area I wanted
too on the screen. The plant stopped growing after only 6 days! It’s not only a fast flowerer it veg’s at a quick
pace as well. The plant does well under low light levels. Found this out by letting it spend time under flouros
during veg to help keep tight nodes for future cuts. Add this to the fact that buds on the garden edge did
very well when compared with those towards the middle of the grow and I don’t think you could go wrong with
any light and this plant."
"Just to give an idea how fast this plant flowers. I still have my NL#5 and put one under the screen just to get
it out of the way (Remember I’m looking to kill this thing off soon because of the constant flowering it does).
The Top 44 was put to flower about 19 days after the NL5. The Top 44 caught up to the NL in 3 weeks as far
as flower growth goes and passed it in 4. It was amazing to watch especially after spending so many years
with mostly sativa bag seed."
Because of my failure with the screen it’s impossible to give an accurate grams/sq.’ number. Because the
plant stopped growing 6 days after induction I ended up with a circle of buds, most small, with a big hole in
the middle. (I didn’t start the plant in a corner since I put an NxS plant there in case I failed---I hate empty
space in a flowering area). Best guess on area covered is somewhere between 1.5 and 2.25 square feet. With
that said.. 84 grams, dry was the total harvest weight for quality bud. The small amount of cooking bud was
not counted in this figure. (There wouldn’t have been much cooking bud at all if I had trained well since big
buds were shading smaller ones due to the poor training)."
Buds were nice and tight with orange to red rust colored hairs when done. Rather than the larger resin glands
I see with the N x S the T44 has small resin glands. While the N x S looks like a coat of crystals the T44
glands look like a coat of light snow or heavy dust. Many areas of
