Default Dreamtime.

Sounds like a good plan ! Good variation even in a small sample. Of the three DT I have one is twice the size of the others not to mention at least 3 different phenos by the looks at 3 weeks from seed..the 4 NHS at 4 weeks very vigorous and uniform.
Look forward to following this grow!

Well the dreamtimes are about three weeks old (the oldest) And they are now in larger pots.

This is just after repotting, a week ago.


This picture was taken last night.


So far they are growing very well, I have delayed getting them under the metal halides because they are in an out building that is unheated and we've just had a spring snow fall.

Last night another NHS sprouted so that's 4 for 4, very surprised to see the new sprout.
So that was thirteen days to germinate for the last NHS.

I did a little calculation on my germ rates Dreamtimes took an average of 3.9 days to sprout (58% success), NHS took an average of 5 days to sprout (100% success).

Five of the Dreamtimes never sprouted and I have given up on them.

Looking very promising those dreamtimes! Yes different strains do tend to germinate faster or slower depending. I like the way those seedlings have nice tight nodes!

I'm actually quite surprised at how uniform the growth rate is considering that they are marketed as different strains but that's probably the whole point of creating a Dreamtime pack and a Walkabout pack. The Dreamtime strains are supposed to be more suitable to indoor growing and so far these ones are awesome!

#12 is still my favourite

You have good grounds to be happy with them. I still can't believe the good tight growth you have at such an early stage. They will do really well I'm sure. Good time of year to grow them because the rooms usually stay cooler. IMO this helps produce a much healthier bushier plant which is ideal indoors..

Starting to see quite a bit of variation in the leaves at this point. I still have them crowded in with my NHS in my little seedling starter, but it's getting really crowded in there!

Dreamtime 7 at 22 days - this one is the tallest at just over 8 inches.

So ya, it's getting pretty crowded in there, time to get the plants out to the barn!


I am seeing quite a few of the plants with leaves that are overlapping, like DT#3 shown here. How common is this? Any hints as to what strains do this?


One more shot, just for fun.

Really big for 22 days IMO. Must be fairly warm there I take it. THe overlapping leaves is typical when the growing is good IME. I have one dreamtime that is alot bigger than the others and has short fat leaves, sometimes referred to as rounded, but don't see that with yours.. like you say it is a blended seed mix so could be anything in there , which is what makes it interesting for sure. Hope you move them soon, they need room and are really moving!

Well I moved the Dreamtimes and the NHS out to the barn, I repotted the last two NHS into bigger pots. The seed starting soil is not too rich with nutrients but the soil I used in the bigger pots has some blood meal and bone meal and some worm castings. The soil is well aged so lot's of goodness in there.



So these plants are actually under two lights, each light runs for 10 hour, after a while I will start to overlap the lights to that both lights are on at the same time. By the time I get to flowering each light will still be on for 10 hours but for 8 of the twelve hours both lights will be on. This gives me a flat power usage, something that I am doing strictly because of the energy costs and budgeting.
