Grow Log: My First Sallys

Postby dallanh » Wed Jun 08, 2011 9:51 pm

Hello! First Post!

I potted my very first Sallys today so I thought that I would share their life with you in a grow log.

The Rooted Blosser Cuttings:

Their First Beds: Dr. Earth:

Their New Bedroom: It's an aquaponic setup that I converted to a temporary humidity chamber until I can harden the new little ones. I have a nebulizer running on the top rack that bathes the Sally's in a constant flow of cold fog. The fish tank is a reservoir with a pump that keeps the nebulizer wet.

Verry clever use of the baker's rack! I like it.

Success! 6 days after potting my first rooted cuttings, I awoke to find new growth. My excitement was very high:

And then...

CRISIS! That night, my nebulizer failed, allowing the humidity to slowly drop over the night. By the next morning the leaves were wilted and beginning to brown. I spent the day trying with no success to maintain humidity by hand, while I attempted to fix the nebulizer. After a day of failure, I purchased a medical humidifier from the local drug store and rigged it in to my aquaponic tent. This has proven to create a very difficult environment for the girls; but their decline has slowed significantly. This steam humidifier is very hot and quickly raises the tent above 100F. I am constantly playing with the tent to vent heat while maintaining humidity. I will be moving one of them to a 2-liter bottle humidity dome for a comparative experience. It's touch and go. I may lose this batch. But I am currently learning volumes about caring for these little Sally's.

oh, so sorry for the little ones! They'll do great as long as you keep them 80-90 degrees farenheit, and 70-80% humidity. They'll thive. Very cool setup, though! Hey, I need a spaceship, but all i have is a paper clip and a stick of gum. You can do it. :lol:
anything that i post here is fictional, for my entertainment, and not to be taken seriously.
