    I have a batch of seedlings growing in among some indica. The media is something like 5:1 sandeat. As has always happend with me when growing indica all but two of the plants in the pot have arrested at small size (I am guessing there is some kind of growth inhibitor being out out by the two large plants which are at opposite sides of the pot.) These have all been growing strong out in my sunporch about a meter below a 400W HID/MH light since August. Late summer temps were still getting to 100F but the winter highs have been 60 tops and I have had nights were the temp in the sunroom dropped below freezing. All the plants are still alive and healthy. Hopefully after the two large indica flower one or more of the hartmeyerorum will kick into growth.

    Travis,

    Try sprinkling a little bloodworm powder on one or two of the leaves of the smaller plants (for precision I use small forceps and my loupe). That's what makes them take off for me.

    Tip: avoid getting any on the larger plants until the smaller ones have caught up --- it won't take long.

    Hi all,
    I got seeds around the same time as Forbes but hadn't sowed them until a little while ago. I've been growing them "au naturel" so here's a picture of two seedlings with morning light, temps 65-75, humidity approx 60%. I took this picture a few months ago, they're now about 2" high but the coloring is the same green/yellow with reddish tips (like a capensis) I'm sure things will pick up when I start getting spring/summer light.

    The yellow emergences looked like bits of pollen to me.

    [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] , yes I know it sounds like magic, but it really works quite well. It applies the nutrients in a near natural form and to the location where it will be utilized most expediently by the plants.

    One other factor, after the dry bloodworms adhere to the leaves I give them a light spritz with water to rehydrate the bloodworms and get them on their way to feeding the plant.

    I tried feeding my seedlings tiny crystals of epiphyte's delight. They died, but I doubt the epiphyte's delight was the cause.
