MiniGorg #1

Planted 11 #1 F2's in coco/perlite 11 days ago after a 12hr soak. 


7 are sprouted and growing well, 3 are a no show, and then there's this little guy... Started it's life pushing it's tap root up and out of the coco.  Not in a typical up then down little loop that you normally get, just the tap root sticking straight up out of the coco.  I didn't want to disturb it, so I added another half cm of coco on top in that hope that it would right itself, but the next day there was the tap root again poking out.  After two days of this I gently dug in and found the seed, which was half popped and buried in the coco, and gently turned the sprout the right way round and replanted it.  The cotyledons were only partly out of the shell so I misted it and waited a day or two for it to work it's way out but it didn't, so I gently squeezed the shell and teased it off, probably damaging the first leaves, and this is what we have...

It's not drooping at all, but it's missing a cotyledon and it's the tiniest seedling I've ever seen lol  Anyone seen anything like that? Think it'll survive?  If not then it's my own fault for going in too aggressively to get that seedling head off, but this is first time I've experienced a seed growing upside down!

 

I'm a bit disappointed that 3 of the 11 don't seem like they're gonna come up at all, and the fourth is a midget :D 

 

Fingers crossed I still get a decent number of females from the seven that have made it so I can find a keeper.

Yeah. I just had one auto that didn't sprout as expected.

I got impatient and dug down. Found the seed had sprouted and could just see the tip of the kind of crooked bit that usually pokes through first before straightening up. Popped the humidity dome back on and left it to it.

When I checked back it had popped up but didn't look quite right. I had just had another seedling that came up with only one cotyledon and thought this one looked like it had lost both. Left it to it again to see if the growth tip would get going without them.

Checked back again and this time got my loupe out to have a closer look.

It was the tap root growing straight upwards out of the soil.

I carefully dug it out and replanted it the right way up with the cotyledons out of the soil but it ended up doing nothing and just withered.

The plant that only had one cotyledon is roaring away with normal growth.

I think the ones that grow upside down are just self identifying as Antipodean :-)

Freaks!

Wasn't planning on it!

Because it's f-ing tiny. 

 

I just named the thread minigorg as a little joke.  As I said, the strain is Ugorg#1, F2. 

 

Apologies if I've caused some confusion lol

Thought I'd update - she's still growing!  Still well behind the others, but they're gonna be getting another good 6 weeks of veg, so that's not a big deal.  Here they are at day 14 (in the duct tape wrapped hempies) -
