Alright, my second grow of Colombian is dehydrating now. There were so many clusters on this one that they were hard to harvest. But it was fun!
As I expected from several improvements comparing it to my first grow - more and better spawn, higher spawn to bulk ratio, more fresh air and misting - the yield was quite a bit higher for this first flush.
Last grow the first flush got me about a 100 gram - now I took 160 grams off of the substrate. (edit: 23 grams dry!)
Here are some pictures:
There were a few big ones in the middle of some clusters. I took one clone of those yesterday and two today right before harvesting the rest. I have 5 clones now on this variety. I think that is enough for now, to start doing some tests as soon as they are done.
Have prepped 12 jars of rye to get on some other varieties now. I altered the way I prepped the rye a little bit. I still soak for 24 hours, starting out with hot water (60°C/140°F) that I replace a few hours in. After the 24 hours are over I boil for 5 minutes now, in stead of 10 like I did before. I still like the effect boiling the grain has on how I can dry them off by steaming. That's basically all I do it for now, the grains are pretty much hydrated after my soak - and endospores have certainly started germinating by then.
I have decided to get the Golden Teacher and the Albino A+ out of the fridge. Curious about those. I have grown GT before, the AA+ is new to me. Should be exciting!
