Pete, I want to congratulate you now, what you have done is very great. Going from 1,707 pounds to 2,424 is incredible. You trusted the 2552 genetic, and I think you have made a cross, which can be wonderful. We will see in 2023 that seed 2424, which is capable of achieving! You are big

I have germinated 20 seeds, 2x1885 1 x 2365, 3 x 2183, and many more. But the ones that are surprising me at birth, are the 805, fast, beautiful, perfect. I think some 805 will grow.

2 x 1885 and 1 x 2365, and the 2907 are ok, too. But there is a difference with the 805, which were the first to be born.

This year, the fans and nebulisation will be automatic. I want to adjust the humidity to 65% and have the fans work when the temperature is above 27 C. This year the irrigation solenoid valves, and Nebulisation are 220V with a smart plug with wifi, which will make everything easier for me, to operate it from the mobile phone. Letís hope everything works well.

I have prepared white shade, on top of the greenhouse, it can be removed and put on in 5 minutes. After thinking about it a lot, I put it like this. I think it will come in great summer. The 50% white shading mesh gives about 25% shade, thatís how it is, because the light rays bounce off the white colour. The 50% black mesh gives 50% shading.

I donít like the way plants grow with Shadow, I see them slower. I have removed the shade, I will put it in June, when the temperatures are more than 35 Celsius, Today 28 C, please, whatever country it is, stop pointing your climate modification antennas at Europe, this is terrible. Today I have been told that for the month of July, we will not have water for the pumpkins.

2 x 805, one 2365, one 1885, one 2183 and the 2447 cutrupi are the best plants in the soil of the greenhouse. I will have to choose 3 of these 6 plants in a couple of weeks. Pollinators, the best in pot 2405 and 1989 Conway. 2244 and 2447 too are good I was thinking of putting these two pots on the floor, they are beautiful, but I need good pollinators.

805 left, 2365 right. I'm really surprised by the speed of the 805, but the 2365 seems more robust. In 4/5 days I must decide. I have removed the leaf from the 2 plants, which came out under the main guide, a main guide will never bend again. those leaves of the plant, they force the guides to the side, it is always a problem. Planta with 23 days in the soil.

here is a big dilemma. 1885 only has one flower, with 23 secondaries behind, 2183 is the fastest plant, and has 4 females, at 16/18/19/20 secondaries. I have to remove a plant. I could not sleep last night.

We already have 2 pollinations. 2365 x 1989 and 1885 x 1989. Of our 5 pollinators, we have chosen 1989, the best plant in the pot. tomorrow two other Fenenine flowers open, we will see where we have more pollinators flowers, whether 2183 or 1989 or 2405. They are the 3 best pollinators
