Forgot I took these before the holiday break. A bunch of new goodies I’ll be growing out for the new year. Forgive their newness... took pics within a couple hours of dipping and glueing to new plugs. They’ve colored up nicely once acclimated.

That packaging looks familiar... I love the RR Raven. It’s so bright.

Can I ask what you use to dip your new frags in Ty
I use potassium chloride... in the form of water softener pellets at Home Depot. I used to be more diligent about measuring exact amounts but I usually just mix it with tank water until dissolved and slowly pour into the container with the new frags until I see things jumping off the plugs like liquid fire.

Thanks.
How long do you dip for typically?

When you did worry about measuring how much did KCl did you dissolve in how much tank water?? Just curious.

I think it was like 2 teaspoons per gallon to raise the potassium 400 ppm to burn those little ******** off your frags.

Yea RR raven has such rich color. Good batch there!
My favorite from the batch by far! I’m obsessed!
Ty I’m on Acro overload! That frag pack is mind boggling. I’m looking forward to seeing some of these grow.
Me too! I’m still processing everything I got mentality. So excited for all of these to grow out.
