Calypso cilantro is currently growing in my house, but after 3+ months of reliable weekly harvests, the plants are starting to bolt (sending up a flower stalk), so they are probably nearing the end of their useful life. I will start up some new plants at this time.
Mar 20, 2016 = Day 0. Plants started from seed (Park Seed). Seeds sowed in 1.5-inch rockwool cube in 2-inch net-pot. Moistened with dilute fertilizer solution: 1.2 mL Dyna-Gro Liquid Grow, 0.8 mL pH Down per gallon of tap water. N-P-K (in ppm): 22-12-13. pH = 6.0.
Mar 25 = Day 5. Plant germinated, placed directly under a fluorescent light (2 ft. T8 bulb, 17W, 6500k) for 16 hours per day.
Mar 31 = Day 11. In 1 of the net-pots, the plants are too leggy and unable to stand up. I will re-start that net-pot with fresh seeds.
Apr 7 = Day 18. Installed plants into 5-gallon bucket. Hydroponic solution composed of 5 gal (18.9 L) tap water, 10 g MasterBlend 4-18-38, 10 g calcium nitrate, 5 g magnesium sulfate, 1 mL Dyna-Gro Pro-TeKt, 5 mL pH Down. N-P-K (in ppm): 103-41-168. pH = 6.0. Plants moved to indoor grow room, receiving 9 hours LED grow light per day, plus 3 hours sunlight per day.
May 18 = Day 59. Began harvesting lower leaves.
Jul 11 = Day 113. Harvested all remaining leaves. Total fluid used = 3.5 gallons (1.2 gallons per plant). Final pH of fluid = 5.0.
