Croquembouche Looks good. I’ve got a couple beans going now. You can let me know how it turns out 😂
Yeah, like I was gonna keep that secret :ROFLMAO:

It's actually the one in that closet I'm watching closer to see if I overfed or didn't feed enough. With the top-feed I use about a week after flip (and that feeding) they usually green up real well and get that glossy look to them. She looks like she might need more food than the rest.

After only 3 days, all 4 that I flipped showed. Only the Angel Heart was a girl. Both PTK and the first of 3 HQ were boys.
I went ahead and flipped the others except for the early skunk - which got topped. The seedlings got their first actual watering. Not soaked, but not from a spray bottle. I have the side vents open on them now as well, letting them get used to the low humidity.

Here's the jumble.

Looking at the just flipped, the 2 HQ got flipped because they are gonna be boys unless a unicorn farts on them.
That means with a female in the bunch only 4 are a mystery (counting the skunk I haven't flipped). I planned on getting 4-6. 2 so far, so I'll probably end up with room for them to spread out.

Day 7 and I gave the babies a few hours with no lid. #4 looks like a goner. #17 is a runt that needed an assist breaking soil, and is doing fine.
I like this seedling soil because it's easy to see what is getting dry (by the vents) but a quick check and it is just the surface. I moistened them with a spray bottle to match the others :)
I put the lids back on for the dark period and we'll see what's up after. I checked a few others and they mostly have roots peeking out the holes, some excessively. The wilted one does not.

Getting set up to repot the babies in the small cups into half gallon containers. Might do the Spahn Ranch as well.
I ran out of new soil before I started this run, so I got a sack of Roots Organic and a sack of FFHF.
Since I have 16-17 PD to repot, I'm doing 6 in each, and whatever's left in leftover sifted soil. If there is not a noticable difference I may not buy new soil for a while.

The PD that keeled over a little then stood back up is gone. Just didn't root well, and I think the humidity on the plant itself was all that was keeping it vertical. So I have 6 in Greenfields, 6 in FFHF and 4 in recycled stuff.
The other regular size cups are still good for a bit. The 16 PD are hopefully going to make it to flip in the half pots. The rest are going into one gallons.
I don't see that skunk stretching much after flip, so no clue when I'll flip it. It has to grow sometime.

Everything big got fed today, holding off on the just flipped girl untl I have them all sorted. The VSL is 99% a girl, and the RIR are just showing. The HQ are not popping nuts early so there may be a chance there.

The Croq crowds the closet all by herself. Super long fan leaf stems and fat leaves.

Based on @J.James recommendations I have added raw dehydrated coconut water to my arsenal. It has lots of goodies in it, and is best if you don't use anything else that watering (so it's quick and easy - no pH-ing). No nutes, no calmag, nothing. 0ppm or close water and mix in a tsp per gallon.

Doing the re-pots I have had the best success going into mostly dry soil. I water around the plant a little right after I get it settled. Maybe a half a cup. No drowning roots or anything, but it draind, gets eaten, evaporates, etc. quick. So I can go back more often as they get going to add a little. They have new soil with nutes in it, so I don't want to add more yet - but the coconut water can give them a boost. So today they each got about another half cup but juiced with the coconut.
