Plants arrived in refrigerated semi-trailer at 10:15 AM. Supplier “Southern Grown Hemp” , representative Tandy King provided CoA (certificate of analysis) on site. Visually inspected plants as they came off the trailer. Overall plants look great. Mike noticed two broken stems, and I found one as well. Supplier provided an additional tray (156 plants) to make up for any damages.
On semi-trailer we noticed plants toward the back of trailer had drier soil than those that were up front. Larry (semi driver) explained that because it’s a refrigerated trailer @ 45degrees F, the circulating air tends to leave the plants in the middle more wet, and a bit more dry for those at the back.
It took us about 45 minutes to fully offload the trailer. In the back of Mike’s truck we were able to fit 21 flats at a time. We hauled them inside Mike’s cow barn and placed them on the floor. We left enough room to walk through with a hose to supply water. Plants will be left overnight to acclimate to new climate.
Most plants are between 4 and 8 in tall. All seem healthy with no leaves drooping, burnt or crooked stems.
Weather Observations: Cloudy, high 60s.
