    This is a test to see if I can upload an image.
  2. It is pretty much impossible to make a true F1 with any of the genetics available on the market today. 1+1 breeding is stripping out the gene pool. This is the cost of improper breeding. I found this paper on The Real Seed Co blog :: Alarmingly, Central and South Asian landraces have been corrupted by the introduction of foreign germplasm into their centers of diversity. Beisler (2006) boasted of importing “Mexican Gold” into Afghanistan around 1972. Casano (2005) noted that Afghani landraces were “disappearing” due to hybridization with other drug-type plants. Conversely, Central Asian landraces were introduced into South Asian centers of diversity in the 1970s – into Nepal (Cherniak 1982), Jamaica (Lamb 2010), and Thailand (Clarke and Merlin 2016). By 1980, Afghani landraces were imported into southern Kashmir, cultivated for sieved hashīsh, and escapes grew near crop fields (Clarke 1998). Also in the 1980s, Central Asian genetics were introduced into South Africa (Peterson 2009) and Morocco (Clarke and Merlin 2016). Sharma (1988) wrote about “hybrid Cannabis” growing in Kullu, Himachal Pradesh, and he implicated “foreign nationals.” Central and South Asian landraces face extinction through introgressive hybridization. Wiegand (1935) first described this phenomenon in plants. Introgression refers to the infiltration of genes between taxa through the bridge of F1 hybrids. Fertile offspring from these crosses may display hybrid vigor (enhanced fitness), and replace one or both parental populations (Ellstrand 2003). Recent phylogenetic studies of populations allegedly representing “Indica” and “Sativa” show little or no genetic differences, because these studies primarily analyzed hybrid “strains” (Sawler et al. 2015; Dufresnes et al. 2017; Schwabe and McGlaughlin 2018). These results conflict with studies of landraces collected in the 1970s–1990s, which showed much clearer genetic differences (Hillig 2005a; Gilmore et al. 2007). https://www.researchgate.net/publication/340422046_A_classification_of_endangered_high-THC_cannabis_Cannabis_sativa_subsp_indica_domesticates_and_their_wild_relatives
  3. Welcome back. Lots have changed and yet its all still the same as it ever was. LEDs work great, tho. Keep popping seeds until you get something. Best!
  4. I'm torn between Chocolate Boulder and the Sweet Cherry Haze. I've been tending away from C99 crosses - don't even know why, exactly. The Sweet n Sour also looks enticing. I went with CB to level the playing field some So stoked to be part of this again. An honor. Thank you
  5. Thanks @saxo The stems on these are feeble and need to be tied up. The bud structure is gorgeous, the aromas are heavenly,,, but tie this bitch up. Yeah, this cola is leaning on the heatsink. Look at all the pipe cleaners I"m using! We're almost at ten weeks here. These are grown under LEDs and in organic soil. The second one: Stay hydrated!
  6. Here she is indoor going on 9 weeks:
  7. I meant to say DCC, or Derg Corra Collective :D that beauty above can be compared to this, what I'll call the other, more common expression of the Chocolate Diesel F2 I have two like this, both about 1.5m tall. The bud structure on these is more Diesel, compared to the one on the previous post. All three of these plants have a pungent lemon-fuel aroma. Very nice!
  8. Pretty sure this is the more Indica Diamond version of the Chocolate Diesel, from DCG at about 45 days :D
  9. This is from my cut of Amnesia Haze x Chocolate Rain:
  10. For sure @Dogtowns They've been curing for a long time now. The high is very mellow, and very smooth smoke. Mellow like not crazy potent, but gets a nice buzz going. I like it a lot. There's a nice lemony scent to it. There's still a little chloroform to it as well, which I"m wanting to dissipate but it seems to be taking it's time. I think I prefer the more purple one because it smokes smoother. I'm thinking the greener one will mellow some more with age. The buds are nice and airy. It's very nice to have around and the experience of growing them gives me a lot of appreciation for the ganja. I totally recommend that everyone grow some IBLs, especially the long-flowering kind. You will never find this smoke on the streets or in a dispensary, and it's not just for novelty either,,, It's important to expand what you know. Peace and happy growing :D
  11. It's been an honor to participate in the e$ko tribute at SeedHeaven. Happy growing! Himbeer Haze 1st week flower
  12. Nice picture from the future, and nice seed selection you got there, @webeblzr Those were the last of my Blue Dream x BBS seeds so treat them well. I"m looking forward to running Sans F2s as well, to get a comparison to the Amnes cross. Lots of Raspberry and cherry. Thanks for saying hi, as well.
  13. This one is sunning with some citrus while I up-potted her sisters. I'm going to run three (confirmed females) indoor this time. We've started calling the AHxCR Raspberry Haze, or Himbeer Haze, as the name is fitting.
  14. Ok these gals got the chop today. Basically flowered outdoor for 18 weeks. There were two types, one green (to the left) and one purple (on the right). They look pretty battered from the wind and rain - some branches broke off. They both have a bright citrus aroma. I''m very much looking forward to the smoke :D
