  1. Hi there @Sunnyvale The aromas from San's Raspberry Truffle f2 are a little different from those on the AHxCR. (by the way I have to say it my gf just called out to me from the living room saying something smelled like cat piss. Then she came the the back room and I said, pointing at my drying plants, "Are you sure it's not from these?" She was like "Oh wow, those smell AMAZING!") The ones I have, and basically all three are very close in nose... are more of a ripe papaya or concord grape. There's something sharp about their aroma - almost a cat-piss, but not. Acrid grape, perhaps. Maybe some sour cherry. They truly smell amazing, and the whole house is filled with this amazing aroma. They're also just recently cut so the aromas will change, of course. I think the sharpness will mellow. I really like the Rhaspberry Truffle. Anyway, the AHxCR is more of a sweet smelling raspberry. Fruity... for sure red berries. They are close in comparison, just by smell alone you can tell that they're related. But structurally, they are very different. I still have the AHxCR mom I used for the f2s. I still grow her out, as well as f2s. I'm still amazed at how different she can be in different environments. These plants want to get big. The Rhaspberry Truffles are short and stocky, making them very manageable. They're just really nice plants .I'm going to pick one of the three I have, maybe two, and run like 8 of them. I really like their size and structure. I think it'll be cool to SOG them. And doing the repros is very much an honor. I feel blessed to be a part of getting them out. I hope people will make their own crosses - play around with them. e$ko put together amazing crosses. He has such a keen sense. Very talented. And San has done an amazing job on making them available again. He also has real talent. This tribute is a very cool thing. It's about carrying on the work that e$ko did so that y'all can partake :)
  2. On a higher note... here's some Rhaspberry Truffle f2s finishing up. these are two that I had indoor. photos taken at 60 days #1 #2 #3 - this one flowered outdoor
  3. Hey there San. I started looking through that dudes thread, and found a match for a picture that I posted for Vanilla Haze. This is the OPG post - posted November 8th, 2019: https://www.opengrow.com/topic/53042-saving-ecobars-strains/page/7/?tab=comments#comment-791362 and the escohighlife post is on November 9th, 2019 https://www.instagram.com/p/B4qofvUh62Z/ My guess is that none of images on there are his... they're all taken from someone/somewhere else. My conclusion is he's terribly alone and has no friends, or he's a cop... and most probably all the above

    I've got some packed and they'll be arriving in the shop soon. These are seeds from two females paired with two males. I made copies to run again, as well, I'll test the F2s. Both females are impressive. One female has an outstanding Lily of the Valley aroma,,, like spot on. The other is more sweet fuel. The potency on both is very good. @Indicalicious I just saw that you have some BlueChem F4s for sale at SH. I hadn't seen them there before. We should get someone on OPG to do a side by side and compare them. What do you say? As well, anyone on OPG want to do the side by side?
  5. Some Raspberry Truffles... the first two are more strawberry (which San had pre-sorted within the batch = Strawberry / Raspberry) and the third is the more Raspberry. It's interesting to note that the more Strawberry plants have 9-finger leaflets, and the Raspberry has 7. #1 Numero dos and the third These are all at Week 4 Happy growing

    Finally finishing up. Excellent trichome coverage. There are two females. One has a beautiful aroma that's strait up Lily Of The Valley. The other is a much louder, punched up chemical berry.
  7. Yes, the same. I've grown the F2's out a number of times, and in my opinion they're really the best outdoors. They like to get tall. Although I have yet to scrog them indoors... that would probably work out really well, too
  8. She ^^^^ finally got chopped down. These are the only pics I got, but the flowers are each about as fat and taller than a beer can. The aromas are stunning!

    BluChem seeded up. Completely outrageous aromas coming off these. Sweet berry candy with some kind of peanut butter, then doused in gas. Very impressive

    Another thing I've noticed with the bees - they are collecting pollen in the morning, from day-break till about noon. I wondered if this was the bees choice, or the plants... this is what I found: Q: Is there a particular time of the day when bees collect nectar or pollen from a flower? or in other words is there any preference of honey bees to collect nectar at some particular time of the day and pollen at some other time of the day? At what time do they collect most nectar? A: It’s more a matter of the flowers. Certain plants release nectar or pollen at certain times of day, but not others. It varies with different species. So the honey bees learn which plants to visit at which time of day. When those give out, they move onto others. So it’s really the plants that govern the schedule and the bees go along with it. Interesting, right? So if pollen is dropped during the early part of the day, does that mean that the best time for pollination is during lights-on??? I've always assumed it was during the night... you know, because sex is at night! Really tho, I've always pollinated at lights-off.
