    Here's two gals getting scrogged @ week 4 \

    Please make some seeds if you're able to. Thanks, @Balarama

    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.

    Yes, those bees are awesome, and watching them made me think a little about what they're doing. I've seen videos of bees making honey from bee pollen - that's really amazing. But what I started to realize while watching these bees attack the pollen on my plants is that they did a really good job of keeping the pollen from getting out and floating around. Could this be a way to control pollen on outdoor grows? Just a thought. I've heard of issues with large-scale hemp grows pollinating nearby canna crops. Perhaps bees could help mitigate the spread. Thanks for stopping by

    Here's another of the double-serrated male - this time showing the flowers. It has been suggested in some quarters that this (double serrated leaves) might be a signature of the Blueberry. I like this kind of observation as it's something that can be followed in the offspring when comparing flavor with look.

    I popped these in late June - got two males and two females (the fifth didn't sprout) BlueChem chemdog (from seeds) x blueberry (esko's blue dude). they go 9-10 weeks. the plants mix well, but there are dominant phenos as well in the F1. __ Bluechem is Chemdog vs True Blueberry, average flowering time is 9.5 weeks. Tell your friend he must look for big leafed metalic bud shining phenotypes. It was first designed to give to Marshall Seeds, but they never reached the internet. That is why u can find them listened, as bluechem, on seedfinder. But there it says Chemdawq vs Blueberry Sativa .... = wrong. Blueberry Sativa, was later in the timeline, so logical thinking, excludes this one. Cause i never wanted the bluechem to be sold again, i made it freebies in sanniesshop. Right now, i am preparing to remake them, also a bx test, and some other special things.... to just give them away again. That i made it freebie, made it a bit underdog, but some years further now, my pm box is hot about this one. I cant follow the messages anymore. LOL. Grdz e$ko, __ Yes my Chem is not the dawq version, i dont want that one. These seeds were a gift from a well known international breeder, and on the pack it said Chemdog. I did the selection for him, i ended up with two wich i could not choose, finally i used CD2. Wich is allready in the BlueChem freebie with Chocolate Rain.(freebie introduction that will proove itself auto) More yields and intense sour taste. Uhm, u really have to like this hard taste and very expanding sour smoke. The Chem91 is a hybridclone i got collected, wich is softer in taste, not from the same source. I most confess i dont know allot about this one from background. __ Here's one all maled out and buzzed up Bees_0021.mov and this is the other male, showing pronounced double serrated leaves I"ll post the females soon :D
  7. Here's an F2 that's going strong OD. It's about 2.5 meters tall from soil/ base of stalk

    This is a test to see if I can upload an image.
  9. 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
  10. 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!
  11. 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
  12. 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!
  13. Here she is indoor going on 9 weeks:
  14. 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!
