  1. @FoolOnTheHill -- have any pics of these as they finished? Also wondering how long they take to finish up? Are you thinking of ACE Seeds Auto-Malawi-NL for the cross? I have a bunch of La Buena Hierba's Haze/Sativa dominant auto regs. Hope to do a bit of match-making, but have to lay low for a while, had some trouble with the law recently....
  2. This one! SJ x SF! How does she take?
  3. @RooftopStoner -- beautiful grow! Could almost use this as a SoG guide. Glad the space filled out. How long did you root / veg the clones for? Or just straight to 12/12 after rooting? Hope you can break 3 elbows here...
  4. Some total times for autos are maybe a bit like growing out photos on 12/12 from seed. Most autos (according to breeders) are in the 10-12 week total time category (though some a def shorter, maybe 8-10 weeks, and some longer). Whereas (in my experience) photos at 12/12 would need maybe 3 weeks for a bit of maturity, then maybe 8-10 weeks flowering, so total of 11-13 weeks. Not that much different. But for me the main issue isn't just the total time, it's growing where you can't control the light. With autos, I feel I can do them in a non-light-sealed location at home, or in guerilla locations around the 'burbs where street lights and stuff are everywhere. And ideally I like to start them around April or May, and have them finish end of June when the light is longest and strongest. (My July has massive storms, so need to finish before that.) Sorry, rambling a little........
  5. @rlsmooth -- looking nice. Tight for 8 days flower. What have you run from ACE? Pics??
  6. 11% larf ain't nothing to laugh at! Half-pound larf patty with attitude. Enjoy!
  7. Hey there good people! Thanks for the support. Tolerance... yeah, threw all my oils when sh!t went down... Better safe than sorry, but in the end, no house search. Yeah, in the end, much much better result than could have been. A fat fine, no time inside, and it's a deferred prosecution, so no record. Could have been a few years and some crazy sh!t like that... In this crazy process, @sannie (the Man!) still came through. He must have just sent out some backup KF fems as the sh!t was going down my side. They arrived safely at my alt address, but I was freaking, wondering if they'd been intercepted and tracked... I held onto them, instead of throwing, and my hunch was right. So still have that pack. Same story happened with another big batch of testers from @La Buena Hierba. Arrived at alt address nicely packaged up. Almost missed a lot of them in the packaging, haha! So have a couple of dozen of his auto regs as well. But, no plans to drop soon, gotta stay low and play safe. For now...
  8. A 22.1 g home made temple ball? Blaze it with Shiva, Bom Bholanath! Must have been a few oz of flower for that...
  9. Back visiting after running into the Law. Have to be a good girl for the next 12 months. Or. There. Will. Be. Trouble.
  10. You can "cut" the pollen with flour or something like that. Gives you a larger actual quantity, but as you just need 1 single pollen grain per calyx, it doesn't reduce chances of successful fertilization. I generally use a little paint brush, dab it in the (cut) pollen, and brush it on my selected branch(es). My herb is for myself and friends, so I don't care about a stray seed here or there in other branches. But otherwise I then bag and tie the chosen branch, using a paper bag. Just 2 days is enough in my experience, then bag off. Best of luck with the seed making! Your plants look fncking awesome!
  11. From Clarke's Marijuana Botany: Biology of Pollination Pollination is the event of pollen landing on a stigmatic surface such as the pistil, and fertilization is the union of the staminate chromosomes from the pollen with the pistillate chromosomes from the ovule. Pollination begins with dehiscence (release of pollen) from staminate flowers. Millions of pollen grains float through the air on light breezes, and many land on the stigmatic surfaces of nearby pistillate plants. If the pistil is ripe, the pollen grain will germinate and send out a long pollen tube much as a seed pushes out a root. The tube contains a haploid (in) generative nucleus and grows downward toward the ovule at the base of the pistils. When the pollen tube reaches the ovule, the staminate haploid nucleus fuses with the pistillate haploid nucleus and the diploid condition is restored. Germination of the pollen grain occurs 15 to 20 minutes after contact with the stigmatic surface (pistil); fertilization may take up to two days in cooler temperatures. Soon after fertilization, the pistils wither away as the ovule and surrounding calyx begin to swell. If the plant is properly watered, seed will form and sexual reproduction is complete. It is crucial that no part of the cycle be interrupted or viable seed will not form. If the pollen is subjected to extremes of temperature, humidity, or moisture, it will fail to germinate, the pollen tube will die prior to fertilization, or the embryo will be unable to develop into a mature seed. Techniques for successful pollination have been designed with all these criteria in mind.
  12. Nice work there. Hope your guerilla season goes well. I have a few CBD photo fem girls out in a nice spot, hidden in reeds / grass by the river side... And a couple of photo regs that are under lights but will be going outside very soon. All the best for the weather and other guerilla factors. Keep blazin' !
  13. Looks like a great set up there! Hope the shadows behind the house don't get too long in the late season... This last picture, I love it!!!!! You just need an automated irrigation system when you hit flush....
  14. I have been thinking about this lately, because I grow in sub-tropics, where middle of summer is about not quite 14/10. A lot of places we see "Plants need 12 hrs darkness to flower." But, if you think about it, this is obviously and clearly not true at all! E.g. take a strain given as 8 wk flower indoors or late September finish outdoors. Well, if it only started to flower on the equinox, Sep 21, then it finishes in 1-2 weeks? No, it obviously doesn't start flowering then. And if you count back 8 weeks from end of September, let's say start of August, how much light? So I did some checks with various time zones and strain information. Seems to be that counting back the total flowering time from harvest, for most temperate climates, then it is about when light cycles are 13:40 / 11:20 light / dark. In a lot of places, that is maybe late July or early August. For me, middle of summer is almost exactly this daylight length. And I know that photo plants will pretty much flower straight away, if they are mature / old enough. Back to your question, "When to flower?" For now, just leave them naturally outside. They'll keep vegging until early August or so (I don't know your longitude...). And start flowering when on a bit less than 14/10. Different strains will certainly vary... this is why equatorial sativas go for months, because light isn't their critical factor...
