My next, and possibly last grow for a while, began about a week ago. Here's the gang: 18 seeds sprouted into something that will probably become an adult plant. Everyone is familiar with Chucky's Bride and Huck Kush, or has at least seen grow reports. Lemon Cindy is Smilestyle's Lemon Thai x C99. Caramel Drizzle is the name I applied to Sinister's cross of two of Prof P's creations, Caramel Cough x Drizella (pre-2013 Drizella!). There are three Caramel Drizzles and 5 each of the other crosses. They will be vegged until there's about a week left in January, then flipped. Then, I'm running off on a business trip for 11 days. Then... mystery! I'll set up the ol' Blumats, I guess, and send them good thoughts from halfway around the world. The larger plants are cuts from my near-ending grow, some of which will be present in this upcoming grow, as well. I OWE Jalisco Jaze another attempt, after the weird nutrient/pH/evil soil organism fuck up during my closing grow. One of the two will have a couple of cuts in the grow. My favorite Bourbon Street (Juicy Fruit Gum with delicate sweaty underarm notes) is in there for sure. It's one of the better depression-killers I've smoked recently. Hammerhead will likely go in, but it's going to depend on the smoke test. Blue Hawaiian will probably NOT go in, because it takes too long in flower. Love Potion 1 x C99 will probably go in, partly so I can cross it again, but partly because it has a remarkably clear buzz. Bourbon Street happens to have an uplifting, let's party and not think too hard kind of buzz, and it's pretty strong. While buzzed on that, I took a couple of hits of the LP1 x C99, and it actually WIPED AWAY the hazy-headed feeling of the Bourbon Street, and gave tremendous clarity. I got a friend high yesterday, who hasn't gotten high in MONTHS, and he experienced the same thing. I had him blasted out of his gourd on Bourbon Street, then filled a bowl with the LP1 x C99. He also used the term "clear headed" in describing it. I don't know if this stuff is for me, but it's unusual, and I might want it in my arsenal. I'm thinking it should be crossed with Lemon Cindy and Huck Kush, see what comes of that. The scent is almost pure chemical. It seems like it would be harsh smoking, but it's smooth as can be. Anyway, there will be more in the coming weeks on this cross. I've got a great name for it if I decide to keep growing it. It's the end of the line for my Killer Indica. I decided I didn't like it enough and I'm betting a Huck Kush will volunteer to replace her. Oh, my old Pineapple Fields cut is going back in for a third appearance. Her Greasiness has earned a place in every flowering session for the foreseeable future.
The summer is thinking about ending now, so it's time to start up my 2014/2015 grow season. For the first time in years I will likely RUN OUT of weed before harvest, unless I conserve [yeah, I'm going to run out]. I let a little too much go to my typical consumers, and then a family member needed some for chemotherapy nausea issues, and... My one bulb grow was stretched to the max. I know I could have put more plants in the flower room last time around, and this grow I should max out the space -- especially considering the likelihood that one or two or all of the sativa doms will go fucking nuts. Should be a fun grow of low per plant yields and a high total yield. ALSO last time, those of you who took careful notes will recall that last season's Blue Hawaiian Sativas were some pure or near-pure indica doms. I now have my small group of consumers WHINING that the only uplifting sativa from the grow was Pineapple Fields, and they all ran out. I'm sure by February, we'll all be whining that we don't have any relaxing or coma inducing indicas, but that's months from now, and I probably won't be the one doing the whining. ANYWAY, the search continues to build up a stable of various sativa mama plants that will cover ANY CONTINGENCY, except contingencies that require an indica. (Next grow there will be an indica search.) So now, the obligatory picture of the seed packs: Jalisco Jaze and Hammerhead are obviously from The Shop. Bourbon Street is a Leprechaun cross of their Lollypop x Burmese sativa. Blue Hawaiian Sativa is from replacement seeds sent to me by JOTI. He doesn't pack replacement seeds in those fancy little test tubes, and just grabs some sandwich bags out of the pantry, apparently. For all 4 of these strains, I'm soaking 5 seeds each. The Lemon Thai and Lush are actually original Fusion creations that were given to me by Indican. There are two LT seeds and one Lush. Fusion's Lemon Berry was a-fucking-mazing, so I'm excited about popping these. If they grow and decide they're boys, there will be crosses with a number of the girls. In addition to these, there will be one or two Pineapple Fields pheno C clones in there. She was the star of my last grow, IMO. There will also be a couchlock indica clone that was from last season's "Blue Hawaiian" that turned out to be a heavy indica. This one stood out as having literally ZERO cerebral effects, aside from dulling the thought processes. Yes, I do appreciate indicas, and will probably appreciate them even more by growing almost none. Lush and Hammerhead will be the closest strains to that end of the scale. The soaking of the seeds has commenced. The ceremonial placing in spongepots will happen tomorrow, but I will probably not annoy you will constant updates of seedlings, unless something weird and noteworthy occurs. Oh, this will be an organic soil grow, using Dr. Earth's potting soil as a base, and mixing dry organic ingredients, dolomite, myco and extra perlite (if it looks like I won't be sent abroad during this grow - perlite tends to reduce water holding capacity of soil, which I need when my grow is on its own for periods of time.) I also use plenty of Sannie's Bacto. about 9 plants will be in 5 gallon Smart Pots or another brand of cloth pot. Additional plants (I'm hoping for 12) will be in 3 gallon (11 liter) cloth pots. Let it hereby be known that I will not be going off topic here EVER, and will tolerate no idle chit-chat on this thread! It's just going to be serious business. Stop smirking!
