Hey there fellow Open Growers! To be discreet I'm writing this grow-log in fifth person, so every sentence starts out with: “I heard from this guy who told somebody…” Never done a grow report before and figuire this will be a good test ground for learning. IMO it's about damn time for me to do a grow show here. Been here a couple years and lurked a bit more. Mostly this grow show is about Holy LUI. Eskobar's sexy, dreamy and sweet Holy Princess. Breeder Steve's (S.O.L.) Legends Ultimate Indica F1 males. They could be a match made in heaven. This one is thanks to Santero who made this cross. Good job, my friend. Eskobar has made some awesome gear. Holy Princess specifically is an F1 cross of Santa Maria plank cut X C99 pineapple pheno. Distinct drool on my shirt sweet and skunky smells with a dreamy high. http://en.seedfinder.eu/strain-info/Holy_Princess/Eskobar_Seeds/ Back in the day I wanted to grow me some LUI and never got around to it. A Spice of Life strain by breeded Steve, which was an F1 of Ortega X Sweet Tooth BX2. http://en.seedfinder.eu/strain-info/Legends_Ultimate_Indica/Spice_of_Life_Seeds/ Many thanks to Santero. You're humility, knowledge and hard work never fails to impress me. |------------------------- ♢♢♢ Let us get this show on the road ♢♢♢ I started with 12 nicely colored mature seeds. Dropped into a SANta mug with luke-warm water and dilute H2O2. Kept low 80'sF and in the dark. Then paper towels until I saw tap roots from all but two. Followed that by planting in seed starter medium with some bennies and limited goodies. Still in the dark and @ low 80'sF All excited and concerned. Such a cool cross and tons of potential. please pop, please pop 11 of them out of 12. Very acceptable. (I worked the # 11 seed over for a month, but no-go.) So #s 1-10 & 12. All 11 are showing vigor. They have that cute baby look. Just like any other canna baby at this point. Low wattage 4200K fluo. for the seedling stage before 1st transplant. I cannot wait until they get a little older and the terpines start assailing me with yumminess. Just a couple few days later they began showing slightly different leaf traits. Some small amount of stem color influences are faintly noticable. Also a bazillion trichome hairs. Smells were already exuding from a few if I got up close. After about a week in the lil coco cups I am seeing tap roots out the bottoms. I transplanted up to 1 gallon containers with ammended recycled organic soil mix. And moved them under a mix spectrum T5HO leaning toward blue.
Here we go boys and girls... Going to document a bunch of strains in one thread, so the slower folks and those who like to dab too much may want to get a paper and pencil. I had a hard time keeping up with 2 or 3 threads last time even though I wanted to keep those strains in their appropriate forums. As some of you may or may not know, I like to post walls of text interspersed with lots of pics. *DISCLAIMER* Any/all comments, opinions, suggestions or whatever have you are always welcome in my threads...but if you are in the mood to troll or just be an idiot I have to warn you in advance that my og krew is pretty rough on douchebaggery. If they don't slam you for being inappropriate in one of my threads then you can rest assured I will. ******************* So with that out of the way let's get this thing started! Next med run... Gotta keep the jars full while all of these little ones grow up and strut their stuff! I am going to list all of the germ rates of each strain, which seem the most vigorous, blah blah blah...but for now just know that two of the littles ones have caught my eye! One of them is a Hammerhead from NAW Seeds. FINALLY got a chance to crack these babies, let's see what we get! The other is not a surprise to me at all, as almost everything I've gotten from this dude has been straight fire - BBSD cross (I got so confused trying to figure out the nomenclature that I'm just calling it that for now. Maybe dude will chime in with the specifics) Sugarpunch gets the vote for most vigorous so far...5 for 5 up and running and almost identical so far. They are runners for sure. Introducing - The Lemon Gangsta (thanks for the moniker, slayer) I know I've already said it, but there are some HIGH hopes for this strain. Flavor Bomb! LemonG x K.O. Kush...by the dude I'll do a proper write up as soon as I get some time. Those of you who have read my previous threads/grow reports know how I get down. Thanks in advance for checking it out and I guess you all know the drill by now... SMOKE 'EM IF YA GOT 'EM and ROLL IT LIKE YOU GROW IT!
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!
