Sannies' Jack, Killing Fields + Jack Candy - Tropical Guerilla Grow Just did a bean drop for the official Maria tropical guerilla grow in my new location. The "tester" run was here, but I haven't even checked on them since putting them out... Have been eyeing up Sannies' seeds for a long time. Love the work he has done with the Jack Herer, creating his own F9 IBL Jacks!!! And then a few other Jack crosses, like the Killing Fields. Plus got Jack Candy (NAW) for freebies. 3 X Sannies Jack F9 (photo, reg) -- from Sannies' Seeds 2 X Killing Fields F8 (?) (photo, fem) -- from Sannies' Seeds 5 X Jack Candy (freebies, photo, reg) -- from NAW (through Sannies') Decided to drop 10 beans in total, prob going into 5 pots (2 beans / pot). Leaving me with 7 Jack, 3 KF for future grows. They're in little sponge pots, which Sannie recommends and I got sent with order. Beans are: JC -- JC -- JC -- JC --- JC -- SJ -- SJ -- SJ -- KF --- KF -- In they go! Soaking in a little Bacto for healthy start to life. Have saved a little more Bacto for transplanting. Can check out some of Sannies' strains in his photo gallery here. I'm not going to end up with anything like that in this wild guerilla grow, but nice inspiration! Sannies Jack (reg, photo) is Sannies' F9 IBL from Sensi Jack Herer. Hasn't been crossed with anything else. So can be considered inbred line by now. Goes for about 11-13 weeks, supposed to be much more stable than Sensi Jack. Sannie seems to have bred it for single stem SoG or topped ScroG growing, especially at 12/12 from seed, or maybe just 1 week of 18/6. That's a reason why I think it should be good for my tropical climate at about 12/12 to 11/13 right through the grow. Killing Fields (fem, photo) is up to about F8 by now, I think, so almost IBL. Originally a cross between The One and Sannies' Jack. The One is itself Blueberry Sativa X (Killa Queen X NYCD), so has a lot of the Jack also in the Killa Queen from C99. The Blueberry gives the purple pheno, I guess. If you search on Open Grow forum, there is an amazing thread from the breeder on his selection and breeding process. Excellent learning material for any wannabe pollen chuckers like myself, haha. Jack Candy (reg, photo) are freebies only, seem to be a cross that hasn't made it to the shop, just freebies. Is Jack Hammer X Head Candy. Jack Hammer is Jack X Amnesia Haze, and Head Candy is Killa Queen X Blue Hammer. NAW breeder Poldergrower says it'll run about 11-12 weeks, sativa dominant pheno, pineapple flavor (maybe from the Jack?) Assuming that these plants can make it through to harvest, or at least a few of them, should be able to get some females, and maybe a male, to make some crosses. There's enough Jack Herer in all three strains to get a nice Jack cross somewhere in there. Let's see. Now... have a shopping list: Cups for seedling growth. Will do "insta-planters". Soil mix, local stuff, a couple of bags. Some kind of pots or bags, maybe just 5 pots / bags @ 5-10 L each will be ok. Nappies -- to rip out some polyacrylate crystals for water retention. If possible, but not urgent: Some kind of bloom fert / nutes. No idea what at this point... Love ya all! MJS
3 Sannie's Jack FEM 4 Killing Fields FEM 1 Jackberry X MadScientist FEM (I killed it, sorry everyone ) Not enough space (DR60 ver. 2), so thats 60cm x 60cm x 190cm? 2 Has LED Panels (fall 2013 version, 65W each) 17liter pots, filled only to ~13 liters of soil (enriched with Sannie's Starter Pack + Perfect Start).. no Yucca unfortunately. Most of the grow reports I read on here are compiled by some really expert greenthumbs, but I know that when I started this grow after 7+ years of not growing - my knowledge base was lacking, and certain simple things were stressing me out that shouldn't have done so. I started a word document journal that I will copy into this first post to give everyone a glimpse of the timeline of events of my grow so far. Most importantly, the germination/seedling stage gave me a ton of grief. Patience is the key word here, and I wish I hadn't taken a week off of work to get my set-up ready, because I ended up overthinking everything. It's also a lot nicer to see your plants once every 8 hours or so to really see progress. Here goes... January 7, 2014 1 Sannie’s Jack seed and 1 Killing Fields seed dropped into spongepot with bacto according to Sannie’s formula (dome + perlite + bacto + humidity + spongepots). Didn't have a dome - used a plastic cookie tray after the cookies were done, and a big ziplock bag. January 9, 2014 1 Sannie’s Jack seed and 1 Killing Fields seed dropped into shotglass with BRITA water. January 10, 2014 Morning- Shotglass seeds placed into wet paper towels in tupperware container, put onto radiator (turned down heat). Evening- Tupperware seeds germinated, placed into spongepots + myco + bacto. Placed into dome next to first two seeds. 1st Killing Fields Seed is breaking ground with cotyledons. All seeds germinated. Pulled 1st SJ seed out of spongepot because was doubting germination – it had taproot of ~1/2 centimeter. Settled it back into the spongepot. January 12, 2014 Morning- All 4 seedlings emerged from spongepots overnight. The 1st KF seedling has green cotyledons and two green true leaves. The remaining 3 seedlings have green cotyledons, but yellowing or no true leaves. 1 of the 3 remaining seedlings is a triploid. Put an additional 1 KF and 1 SJ seed into shotglass of BRITA water. Transplanted spongepots/seedlings to 1.5L black pots. Evening- No change from the morning, seedlings angled themselves more towards the light. Planted the newly soaked seeds in the pots of the two weakest looking seedlings. Did not wait for germination in tupperware/Paper Towel container. Planted an additional KF seed and JackberryXMadScientist seed into the last two seedling pots that still only had 1 plant/seed per pot. The healthy KF seedling now has another KF seed in the pot with it. The assumed SJ seedling (from Jan 7) now has a JBXMS seed in the pot with it. January 13, 2014 Morning- The three weak seedlings all showed growth overnight. The assumed older SJ seedling enlarged its true leaves, and is a healthier shade of green. The two other weaker seedlings (Jan 9) both showed minor true leaf growth, but are still yellowish, with browned tips, but beginning to green on the inside of the leaf/new growth. Evening- Continued growth. No sprouts from remaining seeds as of yet. January 15, 2014 Morning- Watered 4 seedlings fairly thoroughly. The new KF seed in the slow-growing KF seedling pot sprouted through the ground. The seed casing had not come off, but I wet it a little bit and went to work. We’ll see how it does when I get home. Jan 16, 2014 All seeds sprouted. All 8. Now what do I do?! Jan 23, 2014 All plants continue to grow well. I know that I started with 4 KF, 3 SJ, and 1 JBXMS. From their growth pattern, and knowing where I planted certain seeds (like the runt KF got another KF seed, and the strongest SJ seedling got a JBXMS in the pot with it). The LED lights are proving what everyone else has already said – great growth with tight internode spacing. We’ll see how this keeps up during flowering. Strongest growth is coming from the SJ heritage. All 3 SJ are exhibiting a similar growth phenotype, which is even visible in two of the KF (the triploid main plant, and the back-up KF to the runt). The little runt still grows very nicely, but almost as if it was a dwarf version. The last KF seems to be growing slowly – maybe it’s struggling, or maybe it just needs more time because it’s a different phenotype. The JackBerry X MadScientist is also growing slowly. All plants are green and healthy! Jan 25, 2014 Transplanted into bigger containers. Unfortunately, I didn’t have enough soil to fill containers up fully. It could have been a 4 gallon grow container, but is closer to 3 gallons now. Changed light on/off schedule to 18/6, down from 24/0. Jan 29, 2014 Changed light on/off schedule to 15/9, down from 18/6. Jan 30, 2014 In the morning I FIM’ed 5 out of the 7 plants (didn’t FIM or TOP the smallest KF, topped the triploid KF for a guaranteed three nice tops. A couple hours before lights out I pruned most of the lower branches and fan leaves on all the plants. I hope to give them another 4-5 days to recover and restart growing before switching to flowering (whether they’re mature or not). Jan 31, 2014 Morning. Picture of the girls. Stay tuned I guess! I want to switch lights to 12/12 on Feb 3rd, and maybe do some sort of custom twine netting to scrog up the place a bit. I always wanted to a scrog, ahhhh exciting!!
