The images below are of a Jackberry cross with Herebei seeding from a grow of those strains SEVERAL YEARS AGO! I wanted some seed to practice with as I learned and, despite those seeds sitting in a medicine bottle for at least 3 years- you can see they are still very viable and STRONG! Thank you SANNIE! I double-seeded a 72-cell starter kit in late March and had 100% germination. I selected 24 from those and set out in my garden the beginning of April. Despite a freeze and very wet weather, and having to cull the males, I have 20 females in the garden now with these pictures taken at 11 weeks of vegetative growth. Several are well over 40" tall with several showing very strong BLUEBERRY phenotype that are beautiful and smell delicious! One of the images below I believe to be a male, but giving it some time because it began growing dark PURPLE and just continued that way, while the others (females) took longer to develop that way. If it's a male, is there any reason for keeping it to save the genetics? Or should I just settle for the females I have? If it's worth keeping, what should I do? Never anticipated this situation, but the damn thing is captivating to me with its color! While it isn't nearly as pretty as the two Blueberry females pictured with it, look at that color man! As I recall, I got roughly 2 ounces of dried flower from the grow that produced the seeds for this grow and the plants only reached about 3' high. These are already taller at 11 weeks than those! Any ideas what kind of yield I can expect from these that I don't expect to harvest until October or November (7 to 8 months of total growth)??? Thanks to everyone for helping me get this far. Outdoor growing seems to work much better for me than trying indoor grows- but I'll be taking clones of these soon and giving cloning a first attempt with my Ez-Cloner! Any recommendations on when would be the best time to take cuttings from these young ladies that are just 11 weeks? Peace!
Like the title says, let's discuss here about terpenes and how they contribute to the pleasure of smoking Cannabis. I've tried to find a comprehensive list of terpenes and their olfactory equivalents in cannabis strains. More common seem to be so called flavor wheels, but there are no info of terpenes in those images. For example I personally would love to smoke a strawberry-lime strain, Mojitos anyone? Or lychee-rose flavored one. I guess I like fruity and flowery scents and flavors... And minty ones... Is it simply a matter of finding a specific pheno that carries desired aroma and breding it with the other desired ones, or is it so that environment affects what terpenes "come up" in the plant? I mean does cannabis plant have within it the code for terpenes, but only some dominate due to genetic, environmental etc. reasons... I'm curious to hear what you guys think, what flavors you love, what strains have them and what flavors and flavor combos you'd love to grow... Especially, but not exclusively, strains from Sannie's Shop... What is the range of smell and flavor in different strains and their phenos... Here is a link about terpenes I found easy enough to read and informative. http://www.alternet....page=1#bookmark
