indigenou$ Chocolate Rain (Chocolope X Cocoa Kush) LET IT RAIN!

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone. :wave:

This is my 1st post on this forum and I'm very happy to be here, close to the many breeders and growers I admire.

Respect to e$ko for offering good genetics at GOOD PRICES.

 

Some of you may remember my Chocolate Rain grow journal from a different forum but here it is again for those who missed it.

ENJOY! B)

 

 

 

 

 

P.S. For this grow, I'm growing in subcool's ORGANIC super soil recipe with Vermifire as the base soil. Furthermore, I am growing in 10 gallon buckets under a 600W light during veg and 1000W light during flower, while using a Magnum XXXL reflector. The various supplements I used for this grow include blackstrap molasses, Hygrozyme, and Microblast.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Here are some PICS in chronological order:

 

 

 

Beginning:

Started 10 Chocolate Rain seeds in rapid rooters..... easy.

gallery_10140_4417_22585.jpg

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Baby Stage:

9 out of 10 seeds popped.

gallery_10140_4417_635829.jpg

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Topped:

As you can see, I also got 1 runt. Not a big deal.

gallery_10140_4417_1993977.jpg

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Supercropped:

This is for bushier plants, canopy control, and bigger yields.

Recovering nicely:

Separating the Males and Females:

Here's a shot of "Pheno X" AKA "Raspberry Pheno":

Here's a shot of "Pheno V" AKA "Claw Pheno":

gallery_10140_4417_121154.jpg

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Group Shot:

I got 5 nice females from this 10 pack so everything is good.

Welcome to OpenGrow indigenouS.

 

Bud porn is always welcome here.

 

That is a nice looking grow... healthy and vigorous plants with very good branch structure. My kind of plants!

 

Keep it green!

How did you sex them and how long did that take?

 

The method I use is called "Pre-Sexing" and you do this in VEG stage. When cannabis plants veg for 4+ weeks, most of them will eventually show their sex right in between their internodes, even under 18/6 light cycle.

Thanks everyone for such a warm feed back. I can already feel the positivity here. :lol:

 

 

 

Here's some shots of the "Raspberry Pheno":

This one is a short stocky phenotype that produces good weight and frosty, sweet raspberry candy smelling, top shelf cannabis, especially after it's cured. I love the structure.

Here's some shots of "Pheno Y" AKA "Golfball Pheno":

gallery_10140_4417_1423064.jpg

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

LAST VEG SHOT before starting flower:

These plants were topped once and supercropped multiple times in order to form a bushy structure like this.

1ST DAY of 12/12:

Here we go!

As you can see, I over-fertilized my "Pheno V" (plant in front right corner) AKA "Claw Pheno" quite a bit. However, everything else is doing great.

gallery_10140_4417_1785888.jpg

 

gallery_10140_4417_2733631.jpg

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

After some time, it begins to stretch:

Here's a close-up shot of the "Raspberry Pheno" developing very nicely:

Here's some shots as they develop:

10 gallon pots???

Looks great, Indigenous. I love the way those stalks are nice and thick.

 

:whistle:

 

I'm watching this one until the end!

Thanks for the positive feedback.

You're definitely going to enjoy the aftermath. :tu

 

 

 

 

 

 

As time flies, the plants grow.

 

 

 

 

 

Here's a side-view of this Chocolate Rain garden:

Bud sites are developing nicely and as you can see, I got a variety of phenotypes.

At this point, the "Raspberry Pheno" is moved to the middle because it's the shortest and stockiest plant (It won't shade out the other plants).

gallery_10140_4417_1058488.jpg

 

gallery_10140_4417_2156226.jpg

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Front View:

You can clearly see "Pheno W" AKA "Extreme" Sativa Pheno in the front left corner. This one stretches a lot but it is actually a frosty delicious pheno that is worth keeping out of this 10 pack. :verrygood

gallery_10140_4417_1141243.jpg

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Did some more trimming underneath the canopy:

Chocolate Rain

:wOOt

FLOWER POWER

 

 

Here's a different angle:

gallery_10140_4417_2317189.jpg

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Front LEFT corner = "Extreme" Sativa Pheno, Front RIGHT corner = "Claw Pheno" (overfertilized),

Back LEFT corner = "Golfball Pheno," Back RIGHT corner = "Cantaloupe Haze Pheno,"

& MIDDLE = "Raspberry Pheno": :tu

gallery_10140_4417_1435951.jpg

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

"Raspberry Pheno" bud development:

Good crystal production.

"Cantaloupe Haze Pheno" AKA "Fat Bud Pheno"

Produces large buds and yields well.

"Extreme" Sativa Pheno:

Very tall, very frosty. :D

Man awesome pics, you will love Chocolate Rain.

 

Ended up with the pheno from the taste description by Esko. Cocoa Powder, maybe a hint of sour cream in there. The flavor is very very nice, the effect is really awesome, and I find myself smoking it all the time. Keeping ones jars filled with Chocolate Rain is very challenging, too hard not to roll some up and enjoy! :dribble:

You are humming right along, my friend. they look real nice and I'm sure you're happy happy happy right now!

 

:verrygood

 

My Chocolate Rain seedlings are looking good so far and it's so nice to have your pics to compare the different phenos to...I think it's great that you're using those big pots. I have seen monsters come out of 10gal pots.

 

I am very interested to see how this soil from Vermicrop works. I was given two bags for free at my local grow store just as I was transplanting and so far so good. I noticed that you used the vermifire and I saved that one because the guy told me it was too hot for the babies and that I should wait until they get bigger before using it. I used the milder mix first.

 

Yours look awesome so I'm psyched!

 

Great thread, thanks.

Thanks,

lol thanks though.

 

I like to post up full grow journals for most of the strains I do so there will be plenty of more strain diaries to come. STAY TUNED.

After this, I'll post up TGA's Chernobyl. After that, I'll probably post up Sannie's Herijuana.

yeah, i would like to here more about the rasberry pheno and the cantelope pheno.

 

i had what im guessing was a chocolope pheno this last grow that was predominantly lemon and pine and tai smelling and just a funk i can't describe also with a hint of dark chocolate. it was my favorite pheno as it was very speedy along with some good body. the hybrid pheno which seemed to be right in the middle structure wise had some fruit smells i couldnt put my finger on then dried and cured to a lemony dank fuelish smell with a hint of dark chocolate, but just a hint. i got more lemon out of mine this run. i would like to get the exact same tai pheno next time but am also looking forward to the more chocolate phenos.
