I thought I'd start a separate thread for the Black Afghani so it is easier to find for those only interested in it.

This USC creation is pure old school indica that spoke loudly to me when it was released. I was lucky enough to grab a pack before it was gone.

I started 3 seeds which all popped in 2 days and were then potted in 16 oz. cups. After 10 days they were ready to up-pot to 1 gallon pots and that is where I start this report. The 3 BA's are in the back with a couple of saxo's TulaBerries in front.

Fast forward 11 days and the BA's are growing like weeds. Big fat leaves and tight internode spacing on these babies.

Jump another 9 days ahead and it's time to up-pot again, this time to 2 gallon pots. I am able to determine that BA #1 is female but the other 2 aren't showing yet. The BA's are the 3 on the right side below.

A week later and I up-potted BA #1 to a 5 gal. pot and wait for the other two to show sex. It looks like one of them is male but not sure about either yet so I put them to 12's yesterday to hurry the process. I'll keep the girl in veg for another week or so when I'll have more space in the flower room.

So, that catches you up on this grow so far. I'll have an update in a few days, cya then.

Great looking plants Beach!

All three Black Afghani's look very similar... almost like clones. This looks to be a well bred cross.
Saxo's TulaBerries are a good addition to this grow... another well bred cross.

Little plants with fat leaves is a great indication of what's to come... and I can't wait to watch them grow up with you and everyone else!

Back with a quick update on the BA's.

It looks like I have another girl :jump: unless my eyes deceive me. I'll know for sure real soon.

The girl I'm sure of has the veg area all to herself and she is diggin' all that LED light. She is (and the other 2) 32 days above ground and about 14" tall. BA #2, the one I think is female is still in a #2 pot and only about 10" tall. I'll up-pot her once confirmed female.

Hard to tell from the pics but there are a bunch of internodes under all that leaf.

Here's the likely girl...

And, here's the dude.

Gonna give the vegging BA another few days before she goes to 12's cause I'm not sure she'll get much stretch. I'll up-pot the likely girl when I'm sure and leave her in the flower room. She won't be as big but that's OK.

I'll take several cuts from BA #1 before she goes to 12's.

That's it for now, thanks for stopping by. :tu

I've got a beast about 2 weeks in flower and it looked/s like all of yours.

I'm seeing some great stability so far with this line.

Curious how much stretch you are seeing with yours?

Not much strech at all yet. And i don't expect much based on what I'm seeing.

I'll take a pic soon .

She's been veging for weeks tho.

And no color. I'm under MH now but will switch to HPS in a day or two.

I don't plan to intentionally lower temps but they will be finishing in late November or early December so we might have some cold nights then.
I am not really concerned if they turn black or even dark, I'm more interested in the pure Afghani smoke.

Turns out who I thought was a dude was in fact a girl so all 3 of the Black Afghani are female. :)

It took 6 weeks, 5 days of which were spent in the flower room for BA's # 2 & 3 to show sex. BA #1 on the other hand showed after only 4 weeks in veg. As you look at these 3 in the pics below you can see how much difference 2 weeks more veg time makes.

BA #1 was up-potted to a #5 pot after 4 weeks in veg and was then given another 2 weeks veg time. BA's # 2 & 3 remained in #2 pots until they were sexed at 6 weeks, then they were up-potted to #5's and remained in the flower room.

Black Afghani #1 @ 9 days 12's

Black Afghani #2 @14 days 12's

Black Afghani #3 @ 14 days

As you can see these will respond well to timely up-pots and a longer veg time. Some differences could be phenotype related but I have a feeling this cross is pretty consistent trait wise.

Some use of spreaders is helpful to push the lower and mid branches away from the stalk to open it up some.

So, now we wait and see what they turn into. Cya next time. :wave:
