Madberry & Madchem

Recommended Posts

Hi folks..

Here are some pics of my 2 Madchem and 2 Madberry plants 8 days in flowering. Been using Sannie's buffertabs and bacto + guano for 2 years now and it has made growing pretty easy. Madberry I've grown 2 times before and it is in my top2 strains I've grown..hoping for purple very frosty pheno or green juicy one ..:P MadChem has been little dissapointment so far..very slow rooting power and pretty weak looking plants too..couple seeds also died after sprouting. Then again I'm used to sativa hybrid growing vigour from ace past couple of years so that could be reason why they feel slow..but Sannie's gear usually shines in the end ;). I tried to do some kind of mainlining for 8 tops..this resulted once again in overcrowded tent :D but they didnt stretch to the top of the tent, which is nice.  They are in 25l pots under 315w solistek cmh. I took one trash bag full of sun leaves few days ago ( first time doing that ) ...since the canopy was so crowded with leaves, I hope the light can penetrate few lower budsites now also...

Smallest Madchem started 1,5weeks behind others and also fucked up transplanting

Sorry first time I try to post something with pics in this forum..doesn't work like some platforms I'm used to ..so some pics came out several times and some are in imgur links perhaps?

WIll try to post some when they progress and with better succcess ...peace

 

E. and for clarification Madchems are in the front and Madberries are in the back...right now I'm thinking about ordering a new fan for my veg tent and sprouting some more Madberry..or perhaps Killing fields or Blueberry indica x heribei..time will tell so stay tuned

Your plants look great.  I have grown Mad Berry three times.  Good strain.  Mad Chem is growing for me now in the seedling stage.  My first time trying it.

Looking very nice how long have you vegged them for? 

 

Hi, I vegged them pretty long.. Madberries were started around first or second week of august and Madchems week and 2 later. So around 7-8 weeks for madberries. Mainlining slows things down a lot and this time the rooting power was very weak, until they got to final containers with buffer tabs then I saw huge improvement.

@rlsmooth -- looking nice. Tight for 8 days flower.

What have you run from ACE? Pics??

 

Hi, and thank you :D I started counting when all had showed hairs, which was pretty much 1 week from light flip.

 

I've grown Bubba Hash, Tikal, Panama, Golden Tiger, and Destroyer from CBG. I changed my computer recently, but I post in icmag with same nick so some pics there in my couple topics and in topics related to those strains. Bubba Hash is great indica and what I consider in my top2 strains, from sativas I liked Golden Tiger most ..but I've only grown like single specimens or 2 at time so not too much info about different phenos.. Destroyer can be very good if u get the right pheno..and Panama is dreamy daytime sativa, a lot similarities with Destroyer.

Been thinking about running Killing Fields and GT or Destroyer together at some point, to see how the sativa qualities compare. I expect alot better taste and aromas from KF, but I've understood there is a slight indica touch in the effect.

All plants progressing nicely during their third week of flowering( since pistils). Stretchier MB got little brown leaf burn at one spot, could be combination of too strong soil+ very close to CMH.  Peace..

Sad news, bigger madchem had gone completely hermie. I almost never check for balls or nanners..but this time went to check if any plant needs watering and noticed that this plant looks weird..well took it out and found out almost all top nuggets had serious nanners stacked on em. Not gonna grow this strain again..hopefully it didnt seed out my madberries too bad :ss such a waste of time. Sannie could give us a little more intel about the strain and selections like he used to back in the day..now u just find some strain pop up in shop, and really know nothing about it .

Hi,

Fat buds inc. Quality is sheit, can't remove most of the plants from tent and never have time to take photos when lights are off. MadChem has suprised me by forming seriously fat buds, real surprise considering this was alot behind and experienced some mistreatment in veg and repotting. Think I finally but enough guano in soil :D 2-3 weeks left max for purple mb+ madchem, bigger madberry 3-4 propably..gotta cut em at same time, coz have to dry em in tent so gotta find some compromise.

Madchem, very good structure this would be optimal for my setup.

Other Madchem started pushing bananas too. Lucky it's almost 7 weeks, watered it yesterday. So gonna check pistils and cut it if it looks ok.. :( E. Inspected the plant with a loop...only found few nanas on top buds.. I'm hoping to give it atleast a week, saw no amber and hoping for that kick ass stoned effect as advertised. Madberry red berry/perfume pheno should be ready at the same time..

try to remove the nanners with tweezers for the next 2weeks until chopp.

Yes, lost mine gotta buy new ones, carefully removed em with finger tips. Didnt look like they spread any pollination to my fingers...so could be infertile? Heard of some fem crosses pushing nanas towards the end. The earlier was a freak for sure and not worth growing and taking a risk as it had shitloads of em..gotta keep on eye on this and keep removing em if they are a few. The nuggets are rock hard...never grown a strain with rock hard buds like that. Or maybe nutrition was  right this time.. smell is mostly pinene/ caramello like hash..kinda reminds me of some afghani strains.. have a great weekend!

most times nanners are due to stress or too close to heat source, full on hermie I'd be worried about, but a few nanners shouldn't do much.

Most times they are sterile or show up too late to pollinate anyway.

Good grow show though.

In any Chem strain there’s a good chance of getting hermies with even small amounts of stress, this is common knowledge, so anytime yours growing Chems and Chem heavy crosses always keep one eye open.

Thanks for the tip! Only been reading about landraces past years so crosses like chem are pretty new to me .

I´ve had 5 phenos of mad chem this year, all but one got nanners, and all after week 6 or 7, i kept picking and caring for them until they turned, The stone was in the body with a clear mind.And I didnt really feel it was my cup of tea, I like a bit more energy in my Indicas... But as luck would have it,  I always take clones before flowering and gave the same phenos a second chance. The resulting plants was vigorous and were all taken at 7 and 8 weeks when the first nanners appeared (I ignored the trichomes  this time). And in these plants I could finally enjoy the Real Deal Body Energizing Diesel Stone, very potent!

I have two Mad Chems curing in Jars right now from new seeds, one of them threw a few nanners in week 7 and got cut (heri leaning pheno) The other, a more diesel leaning plant was nanner free and chopped at week 9.

 

Im planning on flowering the clones and taking them early to see if I can still find that Diesel Power I want in my Garden...

Here's some Mad Chem grown outdoor this year. Picture was taken at 45 days (September 10th) Will note that where I live we had 5 weeks of rain... average for my area is 4.3" for the month of September. We had that per week and some storms offering up that much. Cut September 20th at 55 days. Could have gone another 7 to 10 days.

No intersex traits observed but would have liked to take them to 9 weeks +/- but at 7.5 weeks did not find a nanner.

Lost maybe 3 ounces to mold on 3 lbs.

Seeds were sprouted May 9th and vegged under 300 watts led and placed outside June 9th.

I'm 6'4" tall and that's a 12" blade without handle. 

A real producer. With great vigor. Flowers sets fast when the days get shorter. 

I noticed many Heri traits in this plant especially in the high department.
