Selecting moms and maintaining in small space

Recommended Posts

Hi all it’s been a bit 

the idea is to have a stable Of 8 moms , select keepers that we like and help to keep me sane 

reasons to keep

pain relief, taste ,  of course high not just sleepy time but happy weed as well , smell , and weather it still available , and pollen chuckin potential . 
 

I feel 8 different strains  to choose from is a great verity and a lot of potential 

if for some reason I get tired of one or don’t quite make the cut I’ll  cull the mom start a new selection from the vault ( this way I can weed out the bunk ) 

I only have limited space so moms will 

live in a 24 x 24 x 60 tent in 5in x 5in square pots in pro mix 

Feeding a 1/1/1 teaspoon per gallon of I jacks ( tip from jet so they grow slower , and of course remain healthy 

as well as a mycorrhizae added I recently got Orca amazing root development 

the big issues is what is worthy to go in to the big tent ( Octopot tent ) 

at this moment I have 4 Octopots going two I’ll keep as moms and 2 it’s there last 

when the moms get too big I take 2 clones of each and once rooted I’ll cull the moms ( it hurts to do it but no space )

also as to not to waste a run in the Octopots I now am doing a micro- grow  flowering to began soon ) in  a small 30in x 30in x 30in tent which is my cloning tent  

once the clones are established I’ll select the better for a mom and flower the other for evaluation 

so that’s the scoop 

let me know what you think and all comments welcome 

Selection is as follows 

atf x nl5  @Indican

blessfullsunset  & tin foil hat by greenrebel farms Motas new line 

zoidfume @santero there’s 2 females To Selene from 

OHAG  it’s jet cross of gogi OG x amnesia haze there’s three females to choose from 

papa’s punch ( mine own cross )

steel shack x skunk 1 cross  

 

in the Octopots are 

atf x nl5  right side front 

shiva dawg left front 

lemon gas  right side back 

holy grail kush x gogi OG  left rear

Looks good! 

I like to keep my mommies short and sweet, but most of them get tossed after a while due to boredom and or heavy contamination,  which unfortunately just goes with the time in the case of my momsroom. Guess i am just a dirty mofo that treats his mothers like shit!  Except for my Amnesia Haze mom! She has been with me for quite a while now,  traveled  from city to city and country to country. Yes, she even traveled over the ocean and went to Texas where she moved in with some pothead cowboy that don't do much more than shooting guns and go to pot.  Perhaps i treaded her like shit too, but she is loyal like a dog!  

To cut it short: she is the only strain for me that has proven to be worth the trouble of sustaining her. So my advice to you is: find the cowboy, get the mother and toss the others!

Hay bro I did get some  Exotic bird seed of a cross of the cowboys  he used that very same thing 

and 3 different ones are in the clone area the OHAG = orange gogi x amnesia haze :rolleyes2:

Could it be lol:whistling

as far as moms go as it’s gets boring it’s gone 

so I am looking for those magical 4

to 8 special ones to stay or rotate out 

peace

Finally new selection for the next run 

OHAG ( a cross from a friend from Texas) 

blissfuffsunset  greenrebelfarms  

zoidfume from our very own @santero  

Novacane  f 2 from Motarebel  

blissfullsunset , papas punch & steelshack x skunk 1   Clones had to be flowered to sex 

I believe papas punch will be a girl and by the looks of the 2 steelshack I’ll get one each woo hoo 

the male steelshack I’ll let pollinate the little tent which is in flower with small clones in solo cups of everything I was running this year so there should be some interesting crosses for me to play with 

this is a random selection just for shits and giggles I’ve never ran the steelshack before  so we shell see 

I think I need two more moms to fill the tent I’ll try again with tin foil hat greenrebelfarms once again to get a mom and I think LUI by sinister 

peace

Up potted the moms with a blend oh pro mix perlite and happy frog and vermiculite 

I feed with urban farms vegetable food and very happy but I need to slow them down a bit so I’m switching to jacks 20/20/20 ( as recommended by a friend jet ) at a teaspoon per gallon) watering every 3 days or so ( when dry) 

plants in solo cups have yet to sex so I started them from unrooted clones at 12/12 

they should turn anytime soon 

this pic is shive dawg in a solo cup my own solo cup challenge lol 

thensmall tent in flower 

them mom tent

An asshat like we had here was jacking with members, I stood up for them, like I did here, got a time out. Pretty mundane stuff, nothing special or exciting, lol !!

that's the problem with getting involved instead of letting mods deal with trolls/eejits.
then they CAN't help it but have to deal with ALL the people that actively participated.

it's very sad and especially hard when it hits good people like f.e. jetdro :(
one can only hope they (also) learn from their mistakes and don't get involved altogether.

anyhoo, the plants look really great, papa :)
i am falling more and more in love with octopots.

the more i see them perform, the more i am convinced about
those being pretty much the best you can put your plants in.

I feel the same, he was just reacting to the BS being put forth, and should not have been given a time out with the rest. He was only reacting to them.

Edited by santero
he might have meant well, but i bet that was the problem = him 'reacting' ... he should just let mods know instead of joining in, imho.

The moms have been up potted all but 2 

when I was feeding the flowering tent I gave the moms a shot of bloom nutrients and they loved it they just looked happier and they sprouted a bit  
also the mini rose bush has come back from the dead ( the wife can kill any plant you give her it’s a talent she acquired and damn good at it :rofl

I’ve got the next 2 runs planned 

maybe 1 new addition I have a few surprises up my sleeve
