For some reason, I rarely grow fems. That changes this grow. There will be a repeat performance of my cuts of Peyote Pancake, my insomnia cure, and Lemon Sunrise, my eye-opening strain, but the rest are new to me.

I bought a pack of Sannie's Sugar Punch way back when it came out, years ago, but never grew any. I cracked one seed and planted it outdoors, a few years ago, and it was eaten by an eastern cottontail rabbit. There are very few of those in my tent, these days, so it's probably safe to try again. I have two seeds left, as it seems I gave a couple away over the years. Both will be cracked.

Bebop and Golden Goat are Irie fems. Both should be sativa dominant hybrids. Golden Goat is supposed to be a very popular strain in Colorado dispensaries, and is from an accidental cross of Island Sweet Skunk x (Hawaiian sativa x Romulan). Bebop is a cross between Blueberry Cookies and Arise, which I'm guessing might be a little more to the indica side than Golden Goat.

Planet of the Grapes is an Ethos strain, which is a breeder I know nothing about and I know no one who has grown an Ethos strain, but there are some pretty powerful strains that I've tried from dispensaries over the last couple of years that had the Ethos name attached to them. So this is a role of the dice. Planet of the Grapes is supposed to be a heavy, stony, indica dom. 

So that's that. My old (Oh, must be about 8 months old by now — a Methuselah plant) Peyote Pancake cut will be going in again, and a Lemon Sunrise plant from the last grow will also be repeating.

This is going to be organic soil. I will wait on running Octos until I have a few more keeper plants I want a lot of weed from. If I just grow a bunch of Peyote Pancake and Lemon Sunrise, my love for variety will cause me to whine and nobody wants that.

When there are some exciting, action photos of the plants to offer, I'll post more. In the meantime, the traditional posting of pics of seed packets:

There are a few other plants from my last grow that I'm still considering keeping, and those are the Killer Cookies girls. I keep going back and forth on which I like best, between the most GSC-leaning and most Killer Queen-leaning cut. KQ might win, but I think I have to keep the GSC leaner, just because it has trichomes on its trichomes.

I was going to try and work Sannie's Motherlode in there, but I didn't order the seeds in time. Oh well.

Golden Goat is one of my favorites, awesome terps and a great daytime weed.

Seed viability update:

As expected, the two Irie strains, recently purchased, had 100% germination rates.

2 of 3 Planet of the Grapes seeds sprouted and 1 of the 2 Sugar Punch seeds sprouted, so I soaked another PotG and BeBop and both of those sprouted.

Today, one week later, the other Sugar Punch sprouted. So the official tally:

3 Golden Goats (100%)

3 Be Bops (100%)

3 Planet of the Grapes (75%)

2 Sugar Punch (100%)

The SP must be 7 or 8 years old. When one didn't sprout, I didn't think much of it, except I figured keeping it soaking in paper towels might be worthwhile. I did not expect to see a root this morning. it will be going in soil in another hour or so. 

That leaves space for only one more plant. It will be a race to see whether Peyote Pancake or Lemon Sunrise roots first. (Since PotG is described as a heavy indica, Peyote Pancake might have already lost the race.)

Not waiting for preflowers before I flip to 12/12 will be a new experience. No SOG on stilts this time around.

Update: I just got word my payment made it to Sannie's Shop. A little too late, I think, to get a Motherlode plant into this grow. I'm hoping for one green and one purple SP.
