The Lovely Marlene Dietrich
Hi Guys, been wanting to get this thread started but the star alignment just hasn’t been right.
I should have known it was going to be a rough start when I went to pick out seeds from my two regular seed strains. I used OSG’s chart to select seeds that had a good chance of being females, though I dont know if I did, they all looked very similar. In any case I went to select one w my tweezers and…Boink! that sucker flew across the room and I heard it land but who the heck knows where LOL (incredibly enough I fricken found it later) you cant make this sh_ _ up.
Started dropping beans around Sept 14th but only Blue Dream & Jack H made it. Had a hard time getting my other strains going so its a bit of a mess in that respect.
I have/had a couple of wild cards in this grow, one was the BD since I only had 1 seed and did not know if it would germinate. The other two remaining wild cards is that Night Nurse (the Crime Fighting Nurse) and Ortega are both regular seeds so I dropped two of each but I had a hard time getting them going especially NN.
Only time will tell if they will be females, if they both are that will present its own set of issues.
Not really digging the uncertainty of regular seeds, really like my fems.
Objectives: My main one being that I am going for variety as opposed to quantity hence I am emulating some of Purps short veg techniques and as suggested by dbnr32 I’m using 3 gal pots instead of my regular 5 gals ones
Definitely like the smaller pots, much easier to move which was a bit of an issue in my last grows since some got to be big ass girls (which of course I like, dont get me wrong)
To me they are all very special strains but I will be catering specifically to GDP she’s my queenie (for now).
Blue Dream will get her butt hacked back if she gets out of line, not even sure I will like sativa doms but I am curious but her, she and Jack H are really taking off. More about how to tame them later.
I will be cloning all of em since I’m doing small runs of them and flower a second batch. If Night Nurse & Ortega bear me girls I will keep them going for a while & maybe even put the clones in 5 gal pots and fill up my pantry w them.
The last unexpected addition is I’m growing my first Auto…Norhtern Lights woo hooo!!! thanks to my fellow enablers (you know who you are) for talking me into it, it took a lot of persuasion LOL! been wanting to grow that one for a while now
At a future point, probably when the clones go to flower I have at least 4 more strains that I want to grow since I also do not intend to grow a Damn Thing next summer, so I gotta get my Ya Yas out on this grow cause by the end of june I’m shutting it down…till the fall ;o)
OK, enough of that long winded intro, lets get to the Candidates…

Here’s the crew as it stands right now, they got some really nice thick main stems. its the lighting
Got some slight spots on my JH & Ortega (the uppr right one). Been doing micro feeds of Less than 1/8 tsp Recharge & Mega crop, and1/4- 1/2 tsp cal mag. Anyone know what might be causing this?
And guess who made it to the party just in time, my NLA, just hatched this morning, waiting on the second seed
