Hi Guys, figured its time to start a new journal since I’m no longer strictly chasing amber per se, I’ll let the other thread come to its natural conclusion.
Besides a good high I have no particular aspirations as to what I’ll be growing or for what. At some point in the fall I would like to grow some Laughing Buddha (thanks @blackthumbbetty for the suggetion) since I’ve always liked a smoke that makes me laugh for no particular reason
Lets get to it…
I’m skipping a few strains since I dont want to hunt for pictures so I’ll start w what’s cooking at the moment.
Was fortunate enough to be gifted an Arcata Skunk seed from @Missiles for which I am very thankful for
She popped out of the ground sept. 29th and was flipped dec. 28th. She’s beastly in the best possible way, around 40" tall from the top of the soil/pot.
Had some trouble getting a God’s Gift seed to germinate and finally got one to take Oct 7th, thankfully she caught up w the other girls. Due to logistics Arcata and God were flipped at the same time, so they have a flower “buddy” as they make their journey through life together. Arcata on left God’s gift on right.
I should mention that this grow is in 100% coco along w/ Jack’s nutes, and 2 gallon pots w one exception which I’ll get to in a bit. While I like the results of using 100% they do require to be watered more frequently. Next round I’ll do 75% coco and see how that goes.
The stems are the thickest I’ve gotten from any medium, cant argue w results
From left to right , Cannaventure’s Blackberry Raspberry Kush, Arcata Skunk & Pure Fruity Pebbles.
You can see above that Fruity P ( ) is not nearly as big and robust as the other two, might be genetics. She has been a bit delicate so bear that in mind @GreenJewels @Gremmall if you get her going. I am incredibly excited to try all three of em in the near future.
Next batch…Arcata (prior to defoliation) Gray Skull, Gray Skull (got two different Phenos) & DT aka Durban x Thai
Would also like to thank our friends @CoyoteCody for the Gray Skull seeds and @Not2SureYet for the DT seed. I am Psyched to check these gals out as well, Thank you guys for the seed, hope I can do em Justice… Next two pictures Gray Skull 1, GS2, DT mother & DT1 clone.
The DT mother is coming out in a few days, she’s done!
Lets elaborate on both strains a bit, lets start w Gray Skull, I’ve never come across two different phenos before so this was surprising when I first noticed it. I actually thought GS1 had some sort of blight as her change happened seemingly over night! GS1 has these gorgeous Purple hues while her sister does not, they’re both lovely. These ladies are in 1 gallon pots and just as tall as Arcata.
Below… Durban x Thai, this cant be anything but Fun! so much so that I was able to secure 5 clones off of her, she was above ground August 18th so she and her buddies have a head start over some of the other gals. She’s beautiful and seems to be finishing at the same pace as some of the indicas that I dropped around the same time, how can you not like that!
From left to right. DT1 (clone) Mother in middle and DT2 which I flipped this past saturday.
Thanks again @Not2SureYet, very excited to take her out for a ride in a few weeks
Some of the other gals in the flower tent…Purple Kush & good ol Purple Urkle!!!
PK (Aug 18th) is almost ready, maybe a week at most, going for good solid clouds w whatever amber manifests. PU (Sept 27th) was flipped Dec 5th so still some time to go. Very excited about these two and thanks to @Not2SureYet for bringing Purple Kush to my attention for insomnia
This has been an ongoing grow since I dropped 5 strains on the 4th of July,Amnesia, Blue Amnesia, blueberry, cheese & blue cheese. More about those another day. I messed up the Amnesias, they were autos and left them in the solo cup too long and started to flower. @Dbpooper called it and urged me to transplant asap, I did, to a two gal pot but to no avail. The yield was 1 mason jar each w the blue amnesia having a little more material. They’re great strains so I’ll do em over again one day.
The blue cheese plant which was an auto took her sweet ass time to finish, she was huge. Her, cheese & blue cheese, blueberry & 9lb hammer are curing as we speak, have yet to try them
Enough of the sidetrack…
The last two that are still in the tent though they’re about to get evicted are ILGM Afghan and Ogre by Pacific seedbank. I dont know much about Pacific and am a little skeptical since they seem to have everything, even some of the more esoteric stuff. That being said, Ogre is a gorgeous stocky solid little plant so, who am I to complain or say otherwise. She looks heavy and mean.
Afghan on left, Ogre. Afghan has ridiculous frosting on her, I’ll get some pictures tomorrow if I get a chance/remember lol. The affie is basically done but is taking her sweet time as well. they’re both getting yanked any day now.
Alright my friends, I’ll leave you w some family shots as I am running out of gas here.
@Not2SureYet the last three picture above, that’s DT2, in transition
Thank you friends for stopping by and have a great evening!
