      New seed stash has arrived -



      For 45 notes Real Gorilla Seeds are givin a ten pack of ace regs as freebies an you get a choice an all. Ah went wae Honduras and a wee pack of zkittzo frae the RGS tae make it up tae 45. Could've done Panama wae free Honduras, but ah wanted tae try some of this new skittles stuff for a laugh, plus ah think it'll cross well wae ma grapefruit when it's skunked.

      Ah'd say if you want ace regs gear at a good price, hit up RGS - there's other freebies worth havin but the Honduras had been catchin ma eye for a while an the Panama is already a favourite in ma gaff. Well worth a punt.

      Now tae clear the schedule again for a few full pack f2 runs

        Got a few shots of the hazes outside the tent last night. Ah wis tryin tae see if there were any deficiencies - they look a bit yellow under the lights.





        ^ wee bit of yellowin on lower leaves





        ^ same wae this one

        Seem to be fine tbh. Wee bit of yellowin on lower leaves but the tops are still clawed so ah guess it's still just nitro tox. Cannae dae nothin about it at the mo, just need tae keep givin water an the odd bit of flower feed. Pot up will be this weekend or next - stretch has slowed down a fair bit now.

        I'll do zamaldelica shots at the weekend maybe. The boys are at different stages wae one about ready tae pop, one wae just a few pods and one in between. The big one is goin in the veg tent for a bit in the next few days then ah'll collect the pollen - it'll need savin for when the others are ready so as tae "open pollinate" and preserve the line.

        Similar range on the girls - one tall and quick flowerin, one short and slow. The big one is ma favourite so far.

            Right, here's a the zamaldelicas. First up girls -





            Quite a height difference between the two. No sure about phenos, ah'll have a look later but ah think the bigger is Malawi dom.

            Now the boys -







            Ah've done it in order of flowerin speed from slowest tae quickest. The first one is still in the flower tent goin slow and the other two are in the veg tent as they're near droppin pollen. Gonnae wait til ah see a few pods open then cut the tops an stick them in water over a plate tae collect.

            Smells are a mix of spicy, wee bit skunky wae some fruits.

            ETA - also planted a new sex bud as the first one got itsel twisted an died and a wee zkittzo. They'll be goin in same time as the quick critical and grapefruit

              Wee shot of the flower tent as she was Friday night



              Seems the haze are done stretchin already. Was hopin they'd get bigger but ah well. Gonnae pot them and the zamaldelica up the night and see if this pot up trick works.

              Got sexbud and zkittzo out the soil an all.

              Ma main issue at the moment is a heavy fungus gnat infestation in the veg tent. Ah'm worried about puttin new seedlings in if they're just gonnae get fucked so they've germed on the windae sill but they'll need tae go up soon now they're out the soil. Gonnae try gettin some cheap tights tae stick the pots in so the gnats cannae get tae the drainage holes, then keep the top two inch of soil dry wae bottom feedin. See if that does the trick.

                  A wee photo update frae the weekend.

                  The boys are stripped and dumped - took all the branches off and stuck then in water to collect the last of the pollen having already got a chunk frae the heads.

                  Here's a shot of each before killing them off -



                  First up is the tall one. Best smell on the stem, very powerful fruity, spicy, skunk.



                  Shortest one. No much tae say about him really, carrot smells on the stem.



                  Lastly the top boy. This is the one ah'd pick for line breeding if ah wasn't looking tae f2. Best structure, best flower formation, prolific wae the pollen and has a good smell, little bit menthol mebbe?



                  Pollen collected frae the tops. Already more than enough but am still doin the branches as one of the tops gave up and wilted after a day or two in the water cup. Some wee branches have an all so ah think they may be off the same boy. Ah didnae label as all ah wanted was a mix tae get all the genetics saved. Tbh though am pretty sure it's the wee one, but ah still want his pollen in there coz you never know - he could be hiding the best high or a rare Thai throwback.

                  Pollination will be this weekend - gonnae do zamal X zamal, haze X zamal, haze X skunk and mango catpiss X skunk. The others will be done when they flower.

                  Thanks for the tip pal. Ah've actually used it before an got mixed results plus this was an urgent disaster so ah just let them dry near to death and stuck up a fly paper, which seems tae have worked.

                  Ah feel guilty as ah hate using fly paper being vegan, so in future ah might get some diatomaceous earth and mix it in top and bottom of the pot tae have a preventative rather than a cure. Ah feel it's best tae encourage bugs tae fuck off before you need tae kill them.

                    Looking good Jock,should be some interesting plants from the X's.
                    Does the mango catpiss smell like the name?

                      Needs to be a clay like layer on top to break the breeding cycle, i also had good luck with hypoapsis (sp) predatory mites.

                        Well ah say mango but my girlfriend and her sister both said cat piss so it's a compromise

                        It's definitely a less common scent, when burnin it's a bit like some charas ah toked in Amsterdam. A mate of mine said it didn't even smell much like weed tae him - but he was upwind.

                          Ah-ha in that case ah might get some in for future. The gnats have definitely stunted the seedlings which is shite as am working tae a timetable and want tae shut the tent down over winter tae avoid the cold that killed me last year.

                          Think ah'll need tae do the zkittzo and sex bud pretty much 12-12 from seed in a few weeks once they can get a pot up.

                          Just had tae pot up the quick critical as well - she was all stretched and pale lookin and the roots are just pure shite. Nothin like they normally are, barely there at all tbh. Gutter.

                            Just a wee tent shot from last night. Ah've no had much time with the plants lately an the loft is fuckin roastin so ah don't want tae be up there much at the moment.

                            Also had tae unplug the hps for now due tae the high temps - got up tae 38 the other day so it's led only til it calms down a bit.



                            Front right is the smaller haze, left the smaller zamaldelica. Behind that with the bent stem is the bigger zam, far left is the taller haze, also bent and last in the back right corner is mango catpiss.

                            All apart from the mango had a wee dust of zam pollen last night. Ah'll repeat it in the same branches again over the next week tae make sure it takes. Skunk dusting will be later on in the week when the mango has more hairs on the go.

                            Found a wee pollen sack on my biggest zamal an all. Bit of a gutter but the zamal is known tae chuck hermies and the Thai in this cross cannae help (pretty sure the big one is a Thai dominant pheno as it just keep stretching. Ah'll get better shots soon outside the tent.)
                            Dunno if I've got it soon enough no tae have fucked up the crossin but there's fuck all ah can do now.

                              Just went tae check if the zamals needed more pollen and they've both hermied.

                              Ah dunno how ah feel tbh. For a start this bit of the seed run is fucked an all the f2s ahve made aren't worth keepin. The boys were pretty solid though so maybe the haze crosses will be ok. But both haze an both zamaldelicas are covered in brown hairs so I'll be gettin at least a seed or two per bud. Not the worst thing in the world but still fuckin annoyin.

                              Ah could've assumed it was an early release on a boy but ah also found a wee banana on the smaller zamal so that's one on each. Couldn't find any more though so it may be the boys, especially as the seeds ah found on the two zamal were pretty far along. No seeds on the haze though.

                              Ah fuck it, ah don't know. This bit is fucked though.

                              And the skunk pollen doesn't seem to have taken on the MCP. Fuck all this growing shit man.

                                Right. I'm back.

                                Honestly guys, it's been a fucker of a month. The fungus gnats went haywire an then ah found webbin on the veg plants - the fuckin borg! Almost killed everythin.

                                Luckily ah caught it early an two weeks of sprayin with cayenne pepper spray has kept them at bay - no seen any more webs or leaf damage since ah started. The zkittzo was heavy stunted by it tho so she's tae veg longer. The grapefruit went intae flower last night an the sexbud an quick critical are gettin a pot up the day.

                                In the flower tent things are no great but no as bad as the veg. Mango cp got underfed a bit which means ah'll take a knock on yield. It's ma ain fault for bein a bit less focussed than usual but still annoyin. Zamaldelica both have N tox an the haze are takin forever an a day tae do their thing.

                                Here's some photies from the other night









                                So aye, N tox. Ma personal cross tae bear coz ah can never seem tae get it sorted - always end up needin tae feed for other nutrients an N is in all the flower feeds too. Just gonnae keep them on plain water as much as possible really. Hazes are getting fuck all nutrient anyway.

                                Good news is nae more nanas. Plenty of seedin but as so many of them are developed already, am now pretty sure it was an early release by the boys a few month back. Seed savin is back on.

                                Sadly the mango cp didn't take the skunk pollen at all. Still gonnae try on the grapefruit et al but ah think it's just too old.
