      Hello MallardDuck , good to see you growing the Zacatecas. Too bad about the mould. Did the cuttings root? if so you may be able to save them with a good cleaning.
      Hopefully, you get your project on track. It's too bad I just stumbled on your thread now. I think we are close and I would have taken some of those mothers or cuttings off your hands.
      I have a pack and hope to get to them maybe this winter.
      Love the dogs and pics of flowers.

      Best of luck with the rest of the grow.

      Peace GG

          Hi MallardDuck, sorry to hear about the mould problems :( Is it affecting your indoor clones or outdoor plants ?

          Btw, Luna is so cute

            Hey Dubi!

            Luckily they are just affecting my indoor clones. I threw away all the clones except the rooted Congo as I would really like to make some CongoxZacateca seeds and I don't have any Congo plants anymore to take a cut off ( I gave it to a friend to flower). So I took new cuts off the 2 males and 2 females I have left, and plan to flower out the 2 males and the one female Zacatecas in Solo cups and cut back the other Zacateca mother and flower her out. I really haven't been the most organized this year... but hopefully I can finally get this show on the road! I will get pictures from my friend... I have a feeling he might underestimate the stretch on these ladies. Anyone know what I can expect stretch wise from the Zacatecas?

            PS Luna may be cute but she is a little rapscallion! I caught her digging the dirt out one of my autoflower plants! She almost made it to the bottom of the pot by the time I caught her... I could see that nice healthy root system scattered on the ground. Here she is trying not to look guilty!

              HI everyone,

              Sorry life has been busy... I haven't done much updating of this log and honestly I have just been keeping up with my gardening. The plant I tossed outside is flourishing... I have begun taking it inside my garage before sundown to try to initiate flower. I would hate to see this beautiful plant succumb to the weather at the end of the year.

              I still have no roots on the new clones and the female Zacateca is looking rather unhappy after a rough transplant where I had to deal with a seriously rootbound girl. I am confident she will recover though.

              Luna is still a little rogue and growing at about the same rate as my plants šŸ˜…. All she does is eat, play, sleep and grow... a good life. If reincarnation is real sign me up to be mans best friend!

                  It's raspberry season! We love raspberries of all colours here... I found out Luna is a little berry hound. I have to keep her out of the berry patch or she would happily eat it all. Here are some Yellow Raspberries I just picked, they are a little sweeter than the red ones.

                  The lone female Zacateca has recovered very nicely in my tent after the harsh transplant and being very rootbound. It was sad for a week or so, but it took off now. I really need to switch to 12/12 asap lest it overgrow then tent. But my clones seem to be taking forever to root and some have wilted. I have two healthy males in the tent as well. I am debating cutting them way back to make room for the female to flower out and just to leave a small branch or two for pollen collection. Would very rootbound males be able to produce pollen after being cut back to like 25% of what they were? If anyone has any experience with this let me know.

                  These are the two males... I am a caregiver for my father right now and sometimes between work and caring for him I forget to water... they look a little droopy but they will be fine.

                  And here are my sorry looking clones :(

                  So yeah if anyone has any advice about how much I can prune the males back to make space for the female and still get some pollen let me know. Cheers

                    I would cut the main shot ... two or three pairs of side branches should be enough to make more than enough pollen.

                      Subbed! I missed out on the Zacatecas unfortunately, I missed them both times they were offered but Iā€™m very interested in the line. Will be great to see how they do for you.

                      Luna is beautiful!

                          So some good news. My clones have started rooting. I have 2 males and 1 female that made it so far. This means I have switched my tent over to 12/12 and we are cooking with fire! In the tent I have 1 Zacateca (f) 1 Congo and 2 Zacateca (M). It feels really good to switch the tent over to flowering.... it feels like it has been a while. Anyways here are some random pictures from the last few days. Ill get a tent photo update this weekend.
