    D puts Caliente Kong & Alaskan Thunder Kong through thr ringer

    Hey everybody, my name is D, and i'll be your host for this venture . D.U.D.E was ballsy enough to send me 5 each of Caliente Kong, Alaskan thunder kong, sativa loco, and border haze to test. This thread will be just for the kongs. I'll be doing another test with sativa loco and border haze at a later date. Seeds all arrived safe and well packaged. All were healthy dark brown, and passed the pinch test. I dropped them in water for ~36 hours, then planted in beer cups of pure coco. 8/10 broke ground after ~30 hours. Still waiting on the other two to see if you'll show their heads. Only been given tap water so far, but as they dry up I'll start giving nutes @ 2g per gal. of jacks hydro + 2g per gal. cal-nit + 1ml per gal. roots excellerator + 5ml per gal. SM90.

    Not much to look at yet, but here they are at 4 days old.

      Really glad to have them go through your garden bro..
      I know they will need to be worthy to make it through the hoops
      yet im confident given what im seeing in my garden that they will hold their own...

      Im going to really enjoy seeing the 2 kongs done next to each other... Gives a golden opportunity to see the influence from the different pops...

      Work em hard brother D...
      Im pulling up for the long chill and good vibes..

        I don't know about favorites. I told D.U.D.E before he accepted me as a tester I'd grow whatever he sent, but I also made sure he understood I wouldn't show them any more mercy than I do anything else. If you've been following along you know I kill perfectly healthy plants in veg just because they are showing what I consider weak/undesirable characteristics. Honestly I think he has a lot of brass for sending me four relatively untested strains to play with . I'm a hard critic, and these will be going head to head with ten other strains from established breeders. Should be a good show

            I guess I'm not the only one who kills plants by the handful. Purposely of course

            Out of my last seed pop, 33/34 came up. of those, 22 were female (some were fem seeds)... of those 22, 10 made it into my current donut. And of those 10, 3 are small, being used to fill the gaps and 3 I would consider "keepers.." And even then, they arent perfect. There are 4 strains in there, and I feel like I would need 30 beans + of each to be happy with a keeper.

            I've come to find...the shitty ones just arent worth their space

                  Alright been a couple weeks, time for an update. After ~2 weeks I got 8 of 10 to germinate (first 8 within 30 hours of planting), the last two just didn't have it in them . This leaves us with 4 of each strain to test, fingers crossed for females . As soon as they germinated I started feeding jacks hydro @ 2g per gal. + cal-nit @ 2g per gal. + roots excel @ 1ml per gal. + SM90 @ 5ml per gal. with every watering. There is some slight damage from them drying up a bit too much between visits, but they'll bounce back in no time.

                  Here they are as of Saturday



                  Updates will become more frequent and detailed as things progress, and there's more to share .

                    Be happy it's only 30 . I'm popping hundreds of seeds just to see what varieties I want to go back and pop a few hundred of to find my keeper. So far bog's sour bubble and sour strawberry kush, 40amps berry sour cream, and classic seeds blueberry are holding potential slots. Killing plants is partly out of necessity in my case, but experience has taught me that weak plants 99% of time don't produce keepers. So with that in mind it doesn't hurt my feelings to cull the herd so to speak.

                        Been a couple more weeks, time for another update . 7 of 8 have been transplanted to 1 gal. bags, and moved to the ebb/flow table. The last one will be transplanted later this week.



                        The Alaskan Thunder Kong (from here on out will be referred to as ATK), seems much more vigorous than the Caliente Kong ("""as CK). Though two of the CK are having some weird issue that kind of reminds me of the mutations found in the blueberry lines, mixed with what looks like the burn marks from spraying with the lights on. Any thoughts on this DUDE? Here's a couple pictures of the damage. The lesser damaged one looked much worst, but has somewhat of grown out of it. The other has just gotten worse over the last two weeks. PH and EC are perfect, verified via slurry test. They have gotten exactly the same treatment as every other seedling (all of the rest are in perfect health, including the ATK's and other 2 CK's). Nothing has been sprayed on them, no pest issues, nothing. Just wondering if this is an unknown X factor, or if it's potentially a genetic trait?





                        I will say the roots look good on all of them! This was a pretty typical sight during transplant. Even the sickly CK had a nice thick root system.

                          Im going to go out on a limb here as say it's a sign of
                          Old school Mexican genetics.. lol


                          The male came from seed out of pre 1990s Mexican weed found in Southern California... Meaning to me at least, it was never worked beyond a field. From what I have read and found on the subject of
                          Mexican weed coming into the states, they were using the same strains from the 70-80s up till the beginning of the 90's when they started introducing the Indica hybrid's we have so many of today...
                          They also moved indoors and moved their mid and top shelf genetics up a notch... But that's another story...


                          I would say that is a mutant...
                          A beautiful thing through my eyes...
                          Much like you will find in BB and the like yet there is no way it's BB..lol



                          I would think those are possibly holding the genetic make up and flavor profile of some of the most interesting sativas found in mexico before everything went into the blender....

                          I will never forget the look on the breeders face when I told him I
                          not only got them to pop but found a male to boot...

                          It was like(Fkn shit) good for you man! You need to get real now!

                          Little did I know.... anyways,haha...


                          Im looking for the plants that look nothing like kong in either fan,structure or smells and will start my work for Old-school smoke from there... Would rather a non mutant thrashed looking plant but the shape of the leaves looks spot on what im after...lol
                          If they were green and healthy I would be like...
                          (Fkn shit) good for you man!

                              ""Get It Fucking Done. It’s the truth, it’s the one thing you learn real fast in life is that nobody gives a fucking shit about excuses and the sooner you learn that nobody really gives a fuck about you, that you need to get off your ass and make shit happen then the better off everyone will be""". - Zakk Wylde
