    Day 20

    At day 20 now. The stretch has stopped and the canopy is pretty full, started pk 13/14 for a week, will repeat at week 5. The c99 is frosting up already, smelling of dank pineapple. The second Afghaan is bulking up quite well already, think she'll be a decent producer. Afghaan 1 hasn't really kicked into gear yet but still has a nice rosemary/herbal smell. The GG4 x SFV stretched the most and should be a decent producer as well.

    After my post I took a bud out of my C-Vault . She smells like chocolate and berry-ish hash now I still have a few weeks to go but I like her more and more . If you can afford to set some aside for a cure You will see a big difference . Enjoy !

    Thanks Bart, good to know others have grown her and enjoyed it. I'll try to give her a good cure, I'm pretty bad at doing that though, I smoke too much haha. Maybe I just need to grow more then...

    The C99, she's starting that Pineapple smell I've always heard about, I'm really looking forward to how this one turns out:






    Afghaan 90 #2, she's a bit more fussy, is even throwing up a fasciated top, looks ans smells rather different than the other Afghaan, looks a bit more like a modern hybrid:

    Day 11/12 of flower

    Looks like stretch is nearing the end on the girls. The GG4 x SFV cross stretched the most, but had been vegging longer and was real slow to start. The rest has a little upward growth after switching to 12/12 but not anything unmanageable. The second Afghaan 90 (the one in the back right) has started fasiation on one of the tops, the rest seem fine. Photos...


    Afghaan 90 #1, this ones my favorite so far, she has a crazy herbal smell, started off straight rosemary, but now is putting out some proper dank/hash smells with a herbal undertone:







    GG4 x SFV, I'm liking the growth she's finally showing in flower:

    I subscribe!!

    Love the old afghan!!!
    I had an old strain from Afghanistan, called the Gen&Tik cut on French boards. It looks like very similar to those you are growing.

    And I'm following too the C99. Nice memories with this strain.

    Very interesting thread!!

    Switched them into flower a few days back (4 I think, have had a long long weekend so can't remember if it was Friday or Thursday I did it). Reduced the feed to ec 1.2 and raised the lights a bit, they seem to have improved a fair bit and are drinking a lot each day. Not too much stretch, but the gg4 x sfv is still bulking out, as is the c99, probably a little more to do with the larger containers (6l) but the Afghaans are stretching a little bit too in their 3.5l containers. Took 3 clones from each plant, all 12 managed to root within 7-10 days, so that's always promising. On to the pics...

    Thanks guys. Yeah I love a good Afghan myself, but I don't know much more about these seeds than what's been written at Real Seed Co. I'll ask on the real seed co thread, someone may know there. They're pretty cool looking plants so far, the first one has a very unusual smell on stem rub, smells exactly like rosemary, would be pretty cool if that transfers to the flowers. The other one is a classic hashplant smell. Can't wait to see how their flowers look. Pretty excited about the c99 too, never had the chance to smoke any back in the day so will be cool to see what the hype's about.

    I've also got 2 Iranian Indicas from RSC going outside, one male and one female. The male is really interesting in how it looks and grows so I'm thinking I keep it and save the pollen from her to dust some of my other stuff, an Afghan and Iranian cross could be quite interesting.

    Female Iranian Indica and another plant:


    Male Iranian Indica and a female unknown sativa hybrid (The Iranian plant has out paced it in upwards growth, but isn't as bushy):
