    Hey Stoner, I probably won't start a new thread. I'll just document the grow here. Just a pain to have two threads going.

    So everything was going well with the GDP and Cherry Pie seeds until I put them in peat pellets. As I mentioned, I hadn't done them in a while and just for fun, I gave them another shot with these seeds. They all had cracked but all but three Cherry Pie's have broken ground. I dug the other 7 seeds out and although cracked, they hadn't gone any further since planting. So, I placed those 7 in rapid rooters in my propagation dome this morning as I've had good luck with those a few grows ago. Now for some patience...I guess this is a lesson to stick with what works for you and it varies from grower to grower.

    I've also placed a humidifier in my flower room yesterday. In the winter my Rh sits around 30-35% which I know is way too low. This should make the TOC's smile a bit.

They are all now in the peat pellets in my propagation dome. They are all planted and ready to show some green through the surface!

    that's awesome news and congrats. are u going to make a captain redbeard thread for his gear. i been looking for grow on his stuff?


    i already took the plunge, have some of his stuff in vault. only thing is they are no where remotely close to being run as they are pretty new. i have recent new bean up to 16-18 yr old beans to try and germ 1st.

    I predict you are going to see some big buds on those plants come harvest time, Jerry.

    So the the (NL#2 x Chem) x OPG are down and hang drying. Not a bad run but there is better out there so I have no regrets not keeping her around. Yesterday, the Tropic of Senser's left the veg tent and moved into the flower room under the 1000w hps. I think the 315 cmh that I have in the veg tent serves it's purpose well. They sat in there for 8 weeks before I put them into flower on Jan 31st. They are now all at around 36-40 inches tall and looking very healthy. I'm happy with that light.

    I decided to get some of Captain Redbeard's seeds going next. I just dropped his Cherry Pie and Granddaddy Purps into water this evening. Just for fun, I am going to give peat pellets a try again for germination. I'll pull them out of water tomorrow night and get them in wet towels until I see tails.

    Fuckin ehh!! Actually been toying with the idea of addin a early flower tent with 315cmh to tame initial stretch n tighten up internodal spacing. Will be watchin ya to see how she goes!!!

    Thanks for sharing!!!

    So it looks like the OPG cross will go longer than 10 weeks. I am just starting to get a few amber trichs and a good chunk are still clear on the mother plant. Recall all of the other OPG crosses I have in the flower room are about 1.5 weeks behind.

    Given that I won't have room in the flower room for a few weeks, I put my Tropic of Senser's into flower this weekend with them still in the veg tent. Very strange, out of the 7 plants, one was showing signs of a Mag deficiency. I gave her a shot of Cal-Mag and she seems to look a bit better. All of them are about 25-28" tall and not knowing exactly what kind of stretch to expect, I wanted to play safe and put them into flower. I only have the 315 CMH in there but for a few weeks they will be fine. I'm actually pretty impressed with this CMH light. Tight internodal spacing and vigorous growth for not a ton of lumens.

    OPG cross at 9 weeks

    It's been a little while - I hope everyone had a nice holiday break!

    So I have the Tropic of Censers by Brother Mendel Genetics vegging. I need to let my (NL#2 x Chem) x OPG finish flowering before I can get them in the flower room. I will probably let the OPG cross go near 70 days. Given my first run, I think this will be a pretty accurate finish for her.

    These TOC's are putting off a strong black pepper smell. Really interesting and even with my lousy sense of smell, I can strongly pick up the pepper. Nice vigorous growth so far with nice tight internodal spacing. Excited to flower these out and pull some clones. I gave these seedlings a bit of a rough start. My tent was sitting down around 65DF and I think it stunted some early growth. Either that or they take a little while to get their legs. Anyway, I put a little ceramic heater in the tent and am keeping the temp at 79DF which they are loving. This weather in the mid-west certainly makes for some dynamic indoor basement growing given we can see 5DF in the winter and 100DF in the summer!

    TOC's vegging - sorry...sideways.


    (NL#2 x Chem) x OPG early flower.

I would not call it a productive high as I was not too interested in house chores or paperwork. If you smoke too much, as I did one early evening, some paranoia can set in. It surprised me as I rarely get a hint of that anymore.

    She is definitely worth running again to try and improve results. I'm glad I have her in flower again. The single mother plant and the 8 seedlings I had taken are what's running currently. Excited to have a good amount of her around to smoke for a while.
    Sounds like the best of both sativa and indica - without the extremes of both - nice to see she doesn't just get by on her good looks!
